I am sometimes asked how I predicted the collapse of the climate so accurately. My answer is simple: I didn’t deny reality. Now, as I watch the horrific fires in Siberia and the Pacific Northwest, the devastating floods in Europe, and the agonizing destruction caused by the latest superstorm, Hurricane
Super Typhoon Yutu, packing sustained winds of 180 miles an hour and likely producing gusts at or above 200 MPH is hammering the Northern Mariana Islands. It is the strongest storm to form on Earth so far in 2018 and is hitting Tinian, Saipan and Rota. It is the most powerful storm ever to stirike the Northern Marianas and is among the strongest tropical cyclones recorded in modern times. It is similar in strength to Super Typhoon Haiyan which killed thousands of people in the city of Tacloban in the Philippines in 2013. Because the storm is moving through and area with light upper level winds it is traveling slowly. Because it is over an area of extremely warm water, it could continue to intensify.
Hurricane Michael, currently a catergory-1 storm, is tracking northward across the Caribbean, and is expected to make landfall in Florida on Wednesday. The storm is currently over Cuba, and is expected to strike the Florida Panhandle as a category-3 hurricane, with wind speeds up to 129 mph. Due to the high warmth of Gulf of Mexico waters, the storm could strengthen dramatically and suddenly as it moves off Cuba and out into the Gulf. This is what caused Hurricane Katrina to become such a severe storm as it moved onshore over New Orleans in 2005.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence is developing according to the same scenario that Unknowncountry has been warning about since the publication of Whitley Strieber and Art Bell’s book Superstorm in 1999. Katrina, Sandy, Harvey and now Florence have all come into contact with unusually warm inshore waters, causing them to strengthen dangerously as they moved onshore. Addiing to this problem, the storms have been slow moving due to the general decline in air circulation and the weight of the water vapor in these very large cloud masses.
