"Michigan hit with ‘500-year’ flooding"

Media blames global warming, but I think it’s an indication that we’re headed into the next ice age.

For starters, look at where this occurred.

“Areas where colding should become noticeable during an oncoming glaciation should correspond to areas where thick ice is known to have existed during previous glaciations,” reader ‘Watchdog’ points out.

“This regional map of Canada and the USA is an indicator.”

“Michigan hit with ‘500-year’ flooding,” reads the headline.

Rising flood waters, already as high as five feet, submerged parts of the central Michigan on Wednesday after days of heavy rain led to the failure of two dams and the evacuation of thousands of people.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of “life-threatening” flooding as water levels of the Tittabawassee River in Midland, about 120 miles northwest of Detroit, reached historic levels and were expected to continue rising.

“Experts are describing this as a 500-year event,” said Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “It is going to have a major impact on community and on our state for the time to come.”

The website clickondetroit blames global warming, and believe it or not, I think they’ve got it partially right.

They explain it this way:

“Extreme precipitation events are definitely occurring more often, and there is a very simple reason why: as Earth warms, more ocean water is evaporating into the atmosphere.

“Since it is this atmospheric humidity that storms turn into precipitation, storms now have more “juice” to work with, and are producing more extreme precipitation events worldwide as a result (and yes, that also includes snow).”

I would need them to change only one word, and I could agree with the above statement. If they would change the one word, ‘Earth,’ to ‘ocean warming,’ I could agree with them.

Of course, as you already know if you’ve read Not by Fire but by Ice, I think ocean warming is driven by underwater volcanoes, not by humans.

As I keep saying over and over again: “Warmer oceans and colder skies…a deadly combination. (Underwater volcanoes heat the seas while above-water volcan0es cool the skies.)

“They say it’s a 500 year event,” says reader David Dean. “Well maybe it’s 10,500 year event.”
