Weather Modification: Oklahoma City, Massive Tornado Damage – RADAR Pulse – ‘HAARP Ring – Scalar Square Confirmation (Video)


Deadly El Reno, Okla. tornado was widest ever measured on Earth, had nearly 300 mph winds (Washington Post, June 4, 2013):

The tornado that killed 18 people, including 4 storm chasers, west of Oklahoma City Friday was wider than any tornado ever observed or surveyed according to the National Weather Service and leading tornado researcher, Howard Bluestein.  The massive El Reno, Okla. twister reached an unthinkable maximum width of 2.6 miles.

“This is the biggest ever,” Bluestein said.

The previous widest tornado record was the F4-rated (on the 0-5 scale) Wilber – Hallam, Nebraska twister that touched down on May 22, 2004.  It had a maximum width of 2.5 miles.

The El Reno tornado, originally rated an EF-3 (on the 0-5 Enhanced Fujita scale), was also upgraded to an EF-5, the most intense class of twisters.  The upgrade arose not due to the funnel’s width, but because of astonishing wind speed information sensed from several mobile doppler radar units that were in the field, staffed by research meteorologists.

Bluestein, a University of Oklahoma professor, said two of his graduate students clocked wind speeds as high as 296 mph on their mobile doppler unit while observing the storm from the east.

That 296 mph gust came close to matching the highest wind speed ever measured on Earth.  Joshua Wurman, another leading tornado researcher who runs the Center for Severe Weather Research, and his team clocked 301 mph winds in a tornado that struck near Moore, Okla on May 3 1999.

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: Blaming Turbulent Weather On Global Warming Is Extreme Nonsense (Forbes)

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: Blaming Turbulent Weather On Global Warming Is Extreme Nonsense (Forbes, May 26, 2013):

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) wasted no crisis knowing what and whom to blame following the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma. Republicans caused it to happen through anthropogenic (man-caused) global warming. “When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas.”

So what about all that hot air? Is it possibly coming from none other than the senator himself? Well-respected meteorologist Joe Bastardi believes so, and will explain why.

Mr. Bastardi’s reputation for bold and accurate weather forecasts has landed him interviews on numerous major television programs, including Fox News Live, the O’Reilly Factor, Your World With Neil Cavuto, and Imus in the Morning, to name but a few. Many companies across a multitude of industries use his analytical services which correlate similarities between current and historical weather patterns to predict likely developments.

UK Weathermen Sued Over Pessimistic Forecasts

In Harbinger Of Things To Come, UK Weathermen Sued Over Pessimistic Forecasts (ZeroHedge, Oct 3, 2012):

While some of us grow weary of the incessant optimism among our economist elite – and their error-prone forecasts and Birinyi-ruler extrapolations, the Brits have decided enough is enough. The leisure industry is suing the weather-forecasters for coming up with “such pessimistic forecasts predicting rain.” In some of the most perfect analogies for our woeful economists, The Telegraph notes that “The Met Office forecasters need to realise that everything they say has an impact on whether people go on holiday or go for a day out.”  But the weather service admitted (unlike our overpaid extrapolators) “No weather forecaster is going to get it 100 per cent right all the time. We have to tell the weather as it is that’s what our job is.” Of course, we have nothing to fear but rain itself and so the industry offers this little gem of honesty: “We’re not asking them to bend the truth, but just to be more careful with phrasing.” Perhaps we will soon hear this from our esteemed ivory tower academics: While we may have global thermonuclear warfare, it will generate a modest GDP bounce in several countries as a result of more than expected broken windows. All of this simply confirms that ‘we can’t handle the truth.’

Britain Faces Mini Ice Age That Could Last For Decades

BRITAIN FACES A MINI ‘ICE AGE’ (Daily Express, Oct. 10,2011):

BRITAIN is set to suffer a mini ice age that could last for decades and bring with it a series of bitterly cold winters.

And it could all begin within weeks as experts said last night that the mercury may soon plunge below the record -20C endured last year.

Scientists say the anticipated cold blast will be due to the return of a disruptive weather pattern called La Nina. Latest evidence shows La Nina, linked to extreme winter weather in America and with a knock-on effect on Britain, is in force and will gradually strengthen as the year ends.

The climate phenomenon, characterised by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Pacific, was linked to our icy winter last year – one of the coldest on record.
