The summer of death: The world is staring down a summer of disasters

The U.S. and the world are in store for another summer of extreme heat, hurricanes, droughts and wildfires — threats that are all escalating in the last few years.

Summer used to be synonymous with freedom and fun. Now, the Union of Concerned Scientists, an environmental research and advocacy organization, refers to it as “the danger season.”

Parts of the Arctic are already burning. So are parts of New Mexico. After two years of especially devastating summer disasters, experts say the potential for catastrophe is only growing.

The warmer season comes with inherent natural variability. When that piles on top of larger trends related to our changing Earth, extreme weather events can vault from “rare and uncomfortable” to “unprecedented and deadly.”

And, again, it’s clear that the ingredients are there for another destructive summer.

Already this year, New Mexico has had its largest wildfire in the state’s history — and it’s still burning. And the fire season has not yet fully kicked off in northern California, the Pacific Northwest, northern Rockies or parts of the drought-afflicted Great Plains.

The long-term megadrought in the Southwest only exacerbates the fire risk. Drier conditions contribute to hotter air temperatures, further drying out soils and vegetation to make the landscape more fire-prone.

A searing heat wave is beginning to grip the Southwest this week, including Texas, threatening to stress the power grid. And the National Weather Service’s seasonal temperature outlook anticipates above-average temperatures this summer for nearly the entire continental U.S.
Outside the U.S….

The outlook can be even worse if we look at what’s going on around the world:

Heat came early this year in India and Pakistan. Temperatures soared above 120°F, setting new records as early as March.

In the Arctic this week, wildfires are already burning in northern Siberia and Alaska. The Siberian fire season may be more severe than usual due to the diversion of military resources away from firefighting and to the war in Ukraine instead.

All of the environmental, oceanic, and atmospheric conditions are loudly pointing to elevated risk for the rest of the year,” said Steve Bowen, head of catastrophe insight for Aon.

If you haven’t prepared yet, it’s time before it’s too late! Below a few things you may need to survive the approching disasters:

Whatever swirling, broiling tempests the summer has in store, it’s important to figure out how to mitigate and adapt to some of the impacts of these events.

Globally, the World Meteorological Organization, a U.N. agency, has undertaken a far-reaching, $1.5 billion initiative to bring early warning technologies to countries lacking such infrastructure. [Axios]

  1. It’s not the fact that it’s that much hotter than last year, it’s the fact that the magnetosphere has thinned out and the suns rays feel like needles shooting in to your skin.

  2. Yet all these increasingly extreme weather events coincide with the increasingly extreme amount of chemtrails I see going on in our sky’s.
    Funny how all these climate change enthusiasts never mention air pollution in their climate change scare mongering.
    I suppose if they did that people might put two and two togeather.

  3. I notice our Simmer came hot and early this year but really no different from the past few years in terms of heat. It’s Summer, ya know?

  4. The US Forest Service lit that fire in New Mexico. The Biden admin allocated something like $50 billion. They were burning the woods everywhere around here mostly on weekends and Sunday which I’m assuming is double time pay. Way to milk it. $50 billion is a lot of money. Way more than was necessary.

    “The Biden administration announced in January a $50 billion plan to stave off catastrophic wildfires that would more than double the use of planned fires and logging to reduce trees and other vegetation that serve as tinder in the most at-risk areas. Prescribed burns often are used in wildland areas that are too vast to thin by hand or machine.”

    Look at the people like PLO like Taliban they are enemies of Iranian and world occupy land of Araya illegally now they praise
    Imam Khamanie the current leader as a descendant from Mohamed and now they given him title of Return of Jesus Christ or Imam Mahdi or fifth Buddah… It is very funny lol… False prophet come and go he is one of them … Now they are trying to use emotions of people to make them obey Tyranny put by UK and … ? Regarding earth i do amend all of the responses i am agree indeed.

  6. It’s pretty hot up in the mountains near Grand cyn. 94°.
    I splurged last year, and purchased a solar a/c unit. Panels on roof, system uses panels, and house solar. Red indicator light signals use of house solar. Green light indicates panel powered. So far, it works darn good for 1500 sq ft. I use fans to cycle air throughout house. Daisy chain fans, and let ’em rip. I think I need more panels on rooftop though. That way it runs exclusively off panels. Won’t tax house solar power as much.
    I spend 4 hours a day watering my 300 trees. Next year I have to make an irrigation system. I usually water 2 hours in AM, and 2 hours after 6PM by hose. Pain in the ass.

  7. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    1 The Earth is cooling because the Sun is in a Solar Minima (NASA).
    2 This minimum named the Eddy Minimum will be 6-10% colder than the Maunder Minimum.
    3 Volcanos are pouring Mt of ash high in the atmosphere which cools the Planet.
    4 The Earth’s climate is cyclical .
    5 CO2 was at 3000ppm thousands in the past.
    6 Warm planet means a thriving Planet-a cold planet means a starving Planet.
    6 AND Humans van NOT ‘fix’ anything as massive as the Earth’s atmosphere.
    7 electroverse.net for FACTS.

      • Thanks .50.
        Whoever writes this tripe doesn’t or won’;t accept the fact that the worst fires in North America were in the late 1800’s.
        AND the Earth is now cooling down (reason in previous post) and it is getting colder OVERALL.
        Look at realclimatescience.com and Tony Heller has graphs, records and news articles from way back when that show the facts.
        Be safe, use black col pipe (1/2″) for your irrigation lines (just drill +- a thousand small holes on one side and water away!

    • Liars! The chemtrails sprayed every day globally for thirty years are hiding the approaching red Planet X system. Planet X caused the sinking of Atlantis and Noah’s flood. This time around it will end WW3 when it rips North America into thirds, erupts Yellowstone super volcano and kills 5/6 of the 200 million SCO invaders. The day of the next false flag using the nuke the criminal bastard government stole in 2007 and blamed on Iran is the day America will be nuked and invaded by Russia, China and the whole SCO. All planned by your evil criminal bastard government! Execute the criminal bastard government very soon or die in WW3!

      • Hey I 👀 your paying attention – see the Deagle report – see Georgia guide stones – lastly the Bible is the Final arbitrator of the truth.

    • stop putting facts up you are a rasist bigggoted wallorer, please see talking points form Nancy. Or go to local lodge for some 33 fun.

    • Most of Minnesota was below zero from mid December to mid march maybe 80% of that entire time. Growing up in northern Wis I remember days at a time that stayed below zero, but nothing close to entire winter.
