No U.S. category 3 hurricanes for more than a decade

I’m glad the science is settled! Despite predictions more than a decade ago that the world was faced with increased extreme weather due to human-caused global warming, including more hurricanes that were more powerful, the United States has now set a record for the longest stretch ever recorded, 129 months, without a single major hurricane.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    The propaganda is so bad, they now name winter snow storms! When every third news story has a Mention of global warming, you have to wonder why, gratuitous use just makes me think something’s up, and it’s not climate or weather.

    ” When every third news story has a Mention of global warming”

    I’ve noticed the same thing. Seems like so many things I read blame whatever it is on “Climate Change”.

    I’m not buying it either.

    Since there’s been no global warming since 1998,this is no surprise. CO2 in itself does not melt ice. It greens the world. Human CO2 emissions have thus far only had good effects. More wild life everywhere. More food produced per acre so that actually less areal is used for farming, to feed the growing richer human kind.

    All those who bought stuff because it was “climate smart” actually murdered wild life. The more they reduced their “carbon foot print”, the more wild life did they murder. They didn’t want to kill those wilds animals and burn down their habitat. They were just stupid enough to let themselves be fooled by the corrupt politicians to do it anyway. Brainlessly believing it was good.

    We should introduce a retroactive fine on everyone who has participated in killing wild life by trying to stop our life giving emissions of CO2. They have accumulated a debt of death to the entire world.
