- Geoengineeringwatch.org Weather update January 12 2014 (GeoEngineeringWatch):
California had yet another chance of rain completely “sprayed away”. The total precipitation from this storm for parts of Northern California where I live was only a few hundredths of an inch, the weather makers absolutely will not let the rain fall in our state for now. To give prospective to this my location is now some 250 inches short of rain for the last 7 years, that’s over 20 feet of rain. In contrast to the intentionally induced California drought, on Friday Palm Beach Florida got pounded with almost 24 inches of rain. Almost 2 feet of rain in a single day. This is geoengineering, this is literally “weather warfare”.

- California drought: Scientists puzzled by persistence of blocking ‘ridge’ (Christian Science Monitor, Jan 21, 2014):
While much of the United States has experienced a weather year with fewer extremes and an easing drought, the record-breaking California drought – the worst since 1895 – is not leaving the region anytime soon, according to climatologists.
The unseasonal balmy but dry weather is the result of an equally unprecedented high pressure ridge lurking offshore and blocking the typical winter storms needed to drop precipitation all along the West Coast.
This ridge has persisted for 13 months and the longer it lingers, the less likely it is to leave, points out climatologist Brian Fuchs, from the National Drought Mitigation Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. This high pressure ridge system is feeding on itself, “creating a sort of perfect environment for perpetuating the dry conditions” it creates, he says.
High-pressure systems are not uncommon, but it is abnormal for them to hang around uninterrupted for so long. “This makes it even harder as winter storms approach for them to break through and change that pattern,” he adds.
This recent dry spell accentuates a continuing background condition of prevailing drought across much of the Southwestern US, notes Christopher Williams, a specialist in US drought conditions and an assistant professor at Clark University’s Graduate School of Geography in Worcester, Mass.
Precipitation is below 20 percent of normal and signs of the drought impact run across the region, including low river flows, low snow packs, low reservoir levels, and out-of-season wildfires.
“Wintertime shortages are particularly worrisome,” adds Mr. Williams via e-mail, “because winter is a key time of year for building up water supplies that carry the West through the rest of the year.” What is worse, he says, “shortfalls extend well beyond the state of California itself, reaching nearly all of the remote regions on which the California water supply network relies, particularly the Colorado River Basin.”
Scientists are uncertain as to why the ridge has stubbornly refused to break down and allow incoming storms to hit land. Climate change may be one of many factors, suggests Mr. Fuchs.
“It’s always difficult to know if a specific disaster or storm is tied to climate change,” he says, but over the course of decades it is possible to see large trends moving in a certain direction. “You can’t really pinpoint one thing, but you can say that over a period of decades there is less snow accumulation and warmer temperatures, and climate change is playing a part in that,” he adds.
On Friday, California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency, calling for a 20-percent voluntary conservation effort state-wide.
This is just the beginning, says Doug Parker, director of the California Institute for Water Resources. “We have seen essentially no rain or snowfall this year and short- and long-term forecasts are bleak for California,” says Mr. Parker via e-mail, adding that this means that California will have very low water deliveries to much of its agricultural sector.
This agriculture is an important part of the state’s economy, points out Parker. “This will lead to fallowing of farmland which will reduce output and reduce employment,” he suggests, adding that could drive up the prices of certain commodities. In addition, the dairy and meat sectors will be particularly hard hit, he notes, as those sectors will have to import feed.
The drought throughout the West will impact other states similarly, points out Parker.
The drought will increase pressure on already over-used groundwater supplies, says Parker. “We have seen dropping groundwater levels in many parts of the state. We expect growers to increase use of groundwater, especially for tree and vine crops. This will accelerate the decline in groundwater,” he adds.
Little currently on the horizon offers much hope for change, says California climatologist Mike Anderson, with the Department of Water Resources.
This offshore ridge is very stable, he says, adding, “this is good news if you want nice weather, but if you want precipitation it is not.”
- Satellite Photos Show Pacific Storms Stopped Cold, Destroyed (Pakalert Press, Jan 10, 2014):
Thanks to satellite weather photos, we’ve been able to observe a persistent, virtually permanent, huge, blocking High Pressure system off the West Coast for the last two months…most of November, December and into January.
We have watched the satellite photos reveal how storm after storm formed up, as usual, in the Kamchatka, Korea and Northern Japan (Fukushima) areas of the North West Pacific.
We’ve watched them move from West to East – like they have always done – to deliver their life-giving rain and snow to keep the US green and verdant. These storm systems, wave after wave, fill our lakes and rivers with water, rain on our vast agricultural lands and cover the Sierras, Cascades and Rockies with snow.
However, for some *strange* reason, not one of them has made it through the immense high pressure blockade sitting off the West Coast this winter. Why? These often robust rain systems run into the High Pressure ‘brick wall’ and are broken down into pieces with much of their water content raining back into the Pacific.
It *might* be these storms are carrying a lot of radiation and ‘someone’ has decided it would be best if they were prevented from getting to the West Coast because if they are carrying radiation, countless thousands on citizens would be measuring and reporting via YouTube, etc, the sudden uptick in CPM rates.
It is widely believed that human emf geoengineering technology can erect and keep high pressure systems in place, if so desired. Is that what is happening to the West Coast… is this an effort to keep Fukushima radiation from blanketing the Western US…even if it is just for the time being?
Watch the sequences of date-stamped satellite photos below. Remember also, high pressure systems are round, circular mountains of air spinning in a clockwise rotation. High pressure systems do not lay out in squares or drastic 90 degree configurations. Take a look. Follow the storms as they move from left to right and what happens to them.
Some of the pieces end up being pushed by the Jet Stream up into British Columbia, across Canada and then dropping down into the Central US. That would explain by Geiger counter readings of some of the current snow in Missouri measured 100% over normal background.
The High Pressure Ridges appear as clear spaces off the West Coast…

Here we are two days later and you can see the High Pressure is back off California, stronger than ever…
