|14 African nations hit by severe flooding|

14 countries across the African continent have been hit by torrential rains, decimating crops and forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee from their homes. The worst affected regions are Ghana and Ethiopia, where dozens of people have been killed, and many more now face disease and starvation. Northern Ghana has been declared a disaster zone, where farmland which is used to produce food for the entire country is submerged under several feet of water.
Quote: "Parts of Ghana have been declared a disaster zone, while on the other side of the continent, many thousands are now homeless in Ethiopia and Uganda. The UN said the floods could lead to locust infestations and outbreaks of water-borne diseases such as cholera. The flooding and torrential rain have brought chaos to at least 14 countries.
I thought that was particularly interesting to read about the locust infestations, in light of the recent article on "locusts" in the book of Revelation. The severe flooding in Africa has come only a few months following the worst flooding to hit Europe in living memory. The bad weather destroyed crops across the continent, pushing the price of wheat to record levels. Last month I found an article on the internet which laid much of the blame for the flooding on the jet stream, the high velocity currents that encircle the earth. The article stated that the jet-stream is unusually far south at present, upsetting our normal weather patterns by forming bands of low pressure causing torrential rains.
Quote: "The rain as been caused largely by the position of the North Atlantic jet stream, a ribbon of very strong winds that brings weather systems across to the UK. For much of this summer, the jet stream was further south and stronger than in a typical year - bringing depressions across many parts of the country. Dave Britton, of the Met Office, said that, in isolation, the wet weather was not a sign of global warming. "One wet summer does not mean we are seeing climate change," he said. "In fact, if anything, we would expect to see drier summers, interspersed with heavier bouts of rain. "So, the potential for flash flooding is there, but the widespread flooding that we saw earlier this year is less likely."
That would not be so unusual if it were not for the fact that the jet stream can, and has in the past been altered by mankind. In the 1960s, both the US and the USSR exploded nuclear bombs in the upper atmosphere, temporarily changing the path of the jet stream. The jet stream can also be altered by beaming intense radio energy up into the ionosphere, through facilities such as the HAARP system in located in Alaska. Weather modification is real. It's real enough for the US Airforce to consider its use as a weapon of warfare...
Quote: "In 2025, US aerospace forces can "own the weather" by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications. Such a capability offers the war fighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map. A high-risk, high-reward endeavour, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary.
Now I'm not a conspiracy theorist by any means. But I do believe there is something fishy about all this talk of "global warming". Yes, the world's weather is changing, and dramatically. But whether that is due to carbon emissions or radio emissions is another story. One thing we can be sure of, what the Bible tells us about the end times will come to pass. A world government will be set up, and perhaps unusual weather conditions will form part of that push to unite all nations under one authority. In any case, the Lord has still left the final move for Himself.
