Drought

According to the Kardashev scale of civilization, there are three types of planets. Type one, type two, and type three respectively. Sadly, on this chart, our earth is a type zero.

Unfortunately, our science cannot control the weather. After a moderate amount of rain this past winter, California is already back into a heavy summer drought complete with the traditional forest and grass fires. As you can see in my video, Lake Mead is at it’s lowest level since it was created. This has got to have a negative effect on Las Vegas, and the other communities down stream of Lake Mead—including portions of Mexico, if you can believe that. CLICK HERE to read about the dispute.

On the other side of the coin, Memphis Tennessee, has an abundance of water, as does Costa Rica, where I live. Too bad we can’t control the weather, or can we? Some say that we can, and that we are, but not for the benefit of everyone. in fact, maybe the reverse is true. I don’t know if it is true, but it does seem that we should have a way of providing sufficient rain to the areas that need it.

Just thinking out loud.

Drinkable Water

Thinking out loud...

You may have plenty of good drinkable water where you live, but so many locations do not. Never fear, the profiteers are ready to assist you…for a price of course.  In some places, water is now more costly than an equal amount of gasoline. How strange is that?  Stories abound about someone, or a group of someones controlling the weather to make drought conditions. I have no knowledge of that, so I will just let it be a thought in the wind for now.  You can do your own research on that issue if you so desire.  However, if I were the evil overlord of the world, I would buy up all the water rights, and then start causing droughts. Sound too far fetched? Well the Internet is rife with information about this very thing happening right before our eyes, or so it seems. Here are some links that support those suspicions.

If you care to know more, do a web search for: Who is buying up all the water rights in the world.

It would be a great story were it simply a case of a benevolent company coming to the rescue, but I wonder if maybe something more sinister is afoot. If you can help clarify this situation, please share your information here.

Thanks,

Rain has come to Costa Rica


Captain’s Blog – May 2, 2016

The Rains have come to Costa Rica, and I am happy to report, that in most locations of country, the dry season has given way to the wet season. There is a mini dry season in June and July, but the rain never seems to completely go away during those months. October is usually the month when the heavy rains come, but if there is some rain each week, the people, especially the farmers will be happy. The question now becomes…will there be enough rain in the areas that grow crops and feed livestock? My feeling is this year Costa Rica will receive the rain where it is needed, but I am not in charge, so the farmers will do what they have always done. Rely on Mother Nature to bring the life-giving rain.
