Hailstorms Break Records All Around the Planet: Must Be Al Nino*

Snowplows remove hail drifts
Extreme weather freaks already know that the incidents of mega hail storm events have been increasing this past decade (indeed, since the Fifties). This past spring has broken all kinds of hail size and intensity records, with The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. accumulating 500 more reports of 1-inch diameter or larger hail that the average established between 2005 and 2011. Property damage is in the billions once again. But for pure visual effects, you can beat the storms in Amarillo, in which road crews were called out to plow the hail off the roads which accumulated in drifts up to 4 feet high. Some of the climate skeptics left their climate labs long enough to claim the pictures were doctored, but NOAA says different. The agency’s official position is that extreme precipitation events are increasing, and that they believe them to be the result of climate change.

  • In Nebraska, a storm that impressed even the locals (it was that “we’ve never seen anything like this before comment”) brought three foot drifts of hail.
  • Softball sized hail damaged 50,000 cars in St. Louis.
  • Nearly a $billion in damages was wreaked by a June storm in Dallas with hail stones so large that even professional alarmists such as our own selves have a hard time believing.

This is all predicted in the Old Testament: “… hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?”
(Job 38:22-23)
We can’t prove weather or not these events are caused by Jahweh or by climate change. But they are happening with greatly increased intensity all around the planet. Hundreds have been killed in China already this year, with unusual events in Poland, Germany, Georgia the country of, England and an unending list of other locations. So what’s the market for steel umbrellas?
