Sometimes you almost have to think that nature is part of some harebrained conspiracy theory (It isn't!) Warmer ocean temperatures are going to keep bringing us unexpected surprises like this from now on nonetheless.
We look at the world and see that we need big changes everywhere. Meanwhile thanks to Bush/Cheney (neocon) and Israeli (Sharon) influence, we have destabilized the Middle East and that Humpty Dumpty isn't going to be put back together again easily.
Where we do need change (if not destabilization) is with the autocratic Saudis who somehow can get away with democracy being a word used only as a punch line. Or with the Israelis where they keep talking about being the only democracy in the Middle East but do everything they can to prevent democracy in Palestine while taking more and more of their land.
And then along came Nature who doesn't play favorites, who doesn't play politics and who doesn't play games either.
The world is destabilizing in case you haven't noticed. Yeah yeah it is localized you may say but local is a relative term. Once destabilization was only Iraq then Afghanistan then ... and it has kept going. How did the Ukraine and Syria get mixed in and now Yemen and the Saudis and what was that about China and missile cruisers being shadowed by Chinese fighter jets?
Cyclone Chapala ... could someone tap that republican climate change denier on the shoulder and ask them when was the last time they saw a hurricane in the desert like we see them these days?
Meanwhile with climate catastrophe drawing ever closer and ever faster too, we dance to the politics of war music, a song heard many times before in history.
We are dancing to war while we delay protecting ourselves from severe climate change and it makes cooperation between various countries impossible just when cooperation is needed most.
Bombing hospitals, shooting at doctors and journalists? We've lost our path and wander aimlessly in the wind...
... winds that are 155mph...
Are we feeling dumb enough yet?
One has to wonder.
