Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Jul 22, 2021 by Martin Armstrong
The climate activists come out with every disaster and blame climate change. The brush fires in Australia were climate change yet termite hills were taller than a truck for they have evolved to withstand natural brush fires. The collapse of the condos in Florida was immediately claimed to be caused by rising sea levels when it was faulty construction. Here we go again claiming extreme weather is all caused by CO2 and the flood in China is evidence of their theory with NO historical documentation whatsoever. The truth is that there was massive flooding in China in 1931 as pictured here.
This is NOT something new as they always claim. Indeed, nature conspired against Emperor Wang Mang in 11AD, who like Biden, was trying to create massively overvalued money which also ruined the economy. His wuzhu coins were set at 560 times their metal content which was not well received by the people.
Meanwhile, the Yellow River flooded killing many thousands that eventually caused a great famine and a plague. This led to civil unrest as a sign from heaven. Peasants migrated south and banded into larger groups. One of these groups rose, known as the Red Eyebrows, and they were strong enough that they defeated one of Wang’s armies. This led to widespread rebellions even in the capital. They stormed the palace and in a grand last stand, about 1,000 palace guards defended Wang to the last man. The rebels then killed Wang Mang bringing an end to his brief dreams of creating a new dynasty.
These floods are NOT something new. They have been taking place for thousands of years. The real problem is more than the immediate deaths from drowning. The crisis that has often followed is crop failures, starvation, and the rise of plagues from such events.
Today, if the masses stormed the White House, Biden would probably think it’s a party. They would be hanging the wrong guy. It’s the power behind the throne this time.
This is a photo of the Paris flood of 1910. The flood in Europe is also not unknown. We should expect rising floods with the greatest peak in this cycle arrives during the 2032-2037 time period and in the Western United States droughts.
So instead of blaming soccer moms for driving the kids and people who commute to work, just maybe we should be looking at extreme weather from a cyclical standpoint
