How Predictable Has Earth’s Climate Been?

In the 1970s, when we had fairly stable climate conditions, there were speculations that the earth could be going into a very cold period. This proved to be incorrect because temperatures warmed up and the global warming mantra kicked off.

We experienced a period of severe weather conditions after this period, and then we started hearing ‘climate change’ all over the world.

The question now is this: have we really been able to correctly predict what the earth’s weather is going to be, or are we simply figuring out words to falsely predict our planet’s weather? It just seems as though the earth is simply following a systematic pattern or cycle that we have not been able to correctly understand.

We really have to admit that the global warming exponents have been very flexible and adaptable about the answers given to bugging questions concerning our earth’s climate.

Climate-Change

Recently, we have had a new phrase in our climate change dictionary: Global Climate Disruption. It has been said that climate change is directly related to the frequency of hurricane occurrence on the earth.

This raises another question, how then do we explain some really weird events in the earth’s weather that took place in the early 1930s and those hurricanes that happened before we started naming them?

In fact, so many of the predictions concerning climates have proved false, leading us to wonder what premeditates those climate alarms.

Well, we can only conclude that the earth has been going through series of cycles in its climate, and until we come to understand it, we can only speculate at best.

Understanding Extreme Weather Conditions Using Weather Simulators

So many people have experienced severe weather conditions ranging from hurricanes to wildfires, storms and even dust storms, all of which can be very disastrous on people and property. These people have firsthand experience what it means to survive these weather situations already.

Some others have not experienced any sort of extreme weather condition, which explains why they seem not to care when told to evacuate because a serious storm is coming.

So what if some weather simulators were developed that could allow people have the experience of an extreme weather condition like a storm in real life?

The truth is that most people living in some parts of the world really don’t know what wildfires are like, neither can they imagine how strong wind storms can be. Such 140 miles an hour winds that can literally blow people away. Maybe by blowing strong air on people that could knock them onto soft surfaces, they’ll get an idea what wind storms are like.

These could be set up in amusement parks, or can be built in such a way they are taken round the communities during events. This will also be very vital for the kids to know what storms are like. And more importantly, learn how they can survive during such situations.

When this happens, you won’t be surprised to see some these kids choosing to become Coast Guards, or join humanitarian units that help people trapped in such extreme situations in the future. Their minds will begin getting ready to solve future challenges associated with weather circumstances.
