Readings Have Been Unique of Late and my Tornado Taming Efforts to this End – Background and Overview.

May 20th, 2013

As I have stated in several of my more recent blog entries, my observed readings of late have been erratic and unpredictable.  Not only have the readings been unique to say the least, the readings have also seemed to change drastically from moment to moment – going from strong to weak and additionally to unusual at nearly any given moment.  The scrambled signals seem to have been occurring for several weeks as far as I can tell.  As a matter of interest, the readings have been so unpredictable and unlike any before that I have begun to believe that my entire baseline by which I judge the signals is no longer grounded in reason.  I have found no explanation by which to attribute the continued oddities of signal strengths uncovered during my randomly obtained measurements. 

To be clear and as I have also blogged before, I have no permanent monitoring equipment. Essentially, I monitor these signals and pursue my studies on a hobby-type of basis at best. 

I monitor these signals because I believe that I may have gained some insight regarding atmospheric conditions here at the Southern California coastline and the subsequent appearance of tornadic storms elsewhere in the heartland.  In other words, I believe there is some correlation between the Pacific oceanic environment and the appearance of tornadoes elsewhere in North America.  No other tornado researcher types seem to even acknowledge such a possibility as the likely influence of the Pacific on the formation of tornadoes.  As such, to some my ideas may sound as hog-wash while to others it may sound as obvious or elementary, but I believe it goes deeper than all that they know to discredit.  Of course, my theories go even farther in attempts to explain what a tornado might actually be in reality as well.  

I believe that certain university researchers from circa 1930s stumbled onto this same correlation as to predicting in-coming severe weather but such was never pursued by others.  Although whatever those professors may have discovered could have been sucked-up into the war effort and then sent underground, so to speak, as far as the dissemination of knowledge is concerned.  However, in the end – of course – I could also be mistaken and at best I may only be attempting to reinvent the wheel.  But again, I don’t really think so.

In pursuit of my hobby, I have relayed my ideas to others in attempts to gain some amount of minimal funding to actually attempt to do some realistic and scientific type of studies to this end.  But as of yet, I have yet to find any funding avenues for any research that would not be so paradigm-laden as to dismiss my theories out of hand, or so it would seem. 

Most notably The University of Oklahoma, as well as others like The University of California at San Diego (Scripps Institute), and the National Science Foundation all seemed to scoff at my ideas at best.  And while maybe I would not expect UCSD to be interested in doctoral studies geared towards tornadoes, and the NSF may require the backing of a major university or corporation, I sort of thought that maybe the University of Oklahoma and/or NSF might be nevertheless interested in pursuing higher risk studies aimed towards illuminating further insight as to what causes tornados and what are tornadoes (at a relatively low cost, it should be noted).  I guess I was wrong.  Or maybe I didn’t write my proposals well enough, or my undergraduate grade point was too low, or they merely wanted to keep all the funding for themselves – which seems just as likely to this blogger.  Then again, to even show any credence to any outside-the-box ideas might only stand to make those other researchers look bad, as if it were a no-win situation or so they might interpret it all, anyhow.  Also, worth noting, with all the billions of dollars spent to date to give minimal warnings of a few seconds relevant to approaching tornadoes, it would seem that in reality we may have just as well saved the money – if the tornadic destruction and devastation of this last week were any example, unfortunately.

The minds interested in tornado research that call the shots from places such as Norman OK and Washington DC simply appear to this blogger as closed minds to new thoughts on tornadoes, most likely due to the typical tornado paradigms beholden to, and created by, those same minds.   For a slight example, I mean…, surely there must be some amount of electromagnetic potential to these phenomena.  Yet I hear no tornado researchers ever even seem to mention such.  (One can only wonder what the Army’s HARP folks up in Alaska might have to say of this matter.  But if they wouldn’t speak to ex-Gov. Jesse Ventura, not very likely they will speak to me either, I suppose.)

Anyway, I did think it was somewhat coincidental that after my Ph.D. application to University of Oklahoma was denied – an application which outlined my tornado theories and particularly my ideas as to the influence of the Pacific Ocean on tornadoes in the Heartland, and sometime after my grant application to the NSF also had been denied, I thought it was potentially merely coincidental that it was brought to my attention that the University of Oklahoma then did some amount of statistical study to determine if El Nina and El Nino years of the Pacific Ocean had any influence on the appearance of tornadoes in North America.  As I recall, the study determined abnormal Pacific Ocean temperatures seemed to decrease the amount of winter tornadoes in most of the United States.  But again, the significance of that statistical study to me was that study was the first time that I ever read or heard of any other tornado researcher who even seemed to consider the influence of the Pacific on tornadoes in North America.  Of course, it is possible that I may be not as well-read as I should be on the subject.  But I had never heard of anyone other than myself acknowledging the possibility of any direct influence the Pacific might play on tornadoes in the Heartland – other than the typical weather forecaster who tells us all our storms typically come from a westerly direction due to the winds and jetstream over North America.  Certainly, or so it appeared, no one was even considering the physics of it all as I have been – albeit consideration and conjecture without any relatively low-cost and dedicated scientific monitoring equipment to see if my theory has any validity other than to pursue the matter as a hobby.  In my opinion, this is all so because theories such as mine seem too far outside-the-box for those that control the untold millions spent each year with only minimal success to date at best; again, as evidenced by the death and destruction due to tornadoes in the Midwest these last few days. Not that the tornadoes are any fault of the researchers, of course.  However, if the research were broadened or expanded, maybe there would be more worthwhile results to show the people for the investment in/sponsorship of the research with our tax dollars.

Please forgive me if any of the words of this blog strike of arrogance or bitterness on my part.  I am merely stating the facts as I see them – circumstantial or otherwise.  Regardless of any arrogance or bitterness on my part, it would all in reality amount to nothing.  Because those who sit in control of any such efforts and funding regarding tornado research for Our Nation couldn’t care less what folks like me would have to say on the subject of the formation of tornadoes, apparently.  I’m sure it is not possible in the paradigm-laden minds of the typical government-backed tornado researchers that anyone could have any insight which is not already provided to the well-funded researchers by their paradigms.  Maybe they are right.  As they have shown us so much for all the billions they have spent which all might amount to a moment’s notice when a tornado touches-down to earth, so how could they be wrong?  (With this last comment and question being intended as sarcasm, of course.)

PS.  I currently sit with no ears to listen for my signals.  The last I was able to check, as of this afternoon (the 20th), the signals still appeared as somewhat weaker than what is typically normal of late. Normally this would indicate no significant cause for alarm.  However, as I am no longer sure as to any baseline by which to compare....
