Why South America’s Deforestation of the Amazon Rain Forest Causes Destruction in the US.

High School science teaches us why deserts are cold at night – due to the high heat dissipating/rising quickly into the atmosphere at the end of the day – causing wide swings in high and low temperature from day to night.  It also can teach us the opposite – that forests hold the heat in at night – acting as a regulator of the heat buildup of the day – preventing wide swings in highs and lows.

So, when South America deforests the Amazon rain forest in millions of acres, it’s easy to understand how no longer having trees over millions and millions of acres causes much greater heat dissipating/rising into the atmosphere. Then it can be understood that when this massive amount of heat from millions of acres of bare land moves over the Atlantic from the winds in the atmosphere, (here it comes) that the Atlantic waters off the northeastern and eastern coast of South America heat up, as well.

And, when the Atlantic Ocean’s waters heat up, this means there are more hurricanes and tropical storms. And, because of the increase in heat in the atmosphere from South America added to the normal heat buildup of summer and fall, the high temperature builds even more in the Atlantic creating, not just more, but bigger storms.

Hurricane Florence 2018

With the high pressure systems already over the US during summer and early fall, from the very real Climate Change, the high pressure systems more now push the hurricanes up the east coast instead into the Gulf of Mexico, instead of which happened during the 20th century. This pattern will continue to happen in the decades ahead because there will be little change to the circumstances contributing to this pattern.

I see even more destructive hurricanes over the next 7 years and some even worse than what we’ve seen so far. Watch for them beginning in 2020, then worse in 2021, then even worse in 2022 and 2023. Then lessening some in 2024, then less in 2025 and 2026.

These processes can be and are understandable to those “who have eyes to see”, meaning who still have open minds and a willingness to learn the reality that is upon us. This is one small and simplified explanation about how we’re all in this together, all over the planet. If anyone is wondering if something that happens on another continent can have a direct effect on us here in the US, ask the people living on the East Coast of the US.

It is appropriate to say, “What a small world we live in.”

  1. Jodie, clarifying here. I understand this to be saying that the storms are more likely to be driven up the East coast than into the gulf of Mexico. Is this the correct understanding of this post? Many thanks.


    • Since this deforestation has been ongoing for decades, this is why we’ve see ever increasing numbers of hurricanes go up the East Coast. There will be hurricanes going in both the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico, but instead of the old pattern of the Gulf being where most of them go, there will be a new pattern of more going up the East Coast. This new pattern sometimes even means that during some seasons more will go up the East Coast than go into the Gulf.


    • Yes, this is as I see it. However, I’m also seeing 2 smaller storms still entering the Gulf of Mexico. As of this writing now, I see one of the two going into the US, from Texas to Alabama, but I’m not seeing it be a hurricane. I see it being less than a hurricane, hence why it could be so widely spread out.


  2. Hi Jodie,

    As you know, I’ve often asked about the Caribbean and Puerto Rico in particular. Do you think it will get hit again. I’m very worried.


    • Thank you for the question. As of this date, I am seeing Puerto Rico being hit by another hurricane near the end of the 2020 season or during the 2021 season. This is not a long time from now. I see the hurricane going north of both Puerto Rico and Cuba, but it will be large enough to encompass both. I see it on a route towards the Bahamas. There is time enough now to change some of what I see, through prayer.
      I’m seeing a small storm passing through the Caribbean Sea, either 2019 or 2020, but I don’t see it forming into a hurricane. There is some possibility for a small hurricane or tropical storm in the early 2020 decade (2023 or 2024?)
