Do you have a winter forecast for the US for 2017-18? A.K.
First and foremost, you’ll always find me writing that the meteorologists/scientists who are involved with predicting weather, are valid in their research, understanding, and predictions. This is true for the short term – one season, as well as the long term – decades ahead. The science is valid and worthy of serious attention and response with regard to Climate Change, Global Warming or whatever any of us calls it. When examining these statements against any who oppose them, look more at the hearts of the individuals, and what anyone’s hearts cause to come out of one’s own mouth. Weigh that which is within one’s heart and look for this one’s agenda and motivation.
The US has a variety of weather areas and each one will be somewhat different. I’ll add also that the weather is like a stairway, each level is dependent on the previous level. Each “stairstep” builds itself off the previous “stairstep”.
The Southwest: last year was warmer than average. This year is going to continue this pattern. Dec and January will be comparable to last years, with only slightly colder temperature. February will see the 2 middle weeks being slightly colder than last year, but warmer than would be called “average”.
The Southeast: I see a dryer winter for the S.E. for all 3 months. I also see higher temperatures than would be considered winter temperatures. This is for the 1st 2 months, then some colder weather in February, than in the Dec and Jan months.
The Northeast: There’s no escaping the cold weather in the N.E. I see frozen temperatures – solid frozen. I see an average amount of snow. While Dec will come in weak, January will be windy and cold. February will be frozen cold, but warmer temperatures will come in earlier in March than years past.
Midwest: The M.W. is going to get hit with cold wind. Lots of snow will cover the plains regions. This is getting to be a new normal winter for this region. In future years, there will be very few winters that are not like this. Except for a slightly warmer 2018-2019 winter, all other winters for this decade will be COLD for this region. Absolutely this will affect crop growth.
New England area: December is when winter usually starts, but all meteorological predictions for November are already in and they predict cold in the Autumn month of November, also. December will be much colder than November. January will be a full-blown winter weather for the region. February will be disastrous with serious winter weather related problems. I see ice, wind and water problems.
Western US: For the most part, this region will not strongly experience serious winter weather. January will be slightly colder, but still not a hazardous situation. February will be slightly colder, but again, not serious and more closer to average.
Pacific Northwest: This region will experience what could be called an average winter. It will be slightly colder this year than last year, though in all 3 months. However, Spring will come in earlier for this regions – close to the end of February.
Western Central states: (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and surrounding areas) Again, meteorologists have mentioned cold fronts coming in November, and I would add this will build in December. There will be MUCH snow in the regions – for those who ski. The cold fronts coming through will cause temperatures to dip into icy temperatures. Much of the snow will turn to ice as the winter continues into January and the 1st 3 weeks of February. Again, I’m seeing an earlier than normal spring with regard to temperatures. The last week of Feb. will see temperatures rise, but there will be some late cold fronts in April and one in May, though not as bad as if it were Jan or Feb.
There will be a few anomalies this winter.
New Mexico will have several weeks of arctic temperatures in mid-January.
Eastern California will experience some warmer than average temperatures in the High Sierras overall. The winter temperatures will hinder the fires, but not stop them completely. A remnant of one fire believed to be burned out, will start up again in late November in the lower Sierras south of Yosemite, north of Kings Canyon Nat. Forest.
Tennessee will experience a pocket of warm weather with the Sun breaking through the clouds, in the midst of a cold front that would be happening all around them. It won’t last long. (1st half of January)
Any other “anomalies” are so insignificant and small that they could be considered normal, and so I won’t bother with them here.
I’m ready for questions.

Well, I’m still skeptical that warming would increase weather extremes but think it would enhance rainfall and lead to more flooding. My reasoning, the polar regions heat up a lot but tropical regions temps remain about the same. That reduces the temperature gradient which would reduce energy available for severe storms to form. But I don’t think CO2 is causing the warming. It’s a trace gas, only 0.04 percent of the atmosphere. Something else bigger is going on that’s warming the climate. Anyway I really enjoy your website. You probably have the best spiritual messages out of all thy psychics online. Have a happy new year. Joel
First of all, thank you very much for your good wishes for the new year, and may you truly be blessed by God during this next year. Also, thank you for contributing to the discussion on the blog.
Now, you did not request this, but I would like to try to mention some information which could offer some thoughts on the climate. I offer it as an effort only to give a simplified and much condensed perspective of some of the forces influencing climate and weather.
You’re right to think there are also other deeper forces at work with regards to climate change. By itself, CO2 build up wouldn’t cause changes if the CO2 stayed in one place. But, what CO2 does (plus many other factors) is throw off the balance of atmospheric pressure by the CO2 molecules’ activity generated by sunlight in the atmosphere. Greater heat (CO2 activity) creates greater pressure from greater total molecular activity, like heating the air in a hot air balloon causes the balloon to expand (expansion is an increasing of the molecular activity that happens). The heated air molecules are vastly more active pushing against each other creating that higher pressure (more active than non-heated air molecules).
Greater pressure builds up in certain areas. This pressure pushes on the atmosphere (up, down and sideways) creating more activity in the atmosphere. More activity in the atmosphere causes different patterns of atmospheric behavior than has been the usual atmospheric behavior in a particular area. More pressure creates stronger atmospheric forces pushing on the atmosphere, which cause changes in how the normal weather behaved around the planet. To use the balloon metaphor, as the balloon expands, it pushes the outside air outwardly like ripples in a lake when a boat is set down upon the water.
This means there are more planetary high pressure zones sometimes keeping low pressure zones from moving into an area- low pressure zones being that which helps bring rain – therefore an area has more droughts and heat buildup. This also means the higher molecular (air) activity of the high pressure atmosphere both pulls (yes, “pulls”) and pushes on the colder arctic air sending it further into previously non-arctic regions thus bringing temperatures lower further than they have been in usually hot regions.
It is the stronger of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet or put another way, the hotter of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet. Heat is building up in the arctic regions as well as other regions and therefore pushing the changed atmosphere out of the normal patterns – like coloring outside the lines in a coloring book.
What I mentioned before in other articles is something you hit upon in your previous comment – plants – namely trees. If humanity planted billions, billions and more billions of trees – instead of cutting down billions and billions of trees, we’d have a reversing force helping to make rebalancing happen, with a normalization happen in the atmosphere.
One of the other many factors which I alluded to at the beginning of this article and in the past is that as trees are cut down, the soil/land/dirt is exposed to the sun heating up the soil. Soil does not hold heat like trees hold/absorb heat, and so the sun heated soil allows greater heat to escape into the atmosphere at night – that’s why deserts are cold at night. Unfortunately, as more and more land is made desert-like by cutting down trees, more and more soil-born heat rises into the atmosphere, fewer trees utilize the CO2 and the “warming” process continues.
Again, this is by no means all the forces that are active in this process. This is only a simplified and much condensed explanation of some of the forces happening.
“Imagine a world where no science existed. On our planet, that world existed during ‘cave-man’ days. Imagine a world where no religion or spirituality existed. On our planet, that has been attempted in a few communist countries. Now, imagine a world where both science and religion/spirituality existed, even sometimes in conflict. This is the world we live in.
Both science and spirituality either serve humanity or harm humanity – determined by the heart of the person who chooses.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
(The original article was posted here on July 11, 2009.)
I want to bring up a few important points to answer this issue.
#1 God’s answer to any of our problems and difficulties has never been – “Don’t pray.”
#2 The Climate Change problems we have now are vastly created by human consciousness and only minimally by mother nature – whether believed or not. Those that believe this can know to take steps to help change this. Those that don’t believe this, usually do little to change this and usually create more problems. Sadly, many choose to not believe and not do anything to help, than believe and help the work of turning things around. But the Bible reminds us, “the prayers of a few will save many.” The prayers and meditations of those willing to work will change and influence all things.
#3 The weather and climate change patterns we have now are also partially karmic related and so, like any other karmic energy pattern manifestation – can be changed and healed through the raising of the vibrations through any means, including prayer and meditation. The amount of healing and rebalancing is directly related to the amount of prayer, meditation, and spiritual acts of brotherhood and oneness.
#4 If we’re concerned about what to pray for, always remember to include, “Father God, Mother God, please bring the life-giving help of all kinds for all people and all life according to what you know we all need. Let my prayers go to you to be used to help in whatever way you may know to use them. Here am I, use me and my prayers for your greatest will and service for all life. Amen.”
#5 It’s okay to pray for God’s will to be done, even with regards to weather and climate change, because God’s will has never been to punish and smite, and always been to show mercy and give life – even in the form of healthy weather patterns. God is also desiring for us to learn that praying is worthwhile even if we have to learn how best to do it.
#6 Pray for healthy weather patterns. Pray for balanced weather patterns. Pray “HELP US, GOD!” Pray using no words whatsoever. Pray for whatever you feel okay with, just pray, and then let God decide what is possible with our prayers.
#7 Praying and meditating accomplishes more than “not praying” and “not meditating”.
#8 Praying is like building a bridge, with prayers being like the bricks from which the bridge is built. We can’t cross the bridge when just the first few bricks are in place. The bridge isn’t ready for use until the all of the needed bricks are in place, too.
#9 Praying is like rowing a boat. With each paddle in the water, and with each effort to row the boat, the boat moves eventually towards its destination. But, when we stop rowing, there is no progress towards any destination and we are left to the currents made by others’ Karma.
#10 What are we willing to pray for those we love? Are we willing to pray for healthier weather for those we love, because we know their lives will be helped from it?
#11 Nothing can stop God from helping in our lives more than a closed mind or a closed heart.
#12 Don’t put God to the test. Don’t guess what God needs to do or not do. God is not the one here needing to learn something – in this case – to pray – even if it’s for healthy weather patterns and healing the climate changes.
#13 God is not seeking just to change things on the outside of us- like the weather, but rather change things on the inside of us. It is this change that we keep with us through time, and eventually changes the outside of us – even the weather.
“Let God Decide What is Possible.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2007, Jodie Senkyrik)
First of all, in the category listings entitled “Predictions” on the right side of this webpage is a listing for “2015”. These are articles I’ve already written which include that which I see psychically ahead for the year 2015. So, there’s more information than what I’ll add here.
Second, there is no more need for a password. The article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, is now open for public viewing.
Third, I don’t profess, in any way, to see everything that will happen. I see what I look for in order to see. If I don’t look for it, I don’t see it.
Let’s get going…
Weather: As I’ve written before, the winter of 2015, January & February, now, will be a lot milder…. except for the areas around the Great Lakes, and in the New England states on up through Maine. These are going to be cold winters again. As I write this, there is a bad cold winter coming for Christmas for the Great Lake and New England areas and they’re going to have more on through to mid-March/end of March .
Meanwhile, the rest of the country as a whole will have uncharacteristically warmer weather. Get your snow skiing in early. Start your gardens early. Addendum on 12-27-14: Now I’m seeing a late cold front for the Midwest and Southwest at the end of March, 2015. If you start your gardens early, like I will be doing, be ready to deal with one last cold front at the end of March.
The Economy: There will be some details that will get brought forward in time, but the stock market will have a pretty decent year in 2015 and on into 2016, also. So, the economy is doing well, according to this psychic, and the stock market is doing well enough, also. It’s a mostly good year for investing. We’ll have one bad area of investing, but I’m not seeing what it is, yet. As the year progresses, I’ll keep looking to pinpoint what to watch out for. However, on the whole, it’s a decent year for investing, so let it ride for another year. The one area of investment that I’m seeing that will have a bad year is because of the bad things happening in the industry and the low public opinion. So, let this be a clue to watch for.
Gas Prices: Enjoy the lower prices while they’re here. Of course, they’ll eventually come back up, but we can enjoy the lower prices while they’re here. Their being low is helping people have more spending power which helps the economy. Remember this point, because the opposite is also true. (When the gas prices are high, spending power is reduced greatly which hurts the economy. This has happened before, hasn’t it !) Don’t let the low prices now fool you. Electric cars purchased yesterday, today and tomorrow hands down will be in better position for the future’s gas prices. These low gas prices will not last. The game of pricing gas will bring prices back up.
The Political Scene in Washington DC.: The best metaphor I can use for this particular collection of elected officials is – a car driving on wheels that are half round and half square. There will be a few months of teeth gritting cooperation, and there will be months when all hell breaks loose and they go at each others throats. Then, it will cycle through and happen again. (BTW, have you ever seen a car driving with square wheels? As the talking shrunken head on the Knight Bus in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” said, “Hang on. It’s going to be a baumpy ride.”) You knew that though, right?
Around the Nation: California’s water shortage will be getting worse. And worse. And worse, in the years ahead. What they need to do is plant billions of trees. As I’ve mentioned before, removing trees creates desert drought conditions over time. Putting them back restores a rain equilibrium. It’s not hard to understand, if you study the science of it. Trees act as insulation. They greatly reduce the great fluctuation caused by the heat buildup in the soil to the atmosphere which leads to high pressure which leads to drought.
Texas water drought will not be going away and Texas’s water wars are going to get worse. I use the word “wars” because that’s what it is and what it’s going to become even more. This will escalate on past 2015, 2016 and 2017. The government in Austin will wring their hands with being able to do nothing to get more water for people, while they allow for fracking to continue using greater amounts of ground water from all over Texas.
Midwest: The Midwest will see less rain than they need, but enough to continue to grow some food. Some areas will have enough, others won’t. In general for the area, the food production will be down, because they won’t have enough for all they could grow, but there will be able to keep most farming going. We’ll see some prices rise on food because of lower production. This isn’t news to anyone, but I don’t see the situation getting better. I don’t see it getting worse yet, either, in 2015. SIDE NOTE: If you haven’t started growing your own vegetables, it’s time to start. If you don’t know how, go to Youtube where you’ll find 1000’s of helpful videos that people have uploaded.
Pharmaceutical Industries or rather, the people who run the Pharmaceutical Corporations have slowly been moving in to control the medical fields, including the AMA licensing board. They have pretty much stacked the deck on the AMA, now. Almost all the personnel on the AMA are so far tied in to the Pharmaceutical Industries that there is very little stopping the people running the P.I. from running how medicine is practiced. Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners have a bull’s eye painted on them, and the rest of this decade, they’re the target of the Pharmaceutical Industry lobbies. This I psychically see to be where things are going. Doctors will almost be forced to prescribe drugs for conditions, or risk challenges to their licenses, even when better remedies are suggested. I don’t see good things for the medical field. As hard as it is to believe this, I see it psychically to be what is happening, but not easily seen by the public.
What I do see is that some practitioners will pull together to fight against some of this takeover, but they’ll need people supporting them. If people don’t affect changes via the voting booth, I see the people running the Pharmaceutical Industries controlling the practice of medicine for decades.
For individuals, medical information will be available on the Internet, but even that will be attacked using misinformation and outright lies (yes, it’s what I see psychically, believe it or not). Still, anyone who seeks Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners will find them. Just don’t forget that these people have an uphill struggle sometimes to be of service to you. Ask them about their “battle scars” sometime – in other words – ask them what they’ve faced to practice, and what their outlook is for their future practicing. Then ask them how one can help.
Oil Industry: We’ll see more oil spill accidents in 2015. I see one in Northeast Texas and one in one of the Midwest states – somewhere near the Kansas/Nebraska border. The damage being done by oil companies and their practices in the biggest part of the Midwestern states from Kansas to North Dakota to Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin is absolutely amazingly massive. Those states will suffer from this for this entire century. Very, very few are aware of how massive the damage is.
Natural Disasters: 1. I see the 2nd of 3 major world disasters happening in August, of 2015. The Japanese events of 2011 was the 1st of 3. This one will happen off the coast of Venezuela and the impact of the force will be southward. I go into more detail in the now unprotected article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, which I’ve added information to in reverse chronological order through the months I was becoming clear on the information. The earliest dates and information are at the bottom of the article. With this event, I see some potential impact on Florida, but not life threatening. The worst will be a wave of up to 3-4 ft in height – but, keep alert, in case I’m wrong about the height. There is much less danger to Florida than a hurricane would have been, because Florida is protected somewhat by other land masses in the Gulf. The most dangerous areas are the South American north coast line and the islands in the area. The islands northward are in harms way, although not as serious as the Venezuelan coast line, but some. Signs for this event will happen in June and July. I’m 98% sure of this as of this writing. … I see it beginning deep within the Earth – I interpret that as volcano and earthquake and tsunami, all 3. The US will be in a better position to help than so many others, but helpful response will come from all over the world.
Regardless of what I project as what will happen, stay alert to how or if it could get worse. Watch in June and July. Get ready. Prepare.
2. The Madrid Fault: In 2015, the Madrid Fault will only be slightly active. I see the potential for some small earthquakes through the year, but mostly in the 2 and 3 range, and only one possibly in the summer, July, maybe that will get to either a high 3 or at most a 4.
3. California Disasters: Summer forest fires, as usual. The loss of trees just makes things worse for California. I’m seeing potential for one large or a series of smaller earthquakes in the eastern area of Southern California. Not Los Angeles proper, but in the eastern half of Southern California – in San Bernadino County. If it’s not a large earthquake measuring 6.5 or thereabouts, it’s another type of disaster – like an extremely huge fire. But, I think it’s the earthquake. It will be felt from L.A. to the western half of Arizona. Many, many praying can bring this down to a 4 or 5 point earthquake. The maximum it will get is 6.7. I think the epicenter will be just east of Barstow, along Hwy 40.
4. Sunspot Activity: In 2015, it will be stronger than in 2014. Those who follow this will see the summer/fall months producing some very strong sunspots. VERY strong.
5. Hurricanes: The 2015 hurricane season will be moderately active. Currently, I see 3 hurricanes going up the East Coast and 3 Tropical Storms going up the East Coast. South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia will get the brunt of the hurricanes and Tropical Storms. I think 2 of the hurricanes will take most of their force up the coast and out to sea. Florida will have storms, but I’m only seeing 1 Tropical Storm causing serious problems for Florida. That one will be on the west coast of Florida.
The Gulf of Mexico will see a few hurricanes mostly small – almost just Tropical Storms, and going into Mexico and Latin America. Texas will see one storm during the hurricane season, but not a hurricane. I don’t think it will be formed into a Tropical Storm when it comes into the southern area of Texas – Brownsville to Corpus Christi. It will be more like a tropical wave or depression. It will bring rain.
Misc: I see something “odd” washing ashore on the California and maybe, Oregon coasts (mostly California.) If I’m accurate, this will happen in April through June, 2015. It looks like human-source debris of some kind – it would have to be a lot to be noticeable right now, psychically.
Around the World: I’ve focused mostly on North America because most of my readers live in N.A. I’m willing to take a few specific questions about different areas of the Globe – the more specific the question, the more specific the answer. I will choose only a few questions that are sent to me, but I won’t be able to answer all.
In 2015, China will take a more active role in world events. The Pacific Rim countries – I don’t see a lot of drastic or dramatic events happening. There will be news of the area, but nothing beyond the regular events.
The electronics industries of Asia will continue to do well and prosper in 2015. The Japanese Auto Industry will be stable as will the Korean, and the Japanese A.I. will be more stable and better for investments. Both will be worthy investments, though.
The Pope will be even more visible and active in 2015 than he has been so far. He will be traveling and making many very public appearances.
South Africa – in 2015, it will still experience social “growing pains” and struggles. But, slowly it will progress and move forward. I see effort and struggling and slow progress. This is a good thing. Slow progress is more stable than other types of “progress” because more people support it over all.
India will continue to grow in the business arena. India will be a good overseas investment area for long term investments. It will continue to grow for many years.
Finally, from specific areas to the globe.
Global warming is real and will continue to get worse. We’ve not seen the worst of it, yet. I wish I could say the opposite. There is no magic bullet or magic beans. ET’s won’t be saving us. Technology will help and hurt us both. The Earth as a place to live will become worse yet. Remember the analogy of the frog in the pot of water slowly coming to a boil. The frog dies, because it gets used to the water getting hotter. The frog dies, because it does nothing to change things. We are on the road to suffering more than anyone can imagine. I’m sorry. The good news is that the human race doesn’t lay down and let ourselves die. There are many that bring forth innovation and help. Support these.
These are dire words and I’m saying them, because we will need to rely on ourselves, individually, more and more with local centralized organizing serving local people the best. While life seems normal for some, we also know that we’ve been adjusting to the warming. If we were to jump ahead 10 years, we would see a world we didn’t recognize.
HOWEVER, !!! there are things we can do. We can do something about all this today – this year. Ideas are already out there. Actions to take are in place. Ignore those that deny this. Ignore them. They choose of their own free will to deny what is true, in other words- they choose not seeing – to blind themselves and to blind others. There is no changing the hearts of those who desire blindness. Don’t let them blind you. Ignore their words and move yourself forward with knowledge, cooperation, effort and practice. It is said, “Let those who are blind, stay blind. Those who have eyes to see, let them see.” Get your hands dirty in the soil of life. Join others, help, seek understanding. As we seek ways to move forward, we will find ways to move forward.
And remember, God is real, and more than our beliefs can comprehend. God is actively involved in our lives and very much aware of every aspect of all our lives (still beyond our comprehension.) Yet, God never forces His help where there is no open heart that seeks His help. Instead, God does fill the open mind and open heart -that welcome Him – to overflowing.
“No one understands the all of God. No book, no speaker, no story, no anything can ever hold an understanding of all of God. Consequently, no human understands the all of God – not even when we tell others (and ourselves) we do and pat ourselves on the back for being so smart.” (From the Rainbow Cards, ©, 2014, Jodie Senkyrik)
Sometimes, psychic information supports the scientific data that is brought forth; however, sometimes it presents it in a different way.
Around 1989 or so, I gave a reading on the Amazon Rainforest. At that time, psychically I saw that the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest – clear cutting hundreds of thousands of acres of the trees and vegetation – will contribute to a weather process that will be destructive to the United States.
As millions of acres of Rainforest are clear cut, and now, in 2014, have been cut down, the ability of the Rainforest to moderate the heat diminishes. Trees everywhere, and especially in forests, have the ability to trap heat. This capacity helps to keep temperatures of a forest region stable and within a moderate range. This also means that very little heat escapes into the atmosphere from that area.
When the trees are cut en masse, like they have been in so many areas of the world – in this case – the Amazon Rainforest – there is nothing to trap the sun’s heat. The heat then which is absorbed by the soil (land) during the day, then escapes into the atmosphere in the night. (This is why deserts get cold at night – nothing to stop the heat from rising into the atmosphere – leaving the air cold at ground level.)
The temperatures fluctuate in greater swings/ranges. In addition, the increased heat stays in the atmosphere and collects. In the case of the Amazon Rainforest, this massive volume of heated air via the consistent production of heated air then spreads and one of the area it spreads to is over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South America – the birth place of hurricanes. All hurricanes need in order to get started in the Atlantic is heat. They’re getting that more and more in huge volumes of heated air.
Now, with a similar process happening, plus high pressure remaining in the atmosphere in Texas, and surrounding states of the Midwest, South and Southwest, the high pressure in the atmosphere pushes across into and past the Gulf of Mexico against the hurricane preventing it from moving along the old-time paths that hurricanes took – entering the Gulf of Mexico. The hurricanes seek the path of least resistance (low pressure) which is now up the east coast of the United States.
This is how the destruction of the Rainforest contributes to hurricanes going up the East Coast of the United States. It is a ludicrous idea until we see it happening and eventually understand the physics of how and why.
The drought in Texas and other states has many causes, and there is systematic cutting of trees in Texas, also contributing to this – without replacing the same number that are cut down. We have much development all through Texas, requiring large swaths to be cut down, widening of roads and highways, plus the massive cutting of cedar trees in central Texas and other areas. Over the decades of development and the cutting of trees, what one might usually consider only a drop in the bucket, now becomes millions of drops in many, many buckets.
There are many causes to the drought in Texas, and fewer and fewer trees is helping all the other causes, also.
At the same time, a very useful helpful measure would be to plant trees en masse. Looking at it again psychically, I see that were the people of Texas and California to plant millions of acres of trees – this would change the weather patterns considerably over the states and combat much of the other causes, plus contribute to more rain for the states.
Drought is many years in the making and built via the years and patterns previous. We can help reverse the human contribution to droughts. Please, don’t use the lame excuse that we can’t plant trees during a drought. Mother Nature plants trees under all conditions regularly.

I know there is a lot of talk about drought but in the Dallas area we are in the 3rd worst drought since 1899. The lake I drive over, one side is dry the other is drying up. It’s the worst I’ve seen. This is May, the hot summer months are ahead. Will we have a record breaking 100 degree summer again? When will this end! When it does rains for a minute I remember what rain really is. I watch the TV and see all the storms in the east causing lots of damage and all we got was a sprinkle or two. It’s kind of scary. (Vicki, May 3, 2014)
It can, indeed, be kind of scary. Yet, life is such that we don’t live going backwards, no matter how much we may want to try to hold onto the past. And as scary as it sounds, our living forward is a good thing.
We will not see weather patterns of the past – weather that we consider normal weather – in the future. We no longer live in that climate or world situation. We have a different world existing now based on over 7 billion people living on the planet, and this different world is where we now live ever moving onward to 8 billion people. We will have greater pendulum swings, and in between these swings will be what appears to be normal as compared to the past. But, we will find ways to help to live our lives, as every generation before us has.
There are many factors in our world that have brought about “the end of the world as we know it” and so we’ve experienced this “end of the world as we know it” over and over again. Take a look at Sept 11, 2001 as an easy example to see this. But, it is true in other ways, also. Neal Armstrong walking on the moon was another example, as was the end of the Soviet Union. Others are yet to happen. One of these examples is climate change. We don’t live in that past world – we no longer live in a world of only 5 billion or 6 billion people. We are here, now, and this world has challenges to face and work on. We will work for solutions and we will pray for guidance. We will continue to live our lives, as every generation before us has.
While it could be easy to say the past was better for us, remember, for some, the past was way worse, also. How many people in Europe would like to return to the 1940’s to live? How many people in Viet Nam would like to return to the 1960’s to live?
But, the question and issue isn’t “what is the world like, today.” The question and issue is “who are we, today.” This is a question that every generation before us has had to answer, and now, it’s up to us. Who are we?
