“Bolts Out Of The ‘Black'”: Lightning Megaflashes

The United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization [WMO], reported a 700+ kilometers [435+ statute miles] long, lightning megaflash. This behemoth of energy flow occurred in Brazil on 31 October, 2018. Elsewhere, there have been other impressive bolts.

Previously, ground mapping stations were utilized to review lightning strikes. However, spatial considerations, among other factors, provided the impetus for building ‘special-task’ satellite-imaging craft; these for lightning flow assessments. Now, both distances traveled, as well as energies-released measurements, can occur over wider expanses. By utilizing both ground and space systems conjointly, precision is attained.

The ‘macro-geometric’ measuring capability should allow meteorologists, far and wide, the ability to evaluate lightning in a manner not possible just a few years ago. Satellite technology provides three-dimensional measuring capability, on a multi-nation scale, in many areas of the world.

A sailor, ‘Top Side’ on a merchant ship, [be it a ‘Bulker’, ‘Container’, L.N.G., or, Oil Tanker] may be standing at a height of 10 meters above the water line. His ‘visible horizon distance” is 11.3 kilometers [7.0 statute miles] in good weather. Ergo, he would never see that which could strike him, from far beyond the horizon, until it was far too late. Now, a ship ‘radarman’ must be aware of the aforementioned, great striking distance of lightning; and thereby alert any crewmen ‘on deck’. This new information from the WMO, may be life-savers.

One might consider what long-term economic impact this technology will have for the Insurance industry, for one. To know: the probability of such electrical events occurring; when, during the year; of what intensities and durations; over which geographic areas, will be invaluable to Insurers and Re-Insurers. With such knowledge: Actuaries can establish insurance rates; customers may find it economically advantageous to minimize property losses. They might by installing preemptively, electrical storm mitigating technologies [as have been long-required on ships]; this would certainly benefit the Insurance Industry. [There may be many smiling faces in Bermuda.] Those who wisely invest in Insurance Companies’ stocks may also be elated by increases in profits.

Reality: Understanding Mother Nature, is for wise men, a roadway to comprehending, and obtaining cost-mitigating efficiencies; this, for business and personal profits.

The ‘Globalists’ “Terrible Times Triumvirate” Agents, Against ‘Internationalists’: N. Tropy and his Steadfast Stalwarts being ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’

Our having roles in International Business for many decades, has allowed us to qualify as ‘Having been around the block many times’. As such, we have witnessed the same scenarios played out often around the world: ‘Globalists’ who seek conjunctions of many countries into a few ‘blocs’ [for ease of their global control strategies]. ‘Internationalists’ on the other hand, WANT the 200+ Nations on Earth to be independent of each other. A multiplicity of powers: thereby being relatively equal, to each Nation’s unique assets [human and natural], and locations geographically.

As an iceberg displays a mere 10% of itself above the water [90% being submerged, so is ‘murkier’ from above]; such are Globalists’ cabals. They will employ various social tactics, to cause political upheavals, for their own economic gains.

More ‘recent’ examples, of which we have previously written: Joseph Patrick Kennedy Sr.’s attempts to take over Vietnam initially, later, Cuba, then back to Vietnam [after his son was elected U.S. President]. You may want to review our past articles about these subjects. The point being: In EACH case, to achieve economic goals, social entropy was created, which was designed for political changes; so he and his associates could realize vast economic gains. The citizens of those countries ‘be damned’ was their credo.

Presently, throughout the world, there are social movements utilized to hide Globalists true intentions. The plotters want to put political pressure on Nations leaders so they can achieve their own economic goals quicker. There are only a few Strong World Leaders; other Leaders are mere ‘leaders’. This is a reality of life. The plotters think they will win.

When one hears about ‘Global Warming'[now, more ‘fashionably’ “Climate Change”], ‘Clean Energy’ (Geo-Thermal, Solar, and Wind) ask: “Who is funding the protestors?” Moreover, “Who really gains with the changes?”

Another ‘in vogue’ protest now is: “De-funding or Eliminating Police Departments”. “Who gains economically?” We submit: ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’ would prosper. And both, as one can see on television, can provide protestors’ emotional ‘sizzle’. “Law and Order” be damned. In fact, ‘Masked Robbers” are no longer ‘in play’, today it is ‘Mask-less’ arsonists, looters, robbers, and murderers; because they have ‘legitimate complaints’, some say.

We can continue on but the basic idea is “As with an iceberg with 90% of its mass largely out of easy view, ‘Globalists’ need obscurity. They need Strong Leaders to be removed from office so mere ‘Puppets’ can replace them. If done, ‘Globalists’ can have ‘free rein’ to rule as they choose.

We prefer Nations to freely and openly engage in commerce, while protecting their individual sovereignties. Their commercial regulations apply to themselves, not to other Nations. They cooperate with other countries but do what is best for their own citizenry. Such leaders DO NOT push off their people to other Nations because they are too lazy to solve their own economic difficulties. Interestingly, there will be a small group of ‘wealthy’ in each country of which we are speaking. They just help themselves.

It is our opinion that International Trade should be encouraged anyway possible: Dredging harbors,; building wharfs; facilitating ship licensing; training pilots; expanding airport runways, paving highways, et al.

By NOT having a few “Globalists’ control the world, with citizens being their serfs, people far and wide prosper.

With plentiful commerce, people gain financially. De-regulation, of business activities is the fuel for economic growth. In growth are the roots of survival of Nations.

Reality: The diversity of Nations is copacetic with the proviso: “Nature abhors singularities”. The ‘More, The Better’.

Mother Nature’s “Lightning”: A Clear And Present Danger

A Texas rancher, unfortunately, found some of his livestock, which has been standing near a fence, dead from a lightning strike. Each year, world-wide it is estimated that domestic, as well as feral animals, are killed in the hundreds of thousands by lightning strikes. The cost to the owners of the herds is prodigious. The reality of the matter is not much has been done to protect livestock in such weather. If one ‘thinks outside the box’ there is no reason insulated transportable small ‘barns’ could not be designed and inexpensively manufactured for herd shelters.

In the areas, such as Arkhangai Province near Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, herders lose thousands of their animals yearly due to horrendous lightning storms, snow and wind. In -30C [-22F] temperatures; this loss can be reduced significantly with the aforementioned portable insulated ‘small barns’. Losses from electrical storms, in particular, could be prevented. As for humans, we are better off.

The capacity to kill, from lightning’s electrical energy, is well-known by all. In fact, it kills on average, approximately 6 people per million, per year, world wide. If one presumes there exists approximately 7.8 billion people on Earth, one sees that 46,850+/- people perish yearly from strikes. In agricultural areas around the world, for humans, the death toll is higher, due to lack of effective shelters, than of residents in cities. In urban areas one is safer due to effective housing. Since lightning injuries exceed deaths, by ten times, human suffering is quite vast. Numerically, lightning strikes to humans,and animals, as well damage such as forest fire started from the strikes, are as destructive as many ‘Influenza Pandemics’. As to ‘Flora’ damage, there is no contest.

Having engaged in hard rock mining, many of us are quite familiar with lightning storms causing ignition of blasting caps for dynamite charges. [We are also aware of firearms shots detonating sticks of dynamite; This we have witnessed]. For miners, several thousand feet underground, lightning can kill; as historical evidence in Africa has shown. It behooves executives of mining companies to secure the best of insulation for their miners in remote locales, world-wide.

It is imperative for effectively-insulated building designs to be employed, as the, in-fashion phrase, ‘Climate Change’ [no longer, “Global Warming”] evidences climatic deviance in weather patterns. This evolution in climate may produce more electrical storms in greater varied locations, and of stronger electrical intensities. At present, it appears that Japan is the leader in building fabrications with the fewest lightning strike victims in the world; a fact of which the country’s leaders should be proud.

Reality: For all living creatures and humanity, respect for ‘Mother Nature’ with her powers is essential. Those unaware, or in denial, can pay the price for this lack of acknowledgement.

When Cold Is Really Cold An Insulation’s Performance Must Be Bold

News Analysis: Cold weather closings of  Oil Refineries, Passengers in both Airplanes and in stranded Railway Cars seeking blankets, Buses with chilled riders, and New Large Buildings, using record amounts of Energy to keep warm; these all demonstrate ‘Cosmetic Insulations'(using Entrapped Air as the Insulator) DO NOT PERFORM IN FRIGID WEATHER!

An Insulation’s Performance Must Be Bold and NOT BE a Fuel Source for Fires. Petrochemicals and entrapped air in Foam Insulations only require Heat for the creation of fire. If a fire does occur, as in an Aircraft or Building, occupants cannot have Glass Particulates be released into the air for their inhalation into their lungs, as can Fiberglass. 

“Mega-Temp™ Insulation” Performs in Frigid Weather and was designed for extreme Cold Weather use such as in Aircraft, or in Arctic Conditions. It is the “Active Molecular Insulation™” which has been performing boldly for MANY YEARS in Siberia, Russia. It does Not Freeze in Liquid Nitrogen at -195.8C (-320.5F).

The Cost for the disruption of  Commercial Commerce throughout the Northern Hemisphere is estimated as Several Trillion Dollars! This can easily be reduced by using Spray-On “Mega-Temp™ Insulation” in Oil Refineries, Aircraft Fuselage Interiors, Passenger Trains, Freight Boxcars, Buses, Buildings (and anywhere else Severe Cold Weather will Impact).

Climate Change is evidencing this year’s Northern Hemisphere Freeze; Weather Experts think this pattern will continue into future Winter Seasons. Being Pro-active, People can stay Safe and Comfortable,  Refineries remain open, and, Energy Bills may plummet by using “Mega-Temp™ Insulation” as needed. It performs Boldly in the Cold.

The Insulations of the Past, which are Widely Advertised, are OBVIOUSLY FAILING EVERYONE TODAY.

A Word To The Wise Is Sufficient.

Reality.

Climate Change Causes Pakistani Farmers Crop Anomalies

News Analysis: Climate Change Causes Pakistani Farmers Crop Anomalies in Sowing as well as in Harvesting. More moisture, along with higher temperatures in certain portions of Pakistan, have reduced crop yields. Pakistan can use knowledge from Agronomists as to how best deal with the weather change, Crop-Wise, and convey those ideas to the Farmers.

Other countries are being Pro-Active when it comes to Adaptation to Climate Change. Wise Pakistanis may find it proper to do like-wise.

Brazil Deforestation Increases Naturalists’ Concerns

News Analysis:  Brazil Deforestation increases Naturalists’ concerns about Climate Change. The illegal logging activities of a few people, as well as projected Real Estate Developments in the Amazon Basin, are largely responsible.

The Brazilian Government has been successful over the past several years in stopping illegal logging. Legitimate Real Estate Development is following Population Growth Patterns in the country so some ‘Shrinkage of Forest’ is a reality. The Brazilian Government is responsibly seeking an Equilibrium in this matter.

Bermuda’s Reinsurance Companies Want to Take Over Governments’ Insurance Coverages

News Analysis: Bermuda’s Reinsurance Companies want to take over Governments’ Insurance Coverages for the Profit Potential therein. To their credit, these Companies are being Pro-Active in seeking Certain “Insurable” areas of coverage currently offered by Nations.

Since the Bermuda Reinsurance Industry is trying to find growth, it is engaging in Due Diligence to find Profitable Opportunities with Acceptable Levels of Risk.

Natural Catastrophe Risk versus Economic Catastrophe Risk are both covered by this Vital Industry. Through increased Technology, additional data is available for the proper assessment of Catastrophes [Natural or Economic]. The recent Typhoon  in the Philippines, as an example,  suggests that such a Large Event might be covered if there were Insurance [Reinsurance] Policies.  Insurance Coverage  could aid a stricken area substantially. Economic Catastrophes are becoming more known through Internet Cyber-Attacks, for example, against huge Data Bases, for one. The loss of Pertinent Information could destroy its owner’s Economic Viability. Reinsurance would help against Catastrophic Loss.

When Evaluating the need for Insurance and Reinsurance, Governments, Corporations, and Individuals should remember: “Stormy Days Will Occur”. Reality.

World Wineries Want Wonderful Weather

News Analysis:  World Wineries want Weather Improvement for better quality Grape Harvests.  Due to Climate Change, more rain and hail have damaged many Vineyards in assorted countries.

Investors, employing Due Diligence,  may want to consider discussing with Enologists and Viticulturists about other more suitable geographic areas for Vineyards.

Since, High Quality Wine Production, is  complicated but achievable through years of work, experienced employees are one of the  keys to profitability. Marketing Expertise is absolutely necessary if selling of a Variety of wine[s] is to be at a market  high ‘Price Point’.
