Move Over ‘Global Warming’, Here Comes ‘Lunar Wobbling’

Those living in coastal regions could be affected in the coming decades.

As the human race moves forward in their journey of existence, there are diverging schools of thought emerging in regard to the way in which we treat our environment, and what, if anything, can be done to protect nature itself.

For some, the only answer to preventing some sort of climate catastrophe is more government regulation, on things like fossil fuel emissions and energy usage.

On the other side of the argument are folks who understand the dangers of overregulation, and who understand that the awful power of Mother Nature herself cannot, and should not, be altered.

Now, in addition to having to worry about the rising seas on account of “climate change”, science is now telling us that a “lunar wobble” could add to the trouble.

People living in coastal areas may see record flooding caused by the moon in the next decade or so.

Astronomical cycles, coupled with rising sea levels from climate change, may cause a surge in coastal flooding beginning in the mid-2030s, according to a study from NASA released on July 7.

“Why will cities on such widely separated coastlines begin to experience these higher rates of flooding at almost the same time? The main reason is a regular wobble in the Moon’s orbit that takes 18.6 years to complete,” the agency said.

So, what exactly is going on?

First recorded in 1728, the wobble has an impact on the severity of the ocean’s tides caused by the moon’s gravitational pull. The first portion of the cycle reverses the effects of tides, making high tides lower and low tides higher. The second portion amplifies the tidal effects, making high tides higher and low tides lower.

Interestingly, Alaskans may not face such a problem, as the coast line of America’s last frontier continues to rise, offsetting any trouble that this moody moon might bring.

An announcer for an Iowa racetrack thrilled the home crowd with a rant against national anthem protesters, but his bosses were less accepting. Video of announcer Lon Oelke’s rant was broadcast live on FloRacing, but once it was posted to social media it went viral. Some were upset over the announcer’s reference to “darker toned skin people.” After complaints filed in, the The Kossuth County Speedway in Algona, Iowa, announced that it had fired the announcer who was a fill-in announcer and not full-time. “It was not OK, and it will not be happening again,” the company said in a statement. “Kossuth County Speedway looks forward to proving to our fans, drivers and crews that we can and will do better.” During his announcement, Oelke told fans that he had a public service announcement. “I’ve got four words for you: Find a different country if you won’t do it,” he said. “Get the hell out of dodge!” He went on to slam the NFL. “Now they’re gonna have another national anthem, for those folks, I guess the darker toned skin color, I’ll just say, Blacks,” Oelke added. “They want a different national anthem and the NFL is thinking about doing it,” he said. “So, I just say shut the TVs off and let them play in front of nobody.” https://youtu.be/5GeJkeXW6pI Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

A new conservative children’s book is looking to keep the woke out of story time with a new anti-transgender theme. Brae Books has published its new book for the kiddos entitled, Elephants are Not Birds, that tells kids that you are what you are biologically. According to the website, Brave Books offers parents “a conservative alternative to the current cultural activism that our children are being taught in schools, in the entertainment they watch and the books they read.” Company CEO Trent Talbot said he was driven to create the new book line when he noticed that “that there is a real war going on for the hearts and minds of our kids. And everywhere I looked was propaganda,” the New York Post reported. Per the paper: An ophthalmologist by trade, Talbot pointed to Ibram X. Kendi’s picture book, “Antiracist Baby,” which urges parents and kids to “make equity a reality,” as content that needs a counterpoint. “Once my eyes were open I was seeing it everywhere and I couldn’t unsee it,” Talbot said. “I thought there was a need for books that could help parents teach the values they hold dear.” Brave Books’ first offering is called “Elephants are Not Birds,” the story of an elephant named Kevin who likes to sing, and then is convinced by a vulture — named Culture — that he warbles so well, he must actually be a bird. Brave Books also made the decision to to refuse to do business with Amazon.com and will sell their wares only on their website. The Post added: Other planned books include, “The Island of Free Ice Cream” by former OAN anchor Jack Posobiec, which will tackle Communism. The company is also courting Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), to write “Fame, Blame, and the Raft of Shame” about…
