Hurricane Season 2017 and ‘Climate Change’ Abatement

Go Lean Commentary

Its June 1st, the start of the Hurricane season. According to Weather Authorities, it is going to be a tumultuous season, maybe even more destructive than last year; see Appendix A below.

Thanks Climate Change.

What hope is there to abate the threats from Climate Change?

Thanks to the Paris Accord, there is now hope; (we remember the effectiveness of the accord to abate “Acid Rain”).

But wait! The American President – Donald Trump – announces that he is withdrawing the United States from the Paris Accord. (See the news article/link in Appendix B below).

This is a matter of security; perhaps we should not look to the US to take the lead for our own fate. This is so familiar … and a Hot Topic today as European member-states are contemplating how much they can look to the US for leadership for their security needs; (see the VIDEO in the Appendix C below).

This is the assertion of the book Go Lean…Caribbean; available to download for free. It serves as a roadmap for the introduction and implementation of the technocratic Caribbean Union Trade Federation (CU), for the elevation of Caribbean society – for all member-states. The quest is that we take our own lead – collectively – for our own fate. This CU/Go Lean roadmap has these 3 prime directives:

The book stresses that reforming and transforming the Caribbean societal engines must be a regional pursuit; the issues at hand are too big for anyone member-state alone. This was an early motivation for the roadmap, as pronounced in the opening Declaration of Interdependence (Pages 12 – 13):

i. Whereas the earth’s climate has undeniably changed resulting in more severe tropical weather storms, it is necessary to prepare to insure the safety and security of life, property and systems of commerce in our geographical region. As nature recognizes no borders in the target of its destruction, we also must set aside border considerations in the preparation and response to these weather challenges.

xi. Whereas all men are entitled to the benefits of good governance in a free society, “new guards” must be enacted to dissuade the emergence of incompetence, corruption, nepotism and cronyism at the peril of the people’s best interest. The Federation must guarantee the executions of a social contract between government and the governed.

xvi. Whereas security of our homeland is inextricably linked to prosperity of the homeland, the economic and security interest of the region needs to be aligned under the same governance. Since economic crimes … can imperil the functioning of the wheels of commerce for all the citizenry, the accedence of this Federation must equip the security apparatus with the tools and techniques for predictive and proactive interdictions.

xxiv. Whereas a free market economy can be induced and spurred for continuous progress, the Federation must install the controls to better manage aspects of the economy: jobs, inflation, savings rate, investments and other economic principles. Thereby attracting direct foreign investment because of the stability and vibrancy of our economy.

The Go Lean book provides 370-pages of turn-by-turn instructions on “how” to adopt new community ethos, plus the strategies, tactics, implementations and advocacies to execute so as to reboot, reform and transform the societal engines of Caribbean society.

The issue of Hurricane Season 2017 is bigger than initial appearances – there are BIG  issues afoot. Many are issues that were addressed in previous Go Lean blog-commentaries; see a sample here: Welcome to Kiribati – Hello and Goodbye Caribbean Roots: Al Roker – ‘Climate Change’ Defender Fix ‘Climate Change’ – Yes, We Can Hurricane Categories – The Science Due to Climate Change, ‘Crap Happens’ – So What Now? COP21 – ‘Climate Change’ Acknowledged A Meteorologist’s View On Climate Change ‘Hotter than July’ – Reality in the Caribbean Climate Change‘ Merchants of Doubt … to Preserve Profits!! Book: ‘This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate’ Climate Change May Affect Food Supply Within a Decade Cooling Effect – Oceans and the Climate Climate Change May Bring More Kidney Stones Caribbean grapples with intense cycles of flooding & drought Conservative heavyweights have solar industry in their sights Go ‘Green’ … Caribbean

We endured a bitter Hurricane Season last year; Hurricane Matthew was devastating for a number of Caribbean islands in September/October; i.e. Haiti and the Bahamas. (In fact, the Bahamian city of Freeport was so severely impacted that one of its biggest Hotel-Casino resorts closed … permanently).

The Caribbean status quo is unsustainable under the real threats of Climate Change. The region must reboot, reform and transform. We must do the heavy-lifting ourselves; we cannot expect relief and refuge from others, like the American Super-Power. We must find and “sail” under our own power.

Hope and Change! Yes, we can …

… we can make our Caribbean homeland a better place to live, work and play. 🙂

Appendix A – Forecasters predict active 2017 hurricane season

With the start of the Atlantic hurricane season less than one week away, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says it could be a busy one with five to nine hurricanes expected to form.

Overall, NOAA forecasts 11 to 17 named tropical storms will develop in the region, which includes the Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, the agency announced Thursday.

The season officially begins June 1 and runs through Nov. 30.

Of the hurricanes, two to four could be major, with wind speeds of 111 mph or higher and rated as Category 3, 4 or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale of Hurricane Intensity.

An average season typically produces 12 named tropical storms and six hurricanes and peaks in August and September.

A tropical storm contains wind speeds of 39 mph or higher and becomes a hurricane when winds reach 74 mph.

Factors contributing to the prediction include: A weak or non-existent El Nino, near- or above-average sea-surface temperatures, and average or weaker-than-average vertical wind shear, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center.

Meteorologists at Colorado State University last month estimated 11 tropical storms will form, with four becoming hurricanes.

The late Colorado State University meteorologist William Gray was the first scientist to make seasonal hurricane forecasts back in the 1980s.

The Weather Channel predicts an average season, with 12 named storms, of which six will become hurricanes. AccuWeather forecasts 10 named storms, five of which are projected to become hurricanes.

Appendix B – Trump expected to withdraw from Paris Accord

Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump is expected to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, two senior US officials familiar with his plans told CNN Wednesday, a major break from international partners that would isolate the United States in global efforts to curb global warming.

The decision would put the US at odds with nearly every other nation on earth. It would reflect a major reversal of the Obama administration’s efforts on climate change. And it could trigger further efforts to erode the landmark climate accord.

In actuality, President Trump officially announces  the exit and former President Obama barks. See story and VIDEO here:
