Our great monopolies have the power to squelch anything they don't like.
I would call this era 'Peak Monopoly'. These always collapse in 100 years. The above shows the pure windstream.
And this has the windstream with satellite. These 'cold based' storms will have clear air convection to the stratosphere. It cannot be measured by nooa or noosa, or it would blow the groupthink they use to get money.
I'm giving up on California. They can just stare out at the ocean like a deer in the headlights. Even my kids in California are 100% groupthink, and spend all their time on phone games. :)
