I think a difference between the world wind map and a source like wunderground is the level of detail. Wunderground is using info put out by the FED's Hurricane Center in Miami on what looks like an hourly basis. The FEDs are getting wind data from planes in the hurricane. I also fairly sure there are standardized methods and equipment used to get these measurements.
The world wind map is interesting and I've saved it for future use but I'm not sure I would rely on it if I was in the potential path of a hurricane. I'd base my plan to evacuate based on real time info from hurricane chasers who are risking their butts to get on location info.
Do you know how the world wind map data is generated? Again, if decisions are being made about the risks associated with a specific hurricane, precision and detail are rather important.
I believe you saw what you saw, but I'm suggesting that the level of detail is what's at issue here.
The global map was but one resource I used, perhaps all of the maps are using the same un detailed information. Here is another you can blow up to get very intimate detail that I was using (trust but verify) as well. This particular map reads at ten meters above the surface. The hurricane aircraft are not flying at the surface (or ten meters)so that is a non starter in our debate. The weather underground display and history was wonderfully organized and presented in a solid manner for those who believe in the establishment and trust their submissions. However I don't so I verified and compared every time the news spoke about the unusual 'massive' record late season season storm. When it sent suddenly from an unorganized depression to an unorganized 'tropical storm' with no real circulation and only driving winds on it's north side I became suspicious and began my watch as the MSM began sensationalizing Florence. It even made hurricane status with driving winds only on it's north side and very little or no true circulation.
Hurricanes generally require over 80* waters to grow in strength and most of the trajectory of Florence was over waters that were not warm enough to justify the sudden increases in intensity until it was closing in on the north side of the islands at which point the waters were warmer and would indicate an increase in wind speed and intensity.
Now of course these maps just monitor the wind speeds in the case I was using them in. Saying that the national weather service, NOAA, NASA (never a straight answer), the USGS, MSM and whoever else are completely honest about their reporting is like letting the fox guard the hen house. It is the equivalent of trusting the banks not to manipulate the prices silver and gold. Just who do you believe. The scientists, national weather service, academia et al all have a vested interest in their paychecks which just happen to be through government funding, government grants and those running the show. If you are one of those researchers who desperately needs that cushy job to support your trophy wives and kids and 4000 sq ft home what is your reporting going to reflect?
Let me try another direction.
Are you going to trust the studies on a new medicine that were funded by the Pharmaceutical companies, and then you look at the side effects and it says "If you stop breathing consult your physician"? This just falls back to my sincere belief that the government, the corporate world, our 'elected' politicians and those behind the curtains are not looking out for our best interests. So in relation to those beliefs again I fall back to they must have lots of named tropical storms whether they meet the criteria or not, and then magnify these into massive cat 4 hurricanes and blow them all out of proportion to justify the calls for carbon taxes due to man made climate change.
Hence my contention is that those running the show used falsified data hoping that the regular folks didn't check and verify the true stats or thought they may have misread them and fed us information falsified just enough to attain a larger number of tropical storms, higher category hurricanes and other falsified weather details to further their agenda. Now I may be completely loony and I'm sure there are those here who may or would like to believe that.
There is a poster (maybe a couple) here that could likely offer very good and detailed reasoning as to how all of that could work through persuasion and perhaps if asked by someone other than myself might be interest in expounding upon this concept. In my book this all goes to the facts that those running the world only give us the news and information relative to their agenda because if we knew what was really going on they would all be hanging from trees on short ropes, or one of my favorites, in the middle of shark infested waters with a life boat (slow death) a life jacket (medium speed death) and concrete tennis shoes (jump out and have a fast death).
Now you must remember that HAARP and Chem trails of which DARPA and the military hold tens if not a hundred or more patients on are things I believe are likely weather control technologies. They were seeding clouds back in the 40s if not the late 30s, and I remember as a youth in the 50s they were seeding clouds in attempts to increase precipitation in California. taxpayers.Just imagine how far those technologies have developed in 70-80 years, especially with the huge black budget dollars they have stolen from the taxpayers.
You may completely disagree with my analysis and belief, but you gave me a forum to respond to your contentions so I 'let it go'. If we were anywhere but DOTS I probably wouldn't have gotten this involved. Thanks Waxy
