Going to have to do a re run of "Godzilla Vs. The Smog monster". The 1st one was hilariously funny.

This dust storm was the result of the change from climate mode#2 (the Jason model) to climate mode#3 (the latest interglacial mode, classical in Dino time when much hotter running, which is much more efficient @ cooling the planet); which switched ON in April 2012.

Result is that the Siberian cold pool is being blown East into the Sea Of Japan via Korean peninsula which gives a cold winter and LOTS of sea effect snowfall in Japan. Dust is classical Gobi derert Loess lofted in cold dry air being blown East.

Dont you just LOVE climate change... This winter in NE.Asia is a classical example,(it has been increasingly snowy in Japan during winter over the last decade but this one doubled the average increase expectation in NE.Honshu).

Have a nice day: Ag
