Praying for climate peace in the midst of chaos is not helping Thailand, which is currently drowning in unseasonably backlogged rains. Due to chaotic climate change -- exacerbated by the US and China, solar irregularities, and the general warming of the solar system (according to some) -- there is too much rain in some places and too little in others.

Climatological changes spur social changes since the "Arab Spring," "American Fall," and growing occupation movements around the world have food insecurity as their primary cause. That insecurity is not due to low yields yet. That will come. Now it is all about rampant speculation, commodities trading, driving up prices to cash out. The bankers and war profiteers actually affect the planet down to the soil. Rain, human tragedy, drought followed by flooding, it is almost as if a butterfly at Monsanto, Inc. test farm caused a monsoon/cyclone over Bangkok. We really are more connected than we (as non-mystics) ever realize.
