Back to the Future: Return of the Dust Bowl?

Massive dust storm descends on Phoenix area

PHOENIX (AP) — A massive dust storm descended on the Phoenix area, drastically reducing visibility and delaying flights as strong winds downed trees and left thousands of residents without power.
The dust cloud that moved across the Phoenix valley Tuesday night had formed in an afternoon storm in the Tucson area, and then rolled north across the desert before sweeping over the city like an enormous wave, said National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Iniguez.
Radar data showed the storm's towering dust wall had reached as high as 8,000 to 10,000 feet, or nearly 2 miles, he said.
"This was pretty significant," Iniguez told The Associated Press. "We heard from a lot of people who lived here for a number of storms and this was the worst they'd seen." See Amazing Video below

 There are amazing parallels between the present day and the time of the Roaring 1920’s before the Great Depression, and the time of the Great Depression during the 1930’s, which was followed by WWII.
  • 1920’s – A time of great prosperity and wealth
  • 1930’s – The Great Depression and The Dust Bowl
  • 1940’s – War
The Stock Market boom, the Housing boom etc. led to the great wealth effect of the mid 1990’s into 2007.
Since 2007 the world has been in Economic Depression (although misidentified as a Recession by the media.)
  • Will the Dust Bowl and War return soon to take us Back to the Future?

History does have a nasty tendency of repeating itself, after all there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:9
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
