    Time for skerrit to go

    Yes, that is because the weather makers/geo engineers have been heating up earth and blaming it on global warming. The american military said that they want to own the weather by 2025. They are very close. Mean while the m. continue to sleep and call you a conspiracy theoriest when you try to wake them up. All so called naturally disasters are man made 100 percent. Earth is flat.

      It  would be interesting to know who taught you!
      The shape of Earth is approximately oblate spheroidal. Due to rotation, the Earth is flattened at the poles and bulging around the equator. The diameter of the Earth at the equator is 43 kilometres larger than the pole-to-pole diameter. Thus the point on the surface farthest from Earth’s center of mass is the summit of the equatorial Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador.The average diameter of the reference spheroid is 12,742 kilometres (7,918 mi). Local topography deviates from this idealized spheroid, although on a global scale these deviations are small compared to Earth’s radius: The maximum deviation of only 0.17% is at the Mariana Trench (10,911 metres (35,797 ft) below local sea level), whereas Mount Everest (8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above local sea level) represents a deviation of 0.14%.

      In geodesy, the exact shape that Earth’s oceans would adopt in the absence of land and perturbations such as tides and winds is called the…

        This is all factual and correct, and the earth is not flat FLAT EARTH, unfortunately, man has been interfering in weather patterns. The draining of clouds for example to facilitate an international sporting event.
        So too the increase in temperature over the years is being manipulated. If you are a christian examine Job 1 and 2.
        The hurricanes we are having all begin naturally but their intensity can be influenced by other means. Maria was not all natural.
        One day we will understand the plans of the enemy to self destruct this planet.
        It will happen with fire! We are just warming up!
        Not that i am looking forward to it because it is really ugly here on this planet but God’s word said that it will and i stand on His word.
        Whoever thinks that He is not coming and there is no end must really pray about it.
        But the point is, there is evidence both spiritual and natural that the weather/climate is tampered with whether instantly or gradually.

        !00 percent trashhhh. The so called ball earth is going around the sun or spinning at 66,600 miles per hour and a 1000 miles at the so called equator according to science yet at all that speed we dont feel it. If I throw a pebble in the sea, lake, river, dam, pool or pond I will see a ripple. But at such great speed no water is fyling off these bodies of water. We don’t feel it, we don’t sense it because it doesn’t happen. It does not take place. Airplanes and ships travel in a straight line and then dock or land when they arrive at their destination no matter the distance. They don’t travel downwards, upwards, sideways or upside down on the spinning ball earth. The globe is just animation, cgi imagery and composites from evil nasa .We all have been brain washed, programmed and conditioned to believe this lie from birth. That’s how the satanic elite that own and control this earth has been controlling humanity.

        Earth is flat.

      “This is all factual and correct, and the earth is not flat FLAT EARTH, unfortunately, man has been interfering in weather patterns. The draining of clouds for example to facilitate an international sporting event. ”

      Let me agree with you that the earth is not completely flat, only an idiot would believe that in the  the twenty-first century; as usual Dominicans seem to have more scientific knowledge than any other people on earth, nevertheless; we are still the poorest and most backward people on earth! 

      By the same token I would like you  to explain to me what scientific method you know humans are using to drain the clouds of water to facilitate international sporting events?

      Are you mad?

      Such sentiments are even much more ridiculous, and stupid than one believing the earth is flat! Have you ever been into clouds? Well I have, flying at more than 40,000 feet in a passenger jet aircraft through clouds, and never saw water saturating the plane!

      From where you got that…

        Well, simply saying “Francisco the earth is flat” is not enough to convince me; in order for you to convince me you would have to be in a position to refute my first submission to your comments; which  I know without a doubt yo cannot refute it no matter how you try.

        What I  stated is a scientific geographical fact, and not simply a theory! If you have a new theory you can use to quash what I said; and destroy what science has proved over, and over, I wish you would present it!

        Until then you do not have a case; Read me over, and as we say in Dominica come again!

        I will add come back again nuh!

        But seriously; give me a reference of some study where you got your information from, I mean you could be correct and I am wrong, but you need to prove me wrong, that’s what educational communication should be all about!

      Flat earth, there are no amount of anything you can say that will legitimized the nonsense you are spewing; you read something however; you did not fully comprehend what you read!

      You are making an idiot out of yourself: I advise before you make yourself more stupid, you need to educate yourself in the discipline of Physical Geography Today:

      You will only get that from a four year college, or university; take it to the level of advance physical geography and enlighten your mind, hence you may stop indulging in nonsense!

    So was the airport closed while the fire truck trying to put out the fire? Assuming it was closed, what if a plane had to make an emergency landing at Melvillehall? Are you all understanding the magnitude of our problem in Dominica?

      Why are you asking such an intelligent and pragmatic question? That’s not how things are done in Dominica.

    A lot of fires occurring, just like on the US west coast, Greece and around the world.

      Yeah, but how are the fires handled in Dominica? with garden hoses, and lack of water, with no water in hydrants? What is the purpose of a dry hydrant?

      Our weather is totally geo engineered. We no longer have natural weather and haven’t for a very long time now. Daily weather events is our new reality. the are dead asleep.

      Earth is flat.
