(due to Geoengineering of our skies for decades with heavy metal toxins and Man’s anthropogenic polluting ways, we have blown a hole in the ozone that is emitting hugely elevated (over 1000% above EPA figures) of deadly UVB rays. This, is the primary causal factor for the tree die off around the world. We are destroying the only living being that gives life to all. sound the alarm, wake the sheeple, stop the madness.)
California drought killing trees by the millions, NASA scientist says – Tree mortality in the Sierra Nevada range ‘is far greater than previously observed’
The devastation the California drought has caused to conifer trees in the Sierra Nevadas over the last couple of years “is far greater than previously observed,” NASA scientists said in announcement of the publication of new map of the region.
David Schimel, a senior research scientist who worked on the study, told ABC News that the map represented NASA’s “first close look” at the extent of the damage caused by drought on Sierra trees.
Schimel referred to the findings as “millions of trees dying at once.”
The map was created with measurements from NASA’s Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer instrument, which was developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The image was created by scientists at the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Region Remote Sensing Lab, in McClellan, California, by performing a time series analysis of AVIRIS images taken from NASA’s ER-2 aircraft.
NASA said that the map will be used to help the USFS assess and respond to the impacts of increased tree mortality caused by the drought.

Impacts like loss of sea ice’s cooling albedo effect (reflectivity), loss of land albedo due to greening and loss of snow cover, and unlocking of local carbon stores due to rising heat, expanding fires, and changes in weather all contribute to this more rapid rate of Northern Hemisphere Polar warming. In addition, warming oceans, northward moving climate zones, and warm wind influx events generated by weaknesses in the Polar Jet Stream preferentially transport heat toward the Arctic (especially during Winter). These various forcings generate an overall greater degree of warming for the Arctic Ocean region during Winter all while Summer sees extraordinary heat racing to the Continental edges North of the Arctic Circle.
