Twister Epidemic: Monster Oklahoma Tornado Kills 51

Take a look at this news articles on the current twister epidemic in the Midwest: http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/05/20/tornadoes-severe-weather-plains-midwest/2325875/. The headline reads “Monster Oklahoma tornado kills 51.”
Could my novel, TWIST, be prophetic? From the blurb on the back cover: “Wichita, Kansas, in the year 2075. Global warming has triggered a world-wide depression. The ozone layer is depleted, the land parched and ravaged by tornadoes.” And from the pages of the novel itself, in the words of the protagonist, Adam Twist: “Yes, the weather was getting more vicious, hostile, and unpredictable all the time. We had been warned about ozone depletion, pollution, deforestation, and all that. But talking about it was one thing—trying to live with it was something else… We had screwed up the weather in almost every imaginable way, but the tornadoes were the worst. I hated the tornadoes.” Be afraid — be very afraid!

  1. Hi Myron. I was wondering…in your novel TWIST you describe huge black tornadoes that are so frequent cities wall themselves up to protect against the tornadoes. The tornado in Oklahoma was even larger than the one you described, and the season seems to have more tornadoes every year. What do you think? Are we actually going to see this type of weather continue, and do you think that it
    is possible to wall up a city to protect against nature? Obviously tornadoes can jump over walls!
