Not even North Korea’s Kim Jong Un can control the weather


Two tremors were detected in North Korea Saturday and were likely aftershocks of the country’s Nuclear test in early September. For more on the story here is Zachary Devita.

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un is not personally able to control the weather, according to zero independent experts and climatologists contacted by E News All.

Not even a well-dressed dictator determined to master nuclear weapons can do that.

However, after releasing images of a smiling Kim on top of Mount Paektu, an active volcano on the China and North Korea border, the nation’s state media appeared to imply that the “peerlessly illustrious commander” can in fact control “the nature.”

The evidence for this weather modification?

When Kim “ascended” to the top of the 9,000-foot mountain this weekend through thick snow wearing his signature double-breasted winter coat and black leather shoes, a blizzard gave way to “fine weather unprecedented” in December for the climb.

“Mount Paektu presented charming scenery showing magic peaks and dazzling sunshine on its clear and blue waves,” the account of Kim’s journey up the mountain published in North Korea’s official state newspaper said.

The “fine weather unprecedented” also puts Kim in a nuclear frame of mind.

“Imposingly standing on Janggun Peak, the respected Supreme Leader gave a familiar look for a while at the dizzy cliffs and the sea of trees, recalling the emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment and with the indomitable faith and will of Paektu.”

Still, unusual things do apparently happen at Mount Paektu. Kim’s father, Kim Jong II, claimed that he was born on a secret military camp on the mountain and that his birth there coincided with the appearance of a double rainbow in the sky.
