Arctic sea ice area is in steep descent, as illustrated by the image below. Sea ice area was only smaller at this time of the year in 2007, for all years for which satellite data are available.
Five years ago, the last report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change painted a gloomy picture of our planet’s future. As climate scientists gather evidence for the next report, due in 2014, Michael Le Page gives seven reasons why things are looking even grimmer
Antarctic glaciers melting 77% faster than 40 years ago: Sea levels will rise by FOUR FOOT if they collapse completely
- Study looked at six of the fastest flowing glaciers in Antarctica
- They are collectively shedding ice 77% faster than they were in 1973
- Now shed the same amount of ice as the entire Greenland ice sheet
- Ice from these glaciers accounts for 10% of the annual sea-level rise
There have been five mass extinctions recorded in Earth’s geological record thus far. Some scientists posit that due to human activity and changes to climate and carbon dioxide levels, the Earth and its current inhabitants are in the midst of or at least poised on the brink of a sixth. Because of this possibility, researchers often look to the past to see what caused previous mass extinctions in order to understand what could be in store for life on Earth at this time. The most recent information gleaned from geology tells scientists that microbes, one of the tiniest and earliest life forms on the planet, have a few things to teach humanity about carbon, the environment and mass extinctions.

An Arctic largely devoid of ice, giant methane outbursts causing tsunamis in the North Atlantic, and global sea levels rising by several meters by mid-century sound like the stuff of science fiction.

Study Shows Radiofrequency Radiation Impact on Aspen Seedlings, International Journal of Forestry Research
Aspens have been rapidly dying throughout Colorado since 2004. The attached article, “Adverse Influence of Radio Frequency Background on Trembling Aspen Seedlings: Preliminary Observations”, published in the International Journal of Forestry Research (Volume 2010 (2010), Article ID 836278), indicates that man-made “radio frequency radiation may be adversely affecting leaf and shoot growth and inhibiting fall production of anthocyanins associated with leaf senescence in trembling aspen seedlings”.
This is more a climate report than a weather report; yet, the extreme weather that did hit the U.K. recently and that is forecast to hit large parts of North America next week may make more people realize that action is needed now. So, please share!

Greenland — a vast store of ice three kilometers tall at its center and the final remnant of the Northern Hemisphere’s great glaciers of the last ice age has now begun what is likely an unstoppable rush to the sea. For according to a new report in Nature Climate Change, the last stable region of glacial ice along the Greenland coastline is now accelerating through one of the ice sheet’s largest and deepest outlets — the Zachariae Ice Stream.

Main Stream Media And Their Paid Liar “Scientists” Are Desperately Trying To Hide The Truth About Climate Engineering
Unimaginable global climate experiments have been going on in many forms for more years than most would believe. One can not even begin to touch the full depth of the rabbit hole without writing a series of books on the activities of the “collective insanity” that runs the world. How can small numbers of clinically insane psychopaths gain such control over the world’s populations? Because until now most could stay in denial, repeat the “official narrative” dictated to them by those in power, and stay in their comfort zone bubbles. The days of “head in the sand” denial are rapidly coming to an end as there is no longer any hiding from what is unfolding around us all. What we collectively do with the time we have will determine whether or not there is anything to salvage for life on planet earth.
Finally the public at large is beginning to realize there is something very wrong with the snow. Chemically nucleated artificial snow storms have been the norm for a very long time.
Most of the “the golden state” is now parched, baked and dried far beyond any historical precedent. Reservoirs are nearly empty, streams are drying up, and forests are dying by the day. Catastrophic fires will also continue to decimate California due to the engineered drought.
Vast Swaths Of America Now See Little Or No Sunlight;
Massive Areas Under Continuous Chemical Assault
“we are reposting “The snowmen, turning warmth to winter” because it is imperative that people understand the completely engineered nature of the weather events occurring now across the country and around the globe. There is NO NATURAL WEATHER at this point , virtually none.”
by William Thomas The anticipated Big Blow came unexpectedly in late October 2012, when a late-season tropical storm picked up enough energy from an unusually warm Atlantic Ocean to maintain hurricane intensity as it tracked north. Blocked from recurving eastwards by the Greenland High, Sandy “did something never observed before in records going back to 1851 – it took a sharp turn to the west and headed toward the most populated area along the eastern seaboard,” scientists said. Invigorated by cold air deflected south from the Arctic, Sandy morphed into “a monster hybrid storm” with “the lowest atmospheric pressures ever recorded” for any storm making landfall north of Cape Hatteras. Instead of snow, Sandy unleashed rain of monsoon intensity.

By William Thomas Screenheads clicking into Hollywood’s upcoming distractions can anticipate some improbable sci-fi antics this summer. But make believe can’t come close to what’s happening right over their bowed heads. It’s called “Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering” and it means exactly what you’d rather not ask.

How To Murder A State
A state being murdered? How can that be? It is indeed very hard for most normal people to grasp the evil intent of those at the top levels of the power structure in America, and now in most countries of the world. For those that have overcome the psychological reluctance to look at such a reality, I will explain to you how this particular crime against humanity is being carried out.
Between the years of 2000 and 2003 I was employed by a private government contractor called Brookhaven National Laboratories in Upton, New York. While there I learned of a Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider or RHIC buried in the Earth, forming a one-mile-in-diameter circular ring containing collision detection points. At these collision detection points sampling of positively and negatively charged ions is performed every quarter of a mile. During the time I worked at BNL as a Unix systems administrator my job was to work on one of the collision detection points referred to as “Aerosol.”
Killing off large segments of populations is normal government business, and with so many historical examples it is not difficult to understand how poisoning and starvation have accomplished genocides and democide throughout history. On small scales, people are starved and dehydrated in jails and dungeons, poisoned by snakes, diseases, and fancy, deadly concoctions, and water wells have been poisoned throughout human history; all of which effective murder and often performed without culpability. In fact, hundreds of millions of people have been murdered by starvation, dehydration and poisoning. It’s a government thing.
Do you know why we have had such severe weather throughout the U.S. in the past few years? Consider this: Since World War II the U.S. government has been using the entire population of this country as guinea pigs.

“It,” has affected the “all.”
How can something be ubiquitous – everywhere – all around us and within us – and simultaneously, nowhere, nonexistent, and invisible?
