Love Canal became the subject of national and international attention after it was revealed in the press that the site had formerly been used to bury 22,000 tons of toxic waste by Hooker Chemical Company (now Occidental Petroleum Corporation).

The city of Niagara Falls began using the land as a landfill for chemical waste disposal and later the U.S. Army began burying waste from chemical warfare experiments. The Hooker Chemical and Plastics Corporation acquired the use of the site for private use in 1947 and buried 21,000 tons of toxic waste there over the next five years. After the site was filled, Hooker sold the Love Canal for one dollar to the Niagara Falls School Board in 1953, and the land was approved for residential use.

“Thirty-five years after Love Canal became a symbol of the dangers of toxic waste in residential neighborhoods, the legal and medical issues there are still playing out.”

Did the EPA learn NOTHING from The Love Canal tragedy? Did they “forget”? Or, are they just sellouts of humanity that don’t care as long as it doesn’t affect their families, while being paid off to turn a blind eye? These are questions that should be PUBLICLY ASKED of the EPA regarding their complicity in allowing land developers, (consisting of attorneys who know how to skirt the law), to build a residential community on a similar toxic waste site in Riverview, Florida.

Please help show support for the brave Gina LaBruno, and all of the residents suffering ill effects from the toxic water in Riverview, by liking her facebook page, sharing information, and speaking out. The EPA and other public officials must be held accountable for turning a blind eye to this atrocity. https://www.facebook.com/wateratVOB

What might it take for city officials to acknowledge this serious problem? How about a nice big drink of water from the faucet of one of the homes in Riverview?…

How does one cut through the fog of endless disinformation in regard to the true state of the climate? Are the planet's glaciers melting? Or are they growing? Would you believe the truth if you could see it with your own eyes? The multiple award winning documentary film "Chasing Ice" has just been publicly posted, now all can see for themselves what is happening at an extremely alarming rate all over our planet. We are all in uncharted waters, the gravity of our collective reality is much more dire than almost any yet comprehend. If the planet is to have any chance of continuing to maintain life, the industrialized destruction of the biosphere must stop, starting with the immediate halting of climate engineering. All those that are truly committed to the fight against climate engineering need to take the time to educate themselves on reality. In the case of the planet's glaciers, this documentary reveals visually verifiable and indisputable facts. We must learn to recognize spun propaganda put out by the most powerful people and special interest groups in the world whose goal it is to hide reality from the public for as long as possible. How can we recognize false propaganda? By knowing what the truth really is. Though much of the statistical information in the film is very dire, the up to the minute statistics are already much worse. I hope all will take the time to view this extraordinary documentary. If we are to have the credibility necessary to gain ground in the fight against climate engineering, our conclusions must stand on solid ground.

Alarming increase in serious illnesses in the US, along with a marked decrease in life expectancy, trend starting 16+ years ago

By Hans J. Kugler, PhD, contributing writer for geoengineeringwatch.org

We, IAAM (International Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine), contacted a number of longevity experts to pinpoint the causes. Look at the graph in Bezruchka’s paper: The US is dead-last!

chart

Besides the established connection to the use of GMOs, there is also a definite increase in overall inflammation, clearly connected to Chemtrail/climate engineering spraying. For the latest like recent article in The Washington Post and GMO Industry Harassment against Researchers Exposed.

We are also exploring the connection between Chemtrail/climate engineering spraying and the – strangely – appearing and disappearing flu symptoms; we will cover this in the future.

Within the last 20 years there has been an alarming increase in serious illnesses in the US, along with a marked decrease in life expectancy (Bezruchka, 2012). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the cost of diabetes and diabetes-related treatment was
approximately $116 billion dollars in 2007. Estimated costs related to obesity were $147 billion in 2008 and cardiovascular diseases and stroke were $475.3 billion in 2009. Health care expenditures in the US totaled 2.2 trillion dollars in 2007 (CDC, 2013a). The onset of serious illness is appearing in increasingly younger cohorts. The US leads the world in the increase in deaths due to neurological diseases between 1979-81 and 2004-06 for the 55-65 age group (Pritchard et al., 2013). These mental disorder deaths are more typical of the over 65 age group. There have been similar findings for obesity, asthma, behavior and learning problems, and chronic disease in children and young adults (Van Cleave et al., 2010). Type II diabetes in youth is being called an epidemic (Rosenbloom et al., 1999). The rate of chronic disease in the entire US population has been dramatically increasing with an estimated 25% of the US population suffering from multiple chronic diseases (Autoimmunity Research Foundation, 2012). These findings suggest environmental triggers rather than genetic or age-related causes.
During this same time period, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of glyphosate applied to food crops and in the percentage of GE food crops planted (Benbrook, 2012). We undertook a study to see if correlations existed between the rise of GE crops, the associated glyphosate use and the rise in chronic disease in the US.

An Arctic Ice Cap’s Shockingly Rapid Slide Into The Sea

Share

Source: MSN

For years, scientists have documented the rapid retreat of Arctic ice, from melting glaciers in Greenland to shrinking snow cover in far northern Eurasia. Now researchers have discovered one Arctic ice cap that appears to be literally sliding into the sea.

Ice is disappearing at a truly astonishing rate in Austfonna, an expanse of frozen rock far north of the Arctic Circle in Norway’s Svalbard island chain. Just since 2012, the ice cap covering the island has thinned by a whopping 160 feet, according to an analysis of satellite measurements by a team led by researchers at Britain’s University of Leeds.

Put another way, the ice cap’s vertical expanse dropped in two years by a distance equivalent to the height of a 16-story building. As another comparison, consider that scientists were recently alarmed to discover that one of Western Antarctica’s ice sheets was losing vertical height at a rate of 30 feet a year.

“It is a very large signal,” said Mal McMillan, a geophysicist and one of two researchers at Leeds’  Center for Polar Observation and Modelling who worked on the study. “The ice cap has slumped out into the ocean with a substantial loss of ice.”

McMillan and colleague Andrew Shepherd analyzed changes in Austfonna’s ice using data from satellites that measure, among other things, changes in elevation. They found that the gradual melting of the island’s 1,550-cubic-mile ice cap recently shifted into overdrive, for reasons that aren’t fully understood.  Small ice caps like the one over Austfonna are believed to be more vulnerable to climate change-related thawing because relatively more surface area is exposed to the air and sea.

In this case, the ice cap lost one-sixth of its original thickness in two years, and the flow of ice from the summit to the sea accelerated by 25 fold, to a rate of several kilometers a year, a fast clip by glacier standards, the study found.

“What we see here is unusual because it …  appears to have started when ice began to thin and accelerate at the coast,” Shepherd said.

The research, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, illustrates how quickly ice caps can evolve, highlighting the challenges associated with predicting future impact of climate change, the scientists said. Arctic experts are closely watching changes in polar ice because of the potentially profound implications for sea-level rise. About a third of the increase in sea level in recent decades is attributed to melting glaciers and ice sheets, and researchers worry that more rapid melting could eventually swamp coastal cities around the world.

Still, researchers say, it’s too early to say definitively if the shrinking of the Austfonna ice cap is due to global warming. Ice caps can shift suddenly for reasons that have nothing to do with climate, McMillan said. But in this case the list of possible culprits would certainly include warmer ocean water and air temperatures, both of which have risen more rapidly in the Arctic compared to the rest of the planet, he said.

“We’ve only seen this for a couple of years,” he said he said of the Austfonna meltdown, “so we really need to monitor it further.”

Engineered Winter Storm Assault, The Weather Makers Are Desperate For Headlines

Winter Storm
Share

Dane Wigington
geoengineeringwatch.org

Winter storm “Juno” is here, and it is engineered from top to bottom. The weather event that is unfolding on the East Coast of the US is a completely manipulated monstrosity. The total desperation of the power structure and the climate engineers is so very evident as they throw everything they have at the creation of a “winter storm” which is meteorologically as unnatural as it could possibly be. Snow now generally has nothing to do with elevation, rather, the “heavy wet snow” is focused where most of the moisture is. Massive amounts of moisture are necessary for the chemical ice nucleation process which transforms what should have been rain into snow due to the endothermic reaction it induces. This also lowers the temperatures on the ground as the more dense chemically cooled air (created from the nucleation process) sinks to ground level. The layer of cold air is very shallow, but it does lower the temperatures enough to produce the desired headlines.

Winter Storm Juno is a product of intense climate engineering efforts. What is the goal? To create headlines, confusion, and distraction from what is rapidly unfolding on the bigger picture.

Winter Storm

What are the climate engineers trying to hide? How about the record warm temperatures happening at the very same time as “winter storm Juno”.

HAM map

The map above shows the “departure from normal high temperatures” for the US. This map is for Tuesday, January 27, 2015, which is exactly the same time as the hight of engineered winter storm “Juno”. Note that there will be RECORD SHATTERING HIGH TEMPERATURES in huge section of the US. Some regions will be over 30 degrees ABOVE NORMAL. You won’t hear “The Weather Channel” saying much about this, in fact, they will likely not mention it at all. For those that are not yet aware, 2014 was the warmest year every recorded on our planet.

What was the most anomalously cold place in the whole world for the entire 2014 year? The eastern half of the North American continent as the map below clearly shows. The “GISS” map also shows “departure from normal high temperatures”, but for the entire 2014 year. The constant engineered cool-downs of the Eastern US is a psychological operation in every sense of the term.

2014 map

Why are the climate engineers and their mainstream media servants so focused on the Eastern US? Because this is the most densely populated region of the US. This is the region where the geoengineers can cause the greatest amount of impact to the largest number of US citizens that are in the zone of greatest population density. Doesn’t the power structure care about the decimation they are causing with the highly destructive engineered winter storms? Absolutely not, global populations are now being constantly subjected to what can only be classified as weather warfare. What are they spraying to create the engineered weather? Highly toxic elements are raining down on us all in quantities that cannot truly be fully comprehended. The stated goal of internationally recognized geoengineers is 20,000,000 tons of aluminum nano particles annually, and that is only one component of the ongoing atmospheric spraying.

The low pressure system that is part of “winter storm Juno” is sweeping moisture up off the record warm Atlantic ocean, how can this record warm moisture just “change over” to snow? In fact, global ocean temperatures are rising so quickly the records are constantly being broken.

ocean temp map

Again, why are the climate engineers doing this? To create maximum confusion and division in regard to the true state of the climate and to distract from a long list of other unfolding global catastrophe’s which those in power do not want the US population to become aware of. In addition to Fukushima radiation, collapsing eco systems, economic collapse, and the push for WWIII being waged by those in power, engineered snow storms are wreaking havoc around the globe.

Climate Engineering And The Manipulated Perception Of The US Population

Dane Wigington

If you live in the eastern half of the North American continent you may be convinced that the planet is actually cooling instead of warming even though 2014 is officially the warmest year ever recorded on Earth. Those that have come to such a conclusion the whole planet is cooling should carefully examine the map image below. This is a GISS “departure from normal temperature” map for the entire 2014 year. What does this map reveal? The darker the colors, the further above normal the average temperatures were for the 2014 year. The light colors reflect departures from average to the below normal side. Where was the most consistent anomalous cold region on the entire planet for the 2014 year? The eastern half of the North American continent. How can this be when most of the world is far above normal temperatures? Climate engineering, is how. The engineered cooling of the Eastern US is very much a psychological operation. Most people cannot accept the possibility of a warm world if it is cold where they live. How short many people’s memories are considering 2012 was the warmest year ever recorded in the continental US by far. In fact there were 362 all time record high temperatures set in the US during 2012, there were ZERO all time record lows. Why is it so important to know the facts in regard to the true state of the climate? Because spreading the “global cooling” propaganda is exactly what the power structure and the geoengineers want us to do. To push the “global cooling” myth is in effect helping the geoengineers sell climate engineering as an effective method of climate mitigation when in reality the exact opposite is true. Climate engineering is making the climate scenario far worse overall, not better. Worse still, the ongoing climate engineering fallout is contaminating the entire planet with toxic metal and chemical particulates.

2014GISS

For any that are wondering how 2015 is shaping up for the Eastern US, the same scenario we saw in 2014 is being engineered all over again. The West fries with temperatures 20 degrees or more above normal with almost no rain as the Eastern US gets the toxic engineered cool-downs.

US map

Were the record overall global temperatures in 2014 the biggest climate story? No, Earth’s ocean temperatures are going off the charts, this should be of grave concern to us all. Though there are countless sources of negative impacts to the climate system of our planet, global climate engineering is likely the greatest single source of damage and disruption. Those that cannot bring themselves to believe any of this data (because Al Gore is just too easy to hate), should consider what is happening around the globe. Formerly frozen methane deposits are thawing and releasing around the globe. Forest fires are burning at rates many times higher than the historical norms. Tuna are being caught off the coast of Alaska, sea turtles off the coast of Oregon (again, due to extremely warm ocean temperatures), this cannot happen on a cooling planet. Global ocean warming is off the charts. If we are to have credibility in the fight to expose and halt climate engineering we must stand on facts, not ideology. The planet is in meltdown, geoengineering is making it far worse overall, not better.

Well Known Scientist Sounds The Alarm On Geoengineering

JMHERNDON
Share
Marvin Herndon, Ph.D. , is a scientist of considerable notoriety. Marvin contacted me recently to express his growing concerns about the constant toxic aerosol spraying of our planet and the obvious human health and environmental ramifications we all face from this contamination. Dr. Herndon has shown a level of courage that is so very rare in the circles of the science community, he is taking a stand on the aerosol spraying issue and making his voice heard. There are so many in academia who have sheepishly hidden themselves in the shadows while they perform whatever task is asked of them in exchange for a paycheck and a pension. Marvin is the antithesis of this. He has sacrificed much in his life and career in order to stand on his convictions. I solute Dr. Herndon’s determination and courage, his recent letter to authorities in his region is below. May his outspokenness be an example to others in the science community.
January 16, 2015
To: Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer, and San Diego City Council Members
From: J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D.
Subject: Pervasive Toxic Aerosol Spraying of San Diego Residents
I am a scientist (PhD in nuclear chemistry, Post-Doctoral in Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry) and businessman, and have lived in Scripps Ranch for thirty seven years.
Over the past year the skies above San Diego have changed drastically in plain sight. We’ve been robbed of the beautiful blue skies we associate with our city. Almost every day jet airliners are spraying innumerable so-called “chemtrails” and they persist after release behind the jets to gradually form clouds. Chemical clouds. Toxic clouds. They eventually diffuse and form a white haze in the sky. Sometimes, the artificial clouds are laid so thickly as to make the otherwise blue San Diego sky fully overcast with toxic chemical aerosols. Sometimes, depending on chemical mix, the transition from spray to white haze is rapid. Please see a few examples, attached, that I photographed from my front yard.
Chemicals sprayed into the atmosphere do not remain suspended; they fall to contaminate the air we breathe, our rainwater, and our agricultural soil. This ongoing massive spraying taking place over San Diego represents a grave threat to me and my family, my neighbors, and all my fellow San Diegans.
Rainwater collected after intensive aerosol spraying now reportedly contains elevated levels of aluminum, barium, and strontium and likely other toxins. Aluminum is implicated in diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and autism, whose rising incidence is causing alarm to many Americans. How many additional children will be doomed to suffer a lifetime of autism? How many additional San Diegans will suffer premature brain degeneration or cancer? What horrors lie in store for our children and grandchildren who unknowingly play outdoors, or the pregnant women with their unborn offspring, or the runners and other outdoor recreationists? What about those of us who suffer asthma or who have compromised immune systems? What about the elderly?
What about your own family? Are we San Diegans no longer free to breathe uncontaminated air?
Why are San Diego’s Mayor and members of San Diego City Council silent about this imminent public health threat? Were you duped into believing that toxic chemical clouds will keep Earth from warming? Clouds might reflect sunlight back into space but those same artificial clouds also keep Earth from cooling by not letting Earth’s heat escape during the night. Clouds, artificial or natural, trap heat!
Why the silence? Are you afraid there will be demonstrations or riots in the streets if the truth were told about the ongoing activity that poisons the air San Diegans are now breathing? Deception by acquiescence and silence is fundamentally wrong, unless you are a willing participant in activities that will likely come to be characterized as crimes against humanity.
As elected officials you have the responsibility to advise and protect all San Diegans. Please speak the truth and stop this spraying over our homes.
The following links provide information you may find of benefit.

Interview with a neurosurgeon:
Please advise me of your intensions to make public disclosure of the chemical spraying over San Diego. Kindly respond before the close of business on January 23, 2015, or I will assume you have no intention of responding.
Sincerely,

Is Antarctica losing or gaining ice?

nature10968-f3.2

Source: Skeptical Science

Climate myth: Antarctica is gaining ice
“[Ice] is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.” (Greg Roberts, The Australian)

Antarctica is a continent with 98% of the land covered by ice, and is surrounded by ocean that has much of its surface covered by seasonal sea ice. Reporting on Antarctic ice often fails to recognise the fundamental difference between sea ice and land ice. Antarctic land ice is the ice which has accumulated over thousands of years on the Antarctica landmass through snowfall. This land ice therefore is actually stored ocean water that once evaporated and then fell as precipitation on the land. Antarctic sea ice is entirely different as it is ice which forms in salt water during the winter and almost entirely melts again in the summer.

Importantly, when land ice melts and flows into the oceans global sea levels rise on average; when sea ice melts sea levels do not change measurably but other parts of the climate system are affected, like increased absorbtion of solar energy by the darker oceans.

To summarize the situation with Antarctic ice trends:

  • Antarctic land ice is decreasing at an accelerating rate
  • Antarctic sea ice is increasing despite the warming Southern Ocean

Antarctic Land Ice is decreasing

Measuring changes in Antarctic land ice mass has been a difficult process due to the ice sheet’s massive size and complexity. However, since the 1990s satellites have been launched that allow us to measure those changes. There are three entirely different approaches, and they all agree within their measurement uncertainties. The most recent estimate of land ice change that combines estimates from these three approaches reported (Shepherd and others, 2012) that between 1992 and 2011, the Antarctic Ice Sheets overall lost 1350 giga-tonnes (Gt) or 1,350,000,000,000 tonnes into the oceans, at an average rate of 70 Gt per year (Gt/yr). Because a reduction in mass of 360 Gt/year represents an annual global-average sea level rise of 1 mm, these estimates equate to an increase in global-average sea levels by 0.19 mm/yr, or 1.9 mm per decade. Together with the land ice loss from Greenland, this represents about 30% of the observed global-average sea level rise over this period.

Examining how this change is spread over time (Figure 1) reveals that the ice sheet as a whole was not losing or gaining ice in the early 1990s. Since then ice loss has begun, and is clearly seen to have accelerated during that time:

Shepherd et al. 2012

Figure 1: Estimates of total Antarctic land ice changes (bottom) and regions within it (top) and approximate sea level contributions using a combination of several different measurement techniques (Shepherd and others, 2012). Shaded areas represent the estimate uncertainty (1-sigma).

The satellite mission that is best suited to measuring land ice mass change is the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE). The GRACE satellites measure changes in Earth’s gravity and these can be directly related to surface mass variations such as the Antarctic ice sheet. Recent GRACE estimates of mass change show the dramatic mass loss in West Antarctica and mass gain in East Antarctica (King and others, 2012):

King and others, 2012

Figure 2: a, GRACE estimate of ice-mass change (2002-2012), with ice drainage basins numbered (boldface italics where trends are statistically different to zero with 95% confidence). b, c, Basin-specific lower and upper bounds on ice-mass change, respectively, reflecting the potential systematic error in the basin estimates (King and others, 2012).

The East Antarctic Ice Sheet is growing slightly over satellite period (Figures 1&2) but not enough to offset the other losses. It is not yet clear if the increase in mass in Antarctica is a short-term phenomena due to a particularly snowy period (Boening and others, 2012) or if it is a long-term trend. Increased snowfall in East Antarctica has long been predicted in a warming climate, so this is an important region to continue monitoring.

The land ice loss from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is not due to surface melting, as the summer temperatures in Antarctica are generally always below freezing, and measured changes in precipitation cannot explain it either. Instead, the melting is occuring due to warm ocean water melting the land ice around its edges, resulting in a spreading of this ice loss inland:

Pritchard and others, 2012

Figure 3: Rates of lowering of land ice and its floating extensions in West Antarctica, 2003–2008 (Pritchard and others, 2012). Floating extensions of the land ice (ice shelves) that are labelled are Venable (V), Abbott (A), Cosgrove (C), Pine Island (PI), Thwaites (TH), Crosson (CR), Dotson (D), Getz (G), De Vicq (DV), Land (L), Nickerson (N) and Sulzberger (SZ). Arrows highlight areas of slow-flowing, grounded ice. Bathymetry landward of the continental-shelf break is in greyscale. The divide between floating and grounded ice is shown in white. The inset shows the location of the figure (green box) overlaid on the outline of Antarctica.

The influx in warm water onto the continental shelf in this region is not entirely understood but is probably at least partly linked to increased westerly winds that have occured as a result of reduced stratospheric ozone levels since the mid-20th Century (Gillet 2003, Thompson 2002, Turner 2009).

The Antarctic ice sheet plays an important role in the total contribution to sea level. That contribution is continuously and rapidly growing.

Antarctic Sea Ice is increasing

Antarctic sea ice has shown long term growth since satellites began measurements in 1979. This is an observation that has been often cited as proof against global warming. However, rarely is the question raised: why is Antarctic sea ice increasing? The implicit assumption is it must be cooling around Antarctica. This is decidedly not the case. In fact, the Southern Ocean has been warming faster than the rest of the world’s oceans. Globally from 1955 to 1995, oceans have been warming at 0.1°C per decade. In contrast, the Southern Ocean has been warming at 0.17°C per decade. Not only is the Southern Ocean warming, it is warming faster than the global trend.

Figure 3: Surface air temperature over the ice-covered areas of the Southern Ocean (top). Sea ice extent, observed by satellite (bottom). (Zhang 2007)

If the Southern Ocean is warming, why is Antarctic sea ice increasing? There are several contributing factors. One is the drop in ozone levels over Antarctica. The hole in the ozone layer above the South Pole has caused cooling in the stratosphere (Gillet 2003). This strengthens the cyclonic winds that circle the Antarctic continent (Thompson 2002). The wind pushes sea ice around, creating areas of open water known as polynyas. More polynyas lead to increased sea ice production (Turner 2009).

Another contributor is changes in ocean circulation. The Southern Ocean consists of a layer of cold water near the surface and a layer of warmer water below. Water from the warmer layer rises up to the surface, melting sea ice. However, as air temperatures warm, the amount of rain and snowfall also increases. This freshens the surface waters, leading to a surface layer less dense than the saltier, warmer water below. The layers become more stratified and mix less. Less heat is transported upwards from the deeper, warmer layer. Hence less sea ice is melted (Zhang 2007). An increase in melting of Antarctic land ice will also contribute to the increased sea ice production (Bintanga et al. 2013).

In summary, Antarctic sea ice is a complex and unique phenomenon. The simplistic interpretation that it must be cooling around Antarctica is decidedly not the case. Warming is happening – how it affects specific regions is complicated.

Radio Frequency Transmissions Are Killing Trees And Everything Else

There are so many sources of radio frequency transmissions bombarding us from so many directions that they could never be fully identified or quantified. Life is electrical by nature, aren’t all these signals affecting the web of life? The answer is unarguably yes. If radio frequency transmissions can sicken and kill trees, what is it doing to us? The atmosphere is now much more conductive thanks to the constant spraying of metal nano particulates by jet aircraft. The ongoing climate engineering insanity is not only contaminating the entire planet, the exposure to this metallic fallout is making our own bodies more electrically conductive. This in turn makes us all more susceptible to damage from constant radio frequency exposure. As is the case with the trees that are dying all over the planet, our own health is also waning. Whether people admit it or not, whether they actually feel any affect or not, non of us are exempt from the slow and insidious damage that is occurring in our own bodies and throughout the web of life. The fate of the trees will soon enough be our own fate if the lethal technologies of the modern military/industrial era are not fully exposed for what they are, and then halted. There is no other choice, there is no other way forward. If the current paradigm is allowed to continue for much longer, there will be nothing left to salvage of life on Earth. The “Popular Science” article below documents only one small aspect of the ongoing assault against life on Earth, and as expected from a mainstream publication, they then make light of it. All will soon come to realize that what is unfolding around us all is absolutely not a joke.

WI-FI RADIATION IS KILLING TREES, NEW STUDY FINDS

Source: Popular Science, article by Dan Nosowitz

Studies on the impact of wireless radiation on humans are endlessly inconclusive, but a recent study on the effects of Wi-Fi radiation on trees–yes, trees–indicates that our woody friends may be much more vulnerable than we are. And trees can’t even enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi. It’s all very unjust.

The study, conducted by Wageningen University, investigated findings that trees in areas with high Wi-Fi activity (urban areas, especially) were suffering from symptoms that couldn’t be tied to typical bacterial or viral causes. The symptoms included bleeding (!), fissures in the bark, the death of parts of leaves, and abnormal growth.

dying forests

To test the hypothesis that the mystery illness was caused by radiation poisoning, the researchers took 20 ash trees and exposed them to various kinds of radiation for three months. Sure enough, the ash trees exposed to Wi-Fi signals showed telltale signs of radiation sickness, including a “lead-like shine” on their leaves, indicating the oncoming death of those leaves. In the Netherlands, a whopping 70% of urban trees are suffering from radiation poisoning, up from only 10% five years ago–understandable, considering the explosion in Wi-Fi use in the past five years.

Of course, trees in rural or even simply non-urban environments are pretty much unaffected, but theoretically, all deciduous trees in the Western world could be affected.

The researchers are planning several more studies to figure out the precise effects of radiation on plant life. In the meantime, they don’t really offer any preliminary solutions, but I’m sure they’d approve of wrapping every urban tree you see in tin foil, root to leaf. (Note: Wrapping public trees in tin foil may be illegal in your city, state, arrondissement, or prefecture. PopSci cannot be held responsible if you are arrested for such activities.)

Though there has always been fluctuations and natural cycles in Earth’s climate, what is now occurring is anything but natural. People die, this is a part of the cycle of life, but if you shoot someone in the back of the head, they will then die an untimely death. Such is the case with our planet. In geologic terms, human activity has decimated the planet in the blink of an eye. Though there are countless sources and causes of damage to the biosphere and the climate system, the greatest single assault against the planet of all is global climate engineering. Migrations of those impacted by the disintegrating climate have begun.

Sea Level Rise, Persistent Drought Sets off Mass Migration and Famine in Pakistan

For the cities, towns and villages of Sindh Province along the Indus River in Southeast Pakistan, the seas are rising and the winter rains have failed. It is a place besieged on all sides by climate change. By forces that are killing its children due to malnutrition and turning tens of thousands of its populace into climate change refugees.

Climate Change, Loss of Trees, Loss of Children

A combination of rising temperatures and decimation of local forests due to gum extraction has exacerbated an extraordinary moisture deficit for an already arid region. In early spring of 2014, the impacts to crops resulted in scores of children dying due to malnutrition. By late fall, the famine had returned with increased intensity, resulting in the loss of nearly 300 children in less than three months. A tragic loss that may well have been avoided.

Increased aridity in the region can be blamed on a number of factors — all related to human-caused climate change. Gum extraction from Gugral trees has resulted in losses of up to 70 percent from local stands. The loss of these tens of thousands of trees has, in turn, resulted in less water retention kicking off increased aridity. Meanwhile, larger global climate change is resulting in higher temperatures over the region — increasing evaporation rates and further lowering soil moisture content. Glacier loss in the Himalayas has recently pushed a surge of added water down the Indus — which helped to boost development unsustainably. Now glacial outflows are at risk of dwindling, threatening the long-term future of the Indus itself. Finally, the increasing global heat is kicking off alterations in seasonal rain patterns — making the winter rains less reliable.

Sea Level Rise Ruins Coastal Crops, Sets off Mass Migration

The combined factors would be difficult enough for Sindh and its cities to manage. But a final factor appears to be delivering another disruptive coup de grace. As of mid 2014, environmental reports had indicated a mass migration away from Pakistani coastal regions.

indus-delta

Not a cloud above the once-fertile but now increasingly salt-ridden Indus Delta on 14 January 2014.

Rising seas had resulted in increasing levels of salt water in near-coast aquifers and wetlands. The rising salt levels in soils made irrigation of coastal crops impossible in many regions. Within just a few years, the elevated seas had rendered 1 million hectares of land arid — making it impossible for farmers to grow crops or to raise animals.

According to a June 2014 report by World Bulletin:

Both surface water and ground water have become unusable, with the once fertile Indus river basin turning into a desert, as sea water brings sand inland as far as 50 kilometers.

In addition, saltwater invasions of the Indus river reduced fish stocks. This sudden loss of water useful to agriculture and precipitous fall in fish stocks suddenly put many farmers and fishermen out of work.

By mid 2014, more than 100,000 people had fled the coast. Now, these tens of thousands of jobless farmers and fishermen pack the streets of inland towns — seeking jobs and places to live that simply may not be available.

But what this litany of harsh statistics doesn’t tell is how many of the children lost came from families of those displaced by rising seas.

Sadly, this issue of river deltas losing fertility to the inexorably rising tide is not just a problem for Pakistan. Many of the worlds most productive agricultural zones lie in delta regions. At this point, all are under threat due to speeding sea level rise set off by rising rates of glacial melt. And as we have seen in Brazil, California and Pakistan this year other increasing atmospheric temperatures, climate induced weather pattern changes and deforestation (Brazil, Pakistan) also play a role.

Climate Engineering Is Weather Warfare, What Are The Consequences?

2014 was the warmest year ever recorded, the rapid heating of our world can no longer be hidden. The weather makers can cool massive regions over the short term, the extremely anomalous temperatures in the Eastern US is proof of that. But what is the true cost of such engineered “cool-downs”? The total decimation being caused by covert global climate engineering could never be quantified and is in many ways already completely irreversible. After as much as six decades of climate engineering insanity (and the total global contamination that has come with it), what are the results? The biosphere is in tatters. The entire climate system is unravelling, the frequency of weather related disasters is off the charts, the ozone layer is completely shredded, and every living thing has been poisoned from the constant aerosol spraying of our skies. These are only some of the consequences of the geoengineering insanity. Let’s not forget the role of climate engineering in helping to trigger massive methane release in the Arctic, which by itself may kill the entire planet many times over. How have covert climate engineering programs contributed to the methane warming feedback loop? Climate engineering has radically altered upper level wind currents. This in turn has altered ocean currents. Now we have warm currents pumping into the Arctic which is helping to thaw formerly frozen methane deposits on the seabed. There is enough methane in the Arctic alone to cause a Permian type mass global extinction 100 times over if it releases in entirety. This methane release has already begun.

2014 Was the Warmest Year Ever Recorded on Earth

Runners in Siberia, which experienced record heat in 2014

Last year was the hottest in earth’s recorded history, scientists reported on Friday, underscoring scientific warnings about the risks of runaway emissions and undermining claims by climate-change contrarians that global warming had somehow stopped.

Extreme heat blanketed Alaska and much of the western United States last year. Several European countries set temperature records. And the ocean surface was unusually warm virtually everywhere except around Antarctica, the scientists said, providing the energy that fueled damaging Pacific storms.

In the annals of climatology, 2014 now surpasses 2010 as the warmest year in a global temperature record that stretches back to 1880. The 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1997, a reflection of the relentless planetary warming that scientists say is a consequence of human emissions and poses profound long-term risks to civilization and to the natural world.

Of the large inhabited land areas, only the eastern half of the United States recorded below-average temperatures in 2014, a sort of mirror image of the unusual heat in the West. Some experts think the stuck-in-place weather pattern that produced those extremes in the United States is itself an indirect consequence of the release of greenhouse gases, though that is not proven.

Several scientists said the most remarkable thing about the 2014 record was that it occurred in a year that did not feature El Niño, a large-scale weather pattern in which the ocean dumps an enormous amount of heat into the atmosphere.

Longstanding claims by climate-change skeptics that global warming has stopped, seized on by politicians in Washington to justify inaction on emissions, depend on a particular starting year: 1998, when an unusually powerful El Niño produced the hottest year of the 20th century.

With the continued heating of the atmosphere and the surface of the ocean, 1998 is now being surpassed every four or five years, with 2014 being the first time that has happened in a year featuring no real El Niño pattern. Gavin A. Schmidt, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in Manhattan, said the next time a strong El Niño occurs, it is likely to blow away all temperature records.

The Warmest Year on Record

Parts of the eastern United States were cooler than average last year, but globally 2014 was the warmest year in recorded history.

“Obviously, a single year, even if it is a record, cannot tell us much about climate trends,” said Stefan Rahmstorf, head of earth system analysis at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. “However, the fact that the warmest years on record are 2014, 2010 and 2005 clearly indicates that global warming has not ‘stopped in 1998,’ as some like to falsely claim.”

Rapid Sea Level Rise Can No Longer Be Hidden

The power structure is having ever increasing difficulty hiding the magnitude of catastrophic changes on our planet that are already unfolding at blinding speed. Sea levels are rising at an extremely rapid pace, much faster than previously “thought”. With so many scientists keeping track of sea level rise, how can this be? Why would the “experts” until recently use completely outdated and totally inadequate methods of measuring sea level rise which have caused them to radically underestimate the actual rate of increase? Because that is what they have been paid to do, hide the true gravity of what is descending on us all. The same type of “bought and paid for ” scientists are also helping to hide the very dangerous UV radiation levels, Fukushima radiation contamination, the dangers of fluoride, vaccinations, GMOs, where does it stop? And the most destructive and deadly assault of all on our planet, the biggest elephant in the room, global climate engineering, goes completely unmentioned by the whole of academia. In fact, not just unmentioned, but adamantly denied. Climate engineering is not just completely derailing Earth’s life support systems, the atmospheric spraying programs are contaminating every breath we take. Every scientist, elected official, reporter, etc, that helps to perpetuate the lethal lies of those in power (and thus helps to hide their crimes), should be tried in a court of law for the crimes of ecocide, genocide and omnicide . Why is the global cabal desperately trying to obscure the gravity of biosphere disintegration from the public? To avoid panic as long as possible while they are completing preparations for total societal collapse. All are needed to stand up, get informed, and make our voices heard.

The Rate Of Sea-level Rise Is ‘Far Worse Than Previously Thought’, Study Says

Source: The Washington Post, article by Terrence McCoy

Researchers have come up with a new and improved way of measuring the rise in the sea level, and the news is not good: The seas have risen dramatically faster over the last two decades than anyone had known.

For hundreds of years, the seas were measured by more or less the equivalent of plopping a yard stick into the ocean and seeing if the ocean went up or down. But now, that method looks to be outdated.

According to a new study published on Wednesday in Nature, the new method involves an advanced statistical model that analyzes all of the factors contributing to sea rise. It has yielded what appears to be a much more accurate picture of the oceans and suggests previous studies had severely underestimated the acceleration of recent sea rise.

“What this paper shows is that the sea-level acceleration over the past century has been greater than had been estimated by others,” lead writer Eric Morrow said in a statement. “It’s a larger problem than we initially thought.” Co-author Carling Hay added in an interview with BBC: “The acceleration into the last two decades is far worse than previously thought. This new acceleration is about 25 percent higher than previous estimates.”

Old sea measurements came to their conclusions by dividing the world’s oceans into sub regions. Then they determined the height of those regions with something called tide gauges — “essentially yard sticks used to measure ocean tides,” a release said. Then researchers would take those numbers, create estimates for each region, and average them out to come to a global estimate.

But that system was rife with problems. “These simple averages aren’t representative of a true global mean value,” Hay said in a statement. “Tide gauges are located along coasts, therefore large areas of the ocean aren’t being included in these estimates. And the records that do exist commonly have large gaps.” The tide gauges were unevenly distributed, or just skipped whole sections of the planet. Only the United States and Europe were measuring the oceans for decades. Then there was the issue of tectonic activity, which would suddenly cause a rise or fall in local sea levels, and skewed the numbers.

So the scientists realized they needed a whole new method. Soon, they arrived at what they call a “completely new perspective.”

“We know the sea level is changing for a variety of reasons,” Hay said. “There are ongoing effects due to the last ice age, heating and expansion of the ocean due to global warming, changes in ocean circulation, and present-day melting of land-ice, all of which result in unique patterns of sea-level change. These processes combine to produce the observed global mean sea-level rise.”

So they had all the puzzle pieces. Now they just needed to put them together.

To do so, the researchers looked for what they called “fingerprints” and “underlying patterns,” putting each factor through advanced statistical models to determine a more accurate sum figure. “What we were interested in — and remain interested in — was whether we can detect the sea-level fingerprints we predicted in our computer simulations in sea-level records,” Morrow said. “Using a global set of observations, our goal has been to infer how individual ice sheets are contributing to global sea-level rise.”

So they took the sum of those contributions from the ice sheets, and added in the rate for how much oceans are rising because of thermal expansion due to global warming to determine a “global mean of sea-level change.” And what that mean ultimately showed was that the rate of sea-level rise has increased much more dramatically than earlier estimates. “Unfortunately,” Hay said, it “is really much larger than anyone thought.”

Voices of reality are not appealing to the masses, no one wants to hear unpleasant truths. The majority are not even willing to examine any facts that threaten their perception of reality. Soon, very soon, they will have no choice but to wake up. The planet’s energy balance has been horrifically altered. There is unimaginable inertia behind the wheels that are now turning, life on Earth is truly uncharted territory. Even at this late hour total denial in our society is epidemic, this includes many in the ranks of those who claim to be fighting against the climate engineering. Denial of verifiable facts undermines credibility and is thus detrimental to the fight against climate engineering. False conclusions built on ideology and wishful thinking will not change reality. Industrialized society is collapsing even now, it was always doomed in its current form. Perpetual expansion in a finite space is clearly and obviously impossible, but how many in our society even speak of this? If we are to save any part of our miraculous planet’s life support systems, we must all find the strength to face reality head on. We must all find the strength to stand firmly against the insanity and make our voices heard. The video below is important to review and consider carefully, the gravity of what is unfolding around us all is clearly conveyed in it. Catastrophic methane release is already occurring in the Arctic.  Many in the climate science community are actually advocating for “massive geoengineering” as if it has not been already going on for over 6 decades and doing nothing but harm. It is up to us all to educate ourselves and hold the climate science community to account. Climate engineering is NOT a cure, but rather it is nothing short of an all out assault on all life. Global geoengineering is making an already dire climate situation far worse, not better. Let us all march together in the fight to expose it and stop it.

Industrialized Society’s Race Toward Total Extinction

Humanity is unarguably in free-fall toward total extinction. The collapse of industrialized society in its current form is a mathematical certainty on the current trajectory. Short of a complete change of direction, this will be our horizon. By completely interfering with Earth’s atmosphere and life support processes, man has radically altered our planet’s energy balance. The climate equilibrium that was so essential to our species (and life as a whole) has been lost. Though there are countless sources of anthropogenic decimation to our biosphere, some sources stand out as the absolute epitome of blatent intentional human destruction and insanity. Mathematically speaking, global climate engineering is the greatest single assault of all against life on Earth. Only nuclear cataclysm has the potential to eclipse the threat posed by climate engineering. Fracking is another glaring example of completely insane human activity. If we are to collectively have any chance of survival, a much larger segment of the population must awaken and join the fight for the common good. The walls are closing in very quickly, we must all combine our efforts wake the masses. Every single day counts in this battle. The 4 minute video below is a sobering portrayal of industrialized society’s complete contempt for the environment that sustains us.

Jet Stream Manipulation Is Fueling Weather Extremes

The entire climate science community pretend to be scratching their heads over the ever more erratic jet stream patterns. The “experts” continue to come up with various explanations as to why the jet stream is behaving the way it is, but all of these explanations are willfully blind to the geoengineering elephant in the room. Ionosphere heater installations located around the globe are a major component of the ongoing climate engineering. These extremely powerful and dangerous facilities are being used to manipulate the jet stream. The climate science community as a whole is turning two blind eyes to the ongoing geoengineering insanity while Earth’s climate and life support systems are being systematically torn apart. If the current trajectory of planetary destruction continues for much longer, we will have nothing left to salvage of our planet. We must ALL hold the “experts” to account. Email them, their associates, local media, groups, agencies, etc, and share these email contacts with others so that they can do the same. It’s up to all of us to take every step possible in the critical effort to raise awareness with the still uninformed public and to give notice to those that are lying for the establishment that we know they are lying. The article below sheds more light on the increasingly destructive weather on our planet, even though the researcher/author of this piece will not mention the climate engineering issue. I have passed substantial amounts of geoengineering data on to the author (Robert Scribbler) and had nothing but silence as a response. Scribbler, just like the climate science community, knows that mentioning anything about the geoengineering issue is a very bad career decision, or worse. This being said, the article does accurately outline the rapidly increasing destruction from ever worsening weather. The entire climate system is unravelling, climate engineering is a major factor in this equation.

 

Jet Stream Re-Mangled: Record Winds Rage Over Scotland As Polar Amplification Ramps Up Yet Again

Source: Robert Scribbler

Polar Amplification January 9

(Polar Amplification on Friday January 9, 2014 plainly visible in the GFS summary. Another warmer than average day for the Arctic in a warming world. Image source: Climate Reanalyzer.)

For the Arctic, it’s another much warmer than normal day…

Temperature anomalies for the region spiked to 3.55 degrees Celsius above the, already hotter than normal, 1979-2000 average. And a swath of the Arctic Ocean stretching from Greenland to Siberia experienced extraordinary 15-22 C above average temperatures.

It’s another day of Arctic Amplification — the fourth in an ongoing progression this week. Another day of extreme dipole temperature anomalies. And another day of record-setting weather. All symptoms, plain as day, of a world undergoing a fit of rapid, human-induced heating.

Warmth in The High Arctic Drives the Cold Out

Last night, while studying Earth Nullschool, I found a temperature of 27 F near Zemlya — an Island in the Arctic Ocean off Siberia. The night before last, I captured these two pictures — one of a region a few hundred miles south of the North Pole and well north of Svalbard at 22 F and another of the surface temperature near Richmond, Virginia at 20 F.

imageimage

(Top frame temperature at 85.3 North, 39.2 East. Bottom frame temperature at 36.9 North and 77.3 West. In other words — it’s warmer up north than down south. Image source: Earth Nullschool. Data Source: NOAA, Global Forecast System Model.)

In other words, it was warmer just off Santa’s front porch than it was thousands of miles to the south in Richmond, VA.

In technical meteorological parlance there’s a term for such warm north, cold south temperature variations — dipole. In this case, it’s a cold North American Continent and a warm Atlantic Ocean pushing much higher than average temperatures far into the Arctic.

Jet Stream Re-Mangled — High Amplitude Jet Stream Waves

Such a warm airs surging north forcing cold airs south arrangement can result in some pretty extreme waviness in the Jet Stream. The kind of waviness that Dr. Jennifer Francis has warned is set off by just the kind of Arctic warming we witnessed this week.

And, as we can plainly see in the map below, we have an extraordinary meridional pattern in the Jet Stream occurring in perfect coordination with the current instance of polar heating:

image

(Last night’s extaordinarily high amplitude Jet Stream pattern. Note the greatly intensified storm track setting Scottland directly into its sights. Image source: Earth Nullschool. Data Source: NOAA, Global Forecast System Model and various.)

I suppose some may call this kind of instance circumstantial. But what a circumstance, especially when one considers the plainly obvious and visible mechanism of the current polar temperature spike, the subsequent southward displacement of warm air from the polar zone, and the related warm air invasion flooding up from the North Atlantic into the heat compromised polar core.

It’s as easy to see as 1,2,3.

This re-arranging of air masses has re-instated the kind of circulation pattern around Greenland we warned about during late November of 2014. A kind of off-center displacement of air masses that shoves cold toward hot and can result in some rather extreme weather.

Record-Setting Winds over Scotland Last Night

Dr. Francis has also mentioned this resulting heightened severe weather potential in her research. And she can count herself among such visionaries as Dr. James Hansen who warned of ramping storm intensity resulting from a combined polar amplification and melting and softening of the remaining great glaciers in Greenland and, later, Antarctica.

Unfortunately, the more recent polar amplification episode did set off a spate of rather extreme weather in Scotland. The North Atlantic storm track intensified as temperature differentials ramped up. On Tuesday, a 930 mb low bombed out between Greenland and Iceland. Fed by a massive meridional air-flow, this storm soon generated very strong winds raging across the North Atlantic.

By last night, these winds roared throughout Scotland, peaking at 113 miles per hour — a new all-time record for the Northern Isles since wind measures began in 1970.

In a return to the kind of extreme weather that battered the UK for much of the winter of 2013-2014, trees were torn down, power lines unmoored and roads and railways blocked. This, in turn, forced a wide-scale emergency response throughout Scotland after last night’s brutal battering by hurricane force winds. From the BBC:

The storm caused the suspension of all ScotRail trains, although some limited services are now running. More than 46,000 homes are currently without power as the Atlantic jet stream caused gusts of more 100mph (160km/h).

So the observational evidence is pretty clear. Here we have yet another instance where polar heating is driving some rather extreme Jet Stream changes coupled with related instances of record extreme weather. And as human-related warming continues to intensify, we are likely to see far worse instances than today’s minor episode.

Extreme UV Radiation Is Killing Our Trees

Trees and whole forests around the globe are in steep decline. So much of the population has completely given up any connection to the natural world and thus they do not notice how rapidly tree health has deteriorated in almost all locations. All over the world formerly healthy forests are now in very poor condition. The condition of the trees has gone from bad to worse and few take note of this, let alone show any concern. The ongoing global climate engineering programs have decimated the ozone layer. Ozone layer destruction has long since been a known and recognized consequence of introducing particulates into the atmosphere. Atmospheric spraying of nano particles is a primary aspect of solar radiation management (SRM). In short, geoengineering is destroying the ozone layer. Levels of UVB are now often up to 1000% higher than official agencies are disclosing, these are extremely dangerous levels. How do we know levels are this high? Because we can and are metering UV radiation. We are now even detecting UVC radiation at the surface, UVC is the last band of UV radiation before x-ray radiation. We are told by all “official” monitoring agencies that UVC is stopped 100,000 feet up in the atmosphere, this is also a lie. Back to the trees, what is all this radiation doing to them? The 2 minute video below illustrates one example of the harm being done.

Where is it cold? Where is it hot? The GISS “departure from normal temperature” map below should paint a strikingly clear picture to answer this question. Where is the ONLY bright blue area of substantially below normal temperatures? The Eastern half of the North American continent, why?

This is not just an anomaly, it has become the norm. The power structure’s goal is to continue confusing and dividing the US population in regard to the true state of the climate. If Americans woke up to what is unfolding in the world, and to what is being done to them by the climate engineers, there would be a shock wave around the globe. The dominos of the power structure would begin to tumble. So, what was the temperature “departure from normal” exactly a year earlier, in November of 2013? The map below is almost a duplicate of the one above, the focused cool-downs of the Eastern US has been ongoing.

temp2
Americans need to wake up to the fact that they are the subject of what is very much a psychological operation. 2014 is now officially the warmest year ever recorded on our planet, how many Americans believe this? How could they, when they are constantly being subjected to abrupt and radical engineered cool-downs. The maps above show November 2013 and November 2014, what about some of the periods between these two maps?

 

temp3
Another extremely similar scenario is above, what about later in 2014?
temp4
Is the pattern clear? There has been a constant effort to keep the Eastern half of the North American continent cooled down. The Eastern US is the most populated region of the America, the constant cold has completely polarized people’s opinions about the climate, especially in this region. No matter what the facts are from around the globe, many can only believe it’s cold because that is the case outside their own door. What is the point of all this? The power brokers are digging in and preparing for total collapse. The climate confusion they are creating with geoengineering is buying them time to continue their preparations. Global geoengineering can create intense temporary ground level (a very shallow layer of cold) cool-downs, but at what cost? Total disruption of global weather systems, derailing of the hydrological cycle, complete shredding of the ozone layer, worsening of the overall planetary warming, and irreparable contamination of the entire planet. If we are to effectively fight in the battle to expose and halt climate engineering, we must stand on solid facts and verifiable data, not opinions, spun headlines, and adopted ideology. The Eastern US is an off and on cold zone in a very rapidly warming world. The completely engineered cool-downs are adding to the overall warming, not mitigating it.

 

Record Heat in Australia Fuels Wildfires, Shuts Down Internet

Australians have good reason to dread the coming of January. It’s the peak of the summer season downunder. In recent years, global warming, driven by climate change, has caused temperatures there to soar to record levels.

With temperatures reaching highs of nearly 112 degrees Fahrenheit in some places, wildfires are blazing, hiking trails are being closed, trains are being required to run at slower speeds, and even the Internet is shutting down. It got so hot in Perth—the sixth hottest day on record—that Perth-based Internet provider iiNet went offline Monday, leaving fuming customers across Australia disconnected for six and a half hours.

“Due to record breaking temperatures in our Perth data centre earlier today, we shut down our servers as a precautionary measure,” said an iiNet spokesman. “Although redundancy plans ensured over 98 percent of customers remained unaffected, some customers experienced issues reconnecting to the internet. These issues have now been resolved.”

Naturally, users vented at online forums and on Twitter. Some offered their own complicated theories about what went wrong and what the company should have done, griping about the company’s customer service or complaining about the complainers with posts like “Hahahahahahaha I love how whingey people get over this. How many of you are paying for services with 99.9999 SLA’s? Not many I’d assume. Geez.”

In South Australia, a wildfire was raging out of control, something that’s becoming an annual occurrence. But this wildfire was said to be the worst in decades. More than 375 firefighters battled a fire in the hills northeast of Adelaide in temperatures well over 100 degrees. The fire, burning for nearly a week now, closed hospitals and caused thousands of people to flee their homes as officials declared a major emergency. South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill told residents, “If you’ve decided to stay, you need to be aware that the fire will become incredibly scary and could lead you to change your mind at some point. It could be a catastrophic decision for you to leave late.”

The Insurance Council of Australia has declared a Catastrophe for the South Australian bushfires, giving loss claims in that area priority. And while wildfire is an annual summer occurrence in Australia, they’re getting worse, thanks to manmade climate change-caused heat waves and dry conditions, and they’re encroaching on more populated areas. While rain is expected this week, it’s unclear whether they will be of any help, given the potential for gusting  winds and continued high temperatures.

The heat wave comes just as the Australian Bureau of Meteorology is reporting in its Annual Climate Statement that the country had its third hottest year ever in 2014, following the hottest on record in 2013. Its second hottest was 2005.

“Nationally, Australian temperatures have warmed approximately one degree since 1950, and the continued warmth in 2014 adds to this long-term warming trend,” the bureau’s statement said.

Strong Winds Threaten To Push Sea Ice Out Of Arctic Ocean

Source: Arctic News

The lateral viscosity of the thin Arctic sea ice cover continues to lower. In November just one quarter of the high Arctic Ocean basin above 85° north was covered by a thin this winter’s ice. This has now doubled, soon covering two quarters. The ice has been pushed away from Russia towards Canada and to the Fram Strait at phenomenal rates.

Animation by navy.mil showing 30 days of sea ice thickness, up to January 1, 2015

This is increasingly suggesting that the remaining half in front of the Fram Strait will be sucked into the Atlantic Ocean soon. The dark blue ice is newly formed crushed ice behind the North Pole (pack ice). We may well be in course to the first recorded ice free season in the Arctic Ocean. In addition, the rear is pushed from behind Canada to the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.

Animation by navy.mil showing 30 days of sea ice speed and drift, up to January 1, 2015

We need to act, now. I think we need to monitor this development almost on daily basis. I am curious to see how the ice may behave after the last remainders of the second quarter are sucked into the Atlantic Ocean and the newly forming sea ice will face the force of the Atlantic waves. That could mean extremely highly fractured sea ice across the Russian side by the return of spring 2015 sunlight.

I think we are witnessing a historic transition right now with no ice in the summers.

Year 2014 Pictures Dire Situation

The year 2014 is shaping up to be the warmest year on record and the heat is felt most strongly in the polar regions and in the oceans.
Surface Temperatures

Above images show that the Arctic is experiencing accelerating warming. This is causing jet stream changes, resulting in more extreme weather events. Besides creating havoc around the globe, such extreme weather events can further speed up warming of the Arctic Ocean and subsequent release of methane from its seafloor, as described in more detail in a recent post.

Ocean HeatThe primary driver of methane release from the Arctic Ocean seafloor is ocean heat. NOAA analysis shows that the global ocean surface temperature for the year-to-date (January through to November 2014) was 1.03°F (0.57°C) above average, the warmest such period on record. The anomaly is even more pronounced in the Norther Hemisphere, as illustrated by the image below.
Ocean temperatures can show much higher anomalies locally, as illustrated by the image below. The high sea surface temperatures near Svalbard give an indication of how warm the ocean current is below the surface.

The danger is that ocean temperatures will continue to rise, especially in the North Atlantic, and that the Gulf Stream will keep carrying ever warmer water from the North Atlantic into the Arctic Ocean, where it will destabilize methane hydrates contained in sediments under the seafloor.

Methane
Methane levels are already exceptionally high over the Arctic, as illustrated by the recent NOAA image below. Since end October 2014, huge quantities of methane have erupted from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean. As said, the primary driver of methane release from the Arctic Ocean seafloor is ocean heat. Water temperatures off the coast of North America get very high in July and it takes a few months for ocean currents to carry this heat to the Arctic Ocean. Further reasons why methane levels over the Arctic suddenly get very high from the end of October are discussed in this post.The Gulf Stream will keep carrying water into the Arctic Ocean that is warmer than the water already there. These methane eruptions will therefore continue into the new year, threatening to further accelerate warming in the Arctic and cause even more extreme weather events, wildfires and further emissions in the year 2015, in a spiral of runaway warming.

The combination image below shows the strength at which methane is erupting from the Arctic Ocean seafloor. On December 25, 2014, methane lights up the northern sky like a Christmas tree. The image shows levels at 6 km (19,820 ft) altitude, as recorded by, from top to bottom, MetOp-1 am (up to 2277 ppb), MetOp-1 pm (up to 2295 ppb) and MetOp-2 am (up to 2336 ppb).

MetOp-2 records for December 25, 2014, pm, are incorporated in the animation below, showing methane concentrations reaching levels of up to 2284 ppb at an altitude of 6 km (19,820 ft) and reaching even higher levels of up to 2329 ppb at an altitude of 9.3 km (30,570 ft).

The troposphere is deepest at tropical latitudes, where it reaches altitudes of up to 20 km (12 mi), and rather shallow at the polar regions, where it only reaches altitudes of some 7 km (4.3 mi) in winter. For high concentrations of methane to show up over the Arctic Ocean at such a high altitude is a further indication of the strength of these methane eruptions.

Furthermore, the methane that shows up in the atmosphere is only a fraction of the methane that is erupting from the seafloor, as part of the methane will be broken down by microbes as it rises up through the water and gets stuck under the sea ice.

Arctic Sea Ice

Sea ice only 1m thin at North Pole.

The above Naval Research Laboratory animation shows that, while sea ice is now covering the entire Arctic ocean, it is in many places only about one meter thin or less. The December 20, 2014, image on the right shows 1m thin sea ice at the North Pole.

Meanwhile, huge chuncks of thick sea ice are moving along the edges of Greenland and Ellesmere Island into the Atlantic ocean.

An exponential trendline based on sea ice volume observations shows that sea ice looks set to disappear in 2019, while disappearance in 2015 is within the margins of a 5% confidence interval, reflecting natural variability.

In other words, extreme weather events could cause Arctic sea ice to collapse as early as 2015, with the resulting albedo changes further contributing to the acceleration of warming in the Arctic and causing further methane eruptions from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean.

Demise of the sea ice and snow cover in the Arctic results in further acceleration of warming, not only due to less sunlight getting reflected back into space, but also due to loss of the buffer that currently absorbs huge amounts of heat as it melts in summer. With the demise of this latent heat buffer, more sunlight will instead go into heating up the water of the Arctic Ocean. For more on the latter, see the page on latent heat.

5 Big Signs The Global Engine of Deceit, Lies, and Control Are Coming To End

pyramid
Share
If you don’t see it coming, you may have been hiding in a very dark place for the last decade. The lies, deceit, fear-mongering and illusions portrayed by elite controlling entities of the world are slowly crumbling right in front of their eyes as the world is awakening. Here are 5 signs that the era of deception and duplicity is coming to an end.

1. Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex Has Been Exposed

Perhaps one of the biggest controlling entities of the world is the pharmaceutical industrial complex who has deceived billions for almost two centuries. Their corruption, fabrications and outright deceit has enveloped almost every nation on Earth. In the last decade alone, millions have outcasted drugs and vaccines from their circle of trust. More people are coming to discover that this powerful group of criminals will stop at nothing to sell their snake oil to the public. Over the last several years, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and Novartis — and all other pharmaceutical giants, which once seemed unassailable are slowly drowning. Drug discovery jobs have disappeared by the thousands in the United States and by the hundreds in Europe as the industry has cut costs in order to adjust to what is widely perceived as the end of the blockbuster-drug era.

Pharmaceutical Industrial

People are getting it. From the H1N1 scandal to HPV….from Lipitor to Vioxx, the public is catching on that most modern day diseases are man-made to sell us more poison in a vicious cycle which perpetuates until our death. Research is now showing that natural health products are as effective as man-made drugs and for the first time in history, the natural health industry is aiming to amend legislation to allow physicians to include natural health products in their practice–a change that could revolutionize the allopathic treatment model.

2. The Media Is No Longer Capable of Instilling Trust

2548_238094349680154_1158599481_n

Recent polls now show that an overwhelming 80% of the population no longer trusts mainstream newscasts. From the lies and promotion of wars to our health, the mainstream media is incapable of generating any unbiased newsworthy content without corporate or government propaganda. Conan O’Brien easily revealed how mainstream media’s scripted taking points are just a farce. This happens almost everyday on any issue you can imagine, across all networks at any time. The media, as they say “is a joke” branded to program the minds of millions though manipulation and deception. But their dominion and monopoly has been thwarted by the alternative media who are now fully engaged in exposing every lie one at a time….and we are achieving great success.

3. The Conventional Food Industry is Collapsing

By observing the chess match between anti-GMO camps and Monsanto (and their lobbyists), we see a clear indication that big agriculture, biotech and the entire food industry is in turmoil. Trade agreements currently being drafted in developed nations are attempting to secure legislation dictating all GMO labeling as illegal. Resistance against GMOs are being defined as “anti-free trade practices” that governments are attempting to enforce in the form of economic sanctions against nations that attempt to ban GMOs. Labeling initiatives spawned by various groups are being exposed as controlled opposition and the true intentions and transparency of these organizations is inevitable. Food giants are being held accountable for their manufacturing processes, toxic ingredients and lack of credibility.

Food Industry

All of these things are sure signs that the biotech industry is losing control as the entire world is awakening to the dangers of genetically modified foods and the conventional food supply. Technology is coming forward that will soon allow on-the-spot tests for environmental toxins, GMOs, pesticides, food safety and more with their smartphones and other hand-held devices as a defiant public will stop at nothing to regain independence within the food supply.

4. The Freedom Movement Is Gaining Momentum

De facto foreign administrations of unelected industrialists, financiers, academics, military leaders along with representatives from our elected government officials have been very busy the past century implementing changes into nations who were once sovereign and free. However, they have no real authority to restrict public mobility, free trade or limit access to anything. That means that everybody is free to drive without insurance, driver’s license, license plates, free to trade any articles of exchange including vitamins, supplements, healing modalities and free to consume and ingest anything they wish without restriction. This is a right of all people born on any land, and the movement to educate millions on these issues is rising across the globe. Mass populations are starting to see the reality that there is no longer sovereignty within nations. The people of these nations have lost their ability to write their own laws, avoid arrest, injury and damage from corporations which seek to remove all the freedoms from the people.

The elite societies of the world are now petrified of the awakening of these fundamental human rights. This is the fear of every official who deems their opinion can be enforced over others through artificial laws that don’t hold any weight in the highest courts. We are now declaring those rights more than ever and every beneficiary of the corrupt system is sending the police to insist that we are in wrong and they are right. It is about knowing what absolute sovereignty truly is and embracing the power to express that right regardless of anybody else’s interpretation. Police are being held accountable for these injustices and their homes and possessions are being taken from them in the highest courts as the people fight for their rights to be free and will accept no damage by illegal enforcement (the police) in the interim.

5. The Liberation of Nature and Abolishment of All Things Toxic Is Now Inevitable

More than a dozen U.S. states have now completely decriminalized the act of possessing marijuana and both Colorado and Washington have made it legal to possess, sell, transport and cultivate the plant. But soon it may be legalized across the entire country. That is quite the 180 from the federal government’s tune in 2011 when they decreed that marijuana had no accepted medical use and should remain classified as a highly dangerous drug like heroin. Nobody has the right to criminalize or restrict anybody from possessing a plant or smoking it for that matter. The rights of people to interact with nature are being recognized on all levels and cannabis liberation is a amazing step forward.

The restoration of clean drinking water through the removal of toxic fluoride is another example of how governments can no longer contain their lies, in this case the 60-year old deception of fluoride. Almost the entire world is now coming full circle to the health consequences of poisoning the water supply with fluoride. Most developed nations, including all of Japan and 97% of western Europe, do not fluoridate their water. Israel was recently added to that list. Many communities, over the last few years, stopped fluoridation in the US, Canada, New Zealandand Australia. Recently, both Wichita, Kansas and Portland, Oregonrejected fluoridation 60% to 40%. Hamilton, NZ, councilors voted 7-1 to stop 50 years of fluoridation after councilors listened to several days of testimony from those for and against fluoridation. Windsor, Ontario, stopped 51 years of fluoridation. Sixteen regional councils have halted or rejected fluoridation in Queensland since mandatory fluoridation was dropped there in Nov. 2012.

The news is spreading and a renaissance is blooming worldwide. There is no stopping it. The potential war in Syria which has no support from the American public, is a beautiful reminder that people are tuning into their own hearts and wisdom as they come to understand that war will never accomplish anything but create more war.

Get ready my friends because we are headed for an incredible ride as we pave the way for a new consciousness as we rebuild the Earth, take back our power as united and free citizens of this wonderful planet.

Geoengineered Snow Storms Wreaking Havoc Around The Globe

Can Snow Storms Really Be Engineered?

There is a mountain of data including already conducted experiments, satellite imagery, lab tests of snow, observations on the ground, and multiple existing patents,  all of which point solidly to the conclusion that snow storms are being engineered on a massive scale with well established weather modification processes.  Two known patents for the process of “artificial ice nucliation for weather modification” are posted at the bottom of this article. The Chinese government has openly admitted they are creating “artificial snow storms” but later backtracked after causing a billion dollars of damage to Beijing.

china snow

If the Chinese government can routinely create snow storms out of what should have been a rain event, how much more advanced must our government and the NATO powers be at this same process? When monitoring radar images of rain during a storm, it is now common to see the rain “flash out” to snow for no apparent reason. No orographic enhancement (when rain moves over mountains), no colliding air mass, nothing. The “meteorologists” at the Bain Capital/Rothschilds/military industrial complex owned Weather Channel, and Weather Central, call this conversion “turning over to snow”. Why would rain just “turn over” to snow for no reason, at above freezing temperatures?

Engineered Ice Nucleation Cools Air Masses

Many of the snow events occurring around the US and elsewhere begin at above freezing temperatures. Some are at temperatures of 10 degrees or more above freezing. How is this possible? Have the laws of physics changed? It is done with various processes of chemical ice nucleation. This is the same as the first aid chemical ice pack. Mix the chemicals and you have ice. Whatever the existing temperatures of a storm and the surrounding air mass at the time the artificial nucleation is commenced, temperatures are lowered significantly further by the nucleation process. If the nucleation process is started at far above freezing temperatures, then the temps can fall to near freezing or well below as the process continues. If the region where an “ice nucleated” event is being carried out is already well below freezing, the temperatures will fall to still lower temperatures. If the chemical nucleation process is inflicted aggressively enough, in already cold regions, temperatures can be driven to deadly levels. There are increasingly radical short term weather swings occurring around the globe, often from record highs to record lows in a day or two time span.

Why Would Those In Power Do This?

First, because they can. Why would the global power elite detonate over 1800 nuclear bombs? Because there is no one to stop these experiments. Because there is no regulation whatsoever of the ongoing global geoengineering programs though many “outlines” for such governance exist, as if these programs are not yet a reality. There are likely other straightforward reasons. 60 years of global climate experimentation have done horrific damage to the global climate system. The planet is warming at an astounding rate. Though there are countless forms of damage to the biosphere, climate engineering mathematically appears to be the greatest single source of damage. Massive ozone holes and methane releases are occurring. Total disruption to the hydrological cycle. Complete contamination of the Earth’s surface and all life forms.  Those at the helm of the global spraying programs are trying to “cover up” the damage that has been done to our planet (much of it from the climate engineering itself)  by spraying yet more, and likely with an ever growing list of toxic elements. Isn’t this the true definition of insanity? Doing the same thing on an ever bigger scale and expecting a different result? Though all available data makes clear that stratospheric aerosol geoengineering (SAG) can and does cool large regions temporarily, it comes at the cost of a worsened overall long term warming to the planet.  NASA’s own data confirms this.

What Are The Consequences?

The problems that arise when ice nucleation is imposed on the atmosphere are many. Some consequences we cannot yet know for certain, but what we do know is bad enough. First, the entire  hydrological cycle is disrupted, and in general, significantly reduced. When there are too many condensation nuclei, the moisture tends to migrate in the form of aerosolized cloud cover.

satellite spray

This means less overall precipitation in any form, rain or snow. Though less precipitation is the general rule, when heavy rain systems are aerosolized and chemically/artificially nucleated, significant “heavy wet snow” can still occur) Though the Weather Channel is doing their absolute best to sensationalize all the snow falling in various locations, the fact is there is a “snow drought” in much of the US. Yes, snow is falling, but not in significant amounts and the cold spells are very sporadic in nature. The ice nucleated snow storms create the illusion of a normal winter when in fact all available statistics paint a very different picture. As we get through “winter” and closer to spring, ice nucleated events will become much more obvious. “Above freezing” snow events will become more and more common. Still, it is important to remember that geoengineered snow storms can also be carried out under extreme cold scenarios. Whatever the initial air mass temperatures, the chemical nucleation mix can lower the surrounding temperatures much further. Snow from artificial ice nucleation at higher temperatures is almost always “heavy wet snow”. This is a newly introduced term pushed by the Weather Channel and other main stream media sources. The snow that does fall is toxic. There are numerous lab tests to confirm that the same highly toxic heavy metals named as primary elements in geoengineering patents are being found in this “artificially nucleated” snow. This poisons the air, soils and waters. The effects on the Northern boreal forests are already horrific. Trees are dying in mass and soil PH values are changing radically. The artificially nucleated snow can be incredibly dense and heavy (as already stated) , often causing major damage to trees and structures. How many fatalities have been caused due to the engineered winter catastrophes? Wind patterns and ocean currents are also being negatively affected by the ongoing spraying and manipulation of natural wind currents (the ionosphere heater installations around the globe also appear to be routinely manipulating the jet stream). This in turn is contributing to releasing methane hydrate deposits which threatens all life on Earth (search “geoengineering/methane release” on line). Photosynthesis is also being radically reduced. Extremely expansive “geoengineered” cloud cover results from the particulate dispersement. This type of cloud cover is often in the form of a largely featureless overcast sky.

What Is An Engineered Snow Storm Like, First Hand?

Two years ago I had to suffer through yet another ice nucleated snow storm in the woods of Northern California. In the days leading up to the storm, it was disturbing to watch the local TV “weathermen” trying to explain just how it was going to snow so much when only days earlier our region was almost 75 degrees. They tried to explain how the 30 to 40 mile an hour winds from the storm would mysteriously die down only over the upper Sacramento Valley and that’s when the snow would fall, even with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s (diminished wind is also a known consequence of atmospheric aerosol saturation/geoengineering spraying, though there are always exceptions where winds can be strong ). As is now the rule, the approaching storm brought skies full of jet sprayed geoengineering trails which covered the entire horizon in short order. A sickly colored light penetrated this toxic canopy from the early morning hours of. Natural clouds eventually drifted into view under the manmade over-story but they did not have the usual majestic appearance as they were “melted” into engineered clouds above due to the aerosol saturation. The leading edge of almost all storms are sprayed heavily. This is the atmospheric river of the storm. The “AR” is a stated area of preferred spraying by the geoengineers themselves. The usual effect of this is a day or so delay of the storm and this case was no different. On that day, the local weathermen did their best to explain why the storm did not come in the day before as originally predicted. It “slowed down” they said. As the evening progressed, the 500 ft snow level that was predicted  for that afternoon did not happen. It seemed in this case the temps were so warm that the big chemical “cool down” took more effort, more spraying. It seemed the geoengineers might not pull it off as by 11 pm it was still raining at the 2000+ foot level on the mountain top where I and my family live. It was still well above freezing. Waking up at 5 am, I could already see broken trees from the massively heavy concrete snow that had apparently started some hours earlier in the night though the temperatures were still above freezing. I quickly bundled up and went outside to beat the “snow” off the drooping lims of countless trees. This is easier said than done in the case of such “heavy wet snow”. It sticks like glue to everything it hits as it is in the process of melting even as it is still falling. It is not like the snow of my youth, fluffy powdery snow which easily came off the trees. There was, as predicted, no more wind. In the silence of the woods, jet after jet could be heard flying slow and low above the clouds. The snow kept falling. Into the night, though soaked to the bone from the soggy snow, I kept up my attempt to save the trees on our mountain. As the night went on, a sound that is very painful to me could be heard in increasing frequency on distant ridges and in deep canyons. Scattered throughout the darkness was the sound of trees crackling and snapping, being crushed under the weight of the “heavy wet snow”. These are native trees, trees that have adapted to the historical conditions in this region. I have been through snow events here that dropped two or three times the depth of this snow with no damage, but this snow is different. Even the Canyon Live Oak, the strongest oak in the region, buckles under the weight and adhesion of this snow. It does not sluff off the trees but only sticks and builds (frequent ice storms have also increased radically due to the chemical ice nucleation process. Later in the night, the sickening sound of collapsing trees in the distant dark was almost overwhelming.

snow fall tree

The only other sound that broke the silence was the constant parade of jets in the clouds overhead flying very low throughout the entire storm. By morning, half of the 20 inch depth of cement snow had already melted. The temperatures were still in the upper 30s and the snow had stopped. Countless broken and uprooted trees lay on the forest floor. Why? At this moment, there were virtually no jets to be heard. None. Soon enough, the snow turned back over to rain.  No jets, no ice nucleation, no more snow at the above freezing temperatures.

What Can We Do?

We are all in a literal fight for life. Our climate system and atmosphere are being systematically ripped apart. Every breath we take is tainted with the toxic metals and chemicals they are spraying. Every bite of food we eat, the same. There is no “organic” anything at this point as researchers from Europe and other parts of the planet  have recently shown. These toxic elements and other influences are being taken into all that lives. On top of this we are all being bombarded by the constant radio frequency transmissions that are also a part of the climate engineering insanity. Educate yourself on this most dire issue. Arm yourself with essential tools for educating others. It is far more productive to hand someone some credible information they can review at their leisure than to corner them with a rant that only puts up their defenses. Examples of information flyers can be found at  “geoengineeringwatch.org/ads”.  Stand up, make your voice heard by sharing credible data with all you know, it’s now or never.

Engineering The Climate To Shape Public Opinion

2015 vortex
Share
How does the power structure continue to baffle and confuse the US population as to the true state of the climate? By engineering the weather in a manner that creates the desired headlines at times that will create the most impact in regard to public perception. In the coming week the completely engineered “polar vortex” will return just in time to finish out 2014 and bring in 2015. The timing of this completely engineered event will deliver just the sort of headlines needed to continue the totally orchestrated bigger picture confusion that has been the hallmark of the American population in regard to the true state of the climate. My thanks to Roger Landry for outlining the climate engineering deception that is being used to mask an unfolding global cataclysm while at the same time actually contributing to the very cataclysm itself.

Polar Vortex Restarted: Methane & Eminent Catastrophe

Source: The Liberty Beacon, article by Roger Landry

Let us discuss catastrophe beyond anything except a full scale, all out, nuclear exchange … but just as deadly and final … And one that may have already been triggered to the ultimate detriment of all humanity!

There seems to be less and less normal, or naturally occurring, weather as we progress these days. A close look at satellite photos recently shows a massive proliferation of atmospheric spraying and HAARP influence off the Pacific coast of the US generating or initializing another Polar Vortex that will bring another extremely cold snap to the heartland of America, as well as off the eastern coast of the US with the intent of producing the same results in the UK and Europe.

The polar vortex will bring a short spell of severe cold to the central United States. This is being done as a psy-op, to convince the US congress, and the American people, that an “ice age is coming”. This is another delay tactic (like the IPCC), to guarantee the Arctic methane venting goes far enough, that it cannot be stopped. The actual truth, is that the world is heating VERY rapidly, and is passing the “tipping point” right now. So, the weather controllers, who are maintaining the “polar vortex”, are guilty of genocide, ecocide, and violation of Internationale law.

The problem is not only what is being perpetrated … but includes what it is intended to mask, cover up or hide from the masses. Extinction level events are unfolding on this planet as we speak with little to no notice by a vast majority of this planets population … Like cattle being herded ignorantly and blindly to the slaughter.

In the information presented in the above video, please take special notice of the result of intentionally pulling the super cold Arctic air south into central North America and Europe, in what is being described as a Polar Vortex. Warmer air floods in on the backside of this phenomenon to replaced the frigid air drawn away, thus facilitating unnatural increased temperatures in the polar region.

There is a serious need to look at what is developing in the Arctic and understand that loss of ice reflectivity has already set off one feedback loop, where open expanses of water are absorbing solar radiation and driving water temperatures higher. As they continue to climb, an inevitability has been set culminating in a thawing and releasing of massive quantities of methane. While it’s impossible to state a specific point when a runaway scenario could occur, it behooves us to wake up to a real danger right before our eyes … because there are already those stating “The Gun Has Been Fired”.

Dr. Guy McPherson pulls no punches as he updates us with the latest news regarding the “Methane Monster” evidently exploding in the Arctic and Northern regions. The “clathrate gun” has been fired he reports, and the methane clathrate melt levels seem to be increasing exponentially.

At unexpectedly high levels in the atmosphere, methane hydrate gas could exacerbate global temperature rise at such a highly accelerated rate as to create havoc to all life on the planet.

If this is truly unfolding as Dr. McPherson suggests, steps should be taken immediately to ameliorate emissions with the hopes of mitigating negative repercussions.

A great source and Contributor to The Liberty Beacon project, Dane Wigington of GeoEngineering Watch, states “Ch4 (methane) is 20 x more potent (as a greenhouse gas) than Co2 over a 100 year time horizon, we don’t have that much time. Over a 10 year horizon Ch4 is 100 to 120 x more potent, over a 30 day to 60 day horizon it can be as much as 1000x worse than Co2. We are truly in free fall.”

The massive volume of Methane trapped at the bottom of frigid oceans in the form of frozen methane hydrates, does have the ability to end all life on this planet if released in enough volume and over a limited period of time. When the water temperature directly above the sea bed rises, methane hydrates dissolve and release the previously bound methane. This scenario portends that enormous amounts of this very powerful greenhouse gas will be released into the atmosphere resulting in utter, catastrophic and fatal damage to the biosphere … and humanity.

What becomes alarmingly obvious is the unusual and unnaturally warm temperatures that result from intentional manipulation via these polar vortexes in the very areas of this planet where methane is trapped. The release of this killer gas has already begun with atmospheric levels magnitudes above what used to be considered the norm, and some scientists project that if it continues to escape at the increasing rate that is already taking place … continued life on this planet could be all but impossible as soon as the next 20-40 years, with some stating this could actually initiate any time within the next few years … (above video)

CAN YOU SAY “EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT”

YES I SAID THAT !!!

trouble_bubbling_in_thearctic.jpeg.size_.xxlarge.letterbox-1Methane bubbles up from warming arctic waters

If you wish to leave a viable planet for your children or grandchildren, if (as some are already saying) it is not already too late, PLEASE do some personal research! This is the most important thing you will ever research because … The genocide of humanity, or the re-terraforming of earth may already have begun, and this my skeptical friends … is NOT a guess !!!

Engineered Winter, The Toxic Deception

How long can the climate engineers confuse and divide the US population with completely manipulated “winter storms”? The latest is “winter storm Eris” as named by the power structure owned Weather Channel. Also controlling the flow of climate information to the public is the Rothschilds owned Weather CentralArtificially/chemically nucleated snow is a primary method by which the weather makers create short term toxic cool-downs. Why are they doing this? Because it creates the headlines that the power structure and its media machine need to help hide the fact that our planet is warming at a runaway pace. A “white Christmas” here and there does much to confuse the public as to what is actually unfolding on the bigger climate picture. This is one of the major purposes of global geoengineering. Extreme jet stream manipulation is a major component of the engineered cool-down of the US.
jet stream
Such contorted jet stream patterns like the one shown above were historically unprecedented, now such scenarios are increasingly the norm. How extensive is the global network of ionosphere heaters (which are used to manipulate the jet stream)? The map below gives some idea, though there are many new facilities and mobil facilities (such as SBX radar) that are not shown.
Haarp map
As the planet continues to rapidly warm overall, the geoengineers are now simply robbing cold air from one region to cool down another. When they create a cool-down in a more populated area, the weather makers get the headlines they are seeking. Again, such headlines perpetuate confusion in the population in regard to the true state of the global climate. This confusion buys time for the power structure to further prepare for the coming collapse. Where is the cold air for “winter storm Eris” coming from? It is pushed down from the North with the jet stream manipulation mentioned, and then combined with moisture which is artificially/chemically ice nucleated. The North then immediately heats up as shown below.
temp
 From record warmth to record cold in only days, such increasing extremes should be very alarming to any that are even partially awake and paying attention. 
Since we all hate Al Gore (for good reason), the public is very willing to accept any lies that fortify their disdain for him and the rest of the criminals in power. If we can leave Gore and his carbon credit scams behind, and examine verifiable data, reality will be more easily recognized. Who would want the public to believe the planet is not warming, or even cooling? Big oil, the military industrial complex, and the geoengineers, that’s who.
How powerful are artificial ice nucleating agents? View the video below for one example of biological nucleating elements. A few drops of these can instantly freeze a container of water (chemical nucleating agents can be even more powerful than biological agents).
Winter storm “Eris” was just in time for Christmas. The Weather Channel’s job is to hide the climate engineering crimes and their theatrically named “winter storms” are part of the production. The Weather Channel’s paid actors dramatize the engineered cool-downs and avoid discussion of the fact that 2014 will be the warmest year ever recorded on our planetThere were over 2400 high temperature records set in December alone over the continental US, though mainstream media hardly said a word about this. Earth has now had 358 consecutive months of above average global temperatures (over 38 years in a row), how many have heard this from any mainstream media source? What about the record shattering ocean temperatures? Yet again hardly a word from major sources. But what about the petition of 31,000 scientists that say global warming is a fraud? The truth is, the petition of 31000 scientists denying the planetary meltdown is itself is a fraud. Just because those in power (like Al Gore) are trying to profit from disaster, does not mean the disaster is not real. The power structure does all it can to profit from war and global conflict, does that mean such events are not real? Of course not. We must all base our conclusions on facts, not ideology. The biosphere is warming at an extreme pace. Though temporary surface cool-downs are being created, climate engineering is making a bad climate scenario far worse overall and poisoning the entire planet in the process. Geoengineering is decimating what is left of Earth’s life support systems.  All those in the climate science and meteorological communities that are hiding the climate engineering crimes from the public should be considered criminal accomplices to these crimes. The responsibility of sounding the alarm rests with all of us, we must each do our part in the battle to reach critical mass of awareness with the population.

2014 Will Be The Hottest Year On Record

According to data from NOAA, 2014 is sure to set a new temperature record

For those of us fixated on whether 2014 will be the hottest year on record, the results are in. At least, we know enough that we can make the call. According the global data from NOAA, 2014 will be the hottest year ever recorded.

I can make this pronouncement even before the end of the year because each month, I collect daily global average temperatures. So far, December is running about 0.5°C above the average. The climate and weather models predict that the next week will be about 0.75°C above average. This means, December will come in around 0.6°C above average. Are these daily values accurate? Well the last two months they have been within 0.05°C of the final official results.

What does this all mean? Well, when I combine December with the year-to-date as officially reported, I predict the annual temperature anomaly will be 0.674°C. This beats the prior record by 0.024°C. That is a big margin in terms of global temperatures.

For those of us who are not fixated on whether any individual year is a record but are more concerned with trends, this year is still important. Particularly because according to those who deny the basic physics and our understanding of climate change, this year wasn’t supposed to be particularly warm.

For those who thought that climate change was “natural” and driven by ocean currents, this has been a tough year. For instance, using NOAA standards, this year didn’t even have an El Niño. NOAA defines an El Niño as 5 continuous/overlapping 3-month time periods wherein a particular region in the Pacific has temperatures elevated more than 0.5oC.

Interestingly, we are currently close to an El Niño, and if current patterns continue for a few weeks, an official El Niño will be announced. But it hasn’t been yet, and if we do get an El Niño, it will affect next year more than this year. How could the hottest year have occurred then, when the cards are not stacked in its favor? The obvious and correct answer is, because of continued emission of greenhouse gases.

As I write this post, I am attending one of the premier earth sciences conference, the Fall AGU Conference which is held each December in San Francisco. Thousands of scientists, including a large number of climate scientists are meeting, presenting, and sharing the latest research about our planet.

Here, among the experts, there is little fixation on the record. On the other hand, there was little fixation on the so-called “halt” to global warming that the climate-science deniers have been trumpeting for the past few years. The latest data paint a clear picture. The Earth is warming. The oceans are warming, the land is warming, the atmosphere is warming, the ice is melting, and sea level is rising.

These climate science deniers have had a bad year. It has been shown that in many cases, their science is in error and their understanding of the Earth’s climate faulty. This record temperature, according to NOAA, has made their life even more difficult. The so-called “halt” to global warming was never true in the first place, as I wrote recently. But now, a claim that global warming has stopped cannot be made with a straight face.

Of course, the science deniers will look for something new to try to cast doubt on the concept of global warming. Whatever they pick will be shown to be wrong. It always is. But perhaps we can use 2014 as a learning opportunity. Let’s hope no one is fooled next time when fanciful claims of the demise of climate change are made.

Warming Oceans Are Bleaching Coral Reefs, Putting Ecosystems at Risk

Increase in ocean temperatures ‘may not seem like a lot but it makes a big difference to corals,’ scientists say

 

Global warming is ‘bleaching’ coral reefs across the entire northern Pacific, scientists said Monday, warning that the phenomenon—caused in part by warming ocean temperatures—puts entire ecosystems at risk.

“The worst coral bleaching event ever recorded for the Marshall Islands has been occurring since mid-September,” Karl Fellenius, a Majuro-based marine scientist with the University of Hawaii told AFP. Major bleaching has also been documented near Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, the northwestern Hawaiian Islands, and Kiribati.

“When a coral reef bleaches, it’s a lot more than just what happens to the individual corals, it’s affecting the entire ecosystem present on that reef.”
—Mark Eakin, NOAA

Bleaching occurs when corals are stressed by changes in conditions such as temperature, light, or nutrients, leading them to expel the algae (zooxanthellae) living in their tissues, which in turn causes the coral to become completely white.

After witnessing the phenomenon firsthand, the Guardian described “devastated expanses of coral that look like forests covered with snow.”

In a National Ocean Service podcast earlier this month, Mark Eakin, coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coral Reef Watch, explained the effects of coral bleaching, on both an individual and ecosystem scale:

Now if the event is mild enough and doesn’t last too long, the corals are able to recover their zooxanthellae, go back to normal. Although they have been stressed. They have been damaged. It does makes them more susceptible to other types of disease, just like you or I are more susceptible to the common cold if our bodies are stressed—if we’re not getting enough sleep, not enough rest, a lot of stress at work, whatever. Now if the event is really severe, then the problem is when these algae are gone, the corals have lost most of their food source, so they’re actually starving at this point. So the longer this lasts, the less other food that’s available to them, the quicker the corals are going to die.

Now that’s what happens at an individual level, but if you think about the entire reef what can happen is a reef that’s bleached really badly, you’ve got all these corals spitting out their tissues and algae into the water. All of that is degrading. You get a lot of bacterial action. In really shallow areas the water starts to smell because you’re getting all of this rotting tissue on the surface. You get this slick forming. The other thing though is it’s not just the corals that are affected. Everything living on that reef is affected.

Sometimes you talk about wishing you could “unsee” something. When I was diving on reefs in Thailand during the major bleaching event in 2010, that is something that I would like to be able to erase and I can’t. The corals were white. The fish were swimming around stunned—they didn’t know where to go. The anemones were bleached white. Anemones also have zooxanthellae so they were bleaching as well. The clownfish weren’t going into their anemones; they were swimming around, jumping into corals when they felt threatened rather than going into their anemones. The giant clams were bleached. They also have microscopic algae in their tissues. And everything just looked like it was in shock. The entire reef was in shock. So, when a coral reef bleaches, it’s a lot more than just what happens to the individual corals, it’s affecting the entire ecosystem present on that reef.

Fellenius said that for months, sea surface temperatures had been, on average, half to a full degree Celsius higher than normal, adding: “This does not seem like a lot but it makes a big difference to corals.”

And they’re not likely to get a break anytime soon. In early December, the World Meteorological Organization warned (pdf) that “steady warming of the tropical Pacific Ocean over the past two months has resulted in ocean surface temperatures reaching weak El Niño levels.”

According to AFP, “[t]he Asian Development Bank warned last month that widespread coral bleaching would have a major impact on Pacific island nations, many of which are heavily reliant on tourism.”

Documents Show Navy’s Electromagnetic Warfare Training Would Harm Humans and Wildlife

2014_1215ja_

Source: Truthout, article by Dahr Jamail

If the US Navy gets its way, it will begin flying Growler supersonic warplanes over Olympic National Forest and wilderness areas of the Western Olympic Peninsula next September in order to conduct electromagnetic warfare training exercises.

As Truthout previously reported, this would entail flying 36 jets down to 1,200 feet above ground in some areas, in 2,900 training exercises lasting up to 16 hours per day, 260 days per year, with the war-gaming going on indefinitely into the future. The Navy’s plans also include having 15 mobile units on the ground with towers emitting electromagnetic radiation signals for the planes to locate as part of their exercises.

The Navy appeared to attempt to slide their plans by the public by choosing not to advertise public comment periods and meetings in the local media of the areas where their war games would be taking place. However, word got out and the Navy has had to extend public comment periods and hold more public meetings.

Navy personnel have been met with outrage, anger and a growing concern from the public about the negative health impacts to humans and wildlife in the areas where their war games are planned.

The Navy’s response has been to point people toward their own so-called environmental assessment (EA), and claim that “no significant impacts” will occur to wildlife or humans from their electromagnetic war games.

However, Truthout has acquired several documents from the Navy, Air Force and even NASA that directly contradict the Navy’s claims that their exercises pose no threat to wildlife and humans, and spoke with an expert on the human impact of electromagnetic radiation fields who also refutes the Navy’s claims.

Dr. Martin Pall, a professor emeritus of biochemistry and medical sciences with Washington State University, has written several peer-reviewed papers on the subject of how electromagnetic radiation of various levels impacts human beings, as well as given international lectures on the subject.

Pall told Truthout that these claims by the Navy are “untrue,” and provided reams of evidence, including his own scientific reports, that document, in detail, the extremely dangerous impacts of even very low levels of the microwave and electromagnetic radiation that the Navy would be emitting during their war games.

Pall’s paper, titled “Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects,” outlines the impact of electromagnetic radiation on biological organisms, and was given the honor of being posted on the “Global Medical Discovery” site as one of the top medical papers of 2013.

Pall told Truthout that the Navy has not provided “any evidence” to support their claims that electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) do not impact wildlife and humans deleteriously.

According to Pall, a NASA study, and more then 1,000 other scientific reports and studies, the health impacts of even the Navy’s lowest levels of electromagnetic radiation emissions are shocking.

The Doctor’s Opinion

Pall explained that people and agencies that advocate for the current safety standards around EMF levels claim that we only have to be concerned about their thermal/heating effects.

Pall’s aforementioned paper and the 24 studies cited within it show that the generally accepted EMF safety standards are based on a false assumption: “that all you have to worry about is heating.”

The Navy claims that there is “no conclusive evidence” that EMF radiation harms humans or wildlife due to “inconsistent data” and “conflicting reports” on the subject.

Pall vehemently disagrees with this position.

His analysis of scientific reports and data shows that a great number of them show harmful effects at non-thermal levels, when it is viewed consistently according to cell types, fields and end points of studies. Nevertheless, many of the studies claimed there were “no effects” from EMF radiation, simply because the effects were non-thermal, despite the studies themselves showing evidence of non-thermal effects.

“So in the data there is no inconsistency whatsoever. None,” according to Pall.

“This has been going on for years, and people have been assured of safety based on these things and it is absolute nonsense,” he explained. “So we have a situation now where most people in the world are exposed to microwave frequency radiation based on scientific studies that have no scientific merit.”

Pall said he sees the entire regulating system as flawed, and there is ample scientific evidence to back his perspective.

“We know the claims that you only have to worry about heating effects are false; there is no question on that,” he said. “All the assurances of safety are based on that assumption. So this whole thing is of great concern.”

According to Pall, there is ample evidence of biological effects from EMF radiation that are “extremely worrisome.” These include cellular DNA damage that causes cancer and infertility, “and both of these have been repeatedly reported to occur with low-level exposures.”

Nevertheless, Pall added, “There are studies that don’t report these, because they are done under different conditions, and that is not surprising.”

To make his point, Pall cited an infertility study conducted with rats that showed there was less fertility with each generation, “and by the fifth generation they were completely infertile.”

Pall was very clear in his assessment of the potential impact of the Navy’s EMF war-gaming plans, as well as how EMF radiation impacts our daily lives – from cell phones, to wireless networks, to the myriad other electronic devices that are so common today.

“So what we’re doing is exposing ourselves to these fields,” he said. “What the Navy is doing we have no idea because they don’t tell us . . . but from what little they have told us, they are using a lot of pulse fields in wavelengths that are damaging to us, to biological organisms. They give us not one iota of evidence of what biological effects are produced by those fields, and don’t even tell us what fields they are using. You only find empty statements of ‘don’t worry about these things.'”

Numerous studies back another of Pall’s points, which is that there is ample evidence that younger people are more susceptible than older people to the harmful effects of EMF radiation.

“This is why childhood leukemia is more common than adult leukemia,” Pall said.

Dean Millett, the district ranger for the Pacific district of the Olympic National Forest, has issued a draft notice of a decision in which he had agreed with the Navy’s finding of “no significant impact,” which has cleared the way for a US Forest Service special permit to be issued to the Navy for the war games. Millet, however, insists that the decision is his to make, but claims that he has not made a final decision yet.

Millet claims to not be concerned about the impact of the Navy’s war-gaming on amphibians, as well as other wildlife, including birds.

“Millet’s statements about the Navy’s EIS [environmental impact statement] being solid, and his not worrying about amphibians, are interesting to me,” Pall said when asked about the position of Millet and the Forest Service. “Millet has been emailed this evidence, that amphibians are particularly sensitive to these fields, and much of the amphibians’ decline around the world are being attributed to these fields. We also know that migrating birds are particularly susceptible. Yet neither Millet nor the Navy has given any evidence to the contrary, and that is not science. Science is always based on evidence.”

During a recent public information meeting, the Navy told Truthout that their Growler jets would not be emitting any EMF radiation, despite the fact that all the planes they intend to use for their war-gaming will be “fully equipped” with all of the electromagnetic warfare weapons available for radar jamming, and other operations.

If what the Navy says is true, and that the only EMF radiation signals emitted will be from their 15 mobile ground towers, which they claim to be “no worse than a cell phone tower,” this will still be extremely hazardous to biological organisms in the area, according to Pall.

“There are close to 1,000 studies on electromagnetic fields that show the production of oxidated stress,” he said. “So even just using a cell phone gives you oxidative stress in your brain by breaking down your blood brain barriers that protect you from infections and other things.”

Pall explained that, according to his and numerous other studies, there are numerous neuropsychiatric effects caused by this “low-level” EMF radiation, including depression.

Physical effects include heart arrhythmias and tachycardia, “and these can lead to sudden cardiac deaths,” Pall said. “Slow heartbeats also occur at increasing rates, and these are indirect effects and they are all life threatening. There is a lot of literature on cardiac effects on humans, and I’m writing a paper on it right now.”

Pall also cited a study that showed that when young rats are exposed to low-level EMF radiation, “you end up with middle-aged rats that have Alzheimer’s disease. Rats don’t normally develop Alzheimer’s.”

Pall cited one of the philosophers of science whose work determined the structure of modern science, Karl Popper, who believed the strongest type of scientific evidence is that evidence which falsifies a theory.

“So we have literally thousands of studies that have falsified the heating paradigm for microwave fields, each of which individually have falsified the claim that all you have to worry about is heating,” Pall explained. “Now, what Popper would say then is, obviously the statement that all you have to worry about is heating is a false claim. You only have to falsify it once. So the only way you can claim safety is to look at each of those individual studies and prove that it has been deeply flawed. The Navy hasn’t done that, nor has the ranger, and they haven’t done it because it can’t be done.”

Pall is confident in this statement because in order for the Navy and Forest Service to claim the war-gaming will be safe, they would have to test every EMF field, at every level of frequency emission, at every distance, for every human and animal, at every age.

But instead of conducting this kind of thorough research, according to Pall, “They are planning on running a huge experiment without collecting the data, so everyone out there will be exposed and be a part of their experiment.”

2013 paper published in the journal Reviews on Environmental Health, titled “Radiation from wireless technology impacts the blood, the heart and the autonomic nervous system,” lists a series of 14 different pleas from multiple scientists who state the need for much more vigorous action on the health effects from microwave EMFs.

Nevertheless, the Navy and Forest Service maintain their position that there would be “no significant impact” from the electromagnetic war-gaming, despite reams of well-documented scientific evidence to the contrary.

Thus, Pall believes the burden of proof lies with both the Navy and the Forest Service.

“So the Navy’s response is both untrue and illogical,” he said. “We know all these fields have all these effects. So the Navy has to come up with the evidence that proves their EMF fields don’t cause all these problems. The Navy and the ranger [Millet] need to answer these questions. I’ve seen no inconsistencies in the literature at this point, and what they need to do as scientists, as opposed to propagandists, is to show that each study that falsifies their point of view is deeply flawed, and they’ve not even started to do that, and there are thousands of studies in the scientific literature.”

Other Studies

In February 2014, Willie Taylor, director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance with the US Department of the Interior, sent a letter to Eli Veenendall with the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration. In it, Taylor lists several concerns about the impact of communication towers, as well as towers emitting “electromagnetic radiation.”

“The Department recommends revisions to the proposed procedures to better reflect the impacts to resources under our jurisdiction from communication towers,” Taylor writes in the letter. “The placement and operation of communication towers, including un-guyed, unlit, monopole or lattice-designed structures, impact protected migratory birds in two significant ways. The first is by injury, crippling loss, and death from collisions with towers and their supporting guy-wire infrastructure, where present. The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by them.”

The letter, of which Truthout acquired a copy, included an attachment that stated: “Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007).”

The Navy consistently claims that their towers will only emit as much radiation as cell towers, yet this is exactly the level of radiation cited in the aforementioned letter as a problem, as well as the levels described by Pall, the electromagnetic radiation expert.

Furthermore, the letter notes that the Federal Communications Commission continues to use outdated exposure standards when it comes to radiation emitted from cell phone towers.

“The problem,” the letter continues, “appears to focus on very low levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation. For example, in laboratory studies, T. Litovitz (personal communication) and DiCarlo et al. (2002) raised concerns about impacts of low-level, non-thermal electromagnetic radiation from the standard 915 MHz cell phone frequency on domestic chicken embryos – with some lethal results (Manville 2009, 2013a). Radiation at extremely low levels (0.0001 the level emitted by the average digital cellular telephone) caused heart attacks and the deaths of some chicken embryos subjected to hypoxic conditions in the laboratory while controls subjected to hypoxia were unaffected (DiCarlo et al. 2002).”

The letter concludes:

Balmori found strong negative correlations between levels of tower-emitted microwave radiation and bird breeding, nesting, and roosting in the vicinity of electromagnetic fields in Spain. He documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death in House Sparrows, White Storks, Rock Doves, Magpies, Collared Doves, and other species. Though these species had historically been documented to roost and nest in these areas, Balmori (2005) did not observe these symptoms prior to construction and operation of the cellular phone towers.

Furthermore, a NASA study published in April 1981, titled “Electromagnetic Field Interactions with the Human Body: Observed Effects and Theories,” was clear about the damage that EMF radiation caused to humans. Information for the NASA report was collected from over 1,000 written sources that “included journals, conference proceedings, technical reports, books, abstracts, and news items,” and “additional sources included in-person meetings, telephone interviews, and lecture tapes.”

“Both theories and observations link non-ionizing electromagnetic fields to cancer in humans,” the report notes. “Man is changing his terrestrial electromagnetic environment . . . If he knew the consequences of these changes, he might wish to compensate for or enhance them.”

The study “is concerned chiefly with those lower frequencies” of EMF radiation, just as are most of the aforementioned studies as well as Pall’s work, all of which obviously applies to the impact of the Navy’s claims that only their towers would be emitting signals, and not their Growler warplanes.

As for adverse effects from EMF radiation, the report states, “Some result in death and persistent disease,” with other impacts being “ventricular fibrillation and sudden infant death syndrome,” “cataracts,” “accelerated aging,” and that electromagnetic fields “may promote cancer” and cause a “decrease in sex function.”

The NASA study lists dozens of other human health impacts, and one of the tables in the report, titled, “Subjective effects on persons working in radio frequency electromagnetic fields,” lists symptoms that include hypotension, exhausting influence on the central nervous system, decrease in sensitivity to smell, periodic or extreme headaches, extreme irritability, increased fatigability, and intensification of the activity of the thyroid gland.

Further evidence comes from Swiss Re, a group which describes itself as “a leading wholesale provider of reinsurance, insurance and other insurance-based forms of risk transfer,” which released their own risk assessment report, within which they listed “emerging risk topics” which could impact the insurance industry in the future.

The report lists “unforeseen consequences of electromagnetic fields” as having “high potential impact.”

Aircraft noise, another issue related to the Navy’s war-gaming plans, has also been noted as biologically harmful by the Navy itself.

According to the Naval Research Advisory Committee’s April 2009 “Report on Jet Engine Noise Reduction,” jet noise is described as “a problem” and the Navy was advised to take “actions to reduce noise in existing and next generation tactical jet aircraft engines.”

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
For every three decibels over 85, the permissible exposure time before hearing damage can occur is cut in half.

Decibel level Example and Permissible Exposure Time
30 Whisper
45 Refrigerator humming, rainfall
60 Normal conversation
85 Heavy city traffic; 8 hours
95 Motorcycles; 1 hour
105 MP3 player at maximum volume; 7.5 minutes
113 Older Navy jets at 1,000 feet; less than 1 minute
120 Sirens; less than 30 seconds
150 Gun muzzle blast, Growler jets at takeoff. (No noise levels exist for Growlers flying in trios at 1,200 feet.) INSTANTANEOUS HEARING LOSS

Sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

The report also acknowledges that the US Department of Veterans Affairs was spending more than $1 billion annually on hearing loss cases alone, as well as the fact that the Navy’s jet noise is “a serious health risk,” and that despite this, “tactical jet noise levels have increased as the velocity and airflow from these engines have increased to produce added thrust.”

The executive summary of this report states that the ongoing hearing loss issues and efforts toward increasing hearing protection of Navy personnel will “Require further development of noise abatement procedures to minimize the noise footprint around Naval and Marine Air Stations. And finally, it will require more research into the physiological effects of the full spectrum of noise – including low frequency pressure levels – on humans.”

As for impact on wildlife, Dr. Robert Beason, a professor of biology at the State University of New York at Geneseo, speaking at a workshop titled “Avian Mortality at Communications Towers” sponsored by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Ornithological Council, and the American Bird Conservancy, made several statements of concern about the impact of microwave signals and other electromagnetic radiation from communication towers similar to the towers the Navy plans to use for their warfare training.

“Peter Semm and I have found that a pulsed microwave signal results in changes in the rate of spontaneous activity of superficial neurons in the avian brain,” Beason said. “These responses are occurring in higher centers of the brain, not in the lower centers where they could be filtered out.”

He concluded his presentation urging caution, and clearly stating that more work needs to be done to safeguard migratory birds in regards to radio and electromagnetic radiation emitting towers located where they fly.

“There are numerous questions related to the features of communication towers for which we lack basic knowledge of either the neural or the behavioral responses of the birds,” Beason said. “Gaining this type of information is paramount in determining what features of these towers can be modified in such a way to decrease their attractiveness to birds to allow communication field engineers to design and construct these towers in such a way to reduce the impact on migratory birds.”

Navy Admits Harmful Biological Effects

On October 4, 1971, the Naval Medical Research Institute published a research report written by Dr. Zorach Glaser, of which Truthout acquired a copy. The title of the report is “Bibliography of Reported Biological Phenomena (‘Effects’) and Clinical Manifestations Attributed to Microwave and Radio-Frequency Radiation.”

Given that the Navy continues to claim that their EMR warfare training exercises will have “no significant impact” on humans, it is interesting to note that their own research paper’s abstract states:

More than 2,000 references on the biological responses to [microwave and] radio frequency and microwave radiation, published up to June 1971, are included in the bibliography. (Three supplementary listings bring the number of citation to more than 2,300.) Particular attention has been paid to the effects on man of non-ionizing radiation at these frequencies.

The Navy’s paper lists well over 100 negative biological effects caused by microwave and radio frequency radiations, of which here is a partial list from their report: corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, alteration of the diameter of blood vessels, liver enlargement, altered sex ratio of births, decreased fertility, sterility, altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, altered penal function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, hand tremors, chest pain, thrombosis, alteration in the rate of cellular division, anorexia, constipation, altered adrenal cortex activity, chromosome aberrations, tumors, altered orientation of animals, birds and fish, loss of hair, and sparking between dental fillings.

Pall found the report notable, and suggested that in order to prove there are no biological effects possible from their EMR warfare training, the Navy would need to provide a specific response to each of the studies cited in their own report.

“What they need to show is that none of the over 2,000 studies that should be well known to them are not relevant to their planned tests for the Olympic peninsula,” Pall said. “Those studies date, of course from before late 1971 and there have been many thousands of apparently relevant studies published since that time, but perhaps they should start with these studies which were important enough to be cited by the Naval Medical Research Institute in 1971.”

US Air Force Acknowledges Health Effects

A June 1994 US Air Force document, titled, “Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review,” authored by Scott Bolen, clearly acknowledges the non-thermal health effects.

The report, signed and vetted by the US Air Force Chief of the Wide Area Radar Surveillance Division and the US Air Force Deputy Director of the Surveillance and Photonics Department, states in its abstract, “It is known that electromagnetic radiation has a biological effect on human tissue.”

The introduction of the report states that “researchers have discovered a number of biological dysfunctions that can occur in living organisms” and that “exposure of the human body to RF/MW [radio frequency/microwave] radiation has many biological implications” that range from “innocuous sensation of warmth to serious physiological damage to the eye,” and added that “there is also evidence that RF/MW radiation can cause cancer.”

The report goes on to acknowledge that RF/MW radiation “is known to have a biological effect on animals and humans” and lists biological impacts like “damage to major organs, disruption of important biological processes, and the potential risk of cancer,” among many others which include “mutagenic effects,” “cardiovascular effects,” negative effects on chromosomes, and notes that “Soviet investigators claim that exposure to low-level radiation can induce serious CNS [central nervous system] dysfunctions.”

Ongoing Concerns

Olympic Peninsula resident Karen Sullivan worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service for 15 and a half years, in Delaware, Washington, DC, and from 1998 through 2006 in Alaska. She worked in the Division of Endangered Species, External Affairs, and spent the last seven years as assistant regional director for External Affairs, which covered all media and congressional interaction and correspondence, plus outreach, publications and tribal grants for the Alaska region.

She called the Navy’s so-called environmental assessment “bogus” because “it is old and not of broad enough scope.”

“It’s baffling to try to pin down what they [the Navy] are doing on paper, but it is nonetheless very obvious what they are doing,” she said. “It’s certainly not in the public interest and certainly takes away from the public trust of these lands. How can Navy jets be allowed to fly over wilderness areas and do what they do, and potentially destroy a wilderness soundscape that exists within a wilderness area? How can that be legal? I can’t understand.”

Dr. Pete Lauritzen, a professor emeritus of engineering from the University of Washington, recently attended a Navy public information scoping session in order to find out specifics about the types and intensities of radiation that will be used in the Navy’s war games, but was frustrated by the Navy’s lack of forthrightness.

Nearly 400 people attended the scoping session, most of who expressed their concerns by filing official comments to the Navy.

Lauritzen was frank about what should be done.

“My general concern is that the EIS [environmental impact statement] should be done by an independent party that is reliable and has a good reputation. But the Navy is doing their own EIS, so that means they are withholding information and only giving out what they want, and being quite vague on specifics,” he said.

David King, the mayor of Port Townsend, a small town on the northeast tip of the Olympic Peninsula that would be heavily impacted by increased jet noise as well as affected economically from the Navy’s plans, was also present at the Navy’s recent scoping meeting in his town to express his concerns.

“My main concern is that over the last year we’ve heard much more noise impacts than we’ve heard in prior years,” King told Truthout. “And a further expansion of the Growler fleet seems to me to indicate that that situation will only get worse.”

King plans to talk with city officials in other towns and cities that will be impacted by the Navy’s plans.

Truthout contacted the Navy and asked if the Navy had conducted studies that would disprove the more than 1,000 studies and papers that show negative impacts on biological organisms resulting from EMF radiation, and if so, where could the results be viewed.

Naval Public Affairs Officer Mike Welding provided the following response:

The Navy uses the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) “Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz,” to make its determinations. The IEEE standard serves as a consensus standard developed by representatives of industry, government agencies, the scientific community and the public. Additionally, the Navy has a long history of using these systems safely and employed them successfully to provide our aviators the training they need without incident or adverse effects.

Welding also provided the “NAS Whidbey Island’s Electronic Warfare fact sheet,” which repeatedly stated that the Navy’s war-gaming has “no adverse effects to people or the environment,” but failed to provide any evidence to support these claims.

Welding did not provide any specific response to Truthout’s aforementioned questions addressing the scientifically proven negative impacts of EMF radiation on biological organisms.

Sullivan, the Olympic Peninsula resident, is frustrated by the Navy’s ongoing lack of adequate responses to people who are concerned about the possible war-gaming, and was frank about what she thought would be required to stop the electromagnetic warfare training plans for the Western Olympic Peninsula.

“The Navy is behaving in a way that makes their sense of entitlement very obvious,” she said. “And I have been told by a congressional staffer that this is probably going to have to be settled in court.”

Climate Unravelling Accelerates

There are those in government agencies and media that would have us believe the threat posed by Earth’s damaged life support systems is still far off. There are even those that completely deny there is anything wrong at all with the environment and the climate. Whatever the motive, agenda, or psychological defense behind such denial, it will very soon be impossible to ignore the catastrophic changes already occurring on our planet. These changes are accelerating by the day and will impact each and every one of us to a degree that is as of yet scarcely comprehended by the public as a whole. All forms of human activity that alter the biosphere or its ecosystems are forms of “geoengineering”. Much of the public does not yet understand this. Even in the anti-geoengineering community many still do not want to accept the fact that any and all human activities that are destructive and damaging to the planet or the atmosphere are in a sense forms of “geoengineering” ? Of course, to intentionally attempt to engineer Earth’s life support systems is the epitome of human insanity, but again, all forms of human caused damage to the planet or the climate systems must and does have extremely harmful effects. Industrialized society propelled by carbon fuel combustion was never sustainable and will  soon collapse. Rather than fearing this, collapse of the current completely destructive paradigm should be seen as a positive for life on Earth. If the current model of ecocide and genocide continues much longer, there will soon be nothing left to salvage. Our highest priority should be to expose and halt all climate engineering/weather warfare/biological warfare programs. Nuremberg type trials should then commence for all those who were responsible for these crimes of genocide and ecocide. If we can stop the climate engineering assault on our planet, it will be a quantum leap in the right direction. There will still be immense challenges to face, but if Earth is finally allowed to respond on its own to the damage done, we may yet have a chance to sustain life on our once thriving planet.

On Track To Total Global Extinction

Very few are willing to face the fact that the human race is on a trajectory for total near term extinction. If we stay on the current course, near term extinction is guaranteed. The 10 minute video below is a glimpse into the dire issue of methane release already underway that will determine all of our futures if it continues. Once formerly frozen methane deposits begin to thaw and gas into the atmosphere, a feedback loop is triggered that perpetuates itself. As more methane is released, more atmospheric heating occurs. This in turn thaws yet more methane and thus the cycle spirals out of control. The methane release is an avalanche of greenhouse gas potential on top of all the damage already done to the planet from countless sources of human activity. The current reality is actually even more dire than this film portrays. The ongoing climate engineering programs are not mitigating this problem, but rather making it worse. In the attempt to hide the unfolding climate and environmental cataclysm from the public for as long as possible, the power structure and the geoengineers are actually fueling the fire overall and effectively poisoning the entire planet in the process. If we are to accurately understand what we face, we must do objective research. It’s up to all of us to sound the alarm, this battle cannot be won by the few, all must engage. No matter how dark the horizon is, if we could expose and halt the climate engineering, it would be a giant leap in the right direction. Our planet would then be able to respond on its own to the damage already done rather than being encased in the destructive chains of geoengineering.

Monitoring And Muzzling Scientists, New Legislation Casts A Chill

So many people understandably ask the question “if all this was really going on (like climate engineering), why wouldn’t scientists and agencies speak out about it? This question is easily answered if one simply examines the bigger picture facts. NSA can and very likely is monitoring anyone and everyone that speaks out or has the potential to disclose important truths which could or would be damning for the government. This fact should not be a surprise. Legislation which has just been passed now appears to completely legalize the actions of our police state’s surveillance practices. If you wish to know how your congressman voted on this latest draconian legislation, you can do so at this link. The US and Canada are both actively and passively pressuring scientists and agencies to suppress data they do not want released to the public. Such pressure goes right down the line to those in the field. I know a California Fish and Game biologist that is reprimanded if she even tries to bring up the issue of climate engineering or the fact that the streams and waterways in California are flowing with aluminum. I have been in the forest with USDA scientists testing soils and coming up with results that showed horrifically higher PH values than the historical norms. These scientists will not speak out as they know it is a bad career decision or worse. I spoke to a NOAA scientist that said “we know about the climate engineering and are alarmed as hell, but we have no first amendment protection so we don’t know what to do”. This is the world we live in, this is the kind of governments we have. The public believes the appropriate experts and agencies would tell them of any environmental dangers of concern, but this is not reality. The control our government (and others) currently have over the flow of information is nearly total. Our “elected officials” are generally doing the bidding of the power structure. It is up to us, the people, to expose the insanity and criminality of those who currently rule the world. If we all pull together, their days in power will be numbered.
