So many breaking dire headlines about the rapidly deteriorating state of the environment are pouring in that it is impossible to cover and comprehend all the incoming reports, but we must try just the same. What will be the response of global governments to all that is unfolding? The June 16th installment of Global Alert News is below.

Denial won’t save us, apathy won’t save us, inaction won’t save us. We must focus our collective efforts to sound the alarm, we must wake the masses, we must change course. Share credible data from a credible source, doing so is exponentially more effective at waking others than a verbally communicated message alone. All are needed in this effort.

    All, from Earthweek: a diary of the planet.  The week before, for the first time, no Earthweek and I freaked but it is back, they apparently ran out of room. And so this one I love as I've been bitching about these lights forever! : Lighting hazard: Greater care may need to be taken in choosing the color of outdoor LED lighting across Earth's landscapes, as scientists warn that some hues of the modern-day lighting can be harmful to wildlife.  Researchers have spent years documenting how the brightness, color and direction of LED light affects migration, species attraction and predator-prey relationships.  A study finds that blue and whiter have the worst impacts, while the warmer yellow, amber and green LEDs are more benign. (I guess I am wildlife because I hate these, hate!  Instant migraine inducing death light and all over the place now including what I call paranoia lights which are supposed to be shielded but are not.  I've been complaining since they began.  Given them, I lost my nights, no more sitting on porch steps.  Not to mention loss of birds.  Some cities have been switching them out as apparently I'm not the only one blinded and they are causing accidents.  So, color me happy momentarily.  Everyone made fun of me for being sensitive to them, princess Rachel stuff, but no! and now proof! Yay!)  But hey, I AM sensitive and proud of it!  I suspect many if not all of us here are, which is why we notice things others do not.

    Dane, this for you: "Dying ancients: The world's oldest flowering trees are  mysteriously dying after providing food, water and shelter from the African sun to humans and animals for thousands of years.  The deaths of four of the continent's 13 oldest baobab tees, and the withering to near death of five others over the past 12 years, is being blamed by some on climate change.  But, a team studying the trees says further research is needed to determine the cause."  Could it be????

    "Carbon collection: Advances in removing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the air have significantly brought down the cost, with one process having the ability to create synthetic fuel.  Carbon Engineering's facility in western Canada has been extracting about one ton of CO2 per day at a cost of about 100$ per ton, far less than the prevailing price of about 600$.  While the captured carbon can be stored in stone deep under ground, the firm says it can use renewable energy to take the hydrogen from water and combine it with the collected carbon to create a synthetic liquid fuel.  The company says it is already making about one barrel a day."    WOW

    • Paul Vonharnish says:

      Hello Rachel Robson:  LED lighting is another death wish from our friendly get-rich-quick feigns working for the wage within the IEEE and UL (Underwriters Laboratories). Both of these organizations know damn well that LED lighting causes insomnia and emits biologically active electromagnetic emissions. They all belong behind bars for crimes against humanity… Now see this: >

      I read these studies years ago, and no competent science review has refuted the relevant facts stated therein. EMF exposure analyses by world renowned biologists generally go unread and seldom see the light of day in any mainstream publications. Money talks and the apathetic will suffer a slow and excruciating death… Just like the birds and bees and other living creatures, these reported declines in flora and fauna are only precursors to the complete collapse of the entire planetary ecosystem. That relentless ringing in your ears is your natural alarm clock, and its way past high noon…

    Trump’s Military Drops a Bomb Every 12 Minutes, and No One Is Talking About It

    https://www.truthdig.com/articles/trumps-military-drops-a-bomb-every-12-minutes-and-no-one-is-talking-about-it/

    However, we now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.

    VSF:  The Olympic Peninsula was a disgusting milky haze again today. Have a look on NASA Worldview [link] at the toxic insanity they are cooking up out over the Pacific Ocean off the west coast, California, the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver Island, etc. Gruesome. Ratzoids.

    • GretchenThomas says:

      Drove home the other day in Northwest OH near the Lake Erie shore in opaque electromagnetic-toxic-nano-particulate radioactive metallic smog; wondering to myself how people cannot question, (or object to) what is happening in the sky right in front of their eyes and so cleverly behind their backs.

      Are still experiencing weather whiplash here; Sunday temps were reportedly two degrees shy the record-breaking high 98(“F), and today (Wednesday) temps will hover below the high temp of 71(°F) as the wind blows atypically out of the East today, off the lake, coaxing whatever falls from the sky into the lake toward the municipal water processors' intakes near the shore.   http://www.13abc.com/content/news/Advisories-issued-for-beaches-along-Lake-Erie-486041171.html

      It rains here every couple of days usually with somewhere experiencing heavy downpours and flooding, as Marge (further down the Comments Section) from Up North Michigan testifies, while most everywhere else is hit or miss. There are no rain clouds, or at least none visible through the electromagnetic-toxic-nano-particulate-radioactive smog in the air. Sometimes the rain appears as a nano-mist that lasts for hours.  

      I put out a few nectar feeders and miraculously a hummingbird has been spotted at one several times. The resilient creatures that visit my gardens each day despite the human species apparent affinity for habitat eradication is sore consolation for the fact that 200-300 species of plant, animal, and insect go extinct each day. We may be at the top of the food chain, but when the bees and trees are gone, so are we…

      Its going to take all of us to make climate engineering stop; standing together and increasing the chatter about climate engineering is the only way forward. Accurately perceiving the truth is the first  crucial step; we must care enough about existential threats to take appropriate action. No ozone layer, no life on Earth.

      Hello All.
      It is obvious that we have in Iberian Peninsula, or in North Africa one haarp installation.
      And about the islands located in the region of the Atlantic where the unnatural grid patterns of the clouds are showing, there is interesting information:
      Kalaonda Plemmirio (Italy).
      Punta Huete (Spain).
      A little more to the North:
      Pico Bejenado (Spain)

    • BaneB says:

      Pedro:  I am convinced there is/are powerful microwave transmitters on the Canary Islands.  These in conjunction with atmospheric aerosol spraying are majorly impacting the weather over Morocco, the Sahara region, the Middle East, and Europe.  Spain owns these Islands.

    • Pedro says:

      Probably BaneB.

  5. Lana Lorenzen says:

    Personally, I'd call the inability of people to see what's right before their eyes the "Emperor's New Clothes" syndrome. If you've forgotten the story, look it up online. Hans Christian Andersen knew a thing or two about human behavior. And, speaking of multiple headlines, there's a new study by a Norwegian team, headed by Ole Rogeberg, from the Ragnor Frisch Center for Economic Research that indicates human intelligence quotients (IQs) have been steadily dropping since 1975. The same results has been seen in other countries, including Denmark, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Finland, and Estonia. The decline is not genetically-linked but seems to be environmental. The authors of the study conclude that "access to education is the most conclusive factor." Ha! I'll bet every dollar I have it's environmental all right, but from the poisons in our water, food, and yes, vaccines, water and air.

    • Dennie says:

      In legal terminology we call this "Willful denial."  This has been discussed here very much over the past few years.  Not news.  As old as humanity itself ;-).

    • Dennie says:

      P.S. And our inventions have made us all the dumber. Calculators and computers do all our thinking for us now and you don't even have to memorize phone numbers, driver's license no., SSN, etc.– why have a brain when you can store your vital information on a computer server Somewhere?

    • BaneB says:

      Lana:  The increasing level of methane releases into our atmosphere would slowly impact our ability to think clearly.  Combined with the industrial pollutants, and aerosol atmospheric spraying, etc., it's not surprising there is a global human cognitive disconnect.  The wonder is that some of us can still think at all.

  6. Marge says:

    Hi Dane, if you can, PLEASE look into the floods in Northern Michigan on June 17. Cities like Houghton, MI are devastated by flash floods, despite the entire city being one big hill with a canal at the bottom that flows into one of the biggest lakes in the world, Lake Superior. Flooding is UNHEARD of, and previously was unimaginable here. Sadly two fatalities including a 12 year old boy whose basement in his house collapsed right under him. So much rain fell so fast, entire roads and parking lots, even steep roads at the top of the hill, buckled and collapsed. The whitish hazy featureless skies and jet trails are constant here; our blue skies are gone too. Not much rain this spring, it felt like it was all saved up and then dumped on us all at once. I will be looking at it as much as I can but as someone new to this topic, I would sure appreciate someone with your knowledge base and expertise to evaluate this particular situation if you have the time to, or anyone else reading who is able. Thank you to anyone reading this. 

    • Dennie says:

      Marge:  A lot of the posters here supply all kinds of updates and information to their and other specific localities, and we are very actively encouraged as much as possible to do our own research.  

      What you're seeing in your sky is pretty much the same as what everyone else all over this entire planet is seeing.  Why? Because these are massively widespread operations covering thousands of miles each and every day, and the winds carry the nanoparticulates that far, too.  

      Please educate yourself by reading everything you can on this site– Though Dane checks in here and will say hello or answer the occasional question, he has a lot to do every single day besides individual tutoring of newbies… We are all of us obligated to exercise our intellectual curiosity for ourselves and do our own research, then share it here.  Now, time to get to work!

    • GretchenThomas says:

      Hello Marge, the climate terrorists have the technology to "diminish and disperse" precipitation. I live just south of the MI/OH border and we are experiencing similar extreme flooding events. Read this…   https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/climate-engineering-completely-manipulating-precipitation/

  8. Frank says:

    We think the deniers are a hopeless bunch, but I think societal denial is a thinner and thinner veneer. It used to be just your view on sky trails were the whole story, but I have long felt the growing, creepy aspects to modern life do more to confirm the great deception we live in, things like the daily lessons in how to be and not be a human being from the All and Powerful Media, the unbelievable and unending political farce, the suiciding of one too many good people, phone addiction, the talk of censoring news and information, the always "worse than expected" climate doom stories, even forced upgrades that make your computer worse. Things large and small are coming together to give this world the unavoidable feeling that the walls are closing in – to everyone.

  9. Jonathan Leitch says:

    Dane, I understand what you say about the hypocritical position that these so called "environment groups" put themselves in order  to tow the official narrative and protect their status but I have only heard you use the word "hate" when Al Gore name comes up.  Hate, for me is a strong word.  May I ask, is it personal?

    • Dane Wigington says:

          Hello, Jonathan, in regard to your question of the word “hate” that I have occasionally used while discussing Mr. Gore, it was used in this context, “many people love to hate Al Gore”. This is not a reference to my own state of mind regarding Al Gore, rather, it is pointing out that many people have such great disdain for Gore (understandably so) that they completely ignore the planetary meltdown as a knee jerk reaction. Unfortunately, such a reaction is not rational.

    • Steven Chamberlain says:

      Johnathan, yes hate is a strong word, but I still love to hate Al Gore. No ignorance or knee jerk reactions on my part. Just pure hatred for pure evil. To be honest, knowing what we know about him I don't understand how anyone could feel differently.  

    • Dennie says:

      At least with "hate," you actually STILL HAVE feelings–!!! 

      Many grown-ups finally figure out that the worst monsters on this planet are what they are because they're DEVOID of feelings.  And since we're on the subject, the opposite of hate is NOT love– it is NO feelings at all, whatsoever!!!! 

      Now think how many have been killed in cold blooded absence of feeling.  I am especially thinking of the unmentioned Holocaust of the First Nations peoples in the Americas….

      And may I now tactfully point out how MANY "love" to throw around The L Word, "L-O-V-E."  They LOVE chocolate, they LOVE this and they LOVE that– hmmm… "love.." hmmmmmm… LOVE, it's a feeling!!!  For too many it's just a superficial feeling and they "love" everything.  Except doing what it takes to really love one another on a basic human level.  That is a VERB, too.  

    • Paul Vonharnish says:

      Hello Jonathan Leitch:  I'd have to agree with Dennie's excellent comment regarding the contrasts of hate and apathy.  I'd rather have someone hate me than stare back at me with a totally blank and clueless expression… Where's the message when the protagonist is about as animated as a fence post?

      All features of human emotion are potentially creative and available for valid reasons…This quote from Kathleen Dixion is about as succinct as it gets. >

      I would hate to get caught hating someone because they said something true 

      – Kathleen Dixion –

      Emotions like "love" are useless neuronal messengers.  That is:  Love is not functional until one acts upon it… Too bad our media and "educational" systems (like Face Book) failed to nullify my opinions…

    • Jonathan Leitch says:

      Point taken. At least Dane cleared answered my question and made clear that he does not personally hate Mr. Gore.

  10. Sandy Patrus says:

    Great report Dane.  I have been commenting on how blue our skies have been here for the last several weeks, and because they were not spraying our skies we actually had some normal weather.  We got real rain clouds one day and it rained for a day and a half.  With the severe drought we have here in the southwest this rain was very much welcomed, but still not enough.  If anyone thinks this drought is all part of a normal weather pattern they are wrong…this is beyond normal.  In my HOA we had to install drip systems throughout the neighborhood just to keep our trees from dying…I have never seen so many pine needles on the ground since I moved here.

  11. V. Susan Ferguson says:

    VSF:  The Sun is shining today and I was in my car for a few moment to notice – much to my horror – the tiny white dust every where inside the car, on the dashboard, console, etc.  I am absolutely certain that part of the geoengineering using these sprayed nano-particles is to render the population passive (lithium), with loss of memory (aluminum), cognitive dysfunction and worse.
    This video link was on Seemorerocks. It is graphic, gruesome, and shows what will likely happen when electricity, food and water are no longer available.  This is why Dane is so adamant in his relentless tireless effort to warn people what we are facing — and soon. Not for the faint of heart.

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      VSF, I don't mind telling you and others, that video you posted was very hard to watch. Well produced I might add. Interesting how it took place one year "after" the power got shut off. I always read the credits. At the end of the credits rolling up the screen was a note that the video production was inspired by "Guy McPherson" and some BS he wrote. Personally, I am developing a serious dislike for that 'person'. All of my comments on his youtube videos have been deleted quickly. I very much dislike the gloom and doom and "lay down and take it" attitude he professes. In my neck of the woods we have a term for folks like that, "chicken shit". I often wonder how much money it takes to shut down the voice of someone that could have made a difference. With the cowerdous actions being displayed by folks like McPherson, Sheeple will never wake up in time. I believe that "5G" is the underlying backdrop in regards to "what happened to "all the people" in the video. Lots to think about there……..

      Again, that was a tough video to watch, especially during morning coffee time.

    • Paul Vonharnish says:

      I agree with 'a' simple horseman.  In addition, I think Guy McPherson is a paid operative… His dooms-day message is designed to paralyze the audience, rather than motivate collective actions toward potential resolution.

      If one examines the premise of any conventional prophet or prophecy, future scenarios always wax negative. As sentient humans, past experience is the only quantity we can rely on as our current point of reference. Contrast that with an unknown future or data base, and the mind reacts in fear of the unknown quantity.

      Fear is a constructive natural process, yet people get confused about it's creative function. If you're walking toward a cliff, do you just continue walking as if gravity is irrelevant? When your data base is so narrow it negates the reality of gravity, the Universe will inform you of your error in no time at all…

      I have serious issues with the proliferation of such gruesome films as A Clockwork Orange, and negative Biblical themes in general. My mind is such that I try to resolve potential problems before those potentials come to visit.

      The Judaeo Christian Bible and modern subsidized film media would have us walk off the proverbial cliff, rather than change our way of thinking as responsible sentient beings…

  12. simone says:

    Almost everyone I know (I personally know hundreds of people +some thousands online) ARE AWARE of how  "funny" the sky looks… they suffer "allergies", "flu"  and fuzziness in brains, even connecting these problems with the latest "pollutions" and "spraying".  THEY ARE VERY CONFUSED AND NEED EXAMPLES IN WHAT TO DO in their personal life,  WITHOUT GETTING INVOLVED in fights.

    I so wish to see Thousands marching everywhere and screaming:  STOP GEOENGINEERING OUR PLANET NOW

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello, Mellisa, yes, the “solar minimum” narrative is (not surprisingly) being used to confuse and divide the population in regard to the true state of the global climate and unfolding planetary meltdown. The attached link will provide hard facts and statistics which make clear that the “solar minimum” narrative is simply (as you already stated) another lie to coverup geoengineering.

    • Pedro says:

      Hello All.

      And people still do not understand the connection between the spraying in the atmosphere and the die off of all insects. Of course not, the majority don't know the trails they see in the air are made of toxic aerosols. The aerosols together with the implementation of the 4G which happened in 2010, 2011 (in my region, Iberian peninsula, in 2011), are killing all little creatures. Besides the known toxicity of the aerosols which are composed by heavy metals and other toxic elements, also organophosphates are present at least in the lubricants which are burned in the jet engines. Now with the insane increase of air traffic (because of the subsidies for the companies that lead to cheap flying for tourists, and because of climate engineering),  a very significant increase of these pollutants are being released into the high atmosphere.

    • V. Susan Ferguson says:

      VSF:  Seemorerocks in New Zealand has posted a report on Dane stating he resonates with much of what Dane says. He includes the June 9, 2018 New Alert and lots more. YAY!
      Seemorerocks:  Geoengineering is usually a topic that I try to avoid like the plague largely on the grounds that it is has usually been a method for people who are essentially climate change deniers to distract and say "look here, don't look there".  In other words it can be a fine method from distracting people from the responsibility of the oil companies (who have known about this for longer than anyone else) and of industrial civilisation (as a heat engine) as a whole. I have therefore quite aggressively deflected attempts to introduce this into the narrative for that reason.  For that reason alone.
      I have never totally denied that some form of geoengineering is going on and the devastating fires in Northern California and the strange way in which they destroyed homes whole leaving vegetation largely intact persuaded me that something in addition to climate change as it is most commonly described is indeed happening
      The other day my trusted friend, Juanita, pointed me to Dane Wigington's Geoengineering Watch.  Out of respect for her I decided to have a look. I had a listen and found to my surprise that Dane is in fact talking about many of the things I am talking about on my blog, including on the nature of geopolitics and US imperialism. Indeed there was a congruence in what he is saying that I would be hard-pressed to ignore. …
      Much of what Dane Wigington says I would have to say I agree with.
      I do not have the time or the mental energy to go deeply into the evidence he presents, but I have seen enough to convince me that some form of weather modification is going on. The changes that I have observed, the disappearance of the pristine blue skies we used to get in New Zealand, the solid banks of cloud day-after-day, week-after-week, the whiplash weather – have certainly demonstrated to me that the climate is changing far, far more rapidly than anyone (bar very few) are willing to admit.
      As Dane Wigington says "no ifs, may be's or perhaps, …" – it's happening NOW and it's happening quickly.

    • izzy says:

      Well, McPherson obviously won’t be much help with the geoengineering problem, but he correctly identifies a lot of other world-eroding dynamics that are also pushing things rapidly towards a very unfortunate climax. Considering how much bad news there is to ingest, the need to engage in all the intramural squabbling over various details only reinforces a sense that these mega-issues are simply unresolvable, even if we had the time.

    Hello all:  The conventions of modern economics have forced me to repair the engine of my car, which had exploded and caught fire back in January.  Seems General Motors "forgot" how to build real cars some time ago, and the wonders of plastic engine parts now cause many thousands of total loss auto fires every year.  Way to go guys and gals!!!  Real goddam exceptional of ya… I digress…

    New torture:  "Sun boarding"  That is:  1.) Strip the shirts off all academics, voodoo scientists, media hoods, and other puke sacks like the one's who sign up for payable opportunities to become military cowards and baldfaced liars.  2.) Strap them down (hard) to the hoods of their own cars on bright cloudless days.  3.) Let the raging UV and silky warm sunlight sink in until the skin burns right off their sorry bones.  Maybe that'll encourage a little truth outta the rest of our collective souls…

    When chrome tools get so hot in the sun ya can't even pick them up (much less hold onto them) it's hard to blame it all on Al Gore…..

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      Paul, thanks for a good chuckle. I needed it today. Who'd says truths can't be laid out with pointed humor? George Carlin made a career out of it. I kind of wish I had the knack for it. These days, I don't care as long as it's real and it's honest. Time is running out and "political correctness" has only moved us backward.

      Your right about modern cars and trucks I might add. To much plastic for the job they are supposed to do. I too have had my tools get to hot to hold on to. Sad that I must make a habit of keeping them in the shade. It's not always the most convenient thing to do.

    NEXUS: Why isn’t anyone talking about the Israeli military coming to Alaska?
    Israel will be testing their Arrow 3 weapons system from the island of Kodiak, just off the coast of Alaska.  62 shipping containers that have been renovated into sleeping quarters for the Israeli troops and have already been shipped to the Pacific Spaceport Complex-Alaska, where the missile tests will take place. Yet, we’ve heard nothing on mainstream media about foreign troops coming to train on American soil.  The secret behind military operations and missile launches is the pollution left behind, mainly from the toxic rocket fuel.  That fuel is difficult to transport, ship, store, use, and to clean up. Kodiak is still being cleaned up from the mess made back during WW2! The Pentagon has already admitted that it can not be cleaned up completely. …
    The reason given for Israel to begin testing their missiles (funded and developed by both Israel and America) is that the Arrow 3 interceptor is an exoatmospheric missile.  The missile literally flies into space and comes back to crash on Earth’s surface. Being that the Mediterranean Sea is too small an area to test such a missile, they somehow managed to squeeze their way into pristine Alaskan territory. The question then would be asked, who is Israel targeting? Why do they need missiles to go above and beyond the Mediterranean Sea?
    The land provided for the Israeli military on Kodiak Island at the Pacific Spaceport Complex is public land leased from the State of Alaska and is not federal land, where most all other US Department of Defense test sites are located. This should obligate the DOD and the Alaska Aerospace Corporation to be better stewards of the land but it doesn’t seem to be working out that way.  Further, there seems to be little to no control over any of the development by either the local Kodiak Island Borough or the state. Normal zoning codes have not been applied by the local government and no taxes have been levied.

      WHAT?! IN KODIAK ISLAND?!

      MFS!!!

    • Bella_Fantasia says:

      Thank you, Susan, I had just seen this reported at Globalresearch.ca.  It is not even being reported in Alaska, except maybe on Kodiak.  Last summer 2017 we had the massive Northern Edge war games, where the Navy allows itself to disrupt or kill 185,000 living creatures, NOT counting the fish. This is when the SALMON return up through the Gulf.

      "The Navy’s EIS does estimate that, during the years in which these war games are to be conducted [every other year], there will be more than 182,000 “takes” — direct deaths of marine mammals or disruptions of their essential behaviors like breeding, nursing, or surfacing. On fish deaths, it offers no estimates at all."

      After those 'fun and games' in 2015 came the largest whale mortality event the Gulf of Alaska had ever suffered.

      "As the May 1st launching day for NE 17 looms, we already have at least some inkling of just what kinds of damage might result. Immediately following Northern Edge 15, Alaska witnessed the single largest whale mortality event ever to occur in its waters. Eighteen carcasses of endangered whales were found floating near Kodiak Island within the area in which the Navy had conducted its exercises, attracting national media attention."

      "And call it irony or call it American life in 2017, but the US military’s Alaska Command has branded Emily Stolarcyk “a troublemaker” for insistently pointing this out. In a state where such a phrase is the equivalent of an obscenity, some have bluntly called her “anti-military.” The office of Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski has termed her a “rabble-rouser,” while a Kodiak Assembly member labeled some of what she’s been saying about the Navy “just silly.”

      "As a resident of the tiny fishing town of Cordova, Alaska, the most radical rabble-rousing thing about Stolarcyk [Emily Stolarcyk of the Eyak Preservation Council] may be the passion with which she loves this region of the planet in all its majesty. It’s why she’s taken a fierce and unwavering stand for years now against the ongoing training exercises the Navy carries out in the Gulf of Alaska DURING ONE OF THE LARGEST MIGRATIONS OF BIRDS AND MARINE LIFE ON EARTH. These exercises, which inject tons of toxic materials into the Gulf and use significant explosive ordnance, are once again scheduled to take place just as Alaska’s commercial fishing season opens."

      AND NOW THE CREATURES OF THE GULF CANNOT EVEN GET A YEAR OFF BECAUSE THE ISRAELIS NEED TO WAR GAME THE GULF?  I'm beside myself with grief.

      Susan and ALL, I have always found it interesting that the Governor of Alaska has higher security clearance than the President. That fact came out during the Sarah Palin days. I've also found it appalling that "the white man" has always gone in for big money and then got out, when it comes to Alaska. The term "rape" comes to mind. It says a lot about modern society. Several well known fictional authors have chronicled it over the last hundred years.

      Susan, NOOOO!  We Must stop this!  How?  Media, massive media.  I've figured out the whole of it with Israel and have a lot to say, wanted to run it by you as I'm not sure where to take what I've learned, but if I've learned it, others Must know.  Yet I did not find out about This, but it figures and fits.  Bella, Steve Chamberlain, and who else do we know up there, Blue Sue?  Where is Blue Sue?  Trump is The Master of distraction.  While Everyone is focused on Mexican border, This! sneaks by.  We can't seem to control our own Navy, but I feel a little bit sure that if All knew about Israel and this hideous plan there would be a hue and cry from the States, especially given what I've learned.  No time to waste but I do have an appointment.  As soon as I get home, I'll be calling Every government person I can think of.  For starters.  And run by what I've figured out to see what you and others can make of it.  This, though, DOES take the cake!  Damn!   and thanks?!!!!!!

      Thing is @Susan, this is even worse than what they leave behind and cause on ground and sea.  This empowers Israel and Israel had gone insane, rather more insane than ever.  There is an overarching plan and it ain't good.  This must be stopped, at all costs.  Please, Everyone, call your Congress peoples, call media, get word out as fast as possible!

      Susan, this is beyond disturbing, beyond insane, but not beyond what our asinine government and Alaska's profiteering politicians can pull off.  The idea of Israeli troops here in Alaska gives me shivers.  Certainly no good will come of this!  But with the caliber of corporate crony politicians we have here in Alaska, it's not too surprising.  Why hasn't this been all over the media, as is should be?  That's not hard to figure out.  I've been reading a book called The Controversy of Zion (written in 1956 but published in 1978) that speaks to the why. 

      After searching for recent news coverage of this shocking military development in Kodiak, the only local articles I could find online were archived from June of last year.  https://www.ktoo.org/2017/06/08/kodiak-host-test-israeli-interceptor-missile/ 

      and several others in Israel's media. https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/89485/israel-test-arrow-3-first-time-outside-israel-alaska/

      Susan, one link you provided led me to another and I came across this article on the Navy's growler noise in your area and was wondering if it has gotten worse.  You may know the women quoted here?  My sympathy for your suffering. Although we don't have your chronic growler traffic polluting our lives, I do cringe each and every time I hear the sound of a jet flying overhead (almost every day and night) knowing the toxins they are dispersing up above.  Our weather here in Alaska has been abnormal like everywhere else.  The entire month of May was "overcast" and unusually cool.  June hasn't warmed up much at all, many cloudy days staying only in the 50's (should be 65-75) and also very high winds the past several days.  We finally got a righteous rain the other day instead of the toxic piddly drizzle that typical falls.  I'm praying for some more sunshine.  We Alaskans really crave it this time of year!

      All, Well, maybe we should calm down, I did.  Not for awhile though as it amped my general distress lately.  This launch site is a bit of a joke, launch site wise, and there are so very many.  Formerly Kodiak Launch Complex it now goes by PSCA: Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska.  It is in the main a commercial enterprise.  And a bit desperate for business. It has had maybe more than its fair share of failures, hoping to turn that around.  Run by a state corporation located in Anchorage, and operated by AAC: Alaska Areospace Co.  And I did not know that Kodiak Island is the top of a volcano!!  Lately they've had to cancel planned stuff, have been trying to get back to business since 2016, now attracting a few like Arizona's Vector, planning something orbital.  It does not seem as if it could possibly do something so grand.  I've looked nearly every where every which way and did come up with Israel's Arrow 3 Weapons System, but only in reference to Israel's antiballistic effort there, new, intercepted a surface to air missile fired supposedly from Southern Syria and brought it down. This system as far as this information says, orbital only.  Zip nada about Alaska.  So, I am glad I did not call everyone, wanting first to see what I could find and verify.  If there is more information, some good sources?  Nothing seems to reflect this, even as a far out possibility.  Apparently, independent launch sites are all the rage now as everyone wants lots of do-dads up in space, Everyone.  However, one of these companies sounds a bit ominous: Astra, located right here in Alameda, CA–I am in Alameda County.  Previously known as Ventions, they worked on propulsion and other technologies under contract with NASA and DARPA. before reforming as Astra Space in 2016.  The chief executive there is a former NASA chief technical officer.  They have a 12 meter rocket called Astara, "capable of putting 100 K–well damn, I can't make out my note of this word nor even guess at it now!  My handwriting is horrible due to many injuries and RA, still, this the One word I can't make out!  Sorry. Will have to look it up again but did not sound important but confusing when I read it and it was followed by: "into low earth orbit according to the presentation"–think a la the one Trump put together for Kim, I'm guessing.  Dang, suppose I will find that word, not sure which site.  I could try their web site: akaerospace.com  I'm just gonna breathe now.

      Like many other critical thinkers, I’d have to agree with Kim Jong regarding the mental capacities of Mr. Trump. Terrorism is terrorism, and suicide is suicide. If any civilian in the civilized world threatened to blow an area the size of New Mexico off the world map using nuclear weapons, they’d be hauled away in a strait jacket or hearse within hours.

      Yet our (bought and paid for) media approves of the redundant and dangerous rhetoric engendered by persons such Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.

    Currently, appreciable amounts of radioactive and dangerous chemicals are accumulated all over the world.
    http://www.osha.gov/index.html
    These compounds belong to a wide class of physiologically active materials (PAMS), which produce strong toxic effect on human beings and environment.  In the case of emergencies, PAM emission or leakage may pose the threat of contaminating large territories resulting in mass damage to people and enormous ecological damage to the environment …
    There is a high probability of emergency releases and leakages of strongly toxic molecular compounds and aerosols formed during the course of nuclear fuel reprocessing and recovery of stocks of radioactive, highly toxic, and poisonous materials.
    List of industries that pose a real hazard to environment (& not at all a complete list of compounds that can enter into the composition of emergency releases on production facilities).
    [excerpts]:
    1. Chemical industry: Nitrogen oxides, phosphorous fluoride, ammonia, acids, fluorine & chlorine containing compounds, carbon oxides, sulphur oxides, organophosphorous compounds, extremely toxic dioxine and methylisocyanate, sarin, etc.
    2. Atomic industry (including radiochemical facilities): Tributyl phosphate, uranium sulphate, nitrate or phosphoric sulphate compounds etc., organic-extraction agents, nitric-acid compounds containing uranium, plutonium, other actinides, and fission products, fluorides as halogens, aerosols with inclusions of components of borosilicate and phosphatic glass used in vitrification of highly active nuclear wastes; interaction products of one of the most hazardous ingredients of emergency releases, volatile uranium hexafluoride. With atmospheric water vapors, organic compounds, etc.
    3. Electronic industry: Volatile inorganic fluorides and hydrides of elements … which have found wide practical application in the production of elementary substances in an exceptionally high-purity state for synthesis of optical materials, growing of semiconductor epitaxial structures, etc.

    We know for sure how toxic the rain can be.  Just a few weeks ago, after an exposure of a few minutes to the rain in Anchorage, I suffered a 'virus' that lasted 12 days.  Thought I might have a strep throat (or E Coli exposure) or pneumonia requiring an antibiotic (which I take very rarely).  Felt so weak and suffocated I was given an inhaler, even though my breathing and heart are usually fine.

    Caught in the rain again for 15 minutes yesterday waiting for a bus, today I'm resting and trying to fight the adverse effects I felt again this morning.

    Everyone complains about allergies or the dryness.  I try to tell them there's a lot crap in the air besides the usual crap.  Most agree, but they've actually said they don't really want to know.

    When I first came to Alaska in 1982, there was still some unreliable ice on the ponds in mid-May.  People who had been here longer than that have said it used to be colder decades earlier. But, hey, those people are old! so they probably are not remembering correctly.  We all have dementia now (not really).  Meanwhile the weather reporters get away with saying we're having 'glorious summer days' (not really) even as it's still officially spring.  Last fall it was already 'winter' in November.  For starters, nobody seems to even notice the obvious lies about which season it actually is.

    Earth Will Survive. We May Not.
    By Adam Frank / June 12, 2018 / NY Times
    Dr. Frank is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Rochester.

    The biosphere is a cosmic power in its own right. It’s a planetary force that channels vast energies flowing from the sun and transforms them into ceaseless rounds of blind evolutionary innovation. That power gives Earth and its biosphere a long-term resilience we must now fully imagine if we are to come to terms with the climate change we are driving.
    We speak of “saving” the Earth as if it were a little bunny in need of help. We show images of gaunt polar bears on melting ice floes to elicit guilt and environmental action. But those images and stories blind us to the reality of this remarkable moment in Earth’s history.
    Our planet does not need our saving. The biosphere has endured cataclysms far worse than us — and after millions of years thrived again.  Even the Earth’s five fearsome mass extinctions became opportunities for the biosphere’s creativity, driving new rounds of evolutionary experiments. That, after all, is how we big-brained mammals ended up dominating the Earth rather than our dinosaur predecessors. As the great biologist Lynn Margulis once put it, “Gaia is a tough bitch.” In the long term, the biosphere will handle pretty much anything we throw at it, including climate change.
    What Earth’s history does make clear, however, is that if we don’t take the right kind of action soon the biosphere will simply move on without us, creating new versions of itself in the changing climate we’re generating now. So we must be honest. The problem is not saving the Earth or life writ large, but saving our cherished civilization. From that perspective the nature of our choices changes significantly. …
    This recognition — that in the long term the Earth will abide without us — does not absolve us from the need for urgent action. It is not an excuse for climate denial or ecological hooliganism. It also does not mean we are free to just impose suffering on Earth’s other creatures. Instead, it’s an acknowledgment of the true scale of our planetary responsibilities. It means we must become the agent for something the Earth has not seen before — a biosphere that is also awake to itself and can act for its future with both compassion and wisdom.

      There's that word again:  "resilience".  The term "resilience" is a RAND corporation inspired term – pervasive upon collage campuses, media publications, and within governmental discussions.  It is a red herring of the first degree.  An idle term that negates environmental instabilities, and replaces hard sobriety with insipid complacence.  I agree with most of what Mr. Adams points out, but he Does Not Understand the primary (and permanent) crisis this "biosphere" is facing.

      Geoengineering is causing total collapse of world food supplies – right now… As Dane has pointed out in many dozens of presentations; resources are being robbed from third world producers to feed "first world" environmental slobs and militaristic morons.  Words like "resilience" thrive as third world populations starve to death on their own streets.

      Yet starvation is not the actual crisis – it only sets the stage for an impending world-wide economic collapse.  The actual crisis is all about nuclear power and infrastructure.  Our inspired imbeciles in the military have deployed well over 20,000 armed and dangerous nuclear devices around the globe.  Academics have been so focused on terms like resiliency, they've completely negated the 450+ potential Fukushima's we've loosed upon the planet.  I guess Mr. Adams would call this "blind evolutionary innovation". >>>>>

      Economic collapse will certainly not provide a systematic method to secure our nuclear "innovations".  The biosphere will not survive a nuclear holocaust.  A radioactive blob of dead stone with no atmosphere will have zero "resiliency".  You can count on it.  Ya don't even have to be an astrophysicist…

      Hi frances, venus had an atmosphere and they call it "venus syndrom". they do not know the cause of the heating up, no humans, but the atmosphere heats up and expands past the point of gravity being able to keep the atmosphere around the planet. some molecules go out into space, which causes more heating which causes more expansion of the atmosphere…a positive feedback loop and now venus has no atmosphere and is lifeless.

      Universe Today:  Astronomers think that there are hundreds of billions galaxies in the universe, however the exact number is not known. But astronomers should know how many galaxies we’ve actually seen and discovered, right? Well, not necessarily. “We don’t know,” says Ed Churchwell, professor of astronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “We know it’s a very large number.” In just one image for example, the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, above, there are about 10,000 galaxies visible. In our own galaxy, There are between 100-300 billion stars in the Milky Way. At most, 8,479 of them are visible from Earth. Roughly 2,500 stars are available to the unaided eye in ideal conditions from a single spot at a given time.  But the number of galaxies will keep growing as our telescopes get better and can look out and back farther in time.

      Venus has an atmosphere alright; it’s just not breathable by humans. 

      Venus is a terrestrial planet and is sometimes called Earth's "sister planet" because of their similar size, mass, proximity to the Sun, and bulk composition. It is radically different from Earth in other respects. It has the densest atmosphere of the four terrestrial planets, consisting of more than 96% carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth, or roughly the pressure found 900 m (3,000 ft) underwater on Earth. Venus is by far the hottest planet in the Solar System, with a mean surface temperature of 735 K (462 °C; 863 °F), even though Mercury is closer to the Sun. Venus is shrouded by an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulfuric acid, preventing its surface from being seen from space in visible light. It may have had water oceans in the past,[16][17] but these would have vaporized as the temperature rose due to a runaway greenhouse effect.[18] The water has probably photodissociated, and the free hydrogen has been swept into interplanetary space by the solar wind because of the lack of a planetary magnetic field.[19] Venus's surface is a dry desertscape interspersed with slab-like rocks and is periodically resurfaced by volcanism.

    I also shared your history, your dad was an arborist, etc. and gave your site info if folks on that site want to check facts to make a case for argument to defend the trees. I brought up two items to them that I did not investigate but like I say trees have been on my mind. I may grow seedlings for people I know. One arguement was that trees particularly grouped together create a buffer zone under the canopy of cool or cooler temp air that if sunlight hits the top of trees it will not create much heat vs. grass, bare soil and rock. two, that trees are "dust catchers" and bring particles and particulates down to the ground because trees block wind horizontal to the ground and I would say from the top down to the ground. this is good because, as pollution and spray particles exponentiate in number that it will not make it to the ozone layer and unless the wind is bad, won't be able to blow in around in the breathable air column. what do you think about this?

    Hi Dane,

    thank you for today's show. trees have been the focus for me lately. One, because a beautiful pine, rigorous, full of health, huge has been cut down. grief is also coming from a local group trying to desparately save Oakland hills trees from being cut down, brush cleared or glyphosated all in the watershed. I am sharing this because, it may be a good point to raise with people. as you look out your window or out your door, notice the tree tops you see over the houses and buildings. How many are living, how many dead ones? Keep track of how many you see, what kind, their health and notice if any are missing. as we all know, the effects of the tearing down of the amazon have been devasting on all the earth. so what makes people think that clearing the east bay hills is any different? Mcdonalds is still open as you say. People need to know that for every tree that disappears how much harder it will be to breathe, how much hotter it will be, etc. they need to notice…they need to notice the dying. I know you have talked about the trees dying before but maybe challenging people to do a mental picture and make them notice the disappearance by asking them to also mentally note, the healthy ones, not so much, dead ones and the ones that are one day gone, how many birds, songbirds, big birds, bees there are. challenge them to do a quick summary every day. they can't help but notice the die off/or foolishly chopping down of them. It also will bring home that this is not happening in some far off place called "away". It is happening in their own backyard, their street.

      Jeanette, Even though I live in Berkeley, I'd not know of this if not for you!  It occurs to me to ask if you were here for the 1991 'Oakland Hills' fire?  Some of that was in Berkeley hills too, which is why they now look bare.  That fire was horrifying for a number of reasons, one of which was how difficult to access, given narrow winding roads, another reason was how very fast it moved.  Mega big money up there–the preferred place to live for the wealthy.  Many still remember.  I remember that we did not used to have wind much at all, but winds were a factor in that fire, plus the fact that we get no rain for half the year or more.  I've been here more than 4 decades and come from tornado alley and I love wind!  Or did.  Decade after decade of virtually no wind was the one thing I really missed, I used to even complain about lack of wind. Now we are having a lot of wind a lot of the time.  It is obvious how hard the wind is on plants here, sucks the moisture and life right outta them. Did you notice, read how badly insurance companies are screwing people who lost their homes last year in Sonoma county?  All just to say that it would seem that people are afraid of loosing ultra pricey homes and the revenue they bring to the city.  Not that that makes it right.  People are also expecting another Big Earthquake like we had in '89. Wouldn't want a big healthy tree falling on someone's precious home.  Or so I'm guessing and viewing from insurance and city resources point of view.  Not that that helps us tree lovers!  Must say, Berkeley is dense with trees.  But no longer on hills.

    Dear Dane- I listened to your entire Broadcast today-as well I spoke directly with Maciej today, ( I will speak with you again via e-mail after I gather some colleagues as time is short and we must mobilize the public

    I am convinced about  a boycott of the airlines, they are all engaged in assisting the various agencies deliver these toxic metals-

    I am at your service sir:

    My 222nd email, titled 'Third Time Lucky?'.

    1. Summer solstice 2018 is nearly upon us and I thought it time to do another review of the Malcolm Light et al 'Global Omnicide between 2023 and 2031' chart of Oct 2016: http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/p/warning-global-omnicide.html 

    Storms increasing in intensity – yes; Coral death started – yes; About half way through widespread deglaciation – yes; Methane average 1880ppb – probably, if one allows for the lies about reported methane levels…peaks are over 2350ppb almost daily.

    So, on average we are still on schedule. 

    What have we to look forward to: Possible 7 meter sea level rise by mid 2021; Probable zero Arctic sea ice by 2022; Major crop failures in mid latitudes by 2023; Global atmospheric heating controlled by Arctic methane releases by mid 2023 (one can argue, assuming cloudless nights, the atmosphere will lose it's heat every night, but methane release combined with heat release from the worlds oceans will cause the day temps to soar).

    The five ocean hot spots have cooled down to @ 29C. There is a lot of water vapour up there for severe weather…and geoengineering/weather warfare.

    2. Third time lucky? Confirmed reports show that US Special Forces/CIA operatives have nearly finished their training, supply and rehearsals for another false flag chemical attack in Syria, probably in Deir ez-Zur area. Will Trump launch a simultaneous missile attack this time, or will US troops be affected/killed – thus giving the classic false flag reason to launch a major attack? The US has resumed funding of the "White Helmets" terrorist group. 

    3.  Notes to Self (week 75 of 104).  UVC rays are 280nm and shorter and generally will not penetrate our layer of dead skin – but when they do, can cause serious damage and cell mutations. Infrared waves are between 760nm and 1mm and account for about half of the solar energy reaching earth's surface – it is a heat energy that raises the temperature of whatever it hits…skin can get to over 40C. Studies about the damaging effects of infrared on our skin has been hidden for decades.

    In the old days we had a saying that temperature drops by 1C per 100m increase in altitude…current surface air temp over central Greenland is  -24C and at 110m (1000hPa) is -2C; over Scotland 8C vs 11C; over Siberia 28C vs 28C; over the North Pole 0C vs 0C. It gets colder by the time you reach 1500m (850 hPa).

    Have you arranged a solstice party and got your "Party Piece" ready? Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yh3ml8gzrd4 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9Ht1q9psfY …and of course https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBYVmnMFMtA

      Andrew, my friend and fellow Scotsman that I have not met yet,

      Thank you……

      That was quite the video montage you contributed. I especially enjoyed the Edinburgh video though I am a huge fan of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. I watched that Edinburgh video twice. Once for enjoyment and twice to witness the discipline of each and every performer. I strive for the same among folks like you and I, even though we are half a world apart. Those of us that are truly laying some rubber down on the road 'and' getting some traction, know who we are. Matters not the medium. Hmm, "75 of 104". Interesting how I have counted down the ticks with you since you first wrote of the "1 of 104". I find it hard to disagree and or turn a blind eye to, how accurate your count has become. "Big boots will fall soon". I have that by good authority.

      Love and strength to you Andrew

      Yes!  Thanks Andrew.  Question…after Nitty Gritty band, did you put in Bruno Mar's Uptown Funk or You Tube just Knows me?!!  I love it when I can dance for minutes in a row!!  So fun and I needed that.  And sometimes a push!
