Monumental Earth Changes: Cost of Disasters Tripled in 2010!

The global cost of natural and man-made disasters more than tripled in 2010 to $218 billion (154 billion euros), reinsurer Swiss Re said Tuesday, with the human toll the highest for decades.

FRINGE: Symbolism of Convergence - Weak Points and Gravitational Singularities. Scientists Stunned by Giant Whirlpools in the Ocean?!

Several weeks ago, following the devastating mega-earthquake and resultant tsunami that hit off the coast of Japan, I highlighted the news about a giant whirlpool that was seen near Qarai City in Ibaraki Prefecture in northeastern Japan.

I wrote:

"A swirling vortex, that lasted for hours, sucking up everything in its path, including houses, ships, cars and farm buildings. According to Michio Kaku, the theoretical physicist, the whirlpool was caused by the sudden uplift of the Earth's crust, a rupture ranging for hundreds of miles that created colliding waves. He also believes that the crack in the Earth's crust, also caused the water to swirl into a vortex, descending and funneling like a drain."

In the article I also draw reference to the symbolism seen in the Fox television series Fringe:

" episode 8, entitled Entrada, of season three,... we see the combination of both of these theories of a man-made event and a convergence with a parallel world, being played out in the mythological archetypes narrative of the series.

Giant vortex seen in Fringe.

In Fringe, an FBI team investigates mysteries associated with the unexplained and shocking occurrences associated with a breach of a parallel universe. An incursion that was created by one member of that team, Walter Bishop, the unorthodox archetypal mad scientist, who steals another boy from the alternate world to replace his dead son. A move that resulted in a chain reaction, causing various weather anomalies in the other world. In the episode, there is a scene in a busy Manhattan bar, where a television clip shows a giant vortex appearing in the middle of the East River. A vortex that created so much cataclysm chaos and havoc, that the authorities in this parallel world had to quarantine half of the city into a confined and secluded amber-like zone, where people are trapped inside. In addition to people, the incursion by Bishop also led to the deaths of animals and plant life.

I ask the following question: if we are to see the occult presentations and the subtextual narrative from Hollywood as part of a predictive programming or foreshadowing, is it right to infer that the vortex is an indication of this convergence between both worlds? Is it safe to assume that we are also witnessing one here on Earth, given the recent mass animal die-off across the planet and the whirlpool that was seen following the earthquake in Japan.

It should be noted that the word "entrada" is Spanish, and translates into English as any of the following words: entry, entrance, input, access, gateway, and portal. Is it possible that in addition to the man-made weather manipulation, some form of planetary object or dwarf star co-orbiting in a perpetual binary entanglement with our Sun, is having this cataclysmic effect on our planet as it makes it's entrance or entrada through the diffuse edges of the Oort clouds and into our Solar System, altering the Earth's gravity plane, magnetic field and eventually plunging us towards a geological pole shift and a possible mass extinction?"

Today, Anton Yevseyev of the Internet-based Russian newspaper, Pravda Online, published a report that provides additional material to this story and perhaps more evidence of the convergence of worlds and how our planet will continue to undergo geological upheavals as the weak points expand resulting in increased weather anomalies on the Earth. Or as they are referred to in the sci-fi series - gravitational singularities - the disintegration or dismantling of the known laws of the universe.

US scientists discovered two giant whirlpools in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Guyana and Suriname. It became a sensational discovery because this part of the ocean has been studied thoroughly, and no one expected anything like that to appear in the area. More importantly, no one can understand where the whirlpools came from and what surprises they may bring to people. According to Brazilian scientist Guilherme Castellane, the two funnels are approximately 400 kilometers in diameter. Until now, these were not known on Earth. The funnels reportedly exert a strong influence on climate changes that have been registered during the recent years. "Funnels rotate clockwise. They are moving in the ocean like giant frisbees, two discs thrown into the air. Rotation occurs at a rate of one meter per second, the speed is sufficiently large compared to the speed of oceanic currents, on the border hoppers is a wave-step height of 40 cm," Castellane said. Even during the dry months, when the movement of oceanic currents and the flow of the Amazon River practically comes to a standstill, the funnels do not disappear. Therefore, the nature of the funnels does not depend on the flow of water, which one of the world's biggest rivers brings into the ocean. The natural phenomenon, which creates the whirlpools, is unknown to modern science. As a matter of fact, the phenomenon of giant whirlpools in the World Ocean is not new to science. In most cases, the craters, or rings, as scientists call them, are formed as a result of so-called vertical currents. The latter, in their turn, appear because of differences in water density which appear because of difference in temperatures of water layers. It is an open secret that cold water is thicker and heavier, so it goes down, underneath the masses of warm water, which is lighter. This is the reason why warm currents in the World Ocean always flow closer to the surface, whereas colder currents flow closer to the bottom. However, such movement of water may not always depend on the difference of temperatures of the water column. The difference in salinity can also be a reason. The mechanism here is the same. The density of saltier water is higher, this water is heavier and it moves closer to the bottom, pushing less saltier water up. This type of vertical fusion occurs frequently in the tropics because high temperatures lead to the evaporation of water from the surface. The salt does not evaporate with water, though. It stays in the ocean, which raises the level of salinity on the upper layer of water. This layer "drowns" and gives way to less saltier waters of the depth. Such vertical movements of water create giant whirlpools. The whirlpools, tens and even hundreds of kilometers in diameter, may last for months and even years, scientists say. The vertical movement of waters is a slow process, though. Why do those whirlpools exist for such a long time? This is partially the effect of Earth's magnetic field. In addition, marine water contains many charged ions, Na and Cl for example. To crown it all, water molecules are dipoles that are charged both positively and negatively. Any dipole starts spinning when moving in the magnetic field. An oceanic ring gathers millions of billions of molecules together. That is why the giant circle movement triggered by the vertical movement of water may last for months and years mechanically. Ions also give more power to the craters. Natrium and Chlorum are charged as well, and their movement in the magnetic field of the Earth also leads to the appearance of the circle movement. It is not ruled out that the reason for the appearance of the whirlpools off the coast of South America is the same as in other parts of the World Ocean. Scientists are currently studying the influence of those giant funnels on the climate of Latin America and Africa. Such whirlpools show influence on the atmosphere and form cyclonical air mass. They can also affect the movement of air mass formed in other places. For the time being, scientists do not know how the newly discovered water craters can affect the climate of Central and South Americas.
Now, I am not a scientist, but according to my limited understanding, in a gravitational singularity, any form of mass can be compressed to a sufficient density, will inevitably collapse into a singularity or event horizon, such as at the beginning of the Big Bang, or the collapse of star or inside the centre of a black hole; where matter would flow into a space-time curvature, dimensions would shrink to zero, and density and gravity would become infinite. Are we witnessing something similar here, the annihilation of rationality, as worlds converge and our region of space is deformed and absorbed at the weak points of the conjunction?

If worlds, universes, planetary objects or stars are about to collide, then is it possible that this will ultimately lead to full contact with extraterrestrials or aliens, given that in Fringe, entities exist in the parallel universe, in similar planetary construct and properties as the prime universe. In a recent article in the Daily Mail, serious thought is given to this, when the question of the possibilities of aliens living on planets deep within black holes is raised to Professor Dokuchaev, from the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.

Colonies of aliens living on planets within black holes may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Some black holes have a complex internal structure that allows photons, particles and planets to orbit a central singularity, according to one scientist. A singularity is the region in a black hole when space and time become infinite. However, Professor Vyacheslav Dokuchaev claims that at the centre of certain black holes, and under the right conditions, is an area where the fabric of space and time exists once more. If a charged and rotating black hole is large enough, he said, it can weaken the tidal forces that are beyond the event horizon - the point where nothing, not even light, can escape a black hole's gravity. Scientists have long known that photons can survive in stable periodic orbits inside such charged black holes. However Professor Dokuchaev said that a black hole's inner Cauchy horizon - the area where dimensions switch back again - can also accommodate particles and even planets. These manage to exist without ever getting sucked all the way into the black hole and would derive light and heat from the orbiting protons and from the energy of the central singularity, he said... [he] speculates that these conditions could prove self-sufficient for alien life. He said: 'This internal black hole domain, hidden by two horizons from the whole external universe, is indeed a suitable place. 'Advanced civilisations may live safely inside the supermassive black holes in the galactic nuclei without being visible from the outside.' - Daily Mail.
A silly and pointless piece of fantasy, a crazy theory, theoretical physics or real science? Certainly what we have been witnessing in terms of Earth changes, weather anomalies, seismic upheavals, and mass animal die-off needs to be explain and it is quite possible that we are really experiencing something similar to gravitational singularities as our world converges with another. The evidence is mounting and must be examine thoroughly and not dismissed as just as science fiction mumbo-jumbo. Only time will tell, but hopefully the empirical evidence from the scrutiny of the scientific method will reveal if the story arc from Fringe is predictive programming and foreshadowing, or not.


Radiation Spreads Worldwide as Governments Continue to Coverup the Truth!

The radiation from the damaged nuclear plant in Japan has prompted officials to rate the disaster a “major accident” yesterday – the same as Chernobyl. After checking data on the leaks, they placed the rating from level 5 to 7. It is the highest in the International Nuclear Event Scale. The reevaluation came when aftershock quakes from the March 11 mega earthquake and tsunami shook the region. The updated data revealed considerably more radiation had leaked from the Fukushima plant in the early days of the crisis than was first thought.

Japan is to raise the nuclear alert level at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant to a maximum seven, putting the emergency on a par with the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Nuclear safety officials had insisted they had no plans to raise the severity of the crisis from five – the same level as the Three Mile Island accident in 1979 – according to the international nuclear and radiological event scale. But the government came under pressure to raise the level at the plant after Japan's nuclear safety commission estimated the amount of radioactive material released from its stricken reactors reached 10,000 terabecquerels per hour for several hours following the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the country's northeast coast on 11 March. That level of radiation constitutes a major accident, according to the INES scale. The scale, devised by the international atomic energy agency, ranks nuclear and radiological accidents and incidents by their severity from one to seven. Japan also temporarily issued tsunami warnings for parts of the north-east coast on Monday following another powerful aftershock. It is exactly a month since a magnitude-9 earthquake created huge waves that left an estimated 28,000 people dead or missing. NHK, the public broadcaster, warned of a tsunami up to 2 metres high on the coast of Ibaraki prefecture after the magnitude-7.1 quake. Although the waves were estimated to be much smaller than those that hit on 11 March, the meteorological agency warned people in Ibaraki to evacuate to higher ground. The warnings were later lifted. The aftershock came as the government said it was widening the evacuation zone around the plant due to high levels of accumulated radiation and fears about long-term effects on residents' health. A fire that broke out at the plant's number four reactor at 6.38am local time was extinguished, the operator, Tokyo Electric Power company (Tepco), said. More than 14,000 people are still missing following the disaster, and 152,000 survivors are living in evacuation centres. - The Guardian.
As sections of Japan becomes uninhabitable and the nuclear alert level rises, the Japanese government is now admitting that they had initially delayed raising the level to seven, in-order to avoid panic.
Seiji Shiroya, a commissioner of Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission, an independent government panel that oversees the country’s nuclear industry, said that the government had delayed issuing data on the extent of the radiation releases because of concern that the margins of error had been large in initial computer models. But he also suggested a public policy reason for having kept quiet. “Some foreigners fled the country even when there appeared to be little risk,” he said. “If we immediately decided to label the situation as Level 7, we could have triggered a panicked reaction.” - New York Times.
What's more, radiation readings from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has spiked sharply, following a powerful aftershock. Russia TV is reporting that 400,000 could develop cancer in 200 km radius of the Fukushima.

The effects of the radiation is already being felt in Europe and America. In European, warnings have been issued to the public to avoid drinking milk or eating vegetables due to the high radiation levels.
The radiation risk from Fukushima is "no longer negligable," says CRIIRAD, the French research authority on radioactivity. It is now warning expectant mothers and young children to avoid drinking milk or rainwater. They should also avoid certain types of vegetables and cheese due to the dangerously high levels of radiation they may contain thanks to the radioactive fallout spreading across the globe. CRIIRAD now says that eating these items qualifies as "risky behavior." - Natural News.
In America, the Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of California is now indicating that Cesium can now be found in food and plants.
We have been collecting produce that is as local as possible to test for the radioactive isotopes. We might expect different kinds of plants to take up different quantities of cesium and iodine, so we are trying to measure as many different plants and fruits as we are able to. So far, we have measured grass, wild mushrooms, spinach, strawberries, cilantro, kale, and arugula. We have also measured local topsoil.
In the following video clip, nuclear engineer, Arnie Gundersen, discusses why TEPCO's announcement of an increased accident severity level should not be a surprise. He also discusses similarities among the Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and the Fukushima nuclear accidents and how governments are once again limiting public access to accurate radiation dose information.

The numerous aftershocks seem to have complicated efforts to control the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. There have been nearly a 1,000 aftershocks,with 400 of magnitude 5 or greater in northeastern Japan since the mega earthquake on March 12. Over the last week, several magnitude 6 and over aftershocks continue to rock the eastern sections of the island, there was a 7.1 in Honshu, 6.1 in Kyushu, 6.6 in eastern Honshu, 6.2 on the east coast of Honshu, 6.0 in eastern Honshu and a 6.1 off the east coast of Honshu.

Currently TEPCO is admitting that reactor #4's fuel pool may be boiling and too hot, with the direct possibility that an enormous amount of plutonium might ignite.

Earth Changes: Freak Dust Storm Wrecks Major Havoc In Germany?!

A freak sandstorm, which blinded drivers, causing massive accidents and a large explosion on an highway in Germany. At least ten people are dead and dozens injured after a massive 80-car pile up near the Baltic Sea Coast in Germany.

Planetary Tremors: Swarm of Quakes along the Caribbean Plates!

Things are really heating up on planet Earth and we are witnessing the planetary tremors escalate each day as we move towards an imminent geological upheaval.

An ongoing succession of earthquakes has been occurring over the last day or two along the Puerto Rico Trench. This is a subduction zone, similiar to the Cascadia and Sumatra subduction zones.

The Trench is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, and the second deepest part of the Earth's oceans, with a maximum depth of more than 8 km (5 miles), at Milwaukee Deep. The trench marks the location where the North American Plate is being subducted beneath the Caribbean Plate.

The following constitutes a short listing of the recent earthquakes:

Scientists are now collecting data that could better help predict an event which would have devastating consequences as the result of a tsunami hitting the Caribbean region and the US east coastline. If confirmed by analysis of the recently acquired ocean-bottom seismometers (OBS) data, the locations of the tremors at the plate interface may have profound implications about the capability of the Puerto Rico Trench subduction zone to generate large earthquakes and following tsunami. The tectonic profile of the Puerto Rico Trench subduction zone is sometimes compared to that of the Sumatra subduction zone, the site of the earthquake that triggered the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 killing some 250,000 people. This similarity has caused great interest in the research of a potential tsunami hazard to the United States east coast and the northeastern Caribbean.

See more at the Seismological Study of Earthquake Swarms in South-Eastern Puerto Rico.

Recently a Caribbean Tsunami Warning Exercise was conducted by UNESCO and the IOC Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami and other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean Sea and Adjacent Regions. The exercise was called Caribe Wave 11/Lantex 11.

This tsunami exercise is being conducted to assist tsunami preparedness efforts throughout the Caribbean region. Recent events, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean, 2009 Samoa, and 2010 Haiti and Chile earthquakes and tsunamis, attest to the importance of proper planning for tsunami response. Historical tsunami records from sources such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) show that over 75 tsunamis with validity greater than 1 have been observed in the Caribbean over the past 500 years (Figure 1). These represent approximately 7-10% of the world’s oceanic tsunamis. Earthquake, landslide, and volcanic tsunami sources have all impacted the region. Since 1842 at least 3,510 people have lost their lives to tsunamis in the Caribbean. In recent years, there has been an explosive population growth and influx of tourists along the Caribbean coasts increasing the tsunami vulnerability of the region. In addition to the tsunamis, the region also has a long history of destructive earthquakes. Historical records show that major earthquakes have struck the Caribbean region many times during the past 500 years. - Caribe Wave 11/Lantex 11 Handbook.

Planetary Tremors: Precursors To An Imminent Disaster In America -

Monumental Climatic Chaos Across America, Earthquake Swarms, Record Snow,

Wave Of Tornadoes, Wildfires, Rain and Weird Animal Behavior?!

It's becoming quite obvious that America is on the brink of a monumental disaster that will shake the very foundations of this planet. The signs of this are everywhere. The following stories that I am about to highlight are just a tip of an iceberg to that which is coming to the collapsing superpower nation.

We begin in Texas, where wildfires highlight the severe weather conditions over the weekend, wreaking havoc across the state. While some parts of the country are still suffering from the cold, Texas is feeling the heat from wildfires that scorched thousands of acres.


Wildfires scorched more than 230,000 acres in Texas on Sunday, roaring through a West Texas town, destroying an estimated 80 homes and buildings and critically injuring a firefighter. The Texas Forest Service reported more than 60,000 acres burned and 40 homes lost in one blaze that raced through West Texas and into the small mountain town of Fort Davis. The fire rushed across 20 miles in 90 minutes. Officials at the scene, however, estimated at least 100,000 acres in two counties had burned from the fire, which continued to grow Sunday evening. "I can only describe it as an ocean of black, with a few islands of yellow," State Representative Pete Gallego said. Flames "licked at the edges" of the town but did not burn their way through its center, sparing more buildings than expected, he said. But 17 to 20 homes were destroyed, and as many as 30 more buildings were burned, he said after visiting the town, including a more than 100-year-old historic wooden ranch home. Residents had worked overnight to save their homes and moved on to help their neighbors, he said. Hot spots still burned along the highway, and a glow from miles away was visible at night, he said. "Even now, the flames in some places are 15 to 20 feet high," Gallego said. The town was without power Sunday evening. Gallego said many of the residents may not have been insured for fire. Presidio County Emergency Management Coordinator Gary Mitschke said it was the first fire to scare him in 13 years of fighting grass fires. The blaze crossed railroad tracks and state highways as it roared past Fort Davis, he said. Without a change in winds, which were keeping aircraft from helping firefighting efforts, the fire could burn for days or weeks, he said. "Frankly, it moved almost as quick as a truck," Mitschke said. "When you hear the word firestorm, this is what I imagine." A federal emergency management spokesman said a fire grant for the county had been approved Saturday and that the agency stood by to support as needed. Wildfires fed by dry, windy conditions have charred more than 270,000 acres in eight days across Texas, burning homes, killing livestock and drawing in crews and equipment from 25 states. Plants that thrived in wet weather turned to tinder under a cold, dry winter. Weeks of high winds and little moisture have made every spark dangerous. - Reuters.

There was a dramatic increase in the amount of tornadoes during the month of April, especially across the central part of the United States. Warm, moist air clashed with cooler, drier air across the far north. Jet stream energy moving across the country resulted in the development of severe thunderstorms capable of tornadoes. The highest threat was seen over northern Texas and southern Oklahoma, with a medium threat north into central Iowa and east into Georgia. According reports from the Associated Press, there have been reports of tornadoes sweeping across the Midwest, including one that hit Mapleton, a town of 1,200 people in western Iowa. About 100 homes were destroyed, and 12 to 15 blocks of the town were flattened by the devastating twister when it struck about 7:20 p.m. on Saturday. Nearly 60 percent of the town was reportedly ravaged. It was all part of a violent storm system originating in eastern Nebraska and northern Oklahoma and following a warm front across western Iowa, according to Mohler. There was a 10-minute warning. About 500 to 600 residents were displaced, and officials said that no fatalities were reported. The damaging storms were shifting eastward to the Atlantic coast Tuesday.


Meanwhile in the upper Midwest, flooding along the Red River in North Dakota and Minnesota closed at least 60 miles of roads. as heavy rains poured down on Interstate 29. The river is expected to crest at nearly 40 feet and run high for several days in Fargo, North Dakota, where the temporary levee is about 44 feet. In Wisconsin, a powerful storm caused a record-breaking seven tornadoes.


This community just north of Fargo was the scene of two water rescues Sunday as flooding in the area forced the closing of 31 miles of Interstate 29 and prompted officials in nearby Harwood and Casselton to the southwest to halt water use. The North Dakota Department of Transportation on Sunday afternoon closed I-29 between exits 69 and 100 until further notice after several inches of water began coursing over the highway between mile markers 72 and 84. A detour sent traffic through Casselton and Blanchard between Cass County Road 20 just north of Fargo and North Dakota Highway 200 just south of Hillsboro. The detour is about 33 miles longer than the stretch of interstate it replaces. Before the highway was closed early Sunday evening, the flooding was causing an hour delay for northbound traffic, according to Bob Walton, district engineer for the department of transportation. The expanse of water in the area reminded one highway official of Devils Lake: “As far as you can see, it’s water,” said Bruce Nord, maintenance superintendent for the transportation department. Nord said the stretch of highway hasn’t experienced flooding conditions since the early 1970s. The affected portion of the interstate had been rebuilt in recent years, but not raised. Nord warned that the interstate in this area could be closed for several days. - Grand Forks Herald.

In Wisconsin, a powerful storm caused a record-breaking seven tornadoes.


A powerful storm system that moved through the nation’s midsection over the weekend caused what may be a record-breaking seven tornadoes in Wisconsin, officials said Monday. “It’s one of the most significant tornado outbreaks in April,” said Rich Mamrosh, meteorologist for the National Weather Service. He said if confirmed, the number of Sunday night storms may have broken a record for a single day in April in the state — the previous record was six. Mamrosh said a strong low pressure system moved from South Dakota to northern Wisconsin Sunday, moving warm, moist air into the state, which was followed by a cold front, producing the storms. A tornado in Merrill in the north-central portion of the state causing widespread damage to homes and businesses, said Captain Scott Krause of the Merrill Fire Department. Three people were taken to area hospitals. Storms caused damage in other portions of the Midwest and south over the weekend. Iowa governor Terry Branstad declared a state of emergency after a storm Saturday that destroyed over half the town of Mapleton, but left no one seriously injured among its 1,200 residents, according to local law enforcement. The peak U.S. tornado season lasts from March until early July, the period when warm, humid air often has to thrust upward against cool, dry air. – Yahoo News.
In Arizona, several areas was hit with over ten inches of snow.


A winter storm warning remains in effect through 5 pm as a spring snowstorm that has already dropped nearly a foot of snow in areas of Flagstaff continues to move across the region. As of 10:30 am, the National Weather Service in Bellemont said it had so far received reports of 12 inches of snow in Grand Canyon Village, 10 to 11 inches in Flagstaff, 10 inches in Parks, 7 inches in Williams, 4.5 inches in Kachina Village and 4 inches in Doney Park. Sedona received an inch of snow all in one hour. The Arizona Department of Transportation said that the I-17 North is closed between State Route 179 and Flagstaff because of the snow. ADOT is encouraging people to avoid driving unless necessary. NWS meteorologist Ken Daniel said that Flagstaff was nearing the back edge of the main part of the storm system and said the region should expect another few inches of snow over the coming hours. He added that scattered precipitation would continue throughout the day. - AZ Daily Sun.

In Oklahoma, baseball-sized hail and strong winds hammered sections of the northwest.


A Tornado Watch was issued late this afternoon shortly before storms exploded across areas north and west of Enid. The watch is set to expire at 1 a.m. Saturday as the storms fizzle out while moving into areas of southern Kansas. So far today no official reports of a tornado touching down in the state. More storms are in the forecast this weekend. Sunday a powerful storm system will move into the central plains. Ahead of it very warm temperatures and strong winds will fuel an extreme fire danger for most all of Oklahoma. A burn ban is currently issued for 47 counties in Oklahoma. All outdoor burning, including grilling of any type, is prohibited in the banned areas. - KTUL.

In other sections of Oklahoma, extreme and record drought conditions continues to devastate wheat crop production.


Counties across Oklahoma are seeing severe drought conditions. The drought is the worst the state has seen since the 1920s. During a good crop season and for this time of the year, the wheat should be about 18 inches tall, but many wheat fields are only about six inches or less. Wheat in many Oklahoma fields is more brown than green. "Brown from a lack of rain," said farmer Roy Wilson. This is the worst drought Wilson has seen in his 40 years of farming. "Even if we get a rain now, this crop won't survive," Wilson said. Wilson grows wheat to bail for hay to feed his cattle. He can usually get about 120 bails, but this year he said he will be lucky to get 10. "I will have to look elsewhere for hay to feed my cattle," Wilson said. He can salvage what's left in his field by letting cattle graze. Down the road, even though it's waving in the wind, Wilson's other crop is not what it should be. "It ain't gonna be 100 percent, but it will probably be an 80 percent crop on it," Wilson said. Wilson's not alone. Farmers all over the state are praying for rain to save what's left. Instead of selling the wheat for food, most farmers will most likely make money by selling crops as hay and recoup their losses through crop insurance. "We're gonna have to find something to supplement what we lost this year," Wilson said. Most likely there will be a spike in food prices because of the short wheat crop, but just how high prices will go won't be known until harvest time which is in June. Agricultural experts said if the state does get rain soon, crops north of I-40 could be decent, but rain or not crops south of I-40 do not have a chance. - NewsOn6.
In Seattle, a report from the city's Green Seattle Partnership – a volunteer effort to preserve the city's forests – has forecast that 7 out of 10 Seattle forest trees be die in 20 years.


The report says that without massive effort, 7 out of 10 trees in Seattle's forests will be dead within 20 years. That's due to English ivy, Himalayan blackberry and other invasive plants infesting more than 40 percent of Seattle's native forests. "City forests are failing as trees reach the end of their natural life, and invasive plants choke out the next generation of trees," wrote Mark Mead, a senior urban forester with the city's Parks and Recreation Department. Seattle's struggling tree canopy isn't complete news to tree saviors, and the city began trying to reverse the trend six years ago with Green Seattle Partnership, an effort with the Cascade Land Conservancy. But the latest report shows that budget pain is hampering the effort's lofty goal of restoring 2,500 forest acres in 20 years. - Seattle PI.
In New Orleans, Feral flocks of chickens have proliferated the neighborhoods.


Since Hurricane Katrina, Ruby Melton's 9th Ward enclave has welcomed a new species of neighbor: clucking, crowing, prancing chickens that dart across streets and nest in the trees. "We don't have stray dogs any more," said Melton, 68. "But everyone I talk to has stray chickens." Most people figure that the wild birds descended from domesticated fowl that escaped backyard coops after the storm. Since then, the population has boomed, with the local SPCA chapter now dispatching officers weekly to catch feral chickens, spokeswoman Katherine LeBlanc said. Most calls hinge on neighbors' irritation with ear-piercing squawks, she said, rather than complaints about chicken droppings or attacks on pets or children. The birds don't appear to be fugitives from the growing number of New Orleans homesteaders who raise chickens for eggs and meat. Animal control officers place the stray chickens with a farmer they call the Chicken Man, LeBlanc said, noting that capturing the creatures is "extremely hard" and often requires the effort of several officers... Several 7th Ward chickens commute between two empty lots on opposite sides of Touro Street. Cynthia Stampley, who has lived on the block for 30 years, said that until Katrina, she'd never seen such a proliferation of wild chickens. Other cities have waged high-profile battles with chickens. After neighbors complained last year, animal-control workers in the Bronx removed 35 chickens that were "believed to be the city's largest brood of wild chickens," according to a newspaper report. – Nola.
If all of the preceding is not enough, then the continuous swarm of earthquakes stretching from Washington to California to Nevada to Wyoming and to Arkansas surely should indicate that the seismographs are registering tectonic plate movements that could result in major seismic disturbances.

In a previous article, I looked at the seal of the District of Columbia, that shows the Capital Dome in Washington D.C. submerged under water, last week the BBC published an article indicating that rising sea levels could result in the disappearance of New York.
New York is a major loser and Reykjavik a winner from new forecasts of sea level rise in different regions. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in 2007 that sea levels would rise at least 28cm (1ft) by the year 2100. But this is a global average; and now a Dutch team has made what appears to be the first attempt to model all the factors leading to regional variations. Other researchers say the IPCC's figure is likely to be a huge under-estimate. Whatever the global figure turns out to be, there will be regional differences. Ocean currents and differences in the temperature and salinity of seawater are among the factors that mean sea level currently varies by up a metre across the oceans - this does not include short-term changes due to tides or winds. So if currents change with global warming, which is expected - and if regions such as the Arctic Ocean become less saline as ice sheets discharge their contents into the sea - the regional patterns of peaks and troughs will also change. "Everybody will still have the impact, and in many places they will get the average rise," said Roderik van der Wal from the University of Utrecht, one of the team presenting their regional projections at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) meeting in Vienna. "But places like New York are going to have a larger contribution than the average - 20% more in this case. - BBC.
Considering the exponential rate with which we are experiencing these Earth changes and the near impossibility of finding sustainable alternatives to the natural resources, then it seems that we probably need to take heed to the Astrophysicist Nassim Haramein's and Professor Stephen Hawking's dire message that the planet is really on the brink of an extinction.

"We need to free our society from the bounds of being stuck to the surface of the planet. Which is NOT a really good place to be. Just isn't. Cosmologically speaking, surfaces of planets are highly unstable... There's a typically cosmological time period in which a civilization like ours has to figure out how to get off their rock, and if they don't on time, well, you know, on to the next round. You see what I am saying? This is a fundamental step that a civilization MUST do." - Haramein.

"I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space. It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster on planet Earth in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand, or million. The human race shouldn't have all its eggs in one basket, or on one planet. Let's hope we can avoid dropping the basket until we have spread the load." - Hawking.

As our Sun continues to age and expand, our planet will continue to heat up and weather anomalies will increase in magnitude and frequency. Given these factors and the contributions of man-made weather manipulation and modification, it will only be a matter of time, before these precursors produces a monumental catastrophic event along the American landmass.

Stay tuned.

Planetary Tremors: Precursors To An Imminent Disaster In America -

Yellowstone Supervolcano May Be Larger Than Previously Thought!

In the 2009, science fiction disaster film, 2012,the destruction of the majority of planet Earth starts off when seismic tremors increases rapidly along the west coast of the United States, causing a mega earthquake that ruptured the San Andreas Fault, ultimately leading to a massive eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera. If movies are seen as a form of predictive programming or foreshadowing, perhaps we should take the Roland Emmerich film seriously, considering that the film's depiction of the Caldera resulted in monumental cataclysmic chaos across the globe and given the following news report from the Huffington Post.

It's kind of a scary thought to consider the possibility that a 'supervolcano' could be even bigger than scientists initially believed. The volcanic mass, known as the Yellowstone Caldera or more commonly the Yellowstone Supervolcano, was previously measured at about 25 miles by 37 miles wide. However, a new study, set to be published in the Geophysical Research Letters journal says there may be more to it than that. Using a new method of magnetic imaging, scientists have come to theorize that the plume feeding the underground volcano could extend further than seismic measurements taken in 2009 suggest.
From the BBC: "The new study, using electrical conductivity, can only see about 320km (200mi) below ground. But it shows the conductive part of the plume dipping more gently, at an angle of perhaps 40 degrees to the west, and extending perhaps 640 km (400 miles) from east to west. The caldera has seen quite a bit of activity in recent years. According to National Geographic, some areas of Yellowstone have seen the ground rise as much as much as 10 inches as a result of swelling magma."
The caldera has seen quite a bit of activity in recent years. According to National Geographic, some areas of Yellowstone have seen the ground rise as much as much as 10 inches as a result of swelling magma. However, the ground has swelled and reduced numerous times over the years. While ground swelling can be a sign of a pending explosion, such as in the case of Mt. St. Helens, it doesn't necessarily mean an eruption is looming, according to National Geographic.

MAJOR GLOBAL ALERT: UN - Ozone Depletion at Record 40 Percent!

Several days ago, I highlighted an article from the National Geographic that pointed to the stripping of the protective ozone from the Arctic atmosphere and the catastrophic repercussions that could result if the low-ozone air drifted south. On April 6th, the United Nations published a report indicating that the the Arctic ozone depletion had reached a record 40 percent.

There was an unprecedented thinning of the ozone layer over the Arctic region last winter, according to the United Nations' meteorological agency. Scientists had anticipated the depletion, which is separate from another one in Antartica, but nonetheless urged vigilance to keep harmful ultraviolet light from rising. The Arctic's ozone layer in stratosphere, the second major layor of the Earth's atmosphere, thinned by 40 percent during the season, up from a record of 30 percent, according to the World Meteorological Organization. The depletion resulted from an extremely cold winter in the stratosphere and the continuing presence of chlorofluorocarbons, which destroy ozone molecules. Ozone is an invisible form of oxygen that protects life from the sun's ultraviolet light. But the benefits from it end in the stratosphere, which starts at an altitude of 6 miles and ends at 31 miles. At lower levels in the atmosphere, ozone is corrosive. It emits thermal radiation, and together with other gases such as carbon dioxide cause temperatures to rise much like in a greenhouse. The WMO, which has 189 member-states, made clear the seasonal ozone loss was expected if there was an unusually cold winter in the stratosphere. The effects of ozone in the lower atmosphere were officially recognized in 1987, when nations banned the use chlorofluorocarbons in manufacturing spray cans, styrofoam and refrigerator coolants under the Montreal Protocol. However, chlorofluorocarbons will remain in the atmosphere for decades. The ozone layer over Antartica in the South Pole, where a hole was discovered in the 1970s, is expected to recover between 2045 and 2060. The Antartic ozone hole is an annual phenomenon that happens when temperatures in the stratosphere drop during winter. According to NASA, its size varies but in 2007 was bigger than the whole of North America. In the Arctic, a region that spans all or parts of Canada, Denmark , Russia, Sweden and the United States, the recovery of the ozone layer is expected between 2025 and 2040. According to WMO, ozone loss occurs in the Arctic and Antartic when temperatures fall below -78°C. During such conditions, chemical reactions in the stratosphere turn clouds into ozone-depleting gases, much like chlorofluorocarbons. There is less depletion in the North Pole because the Arctic is always comparatively warmer than the Antartic. "The degree of ozone loss experienced in any particular winter depends on the meteorological conditions," WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said in a statement. "The 2011 ozone loss shows that we have to remain vigilant and keep a close eye on the situation in the Arctic in the coming years." - All Headline News.

FRINGE: Convergence - Betelgeuse, Tyche, Elenin & Asteroid SO16?!

Several weeks ago, we were told that the star Betelgeuse was expected to explode as it enters the late stage of stellar evolution and that this cosmic phenomenon could result in the Earth having a second Sun. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia, claimed that the galactic blast could happen before 2012 – or any time over the next million years. ‘This old star is running out of fuel in its centre,’ Dr Carter told the Australian news website AU. ‘This fuel keeps Betelgeuse shining and supported. When this fuel runs out the star will literally collapse in upon itself and it will do so very quickly. This is the final hurrah for the star. It goes bang, it explodes, it lights up - we’ll have incredible brightness for a brief period of time for a couple of weeks and then over the coming months it begins to fade and then eventually it will be very hard to see at all,’ he added.

We were also told that, several weeks earlier, that a giant hidden planet, Tyche, about four times the size of the planet Jupiter, may exist in our Solar System. According to astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmore from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, scientist may soon be able to prove the existence of the gas giant. 'You'd also expect it to have moons. All the outer planets have them,' Whitmore declared. The two men declared that the hypothetical planet may be used to explain the change in path of comets entering the solar system.

Speaking of comets, we were also told late last year, that Comet C/2010 X1, also known as Elenin will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 10 September 2011 at a distance of 0.4824 AU. On 16 October 2011, the comet will pass within about 0.23 AU (34,000,000 km; 21,000,000 mi) of the Earth at a relative velocity of 86,000 km/hr. The relatively bright comet will reach about 5th magnitude near mid-October 2011.

Now we are being told that planet Earth is in orbital companionship with a giant asteroid on its path around the Sun.

Earth has found a new companion that has joined its orbit around the sun, scientists have revealed. It may not have the most romantic of names, but Asteroid 2010 SO16 could pursue Earth for anywhere between the next 120,000 to a million years. And at a few hundred metres across, it is the largest space rock ever discovered so close to earth. But there is something unusual about SO16, say Apostolos Christou and David Asher who discovered the giant floating rock last September at the Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland. Rather than follow its new friend all the way round, SO16 orbits the sun in a horseshoe shape, playing a constant game of catch up with Earth, they say. The closer to the sun an object is, the faster it will orbit. So when SO16 entered the sun's orbit, it was further away than Earth and therefore slower. When Earth finally caught up with the asteroid, instead of overtaking it, its gravitational pull drew it closer to the sun sending it back round at a faster pace. Now quicker than Earth, SO16 speeds round its shorter orbit until it catches Earth again and is this time pulled away from the sun, slowing it down. More simply, from the point of view of the Earth, the asteroid has a horseshoe-shaped orbit, constantly moving towards and away from the Earth without ever passing it. But from the asteroid's point of view, it orbits the Sun continuously in the same direction, more quickly in smaller orbits and more slowly in bigger ones. Christou and Asher say this process is repeated over and over again until the asteroid dies. At the moment SO16 is travelling at one of its closest approach points and will be visible in the evening sky for several decades to come. - Daily Mail.
Now, I don't know about you, but I am a professional skeptic and I just can't help but to get the impression that we are being lied to here. Is it possible that these announcements are nothing short of a deliberate attempt to mask the path of another planetary/solar object coming into our Solar System and the perturbations that it will have on the orbit of all the planets, including that of Earth? Is that the reason why we are being told that Betelgeuse, Tyche and Elenin could be plainly visible quite soon to even amateur telescopes?

This idea of a twin planet or binary Sun is at the centre of the overarching story of the Fox television series Fringe, where the planet from a parallel universe is rapidly converging on the prime one. As a result of this imminent convergence, cataclysmic events are set in motion at areas where there is a conjunction, resulting in weak points in the fabric of each world. The repercussions of which are the sudden and mysterious death of people and animals, the extinction of various species of animals such as sheep, the destruction of a large section of western California due to a San Andreas Fault-type event, worldwide coastal submergence, destructive voids and vortexes, and various other weather anomalies.

If all of that sounds familiar to you, then it should be, it might not just be the creation and production from the mind of J.J. Abrams, but something we are currently experiencing now, that will escalate further in the coming weeks, months and years.
