– Plunging solar activity threatens ‘Little Ice Age’ (Ice Age Now, June 25, 2015):

Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nosediving to levels “not seen for centuries”, says an article today in The Express.

They fear a repeat of the so-called ‘Maunder Minimum’ which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago. Continue reading »

As a side note:

Every time you are smoking a cigarette, you are inhaling polonium. Big Tobacco knows this and could easily remove the polonium, BUT that would greatly reduce the nicotine hit smokers are getting from smoking a cigarette, thereby smoking would be much less addictive and that would result in less profit (and cancer).

NASA Experts: Southeast US hit by “anomalously high” levels of polonium from Fukushima — Never seen before, except during volcanic events — Fallout also detected in Mississippi river — Polonium releases kept secret in past nuclear disasters; Death estimates would skyrocket if included (ENENews, June 26, 2015):

Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, W. Yang and L. Guo, NASA Stennis Space Center and Univ. of Southern Mississippi Dept. of Marine Science, 2012 (emphasis added): Depositional fluxes and residence time of atmospheric radioiodine (131I) from the Fukushima accident

  • The Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant explosions… emitted vast quantities of radioactive materials into the environment… radioiodine (131I)… 134Cs and 137Cs are of special concern to people because they could trigger dangerous health effects Continue reading »

“Eerie new phenomenon” attacking sea creatures on West Coast — Marine life disappearing from tide pools — Fish, octopus, mussels, urchins, limpets, sea hares “seem to be leaving… there’s something going on” — “Experts have no idea what to expect next” (VIDEO) (ENENews, June 25, 2015):

Laguna Beach Independent, May 10, 2015 (emphasis added): Tide Pool Life Diminishes… an eerie new phenomenon, urchin balding, is attacking purple-spined sea urchins in Orange County tide pools, and local scientists are investigating this new mystery… tide pool conditions have worsened over the last year, said Jayson Smith, a Cal Poly Pomona marine biologist… Where once abalone, lobster and sea stars thrived, now sea hares, octopus, small fish, limpets and mussels seem to be leaving the scene, said Smith. The latest debacle leaves urchins with bald spots, where algae takes root, said Jennifer Burnaford, biology professor at Cal State Fullerton… Scientists have yet to understand the urchin-balding syndrome, said Smith… “Things are looking pretty poor right now,” he commented. Educators… report seeing fewer urchins at some tide pools and more empty shells. The once-prolific California blue mussels are also becoming increasingly sparse… “We appear to have more than just the sea-star wasting,” [Louise Thornton, chair of Laguna Ocean Foundation] said. “We appear to have something else going on. There’s something going on because the fish are disappearing.” Continue reading »

Fukushima plume model shows 1 Million Bq/m2 over West Coast after reactor explosions — TV: Private emails reveal highest levels of gov’t worried about health impact in US — Nuclear industry tried to bury truth, while UC Berkeley experts told public “there is no plume” (VIDEO) (ENENews, June 25, 2015):

The Big Picture, Jun 24, 2015 — Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear (emphasis added): “A recent revelation of Nuclear Regulatory Commission internal emails… reveal that there was concern at the highest levels of the U.S. government, and rightly so, about the radioactive iodine-131 escaping from Fukushima Dai-ichi… and reaching the United States… Rainwater at 242 times safe drinking water act permissible levels — so you better believe we got radioactive iodine-131 in the United States. Likely people ingested it — either breathed it in, or drank it in milk, or various other ingestion pathways. It attacks the thyroid gland… it does a tremendous amount of damage. And these emails… show that US government officials were worried about that, were calling for studies to be done to try to track the health damage. And what do you know, those studies did not happen… The monitoring and testing and the epidemiology were woefully inadequate to non-existent… The nuclear industry will try to bury the truth, and that sure happened after Fukushima… I think there’s been a huge dereliction of duty at the federal and the state levels.”

Kamps appears to be referencing an ENENews report from earlier this month, Censored US gov’t emails reveal proposed plan to test West Coast residents for Fukushima fallout — “Many cases of cancer may end up being attributed to exposures” — Doses could exceed emergency levels Continue reading »

GM wheat crop fails to repel bugs, £3m trial branded ‘a waste’ (RT, June 25, 2015):

A controversial trial of genetically modified (GM) wheat has failed to repel pests any more effectively than ordinary crops, scientists have found.

Researchers attempted to engineer a variety of wheat to emit an odor that deters aphids in the hope of reducing the amount of pesticides required by plants.

The crops, nicknamed “whiffy wheat,” were successful in lab tests, but succumbed to aphids when trialed in the field. Continue reading »

NZ – South Island wakes to record freeze (Ice Age, June 23, 2015):

“In a rare event, almost the entire South Island has woken up to temperatures below zero degrees today,”

says Radio New Zealand.

“MetService meteorologist Stephen Glassy said the coldest place in the South Island overnight was Pukaki aerodrome near Twizel which reached a bone chilling – 19.8°C

One person died when their car hit black ice today near Christchurch.

Meanwhile, some people in the Canterbury region have been without power since heavy snow brought down lines last week.

Stunning Dave Hodges Interview with Deborah Tavares: “From Toilet to Tap, California, Your Water Is Being Poisoned” (The Common Sense Show, June 23, 2015):

Deborah Tavares was Dave’s featured guest this past Sunday evening and she covered a variety of important topics ranging from toilet to tap reusable water that cannot fully be treated. We also discussed the contrived and artificial water shortage in California that is really not a shortage. Deborah was quick to point out that Northern California is extreme danger of burning up this summer. The ultimate goal is the mass migration of people from California.

Norway – Popular hiking trail closed – 1½ meters more snow than normal – Video (Ice Age Now, June 22, 2015):

Should be green by now, and have thousands of sheep grazing

_____________________________________________________________________

“I am currently on a MC trip up though the coastline in Norway, and it has been a very cold journey so far, only 3C on some passes in the mountains,” says reader 996bip.

“I was planning to also do some hiking to some of the known mountains, though tourist season is in full swing, still a lot of places is closed due to snow, and frozen lakes. The popular hiking trail over “Besseggen” was closed due to the boat that takes tourist over the lake, could not go because of ice. Continue reading »

California looks to the ocean for water during historic drought (Al Jazeera, June 22, 2015):

CARLSBAD, California — Along the sun-dappled shores of the Pacific Ocean, the electronic signs up and down Interstate 5 flash constant reminders to save water during California’s worst drought in history.

It’s a cruel irony for residents of a state that borders water along more than 1,000 miles of coastline.

Desalination, the complicated, costly and environmentally sensitive process of drawing millions of gallons of seawater and taking the salt out to make it potable, has not been widely embraced in a state that is suffering a severe drought. Continue reading »

Water Wars Crush California Wineries: “Whoever Has The Longest Straw Wins” (ZeroHedge, June 21, 2015):

Eerily reminiscent of the determinedly evil oil baron from the movie ‘There Will Be Blood’, Reuters reports the growing tensions amid California’s drought-stricken wineries are boiling over: “There is way too much demand. I blame a lot of vineyards like other people do… It’s a matter of who has the longest straw at the bottom of the bucket.” No one should worry though, because the government is here to help – with a new water management agency…

Between 1990 and 2014, harvested wine grape acreage in the growing region around Paso Robles nearly quintupled to 37,408 acres, as vintners discovered that the area’s rolling hills, rocky soil and mild climate were perfect for coaxing rich, sultry flavors from red wine grapes. But, as Reuters reports, in the last few years, California’s ongoing drought has hit the region hard, reducing grape yields and depleting the vast aquifer that most of the area’s vineyards and rural residents rely on as their sole source of water other than rain.

They conveniently ignore all the damage to properties over the years, or gas from faucets, or poisoned water, so now they are unviable they need an escape plan.”

US mid-continent seismicity linked to high-rate injection wells (The Watchers, June 19, 2015):

A dramatic increase in the rate of earthquakes in the central and eastern US since 2009 is associated with fluid injection wells used in oil and gas development, says a new study by the University of Colorado Boulder and the USGS.

The number of earthquakes associated with injection wells has skyrocketed from a handful per year in the 1970s to more than 650 in 2014, according to CU-Boulder doctoral student Matthew Weingarten, who led the new study.

The increase included several damaging quakes in 2011 and 2012 ranging between magnitudes 4.7 and 5.6 in Prague, Oklahoma; Trinidad, Colorado; Timpson, Texas; and Guy, Arkansas.

“This is the first study to look at correlations between injection wells and earthquakes on a broad, nearly national scale,” said Weingarten of CU-Boulder’s geological sciences department. “We saw an enormous increase in earthquakes associated with these high-rate injection wells, especially since 2009, and we think the evidence is convincing that the earthquakes we are seeing near injection sites are induced by oil and gas activity.”

The researchers found that “high-rate” injection wells – those pumping more than 300 000 barrels of wastewater a month into the ground – were much more likely to be associated with earthquakes than lower-rate injection wells. Injections are conducted either for enhanced oil recovery, which involves the pumping of fluid into depleted oil reservoirs to increase oil production, or for the disposal of salty fluids produced by oil and gas activity, said Weingarten.

California Has Never Experienced A Water Crisis Of This Magnitude – And The Worst Is Yet To Come (Economic Collapse, June 17, 2015):

Things have never been this dry for this long in the recorded history of the state of California, and this has created an unprecedented water crisis.  At this point, 1,900 wells have already gone completely dry in California, and some communities are not receiving any more water at all.  As you read this article, 100 percent of the state is in some stage of drought, and there has been so little precipitation this year that some young children have never actually seen rain.

This is already the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state of California, but this may only be just the beginning.  Scientists tell us that the amount of rain that California received during the 20th century was highly unusual.  In fact, they tell us that it was the wettest century for the state in at least 1000 years.

Norway – Coldest first half of June in 92 years (Ice Age Now, June 17. 2015):

“We are having the coldest June in 92 years here in middle of Norway,” says reader Tomas Idunno.
Quote translate using google translate:
Coldest June in 92 years. You have every reason to complain about the weather. Trøndelag has not experienced such a cold first half of June since 1923.“Since the daily measurements of mean (average temperature through the day) began in Trondheim in 1870, it has been measured an even colder first half of June only once, 92 years ago.”

California property values collapse as water shut-offs begin… wealthy community to go dry in days… real estate implosion now inevitable (Natural News, June 17, 2015):

Water shut-offs have now begun in California, where government-ordered restrictions are starting to leave large communities high and dry. As CBS News is now reporting, the Mountain House community of 15,000 residents will run out of water in just a matter of days.

“The community’s sole source of water, the Byron-Bethany Irrigation District, was one of 114 senior water rights holders cut off by a curtailment notice from the state on Friday,” reports CBS.

And just like that, the property values of millions of dollars worth of homes belonging to 15,000 residents nosedives toward zero. Continue reading »

Green is the new Red - Agenda 21agenda21_dees


Vatican speaker and California Governor in push for massive depopulation… talk of ‘Planetary Court’ and removal of 6 billion people under new ‘Earth Constitution’ and ‘World Government’ (Natural News, June 15, 2015):

The depopulationists are on the move again, pushing hard for the elimination of six billion people on planet Earth in order to bring the planet down to what’s being touted as its “sustainable carrying capacity of one billion people.”

But this time, the depopulation agenda may be codified by the Vatican. Professor John Schellnhuber has been chosen as a speaker for the Vatican’s rolling out of a Papal document on climate change. He’s the professor who previously said the planet is overpopulated by at least six billion people. Now, the Vatican is giving him a platform which many expect will result in an official Church declaration in support of radical depopulation in the name of “climate science.” Continue reading »

10 Years of Climate Data Shows No Sign of Global Warming (The Daily Sheeple, June 16, 2015):

Over the years the government and the scientific community have largely stood their ground when it comes to climate change. They’ve been adamant in their assertion that the planet is gradually warming due to human activity, and that we all need to do our part to stop climate change. However, the data provided by the scientific community doesn’t always jibe with their claims.

At least, that seems to be the case with the data coming out of NOAA’s climate monitoring stations. They have a series of 114 stations across all 50 states, which is known as the US Climate Reference Network. For the past 10 years they’ve shown no sign of global warming. In fact, there’s been a very slight cooling in temperatures across the US.
