“Rip in Earth” CONFIRMED: May Spell Doomsday!

Before you panic and pack up the old lady and babies to head to the hills you must first know that what scientists have discovered has been known for the past 90 years! So don’t head to that survival shelter just yet. ūüôā

In the Pacific “Ring of Fire” there is a tear or rip that is approximately 60,000 square kilometers (23.2 sq miles) in size. It has been known about for the past 90 years and has now been confirmed to be very real, indeed. The rip is just north of Australia and it is a matter of concern because it exists within the Pacific “Rim of Fire” which is the most active fault line on the planet not to mention the many volcanoes that exist along the rim. The Ring of Fire basically extends around the Pacific coastline from New Zealand to Asia to Canada and down to the US west coast and South America.

Every year there are significant volcanic eruptions and earthquakes along this grand fault line and in many cases the earthquakes are very deadly such as those we’ve seen in just the past few months in Japan, Peru, and New Zealand. Scientists fear that some really huge quakes (mega-quakes) may be on the horizon. The rip or tear is actually an exposed fault and although it has been known about for the past 90 years and has now been confirmed to really exist scientists do not know how it got there.

The rip is known as the Banda Detachment and it is believed to have formed as the result of one tectonic plate sliding under another resulting in the Earth’s crust sinking into the mantle. The plate is now in a position where a sudden slip could lead to some of the largest earthquakes in history and, thus, cause mega-tsunamis that could cause disaster in ways we’ve never seen before.

Australian National University researcher Jonathan Powhall and his team have now found a 7 km (2.7 mile) deep abyss beneath the Banda Sea off the coast of eastern Indonesia and it may well be the plant’s largest exposed fault plane. This is in a region that already has an extreme tsunami risk. The results of a quick slip of the tectonic plate would be nothing short of disastrous.

This brought to my mind something archaeologist Jonathan Gray has said. That is, there are ancient stories about how the earth’s crust “ripped apart” causing global disaster long ago! Gray documents these ancient stories in several of his publications including “Dead Man’s Secrets” and “The Killing of Paradise Planet.”

Gray says these ancient stories speak of a time when everything in prehistoric human life changed within 24 hours! Gray also cites physical evidence around the world to prove this global disaster actually happened in our prehistory. The Banda Detachment may well be the “smoking gun” and the disaster may repeat itself anytime.

Ironically, when it comes to human prehistory we know our past BUT when it comes to human PREHISTORY we know very little as written records were not kept and most of human history was passed down orally from generation to generation. Human prehistory runs from the believed appearance of modern man (Homo sapiens) about 200,000 years ago to the invention of writing about 5,500 years ago (estimates vary). So basically anything before 5.5 thousand years ago is considered as “prehistory” and anything after that time is considered “history.”

Now…..I don’t know about you but I’m packing my survival shit just in case I have to go on a moments notice! ¬†And btw whoever you homesteaders are who’ve invaded my bunker I’m coming to evict you! ¬†Get the hell out!!! ¬†Each man for himself!!! ¬†Women and children last!!

DOOMED! ¬†DOOMED I TELL YA! ¬†We’re all DOOMED!!!

Victory at Standing Rock…..sorta

uniteThe Secretary of the Army Corp of Engineers announced today that the route of the Dakota Access Pipeline will be DENIED. The corp said that the best alternative is to explore other routes for the pipeline at this point. Cheers erupted within the makeshift camp of protesters and veterans who have been gathered for months now in North Dakota opposing the pipeline route which would have run within 1/2 mile of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and crossed under the Missouri River. Protesters say the pipeline would have adverse effects on drinking water and sacred sites in the area.

Tomorrow is the deadline given by the US Government for protesters to abandon their makeshift camp due to, alleged, worries about plunging temps and snow in the area. As far as we know that deadline is still scheduled to take effect tomorrow.

President Obama has repeatedly asked the Energy Transfer Partners company who is behind the pipeline project to stop construction but those requests have been ignored. Spokesmen with the company said last month that they were 100% sure that the pipeline will be approved by the incoming Trump Administration regardless of what the US Army Corp of Engineers says to the contrary!

Senator Bernie Sanders praised today’s move saying he was thankful the project has listened to Native American concerns and others who oppose the pipeline.

For now the indigenous peoples of North Dakota are victorious but we’ll see what happens when the Trump Administration takes over the reigns of power come January 20. One thing is certain and that is that the protesters WILL be back if today’s victory is short-lived!

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!

Sea Ice Extent Nearly Same as 100 Years Ago!

There is absolutely no question that the global climate is changing and for that matter climate is ALWAYS CHANGING as it never stays stagnant. Sometimes climate changes in small even subtle ways and other times climate changes in somewhat dramatic ways. But the point is climate is always changing.

Thus is the case with the sea ice in Antarctica and what a new study has discovered is that the extend of the sea ice there has changed very little over the course of the past 100 years. Man-made global warming is NOT drastically reducing the sea ice as some would like to have us believe. However, in my opinion there is indeed man-made global warming contributors and we all need to do our part to reduce greenhouse gases and emissions as I firmly believe humankind has a sacred obligation to be STEWARDS not pillagers of our planet (nature). Truth is we DO do things that are bad not only for the planet’s environments but for ourselves and we need to curb these toxic practices as best we can and within reason.

That said, the new study conducted an analysis over the past 100 years data from previous Antarctic expeditions and what they found is that when they superimposed past shipping expedition routes in Antarctica over current routes there has been little significant change over those 100 years. Researchers also reviewed the log books of polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton from their expeditions between 1901-1904 and 1907-1909. What they discovered in those comparisons is that the assertion that sea ice has declined after the 1950’s in the region due to man-caused global warming CANNOT be supported.

In fact, changes in sea ice are NORMAL and are part of a NATURAL CYCLE and are NOT the result of massive man-made global warming! In fact, over the past 30 years Antarctic sea ice has actually increased slightly and we know this from satellite observations over the continent. This according to Dr Jonathan Day a meteorology professor who was part of the study. He said, “…these new findings suggest it may not be anything new.”

Additionally, our Sun is now reaching its lowest activity level not seen since 2011 and there is growing speculation among some scientists that what is happening is NOT global warming but the possibility that we may be entering into a mini ice age. In fact, we ARE ALREADY IN AN ICE AGE and have been for a long while now. Since around 12,000 years ago when recorded history began (anything prior to that is deemed pre-history) our planet has been in a warming period and judging from what we know about such periods in the past we are assured that the ice will return. BTW some of those past warming periods have seen temps HIGHER than what we see today by far!

When it comes to the Sun the longest solar minimum that we know of lasted for about 70 years. That is known as the Maunder Minimum which was between 1645-1715. During that period the Thames River in London froze over and “frost fairs” became rather popular there as Europe was thrown into what is known as the “Little Ice Age.” Normally, ice-free rivers throughout Europe froze over and snow fields remained year around at lower altitudes. We may be heading into a repeat of the Mini Ice Age OR we may be heading into something much, much bigger. In fact, we may be headed into the end era of this warming period we have been living in!

Fudging the data and changing temps to appear to be a few degrees higher as NASA and some scientists have and ARE doing is not going to change the growing apparent reality! A lot of the global warming hype is geared towards MONEY in the form of carbon taxes all scheduled to go to that HIGHLY CORRUPT body known as the United Nations! In fact, their own scientists have been uncovered red-handed outright LYING about climate data if you recall not so long ago! Here’s what gets me, however, and what concerns me MOST. The global warming advocates have been preparing us for global warming but what happens if we get global cooling (ICE AGE) instead? How many people will die of hypothermia and starvation? Billions!

As I said, climate change is a reality and there is absolutely no doubt that our planet’s climate IS changing. Question is just what is it changing to? Warming or massive cooling? If we are going to tackle climate change in an intelligent and logical way void of the hype then we need to tackle the problem with level headedness and common sense. We need to look at past data such as this new study did and compare it to the present and draw our hypotheses from such. Politicizing climate change as we have done is HIGHLY liable to put humanity on the verge of mass extinction by a failure to prepare us for what is REALLY coming.

Ice core and sea core samples have shown repeatedly that ever so often something happens on this planet that is INSTANT and FATAL! We don’t know what exactly it is but we do know we find animals and trees under the ice that appear to have been flash frozen. We need to take a lesson from that and prepare instead of stroking all the hype motivated by BIG MONEY.

Finally, whatever the case, warming or cooling, we each have a responsibility to be stewards of our planet and it’s environment. For far too long we have viewed ourselves as dominators and this has resulted in the pillaging of our environments all so we can gain mega profits! We DO need to cut our production of dangerous gases that are indeed man-made toxins! We DO need to clean up our environments on land and sea and in the atmosphere. We DO need to not only look for safer ways of doing things that are less harmful to the environment and we DO need to COEXIST with our environment! We may not be able to stop climate change, and likely we won’t, BUT we will enjoy a less toxic planet! It’s time to cast out the politics in the issue of climate change and start applying some common sense and REAL SCIENCE!!

Dakota Showdown! Native Americans Resist…..again!!

Thousands have been gathered for the past few weeks in a makeshift camp along Highway 1806 near Standing Rock in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s protest over the Dakota Access Pipeline. Tensions have been building and now the US Army Corp of Engineers has notified the protesters that they must be gone by December 5. The Corp notified the tribe that anyone found in the protest area after that date will be deemed a trespasser and subjected to federal prosecution. The Corp says closure of the area is “necessary to protect the general public from violent confrontations between protesters and law enforcement officials that have occurred in the area, and to prevent death, illness, and serious injury to inhabitants of the encampments due to the harsh North Dakota winter conditions.” Say what? WTF?

standing-rock_2016

Sounds like the Corp is preparing to send in the cavalry and clear the area one way or the other in the fashion of General Custer! Yet, they are trying to glaze their next move over by appearing to be “humanitarian” when, in fact, I’m sure they are NOT! In response Standing Rock tribal chairman Dave Archambault, Jr released a statement of his own saying the tribe is deeply disappointed by the Corps latest move BUT it does not change the tribe’s resolve to prevent the pipeline from being built north of reservation lands. He also said it was “unfortunate and ironic” that the Corp chose the very next day after Thanksgiving to issue its THREAT against encamped tribal members and supporters. Chairman Archambault also said in the statement that the Corps statement is “saddening” but “NOT at all surprising given the last 500 years of the treatment of our people!” He went on to say, “We have suffered much.” And indeed the Sioux have as have all other Native Americans under the Western Corporatist Jackboot!!

The Corp says they’ve set up a “free speech zone” nearby which is basically an absolute CROCK OF SHIT imo! Yeah you can go there and say anything you want and I guarantee you it will fall on completely DEAF EARS because the Fascist¬†Corporatist behind the pipeline are going to build it no matter what! After all, they’re all about MONEY and could NOT care less about human lives ESPECIALLY NATIVE AMERICAN LIVES!!

Opponents of the pipeline have been protesting for months over the $3.8 billion dollar project. They say the pipeline could harm (poison) drinking water and will encroach on tribal Sacred Sites. Clashes between protesters and police have already taken place over the past few months and protesters have even been pepper sprayed by police.

The scope of tribal resistance to the pipeline is unprecedented exceeding almost all previous protests in Native American history in the US. But, Native Americans have been fighting the government for a long time now to protect their lands and THE LAND. In this current protest they’ve gained support from Code Pink and Black Lives Matter as well as support from environmentalists and several activists groups from around the country and world. They have also gained strong support from almost every other Native American tribe in the US. Continue reading

EPA Succeeds in Poisoning Water Supply in US Southwest!!!

Animas River Durango Colo 2015I’m sure you’ve all heard about it by now unless you’ve been living in a cave and if you’re buying the official “party line” then you must be living in a cave. ¬†What am I talking about? ¬†Well it seems that the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency—keyword “protection”) released millions of gallons of toxic waste into the rivers of the American southwest last week and those rivers have turned an ugly neon orange now as they are filled with lead, arsenic, and a few other goodies making their way through the river systems of the SW down to the Colorado River killing everything along the way. ¬†And, of course, it was all “accidental” says the EPA.

Now don’t get me wrong. ¬†Accidents do happen but something on this scale? ¬†The EPA will pay for clean up operations but damage control got underway right away as EPA officials moved to get Navajos and other Native American peoples to sign waivers stating they’d get x-amount now but nothing more in the future. ¬†WTF? ¬†Navajo tribal officials are outraged over the EPA ploy (read con-job) and they have come right out and said the federal government is attempting to “swindle” them just like they have so many times in the past. ¬†I wholeheartedly agree!

It all began near Silverton, Colorado when an EPA led team “accidentally” ¬†pulled the plug on 3 million gallons of toxic waste water and the disaster has now spread down river from Colorado, into New Mexico, into Utah, and heading into Arizona. ¬†The toxic waste was from an old gold mine. ¬†Thus far at least two rivers have been shut down completely. ¬†Last Wednesday and EPA “cleanup” team (cleanup? ¬†you can’t be serious) used heavy equipment (read bulldozers, etc) to breach a dam at the mine. ¬†That’s when the “accident” happened and sent 5 million gallons of orange toxic waste into America’s southwestern river systems. ¬†The waste immediately flowed into a nearby creek and made its way down into a river near Durango, Colorado and then onward into the river systems. ¬†The old abandoned gold mine is known as the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colorado.

The toxic waste flowed into the Animas River near Durango and then down into the San Juan River. ¬†Since last Wednesday SEVEN public water supplies have been shut off in Colorado and New Mexico. ¬†EPA Administrator said the accident is “tragic ¬†and very unfortunate” and that’s about all she could offer for an apology. ¬†Yet I can’t help but wonder why no heads are rolling! ¬†Not one person FIRED over this? ¬†Oh yes, they protect their own don’t they?

McCarthy, the EPA administrator told reporters that the EPA is “taking responsibility to ensure that the spill is cleaned up.” ¬†That wouldn’t be like the EPA taking responsibility for cleaning up the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico a few years back would it? ¬†God help us all if so! ¬†The EPA blew that one and, sadly, I already see some of the same ploys at work in this most recent environmental DISASTER. ¬†That is, damage control already under way, telling the public there’s nothing to worry about, and now EPA officials saying the rivers are “restoring themselves.” ¬†WTF? Recall in the BP oil spill they said the same thing? ¬†The EPA said the Gulf was restoring itself yet an ABC reporter and news program sent a sub under the Gulf water and found that the Gulf had NOT cleaned itself up but that all of the oil simply sunk to the bottom! ¬†And the Gulf is STILL experiencing the damage done! ¬†And let me not forget to mention the “strange” health problems people along the gulf begin experiencing (all of which are signs of being exposed to massive amounts of toxic btw). ¬†And need I mention all of the wildlife, birds, and fish that were slaughtered not only by the BP spill but the toxic chemical the EPA sprayed over the area in a futile effort to clean the mess up?

Pope Calls for Global REVOLUTION!!

Pope Francis has called for a global revolution to save and fix the earth and the global “perverse” economy!! ¬†If you’re thinking he is calling for an armed revolt think again. ¬†The Pope is calling for a global CULTURAL REVOLUTION in order to correct the world’s “structurally perverse” economic system by which the rich exploit the poor to no end and with the result being the wholesale turning of our planet into an “immense pile of filth.” ¬†Amen to that!!

Pope Francis

Pope Francis

The Pope stated his position in the latest Papal Manifesto aimed at spurring that highly CORRUPT body known as the UN into taking action in the areas of climate change, domestic politics, and everyday life in general. ¬†Regarding climate change the Pope blames it on an unfair, fossil fuel based industrial model that he says harms the poor the most. ¬†In the manifesto he urges ALL PEOPLE of ALL FAITHS or NO faith to experience an awakening to save God’s creation for our future generations.

What the Pope’s Manifesto is, is essentially an indictment against the global Fascist Corporatists and those who like to claim there’s nothing wrong with our global climate. ¬†Pope Francis said that half-way measures simply delay the looming disaster on a global scale. ¬†He said we need to “redefine” our “notion of progress.” ¬†The manifesto is the first Papal encyclical on the environment. ¬†It is being hailed as a game changer in getting people to think about our impact on the environment and our global economic system which is nothing short of a system of exploitation of the poor and working classes. ¬†Of course the Corporatist fossil fuel energy system was quick to criticize the manifesto saying that “energy is the essential building block of the modern world.” ¬†Sadly, I think they’ve missed the point as usual. What is being called for is NOT the elimination of energy and the throwing back of the human race into the Stone Age but a revamping of what we use to produce energy such as changing from fossil fuels to energies like solar, water, wind, etc. ¬†Also being called for is a redistribution of wealth and an end to the rich exploiting the poor and working classes at every turn.
