Ice Caps Melting Fast: Say Goodbye to the Big Apple?
By Paul Brown, AlterNet
Posted on October 10, 2007, Printed on October 11, 2007
It is hard to shock journalists and at the same time leave them in awe of the power of nature. A group returning from a helicopter trip flying over, then landing on, the Greenland ice cap at the time of maximum ice melt last month were shaken. One shrugged and said:"It is too late already."
What they were all talking about was the moulins, not one moulin but hundreds, possibly thousands. "Moulin" is a word I had only just become familiar with. It is the name for a giant hole in a glacier through which millions of gallons of melt water cascade through to the rock below. The water has the effect of lubricating the glaciers so they move at three times the rate that they did previously.
Some of these moulins in Greenland are so big that they run on the scale of Niagra Falls. The scientists who accompanied these journalists on the trip were almost as alarmed. That is pretty significant because they are world experts on ice and Greenland in particular. We were visiting Ilulissat, Greenland, once a stronghold of Innuit hunters but now with so little ice that the dog sleds are in danger of falling through even in the depth of winter. But it is not the lack of sea ice that worries scientists and should be of serious concern to the inhabitants of coastal zones across the world. Cities like New York and states like Florida are in the front line.
Scientists know this already, but just to give you some idea of the problem, the Greenland ice cap is melting at such a fast rate it is triggering earthquakes as pieces of ice several cubic kilometres in size break up.
Scientists say the acceleration of melting and subsequent speeding up of giant glaciers could be catastrophic in terms of sea level rise and make previous predictions published this year by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) far too low. The glacier at Ilulissat, which it is believed spawned the iceberg which sank the Titantic, is now flowing three times faster into the sea than it was 10 years ago.
Robert Correll, chairman of the Artic Climate Impact Assessment, from Washington told me:"We have seen a massive acceleration of the speed with which these glaciers are moving into the sea. The ice is moving at 2 metres an hour on a front five kilometres long and 1,500 metres deep. "That means that this one glacier puts enough fresh water into the sea in one day to provide drinking water for a city the size New York or London for a year."
Professor Correll, who is also director of the global change programme at the Heinz Centre in Washington said the estimates of sea level rise in the IPCC report in February had been "conservative" and based on data two years old. The range of rise this century had been predicted to be 20 to 60 centimetres, but would be the upper end of this range at a minimum and some now believed it could be two metres. This would have catastrophic effects for European and US coastlines.
He said newly invented ice penetrating radar showed that the melt water was pouring through to the bottom of the glacier creating a melt water lake 500 metres deep causing the glacier "to float on land. "These melt water rivers are lubricating the glacier, like applying oil to a surface and causing it to slide into the sea. It is causing a massive acceleration which could be catastrophic."
The glacier is now moving at 15 kilometres a year into the sea although in periodic surges it moves even faster. He has seen a surge, which he had measured as moving five kilometres in 90 minutes - an extraordinary event.
If all of Greenland melts, something we were previously assured would take thousands of years, but now could be hundreds, then sea level round the world would rise seven metres. That is without any contribution from the Antarctic, the glaciers of Alaska, the Rockies, the Himalayas, or the ocean water expanding as it warms.
So the talk of sea level rise should not be in centuries, it should be decades or perhaps even single years. For 10,000 years, during all of human civilisation sea level remained stable leading us to believe that coastlines remained roughly in the same place. A century ago the sea began to rise one millimetre a year, 20 years ago it had reached two millimetres and this century it has risen to 3 millimetres. This annual rise may not seem much but add hurricane storm surges and high tides and we are soon saying good bye to a lot of coastal settlements -- like the Big Apple.
Switch forward a week from the helicopter ride to George W. Bush's meeting of 16 of the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in Washington last month and what do we hear. We hear lots of rhetoric about how, along with terrorism, climate change is the biggest threat to the earth -- although the catastrophic sea level rise facing our major coastal cities does not rate a mention.
But instead of decisive political action (as with terrorism) we get suggestions from the President of voluntary cuts in emissions, down to the government of each country, and then next summer another conference to discuss where we have got to -- which on past form will be nowhere at all. It did not sound like the much needed change of heart from the President, but just another delaying tactic to tide him over until his term of office ends.
Although it may sound like it, the commentators in Europe are not singling out America for criticism, although it has to be said as often as possible that the US is the world's most profligate nation when it comes to fossil fuel consumption, AND has rejected the only legally binding international agreement that could do something about it. But Europeans are not doing enough either. We need convincing that our own leaders have enough political will to reach the tiny Kyoto targets that are the minimum first step to tackling this problem. The public hears the latest scientists' warnings that an 80% cut in greenhouse gas emissions is needed if we are to stave off catastrophic climate change, yet wait in vain for the policies needed to achieve them.
In my book, protestors wearing George Bush masks are pictured "fiddling while the earth burns." Maybe he is just the lead violinist of the orchestra.

THE STORM OF FRIDAY, JUNE 8TH, 2007
Where I live temporarily, the scenery is lovely, the wildlife is heavy and active, and the people have I.Q.'s right around the daily temperatures... in the springtime. The advantage to being on the west side of the Appalachian Mountain Range is that, it will be one of the stablest places in America when the changes take full effect. The Earth is warming up in all kinds of ways. The actual temperature is increasing to the point where mountains are wiping off their glacial- and snow covered peaks, and keeping them clear. The water is not being retained as it usually is, in solid ice or ice-chilled fresh water lakes. The massive ice caps of both Antarctica and Greenland are being changed as we speak. The rate of ice mellt is even startling sciientists as it appears to be increasing.
But the important thing is the storm fronts and their intensity. Coming from the Midwest, I'm conditioned to the plains effects, thunderstorms that can last all day and sometimes severe rains. Most of the time however, nature is always at balance between the cool dry high pressure conditions and high moisture, low pressure cloudy thunderstorms that always bring good rains.
Driving through one of the perfect examples of the "Rust Belt" cities, with their unemployment and rusting out factories, it sort of reminds me of Detroit's downtown. A most depressing area with no growth, low housing prices you wouldn't believe and an exodus of anything with a brain. Friday night of two weeks ago, a storm went through that actually got me worried. I chanced upon the actually rush of strong air like a hurricane I hit years ago in Florida. My car, an old Lincoln Town Car, was buffeted about like it was an economy car and not a 4,500-lb. tank.
As I watched, walls of water were coming down from west to east in waves of wind that created unique patterns against objects, completely missing the north-south streets. Newspaper vending machines, tore out their moorings and began dancing across Market Street with no regard to pedestrians. First the street lights, which had gone on due to the darkness, went out. Then the stop lights went dead and night came early that lovely springtime day. No lights except for the headlights of cars, which were hard to see. The sound of the wind was deafining to say the least. You couldn't crack open a window without being drenched.
Turning to the west, I tried to drive four blocks to drop off a friend to the safety of an office building. I could barely see 1-15 feet in front of my car. Every stoplight I hit, I crawled through it mainly because I could swear that it was being lifted off the ground. The brakes barely had no effect. Those were 80-100 m.p.h. winds with gusts higher than that. Numerous windows were shattered as objects in the air found their targets. Yeap, definitely Florida weather! What the heck was it doing in eastern Ohio?
A few days later, going from the University where I'm doing a lot of financial research and using their computers, to many restaurants that I frequent, almost no one who has lived here for at least 30-40 years could remember such a storm. One had been in a tornado once and it was exactlly like that except for the sound. It wasn't the same roaring train equivalent as they remembered experiencing. The number of old growth trees in town that were leveled was significant. One even chased me when I got out of the valley and up to the top of a hill. An old oak I believe, with about a 4-5 foot diameter trunk - 70 feet high, came right for my Lincoln. I didn't know they had an affinity for each other. I also know that the scary, "heart dropping through the floorboard feeling" like in hitting black ice, came back immediately. Why? Because the car could barely move as it was lifted off the ground a little by the 8-10" of water I was in, at the 'TOP' of the hill! But I got enough traction to move to just see that oak come down where I had been seconds before.
At this point, being only about a mile from my domicile, I felt relaxed.... except for the loud sound of shots being fired. No they weren't! That happens around here before or after the 4th of July, for real. It was actually hail, about 3/4 inches in size up to 3" in size that had me worried. It literally sounded like shots hitting the metal and glass of my roof. Somehow I managed to get home and parked under an old oak for my car's sake, without a single piece of glass broken. Amazing! The fail rate of every part attached to the engine had been reached the last three years, being replaced with more garbage quality new parts. Everything! But the sunroof held and didn't shatter! All the side windows, front and rear sloped glass stayed intact even though they were pummeled..... And no dents even!
All in all, a brief little 20-25 minute drive turned into a survival situation I never intended to experience in this location.
In a tropical location, yes I can understand that. But not in Appallachia-land where the women look like Sasquatch and the men make sheep scared. I just had to report that change of weather is occuring right on track, to more severe than anyone believs.

November 2, 2006 - No More Seafood After 2048?
"At this point 29 percent of fish and seafood species have collapsed -
that is, their catch has declined by 90 percent. It is a very clear trend, and it is
accelerating. If the long-term trend continues, all fish and seafood
species are projected to collapse within my lifetime -- by 2048."
- Boris Worm, Ph.D., Dalhousie University, Halifax
The journal, Science, reports that Dr. Boris Worm and his research team at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, have studied United Nations fish and invertebrate data from 1950 to 2003, plus another longer 1,000-year-long data archive in archaeology and old fishing records. Dr. Worm said he was "shocked and disturbed by how consistent the trends are in declining species - beyond anything we suspected." The complete collapse of fish and seafood industries could occur in four decades.

October 24, 2006 - Greenland Ice Loss Much Greater Now Than Gain.
"With this new analysis, we observe dramatic ice mass losses concentrated
in the low-elevation coastal regions, with nearly half of the loss coming from
southeast Greenland. In the 1990's the ice was very close to balance with gains
at about the same level as losses. That situation has now changed significantly,
with an annual net loss of ice equal to nearly six years of average
water flow from the Colorado River." - Scott Luthcke, Ph.D.,
NASA Goddard's Planetary Geodynamics Laboratory
Recently, Greenland's massive ice sheet has lost
nearly 100 gigatons of ice annually, much of it in low-elevation
regions along the continent's southeastern coast, including the southern
tip (pictured here). Credit: NASA MODIS Land Rapid Response Team.
NASA: "For the first time NASA scientists have analyzed data from direct, detailed satellite measurements to show that ice losses now far surpass ice gains in the shrinking Greenland ice sheet. Using a novel technique that reveals regional changes in the weight of the massive ice sheet across the entire continent, scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., report that Greenland's low coastal regions lost 155 gigatons (41 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2003 and 2005 from excess melting and icebergs, while the high-elevation interior only gained 54 gigatons (14 cubic miles) annually from snowfall."

October 3, 2006 - Largest Antarctic Ozone Hole On Record.
"Such significant ozone loss requires very low temperatures
in the stratosphere combined with sunlight. This year’s extreme loss of ozone can be explained by the temperatures above Antarctica reaching the lowest recorded
in the area since 1979." - Claus Zehner, ESA Atmospheric Engineer
Ozone measurements made by ESA's Envisat satellite
have revealed the ozone loss of 40 million tons on October 2, 2006,
has exceeded the previous record ozone loss of about 39 million tons in 2000.

Scientists have become increasingly aware of possible links between ozone depletion and climate change. Increased atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases will lead to a warmer climate at the Earth’s surface. Simultaneously, at altitudes where the ozone layer is found, more cooling of the atmosphere occurs, increasing the chemical reactions that destroy ozone.
At the same time, the amount of water vapor in the stratosphere has been increasing at the rate of about 1% per year. A wetter and colder stratosphere means more polar stratospheric clouds, which could lead to more severe ozone loss in both polar region

September 26, 2006 - Global Average Temperature Near Warmest in A Million Years.
Global average temperature is within one degree Celsius
of the maximum temperature of the past million years. This color-coded map
shows how temperatures changed on average from 2001 to 2005. 2005 was the warmest
ranked year on record. Dark red indicates the greatest warming and purple
indicates the greatest cooling. Graphic courtesy NASA.
James Hansen, Ph.D., Atmospheric Physicist, NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Columbia University, New York City, states in the most recent Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: "Earth is now reaching and passing through the warmest levels in the current interglacial period. That means that further global warming of 1 degree Celsius defines a critical level. If warming is kept less than that, effects of global warming may be relatively manageable. During the warmest interglacial periods the Earth was reasonably similar to today. But if further global warming reaches 2 or 3 degrees Celsius, we will likely see changes that make Earth a different planet than the one we know. The last time it was that warm was in the middle Pliocene, about three million years ago, when sea level was estimated to have been about 25 meters (80 feet) higher than today."

May 10, 2006 - Tibet Glaciers Rapid Melt Linked to China Sandstorms and Drought. 46,298 Glaciers Are Melting At Unprecedented Rate of 7% Ice Loss Per Year.
Komolo Glacier on Tibet plateau. The plateau has 46,298 glaciers which cover
about 60,000 square miles at an average height of 13,000 feet above sea level.

The Tibet plateau glaciers have one-sixth of all the world's ice. But those glaciers, which cover about 60,000 square miles at an average height of 13,000 feet above sea level, are melting at the unprecedented rate of 7% per year, triggering drought, desertification and sandstorms in other regions, including China. So far in 2006, China has had thirteen sandstorms. One in mid-April dumped 330,000 tons of sand on Beijing. More than 10 million people, mainly in northern China, are trying to survive a severe drought and lack of drinking water the past month.
The magnitude of the sandstorm that 'hit' Beijing is made more extreme by the estimates of 330,000 tons deposited on the capital city by one storm. I'm sure the countryside that was primarily farms, got lower priority and lost all that black loam earth to the sand covering.
The North Pole, July 2004 - Temperature 54 F. _________________________________________________________________________________
The World Heritage and Climate Change meeting in Paris this week (March 13, 2006) had one proposal put forward to designate Montana's Glacier National Park as a "world heritage site in danger" due to global warming. Dr. Daniel Fagre, a federal research scientist based at Glacier National Park says that in 1850, the park had 150 glaciers. Today, there are only 27 left, with estimates that all the glaciers will be gone by 2030. The trees are responding, the soil carbon, the streams, all of these are responding to the climate change.
Grandfather Mountain, N. Carolina - Wind gusts hit 200+ m.p.h. Jan. 25, 2006.
Workers at Grandfather Mountain, a tourist center gap in the Appalachian mountains, saw many gusts of wind on their anenometer at that speed, but could have been higher as that's the device's limit. The gusts knocked down trees and power lines across the foothills and mountains. It lifted a 300-pound boulder, which was cemented to the parking lot, to roll over.
EARTH WARMING IS A PRECURSER TO A POSSIBLE POLE SHIFT
THE EARTH'S MAGNETIC POLES ARE ALREADY SHIFTING
Earth's radiation factor. Both the oceans and the continents
are showing signs of warming by every measure possible.
In the last two months (this is being written in November, 2005), the world has seen three more unusual typhoon-class storms ravage the underbelly of America. In 2004, four typhoons or hurricanes attacked Florida in unusual movements with one doing a reversal loop in the Atlantic Ocean (Ivan), and coming back in again. Another storm last year went below the equator to hit South America, which is almost unheard of in recorded history. This is because of the Coriolis effect on rotational vortexes on planet earth’s rotation. (They shouldn’t cross the equator because of the E.M. energy on their initial push or movement, no less than five degrees from the equator. Counter-clockwise in the N. hemisphere; clockwise in the S. hemisphere.) Plus, at least two of the four that hit Florida in 2004 had five-spokes in the “eye” as seen by satellite imagery on live satellite TV. This year, hurricane Wilma had a perfectly stylized “2” in its center by cloud/radar imagery – a near impossibility.) I made hard copies of all these to save in my files to verify their existence.
Back in May 2005, I wrote a long piece showing the extremes for real estate overvaluation pricing for the six Bubble Cities of this decade – Miami, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. The major demographic force behind all this easy money flowing into bricks and mortar, or pine and plastic (depending on the type of house you bought), is retirees seeking to avoid snow, “6-month snowbirds,” as well as domestic drug laundered or stolen foreign money coming onshore (i.e. Russian Oligarch Mafia in Florida, etc.) rushing into these warm city, coastal enclaves and hi-tech dynamic cities like San Fran or Palo Alto.
The closest thing to monitoring this Real Estate Bubble is by checking on total amounts of assessed fees for turnover of titles, which I can’t seem to find, in these warm city localities. The next closest chart of housing prices, with inflation adjusted prices I could find is about five months old, from the National Realtors Assn. But the magnitude of the dollar volume of real estate title turnover is intensive. The sharp increase of compounded values the last two years, especially in Florida, up 18-20-25 % yr. is indicative of a “buying price spike.” But Phoenix is definitely in the running with an estimated plus 45 % yr.-on-yr. gain. A parallel movement of prices for this pattern has just occurred in the crude oil, gasoline and heating oil. So now you “market price experts” know what to look for, as well as expect on the downside.
"CHEMTRAILS" -- MAN'S CONTRIBUTION TO MAN'S DESTRUCTION
Ever since 1998, there has ongoing a major 'operation' by the military that they officially totally deny. It is the constant seeding of our clear sky areas by hundreds of military, modified cargo jets, every day spraying hemicals into the atmosphere, usually at altitudes of high-20,000s to 40,000 feet. These chemicals have been caught by private scientists who have air filtering and analyzing capacity. Common articles by the main stream media (MSM) often refer to Dr. Edwin Teller as the most logical explanation for controlling the Sun's exceptional warming capacity some years ago. Unfortunately, this answer is just a guess and not correct. The reason why? The nature of the chemicals used, is usually harmful to humans and affects animals, let alone the nature of the topsoil.
Such chemicals are:
WEATHER MANIPULATION BY SIX GOVERNMENTS AND
AT LEAST ONE RENEGADE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION
Financial markets are not the only things being manipulated in plain view. There
is an extensive amount of information on the last fifty years being the time that Nikola Tesla’s advanced knowledge of electricity and energy (especially scalar wave technology and free energy) has been put into use by several governments. The U.S., Russia, France, England, Japan and possibly China are into weather modification for both agricultural- as well as military uses. I could write a book on our (America’s) military’s extensive involvement in this, which is a byproduct of our government’s profligate spending. Everyone from NASA, the U.S.D.A., H.A.A.R.P., G.W.E.N., P.O.L.E.X., A.I.D.J.E.X., the Air Force, Marines, Army and Navy have their own weather programs. The Office of Naval Intelligence (most involved with the E.T. craft, agendas, etc.) is the dominant force behind the current chemtrails or constant chemical spraying over the continental areas. Private research is also there but on a much more restricted level.
THE GREENLAND ICE CAP, IN RAPID MELT -- 2004
The five dark objects above are men on a mission to measure the ice melt on the Greenland ice
cap, 2004. This is one of many rivers formed by extensive solar radiation and earth warming
turning the ice into numerous rivers flowing into the North Atlantic. Once off the ice cap, the
water does not return except as light snow. The hundreds of rivers flow day and night, 24
hours a day, seven days a week, continuously. Full melt would raise the ocean's levels by 16-
20 feet worldwide.
WEATHER EXPERIMENTS & CONTROLS
1940s-50s - Hurricane seeding with dry ice, by military planes. In the late 1940s, in an attempt to disrupt or dissolve a storm in the Atlantic, the lopsided spraying and resultant disgorging of moisture caused one to slam into Savannah, Georgia. About 45 dead and millions of dollars of damage occurred. From this time forward, all experiments along these lines are kept quiet and denial becomes the order of the day. This policy of denial (lying) becomes the standard procedure of all military agencies as well as the O.S.S./C.I.A. covert agendas. That way, they can do whatever they want without being held responsible. Also, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.) was created to attract the top physicists and meteorologists in the world to study and reduce hurricane damage. In August 1969, Hurricane Debbie was seeded five times one day, reducing the wind speed from 115 m.p.h. to 80 m.p.h. Two days later, another seeding decreased wind speed to less than 100 m.p.h. again.
1960s/&70s -The Vietnam Police Action (was never declared a ‘War’ by Congress) saw extensive experimentation of using chemicals and U.L.F. to make typhoons drop their rain over enemy territory to disrupt their movements. In effect, the government was trying to increase windspeed and quantity of rainfall to do extreme damage.
1971 – The United States and Soviet Union began secret cooperation on world weather engineering. In 1972, both countries’ scientific teams conducted the Polar Experiment of the Global Atmospheric Research Program – P.O.L.E.X. By 1973, both nations secretly cooperated on A.I.D.J.EX. – the Artic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment. They’ve been in close activity ever since. From 1968 through 1973, the weather in Chicago, Illinois, always had arctic fronts (0 degrees to –20 d. F.) go through the last week of December, just like clockwork.
1962-83s – Project Storm Fury, the U.S. government’s project set up to discover how to control hurricanes began in earnest. More recently, the pouring of tens of gallons of vegetable oil onto the sea to disrupt high evaporation of very warm waters has been attempted. (If ever implemented on a full time basis, just go long soybean oil and roll positions into the future. We had/still have over 24 hurricanes this year alone I believe. That’s a lot of soy sauce!) (No relation to the 1963 “Salad Oil Scandal” perpetrated by Tony DeAngelis, New Jersey.)
1968-72 - Russia experimented with two extremely powerful 20 million watt transmitters, one near Riga in Latvia, the other close to Moscow. In an attempt to disrupt the weather’s jet stream flow over the U.S., they pushed it away from their virgin lands area, a marginally productive area that they were trying to make stable for future food production. Total crop failure there forced them to go to the world market and purchase some 25 million metric tons of animal protein feed. The U.S. became the recipient of this weather/offensive manipulation by filling this demand, the largest export order ever seen in the world (October 1972).
1976 - The Soviet “Woodpecker Grid” becomes active; at the 10 Hz. E.L.F. level. This was so described because of its sound effects. Using three 40-million watt radio transmitters, this was intended to really disrupt weather patterns, create drought or flooding by interfering with the normal front locations in the different seasons. There is a global circuit called the “Wilson circuit,” in which the ionosphere is maintained at a positive potential in the range of 200-300 kilovolts, relative to the earth. The circuit is completed between the conducting earth and the bases of thunderclouds. This massive free energy was discovered by Nicola Tesla in the 1890s, and tapped into via his experiments. To understand the power behind these transmitters, check the radio stations in your area. The strongest have their rating at around 50,000 watts. Compare that to a 40-million watt transmitter.
1980s - The federal government’s Ground Wave Emergency Network (G.W.E.N.) was created supposedly to give the government communications in the case of an atomic war. But some researchers say it also has weather modification as its intended purpose. Because of the Star wars special budget considerations, Reagan politics, etc., no exacting source of credible intel on this construction can be found. It has also been suggested that we aided Hussein in his war on Iran with weather manipulation, from 1980-88. Because of the regime change in Tehran in 1978-79, the taking of U.S. hostages, etc., we sold arms, fighters, poison gas, etc. to Iraq as well as used weather disruption for our new ‘friend.’
1993 - The “Great Midwestern Flood” of the U.S. essentially has been shown to be a
byproduct of both U.S.- and Russian weather targeting. For 49 days straight, from June 11th on, rain fell in exceptional amounts in all areas in about 8-9 states, outside of the Army Corp of Engineers’ planned floodplain areas. The saturated ground created a standing water problem that some hydrologists called the “Sixth Great Lake.” A blocking pattern or stalled front over the upper Midwest forced this excessive rainfall to saturate normal farmland (20,000,000 acres) as to be unplantable (bullish for crop prices) and destroyed much as the walls of water filled the Mississippi Rivers floodplains to the point of breaking 1,000+ levies.
1990-94 - Project H.A.A.R.P. (High frequency Active Auroral Research Program)
begins in earnest, in Gakona, Alaska, to broadcast U.L.F. frequencies into the ionosphere for various experiments. This was planned as originally part of Pres. Reagan’s Star Wars Initiative defense system. It was formulated by Dr. Bernard Eastlund, who actually owns the patents on the wave plasma physics he created, to modify weather and use the ionosphere as a communications device. It is managed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research, on a D.O.D. location. Eastlund’s research is also tuned to artificial generation of acoustic- and gravitational waves in the atmosphere. This enables one to move hurricanes and mesocyclones at will, theoretically.
1998 -Operation Cloverleaf starts. Massive aerial spraying by planes controlled by
the Office of Naval Intelligence has saturated our skies with various chemicals of a life-impacting nature, mainly on our immune systems. Barium particulates, aluminum particulates, red blood cells, plastic polymers, etc. all have been detected by private air quality scientists. There is a total denial on this weather modifying activity on the part of every level of federal government and military agency to date. Even top lawmakers have been stonewalled as to their existence, the planes creating these poisonous sprayings in plain view and the obvious chemtrail patterns criss-crossing in the sky.
1998 - A renegade criminal organization called the AUM Shinrikyo (“the Supreme
Truth”), made famous for their massive Sarin poison gas attack on a Tokyo subway killing thousands, have been fingered as using Tesla scalar wave technology to disrupt several countries economies. Blackmailing of the Tokyo government has netted them $ 1 billion in gold annually. This splinter group from the Japanese Yakusa merged with an offshoot of the old K.G.B. of Soviet cold war agents, to perform some of these actions. Check out Lt. Col. Tom Beardon’s esite “Cheniere.”
1998 - Solar Power Satellite based systems have been designed for a power output of
1,000 megawatts. Dr. Bernard Eastlund, the astrophysicist who has the patent under which H.A.A.R.P. operates, stated back then, acknowledges that the project on the ground are to go to 980 KW then, with plans to ultimately go to 3.6 MW. The H.A.A.R.P. antenna as it is now configured modulates the auroral electrojet to induce E.L.F. waves and thus, could have an effect on the Zonal winds.
2004 - Out of an exceptionally large number of hurricanes, four did proceed to
‘attack’ Florida with severe results. One, called Ivan – a Russian name uniquely enough, did a mysterious U-turn and re-charged the Florida land mass. A certain meteorologist, who is quite familiar with normal behavior of storms, began calling them “HAARPICANES.” This was a clear inference to the military complex in Alaska as having some responsibility for the storms’ paths. The unique path of one hurricane took a right turn, when it had been heading for the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, going up the Naples/Ft. Myers Caloosahatchee River, and then up the center of Florida. This is not normal as storms “feed” off of the hot water evaporation for their life’s energy. Another clear sign they are being ‘directed’ as used to do deliberate damage.
2005 - Hurricane Katrina (note: another Russian name) was a given actress! By
this, it was obvious that nothing was normal about her path. It went exactly over the National Hurricane Center in Florida, moved generally into the Gulf of Mexico, paused and then, sent on its way northwards. It veered slightly right going into the oilrigs and refineries owned by British Petroleum, that is, by the British monarchy.
Does anyone here know that your Congress created and funded with $ 10 million, another bureaucratic federal agency from enacted legislation entitled “Weather Modification Research & Technology Transfer Act of 2005?” I read the details of it, and it follows the same path of being an appointee-structured political top of a far larger bureaucracy in the future. It gives legal standing to what the government has been doing for over fifty years, with varying results. It was passed October 1st, 2005!
The constant idiot claims by TV’s “talking heads” is a heads-up sign that you (the masses out in idiot-tubeland) should believe that the passage of these storms over the oil platform areas in the Gulf, then the refineries in the Louisiana-Texas area including the Beaumont oilfield in E. Texas, and Houston, etc., gives a valid “excuse” for higher crude, gasoline and heating oil prices. In common language, this is a form of propaganda and brainwashing – repeating a statement that just isn’t true over and over and over again. Natural gas prices, the tightest or most bullish by their chart action, are in this group as well! Does this make you think, that this was an Intel operation, ordered by some powerful interests, in an attempt via their Monopoly (the M-word!) to raise gross revenue and profits before the U.S. dollar shrinks to sharply lower levels? A lower dollar drops their gross revenue as world oil prices are quoted in dollars, and the purchase of U.S. treasury debt keeps the debt market intact, the money bankers in power and the federal government in absolute control. The actions by the federal government, against Venezuela, Iraq and Indonesia, all speak volumes.

THE BIGGEST POLLUTANT OF ALL
Man is not the main cause of the atmospheric heating, in my opinion. Two different factors are the dominant contributor to our planet's changing eco-system. First, the increased magnetic field and increased wandering has directly increased the ocean temperatures. The magnetic poles shifting may be a prelude to the axial- or rotational poles changing, which would be severe climatic change and shifts. Wars over food production and fertile land would become the norm. Second, throughout the world, rainforests and underground coal/oil deposits are burning, 24 hours a day, week after week, perpetually, contributing to the carbon monoxide pollution of our air and weather flows. Much of the rainforest burning is manmade and deliberate. Some is caused by lightning strikes. Cutting off access to oxygen in the air re these underground deposits is extremely difficult over such large land areas. In the state of Pennsylvania, known for large deposits of coal and oil, many fires have been going on for 40-60 years.
THE BIGGEST RIVER ON THE PLANET
In 1726, a young Benjamin Franklin was onboard a ship crossing the Atlantic, hundreds of miles from land, when the sea turned a dark blue and uniquely warm conditions prevailed. The meandering current he had chanced upon every experienced sailor knew of but coudln't explain was the Gulf Stream. Fishermen and the huge growth industry called 'whaling' had known about this giant river in the Atlantic ocean, as fish love to eat the plankton associated with the warm waters that came up from the Gulf of Mexico and the Carribbean Sea. Larger fish eat the plankton, and whales and other large mammals eat the fish.
Because of the effects of this monster conveyer belt of warm water as well as warm air masses, it decides the climate throughout the North Atlantic basin. London, England, is about 10 degrees further north than Franklin's Philidelphia, but with cool, damp foggy winter weather. Coming from Chicago, which is about the same latitude as Philadelphia, I just have to laugh at both urbanites talking about their weather "differences." With Lake Michigan giving us our 'warming effect,' a breezy, cold day is about -10/-20 degrees F. with a real biting wind that chills the soul..... Heh, heh, heh! And yes, I do have a Russian full length sheepskin coat for these fun times.
Europe had glaciers at the end of the last ice age about 12,000 years ago. England, N. Europe over France, Germany, Poland and Russia (Belaris/Ukraine) were all covered by monster glaciers. Because the Northern Ice Cap extended down to New York state in America and covered the upper half of Europe, it is believed something 'triggered' the climate to change the air and water currents. For those who've read extensively on this, it is well known that 'something' plowed into the earth from outside our sphere about that time, hitting the land area of North- and South Carolina mainly, coming from the Northwest towards the Southeast, breaking apart causing over 10,000 lakes and bogs with that orientation, continuing on into the Atlantic Ocean. Two depressions in the sea bottom lends credence that it was either a large meteorite or small moonlet that broke apart on atmospheric entry and sent impact waves out in all directions. It also shifted the axial rotational pole location from the Hudson Bay area (center of the ice mass, which explains the circular shape) to the Artic ocean location of today's geophysical North pole. The Gulf current managed to penetrate the ice cap in the Atlantic Ocean more and more, causing rapid melt and a catastrophic rise in ocean levels of about 300-350 feet, then continuing higher still to today's final 450-460' higher ocean level.
But the impulse energy and heat transfer of the Gulf Stream carried constantly higher temperatures into that new land called "Europe," now surrounded by more warm water than ever before as the mountain range/block called Gilbralter broke apart. Water rushed in to lowland areas which had been four decent sized lakes, and flooded them to the tune of another 450' depth. A massive lake in the upper, central part of Africa - Lake Tritonis (also called the Sea of Gazelles by archeologists who don't want to admit such knowledge was known by the Greeks) emptied out into the oceans, exposing a sandy bottom to the new prevailing dry winds. The sand began covering all arible land, destroying the savanna grasslands, turning Africa into the planet's biggest dessert. The cold-temperate, fur-covered mammals that dominated Europe were hunted to extinction. Elephants, mastodons, mammaths, wild boars, sabre-toothed tigers and other large carnivores were wiped out as Europe became warmer and domesticated by the migrating white race. The warm winds of winter covering this new continent, constantly being freshed with moist, warm air year round, changed the face of mankind forever. It took an estimated 100 years, some say a 1,000 years, to make this radical change.
Most importantly, the Gulf stream has an exchange of physical volume of water known as vortexes or 'storms' that swirl in a direction exchanging warm water for cold, etc. Located in the upper Atlantic and Greenland area, usually there are 10, 12 or even 15 of these vortexes happening on a grand scale. Today, tied into the extensive warming waters, there are now usually only two. These are needed to make a "balance" of the mass of physical water, returning underneath the warm, known river flow. World War II submarine captains knew this as they easily dropped down to the proper depth, and easily traveled along America's coastal area with the temperature acting as a sonar mirror giving them cover.
Even though a cursery view of an earth globe shows the Pacific Ocean having three times the size of water area, The Atlantic transports more heat northward than the Pacific. The reason is the salt in the Atlantic Ocean, having a higher salinity level, making the water heavier. Heavier water sinks faster. The sinking in the far North Atlantic pulls more warm water northward. This excels at moving more mass of water northward. With the warmer atmosphere, as well as the ozone holes in the artic areas letting in massive radiation, the ice cover is rapidly being attacked by the natural enemy of ice - warm air and sunlight. The picture higher up showing Greenland's ice cap melting aggressively, with water runoff going into the cean. Fresh water in the Canadian waters, around Greenland and Iceland is destroying the salinity levels of the Atlantic. If the cells or vortex system of water transfer collapses, expect the 'end' or change of the Gulf Stream, much higher ocean water levels and 'go short' London-, Paris- and Frankfurt futures. They won't be around much longer. The movie, "The Day After Tomorrow" is a perfectly real scenario that IS HAPPENING. It's not maybe! It is NOT science fiction. We just haven't completed the whole sequence of events yet. Oh yes, I've seen all sorts of different estimates for rising ocean levels. Greenland's ice sheet is extimated at another 16-18 feet of water worldwide. The Antarctic ice mass however is a tad more difficult to estimate (which is also melting aggresively), but is somewhere around 300-350 feet added increase of oceanic levels.
How many cities do you know of that have their walkways and roadways no higher than 15-20 feet above the oceans average level, tides not considered? If this scenario plays out in 10-40 years, unless major ports are reworked, the shipment of foodstuffs and grain will come to a near collapse, enhancing the starvation levels in numerous countries about the planet. If you can't load boats, you can't move grain foodstuffs.

THE EARTH ON FIRE
How many people know that Pennsylvania has the decided distinction of being the location of the largest number of continuously burning coal mine fires? Some for as long as 40-50 years, even creating sinking ground levels (subsidence) endangering whole towns? Centralia, PA, (formerly population 1,100), had a fire start due to someone burning garbage in the twon dump. Unfortunately, it spread to some underground coal seams, probably along the lines of abandoned coal shafts providing initial oxygen, then gaining access to the outside directly as parts of the earth dropped and opened up.
