If you weren’t paranoid before, it may be time to start paying attention.

“They” are spying on everything you do, and are collecting information about every purchase, appliance, vehicle or place you make, do or interact with. For the first time in history, we have arrived at a time when nearly everything is chipped, and almost everything is tracked.

It really is true, and it’s no longer a conspiracy theory.

They are spying on everyone, collecting all the available data and tracking you, your family and everyone you know. All the time.

And worst of all, it does matter, it will be used against you – for revenue collection, social control, fines, fees and evidence if necessary – even if you haven’t done anything wrong. Is it any wonder why many states have made living off the grid illegal, and have attempted to get everyone on the grid?

If you don’t conform to the habits of most Americans – and harvest alternative stores of power, fuel, food, water and supplies, then your energy use and digital footprint (or lack thereof) will cast you as a suspicious anomaly, worth of investigation, seizure of goods, subject to violations and codes, and NOT off the radar.

Meanwhile, your interaction with other people will intercept data about you and your activities even if you don’t carry a smart phone or wearables.

The extremes are already here. The murder case where police have sought data from an Alexa smart device is just the beginning of what is to come:

In what may ultimately lead to a precedent setting case and/or landmark court ruling, police in Arkansas have demanded that Amazon provide them with recordings made by an Amazon Echo device that was located in the home of murder suspect… (source)

Many other attempts have been made to microchip people, while the cashless grid has already found widespread acceptance.

Former CIA director David Petraeus admitted to the tech community that the Internet of Things (IoT) was about to become one of the greatest assets in the spy community – as an endless pool of data could turn the tables on any ‘persons of interest.’

In other words, maybe you. As Wired reported in 2012:

More and more personal and household devices are connecting to the internet, from your television to your car navigation systems to your light switches. CIA Director David Petraeus cannot wait to spy on you through them.

Earlier this month, Petraeus mused about the emergence of an “Internet of Things” — that is, wired devices — at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. […]

All those new online devices are a treasure trove of data if you’re a “person of interest” to the spy community. Once upon a time, spies had to place a bug in your chandelier to hear your conversation. With the rise of the “smart home,” you’d be sending tagged, geolocated data that a spy agency can intercept in real time

“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Petraeus said.

More and more of these smart chips are being integrated into absolutely every imaginable device.

Unless you are investing in vintage equipment, you will be buying into this system, even with basic appliances

An alarming report in 2013 highlighted concerns over some Chinese-made irons and tea kettles that included wireless spy chips… for purposes unknown, since these devices are not “smart” gadgets with computer interfaces and high-dollar functionality.

via AndroidHeadlines.com:

To this date, Qualcomm has shipped over a billion of Internet of Things (IoT) chipsets, the San Diego-based semiconductor manufacturer revealed on Tuesday. While speaking at the CES Unveiled press event yesterday, the company’s Senior Vice President of Product Management Raj Talluri said that the firm is already serving all segments of the IoT industry, from smart TVs and thermostats to connected speakers, wearables, and home assistants. Talluri specifically pointed out that smartphones and tablets aren’t included in the one billion figure.

Qualcomm’s impressive shipment numbers are mostly driven by the company’s presence in the wearable industry… numerous consumer electronics manufacturers are already implementing the cutting edge Snapdragon 835 chipset into their products…

As this chart demonstrates, the Internet of Things (IoT) will literally incorporate devices throughout consumer & home, retail, security and surveillance, IT and networking, transportation and industry, healthcare, energy

Notice that “Elderly and Children” are considered “things” in these digital tracking grid which otherwise incorporates refrigerators, stoves and smart appliances to share data and “spy” on individuals in their own homes.

And people are just another track and traceable part of the system.

It is absolute confirmation that “mark of the beast” technology is coming into full force – whether or not they will succeed in implanting microchips into people remains to be seen, but a major attempt is in the works.

In the meantime, there is now information about every move you, or any piece of “inventory” makes inside the system.

This isn’t just hypothetical talk.

This is the society that has been built.

Good luck avoiding it. You won’t avoid these devices by accident, it will take a lot of work to remain anonymous, off the grid, and out of their grasp.

As Sargent Survival at BeSurvival.com explains, getting out of the system is no easy task. Any serious attempt to “delete” yourself from the system actually go undetected would involve some very methodical footwork.

Not impossible, but not the default by any means:

  • There are 30 million plus surveillance cameras on the US, one camera for every ten Americans.
  • The average American is in 200 databases.
  • Putting a plan in motion to keep you from being tracked is a good idea if you want to devise a new life for yourself
  • Right before you leave, change your appearance significantly
  • Before you leave, terminate all of your accounts (email, bank accounts, credit cards, etc).
  • Don’t terminate your social network sites as you can use these sites to provide disinformation.
  • Before you leave, delete all of your computer files and get rid of your computer’s hard drive  – boil; smash; run a Degausser/ electromagnetic wand
  • Get rid of your cell phone or tablet as these can be easily used to track your location
  • Break your normal patterns (what you eat, where you frequent, how you shop, the kind of work you do, etc).
  • Completely change your lifestyle [and employment]
  • Pay for everything with cash.
  • Ditch your car and find a substitute; get rid of the toll pass which can track your movements
  • To change your identity … petition the court to change your name legally to a new–and common–name.
  • Apply for a driver’s license under your new name.
  • Buy a basic pre-paid cell phone (not a smart phone). Replace the pre-paid phone frequently, about every 2 weeks.
  • To get back online use a new laptop. Stay away from libraries!
  • Always use a hard wire to your laptop and turn off the wi-fi; reroute your ip address so your location can’t be determined
  • Be aware of the NSA spying and the ECHELON program in the US which monitors phone and computer transmissions for keywords and messages.
  • There are 70+ FUSION centers in the US which coordinate surveillance and other information.
  • Technology is now available to identify you by the way you walk, your facial measurements and biometrics
  • It will be 7 to 10 years before your old identity drops off of databases, if ever.
  • The less you interface with technology, the better off you will be.

Living off grid is a great dream, and a good principle to live by. Preparing to deal with emergencies and escape the danger zones in modern cities is essential. Using technology in this world comes with many advantages, but also some serious disadvantages.

Make sure that your use of technology is serving your purposes, and not giving you away during good times or bad.

By  – Natural News

(NaturalNews) According to survival expert James Wesley Rawles, a former Army intelligence officer who operates Survivalblog.com, Hillary Clinton’s loss is a win for common sense in America. But he also cautions that Trump’s victory has opened a door for globalist provocateur George Soros to continue to fund opposition groups and protests. Some anti-Trump activists have plans to force shut downs of transportation networks on Inauguration Day.

The entire year of 2017, according to Rawles, could be one of upheaval as globalist forces fight against Trump and his vision for a renewed America. As reported by Allnewspipeline.com, even though America just “dodged a serious bullet,” deep concerns remain about social unrest, banking, economic collapse, inflation and the potential for a Venezuelan-like starvation scenario. Rawles urges those listening to “double down” all preparations in 2017.

The coldest and most far-reaching arctic blast so far this season will spread across the majority of the contiguous United States next week.

Frigid air from the depths of the Arctic will plunge into the United States as the jet stream (a fast-river of air along which storms travel) drops southward.

The coldest days of next week will yield highs and lows of generally 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit below normal from the Northwest and Rockies to the Gulf and East coasts.

By Renee Duff – AccuWeather

A magnitude-7.8 earthquake jolted New Zealand early Sunday morning, generating a tsunami along the South Island’s northeast coast.

The earthquake struck 58 miles (93 km) north-northeast of Christchurch, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported.

The 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit near the coast and was a shallow quake with the epicenter occurring just 14.3 miles (23.0 km) below the earth’s surface, according to the USGS.

JUST WEEKS AFTER OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE ORDER ON CATASTROPHIC SPACE WEATHER EVENTS, A CORONAL MASS EJECTION IS SET TO HIT ON ELECTION DAY

Click here to view the original post.

220628-solar-flare-how-to-plan-for-thursday-s-sun-storm

By Melissa Dykes – The Daily Sheeple

This has already been the craziest election in the history of the country, with the most overt corruption and fraud the American people have likely ever seen.

Now, on top of everything else that’s scheduled to go down tomorrow, it is being projected that a powerful coronal mass ejection(CME) is set to hit Earth tomorrow, and not just hit earth but a direct hit is in our forecast.

According to Space Weather Live, “A coronal mass ejection (or CME) is a giant cloud of solar plasma drenched with magnetic field lines that are blown away from the Sun during strong, long-duration solar flares and filament eruptions.”

What this means is the very real potential for strong geomagnetic storms here on Earth. Potential storms from CMEs like this have been known to cause everything from lost satellite control to radio and television interference to power grid disruption and failure.

For example, in March 1989, a powerful CME caused strong variations in the Earth’s magnetic field which tripped circuit breakers in Québec’s power grid, causing a massive blackout.

What makes this timing even more unsettling is the fact that just weeks ago, Obama signed a brand new executive order on October 13, 2016 specifically regarding Department of Energy, Department of Defense, and Homeland Security coordination in handling “space weather events” as reported by Mac Slavo over at SHTFplan.com:

Via WhiteHouse.Gov

Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

What are the odds???

It’s not like CMEs and solar flares are anything new… so why all of a sudden are they saying we need to, “speed the creation of a space-weather-ready Nation” right before it comes out that just a geomagnetic disturbance might happen on election day?

Add to that the fact that recently Homeland Security was also talking about taking over the elections as a matter of national security…

Do they know something we don’t here? Either way, considering that most of our data on these things comes from government agencies, the timing definitely makes you wonder what shenanigans are going to get pulled tomorrow with our easily hacked electronic voting machines

Can’t you just see the “confusion” that could be caused by intermittent power outages on election day, all blamed on the sun?

And no matter what, it’s always good to be prepared.

“This Quickly Escalates Into Open Warfare” – Why The Government Is Preparing For Post-Election Chaos

Click here to view the original post.

urban-warfare

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

There have been a wide array of reports suggesting that the U.S. government is preparing military and Homeland Security assets for widespread election fall out. Given the mainstream media’s inclination towards Hillary Clinton and recently presented evidence that Democrat operatives have been attempting to illegally influence the ballot box through falsifying votes and electronic tampering, it appears that concerns surrounding a rigged election are not necessarily unfounded, as President Obama would have us believe.

With the election just days away, the fix appears to be in and some Americans are readying themselves for a confrontation should one be necessary.

As the most divisive presidential election in recent memory nears its conclusion, some armed militia groups are preparing for the possibility of a stolen election on Nov. 8 and civil unrest in the days following a victory by Democrat Hillary Clinton.

They say they won’t fire the first shot, but they’re not planning to leave their guns at home, either.

Trump has repeatedly warned that the election may be “rigged,” and has said he may not respect the results if he does not win. At least one paramilitary group, the Oath Keepers, has called on members to monitor voting sites for signs of fraud

 

Over the past week, some prominent Trump supporters have hinted at violence.

“If Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket,” former Illinois Representative Joe Walsh wrote on Twitter last week. Conservative commentator Wayne Root fantasized about Clinton’s death while speaking at a Trump rally in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Back in Georgia, the Three Percent Security Force wrapped up rifle practice in the midday sun. They then headed further into the trees to tackle an obstacle course with loaded pistols at their sides, ready for whatever may come.

Source: Zero Hedge via Raw Story

The story comes from the mainstream media, of course, and ties in the Oklahoma City bombing, Waco and the Ruby Ridge incidents, all of which involved people with ties to militias.

The way the report itself is framed appears to have the purpose of sowing seeds of “crazy conspiracy theorists” into the minds of the general public so that if push comes to shove government actions will be justified in the eyes of the American citizenry.

But whatever the narrative, it is clear that the possibility of post-election chaos is becoming all the more probable. Whether the initial outcome shows a Trump win or a Hillary win, there are going to be tens of millions of very pissed off people in this country. And there’s a very good chance that some of them will take action, which according to Mike Adams could subsequently lead to open warfare on the streets of America:

As I’ve publicly predicted numerous times over the last year, if Donald Trump wins, the radical extreme leftists go on a violent rampage that leads to the rest of us begging for martial law. After half a dozen cities burn with riots and looting, Trump invokes a national emergency, deploying National Guard troops across the most devastated urban areas, and the radical left finds itself in a shooting war with the government.

If Hillary Clinton wins, all the Trump supporters who have been violently assaulted, spat upon and physically attacked by the radical left un-holster their concealed weapons and start shooting back. This quickly escalates into open warfare between lunatic leftist Hillary supporters and armed Trump “Second Amendment” people who basically figure they’ve got nothing left to lose anyway, so why not fight to save America?

Full Report: The Election Is A Ticking Time Bomb: “Chaos Will Erupt In Less Than 100 Days”

It would only take a small group, perhaps even one that’s operating under a false flag, to light a wildfire that could spread from coast to coast. The assets, as Jeremiah Johnson warns, have already been put into place by the Obama administration:

In summary, the U.S. is prepositioning its “enemy-assets” to blame – on what the administration does – for a collapsed election labeled as “rigged” or the suspension of the election for any number of reasons, real or illusory, such as a genuine attack the U.S. provokes or an attack the U.S. carries out on itself.  Civil unrest and/or war are the escape hatches to bail out of the Constitution and to take control of the country…not letting either crisis go to waste.  With civil rest or a world war, the administration will be handed the country on a platter – indefinitely – and the election will be a moot point, whether it happened or not.

Full report: The United States Is Pre-Positioning “Enemy Assets” In Preparation For A Rigged Election

All of this may sound extreme, but this Presidential election has been nothing short of insane thus far.

Whatever the outcome, there will be calls of rigging from both sides, especially if it happens to be Hillary Clinton who , as evidence shows, has been rigging things all along.

It only took one bullet in 1914 to lead to widespread global confrontation. In the end, no one really cared who fired it or who got shot. The assets had already been positioned ahead of time and were just waiting for someone to detonate the powder keg.

If this is the case in America today, then this election will not end on November 8th, but could drag on for weeks or months as we saw with Bush vs. Gore in 2000.

Should tensions heat up and lead to confrontation, it is possible that President Obama will call for a national emergency and activate the Doomsday Executive Order to “restore order.” In this instance, the entire country could be on lock-down, so preparing for this outcome now in the event of curfews, rationing or any number of other potential scenarios is in order.

New Obama Executive Order Hints At Devastating Space Event: “Could Disable Large Portions Of The Electrical Power Grid… Cause Cascading Failures”

Click here to view the original post.

 

solar-flare-1

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

Once considered a fringe conspiracy theory, it appears that the Obama administration is now actively preparing for a massive solar event that could wipe out life as we have come to know it. Space weather events such as solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances have long been believed to pose a significant threat to our technologically advanced society with the ability to not only affect global positioning satellites, but on-earth electronics that include the entire domestic (and global) power grid.

In the latest Executive Order signed by Barack Obama, the President calls for coordination between various government agencies including the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland security should a major “space weather event” come to pass.

Via WhiteHouse.Gov

Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

Though often dismissed as nothing more than fear mongering, the threat of space weather events is not only possible, it is quite probable, as evidenced  by a massive solar flare which narrowly missed earth in 2012.

“The speed of this event was as fast or faster than anything that has been seen in the modern space age,” said Baker.

Had it hit Earth, the July 2012 event likely would have created a technological disaster by short-circuiting satellites, power grids, ground communication equipment and even threatening the health of astronauts and aircraft crews.

We have proposed that the 2012 event be adopted as the best estimate of the worst case space weather scenario…

Is it possible that the Obama administration has scientific evidence supporting the fact that a space weather event is imminent? One Congresswoman thinks so, having claimed that there isa 100% chance of a crippling event.

The Executive Order signed by Obama on October 13, 2016 certainly suggests this may be the case:

It is the policy of the United States to prepare for space weather events to minimize the extent of economic loss and human hardship. The Federal Government must have (1) the capability to predict and detect a space weather event, (2) the plans and programs necessary to alert the public and private sectors to enable mitigating actions for an impending space weather event, (3) the protection and mitigation plans, protocols, and standards required to reduce risks to critical infrastructure prior to and during a credible threat, and (4) the ability to respond to and recover from the effects of space weather. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) must coordinate their efforts to prepare for the effects of space weather events.

Coupled with a previous Executive Doomsday Order signed by the President in March of 2012, the federal government now has the ability to take full control of all critical national infrastructure elements including food resources, energy resources, farms, health facilities, water resources and even the nation’s workforce.

While millions of people have been preparing for the possibility of a catastrophic event by relocating to rural homesteads or farms, as well as stockpiling food, water, personal defense armaments and other essential supplies with the intention of utilizing these preparations if the worst happens, the latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government. 

Full report: Executive Doomsday Order: Obama Authorizes Gov to Seize Farms, Food, Processing Plants, Energy Resources, Transportation, Skilled Laborers During National Emergency

Recent projections from a secret Homeland Security report suggest that as many as 100 million Americans could be left without power should a powerful enough solar storm strike earth. Another report paints an even more terrifying picture, indicating that without access to power via our grid, America would literally come to a standstill. Critical supplies including medicine, gas, and food would be undeliverable and within one year as many as 90% of Americans would be dead if the grid were not restored.

The problem, according to The Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington is that over 90% of Americans are not only lacking any preparation for such a catastrophic scenario, but even if advance warning was sent to the population 12 hours ahead of time, it would simply be too late:

Unfortunately, that “12 hours” number doesn’t tell the whole story. It’s probably true that during a worst case scenario, it would take 12 hours for a solar storm to reach Earth. The only question is, can our scientific instruments detect a solar storm in that time frame?

Currently, our planet’s early warning system consists of a satellite called DSCOVR, which launched in February of this year, and reached its destination between the Earth and the Sun last June. The satellite it replaced could give us a 15 minute warning, but the DSCOVR satellite isn’t much of an improvement. It only gives us a 30-45 minute warning.

Pennington warns that a breakdown could happen very quickly and catch most people by surprise:

This is the point in this cycle where herds of people go to the grocery stores frantically grabbing supplies. Most grocery stores will not be able to meet the demand of the people’s need for supplies, and many could go home empty handed.

Bracing for the disaster, the prepared and unprepared will be hoping for the best outcome. What many do not realize is the hardest part of this event is soon to be upon them. Within days, the descent into the breakdown will begin.

Source: The Anatomy of a Breakdown

And it is this very descent into breakdown that will require an unprecedented government response and Obama’s Doomsday Executive Order has given them the pretext to do so.

Do government officials know that a life-threatening solar event is becoming increasingly more probable?

Or is the Obama administration simply taking proactive steps to prepare?

Whatever the case, it is important to note that Americans are not prepared to deal with the aftermath of such a scenario.

Millions will die. This is a fact.

Perhaps the actions being implemented on the federal level should be a wake up call to all Americans to prepare for disaster now

Starting today, Russia is holding a massive four-day Cold War-style “civil defense” drill that will involved 40 million civilians and 200,000 emergency personnel through the 7th of October.

The drill’s timing cannot be missed, right after Russia decried America’s involvement leading to death and destruction in Syria and peace talks have broken down.

Via Daily Mail:

Following a breakdown in communication between the USA and Russia, the Kremlin has now organised the huge emergency practice drill – either as a show of force or something more sinister.

The drill will prepare Russian citizens for “large natural and man-made disasters”, according to the country’s Ministery for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disaster…

A spokesman said in a statement: “The main goal of the drill is to practice organisation of management during civil defence events and emergency and fire management, to…

Impact? Asteroid With Destructive “Power of 3 Billion Nukes” Narrowly Misses Earth

Click here to view the original post.

Screen Shot 2016-09-20 at 5.12.20 PM

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

This is the power, hurtling from space, that could wipe us out like the dinosaurs. Or so they say.

It could be a close call, with the potential to collide with Earth. Still, it’s an incredibly minute chance.

Asteroids and meteors regularly pass by the planet, and not infrequently there are episodic peltings from space rock that hit random areas across the globe. Sometimes people are killed, and buildings are destroyed.

But the next one headed this way will be brushing by pretty closely, and could bring with it the power of billions of atomic bombs, enough reign down destruction across the planet.

via AOL News:

Experts are saying a huge meteor is rocketing close to Earth with the power of THREE BILLION ATOMIC BOMBS, AHHHHHH.

China’s Purple Mountain Laboratory discovered the massive asteroid using Asia’s largest telescope, determining the meteor was passing our planet with a range of 18.8 times the distance between the Earth and the moon — aka, WAY too close for comfort.

[…]

But scientists are keeping a close eye on 2009ES as just a minor change in its flight path could have catastrophic consequences for the human race, due to its sheer mass.

But what about the chances of a truly ‘deep impact’ that could destroy all life on earth?

Well, of course, the chances are very, very slim. But how many times can we dodge a bullet simply due to improbability?

These things could happen. Let us hope they do not.

Both the Pentagon and Russia’s defense have been working on asteroid and meteor destruction system, including plans to shoot down incoming space rocks, as well as a plan to capture asteroids in a giant orbiting catch basket. That, and whatever else they cooked up from late night viewings of Hollywood disaster films.

But scientists are actually not just hoping to avert disaster; they have set a goal to capture one, and actually find the devastating prospect of an asteroid headed for earth somewhat attractive.

Researchers are strategizing about how to ‘capture’ an asteroid or meteor and force it into orbit – in order to study, explore and exploit it. Naturally, they could then take advantage of any resources it could offer (including near-Earth living space for some future colony project).

Via Wikipedia:

NASA has proposed the Asteroid Redirect Mission (or Asteroid Initiative), an unmanned robotic mission, to “retrieve” a near-Earth asteroid with a size of about 8.2 metres (27 ft) and a mass of around 500 tons (comparable in mass to the ISS). The asteroid would be moved into a high lunar orbit or orbit around EML2 (halo orbit, Lissajous orbit) for research and exploration purposes.[3][4] Under consideration for moving the asteroid are grabbing the asteroid and using solarelectric propulsion to “directly” move it, as well as gravity tractor technology.

The mission could provide a relatively low-cost route to satisfying Barack Obama‘s goal of sending astronauts to a near-Earth asteroid by 2025,[6] and help develop knowledge and skills useful for future asteroid impact avoidance, in-situ resource utilization (including water for astronauts and for producing fuel, and material for bulk shielding against cosmic rays, for use there or elsewhere in space) and other asteroid mining (as well as providing a first target for the latter two).

The whole things seems a bit disaster prone, without much room for error. Nonetheless, perhaps it could shield the planet, and yield some lemonade afterwards, too.

Will any of it work? I guess we’ll find out after several billion more in military spending gets sucked into the great black hole of the secret space agenda.

Every day above ground is a good one.

Karl to Stir Dangerous Surf Along Eastern US Coast While Eyeing Bermuda

Click here to view the original post.

By Brian Thompson – AccuWeather

As Karl strengthens late this week, it will threaten Bermuda and lead to increased surf at U.S. East Coast beaches.

Karl weakened to a depression on Wednesday morning after moving through a hostile environment.

The storm will emerge into a more favorable environment, which will likely allow for strengthening into Friday.

Kilauea (Hawai’i): (21 Sep) Following the inflation cycle that began 2 days ago (and might be now turning into deflation), the lava lake in the Halema’uma’u summit crater has risen again into clear view from the HVO observatory. This morning, its surface was only 12 m (39 ft) below the rim.
An explosion of the lava lake was observed yesterday around 21:15 local time – probably triggered by a larger rockfall from the unstable crater walls, a fountain of incandescent material rose from the NE end of the lake to about the outer rim near the old overlook area, generating a plume of steam and ash that rose several hundred meters and quickly dissipated SW.
The two sea entries at Kamokuna remain active and well alimented; additionally, active pahoehoe breakouts are present about 2 km (1.2 mi) inland from the coast and higher up on the pali.

Turrialba (Costa Rica): After a day of relative calm, a new pulse of ash emissions occurred from the volcano this morning.
The current phase of activity at the volcano began around 13 Sep with renewed, but sporadic and weak ash emissions, but intensified drastically on 19 Sep reaching a new peak of activity (so far). Between 02:53 and 15:30 local time, the volcano produced several phases of near-continuous explosive activity with strong ash emissions, generating several ash plumes that rose more than 1000 m, drifted west into the Central Valley, causing moderate to heavy ash falls and forcing a temporary closure of the capital’s Juan Santamaria International Airport.
 
Some of the explosions were strong enough that part of the dense eruption columns collapsed into small pyroclastic flows that spread onto the crater floor. There are no reports of damage or injuries.

Mauna Loa (Big Island, Hawai’i): A magnitude 4.0 earthquake occurred at 2.4 km depth beneath the summit caldera of the volcano half an hour ago (04:25 am in Hawaii).
Such relatively large quakes under active volcanoes can (but not necessarily must) be precursors of new eruptions if they are being caused by magma pressurizing rock and fracturing it on its way up. Whether this particular quake is in fact caused by magma movements is impossible to know a priori without further analysis.
Mauna Loa is statistically “due” for an eruption (its last having been in 1984) and increased seismic activity and inflation over the past years have indicated an ongoing period of unrest due to gradual magma recharge.

Volcanic Activity Worldwide: Monday August 29, 2016

Steam/ash plume from Etna’s Voragine this morning

Source: Volcano Discovery

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Over the past weeks, the volcano’s activity (at Voragine and the New SE crater) has generally decreased and tremor levels are currently low.
While not entirely stopped, the emissions of hot incandescent gasses and ash, along with weak strombolian activity from the new vent in the Voragine crater have become less pronounced. Similarly, the sporadic ash emissions from the New SE, observed intermittently until at least Saturday, have ceased or become even rarer.
This could rapidly change, however.

Katla (Southern Iceland): At least one earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred this morning under the volcano, the strongest recorded for Katla in recent decades. It was felt in nearby areas.
The Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported two quakes, one at 01:47:02 local time at 3.8 km depth 8.1 km east of the summit (Goðabunga) followed 20 seconds later by another magnitude 4.5 quake at 0.1 km depth. Caution is required as these data are from automatic calculations which could actually in fact describe only one quake.
… [read more] … [show less]
During the past 48 hours, IMO has detected 48 earthquakes – most of them tiny, but including 4 of magnitudes of 3 or higher – at shallow depths under Katla.

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): The activity of the volcano, mainly effusive, remains intense. There are currently 3 active lava flows descending the steep stratovolcano: two parallel ones on the eastern-southeastern flank and a new one on the upper southwestern slope which has appeared about a week ago.
An intense thermal anomaly corresponding to the large output of lava is visible on satellite data.
Small ash plumes from strombolian activity in the summit crater have been producing plumes today that reached 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude and drifted eastwards today.

Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): Low-level ash emissions occur at the volcano, producing a plume at estimated 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude drifting west from the volcano.
The latest Terra satellite image shows a narrow plume of mostly gas and possible light ash content extending about 70 km to the west of Bougainville Island.
A moderate thermal hot spot is visible on MODIS data and has increased recently. This suggests that the volcano’s activity (effusive or mildly explosive or both) has picked up recently.

Copahue (Chile/Argentina): Strombolian activity continues in the El Agrio crater at fluctuating, generally low intensity.
Occasionally, incandescent bombs are projected higher than the crater rim and small ash plumes rise up to a few hundred meters before dissipating.

Currently erupting:

Ambrym (Vanuatu): active lava lakes in several craters (updated 12 Jul 2016)
Batu Tara (Sunda Islands, Indonesia): strombolian explosions, ash plumes up to 500 m, extrusion of a small lava dome with rockfalls (updated 28 Nov 2015)

CHEMICAL WARFARE RED ALERT: Zika Panic DEET Chemical Part of a Brain Damaging Binary Weapon Being Carpet Bombed Across America’s Cities

Click here to view the original post.

DEET chemical

By Mike Adams – Natural News

(NaturalNews) With every ignorant news organization across America now pushing Americans to slather their skin with DEET chemicals as a defense against Zika mosquitoes, there’s something every American needs to know: DEET is one chemical component of a binary chemical weapon system currently being carpet bombed onto U.S. civilian populations.

That’s an aggressive assertion, I fully realize. So in this article, I’m going to lay out the science for you that proves all this, citing published scientific studies, government research papers, historical accounts of military actions and molecular citations from the world’s most authoritative sources on chemistry. As far as my own science background goes, I am the lab science director of CWC Labs, an internationally accredited, ISO-17025 accredited forensic food analysis laboratory. I personally run mass spec (LC/MS-TOF) systems with a special focus on pesticides, herbicides and chemical toxicology. In fact, I have just completed a science paper on the world’s first LC/MS-TOF accurate quantitation and anti-counterfeit analysis method for cannabidiols in hemp extracts, and that paper is going to be published later this year at a science expo event. I’m also the author of the Amazon.com #1 bestselling science book Food Forensics.

By Renee Duff AccuWeather

Downpours will persist over flood-ravaged areas of Louisiana through the middle of the week.

“A front will stall out near the Gulf Coast, leading to a couple of unsettled days across the region,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Frank Strait said.

The enhanced rainfall will only aggravate the situation in flood-ravaged Louisiana.

“The ongoing downpours will not only hinder rescue, recovery and cleanup efforts but could also lead to additional incidents of flooding,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Explosion at Sakurajima’s Minamidake crater this morning

Source: Volcano Discovery

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): The volcano has been getting more active again during the past night: a series of small explosions and associated ash emissions occurred from the older summit crater, Minamidake:

It will be interesting to see whether or not Sakurajima returns to its previously so typical style of intermittent, often quite powerful vulcanian-type explosions (at rates ranging from one every few days to several per day).

Millions of Americans at Risk for Cancer and Other Harmful Diseases Due to Toxic Tap Water

Tap water

By Amy Goodrich – Natural News

(NaturalNews) More than 6 million Americans are drinking water tainted with unsafe levels of a widely used class of industrial chemicals linked to cancer and other serious health problems, a new study by Harvard University researchers has revealed.

The authors of the study found that levels of chemicals known as polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFASs, in public drinking water often exceed safety levels recommended by the federal government.

For decades, PFASs have been used in industrial and commercial products such as nonstick cookware, food wrappers, firefighting foam and for stain-proofing furniture. Long-term exposure to these chemicals has been associated with an increased risk of cancer, hormone disruption, high cholesterol and obesity.

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): The activity of the volcano remains essentially unchanged at currently low to moderate levels. The slow growth of the lava dome continues as viscous (sticky) lava accumulates in the dome. A (small) part of the inherently unstable dome collapsed yesterday morning and generated a pyroclastic flow that traveled down the SW valley between the dome and the remnants of the 1964 collapse scar, which forms a horse-show shaped wall around the dome.
The flow reached approx. 1500 m length and was 300-400 m wide. A second flow of similar size occurred immediately after. The resulting ash plume rose approx. 1 km.

Suwanose-jima (Ryukyu Islands): The volcano’s activity has picked up again. Since yesterday, webcam images show constant red glow and intense degassing as well as intermittent ash emissions some of which have also been reported by Tokyo VAAC.
Most likely, a new phase of intense strombolian activity is currently taking place at the active O-Take crater on the remote island.

Dukono (Halmahera): Continuous ash emissions have been observed during the past days. Satellite images show a plume extending into various directions (to the east today).
In short, the intense activity of the volcano (one of the most active of Indonesia) observed also during recent visits by various people seems to continue.

Yasur (Tanna Island, Vanuatu): Wellington VAAC reports ash plumes, mostly confined to Tanna Island, visible on satellite imagery today. This suggests that activity at the volcano is elevated at the moment. It is urrently at GeoHazard’s level 2, on a scale of 0-5 (5 being highest), meaning that “volcanic explosions remain intense, volcanic bombs may fall in and/or around the crater and volcanic gas and ashes can also affect some villages.”
Yasur is one of the few in the world with persistent strombolian activity, is elevated at the moment. We will visit the volcano again in September and report from on location.

Aoba (Vanuatu): Wellington VAAC received a pilot report of plumes of white steam and ash rising 1000 ft (300 m) above the active crater lake Voui this morning. This could suggest that perhaps some phreatic explosions have taken place, but it is far from certain whether the volcano (with almost no monitoring on ground) is about to erupt or not.
The remote location of the volcano’s large caldera and its extremely difficult make direct observations very rare.
 
According to GeoHazard, “Aoba probably should be considered at present times as the most dangerous volcano of the archipelago, due to the presence of a large lake in the main crater.”
Strong explosive eruptions have been frequent in the past, generating dangerous mud flows that left thick lahardeposits in the central part of Ambae island and up to the coastlines.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): The series of strong vulcanian explosions continues although they hve become rarer. This morning, another one occurred that produced a mushroom-shaped eruption column that rose to approx. 18,000 ft (6 km) altitude.
Partially collapsing parts of the eruption column generated moderately large pyroclastic flows on the eastern side and perhaps on the SW slope of the lava dome as well. As usual, ash falls have occurred in nearby towns and villages such as San Felipe and Mazatenango Retalulehu.

Eruption of Sinabung this morning (image: PVMBG)

Source: Volcano Discovery

Brava (Cape Verde): Seismic activity has decreased since its peak with shallow earthquakes around 2 August which had triggered fears that a new eruption could occur in the near future. Authorities remain at alert while groups of scientists are currently monitoring the situation.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The series of relatively frequent explosions continues. One this morning at 11:03 local time sent an ash plume to 1600 m above the summit.

Reventador (Ecuador): At the moment, this is Ecuador’s most active volcano. According to the Istituto Geofisico (IGEPN), its activity is “high”. A lava dome continues to grow at the summit crater.
Strong degassing generates a plume of steam and gas rising 500-1000 m and frequent small to moderate explosions produce ash plumes that rise to similar heights. In total, IGPEN counted 38 explosions during an 24 hour interval, based on seismic and webcam observations. Most of the time, these can not be observed directly due to frequent cloud cover.
Based on satellite observations, a stronger ash emission was reported by VAAC Washington this afternoon (at 14:18 UTC) with an ash plume reaching 19,000 ft (6.5 km) altitude, or approx. 2 km height above the crater.

Cotopaxi (Ecuador): The activity of the volcano, both internal (seismic, deformation etc) and at the surface, remains low. IGEPN reports that mild steaming and degassing continue.

Nevados de Chillán (Central Chile): Small, sporadic ash emissions continue to occur at the volcano on most days since they re-appeared in late July, showing that the volcano’s superficial hydrothermal system remains disturbed.
According to SERNAGEOMIN volcanologists, this new phase of surface activity is being caused by a small magma intrusion at 4-5 km depth which interacts with (transfers heat and gasses into) the overlying system of circulating fluids (water and gasses) which can become over-pressurized and then generate explosions at the surface (= phreatic activity).

Bristol Island (United Kingdom, South Sandwich Is): The eruption on the remote island seems to have come to and end or paused.
During the past 2 weeks, no more traces of ash emissions or lava flows have been detected on satellite imagery and the heat signal has decreased to more or less zero.

Outbreak: Russian Bio Warfare Troops Rushed To Arctic: “Dangerous Infection”

Click here to view the original post.

(Russian troops prepare to board a plane to infected region of Northern Russia)

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

The Russian military has reportedly sent biological warfare teams to the Russian arctic in northern Siberia after at least 40 people and 1,200 reindeer died as the result of a violent and rapid spread of what is believed to be Bacillus Anthracis, more commonly known as Anthrax.

Russian officials said the infection may have started after a contaminated corpse was exposed following a warm summer in the Arctic which saw temperatures rise as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

There were dramatic scenes as the Russian army’s Chemical, Radioactive and Biological Protection Corps, equipped with masks and bio-warfare protective clothing, flew to to regional capital Salekhard on a military Il-76 aircraft to deal with the emergency.

They were deployed by Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu to carry laboratory tests on the ground, detect and eliminate the focal point of the infection, and to dispose safely of dead animals.

“As of now, there is no single diagnosis of the dangerous infection,” said a spokesman for the governor of Yamalo-Nenets, Dmitry Kobylkin.

The Sun UK

Officials  noted that they are not certain Anthrax is the sole cause and another biological agent may be to blame. Because of the remote location of the outbreak the situation has been, for the most part, contained according to Russian officials.

russia-bio-3(Regions north of Tarko Sale are the focus of the outbreak)

The claim that the Anthrax infection originated in nature sounds legitimate enough, but one can never discount the possibility of the involvement of state-sponsored or rogue assets, as has been noted in a recent release of U.S. government documents which expose widespread human experimentation programs utilizing chemical, biological and radiological weapons:

“…we have identified hundreds of radiological, chemical, and biological tests and experiments in which hundreds of thousands of people were used as test subjects. These tests and experiments often involved hazardous substances such as radiation, blister and nerve agents, biological agents, and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). In some cases, basic safeguards to protect people were either not in place or not followed. For example, some tests and experiments were conducted in secret; others involved the use of people without their knowledge or consent or their full knowledge of the risks involved.”

The Russian Arctic emergency highlights the importance of protective CBRN equipment that can be deployed quickly in the event of a rapidly spreading biological infection, chemical gas, or radiological threat.

Top 10 Inexpensive Food Items That Can PREVENT Nearly Every Disease and Disorder Known to Mankind

Click here to view the original post.

Natural medicine

By S. D. Wells – Natural News

(NaturalNews) Nothing’s more true than the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” Not only does that ounce of prevention save you the nightmare of being sick, probably missing work and most likely accumulating medical bills, but that same “ounce” of prevention may only literally weigh an ounce and cost less than 15 bucks.

In America, people have been brainwashed by the medical industrial complex into believing that food can’t prevent or cure anything, but just the opposite is true. In fact, there’s a natural cure for every health ill under the sun, and the secret “recipe” involves taking a couple of 5 dollar bills out of your purse or wallet, buying the item, opening the package and putting the remedy in your mouth. It’s a super simple process that seems too easy, and that’s exactly why so many people fail to have the faith required to actually walk the walk, so they won’t have to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars at doctor’s offices and hospitals – those dreadful places where health problems often get much, much worse.

40 Shockingly Simple Skills That Today’s Millennia’s Have No Idea How To Do

Click here to view the original post.

Millennials

By Mike Adams – Natural News

(NaturalNews) Behold the following list of amazingly simple skills that have somehow escaped Generation Snowflake. This is what happens when an entire society of teachers, parents and spineless community leaders tell young people they’re “awesome” and “amazing” even when they’re actually rather pathetic and clueless.

As you read this list, recognize that Millennials are just one event away from being removed from the human gene pool via natural selection following almost any disruptive event (power grid failure, natural disasters, war, etc.)

FACT CHECK: Find your closest Millennial neighbor and ask them to carry out anything on this list. If you can find any Millennial who can do any of these things, you may have accidentally stumbled across an Eagle Scout troop meeting. For the rest of today’s youth, they’re clueless!

Volcanic Activity Worldwide: Tuesday July 19, 2016

Glowing avalanche at Sinabung volcano yesterday night (image: Endro Lewa / facebook)

Source: Volcano Discovery

Fuego (Guatemala): Strombolian-type explosions have increased in size and frequency during the past days. Many of the explosions ejected lava bombs to several hundred meters above the crater and caused spectacular incandescent avalanches on the upper slopes.
So far, no lava flow has accompanied the current peak of activity; whether it will continue to evolve further or is about to end is difficult to judge.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): No significant changes have occurred in the ongoing effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano. The slow lava dome growth continues to feed a prominent lava lobe on the upper ESE flank that sheds glowing avalanches.
Occasional larger collapses of this lava lobe produce more violent pyroclastic flows.
In addition, the volcano continues to produce explosions, caused by trapped, pressurized gasses contained in the magma from the upper conduit or the dome itself. These vertical explosions have been occurring at rates of one per day on average recently. This morning, an ash plume rose to 15,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude, i.e. approx. 2 km above the summit.

Bromo (East Java, Indonesia): Mild to moderate ash emissions continue, generating a plume that rises up to 500-1000 m and drifts mostly northwest before dissipating.

Kilauea (Hawai’i): The latest mapping of the active lava flow in the coastal plain shows that the leading tip was about 870 m from the coast yesterday. Most of the activity in recent days has been the overriding and widening of the lava flow field, with only little net advance of the farthest lava front towards ocean.
However, if the feeding of fresh lava through the main tube into the lava field in the coastal plain continues, and eventually establishes itself over increasing distance, it is more and more likely that the lava eventually reaches the sea. This is likely to occur in the near or medium-term future (days to weeks).

Santiaguito (Guatemala): A strong explosion (another in the ongoing series) occurred at the Caliente lava dome yesterday at 13:30 local time. According to INSIVUMEH, it generated an ash column that rose to approx. 5 km altitude, i.e. about 2500 m above the dome.

Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): The volcano is showing signs of unrest that could be (but not necessarily) precursors of a new eruption. Since the beginning of the month, shallow (0-2 km depth) volcanic earthquakes of rock-fracturing type under the Dolomieu crater (the main vent of the volcano) have been more frequent, probably caused by a new magma intrusion.
The volcano observatory’s (OVPF) latest statement mentions that 111 “collapses” have occurred recently on the Dolomieu crater, the Enclos and on the lava flow of Aug-Oct 2015.

EPA Literally Wants You to DIE from Radiation: Agency Raising the Limit of Radioactive Elements in Drinking Water by Over 3,000 Times… To Cause Widespread Cancer and Death

Radiation in water

By Mike Adams – Natural News

(NaturalNews) We really have reached a point of such insanity across human civilization that governments have become the terrorists who actively seek to harm and kill off the people. The latest example demonstrating this very point is the fact that the EPA just announced its plan to allow gigantic increases in the allowable radioactivity in drinking water… increasing it by over 3,000 times in the case of radioactive Iodine-131… while calling it “safe” to drink even though it’s almost certain to give you cancer.

In this public EPA document, the agency says it was ordered by President Obama’s Executive Order 12656 (section 1601(2)) to “[d]evelop, for national security emergencies, guidance on acceptable emergency levels of nuclear radiation….”

In this report, the EPA warns that a nuclear “incident” may strike the United States, and if people are going to drink the radioactive water, somebody needs to decide how much radioactivity Americans will be allowed to consume.

Survival World News

UN Vehicle - Jeff Stern

By Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog

You may not be getting prepared for a major national disaster, but the government sure is.  I have been informed that in recent months numerous emergency food companies have been contacted by the government, and they have been told that their inventories could potentially be seized in the event of a significant emergency.  And as you will see below, the government recently participated in an exercise that simulated “an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade”.  In addition, NPR has just revealed details about the very secretive Strategic National Stockpile program that is storing billions of dollars worth of medical supplies in warehouses around the nation.  This is a program that most Americans do not even know exists.  On top of everything else, strange reports of military vehicles with UN markings have been coming in from all over the…

Eruption of Santiaguito yesterday (photo: Carlos Gonzales / @stereo100xela / twitter)

Source: Volcano Discovery

Canlaon (Central Philippines): The volcano remains restless. A small explosion occurred Saturday morning at 09:19 local time.
According to PHILVOLCS, the eruption which lasted less than 30 minutes was entirely steam-driven (phreatic or hydrothermal), i.e. caused by overheated ground water flashing into steam inside the hydrothermal system overlying a (probably small) body of magma, but no magma itself was projected to the surface.
 
A small plume of ash rose approx. 400 m and caused minor ash fall in San Miguel, Gintubdan and Araal in La Carlota, Negros Occidental.
PHILVOLCS recorded ongoing inflation (sign of magma intruding at depth), small earthquakes (3 volcano-tectonic events on 17) and observed steaming from the volcano producing a plume that rose about 300 m.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The volcano continues to erupt with little changes – effusing viscous lava at slow pace and feeding a prominent lava lobe on the SE flank.
A small collapse of parts of this last night caused an incandescent avalanche documented by avid Sinabung volcano-follower and photographer Endro Lewa.

Kilauea (Hawai’i): HVO reports no significant changes in the eruption.
The new lava flow headed to the SE from Pu’u O’o continues to advance fast. During the past week, it made progress of 1200 meters, i.e. on average almost 200 m per day.
 
Its front is currently approx. 6 km from the coast and it is headed currently towards the Royal Gardens area, where it will meet steeper ground on the Pulama pali which likely will speed up its advance before slowing down again once in the vast coastal plain. If the current advance continues, it will take about 10 days to reach the top of pali, HVO wrote. Whether and when new lava will eventually reach the ocean is impossible to predict: the road to there is still long. However, chances of this happening within the next few months are quite high and increasing.
At the summit, the lava lake inside Halemaʻumaʻu’s inner pit crater continues to circulate and spatter, and its surface is currently approx. 30 m below the crater floor. Seismic activity across the volcano has been low recently. The long-term deformation trend shows continued inflation beneath the summit and uppermost Southwest Rift Zone.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): Following a relatively calm period of 3 weeks (no significant eruptions since 25 May), a powerful vulcanian explosion occurred at the Caliente lava dome again yesterday at 09:15 local time, sending an mushroom-shaped eruption column approx. 5 km into the sky.
Pyroclastic flows descended the base of the cone and ash falls occurred in downwind areas (as usual) to the west and southwest, including the towns and villages of Loma Linda, San Marcos Palajunoj, San Felipe Retalhuleu, El Nuevo Palmar and others. No evacuations were ordered and no significant damage was reported.

Multi-Day Severe Weather Outbreak to Target Central US

Click here to view the original post.

By Becky Elliott AccuWeather

A dangerous, multiple-day severe weather event will continue to unfold across the part of the central United States into midweek.

Following the first significant heat wave of the season across the Plains and Mississippi Valley, hot conditions and high humidity will give way to downpours and powerful thunderstorms across a large portion of the region.

The greatest threat from the storms will be from damaging wind gusts and large hail. However, a small number of storms could produce a tornado and flash flooding.

Mushroom cloud from Popocatépetl volcano yesterday (CENAPRED webcam)

Source: Volcano Discovery

Suwanose-jima (Ryukyu Islands): The activity of the volcano has become more intense during the past days. Several ash plumes were detected by Tokyo VAAC and blight glow is intermittently visible on the webcam.
Most likely, the volcano has started another phase of intense, intermittent strombolian explosions.

Semeru (East Java, Indonesia): Access to the mountain was closed after a 26 year-old Swiss climber has been missing for 10 days now since he climbed the volcano on 3 June.
The young man who climbed the volcano without a guide was reported missing by a travel companion who had been in a different location for a few days and could notice his absence only 3 days later. Despite intense efforts, local search-and-rescue teams have so far been unsuccessful to locate the young man. It can only be speculated about his fate, but chances of his survival seem dwindling.
 
The most likely causes for the accident are lost orientation on the mountain during ascent or descent, or perhaps falling into one of the difficult-to-access steep ravines draining on the volcano’s steep slopes.

Suretamatai (Banks Islands, Vanuatu): The alert level of the volcano (also known as Vanua Lava) was recently raised a notch from 0 to 1 (on a scale of 0-4). No details about volcanic unrest are available, but presumably, the Vanuatu Geohazards Observatory recorded elevated seismic activity from the volcano.
Residents and tourists are reminded to stay outside of areas near the crater and in particular avoid the Sulfur River (E flank) were there is a high risk of volcanic gas emissions.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): A moderately strong vulcanian explosion occurred yesterday morning at 11:17 local time, producing a mushroom-shaped ash plume that rose approx. 3 km above the summit and dispersed in westerly directions.
Today, the volcano has been mostly calm with only minor emissions mainly of steam and gas.
The activity of the volcano itself has been very stable over the past months and at overall low to medium levels only; while lava is slowly accumulating in the summit crater, this growth of the lava dome is occasionally interrupted by explosions such as this one.

Florida on alert for possible Tropical Storm Colin, flooding downpours

Click here to view the original post.

By AccuWeather

As Bonnie continues to shift away from the Eastern Seaboard, there are signs of possible tropical development in the Caribbean.

A disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms is currently showing signs of development in the central Caribbean Sea, and regardless of whether it will be able to strengthen into a tropical storm, it will bring flooding downpours and rough seas to Florida early next week.

This disturbance will be picked up by steering winds which will guide the feature northeastward near the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico as the weekend comes to an close.

Ash emission from Turrialba yesterday morning (RSN)

Volcanoes Today, 4 Jun 2016: Kerinci volcano, Kliuchevskoi volcano, Michael,  Turrialba, Sakurajima, Yellowstone, Zavodovski,

Source: Volcano Discovery

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): The volcano has been very calm recently. After 2 weeks with no recorded explosions, a few relatively small ones occurred yesterday and today, producing ash plumes that rose to 7-8,000 ft (2-2.5 km) altitude.

Kerinci (Sumatra): A small eruption was seen from the volcano this morning at 07:44 local time. An ash plume from an explosion at the summit of Indonesia’s highest active volcano rose approx. 400 m from the summit crater.

Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): The effusion of a lava flow on the southeastern flank of the volcano continues with little changes. A second flow branch has recently made its appearance.
For now, no significant explosive activity is present, although this could of course change quickly (as often has in the past). A strong thermal signal is visible on satellite data.

Michael (United Kingdom, South Sandwich Is): At least some intermittent mild eruptive activity might be continuing at the volcano.
On a recent satellite image, a weak dark line possibly indicating an ash plume can be seen.

Turrialba (Costa Rica): Following a 4 days pause in activity, new ash emissions have been occurring from the volcano again since yesterday.
Activity seems to have restarted gradually on Wednesday and became more intense yesterday morning, when a plume rising up to approx. 2000 m could be observed during clear weather. Small ash falls were noted in downwind areas.

Yellowstone (Wyoming, USA): The activity at the caldera (seismicity, deformation, degassing etc) remains at normal levels. Despite continuing rumors and fear-mongering media (unsupported by facts), there is currently no sign to believe that the so-called “supervolcano” is about to erupt violently anytime soon.
The USGS Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) who monitors the caldera’s seismic activity, its ground deformation and other geophysical parameters very closely maintains therefore Yellowstone’s current status level at “green” = “normal” – actually, the most typical state of any of the world’s thousands of active volcanoes.
 
Yellowstone’s current observed activity underground and at the surface (mostly hydrothermal in nature, e.g. its hot mineral springs and geysers) falls well within this normal activity state and should not be sign of worry.
Info abbreviated from the latest monthly USGS/YVO report:

Zavodovski (South Sandwich Islands (UK)): Satellite images show Mount Curry volcano on Zavodovski Island has been emitting a significant gas plume.

June 7: FEMA Will Hold A Drill To Prepare For A 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake And Tsunami

Click here to view the original post.

Cascadia Subduction Zone - FEMA

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream

Starting on June 7th, FEMA will be conducting a large scale drill that has been named “Cascadia Rising” that will simulate the effects of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone and an accompanying west coast tsunami dozens of feet tall. According to the official flyer for the event, more than “50 counties, plus major cities, tribal nations, state and federal agencies, private sector businesses, and non-governmental organizations across three states – Washington, Oregon, and Idaho – will be participating”.  In addition to “Cascadia Rising”, U.S. Northern Command will be holding five other exercises simultaneously.  According to the final draft of the Cascadia Rising drill plan, those five exercises are entitled “Ardent Sentry 2016″, “Vigilant Guard”, “Special Focus Exercise”, “Turbo Challenge” and “Joint Logistics Over-The-Shore”.  The primary scenario that of all of these participants will be focusing on will be one that involves a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone followed by a giant tsunami that could displace up to a million people from northern California to southern Canada.

We have never seen such a disaster before in all of U.S. history.

Do they know something that the rest of us do not?

It is funny that they are preparing to deal with the effects of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, because that is precisely the size of earthquake that I warned about in an article back in March.

The San Andreas Fault in southern California gets more headlines, but the Cascadia Subduction Zone is a much larger threat by far.  This fault zone is where the Juan de Fuca plate meets the North American plate, and it stretches approximately 700 miles from northern Vancouver Island all the way down to northern California.

If a magnitude 9.0 earthquake were to strike, the immense shaking and subsequent tsunami would cause damage on a scale that is hard to even imagine right now.  Perhaps this is why FEMA feels such a need to get prepared for this type of disaster, because the experts assure us that it is most definitely coming someday.  The following comes from the official website of the “Cascadia Rising” exercise…

Source: Volcano Discovery

Etna (Sicily, Italy): (19 May) The second paroxysm from the Voragine summit crater ended gradually during the course of today. Bad weather prevented detailed observations for most of the time.
At the moment, the lava flow from the new vent at the eastern base of the North-East crater is still visible, but effusion has either stopped or strongly decreased.
 
ETNA UPDATE, 19 MAY 2016, 11:00 UTC (INGV Catania’s official update)
During the afternoon of 18 May 2016, the lava fountaining activity from Etna’s Voragine crater passed into a modest Strombolian activity, which continued to feed the lava overflow toward west until the late evening (see first image at left, recorded by the thermal camera at Bronte, EBT).

Alaid (Northern Kuriles): Over the past week, activity of the volcano seems to have been declining. The satellite-based observation of heat output has been decreasing, suggesting that the eruption might be waning or ending.

According to the latest Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report from 11-17 May 2016, the eruption of “Alaid continued during 6-13 May. Satellite images showed an intense daily thermal anomaly over the volcano and a lava flow on the SW flank. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange (the second highest level on a four-color scale).”

Chirpoi (Kurile Islands, Russia): A weak thermal anomaly over Snow, a volcano of Chirpoi, was detected in satellite images during 9-11 and 14 May. The Aviation Color Code remained at Yellow.

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): In the past days, the volcano has been back to its typical activity of intermittent, but often strong vulcanian-type explosions at irregular intervals between several days or only few hours with almost no visible activity in between.
During 15-18 May, 9 explosions with ash plumes up to 15,000 ft altitude were recorded. No explosion has occurred during the past 48 hours, though.
 
JMA reported that an explosion at the Minamidake summit crater (at Aira Caldera’s Sakurajima volcano) generated an ash plume that rose 3.7 km above the crater rim.

Ruapehu (North Island): On 17 May GeoNet reported that the lake temperature of Ruapehu’s summit Crater Lake had decreased from a high of 46 degrees Celsius to 39 degrees, with some of the decrease attributed to rain and snowfall.
Moderate levels of volcanic tremor continued, and analysis of water samples collected the previous week showed no changes in the lake chemistry. During recent visits, scientists measured a larger output of volcanic gases. The Volcanic Alert Level remained at 2 (moderate to heightened unrest) and the Aviation Colour Code remained at Yellow.
(from: Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 11-17 May 2016)

Cleveland (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): After the small explosions at the volcano on 5 and 10 May, no further unusual activity has been noted on satellite and seismic data until 14 May.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory detected “energetic steaming and highly elevated surface temperatures in the summit crater” on 15 May. The Level of Concern Color Code remained at Orange and the Volcano Alert Level remained at Watch.” (AVO)

Colima (Western Mexico): The activity of the volcano has remained essentially unchanged over the past months and is currently relatively low.
Growth of a small lava dome continues in the summit crater (as indicated by some glow at night) and small to moderate explosions occur at rates of a few per day. Ash plumes have been reaching 1-4 km height above the crater during the recent week.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): The current phase of intense activity at the active Caliente lava dome continues. Two more explosions occurred yesterday, at 09:34 and 09:56 local time, producing ash plumes that rose 2-3 km to 15,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude.
Loud detonations accompanied the eruptions which also generated pyroclastic flows. Ash fall occurred in up to 25 km distance to the south and southwest, in particular in the farms of El Faro, Patzulin, Monte Bello, as well as in Loma Linda, San Marcos Palajunoj, Las Marias and other villages of the municipality of San Felipe in the department of Retalhuleu.

Fuego (Guatemala): (19 May) A relatively large pyroclastic flow (avalanche of hot debris and ash) descended from the volcano yesterday (18 May) morning at around 10:30 local time.
The unusual aspect is that it occurred during a phase of currently low activity with no active lava flow or intense explosive activity (as during the paroxysms). There seemed not to have been any precursor signs either.
The most likely cause should be a collapse of accumulated, unstable material from previous eruptions on the upper slopes, something that would not be too unusual to happen.

Turrialba (Costa Rica): The activity at the volcano has increased during the past days and ash emissions from the active crater with intermittent stronger explosions have been near-continuous since yesterday.
A more violent phase of explosive activity began this morning at 07:29 local time, producing an ash column that rose about 3000 m above the crater to approx. 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude.
 
The most energetic phase lasted about 6 minutes and produced pyroclastic flows from collapsing parts of the ash column that affected the central crater and eastern rims.
An ash plume drifted eastwards and caused moderate to light ash falls in up to 60-70 km distance. A strong smell of sulfur was reported by eyewitnesses from various towns including San Rafael and San Francisco (50 km ENE).

Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia): The Manizales volcano observatory reported that sporadic mild ash emissions continue to occur at the volcano, last on 17 and 18 May.
from the Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 11-17 May 2016:
 
“During 10-16 May seismicity at Nevado del Ruiz was characterized by long-period and very-long-period earthquakes, episodes of continuous tremor, and pulses of volcanic tremor associated with gas-and-ash emissions.
Thermal anomalies near Arenas Crater were identified in satellite images during 11-12 May. Significant amounts of water vapor and gas rose from the crater during the week. A gas, steam, and ash plume rose 1.7 km and drifted NW and W on 12 May.

Sangay (Ecuador): The mild eruption that had started in early March continues with no significant changes.
According to IGEPN, the number of tremor events and long-period earthquakes were slightly higher in March as compared to the number recorded in April and May, and the number of explosions was slightly higher in April and May.
 
Surficial activity was characterized by frequent ash emissions generated by explosive activity. Thermal anomalies on the flanks were also detected, mostly within 5 km of the summit crater, which possibly corresponded to short-range pyroclastic flows and lava flows. No abnormal sulfur dioxide emission were detected.

Cotopaxi (Ecuador): During an overflight of Cotopaxi on 10 May, scientists observed minor gas emissions rising 600 m above the crater and drifting N and NW. Glaciers remained cracked, though glacial melting observed in recent months had decreased considerably. The temperature of flank fumaroles had decreased slightly.

Survival World News

Volcano Erupting Full Moon - Public Domain

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream

Is an eruption of one or more of the major volcanoes in the northwest United States imminent?  In recent days, very large earthquake swarms have been reported at Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens.  It is certainly not unusual for each of these volcanoes to experience earthquake swarms from time to time, but right now we are seeing this happen at all three volcanoes simultaneously, and this comes at a time when seismic activity along the Ring of Fire is on the rise all over the planet.  If you have followed my work for a while, then you probably already know that I have been consistently warning that an eruption of Mt. Rainier is coming, and of course Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens are exceedingly dangerous volcanoes as well.  If any one of the three were to…

Sgt. Tim Farris witnessed the fireball event around 12:30 am EDT, reports the Portland Press Herald:

Farris was parked in front of the Central Fire Station on Congress Street looking for speeders at the time, and his cruiser’s dashcam captured the fireball streaking across the sky behind Franklin Towers. The video was posted on the department’s Facebook page Tuesday.

Over in Cumberland, Officer Scott Hendee was on patrol when his dashcam recorded the sky lighting up as the fireball crossed the sky.

“Unfortunately, the fireball and large flame trail were just out of the camera’s frame,” the department wrote on its Facebook page. “It was the most impressive one we’ve ever seen!”

The American Meteor Society (AMS) shared the video on its website, and it…

Despite drought-alleviating El Niño-induced rainfall during winter, a near-average wildfire season is anticipated across the northwestern United States.

The 2015 wildfire season was record-breaking as serious drought and warm conditions kept a tight grip of the region. Over 10 million wildfire acres were burned last year, breaking the previous record of 9.87 million acres set in 2006.

Not only did the Northwest report above-average fire occurrences in 2015 based on an annual 10-year average, the region also experienced above-average acres burned, according to the National Interagency Coordination Center’s 2015 wildland fire summary and statistics annual report.

Nuclear war

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

There is yet more confirmation that near-certain doom is headed for planet earth, and could kill or disrupt the lives of everyone on the planet.

And there’s reason to think it could be in our lifetimes.

A study commissioned by Oxford University identified possibly-imminent catastrophe from asteroids, AI, volcanoes, nukes/EMP or manufactured/weaponized disease sweeping the planet.

And yet we’re the conspiracy theorists…

According to the Daily Mail/Press Association:

In the next five years asteroids, super volcanic eruptions and unknown risks are ranked as the biggest threat to humanity.[…]

It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi films, but experts said these apocalyptic threats are more likely than many realise…

[…]

In the longer term, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has been listed alongside catastrophic climate change, nuclear war and pandemics as a threat to humanity.

The biggest long term threat to civilization…

Electromagnetic Pulse Attack - Creative Commons

By Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog

What would America look like with absolutely no electricity?  Could you survive in a world with no lights, no cell phones, no computers, no televisions, no ATMs, no cash registers and no refrigerators?  Such a world is not as far away as you might think.  A very powerful nuclear blast directly over the center of the continental United States could potentially fry electronic equipment from coast to coast, and it would take months or even years to fully restore power.  During that time, the entire country would be plunged into chaos and experts tell us that tens of millions of Americans would die.  But even if we are never attacked by a nuclear weapon in that manner, scientists assure us that it is inevitable that a massive electromagnetic blast from the sun will produce a similar result someday anyway.  In fact, back…

Massive Earthquake Looming As Pressure Builds On San Andreas Fault: “Wound Very, Very Tight”

Click here to view the original post.

Screen shot 2016-05-05 at 10.07.50 AM

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

Any number of disaster scenarios would seemingly bring the U.S. to a grinding halt, and wreak untold havoc upon the vulnerable population.

Worse, there seems to be an uncomfortable sense that a major event like that is long overdue.

Surely one of the most devastating would be a major earthquake along the San Andreas fault line. For several years now, experts have warned that the stress levels have reached a dangerous threshold and that the “big one” could be coming to Southern California… any time now.

Scientists have issued a dire warning that Southern California and the Los Angeles area could be in the path of a major earthquake of 7.0 magnitude or greater.

In the worst case scenario, it could destroy the Los Angeles metro area and rupture hundreds of miles of land in Southern California. A 7.9 earthquake took place back in 1857.

The Los Angeles Times is now reporting that the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll” – there is a clear and present danger:

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.

The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous, and is the state’s longest fault. Yet for Southern California, the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured an astonishing 185 miles between Monterey County and the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles.

[…] “The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go,” Jordan said in the opening keynote talk.

[…]

The devastating potential of the fault became clear with a 1857 temblor, which had an estimated magnitude of 7.9… The quake was so powerful that the soil liquefied, causing trees as far away as Stockton to sink. Trees were also uprooted west of Fort Tejon. The shaking lasted 1 to 3 minutes.

According to the leading scientists in the study of tectonic plates and movements, earthquakes must periodically relieve plate pressure (about 16 feet worth of movement every century), but that has not happened on the San Andreas fault during that time period – in fact, the event is overdue.

If they’re right, that makes disaster all but imminent in one of the most heavily populated areas in North America.

Here is a simulation of what could occur:

The L.A. Times also noted:

A 2008 U.S. Geological Survey report warned that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault would cause more than 1,800 deaths, 50,000 injuries, $200 billion in damage and severe, long-lasting disruptions. Among the predicted problems: The sewer system could be out of commission for six months.

Additionally, a major, devastating quake would almost certainly interrupt transportation, shipments and commerce, perhaps for months on end. The lack of vital services (such as the sewer system, as noted above) could pose major issues to survival and the resumption of everyday life.

If you are unfortunate enough to live in Los Angeles, you may have some life issues to work out anyway, but… it would be wise to heed these warnings.

If you are caught in a major quake, it is important to avoid being trapped by collapsing buildings or flying debris. Here are some thoughts on surviving the aftermath.

The San Andreas fault is not the only troubling hotspot in the country – Old Faithful has been causing recent worry from Yellowstone, and the New Madrid fault line has DHS/FEMA concerned enough to run multi-agency nationwide drills simulating a major earthquake disaster. Meanwhile, the Ring of Fire has been causing devastation at flashpoints throughout the Pacific ring in many nations.

Volcanic Activity Worldwide: May 6, 2016

Niigata-Yake-yama (Honshu): An increase in small earthquakes has been detected under the volcano located on the border between Niigata and Nagano Prefecture recently.
In addition, a slight increase in fumarolic activity on the eastern side of the summit crater was noted and some inflation of the volcanic edifice recorded.
 According to the Niigata Meteorological Observatory monitoring the volcano, the number of volcanic earthquakes has been up to 4 times that of normal background levels, with up to 23 quakes recorded on a single day. Seismic activity has been dominated by low-frequency earthquakes, which are thought to reflect internal fluid movements (gasses, hot watery solutions, as well as magma).
While the observed unrest is far from at alarming levels, they might reflect a change in the internal hydrothermal and /or magma storage system and could (but not necessarily must) be precursors to new activity at the surface.

Cleveland (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) raised the alert level of the volcano from yellow to orange after a new explosion was detected that had occurred this morning (18:44 AKDT local time).
The size of the new eruption is unknown, but probably small; there are no direct observations of the remote volcano, but the explosion could be seen on both infrasound (air pressure) and seismic data.
“There are no recent satellite views since the detected explosion, but previous Cleveland explosions have typically produced ash emissions”, AVO wrote in its bulletin this morning.

Turrialba (Costa Rica): The volcano remains at elevated unrest and had a new small eruption yesterday noon (at 12:05 local time), producing ash emissions similar to those during the past weekend.

Currently erupting:

The threat of damaging and dangerous thunderstorms will shift farther east on Wednesday and will be centered from the middle Mississippi Valley to the Gulf Coast.

As the storm system responsible for a severe weather outbreak over the Plains on Tuesday moves eastward, so will the risk to lives and property.

On Wednesday, the threat of violent storms will extend along an approximate 800-mile-long swath from Missouri and central Illinois to eastern Texas and coastal areas of Mississippi and Alabama.

Areas from Austin, Texas, to Omaha, Nebraska, are on alert for a severe weather outbreak that is likely to feature multiple tornadoes into Tuesday night.

The storms will threaten lives and property and are likely to produce the biggest outbreak of the year so far. There is the potential for this outbreak to rival some of the biggest in the past few years.

The first severe storms ignited in Nebraska and northeastern Kansas during Tuesday morning. Severe storms were moving into northern Missouri and southern Iowa during the midday hours. This is just a small sample of what may unfold later in the day.

Klyuchevskoi volcano this morning with what is likely a new lava flow (KVERT webcam)

Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): The activity of the volcano has intensified, in particular during the past 24-36 hours. KVERT reported that strong strombolian explosions produced an ash plume that rose to 8-9 km altitude that drifted more than 400 km to the SW.
Webcam images have been mostly unclear, but view from this evening (dawn in Kamchatka) suggest that a new lava flow might have started to descend the volcano’s flanks, which would be a typical occurrence if the magma supply rate has indeed increased. An intense thermal anomaly is being recorded on satellite data as well.
KVERT alerted this morning that the “explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,240 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.” The aviation color code was raised…

Source: Volcano Discovery

Nyamuragira (DRCongo): The lava lake at the bottom of the inner pit in the volcano’s summit caldera has recently disappeared, a recent survey by scientist from the Goma volcano observatory (OVG) and UN.
It is not known when exactly this happened and how, but the thermal signal stops abruptly around 1 April, suggesting that the lake, which had appeared during 2014, drained quickly at around this date. During their overflight on 6 April, the group of scientists from OVG, UN and the Second University of Naples around D. Tedesco only saw an incandescent vent, releasing a jet of hot gasses, in the place of the lava lake.

Earthquake Freeway Collapse

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream

Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden?  Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way.  In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”.  If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.

Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation.  The following comes from the Express
