The Big Wobble Headlines: Quick Read...


The Unliveable Series

As COP26 ended in somewhat chaos, three words come to my mind! "Blah, blah, blah." Greta Thunberg might not be your favorite zoomer but her dismissal of our world leaders climate rhetoric as "blah, blah, blah" at the beginning of COP26 in Glasgow was not just spot-on but frighteningly so!

Let me explain, unfortunately for Greta Thunberg and her army of Zoomers and Generation Alphers, Millenials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers, the penny has not quite dropped. You see our leaders are spewing  "climate rhetoric-blah, blah, blah" for one reason and one reason only! And you can see it in their attitude, behavior, and manners.

You see, dear reader, they know we "can't save the planet," it is broken, much too far down the line to fix, they don't know how to stop the slide, hell-the "supercomputers" they have built to better understand and take the problems can't help them.

Thursday, 7 April 2022 A WWIII scenario would be a perfect strategy to drastically reduce the world's population which would make the coming, "Great Reset" easier to control—Who knows, maybe Putin is just a Pawn in all this? He does appear to be stupid enough. . .

A WWIII scenario would be a perfect strategy to drastically reduce the population which would make the coming, "Great Reset" easier to control—Who knows, maybe Putin is just a Pawn in all this? He does appear to be stupid enough. 

According to the prominent cardiac physician, scholar, and professor of medicine Dr Peter McCullough, MD, who has recently been somewhat “none-personed” by the health industry, claimed the recent CoronaVirus Pandemic and subsequent vaccination drive is nothing more than an elitist plan to spread fear into the world's population which our governments have seized upon with lockdowns, forced mask-wearing and the denial of free choice. That seems fair enough to me?

There is one thing we all have which no government, no dictator, mad-man or killer can take away from us—Our relationship and conversations with God—And with a healthy dose of the Holy Spirit we can even be happy during these terrible times!

On the very day Ukrainian President Zelensky advised the world to stock up on anti-radiation pils and to quickly construct air raid shelters against Putin's increasing nuclear threat, our sun shoots off yet another X-class flare—And, is another, very good reason to maybe stock up those anti-radiation pils and build a sturdy air raid shelter, but, just a little bit deeper, because if Putin doesn't get you there are other ways. By the way, the X-class flare is not a danger to us—This time!




Plagues
A maximum-security prison in regional NSW had be emptied of inmates after it fell victim to a "horrendous" mice plague. Rodents have been devouring crops and cutting a destructive swathe through properties in the state's west and south since spring 2020.
In June, they caused all 420 inmates at Wellington Correctional Centre in the state's west to be sent to other facilities after they damaged the building, a budget estimates hearing heard on Friday. Prison staff were working in buildings where cavities and ceilings were full of dead mice, Acting Corrective Services NSW Commissioner Kevin Corcoran told the hearing.



Volcanoes

With 600 plus magnitude 5 or higher earthquakes, and more than 20 of them being mag 6 or greater in the last 12 months it must come as no great surprise the eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai volcano happened in the volatile region of the Tonga Trench on Saturday. The big question now is what impact will the eruption have to the Tonga region and our planet?

The population of Tonga is around 110,000 but understandably contact with the island is at the moment very difficult. The blast size is also not known yet but some experts are comparing it to something in the region of 1,000 times the size of the Hiroshima nuclear explosion in Japan during the war.



Major Quakes
A very powerful and shallow mag 7.0, reduced from mag 7.2 by USGS has rocked the Loyalty Islands in the night. It comes after the powerful mag 6.9 which struck earlier last night, I did mention in my report we could expect more major quakes, (mag 6 or higher) during the night. Full story here 

13 large aftershocks have also struck the islands. I can't find any information of damage or injuries at this moment. Two tsunami warnings issued for Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu have been lifted, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC). 


Extreme Weather

Today it was particularly wonderful, a warm August sun, fanned with a cool southwesterly breeze, the birds were singing, the fish were jumping and the insects chirping and the walk itself gave me a double shot of happy endorphins, lifting my spirit for the day ahead.

It is hard to imagine that just a few hundred kilometers south of this paradise the gates of hell have opened for many of my European neighbours.

An anticyclone, ironically named Lucifer has parked its fat butt over the Mediterranean countries of Italy, Greece, and Spain causing Sicily to record the hottest temperature ever in Europe when the mercury hit 48.8 deg C, 120 deg F yesterday beating the 48 deg C which was recorded in Athens Greece, back in 1977.


Hurricanes and cyclones

As Hurricane Sam churns in the Atlantic Ocean, NOAA satellites are carefully monitoring the powerful Category 4 storm, the strongest of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season to date.

Tropical Storm Sam formed on Sept. 23 in the eastern tropical Atlantic as the 18th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season. Only the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season had more named storms by this date, with 23. Sam rapidly reached hurricane status on Sept. 24 and intensified into a Category 4 hurricane by Sept. 25.

Sam is the fourth major hurricane (Category 3, 4, or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season. Just three days after becoming a named storm, Sam peaked in strength on Sept. 26 with sustained winds of 155 mph.


Space weather

Wednesday, 30 March 2022 Signs And Wonders—A very powerful X-class solar flare has exploded on the sun's surface this afternoon and a Coronal Mass Ejection, (CME) will almost certainly be heading toward Earth coupled with a Strong G3-class geomagnetic storm later tonight!

A very powerful X-class solar flare has exploded on the sun's surface this afternoon and a Coronal Mass Ejection, (CME) will almost certainly be heading toward Earth. According to Spaceweather.com, the source is active sunspot AR2975--the same sunspot that has already hurled at least two CMEs, (M-class) toward Earth this week.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the flare's extreme ultraviolet flash: Radiation from the flare ionised the top of Earth's atmosphere, causing a shortwave radio blackout over the Americas. Aviators, mariners, and ham radio operators may have noticed unusual propagation effects at frequencies below 30 MHz. A CME is almost certainly emerging from the blast site. SOHO coronagraphs have not yet detected the cloud, but there is strong circumstantial evidence. 



Manmade disasters
The analysis identifies 56 new chemicals in water supplies – including some linked to critical diseases.

Water utilities and regulators in the US have identified 56 new contaminants in drinking water over the past two years, a list that includes dangerous substances linked to a range of health problems such as cancer, reproductive disruption, liver disease, and much more.

The revelation is part of an analysis of the nation’s water utilities’ contamination records by the Environmental Working Group, a clean water advocate that has now updated its database for the first time since 2019. It found that the jump is partly driven by newly identified PFAS, a toxic class of “forever chemicals” that are widely used across dozens of industries and are thought to be contaminating the drinking water for more than 100 million people.



Climate Change 

Friday, 20 May 2022 What ever autumn 2022 has in store for us—Massive food shortages, incredible inflation, un-payable energy bills, poverty, evictions, civil unrest, another Covid variant and maybe even WWIII—Remember the biggest underlying threat to our survival as a species is climate change!

I do know there are many global warming/climate change sceptics out there, however, instead of me bombarding you with loads of science and graphs, here is my pragmatic take, dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations. Over the years, I have noted Holland is getting hotter, below are my honest views on a tricky subject.In early August 2020 temperatures in many parts of Europe for the coming week at the very least, was set to exceed 40 deg C, (104F). Now, for people living in Arizona or North Africa, 40 deg C may seem like a walk in the park but in other countries, such as Belgium, Holland, Germany etc, 40 deg C is extremely uncomfortable, even dangerous. You see, our infrastructure is not built for these types of temperatures, most of us don't have airco for instance. Our homes are built to trap heat, not to reflect it.



Disease

Monday, 4 April 2022 Heads Up! 3% of all egg-laying chickens have died or been killed and nearly 20 million birds in total dead in the US due to the highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) Something the CDC failed to mention in their report avian influenza has crossed over to humans in other parts of the world recently.

With the war in Ukraine along with other disasters such as Covid-19 taking up much of the media it may come as a shock to many of you that at the moment the US is having another health crisis—Bird, or avian flue. More than 3% of the country's egg-laying chickens have died or been culled due to the fast-spreading disease—A total of nearly 20 million birds have died due to the highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) which began earlier this year. The supply crisis due to feed shortages caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine is expected to increase the supply shortages, which will push-up prices even higher.



Animal Die-Offs

Friday, 12 November 2021 What comes out of the ocean is an indication as to the health of what's in the ocean... The lower western coast of Africa, which was once a paradise is spewing up thousands of emancipated and dead seals along with tens of thousands of dead birds leaving experts stumped

Authorities in the Western Cape are worried about the alarming number of seal deaths recently. Nearly two hundred animals were buried on Tuesday, 9 November and hundreds more reportedly died over the past weekend but actually, the situation is much much worse than the official narrative, someone didn't do their homework or they just don't want us to know the true story!

There is a famous phrase: what comes out of the ocean is an indication as to the health of what's in the ocean... The western coast of Africa, which was once a paradise is now showing signs of collapse. 

The Western Cape MEC of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Anton Bredell, said the provincial government is investigating the seal deaths – the first reports of the higher than normal mortality rate emerged in September, according to the Mail and Guardian when malnourished-looking cape fur Seals washed ashore in Paternoster, Shelly Beach, and Elands Bay.


Environment

In an incredible disregard for life, the US Navy has used a 40,000lb explosive to test a warship in 'Full Ship Shock Trial.'

The United States Navy has been carrying out 'Full Ship Shock Trials' off the country's east coast. The 40,000lb (18,143kg) explosion was detonated as part of a test to assess the aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford's ability to withstand battle conditions. The US Geological Survey registered the explosion as a 3.9 magnitude earthquake. Following the trials, the warship will return to a dry dock to undergo modernisation, maintenance and repairs.



Wildfires

“We used to say ‘unprecedented and historic.’ We’re past that now.” Sugar fire becomes California’s first ‘megafire’ of the year as the Dixie fire triples in size; California experienced a record wildfire season in 2020 but 2021 is already outpacing it

As the Dixie fire in Butte County balloons in size, the Sugar fire burning in Plumas National Forest north of Sacramento has become the first 100,000-acre fire in California this year. The lightning-sparked Sugar fire ignited July 2 and quickly swelled in size as crews battled extreme temperatures and strong gusts of wind.

In the days that followed, spot fires and flareups made it difficult for firefighters to gain a footing on the blaze, officials said. At one point, it grew with such velocity that its massive cloud of smoke, ash, and heat generated its own lightning.

George Orwell's classic novel, 1984 begins:

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.

But if he had written it today, the opening paragraph could have been much worse— Something like this?

It was an incredibly hot, sticky, day in April as the early heatwave intensified. The neural-network gently reminded people it was thirteen-o-clock. Winston Smith, his face protected by a mask, nuzzled his chin into his hungry frame in an effort to escape the hot dusty chemical laden wind. He slipped through the glass doors of "Rainbow Mansions" glancing into the sky and seeing a sickly yellowish haze

Let's talk about our healthy diets, even some of that organic fish loved by millions called salmon. But first, I would encourage you to grab Killer algae bloom shake, yum! Do not worry about gaining weight from gulping too much of it. Unofficially, it is called the "very fast death factor shake." Yep, it has been said that the CIA at least at one time used it in suicide pills so that their agents could off-themselves if needed when captured by the enemy. And ladies, why not pick up some of those pills yourself? After all, when he dies in his sleep it will be ruled “Death by Covid!” There is a super deal on these shakes right now in Florida, but you can get them in many coastal places. Now do not be disappointed, they only come in the color RED.


But do not lose heart! You can grab one even on a remote trail in Sierra National Forest. Yep, just hike the Devil's Gulch Trail.



Photo of the day
A letter from Holland: Unusual skies this week in the Amsterdam region as the world enters lockdown: Libertine, tolerant and free Amsterdam is at this moment just like the rest of the world, empty as the Covid-19 threat takes hold
This time of the year where I live, just north of Amsterdam on the Dutch West Coast we are usually inundated with tourists from all over Europe but not this year. Libertine, tolerant and free Amsterdam is at this moment just like the rest of the world, empty. The cannabis selling coffee shops, sex shops and bars have all been closed down due to the coronavirus, these places are only used by tourists anyway.

As I walk my dog every day I come across only occasional other dog walkers or runners who are only too ready to distance themselves from me, eying me with caution. Empty busses pass me by as do the occasional automobile, however, Holland wouldn't be Holland without bicycles and scooters and, this is the mode of transport at the moment, especially for the kids.
