Russian Meteor impact feb 2013.

A possible feedback event within the  projects six month (2013) window, has occurred in Russia.

In 2008 The Farsight institute run by Courtney Brown, Ph.D. initiated a long term Remote viewing project to look ahead to 2013 and within the first seven months of 2013 to see if the earth and climate was any different form the locations in 2008. The project had participants form several different remote viewing methodologies and schools working together for the first time.

The project involved the remote viewers looking at locations both in 2008 and then again in 2013and to try to describe IF there were any changes to the earth/climate within the data. All the locations were BLIND, and the time periods were BLIND, in fact when the remote viewers did their RV data – the targets had not even been assigned yet – this was done after the fact by a totally random process. No one knew what location of what year (2008 or 2013) they were remote viewing.

The data surprised all especially Courtney who analysed over 100 remote viewing transcripts for this project. All the 2008 data seemed to indicate a normal earth and weather and yet most for the 2013 data seemed to indicate severe/extreme weather and earth changes. All this fell into play within a random and BLIND process. The project was all done in public and the RV data has been available in in various formats online since 2008.

Courtney’s initial impressions from the 2013 data were:

“In general, these remote-viewing data suggest the following types of physical changes across many of the above geographical locations by mid-2013:

  1. Impacts from what appear to be large meteors leading to tsunamis and possible volcanism
  2. Extensive and forceful flooding of coastal areas
  3. Excessive solar radiation
  4. Storms and other severe weather”

These last few days we have all watched the many videos coming out from Russia of the meteor impact. The news sources report:

“(Reuters) – A meteor streaked across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday, raining fireballs over a wide area and causing a shock wave that smashed windows, damaged buildings and injured more than 1,000 people. People heading to work in Chelyabinsk heard what sounded like an explosion, saw a bright light and then felt the shock wave, according to a Reuters correspondent in the industrial city 1,500 km (950 miles) east of Moscow.

The fireball, travelling at a speed of 30 km (19 miles) per second according to Russian space agency Roscosmos, had blazed across the horizon,leaving a long white trail that could be seen as far as 200 km (125 miles) away.

Car alarms went off, thousands of windows shattered and mobile phone networks were disrupted. The Interior Ministry said the meteor explosion, avery rare spectacle, also unleashed a sonic boom. “I was driving to work, it was quite dark, but it suddenly became as bright as if it were day,” said Viktor Prokofiev, 36, a resident of Yekaterinburg in the Urals Mountains.

“I felt like I was blinded by headlights.” The meteor, which weighed about 10 tons and may have been made of iron, entered Earth’s atmosphere and broke apart 30-50 km (19-31 miles) above ground, according to Russia’s Academy of Sciences.”

Video feedback:

The project is ongoing – so we cant fully analyze the remote viewing predictive data or any potential feedback until June 2013 – but it is very interesting.

 

 

 

Noble Prize winner and atmospheric scientist says more droughts, floods are coming seasons due to climate change

Noble Prize winner and atmospheric scientist Donald Wuebbles says more droughts, floods and severe winter are likely in coming seasons due to climate change. He will present current findings on extreme weather in Boston next week at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a gathering of thousands of scientists.

“U.S. Climate and Weather Extremes: Past, Present, and Future,” one of several days of AAAS sessions, will feature Wuebbles and five other speakers assessing the link between climate change and extreme weather events.

Panel organizer and climate researcher Connie Woodhouse, of the University of Arizona, said such extremes don’t happen very often and this meeting is “a message of caution” to scientists and the public.

“I think there’ll probably be some clarification of what we can say about extremes with regards to climate change,” Woodhouse said, “and what we can expect looking into the future.”

Wuebbles, who teaches atmospheric science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will speak on “Severe Weather in the United States under a Changing Climate” as part of the panel.

Wuebbles is a lead author for both the 2013 National Climate Assessment and the next major U.N. report on climate change that will be released this year by the International Panel on Climate Change. The panel, as a group that included Wuebbles, won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.

In a preview interview, Wuebbles said heat waves and extreme precipitation in the U.S. are on the rise, as they have been over the last 50 years, and there is a strong link between these severe weather events and the changing climate. Global temperatures have warmed about 1.5 degrees F on average.

“We are projecting significantly more of [total] rainfall coming as a larger event,” Wuebbles said. “So, there is more of a possibility of droughts [in the summer], and in the winter and spring more of a likelihood for floods.”

Woodhouse said the meeting will focus on the role of climate and extreme weather on droughts in Texas and North America, as well as on wild animal species. She said speakers will be looking at how the media covers extreme weather and climate as well.

Wuebbles said weather forecasters should be doing more to incorporate the changing climate into their predictions and looking at the “long-term.” He said when forecasters look at changes in climate over longer periods of time they tend to have those “something’s happening” moments.

“Short-term forecasters are still catching up,” Wuebbles said. “They are so focused on this near-term thing that they are missing the forest for the trees.”

Powerful Solomon Islands earthquake triggers tsunami

A powerful and shallow earthquake off the Solomon Islands has triggered a tsunami in the South Pacific.

he 8.0 magnitude earthquake, followed by at least five aftershocks, struck at a very shallow depth of only three miles about 200 miles east of Kira Kira in the Solomons, prompting reports that several villages had been destroyed.

Shortly later, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii issued a tsunami warning for the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Kosrae, Fiji, Kiribati, and Wallis and Futuna islands.

A tsunami watch was issued for the rest of the South Pacific nations, including Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia, however, the Australian Weather Bureau said there was no threat to the nation’s mainland or islands.

France issued a tsunami alert for its Pacific territory New Caledonia, saying the tsunami was scheduled to hit at 3pm local time (4am GMT). Residents near the coast were being advised to evacuate immediately.

29 jan, 2013 – Areas of Sydney flooded by heaviest rainfall in a decade

Sydney is experiencing its heaviest rainfall in a decade as wild weather from ex-cyclone Oswald passes through the region.

Parts of Sydney have been drenched in their heaviest daily rainfall totals in more than a decade as a wild storm system washed over the city on Monday night after causing havoc in the north of the state and in Queensland.

The surf is going to be dangerous for a fair while after this rain clears, probably until the end of the week. The sea is going to be pretty mucky as well.

About 1500 residents downstream of Grafton spent the night in emergency accommodation after being evacuated due to the storm, which has claimed four lives in Queensland, including that of a three-year-old boy who was hit by a falling tree in Brisbane’s north.

Severe weather warning issued after Sydney temperature hits record high of 45.8 degrees

A severe weather warning has been issued for Sydney, just hours after the city registered its hottest day on record.

The warning for heavy rain and damaging winds was also issued for the NSW Central Tablelands and parts of the Hunter, Illawarra and Central West Slopes and Plains Forecast Districts.

Earlier, the mercury hit 45.8 degrees in the city at 2.55pm. The previous high of 45.3 degrees was recorded in January 1939 at Observatory Hill.

Many parts of NSW had hovered around 45 degrees at lunchtime on Friday as a fiery air mass from inland Australia moved over the state, pushing the mercury well above the forecast maximum.

In Sydney, the original forecast was that the temperature would reach a maximum of 39 degrees in the city. But by 12.30pm the mercury had already hit a stifling 43.3 degrees at Observatory Hill, climbing to 45 degrees at 1.43pm, 45.2 degrees at 1.58pm, 45.3 degrees at 2.27pm and 45.7 degrees at 2.54pm. The city’s temperature dropped to 33.9 degrees at 5.04pm.

Jan 27, 2013 – Sydney braces for wild weather as cyclone system moves south

THE heavy rainfall following cyclone Oswald which has caused widespread flooding in Queensland is forecast to hit Sydney on Monday as long-weekend holidaymakers return to the city.

Experts describe the flooding and tornadoes battering the east coast as the worst they have seen in 30 years.

The weather bureau issued a severe weather warning for parts of the state with heavy rainfall and winds of up to 140 km/h expected. Up to 300 millimetres of rain could fall in areas of Sydney over 24 hours from Monday morning.

The Queensland Premier, Campbell Newman, said central Brisbane was expected to flood on Tuesday and Wednesday but the levels will not be as devastating as they were in 2011.

If current projections play out, 3600 residential properties will be affected in Brisbane and of those, 2100 are unit dwellings where only ground floor flooding is expected. About 1250 businesses are also expected to be affected while about 50 homes are projected to be inundated in the Ipswich suburb of Goodna.

Mr Newman called in the army to help with the crisis, as Bundaberg prepared for the worst flooding in more than a century.

Jan 27, 2013 – Sixth tornado hits southeast Queensland

A sixth tornado has hit Queensland’s Bundaberg region and forecasters say more could develop, including over Brisbane, as the day wears on.

There were unconfirmed reports this morning of a tornado on the weather radar at Bribie Island.

Four people were injured when a sixth tornado hit the Bundaberg region early on Sunday, tearing roofs from some properties at Burrum Heads.

Those injured include a man who had a tree fall on him at a local caravan park, the ABC reports.

The Department of Community Safety said none of the four people were believed to have serious injuries.

Five other twisters hit the Bundaberg region on Saturday.

There were also reports of tornado activity early on Sunday at Bribie Island north of Brisbane.

It’s unclear if that has caused any damage.

The Bureau of Meteorology has warned communities including Brisbane and the Sunshine and Gold coasts could be hit by tornado activity on Sunday as the low pressure system spawned by ex-cyclone Oswald moves towards NSW.

The Bundaberg Regional Council is expecting 200 homes and 100 businesses to flood on Sunday if levels in the Burnett River continue to rise, as expected.

About a dozen homes and businesses have already flooded in the city’s north.

At Gladstone, north of Bundaberg, 400 properties have been evacuated near the Boyne River.Gladstone mayor Gail Sellers says the Awoonga Dam is well beyond capacity and more than eight metres of water is spilling over the dam wall – something never seen before.

‘‘And we’ve still got more to come,’’ she told the ABC.

Meanwhile, to the north of Brisbane, the Moreton Bay Regional Council has concerns for 4000 low-lying properties that could be at risk from a storm surge on Sunday.

Mayor Allan Sutherland says three evacuation centres have been opened on Bribie Island and at Caboolture to aid residents who might have to leave their properties.

The State Emergency Service received more than 800 requests for assistance in the 24 hours to 5am (AEST) on Sunday, most from Bundaberg south to the Sunshine Coast.

There have been several swift water rescues, with crews still working to save two people from the flooded Widgee Creek near Gympie.

Four homes have also gone under water at Woolooga, west of Gympie, the ABC reports.

In the town of Biloela, inland from Gladstone, more than 40 people were evacuated as water levels there rose.

The chaotic weather has been spawned by a low pressure system that was ex-tropical cyclone Oswald.

It’s currently moving towards the Sunshine Coast, after hovering over Gladstone over the past two days.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued severe weather warnings for communities from central Queensland down to the NSW border.

Forecaster Amber Young said there was a good chance of ongoing tornado activity, including on the Sunshine Coast, in Brisbane, and on the Gold Coast on Sunday.Strong low-level winds were feeding into the low pressure system to create conditions that spawned tornadoes.

‘‘Considering those conditions are not only going to maintain, but possibly worsen as well, there’s a realistic possibility of further tornado activity,’’ Ms Young said.

Massive melting of Andes glaciers

Glaciers in the tropical Andes have shrunk by 30-50% since the 1970s, according to a study.

The glaciers, which provide fresh water for tens of millions in South America, are retreating at their fastest rate in the past 300 years.

The study included data on about half of all Andean glaciers and blamed the melting on an average temperature rise of 0.7C from 1950-1994.

Details appear in the academic journal The Cryosphere.

The authors report that glaciers are retreating everywhere in the tropical Andes, but the melting is more pronounced for small glaciers at low altitudes.

The Extreme Weather Threat That’s All Around Us

This is not a good time to be a climate change denier. After a record-breaking year of dangerous weather in 2012—following a destructive year in 2011—scientific reports are rolling out this month showing extreme weather in the U.S. is on the rise, threatening Americans today with bone-bleaching drought, fueling more devastating floods and violent storms, and posing threats of even greater weather disasters in the future. Climate change is suddenly all around us.

Last week the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration released a report ranking 2012 as the hottest year ever recorded in the lower 48 states—and one of the most volatile in terms of extreme weather events. Then this week came the draft of the National Climate Assessment, a four-year comprehensive study involving hundreds of scientists and experts, that listed a myriad of menacing climate threats Americans are facing now and in the near future. The draft report unequivocally blamed human activities—mainly the burning of fossil fuels—for driving climate change’s rising environmental, health and economic toll in the U.S.

On top of all these reports, a newly-released interactive NRDC map shows that 2012 extreme weather events broke 3,527 monthly records for heat, rain and snow across the U.S. in one of the costliest natural disaster years ever recorded. Insurance giant MunichRe estimates that an astounding 90 percent of the world’s insured losses occurred in the U.S. last year, much of it due to the devastating drought across much of the country’s midsection and to Superstorm Sandy, the epic northeastern hurricane that struck in November.

New Report: Global Warming Undeniable, Extreme Weather Getting Worse

This post was coauthored by SACE Policy & Communications Director, Jennifer Rennicks.

The draft of the newest National Climate Assessment (NCA) report was officially made available today, and the findings for this third climate assessment aren’t comforting:

Climate change is already affecting the American people. Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense, including heat waves, heavy downpours, and, in some regions, floods and droughts. Sea level is rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and glaciers and arctic sea ice are melting. These changes are part of the pattern of global climate change, which is primarily driven by human activity.

From the report’s Executive Summary

From the report’s first sentence, the findings are made very clear: Climate change is happening now and it is hurting people.  This is a warning that the scientists and climate action advocates, like SACE, have cautioned about for some time.  In fact, we have an extensive blog archive about the effects that global warming-fueled extreme weather is having on our communities in the Southeast.

Even though we have known about these impacts for some time, this version of the NCA report is particularly significant for a couple reasons:

1) Scientists are more confidently linking the extreme weather we’ve seen in our daily lives to climate change.  Linking specific weather events to climate change has always been approached with caution, but because of the frequency and the trend of weather events we’ve seen in recent years, the link is becoming more and more clearly significant.

2) The report is one more piece of evidence blowing the climate denial argument and culture out of the water.  This report was a joint collaboration of hundreds of industry leaders, scientific institutions, and government agencies.  Even two of environmentalists’ most-disliked corporations fed into the process: Monsanto and Chevron.  If even these titans of industry are helping the nation prepare for climate change, it must be conceded that global warming is in fact of concern to conservatives and liberals, big businesses and eco-types alike.
