SOTT Earth Changes Summary – February 2017: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


SOTT ‘Earth Changes’ video summary for February 2017: extreme weather events, environmental indicators of ‘planetary upheaval’ (seismic, volcanic, etc) and Near-Earth Objects in the form of meteor fireballs.

Februrary 2017 continued on as January started. Massive flooding in California due to “atmospheric rivers” dumping large amounts of rain on coastal areas and snow on the Sierra Nevada. The snow melt from this caused further flooding in Nevada. Eastern Canada also experienced record snowfall, as did Iran, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Japan.

Wildfires broke out in Eastern Australia and New Zealand while record rainfall inundated Western Australia. Major flooding also hit several South American nations including Chile, Peru and Colombia.

There are at least 30 active volcanoes around the world right now, including a really impressive one in Guatemala. Massive earth cracks opened in Pakistan and Italy.

These are just some of the chaotic events we present in this month’s Sott ‘Earth Changes’ video compilation.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary – September 2015: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


It’s also very important at this time, to stay well grounded to the Earth Mother. Make it part of your daily routine send out feelings of love, gratitude, praise, calmness, peace, serenity and conscious evolution to the planetary collective of nature spirits, elementals, ancestral spirits and human souls.
We are the ONES Gaia has been waiting for, let’s get busy holding sacred space for Earth changes to manifest as safely as possible for all living BEings.
All my love, blessings and aloha! Annette

Comment: Please note that due to planetary/climate chaos increasing month by month, we can only show a limited selection of global events. Considering that these ‘localized’ events, multiplied many times over, are occurring simultaneously all over the planet, the scale of destruction and impact on people’s lives becomes almost unimaginable.

No matter the season or ‘normal’ climate, these days vehicles, homes and people are being washed away in deluges – the world over – on a regular basis. Forget “one month’s average rainfall falling within hours” – last month, TWO MONTHS’ average rainfall fell within a day and turned parts of southern Japan into inland seas. In the US, Utah experienced its worst ever flash-flooding, and the entire Eastern Seaboard was soaked with up to a foot of rain. This month, we also have clips of deluges in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Sierra Leone, and New Zealand.

Violent volcanic eruptions in Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Indonesia foreshadowed a massive 8.3 magnitude earthquake off Chile, which sent a 4.5 meter tsunami crashing into the coast and causing widespread damage. Hailstones the size of footballs fell in Naples, Italy. Brisbane, Australia, was buried in up to 4 inches (8cm) of hail, while a gigantic hole opened up on a nearby beach and swallowed a campsite. The rate of meteor fireball sightings continues to increase; in September there were spectacular sightings over Bangkok and Los Angeles.

Wildfires continue burning up much of California, which last month saw its ‘third-largest’ wildfire in history as whole towns were consumed and tens of thousands of residents were forced to flee. The other major outbreak of wildfires on the planet in September occurred in Indonesia, from where a smoky haze enveloped much of southeast Asia for the second time in three years. ‘Slash-and-burn’ farming is being blamed, but the fires occur in peatlands that release lots of methane, leaving us wondering if the primary fuel source for these fires is coming up from below.

Extreme weather also hit the Middle East, which was engulfed in an ‘unprecedented’ sandstorm that stretched from Iraq to Cyprus and south to Saudi Arabia. A tragic and incredibly symbolic event occurred in the heart of Islam’s ‘holy city’ on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when a powerful and unusual thunderstorm descended on Mecca and winds blew a large construction crane belonging to Bin Laden Construction onto the Grand Mosque. 111 people were killed and hundreds more injured.

These were the signs of the times in September 2015…

Shasta County, CA Supervisors 7/17/15 Hearing: Geoengineering Investigation Demanded By Numerous Experts ~ Dane Wigington


YES!! Shasta County Supervisors demand an investigation after expert scientific testimony from Dane Wiggington, airline pilots, doctors, biologists, attorneys and others that chemtrails threaten the entire web of life on the planet. This hearing topples the first domino for more hearings and investigations. The domino’s are falling everywhere lately…interesting times indeed 🙂

http://GeoengineeringWatch.org
https://www.facebook.com/dane.wigingt…
On July 15th, 2014, citizens from Northern California rallied to create the largest attendance ever at the Shasta County Supervisors chambers (400+, chairman Les Baugh confirmed this attendance record at the start of the meeting). The primary purpose of this meeting was to present information that proves there is a very dire heavy metal contamination and UV radiation issue across the Shasta County region (and the world). A list of 10 experts presented data to the board to confirm the legitimacy of the concerns being addressed. At the end of the presentation, the board voted unanimously to investigate the heavy metal contamination and passed resolutions accordingly. The video below documents the events of this landmark day in the fight to expose the crime of global geoengineering, all experts are identified with labels in the video (the new edited, condensed version).

6/20/2015 — SOFTBALL sized hail in South Dakota — Major supercell storm produces tornadoes + large hail


Amazing videos are surfacing from around Rapid City South Dakota following a large supercell thunderstorm outbreak yesterday – June 19, 2015.

The RADAR feed (seen below) shows the storm as it developed and progressed in a near direct line towards the RADAR station transmitter.

Literally making a direct path towards the tower, and becoming the most intense as it passed nearby the NWS office.

Main stream media report on this severe weather outbreak:

“Earth Has Shifted” – Inuit Elders Issue Warning To NASA And The World


By Susan Duclos

InuitElders.jpg

The Inuits are indigenus people that inhabit the arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather…. and they are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn’t the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events.

The earth has shifted, tilted or as they put it, “wobbled” to the north and they all agree “Their sky has changed!”

The elders maintain the Sun doesn’t rise were it used too, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before. The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed.

The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.

The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North.

In the first video below I go over an article over at The Big Wobble Almanac and in the videos following that, we see some of the extreme weather events being attributed to this “wobble.”

In the article it states that NASA scientists and experts are “worried” by the information the Inuit Elders are providing for them.

Week 2 (re-run 🙂

Week 1

Signs Of Change, Mid April – May 8, 2013


Wow! Gaia is really wreaking havoc, what’s really incredible is considering the massive flooding, a dam breaking, the large earthquakes and volcanic activity taking place in some of the poorest parts of the world, “relatively” few lives appear to have been lost.

Naturally my prayers go out to all the families have who lost loved ones, but when you take a look at the sheer volume of destruction in some places, IMO the death toll could’ve been considerably higher. For instance, tornado’s in Italy are rare, people there likely haven’t been taught how to take cover and stay safe in tornadic conditions; in addition, there weren’t any sirens to forewarn people in the tornado’s path either.

Earths management team has a good handle on assisting Gaia and her children through the shift with with as little loss of life as possible. Fortunately, we’re a resilient race and can be quite resourceful when faced with crisis, and lucky survivors when confronting danger. There’s no reason for fear, we’re always right where we’re supposed to be…

Also, I think it was in the second video that a helicopter cameraman catches footage of Saturn’s rings from his camera!! Very cool..

Here’s the last three weeks of “Signs of Change”…

Nine people killed as freak hailstorm rains massive boulders down on Indian villages


  • The hail storm covered the entire villages under the snow like blanket
  • Destroyed crops, houses and live stock in seven villages
  • The hailstones started falling from the sky on Tuesday night

By Jill Reilly

31 January 2013

Hailstones the size of boulders have rained down on villages in southern India.

At least nine people were killed when the violent weather hit several villages in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

The hailstorm which lasted for almost 20 minutes, destroyed crops, houses and live stock, causing devastating financial implications for residents.

WORLD’S DEADLIEST HAILSTORMS

The world’s deadliest hailstorms –  perhaps the largest hailstones – occur on the Deccan Plateau of northern India and in Bangladesh.

The heaviest authenticated hailstone ever measured was 2.25 pounds – it fell in Bangladesh on April 14, 1986.

Anecdotal reports claimed the stones were the size of ‘pumpkins’ and ninety-two people died.

It was once-in-lifetime experience for people living in seven villages in Chevella, Moinabad and Shankarpally.

The hailstones started falling from the sky on Tuesday night and covered the entire villages under the snow-like blanket.

Some women were seen attempting to sweep up the massive boulders using flimsy brushes more suited to lighter debris.

Dr K. Sitarama, director, Meteorological Centre Hyderabad, said: ‘The hailstorm was caused by an intense thunderstorm.

‘Such occurances are highly localised and restricted to a small area.’

The storm in the south was extremely rare as the deadliest hailstorms, and perhaps the largest hailstones, in the world occur on the Deccan Plateau of northern India and in Bangladesh.

Susan’s Comment: I have made parrallels with the movie The Day After Tomorrow for years, but this is still shocking… I have written over and over again about the forces that are required to allow hailstones to be suspended in the atmosphere can only be attained by strong vertical electric fields and electromagnetic currents that will hail to grow to the size of tennis balls and bricks, but now a report of boulder-sized hail… Lets face it, the message of the ancients was lost and humanity has simply got some major problems in store just surviving on this planet.

Freak tennis ball sized hail storm hits Malta

Malta hail

© Niki Caruana

Insurance companies were faced with a flood of claims yesterday following Tuesday’s freak hail storm that hit the north and east of Malta.

Certain crops can be replanted but some will have lost everything

Middlesea Insurance said they received a flurry of claims for damage at property located in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, St Andrew’s, Għargħur, Mosta, Naxxar and San Pawl Tat-Tarġa.

These came in the wake of reports of tennis ball-sized hailstones lashing certain localities around midday on Tuesday.

Claims under property insurance policies were submitted for damage to solar water heaters, photovoltaic panels, glass and water pipes, said Middlesea’s chief claims officer, Patrick Muscat.

A number of private motor vehicle claims were also filed under comprehensive policies.

Asked if hail was considered an ‘act of God’ by insurance companies, Mr Muscat said the term was an old misnomer that should be avoided. “It is now standard practice to have storm cover under most, if not all, property insurance policies,” he explained.

Mile-End car repairs and towing services said it was busier than usual when the storm hit.

“We were called to accidents in Rabat, Mosta and Naxxar. The water on the road was a big problem,” a spokesman said.

However, they did not have an unusually high number of repairs yesterday – “just a few for spark plugs caused by water damage”.

The hail mostly caused slight cosmetic damage to vehicles, the spokesman added.

Farmers also suffered with some having their crops destroyed by the hail, according to Joe Galea, president of the Rural Manikata Cooperative.

Although the farms around Manikata were unaffected, Mr Galea said farmers in the Mosta, Rabat and Ta’ Qali areas were not so fortunate, with potatoes and onions badly hit.

“The storm did not hit everywhere but some farmers were very unlucky. Certain crops can be replanted but some will have lost everything,” he said.

“It’s too early to say if they will ask for compensation from the Government,” Mr Galea said.

There were widespread reports of the hailstones denting solar panels even though a spokesman for Solar Solutions in Naxxar said they had received no calls about damage to products they had sold as of 11am yesterday.

“Our solar heaters have thick security glass and are designed to withstand some punishment. Good quality solar panels would not normally be damaged by hailstones,” he said.

In Għargħur, which bore the brunt of the storm, locals enjoying morning refreshments in San Bartilmew band club said many cars belonging to residents were dented and windows were broken.

One woman said her adult son was distraught after his 35 racing pigeons, costing some €2,000, were caught in the hailstorm.

“Lots of them did not come home and the ones that did were badly injured. One lost an eye,” she said.

The parish priest also suffered extensive damage to his home, according to locals, but he was not available to comment when The Times visited his house.

Note: Human’s aren’t the only ones suffering through Earth changes,  wildlife can be hard hit as well. The tragic story of the racing pigeons is one great example of what can happen to flocks of birds that get caught in these storms…so sad.

Planet Earth is Experiencing Extreme Phenomenons


 

Critter invasions of biblical proportions, mosquito towers, hailstorms from hell, bubonic plaque, deadly beetle bites and more…definitely an interesting time to be alive! Mother nature sure is busy cleansing and purging thousands of years of dark energy, aetheric toxins built up over the millennium that need to be cleared…keep your seat belts on by meditating daily to stay anchored and rise above the fear. Just remember 90% of reality is a matter of imagination, perception and belief so we ALWAYS have the power to change our circumstance regardless of the predicament we may find our self in ~ ALWAYS!
