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…

Extreme Weather Phenomena Escalating Worldwide

Published on May 7, 2013

SuspectSky SuspectSky

Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented and bizarre weather phenomena – from record breaking heat and cold to increasing earthquake activity worldwide. It’s not just global warming, but rather, a system wide surge of strange weather activity.

This video compiles extreme earth changes and weather events, with footage including meteors entering the atmosphere, sinkholes opening up worldwide, the discovery of dark lightning, increasing volcano activity, and a uniquely unusual UFO sighting in Ireland.

While this video does NOT imply extreme weather is a result of human activity – it does suggest that climate change is real and occurring all around us. Whatever the source, one may ask – will extreme weather define our world’s history for decades to come?


Strong winds, high water levels give cause for concern in the north of the Netherlands

Thursday 05 January 2012

Storm force winds and heavy rain battered northern parts of the Netherlands on Thursday
as weather bureau KNMI issued a code orange weather warning.

Winds of up to 110 kph hit northern coastal areas, and there was considerable damage
inland as gales brought down trees and damaged buildings.

At least 30 flights were cancelled at Schiphol airport because of the strong winds and
there was considerable disruption on rush-hour trains.

Ferry services to the Wadden islands have also been cancelled or delayed and Friesland
closed most of its inland waterways to shipping.

Some roads have been closed because of falling trees and other debris, and part of the
A73 in Limburg was closed for a time because of a mud stream.


Meanwhile, some 80 people were evacuated from the Groningen village of Tolbert because
a dyke is threatening to break through.

Oil and gas company Nam has closed down two gas extraction plants which are also
located on the polder.

The heavy rain over the past few days has led water boards in Groningen to open up
emergency flood plains in several places. Although there is no cause for alarm, officials
said, some dykes have been reinforced.


On Thursday morning, officials decided to open two nature reserves up to excess water in
an effort to stop parts of Groningen, Hoogezand and Winschoten flooding, Nos television

Officials throughout Friesland, Groningen and Drenthe are monitoring events closely as
water levels reach a 14-year high, Nos television said.

Pumps are operating round the clock in the three northern provinces to shift excess water
to the sea or IJsselmeer lake.

In Dordrecht, south of Rotterdam, officials have issued 4,000 sandbags to try to stop the
city centre river breaking its banks, Nos television reports.…_heavy_rai.php

Dangerous Weather Alert UK – Winds Up to 200 knots 230 mph Recorded

George Green warned of 300mph winds, we’re getting close and they’re not even calling it a hurricane. These are just strong winds associated with a severe weather system “blowing’ through.

Does anyone else suspect this is a direct consequence from the BP oil DISASTER that shut down the Gulf loop current in 2010?

Billion-dollar weather disasters smash US record

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration added two disasters to the list Wednesday, bringing the total to 12. The two are wildfires in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and the mid-June tornadoes and severe weather. – Reuters Photo

WASHINGTON: America smashed the record for billion-dollar weather disasters this year with a deadly dozen, and counting.

With an almost biblical onslaught of twisters, floods, snow, drought, heat and wildfire, the U.S. in 2011 has seen more weather catastrophes that caused at least $1 billion in damage than it did in all of the 1980s, even after the dollar figures from back then are adjusted for inflation.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration added two disasters to the list Wednesday, bringing the total to 12. The two are wildfires in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and the mid-June tornadoes and severe weather.

NOAA uses $1 billion as a benchmark for the worst weather disasters.

Extreme weather in America this year has killed more than 1,000 people, according to National Weather Service Director Jack Hayes. The dozen billion-dollar disasters alone add up to $52 billion.

The old record for $1 billion disasters was nine, in 2008.

Hayes, a meteorologist since 1970, said he has never seen a year for extreme weather like this, calling it “the deadly, destructive and relentless 2011.”

This year’s total may not stop at 12. Officials are still adding up the damage from the Tropical Storm Lee and the pre-Halloween Northeast snowstorm, and so far each is at $750 million. And there’s still nearly a month left in the year.

Scientists blame an unlucky combination of global warming and freak chance. They say even with the long-predicted increase in weather extremes triggered by manmade climate change, 2011 in the US was wilder than they had predicted. For example, the six large outbreaks of tornadoes cannot be attributed to global warming, scientists say.

“The degree of devastation is extreme in and of itself, and it would be tempting to say it’s a sign of things to come, though we would be hard-pressed to see such a convergence of circumstances occurring in one single year again for a while,” said Jerry Meehl, a climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.

Another factor in the rising number of billion-dollar calamities: “More people and more stuff in harm’s way,” such as in coastal areas, said NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco.

“What we’re seeing this year is not just an anomalous year, but a harbinger of things to come,” with heat waves, droughts and other extreme weather, Lubchenco said Wednesday at an American Geophysical Union science conference in San Francisco.

The number of weather catastrophes that pass the billion-dollar mark when adjusted into constant dollars is increasing with each decade. In the 1980s, the country averaged slightly more than one a year. In the 1990s, it was 3.8 a year. It jumped to 4.6 in the first decade of this century. And in the past two years, it has averaged 7.5.

Other years had higher overall damage figures because of one gargantuan disaster, such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and a 1988 drought.

But this is not just about numbers.

“Each of these events is a huge disaster for victims who experience them,” Lubchenco said in an email. “They are an unprecedented challenge for the nation.”

Half the billion-dollar disasters were tornado outbreaks in one of the deadliest years on record. More than 540 people were killed in those six tragedies. In four days in April, there were 343 tornadoes in the largest outbreak on record, including 199 in one day, which is another record.

Texas had more than a million acres burned by wildfire, a record for the state, and Oklahoma set a record for the hottest month ever in the United States. The Ohio River Valley had triple the normal rainfall, which caused major flooding along the Mississippi River.

“Too little water in the South, too much water in the North,” said Andrew Weaver, a climate scientist at the University of Victoria in Canada. “It’s a story we are hearing more and more often.”

That’s why the world has to do two things, said Princeton University geological sciences professor Michael Oppenheimer: try to slow global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and prepare better for extreme weather.

Strong winds whip through New Mexico leaving power outages

December 2, 2011ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Strong winds sweeping across New Mexico have resulted in scattered power outages, difficult driving conditions and roof damage that ended classes early at one Valencia County school. The National Weather Service says damaging winds were expected to continue into Thursday evening. Forecasts are calling for gusts of 65 to 75 mph along the Central Mountain chain and to the west. Students at Valencia High School were sent home early after winds damaged the school’s roof. By late afternoon, Albuquerque police had reports of power outages and down trees around the city but no injuries. State highway officials say strong winds forced a tractor trailer onto its side in northern New Mexico. The winds are expected to die down Friday, but forecasters say parts of western and central New Mexico could see significant snow overnight. –The Republic 
Rare event: The storms, described as a once-in-a-decade event, were the result of a dramatic difference in pressure between a strong, high-pressure system and a cold, low-pressure system, meteorologists said. This funnels strong winds down mountain canyons and slopes. The system brought high wind warnings and advisories for California, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Arizona and New Mexico. The blustery weather is expected to eventually hit Oklahoma, Missouri and Indiana. –SV Herald

Climate chaos: Super storms to pound regions of northern Europe

December 2, 2011PARIS – Climatology, there are several indices or indicators that quantify the climate anomalies of pressure, wind and temperatures in some regions (for the atmosphere but also to the ocean). These anomalies are associated with natural oscillations whose frequency can vary from several months to several decades, and sometimes almost a century. These are the natural variability (including solar activity is also included) who are responsible for “change” climate as it is wrongly described in most media. The climate has indeed never been stable in the past. It went through phases of warming (as the Medieval Warm Period between the tenth and the fourteenth century) and then by cooling phases (such as the Little Ice Age from the late sixteenth century and the nineteenth century). Since the beginning of this fall, the temperatures of the atmosphere in the stratosphere (20 to 50 km altitude) began to fall over the North Pole. This decrease is quite usual in this season as well as the polar vortex weakening in summer, then re-forms in winter as the sun’s influence is diminishing. However, the current temperatures have gone below the average climate, indicating a strong enhancement of the vortex. It is customary to quantify the intensity of the strengthening of the polar vortex by a climatic index called Arctic Oscillation (AO), which measures the pressure difference between Greenland and the middle latitudes (about 45 ° North). The higher the value of AO is high (positive values ​​so) over the vortex is strong and vice versa. Yet the intensity of the polar vortex partly determines the position of the jet stream. There is a persistent anomaly in the equatorial stratosphere winds since last winter. This anomaly is associated with the quasi-biennial oscillation mentioned above which, as its name suggests, at a frequency of about 24 to 30 months. During this period, winds in the middle stratosphere are now accelerating towards the west (called a westerly QBO phase), and sometimes accelerating to the east (from east QBO phase).
We thus understand better why the circumstances of the next few days will promote the development of frequent depressions. This is even more rapid and intense that the jet stream is powerful: in extreme cases, it is called “weather bomb” to describe these storms suddenly exploding a few hours before landfall, generating widespread destruction of property and life. This was the case of Lothar and Martin storms that occurred in December 1999. In this context, a strong storm, named “Berit” has already swept the weekend Norway, causing millions of euros in damage. The winds had blown close to 140-150 km / h, lifting heavy seas with waves of 6 to 10 meters away several people who were near the coast. Finally, the cumulative rainfall amounted to almost 100 mm in places. A second storm occurred last night between Iceland and the British Isles. Dubbed “Zafer” by the German weather service, it concerned Ireland and the UK before  weakening towards the Norwegian Sea. It generated sales of close to 140-150 km / h on the hills of Highlands (northwest Scotland) and more generally from 70 to 100 km / h on the rest of the UK and Ireland. The sea is removed with the palm of 5 to 8 m making conditions even more dangerous near the coast. A very disturbed rail will fall into place between the south of Iceland and Central Europe. Along the rail (formed by the jet stream), a new depression will emerge, deepening into a very short period of time and resulting in real weather bomblets. These storms, more violent than Zafer, Saturday and Sunday will affect the regions of northern Europe from the British Isles, the Benelux, Germany, Poland and a number of other neighboring countries- it is difficult to list at the moment due to the still large uncertainty about the path of these storms. Similarly, the exact violence of these phenomena needs to be clarified in the coming days. Other very shallow depressions are expected next week but should cover regions with latitudes north. The situation in northern Europe looks very hectic in the coming days with frequent notice of gale and storm, with sea conditions very degraded (Wed strong to very strong) in the North Atlantic, North Sea and Norwegian Sea. Rainfall will be locally supported. Cold air tumbling to the back of these disturbances will cause some heavy snowfall from northern Ireland, Scotland, Scandinavia and Russia, also with snow in the mountains both in France or Central Europe. In short, a time more season. This could then remain a part of next week due to the blockage caused by the maintenance of high pressure over the North Atlantic and the persistence of a strong polar vortex over the Arctic.  –Meteo  translated

NibiruMagick2012’s Climate Change Update: Katla’s 500+ quakes in November (03 December 2011)

From: NibiruMagick2012  | Dec 2, 2011

December 2, 2011 — ICELAND — A huge Icelandic volcano long overdue an eruption is showing signs of activity — threatening disruption to air traffic, experts have said. There have been more than 500 tremors at Katla in the south of the country in just the last month. An increase in activity at the site since July has also been causing volcanologists concern, when increasing temperatures and seismic activity caused a flood, washing away a road bridge.

The highest atmospheric pressure ever recorded at Sea-Tac Airport was recorded Wednesday night, KIRO 7 Chief Meteorologist Rebecca Stevenson reports. At midnight, the barometer hit 1043.4 millibars, breaking the previous record of 1043.0 millibars, set on January 28, 1949.…

Winds have been peaking at 60 to 80 miles per hour, but sustained winds have been holding strong at 20 to 30 miles an hour.

The San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and the Inland Empire were hit the hardest overnight, but trees, utility poles and power lines were knocked down across the Southland.

The winds will stay strong through the morning hours before pulling back a bit Thursday afternoon. Another round will kick in late Thursday night through Friday afternoon.

Red flag and wind warnings will remain in effect, and drivers of high-profile vehicles were urged to be especially cautious.

Drivers of semi-trucks and high-profile vehicles were urged to drive cautiously due to the dangerous conditions.


According to the Los Angeles County Office of Education, the
following school districts will be closed Friday due to the wind:

  • Alhambra Unified School District
  • Arcadia Unified School District
  • Azusa Unified School District
  • Baldwin Park Unified School District
  • Duarte Unified School District
  • Monrovia Unified School District

Pasadena Unified School District, which also has canceled all after
school program, events and sports-related activities at its campuses.

  • San Gabriel Unified School District
  • South Pasadena Unified School District
  • Temple City Unified School District

The La Canada Unified School District is expected to make a decision on its status at about 6:30 a.m. the San Marino Unified School District expects schools to be open Friday. A decision has not yet been made by the Glendora Unified School District.  Video follow url link.
