Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

“Whitemare” at London’s Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport remained closed for a third day as the overnight temperature in Buckinghamshire, England dipped to as low as -20ºC.

“Ice, snow and sub-zero temperatures in northern Europe have disrupted travel, leaving Europe’s busiest airport Heathrow, near London, all but closed,” said a report.

Thousands of stranded passengers are expected to spend a second night on terminal floors at London’s Heathrow, described as “like a Third World refugee camp.”

Air and rail services were severely disrupted in other parts of the UK, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, northern France and northern Italy.

Up to half a million passengers have been stranded/affected, as more heavy snow is forecast for England, Wales and Scotland.
