Fire Earth

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

Weather extremes the “new norm”

Mega Droughts and Deluges, Extreme Rain Events, Super Storms, Giant Snowfalls … Here to Stay: Climatologist

“It’s a new normal and I really do think that global weirding is the best way to describe what we’re seeing,” climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe of Texas Tech University said at a news conference.

“We are used to certain conditions and there’s a lot going on these days that is not what we’re used to, that is outside our current frame of reference,” Hayhoe added.

Three Things the Scientist Didn’t Know (Tell)

1. How long will this “new normal” stay before it gets even worse?

2. How much worse will it get?

3. How quickly will you have to pack your bags?

Those questions have already been answered:


Emerging Calamities You CAN’T Prepare for, or Insure against

Climate Change, Global Broiling, Volatility and Extremes of Weather, Mega Swings of Temperature, Megadeluges and Megadroughts, Giant Dust Storms, Megaquakes, Super Volcanic Eruptions, Extreme Wildfires, Food and Water Scarcity, Deadly Diseases, Megadeaths (Forests, Plants, Animal Species…)

Looming Megadisasters Could Impact 1/3 to 1/2 of  Human Population in 2011-2012

1,763 Days Left to the the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History
