Global temperature for September 2012 tied with 2005 as the warmest on  record: NOAA

“The globally-averaged temperature for September 2012 tied with 2005 as the warmest September since record keeping began in 1880.” NOAA reported.

  • Combined average temperature over land and ocean surfaces for September was 60.21°F (15.67°C) or 1.21°F (0.67°C) above the 20th century average.
  • September 2012 was also the 36th consecutive September and 331st consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average.
  • 2012 January-September period was the warmest first nine months of any year on record for the contiguous United States, with the national temperature of 59.8°F, which  was 3.8°F above the 20th century average.
  • “The October 2011-September 2012 period was the warmest such 12-month period on record for the contiguous U.S., with an average temperature of 56.2°F, 3.2°F above average. This 12-month temperature average tied the June 2011-May 2012 period as the 3rd warmest of any 12-month period. The six warmest 12-month periods have all ended during 2012.” NOAA said.

‘No sign of survivors’ in Kashmir avalanche

Posted by feww on April 8, 2012

Disaster Calendar 2012 – April 8

Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,438 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

NO sign of 135 people buried under 24m of snow at Siachen Glacier entrance

More than a day after a massive avalanche buried 124 Pakistani soldiers and 11 civilians at the entrance to the Siachen Glacier, the military officials said they had found ‘no sign’ of survivors.

  • Kashmir, Pakistan.  A massive avalanche buried a Pakistan Army camp with at least 135 people inside in the mountainous Gayari range, near the Siachen Glacier in the northern Pakistani region of Baltistan, in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.
    • The area is called “the world’s highest battleground,” with the military HQ  in Gayari, one of the most inhospitable places on the planet, situated at at an elevation of about 4,570 meters (15,000 feet).
    • In February, about two dozen Indian soldiers were killed on in the mountains of Kashmir when two avalanches buried their army camps.

Significant Events

  • Alaska, USA.  Anchorage has recorded its snowiest year,  breaking a 57-year-old record for snowfall in a single season, NWS reported.
    • The old record of 132.6 inches set in Alaska’s largest city in 1954-1955 season,  was broken when 3.4 inches of snow fell from midnight to 4 p.m. local time on Saturday pushing the season total to 133.6 inches (339.34cm).
    • Anchorage has received above-normal snowfall this season.  In November, the city saw its greatest snowfall with a record 32.4 inches, about three-times the average for the month.
    • Records are kept at or near the Ted Stevens International Airport since 1953.
  • California, USA.  An outbreak of avian cholera has killed at least  10,000 birds at the the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, near Tulelake, Calif., dubbed the ‘Everglades of the West.’
    • Due to the scarcity of water caused by drought, “the refuge has been able to flood only half it’s marshes this year, creating prime conditions for the spread of avian cholera,” reports said.
    • The dead bird include coots, pintail ducks, Ross’ geese and snow geese.

The World is Still Here!

Posted by feww on May 21, 2011

It’s 00:29UTC (GMT/Zulu) on Saturday, 21 May 2011

The world is still here and FIRE-EARTH can confirm with a certainty of about 4,000,000,000 to 1 that it will still be here in 24 hours time.

[NOTE: UTC is Coordinated Universal Time, GMT is Greenwich Mean Time, Zulu is notation used by military/aviation.]

December 31, 2012

Neither FIRE-EARTH nor EDRO MODELS SHOW the WORLD ENDING in 2012, but that the FIRST PHASE of CIVIC COLLAPSE WILL HAVE STARTED.

Humans continue to devour energy at a rate of more than 17.3terrawatt, when the maximum ‘safe’ limit is less than 1.9terrawatt.

“About 99.98 percent of human effort goes to debilitate the ecosystems. In other words, for every single step taken to restore the natural life support services, humans take 6,400 steps in the opposite direction, destroying the planet’s ability to maintain life.” —EDRO

However, excessive human activity has  ensured the world collapsing around us

‘The First Wave of World’s Collapsing Cities’

Our world is collapsing around us, thanks to our lifestyles. In  “The First Wave of World’s Collapsing Cities,” EDRO forecasts that by as early as 2012, the world could experience an irreversible wave of collapse caused by a number of factors including “failing ecosystems, human-enhanced environmental catastrophes; failing infrastructure; food, water and fuel shortages; infectious disease; war, civil conflict …”

EDRO says, after the first phase of collapse is triggered, “massive waves of human migration from the affected areas” moving to less affected cities “create a domino effect that causes the collapse of the remaining population centers.”

A list of about 50 or so mechanisms that comprise the “Dynamics of Collapse” is available here.

  • World’s resources are dwindling (competition for the remaining finite resources is rapidly intensifying).
  • The exponential growth economy and its two leading pathogens, overproduction and overconsumption, together with unsustainable lifestyles and unethical behavior are degrading the world’s remaining resources.
  • Climate change is affecting the availability, or access to resources.
  • Global rates of consumption of water, food and energy are exponentially increasing.
  • The consumption rate has long surpassed the sustainability rate.
  • The world topsoil is falling below the critical level at which point production declines sharply.
  • Two-thirds of ecosystems are collapsing.
  • Deteriorating local resources and food insecurity, economic uncertainty and poverty, political corruption and instability, among other mechanisms of collapse, result in the collapse of cities and population centers.
  • Cities, population centers and settlements are abandoned.
  • Large-scale migrations ensue at regional, national and international levels.
  • Large numbers of migrants put additional terminal strain on the remaining resources.
  • Nations outstrip nature’s carrying capacity.
  • Civil conflict and war will break out.

FIRE-EARTH 2011 Disaster Calendar – MAY 

  • [May 20, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from planetary response to the harm caused by humans could occur by early 2016. SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,762 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History
    • France. The ongoing drought in France [and most of Europe] has been described as “a situation of crisis” by the French environment minister, a report said.
      • France is the European Union’s top grain grower. However, more than 85 percent of its wheat crop has suffered from the drought.
      • “EU new crop wheat futures have gained 34 percent since mid-March, and 22 percent alone over the past two weeks, hitting a new contract high on Thursday. “
    • Kansas, USA. More than 50 percent of the state Kansas is stricken by severe, or exceptional levels of  drought, up by 9  percent since last week, the Drought Monitor reported.
      • “Along with the U.S., France, and China all are experiencing some pretty nasty drought that is going to have a major global impact on commodities, wheat in particular,” said Mark Svoboda, climatologist with the University of Nebraska and the National Drought Mitigation Center.
      • “A dire drought that has plagued Texas and parts of Oklahoma expanded across the key farming state of Kansas over the last week, adding to struggles of wheat farmers already dealing with weather-ravaged fields,” said a report.
    • Europe. About 20 percent of the global wheat output comes from Europe. However,  the worst drought in nearly 4 decades is threatening  the UK, France and Germany. France, the world’s second- largest wheat exporter, may produce 12 percent less this year than in 2010, said Agritel, a Paris-based farm adviser.

Our planet is fighting back to stay alive. A dead planet cannot support life.
