7.5 quake on California fault could be disastrous
The News - Natural Disasters
March 31, 2014
california earthquake disaster

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded "Big One" from the more famous San Andreas Fault.

The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night's magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood - a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area.

A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of metropolitan Southern California, seismologists said.

 
Yellowstone National Park rattled by largest earthquake in 34 years

yellowstone volcano earthquake
Yellowstone National Park, which sits atop one of the world's largest super-volcanoes, was struck on Sunday by a magnitude 4.8 earthquake, the biggest recorded there since February 1980, but no damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The tremor, a relatively light event by seismic standards, struck the northwest corner of the park and capped a flurry of smaller quakes at Yellowstone since Thursday, geologists at the University of Utah Seismograph Stations said in a statement.

The latest earthquake struck at 6:34 a.m. near the Norris Geyser Basin and was felt about 23 miles away in two small Montana towns adjacent to year-around entrances to the park - Gardiner and West Yellowstone.

 
Is California overdue for a big earthquake?

california big one earthquake overdue

On March 17, a mild earthquake rattled countless Los Angeles-area residents awake shortly before their alarms went off at 6:30 a.m. The Monday morning temblor was the first notable L.A.-area quake in years.

A lengthy vacation from earthquakes certainly sounds nice. But John Dvorak, a geophysicist who now works at a astronomical observatory in Hawaii, warns that a quake break can just be the calm before the earthquake storm.

He makes his case that the Golden State is in for trouble in his readable and aptly named new book "Earthquake Storms: The Fascinating History and Volatile Future of the San Andreas Fault." But it's not just Californians who should pay attention to his exploration of earthquake science, the unfolding mysteries of geology, and the gaps in our seismic knowledge. As he notes in an interview, plenty of other parts of the country are vulnerable to earthquakes, including the Northwest, the Midwest, the South and – yes – even the Big Apple.

 
Society Is Doomed, Scientists Claim

society is doomed

There's never been a shortage of doomsday scenarios. From the dreaded Mayan Apocalypse of 2012 (remember that?) to the havoc wreaked in the movie "The Day After Tomorrow," people have been predicting the end of civilization for as long as there has been a civilization.

The trouble is, they're sometimes correct: The Roman Empire fell spectacularly, as did the Mayan civilization, the Han Dynasty of China, India's Gupta Empire and dozens of other once-mighty kingdoms.

But how, exactly, do powerful empires collapse, and why? Researchers now believe they've found an answer, one that has troubling implications for today — because we're clearly on the road to ruin.
 
Destructive solar blasts narrowly missed Earth in 2012
The News - Science-Astronomy
March 20, 2014

Fierce solar blasts that could have badly damaged electrical grids and disabled satellites in space narrowly missed Earth in 2012, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.

The bursts would have wreaked havoc on the Earth's magnetic field, matching the severity of the 1859 Carrington event, the largest solar magnetic storm ever reported on the planet. That blast knocked out the telegraph system across the United States, according to University of California, Berkeley research physicist Janet Luhmann.

"Had it hit Earth, it probably would have been like the big one in 1859, but the effect today, with our modern technologies, would have been tremendous," Luhmann said in a statement.

 
Video: Are We Facing A Super Volcano Eruption?
The News - Natural Disasters

super volcano
I have been been trying to come to grips with this because of the weird weather and most of all, the strange earthquake activity in places that don’t normally experience it. One of our dedicated supporters shared this video with us and we felt it was definitely worth sharing with everyone.

While this video is a compilation of others, they all carry the same theme; Yellowstone. We are not trying to create panic or play into some conspiracy theory, we want people to be alert and prepared. Is the USGS hiding something? Does the government know about it and they are making plans? We actually spoke with an employee at Yellowstone National Park via Twitter and they dismissed everything as “faulty” equipment. But only a few weeks later did the southeastern portion of the United States experience an earthquake. Coincidence?

You watch these videos and you decide for yourself. Hopefully it will still be on here before it is removed by the powers that be.

 
Earth's Greatest Extinction Hardly Changed Ocean Ways of Life

greatest extinction

Earth's largest mass extinction had surprisingly little effect on the range of lifestyles seen on the planet's seafloor, despite the loss of more than 90 percent of marine species, researchers find.

Understanding the impacts of this ancient extinction event may shed light on the damage climate change might now inflict on the planet, the scientists say.

The end-Permian mass extinction, which occurred 252 million years ago, was the biggest die-off in the planet's history, and the largest of the five mass extinctions seen in the fossil record. The cataclysm killed as much as 95 percent of all species on Earth.  [LS]

 
Warmup to Bring Flooding, Roof Collapse Risk Midwest, East
The News - Climate-Environment
February 18, 2014
warming weather roof collapse risk

In addition to the warmup bringing a break from winter this week, rain and rising temperatures will also bring the potential for flooding and roof collapses.

Temperatures will climb into the 40s over much of the Upper Midwest, New England and the upper part of the mid-Atlantic on multiple days during the balance of this week. Some locations in the Ohio Valley and the lower part of the mid-Atlantic will reach the 50s to near 60 degrees for a day or two.

However, due to the snow on the ground, mild air and rainfall expected, some problems are likely.

According to National Weather Service Hydro-Meteorologist Ted Rodgers, "We do not anticipate enough rain and natural melting for major flooding at this time, but sporadic minor flooding incidents are possible."

 
Asteroid to hurtle past the Earth at 27,000 mph

A ‘potentially hazardous’ asteroid which is three times the size of a football pitch and travelling at 27,000 miles an hour will pass close to Earth on Monday night.

Although the speeding chunk of rock – named 2000 EM26 – will be 1.6 million miles away it still represents a close shave for our planet in astronomical terms.

It will be tracked by the online Slooh Space Camera which monitors asteroids but scientists say it poses no threat to Earth.

Sunspot Larger than Jupiter, and Still Unleashing More Flares

sunspot AR 1944 threat to earth

As most Americans go about their daily lives without care or concern for what’s happening around them, 92 million miles away a catastrophic threat may well be in the making.

In January, the NOAA identified a sizable sun spot dubbed AR 1944. Within hours of warnings being issued about the potential for this particular region of the sun to cause earth-directed coronal mass ejections it sent an X-class solar flare our way. While powerful, that particular flare and the subsequent M-class flares were not strong enough to cause any significant disruptions on earth.

But as the spot rotated to the other side of the sun things got interesting… and ever more dangerous for the people of earth.

AR1944 has since been renamed to AR1967, and the region is now more active than it was in January. According to sky photographer John Chumack, AR1967 has grown considerably. It is now wider than Jupiter. That’s big. So big, in fact, that you can fit over 100 earth-sized planets into it. [FULL STORY]

Three Ways To End Life On Earth, According To 1962
The News - Weird-Strange
February 07, 2014
end the world 1962

This article, written by Martin Mann, originally appeared in the September 1962 issue of Popular Science magazine. "Man's Last Big Blast," published just a month before the Cuban missile crisis, describes in frightening detail the ways in which so-called Doomsday weapons could end human life on Earth.

Leaking past security are hints of a new and terrifying weapon: the Doomsday Bombs. These are Gargantuan bombs designed, in their ultimate form, to put an end to the world. They pose a completely new kind of danger to mankind, so grave that it is difficult to grasp. These are not just bigger and deadlier bombs. They are, as no weapon before has ever been, the ultimate weapon. They could put our entire planet at the mercy of a few men possessing a few pushbuttons.

 
After the Collapse: Six Likely Events That Will Follow an Economic Crash
The News - Disaster Preparedness
January 21, 2014

It’s not too difficult to understand that we are well on our way to a paradigm shift in America; in fact we’re in the midst of it right now. The writing is on the wall and can no longer be ignored.

The US government has run up trillions of dollars in debt, and given the recent debates over the country’s debt ceiling, we can rest assured that neither Congress or the President will act to curtail spending and balance the budget. We will continue adding trillions of dollars to the national debt clock until such time that our creditors no longer lend us money.

From the monetary side, the Federal Reserve’s response to this unprecedented crisis has been to simply “print” more money as is necessary. On top of the trillions in dollars already printed thus far, the Fed continues quantitative easing to the tune of about $80 billion per month. It’s the only arrow left in the Fed’s quiver, because failing to inject these billions into stock markets and banks will lead to an almost instant collapse of the U.S. financial system. Unfortunately, the current strategy is chock full of its own pitfalls, the least of which being the real possibility of a hyperinflationary environment developing over coming months and years.

Waiting For An “Economic Collapse” : Just Look At What Is Happening To Europe
The News - Economy
January 09, 2014
If you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the "economic collapse", just open up your eyes and look at what is happening in Europe.  The entire continent is a giant economic mess right now.  Unemployment and poverty levels are setting record highs, car sales are setting record lows, and there is an ocean of bad loans and red ink everywhere you look.  Over the past several years, most of the attention has been on the economic struggles of Greece, Spain and Portugal and without a doubt things continue to get even worse in those nations.  But in 2014 and 2015, Italy and France will start to take center stage.  France has the 5th largest economy on the planet, and Italy has the 9th largest economy on the planet, and at this point both of those economies are rapidly falling to pieces.  Expect both France and Italy to make major headlines throughout the rest of 2014.  I have always maintained that the next major wave of the economic collapse would begin in Europe, and that is exactly what is happening.  The following are just a few of the statistics that show that an "economic collapse" is happening in Europe right now...

Max Keiser: Economics Of Human Extinction

economics of human extinction
Max Keiser covers the UK's strategy of diminishing affordable property availability to drive the middle and lower class population essentially into extinction.  The U.S. is seeing a slightly different paradigm, in which real estate markets are being propped up artificially while wages and employment fall, giving international banks the opportunity to buy up bankrupt properties that normal people cannot find a private buyer for, and then reintroduce them into the market as rentals.  In the small island nation of the UK, they are being driven towards homelessness through lack of supply.  In America, we are being driven towards property consolidation through wage slavery and feudalism.  I'm not sure if one is necessarily worse than the other, but I will say that at least in America we have the means to fight back when the time is right.  The people of the UK, for all intents and purposes, gave up when they allowed themselves to be disarmed...
 
Sun Goes Wild: Earth Directed X-Class Flare Is On Its Way; Chance Of More

x class solar flare 2014

This morning The Daily Sheeple reported that the biggest sun spot in recent history had been identified on the sun and that it had moved into position facing earth. The spot is so large that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says it could swallow three earths.

The spot was mostly quiet for the last few days and wasn’t directly facing earth, though a smaller Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) glanced the planet in the early hours of January 7th.

Then at 12:32 Central Time it went wild: [SHTFPLAN]

'Polar vortex' snowstorm plunging America into record-breaking cold snap

polar vortex 2014

The coldest weather conditions for two decades show little sign of relenting in parts of America, as forecasters predict freezing temperatures could make today the coldest on record in the 21st century.

It sounds like a plot device from a bad disaster movie, but for vast swathes of North America, the weather phenomenon known as a “polar vortex” has become all too real, bringing misery to millions across the US and Canada, along with the lowest temperatures seen in almost twenty years.

More than 3,000 flights had been cancelled across the region by 10am yesterday morning. A further 3,700 had already been cancelled during the weekend. Schools were closed in major cities such as Chicago and St Louis, and residents advised to remain indoors.
