Civilian World Not Ready For EMP Attack
The News - War-Draft
April 22, 2014
EMP attack power grid
The catastrophic effects of an electromagnetic pulse-caused blackout could be preventable, but experts warn the civilian world is still not ready.

Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both congressional advisory boards, said the technology to avoid disaster from electromagnetic pulses exists, and upgrading the nation’s electrical grid is financially viable. -- “The problem is not the technology,” Pry said. “We know how to protect against it. It’s not the money, it doesn’t cost that much. The problem is the politics. It always seems to be the politics that gets in the way.”
 
'City-Killer' space rocks : Sentinel satellite to launch in 2018
The News - Science-Astronomy
April 22, 2014
  • New research has revealed asteroids hit Earth more often than first thought
  • Announcement was made by former astronauts at the B612 Foundation
  • From 2000 to 2013 former astronauts studied explosion data on Earth
  • They found 26 instances were likely caused by asteroids exploding high up in the atmosphere
  • This makes impacts up to ten times more common than original estimates
  • However, the majority of the impacts occurred in unpopulated areas including the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
  • Researchers have proposed a satellite to detect asteroids before they hit
  • The Sentinel satellite would launch in 2018 and would find 500,000 by 2024

Asteroids cause dozens of nuclear-scale blasts in Earth's atmosphere

asteroid threat nuclear explosion
Asteroids caused 26 nuclear-scale explosions in the Earth's atmosphere between 2000 and 2013, a new report reveals. Some were more powerful – in one case, dozens of times stronger – than the atom bomb blast that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945 with an energy yield equivalent to 16 kilotons of TNT.

Most occurred too high in the atmosphere to cause any serious damage on the ground. But the evidence was a sobering reminder of how vulnerable the Earth was to the threat from space, scientists said. The impacts were recorded by the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation, which operates a global network of sensors set up to detect nuclear weapon detonations. None of the asteroids were picked up or tracked in advance by any space- or Earth-based observatory.
 
Magnitude-7.2 earthquake shakes Mexican capital
The News - Natural Disasters
April 18, 2014

A powerful magnitude-7.2 earthquake shook central and southern Mexico on Friday, sending panicked people into the streets. Some walls cracked and fell, but there were no reports of major damage or casualties.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake at about 9:30 a.m. (10:30 a.m. EDT; 1430 GMT) was centered on a long-dormant fault line northwest of the Pacific resort of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for the Easter holiday.

It was felt across at least a half-dozen states and Mexico's capital, where it collapsed several walls and left larges cracks in some facades. Debris covered sidewalks around the city.

 
APOCALYPSE NOW: Rare astrological event TONIGHT could herald the 'End of Days'

The alignment marks the start of the 'Tetrad' - four successive 'blood-red' eclipses[AFP/GETTY ]

Mars, Earth, and the Sun will all align tonight, a rare 'opposition of the planets' that only happens once every 778 days. 

But what makes this so remarkable is that it comes precisely a week before everyone on earth will see the first of FOUR dark red 'blood moons', an extraordinary event some Christians believe represents the End of Days and the second coming of Christ.

The King James Bible predicts: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes," [Joel 2:31]. 

And, according to NASA, a highly unusual 'Tetrad' - four successive total 'blood-red' lunar eclipses each followed by six full moons - will, indeed, start a week today and finish on September 28 next year. 

The incredible alignment has only happened a handful of times in the last two thousand years but, remarkably, on each of the last three occasions it has coincided with a globally significant religious event.

 
The Scientific Revolution: Bringing an Extinction Level Event Right To Your Door
The News - Science-Astronomy
April 07, 2014
I’m not quite old enough yet to spend my days considering how I, as an individual, will die. I have seen so many things in my former life in the hospital that it would be almost impossible to pick one as the most likely cause of my demise.

Increasingly I have considered that what finishes me off will most likely take a whole load of other people with me. A nuclear winter from Yellowstone popping off cutting the food supply, a pandemic like Ebola sweeping the globe, bad weather causing widespread famine or maybe a solar flare ending life as we know it. All of these things could, and possibly would be what I call an AELE…an Almost Extinction Level Event. I say almost because all of them would see some people surviving, and hopefully one of them would be me.

The last year or so though, my thoughts have drifted from an AELE, to a total ELE, an Extinction Level Event that actually kills off the entire human race.

 
Blood moon & apocalypse woes: Bible scripture cites world end?

blood moon apocalypse 2014

When the blood moon appears this month it may strike you as looking wounded. The blood moon will be drenched in a deep red hue, almost resembling the color of blood. This event has a significant link to the apocalypse that was deciphered from a bible scripture, according to some religious leaders.

While folks might have had their full of promises of the coming apocalypse, today two pastors have cited a scripture that calls for the presence of a blood moon during the apocalypse, according to The Inquisitr on April 2.

The blood moon on April 15 will be the first of four that the Earth will experience in the next two years. This extremely uncommon grouping of four blood red moon events is called a tetrad. Coinciding with Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles, these blood moon events are expected in April of 2014 and 2015, along with October of 2014 and 2015.

 
How Bad Would A Yellowstone Eruption Be?

April 03, 2014

Mount St. Helens was tiny compared to the most dangerous category of volcano – the super volcano. The Yellowstone super volcano is located in the Yellowstone National Park of Wyoming. Try to imagine a volcanic eruption 10,000 times stronger than Mount St. Helens – an eruption that would threaten our very survival.

8.2 MAG QUAKE STRIKES NORTHERN CHILE
The News - Natural Disasters
April 01, 2014

A powerful magnitude-8.0 earthquake struck in off Chile's northern coast Tuesday night, and authorities ordered an evacuation of coastal areas in case of a tsunami. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck 61 miles (99 kilometers) northwest of the city of Iquique at 8:46 p.m., shaking a region that has been rocked by numerous quakes over the past two weeks.

The latest tremor also shook buildings in parts of the nearby nations of Bolivia and Peru. Waves measuring almost 2 meters (6 1/2 feet) already were striking cities on the northern coast.

Chile earthquake tsunami disaster 2014

A tsunami warning has issued an expanded regional tsunami warning for Chile, Peru and Ecuador after a major magnitude 8.0 earthquake stuck off the coast of Chile.

A tsunami watch is also in effect for Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica.

The quake hit near the mining area of Iquique, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

It says the quake was very shallow, only 10 km below the seabed, which would have made it feel stronger. It was centred 86 km northwest of Iquique.

More to follow.

7.5 quake on California fault could be disastrous

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, 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?

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

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."
