  • Ocean system that moves heat gets closer to collapse, which could cause weather chaos, study says

    An abrupt shutdown of Atlantic Ocean currents that could put large parts of Europe in a deep freeze is looking a bit more likely and closer than before as a new complex computer simulation finds a "cliff-like" tipping point looming in the future. A long-worried nightmare scenario, triggered by Greenland's ice sheet melting from global warming, still is at least decades away if not longer, but maybe not the centuries that it once seemed, a new study in Friday's Science Advances finds. The study, the first to use complex simulations and include multiple factors, uses a key measurement to track...

    As the clock ticks closer to 2024, one outspoken economist is making a dire predication about the markets in the new year. "Since 2009, this has been 100% artificial, unprecedented money printing and deficits; $27 trillion over 15 years, to be exact. This is off the charts, 100% artificial, which means we're in a dangerous state," Harry Dent told Fox News Digital. "I think 2024 is going to be the biggest single crash year we'll see in our lifetimes."

    In November of 2020, a freak wave came out of the blue, lifting a lonesome buoy off the coast of British Columbia 17.6 meters high (58 feet)...Unfortunately, a 2020 study predicted wave heights in the North Pacific are going to increase with climate change, which suggests the Ucluelet wave may not hold its record for as long as our current predictions suggest.
  • Amount of warming triggering carbon dioxide in air hits new peak, growing at near-record fast rate

    The Associated Press ^ | June 5, 2023 | By SETH BORENSTEIN (D-AP)
    The cause of global warming is showing no signs of slowing as heat-trapping carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere increased to record highs in its annual Spring peak, jumping at one of the fastest rates on record, officials announced Monday. Carbon dioxide levels in the air are now the highest they’ve been in more than 4 million years because of the burning of oil coal and gas. The last time the air had similar amounts was during a less hospitable hothouse Earth before human civilization took root, scientists said. “To me as an atmospheric scientist, that trend is very concerning,” said...
  • Scientists find "unprecedented" rates of sea level rise along some U.S. coasts that's 3 times higher than global average

    Sea level rise has long been expected to be an ongoing and worsening problem for U.S. coasts, but scientists have found that some areas are experiencing "unprecedented" levels of rising seas, raising concerns about the fate of already vulnerable communities. A new study published in Nature Communications on Monday found that since 2010, sea level rise along the nation's Southeast and Gulf coasts has ramped up dramatically, hitting rates that are "unprecedented in at least 120 years." Since 2010, scientists from Tulane University have found that sea levels in those regions have increased by about half an inch every year....
  • AILING TYRANTS: Moment Putin’s sickly ‘attack dog’ warlord Kadyrov SHAKES uncontrollably as he meets ‘cancer stricken’ Vlad

    THIS is the moment Vladimir Putin's warlord Ramzan Kadyrov shook uncontrollably as he met with the tyrant. The Chechen brute, 46, feared he had been poisoned just weeks ago after it is reported he became seriously ill with kidney problems. Footage shows Kadyrov shaking as he talks to a puffy-looking Putin - who, rumoured to be battling his own health issues, gripped the table as they spoke. Bloated Kadyrov can be seen unable to control his quivering as he chats to the Russian dictator while reading from pre-prepared handwritten notes with huge writing. A translation by BBC journalist Francis Scarr...

    Of course, China knows that the Biden Administration wants war. They are increasing their age limits for military service to up to 60 years old. Don’t get upset and think you will be too old for the United States and Europe. You can never be too old to die for your local politician. We will see the draft age rise dramatically in the West all because our fearless world leaders, who will never go to war themselves, all need World War III desperately. Just as we can no longer define what a woman actually is, we can no longer discriminate...
  • Sunspot Turning Towards Earth Is so Big It's Changing How the Sun Vibrates

    On Tuesday morning, solar activity news website reported: "There are two sunspots on the farside of the sun so large they are affecting the way the sun vibrates." The study of the sun's vibrations is known as helioseismology, and it's a key area of solar science. Helioseismology involves studying sound waves from inside the sun, which can give clues as to what's happening on parts of the sun we can't see. It's similar to regular seismology here on Earth, in which scientists can work out what's going on inside our planet by studying sound waves that travel through our...

He warns that the global warming limit of 1.5 Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) agreed to in the 2015 Pris climate accord was slipping further out of reach even as more people are being hit by extreme floods, droughts, storms and wildfires...

    hy are so many unusual outbreaks of disease suddenly happening all over the planet? We were already dealing with a seemingly endless global pandemic coming into 2022, and so far this year a bird flu pandemic has resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of our chickens and turkeys, the worst monkeypox outbreak in history has spread like wildfire in the western world, and now it is being reported that there is an outbreak of the Marburg Virus in Africa. We have already lost our opportunity to contain monkeypox, and that is really bad news. But if authorities are...

    The U.N. Counter Terrorism Executive Directorate (CTED) is now responsible for taking entire privately hosted websites offline, as they seek to take total control of the flow of information and establish their "Great Narrative." CTED notifies domain registrars of "extremist" sites -- i.e., those that promote narratives they don't approve of -- and the sites can no longer be found. This reflects a new level of internet censorship, but it is not just publishers who are in the is all of us. Christian breaks it down in this Ice Age Farmer broadcast 12:00 minute video

    Thousands of scientists have repeated calls for urgent action to tackle the climate emergency, warning that several tipping points are now imminent. The researchers, part of a group of more than 14,000 scientists who have signed on to an initiative declaring a worldwide climate emergency, said in an article published in the journal BioScience on Wednesday that governments had consistently failed to address “the overexploitation of the Earth”, which they described as the root cause of the crisis. Since a similar assessment in 2019, they noted an “unprecedented surge” in climate-related disasters, including flooding in South America and Southeast Asia,...
  • MSNBC wails return of cruise industry will cause 'climate crisis' Links tourist ships as factor in massive floods, western wildfires

    On Wednesday, MSNBC freaked out over the global cruise ship industry attempting to return to business after being largely shut down during the pandemic. The reason for the left-wing cable channel’s fear? That boats full of tourists represented the latest “climate crisis,” akin to massive wildfires or deadly floods. “Also, climate crisis after climate crisis. Fires growing in California, smoke reaching the east coast, deadly floods in China, and now, a new fear in Florida,” fill-in anchor Chris Jansing ominously warned at the top of the 11:00 a.m. ET hour. She then specifically attacked the state’s Republican governor backing the...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that the debate over whether climate change is real needs to stop because it was “happening” and “incredibly dangerous.” Co-host Joy Behar said, “I’m going to throw my question out and ask you, what about climate change? What are we doing about this? This is, to me, the most urgent question of the decade, of the century maybe. Look at these people in the northwest of this country, 115 degrees in part of Canada. I mean, what is going on with that? Are you guys going to fix that or...
