Ice Age Farmer Report: Are they really suggesting we..? What will you eat in Grand Solar Minimum


Hot foot food
Obligated by synchronicities, Christian delves into the dark agenda behind consumers' shifting perception of 'food' and social engineering involved. As winter slams the Southern Hemisphere, there are echoes of the "freak, unprecedented" failing infrastructure, crops, and loss of life. Crop losses continue globally, and an Italian Meteorologist warns that we may be entering a Mini Ice Age. All of this is, in fact, part of a larger plan - using food scarcity to bring about total control. You can be a part of their plan, or you can make your own plan -- start growing your own food today.



Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Driest place on Earth now has lakes - Dust storm on Mars envelopes the entire planet

The latest Cyclone Mekunu has turned parts of of the arid Rub’ al-Khali desert, also known as the Empty Quarter, into water lakes, in a rare phenomenon that has not happened in nearly 20 years.
Lakes are now forming in the Rub-al- Khali the largest sand desert on Earth and among the driest places as well. This refilling of long past dried lakes basins and dunes will provide enough food for camel and goat herders for two years with fresh fodder. On Mars the largest dust storm ever recorded is covering the entire planet, its now a 20 day dust storm that is intensifying in our Electric Universe. Strange timing as all of the planets in our solar system will be on one side of the Sun in July and the first week of August 2018.

The Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INETER) registered the explosion at 7.08pm local time (2pm BST) on Thursday.

The eruption sent a plume of smoke 500 metres into the air, as well as shooting rocks and volcanic gasses.

INETER has reported pyroclastic material in the smoke column, but no pyroclastic flows have occurred.

Hordes of mosquitoes are laying siege to Russia's Voronezh region with many people too scared to go outside amid reports of domestic animal deaths. Authorities are struggling to stop the bloodsucking insects as numbers grow.

Hot weather and record-breaking floods have created ideal conditions for mosquitoes, helping to multiply their population to overwhelming numbers. The insect invasion has affected at least six areas in the Voronezh region.

People are suffering from itchy bites and swelling and say that it's "impossible" to leave their homes. Children are refusing to go to school as they are immediately "eaten alive" by the insects. Even at home people find scant refuge, as the tiny menaces manage to crawl through any crack they can find. Outside is far worse, as roads cannot even be seen through mosquito hordes, according to local media.

Comment: While some creatures numbers appear to be collapsing, other, less loveable creatures seem to be seeing a resurgence:


Butterfly numbers in the UK's woods have dropped by nearly 60% since 1990 in the latest sign of an 'ecological Armageddon'

Butterfly numbers in the UK are in decline

Butterfly numbers in the UK are in decline, and yet again it seems agriculture is to blame. Since 1990, butterfly numbers have declined by 27 per cent in farmland and by 58 per cent in woods, the government report found. The Common Blue (pictured) is one in decline
Butterfly numbers in the UK are in decline due to poor land management, a new report has warned.

Since 1990, butterfly numbers have dropped by 27 per cent in farmland and by 58 per cent in woods, the government study found.

In response to the report, charities have claimed that reform is needed to the country's farming laws in order to protect the environment in the wake of Brexit.

They say the latest figures offer more evidence to support expert predictions of an 'ecological Armageddon'.

A 28-year-old Maryland woman has died after police said her fiance's dog attacked her Thursday morning.

Jenna Rae Sutphin of Huntingtown, Maryland, was pronounced dead around 5 p.m., Maryland State Police confirmed.

A driver traveling along Maryland Route 4 in Calvert County called 911 around 7 a.m. after seeing an animal attacking something, but couldn't give more details, said Elena Russo of the Maryland State Police.

When the trooper arrived at the overgrown area near the highway, which is adjacent to Sutphin's home, the dog was actively attacking her, police said.

Sources who responded to the scene said that Sutphin was bitten in the back of the head and neck. She was sent to a local hospital and then life-flighted to Medstar Washington Hospital Center. She died Thursday night.

A minke whale is measured near Tiverton, N.S., in February.
The Marine Animal Response Society is seeking help to track down three dead minke whales floating off the coast of northern New Brunswick.

Tonya Wimmer, a marine biologist at Dalhousie University and the director of Marine Animal Response Society, said photos in recent weeks show three dead in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

She said the reports of the dead whales between the Gaspé Peninsula and northern tip of New Brunswick started in early June.

The charitable organization dedicated to marine animal conservation hopes people will report sightings of the dead whales so they can be tracked and brought to shore. That could help determine how they died.

Several Massachusetts residents spotted "fire rainbows" in the sky Wednesday.

The optical phenomenon known as a circumhorizontal arc occurs due to the refraction of sunlight in ice crystals, according to the National Weather Service.

7News viewers spotted the beautiful spectacle in Tyngsborough, Lynn and Reading.


Hiker killed by brown bear on the outskirts of Anchorage, Alaska

Bear attack
A hiker who had been missing for two days was found dead on Wednesday, the victim of a bear attack on the outskirts of Alaska's biggest city, Anchorage police said.

The body of Michael Soltis, 44, was discovered after a brown bear mauled one of the volunteers searching for the missing man, said MJ Thim of the Anchorage Police Department.

The cause of Soltis' death has not been confirmed and is still being investigated, but it appears that he was killed by the same bear that attacked the volunteer, Thim said.

"What we believe is the brown bear was protecting its prey, its find, which turned out to be the body of the missing person," he said.


New explosive eruption at Shinmoedake volcano, Japan

Explosive eruptions continue at Shinmoedake volcano, Japan
A new explosive eruption took place at Japan's Shinmoedake volcano, a part of Kirishimayama volcanic complex, at 00:09 UTC (09:09 JST) on June 22, 2018. This was its first explosive eruption since May 14.

The eruption ejected a column of ash up to 4.6 km (14 000 feet) above sea level, according to the Tokyo VAAC. Volcanic material was thrown as far as 1.1 km (0.7 miles) from the crater.

This was the first explosive eruption of this volcano since 05:44 UTC on May 14. That eruption sent ash up to 7.6 km (25 000 feet) above sea level, making it nearly 1 km higher than April 4th eruption and the highest since the current eruptive phase of this volcano began on March 1, 2018.

Comment: This comes days after an M6.1 earthquake in Osaka. Japan, which killed 3 people, and a few months following Shinmoedake's first recorded pyroclastic flow.
