Jet stream is shifting and it has nothing to do with HAARP

The Jet Stream is moving - and it's NOT HAARP. No, it's a much more powerful electrical source: The SUN.

The worshipers of the "HAARP can do anything and everything anywhere and everywhere" church of magic realism don't do much comparative research in their field. If they did, they'd find that the electrical nature of the universe, and solar system - and Sun - easily and readily (and better) explain what's going on with the weather...

Up to 40,000 New Yorkers may need to be relocated - freezing temperatures and more rain and wind from a 'nor'easter' storm

Up to 40,000 New Yorkers may need to be relocated as the city prepares for freezing temperatures and more rain and wind from a 'nor'easter' storm. It is expected to hit New York and New Jersey with gusts of up to 55mph by Wednesday. The strongest winds are forecast for Long Island, with 40mph more likely for New York City. There is also the chance of more beach erosion, coastal flooding and trees weakened by Superstorm Sandy being felled.

Up to four inches of rain is expected along with snowfall in more inland mountainous areas and a tidal storm surge of up to 5ft is possible, forecasters say. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said tens of thousands of people were in need of shelter, including 20,000 in public housing. Almost 2million people still have no power as cold weather sets in - a week after Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, killing at least 113 in the US.

Hundreds of thousands of commuters today faced tricky journeys into the city as public transport remained patchy. Rail service was reduced and the subway was at 80 per cent of its normal service. Most schools were due to reopen today, but some lacked power and others were being used as shelters.

Small earthquake rattles storm-stricken New Jersey

A small earthquake hit northern New Jersey early Monday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The magnitude 2.0 temblor struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, N.J., a community that's still reeling from downed trees and power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy.

Geophysicist Jessica Turner at the National Earthquake Information Center said some people reported hearing a loud boom in their homes, according to The Associated Press. Turner said those on upper floors of a home may have felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate.

The quake was 3 miles below ground and could also be felt in Wanaque, Oakland, Franklin Lakes, West Milford and Peterson. Ringwood police said there are no reports of damage in the area, the Associated Press reported.

The last recorded earthquake in New Jersey struck in February 2010 and measured 2.2 magnitude, Turner said.

    Rolling hills: The Met Office reported 'heavy snow' in places as up to an inch of snow settled by morning on higher ground in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Devon.
    Your calendar may say November... but the weather seems to think otherwise.

    Blizzards swirled across the North East and snow blanketed parts of the West Country yesterday.

    A light scattering of snow was reported in Gloucestershire, an inch fell in Dorset, and up to six inches fell in Somerset in Bath, Frome, Midsomer Norton and the Mendip Hills, after temperatures plummeted on Saturday night.

    Winter's arrived: The snowfall was England's fifth in nine days amid an early winter - after snow in the East last Saturday, in the West on Thursday and the North on Friday and Saturday.

    Stunning: Snow coats the countryside near Bath, Somerset, as heavy snowfall hit the region this morning.
    Several inches of snow fell on parts of the West Country despite none being forecast in the region.
    Up to six inches of snow was reported in areas including Bath, Frome, Midsomer Norton and the Medips.

    Bath and North East Somerset (Banes) Council said it had been caught unaware because no snow was forecast.

    Buses and trains were suspended, while Wiltshire police confirmed that several vehicles had become stuck in snow near Bradford-on-Avon.


    Man-eating leopard blamed for 15 deaths

    A leopard suspected of killing and eating 15 people in Nepal may have killed others across the border in India, a police official says.

    The remains of the most recent victim, a 4-year-old boy, was found Saturday in a forest just over half a mile from his home, CNN reported. Police say the leopard probably seized the boy and dragged him away to eat.

    Kamal Prasad Kharel, chief of police in the Baitadi district, said searchers had been combing the area, looking for the missing child. All that was found was the head.

    Ants essentially 'gone' near some wetlands

    Entomology associate professor Linda Hooper-Bui researches the effects of Hurricane Isaac on ant populations in Louisiana.

    By book-ending hurricane and tropical storm landfalls with research trips to the Louisiana coast, entomology associate professor Linda Hooper-Bui and her research team have made groundbreaking discoveries in the world of ants.

    Because the status of ant populations can serve as an environmental health indicator for the area as a whole, Bui has been able to see just how devastating both natural disasters and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been to Louisiana's ecosystem.

    Before and after Hurricane Isaac, Bui and her team traveled to the wetlands of Breton Sound, just south of St. Bernard Parish and east of what's left of the Mississippi River that far south.

    What they found meant two things: Isaac was more devastating than most people originally thought, and it could take several months before the ecosystem can fully recover from the destruction wrought by the slow-moving system and its massive storm surge.

    The ants are missing, Bui said, which doesn't bode well for other wetland inhabitants.


    Strange Sky Phenomenon Recorded Across Eastern U.S. Before Hurricane Sandy - Oct. 2012

    This phenomenon is called "Parhelia" -- for more on that go here.

    These were all recorded a few days or less prior to Hurricane Sandy making landfall.

    NASA solar physicist David Hathaway captured the above photo in Huntsville, Alabama two days ago after seeing the strange rings surrounding the afternoon sun.

    NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office head Bill Cooke says that he had, "never seen anything quite like it." Another onlooker, Kyle Winkleman, called it a "once-in-a-decade event."

    The Seismic Effect: Mysterious dolphin deaths in Peru

    "It probably would be the first time that seismic testing had ever been implicated in this kind of mass mortality of dolphins," say Hardy Jones, a wildlife documentary maker for the last thirty years.

    Thousands of dolphins wash up on the northern coast of Peru. Are they victims of seismic testing?

    The debate over high-decibel seismic testing is not just local.

    Scientists in South America are researching whether it's the cause of mass marine life deaths.

    In February of this year, thousands of dolphins began dying and washing up on Peruvian beaches.

    During that same time period, BPZ energy was doing a seismic survey in the same area where the dolphins had turned up.

    The mystery surrounding their deaths continues to be a subject of discussion among many in the scientific community.

    It's a tragic sight.
