SOTT Earth Changes Summary - August 2023: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

So-called historic wildfires in the U.S., Greece, and Canada filled corporate media headlines while blaming "global boiling." However, the annual number of wildfires for 2023 remains average. In Greece, the annual average did increase moderately, and arsonists were to blame. Social media was flooded with convincing points and speculations, blaming the globalist psychos' minions for starting the fires in order to spread fears of man-made climate change to push Net Zero policies throughout the Western world, and also, to take advantage of the aftermath to buy land at a fraction of their original price.

Accusations of land-grabbing grew even louder after the Lahaina fires when private companies "generously" offered to buy the affected land. But then, Governor Josh Green, said he would not allow the land to end up in private hands, but that the government could buy them. Is this good news for the people of Lahaina? Or will the land, once handed over to the government, end up in the hands of private companies anyway? That remains to be seen.

But whether it was natural, man-made, or both, the official death toll from the fires is 115. Considering the population of Lahaina, that's a huge death toll. In addition, Maui's major reported that 850 people were still reported missing, and suddenly the number went down to 60.

There are many things to blame for this tragedy:

- Government incompetence.
- Laughable budget for wildfire safety.
- Exceptionally flammable grass was introduced in 2020.
- Extreme winds.
- No warning sirens.
- State officials refused to release water.
- High voltage cables cut and laid over dry grass.
- Police blockades that kept people from fleeing the deadly fires.
- Utility trucks blocked roads as people tried to flee.

Later, the government erected a fence around the affected areas, and fire survivors were not allowed to return to what was left of their homes and businesses. For "their protection", they said. Or is there something else they want to hide?

In early August, the warm-mongers were still pushing the "world is boiling" nonsense, while the US had a cooler-than-average summer, and northern Italy, the Dolomites, and the Pyrenees were hit with summer snow!

Then they change the narrative a bit and blame global warming for the extreme flooding around the world, yet, as we have shared before, it's all part of natural cycles, pointing out a shift to colder global temperatures.

And again it has nothing to do with CO2:
Recent research suggests carbon dioxide molecules have little consequential impact on outgoing radiation, and that today's climate models assign fundamentally erroneous global temperature effects to CO2.
But that doesn't matter because the goal of the globalist psychos and their minions - the corporate media and paid "experts" - is to fuel the fires of fear and hysteria. However, it seems that fewer and fewer people are buying into their lies, as reality sometimes reveals itself quite dramatically.

Atmospheric river drops 10 FEET of new snow on Las Leñas ski resort in Argentina

Las Leñas ski resort is buried under tons of snow

Las Leñas ski resort is buried under tons of snow.
After getting over three feet in 24 hours, the latest storm total at Argentinian ski area Las Leñas has settled at approximately 10 feet of new snow. This is due to an atmospheric river this past week that has slammed the region of the Andes Mountains that Las Leñas is nestled in.

As a result, avalanche danger has reached an extreme level in and around Las Leñas. Two large inbounds avalanches were documented on Monday, occurring within a closed-off area of the resort.

The avalanches shown in the video above are large enough to bury, injure, and kill a person. Thankfully, the area they happened in was closed by ski patrol as a result of the ongoing storm and avalanche activity.

Comment: Earlier report: Extreme avalanche danger in Las Leñas, Argentina after resort sees over 3 feet of snow in 24 hours

Snow in Ceres mountains.
The South African Weather Service (SAWS) said that as the cold temperatures persist countrywide, snow could be seen over the high-lying ground of the eastern half of the Eastern Cape.

In an alert for yesterday, the service said frost could be expected over the northern interior of the Western Cape in the morning.

On Monday, SAWS issued a yellow level 1 warning for disruptive snow over the mountains and high ground of the Eastern Cape, the south-western parts of the Northern Cape, the north-western parts of the Western Cape, and the extreme south-western parts of KwaZulu-Natal.

Residents were advised of very cold, windy and wet weather, with possible light snowfalls over the mountains in the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, and the interior of the Western Cape.

Since the beginning of the week, areas across the Western Cape have been covered in a blanket of snow.

Residents initially used wheelie bins to block off the sinkhole, which emerged on Monday morning in Eltham.
A sinkhole the size of a car has opened up on a street in south-east London.

The hole which takes up almost an entire lane of the road and runs alongside the kerb next to a postbox, emerged on Monday morning on Dunvegan Road, Eltham. The area around the hole has been cordoned off after locals initially used wheelie bins to prevent an accident.

Andrew Hudson, who posted a photo of the hole on Facebook, told people to be vigilant and warned of slow post over the next few days. He said: "Next to Mayday Cars cab office be aware!

"I feel sorry for anyone that has posted important letters in the post box there because they are not being collected anytime soon," he added.

Magnitude-6.3 earthquake strikes northern Philippines

A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the area around the Babuyan Islands in the northern Philippines on Tuesday, the authorities said.

So far no damages have been reported or any tsunami warning issued.

The United States Geological Survey, which records seismic activity worldwide, reported that the earthquake occurred at 7:03 pm local time (11:03 GMT) and at a depth of 41 kilometers.

The inhabited areas closest to the tremor site were the towns of Namuac, about 73 kilometers north of the hypocenter, and Claveria (74 kilometers north).

The Philippines sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area of great seismic and volcanic activity where about 7,000 earthquakes are recorded each year, most of them moderate.


Pikes Peak in Colorado gets buried with a few inches of September snow

Many Colorado peaks have picked up the first measurable snow of the season from our September cold wave that pushed through over the weekend into Monday morning.

While most of the Front Range and eastern plains had a steady soaking rain overnight Sunday into Monday morning, many higher peaks of the state above 11,000 to 12,000 feet were treated to early September snow.

Pikes Peak woke up with measurable snow to start the week. While the peak can see snow during the Summer months at over 14,000 feet, most of those storms only provide a dusting. Workers had to do a little early season shoveling.
