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

The warm-mongers blame the residual activity of La Niña for the record cold and snow in April in some parts of the northern hemisphere. But as much as they would like to blame la Niña, there has been an ENSO-neutral state for some time now.

In addition, there is data suggesting a 60% chance of a transition to El Niño in May-July 2023, and that it could trigger a new spike in global temperatures. So, if things get warmer in some parts of the world and the media and "climate authorities" blame it on global warming, pay no attention to them. It's El Niño.

We would like to remind our readers that the global climate is primarily controlled by solar activity, not by human activity or man-made C02. The same applies, of course, to phenomena such as El Niño and La Niña:
It is not out of the question that there are physical links between energetic solar eruptions and El Niños. Whether these lines of reasoning turn out correct or spurious is of no import regarding the practical results of this investigation. They leave little doubt that solar activity and ENSO events are closely connected to such a degree that long-range forecasts beyond the 12-month lead time are now possible. The consequences of these results for the hypothesis of anthropogenic climate change are far-reaching. As stated in the beginning, ENSO events are the strongest source of variability in the global climate system and explain most of the global temperature anomalies. Our result that solar activity regulates these powerful climate phenomena shows clearly that the impact of the sun's variability has been underestimated in a way that reverses the proportions. Recent research published by H. Svensmark and N. Calder corroborate this statement. Actually, solar activity turns out to be the dominant factor in climate change. IPCC scientists can no longer uphold their contention that "solar variability over the next 50 years will not induce a prolonged forcing significant in comparison with the effect of increasing carbon dioxide concentrations."
It is worth noting that we had 2 X-class solar flares on April 19 and April 20.

Now, the total temperature, measured from the surface to the higher layers of the atmosphere, continues to decrease in accordance with the solar minimum. Always remember that we cannot trust the official data as it has been largely manipulated:
"From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century."
Doctored data, not real temperatures, set 'global warming' record: "In 2007, a blogger named Steve McIntyre asked NASA why they had taken raw temperature data and made past temperatures lower and recent temperatures higher. NASA was actually forced to admit they were lying and rename 1934 as the hottest year. They are doing this globally as well."
There was the study published in the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate showing that climate models exaggerate global warming from CO2 emissions by as much as 45%. It was ignored.
A study in the journal Nature Geoscience found that climate models were faulty, and that, as one of the authors put it, "We haven't seen that rapid acceleration in warming after 2000 that we see in the models."
Findings from the University of Alabama-Huntsville showed that the Earth's atmosphere appears to be less sensitive to changing CO2 levels than previously assumed.
And how about the fact that polar bears populations are increasing?

All this data manipulation makes sense, as they need to justify the push for nonsensical Net-Zero and green policies that would fuel fear profiteering and means of control like 15-minute cities and climate lockdowns. Or at least that's their agenda, but it's looking more and more like they're shooting themselves in the foot; just ask Germany, which has no efficient nuclear power plants and has to rely on coal plants and expensive imported electricity from France.

Without further ado, here are the record snow events for April in the US:
  • Snowbird Resort, and Solitude Mountain Resort, Utah: All-time record - 809 inches of snow.
  • Casper, Wyoming: 40-year snowfall record - 26 inches of snow.
  • Wisconsin: 22 inches of snow.
  • Central Colorado: 6 inches of snow after weeks of unusually low temperatures.
Around the world:
  • The Alps: 40 inches of snow in 5 days.
  • South-west China: All-time record for April with 9 inches of snow.
  • Balkans - 15.7 inches and record-breaking low temperatures for April.
  • Romania - Unseasonable snow and low temperatures with wind gusts of 75 to 85 km/h.
  • Reykjavík, Iceland: Rare "spring snowfall".
  • Taif, and Al Baha, Saudi Arabia - Unseasonable snow.

MindMatters: Knee-deep in the Weird: Science, the Paranormal, and Popular Belief

After some brief comments on classical worldviews, natural law, populism, the genesis of leftist and postmodern thought, and the history of ideas, we settle on today's topic of topics: the paranormal. What societal structures exist (in academia, the media, the marketplace, etc.) that make the paranormal both in demand as a subject worth learning about - and yet deeply suppressed as something to take seriously in "official culture". What does the Church and orthodox materialist science have to say about the acceptance of the so-called supernatural? And how do we come to know anything even remotely objective about such a topic when the rigor and open-mindedness required to study it is so lacking in officialdom? Join us for this fascinating discussion!

NewsReal: Regime Fires Tucker Carlson, Pentagon All Set For 'Total Victory' in Ukraine

The last prominent anti-war voice in US mainstream media has been taken 'off air'. For now anyway, Tucker Carlson has been silenced, another clear signal that freedom of speech in the US is no more. Meanwhile Bobby Kennedy Jr's popularity is growing as he seeks to do the impossible by becoming president and pulling the US out of terminal decline.

Also on this NewsReal, Joe & Niall prepare to swear allegiance to 'King Charles III', join St. Fauci in avoiding 'the blame game' over Covid, watch the Pentagon... er, Ukraine, make final preparations for 'the big push' against the Russians, pillory EU leaders for buying vast amounts of Russian oil at higher cost from third parties, and revisit revelations that the CIA swung the 2020 election for the Bidens, and thwarted FBI investigations into Saudi spies 'handling' some of the 9/11 'hijackers'.

Attention citizens! Putin is preparing to attack the UK! At least, that's what British media and govt officials are reporting, while testing their new 'emergency alerts' system on every mobile phone in the country. The government wouldn't do fake news and hype up non-existent threats, would it?

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss Anglo-American certainty that Ukraine is poised to retake Crimea and join NATO and the 'Eur-Atlantic Family' - whatever that is - the admission by an ex-CIA Director that 'the US intelligence community' interfered in the 2020 presidential election, the confirmation by Elon Musk that said community has been 'all over' the back-end of social media platforms reading people's private messages, the potential impact of Bobby Kennedy Jr's entry into the 2024 presidential race, Trump's warning that the US is in its worst crisis in 200 years, and more!

Tucker Carlson's Heritage Speech: 'Evil Forces Have Re-instituted Child Sacrifice'

Comment: Great short speech from Carlson, on the nature of good and evil, and evil's takeover of the body politic in these times. And no, this is not just another polarizing 'hot take' in the 'culture wars'. Carlson specifically shares that he's been surprised to discover in recent years that he can no longer predict who among us will do, or stand up for, 'the right thing' based on their outward identity within a particular social milieu, or their self-declared political views...

Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson
"What you're watching is not a political movement, It's evil."

The side of evil is characterized by violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth, Carlson said in remarks at the black-tie-optional affair at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center here. And praying to protect America against such things is something he too often forgets to do, he told a ballroom audience of about 2,000.

The battle is not about economics or policy papers, Carlson said, as it was in 1991 when he began his first job at The Heritage Foundation as a fact-checker on the same day communist hard-liners staged a coup in the Soviet Union. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)

"The side of good is characterized by calmness, tranquility, peace, lack of conflict, cleanliness," Carlson said. "And evil is characterized by their opposites."

Now, the Fox News host said, those on the side of goodness must assess and challenge phenomena such as the transgender and pro-abortion movements — and the old mindset won't work.

Comment: Watch the full speech here. It's just 17 minutes long. He follows it with two further insightful comments in the Q & A:

Update 24 April 2023

And... he's gone! Fox News, presumably under pressure from the 'intelligence community', has fired him.

It was great while it lasted, but the pathocracy couldn't stand him any longer. Thanks for the truth-telling Tucker!


Bombshell Filing: 9/11 Hijackers Were CIA Recruits

9/11 hijackers
At least two 9/11 hijackers had been recruited into a joint CIA-Saudi intelligence operation that was covered up at the highest level, according to an explosive new court filing.

A newly-released court filing raises grave questions about the relationship between Alec Station, a CIA unit set up to track Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and his associates, and two 9/11 hijackers leading up to the attacks, which was subject to a coverup at the highest levels of the FBI.

Obtained by SpyTalk, the filing is a 21-page declaration by Don Canestraro, a lead investigator for the Office of Military Commissions, the legal body overseeing the cases of 9/11 defendants. It summarizes classified government discovery disclosures, and private interviews he conducted with anonymous high-ranking CIA and FBI officials. Many agents who spoke to Canestraro headed up Operation Encore, the Bureau's aborted, long-running probe into Saudi government connections to the 9/11 attack.

Despite conducting multiple lengthy interviews with a range of witnesses, producing hundreds of pages of evidence, formally investigating several Saudi officials, and launching a grand jury to probe a Riyadh-run US-based support network for the hijackers, Encore was abruptly terminated in 2016. This was purportedly due to a byzantine intra-FBI bust-up over investigative methods.

When originally released in 2021 on the Office's public court docket, every part of the document was redacted except an "unclassified" marking. Given its explosive contents, it is not difficult to see why: as Canestraro's investigation concluded, at least two 9/11 hijackers had been recruited either knowingly or unknowingly into a joint CIA-Saudi intelligence operation which may have gone awry.

Comment: 22 years later, it amazes us that people can still be surprised to learn that 9/11 was an inside job, but everyone learns at their own pace!

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

Extreme weather continues to batter California. Heavy rains, flooding, hurricane-force winds, and tornadoes left hundreds of thousands without power and prompted evacuations from the hardest-hit areas. To top it off, the state reported the second snowiest late winter on record and the third snowiest month on record. The anomalously heavy snow buried Southern California mountain communities under 12.5 feet of snow and caused the indefinite closure of Yosemite National Park, which received 15 feet of snow and broke a decades-old snowfall record in the process.

Utah also recorded its snowiest late winter, breaking a record set in 1983. Snowbasin Resort in Weber County officially had its snowiest month on record.

And the same system that affected parts of the West Coast also hit southern states with snow, flooding, golf-ball-sized hail, and tornadoes, leaving more than 1 million without power and killing at least 13. And the northeastern U.S. also got its share of extreme weather, as a nor'easter brought 3 feet of snow, rain, gusty winds, and coastal flooding.

Tropical Cyclone Freddy made a rare second landfall in southern Africa, killing at least 216 people. Malawi and Mozambique were the hardest hit, with 190 deaths, 19,000 displaced, and thousands without power.

In Brazil, heavy rains and the overflowing Acre River flooded large areas of the city of Rio Branco, Acre. The Acre River in Rio Branco rose from about 26 feet to 51 in 24 hours. Hundreds of homes were damaged and at least 2,000 people were evacuated.

Other major floods worldwide this month:
  • Johor, Malaysia - 4 dead and 40,000 displaced after heavy flooding
  • Java, Sumatra, and Sulawesi, Indonesia - 4 dead, 7 missing after floods and landslides
  • Somalia - At least 14 dead in flash floods
  • Kenya - 7 dead and 25 families left homeless after flash floods
  • Şanlıurfa and Adıyaman, Turkey - Flash floods leave 14 dead
  • Bolivia - Thousands affected by severe flooding
  • Cauca, Colombia - 1,500 families affected by floods and landslides
  • Northern Australia - Hundreds evacuated after rivers overflow
An estimated 461 people were injured and 13 people died after a magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck southern Ecuador. Many buildings in Cuenca, one of the country's largest cities, reported structural damage.

Another magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck much of Pakistan and Afghanistan. At least 13 people were reported dead and twelve injured.

Finally, after the strongest solar storm in over five years, massive auroras were seen over Tasmania, Australia, and New Zealand, and Northern Lights were reported as far south as North Carolina and Phoenix, Arizona, almost to the Mexican border.

NewsReal: Trump Says 'US Dead' as Regime Indicts Him

© Sott.net
Turns out Trump wasn't wrong when he said, two weeks ago, "they're coming after me..." But the regime can't seriously believe that he will go to prison over a payment he made to a (literal) whore 7 years ago, can they?!

Also on this NewsReal, Joe & Niall look back on a week that included:

A mass shooting at a school in Nashville by a crazed 'transgender' woman; the filing of bi-partisan legislation (the 'Restrict Act') that would block Americans from accessing information from 'unapproved sources' (upon pain of 20 years' imprisonment); notable developments in the ongoing 'de-dollarization' of international trade; the US piling pressure on Pakistan to 'terminate' its democratically-elected leader Imran Khan; the US VP's 'charm offensive' tour of African states; what looks like another US State Department color revolution (in Israel of all places!); and a daunting report on the falling average age of life expectancy in the US.

It's ugly stuff, but that's what happens at the End of Empire...
