SOTT Focus: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2024: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

As we reach an early peak in the current solar cycle, anomalous extreme weather and geological phenomena are intensifying alongside social and geopolitical unrest.

A rare quadruple solar flare exploded almost simultaneously on 23 April, followed by an X-class solar flare on 30 April, causing widespread radio blackouts across the Pacific region.

This activity could be responsible for some energetic events in the last part of April:
  • USA: Unusual tornado outbreak in at least 5 states.
  • Guangzhou, China: Unusually strong tornado kills 5, injures 33.
  • Saudi Arabia: Heavy rainfall and widespread flooding.
An unexpected drop in temperatures in some parts of the northern hemisphere led to unusually heavy snowfall in mid to late April. Unseasonably cold weather is expected to continue into May.

However, el Niño caused extreme heat, and dry conditions in parts of North, Central, and South America, affecting crops and leading to water rationing in some countries, such as Mexico and Colombia.

An earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale struck Taiwan's east coast on 3 April. More than 100 aftershocks, including one with a preliminary magnitude of 6.5, rattled the island. At least nine people were killed and more than 1,000 injured in the strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan in 25 years.

It is worth adding that Ventusky and other weather mapping systems picked up two large wave anomalies between Antarctica and southern Africa on the 10th and 25th of April. Ventusky tried to sweep the first one under the rug, but there was silence after the second. These events have led to much speculation, but the patterns and measurements most likely indicate massive outgassing.

SOTT Focus: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - March 2024: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

An X-class flare that split into two simultaneous explosions - known as a sympathetic solar flare, triggered a coronal mass ejection that slammed into Earth, causing the biggest disruption to our planet's magnetic field in more than six years. The last time the Earth experienced such a strong geomagnetic disturbance was in September 2017.

The resulting geomagnetic storm reached severe (G4) status, causing communications disruptions around the world and increasing the potential for major earthquakes.

It's worth noting that this peak in the solar cycle has come earlier than originally predicted, and as solar activity decreases, so do temperatures on Earth.

As we have mentioned many times before, the climate and Earth changes are strongly influenced by solar activity and the electrical interaction between our star and the Earth. And it's interesting to observe that even when the sun is at its peak, we see record snow and low temperatures around the world:

SOTT Focus: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - February 2024: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Lahaina, Hawaii; Valparaiso, Chile; and the Texas Panhandle were been hit by wildfires with suspicious origins, unusual patterns of spread, and extremely destructive effects. Theories and speculation took over social networks: from arson to Directed Energy Weapons. But to what end? Land grab, to instill fear in the population? Only time will tell.
"I have witnessed and observed some extraordinary damage in our state. Could be caused by hurricanes or tornadoes, and frequently when you see the aftermath of that damage, there's some symbol as of a structure that is still there.

When you look at the damages that have occurred here, it's just gone. Completely gone. Nothing left but ashes on the ground.

Some early, and I will categorize as premature assessments, show that there are about 400 to 500 structures that have been destroyed. There's no way to say for certainty that's gonna be the final number because there's still the ongoing assessment process." - Texas Governor, Greg Abbott.
We have seen signs of systematic sabotage by the globalist elites against farmland, farmers, and food production infrastructure in recent years, could this be part of it?

Meanwhile, unusually cold temperatures and snowfall for February hit a significant portion of the Northern Hemisphere:
  • Xinjiang, China: Harshest cold spell in over six decades - -63.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mongolia: 90% of the country is affected by harsh winter conditions.
  • Himachal Pradesh, India: 2 feet of snow in 24 hours - Almost 600 roads blocked.
  • Jammu and Kashmir, India: 3 feet of snow in 48 hours.
  • Gangwon, South Korea: Record snow cover - 2 feet.
  • The Alps - 2 feet of snow in 24 hours.
  • Utah, US: 30 inches of new snow in 3 days.
  • Flagstaff, Arizona, US: 2 feet of snow in 3 days.
Global WarmingTM is nowhere to be found yet...

SOTT Focus: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - January 2024: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

2024 started with a bang: A magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck western Japan, destroying and collapsing buildings, causing fires, and knocking out infrastructure on Japan's main island of Honshu just as families were celebrating New Year's Day. More than 33,400 people were in evacuation centers and at least 200 buildings collapsed. Some 30,000 households were without power and more than 110,000 were without running water. The death toll rose to over 200, with more than 100 still unaccounted for. Strong aftershocks buried more homes and blocked roads vital for aid deliveries.

Record freezing conditions caused widespread disruption around the world in January. In the US, all 50 states were hit by heavy snowfall at the same time this season; 55% of the continental US was covered in snow - an unprecedented event. This caused widespread travel disruption, thousands of canceled flights, power outages, and damaged infrastructure nationwide.

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

As Solar Cycle 25 is about to reach an unexpected peak, we observe an increase in electrical phenomena such as air-spirals, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.

A massive solar storm that nearly reached "X-class" status hit Earth on the first day of the month, causing some minor radio and internet disruptions worldwide. This was followed by one of the largest solar flares since 2017 on December 15, which temporarily knocked out radio communications on Earth, affecting even the higher frequencies.
"These impacts were felt from one end of the Nation to the other," said the NOAA.
The strong and persistent magnetic storms have also affected the ozone hole in the southern hemisphere, which remains unusually large for this time of year when it normally shrinks. It has remained at a size of about 15 km2 to become the third largest after November 30.

At the same time, record cold weather in the stratosphere produced polar clouds earlier and farther south than usual, with people from all over the Northern Hemisphere reporting or recording sightings. These are extraordinary excursions from the normal polar cloud habitat.

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

Record snowfall from northeastern China to the northeastern U.S., and unusually heavy rains and floods wreak havoc worldwide in November. Meanwhile, at the COP28 climate summit:
200 countries struck a breakthrough climate agreement, calling for a transition away from fossil fuels in an unprecedented deal that targets the greatest contributors to the planet's warming.
It's not news that the green agenda is a big scam to make its proponents richer, siphon off taxpayer money, and push policies that undermine people's freedom. But as we have said before, nature has other plans. This November has been no exception in terms of historic snowfall records:
  • Anchorage, Alaska: Snowiest November since records began in 1953.
  • Northeast China: Record snowstorm forced airlines to cancel flights, halted trains, and closed schools and roads.
  • Northeastern US: Unprecedented 40 inches of snow from upstate New York to parts of New England.
  • Mongolia: Heavy snow and blizzards cover 60 percent of the country.
  • Romania, Bulgaria, and Moldova: Heavy snow and strong blizzards leave thousands without power.
  • Mexico: Unusually heavy snow covers all northern states.
  • Ukraine: Heavy blizzard leaves 11 regions without power and kills 10.
The same system that dumped heavy snow in Romania, Bulgaria, and Moldova triggered the "storm of the century" that hit parts of Ukraine and southern Russia, killing at least four people and leaving nearly 2 million without power.

Comment: UPDATE 14 Nov 2023

YouTube appears to have "terminated" the entire SOTT Media channel - which archives 10 years' worth of monthly Earth Changes Summary videos - after some jealous 'extreme weather upstart channels' claimed copyright on several seconds' worth of footage used in several 2023 Earth Changes Summary videos. Fair Use by an all-volunteer staff working for a non-profit organization apparently means nothing to ruthless corporate mercenaries who are only in it for the clicks and notoriety. Unless or until our channel is restored on YouTube, SOTT Summary videos will be posted on our Odysee channel.

In loving memory of our dear friend and Earth Changes expert, Pierre Lescaudron.
As we approach the midpoint of Solar Cycle 25, which has had the lowest solar activity in about 200 years, we are experiencing cooler-than-average temperatures and unseasonable snow across the globe.

The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a harsh winter for the Northern Hemisphere, with above-normal snowfall in most snow-prone areas of the U.S., with storms, showers, and flurries continuing into early spring. America's first Arctic blast of the season broke hundreds of low-temperature records and resulted in the most extensive late October-early November snowpack in NOAA records.
Heavy snow blanketed the Rocky Mountains, the northern Plains, the Great Lakes and northern New England, resulting in 17.9% of the Lower 48 being covered by snow by the time the calendar flipped to November - a new record in books dating back to 2003.
But the northern hemisphere was not the only one experiencing unseasonable cold temperatures and snow, South Africa got blanketed by snow in Spring!

So far, the signs of a solar minimum-induced ice age are becoming clearer and more present, so prepare accordingly.

October has also been marked by unusually severe storms around the world. In just one week, we've seen eight different tropical cyclones make landfall around the globe, from Yemen to China, Vanuatu, Mexico, and the Leeward Islands.

Some of the most intense storms during this month:

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


The wildfire season around the world came to an abrupt end in September with sheets of water and widespread flooding. Furthermore, the increase in electrical phenomena, such as rare tornadoes, waterspouts, severe storms, and lightning, was evident this month.

In the United States, Hurricane Ida made landfall near Corpus Christi as a Category 1 storm with sustained winds up to 75 mph. The resulting high tides caused extensive coastal flood damage from Texas to Louisiana. Meanwhile, in India, heavy monsoon rains triggered severe flooding and mudslides that claimed over two dozen lives across the country. In South Africa, a similar weather system brought record-breaking rain which led to widespread power outages as well as road closures due to landslides.

The incredible amount of water and unexpected hailstorms also damaged a significant amount of crops in the Northern Hemisphere, as in the case of Valencia, Spain, where 54,000 acres were destroyed, causing losses of 43 million euros.

Excessive rainfall also damaged large areas of crops in the United States, Canada, India, Australia, China and parts of South and Southeast Asia.

Other flooding events worth mentioning this month:
  • Shenzhen, China - Record 18 inches of rainfall in just 12 hours
  • Rio Grande Do Sul, Brazil - 37 dead after unusually heavy rain and floods
  • Central Greece - Unusual heavy rain and floods caused widespread damage - 10 dead (2nd event in 3 weeks)
  • Astara, Iran - 10 inches of rain in just 12 hours
  • Turkey's Black Sea region - Deadly flash floods triggered 1000 landslides
  • Spain - 9.4 inches of rainfall in 24 hours
  • Massachusets, US - 11 inches of rain in just 6 to 7 hours
  • Arizona, US - 4 inches of rainfall in just 2 hours
  • Jalisco, Mexico - Sudden floods leave 7 people dead and 9 missing
We also need to pay attention to the skies, as there has been an increase in meteor fireballs this month. At the same time, we need to be aware of some unusual explosions around the world that could be caused by meteorites, as was the case with a warehouse in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Some media outlets blamed lightning for the explosion, and that's not too far of an assumption due to the number of strong lightning events around the world, but we can't rule out that it was caused by a meteorite. Witnesses reported a light in the sky and a loud explosion just before the fire.

SOTT Focus: 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.

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

Despite hysterical disinformation from the mainstream media, average July temperatures around the world were in line with previous years and were actually lower in some countries in the northern hemisphere.

It's worth noting that global warming alarmists blame hot temperatures for the raging wildfires around the world, but even if there has been a slight increase, some have been reported as arson (almost all of them in Greece for example), and others could have been caused by the increase in thunderstorms and isolated lightning strikes. In lesser cases, meteorites and overhead explosions can cause forest fires, in addition to outgassing.

Increased accumulation of conductive dust (volcanoes, comets, etc.) or rain promotes electrical discharges between higher layers of the atmosphere and the ground, which can manifest as lightning, intense tornadoes, waterspouts, more severe storms, or hurricanes. Something we can see quite clearly this month.

Here are some of the most remarkable precipitation and flooding events around the world for July 2023:
  • Bacolod and Manila, Philippines - 3 floods in 11 days triggered by Super Typhoon Doksuri.
  • Beijing, China - Heaviest rainfall in 140 years triggered by Super Typhoon Doksuri.
  • Sichuan Province, China - 11.8 inches of rain in 14 hours - 40,000 evacuated.
  • Sochi, Russia - 2 months of rain in 24 hours.
  • Milan - Italy - 2 weeks of rain in just 3 hours.
  • Netherlands and Germany - Storm Poly became the strongest summer storm on record.
  • Southwest Japan - Biggest rainfall on record - 16 inches of rain in 24 hours.
  • Lahore, Pakistan - Biggest rainfall in 30 years - 11.4 inches of rain in 10 hours
  • Kentucky - 11.2 inches of rain in 24 hours - Historic rainfall.
  • Vermont - 9 inches of rain in 24 hours - Historic flooding.
  • New York - 7 inches of summer rain in 24 hours - Severe flooding.
  • Chicago - 6 inches of rainfall - Historic summer flooding.
  • Valencia and Castellon, Spain - Hailstorm destroys more than 20,000 hectares of crops.
In recent years, a larger percentage of precipitation has come in the form of intense single-day events. Nine of the top 10 years for extreme one-day precipitation events have occurred since 1996
And some unseasonable snow events:
  • Europe's Dolomites and Alps - Rare summer snow.
  • Skardu, Pakistan - Unexpected summer snowfall breaks 18-year record.
  • Himachal Pradesh, India - 4 feet of summer snow.
  • Sierra Nevada - California - Snowpack at a staggering 1,000% of normal
It should be noted that increased precipitation along with colder-than-usual temperatures is the perfect mix for an intense winter. The Farmers' Almanac is already forecasting it:
With El Niño conditions brewing for later in 2023, cold temperatures will bring ice, sleet, and snow in January and February to those living on the I-95 corridor, between Washington D.C. and Boston.
Again, are we witnessing the first stages of an ice age?
The Sun has entered into the modern Grand Solar Minimum (2020-2053) that will lead to a significant reduction of solar magnetic field and activity like during Maunder minimum leading to noticeable reduction of terrestrial temperature. - Zharkova, 2020
Time will tell. Just remember that natural climate changes are not linear and periods of calm can be followed by sudden and rapid changes. Look for the signs and prepare accordingly.
