SOTT Earth Changes Summary - June 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Sott ECS June 2021 cover
The EU came up with the great idea of reducing the environmental impact of farming by cutting crop production, while food production worldwide is getting a significant hit from extreme weather, and the Covid lockdowns... you know, because reducing CO2 and "going green" is more important than food security. Make no mistake, they don't know what they are doing, and they do not have the planet's and your best interest in mind.

In the same nonsensical line, mass media focused on record heat temperatures in the West US during June, while completely ignoring the hundreds of record cold temperatures in the South and Midwest because it does not fit the "official climate change narrative".

At all costs, you must not pay attention to reality because reality does not follow the official narrative! So don't mind about the summer frost that swept across the UK or the below-freezing temperatures in the Scottish islands. And don't pay attention to Greenland's massive ice gains during the melt season, while Iceland reported anomalous snowstorms that trapped tourists in Vík í Mýrdal. And that's not all, New Zealand reported the all-time lowest temperature ever recorded with a -8.8°C at Dunedin International airport. And on the other side of the planet, Argentina reported an incredibly rare snowfall that damaged crops in Cordoba.

And what about those noctilucent clouds that have been seen further and further South, like in Paris and Calgary this month? These clouds are more evidence of the upper layers of the atmosphere getting colder, and more loaded with cosmic dust and volcanic ash. Of course, higher precipitation, and bigger hail are other related phenomena.

But Ok, it was not all about cold and snow, localized areas of the US Northwest and the Canadian West Coast are being beaten by record heat and droughts, which are making it almost impossible to grow seasonal crops.

Paraguay, Uruguay, and Brazil are also suffering from an anomalous drought that has damaged crops and affected food production, forcing halts in wheat exports. Brazil has lost 27% of its production this year, and 60% of households have food insecurity due to the lack of sufficient access to food.

In general, food prices continue to rise as global food production is reaching a bottleneck mainly caused by extreme weather.

Food prices continue to rise as extreme weather around the world strikes production, adding to the significant damage caused by the Covid lockdowns.

Snow and record cold temperatures for summer took the lead this month. The US, Canada, China, Russia and parts of Europe were caught by surprise despite mass media trying to normalize the unseasonable weather. This weather is far from normal and perhaps a sign that we are on the threshold of a new ice age.

An apocalyptic mouse plague in Australia is causing millions of dollars of damage to crops and farming machinery in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Local farmers continue to lose crops and grain while they have to pay thousands of dollars to contain the plague.

The damage to crops continues in East Africe and the Middle East. After three years of drought followed by record rain and floods, the area faces record-breaking swarms of crop-eating locusts that threaten the crops and the food security of millions. A one-square-kilometer swarm can consume the same amount of food in one day as 35,000 people. The governments of the affected countries are spending billions of dollars to avoid further losses, but it has proved to be quite a challenge so far.

Major flooding also caused a lot of trouble around the world this May. Cyclone Yaas lashed coastal areas of India and southern Bangladesh with strong winds, rain and floods causing widespread damage. More than one million were evacuated.

Cyclone Yaas also came at a time when India struggles to deal with a new wave of Covid infections, most probably caused by a combination of poor infrastructure, heavy levels of pollution, and mass vaccination campaigns.

In South America, severe floods caused by Amazon rivers reaching record highs affected more than 450 thousand people in Manaus. Peru and Colombia were also hit by severe flooding that triggered the relocation of thousands.

Many countries of the Middle East are facing an unprecedented amount of summer rain and floods while China braces for a heavy flood season with 71 rivers already exceeding warning levels.

Not a pretty picture but all this is part of natural cycles caused by our sun's activity and other cosmic factors. Pay attention, network and prepare accordingly if needed.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secs421
A sudden pressure difference between Greenland and northern Europe triggered a massive arctic cold blast that plunged temperatures to historical records throughout Europe. The extreme cold arrived less than a week after a record-warm period at the final days of March.

The thermometers in Capanna Margherita, Italy plunged to -33,2°C, while Novi Vasi, Slovenia registered an all-time national record of -20°C. The UK was also hit by a new national April cold record with -6°C, just a few days after an all-time record for March of -15,4°C in Eskdalemuir. And while we are there, the Alps also reported the coldest April in history.

Very low temperatures with record-breaking cold and damaging frost were also reported in parts of France, Germany, and Croatia.

A cold blast from the Arctic Ocean pushed Alaska into a deep freeze breaking two records for snowfall and low temperatures for two consecutive days. The historic storm ranked among the most intense snowfalls since records started and snow cover reached as far south as Oklahoma.

Extreme cold temperatures with substantial snowfall totals to match hit the Moscow region this month. Weather conditions were akin to those suffered during the depths of winter. At the same time, the eastern region of Russia registered the greatest snow cover for April.

Are we recognizing the pattern here?

Typhoon Surigae became the most intense April tropical cyclone on record and battered the eastern Philippines with 190mph winds and intense rain. Parts of East Nusa Tenggara Province saw more than 20 inches of rain in 2 days.

Heavy rain and flooding also affected the central and northern areas of Colombia triggering landslides and damaging homes. Thousands of families were affected.

Hail as large as softballs battered portions of Texas and Oklahoma, leaving behind shattered windows on cars and in homes. It was the second billion-dollar disaster this year in Texas.

Hundreds of new sinkholes have been reported in Konya Province, Turkey since the start of the year, almost double the number registered last year.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - March 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Sudden drops in temperature, heavy Spring snow, and erratic weather continued to hit the northern hemisphere well into March, while the southern hemisphere suffered from heavy rain, floods, and landslides, disrupting the lives of millions and affecting crops on a massive scale.

As temperatures continue to drop and sea ice continues to grow exponentially at both poles, Antarctica set its coldest March temperature on record: -75.3°C (-103.5°F).

But things are also "heating up", a dramatic increase in both the number of active volcanoes and recorded eruptions has been reported during March, not very good news for an already super-cold upper atmosphere.

From historic bush fires to 'once-in-a-century floods, Australia suffered one of its worst downpours after weather systems converged over Queensland and New South Wales, dumping more than 20 inches of rain in one day north of Brisbane, and nearly 40 inches in a week in New South Wales. Tens of thousands were displaced.

And talking about extreme weather, Taiwan experienced the worst drought in half a century after being hit by record floods during the pasts months.

Sudden downpours also wreaked havoc in parts of Latin America affecting thousands of families. In western Colombia, 60% of normal March rain fell in just 90 minutes, while a month's worth of rain fell in 2 hours in Grande Do Sul, Brazil.

As another example of things charging up in the Earth's upper atmosphere, the first 'space hurricane' with a 1,000 km-wide swirling mass of plasma was revealed by a team led by Shandong University in China, after an analysis of satellite data from August 2014. Formed hundreds of kilometers above the North Pole, these 'hurricanes' in many ways resemble the hurricanes formed in the Earth's lower atmosphere, but in this case, it causes a rain of electrons instead of water. Scientists assume that it must be created by an unusually large and rapid transfer of solar wind energy and charged particles (from different sources out in space) into the Earth's upper atmosphere.

Keep your eyes on the sky folks, as meteor fireballs are delivering an increasingly stunning and alarming show in recent years.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - February 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsfeb2021
Unusually cold temperatures and record snow continued to hit the US well into February, blanketing large parts of the territory.

Winter Storm Shirley impacted the Deep and Upland South and Ohio Valley. In Texas, main roads were blocked, more than 4 million households were without power, and as many as 10 million were left without tap water. It was the costliest natural disaster in the recorded history of the state.

Basic infrastructure was affected as it proved ill-prepared for such a sudden drop in temperatures. "Green energy" also proved to be quite useless in such emergencies with frozen wind turbines and unusable solar panels covered in snow. Is this a glimpse of what may occur in other countries?

Major power outages were also reported in Chihuahua, Mexico, as the same weather system affected northern parts of Mexico and its "green energy" output.

The storm also caused icy precipitation across the Mid-Atlantic states causing over 212,000 power outages and killing at least 12 people.

Freezing rain also left roads, power lines, and trees covered in ice in the North-Western Portland-Oregon, region, and left more than 270,000 people without power. A total of 11.1 inches of snow also fell in Seattle in the middle of the month, making it the snowiest day in Seattle in 52 years.

But the US was not the only country with rare snow and extreme cold events this February. Moscow had its heaviest snowfall in 100 years, with a month's worth of snow falling in just two days. And another snowstorm hit Crimea, forcing the closing of the Crimean Bridge for the first time.

Further south, after a period of unseasonably warm weather across the country, the cold front "Medea" brought frigid temperatures and snow to northern Greece.

A strong winter storm also battered northern Japan coastal regions, ripping off roofs, flooding homes and disrupting transport.

It should be noted that Scotland, Italy, Libya, and Kazakhstan also experienced extreme cold and snowfall this past month.

We continue to read month after month about record-breaking cold and snow, longer winters, increased precipitation, and while climate is a complex matter, and there have been anomalous record heat waves in some countries from time to time, when we consider the numbers, increasingly cold temperatures and heavier snowfalls predominate. The evidence suggests that a new ice age is settling in.

As part of this shift, weather chaos is also part of the picture. Heavy rain and floods continued to disrupt normal life around the world. Raging floods displaced 60,000 in Java Island, 30,000 in Greater Jakarta Region, and affected 90,000 in Semarang City, Indonesia.

South Wales was slammed by a month's worth of rain in 24 hours, while in France, rivers across the country burst banks as Storm Justine dumped half a month's worth of rain in 24 hours.

A 7.3-magnitude quake struck off the coast of Fukushima, Japan. The quake came nearly a decade after an earthquake and tsunami killed over 18,000 people.

One thing is sure, it's becoming increasingly clear that humans are not in control of what's going on out there.

Winters are becoming harsher and lengthier, impacting basic infrastructure and crops around the world. It's clear that we are not properly prepared for the coming ice age.

The most impactful winter snowstorm in the US so far caused a rapid decrease in temperature and dumped snow from the Midwest to the Northeast, affecting hundreds of millions. More than half the US was covered in snow and some cities received up to 19 inches. The US is seeing winter storm after winter storm with no relief.

Iowa got hit by a new record snowfall this month with 19 inches dumped in Des Moines, the snowiest January for the last 130 years. Extreme snowfall also buried Texas and the Mississippi Valley, leaving 150,000 people in the dark.

15 inches of rain, floods, up to 100 inches of snow, mudslides, a massive landslide, and wildfires hit California. Again, extreme weather is disrupting the lives of millions of Californians contributing to a 'mass exodus' from the state.

Europe and Asia also experienced one of their most intense winters in recent years, with temperatures in some areas dropping as low as -46.2 degrees Celsius.

Storm Filomena hit Spain this month, producing the coldest night for at least 20 years when the temperature plunged to -25C in Molina de Aragón, and Teruel, and a record snowfall since 1971 killed half a million trees in Madrid. All this was accompanied by a supercell storm with winds of 150 km/h in Lleida, flash floods in the south, and a M4.4 earthquake in Granada. Two meteor fireballs were also recorded over Galicia and Granada.

Siberia again broke the global cold temperature record this month, with -58°C at one locality, meanwhile, Mongolia faced one of the most extreme winters on record with temperatures as low as -50 C.

South Korea got hit by the season's harshest weather as a cold wave with heavy snow and strong winds brought traffic to a stop and grounded planes. The temperature in Seoul dropped to -16.1 C, with a wind chill of -25.3 C.

Many meteor fireballs were witnessed or recorded during the day this month, while a small meteorite fell on a house in Indonesia. A sign of increased cometary activity?

Heavy rains and floods continued to hit east and southeast Asia, with millions affected. The worst flood in half a century hit Malaysia prompting the evacuation of 50,000 people, while Chennai, India recorded the highest rainfall for a January day since 1915.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - December 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsdec20
2020 ended with some amazing Earth Changes events, including a huge bolide that detonated above western China in late December. The largest meteor fireball event of the year, there hasn't been as spectacular an atmospheric event (caught on camera anyway) since the Chelyabinsk meteor of 2013. Additionally, there were many other meteor fireball sightings globally last month, including two seen from the US state of Idaho.

Deluges across Southeast Asia last month included nonstop downpours in Vietnam that resulted in severe flooding and killed some 280 people, with dozens more reported missing. Central Philipines is another area that has been hit by nonstop rain, and since October. Meanwhile, floodwaters in western Indonesia reached as high as 5 meters, causing widespread damage. Heavy rains and extreme flooding also hit Brazil for the second month in a row. Authorities there confirmed that at least 700 died just in Rio de Janeiro - and within one week.

Elsewhere a mammoth 700 meter-wide "quick clay slide" in Ask, Norway destroyed 30 houses, injured at least 10 people, and left 21 missing. At least 1,000 residents were evacuated from the area. This was the second such event reported this year in Norway and the largest in the area so far. The first one took place in June and ran more than 600 meters along the shore and 150 meters inland.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - November 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secs november 2020
Brace yourselves for a bumpy ride! It seems that nature has a lot to say and she's not holding back. If October was loaded with Extreme Weather, November went on better.

Eta, the biggest storm of a record-breaking hurricane season, devastated Central America, parts of the Caribbean, and hit parts of southeast Mexico, and the US with heavy rain and floods.

In Central America, the crops and shelters people used when they worked the land were gone without a trace. In the worst-hit countries of Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala, 90 people died and 113 are still missing, with 210,000 evacuated from their homes.

Even as the region reeled from the devastation caused by Hurricane Eta, hurricane Iota arrived, unleashing torrential floods, flipping roofs onto streets, and killing at least nine people across Central America and the Caribbean. About 100,000 Nicaraguans and Hondurans were evacuated from their homes.

Brazil also took a significant hit this month, with unprecedented floods, record cold temperatures, hailstorms and a streak of meteor fireballs. Leading to significant crop losses, and infrastructure damage.

On the other side of the globe, heavy rains triggered by Storm Etau caused landslides and severe flooding in the central provinces of Vietnam. Since the previous month, the region was hit by torrential rains, widespread flooding, and landslides caused by one storm after another. At least 235 people were killed or are missing, and thousands of houses have been flooded.

Another major storm, typhoon Goni, brought devastating winds and rain to the Philippines, affecting more than 19 million with floods and landslides. In addition, the northeast region was pummeled again by another storm that left at least 13 people dead, 15 missing, and 200,000 evacuated. 1.9 million households were without power in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Along with the sheets of rain, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the 2nd largest Philippine island of Mindanao, with no casualties or damage reported.

Over the past few years of tracking these events, it is clear that precipitation around the world had increased dramatically in that time. If temperatures in the upper layers of the atmosphere continue to drop, this amount of water may soon translate into truly massive snowfalls, causing even more damage to crops, cattle and essential infrastructure.

Speaking of the white stuff, cold and snow records continued to be broken this month in parts of the US, Canada, China, Russia and the Middle East. Increasingly cold temperatures are having a significant impact on millions of people around the world, and we must ask: are we actually already experiencing the first signs of a new ice age? If so, we may all pay a heavy price for the distraction of the "invisible enemy" that grabbed the headlines for most of this year

Meteor/fireballs put on another spectacular show this month. It seems reasonable to assume that the undeniable increase in these space rocks in our skies and the chaos in the domain of human affairs, is not a coincidence. Maybe we should start paying attention to "cosmic intentions" rather than the machinations of our petty tyrant political leaders.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - October 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

SECSoct2020
Record early snow, record cold, huge hail, raging wildfires, deadly floods, droughts, powerful volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, amazing meteor fireballs... you name it, October 2020 had it all.

It's no exaggeration to say that we found this month to be the most extreme yet, weather-wise, in 2020. We advise everyone to pay attention to these events and prepare accordingly. As socio-political chaos increases, the environment responds accordingly. The more the elites squeeze the people, the more the people suffer, the more severe the weather and seismic activity becomes.

This was the coldest October ever recorded for the US, while many early snow records were broken around the world. Record-breaking snowfall blanketed US states from Montana to New Mexico, and record cold temperatures were shattered in parts of the West and Midwest US.

Lyman, Wyoming broke all cold records with -35° C; Potomac, Montana reached -33.9°C; and Boise, Idaho reached -13°C, breaking the old record of -8°C in 1878... and we're only in the second month of autumn.

"Tree carnage" was reported in Oklahoma City after a powerful ice storm. Vegetation and power lines collapsed, leaving up to 300,000 people without power.

British Columbia, Canada was blanketed with snowfall that broke a 120-year-old record, while 80% of Russia was covered, to one extent or another, in the white stuff.

Dig out your winter woollies, because if these trends continue, this winter could be a doozie!

Strangely enough, and possibly linked, for the first time in recorded history, the Arctic Ocean had not begun to freeze this October, and the Greenland ice season stopped a month early. No, that does not mean "global warming lives!" Rather, it's caused by changing ocean currents and increasing volcanic activity; both symptoms of the Solar Minimum Earth is currently going through.

Corporate media is trying to focus on some warm "spots" around the world, or to normalize what seems to be the beginning of a mini-ice age, while "globalist" types plan an economic, political, and social "reset", using 'The Covid' as cover.

Compounding the dystopian reality we entered in 2020, crop damage caused by extreme weather has also become 'the new normal' around the world, putting food security in serious jeopardy.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - September 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secssep20
Extended winter, widespread floods, raging wildfires, damaged crops, zombie tropical storms and record hurricane downfalls for September.

Excessive monsoon rains continued breaking records, affecting millions of people across South and East Asia. September used to bring clear weather with less chance of rain and more pleasant temperatures... but we are seeing quite the opposite: heavy floods, cold and unseasonable snow.

Subtropical storm Alpha, which barreled along the Portuguese coast and through some parts of Spain, was the first event of its kind to be registered since weather records began. Entire beaches were consumed by rapid rises in sea levels, coastal areas got heavy floods and winds of up to 100km/h were registered in some inland locations.

Over 100 were rescued and 500,000 residents were left without power as Hurricane Sally brought down power lines in parts of Florida and Alabama. Insurance companies have put the costs of damage in the Gulf Coast region between $1 billion and $3 billion. And while the Gulf Coast was still recovering from Sally, tropical storm Beta caused flash flooding in the coasts of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

If hurricane Delta had hit the US Gulf Coast, this hurricane season would break the record for the most land falling named systems in the US in a single year, surpassing the historic 2005 season, which had seven.

In Asia, tropical Storm Noul caused widespread damage in Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand, thousands were displaced and at least 10 died.

And Istanbul, Turkey got a destructive combo this month with severe hailstorm, heavy rains, a waterspout and flash floods.

Winter is becoming the 'new normal'. Autumn in the Northern hemisphere and Spring in the southern are giving way to colder temperatures and unseasonable snow.

September has left fresh snow in the Dolomites, Pyrenees and up in Scandinavia; early snow in Russia, and China, as well as in the US and Canada. And late snowfalls in Australia and New Zealand. Snow has been falling in areas where it's not usually seen.

Many counties around the world reported massive crop losses from floods, hail, snow and even volcano ashes this month. Governments are paying too much attention to an imaginary enemy not seeing the elephant wreaking havoc in the room.

Beached whales and dolphins, as well as mass dead birds continue to increase, something that could point out to a magnetic pole shift and waning magnetosphere, another consequence of the solar minimum.
