SOTT Earth Changes Summary - August 2022: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secs0822
Heavy rain, floods, and huge hail continued to wreak havoc worldwide in August. The solar minimum has triggered three consecutive years of La Niña and stronger monsoons in Asia, bringing wetter and colder conditions in some parts of the world, and drier and hotter conditions in others. Yet, this pattern also predicts a significant impact in the northern hemisphere during the winter, with colder temperatures and more snow precipitation.

One-third of Pakistan has been hit with non-stop rains and floods for the most part of this summer. The catastrophic monsoon rain and floods are unprecedented in scale and scope. So far, 33 million people have been affected and the country's agriculture, a pillar Pakistan's economy, has been overwhelmed. Nearly half the cotton crop has been lost.

In Afghanistan, several provinces across the eastern, central, southern, and western regions were also hit by heavy rains, resulting in flash floods and landslides that caused the deaths of more than 180 people, displaced at least 8,000 others, and damaged at least 3,000 houses.

As much as 15 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in parts of northern Texas, triggering flash floods across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Meanwhile, heavy rain and floods took their toll in parts of New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Las Vegas got its second mayor flood in the span of 2 weeks caused by an unusually wet monsoon season for the desert city.

In West Virginia, the Governor declared a state of emergency after heavy floods caused damage to dozens of homes in Fayette and Kanawha counties. Some residents had to be rescued and evacuated from flooded areas. Roads and bridges were also damaged.

Massive hail hit parts of China, South Africa and France, causing widespread damage to buildings, cars, and crops. At least a dozen people sustained significant injuries.

In Catalonia, a 20-month-old girl died after being struck by a large hailstone as fierce storms raged across parts of the northeastern Spanish region. It was the largest hail seen in two decades.

Hailstones rarely poses a safety threat to people, but it has happened:
The World Meteorological Organization reported that the highest mortality associated with a hailstorm happened near Moradabad, India, on April 30, 1888. The deadly storm killed 246 people with pieces of hail as large as "goose eggs, oranges and cricket balls."
And:
In spite of the enormous crop and property damage that hailstorms cause, only three people are known to have been killed by falling hailstones in modern U.S. history: a farmer caught in his field near Lubbock, Texas on May 13, 1930; a baby struck by large hail in Fort Collins, Colorado, on July 31, 1979; and a boater on Lake Worth, Texas, on March 29, 2000.
And last but not least, an unseasonable and sudden bout of heavy snow hit multiple mountainous areas in Altay Prefecture, northwest China. A rare sight for this time of the year.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - July 2022: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

As the solar minimum deepens, we feel the impact down here in the form of record rainfall, huge hail, raging floods, localized heat waves, and unseasonable snow.

The diminished solar activity has also contributed to the weakening of the magnetosphere, meaning that (among other things) more cosmic rays pass unimpeded through the upper layers of our atmosphere, seeding clouds. But that's not all, we need to remember that the accumulation of volcanic and cometary ash and dust particles contributes to clouds formation and promotes precipitation, so we have a perfect mix for record-breaking rains and floods.

When we add in decreasing temperatures in higher layers of the atmosphere, huge hail and unseasonable snow make a lot of sense. Furthermore, the jet stream continues with its unusual 'meandering' including creating a 'double flow' that has been causing pockets of heat.

As we have been repeating for some time, we are reaching a global weather pattern that points to an eventual global cooling or ice age.

Of course, you'll see a bunch of anthropogenic warm-mongers pulling their hair out about record heat in the northern hemisphere, yet, this is not caused by CO2 and cow farts, but, in this case, by La Niña and the displacement of the jet stream.

Now we also know that 96% of the US temperature stations' data is not reliable as they are purposely placed in hot spots - or Urban Heat Islands.

Don't be fooled, anthropogenic climate change has always been the alibi of pathological globalists to profit from an illusion, and gain more control over the population. All while the global food, economic and social crisis unfolds, provoked largely by idiotic "green measures" that threaten most countries of the Western world - mainly Europe - with more food scarcity and a very harsh winter.

As Dr. Sc. Habibullo Abdussamatov, Head of Space research laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory said:
The Sun defines the climate, not carbon dioxide.

The so-called 'greenhouse effect will not avert the onset of the next deep temperature drop, the 19th in the last 7500 years, which without fail follows after natural warming.

We should fear a deep temperature drop — not catastrophic global warming. Humanity must survive the serious economic, social, demographic and political consequences of a global temperature drop, which will directly affect the national interests of almost all countries and more than 80% of the population of the Earth.
There are many others reaching similar conclusions.

Now imagine the global impact of such a dramatic natural change, along with all the manufactured crisis that we are already experiencing thanks to the Great Reset airheads.

So pay attention and prepare accordingly.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - June 2022: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

sott earth changes june 2022
Unseasonable snow in the Northern Hemisphere continued to make headlines in June. High parts of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Hampshire got up to 16 inches of snow, disrupting travel.

There were unprecedented summer snowfalls in central Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan that dumped historic accumulations in Samangan province, killing cattle and damaging seasonal crops.

1,000 people died, and 1,500 were wounded after a 5.9M earthquake hit eastern Afghanistan, compounding the struggle in a nation already affected by a food crisis.

China's Sichuan province was hit by a shallow 6.1M earthquake that took the lives of at least four people and wounded 14 others.

Extreme storms, floods, and landslides wreaked havoc around the world this month.

Half a million people have been affected by the heaviest downpour in 60 years, triggering floods and landslides in Guangdong, China. The record-breaking event caused the evacuation of 177,600 people, destroyed 1,729 houses, and damaged 27.13 hectares of crops.

Meanwhile, unusually heavy floods and landslides affected over 2 million people in the provinces of Hunan and Jiangxi in China after days of heavy rain. At least 32 died, 2,700 houses collapsed, around 286,000 people were evacuated, and 76,300 hectares of cropland were heavily damaged.

In northeastern India and Bangladesh, at least 18 people died, and 2 million homes were destroyed as massive floods ravaged the area.

Furthermore, lightning in parts of Bangladesh killed at least nine people.

At least 17 people died after heavy rain caused flooding and landslides in Meghalaya, Assam, and Sikkim, India. Parts of Meghalaya recorded more than 31 inches of rain in 24 hours, leaving a broad path of destruction. 150 people died, and 200,000 were displaced. In Assam, 5 million were affected by heavy floods of overflowing rivers.

Strong winds and thunderstorms, heavy rain, floods, and hail wreaked havoc across France from June 3rd to 5th. 65 departments across the country were affected, thousands of homes lost power, and at least one person died in flood waters in Rouen. 15 people were injured across the country.

For the first time in more than 20 years, Météo-France issued orange level alerts for almost all departments in the country.

Huge hail also left a mark around the world this month. Texas, Wisconsin, Mexico City, Germany, Italy, and Budapest, were the most affected.

** Sorry the Earth Changes Summary Video for May is so late - all Sott.net chroniclers were attending a wedding! **

Hurricanes, earthquakes and lightning... we see 'a bad moon rising'! May 2022 had it all - blistering heatwaves, deadly deluges, unseasonal snowfalls, and terrifying tornadoes. Your government reassures you that the climate going haywire is 'fixable' and 'predictable', but how are green taxes and energy blackouts going to stop volcanoes erupting and meteors falling?

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2022 - Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

ecsapr22
Hundreds of food processing and food distribution facilities around the world were forced to halt activities since the lockdowns started, some of them suffered cyberattacks, and hundreds of others have exploded or burned down, a trend that increased considerably this year with up to 28 facilities burned down in mysterious ways just in the US.

Other related events worth mentioning: Further, The Guardian in the U.K. came up with a brilliant study that concluded that Northern Ireland must get rid of 1.2 million sheep and cattle, along with 5 million chickens, to meet zero carbon emissions and a 50% reduction in methane emissions... all this while global food prices are at their highest points in the 32-year history.

Well, does this sounds like a manufactured crisis? You bet. Yet, nature has its own plans, and the consequences are becoming the most significant factor.

We wanted to highlight that the most relevant events this month are related to unseasonable temperature drops and snow around the world, up to the end of April.

Winter-like temperatures have been gaining ground throughout the years damaging crops and crippling livestock farms, meanwhile planting and harvesting seasons keep getting displaced.

Sudden drops in temperatures are also worth mentioning, as in the Cascades, Washington that triggered a heavy snowfall that caused dozens of road accidents. In Europe, France registered the coldest April night since 1947.

There were a couple of extreme heat events during this month in some parts of the US, Europe and Asia, but they pale in comparison with the overarching frigid temperatures.

Unusually heavy rain and floods have also been contributing to damaged crops and farms.

Brazil continued to struggle with heavy rain, floods, and landslides this month, with a record of 31 inches of rainfall in 48 hours in Rio de Janeiro. In Antioquia, Colombia unusually heavy rain triggered destructive landslides causing the deaths of 12 people.

Thailand and the Philippines are having trouble recovering from the damage caused by continuous floods and landslides since last year. The trend continues as tropical storm Megi poured 10 inches of rainfall in 24 hours killing at least 224 and displacing thousands. While in south Thailand a foot of rain in 48 hours triggered the evacuation of 20,000 families.

The deadliest storm in record pummelled KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa destroying homes, bridges and roads. Floods and landslides caused the deaths of at least 450 and displaced thousands. The storm forced sub-Saharan Africa's most important port to halt operations.

In Uzbekistan at least 4 people died as a result of floods and mudslides after a month's worth of rain fell in less than 2 hours. Floods and mudflows also damaged crops, homes, schools and other buildings. At least 260 farms and buildings suffered damage, and 100 people were displaced. It was the worst storm in 80 years.

Over the last few years, winter has continued to gain ground over spring, and this time is no exception.

A late winter storm blasted the northeastern United States with high winds and snow, sending temperatures plummeting and making travel hazardous. The Ohio River Valley experienced the heaviest snowfall that blanketed parts of Nashville, Tennessee, and Cincinnati. Parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, North Dakota, and California also reported unseasonable snow throughout the month. Moreover, sudden temperature drop and blinding snow showers caused a 60 vehicle pile-up on Interstate 81 in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, causing the death of 6.

Much of the UK remained in sub-zero conditions later this month due to a sudden blast of arctic air that brought snowfalls as far as south London. Travel and power experienced disruptions in the northern parts of the county.

Untimely snow also reached parts of Greece and Turkey several times this month, including on the first day of spring. Heavy snowfalls disrupted transportation and power in Istambul throughout mid-march, while a village in the eastern province of Muş was covered by unusual levels of snow.

Unprecedented floods across much of Australia's east coast triggered mass evacuations and destroyed hundreds of homes. Tens of thousands fled Sydney as heavy floods lashed overnight. Some suburbs exceed March's mean rainfall. While many areas in northern and eastern parts of New South Wales were recovering from the widespread flooding that began in late February, heavy rain triggered a second destructive flood late this month after a levee along the Wilsons River in Lismore breached once again.

Three months after deadly floods claimed dozens of lives in Malaysia, heavy rainfall affected more than a hundred houses in Kampung Periuk and Kampung Pasir Baru. In Indonesia, floods and landslides affected more than 30,000, and almost 10,000 were displaced.

Flooding also caused severe damage in areas of Cotopaxi Province in Ecuador. Dozens of families were evacuated, and thousands were isolated after overflowing rivers destroyed main bridges. Meanwhile, in Petropolis, Brazil, a month's worth of rain fell in a matter of hours causing damage to 100 homes, mostly due to landslides.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - February 2022 - Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

earth changes feb 2022
Heavy snow, freezing rain, and ice hit much of the Central, Eastern, and Southern U.S. this month. Hundreds of thousands suffered power outages, and 5,200 flights got canceled.

Brazil was hit by an unprecedented amount of rain during February, affecting millions. Mudslides and floods hit the city of Petropolis killing at least 152, flooding rivers in Rondônia displaced thousands, and roads turned into rivers in Umuarama.

A cold front brought heavy rain and strong winds to Haiti and Dominican Republic. Rain fell for 36 hours, and several rivers have broken their banks. Nearly 3,444 homes were affected, and 2,500 families were displaced.

Parts of Quito, Ecuador, were devastated by the heaviest rain in almost 20 years. 40 times more rain fell than predicted by the forecasts. The deluge triggered a landslide that destroyed houses, carried away dozens of vehicles, and claimed 24 lives.

At least 20 people died, and more than 55,000 others were displaced after Cyclone Batsirai slammed into the eastern coast of Madagascar. The widespread floods damaged the main road linking the north and south areas of the island, destroyed 8000 houses, and displaced 131,000 people.

Cyclone Batsirai killed at least ten people and displaced nearly 48,000 in Madagascar. Parts of the country were affected by heavy rains and strong winds that uprooted trees and destroyed houses. All this while the island was still reeling from a deadly tropical storm earlier this year.

Storm Eunice wreaked havoc across the UK with 122 miles per hour winds that uprooted trees, blown-off roofs, and knocked out power lines. It is now considered the strongest storm in the history of England.

Eunice caused four deaths in the Netherlands, two in the UK, two in Belgium, and one in Ireland.

Later this month, Storm Franklin caused heavy floods in the northern UK, triggering the evacuation of thousands of people.

In Argentina, wildfires out of control have scorched almost 800,000 hectares of the province of Corrientes, 9% of the province's area. The fires have acutely affected wildlife in the area.

A strong and shallow earthquake shook Indonesia's Sumatra island on Friday. The tremor damaged buildings, killed seven people and injured 85. More than 5,000 people fled their homes to temporary shelters.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - January 2022 - Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

ecs0122
January 2022 was marked by significant drops in temperatures and sudden record snowfalls around the world.

Historic winter blizzards hit much of the East Coast and central U.S. states throughout this month, crippling entire towns and leaving millions without power.

This is nearly a year after a catastrophic freeze damaged the power grid for days in Texas, leaving millions without power and leading to hundreds of deaths. It was one of the worst blackouts in US history.

Upper East Coast states in the US are already facing food shortages with no resupply in sight. Some of these are relying on Canada for food imports, but this could be temporary as Canada's supply and distribution chains are halted, for now.

Heavy rain, snow, and storms affected millions in Palestine, Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon, triggering an electricity crisis and soaring prices of fuel and food.

An undersea volcano erupted near Tonga triggering a devastating tsunami that reached Alaska and the US west coast with significant intensity. The explosion was hundreds of times more powerful than the Hiroshima atomic bomb.

More volcanic ash in the upper atmosphere is not good news considering the record snowfalls and overall precipitation around the world.

Fuel, gas, food, and power prices continue to soar around the world while the idiots behind the Great Reset keep pushing for a widespread crisis. Are they aware of the full impact that extreme weather is having on the supply and distribution chains along with their manipulations? It seems that nature could get ahead and trigger a global crisis that could affect everyone, including them and their pathological plans to gain more and more control.

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

esc1221
Another record-breaking cold December with a historic -61°C in Siberia, and unusual heavy snowfalls that trapped people inside their houses in NY, and some others in an Ikea store in Aalborg, Denmark.

Northern parts of California were hit by a record-breaking amount of snow, following a year of heat and drought that triggered water shortages and wildfires. Lake Tahoe saw 212 inches (5 meters) of snow, and the Sierra Nevada registered 202 inches of snow (5.2 meters) this month, making it the snowiest December ever since the tracking started (1970).

Extreme blizzards and record snow were also reported in northern parts of Spain and France. Arette La Pierre Saint-Martin registered 1.6 m (5 feet) of snow, a record for the month since records started in 1971, and 8 feet (2,445 m) at lac d'Ardiden, the highest since the records started in 1995.

In Asia, a powerful storm dumped 28 inches (70 cm) of snow in western Japan, disrupting travel and leaving hundreds without power. Obama city in Fukui, Japan's coastal region, received record snowfall for this time of the year.

Heavy snowfall also wreaked havoc in the eastern and western provinces of Turkey, blocking roads and disrupting travel, while in Istanbul, a monster windstorm blew away at least 33 roofs, knocked down traffic signs, uprooted 192 trees, and damaged 12 cars. At least 6 people died and 38 others were injured.

And talking about monster storms, "the most severe weather event in the history of British Columbia" continued, triggering widespread flooding in British Columbia this month, leaving a total of $450 million in damages.

Malaysia's worst floods in years, triggered by days of heavy rain, displaced an estimated 70,000 people in the southern and eastern parts of the country. A total of 210 areas in six states have been affected by the floods.

Weeks of intermittent heavy rain, and the collapse of two dams, triggered deadly floods in northeastern Brazil. At least 20 people died and more than 16,000 were left homeless in 11 separate municipalities.

Northern Spain was also hit by record flooding following heavy rain and snowfall. The Ebro River's water level swelled up to 27 feet (8.5 meters) in some areas, breaking a 6-year record. The regions of Navarra and Aragon were the most affected.

A deadly late-season tornado outbreak, the deadliest on record in December, produced catastrophic damage and numerous fatalities across portions of the Southern United States and Ohio Valley. Over 3 dozen tornadoes, including a massive one that tracked through 4 states, were reported. Less than a week later, a rare wind storm brought 'Dust Bowl' conditions and gusts of more than 100 mph (160 kph) to parts of the Great Plains and upper midwest. The powerful storm system triggered power outages in four US states, including in more than 100,000 homes and businesses in Colorado.

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

ecsnov21
This past month of November, it seems it was all about fire in the sky and ice on the ground. A record number of meteor fireball sightings around the world were registered last month, well surpassing the numbers of recent years. The Taurids and Leonids contributed to the show, but those seasonal meteor showers alone couldn't have caused all the events this month. Something wicked this way comes?

Early heavy snowfalls and record cold temperatures hit many countries around the world this month, but the US, China, and parts of Europe were the most affected.

The US Midwest and Northeast were hit by a rare November blizzard that brought 30-40mph winds, record snow, and icy temperatures. These early cold temperatures raise concerns for a harsh winter.

Much of northern China, including the capital Beijing, was hit by freezing, 10-year record low temperatures, and early snowfall, sparking highway closures and flight and train cancellations.

In the capital city of Shenyang, in Liaoning province, average snowfall reached 20 inches (51cm), the highest recorded snowfall since 1905.

After months of heavy rain and floods that damaged basic infrastructure and crops, Chinese people fear that a harsh winter might worsen food production and distribution, and make it difficult to keep homes warm in the areas hit by power outages earlier this year.

Extreme weather has pummeled at least half of Australia this month with severe thunderstorms, strong winds, heavy rain, flooding, and rare snowfall. Queensland, New South Wales, and Dubbo recorded 1.6 inches (40.2mm) of rain in 30 minutes. Crops and farmland were damaged, and many roads were closed.

Things are really heating up in Australia, could all this extreme weather be connected to the suffering caused by their government's totalitarian "Covid measures"?

Heavy rains and floods continued to wreak havoc in South and Southeast Asia. Cyclone Nakri dumped 34 inches of rain in just 4 days causing serious flooding, and power outages in the central provinces of Vietnam. 60,000 homes were destroyed, and at least 18 were reported dead.

Snowfalls, heavy rains, and strong winds hit parts of Italy and Spain, one person was reported dead and several people were rescued from flooded homes.

Two powerful earthquakes, magnitude 6.4 and 6.3 respectively, hit southern Iran leaving one person dead, while a 7.5 magnitude earthquake shook the remote Amazon region of northern Peru, destroying 75 homes.

Please pay attention, and prepare accordingly!
