While Western leaders plot more Wars of Distraction, Mother Nature unleashed her fury last month in the form of torrential rainfall and devastating landslides across all continents. From the U.S. to Nigeria, from the Balkans to Japan, flash-flooding from cloudbursts turned highways into rivers and mountains into fountains of mud and rock. Three waterspouts appeared off the Swedish coast; six waterspouts - some of them coming ashore - terrified residents in Genoa; and tornadoes AGAIN hit Istanbul and the city of San Cristobal de las Casas in southern Mexico.

Raging wildfires and 'severe drought' alternated with 'monsoons' in western U.S. states. The worst wildfires are burning at the most northerly regions of the planet: Canada and Siberia. More typhoons slammed into Japan and China, dumping several feet of water and forcing hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate their homes. Meanwhile hurricanes in both the Atlantic and Pacific caused coastal damage in California and Hawaii, where the first direct hit from a hurricane in 22 years occurred on the same day as an earthquake.

Remember those 'crater-holes' in Siberia? Something similar appeared in Utah this month, while more sinkholes swallowed more cars, and a 1km-long rift opened up in northern Mexico. The discovery of hundreds of new methane plumes off the Northeastern U.S. coast coincided with researchers reporting a major increase in methane outgassing in the Arctic. As South Africa was hit by its strongest quake in 45 years, Californians moved one step closer to 'the big one', with the state's strongest earthquake for 25 years destroying buildings and injuring 200 people.

As above, so below: up in the skies, spectacular 'jet-lightning' bolts, 'earthquake lights', meteor fireballs and 'UFOs' were caught on camera... stand by for the Signs of the Times in August 2014:

SOTT Earth Changes Video Summary - July 2014

Signs of the Times in July 2014

The seventh installment in our monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during July 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

As geo-political events took a crazy turn in July - with Israel launching its most destructive 'war' on Gaza on the Palestinians since the Nakba, agents of the Western Empire blowing Malaysian Airlines MH17 out of the sky to demonize Putin, and Kiev scaling up its massacre of Eastern Ukrainians - the planet reflected this chaos with even more extreme weather.

Numerous meteor fireballs were seen across swathes of the U.S. and Russia; intense electrical storms pounded the U.S. and Europe; enormous quantities of hail were dumped in places used to scorching heat this time of year; 'tornado season' continued its year-round cycle all over the world; devastating landslides killed hundreds in India and China; people and cattle everywhere were killed by lightning; hurricane-force winds left destruction in Southern Russia and Australia; and just about everywhere was inundated with deluges of rain.

Meanwhile, the planet's EM field has dropped significantly in recent months, while the Sun was practically spotless this month, despite the fact we're currently at Solar Max in Sunspot Cycle 24. July was the coldest in U.S. history, despite record-breaking wildfires and drought in the western half of the country. Between the hail, the downpours, the cold and the storms, farmers everywhere are facing severe losses from crop damage.

Inexplicable mass animal die-offs continue, with dead sea creatures washing up on lakeshores and coastlines around the world. More enormous sinkholes appeared, notably three 'crater-holes' in northern Russia and a 100-feet-wide sinkhole in Florida that witnesses say 'exploded up in the air'. Rounding out the month was an unbelievable series of explosions in Taiwan that gouged whole streets and injured hundreds of people.

Tornadoes in Boston, rivers and seas turning blood red, fire falling from the skies, snow in July, lakes appearing in the Sahara overnight... we are definitely NOT not in Kansas anymore!

SOTT Earth Changes Video Summary - June 2014

Signs of the Times in June 2014

The sixth installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during June 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

While billions have been glued to TV screens for the soccer World Cup this past month, Nature put on a show that saw major flooding on every continent, not least in Brazil where 250 people were killed by flash-flooding and landslides, and a huge sinkhole swallowed streets just miles from one of the host nation's venues. Mid-18th century flood-level records were broken in the U.S. and E.U. There were also a LOT of tornadoes and waterspouts in places that don't normally see them.

The month began and ended with dramatic fireball appearances in the UK. The first one was really weird: a fireball turning circles in the sky! While many are attributing 'intelligence' to this burning object, accounts from previous eras of environmental and social upheaval describe such 'fire in the sky', whose gravity-defying behavior can be explained via plasma physics.

Then there were the hailstorms. 'Baseball-sized hail' used to mean something rare and freakish. Now it's positively common! Last month they were sweeping away piles of hail with diggers in Sao Paulo; this month they did likewise in eastern Spain, Tokyo and Turkey. The damage caused runs into billions of dollars. Iowa's corn crop was savaged, farmers in Turkey are devastated, and this year's fruit crop in Valencia, Spain, was all but wiped out.

Spectacular electrical storms in summertime aren't unusual, but snowfall in regions adjacent to territory scorched by wildfires are: despite earlier heatwaves, snow returned to much of Scandinavia, the Rockies and Western Canada. Speaking of wildfires, so far this year Russia has seen twice the number of wildfires reported last year, while in the U.S. they have already surpassed the 2013 total.

Get ready for the Greatest Show on Earth!


Comment: Correction 6 July 2014

It has been brought to our attention that footage included in this Video Summary of record-breaking flooding in Hungary is in fact from last year, early June 2013.

Signs of the Times in May 2014

The fifth installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during May 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

Highlights this month include: wildfires breaking out in places where snow is falling a.) nearby, and b.) way further south. Several huge dust storms smothering cities in the U.S., the Middle East and Central Asia, while up near the Arctic Circle, Alaska's largest ever forest fire consumed over 200,000 acres. A record-breaking spring heatwave in southwestern U.S. combined with incredibly destructive wildfires to San Diego into a warzone. 150,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes as multiple 'fire-nadoes' torched suburbs.

Unbelievable quantities of hail were dumped in tropical Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as across the U.S., while record-breaking rainfall led to flooding in many places throughout the U.S., the Middle East, southern China, Africa, and Europe. Spectacular electrical storms swept across the U.S. and Europe, while over 3,000 occurred in the Balkans following the worst flooding since record-keeping began, and a horrific 'double-landslide' in Afghanistan buried 2,700 people alive.

Notable mass fish kills happened in New Jersey, Los Angeles and Texas, while ice was still floating on the Great Lakes despite a spring heatwave. Three feet of snow hit Denver despite massive wildfires breaking out elsewhere in the Rockies. Two tornadoes touched down in Ukraine, two days apart, and a number of massive sinkholes opened up, including one that nearly swallowed traffic on a busy street in Russia.

Connecting the dots...

Have proponents of man-made global warming been proven correct?

Or is something else, something much bigger, happening on our planet?

While mainstream science claims the phenomena covered in this video series are unrelated, they in fact appear to stem from a single common cause.

In times past, people understood that the human mind and states of collective human experience influence cosmic and earthly phenomena.

Historical records reveal a strong correlation between periods of authoritarian oppression with catastrophic and cosmically-induced natural disasters.

Signs of the Times in April 2014

The fourth installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during April 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

Highlights this month include: wildfires breaking out in places where it subsequently snowed, the largest tornado outbreak of the season in the U.S., the mother of all sinkholes (or was it a landslide?) opening up in downtown Baltimore... and a new one for the record books: the highest number of strong earthquakes recorded globally for one month.

Signs of the Times in March 2014

The third installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during March 2014, connecting the dots between planetary upheaval, social upheaval, and 'cosmic weather' in the form of meteor fireball activity.

The month opened with wild waves hitting the West coast of both the U.S. and Europe, while a string of strong earthquakes 'ripped' the whole length of the Ring of Fire along the Americas. The so-called 'Polar Vortex' returned as much of North America was again plunged into a deep freeze in what seemed like the winter that would never end. Despite suffering both drought and wildfires in February, Washington state was hit with a deluge in March that caused a devastating landslide and claimed 20 lives.

Several serious explosions in apartment complexes occurred in both the U.S. and Europe. Ruptured gas pipelines are assumed to be the cause, but officially they remain unexplained. Interestingly, one of the month's many large urban environment sinkholes opened right outside the Harlem explosion that killed 8, and investigators found unusually high levels of natural methane gas in soil samples from the scene, suggesting localized methane outgassing may have played a role in the buildings' sudden obliteration.

Extreme drought was blamed for a massive die-off of animals in Colombia, yet there was record flooding in neighboring Bolivia. California somehow experienced record drought, record rainfall and record wildfires all in the same month... along with a rare tornado that damaged homes. The weird 'winter wildfire' season continued, with hundreds of wildfires breaking out across the U.S., even as the country was plunged into another deep freeze and battered with heavy rainfall from strong storms. Meanwhile a once rare event, but now occurring several times annually, saw another large tornado hit northern Italy on 23 March.

As meteor fireballs lit up the night sky in Canada, Korea and Central Europe, rare hailstorms hit the Middle East, India and South China, and high drama continued in Ukraine as Crimeans told Obama what they thought of the idea of joining the Western empire by voting to rejoin Russia instead.

In what could well be the most incredible High Strangeness event of the year, an entire commercial plane carrying over 200 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing apparently vanished into thin air. Despite many false leads into what might have happened, to date there is no evidence of the plane having crashed or been hijacked...

Signs of the Times in February 2014

The following video contains footage of some of the extreme weather, fireballs and seismic activity from around the world in February. Think the weather's crazy where you live? Check out what's happening elsewhere...

January's 'polar vortex' returned to bury most of the US in snow... despite a record number of 'winter wildfires' breaking out as far north as Oregon.

Mount Sinabung in Indonesia erupted spectacularly... then a string of volcanoes followed the ensuing pyroclastic cloud down the mountain, while another major volcanic eruption occurred in Ecuador.

Severe flooding, tidal surges and hurricane force winds hit Western Europe, while Eastern Europe was hit by heavy snow and ice-storms.

A wildfire broke out in Wales between winter storms... as Atlanta, Georgia was knocked out by snow.

There were record snowfalls in Iran and Tokyo, more 'strange sky sounds' and the Great Lakes almost completely froze over.

A waterspout was filmed off the Australian coast, a major heatwave hit Brazil, and sinkholes opened up all over UK...

Is this normal?!

SOTT Summary, January 2014: High Strangeness, Fire in the Sky, Earth Changes

Jesus light


Signs of the Times in January 2014

The first in a new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during the past month. From 'strange lights' in the skies to extreme weather events, from geological upheaval in the form of volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, landslides and earthquakes to loud booms rattling communities and meteor fireballs turning night into day, the Big Blue Marble is rocking and rolling!

High Strangeness

Some of the highlights in January 2014 include bizarre apparitions of 'UFOs'. Many explain away strange lights in the sky as 'Chinese lanterns' or 'optical illusions' from refractions of man-made or natural light sources in the atmosphere. Some of these apparitions may well be down to such things, but are all of them? Certainly, people making hoax videos with free CGI software have far too much time on their hands, but not everyone is able or willing to do that.

Fire in the Sky

Then there's that other subset of 'strange lights in the sky': meteor fireballs. Distinct in appearance from the largely stationary 'UFO lights', fireballs generally leave a brief 'flash' and trail in the night sky, illuminating the ground for miles around. But as you'll see, several in January appeared to move very slowly, and some were filmed during the daytime. Depending on the size, trajectory and other variables of an incoming space rock, its fragmentation in the upper atmosphere may also produce an audible boom, or series of booms. Something else to keep in mind, however, is that many of these 'mystery booms' being reported across the U.S. and elsewhere may be related to increased seismic activity...

Earth Changes

...which brings us to 'Earth Changes'. More 'long-dormant' volcanoes woke up along the Pacific Ring of Fire last month, another strong earthquake hit New Zealand, wildfires raged in record-breaking heat across Australia and a sinkhole swallowed a whole neighbourhood in Brazil. In the northern hemisphere, it was so cold in Norway that seawater froze, trapping shoals of fish inside the frozen ice... and yet it was apparently also so 'hot' that wildfires broke out near the Arctic Circle. While a succession of hurricane-force storms drenched the UK and Western Europe with giant waves and record flooding, cold temperature and snowfall records over 100 years old were broken across the U.S. as a 'polar vortex' gripped the entire Eastern half of the nation in ice age conditions.

Environmental upheaval, signs in the heavens, wars and rumors of wars, social revolution... it's nothing the planet hasn't seen before, but it's also something new to modern civilization. As the ancient Chinese put it, we certainly appear to be living in 'interesting times'...

Signs of 'Earth Changes' in 2013

The following SOTT.net video looks back at some of the environmental upheaval from around the world in 2013.

Seemingly more destructive, chaotic and turbulent than ever before, last year we witnessed extreme temperatures, widespread flooding, tornadoes appearing when and where they shouldn't, countless volcanic eruptions, superstorms, sinkholes swallowing cars, homes and people, record snowfalls, ongoing mass animal deaths...

...and more and more such events seem to be taking place with each passing month. The frequency and intensity of these weather and geological anomalies strongly suggest that major changes are afoot on our planet.

The question is: what is it all leading up to?

For years, SOTT.net has been sharing information about how Ice Ages begin, and what typically happens beforehand. The message coming through these 'signs' seems pretty loud and clear to us: 'Winter is coming'... perhaps even sometime this year.

High Strangeness: SOTT Summary of UFOs and other paranormal stuff in 2013

Signs of 'High Strangeness' in 2013

Organized by month, the following video compilation is a collection of video footage showing just some instances of 'high strangeness' - UFOs, 'lights in the sky', strange cloud formations - from around the world in 2013.

Could some, many, or even most of these apparitions be explained by way of lens flare, other common optical illusions, or video fakery?... possibly. But when we take into account the considerable historical research into the paranormal, particularly that carried out by dedicated 'mainstream' researchers, whose skepticism motivated them to seek 'rational answers' for the hundred of thousands of reports that have been made over many decades, we come to the conclusion, as they have done, that there is a reality to these phenomena and that it closely interpenetrates humanity's 'consensus reality'.
