Pictures of change – For the worse

While the effect of human activity on the global climate is hotly debated, physical signs of environmental change are all around us.

Some scientists say an increase in the rate of melting of the world’s glaciers is evidence of global warming.

Argentina’s Upsala Glacier was once the biggest in South America, but it is now disappearing at a rate of 200 metres per year.

Other scientists say its reduction is due to complicated shifts in glacial dynamics and local geology.

Glacial change

American photographer Gary Braasch has been documenting images of environmental change since 1999.The image on the left is from an 1859 etching of the Rhone glacier in Valais, Switzerland, and shows ice filling the valley.

In 2001, the glacier had shrunk by some 2.5km, and its ‘snout’ had shifted about 450 metres higher up.

Rising tides

Some scientists predict that a warmer climate will trigger more violent storms, which will cause increased rates of coastal erosion.This is a section of shoreline at Cape Hatteras in North Carolina in the USA, pictured in 1999 and 2004. The southern United States and Caribbean region were battered by a series of powerful hurricanes last year.

Rising sea levels are also expected to speed up coastal erosion.

Vanishing islands

Other parts of the world could face even more drastic change.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a consortium of several thousand independent scientists, predicts that sea levels could rise by between 9 and 88cm in the next century.

This would threaten low-lying islands such as Tuvalu in the Pacific. These images, taken this year, show the effects of a higher than usual tide.

No snow

As the climate warms up, mountainous regions may experience lower levels of snowfall.This image shows Mount Hood in Oregon at the same time in late summer in 1985 and 2002.

More pests

Tree-eating wood beetles are likely to benefit from a warmer climate and reproduce in ever-increasing numbers.These images show damage to White Spruce trees in Alaska caused by the pests.

Lost city ‘could rewrite history’

_1768109_harappa300.jpg

The city is believed to predate the Harappan civilisation

By BBC News Online’s Tom Housden The remains of what has been described as a huge lost city may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history.

Marine scientists say archaeological remains discovered 36 metres (120 feet) underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India could be over 9,000 years old.

The vast city – which is five miles long and two miles wide – is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.

The site was discovered by chance last year by oceanographers from India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology conducting a survey of pollution.

Using sidescan sonar – which sends a beam of sound waves down to the bottom of the ocean they identified huge geometrical structures at a depth of 120ft.

Debris recovered from the site – including construction material, pottery, sections of walls, beads, sculpture and human bones and teeth has been carbon dated and found to be nearly 9,500 years old.

Lost civilisation

The city is believed to be even older than the ancient Harappan civilisation, which dates back around 4,000 years.

Marine archaeologists have used a technique known as sub-bottom profiling to show that the buildings remains stand on enormous foundations.

The whole model of the origins of civilisation will have to be remade from scratch

Graham Hancock

Author and film-maker Graham Hancock – who has written extensively on the uncovering of ancient civilisations – told BBC News Online that the evidence was compelling:“The [oceanographers] found that they were dealing with two large blocks of apparently man made structures.“Cities on this scale are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia.

“Nothing else on the scale of the underwater cities of Cambay is known. The first cities of the historical period are as far away from these cities as we are today from the pyramids of Egypt,” he said.

Multiple Star Systems Have Planets

182896main_spitzer-20070724-516.jpg

 How many stars does it take to “raise” a planet? In our own solar system, it took only one — our sun. However, new research from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope shows that planets might be forming in systems with as many as four stars.

This artist’s concept illustrates one such quadruple-star system, called HD 98800. The system is still relatively young, at 10 million years old. One of its two pairs of stars is known to be circled by a dusty disk, which contains materials that are thought to clump together to form planets. When Spitzer set its infrared gaze on the disk, it detected gaps. How did the gaps get there? One possible answer is that planets are growing in size and carving out lanes in the dust.

Spitzer found two gaps in the disk. The inner gap is about as far away from its central stars as Mars and the asteroid belt are from our sun. The outer gap is about as far away from its central stars as Jupiter is from the sun.

HD 98800 is located 150 light-years away in the constellation TW Hydrae.

The Government Directs Our Fears

The government programs the masses to be afraid of what they want us to fear. If they have us afraid of terrorist then we are more likely to promote any war against it. If you notice on the chart above; one of the greatest causes of death is smoking related diseases. I have not heard of the government’s war on smoking. I have heard government officials speak of raising the taxes on tobacco products and I also know first hand that Phillip Morris and other tobacco companies reimburse retailers on every pack of cigarettes they sell. So the retailers can keep selling their products cheap enough to keep cigarettes in everyone’s hands. Even on the retailers books they show a high regular retail but they keep their cigarettes on a never ending promotion. How much money does our government make off of theses cigarette companies? Does our government own the cigarette companies indirectly? It is important to realize that our government does not only make money off of taxes and reported funding but they also have companies that perpetually funds their black projects. I believe the government also owns large companies it dumps money into only to reap the profit off of their own funding. This is just a small example of what I believe is going on within our secret government.

The Sun Loses its Spots-The Calm Before The Storm

182956main_sun_latest.jpg 

While sidewalks crackle in the summer heat, NASA scientists are keeping a close eye on the sun. It is almost spotless, a sign that the Sun may have reached solar minimum. Scientists are now watching for the first spot of the new solar cycle to appear. The 11 year long solar cycle is marked by two extremes, solar minimum and solar maximum. Solar minimum is the period of least solar activity in the solar cycle of the sun. During this time sunspot and solar flare activity diminishes, and often does not occur for days at a time.When spots begin to appear on the sun once again, scientists know that the sun is heading into a new season of extreme solar activity. At the cycle’s peak, solar maximum, the sun is continually peppered with spots, solar flares erupt, and the sun hurls billion-ton clouds of electrified gas into space.

Solar maximum is often compared to the hurricane season here on Earth. Violent solar events, like flares and coronal mass ejections, are the hurricanes of space weather. These solar storms are capable of wreaking havoc with satellites, power grids, and radio communication, including the Global Positioning System.

NOAA’s Space Environment Center, Boulder CO, forecasts that the next solar cycle should begin in March 2008 and should peak in late 2011 or mid 2012.

Here is what I think could happen:

  We all know that the Mayan calendar is set to end in the same year of the next solar max peak 2012. There are numerous claims on what it could mean. I for one think the government has already figured this one out. I think it is very possible that we are going to see our first gravitational radiation wave (tsunami). A gravitational wave emitted from our sun that has never been recorded before. It could have the potential of not only carrying an EM pulse that would disable everything and damage our atmosphere but would also cause a gravitational catastrophe. We may be flung into the ether in a split second just like a wave of water would fling you into the air. We may be flung into space or the inner atmosphere depending on the gravitational waves strength and height.We could even see an expansion effect within our own atoms which could literally rip us apart. Either way spells catastrophe for the human race. And lets not forget every peak has its trough slamming us right back into the surface of the Earth. Maybe this is why there are so many underground military installations. This may also be why the present administration wants to keep a foot hold until then by creating a “police state”.

UFO sightings bring town to a standstill

1strafordufoctrs_468x348.jpg

A crowd of 100 stunned stargazers brought a town centre to a standstill when five mysterious UFOs were spotted hovering in the sky.

Drinkers spilled out of pubs, motorists stopped to gawp and camera phones were aimed upwards as the five orbs, in a seeming formation, hovered above Stratford-Upon-Avon for half an hour.

The unidentified flying objects lit up the otherwise clear night sky above Shakespeare’s birthplace in Warwickshire on Saturday.

The strange episode started just after 10.30pm, when the lights were seen hovering slowly over the town before three of them formed a triangular shape with one positioned just to the right.

A few minutes later a fifth came into view travelling towards the others at breakneck speed before slowing down and stopping a short distance away.

Sceptics dismissed the UFOs as nothing more than hot air balloons, fireworks or even lanterns which had broken loose from a local rugby club.

Others, however, claimed the speed and agility of the objects was unlike any known aircraft and said the odd movement, lack of noise and the length of time in the air discounted any man-made explanation.

Tom Hawkes, who captured these amazing images, spotted the lights during his girlfriend Kate Lyall’s birthday at the One Elm pub.

He and the 15 other revellers were in the bar when they spotted some commotion outside.

Tom, 30, said: “We walked outside and there was at that time a growing crowd of about 60 people looking up at something in the sky.

“I saw this light appear, then three others. They came over our heads in formation but then manouvered into different positions.

“Three had formed a triangular shape and one was to the right. Then another one came hurtling towards the rest at what looked like a very fast speed. But as it neared them it suddenly slowed and stopped altogether.

“By this time more people had poured out onto the street. Two pubs had emptied, some people had come out of their houses and drivers slowed their cars.

The objects were there for about half an hour. It was very eerie because they didn’t make any sound and they stayed still before moving slowly beyond the horizon. There were no stars in the sky, just them.

“It was the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever seen and the way in which everyone gathered in the street to watch them reminded me of a scene from Independence Day.”

The extraordinary scenes were also witnessed by some of the staff of the One Elm pub.

Chef Kern Griffiths, 26, said: “I saw five lights, we all thought they were hot air balloons at first because the glowing spheres looked like a burst of flames. But I couldn’t see any outline of the balloon itself and they were travelling far too fast.

“Suddenly someone shouted ‘look’ and there were these bright dots fizzing across the sky.

“It was weird, they way they moved did look alien. Some people reckon they’re fireworks but they were lit up in the sky for far too long, the local rugby club say they were lanterns that blew loose over the weekend but these objects were far too fast and too high up.

“They were unlike any aircraft I’ve seen. It’s a mystery.”

Hillary Potter from The British Earth Aerial Mystery Society (BEAMS) said they were being inundated with similar calls from across the country but said it was rare for such phenomena to be witnessed by so many people.

She said: “Such incidents have been on the increase recently. There are reports at the moment coming in from all over the country.

“We’ve had many reports of people seeing quite large unidentified objects in the skies. It’s not going away, It seems these incidents are becoming more bold.

“People don’t know what to do when they witness such sights and that’s what we’re here for. We take the reports very seriously.”

A Mod Spokesman said: “The MoD does not have any expertise or role in respect of UFOs or flying saucer matters or to the question of the existence of extra terrestrial life forms, about which we remain totally open minded.

“I should add that to date the MoD knows of no evidence which substantiates the existence of these alleged phenomena. The MoD examines any reports of unidentified flying objects it receives solely to establish whether what was seen might have some defence significance.

“Namely whether there is any evidence that the UK air space might have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised foreign military activity.

“Unless there is evidence of a potential threat to the United Kingdom from an external military source, and to date no UFO report has revealed such evidence, we do not attempt to identify the precise nature of each sighting reported to us.

“We believe that rational explanations such as aircraft lights or natural phenomena could be found for them if resources were diverted for this purpose but its not the function of the MoD to provide this kind of aerial identification service.”

Frankie Spray, from Wellesbourne Airfield, just outside Stratford, added: “The lights were nothing to do with us. None of our aircraft fly at night at this time of year.

“It’s very bizarre but I’ve got no explanation as to what the lights were.”

Birmingham Air Space which covers the skies over the town said they had not heard of any unusual activity showing up on the radar.

Nikola Tesla – Saving The Top Secret Government Money

skunkworks-logo.jpg

  The government comes up with a budget usually based on the previous budget they submitted. Ok, now imagine last year NASA had to use a certain engine or fuel to escape the earth’s atmosphere and propel itself to which ever destination it is headed for. What if NASA and the MIC came up with a new technology that is significantly cheaper but did not report that they had such technology? This would free up even more money for black projects. Tesla and other Nazi scientists were believed to have figured out antigravity. If they did and the government developed this technology for space and other expensive ventures they would be able to escape the earth’s atmosphere and arrive at their destination for a fraction of the cost.  This is only one example of how the government could increase their investments into black projects with out anyone even thinking twice. It is already known by just about everyone that the government is 100’s of years ahead of the civilian sector. The government also has most of society believing that people who even speak of anitgravity or time-space distortion must be crazy.
