Wobble Sloshing


"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes, switching about from drought to deluge, would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date. Our early warnings spoke to the issue of global heating from the core outward, hardly Global Warming, a surface or atmospheric issue, but caused by consternation in the core. Affected by the approach of Planet X, which was by then starting to zoom rapidly toward the inner solar system for its periodic passage, the core was churning, melting the permafrost and glaciers and riling up volcanoes. When the passage did not occur as expected in 2003 because Planet X had stalled in the inner solar system, we explained the increasing weather irregularities in the context of the global wobble that had ensued - weather wobbles where the Earth is suddenly forced under air masses, churning them. This evolved by 2005 into a looping jet stream, loops breaking away and turning like a tornado to affect the air masses underneath. Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, droughts had become more intractable and deluges positively frightening, temperature swings bringing snow in summer in the tropics and searing heat in Artic regions, with the violence of storms increasing in number and ferocity."



From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for February 4, 2012:


The wobble seems to have changed, as the temperature in Europe suddenly plunged after being like an early Spring, Alaska has its coldest temps ever while the US and much of Canada is having an extremely mild winter. India went from fatal cold spell to balmy again. Has the Earth changed position vs a vs Planet X to cause this? [and from another] Bitter cold records broken in Alaska - all time coldest record nearly broken, but Murphy's Law intervenes [Jan 30] Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment. While the continental USA has a mild winter and has set a number of high temperature records in the last week and pundits ponder whether they will be blaming the dreaded "global warming" for those temperatures, Alaska and Canada have been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures on record during the last week.

There has been no change in the wobble pattern, the wobble has merely become more severe. Nancy noted a Figure 8 format when the Earth wobble first became noticeable, in early 2005, after Planet X moved into the inner solar system at the end of 2003. The Figure 8 shifted along to the east a bit on the globe between 2005 and 2009, (the last time Nancy took its measure) as Planet X came closer to the Earth, encountering the magnetic N Pole with a violent push earlier in the day. But the pattern of the Figure 8 remained essentially the same. So what changed recently that the weather patterns became noticeably different in late January, 2012?

The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.

The next loop of the Figure 8 swings the globe so that the N Pole moves in the other direction, putting the globe again at a tilt but this time in the other direction. This tilt is discernable in weather maps of Europe, again along a diagonal line. Depending upon air pressure and temperature differences, the weather on either side of this diagonal line may be suddenly warm or suddenly cold. The tilt and diagonal line lingers to affect much of the US and Canada, but the Figure 8 changes at this point to be an up and down motion, pulling the geographic N Pole south so the US is experiencing a warmer than expected winter under a stronger Sun. Then the cycle repeats, with the magnetic N Pole of Earth pushed violently away again as the Sun is positioned over the Pacific.


From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 6, 2013:


Would the Zetas be able to let us know what is causing the early break-up of the Arctic Ice, the ice seems to have taken on a swirling pattern at the same time, would this be wobble related? [and from another] The ice in Canada’s western Arctic ripped open in a massive “fracturing event” this spring that spread like a wave across 1,000 kilometres of the Beaufort Sea. Huge leads of water – some more than 500 kilometres long and as much as 70 kilometres across – opened up from Alaska to Canada’s Arctic islands as the massive ice sheet cracked as it was pushed around by strong winds and currents. It took just seven days for the fractures to progress across the entire area from west to east. [and from another] A high-pressure weather system was parked over the region, producing warmer temperatures and winds that flowed in a southwesterly direction. That fueled the Beaufort Gyre, a wind-driven ocean current that flows clockwise. The gyre was the key force pulling pieces of ice west past Point Barrow, the northern nub of Alaska that protrudes into the Beaufort Sea.

The Figure 8 formed by the N Pole during the daily Earth wobble has shifted somewhat to the East, due to Planet X positioned more to the right of the Earth during its approach. This was anticipated, and well described in ZetaTalk, the Earth crowding to the left in the cup to escape the approach of Planet X, so the angle between these two planets would change slightly. This shift of the Figure 8 to the East is due to the push against the Earth’s magnetic N Pole occurring sooner each day than prior. Thus instead of occurring when the Sun is high over the Pacific, over New Zealand, it is now occurring when the Sun is high over Alaska. All the wobble points have shifted eastward accordingly.

This has brought a lingering Winter to the western US, and a changed sloshing pattern to the Arctic waters. Instead of Pacific waters being pushed through the Bering Straits into the Arctic when the polar push occurs, the wobble is swinging the Arctic to the right, and then later to the left, creating a circular motion in the waters trapped in the Arctic. Since the Earth rotates counterclockwise, the motion also takes this path. This is yet another piece of evidence that the establishment is hard pressed to explain. They are attempting to ascribe this to high pressure and wind, all of which are not new to the Arctic, but this circular early breakup of ice in the Arctic is new.

Death Valley Breaks Record for Hottest Month Ever in the US

July temperatures in Death Valley have incinerated previous records.

With an average daily high temperature of 107.4 degrees Fahrenheit (41.9 degrees Celsius), July was the valley's hottest month on record, blazing through the former record of 107.2 degrees F (41.8 degrees C) set in 1917, the National Weather Service's Las Vegas Forecast Office (NWS Las Vegas) wrote Aug. 2 in a tweet.

Temperatures in Death Valley in July blazed into the record books not only as the hottest month in the desert valley in eastern California but also as the hottest month ever recorded in the United States, according to NWS Las Vegas. [Hell on Earth: Image Tour of Death Valley

During July, temperatures were at their lowest at around 5 a.m. local time, averaging about 95 degrees F (35 degrees C), Death Valley National Park representatives wrote in a Facebook post on Aug. 3.

"This is an extreme place to live and visit in the summer, especially this past month," they said.

A photo shared in the post showed a National Park Service (NPS) official posing next to the Furnace Creek Visitor Center in the park, leaning against a sign displaying a local temperature of 124 degrees F (51.1 degrees C).

Death Valley's highest temperatures during July were 127 degrees F (52.8 degrees C) on July 7; 126 degrees F (52.2 degrees C) on July 8; and 125 degrees F (51.7 degrees C) on July 31, according to daily temperature reports compiled by the National Weather Service, The Washington Post reported.

A combination of geological factors — including its low elevation and the presence of surrounding mountains that block cooling moisture — trap and fuel the baking heat that develops during summer in Death Valley.

Death Valley holds the record for the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth — 134 degrees F (56.7 degrees C) on July 10, 2013, which was part of a five-day heat wave during which temperatures hovered at 129 degrees F (53.9 degrees C) or more, the NPS reported.

Death Valley isn't the only place where things are heating up — global average temperatures have been on the rise for years. 2016 was the hottest year on record for the third consecutive year, and a forecast for August, September and October 2017 predicts more warmer-than-average temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere, according to a report released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Flood situation worsens in Bihar, 10m hit


The toll in Bihar floods rose to 153 on while the number of those marooned in 17 districts of the state crossed the 10 million mark.

Meanwhile, as many as 500 people have died and millions have been affected by monsoon floods in northeastern states and Uttar Pradesh, officials said Saturday.

Authorities sought military help in two districts of northern Uttar Pradesh state after heavy rain left hundreds of villages marooned.

As many as 33 out of 75 districts in the state are reeling from floods that have left 55 people dead. “We have sought army’s help to reach out to the affected people,” T P Gupta, a senior official from the state’s disaster management authority, said.

Nearly 100,000 people have been moved to shelters, with authorities estimating another two million have been hit by the deluge.

In Bihar the death toll reached 153. Nearly 400,000 people have sought shelter in relief camps and an estimated 10 million have been affected by one of the state’s worst floods since 2008.

Anirudh Kumar, the state’s top disaster management agency official, said more than 5,000 emergency workers, including 2,000 soldiers were supporting relief and rescue operations.

Araria district accounted for 30 deaths, West Champaran 23, Sitamarhi 13, Madhubani 8 and Katihar 7. As many as 11 each have died in Kisanganj, East Champaran and Supual and 9 each in Purnea and Madhepura.

Around 10.08 million people have been hit by floods in 17 districts and 1,688 panchayats, he said. Saran was included in the list of affected areas on Friday, taking number of districts under water to 17, Kumar said.

Further east, at least 60 people have died in floods that hit Asom a second time in less than four months and nearly 425,000 remain in relief camps.

As many as 225 animals have died in the Kaziranga National Park in Asom, park officials said. As of Saturday, 30 per cent of the park was still inundated.

Meanwhile, rain in the national capital brought the mercury down by nine degrees Celsius with the maximum temperature recorded at 29.6 degrees Celsius, four notches below the season’s average.

Astonishing figures:16 million people affected by floods in Nepal, Bangladesh and India: Nepal claimed at least 128 lives and 33 people missing

A humanitarian crisis is unfolding across large areas in South Asia, with more than 16 million people affected by monsoon floods in Nepal, Bangladesh and India.
“This is fast becoming one of the most serious humanitarian crises this region has seen in many years and urgent action is needed to meet the growing needs of millions of people affected by these devastating floods,” said Martin Faller, Deputy Regional Director for Asia Pacific, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
“Millions of people across Nepal, Bangladesh and India face severe food shortages and disease caused by polluted flood waters,” Mr Faller said.
Flood levels have already reached record highs in Bangladesh, according to local authorities. Flooding of major rivers such as the Jamuna has surpassed levels set in 1988 – the deadliest floods the country has ever faced.
“More than one third of Bangladesh and Nepal have been flooded and we fear the humanitarian crisis will get worse in the days and weeks ahead,” Mr Faller said.
In Nepal, many areas remain cut off after the most recent destructive floods and landslides, on 11 and 12 August. Villages and communities are stranded without food, water and electricity.
“This tragic flooding in Nepal has claimed at least 128 lives and 33 people are still missing,” said Dev Ratna Dhakhwa, Secretary General, Nepal Red Cross Society.
“More than 500 Nepal Red Cross volunteers are racing aid to people, including tarpaulins for temporary shelter, food and water. Food crops have been wiped out by the floods in Nepal’s major farming and agricultural lands in the south of the country. We fear that this destruction will lead to severe food shortages,” Mr Dhakhwa added.
In Bangladesh, floods are likely to get much worse as swollen rivers from India pour into the low-lying and densely populated areas in the north and centre of the country. Over 3.9 million people have been affected by the rising flood waters.
In India over 11 million people are affected by floods in four states across the north of the country. India’s meteorological department is forecasting more heavy rain for the region in the coming days.
Volunteers from Indian Red Cross and Bangladesh Red Crescent are working non-stop alongside local authorities to help their communities be safe and prepare for worsening floods.

Biblical amounts of rain: Nearly 3 times the monthly ave 184mm or almost 7 inches drench Bangalore overnight the highest recorded amount ever

When Bengalore went to sleep on Monday night, the city had received 44.8mm of rain for August. When it woke up on Tuesday morning, that figure had risen by 128.7mm - the highest rainfall in a day since 1890, according to the Met department.
It made up nearly 300% of the rain expected over the entire month, pouring down on the city from 11pm on Monday to 4am on Tuesday.
The highest-ever rainfall recorded in the city in a day was on August 27, 1890, when Bengalore received 162.1mm of rain, the monthly ave for Sept August is 62.8 mm.
According to the Karnataka State Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSDMC), that record was broken on Tuesday.
It said the city received 184mm of rain since Monday night, the highest being recorded in Bilekahalli. The overnight rain flooded several parts of the city, submerging parking lots and entire road stretches, and snapped power in vast swathes since the early hours of Tuesday.
The Yediyur lake breached a retaining wall, while foam from the Bellandur lake flowed to neighbouring localities.
Over 40 rescue boats came out in ST Bed area of Koramangala, while the fire department was called to flush out water from apartments in HSR Layout, Koramangala, Jayanagar and Bannerghatta Road, among other areas.
At least 26 trees were uprooted.
Wildlife volunteers received panic calls as snakes entered homes in Rajarajeshwari Nagar, JP Nagar, Nagarabhavi, Thanisandra, Uttarahalli and Puttenahalli.

Two teenagers among five dead in storms in Poland

Power was cut to around half a million homes and businesses as violent winds downed trees and ripped off roofsPower was cut to around half a million homes and businesses as violent winds downed trees and ripped off roofs

Five people, including two Girl Guides, have died in freak accidents as violent storms hit Poland amid a heatwave.

The two girls, aged 13 and 14, were crushed by falling trees while sleeping in a tent when a storm hit the campground for Girl Guides and Boy Scouts in the northern village of Suszek.

Another 20 children were said to have been injured.

A woman died when a tree hit her house in the northern village of Konarzyny.

In a nearby village, a man sleeping in a tent also perished after being hit by a tree brought down by high winds.

Authorities in the same region also confirmed the death of a fifth victim, a 48-year-old man, crushed by a tree.

A total of 28 people were reported injured.

Power was cut to around half a million homes and businesses as violent winds downed trees and ripped off roofs in northern and southern regions.

An unusual heatwave saw peak temperatures soar to the high-30s Celsius across Poland in recent days.

However, milder weather is expected this weekend when the mercury is forecast to dip to the mid-20s in most regions.

How can you imagine a fire on Greenland as three-quarters of the island is covered by a permanent ice sheet, and permafrost is found on most of the rest of the island. This is why it is very unusual, and possibly unprecedented, that two wildfires are burning on the giant island.

The fires are near Sisimiut in Western Greenland north of the Arctic Circle. They were first spotted from an airplane on August 3, 2017.

These fires appear to be peatland fires, as there are low grass, some shrub, and lots of rocks on the western edge of the Greenland Ice Sheet. They are likely occurring in areas of degraded permafrost.

Fognado! Massive cloud of mist suddenly engulfs Californian beach, blotting out the sun, sending sand and umbrellas flying

  • The tidal wave of fog cascaded over Natural Bridges Beach in Santa Cruz
  • The dense cloud blocks out the light and the wind whip up into a frenzy
  • But it blows over as suddenly as it arrived, leaving sun stream through again

An enormous, menacing cloud of mist suddenly engulfed a Californian beach, blotting out the sun and sending sand and umbrellas flying in what resembled an Armageddon-like nature event. 

The all-engulfing cloud approached with a steely menace on the Natural Bridges Beach in Santa Cruz last Wednesday, blocking out the sun and nudging seabirds into a loud squawking frenzy.

'It was really hot in Santa Cruz, so I went down to Natural Bridges Beach. About five minutes after I sat down, the sky got dark, the wind picked up, and a huge fog cloud rolled in fast,' the unnamed person who recorded the footage said.

'Umbrellas were flying, sand was pelting me in the face and people were quickly leaving the beach. After only a few minutes, the fog cloud passed and the sun came out.' 

In the astonishing video, the enormous cloud blocks out the sun, nudging seabirds into loud squawking action as they suddenly take to the sky and wheel about in the air, investigating this strange new atmosphere.

But despite the menacing clouds, beach-goers seem relatively unperturbed at the start and continue with their seaside recreation, paddling and playing with balls on the shore.

But the wind then whips-up into a storm-like frenzy and towels flap violently in the gusts.

The all-engulfing cloud approached with a steely menace on the Natural Bridges Beach in Santa Cruz last Wednesday like an avalanche crashing down a mountain

Aug in Europe Swelters Under a Heat Wave Called ‘Lucifer’

In Romania, the police banned heavy traffic on major roads, and trains slowed to a relative crawl.

Animal rights groups in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, urged citizens to place bowls of water outside their buildings and in parks for stray dogs.

High temperatures this summer have brought punishing heat to regions in the United States like the Pacific Northwest — where generations had shunned air-conditioning — reaching as high as 104 in Seattle and 107 in Portland, Ore. In parts of Asia, like Pakistan, a blast of scorching weather this year also had people there reaching for comparisons to hell on earth as records fell.

Continue reading the main story

Experts say it’s all part of a broader trend: Summers are, indeed, getting hotter. Here is what our correspondents across Europe reported about the heat on the Continent.

Sun-kissed Italy has become sun-cursed. With temperatures in recent days regularly rising north of 100 degrees, a nationwide drought leaving rivers and mouths dry and countryside kindling and arsonists combining to ignite the landscape, Italians are, well, boiling.

Farmers are lamenting more than $1 billion in revenue lost to drought and singed fields. Firefighters are busy. Packs of gum are melting in their wrappers.

In Rome, the heat wave has coincided with a meltdown of public services, including public transport. The city’s older residents bunch together in the narrow shade of bus stop signs waiting for buses that are late or out of service.

On trams without air-conditioning, women fanned themselves and children, slicked with sweat, across the aisle.

(In Italy, air-conditioning is viewed, even by doctors in offices without air-conditioning, as a malevolent, unnatural force responsible for stiff necks, respiratory ailments and anything else not easily diagnosable. Taxi drivers refuse to turn it on as a public health service.)

In Venice, tourists are cramming with their suitcases onto the city’s water buses, their arms squeezed clammily together. Tempers are running as high as the temperatures. On a recent afternoon, a water bus driver instructed a woman to carry her suitcase to the lower deck.

“I can’t,” the woman, visibly sweating, snapped. “I’m old!”

Italians who can do it have escaped to the seaside, where they have summer houses or apartments or spots in camping ports. The beaches on the western coast of Tuscany are packed with Italians wading up to their knees and splashing their shoulders.

On Sunday afternoon, in Castiglione della Pescaia, on the coast of Maremma, the manager of a restaurant apologetically explained that the air-conditioning wasn’t working because the air was too hot to be conditioned.


Trains slow to a crawl

In Romania, two people died from the heat last week — a 45-year-old man working in a field in the northeast part of the country and a 60-year-old man along the Black Sea coast. In Bucharest, the government warned people to stay indoors during the hottest hours.

Trucks and heavy traffic were ordered off the main highways over the weekend. Trains had also been running slower than usual in Romania because of the heat.

But by Sunday, the hottest of the weather had pushed to the south, and only two of Romania’s southernmost counties were still under a “red alert” warning for high temperatures.

In southern Serbia, the heat got so bad that some train tracks warped and service had to be suspended.

In Slovenia, which hugs the eastern edge of the Alps, the ski resort of Vogel saw its first “tropical night” on Wednesday, marking the first time at that altitude (1,500 meters, or about 4,920 feet) that overnight temperatures failed to dip below 68 degrees.


The pain in Spain

About half of Spain was placed under an emergency alert over the weekend because of the heat wave, as forecasts predicted temperatures of up to 111 degrees Fahrenheit (44 degrees Celsius).

In the southern city of Córdoba, the temperature reached almost 113 degrees on Friday afternoon. However, no major incident was reported, and the continuing high temperatures are slightly milder than that experienced in mid-July in Spain, when the temperature reached a record of almost 117 degrees in Córdoba.


Step away from the alcohol

The public health institute in Serbia’s capital offered residents simple instructions for beating the heat:

• Keep wet towels on the windows if you don’t have air-conditioning.

• Avoid physical exertion.

• Avoid alcohol.

No relief at nighttime

The heat wave that hit southeastern France throughout the week increased pollution levels. The authorities also issued safety warnings on proper hydration as thousands of incoming and departing vacationers clogged roads across the region.

Corsica was hit especially hard. Nighttime offered no respite to inhabitants of Marignana, a village on the island where the temperature stayed at nearly 87 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday night into Tuesday.

On Wednesday, France’s national electricity provider announced that energy consumption on the island had reached a record high the previous night.

The French Riviera was not spared either, especially inland. In Puget-Théniers, a village about 25 miles northwest of Nice in the Alpes-Maritimes Department, the national weather forecaster registered a record high of 104 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday.

In several areas of the neighboring Alpes-de-Haute-Provence Department, local authorities prohibited irrigating land, watering lawns or filling up swimming pools between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

In the port of Marseille, a dozen students were hired by the town hall to check in on the city’s older residents by calling them or visiting their homes, a summertime measure that was begun in 2003 after a particularly deadly heat wave.

On Sunday, however, the national weather forecaster lifted its heat-wave warning, as temperatures decrease across the region.


Burning up, literally

Summer means the start of a dangerous dry season for many parts of Europe. In Portugal, a raging forest fire in June killed scores of people, some of whom were trapped in their cars, and forced many to flee their homes. And last month, fires forced the evacuation of over 20,000 in southern France.

Wildfires revisited parts of France this week, burning for days near the town of Palneca, and torching more than 400 acres of forest.

On Friday morning, a wildfire in the southern Greek island of Kythira, southwest of Athens, led to the evacuation of a village and power cuts.

It was contained but flared again on Saturday as the wind picked up, reports said. No homes have been reported damaged and there are no reports of fatalities.

Temperatures were forecast to reach 108 degrees in parts of mainland Greece over the weekend.

Hail as big as tennis balls

Polish officials have been warning of possible infrastructure failures as the country’s electricity demand set a record for a summer morning at 23.82 gigawatts last Tuesday.

At the peak of the heat wave, employers in public administrations in several communes in the east and southeast of Poland ordered their employees to leave work two hours early.

Scorching temperatures also caused dramatic weather breakdowns, including strong storms that brought a whirlwind, as well as hail the size of tennis balls, injuring dozens of people across the country.


What heat wave?

Of course, there were some parts of Europe (London, anyone?) that have escaped the blistering heat.

“There is no heat in Germany. It is a cool 68F in Berlin, and even chillier in Munich. Parts of Austria are being flooded, so there is no heat in the German-speaking world. Reports here are that Spain and Portugal are also burning up.”


“No sweltering in Moscow. Been the coldest summer for years. Today was considered ‘hot,’ but temp only rose to low 70s. Much the same in Baltics, where I was yesterday: Rained solidly.”



Over the past week!

WATCH: Shocking drone footage shows effect of Lucifer heatwave on Europe

SHOCKING drone footage has been released showing the devastating impact of heatwave Lucifer on the Italian Alps, as temperatures soared to over 40 Celsius.

As the heatwave sizzles Europe, the Continent’s ski resorts have been abandoned as their snow melts away under the intense heat.

Eerie drone footage of the Stelio Glacier, which stands at almost 3000 metres above sea level, shows the important summer ski resort reduced to bare granite.

Video captures a vast barren landscape as abandoned cable cars hang above unused as the area is devoid of skiers.

Lucifer has caused at least 11 European countries have issued grim warnings of “dangerous” weather conditions.

A “red alarm”, indicating a potentially deadly risk from the heat, has been issued for popular Italian cities Florence, Rome, Venice and Verona.

Authorities in a raft of holiday destinies popular with British tourists are warning visitors to stay in the shade and carry water at all times.

In Italy, hospitals have seen a 15 per cent spike in emergency admissions from patients suffering from both burns, hearthstone and other heat-related illnesses.

Italian meteorologists have predicted temperatures of around 40C in the capital Rome and several parts of the country until Monday.

The number of Italian cities on the health ministry’s maximum heat alert has now reached 26.

Sardinia and the southern parts of Italy are experiencing temperatures of up to 42C.

With Temperatures in the UK recently struggling to make it past the low 20s, holidaymakers have been warned to take care.

Tourists have been advised to stay in shaded areas while warnings are in place.
