"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."

ZETATALK

 

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] http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/30/bitter-cold-records-broken-in-alaska 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] http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Canada+Arctic+cracks+spec... 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] http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=80752&src=iot... 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.

Historic California wildfire continues to grow

"The attempt of the latest conspiracy theory to claim that the latest California fires in LA were incited by satellite microwave weapons is absurd, an attempt once again to claim, as we have stated, anything but Nibiru is the cause. Boy Scouts learn that to start a fire from kindling, one should blow gently on the small flame. This is because a source of oxygen is needed, and the constant winds provided by the daily Earth wobble bring that to LA. Do fires leap over spots, leaving them untouched to start on the other side? This is well known to firemen, who damp out sparks to prevent such propagation from a spark traveling in the wind."

"16 December, 2017. California wildfire rages as 3rd largest recorded in state

Data source: California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection data [2]

A raging California wildfire on Saturday became the state's third largest blaze on record, with more devastation possible from a resurgence of the harsh winds that have fueled the deadly fire's growth.

The so-called Thomas Fire has destroyed more than 1,000 structures, including about 750 homes, in coastal communities in Southern California since erupting on Dec. 4, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said in a statement.

The vast landscape charred by the blaze, which is centered less than 100 miles (161 km) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, reached 259,000 acres (104,813 hectares) early on Saturday, surpassing the 257,314 acres (104,131 hectares) destroyed by California's Rim Fire in 2013, authorities said. The Rim Fire had been the third-largest blaze on record in the state." [5]

Strong wind is a significant cause of the current historical forest fires:

Southern California has felt yellow wind, orange wind, and red wind. But never purple wind. Until now. The colour-coded system showing the expected strength of the winds driving the region’s fierce wildfires has reached uncharted territory, pushing past red, which means “high” into the colour that means “extreme.” “The forecast for tomorrow is purple,” said Ken Pimlott, director at the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “We’ve never used purple before.”" [4]

Weather anomalies are spreading across the world: Coldest summer for 100 years in Queensland, Australia, Earliest ice formation in 71 years on the Han River, South Korea, 3.5 meters of snow in Germany

The weather is going crazy around the world, breaking almost every week a new extreme event record. Here three examples of weather anomalies recorded these days around the world:

More than 1.5 meters of fresh snow and 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) of snow accumulation were recorded on The Brocken, also known as the Blocksberg, the highest peak of the Harz mountain range and also the highest peak of Northern Germany culminating at 1,141 metres (3,743 ft):

The next event is actually good news for the next winter olympics – although they are still far away. After five days of extreme cold weather, ice has formed on the Han River in Seoul, South Korea.

And this ICE is the first ice formation on the river before Dec. 15 in 71 years. Last time such a phenomenon occurred was on December 12, 1946.

While Finally, normally very hot, the current summer in Queensland, Australia breaks record lows with temperatures dropping to 11 degrees Celsius below average, which is, even for forecasters, a “very unusual” phenomenon. Mount Isa had its lowest overnight December temperate ever on record at 12 degrees Celsius – 11C degrees below average. Burketown had a minimum of 17.7C which was the lowest they’d seen up there since 1920, but that was eclipsed today with 16C, and that’s the coldest December morning since 1907. Richmond yesterday was 11.8C which was the lowest there in December since 1909. And of course the reason behind this anomaly is unknown!

I would just like to add videos about some other strange weather events going on these last few days:

Aerial footage captured images of the Chilean village of Villa Santa Lucia buried beneath a thick layer of mud on Saturday, following a deadly landslide which killed at least five people:

Italy: helicopters ferry flood victims to safety

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/12/12/italy-helicopters-ferry-flo...

Italian firefighters used helicopters and rubber dinghies to evacuate stranded residents of a town in the northern region of Emilia Romagna that flooded when waters overran earthen dikes.

Video provided by firefighters Tuesday shows houses under water after the Enza River flooded its reinforced banks in the town of Lentigione. The news agency ANSA said about 1,000 people were evacuated, but a woman who answered the phone at the city hall was unable to confirm the numbers.

Firefighters also rescued three people and a dog with a rubber dinghy from the town of Colorno when the Parma river flooded.

Heavy rain and snow fall has hampered travel in stretches of northern Italy, with trains severely delayed between the coastal city of Genoa and Milan.

Giant smoke-generated mushroom cloud above California mountains causes huge updraft and threatens to spread wildfires even further as devastated area is now larger than NYC and Boston COMBINED

  • The Pyrocumulus cloud, which resembled an erupting volcano or a nuclear bomb, was seen above the San Ynez Mountains of western Ventura County in the Los Padres National Forest, near Santa Barbara
  • The weather phenomenon, also known as a fire cloud, stretched up almost 30,000 feet high
  •  Eric Boldt, a forecaster with the National Weather Service, said it's similar to a thunderstorm and could be responsible for helping spread the Thomas Wildfire
  • On Sunday, the Calfire grew 50,000 acres to 230,000 acres. It is now the fifth worst fire in Californian history
  • Thousands of firefighters were battling the blaze on Monday as it crept relentlessly up the Pacific coast and forced new evacuations 

An ominous mushroom cloud was spotted above California Monday as one of the most destructive wildfires in the state's history crept relentlessly up the Pacific coast.

The weather phenomenon, which resembled an erupting volcano or a nuclear bomb, was seen above the San Ynez Mountains of western Ventura County in the Los Padres National Forest, near Santa Barbara.

The billowing Pyrocumulus cloud, also known as a fire cloud, stretched up almost 30,000 feet high.

Eric Boldt, a forecaster with the National Weather Service office in Oxnard, told San Francisco Gate that the cloud was created by similar forced to a thunderstorm - and its strong winds could be responsible for helping spread the Thomas Wildfire on Sunday as Calfire grew 50,000 acres to 230,000 acres. It is now the fifth worst fire in Californian history.

'When we see these clouds billowing so tall, it's the same mechanisms that are happening with a thunderstorm,' he said. 

'You're causing updrafts and air that's pushing the smoke higher. It creates its own wind. If it starts to spin, that's where you can get more wind and fast-moving progression of the fire. It can become a dangerous situation for firefighters.'

Thousands of firefighters were battling the blaze on Monday as it crept relentlessly up the Pacific coast and forced new evacuations.

As a wildfire near Los Angeles was brought under control, fire crews were being redeployed to battle the Thomas Fire northwest of America's second-largest city.

Fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters were assisting nearly 6,400 firefighters trying to keep the Thomas Fire away from beachfront towns south of the historic city of Santa Barbara, the California Fire Department (Cal Fire) said.

Here’s how rare it is to have large wildfires in December in California.

Here’s how rare it is to have large wildfires in December in California

PUBLISHED: December 6, 2017 at 1:49 pm | UPDATED: December 6, 2017 at 3:50 pm

There are at least six active wildfires burning in Southern California right now.  That’s nearly the total of all large December wildfires from 2000 to 2015, according to Cal Fire statistics.

The map below shows active fires as of noon, Dec. 6.

Current California fires

If you look at the statistics below, they show a mere seven California fires that burned more than 300 acres when totaling December numbers from 2000 to 2015.  The second lowest months were January and February with 11 such wildfires.

July had the most fires between 2000 and 2015 with a total of 313.

Of the seven fires in December from 2000 to 2015, four were in Southern California and two were in Ventura County.

The total acres burned in those seven fires was 21,090. The fire burning right now in Ventura County, called the Thomas fire, is estimated to have already burned 65,000 acres – almost three times the acreage of the other December fires. The previous largest fire in December was the Shekell fire in Ventura which burned 13,600 acres in 2006.

Even before the start of this week’s fires, this year was going down as the most destructive wildfire season in California history, state officials said.

From Jan. 1 to Dec. 3, there were 6,762 fires that destroyed 505,391 acres. That’s 43 percent more events for the same time period last year, when 244,297 acres were destroyed, according to Cal Fire.

“Fuel. Ignition. Meteorology. Each component of the formula are off the charts this year,” said Bill Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “When all three elements in the equation are supersized, you’re set up for apocalyptic conditions.”

California is not alone in feeling the pain. In the U.S. Forest Service’s 2017 briefing to Congress in October the agency said that the fire season was the most costly across the nation.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said, “As wildfire costs exceed $2 billion, I appreciate those in Congress who recognize this funding issue and are working to make a permanent fix that allows us to manage our forests preemptively. While we can’t stop these wildfires, we know we can be prepared in a much better way.”

Wildfire suppression for the Forest Service costs for the fiscal year exceeded $2 billion, making it the most expensive year on record.

Evacuation orders issued for nearly 200k as Los Angeles fires rage

The fast-moving brush fire started around 5am local time on Wednesday near the Getty Center. At 7:30am, authorities ordered residents living south of Mulholland Drive, east of the 405, north of Sunset Boulevard, and west of Roscomare Road to evacuate their homes.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Skirball Fire has led to the evacuations of 700 homes, one apartment building and an elementary school in the city’s Sepulveda Pass. The brush fire has charred 475 acres and is 5 percent contained.The number of people affected has reached 46,000. More than 300 personnel from the Los Angeles Fire Department are on the scene and are being supported by the Los Angeles County Fire Department, LAPD and the Angeles National Forest and CalFire, officials said during a Wednesday afternoon news conference.

Four structures have been destroyed, and 11 damaged, all of which were residential, authorities told reporters. There have been no reported injuries.

The National Weather Service has extended a Red Flag Warning across much of the Southern California region through Saturday.

The Thomas, Creek and Rye Fires continue to wreaking havoc in Southern California, as authorities and firefighters scramble to contain the rapidly moving blazes.

The Thomas Fire, which started at around 6:30pm Monday, is considered a wildfire, and was the first of the three to ignite. Located 60 miles (97km) northwest of Los Angeles in Ventura County, that fire spread from 500 acres Monday night to 50,000 acres the following morning.

The Creek Fire was the second blaze to erupt. The wildfire started at 4am Tuesday and rapidly spread in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest, located above the neighborhood of Sylmar in the San Fernando Valley.

It has now burned through 11,377 acres, and is five percent contained, Garcetti said in a Wednesday afternoon press conference.

The Creek Fire has destroyed 11 homes and injured two firefighters, KTLA reported.

A fast-moving two-alarm brush fire, dubbed the Rye Fire, led to the closure of a portion of the Interstate 5 highway. The fire is burning in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles (48km) north of Los Angeles, according to KABC.

Freak Warm Spell Surges Temperatures 50+ Degrees Above Average in Greenland



image

Well-above average temperatures pooled in the Arctic on Nov. 29. The white line separates sub-freezing air to the north and air that is above freezing to the south.

At a Glance

  • A freak warm spell sent temperatures soaring in Greenland Wednesday.
  • Temperatures soared above the freezing mark as far north as northwest Greenland.
  • Freak Arctic above-freezing warm spells also occurred in November and December 2016.

Temperatures skyrocketed above freezing in parts of northern Greenland on Wednesday as a surge of warm air from the Atlantic poured northward. 

A high temperature of 4.7 degrees Celsius, roughly 40 degrees Fahrenheit, was reported Wednesday at Qaanaaq Airport, along the far northwest coast of Greenland at a latitude of about 77.5 degrees north, about 750 miles north of the Arctic Circle.


image

Maximum temperatures (degrees Celsius) on Nov. 29, 2017. The red arrow denotes Qaanaaq Airport. Parts of northwest Greenland rose above freezing thanks to strong low pressure over northern Canada and warmer-than-average ocean temperatures to the South.
(OGIMET)

That equates to temperatures roughly 50 degrees above average in northern Greenland for late November, where temperatures are usually in the minus 20s and minus 30s Fahrenheit. 

(MORE: Parts of Siberia were Colder Than Minus 60 Degrees Fahrenheit, and ...)

This tongue of warmer air arrived by means of strong southerly winds sandwiched between a strong low pressure system located over northern Canada and a strong high pressure system located near east-central Canada. 


image

Warm temperatures from the ocean and favorable winds aided the near-freezing temperatures as far north as northern Greenland.

Also contributing to the warmth were ocean temperatures 6-10 degrees above average between southern Greenland and adjacent portions of eastern Canada. 

A northward extension of ice-free water in Baffin Bay, not that atypical for late November, extended along Greenland's west coast to the south of Qaanaaq, according to an analysis by the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

As strange as this sounds, last November and again last December, near or above-freezing air surged as far north as the North Pole.

Witnesses describe seeing ‘wall of flames’ along highway 401

 
The flames were seen shooting up to 40 feet into the sky causing a huge distraction for motorists.

The 401 had to be shut down in both directions in Cambridge on Tuesday night following a grass fire that officials say burned out of control at one point.

Witnesses describe seeing a ‘wall of flames’ along the 401 around 6 p.m.

The fire started in the area of industrial road and McGovern Road, just south of highway 401 and west of Hespeler Road.

It began to encroach onto the highway prompting Ontario Provincial Police to shut down the 401 between Shantz Hill Road and Hespeler Road.

About 25 firefighters from three stations responded alongside Waterloo Regional Police and OPP.
