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.

Severe cold snap grips eastern Turkey as record cold temperatures hit Ardahan, blizzard hampers search for 13 missing

Severe cold snap grips eastern Turkey as record cold temperatures hit Ardahan, blizzard hampers search for 13 missing

Eastern Turkey is under the grip of freezing weather, with some areas seeing snowstorms and piercing temperatures including a record-breaking -40 °C (-40 °F) in the town of Gole, Ardahan, on Sunday, February 9, 2020. Heavy snow and blizzard also caused disruptions in the search operations for 13 missing migrants in Caldiran district on Monday, February 10, feared to have died in the cold.

Residents of Gole town in Ardahan province shivered through a cold Sunday night at -40 °C (-40 °F), a new record for the province which broke the previous one set at -39.8 °C (-39.6 °F) on January 21, 1972, according to the Turkish State Meteorological Service.

Aside from numbing temperatures, snowfall and blizzards cut off access to critical areas, including an area in the Caldiran district, Van province, where 13 migrants were feared to be missing.

Rescuers were sent but snow blocked passages, including in Bachcesaray where 41 people died and two others remain missing due to avalanches.

Van province governor Mehmet Emin Bilmez said crews may only return to work once the condition improves, adding that a road connecting the province to the Catak district was temporarily closed due to threats of more avalanches.

On Monday, February 10, Bilmez reported that 13 migrants are feared frozen to death in Caldiran, near the border with Iran.

"We had phone calls [from relatives of migrants] from Iran, Germany, and Diyarbakir, and these people are believed to have been frozen to death while crossing the border. Even if crews can reach the area, they cannot recover anyone because of storms and blizzards," he said. "The visibility is zero now."

Bilmez also noted that the only way to clear the roads and have access to cut off areas was for the blizzards to stop.

"Unfortunately, such cases of migrant deaths happen in the region. Last year, we found about 100 bodies and only after the snow thawed."

In addition, the governor warned of the risk of avalanche, particularly in Catak district. He also advised the public in rural areas not to leave for towns or Van's central area.

On Monday, the coldest temperatures were 0 °C (32 °F) in Igdir, -4 °C (24.8 °F) in Tunceli, and -10 °C (14 °F) in Adahan.

Other cities in the eastern region also saw heavy snow, with 34 cm (13.4 inches) in Agri and 84 cm (33 inches) in Palandoken of Erzurum.

The meteorological agency said seasonal temperatures are expected to return to normal from Monday night.

A storm-battered Europe with hurricane-force winds and heavy rains, killing at least seven people and causing severe travel disruptions as it moved eastward across the continent Monday and bore down on Germany. After striking Britain and Ireland on Sunday, the storm moved on, leaving a trail of damage including power cuts for tens of thousands of homes across Europe. A woman and her 15-year-old daughter died in Poland after the storm ripped off the roof of a ski rental equipment building in the mountain resort of Bukowina Tatrzanska and sent it hurtling into people standing near a ski lift, police said. Three people also were injured in the incident.

In Sweden, one man drowned after the boat he and another person were sailing in on the southern lake of Fegen capsized. The victim has washed ashore but later died. The other person is still missing, according to the Aftonbladet daily. Two men, one in the north of Slovenia and another in southern England, also died after their cars were hit by falling trees. And in Germany, a driver died after crashing his truck into a trailer parked by workers clearing storm debris off a highway in the southern state of Hesse. Police in the Czech Republic said the storm likely was to blame for a car accident that killed the man driving and injured a woman passenger. Investigators think a tree fell on the car, which skidded off the road and overturned. The number of Czech households without electricity reached 290,000, according to power company CEZ.

Britain, which bore the brunt of the storm on Sunday, was assessing the damage and working to get power restored to 20,000 homes. However, for parts of northern England and Scotland, the respite is set to be brief, with forecasts of blizzards and snow. Many parts of the country were mopping up after a month and a half's rain fell in just 24 hours in some places and rivers burst their banks. Though 360 flood warnings have been removed as the storm moves on, around 75 remain in place across the country. The River Irwell burst its banks in northwest England, prompting authorities to evacuate residents. And in the Scottish town of Hawick, which borders England, a guest house and bistro collapsed into the raging River Teviot.

The British government said it was offering financial compensation through its emergency Bellwin scheme. Under the scheme, local authorities dealing with the storm can apply to have certain costs reimbursed. Transport authorities were also working hard to clear up the mess. Network Rail, which runs the country's rail infrastructure, said thousands of engineers had "battled horrendous conditions" after the storm blew trees, sheds, roofs and even trampolines onto the tracks.

Ferries were operating across the English Channel after being closed down on Sunday, though P and O Ferries said in a tweet that further disruptions were possible. Airlines operating to and from U.K. airports were still being affected by the storm, with more than 100 flights cancelled.

The storm had largely passed through France by midday yesterday, though meteorologists warned that the Mediterranean island of Corsica could later see winds as high as 200 kph (124 mph). Up to 130,000 homes stretching from Brittany, in western France, through Normandy and the northern regions were without power Monday morning.

In Germany, utility companies were also scrambling to restore power to some 50,000 homes in northern Bavaria, where a top wind of over 160 kph (100 mph) was recorded. The storm resulted in a record amount of electricity being fed into the German grid from wind turbines, equivalent to almost 44 nuclear power plants. Train travel across Europe's biggest economy was also severely disrupted, leaving many commuters unable to get to work. The storm, which was dubbed Sabine in Germany, also led to school closures in several cities and regions, including North Rhine-Westphalia state, where several people were injured by falling branches and toppling trees.

An incredible temperature high of 18.3°C (65°F) has been measured in Antarctica! This is possibly the highest temperature in the continent since the last interglacial period!  By Andrej Flis | Global weather | 07 February 2020

Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. But you would be surprised to know, that it has its warm spots too, and one of those just recorded the highest temperature ever measured on the Antarctic continent.

The continent of Antarctica has experienced its warmest temperature on record, reaching 18.3°C (65°F) on the Argentine station Esperanza, situated on the Antarctic peninsula. This reading beats the previous Antarctic record by 0.8°C, which was set in March 2015, measuring 17.5°C (63.5°F), according to the station data. Below is the station report from Ogimet, which shows the maximum temperature recorded.

New Zealand floods: Hundreds evacuated from homes after heavy rainfall
Helicopters help rescue tourists off fjord

Hundreds of people have been evacuated in New Zealand as floods swept through southern parts of the country following heavy rainfall.
Authorities told residents to “not be complacent” and advised them to leave their homes immediately in low-lying areas of Southland due to rising river levels.

Nearly two hundred tourists were also rescued – many by helicopter – from the picturesque fjord of Milford Sound after floods and mudslides swamped roads on the natural attraction.

A state of emergency was declared in Southland, where people in the towns of Gore, Mataura and Wyndham were told to leave their properties early Wednesday morning (local time).

Emergency Management Southland urged people to “go and stay with friends and family on higher ground if possible” or to gather in certain community spaces.

Hamish Walker, the local MP, said authorities warned him they were dealing with a “one in a 100 year flood”.

Aerial footage showed water covering roads and fields, while a high river can be seen rushing past nearby buildings in another video.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Walker says: “It is quite strange. It is actually quite a sunny day.”

Further rainfall is forecast over the coming days, but not the heavy rain that has caused the flooding.

Authorities told Gore residents on Wednesday evening that they could go back to their properties as the Mataura River had gone down after it peaked around midday.
Emergency Management Southland said other evacuated locals would have to wait until Thursday morning to know whether it is safe for them to return home.

Family's Hobart holiday goes from 40C to snow in one weekend

Adrian Van Beek and his family decided to escape the hot Brisbane summer and take a holiday in Hobart but when they arrived, they were hit by opposite extremes.
Hobart's temperatures spiked at 40C last Friday, close to its hottest ever day of 41.8C in 2013.

For their first trip to Hobart, it wasn't what the Van Beek family had in mind.

"We were lost for words," he said. 
 "Our motivation to come down here was that temperatures in Brisbane during summer are hot anyway but excessively hot this year so we thought we'd head south and enjoy the weather down here."
Temperatures of 40C are equally as unseasonal, with an average February high of 22C.
"It was absolutely unexpected," he said.
"I expected it to be cool, but did I expect it to be minus one? No. Did I expect it to be 40C? Absolutely not."

Flooding on Vancouver Island shuts down highways, state of emergency declared in Cowichan Valley

Heavy rainfall across Vancouver Island has caused significant flooding in multiple communities.

The Cowichan Valley Regional District has declared a local state of emergency after intense localized flooding forced evacuations and shut down roads.

Highway 1 between Chemainus and Duncan opened up Saturday just before 11 a.m., after being closed for several hours due to flooding.

The flooding was just south of the Chemainus River Bridge, blocking both directions.

Twenty-three people had to be evacuated in areas of Crofton late Friday night. Evacuations continued on Saturday morning.

“Anytime that residents are displaced from their homes, it’s an emergency,” said Kris Schumacher, the manager of communications and engagement for the Cowichan Valley Regional District. “It was important for us to do it across the region because it was an evolving situation that was happening in a number of different areas.”

The Cowichan Community Centre was opened as a group lodging and reception centre, and hosted around 28 evacuated residents from North Cowichan and the Halalt First Nation. The centre is now closed, and anyone impacted has been moved to different accommodations.

The CVRD says the state of emergency is remaining in place until further notice.

Officials say the centre is ready to re-open if flooding returns.

A business in the impacted area, Russell Farms Market & Garden Centre, is seeing major flooding.

Dyana Lewis lives just down the street from the market, on Mount Sicker Road.

“There was just water absolutely everywhere and it was flowing hard,” said Lewis. “If anybody tried to walk across it, I’m sure they would have just been swept.”

Her house is on a hill, so it was safe from the flooding. Lewis’ barn, however, is on lower ground and saw lots of flooding early in the morning.

“We have a 20-acre hay field and it was completely under water,” she said. “The barn where the horses were standing, they were standing in about a foot of water.”

Many residents are sharing similar stories of the impact the flooding has had on their homes. Highway Rentals owner Bernadette Scudder said that’s why everyone is pitching in to help by providing free sandbags to residents needing them to protect their properties from the water.

“We’ve gotten phone calls from people all day saying ‘do we need a hand, do we need help filling the sand bags,'” she said.

Early Saturday morning Highway 1 at the McKenzie interchange in Saanich saw closures due to flooding in the underpass.

Traffic is now flowing in the area.

Other roadways across the Island that were impacted including:

  • Cowichan Valley: Westholme Road, Chemainus Road, Canada Avenue, Mary Street, Tzouhalem Road — closed due to flooding.
  • Tofino/ Ucluelet: Highway 4, in both directions,  between Tofino-Ucluelet Hwy and Toquart Bay Road — single alternating lane due to a washout
  • Multiple roads leading to Bamfield — impacted after washouts.
  • Multiple roads in the Nanaimo area — closed due to flooding.
Many of the routes have been opened back up. The CVRD says flaggers are now in place at any closures in their area.

There were also delays on the Malahat. A fallen tree and a mudslide caused intermittent closures. Around noon the route was clear.

The weather is being blamed on an “atmospheric river”, which are long, narrow regions in the atmosphere that transport most of the water vapour outside of the tropics.

Kazakhstan’s Capital under “State of Emergency” as Severe Week-Long Winter Storm Continues to Ravage the City      January 28, 2020 Cap Allon

Authorities in the Kazakhstan capital of Nur-Sultan have declared a state of emergency after a week-long winter storm continues to pummel the city with strong winds and heavy snow, reports

Deputy Minister of Interior of Kazakhstan, Yuri Ilyin, declared the emergency over the weekend.

Since January 23, a total of 645 people have required rescuing from the snowstorms and accompanying drifts, according to In addition, and over the same period, 133 stranded vehicles have been been dug-out and towed — 106 cars, 9 buses, 18 trucks, and 1 loader.

Transportation links to and from Nur-Sultan were cut on January 27, while all schools in the capital remained closed. A spokesman for city’s International Airport has confirmed that all flights have been cancelled indefinitely, for obvious safety reasons.

Dozens of highways across the Central Asian country have been closed due to the recent severe winter storms, as the lower-latitudes continue to refreeze in line with historically low solar activity, further heavy snowfall is expect in the region over the coming days.

Deadly Storm Gloria batters Spain and France killing 9 with winds of up to 90 mph (144kmh) and waves up to 13.5 metres (44 feet) high. (spectacular video)

Nine people have died and four are missing after Storm Gloria continued to batter eastern Spain with high winds, heavy rain, snowfall and huge waves. The storm, which had left 220,000 people in the Tarragona region without electricity on Tuesday, began to shift away on Wednesday and is now battering southern France, however, some north-eastern and Balearic areas remained on orange alert.

A man died of hypothermia in Carcaixent, Valencia on Wednesday, while a woman was killed in Alicante province when her home collapsed. A farmer in Almería died after becoming trapped in a greenhouse during a hailstorm and another man was found dead in a flooded area a few miles inland from Benidorm. Gloria had claimed five other lives between Sunday and Tuesday with winds of up to 90 mph (144kmh) and waves up to 13.5 metres (44 feet) high.

Spain – Storm Surge From Storm Gloria Reaches 3km Inland 

A severe storm brought powerful winds, cold temperatures, snow and coastal flooding to wide areas of Spain from 20 January. Media blamed at least 4 deaths on the storm. Satellite images show storm surge swept 3km inland in Tarragona Province, resulting in severe damage to rice paddies and the ecosystem.

The storm, named “Gloria” by the State Meteorological Agency of Spain, AEMET, produced waves of over 8 metres along the coastline of south-eastern Spain on 20 January.

AEMET reported wind gusts of 115 km/h in Oliva, Valencia, on 20 January and 106 km/h in Barcelona the next day.

Heavy rain was also reported, with Barx in Valencia recording 190.4mm of rain in 24 hours to 20 January. The following day Horta de Sant Joan in Tarragona Province, Catalonia, recorded 227.4mm.

Media reported damaging coastal floods in Valencia, Alicante, Tarragona and Barcelona Provinces.

Images from Copernicus Emergency Management Service show storm surge on the east coast of Spain swept 3km inland, devastating rice paddies in the Ebro river delta south of Barcelona. The mayor of Deltebre, Lluís Soler, estimated around 30 sq km of rice fields have been flooded by seawater and said “the delta is in emergency!”

In Valencia Region, schools were suspended and several roads cut off. The storm also forced the closure of Alicante airport, leading to the cancellation of nearly 200 flights. Unusually cold temperatures were also reported in the south-east, and at least 2 people died as a result of hypothermia.

Strong winds and heavy snowfall affected central and northern parts of the country. One person died as a result of strong winds in Avila Province, Castile and León Region, and another in a vehicle accident on snowbound roads in the Asturias Region.
