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.

Trump rips New York City sea wall: 'Costly, foolish' and 'environmentally unfriendly idea'

President Trump on Saturday ripped the "sea wall" that was proposed by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect New York City from damaging natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, calling the plan costly, foolish [and] environmentally unfriendly."

"A massive 200 Billion Dollar Sea Wall, built around New York to protect it from rare storms, is a costly, foolish & environmentally unfriendly idea that, when needed, probably won’t work anyway," the president tweeted.

"It will also look terrible. Sorry, you’ll just have to get your mops & buckets ready!" he added.

UN warns hunger crisis in southern Africa 'on scale we've not seen before'

A record 45 million people across southern Africa are in need of in urgent need of food aid, the UN has said. The situation is expected to get even worse as the annual cyclone season begins.

An unprecedented number of people in 16 countries across southern Africa are gravely food insecure as climate change wreaks havoc on the region, the UN's World Food Program (WFP) warned on Thursday.

"This hunger crisis is on a scale we've not seen before and the evidence shows it's going to get worse," the WFP's Regional Director for Southern Africa, Lola Castro, said in a statement.

The crisis is impacting 45 million people — many of whom are women and children. The region has been hit hard by repeated droughts, widespread flooding and economic hardship.

Eswatini, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe are among the hardest-hit.

Many families across the region are already skipping meals, taking children out of school and falling into debt to stave off agricultural losses, the WFP said.

Wrecking ball weather: Brutal 80mph winds leave trail of destruction across UK with school and tower block roofs torn off, 10-storey scaffolding brought down and rail chaos - after bedlam of Storm Brendan

  • Trees cause issues between Chessington and Motspur Park in London and Marks Tey and Sudbury in Suffolk 
  • Flooding between Romsey and Southampton and Swindon and Bristol Parkway is also bringing problems 
  • Environment Agency imposed 176 flood alerts and 37 warnings after more than an inch of rain fell overnight 
  • Further thundery rain in North and West today with more snow on the way in Scotland and Northern Ireland
  • ** Have you taken photographs of storm damage today? Please email them to: ** 

Stormy weather conditions caused chaos across Britain today after 80mph wind gusts and more than an inch of rain left cars smashed, roofs torn off, scaffolding blown over and homes without power.

A tree blocked the line between Chessington and Motspur Park in South London, the line between Marks Tey and Sudbury in Suffolk was shut after a train hit a tree and there was flooding between Romsey and Southampton.

Heavy rain flooded the railway between Swindon and Bristol Parkway causing 45-minute delays on services, and a landslip between Horsham and Dorking resulted in diversions and disruption on South Western Railway.

The Environment Agency imposed 176 flood alerts and 37 warnings across England after more than an inch of rain fell overnight – with 1.2in (30mm) recorded in Hampshire; about a third of its 3.2in (81mm) monthly average.

Meanwhile a school in the Rhondda Valley in South Wales was forced to close today after a section of its roof was blown off. Part of the hall roof Maerdy Community Primary School came off and there was also flying debris. 

Where are the train delays in Britain today? 

  • All lines blocked between Chessington South and Motspur Park in South London due to a fallen tree
  • Trains between Romsey and Southampton Central disrupted after heavy rain flooded the railway
  • Damage to the train which runs between Marks Tey and Sudbury in Suffolk caused by trees on the line
  • Landslip between Horsham and Dorking means trains may be delayed by up to 20 minutes or diverted
  • Heavy rain on the line between Swindon and Bristol Parkway, causing diversions and 45 minute delays In Slough, Berkshire, a huge section of roof was torn off a building and sent crashing into a busy high street. Onlookers sifted through the rubble after the incident but police do not believe anyone was seriously hurt.

It is believed the roof, which appeared to have landed on a van, was ripped off a block of flats housing around 200 residents. Council officers attended the scene, where 50mph winds were recorded, and helped emergency services workers clear the street.

But the stormy weather is now due to ease temporarily - before another spell of wind and rain hits the UK.

The 48-hour period of wild weather began with Storm Brendan hammering Ireland on Monday, causing thousands of homes to lose power, before bringing winds in excess of 120mph to parts of Scotland.

Airlines were forced to divert flights scheduled to land at Gatwick Airport on Monday evening while ferries and railways faced disruption. A second low-pressure front brought further strong gales to the UK yesterday.

Norway and Scandinavia recorded warmest January day on record with an astonishing 19 deg C, (66 deg F) Earlier this week UK recorded its hottest December day ever 18.7 deg C, (66 deg F)

Winterwonderland...Oslo, Norway in the winter should look like this, credit Christiaan Breur. The Big Wobble

While Norwegians are usually skiing this time of the year with temperatures under zero parts of the west coast yesterday enjoyed an early feel of summer weather thanks to a remarkable rare early January heatwave. Warm records tumbled yesterday as Norway and Scandinavia recorded its warmest January day on record when the mercury hit an astonishing 19 deg C, (66 deg F), an incredible 25 deg C, above the monthly average.

The highest temperature of 19C (66F) - more than 25C above the monthly average - was measured in the village of Sunndalsora. This makes it Norway's warmest January day since records began. While many were enjoying the warm weather, there are concerns that it is another example of climate change. "It's a new record for warm weather here... People [have been] out in the streets in their T-shirts today," Yvonne Wold, mayor of the municipality of Rauma, who had taken a dip in the sea earlier in the day, told the BBC. "A lot of people are usually skiing at this time. Not exactly much of that today," she added. BBC forecaster Peter McAward said the previous January high in Sunndalsora was 17.4C. It also breaks the record for any winter month (December to February) in Scandinavia, he adds. The area also held the December (18.3C) and February (18.9C) Norway maximum records.

Earlier this week new maximum temperature for December in the UK recorded a temperature of 18.7 deg C, (66 deg F) was reached at Achfary, in the Highlands of Scotland the hottest day of December ever recorded in the UK. The old record stands at 18.3 deg C, in Achnashellach in the Highlands on 2 December 1948.

Meanwhile, Christmas was so mild in Moscow authorities dumped thousands of tons of artificial snow onto the streets of the capitol after the Russian capital city enjoyed its mildest Christmas since 1888.

Highway from hell: Thousands are ordered to flee unprecedented 250km stretch of east coast before bushfires return on Saturday - but roads are gridlocked and petrol stations are nearly out of fuel

  • Catastrophic fire conditions are set to ravage Victoria and southern New South Wales with 46C on Saturday
  • A 250km evacuation zone has been set up from Bateman's Bay to the Victorian border as thousands flee
  • HMAS Choules has arrived to provide relief to more than 4,000 still stranded in the town of Mallacoota
  • An operation to evacuate them to a port near Melbourne will take place from Friday morning at 7am 
  • 17 people are missing feared dead and one is confirmed dead after fires in Gippsland on Wednesday

One of the biggest peacetime evacuations in Australian history is under way as devastating bushfires threaten a 250km stretch of the south-east coastline. 

Catastrophic conditions which fanned blazes on the New South Wales south coast and in eastern Victoria on Wednesday will return on Saturday as the mercury hits 46C. 

The NSW Rural Fire Service has told people to flee the area from Bateman's Bay down to the state border - as a navy landing ship prepares to evacuate people trapped in Mallacoota in eastern Victoria as roads are closed off.

'If you are planning on visiting the South Coast this weekend, it is not safe. Do not be in the area on Saturday,' the service said.

NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance called it the 'largest evacuation of people out of the region ever' as a queue of cars clogged the highway toward Sydney while thousands fled.

Locals and holidaymakers who decided to stay queued for hours for supplies as panic-buying emptied shelves at supermarkets which were powered by generators as electricity was turned off.  

At 10am on Thursday the HMAS Choules and the MV Sycamore, a defence contracted training vessel, arrived off the coast of Mallacoota where 4,000 people are stranded - as troops in helicopters delivered food, water and medicine to isolated towns.

The ships will tomorrow morning carry hundreds from the town to either Western Port or Port Welshpool, depending on which has more favourable conditions.

Those who choose to leave after three meetings with police and defence officials this afternoon and evening will be loaded at 7am via smaller boats.

Tourists and residents have been told to evacuate a 250km stretch of the New South Wales south coast as devastating bushfires threaten the area

RFS Deputy Commissioner Rob Rogers told the ABC officials are desperate to get tourists out before Saturday as strong winds, scorching temperatures and low humidity was forecast.

'We have so many fires still burning down there … and quite close to communities as well,' he said.

'We won't get containment on those fires before Saturday.'

HMAS Choules is a Bay-class landing ship that served with the British Royal Navy from 2006 to 2011.

The vessel was built by Swan Hunter in Wallsend, Tyne and Wear. 

She was named after Largs Bay in Ayrshire, Scotland.

During her career with the RFA, Largs Bay served as the British ship assigned to patrol the Falkland Islands in 2008, and delivered relief supplies following the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

When she was bought by Australia in 2011, she was re-named HMAS Choules.Major highways leading out of the leave zone, including the Princes Highway between Milton and Nowra, were reopened on Thursday. Falls Creek at Jervis Bay Road and Corks Lane at Milton has also reopened but with reduced speed.

However, many people have struggled to flee as many petrol stations have either run out of fuel or are without power. Queues of cars have been seen at the remaining petrol stations around Batemans Bay that still have stock.

Tankers of 60,000 litres of fuel were brought in overnight to help with the disaster.  

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said in press conference on Thursday afternoon that 17 people are missing feared dead and one is confirmed dead after fires in Gippsland on Wednesday.

Talking about the evacuation effort, he said the HMAS Choules was able to carry roughly 700 passengers at a time. 

'We think around 3,000 tourists and 1,000 locals are there. Not all of those will want to leave, not all can get on the vessel at one time,' he said.

'Then there's a whole lot of planning going on about where that vessel will go, it will be a long trip, potentially a 10 or 12 hour trip to take them to another port and then to provide them with all the support they will need.'  

Meanwhile, Kosciuszko National Park is being evacuated ahead of Saturday. 'This is an essential measure to protect life,' National Parks and Wildlife has warned.  

Hundreds of fires are burning out of control across the country in a horrific season which has killed 18 people, razed 1,298 homes and destroyed millions of hectares of land.

Weather Office's "Red" Warning Over Severe Cold Wave In Delhi

Delhi temperature today: The IMD this morning said the temperature has risen by 2-3 degree Celsius at many places in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi

Delhi's low tempartures

Delhi Temperature: A cold wave has gripped Delhi and other northern states. 

New Delhi: 

A severe cold wave in the national capital has prompted a "red" warning from the weather office after the temperature this morning was recorded at 2.8 degree Celsius at the Lodhi Road observatory. The Safdarjung observatory recorded a low of 2.4 degree Celsius on Saturday - lowest in decades. A "red" warning from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) means "extreme weather conditions".

Flight and train services have been affected as Delhi temperature plummeted. "My train is four hours late. It was supposed to arrive at 4:25 pm but it will come at 8:30 pm. Our checkout time from the hotel was 12 pm. We have to wait for so long," Adrija Mandal, 19, a passenger going to West Bengal, told NDTV.

"There was heavy fog on the road that connects Delhi and Noida. We had to drive carefully," said Shivani Shukla, who works with a private firm.

The IMD this morning said the temperature has risen by 2-3 degree Celsius at many places in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi. It has, however, dipped by 1-2 degree Celsius at a few places in western Rajasthan and western Madhya Pradesh.

In the north-east, parts of Nagaland saw unprecedented snowfall this week. The state has been experiencing unusual cold conditions over the past three days.

The air quality in Delhi also fell to the "severe" category with the air quality index dangerously high at 465. Officials said low temperature along with high humidity and low wind speed led pollutants to accumulate.

The average maximum temperature this month is likely to be 19.15 degree Celsius. If it happens, then it will be the coldest December since 1997 when it was 17.3 degree Celsius, and the second-coldest December since 1901.

Only on four occasions between 1901 and 2018, the average maximum temperature for December has been either equal to or less than 20 degree Celsius in 1919, 1929, 1961 and 1997.

A respite from the cold and air pollution may come between December 31 and January 2 when light rain is expected. Hailstorm is also expected on January 1 and 2.

Delhi faces second-coldest December for over a CENTURY: India gripped by ‘bone-chilling’ weather 

A wave of unusually cold weather is sweeping across large swathes of India, from remote Kashmir to Delhi, forcing people to seek shelter and light bonfires on the streets. Delhi has been hit with what local media described as ‘bone-chilling days’ this week. In the early hours of Friday, the temperature dropped to almost four degrees Celsius (39.2 degrees Fahrenheit). This December is now on course to become the second coldest in terms of daytime temperatures the capital has seen since 1901, with December 1997 holding the top spot. RT
Cold waves killed more Indians than heatwaves since 1980.

While North India is under the grip of severe 'cold days' and 'cold waves' in 2019, a look at the data provided by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) shows a worrying trend. In 23 of the last 38 years (1980-2018), the human death toll in India due to cold waves was higher than that due to heatwaves. In 1992, 41 times more lives were lost due to cold waves. Between 2010 and 2018. the trend was somewhat different. In this period, around 4,506 people died due to cold waves while 5,572 died due to heatwaves. The notable exception was 2011. That year, human deaths due to cold waves were nearly 60 times more than those due to heatwaves. However, in 2018, the trend reversed again. About 136 people died due to cold waves in comparison to 16 deaths due to heatwaves. The other shocking statistic that emerged between 2010 and 2018 was a whopping 506 per cent increase in the number of cold waves in India, despite increasing temperatures worldwide due to global warming. DTE

The UK is set for its warmest New Year’s Eve in 178 years as a vast tropical plume is expected to bring temperatures to balmy heights. 

The Met Office has forecast that temperatures could reach highs of around 16 deg C, (61 deg F) up to and including New Year’s Eve on Tuesday, a steady increase from the 7 to 9C average at this time of year in England and Wales. In fact, it will be the UK’s warmest December 31 since the temperatures were recorded in 1841 where the record was set at 15.6 deg C, (60 deg F) in Great Yarmouth way back in 1910. Europe Weekly News

Severe flooding forces Fort Lauderdale Airport to CLOSE as overnight storms batter Florida bringing travel misery for Christmas travelers heading home

  • Overnight storms caused flooded roads and a closed airport in Florida on Monday as travelers made their way home for the holiday season 
  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport closed operations before 4am and currently has 382 flight delays
  • Large queues of travelers could be seen waiting due to 'severe rain and flash flooding' in the surrounding area
  • Heavy rainfall may threaten millions this holiday season as flood warnings have been issued along both coasts
  • Snow is likely for the highest elevations of northern Arizona, Utah and Colorado from Tuesday to Thursday 

Overnight storms caused flooded roads and closed an airport in Florida on Monday as travelers battled to make their way home for the holiday season.  

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport shut down its operations before 4am as heavy flooding grounded flights and made roads around the building impassable.  

Arlene Statchell a spokesman with Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport told WSVN: 'The airport was closed for a couple of hours due to the overnight rain that caused flooding, not only on the airport roadways, but on sections of the air fields.

'We are advising travelers to check with their airlines to make sure they have the latest flight information before heading out and, obviously, if you’re picking up or dropping off people, to just prepare and give yourself enough time to get here.'

On Monday afternoon, the airport had recorded 383 flight delays and eight cancellations. Long lines of travelers could be seen waiting as people struggled to get to the airport due to the inclement weather. 'I just got an email saying that it’s delayed until 6.45,' said one traveler.

'We left early enough in the day that I didn’t expect it at all,' another traveler told 7News

Jonathan Libertoff, who was travelling to New York from the airport, told the outlet: 'The shuttle buses for the rental cars were also stuck in the floods so you can’t even get to the terminals.

'You gotta walk about half a mile to get to the terminals, but at least it’s not cold out like in New York.'

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for the Hollywood area at around 2am. It had also issued flash flood warnings for parts of southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina.  

In its latest watch alert, the National Weather Service wrote that a 'strong storm system' is expected to produce another three to six inches of rain on Christmas Eve. 

The lower South Carolina coast carries the highest risk for flash flooding, which can occur quickly in low-lying and poor drainage areas. The risk is further elevated due to high tides on Monday.

Heatwave melts roads in rural SA as records tumble across the country

Thursday, 19 December 2019 8:22 pm

As Australia is scorched by a record-breaking heatwave, rural parts of the country have experienced temperatures so severe that roads are melting.

Some South Australian towns tipped 50C on Thursday, with the mercury hitting 49.9C at Nullarbor - the state's hottest-ever December day.

Ceduna, on the state's Eyre Peninsula, recorded its hottest day in more than 80 years, at 48.8.

At Port Augusta, it was so hot the bitumen on some roads started to melt before residents' eyes, causing a driving hazard.

The Spencer Gulf city hit 48.5, smashing its previous December record.

Adelaide soared to 45.38 - its hottest December day since records began in 1997.

But that record could fall as soon as Friday, when the temperature is expected to reach 46.

The heat has forced the cancellation of events across the state, including Friday's Twilight Race at Morphettville and the Renmark Christmas Pageant.

Adelaide Metro was also forced to cancel afternoon tram services because of the conditions on Thursday.

'Unprecedented' heat

Australia is set to finish the week before Christmas facing temperatures well into the 40s across most of the nation on Friday.

Wednesday's average of 41.9 across the country was one degree hotter than the previous record set on Tuesday.

This average maximum temperature record could be broken again as the heatwave will only continue to intensify, leaving southern and central Australia with temperatures up to 16C above average by Friday.

Three capital cities are all forecast to hit 40C on Thursday, following the hottest day the nation has ever seen on record.

Parts of Tasmania are also set to reach temperatures about 16C above the state average on Friday as the extreme heat gripping mainland Australia spreads south.

Melbourne is forecast to hit 44 on Friday

The 39.3 that sweltered through Canberra on Thursday, to set the capital's hottest December day, might come a close second if the capital reaches the 41 forecast on Friday.

Adelaide could also be set for its hottest December day on Friday, with an upgraded forecast of 46.
