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.

Russia is enduring its harshest winter in over 70 years, with temperatures plunging as low as -50 degrees Celsius. Dozens of people have already died, and almost 150 have been hospitalized.

­The country has not witnessed such a long cold spell since 1938, meteorologists said, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees lower than the seasonal norm all over Russia.

Across the country, 45 people have died due to the cold, and 266 have been taken to hospitals. In total, 542 people were injured due to the freezing temperatures, RIA Novosti reported.

The Moscow region saw temperatures of -17 to -18 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, and the record cold temperatures are expected to linger for at least three more days. Thermometers in Siberia touched -50 degrees Celsius, which is also abnormal for December.

­The Emergency Ministry has issued warnings in 15 regions, which have been put on high alert over possible disruptions of communication and power.

Across the country, heat pipelines have broken down due to the cold. In southeastern Russia’s Samara, the cold has broken down many heat pipelines, leaving hundreds of homes without heating, including an orphanage and a rest house. Many schools and kindergartens have been closed for almost a week. 

The cold spell, along with snowfalls, has disrupted flights all over the country, and led to huge traffic jams. In the southern city of Rostov-on-Don some highways were closed due to snowfalls over the past two days, triggering a traffic collapse.

Metro Vancouver storm surge a climate-change preview, expert says.

METRO VANCOUVER - The combination of a king tide and a surging storm that pummelled parts of Vancouver’s iconic seawall Monday are symptomatic of what climate change and rising sea levels could mean for the region, according to an expert.

Oceanographer Susan Allen said that in coming years, the flooding seen in parts of Metro Vancouver’s waterfront could occur outside a “coincidence” like Monday’s heavy wind and rain that combined with the so-called king tides, which are nearing the end of their month-long peak in British Columbia.

“In the future we won’t have to have quite so high a tide at the time of a storm surge to get exactly what we had today because the water will be a little higher,” Allen said. “The important thing is “and.”

“If you get global warming and a big tide and a storm surge then we (have) problems.”

King tides, also known as a perigean spring tide, are formed twice a year when the gravitational pull of the sun and moon reinforce each other. Usual water levels at high tide are 3.4 metres to 4.3 metres in the Vancouver area, but a king tide can reach five metres, as it did (almost 5.5 m) at 9 a.m. Monday. A significantly lower high tide will occur Tuesday and continue to decrease this week, according to Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

Logs and debris smashed into Stanley Park’s seawall Monday, causing significant damage to the pathway from Second Beach to the Siwash Rock. The seawall was closed from Second Beach to Lions Gate Bridge as waves ricocheted over its path onto the cliff face, putting cyclists, runners and those walking at risk, said park board spokesman Jason Watson. Most of the beaches were submerged in water. Gates were placed along the path and city staff were present to direct anyone away from the area.

Samoa Flooding Worst in Memory (Dec 17)

The Samoa capital, Apia, has been hit by the worst flooding residents can remember in the wake of tropical cyclone Evan.

The Disaster Management Office said in a statement: "Power is off for the whole country . . . Tanugamanono power plant is completely destroyed and we might not have power for at least two weeks,"

Winds of up to 200 kilometres an hour hit the region early on Monday. Hundreds of people were evacuated as high winds damaged homes and Apia's Vaisigano River broke its banks.

"Most of the mountains have been stripped bare of leafs and trees and so all the plantations have been affected," she told Radio Australia's Asia Pacific.

"You've got taro, grapefruit and banana all affected. Once we get over this, the cyclone itself, we're going to have major food issues afterwards."

The National Emergency Operations Centre says the damaging impact of the storm is as severe as the tsunami that devastated the country in 2009.

Pictures of damage have also emerged from the small Pacific territory of Wallis and Futuna, where the eye of cyclone Evan reportedly passed within 50 kilometres.

In Samoa the death toll stands officially at four but eight fishermen are still missing at sea.

Authorities say 4,500 people are in emergency evacuation centres after their homes were flooded or destroyed.

Seti Afoa said cyclone Evan "hit Apia directly" after travelling "as slow as a car" over part of the island.

"The cyclone brought with it a huge amount of water, dumped it on the hills". The significant rainfall was ironic as the country had previously been praying for rain, with shortages looming.

The Vaisigano River filled and swept down to the coast, coinciding with "the biggest tide of the year", Seti Afoa said.

The combination meant of flooded river and high tide "this is the worst flooding Apia has faced. People have lost everything - homes, shops, cars."

The flooding was "appalling".

"We should have electricity for the whole country some time next week," she said.

"Right now electricity is prioritised for hospitals and the central business district, some other parts of the country and the airport.

"Most likely it will take about a week, the whole of this week to finish off the clean-up.

Disaster assessment teams are now moving out across the island of Upolu, which has bore the brunt of Cyclone Evan.

Ms Nelson says a picture is emerging of widespread and severe damage.

Food staples such as bananas and breadfruit have been particularly badly hit.

Broken trees and battered plantations stretch for kilometres in the south-west of the island.

A state of emergency has been declared after the cyclone struck the South Pacific nation last Thursday.

Mr Grimsich told Pacific Beat the damage caused by Cyclone Evan is much worse than initially expected.

"There's a number of power lines down, roads damaged, we're having a lot of difficulty communicating by mobile phones because the lines are actually quite jammed at the moment," he said.

"We had a large number of people displaced from their homes near the coast and near the river."

Many places in Samoa have only just rebuilt after being devastated by a tsunami in 2009.

It said hospitals and other essential services were using standby generators, with water supplies also out and most roads cut off by fallen trees and power poles.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs said the cyclone had caused "damage to local services and infrastructure, including communications and electricity services and Faleolo International Airport".

"The Australian High Commission in Apia has closed until further notice due to storm damage," DFAT said.

It advises travelers to exercise normal safety precautions in Samoa.

In Wallis and Futuna, communication to the region is difficult and images show battered homes and uprooted trees on the island of Wallis.

100 Year Storm Causes Widespread Damage Across Eastern Scotland (Dec 15) -

Gale-force winds and unusually high tides have caused damage across areas of eastern and northern Scotland.

Huge waves caused up to £500,000 damage to North Berwick harbour in East Lothian, as sea defences were swept away.
A 15m section of the harbour wall collapsed in Lossiemouth in Moray.

And residents of a sheltered housing complex were evacuated after coastal flooding hit parts of Aberdeenshire.

Gerry Hughes, chairman of the North Berwick Harbour Trust Association, said he believed the storm that hit the town overnight between Friday and Saturday was the worst in more than 100 years.
Rest centre

He added: "This was a massive storm causing damage to sea walls that have stood for 150-odd years.

"The wind strength wasn't all that high, but the sea was absolutely beyond understanding. In the harbour you have a 40ft sea container that was washed approximately 200m, took away some fencing, and went straight into the harbour.

"There were also sea defence boulders weighing up to 200 kilos washed 150m along the esplanade, so that gives you the size and some sort of scale of the energy of the whole thing."

High tides and severe weather led to 25 people being taken from sheltered complexes at Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire.

They were taken to St Bridget's Hall in the town, where a rest centre was set up.

Further north at Peterhead, about 30 people were evacuated from properties in the Roanheads area.

The town's RNLI lifeboat launched in what were described as "horrendous" conditions at 02:30 to rescue three people marooned on the east side of Peterhead harbour.

A spokeswoman for Aberdeenshire Council said the high tide again reached Stonehaven at about 14:30 on Saturday, causing further coastal flooding.

People evacuated from affected properties earlier in the day remained out of their homes, with most having been collected by friends or family and alternative accommodation has been found for others, including at the new Edenholme care village in Stonehaven.

A flooding advice centre will be set up at Aberdeenshire Council's housing office on Allardice Street in Stonehaven on Monday from 11:00 until 16:30.

Elsewhere, a 15m section of the harbour wall collapsed in Lossiemouth. Police and council staff were at the scene and warned some flooding was possible at high tide. They also urged people to stay away from the area until it was made safe.

The village of Kingston in Moray was said to have been completely cut off after its sea defences were breached.

In Wick, on the far north coast, roads were closed and fishing boats were damaged in high winds.

About 12 cars were moved from a car park when a strong surge breached a river bank, police said, and several roads were closed by debris thrown up by the waves.

The town The Shore, Harbour Quay and South Quay were closed.

Huge waves caused part of the harbour wall at Balintore, near Tain in Ross-shire, to collapse, with two boys aged 12 and 14 suffering minor cuts after being thrown to the ground by the force of the water.

Resident George Wood, 52, said: "I've lived in Balintore all my life and I've never seen it this bad before. It's devastation. The wall should have been repaired long ago."

And storm force winds continued to batter Shetland throughout Saturday, with the road through Sandsayre in Sandwick flooded.

The force of the waves combined with the high tide ripped up part of the beach and lifted some of the boats onto the road, and the nearby boat museum was flooded.

The Scottish government has convened its Resilience Room in response to the storms.

Kiev Hit by Heaviest Snowfalls on Record (Dec 13) -

Ukrainian capital Kiev was experiencing its snowiest period since meteorological records began in 1881, the Ukrainian Hydro Meteorological Center said Thursday.

The amount of snow that Ukraine's Kiev has seen during the recent couple of days corresponds to what the city normally sees during two winter months.

The city is literally paralyzed. There are meter-high snowdrifts in the streets, trees break under the weight of snow. Seventeen trees have broken in the city as a result of heavy snowfalls.

Heavy snowfall and strong wind blocked roads across northern Ukraine and left hundreds of villages without electricity, authorities said Tuesday.

The Emergencies Ministry said sleet, snow and powerful wind brought down power lines in some 200 villages in northern Ukraine.

With snow as thick as 50 cm in some areas, hundreds of cars were blocked on the snow-covered highways in the northern Kiev and Chernigov regions.

The snowy weather has caused traffic chaos in the capital, where some 10,000 of cars have been stranded on major transport interchanges and bridges.

"Kiev faces severe weather conditions. The amount of snow and sleet exceeded previously recorded values for the entire period of meteorological observations since 1881," the weather bureau said in a statement.

The snowfall has lasted for more than two days in the Ukrainian capital and brought total precipitation to 103 millimeters.

Kiev State Administration declared a state of emergency as heavy snow paralyzed the city's roads. More than 360 snowplows are struggling to clear the capital.

The head of the Kiev City State Administration Alexander Popov urged all residents to come out into the streets to remove the snow. Drivers are recommended not to use their cars.

The head of the city administration addressed the citizens and guests of the Ukrainian capital. The document published on the website of the Kiev administration says that heavy snowfalls have triggered a state of emergency in the city, MediaPort reports. This will give an opportunity to have public utilities, departments of EMERCOM and the Ministry of Defense, as well as builders and employees of various companies involved in the work to remove snow from the streets.

The damage from the prolonged snowfall in Kiev is estimated at some 125,000 U.S. dollars per day, according to authorities.

Rare December Tornadoes Slam Southern States (Dec 10) -

At least nine tornadoes ripped through four southern states Monday evening, blowing over gas pumps and destroying homes on Monday.

The hardest hit areas by the unusual December tornadoes were in Florida and Alabama.

In Edgewater, Fla., 40 homes were damaged and 12 completely destroyed. There were two people with minor injuries but no deaths, the Edgewater Fire Department reported. Most of the damage was inside Terra Mar Village, a mobile home community.

The city firehouse in Gonzales, La., was badly damaged by one of the tornadoes. The fire crew, which was out at the time, was forced to return to the building, The Weather Channel reported.

Wind from the tornado blew through the firehouse’s back doors and blew out the front of the building. Inmates were sent out by the sheriff's office to help clean up the wreckage.

In Alabama, there were no reported injuries or deaths, the Birmingham Fire Department reported, but a gas station off I-165 had its pumps blown over.

The Weather Channel reported widespread tree damage and structural damages to buildings in other areas of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama.  

The forecast for Tuesday calls for a slight risk of tornadoes in areas stretching from Daytona Beach to Fort Meyers, Fla. Damaging winds, spotty hail and three to four inches of rainfall are expected.

There was a total of nine tornado reports in the U.S. on Monday, according to the Storm Prediction Center.

National Weather Service survey crews confirmed several tornadoes.
A EF-1 tornado touched down just northwest of downtown Birmingham, Ala., shortly before 5 a.m. CST on Monday. The twister damaged a metal roof of a building and caused the overhead doors to collapse. The tornado then moved on to damage 29 homes, two of which sustained severe damage. The tornado path was 1.05 miles long and 250 yards wide. Wind speeds have been estimated at 90 mph.

An EF-1 tornado with peak winds up to 100 mph touched down in Walthall County, Miss., before 8 a.m. CST Monday. The tornado destroyed a metal building and threw debris 200-300 yards away. Two homes were damaged and a barn was destroyed. Several trees were severely damaged, while hay bales were thrown 75-100 feet. The twister was on the ground for 17 miles. The tornado was up to 100 yards wide.

An EF-1 tornado with maximum winds of 100 mph hit Marion County, Miss., shortly after 8:15 a.m. CST Monday. Numerous trees were damaged and uprooted along the tornado's path. A few sheds and gazebos were destroyed, while a metal carport was thrown onto a home. Shingle damage occurred to other homes. The twister was on the ground for 3 miles.

An EF-1 tornado with winds estimated at 105 mph struck eastern Baton Rouge Parish, La., before 7 a.m. CST Monday. The twister damaged a home and a convenience store. Numerous trees were damaged by the tornado. The worst damage was caused in the Lincoln Heights Subdivision, where trees were snapped and homes suffered moderate to major roof damage. The tornado was on the ground for 5.4 miles.

An EF-1 tornado with 90-mph winds hit Ascension Parish, La., shortly before 9:00 a.m. CST Monday. It tore a metal roof off a boat dealership and smashed the windshields of 10 cars at a car dealership. A pickup truck was lofted about 20 feet into the air before being thrown back onto its wheels. Numerous trees were damaged, while minor damage was inflicted to a few homes. The twister blew out five large overhead doors of a fire station. A metal frame building had extensive damage. The tornado's path length was 1.33 miles with a maximum width of 25 yards.

Public reports and pictures confirmed a waterspout over Lake Apoka in Orange County, Fla., at 4:30 p.m. EST on Monday.

NWS Survey crews will be in Volusia County, Fla., today examining damage from a possible tornado before 5:30 p.m. EST Monday. Twelve mobile homes were damaged and rooftops were ripped off homes. Power lines were also downed.

'Fist-Sized' Hail Damages Hundred of Homes Near Johannesburg South Africa (Dec 9) -
More than 500 houses have been damaged in Ladysmith by "fist-sized" hail stones.  The storm hit the Akasia area of Ladysmith on Sunday evening.

No deaths or injuries had been reported, although an unknown number of families had been forced to take shelter in a local school hall.

Mabaso warned that the province should continue to brace itself for inclement weather.

"We have no prediction of any area, but there is a constant change in weather conditions and we will constantly advise people as it changes."

The public had to make sure their homes were safe and find out whether they lived on a flood plain.

"You must be able to know who to contact in a case of emergency. When it rains, don't just sit and pretend it's normal," he said.

Freezing Britain: Siberian front brings ice, snow and -16C temperatures (but at least these skiers are enjoying themselves)

  • Temperatures expected to dip from Sunday with frozen conditions bringing chaos to the roads later in the week
  • Commuters pictured battling through heavy snow in Leeds, Newcastle and Lincolnshire
  • AA warn drivers to be prepared for treacherous conditions and advise grit is ineffective below -9C
  • Icy gusts from the east will bring a wind chill factor of -16C next week, according to Met Office forecasters
  • Follows a week of transport chaos with airports closing and dramatic car crashes putting police officers and a boy of 11 into hospital

By Daily Mail Reporter


With icy blasts sweeping in from Siberia expected to send the mercury plummeting from as early as tomorrow afternoon, skiers made a rare UK appearance this morning enjoying an unexpected spot of glorious sunshine.

The intrepid winter sportsmen took to the gentle slopes of the South Tyne Valley, near Alston, in Cumbria, and if forecasters are correct there will be plenty more of the white stuff to come.

After today's brief respite, many parts of Britain face their first significant snow of the winter, with freezing winds, treacherous ice and sub-zero temperatures forecast for much of  next week.

The Met Office has warned that snow will ‘march relentlessly’ down the East coast and by mid-week temperatures there will struggle to rise above freezing – day or night. In some parts of the country, the mercury could plunge as low as -16C (3F).

Forecasters said bitter easterly winds – dubbed ‘the Beast from the East’ – will arrive after a mild weekend in which temperatures could rise to 9C (16F) in the South.
