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.

Huge wildfire rages on Table Mountain forcing hundreds of University of Cape Town students to evacuate - as academic library burns and historic 300-year-old mill is destroyed

  • More than 100 firefighters were sent to battle a blaze that broke out on Table Mountain early on Sunday morning
  • The fire destroyed part of a memorial to Cecil Rhodes, located on Devils Peak, before spreading rapidly up the slopes
  • Hundreds of students from the University of Cape Town were evacuated as runaway flames set several of the university's buildings ablaze 
  • Residents have not been evacuated but have been cautioned to be on alert, keep windows closed and dampen their gardens

A wildfire is raging on the slopes of South Africa's Table Mountain, forcing hundreds of students to evacuate on Sunday.

Runaway flames set several University of Cape Town buildings ablaze as firefighters used three helicopters to water-bomb the area.

More than 100 firefighters were sent to battle the blaze and two were hospitalised for treatment after sustaining burns, officials said.

Runaway flames set several University of Cape Town buildings ablaze as firefighters used three helicopters to water-bomb the area

The blaze was still burning and helicopters were still dropping water as the sun began to set on Sunday evening 

The fire began early on Sunday near a memorial to Cecil Rhodes, located on Devils Peak, another part of Cape Town's mountainous backdrop, before spreading rapidly up the slopes.  

The blaze has destroyed part of a cafe at the Rhodes Memorial, the BBC reported. reported that the university's library had been reduced to 'ash and dust' and that the 200-year-old Mostert's Mill windmill at Mowbray had also been destroyed. 

The Jagger Library was nearly 200 years old and housed an original illustration of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book as well as drawings, maps and transcripts of stories from the indigenous peoples of the Cape within its collection.

Built in 1796 Mostert's Mill was the oldest surviving and only complete windmill in South Africa. reported that the university's library had been reduced to 'ash and dust'. Pictured: Firefighters try to extinguish the flames in the library

Heavy smoke could be seen from miles away and some roads were closed on Sunday.

Table Mountain National Park, which spreads over much of the city's unbuilt area, called on social media for hikers to leave the area and for motorists to remove cars parked in the vicinity.

A first alert went up shortly before 9 am (0700 GMT), the city said.  

The University of Cape Town said in a statement that all students had been evacuated from campus by emergency support staff

The university, ranked among the best on the continent, is largely built on the slopes of Devil's Peak and is situated close to where the fire started.

Social media footage showed students milling around on the main road, amid billowing smoke fanned by strong winds.

In another video, tweeted by the local government, flames are seen raging inside an old building lined with columns as smoke plumes rose from its roof.

City officials said they have not asked residents in the popular Rondebosch suburb and surrounding area to evacuate.

'The situation is being monitored and staff will go door-to-door in the event that evacuation is required,' officials said.    

Residents have been cautioned to be on alert, Charlotte Powell, spokeswoman for the city's disaster risk management center, said in a statement.

'At this stage, there's no cause to evacuate, but we ask that residents adhere to the following: close all windows to prevent draft and reduce heat, damp down your garden using a hose or irrigation system,' Powell said.

'Out of control' wildfire that caused evacuations in southern Alberta contained, alerts cancelled

Two wildfires east of Highway 2 caused evacuations in southern Alberta during Sunday afternoon’s wind storm.

An emergency alert was issued for parts of southern Alberta after two wildfires began east of Highway 2. RCMP evacuated the Village of Carmangay due to one fire, describing the blaze as “out of control” and spanning 11 to 16 kilometres across. The village, located about 60 kilometres north of Lethbridge, has a population of 242.

An evacuation centre was opened at Claresholm Community Centre. The Town of Claresholm reported the blaze around 1:45 p.m.

Carmangay Mayor Stacey Hovde, speaking by phone from the village, said he believed the blaze started about 20 kilometres west, but the distance had closed to 10 kilometres a couple of hours later.

“I can see the fire. I can see the smoke,” he said.

Hovde said that on Saturday night, a separate fire destroyed the Grange Hotel in Carmangay, which had stood since 1905, adding no injuries were reported.

“We’re having a heck of a 24 hours,” he said.

Highway 520 east of Claresholm was closed Sunday afternoon in both directions because of the fire. Highway 2 south of the town reopened around 4:10 p.m. after an overturned semi-trailer forced the road to close.

Around 7 p.m., the emergency alert was cancelled because the fire had been contained, ending the Carmangay evacuation.

Vulcan RCMP said the Municipal District of Willow Creek was working on a re-entry plan for residents who were evacuated.

“There were injuries sustained as a result of the fire and all injured persons are being treated for their injuries,” Vulcan RCMP said in a release.

Over 5,000 hectares were damaged by the blaze. RCMP helped manage three semi-rollovers and two other collisions as a result of the high winds, in addition to assisting fire crews with the wildfires. As of 8 p.m., all highways in the area had been reopened.

The second grass fire, on the Blood Reserve, west of Lethbridge, forced the evacuation of approximately 15 homes in the Fort Whoop-Up area on the east end of the Blood Reserve and caused temporary closures of a “significant portion” of Highway 509, according to the Blood Tribe.

An emergency shelter for the fire was set up at the Standoff multi-purpose building. The emergency alert was no longer in effect by 7 p.m., as emergency crews held the fires and were working on hot spots and flare-ups into the evening.,The blaze was brought control shortly before 9 p.m., the Blood Tribe said in a statement.

Southern Alberta was under a wind watch, with a southwest wind gusting to 120 km/h in wind-prone areas, according to Environment Canada.

The wicked winds were part of a system that also prompted a wind warning and a snow squall watch for Calgary.

Environment Canada said strong, westerly winds gusting up to 100 km/h were moving from the Rockies into Calgary.

The wind could be strong enough to cause damage to buildings, particularly singles and windows, the agency said. They advised drivers to watch for changing road conditions due to the winds. Signs, garbage and other material blew through several city streets and parks Sunday afternoon.

A cold front was also expected to bring pockets of intense snowfall to southern Alberta on Sunday night and Monday morning. Environment Canada said snow and wind could combine to create near-zero visibility at times.

Snow squalls can be unpredictable and can cause weather conditions to vary considerably even across short distances.

“Changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common,” Environment Canada’s alert read.

“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.”

The advisories follow a special weather statement issued for Calgary and other parts of Alberta Saturday evening, warning Sunday’s warm afternoon temperatures could drop by 15 degrees due to the “potent” cold front.

The front could also bring with it rain showers, flurries and weak thunderstorms.

In southwestern Alberta, areas along the eastern slopes of the Rockies could see upwards of 20 centimetres of snow by Tuesday morning.

Calgary, meanwhile, had a forecasted snowfall of two to four centimetres.

Evacuations in NSW due to potentially record and life-threatening flooding, Australia

Evacuations in NSW due to potentially record and life-threatening flooding, Australia

Residents across New South Wales, Australia, have been ordered to evacuate on Friday, March 19, 2021, after severe flooding-- described by the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) as "potentially life-threatening"-- swept through the state. Severe inundations are already occurring along major rivers, with some expected to surpass record levels overnight.

"We are seeing very intense, very heavy, potentially life-threatening rainfall happening on the mid-north coast right now," the BOM stated. "We're seeing rainfall totals of over 100 mm (4 inches) falling in about an hour. That is very dangerous rainfall."

Residents in low-lying areas along the lower Macleay River are the latest to be urged to evacuate by Friday evening. People in low-lying areas in Kempsey were also warned that they may need to flee as waters are expected to severely flood the CBD overnight.

Other residents told to evacuate were those in some properties in Kings Point, the Macksville CBD, Bulahdelah, North Haven, Dunbogan, Camden Head, Laurieton, and Port Macquarie. In Nambucca, heavy rains have caused a landslip, while roads have been washed away further south in Port Stephens.

Severe flooding is already taking place along several major rivers, with the Hastings and Wauchope expected to exceed record levels overnight.

Multiple warnings and evacuation alerts are in force for the NSW mid-north coast. More flood warnings are in place across a dozen rivers, including in greater Sydney and the far west area.

On Saturday, March 20, Sydney is expected to bear the brunt of the severe weather as the system moves south.

"We might see quite a significant flash flooding and we've got a flood watch current for both the Nepean and Hawkesbury rivers," said Justin Robinson, a flood forecaster in NSW with the BOM.

"We're likely to see a spill from Warragamba Dam and that will then impact those communities downstream."

During the past 24 hours, the State Emergency Services (SES) attended to at least 57 flood rescues and responded to more than 1 300 calls for help.

Heavy downpours are expected to continue into next week and may bring the heaviest rainfall since February 2020. Inland NSW is also forecast to be drenched by another system in the coming week.

Deadly floods sweep through Kinshasa and Brazzaville in Congo and DR Congo

Deadly floods sweep through Kinshasa and Brazzaville in Congo and DR Congo

Severe flash flooding hit the neighboring cities of Kinshasa in DR Congo and Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo after heavy rains on Tuesday, March 16, 2021. At least four people died, while several houses and infrastructure were damaged.

Heavy downpours triggered severe flash flooding in Kinshasa and Brazzaville, resulting in fatalities and damaged homes.

As of Wednesday, March 17, local media reported evacuations in areas near the Tsieme River in Brazzaville after floodwaters swept through homes and paralyzed the city.

In DR Congo, torrential rains caused dikes to break, sending waters to many houses. Four children died in the floods and several houses were swept away in Kisenso Municipality, east of the city.

The Ndjili bridge collapsed, causing major transport problems from and to N'Djili International Airport. The incident also cut off some communities of Tshangu District from the rest of Kinshasa.

According to residents, many of them lost valuables as flooding invaded their homes. The deputy mayor of Masina added that flooding also infiltrated markets. In several neighborhoods, flooding caused the collapse of walls.

Severe flooding damages roads, hundreds of houses in northern Morocco

Severe flooding damages roads, hundreds of houses in northern Morocco

Heavy rains triggered severe flash flooding in the city of Tetouan in northern Morocco on Monday, March 1, 2021, leaving 275 houses damaged, as well as dozens of vehicles and infrastructure.

The dramatic situation in Tetouan made rounds on social media. Roads and infrastructure were damaged, as well as around 275 houses and dozens of vehicles.

According to local media, many routes were closed as roads were impassable.

Up to 100 mm (3.9 inches) of rain was recorded in a nine-hour period to Monday afternoon, which also caused rivers and drainage channels to burst.

Prior to the severe weather, the directorate of meteorology issued a number of orange-level notices to warn citizens of heavy rains.

Further rainfall warnings were issued for the provinces of Al Hoceima, Chefchaouen, Fahs-Anjra, M’Diq, and Fnideq.

More than 7 700 households without water supply as record snow hits Hokkaido, Japan

More than 7 700 households without water supply as record snow hits Hokkaido, Japan

Heavy snow has been falling intermittently in Hokkaido, Japan, since Tuesday, February 23, 2021, with Iwamizawa city recording its second-highest snowfall of 2.05 m (6.7 feet) on Thursday, 25. It resulted in disruptions in the city, particularly in train services and even the water supply in the neighboring Bibai city, where more than 7 700 households have been affected.

Heavy snow has been piling up in Hokkaido, especially in the Sorachi region, since Tuesday.

Iwamizawa city was blanketed by 2.05 m (6.7 feet) of snow as of Friday morning, the second-highest snowfall in the area since the start of statistics. The figures were just 3 cm (1.2 inches) shy of the record 2.08 m (6.8 feet).

The snow led to travel and water supply disruptions in the area. Hundreds of train services were suspended, while the neighboring Bibai city lost access to water.

Officials believe that the accumulated snow broke the aced water pipe that connects the dam to the water purification plant, according to local media.

As of Thursday evening, 7 700 households were affected.

The local meteorological observatory said the winter-like conditions will continue until Saturday, February 27.

At least 2 400 cold temperature records broken or tied in the U.S. from February 12 to 16, 2021

At least 2 400 cold temperature records broken or tied in the U.S. from February 12 to 16, 2021

At least 2 400 preliminary daily cold temperature records, including cold maximums and minimums, were broken or tied at longer-term sites (75+ years of data) in the United States from February 12 to 16, 2021. The cold snap peaked from February 14 to 16. Another winter storm will affect a large area from Friday, February 19 -- from the Lower Mississippi Valley into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

Over just the past week, much of the Lower 48 has been punished with record-breaking cold and unusually heavy snow and ice, NWS Weather Prediction Center said.

From the Pacific Northwest across the Rockies and into the Southern Plains and Midwest, the snowfall has been measured in feet. Ice and snow continue to plague Texas and the Northeast.

In the NCEI database, approximately 30% of available U.S. sites set cold maximum records, and about 20% set minimum records.

Analyzed temperatures were 22 to 28 °C (40 - 50 °F) below average over a large portion of the central and southern Plains.

At the peak of the cold, more than 5 million homes were without power, most of them in Texas (4.3+ million). More than 30 people have lost their lives.

Some of the records on February 15 and 16 include:

-38.8 °C (-38 °F) at Hibbing/Chisholm, MN on February 15. The previous record was -35.5 °C (-28 °F) set on February 15, 1939.

-36.1 °C (-33 °F) at Valentine, NE on February 15. The previous record was -33.3 °C (-28 °F) set in 2007.

-33.8 °C (-29 °F) at North Platte, NE on February 15. The previous record was -30.5 °C (-23 °F) set in 1881.

-35 °C (-31 °F) at Lincoln, NE on February 16. The previous record was -27.7 °C (-18 °F) set in 1978.

-34.4 °C (-30 °F) at Hastings, NE on February 16. The previous record was -25 °C (-13 °F) set in 1979.

-33.3 °C (-28 °F) at Sioux City, IA on February 16. The previous record was -31.6 °C (-25 °F) set in 1936.

73% of CONUS was covered in snow as of midnight CST, February 16, making it the greatest extent on record in the database which dates back to 2003.

Here are some snowfall totals over the past two days for the winter storm that entered Texas and Oklahoma Tuesday morning, February 16. 

"Some very impressive numbers for what has been an extraordinarily active pattern over the past week," NWS WPC said.

On February 14, U.S. saw the largest area covered by issued Winter Storm Warnings in the Lower 48 states since at least 2005.

~1.6 million km2 (994 193 mi2) beats the previous number 1 day over the past 15+ years of 1.2 million km2 (745 645 mi2) on February 1, 2011.

A major winter storm will continue to bring significant impacts from the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast U.S. today, February 18, with significant ice accumulations and heavy snowfall expected.

Well below normal temperatures will exist throughout the central third of the country into the weekend.

Libya sees first snow in 15 years as cold snap hits parts of northern Africa and Middle East

Libya sees first snow in 15 years as cold snap hits parts of northern Africa and Middle East

The Green Mountain in northeastern Libya saw its first snowfall in 15 years this week as a cold wave swept through parts of the southern Mediterranean region, northern Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel.

The rare snow started falling on Monday, February 15, which brought delight to residents as they enjoyed the wintry scenery.

Mohammed Saleh, a resident from Bayda, believes that the snowfall is an omen for peace in Libya. "We hope the snowfall will be a good sign for our homeland by unifying our institutions and unifying our country and for people to return to one another and love each other."

He continued, "As we see now, the children, people, and families that came to this area, the area of Sidi Mohamed Al-Hamri."

Ali Al-Shairi, another Bayda Resident, captured the winter wonderland and said he was "surprised by the number of families who came here to take pictures in the snow."

According to the Libyan National Meteorological Center, temperatures below freezing point were recorded in several cities on Monday, including Al-Bayda, Yefren, Nalut, Al-Marj, Green Mountain, and the Nafusa Mountain.

In neighboring Egypt, the cold snap brought freezing rain, strong winds, and mist. While the spell had no remarkable impact on road traffic, officials closed a number of ports in Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheik. Fishing activities were also suspended, as a precautionary measure.

Ice pellets were reported in Alexandria, Beheira, and Port Said, with some parts slicked with snow, according to the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA). 

Heavy snow was experienced as well over parts of the Middle East, including Syria, Lebanon, and Israel since Tuesday, February 16, paralyzing citizens' daily lives.

Local media said the snow has already blocked some of the roads in Syria, including in capital Damascus, and disrupted traffic on Wednesday, February 17. Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported snow as high as 15 cm (6 inches) in Um Houran area in Dahir al-Jabal.

Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S. – State of emergency in Texas

Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S. Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S.

More than 140 million Americans in 26 states were under some sort of winter advisory heading into Monday as a major winter storm swept through the southern Plains.

The storm, which has already caused power outages and a number of pileups on icy roads, was expected to travel up the Northeast through Tuesday, bringing heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures, the National Weather Service said.

Six inches to a foot of snow was forecast to stretch from the mid-Mississippi to Ohio Valleys, across the lower Great Lakes and into northern New England, according to the service.

It also warned about more power outages and significant travel disruptions across much of the southern Plains, as well as “bitterly cold air” that can result in “dangerous or life-threatening wind chills.

At least parts of all 254 counties in Texas were under either a winter storm watch or winter storm warning over the weekend. As of 5:45 a.m. ET, 1.5 million people in Texas were experiencing power blackouts.

The weather was affecting operations at airports across the area, with more than 760 flights canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, amid a holiday weekend.

The first winter storm watch in a decade was issued for Brownsville, Texas. At 3,360 days, they had the longest streak of any National Weather Service office without one.

A police officer in Schulenburg, Texas, was responding to an accident caused by icy conditions, when another car lost control on the ice, striking the police cruiser on Feb. 13.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which manages the flow of electric power in the state, said it was experiencing record-breaking electric demand due to the extreme cold temperatures that have gripped Texas.

In a statement Sunday night, President Joe Biden declared an emergency in Texas and ordered federal assistance to aid state and local response efforts.

The extreme cold dips far into Texas with more than 60 daily record low temperatures on Monday and again on Tuesday in the central U.S., NBC meteorologist Janessa Webb said.

Records could be smashed by a couple of degrees, which is impressive for lows,” she added. “There will be slow improvement in the cold Wednesday through Friday. The cold is really concentrated in the middle of the country, with the coasts being no more than 5-10 degrees below average.

Webb said Dallas and Houston will stay under winter storm warnings until Monday night, with snow accumulations of up to 4 inches and 2 inches respectively.

Texas governor Greg Abbott, along with Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt and Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, have activated National Guard units to assist state agencies with tasks including rescuing stranded drivers.

Winter storm warnings will be in effect until Tuesday in Memphis, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Cleveland, which will see up to 12 inches of snow.

Be ready for the big freeze! That is actually breaking records around the world.
