The Number Of Volcanic Eruptions Is Increasing And That Could Lead To An Extremely Cold Winter

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Volcanic Eruption - Public DomainThe number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise, and scientists cannot seem to explain why this is happening.  In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014.  In recent months, we have seen major volcanoes roar to life in Russia, Peru, Hawaii, Reunion Island, Indonesia, and all over Alaska.  It is highly unusual for so many volcanoes to all be erupting at the same time.  According to Volcano Discovery, a whopping 34 volcanoes are erupting around the globe right now.  This is sending a massive amount of dust and ash into the upper atmosphere, and it may explain why many parts of the planet are experiencing strangely cold weather at the moment.  If this trend continues, we could potentially be facing years of crop failures and widespread famines all over the world.

And what we have witnessed already may just be the beginning.  There are several more very large volcanoes around the globe that scientists are extremely concerned about right now.

For example, just check out what is going on in the Philippines

Mayon Volcano in the province of Albay was placed on “Alert Level 3” on Monday evening, September 15, after showing signs of “relatively high unrest,” the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said.

In a bulletin issued at 10:00 pm, PHIVOLCS observed 39 rockfall events from 5:00 am to 8:00 pm on September 15, symptoms of the build-up of magma at the summit dome. At least 32 low frequency volcanic earthquakes were also recorded, indicating magma intrusion or volcanic gas activity.

PHIVOLCS-DOST raised the alert status of Mayon Volcano from Alert Level 2 to Alert Level 3 which is equivalent to a “Critical Alert” in the agency’s 5-level alert system. This means that the volcano is exhibiting relatively high unrest, magma is at the crater, and that an eruption is possible within weeks.

But of even greater concern is Bardarbunga.  It is the largest volcano system in Iceland, and a major eruption could potentially be absolutely catastrophic

This time the threat of an eruption – potentially even more powerful than the one in 2010 – is posed by Bardarbunga, the biggest of Iceland’s 30 or so volcanic systems. Located roughly at the country’s centre, the volcano’s 10-kilometre caldera lies several hundred metres beneath Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier by volume.

Scientists are taking the latest rumblings seriously: roughly 8000 years ago, after all, the volcanic leviathan let rip with the largest eruption of the past 10,000 years.

“It is very difficult to predict exactly what will happen with an eruption,” says Monash University vulcanologist Professor Ray Cas, who is president of the International Association for Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth.

Scientists tell us that over the last 10,000 years Bardarbunga has produced “more lava than any other volcano on the planet.”

If we witness a full scale eruption at Bardarbunga, the cancellation of a few thousand flights may be the smallest of our concerns.

The truth is that we might be looking at the coldest winter that any of us have ever seen in the northern hemisphere.

But don’t just take my word for it.  The following is from a British newspaper article entitled “Icelandic volcano could trigger Britain’s coldest winter EVER this year“…

Depending on the force of the explosion, minute particles thrust beyond the earth’s atmosphere can trigger DECADES of chaotic weather patterns.

Tiny pieces of debris act as billions of shields reflecting the sun’s light away from earth meaning winter temperatures could plunge LOWER THAN EVER before while summer will be devoid of sunshine.

The first effect could be a bitterly cold winter to arrive in weeks with thermometers plunging into minus figures and not rising long before next summer.

If this did happen, there is nothing that we could do to change it.

We would just have to deal with it.

This is a kind of “climate change” that everyone can agree on.  It is well known that volcanic eruptions can substantially lower global temperatures.  In fact, some global warming theorists are already blaming increased volcanic activity for why temperatures have not been rising in recent years

“In the last decade, the amount of volcanic aerosol in the stratosphere has increased, so more sunlight is being reflected back into space,” said lead author Benjamin Santer, climate scientist at Laurence Livermore National Laboratory, in a press release. “This has created a natural cooling of the planet and has partly offset the increase in surface and atmospheric temperatures due to human influence.”

But if Bardarbunga fully erupts, we could be looking at something a lot worse than a little “global cooling”.

We could potentially be facing winters that never seem to end.

It has happened before in recorded history many times.  The following list comes from Wikipedia

The effects of volcanic eruptions on recent winters are modest in scale, but historically have been significant.

Most recently, the 1991 explosion of Mount Pinatubo, a stratovolcano in the Philippines, cooled global temperatures for about 2–3 years.

In 1883, the explosion of Krakatoa (Krakatau) created volcanic winter-like conditions. The four years following the explosion were unusually cold, and the winter of 1887-1888 included powerful blizzards.  Record snowfalls were recorded worldwide.

The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, a stratovolcano in Indonesia, occasioned mid-summer frosts in New York State and June snowfalls in New England and Newfoundland and Labrador in what came to be known as the “Year Without a Summer” of 1816.

A paper written by Benjamin Franklin in 1783 blamed the unusually cool summer of 1783 on volcanic dust coming from Iceland, where the eruption of Laki volcano had released enormous amounts of sulfur dioxide, resulting in the death of much of the island’s livestock and a catastrophic famine which killed a quarter of the Icelandic population. Northern hemisphere temperatures dropped by about 1 °C in the year following the Laki eruption.

In 1600, the Huaynaputina in Peru erupted. Tree ring studies show that 1601 was cold. Russia had its worst famine in 1601-1603. From 1600 to 1602, Switzerland, Latvia and Estonia had exceptionally cold winters. The wine harvest was late in 1601 in France, and in Peru and Germany, wine production collapsed. Peach trees bloomed late in China, and Lake Suwa in Japan froze early.

The possibility of volcanic eruptions substantially cooling our weather is the biggest “climate threat” that we are facing by far.

Without warm summers and plenty of sunshine, our crops will not succeed.

And global food supplies are already stretched to the limit.  Just this week we learned that one out of every nine people in the world does not have enough food to eat.

What would happen if global food production was cut by 10 or 20 percent for a few years?

So keep an eye on Bardarbunga and the other major volcanoes around the planet that are rumbling right now.

They may just play a major role in our immediate future.

  • El Pollo de Oro

    Here’s a volcano to watch out for: Mount Vesuvius, which wiped out the cities of Pompeii and and Herculaneum back in 79 AD and is only about six miles from Napoli (the third largest city in Italy). Vesuvius is still active, and sooner or later, that baby is going to blow big time.

    Vedi Napoli e muori.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      By the way, I really enjoyed the new movie about Pompeii that came out a while ago. If you have not seen it yet, I would recommend it.


      • El Pollo de Oro

        I haven’t seen the “Pompeii” movie yet, although I should check it out. I did see the ruins of the Pompeii the last time I was in Italy. It was fascinating to see some of the ancient houses that were buried under volcanic ash for centuries. Definitely a vivid illustration of what a volcano is capable of. I also remember thinking that when Vesuvio erupts again, I don’t want to be anywhere near Napoli or Sorrento.

  • Richard

    Yes. God is not happy with the rampant wickedness in the world – In the end of Days. HE said there would be in increase in cataclysmic earthly activity at the End of the Age. There is already much seismic activity under Yellow Stone Park – said to be on top of one of the largest masses of molten lava in the World. I know HE is Not pleased with this evil anti-Christ government that is in Control of this nation.

    • Guest

      What’s astonishing to me is that He has allowed it to continue this long.

      • SolvoVir

        Not to worry my friend – it’s all going according to plan on His timetable.

        • jack

          Yes the never ending timetable that just keeps getting extended, generation after generation.

          • Annette Calkins

            Well, Jack, if He did end it 50 years ago, and took out a lot of people, say the people that were going to be your parents, than His waiting to bring what is called His “wrath” on the earth is a blessing, as your parents got to live life and produce you. If God allows “things” to continue as they are, that means a lot more oppoortunity for those who don’t know Him to get to know Him. He is not willing to have anyone die apart from Him. Don’t look at His patience as stupidity. God knows the right time to end it all.

          • jack

            That Annette is the most illogical argument I have heard in about 24 hours. What about the people in the future who will never get to be born once it all ends?

            I guess they don’t matter because it is not you nor your offspring.

            Do you lose all of the ability to make a rational argument once you get saved?

            Personally if I had never been born would it have even mattered to me what happened, since I had not been born I would not care one wit either way and the same goes for my parents.

            I was trying to explain from the last posters reply that there can never be a last person saved before god “ends everything” because people are constantly being born everyday and until the day comes that no one on this planet is able to reproduce you will never, ever see an end of this world (at least through the hand of god).

          • Joseph McCoy

            Yes, God is very patient, not wanting anyone to perish in Hell. However, He will stick to the timetable which has been set. Only we humans think it has been extended. Please don’t confuse simple minded mankind’s projections with God’s perfect plan.

          • jello

            Jack, why do you call it never ending when no one had solemnly declared the end?

    • Jus’Say’n

      But I myself would argue with the majority of so-called Christians that G-ds displeasure is not so much about sin and wrongdoing as it is about the Hard-Heartedness, Self-Righteousness and blatant Injustice that causes or brings about sin.
      The Sin of the people is only a symptom of the disease of rampant Injustice and Hypocricy in High Places! Such as the Courts!!!!

      Everybody’s adopted the neo-luciferic philosophy of “Looking out for #1”! (SELF/SELFISHNESS)!
      And that’s why G-d destroys nations!!!

      Hosea 4:1-3
      Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites,
      because the Lord has a charge to bring
      against you who live in the land:
      “There is no faithfulness, no love,
      no acknowledgment of God in the land.
      2 There is only cursing,[a] lying and murder,
      stealing and adultery;
      they break all bounds,
      and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
      3 Because of this the land dries up,
      and all who live in it waste away;
      the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
      and the fish in the sea are swept away.

    • Jack

      Sure HE did and HE wrote the bible so He must know that these things would happen. I wonder since the bible was written exactly how many cataclysmic earthly activities have taken place on this planet. Oh wait if it did not happen in the US then it does not really count. After all Americans think they are god’s chosen people (too bad Israel has the market on god’s favor not the gentiles).

      Yes wickedness did not exist 100 or even 1000 years ago. It is only a quite recent event you see that people have been doing bad and evil things to innocent people. So of course god is pretty angry about this turn of events since before now people have been relatively nice and sweet to each other and almost saintly.

      Just because your life is not touched by darkness or evil (or was not in the past) does not mean it did not occur. You just had no clue about it. We only know the bad things that are happening now because of the media attention. Although they do not report on everything bad that goes on and it seems a lot of times their attention has a biased slant to it and used to stir the pot so to speak.

      Look at the entire history of our government and you will see it has never been good and kind. Instead it hides under the cloak of a sheep when it fact our very government has been responsible for doing a lot of evil to people…Oh but wait if it did not happen to you you can’t see it and you won’t acknowledge that it happened.

      Gotta love the supposed god created human brain that is so imperfect and so easily manipulated and fooled.

            It does me….
            And I know it’s operation, how it works in the Christian.

            I know the truth when I and if I hear it.

            I love the truth.

            Jesus is the way, the truth the life….
            No one comes to the Father except through Him.

            Hows that for ‘Love’?
            Have you come that way?

            Any questions?

            Move on then.

          You can’t talk to this guy. His head is totally up his self-righteousness.

          • GSOB


            You can blog though.

          • MirrorOnTheWall

            No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.

            You obviously don’t care to show Jesus’s love to anyone, just your small-minded pettiness and pride.

            And you obviously aren’t interested in obeying scriptures such as:

            “As far as it lies within you, be at peace with all men.”

            And, “Do not act out of selfish ambition or conceit, but with humility think of others as being better than yourself.

            Most Christians get this, but the meaning obviously evades you. You just ride on roughshod over others in your pride and arrogance. It smells, bro.

            That tells us all that you are just a wimp inside who must project himself as superior.

            It takes a real man to admit that he is wrong. But a wimp desperately hangs on to his own self-righteousness, at all costs.

            In so doing, you destroy your own credibility among other believers, and make yourself an ugly, unattractive “witness” to unbelievers. The very things they hate in bad-witness Christians –smug, immature, petty, contentious, angry, lacking in compassion, mercy and tender affections — you personify that to the hilt.

            If you want to witness to others, first you need to BE a witness. Not just fire off a bunch of scriptures at others.

            One wise man in history said, “Preach the Gospel always.. and if necessary, use words.”

            “Speak the truth in Love”, otherwise it’s just so much “sounding brass and tinkling cymbals.”

            It would be best if you wait on your scripture quoting until you learn LOVE.

          • GSOB

            It’s not how much you know….

            it’s who you know.

            Which of you can truthfully accuse me of sin?
            And since I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me?
            Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God.
            But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.

            The people retorted,
            “You Samaritan devil! Didn’t we say all along that you were possessed by a demon?

            No, Jesus said,
            I have no demon in me.
            For I honor my Father—and you dishonor me.
            And though I have no wish to glorify myself, God is going to glorify me.

            He is the true judge.

        You are so self-righteous. Jesus Christ reproved the Pharisees for that sin.

        • GSOB

          Me, Jesus Christ, the Pharisees…..and Guest,

          The Pharisees perhaps meant to obey God, but eventually they became so devoted and extremist in very limited parts of the Law (plus all that they themselves added to it), that they became blind to the Messiah when He was in their very midst.

          Luke….. the kingdom of God is within you
          [in your hearts = faith]
          and among you [surrounding you = Christ among them, the object of their faith].
          But they still didn’t come to the Him

          They saw His miracles, they heard His Words, but instead of receiving it with joy, they did all that they could to stop Him – eventually to the point of getting Him killed because He truthfully claimed to be the Son of God.

          Where do you stand?

        • Glenn Festog

          First off, the person you call “Jesus Christ” was never born with, nor used said name; this Greek name was assigned in order to sell a Jewish religion to a Roman audience.

          Fraud vitiates everything. This doesn’t sound any different from what the anti-marijuana people did in the 20s; used the Mexican term “marijuana” because if they had said hemp no one would have bought their B.S., just saying……

      • NoChumpsAllowed

        Is the Lord pleased with YOU???

        • GSOB

          Ask Him.

          • MirrorOnTheWall

            You violate His word so much, how can He be? He desires Mercy and not judgement. Your pride is leading you to a real “behind the woodshed” experience with Him. You obviously don’t have the character quality of humility. And “the Lord knows the proud from afar. “Pride goeth before a fall.”

            So, before you puke up another hasty response, you better search your heart before the Lord. Judge yourself in this life, so that you don’t have to shrink in shame before Him at the Bema seat. He scourges every son He receives, and if you don’t deal with your own ugly, stinking self-righteousness, HE WILL!

      • Richard

        Thanks for catching my oversight.

  • davidmpark

    Mike, there’s a few points that need to be made.

    The food scarcity. It is possible to grow a lot of food in 2 months time. And winter hardy crops are capable of surviving frosts. Brussel Sprouts, for example, must be exposed to a hard frost to gain a tolerable flavor. And much of the farmland that has been sent back to the wild or developed was expatriated due to better farming methods, better seed stock, and globalization (not the best reasons). So, this means that areas closed down due to these causes can be reopened for crop production.

    And for urban areas there are daylight bulbs. We use them for the indoor garden area and works well off the solar cells. Expect to see a lot of greenhouses should the growing seasons be shortened. A simple greenhouse 50′ X 15′ made from PVC and 2X4’s, 7 mil. plastic and bubble wrap, plus a small heater should keep a family of 6 going for some time.

    That is interesting about the volcanoes. And that photo is spectacular!

    Well, back to doing the dishes….

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      Yes, there are some things that can be done to grow food in colder conditions.

      But I would submit that there is no possible way that we could replace all of the food production that would be lost if we have a “year without a summer”.

    • Glenn Festog

      Well, you got 4 out of 5 words right in your first line, but that’s all. What makes you think that your God has a gender? If your God represents us all, maybe He/she is a hermaphrodite or asexual.

      You do know that even your bipolar, serial killer Judea-Christian god acknowledged there are other Gods, right? As in “Have no other gods before me, for I am a jealous god.” Do you think the “other gods” will allow yours to destroy their followers because He’s got His panties in a wad? And, as long as we’re discussing a Book that’s perfectly literal, I failed to see the part in the 1st Commandment that states, “Except for my Son.” Now since “God” has the big three: Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, are you going to argue that HE was unaware that He would have a Son, or was it because such a Being (Son) was meant to be emulated instead of worshiped?

      That’s about it…, oh wait, I forgot to explain the “bipolar” part of my description. That’s where a “god” grants the “gift” of free will, but then punishes His followers for exercising it, giving you 75+- years to “get it right” and then ETERNITY in Heaven or Hell based upon that single throw of the dice. Apparently Jehovah is a Hebrew term for “Nutjob”.

      • GSOB

        And you are not a believer in Jesus, correct?

        • Glenn Festog

          I’ve met a bunch of Jesus’s, they’re all over Mexico.

          I’m not a believer in the Judea-Christian cosmology if for no other reason than, upon examination of the history and actions of the Big Three [Jew, Muslim, Christian], you people actually worship the “other fellow”. This is due primarily through a misunderstanding of what constitutes “praying” and Who hears said “prayers”. That’s because your life IS your “prayer”, thoughts as well as actions. (ie. “Lord, forgive them, they know not what they do.” goes to a different Being than “All sinners are going to Hell.” or “Lord God Almighty, destroy our enemies.”)

          That being said, I don’t “believe” in God anymore than I believe in water, earth or air; God is the Universe and “belief” is reserved for things you can’t quantify. It would probably help you if, as I did, you left society for a time of contemplation in the desert (alone for at least 40 days+-) and make personal contact with your Diety.

          Or you can continue to direct your life vicariously through others who did.

            “That being said, I don’t “believe” in God anymore than I believe in water, earth or air; God is the Universe and “belief” is reserved for things you can’t quantify.”

            This is what God says about all men about that…

            Just wanted to share this bit of truth….

            because that which is known about God is evident within them (you); for God made it evident to them (you).

          • Glenn Festog

            “Just wanted to share this bit of truth….

            because that which is known about God is evident within them (you); for God made it evident to them (you).”

            Each person is different; each message of Spirit is to spirit, Heart to heart. The interpretation of these messages, with the added travails of a minor middle-eastern tribe, constitutes the Old Testament. An older myth of “virgin birth” with heavy political redaction’s (removal of ANY Gospels that cast doubt or raise questions) constitutes the “New” Testament.

            I am constantly amazed by people who castigate the excesses of the Catholic Church and its “Papist” supporters, yet insist that for the 1000+ years they controlled said Bible these consummate politicians made no changes or additions. If the Bible was the inviolable word of God there would be only one version of it written in Hebrew/Aramaic which we too would all be speaking to avoid errors in translation.

            However, since you’ve been kind enough to share a “truth” with me, I’ll do the same. I’ve met a number of spiritual people from a number of different Disciplines and Beliefs, they all have shared a number of traits but one stands out among the rest; not one of them has EVER suggested that their Way is the ONLY WAY to God. Because there’s a difference between searching for God and looking for an excuse to Judge others.

    Dear Michael,
    We need to analyze ourselves first as to what makes us
    breathe, see, hear and perform every activity from moment to moment. Without God in each one of us and everywhere,
    there is no life on this earth! Everyone, including experts,
    is using the limited knowledge to explain the catastrophic
    situations caused by “climate change”, though a misnomer.
    Our education is not enough to understand God who is
    magical and mysterious. . Almost all your articles painted
    a dismal picture of America . Our own actions and arrogance
    over the years remained an invitation to God to correct
    what we as human beings are not capable of! We might boast of anything that we achieved Every achievement
    was the handiwork of God through the human mind.
    Unless we as citizens of this world commune with our own
    soul in each one o f us, events of calamitous and catastrophic nature will continue. God is different
    from Jesus Christ! Whatever we do today is of no relevance. The most relevant action is only to commune
    with our own soul. It does not matter for God
    if there are seven billion or one billion. Because He is
    the world`s One Father!. This expression has an implication!
    Communion with one`s soul is also labeled as “mental oneness” with God!

    • sharonsj

      Here’s my take on why it’s happening: global warming is melting the ice caps and glaciers. Without the weight of the ice pressing it down, the Earth is shifting in different places and the stress is affecting volcanoes.

      Then if you take into account oil and gas drilling, which empties oil out of some areas while injecting water and fluid into other areas, that stress is causing earthquakes and affecting volcanoes as well.

      If you think global warming is a hoax, you may change your mind when your house is destroyed by fire, flood, sinkholes, and any other disaster.

        Add to these things humans digging deeper and deeper for other activites like drawing water and construction.

  • neal

    The author concentrates only on food production declines from a drop in temperature.
    That is important but not the only problem. A freezing winter will spike demand for energy and with all the posturing about sanctions against Russia it isn’t hard to see Europe freezing if Russia cuts off the gas. That will have economic repercussions and may trigger an economic meltdown and collapse of the USD and Euro as the 2 biggest currencies.
    So not just hunger due to declining crop yields but due to widespread poverty and social upheaval.

    • Priszilla

      Not much a problem for Germany. High government requirements for building insulation led to a building boom and manufacturing of insulation materials. Energy usage for heating in Germany is lower than in England. Even with England around 5 degree winter and Germany around minus 15.

      • neal

        Germany was smart to invest in insulation (and solar and other infrastructure), but that only reduces demand for heating and energy. Germany also is but one part of Europe and the disruption to the rest of Europe will have a negative economic effect on Germany. To whom will Germany export if the rest of Europe is in recession?

          That ia where the euro and debts come in. The others take out a loan in euro and pay the Germans. And the rest of their lives they repay the loans to the Germans.

    When Jesus Christ said that “:Kingdom of God is within you:”
    what does it imply? The God in each one of us is the Holy Spirit! When the spirit leaves our body, we die.
    Yes, we can keep debating over this point again and again. But
    we don`t know is how the truth has been twisted to suit the
    circumstances. Truth is always bitter; yet we cannot avoid the truth!.. Michael himself has portrayed in number f article how
    we are influenced by the media!
    In fact, we don’t know what is happening all over the world everyday, and why America alone has to bear the brunt of

      “How earnestly I tell you this—anyone who believes in me already has eternal life!

      When your fathers in the wilderness ate bread from the skies, they all died.

      But the Bread from heaven gives eternal life to everyone who eats it.

      I am that Living Bread that came down out of heaven.

      Anyone eating this Bread shall live forever;…. this Bread is my flesh given to redeem humanity.”

      Then the Jews began arguing with each other about what he meant.
      “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” they asked.

      Later Paul says this:
      1 Corinthians 15:36

      So you see… we must be born again by the Spirit in order to be part of the body of Christ, which is Christ in you,… the hope of Glory!

      That don’t happen naturally… nor do we have it already at our biological birth…

    Not to be a sicko, but aren’t all these volcanoes cool? I find themes utterly fascinating. Best thing is man doesn’t impact volcanic activity. That’s all nature and God. Volcanoes don’t discriminate either. Rich and poor are finally equally with the spew of lava and molten ash. So if I’m to be killed off before my natural time, let it be by a good old volcano.

    In one massive barbaric belch, a large swath of life can be wiped out by one supervolcano. Volcanoes, quakes, asteroid, sun storm, nukes, EMP, dirty bomb, chems, ebola, drought, famine.. so many ways to die. Life is like a box of poison chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. Of course, there are those who took the chocolate out and “thumbed” it on the underside, then put it back if they didn’t like it. Don’t you just hate that? 🙂

    All these disasters remind one of the brevity of life, the precariousness of life, here on earth. Not the VALUE or the PRECIOUSNESS of life, but its vulnerability. You can only prepare so much, anticipate so much, and maybe that will make you a standout and not a statistic, an exception to the rule that befalls all men.

    But, there is one rule without exception. The death rate is still one-per-person. This is an absolute certainly. But you don’t have to be afraid. Just be d a m n sure you get to know your Maker. What do you have to lose but your pride, and your bad “karma”. What do you have to gain? A peace and assurance that no one, and no disaster can ever take away from you.

    Eternal Life is not a mere metaphysical abstraction. Eternal Life is a Person. And your salvation is your Relationship with Eternal Life. Get to know Him well.

    Setting aside all the heat being poured into the environment form those volcanoes, the particulates emitted by volcanoes absorb far MORE heat from sunlight than clouds do, WARMING THE PLANET.

    Nice try by the carbonazis trying to keep us believing their human-caused global warming nonsense in the face of a 17 year cooling period.

    • sharonsj

      According to NASA, volcanic particulates COOL the planet. So tell me what scientific credentials you have that are better than NASA scientists, or do you just pull crap out of a nether orifice?

      • michaelrivero

        I am former NASA myself. And don’t forget that NASA has wagered their reputation on human-caused global warming along with NOAA, the IPCC, and so forth and doesn’t want to admit it when they are wrong. I am sure we all remember how they tried to lie about the O-rings on the Challenger SRBs. It is one of many reasons that insiders like to say that NASA stands for “Never A Straight Answer.” Yet another is that the raw temperature data shows we had a mild summer, but NASA is claiming after “statistical adjustments” that August was the hottest on record (which it isn’t; August of 1934 exceeded even NASA’s adjusted numbers).

        NASA’s entire rationale for saying that volcanic dust cools the surface of the Earth is that less sunlight reaches the ground through the particulates, but this is misleading, because the light is being absorbed and converted to heat in the upper atmosphere. The total heat of the system increases as the low albedo particles absorb more light and convert it to heat than clouds, which reflect the light back out into space. And again, this is not including the heat pumped into the atmosphere from those volcanoes.

        I will give you an example of how bogus this whole global warming nonsense really is by asking you a simple question. How many active volcanoes and thermal vents are there on the floor of the world’s oceans? Don’t know? Well, don’t feel embarrassed; it’s a trick question. Nobody knows.

        Nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents are there on the floor of the world’s oceans. And if they do not know that, then they cannot subtract that heat from the world’s oceans, which means that any studies clkaiing that human activity has warmed the oceans by this and so are basically SWAGs, Scientific Wild Assed Guesses.

        Back in 2000, the headlines from the Carbonazis claimed that “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past” (UK Independent, March 20,2000). This has been followed by years of record setting snow and ice. This last winter, snow fell on the Pyramids of Egypt for the first time in over 100 years. But the Carbonazis are not ready to give up on their little Carbon tax scheme, nor is NASA ready to publicly admit their errors, so today the Carbonazis are trying to find any excuse to go on claiming human-caused global warming is real even as the winters get colder and colder, and it looks to me like this coming winter will be even worse.

        Humans are not the dominant determination of climate on Earth, the sun is, no matter how much Al Gore tries to claim it isn’t. And solar output is at a 100 year low. It looks like we are entering a new Maunder Minimum, and a repeat of the little ice age.

        Climate is just weather averaged over time. 17 years of cooling weather means a cooler climate, and obviously volcanic activity has not been a factor for all 17 years.

    What is happening around the world is to change the ingrained belief, and the belief we need to embrace without delay and demur is that the soul or spirit in each one of us is far more important for our survival .now.
    Every belief we held on to will be changed when fear grips us
    through calamities and catastrophes. We reject the truths but
    accept the twisted truths. Michael`s articles have lot of messages for the readers , and his truths do not go down well
    with us.
    Many American authors have written a lot about the spirit in each one of us and the global shake-up that is in the offing.
    God is only one for every citizen of this world, and the
    same God is demonstrating His power through various tools like earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, torrential rains, volcanoes, droughts etc. , .

  • K2

    The biggest threat of climate change is ocean currents being shut off by huge glaciers that melt and strip off from ice sheets. Ocean currents stop the world from freezing in winter and burning in summer by bringing in warm air and cold air in winters and summers, respectively.

    So the volcanoes ‘could’ actually end up buying us more time if they cool the world a little bit. Countries in an around it will be affected but the globe will get more time.

    Ocean current shutoff….now thats the one that will be catastrophic from which the world will never recover.

  • louie

    Can anyone tell me why Christians seem to be without any commons sense when it comes to the scientific explanation for natural disasters? Why they are attributing this to god. Seriously you guys are morons.

    While I agree there can be some interference with regards to the weather currently happening I can assure you god has nothing to do with it. Think HAARP, weather modification, pollution, the fact that the earth is old and constantly moving and things happen, etc.

    Perhaps Christians would be happier living back in the biblical times and then they could wax poetic about god giving us sunshine because he is pleased with us and god giving us rain because he is upset with our wickedness.

    Paganism is on the increase worldwide. Even the so called Christian West is now showing its true colors as the End Times Bablyon Empire of Bible prophecy. It’s no surprise that we are seeing signs in the earth as Hell expands to accept all the newcomers. We are all sinners deserving of Hell, but God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, gave His life on the cross as full payment for our sins, was buried three days and then resurrected.

    Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

    Isaiah 5:13-14 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.

      • jesus follower

        Tess, acknowledging that we are sinners and then placing faith in the one true God gets us to Heaven. The plan of salvation is the same throughout the Bible. In the Old Testament (Genesis 15:6), we read of Abraham: “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Also in the Old Testament (Psalms 34:18), we read, “The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.” In the New Testament, Jesus Christ is revealed to the world as God’s son, so we must believe the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to say we have faith in the one true God. John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    Here I am quoting part of God`s word:


    How necessary is deep understanding and sensitivity! Tread softly,

    yet with confidence. Be sure you know where you are going and

    why you are going there. Let there be a purpose and a plan running

    through all you do. Let there be no waste of words. Words have

    great power; use them wisely and guidedly. Have faith and confidence

    when you hold out a hand to a soul in need. You will help that soul –

    not in your own strength, but in Mine. Do all with Me.

    There is a great work to be done with so many souls in need. You

    will not fail them. Keep close to Me. Some will jump that chasm

    simply by holding your hand, another will need a rope, others will

    need a bridge. Great patience and understanding are needed. .

    Encourage , yes, but never at anytime force a soul to take a step

    it is not ready for.

    Your radar must be kept in full working order all the time – never

    switch it off. Be at peace.

    Great changes are about to take place in the whole universe.It will not

    be comfortable time. It is important that each one has no fear, no

    concern, knowing that this great upheaval is necessary before the next

    step can be taken. Remember My words when you feel these upheavals.

    Follow My instructions, knowing that no harm will befall you when you

    dwell in the secret place of the most high. “A thousand shall fall at thy

    side and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee”.

    It is My promise to all who stand firm in My light.

    These words may not mean very much to you now, but in the days to

    come it will be like healing balm to your soul. Therefore, be at peace.

    Judge no one

    As your consciousness expands, you cease being critical and intolerant

    because you rise above all these foolish, petty, human irritations into

    the realm of peace and harmony.


  • Thiagarajan TVS

    I am again quotin g some part of God`s words:


    Reflect My light and love like beacons in a darkened world. Nothing

    shall remain hidden when you are ready and prepared for its revelation.

    As the ground must be dug and made ready before the seeds can be

    planted, so your understanding and consciousness have to be prepared,

    raised and expanded before you are ready to receive My truths which

    have been hidden through the ages but which are now to be revealed to

    humanity as it moves into the new age.

    This will cause many upheavals in many lives. It will not be comfortable,

    for there is bound to be chaos and confusion while the sifting and sorting

    take place. Those who expected to move into the new age with ease will find

    that this is not the case. You can help speed things up by going with it and

    not causing resistance, just as birth is easier and simpler when there is no

    resistance and a soul is able to relax and accept what is going on , knowing

    a process has to take place – that there are no short cuts , that as each stage

    is reached it has to be gone through before the final bringing forth of the

    new into the light of day.



  • Thiagarajan TVS

    Some more of God`s words:


    There has been a release of cosmic power which grows stronger

    every day. This cosmic power, when it is recognized and acceped,

    brings great peace, upliftment, illumination and revelation. When

    resisted, it brings chaos and confusion into the lives of individuals

    as well as into the world situation. Look around you. All is complete

    turmoil. Every country is undergoing violent changes. Greed, jealousy,

    hatred and unrest of every kind are rampant everywhere. Even emotion

    is growing in intensity.

    It is vitally important to watch yourself with the greatest care. Watch your

    reactions and see that they are loving and positive. Realise the work

    you are doing as lightbearers. Realise Realise its importance. Each day,

    as you unite and send forth the light, a vital work is being done; as

    you do this consciously, it is even more effective . Never think that time

    spent radiating light is wasted, You can do this work individually at all times

    during the day and during the night – not a second is wasted. Consciously

    send out light and more light, love and more love, to individuals, to groups,

    to countries, to the world. The need is great; therefore, the need must be

    As we witness such things as the spread of globalism, the building of a one-world church, the increase of wickedness, the breakdown of the traditional family, the destruction of that priceless bastion of liberty called America, the normalization of homosexuality, the callous murder of babies, the filthy pop culture, the breathtaking increase in governmental surveillance, we become fearful, uncertain, frustrated, angry, and discouraged, but this is because our minds and hearts are too focused on things of this world rather than things above. Too often we have the same short view that “conservative” unbelievers have rather than the long view that comes from the light of Bible prophecy…

    The devil is the god of this world, and his handiwork is evident everywhere, but he is not God and he is not in control of the times and the seasons.

    I believe that God communicates through his creation.

    He isn’t going to come on down and chastise us. He is going to communicate with us as we are seeing. Through the earth.

    It was said that the nation that turns it’s back on God? So will he to that nation. It’s plenty obvious that WE have turned our back to God.

    I believe that these are his signs. Choose to take it as you see fit. But unless this planet of people comes back to God? This is it. God will provide his judgment.

    Well, I thought that this is God’s way of counteracting global warming. He’s just keeping things balanced.

  • Undecider

    These scientists are challenged for the same reason as the global warmist. They think of the Earth as existing in a bubble.

    If they considered the Earth is a small object in the vast universe, active galaxy and solar system, they may be able to factor in the effects of the other celestial bodies.

    Earth is acted upon by several forces and volcanoes act like a symptom of larger issues. If the scientists can think outside the box they’ve been confined to, they may be able to answer these questions.

    In fact, there are scientists who study the external influences and they get better results. But don’t expect your average run of the mill government paid-for lackey to get the job done.

    I am no scientist by any means but I
    do have a theory I believe may possibly be
    accurate. Since 3/3/2011 when fukushima Japan suffered 3 china syndrome melt
    downs over 1 million pounds of fissioning nuclear fuel or Nuclear Soup is
    Cooking in the Ground on it’s way to the earth’s mantle and the closer it
    gets to the mantle the more severe and frequent earthquakes and Volcano
    eruptions are happening. Sinkholes are appearing everywhere some as deep as 8
    stories! I believe there will be in the future a huge megaton nuclear explosion
    underground that will send shock waves around the Globe and further fracture
    and destabilize the Ground beneath us all on this planet.

    everyone who knows about fukushima
    are only thinking about the radiation but fukushima goes much deeper than that
