Too Much Snow Closes Ski Resorts ,Ice Pillars & California Drought Erased in One Storm (290)
Adapt 2030

https://youtu.be/uRwDTYvMOLI
Published on Jan 14, 2017
With over 10 feet of snow falling in the last weeks in California and Colorado, ski resorts closed from too much snow, highways completely cut off and with one storm, California filled all of its reservoirs again. So much for the doom and gloom of the IPCC telling us the drought would intensify due to CO2 warming and Gore told us our children would never know what snow is again.

Just stumbled upon an eerie reminder what extreme temperatures can do.  :shock:

http://abcnews.go.com/International/frozen-fox-extracted-danube-display-germany-warning-icy/story?id=44757316

Quote
An apparently drowned fox encased in a thick block of ice is on display in a small town in southern Germany.

Franz Stehle, a hunter, told German news agency DPA today that he came across the fox earlier this month, which he says fell through the frozen surface of the frigid Danube River and drowned.

Stehle had the block containing the frozen animal extracted from the river last week and put on display outside his home in Fridingen, which is nestled along the upper reaches of the Danube. The spectacle serves as a warning of the dangers of the icy river, the hunter told DPA.

It’s not unusual for animals to break through the river’s thin ice during the winter, Stehle said, adding that he has discovered frozen deer and wild boars a number of times.

The Ice Age Cometh! Forget Global Warming!
“At every moment you choose yourself. But do you choose *your* self? Body and soul contain a thousand possibilities out of which you can build many I's. But in one of them is there a congruence of the elector and the elected. Only one--which you will never find until you have excluded all those superficial and fleeting possibilities of being and doing with which you toy, out of curiosity or wonder or greed, and which hinder you from casting anchor in the experience of the mystery of life, and the consciousness of the talent entrusted to you which is your *I*.”

​High-density snow collapsing roofs and buildings in Idaho, Oregon, Colorado and Anchorage, Alaska.

Quote
Snowstorms throughout the Rocky Mountain states as well as Alaska have destroyed hundreds of the region’s weaker buildings and led to at least one death.

Heavy Snowfall Destroys Buildings in the American West   (Photos)
https://sputniknews.com/us/201701251050010101-snow-destroys-buildings-western-america/

26.01.2017 - Idaho governor C. L. Otter has signed an emergency declaration for Washington County, where over a hundred buildings have been crushed under the weight of recent snows. A Washington County man broke his leg and hip after a carport collapsed. Elsewhere in the state, a woman's porch fell, crushing her to death.

​Weiser, a small city in Idaho, saw its only grocery store, Ridley's Family Market, lose two-thirds of its roof. Weiser Memorial Hospital granted store-owner Mark Ridley the use one of their administrative buildings as an emergency retail facility while the roof is repaired.

​Dell Winegar, president of the Idaho Onion Growers Association, said that nearly 20 farm buildings have been damaged in Idaho and Oregon. Onion prices have spiked 86 percent in the region.

​"It's been a heartbreak for a lot of folks," Winegar told the Seattle Times. "It's hard to prepare for something that has never happened before."

​Other Idaho farmers, including organic-produce grower Tim Sommer of Middleton, and vineyard manager Dale Jeffers of Sunnyslope, have reported severe damage to their crops.

​The most famous structure to be damaged is the 180,000-square-foot sports center in Anchorage, Alaska, known as The Dome. The gigantic building proclaims itself to be the world's largest structure supported by pressurized air.

​The high-tech pressurization system did not protect The Dome from a roof collapse.

​In Bend, Oregon, a storage facility for campers and motorhomes, as well as the gymnasium of a local elementary school, saw roof collapses. No injuries were reported in either incident. Portland General Electric has reported that 63,000 Oregonians have been affected by power outages.

A Rocky Mountain ski resort in Breckenridge, Colorado, saw its conference room collapse. Nobody was injured, but several buildings have been evacuated as a precautionary measure. Overall damage in Colorado has been minimized due to strict building codes.

​Experts say the heavy snow accumulation is a result of both increased precipitation at lower-than-usual elevations, and prolonged cold temperatures which have prevented past snows from melting. In addition, frequent snowfalls make it difficult to clear the roofs.

​Ron Abramovich, with the Idaho Snow Survey, says that another problem is people underestimating the stress on their rooftops. "They may look at the roof and say, 'There's not as much snow there because it settled,'" he told the Seattle Times. "But it really comes down to the amount of water in the snowpack."

High-density settled snow can be deceptively thin but weigh thousands of pounds.

Japan blanketed by sea effect snow so intense that it is creating wind vorticies off the islands in the East China Sea. Tottori Prefecture received a full years worth of snow in one day. Highways cut, millions of people stranded, power outages and in Hokkaido ski resorts closed due to too much snow.

Around page 48 of this thread starts some info about "Sudden Stratospheric Warming". 

Today, article on SOTT about upcoming LONG FREEZE due to SSW.

https://www.sott.net/article/341824-Rare-polar-phenomenon-Sudden-Stratospheric-Warming-could-trigger-big-freeze-across-UK

Quote
The UK faces a three-week freeze with temperatures plunging as cold as -15C because of a rare North Pole phenomenon that triggered the 2010 big freeze and nationwide white-out. The worst cold spell of winter, with widespread snow, ice and travel chaos, threatens from February 11.

The North Pole's high-altitude air has suddenly warmed up and is set to shunt cold low-level Arctic air south to Scotland. However, the whole of the UK is set for a bitter spell of freezing temperatures.

The event, known as a Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) usually chills Scotland for two weeks or longer and sees widespread snow. It has not occurred for four years, official records show. The warning points to the Arctic phenomenon in its February to April forecast being briefed to the Cabinet Office, transport bosses, councils and emergency services.

An SSW often allows cold air to flood Britain from the east and is forecasting "colder and drier conditions" from the end of the week for up to three weeks, lasting into March. The last SSW event to hit Scotland was in early 2013, which saw the coldest March for 51 years, with snow and -12.5C lows as late as March 31 in Braemar, Aberdeenshire.

SSW events also triggered -16.1C lows in Altnaharra, Highland, in November 2010 - starting December 2010's month-long Big Freeze. Britain's record coldest ever February temperature is -27.2C, set on February 11, 1895, at Braemar, Aberdeenshire.

A Met Office forecaster said: "It is likely to become rather cold in the East, and from mid-February until the beginning of March, high pressure over the continent will gradually build. "Our weather is likely to stay on the cold side, with a lot of dry days. "Nights will bring further frost. The start of March may turn more unsettled."

The government February to April contingency forecast said: "The probability of Sudden Stratospheric Warming is higher-than-normal in February. "These events disrupt the stratospheric polar vortex and, more often than not, bring cold weather to the UK." Professor Adam Scaife added: "A Sudden Stratospheric Warming involves a complete reversal of the high altitude polar jet stream.

"This can burrow into the lower stratosphere. "The Atlantic jet stream often weakens and moves south. This allows cold air from the east into northern Europe and the UK." If easterly air reaches the UK and becomes established, temperatures could fall as low as -15C.

One wonders, of course, when such an event is going to trigger ice sheet build-up.

Also, comet scheduled to come close to earth on Feb 11 just in time for my birthday!!!
He who learns must suffer
And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart,
And in our own despair, against our will,
Comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.

Spikes On The Graph  :whistle: (Dark Star+ Comet Cluster + The Wave ?)

https://youtu.be/gypAjPp6eps

Session 23 January 2016
(L) Other questions?
(Joe) There's an alignment of five planets starting more or less now...
(L) It's not an alignment. Let's call it a display... a visual display.
(Joe) Okay. Of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn for the next month. The last time this happened was December 2004, which also lasted for one month. About ten days into that event, there was the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami that killed 300,000 people.
(L) When was the last time it happened before that? Has anybody looked into that?
(Data) It's hard to calculate it.
(Joe) Well, it would be in the news, no? But maybe the first question is: Did the last alignment have anything to do with that earthquake?
A: Yes partly.
Q: (Pierre) The reason why this alignment was a cause or partial cause of the earthquake is related to this discharge model we developed in the Earth Changes book?
A: Yes but not all such configurations are necessarily connected to such events. In the present period, there are other important energies afoot in the cosmos.
Q: (Pierre) In 1997, you mentioned that the energetic source of El Niño was some kind of energetic connection with the cosmos around 18 degrees latitude.
A: Yes
Q: (Pierre) Now, you also mentioned in 1997 that Laura should look for a spike in the graph. Here in my hand, in front of my eyes I have an ocean index graph showing that there is a spike. Right now we're experiencing the strongest El Niño since 1950. So, first: Is this spike the spike you were hinting about 19 years ago?
A: Indeed. And it is not yet over.
Q: (Pierre) We have reached a level that is higher than ever, and it's STILL climbing up. You mentioned this spike in conjunction with a 10.4 earthquake near the West coast of the USA in the Pacific.
A: Indeed.
Q: (Pierre) So, does this spike in El Niño activity indicate a 10.4 earthquake coming in the Pacific?
A: Could very well be. Notice the Hawaii aviation crash and then relate to the items we listed as being associated.
Q: (L) Well, now wait a minute. In that particular list of items... Admittedly, that also includes something about, "Ukraine explosion". Well, what we have in Ukraine is not even an explosion, it's like a human explosion there. There are lots of associated bombs exploding and military type activity. But a singular Ukraine explosion, chemical or nuclear, did not occur.

A: Notice also in that possible timeline that Princess Diana was mentioned?
Q: (L) Yes, Princess Diana was mentioned as some kind of suicide attempt. But Princess Diana is dead, so what are you saying? Are we on a different timeline than the one that was involved in that collection of predictions?
A: Somewhat. Notice that what has happened in Ukraine is worse than a single explosion.
Q: (L) So Princess Diana died in 1997, before we talked about that spike. The predictions about Ukraine and all those other things came, what? In 1994? Several years earlier, I think. And you're saying that what was predicted in that string of predictions about Ukraine specifically was not as bad as what is actually happening now. And obviously, Princess Diana dying in that terrible car crash as she did then was a lot worse than her living on and maybe having a suicide attempt but getting counseling and living her life, her children not being left alone, and all that sort of thing. So, what appears to me to be what's going on is that we actually switched to a worse timeline because of something somebody did in 1996 or 1997?
(Pierre) Between the predictions and now.
(L) And are the predictions still similar?
A: Yes
Q: (L) I mean, we've still got Ukraine having explosions, just different. We still had this Hawaii aviation crash, which was on the list. But there were several other things. So, some things could be worse and some things could be not so worse? Is that what we're getting at?
A: Yes
Q: (L) What about the 10.4 earthquake? That was talked about after Diana’s death... I had the feeling that Diana's death was an evil thing. Like if somebody did that, they changed the whole future in a negative way. What was the date of that session?
(Andromeda) It was an evil marker.
(Chu) What else was in those predictions?
(L) California, Lassen, gas explosion in the Northeast... We've been having gas explosions like CRAZY, but everywhere.
(Data) What about the supernova?
(L) The supernova was included. We just got that report about the most bodacious supernova ever seen.

{December 13th, 2015: 'Intense Alaska storm ties strongest on record'
Quote
    A potent storm approaching western Alaska this weekend has tied the strongest recorded storm to impact the region. This storm comes a little over a year after ex-Super Typhoon Nuri became the most powerful system on record to cross Dutch Harbor, Alaska, which is located in the Aleutian Islands, with a central low pressure of 924 millibars (27.29 inches of Hg).

Wiki entry on the November 2014 'Bering Bomb':

Quote
    Due to an unusually powerful North Pacific jet stream, the extratropical cyclone underwent extremely explosive cyclogenesis on November 7, owing to the energy from differences in air masses. The system split into two centers early on the same day, but the former center on the southwest was absorbed into the new center on the northeast, within half of a day. After attaining typhoon-force winds at 70 knots (130 km/h; 80 mph), the new storm’s central pressure decreased to 924 mbar (hPa; 27.29 inHg) [NOAA's figure] early on November 8, becoming the most intense extratropical cyclone of the North Pacific Ocean since reliable records began. The system's intensity shifted the jet stream far to the north of Alaska, resulting in a large mass of Arctic air invading the United States along and east of the Rocky Mountains, which caused the worst cold wave the United States had experienced since the 2013–14 North American cold wave.}

(L) So, yeah... There is obviously some kind of energetic sink there. It's sucking energy.
(Data) Did the supernova that happened in January (this month) have any effects on humanity?
A: It didn't happen in January.
Q: (L) When did it happen?
(Data) The news article is from January.
(Andromeda) I think they discovered it in June of last year – June 2015. That's when it was first detected.
{Lee Billings of Scientific American reports:
   
Quote
Quote
    Discovered in June 2015 by ASAS-SN’s twin 14-centimeter telescopes operating in Cerro Tololo, Chile, the supernova just appeared as a transient dot of light in an image, and wasn’t immediately recognized as particularly special. Only after several other telescopes piled on to provide additional observations of the outburst’s fading afterglow did it become clear to Dong and his collaborators that they had seen something record-breaking. The first hint came from a spectrum of the supernova delivered by the 2.5-meter du Pont Telescope in Chile seven days after the initial discovery. “When we saw the spectrum, we were baffled,” Dong recalls. “It didn’t look like any supernova we had seen.

    The explosion’s magnitude is so large that it challenges the current theories about these cosmological phenomena. Allison Eck of PBS explains:

        If ASASSN-15lh’s parent star shed its out layers of gas and then collapsed its inner core to form what’s called a magnetar—a dense, rapidly rotating magnetized core—then magnetized wind emanating from that collapse could have shocked the outwardly flying matter enough produce a massive explosion. The catch is that the magnetar would have to have been spinning at a rate of one revolution per millisecond—that’s 60,000 rpm—which pushes the boundaries of what scientists think is physically conceivable. The magnetar idea may not be correct, but it’s at least plausible. Meanwhile, experts are on the lookout for other explanations.}

(Data) What were the effects from the supernova?
A: Compare news to event!
Q: (L) Are you saying that it can have an effect on humanity, or it did?
A: Yes
Q: (L) But it's up to us to figure it out?
A: Yes

Trojan asteroids are common at the L4 and L5 Lagrange points of other planets, leading or following the planet in its orbit.

But detecting our own Trojan asteroids from Earth is difficult since they appear close to the sun from our perspective. In mid-February 2017, NASA's OSIRS-REx mission will search for these elusive objects when the spacecraft passes by Earth's L4 Lagrange point, en route to asteroid Bennu in 2018. Jim Green, the Director of Planetary Science at NASA, discusses OSIRIS-REx and its search for Earth's Trojan asteroids.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory: Year 7 Ultra

Quote
The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has now captured nearly seven years worth of ultra-high resolution solar footage. This time lapse shows that full run from two of SDO's instruments. The large orange sun is visible light captured by HMI. The smaller golden sun is extreme ultraviolet light from AIA and reveals some of the suns atmosphere, the corona. Both appear at one frame every 12 hours. SDO's nearly unbroken run is now long enough to watch the rise and fall of the current solar cycle. The graph of solar activity shows the sunspot number, a measurement based on the number of individual spots and the number of sunspot groups. In this case, the line represents a smoothed 26-day average to more clearly show the overall trend.

Notice the graph of solar activity on the top right corner.

Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no one called us to the land
And no one knows the where's or why's.
Something stirs and something tries
Starts to climb toward the light.

The graph on the top right of the image above ends in 2015. The current Solar cycle shows two spikes (2012 and 2015). Since 2015, the solar activity has kept decreasing. Here is an updated graph:

And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose

Scientists propose refreezing Arctic in battle against climate change

Project would involve 10 million devices and cost $500 billion US

I propose that they could achieve the same goal and save $500 billion dollars just by waiting a little while...  :rolleyes:

A group of researchers has proposed using wind-powered pumps to refreeze the Arctic.

The proposal seems ambitious: it involves 10 million devices deployed over 10 per cent of the Arctic, at a cost of $500 billion US.

Lead author of the paper, astrophysicist Steven Desch, concerned about what some climatologists predict to be an ice-free Arctic by 2030, challenged a group of his students at Arizona State University to develop a method to refreeze the Arctic.

Without ice to reflect sunlight into space, heat continues to be absorbed in the region. This, in turn, causes further warming and accelerates global climate change. While cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions is the solution various companies, researchers and governments are aiming for, Desch was concerned that it wasn't a "real-world" solution.

On paper, the theory works: pumping 1.3 metres of water to the surface would increase the ice's thickness by one metre per decade. 

But, as the study notes, there are questions: Would the pumps operate in the harsh Arctic conditions? Could the ice production be scaled over a larger area? And what impact would the use of so many pumps have on the environment? However, Desch said, it's a start to a much-needed conversation.

"We want to provoke discussion, get people thinking about the Arctic in particular, about the need to intervene strongly there, because nothing we do on the world scale is going to be fast enough to save this summer sea ice in the Arctic," Desch said.  [...]

lol exactly, the upcoming ice age will do it for free. This is just totally bonkers, I wonder how many climate scientists will lose their job when the Ice Age hits. Allthough, they surely will try to spin it as if it still man-made somehow. They have enough creativity to do so, it's their job after all.

When I go to sleep at night, I feel comforted that we have these kind of scientists out there working on our behalf... NOT! That is absolutely ridiculous. What are these guys smoking? I think it is just wishful thinking on a funding scheme that would pay them for the next 30 or so years. Nice work if you can get it. Got to spend those carbon dollars somewhere, right?

A massive, 1-mile-long (1.6 kilometers) chunk of ice has broken off Antarctica's fast-changing Pine Island Glacier, and NASA satellites captured the dramatic event as the icy surface cracked and ripped apart.

NASA Satellite Spots Mile-Long Iceberg Breaking Off of Antarctic Glacier
http://www.space.com/35746-iceberg-breaks-off-antarctica-pine-island-glacier.html

The Pine Island Glacier is one of the largest glaciers within the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, accounting for about 20 percent of the ice sheet's total ice flow to the ocean, according to NASA scientists. The immense glacier is also one of the least stable, and in recent years, the ice sheet has been quickly retreating and losing massive amounts of ice. Previously, icebergs the size of cities have broken off of the Pine Island Glacier. [Photo Gallery: Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier Cracks]

The glacier's last major iceberg break — an event known as calving — was in July 2015, when an iceberg measuring almost 225 square miles (580 square kilometers) separated from Pine Island Glacier.

The Earth-watching Landsat 8 satellite captured images of the latest iceberg event between Jan. 25 and 29, seeing the progression from the initial crack to the iceberg floating into the bay. Though this latest iceberg is about 10 times smaller than the 2015 event, measuring between 0.6 and 1.2 miles (1 to 2 km), NASA scientists said the recent break shows how fragile the ice shelf is.

"I think this event is the calving equivalent of an 'aftershock' following the much bigger event," Ian Howat, a glaciologist at The Ohio State University, said in a statement. "Apparently, there are weaknesses in the ice shelf — just inland of the rift that caused the 2015 calving — that are resulting in these smaller breaks."

More icebergs may break off of the Pine Island Glacier in the near future. NASA has previously photographed small rifts developing about 6 miles (10 km) from the ice front, and one such rift was observed on Nov. 4, 2016, during one of the agency's Operation IceBridge flights to monitor the region.

Climate change and the warming ocean have been linked to the the retreat and melt of the world's ice. According to Howat, such "rapid fire" calving is generally unusual for the glacier, but West Antarctic glaciers are eroding due to the flow of warm ocean water beneath them. A recent study found that the warming ocean was melting an ice crevasse of the Pine Island Glacier at the bedrock level, melting the glacier from its center.

These warmer ocean waters are causing the Antarctic ice shelf to break from the inside out. As such, scientists expect further calving along the glacier and have warned that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet could collapse within the next 100 years.
