Apocalypse Tourism? Cruising the Melting Arctic Ocean

Come aboard! Let’s sail the once-impenetrable Northwest Passage.

On Aug. 16, the Crystal Serenity set out from Seward, Alaska, carrying 1,700 passengers and crew, and escorted by a comparatively minuscule, 1,800-ton icebreaker. She circled west and north around the Alaska Peninsula and through the Bering Strait before heading east into the maze of straits and sounds that constitute the Northwest Passage. For centuries, explorers tried to establish a sea route here between Europe and Asia. Many met with ruin. A few stranded sailors famously ate their boots—and each other. When the Crystal Serenity emerged free and clear of the maze on Sept. 5, there were no accounts of scurvy or cannibalism, only tales of bingeing on themed buffets and grumbles from shutterbugs about the Arctic’s monotonous landscape.

Operated by Crystal Cruises, the Serenity became on that day the first passenger liner to successfully ply the Northwest Passage. As climate change melts Arctic sea ice twice as fast as models predicted, more and larger ships have made their way along these fatal shores. In 2013, the Nordic Orion was the first bulk cargo carrier to transit the Passage, hauling a load of coal.

Rates on the Serenity started at around $22,000 per person. For that, passengers were anointed, by Slate, “the world’s worst people”—for venturing into a vulnerable ecosystem in a diesel-burning, 69,000-ton behemoth. Canada’s National Post described the cruise as an “invasion” of indigenous communities. Britain’s Telegraph hinted at Titanic hubris, asking, Is this “the world’s most dangerous cruise”?

As for the Arctic villages the Serenity visited, they were, depending on whom you ask, either overwhelmed or overjoyed by the ship’s hordes of curious, wealthy strangers. The communities staged dances, hawked arts and crafts, and expressed hope that the Crystal Serenity reaches New York safely on Sept. 16. Assuming it does, Crystal Cruises plans to offer the route again next year, departing Anchorage on Aug. 15. Edie Rodriguez, the company’s chief executive officer, says that a few passengers have already rebooked.

 

I’m going to make an educated personal observation here: The ARCTIC is melting. The ANTARCTIC is growing in ice mass.

The massive multi disciplinary Operation SOCRATES has stated similar findings, with the aim being to find out why the Southern hemisphere seems largely unaffected by “Global Warming/Climate Change” while the Northern Hemisphere is affected dramatically.

I would suggest that there’s more to the picture than meets the eye, and readers sufficiently interested and motivated should do some research. Beware of disinformation though. Think critically and logically! ( And don’t forget the Geoengineering agenda.)

Real Secrets Hidden In Antarctica Revealed?

 

There is a tremendous amount of focus on Antarctica in the Alternative Media at the moment, and as usual with hot topics, there’s everything from aliens, to lost civilisations, to hidden underground bases and bunkers for the elite. This recent presentation seems to provide some clarity amid the speculation.

Who knows, there could well be the remnants of “Atlantis”  down there or hidden extraterrestrial bases, but beware of disinformation when researching!

Weather control seems like a logical motive for all the activity at the Ice, especially in light of Operation SOCRATES underway right now.

Living and working in Christchurch, “The Gateway To Antarctica”, I get to see glimpses of activity at the Antarctic Operation Harewood base linked to the airport, and occasionally get a pass to the inner sanctum for specific aircraft tours, and can attest to the tight security and the heightened activity in both military operations and “civilian” research (NASA etc).

We know many nations have “HAARP” stations down there, and whatever’s going on, there’s clearly an obsession with climate study (and probably modification).

Enough rambling from me. On with the show. (Bring your own popcorn):

Arctic And Antarctica: What’s Going On?

Image result for arctic and antarctic

Despite all the Climate Change propaganda, it seems certain that Antarctica is growing.

With the opposite pole, the facts are harder to discern. Is the Arctic ice growing also?

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/10/07/experts-said-arctic-sea-ice-would-melt-entirely-by-september-201/

Or is it shrinking ?

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2016/aug/22/historical-documents-reveal-arctic-sea-ice-is-disappearing-at-record-speed

And why are the  elite taking so much interest in Antarctica?

Is the elite exodus to New Zealand, the Gateway to Antarctica tied in with this somehow?

What do all the tales and rumours of pyramids, lost cities, underground bases and aliens amount to ?

Disinformation and distraction?

Disinformation always contains elements of verifiable fact, however, considerable discernment and healthy scepticism is clearly required:

“Step Away From The Fence And Put Away The Camera!”

Tuesday afternoon, heading into work, the drive takes me past the airport. I always glance in the direction of the US Antarctic Op. hangars to see what’s there. Usually a C17 Globemaster or an occasional C 130 Hercules. Last week the NASA DC 8 was visible.

But Tuesday? “Holy Crap!” I muttered, reached for my camera….curses! Left it at home again. I count two C17s and six C 130-Ts (The USAF ones with distinctive orange tail), and a big grey tail fin I didn’t recognise. That evening I ID’d it as an RNZAF 757-200, used for shuttling scientists and dignitaries around in comfort.

Yesterday, Wednesday 22 Feb, I was armed and ready. Took the right turn around the back road to airport, straight past the front fence of the base, parked up in the Antarctic Centre (public tourist attraction), and sprinted back up the road.

The two C17s were gone, but everything else was there, so I started snapping pics. As I approached the security gate and stood in the driveway trying to get a good shot, the security guard came out. He wasn’t smiling. I casually start wandering the other way, and see another dayglo vest and security tag emerge from a hangar and begin striding purposefully in my direction (see third pic. pic below). I grin and wave innocently, and back away to the other side of the road. The fun’s over and I’m late for work.

My supervisor asks what the holdup was? “Oh, just nearly got arrested by the USAF” I say casually. “Oh, nothing unusual for you then” he says shaking his head slowly.

It’s nearly end of the summer at the Ice, and these C130s are probably migrating northwards. Maybe they will investigate the nuclear incident that just happened in the Arctic?

Enjoy the pics guys!

2017, The Year Of Fukushima?

Could this be a factor in the Elites heading for Antarctica?

Is this article correct and the world is in dire trouble?

What do you think?

Please share your thoughts.

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

Back on January 29th we reported on what scientists were calling a ‘devastating, alarming and dire’ situation unfolding along the We… that had scientists ‘mystified’ and ‘stumped’ with sea life from Alaska to California continuing to suffer a massive series of die-off’s with no end in sight.

What was then our first Fukushima update in several months, we’ve been urged by recent news to revisit what is going on there once again after the Drudge Report linked to this story from Japan Today which reported that nearly 6 years after the devastatingearthquake and tsunami struck the plant, record radiation levels have been detected inside the #2 reactor.

As the Guardian reports, the ‘extraordinary radiation levels’ being detected now are the highes… since the 2011 meltdown. They also report the extremely high readings “highlight the scale of the task confronting thousands of workers, as pressure builds on Tepco to begin decommissioning the plant – a process that is expected to take about four decades.”

Measuring an estimated 530 sieverts per hour, Japan Today reports that radiation level can kill after even only a brief exposure, alevel other nuclear experts have called “unimaginable” and a level that far exceeds the previous high radiation level measured there, only 73 sieverts per hour.

According to medical experts quoted in their story, a dose of only 4 sieverts of radiation would kill one of every two people. They also report that 1 sievert alone could lead to infertility, the loss of hair and cataracts while increasing the risk of cancer.

And even though we aren’t there, why should we be concerned, and where is all of this radiation now going? This recent story from ENENews reports upon exactly why we should be concerned about what is happening half-a-world-away.

Reporting that US states have been hit with ‘extremely large peaks’ of Fukushima’s radioactive material and a ‘significant of amount of plutonium’ has been released for months on end, they also share proof the radiation is going all around the world and can be ‘measured globally’ with this stunner: “it blanketed the entire Northern hemisphere”.

Another sign that we should be concerned is this very interesting new story that Steve Quayle just linked to from the Daily Mail that reports that “tech billionaires are building boltholes in New Zealand”. Reporting that the ‘super rich’ are quietly preparing for ‘the apocalypse’, they also allude to the fact that in a WW3 scenario, the Southern hemisphere would likely be more safe than the Northern hemisphere should full-scale nuclear war break out between nuclear superpowers.

As the graphic seen above points out, one nuclear reactor is as dangerously radioactive as an entire nuclear war. And with the total meltdown of several nuclear reactors at Fukushima and the resultant radioactive poisons they have released now competely blanketing the entire Northern Hemisphere, is THAT why so many of the rich are moving into the Southern hemisphere?

Another recent story from ENENews reports the Fukushima calamity was ‘far worse than previously thought’ and with the mainstream media still mostly ignoring what is happening to the Pacific Ocean and to our country and much of the world from the odorless, invisible death that is continuously pouring into our atmosphere, an official in Japan has warned that was happened there recently”is a very big turning point”…and not for ‘the best’.

The two most recent stories from ENENews over the last two days report more bad news. Warning of a gaping hole in a grate under the containment vessel, they also report the hole was likely caused by melting radioactive fuel which ate through the containmentvessel. Then yesterday ENE reported that collapse was imminent at Fukushima after officials found a large section under reactor wass “unstable and about to collapse” — “Bad, bad news… Time to reconsider that trip to the east coast of Japan” they also reported.

In the 4 videos below we hear all about these recent news stories from Fukushima with our videographer in the first video reporting that things are much worse than we’d originally been told, especially for those who have consistently been getting their news from CNN, MSNBC and the ‘rapidly evaporating’ mainstream media.

In the 2nd video our videographer shares with us why he feels 2017 will be ‘the year of Fukushima’ with the disaster finally beginning to get the attention it deserves as things continue to spin wildly out of control there. Reminding us of the signs we’ve been getting recently and over the past several years, such as mass animal deaths around the world and in the oceans as shared in …, we see why Fukushima will continue to be a global disaster for at least the next 40 years.

Vast Antarctic Ice Shelf on Verge of Collapse

A vast ice shelf hanging on by a thin strip looks to be the next chunk to break off from the Antarctic Peninsula, the latest sign of global warming’s impact on Earth’s southernmost continent.

Scientists are shocked by the rapid change of events.

Glaciologist Ted Scambos of the University of Colorado was monitoring satellite images of the Wilkins Ice Shelf and spotted a huge iceberg measuring 25 miles by 1.5 miles (41 kilometers by 2.5 kilometers) that appeared to have broken away from the shelf.

Scambos alerted colleagues at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) that it looked like the entire ice shelf — about 6,180 square miles (16,000 square kilometers — about the size of Northern Ireland)— was at risk of collapsing.
