A NEW THREAT TO THE OZONE LAYER…?

Remember the Ozone Hole? Used to be the hot environmental topic before Al Gore and the Church Of Global Warming. In fact it’s been so long since I heard anything about the Ozone Layer that I did a double-take when I saw this item.

Being an unrepentant tin-hatter I have to link an agenda to this. So I wonder, could this somehow relate to HAARP? The infamous array at Alaska has at times been promoted as a potential saviour of the planet by rejuvenating the Ozone Layer (while others point out that HAARP could equally be responsible for it’s destruction). Since HAARP is now supposedly casting aside it’s aura of secrecy and putting on a big PR show, perhaps an engineered “OMG The Ozone Hole Is Back! Only HAARP can save us!” plot is in the making?

A NEW THREAT TO THE OZONE LAYER: High above Earth, more than 20 miles above sea level, a diaphanous layer of ozone surrounds our planet, absorbing energetic ultraviolet rays from the sun. It is, essentially, sunscreen for planet Earth. Without the ozone layer, we would be bathed in dangerous radiation on a daily basis.

For more than 30 years, the Montreal Protocol has regulated ozone-destroying chemicals, allowing Earth’s ozone holes to heal and shrink. But there’s trouble on the horizon. An international team of researchers led by David Oram of the University of East Anglia has found an unexpected, growing danger to the ozone layer from substances not regulated by the treaty.

The danger comes from a class of chemicals known as “chlorocarbons.” Dichloromethane is an example. It is used in paint stripping, agricultural fumigation, and the production of pharmaceuticals. Over the past decade dichloromethane became approximately 60% more abundant. “This was a major surprise to the scientific community and we were keen to discover the cause of this sudden increase,” says Oram.

Developing economies in East Asia appear to be the source. “Our estimates suggest that China may be responsible for around 50-60% of current global emissions [of dichloromethane], with other Asian countries, including India, likely to be significant emitters as well,” says Oram.

Dichloromethane and similar chemicals were not regulated by the Montreal protocol because they were thought to be too short-lived to reach the ozone layer. However, East Asia has a special pattern of circulation that can push these chemicals skyward, very rapidly.  It’s a two-step process: Cold-air surges in East Asia quickly carry industrial pollution into the tropics. “It is here that air is most likely to be uplifted into the stratosphere (where ozone is located),” says co-author Matt Ashfold of the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.

Trillion-tonne iceberg finally snaps off West Antarctic ice shelf, scientists confirm

Staff writers, AFP

THE loss of a huge ice sheet from Antarctica prompted disaster in The Day After Tomorrow. But scientists say the continent’s new trillion-tonne iceberg will not have such an immediate effect.

Larsen B

A TRILLION-ton iceberg which has broken free from Antarctica will do nothing to raise the world’s sea levels. But it has changed the face of the southern continent forever.
“The iceberg weighs more than a trillion tonnes, but it was already floating before it calved away so has no immediate impact on sea level,” a Swansea University research team said. It will likely be named A68.
The massive ice cube is twice the size of the Australian Capital Territory, four times the size of London and twice the size of Luxembourg. It is about 350 metres thick.
The iceberg is more than one and a half times the size of Adelaide (3258 square kilometres), a third of the size of Brisbane (15,826 square kilometres) and more than half the size of Melbourne (9990 square kilometres).

Strange “Humming Signal” Detected At North And South Poles.

Published on May 16, 2017

May 16, 2017: Unusual ‘energy waves’ are appearing on seismograms simultaneously at the North & South Poles. These patterns resemble nothing of the norm as defined at IRIS.edu. Another strange signal was detected on MIMIC just prior to these showing up. The MIMIC signal spanned the entire Pacific Ocean.

What does this mean? Certainly most intriguing. Something natural, or are the Elites up to something?

Apocalypse Tourism? Cruising the Melting Arctic Ocean

For those who think the Arctic ice is not melting

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?

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!

Martin.
