They usual are intentional or done by careless hikers/campers. 

We have fires, flooding and a volcano all at the same time. Send in those mid eastern imports they have experience in fire containment. Then again the probably started them. 

Btw the strategy is containment until weather conditions are suitable to put them out.

call Putin and have him get the Donald to send a few units to assist.

Edit: low humidity and a single rainfall is all it takes for experienced fighters to bring even the largest ones under control. 

Edit: I'm fairly certain the middle star in the belt is the trapezium ... Four star cluster forming. Which is why it's brightest now. I could be wrong tho. 

This might be the straw that finally broke the back of the Social Democrat party camel over here. People are pissed of that we got no preparation/firefighting forces ourselves. We must cry out for help from nations that the Soc.Dem has been pooping political correctness all over for years. Embarrassing as hell and pathetic.

GL, cycles, my man.  Children

GL, cycles, my man. Somebody’s children, parent, or siblings lost in wars overseas, the Great Depression was more than a newspaper article. Exploiting lower classes and occasionally each other in the upper class, rape nothing new. Weird weather? Read up on the dust bowl. At least we aren’t starving (yet) this time. Not to diminish what’s happening around us today but to recognize this time is not so unique. It feels that way though.

I guess Bethany Mendal is not liked here, must be a liberal. Too bad she didn’t call it cyclical.

I'd also point out the Bronze

I'd also point out the Bronze AGe reference that AM made to you where society got it's ass whipped. The reference to the transition between Bronze Age and Iron Age has been a recurring theme here.

Well, if you read my piece on the Fourth Turning and the astrological measurement of it, and some of AM's references, then we are not looking at a bunch of individual small cycles. We are looking at an epic cycle possible 2000 plus years long and multiple small cycles all converging at the same time where the repercussions far exceed those individual events over a generation. Comparing Dust Bowl to a global food shortage, and the possibility of an Ice Age, with revolutions happening all over the world? You can find statistics easily that we are experiencing greater number of homelessness now than Dust Bowl and Great Depression. We also saw the greatest rise in the stock market in US history after the Great Depression. 

 I don't have a good accurate historical analog to what we are looking at although AGXIIK's comparison of Ice Age's is startling. It's damn hard to bring it into your soul and imagine what this could mean for all of humanity because we are so used to the status quo and so for now it's all talk. If that should change, woe is us.

I don't know this Bethany woman to like her or not like her but she is downplaying the magnitude of the challenges we are faced with. In astrology, there is notion of vibration and the octave. What we're looking at is two octaves above any of those smaller analogs.

GL, oh we’re using that lens, where we think we’re going instead of where we are. Fair enough although I suspect Bethany was using the lens of where we are today. I can see why the article set you to posting.

Yes we do but America is not a global thinking population as evidenced but what you read on an American site. As a general rule, we don't give a shit unless we have skin in the game and trouble is at our doorstep unless you are genuinely interested in how these trends, all of them, are manifesting around the world. I did post about UK weather and snow this winter and recent Japanese/Taiwan tsunami.

Venezuela just went to barter.

Of course, all the non-Americans here could step up their sharing and provide a fuller context of what we are experiencing. But for now, all eyes on Donald Trump. I think even the Martians too.

Stack Mt St Helens was a 5 on the 1-8 volcano scale

My typo on that one Pinatubo was a 6 

I don't recall much mention of climatic changes that resulted from Mt St Helens. Unless someone was as close to the blast as you and others

GL Pole shifts came to my attention a short while ago It can move very quickly. Not sure what happens when poles shift but it is probably not a good thing The video should be illuminating

Canada. Still all about Global warming federally, though the largest province just elected a very trump-ish leader who wants to do away with that thinking. Of course his party doesn’t really care for the environment any way so I don’t think it is a result of seeing any particular light.

Fight between provinces on the west coast as the landlocked Alberta wants to move more oil through the mountains to the coast, the west coast province British Columbia want more environmental assessment before that happens, which is only seen as delay and stall to the oil wing. Really quite a row for Canada and worth looking at a few articles to see the punishments they are trying to give each other.. Has put the federal government (liberal) in a pinch as they want the oil to move but will piss off their base if they act unilaterally.

Cannabis legalization is on the way. Oct 17. Has taken, what, 40 years? I think it’s all about taxes and to a limited amount about having people with criminal records for using, which really is a petty thing. They have not properly educated us on the risk...about 1 in 100 people will experience a psychotic episode from weed if they use habitually and a large % of those will have repeat episodes which will all but destroy what they used to call normal living.

Legal weed should make for some interesting border incidents as we can expect to be asked if we’ve ever used, even legally. If ‘yes’ then don’t expect entry. Americans have no idea what it is like to be processed for entry to the USA if you are not American. I’m told by people who experienced it that it is like crossing the old Communist border in Europe.

Immigrants/refugees constantly in the news but mostly about the cost. Canada has more of a multicultural approach vs the USA which tends to melting pot. So we are less bugged that they are not like traditional Canadians. Some pokes at the USA for having such a porous border....but that’s more about getting back at USA for blaming Canada for the electrical blackout, the pilots of 9/11 and so forth, but never acknowledging the mistake. A simple ‘sorry’ will do.

Weather is more extreme or unpredictable than most remember.

Murder rate in our largest city is up dramatically. The cops have been seriously gimped by political correctness and that’s what I personally am blaming. 

Cost of housing has gone mad. Somehow there continues to be money to pay for it. Boggles my mind.

The rising US dollar is a pain. Too many items with price base $US, the USA is far and away the most frequent travel destination and multinational companies with HQ in USA perceive Canada business units as ‘underperforming’ once the money is handed over and converted...this can lead to job losses that have nothing to do with how well the business is performing (ie how well the workers are working).

Trump. We’re fixated like most of the world. Annoyed about the tariffs. The PM here will make sure Trump knows where this country stands. I don’t think Trump understands Canada and I don’t think he cares. Some concern that MAGA translates to screw everyone else versus self-improvement. Don’t see enough of Trump’s domestic policy....what’s happening with healthcare any way?

We do get facts to counter whatever negative stuff Trump says about us. Examples contribution to NATO, trade surplus. 

My personal, latest pet peeve...who the heck thinks IHOP is any kind of great place to eat? Are you all so careless about food? I’ve been twice here, please stop it.

Whoops forgot one.  The

Whoops forgot one. The Opiod crisis. Rapidly becoming the #1 cause of death under 40 and threatening to reduce the average life expectancy stats as it is expected to make the top 10 of all causes for all ages this year. On the one hand, a call for more Safe Injection Sites and on another a call to wrap our minds around a failed war on drugs, rethink and come up with a better plan than that.

Opiods, grand solar minimum, pole shifts

The video GL put on the boards was revealing in that one basic position is the universe is an infinite multidimensional system of fractal patterns. As above, so below. The minor spin ups that we see in our immediate lives are reflective of all things larger and smaller as they spin up and get a little crazy to our way of thinking. I see and feel the constant tugging from the top and bottom.

The video recorder noted that the NOAA is lying about the real mean temp of the world at present time. For purposes of promoting global warming and profits that flow from that sort of BS, the reality noted in the video is the real temp is 2.5 degrees lower than stated for the records by NOAA and government agencies. The wealthy are building doomsday bunkers for a reason People with money talk about how to preserve their wealth. 

From 6000 BC forward the wealthy were obsessed about protecting their progeny, wealth and power This is in their DNA. They listen and respond to the signals that indicate there's a strong possibility of Hard Times. There are doomsday builders who are constructing homes and shelters for hundreds of families. Kind of like termite mounds for rich people.

Temperature fabrications show the Grand Solar Minimum is in effect, producing extremes of weather; exceptional highs, substantial lows, droughts, floods, high winds and early frosts and snows. For hundreds of years the powerful lied to the people about changes in the weather, if for no other reason that they needed to keep the people in a state of ignorance. If the people knew what was coming, all hell would break loose.

The large up and down cycling in temps is not something that one regards as a global cooling event because these weather cycles don't make sense in the face of a major cooling trend. What might appear to be a real trend is actually an anomalous weather event.

The wind and weather patterns move slowly as do the surface and deep sea ocean currents and flows, thus what might appear as a large warming trend is actually a normal response to cooling trends in another part of the world. Heat is moved around world, showing up as a heat wave and droughts in somewhat isolated areas. But the cooling trend does make itself known over a period of a few years to a decade. When it arrives it does so with clear and present evidence that cold is here. Agriculture is hit first and hard as it takes a gigantic down turn

An increase in highly energetic cosmic rays as well as changes in the magnetosphere will auger in even more substantial changes. Solar weather and CMEs can stun us with their severity as the grid is shaken and taken down. All these tend to come in waves and increasing severity, exacerbating the cooling trend. I hope we don't see a Level 7 volcanic eruption any time soon. That will be the cap stone to the solar minimum

Opiods are indicative of how hard we are being hit by things we cannot see. Millions dope themselves into unconsciousness to avoid the pain of awareness. And right now it is painful to be aware.

Crap, I killed my Sunday morning buzz. Sure chose a bad time to stop sniffing glue

About 4 years ago I read

About 4 years ago I read where the weather agencies had changed and were changing the locations of their weather stations in an effort to 'prove' that global warming was real. Many of the locations were changed from more rural type of areas to city or populated areas, and we all know that cities create their own miro climates and usually much warmer than the surrounding rural locations.

As to the Opioid crisis, follow the money. The pharmaceutical companies have been kicking back awards to doctors who meet increased prescription criteria on the percentage of their clients who are using drugs, including Opioid. Once you get people hooked on life maintenance drugs or hooked on Opioid you have clients for life and the profits just keep rolling in. Yes our physicians are complicit in this because of their greed. The physicians get the continued visits and the pharmaceutical companies get the continued sales. The insurance companies make sure the dollars continue to flow.

Legal weed carries it's won issues including in the US the ability to own firearms. If you are a user of marijuana you cannot legally buy and own firearms in the US. All of those folks who have medical marijuana cards or use recreationally (legal in many states now) are subject to this firearms issue. Legalization of pot is just another income stream for the governments.

Sierra skier, I had no idea

Sierra skier, I had no idea about that tweak of the law. Curious that it hasn’t kept up with the times. Being stoned or drunk is foolish mixed with firearms but simply using one or the other shouldn’t make a difference to owning.

AGXIIK yes the desire to escape/get numb does say something.

Oh, I didn't know that there

Oh, I didn't know that there were a connection between Orion and Sirius. I saw Sirius as a very bright star all the way back from Spain after my vacation in Marbella. Were the 33 stuff took off or got my attention:

A 5 pointed star, 5=2+3. Tomorrow is the 23rd of July named after the Roman emperor Julius Ceasar that got stabbed 23 times. July the 23rd is also Sumerian and Egyptian new year. 

A lot of stars lately that aligns with abguy's crop field stars, strange coincidence ...

The hunter Orion with his dog Sirius out to slay a Taurus?

Change From Julian to Gregorian Calendar?

After the calendar was changed so many times, how can any cycle claim accuracy to a specific date?

It is federal law. The question is on the 4473 form you must fill out for a firearms purchase and/or transfer. "Are you a user of or addicted to,,,,,,," or something along that line.

Yes firearms and intoxification do not mix well at any time. It is the classification of Marijuana the feds give because of the pharmaceutical companies lobbying 90 years ago that causes the problem.The federal law overrides state pot laws making it still illegal in the eyes of our ever knowing government.

GL - AGXIIK - Happy Now - S Skier - and, Solsson et al

Let us all gather by the river -- another Sunday has visited us with the leavings from 7 days (and, NO, it's not in May...yet).

The "size" and "frequency" and "other factors" of these "World event" forest fires have to be examined for possible GSM influences this time around on our "different circles/paths/cycles tending to "coincide or intersect" THIS TIME vs "other times" prior to our current consciousness... (In times gone past - everything was so much simpler...there was "yesterday" [when Billy blew an engine racing Scott on Middle Rd], "today" [when we didn't have enough money for BOTH gas and beer], and "maybe next week" [when we would all go to the Winter nationals and watch the Snake beat the Mongoose], with only a fleeting image of the "now" [when a double-burger from Frosty's meets our pie hole with sauce].).

Suffice to say: Some of these epic blazes have been sent intentionally by 2-legged critters not from the Country. This same statement can be proven accurate in "other lands" as well.

I note that "I think" something was finally done about "how" we in America are now going to "fund" the fighting of such conflagrations... I think this was included in that last "omnibus spending bill" - but, since that ran 2,300+ pages, no one has got that far in their reading and reporting as yet.... about the time we run out of Type 1 management teams to send out.....someone will tell us how it is "now".... I have noticed a "much earlier commitment" of large forces and air assets on "back-woods fires" [those which have no roads or goat trail within 20+ miles of their location]. True "smoke jumper" events, eh?. I also note: that after 20-25 years, we finally have ONE B-747 slurry bomber listed and being used, along side those 3 DC-10's out of soCal... The transition to New Gen slurry bombers is now nearing 50% of the fleet - again, "I think" -- which means more "pure jet" operations, with higher payloads than before... I don't know what is happening with the SEAT fleet/series... There also seems to be more Type-2 helo's under contract...for bucket drops via long lines.... nothing like a 700gal to 1,000 gal "shower", eh?... I think the "AJ's" down in California may be the last of the "round engines" flying on fires... And, I think, our total MAFF's fleet remains at 8 ea C-130's with some in Wyo and some back in the east.

I digress... The real point I wished to make... In the past GSM's, it was particulates of ASH which provided the "reflection" of the sun's energy that triggered deep-event GSM's... Perhaps, thanks to our unwashed masses of 2-legged critters, this spin around the arm will be a simple "smoke/ash" based deepening...eh? Some thing to remember is that EVERY YEAR nearly 1 mil acres of ALASKA goes up in smoke...these are so far in the outback/bush -- they only fly mapping missions once per week or less...Unless it is deemed a hazard to life or air travel (a BIG ISSUE in that state)...This is like the "norm" or "average" planet atmosphere load for Northern hemisphere "summer"... This is the known bad actor hemisphere for GSM crop failures and loss of life. Solsson - I know what you are going thru over there and the problems brought on by lack of leadership in Govt...we were there for 8+ years recently. Only YOU, the PEOPLE can change this... get out the vote, or get out the pitchforks and torches - change is needed! (They call us infidels; but, our original leader could and did walk on water - their's never did nor never could!).

That issue of "re-locating" weather sampling points/locations first came to light during the early/mid 1990's and had been happening for a "few years" even then... This movement into massive heat islands (cities) was done mostly by early "warmer's" buried within our EPA/NOAA/NWS clan of hand-wringers....ie: it was NOT a govt/country wide program...it was more like the "water cooler crowd" telegraph behind the scenes. But, this was long-enough in place, that come 1999 and the "hockey stick" graph....a "quick glance view" of data would tend to "agree"... Which was "enough" for our crippled and wounded media types.... cue the little boy crying: The sky is falling....etc.!! Right along in here, there were massive "changes" made in the raw data sets of temp's -to insure that any "deeper looking" would find "positive support" of these claims! To wit: We have been duped and had to the max now!... This "time delay" in seeing the real facts, and allowing time for meaningful changes to how we feed the blue marble daily, has sealed the fate of around 20-30% of the worlds' population....ie: FOOD is the big deal behind GSM, next to water -- clean water. With a "cool trend" or outright mini-ice age, water is not usually a problem - as long as you have "energy" for "heat".... but, FOOD, is another issue entirely.

BTW: A side point here: Today's HISTORY/TEXT books are not the true deal anymore! IF you want to "learn" - then, you need to "reach back" thru used book stores at least 30 years for undiluted truth in/of the past...say thank you to the NTA and other such narrow brained types for clouding the truth and teaching our young untruths!...not to mention screwed up math and total lack of ethics! The commie's invaded our schools back in the 1920's/30's....we have some serious house cleaning to do - soonest!

And, BTW: for GL: my mother was born in 1911 - my dad, in 1901.... you might say: They saw it all.

Another week as flashed past our eyes... I must say, a lot of us had a lot to say these past 7 days... the average week has been 6 to 8 pages here on DOTS...we just logged 15 pages. As I started with a "river" reference, keep it up, folks, this 'ol river keeps on'a flowing past all of us...I just happen to visit and sample on a weekly basis now.

Another week of healing...in us old folks, some "hurts" seem to migrate - what was "here" is now over "there" in some cases... but, progress is being made. I'll say it again: IF anyone of you is going in for open chest/heart machine aided surgery -- DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST... There are many things they never mention... Check up on "Sundowner" and "Pump-Head" terms, ref: going loonie tunes after surgery, mostly during the night times. This is like 1 in 5 or so...a very "real" issue for those affected! Check-6 and keep stacking!
