We have traded the natural world for a digital copy and given … Continue reading A SPECIES IN CRISIS

Is Earth on the verge of undergoing a magnetic pole shift? Scientists say SOON

by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) This place we all call home, Earth, is currently in the throes of some serious magnetic turmoil. And scientists are now warning that we’re possibly in for a very rough ride in the months and years ahead, as our North and South Poles are actually moving from their formerly fixed points. According to a paper recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature, what’s happening is that magnetic North Pole is traveling away from Canada and towards Siberia – and it’s doing this so quickly that scientists are now having to issue emergency updates to the maps used by electronic navigation systems. … Continue reading Is Earth on the verge of undergoing a magnetic pole shift? Scientists say SOON

Pictures posted online of clouds with a spooky green glow have been generating debate. There are lots of theories floating around the internet, but Dr Joshua Soderholm, a research scientist at Monash University, can clear up a little of the mystery. “There’s been a number of theories that have actually been slowly disproven by science over the years,” he said.

TERRAFORMING has begun: “Global dimming” is a plot to EXTERMINATE humanity by terraforming the atmosphere with SMOG pollution, killing Earth’s food crops and unleashing ecological collapse

 By Mike Adams Now we come to the end game for humanity. This is it, folks: They have a plan to collapse global food production, kill off over 90% of the human race, devastate natural ecosystems and pollute the Earth’s atmosphere… and it’s all being sold to you under the banner of “environmentalism.” The scheme is called “global dimming,” and it’s a dangerous geoengineering plot to spray billions of tons of smog into the atmosphere so that pollution levels would block sunlight and halt global warming. This is literally what the mad environmental scientists are now proposing — the very same … Continue reading TERRAFORMING has begun: “Global dimming” is a plot to EXTERMINATE humanity by terraforming the atmosphere with SMOG pollution, killing Earth’s food crops and unleashing ecological collapse

The Planet Has Seen Sudden Warming Before. It Wiped Out Almost Everything.

Fossilized crinoids, marine invertebrates that lived during the Permian Period, found in western Australia. Scientists say the Great Dying, which wiped out 96 percent of all life in the oceans, was caused by global warming, which deprived the oceans of oxygen.CreditCreditJohn Cancalosi, via Getty Images In some ways, the planet’s worst mass extinction — 250 million years ago, at the end of the Permian Period — may parallel climate change today. By Carl Zimmer Some 252 million years ago, Earth almost died. In the oceans, 96 percent of all species became extinct. It’s harder to determine how many terrestrial species vanished, … Continue reading The Planet Has Seen Sudden Warming Before. It Wiped Out Almost Everything.
