Could this have been caused by the Pole Shift, HAARP? With the unprecedented weather we have been witnessed to already this year. Surely it could not be natural? In Australia we have been experiencing large Earthquakes like never before. There is no reports of this in Australia. We need to start asking serious questions as to why this is so.

Well here in the UK we are experiencing the wettest summer since records began and its going to rain until September apparently . There are floods everywhere, but its down to the jet stream. From what I believe the jet stream is low this year so everything north of the jet stream is experiencing very wet weather. But I'm no meteorologist so not 100% sure.

There are many periods in human history where climate change and natural disasters contributed to economic/social/political changes. The 6000+ period that saw the land bridge between Europe and England collapse. The Ice Age. The Minoan period that ended their society via earthquakes and flooding. The Little Renaissance in the 12th Century that saw warming and a major flowering in Europe. The mini Ice Age from the 18th Century. And many many more.
Looks like we're seeing another one. Oh joy.

A question which warrants a one word answer. Begins in N and ends in O.


I do wonder what they teach kids at school these days.....

Edit: btw Australia always gets earthquakes. You just wait till your volcanoes start erupting (an eruption is overdue - bet you didn't even know there were volcanoes in Oz?
).

on RT news they are reporting that locals think a reservoir was opened, see link www.rt.com...




A seven-meter wave hit Krymsk in the middle of the night – witnesses Eyewitnesses also claim a 7-meter wave struck Krymsk in the middle of the night. The wave came down from the mountains, they say. The reasons are unknown, but one of the possible explanations, widely circulating in social networks, is that the water was discharged from reservoirs situated in the mountains. The other is that the wave was caused by excessive rain.

Anna Kovalyovskaya, whose parents are currently in the flood zone, says that local residents are expressing doubts that a reportedly 7-meter wave could have been caused by the rain storms alone.

“It all happened during the night. People just ran from their homes, because there was a huge wave of water, nobody warned them. Two-story houses were flooded up to the second floor. The water came on very fast. It wasn’t rain.

"I don’t know if this is official information or not, but in the city they are saying that they opened the water reservoir in the mountains above the city. That’s where the wave came from. In the city all of a sudden there was 7 meters of water. There was certainly a large storm beforehand, but the water came on so quick that in 15 minutes everything was flooded,” Kovalyovskaya told the Russian News Service.

Putin has announced an enquiry into what happened - it does look like opening sluice gates worsened what was already bad flooding with 253mm of rain reported falling in Gelendzhik. According to the BBC now 144 deaths

You are quite right, I can show you four in relative close proximity.
And they have been re-graded as "Dormant" NOT "Extinct". Last eruptions were around 4500 years ago.

About time we had a real volcano...how thrilling...

And yes, terrible disaster in Russia...

I specifically searched for this link to your thread this morning, I watched sbs last night and it was the first time I'd heard of the floods, I hope their death toll doesn't go too high either.
We certainly know about big floods and the mother showing us she's the biggest when it comes to force, so i really feel for them.
i was heartened to hear a troop of good people just stepping up to help, in any way they were able, and it reminded me of the brilliant display we all got to see from our own people down south when the shtf.
Our thoughts are with them

What flabbergasted me was the fact that about 2000 had banded together to go in the worst affected areas(they're a mess) and start helping to clean up and assist the people who for the most part have been left to their own defences/devices by their governing body.

The governing body are now saying that if you form a group (with the aim to assist people) you will be branded as against the governing body. (!?!?)

Are there any comrads and radettes who can confrim this?

We heard only a little burp from the poeple before their elections (there were quite a few people by the way peacefuly letting us know what they thought) but due to the fact we don't hear or see so well that far North yet, we are left to make our own assumptions, which is not good.

So....when your people (essentially imo is what the picutre is) step up and show the world they give a hoot about each other, because you taught them (pride of land and people which is obvious), you then go in the opposite direction and show them they are worth so little, including the time of those very well trained men and women of your forces for some inter-humanitarian effort working with your people?

Wow!

I better read the rest of the thread now, sortry for the rant, been burning my gut all day.....


East met west and south did see north x

It was found that for the Brisbane floods our gates were also not managed properly either.

We also experienced the first earth quake in 60 years where we are, but I have an eye witness to that being started by mine explosions, since he was there when they set it off, and felt the subsequent tremer whiched waved away.

Up the atherton there is a bloody big hole in the ground where one of these volcanic core's were, it's been dived (it's full of water) in into and down and around to about the 300m mark (if memory serves) it's quite a hole that one.

Our gem fields are what spewed out of the last volcanic erruptions many many moons ago, excellent country.
