Europe Going Under Water

A picture of a river flooding a road.

Many European towns are under massive river flooding.

Since 1501, the Danube River has never been as high as it is today. Dresden, Germany  had one of its worst floods 11 years ago, and they called it the flood of the century because the last time it happened was 150 years ago.

People across Europe are finally admitting that the Earth is changing and it’s NOT going back to the ways things used to be.

Persistent rains have hit Germany and Austria the worst, but many parts of the UK have been flooded for months and there looks to be little relief in the days ahead. In the Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, automatic barriers have been installed in hopes of preventing a repeat of the 2009 floods when a month’s amount of rain fell in just 24 hours, destroying 900 homes and forcing hundreds of people to evacuate.

We’re Going Under

Until now, great floods were a 100+ year or so event, but with permanent Earth changes upon us today, urban sprawl is going under water. We have sealed too much of the porous, natural landscape with concrete and asphalt; our growing populations are requiring more roads, buildings require bigger parking lots, and housing developments are crammed into smaller spaces with no trees or natural vegetation left. As ocean levels rise and more violent storms sweep over our cultural landscape, floods WILL continue to impact our cities.

Fixing levees, fortifying bridges, and constructing flood barriers are merely temporary fixes. In a matter of minutes, the power of the Earth can wipe away years of efforts and billions of dollars in “escape” schemes.

Way Behind The Times

There ARE future solutions to Earth changes and global flooding. Just look at Holland.

Human are actually antiquated – we may have amazing technology at our fingertips, but as far as our relationship with the Earth goes … we are way behind the times. In order to survive drastic Earth changes (like floods), we ALL have to change.

We must restructure our cities, our transportation networks, our power grid, and how we choose to “house” our expanding population.  Literally, we need to tear down our cities and start over – we need to build lower to the ground in earthquake zones, farther away from natural disaster zones, stop building on flood plains, and relocate farther from the sea shores.

These are all nice places to visit, but no one should live there – not anymore.

Relocating

There are simple solutions to reconstructing our cities. Many parts of Europe are already doing this, and for the areas that are flooding today, it’s your turn to start doing things differently.

Dresden, Germany and Cockermouth, UK rebuilt their towns with the same structures and in the SAME places after floods. Cockermouth built new barriers, but will either of these towns be able to avoid, or prevent, another devastating flood? No. It is happening again in Dresden today. Heads up, Cockermouth.

Sorry to have to tell you this, but these towns are going to have to relocate farther away from the shores of these beautiful rivers, or implement some VERY DIFFERENT construction designs. As the Earth changes today, we MUST admit that the same-ole-same-ole ways just aren’t going to work anymore.

… and study The Netherlands … Holland has the flood-designs down!

 

Floods Covering Many US States

Many US states are under massive river flooding.

Last weekend’s Spring winter-cold-snap has left many US states under water.

On May 6, 2013, flood alerts went out for the following states:

  1. North Carolina
  2. Arkansas
  3. Mississippi
  4. North Dakota
  5. Middle Mississippi Valley

Down On The Mississippi

The Mississippi River is currently flooding about 8,500 acres of farmland in East Carroll Parish’s Bunches Bend, Louisiana, which had a huge levee failure in 2011 that wiped out $10 million in crops. The 2011 breach on the levee’s northern end was fixed, but a gap remains on the southern end where the rising river is now depositing water. When the river reaches 42 feet, everything will be under water. The river is forecast to crest at 43 feet at Vicksburg, Mississipi by May 15.

Rains In California

Rain showers moved across Southern California on Monday, May 6, 2013, bringing much-needed moisture to help douse the remnants of a wildfire that blackened a 44-square-mile burn area in the western Santa Monica Mountains over the weekend.  The showers, heavy at times, marked a complete reversal of conditions that rapidly spread the blaze after it erupted early Thursday near the communities of Camarillo Springs and Thousand Oaks.

The fire threatened 4,000 homes, but only damaged 15 houses as it swept into Point Mugu State Park, where more than 85 percent of the 22-square-mile park burned.

And they say “it never rains in southern California.” Thank goodness it rained today.

 

 

Unusual Winter Weather Persists In The South

May 2, 2013 winter storm

Temperatures fell over 30 degrees in numerous Midwestern and Southern US states when an unseasonable May storm dropped more than a foot of snow across the central Plains  and the upper Midwest on May 2, 2013. The winter storm dumped about 18 inches of snow across parts of northern Wisconsin, and more than 15 inches fell in southern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

Trace amounts of snow fell in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, and more than 10 inches of rain fell in parts of Mississippi and Alabama.

Just A Freak Storm Or Evidence Of A Pole Shift?

This strong winter storm – in May – is no accident or freaky coincidence because anything that happens on the Earth, happens for a reason. Freaky storms just don’t appear – something triggers them.

Pole Shifts Are Speeding Up

The Earth’s North and South Magnetic Poles

The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center maintains a data set of annual magnetic north pole coordinates going back to the year 1590. After studying 420 years of north magnetic pole position data, NOAA configured that the degree of the magnetic pole shift over the past 10 to 20 years has sped up substantially[i].

The pole shifts, both the magnetic poles and the geographic poles, have remained at 400-year record highs during the 21st Century, and the cumulative effect is now beginning to cause real-world issues. At the current rate of polar wandering, there is little doubt that this will result in direct effects all over the planet in the years ahead. Navigational charts and maps will need to be constantly adjusted, and GPS navigation will be impacted, as will most modern technology.

A Mirror Image

On all of the terrestrial planets in our solar system, the magnetic poles and the geographic poles mirror one another. In other words, the poles stick close together. So, if the magnetic poles wander and shift, the geographic poles follow.

A shift at the North Pole, no matter how small a shift, will have a trickle-down effect all over the planet. This “shift” creates changes in global climate patterns, shifts in the Jet Stream, relocates the ocean currents, and creates an increase in earthquakes, volcanoes, violent storms, wildfires, and tsunamis.

So, this May winter storm was no freak accident. We witnessed an Earth “shift.”
