Hurricane Warning Issued For East Coast Independence Day Weekend

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As if having to pay the highest price of gas since 2008 for the Independence Day weekend wasn't bad enough, millions of traveling east coasters will now have to deal with what may develop into a hurricane as well, and will certainly result in less than perfect weather conditions as the holiday weekend unrolls.

Presenting Tropical Storm Arthur. According to NBC, a hurricane watch was issued Wednesday for part of North Carolina as the first named tropical storm of the season gathered strength and threatened July Fourth celebrations along the East Coast. Negative impact to Q3 GDP? Still unknown.

 

The National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Arthur was slowly drifting north and becoming better organized, and forecasters said it could become a minor hurricane by Thursday. Overnight, a tropical storm watch was in effect for part of Florida's east coast. The Weather Channel senior meteorologist David Houtz told NBC News that Arthur will likely affect Florida the most on Wednesday, with gusty winds and showers.

 

And for those wondering how accurate the NOAA has been in its Hurricane forecasts, we present the following Bloomberg data. All we can say is: "better than the Fed"

Actually NOAA just commissioned a new study to figure out why they can't find MORE trash in the ocean.  They're so shocked they're going to dedicate every man woman and child to finding that damned trash that their models said should be floating around in the ocean like big plastic pull-ring icebergs.  

I suggested they grab their geiger counters and head for the Northern Pacific.  They have not responded yet, surprisingly.

John Berbatis says: July 1, 2014 at 10:13 am

Western Antarctic ice sheet dislodging will cause a geophysical Pole Shift.

Rotational Wobble (Chandler’s). The Crust presents the earth with an unbalanced distribution of weight, even a small (10 centimeters) displacement of the crust would cause the earth to wobble more (which ironically could induce more crustal displacement, thus causing more wobble, thus causing more displacement, etc.) Added bulges from the expansion beneath the crust would worsen the imbalance. The diameter at the equator is 43 kilometres more than the rest of the Earth’s surface, due to centrifugal forces. “In a polar region there is a continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth’s rotation acts on these asymmetrically deposited masses [of ice], and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth’s crust over the rest of the earth’s body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator.” A foreword by Prof. Albert Einstein in The Earth’s Shifting Crust by Prof. Charles Hapgood.

Seismic Intensification.
John, The information at the end of your e-mail is especially important about the “humming” noises. These are caused by shifts in the multidimensional electromagnetic pressure pattern on Earth, which gets its ‘directional shift’ from EMF (electromagnetic field)communication between the [Earth] inner core, the sun and other cosmic forces. Of course, this is not broadcasted by NASA, and so-called local officials play ‘dumb’ as to the ‘source’. But essentially, it means a lot of dimensional ‘bending’ is occurring, which is the reason why so many planetary forces are going haywire at this time. Best, Simon CC: satkins@afcw.com
Acoustic Gravity Waves (Checkout online – Dr. Elchin Khalilov)
“In both cases, even though the causes of acoustic-gravity waves are of a quite understandable geophysical nature, they are indicative of the expected significant increase in solar activity and the geodynamic activity of our planet. There is no doubt that processes in the core rule the internal energy of our planet, therefore, we should expect by the end of 2012 a sharp rise in strong earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and extreme weather events with peak levels in 2013 – 2014.” Dr. Elchin Khalilov, a geophysicist and a professor in Azerbaijan. Jan 2012

Pole Shift by John White What will happen during a pole shift. “The ultimate disaster! Enormous tidal waves will roll across the continents as oceans become displaced from their basins. Hurricane winds of hundreds of miles per hour will scour the planet. Earthquakes greater than any ever measured will change the shape of the continents. Volcanoes will pour out huge lava flows, along with poisonous gases and choking ash. Climates will change instantly, and the geography of the globe will be radically altered. If the pole shift is less than a full 180 degrees, the polar ice caps will melt rapidly, raising sea levels, while new icecaps will begin to build. And large numbers of organisms, including the human race, will be decimated or even become extinct, with signs of their existence hidden under thick layers of sediment and debris or at the bottom of newly established seas…”

Biosphere Collapse by John Berbatis
In the past ten years, there has been an exponential melting of the ice sheets and a noticeable disintegration of the ice shelves owing to ‘global warming’. The loss of mass from the underlying Tectonics Plates causes them to ascend (iso-static rebound), and this results in an increase in the intensification and frequency of global seismological activity. The seismic data of the past ten years confirm this conjecture. Furthermore, the ice shelves impede the flow of glaciers and ice sheets into to the oceans; and when the ‘polar regions’ are subjected to unprecedented seismic upheavals, these events will then cause the ice sheets and glaciers to be dislodged en masse into the ocean. This occurrence will then instantly destabilize the earth’s crust weight distribution (isostasy), and so precipitate a ‘crust displacement’ (Mag. 10+), that is, an axis change. The previous subterranean extraction of fossil fuels and water will greatly exacerbate this impending Apocalypse. Currently, the excessive amount of carbon and methane gasses in the atmosphere is causing catastrophic weather conditions, globally – and this situation will rapidly deteriorate into ‘a runaway climate’.

West Antarctic glacier loss: ‘We have passed the point of no return’ (+video) Two studies released Monday signal that five glaciers in West Antarctica are undergoing irreversible decline over the next several hundred years, signaling sea level-rise of nearly four feet. By Pete Spotts, Staff writer / May 12, 2014 The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica is seen in this undated NASA image. Vast glaciers in West Antarctica seem to be locked in an irreversible thaw linked to global warming that may push up sea levels for centuries, scientists said on May 12, 2014. NASA handout.

HAARP (the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) in Alaska is now slated to be decommissioned as the US Air Force plans to “initiate divestiture in June 2014,” according to a USAF representative in this KTOO article.

HAARP was officially shut down in early May 2013–during a contractor “regime change“–but one of HAARP’s clients, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), continued to use the facility for their research into 2014.

Unless someone steps up to pay HAARP’s expenses, the facility will be shut down.

Incidentally, HAARP has been the source of much speculation and conspiracy. A simple Google search for “HAARP” will reveal a number of theories.

Global warming trolls are hongry

 

Bremerhaven, Germany (SPX) Oct 31, 2013
The high cliffs of Eastern Siberia – which mainly consist of permafrost – continue to erode at an ever quickening pace. This is the conclusion which scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research have reached after their evaluation of data and aerial photographs of the coastal regions for the last 40 years.

According to the researchers, the reasons for this increasing erosion are rising summer temperatures in the Russian permafrost regions as well the retreat of the Arctic sea ice.

This coastal protection recedes more and more on an annual basis. As a result, waves undermine the shores. At the same time, the land surface begins to sink. The small island of Muostakh east of the Lena Delta is especially affected by these changes. Experts fear that it might even disappear altogether should the loss of land continue.

The interconnectedness is clear and unambiguous: The warmer the east Siberian permafrost regions become, the quicker the coast erodes. “If the average temperature rises by 1 degree Celsius in the summer, erosion accelerates by 1.2 metres annually,” says AWI geographer Frank Gunther, who investigates the causes of the coastal breakdown in Eastern Siberia together with German and Russian colleagues, and who has published his findings in two scientific articles.

In these studies, he and his team evaluated high resolution air and satellite photos from 1951 to 2012 as well as measurements of the past four years. In addition, the researchers surveyed four coastal sections along the Laptev Sea (see map) and on the island of Muostakh.

One example of the changes documented in their research are the warming summers. While the temperatures during the period of investigation exceeded zero degrees Celsius on an average of 110 days per year, the scientists counted a total of 127 days in the years 2010 and 2011. The following year, 2012, the number of days with temperatures above freezing increased to 134.

This increase in temperature is not without consequences. Whereas a thick layer of sea ice used to protect the frozen soil almost all year round, it now recedes in this part of the Arctic for increasing periods of time during the summer months. The number of summer days on which the sea ice in the southern Laptew Sea vanishes completely grows steadily.

“During the past two decades, there were, on average, fewer than 80 ice-free days in this region per year. During the past three years, however, we counted 96 ice-free days on average. Thus, the waves can nibble at the permafrost coasts for approximately two more weeks each year,” explains AWI permafrost researcher Paul Overduin.

The waves dig deep recesses into the base of the high coasts. The result: The undermined slopes break off bit by bit. During the past 40 years, the coastal areas surveyed retreated on average 2.2 meters per year. “During the past four years, this value has increased at least 1.6 times, in certain instances up to 2.4 times to reach 5.3 meters per year,” says Paul Overduin.

For the little island of Muostakh east of the harbour town of Tiksi, this may well mean extinction.

“In fewer than one hundred years, the island will break up into several sections, and then it will disappear quickly,” predicts Frank Gunther. On its northern tip, the island shows fluctuating annual erosion rates between 10 and 20 meters per year, and it has already lost 24 per cent of its area in the past 60 years.

Because the subsurface here consists of more than 80 per cent of ice that has formed within the soil, and since the ice is gradually melting, the island’s surface collapses as well. The scientists speak of a 34 per cent loss in volume.

“If one bears in mind that it took tens of thousands of years for the island to form through sedimentary deposition, then its disintegration is proceeding at a very rapid pace,” says Paul Overduin.

In addition, long-term studies conducted by AWI scientists show the impact of coastal erosion for the sea as well. Depending on the kind of erosion and the particular structure of the coast, between 88 and 800 tons of plant-, animal, and microorganism-based carbon are currently washed into the sea per year and kilometer of coastline – these are materials that had been sealed in the permafrost thus far.

With regard to the Laptev Sea, this translates into approximately one eighth of the organic carbon that is transported by the Lena River annually – and the Lena is a river that encompasses a drainage basin the size of the Mediterranean.

“We can, however, assume larger quantities if this accelerating coastal erosion we currently observe continues,” the scientists write in their subject-specific paper for the Biogeosciences special volume: “Interactions between the land and sea in the Lena Delta Region.” Once in the water, carbon may turn into carbon dioxide and, as a result, contribute to the acidification of the oceans: the composition of our oceans becomes less alkaline.

These studies were conducted as part of the PROGRESS project which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

not sure if you're being sarcastic or not...but HAARP signal strength has increased since the weekend over S. and N. Carolina to it's highest readings.  And as the storm strengthens some it seems it will follow a path directly towards the center of the strongest concentration of HAARP signals.  If anything, it's interesting, because if you frequently check the link below it will show that HAARP strenght is always centered around the areas of the nation where storms are strongest.  Especially in the midwest "tornado alley" areas.  It's almost always strong in the states where they will have tornado outbreaks during the summer time.

Well no one is fucking me in the ass so I'm ok with not knowing the difference.  Apparently you learn from being fucking in the ass.  So tell me, who's Ruy Lopez?

Well apparently you DON'T learn from being fucked in the ass because you still can't tell me.

Since I learn through experience, reading, and verbally.  I took it upon myself to google it.  I didn't realize the move had a formal name as I'm not "studied" in chess but play it rather well.  That's a common opening move I make too.  I wasn't aware I was copying a well known move.  I discovered its tactic through my own experience.  I'm also aware of the 5 move checkmate, though I don't know if it has a name either.  Thanks for adding to my knowledge in chess.

Though I'm sure you're keenly aware of a dirty Lopez, Felchie!

Bullshit - it was the best thing to ever happen to Obama.  He got the hug from the fat fuck that will ever condemn him in the eyes of true Republicans as being the big fat Judas.  Between that and that fat thug of a reporter, Candy Consumer, correcting Romney during the last debate, I think it caused the tide to turn against Romney.

Throw in the GW Bridge gig, and I think Christie should be let out in the pines of NJ during hunting season, or tied to a wheel in Atlantic City and give everyone a spin.

He came just short of giving Obama a reach-around when he came to N.J. - We have a Democratic Governer (and Bloomberg is essentially a Democrat) in NY, and you didn't see either of them kissing Obama's ass.  Now Christie knows what it tastes like.

Get too close to Obama and your going down.  Neither Christe nor H. Clinton are going anywhere in '16.

When I was young we never had anything like this. Everyday was a perfect 70 degrees with a tropical breeze and only rained when you went to bed. No houses had windows 'cause we didn't need them! We had sunshine, blue skies & partly cloudy days always. We never even had night time. You could just use your dimmer switch when you wanted night & snow hadn't even been created from carbon monoxide from car exhaust yet.  Birds didn't migrate 'cause they didn't have to! Climate scientists cud hardly find work! True story!

Actually it's lower than the article says. It is currently 1082ft and still dropping. Check this graph out:

http://lakemead.water-data.com/

Tomorrow, it will most likely be on this list of 10 lowest ever levels sine 1934.

http://lakemead.water-data.com/index2.php

Electricity generation stops at 1050 so a while to go there yet.

They quietly didn't mention in the article that a load of water has been released since march to "spring flood" the rivers below it. Also check the surrounding reservoirs, they are massively up, so logical that mead is down?
