KILAUEA, VOLCANOES AND THE GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM 6-17-2018

In addition to everything else going on right now, in terms of human folly, we are also dealing with natural cycles impacting human life. Here is the link to a live view of the Kilauea crater/caldera. My view is there is now a fifty percent chance of a volcanic eruption at either the expanding crater, or fissure eight forming a volcanic crater.

Here is a link to the latest from Grand Solar Minimum Update for 6-17-2018 with Diamond of Oppenheimer Ranch.

It includes video of the ongoing eruptions in Japan, the new eruption on the Galapagos Islands, and the continuing collapse of the caldera at Kilauea. I will remind everybody that volcanic eruptions spew large amounts of atmospheric aerosols, ie dirt and rock, toxic gases, and other particulate matter high into the stratosphere. Once there, all this “volcanic stuff,” circles the globe, and blocks sunlight. It is the volcanic version of the famous “nuclear winter.” We have multiple, historic examples, like 1816’s “year with no summer,” or Iceland’s volcano eruption of 1783. It was the 1783 Iceland eruption that resulted in several years of crop failures in Europe. The final result of that particular eruption was the French Revolution of 1789. At any rate, to quote GSM, ” it will lead to the collapse of Empires.” We already seeing crop damage, from hail, cold and wind. I highly suggest you add to your food stockpiles.

In my case, although I see what is happening, and have for several decades, well let’s just say, I am going down with the Empire. I will leave with three quotes on death, which is what we all face, some sooner, and some later. Bluntly put, what we called the “mass die off,” way back in the much quainter times of pre Y2K, is soon to start. It may result from this new “Disease X,” and a global pandemic, or it may result from mass starvation from agricultural failure from the now underway Grand Solar Minimum.  It is upon us, to quote Denathor, Steward of Gondor in the Lord of the Rings triology, to Merry Pippin, “Go and die as you see fit.”

The first quote is: The Man Who Knows His Fate Knows No Fear. Lord Kageshita of Japan.

The second quote is: If you fear death, you are already dead.

The third quote is: To Live the Inferior Life is Worthless.

The fourth quote is: If you are not afraid of death, you are in control of life.

I am saying that natural, ecological and solar cycles are now starting to impact daily human life on Planet Earth. I also suggest you prepare yourself for what is now starting to happen, including the spiritual aspects.

HURRICANE FOR TEXAS GULF COAST UPDATE 6-10-2018

If you go to the link listed below, you will see a circular wind pattern starting to form up off the Texas Gulf Coast. Although neither the NHS, or Tropical Tidbits, is showing this, the wind flow charts are.

VOG, LAZE AND THE BIG ISLAND IN HAWAII 6-3-2018

Further information about the Kilaeua Volcanic Eruption indicate the situation is about to get worse, although not for the reasons certain hysterical, and yes that is the correct word, people are saying. I will repeat the conditions needed to have the Hileau Slump fall into the ocean and create a “Mega-tsunami,” are on par with an asteroid impact. My bottom line is don’t sweat it. On the other hand, there are some clear and present dangers coming to the fore. The first is VOG, or air pollution caused by the  various toxic gas, steam and particulate matter being spewed out, by both the crater eruptions, and the stuff coming from the fissures. This includes the famous “Pele’s Hair.” Well, blog readers, since I personally experienced the Mount Saint Helen’s eruption, way back on May 18th, 1980, me knows of that which I write. The threat level from breathing either VOG, or LAZE, is high, as in it will kill you if you don’t take it seriously.

The situation now, as of around 1300 PST on Sunday, June 3rd of 2018 is both VOG and LAZE are about to become a serious, potentially life threatening danger to people living on the Southern Half of the Big Island. The reason being in the link below.

PAHOA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) – A lava flow that cut off access to several coastal communities in lower Puna on Saturday continues to advance, and is already believed to have destroyed several homes.

MORE

Sunday morning the National Guard confirmed that the Hawaii County Fire Department airlifted three people trapped by lava from the isolated areas of Kapoho and Vacationland. No injuries were reported.

First responders are actively conducting search and rescue missions in isolated areas.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency confirms fissure 8 is feeding a large channelized flow traveling along Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Road.

Officials say lava has crossed Government Beach Road and Highway 137.

The flow is moving downslope toward the ocean into Kapoho Beach Lots and as of early this morning had reached Kapoho Kai Road to the south and as far east as Iliani Road.

USGS geologists say as of 7:30 a.m. Sunday, lava was about 430 yards from the ocean between Kapoho Beach Road and Kapoho Kai Drive. The flow front is reported to be about half a mile wide. 

On Saturday evening, Senator Kaialii Kahele says while on an overflight he witnessed trapped residents in Kapoho and Vacationland who were directed to go to Isaac Hale Beach Park in Pohoiki — a designated landing zone for evacuation.

The flow also apparently evaporated Green Lake, which was the largest freshwater lake in the islands.

About 9:30 a.m. Saturday, the flow originating from fissure no. 8 in Leilani Estates crossed Highway 137 at Government Beach Road, cutting off access to Kapoho and Vacationland.

That’s what authorities had feared for days — and why they’d urged residents in the communities to evacuate while they still could.

By about 10 a.m., lava had crawled into Kapoho Crater, creating a huge steam plume when it hit Green Lake.

The plume had ceased by 1:30 p.m. and an aerial assessment revealed the lava appeared to have filled the lake and evaporated all the water. Green Lake is believed to be four centuries old, and at least one study put its depth at 200 feet in spots.

“It was burning homes, it was burning farms, and just laying destruction in its path with a direct line for Vacationland and Kapoho Bay,” said state Sen. Kai Kahele, who conducted an overflight of the area on Saturday night. “I would be surprised, if it continues on its current speed, that it hasn’t reached the Kapoho Vacationland shoreline by the time the sun comes up.”

The devastating flow can all be sourced back to fissure no. 8, which has been creating fountains of lava for days and sending lava along Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Road, with two flow fronts.

Government Beach Road, between Kahakai Boulevard and Cinder Road, is open to Waa Waa and Papaya Farms Road residents only, but they must have official credentials.

Meanwhile, a mandatory evacuation zone remains in place for about half of lava-ravaged Leilani Estates. Officials began enforcing the new rules Friday.

The evacuation order covers the area from Pomaikai Street to Malama Street, where huge fountains of lava, ongoing flows and toxic emissions are making conditions unsafe.

“Leilani (Estates) is just so treacherous with the fissures opening up,” said Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, at a news conference Saturday. “That’s the reason we chose to shut it down.”

Magno also said that the few people who have decided to stay behind, despite multiple warnings from officials and first responders, are living in less-than-ideal conditions. “Cells are out, landlines are out, there’s no power, municipal water is out,” Magno said. “You’d have to be pretty self-sufficient.”

Amid the ongoing eruptions, which started a month ago Sunday, the Big Island continues to see visitor cancellations.

Ross Birch, with the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau, said the biggest impact of the tourism slump is on small businesses. “The immediate lack of (cruise ship) port calls in Hilo and Kona, that hurts the mom and pop operations,” he said. “If you have plans, definitely keep them.”

Geologists have said there’s no telling when the eruptions will end. That uncertainty — and the ongoing destruction — is leaving residents on edge.

Heath Dalton and his family lived in Leilani Estates. They lost everything to lava.

“Their baby blankets are gone, I didn’t grab it,” he said. “If I had known that was the last time I was going to see my house I think we would have done things differently.”

The timing couldn’t be worse. Their daughter turned 5 Saturday — and all her presents burned.

The mandatory evacuation order for parts of Leilani Estates comes amid ongoing vigorous eruptions, which have taken out dozens of homes in recent days. On Friday, authorities put the number of homes claimed by lava at 87.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologists say the lava fountaining from fissure no. 8 is the hottest they’ve ever detected in this eruption and the flow it’s feeding is capable of moving upwards of 600 yards per hour.

Leilani Estates evacuees say they understand the reasons behind the mandatory evacuation, and say they appreciate the county’s work in recent weeks to allow them to get into the subdivision during the day to cart out belongings and pets.

“I do think that it is appropriate,” said Wendy Klepps, whose house is near the geyser of lava shooting out of fissure no. 8.

“Most of us here in Leilani, we’ve left. We know the danger. We’re respecting what we were told to do from the beginning and we’ve vacated what we can as we can. We’re just being responsible.”

Big Island Mayor Harry Kim said the order was necessary to keep people safe.

“I can no longer afford to put residents at risk,” he said, at a community meeting this week. “I can no longer afford to put DOCARE, police, fire, national guard to go banging in the dark of a neighborhood they don’t know to say you must get out now.”

KILAEAU UPDATE 6-2-2018

I have been following the ongoing volcanic eruption on Hawaii’s Big Island the last month or so. My opinion is we are going to see what I call the historical Hawaii eruption. We will see fissures opening, both on land and under the ocean. We will see ongoing lava flow. It is magma underground, and lava once it erupts. It is clear there is still a vast amount of lava, some sources say 98 percent, which could drain from the caldera. It is also a fact we now have a vent that is 120 acres wide, up from 12 acres a month ago. This vent is inside the crater, which is inside the caldera at Kilaeua, and is now blocked, which may lead to further eruptions of toxic gas, atmospheric particulates, ie rocks and dirt, thousands of feet into the air. On the other hand, things may calm down over the next few days. At this point, you roll the dice and you take your chances. We are also seeing increased volcanic and earthquake activity all around the Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is a giant circle that starts in New Zealand, Indonesia, Japan, Alaska, and then all the way down the coast to Chile in South America. He starts talking about Hawaii at 13 minutes in.

The link below is a one hour video from Dutch Sinse that covers all of the above.

WHY WE PREPARE FOR TSHTF SCENARIOS 3-24-2018

When people look at the current global situation, they ask two questions: what should I expect, and what should I do? So, here are some thoughts on the subject, and some suggestions I found.

Here is the link to what we can/should expect in any fecal material hitting the rotating blade situation.

 As ‘Final Blocks Of Tyranny’ Are Cemented Into Place, Creepy Feeling Of Impending Doom Spreads To ‘Deep State’

– What Do They Know We Don’t Know? Prepare Now For TEOTWAWKI Or Forever Hold Your Peace

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

Here is what to expect.

With the Examiner story showing that a ‘mass awakening’ to impending disaster is happening at least with those who are paying attention in Washington DC, Survival Dan asks a great question in his new story: “What will the end be like for me if I don’t prepare?”

With that question partially answered in what we’re now witnessing in the total collapse of socialist Venezuela where liberal policies of mass destruction have led a trail of death and starvation across their country, think about how your life would be with:

1. No clean water coming out of the faucets to drink.
2. No hot or cold water to shower, bathe with or wash your hands.
3. No washing machines or dishwashers to clean your clothes or dirty dishes.
4. No flushing toilets.
5. No heat or air conditioning, not even fans.
6. No light at night.
7. No grocery stores or home-delivered food, no restaurants, no food period.
8. No trash pick up of waste that will mound up and collect strong diseases.
9. No medications, especially antibiotics, or simply over the counter remedies either.
10. No communications; no internet, no TV, no radio, no clue what is going on.

Here are some links with things you can do NOW to prepare.

I hope these videos give you some ideas of what you need to do.

TRUMP OKAYS CHINESE CHICKEN IMPORTS 5-13-2017

About the time Trump does something correct, like sack the traitor Comey, he then does several things wrong, like meeting with the war criminal Henry Kissinger, or opening the USA to imports of toxic Chinese food. My opinion on Comey is buried on this site, from about July of 2016 I think, so I have no issue with Trump sacking that scumbag, nor do I find the hysterical Democratic reaction to it anything but comic entertainment. I was in the US Army back during the original “Saturday Night Massacre” with Nixon and Archibald Cox, so to compare Trump firing Comey to Nixon firing Cox is just another example of Marxist folly.

Trump is willing to allow the import of food products from a China that has produced multiple examples of toxic, lethal food and drug products that have KILLED PEOPLE. This ranges from toxic pet food, toxic milk products, toxic blood pressure medicine among other things. And Trump now wants to import “cooked poultry” and unleash this Chinese filth on grocery store shelves. Trump has gone over the line on this for me: I am definitely off the Trump train. The combination of allowing toxic Chinese food products to be sold in the US, along with a brazen Oval Office meeting with a WAR CRIMINAL LIKE HENRY KISSINGER IS SIMPLY TOO MUCH FOR ME. Kissinger is the one who sold out South Vietnam, the Kurds in Iraq, and the people on East Timor.  Kissinger is personally, directly responsible for creating policies that led to the deaths of millions of people in South East Asia, and Iraq for starters. For Trump to meet with him, at the White House is intolerable to me. Face it, Trump is now full neo-con warmonger mode and has sold out to the Deep State.

Anybody who buys and eats ANY Chinese food product is taking their life in their hands. If you don’t believe me, then do some research on how many people Chinese food and medical products have killed over the years. In fact, the idea of importing chickens from the place where the bird flu began is the kind of thing only Trump would think of. I mean are you going to trust you, or your families lives, to Chinese food inspectors and quality control? Seriously? Trump just okayed Chinese food products to be sold when he knows China produces such food products on toxic, contaminated soil, using toxic water, and under conditions of maximum filth and disease. People, why do you think it is China where the bird flu began? It is because they are where the pollution is, the corruption is, and the filth is. You are going to eat a cooked chicken, grown in a filthy, disease ridden “farm,” and processed in a plant full of bacteria and virus? Well, it is called the Darwin Award for a reason. Consider yourself warned, assuming Trump has them even label the “processed poultry” as made in China. All this means for me is I will be even more diligent regarding so called food products from China. As for Trump, I think the Marxists are going to hound him to death and pull him down like a pack of wolves on a Bison. If all I can get out of him is some more conservative judges, some pedophile investigations, and some EO’s repealing the worst of Obama’s folly, then that is the best I can hope for. Trump is no different than Hellary on Syria, Afghanistan, Ukraine, and will likely bait Little Fat Boy into a Korean War. All in all, Trump has fallen prey to his New York City cabal of Kushner and Ivanka, the banksters, Wall Street Whores, and assorted globalist stooges with little prospect that will change. Just don’t eat the Chinese chicken, realize Trump is a loud mouthed, ego driven, New York City huckster, and we will at least have fun until the end happens. Trump is still better than Hellary, but he has proven to be a major sell out  on so many levels.

CALIFORNIA’S ONGOING WATER CRISIS 2-23-2017

First, I am always happy when my doomer predictions turn out to be in error. Second, the full scope and scale of this ongoing water disaster remains to be seen. Having lived through the Great Portland floods of February, 1996, I can tell you plainly it can/will get worse in terms of flooding.

We have apparently dodged the immediate bullet in terms of the collapse of the Lake Oroville spillway, at least so far. Unfortunately, out of the 12 dams and reservoirs in California, seven of them are now over 90 percent full. The Don Pedro one, the one that flooded San Jose, was a staggering 98 percent full before they opened the spillway, again for the first time in over a decade. This led to the botched, does California do any other kind, evacuation of 50,000 people in San Jose and large-scale flooding. The fact is the foreign press, especially the British press, has done an outstanding job of covering the significant flooding damage downstream. It is a fact that multiple cities have flooded; it is a fact that multiple highways, freeways, rail lines and other roadways flooded, been cut and severely impacted evacuation routes.

It is also a fact that the snowpack levels in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern and Central California are at historic levels, as in between 150 percent, and 200 percent of normal. The snowpack is measured in FEET now. Obviously, this snow is going to melt, and how and when it does will be the decisive factor for California. If we get a situation like what happened in Oregon back in 1996, which was heavy rain, warm temperatures and rapid snow melt, we will have massive flooding of the prime agricultural areas in California, and major transit corridor disruption. For example, it might be a good idea to stock up on Almond milk, since most of the US Almond crop is grown in California orchards that are now either flooded, or in danger of being flooded. If that combination of factors happens at the same time, we will be looking at hundreds of billions of dollars worth of economic damage to the Agricultural industry.

At any rate, events in California are certainly, pun intended, in a fluid status at this point.

HERE AT THE END OF CALIFORNIA 2-16-2017

We are now at the same point Frodo was in after Gollum bit his ring finger off. Frodo fled out the collapsing walkway on Mount Doom and ended up on a rock platform surrounded by molten lava. And so here we are, today, now and at the end of California. The end of modern life in this farce known as the Marxist Republic of California. The place where illusion is reality, and the place where generations of bad decisions will finally unleash the consequences long feared. Here we are, amigos and neither God nor man will save us from our folly.

Here is my brief assessment of exactly what the real issues are related to the imminent failure of the Oroville Dam and the end of modern California.

The only reason the so called “emergency spillway” was put in was to check off a box on a piece of paper on a clipboard. Further, it was NEVER INTENDED TO BE USED, EVER, AT ALL. Now, when you put in an emergency system that you never intend to use, and thus rely on a backup system that is DEFECTIVE AND KNOWN TO BE DEFECTIVE I REGARD THAT AS ACTIONABLE. It is CRIMINAL OFFENSE AND IF PEOPLE DIE DUE TO THE FAILURE OF THAT EMERGENCY SYSTEM WE ARE LOOKING AT NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE OR MANSLAUGHTER.

There are three, and only three, questions here and now.

Question one is will the emergency/secondary spillway system be used, or will the water level rise to 901 feet and flow. The answer to that is YES IT WILL. It is INEVITABLE FOR THE WATER TO REACH 901 FEET AND THEN INEVITABLE TO FLOW.
Check disaster box one.

Question two is will the so called “emergency spillway” FAIL WHEN QUESTION ONE HAPPENS. THE ANSWER IS YES IT WILL BECAUSE IT ALREADY DID FAIL, OR NEAR FAIL, WHEN “THEY” TRIED IT THE FIRST TIME.

QUESTION THREE is what will happen when one and two happen. The answer is a 30 foot high wall of water will roar down the Feather River Valley towards Oroville, Sacramento, and San Francisco Bay. The entire Southern California region will lose 25 to 50 percent of its fresh water supply. This means both water volume and water pressure will fall AND THAT MEANS REDUCED FIRE FIGHTING ABILITY IN LOS ANGLES.

So, anybody here pick the above apart. Please show Doomer Doug where I am WRONG in what I have written above?

BLACK SWAN EVENT WARNING! THE DAM/SPILLWAY WILL FAIL. THE FAILURE WILL HAVE THE ABOVE RESULTS.

The political results of that will be devastating for the liberals. NO matter how they spin it, they will be held accountable. When the liberals can’t get water out of their taps they won’t blame Trump, they will blame Governor Moonbeam.

HERE ARE SOME MORE LINKS DESCRIBING THE ONGOING SITUATION AT OROVILLE SPILLWAY AND DAM WALL.

HERE IS A LINK TO A FACEBOOK VIDEO, POSSIBLY FAKE NEWS, BUT MAYBE NOT, WHERE CALIFORNIA NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS TELL A WOMAN THEY ARE SETTING UP 180 MILES SOUTH OF SACRAMENTO FOR EVACUATED PEOPLE.

 

AND HERE IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR THE IMMEDIATE AREA.

https://weather.com/forecast/regional/news/california-record-wet-water-year-forecast-feb2017

THE AREA IS EXPECTING 11 TO 12 INCHES OF RAIN OVER THE NEXT 6 DAYS OR SO. GAME OVER! 901 FEET LEVEL REACHED. EMERGENCY/SECONDARY SPILLWAY STARTS FLOWING.

BYE, BYE LOS ANGELES 2-15-2017

UPDATE: I AM NOW OPENLY SAYING THAT WE WILL SEE A CATASTROPHIC MAIN SPILLWAY COLLAPSE AT THE OROVILLE DAM IN THE 36 TO 48 HOUR TIME FRAME FROM NOW. THIS IS FRIDAY FEBRUARY 17TH, 2017 PLUS OR MINUS ONE OR TWO DAYS: FROM 2-17-2017 TO 2-19-2017. I AM BASING THIS ON THE LARGE CRACK THAT HAS NOW APPEARED IN THE MAIN SPILLWAY ABOVE THE WATER FLOW. I AM NOW CONVINCED, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE INBOUND RAIN/SNOW STORM ARRIVES AT 10 PM TONIGHT, FEBRURARY 15TH, 2017, THAT IT WILL FAIL. FURTHER, THE AUTHORITIES ARE NOW “RAMPING DOWN” WATER FLOW ON THE MAIN SPILLWAY, WHICH THEY WOULDN’T DO UNLESS THEY FEARED IMMEDIATE/IMMINENT COLLAPSE. CALIFORNIA IS GOING DOWN. IT IS THE END OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT IN MODERN AMERICA. THEY WILL TRY TO BLAME TRUMP. THEY WILL FAIL. THIS PELE, POLITICAL EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT, IS OWNED BY THE LEFTISTS. FEEL FREE TO SNEER AT ME COME MONDAY IF I AM WRONG, BUT AT LEAST YOU WILL BE ALIVE TO DO SO. DEAD BODIES FLOATING IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY ARE NOT BEYOND THE PALE HERE. GOVERNOR MOONBEAM, JERRY BROWN, WILL END UP HANGING FROM THE RAFTERS LIKE MUSSOLINI DID. SON OF MAN WARN THE PEOPLE OF WHAT IS TO COME AND IF THEY LAUGH AT YOU IT IS ON THEM, BUT IF YOU DON’T TELL THEM, IT IS ON YOU. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED. I THOUGHT WE HAD A WEEK OR MORE BEFORE THE COLLAPSE, BUT IT HAS HAPPENED FASTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD.

 

We may very well be looking at the type of “Black Swan” Event people have been talking about for some time here in the USA. The ongoing crisis at the Lake Oroville Dam, caused by a level of arrogance, ignorance, and governmental corruption as to beggar description, may trigger a Black Swan event that will redefine modern American life, much as Pompeii did ancient Rome. One thing for sure is the reality is unfolding rapidly now.

I have been watching the events over the last 72 hours with increasing concern. The reason for that is we are now impaling ourselves on several hard facts that will only get worse. The first fact is the dam is set for an automatic overflow at 901 feet, using the newly renamed “secondary spillway, or the one that used to be called the emergency spillway. The same emergency spillway that was never intended to be used at any time since 1968. What we have here is a backup system that was defective from the first day the dam was opened back in 1968. It is like an emergency car brake that can’t work, ever. I am talking clinically insane here, people. At any rate, catastrophic failure is GUARANTEED any time the water level reaches 901 feet because that means water will flow over the lip. The water will not flow onto a concrete surface, with all dirt, trees, shrubs and rocks removed, allowing the water to flow directly into the Feather River Valley. Oh no, I know what will happen because the original evacuation was called because in less than 38 minutes “they” had to reopen the original spillway, or else have a wall of water 30 feet high head towards Sacramento. Again, this is a known quantity. It happened when they did it the first time, and it will happen when/if they do it again. And it will happen again whenever the lake level reaches 901 feet. After “draining” the lake it is now at 875 feet, more or less. And once the new rain storm hits, which will start at 10 pm tonight, the lake will start to fill up, and sooner or later reach 901 feet and the whole farce will start all over again.

This takes care of the so-called “emergency” spillway, which was never intended to be used, and will FAIL the next time it is used, just like it FAILED the first time it was used. And that is that. Now, the other spillway, the main one, has been in full flow mode, for some time now. It will drain any water in the lake above, oh say 860 feet. It will be matched with whatever inflow heads into the lake from rain/snow etc. The figure of 100,000 cubic feet per second is used for outflow. What “they” try to keep quiet is the inflow is in the 27,000 to 37,000 cubic feet per second-rate BEFORE ANY MORE RAIN/SNOW FALLS. The inflow rate will increase after 10 pm Weds, 2-15-2017 as the next rain/snow storm hits.

What all of this means is not rocket science. You have a non-emergency emergency spillway system. You have a main spillway system that is incapable of fully draining the lake. You have a lake that will repeatedly reach the 901 foot level, and will repeatedly overflow down the dysfunctional “emergency” spillway. You also have the main power plant blocked and that also reduces outflow by some 13,000 cubic feet per second. It also means there is no power being generated at the dam. Finally, what all of the above means is the dam/spillway failure is now INEVITABLE. I have no idea of when it will fail. I have no idea of how much damage, or people killed will be. I will only tell you, given the ABSOLUTES ABOVE, a 3o foot wall of water is going to roar down the Feather River Valley towards Sacramento at some unknown point in the near future. Unless it stops snowing/raining for the next six months, which isn’t going to happen, or unless the engineers can perform a miracle, which also isn’t going to happen, the lake level will reach 901 feet, overflow the spillway and that will be that.

Once that happens, the doom of Southern California will be upon us. It is a fact that Los Angeles gets a minimum of 25 percent, to a maximum of 50 percent, of its fresh water supplies from storage, dams, pipes and pumping systems located in Central and Northern California. When Lake Oroville breaches, LA will lose both water volume and water pressure. It will obviously have some storage ability in LA, but not much. Once the storage tanks are dry, and once the water pressure falls, not only in the residential and commercial water pipes, but in the FIRE SYSTEM HYDRANTS AND PIPES, it will be all over. Once the LA Fire Department loses water pressure, it will lose the ability to pump water. It will lose the ability to fight fires citywide; likely county-wide also. Black Swan, indeed.

ONE SEASON AWAY FROM FAMINE 4-13-2016

The key point here is the last two years in a row have been near perfect harvests globally. In spite of this, we are going to have to draw down global cereal reserves to meet global food needs. When, not if, we have any level of cereal grain production issues, we will rapidly see distortions in the markets. The distortions will be based on price increases. People will pay more for food, assuming they can still get it. It will be, as it always is, the poor and the weak who will suffer. However, the time will come when food will be so short money won’t be enough. After all, money can’t buy food that hasn’t been harvested.

The source of this article, FARS News, the Iranian propaganda website, indicates that the American corporate media continues to ignore stories of decisive impact on people’s lives. Famine is coming. You may count on it.

FAO: World Cereal Production in 2016 Sets to 2521 mln Tons

TEHRAN (FNA)- World cereal production in 2016 is set to amount to 2 521 million tons, just 0.2 percent off last year’s large output and the third-highest global performance on record, according to FAO’s first forecast for the new season, released on Wednesday.

The small decline in 2016/17 world cereal production portended by FAO would largely result from a lower worldwide wheat production, which is now expected to amount to 712.7 million tons, some 20 million tons less than in 2015.

According to a press release published by the FAO Representation in Iran, the decline mostly reflects smaller plantings in the Russian Federation and Ukraine, both affected by dry weather.

Global output of coarse grains is projected at 1 313 million tons, up about 11 million tons from 2015, with expected increases in maize production more than offsetting declines for barley and sorghum.

Maize output is seen growing by 1.1 percent to 1 014 million tons, driven by recovering yields in the European Union and expanding plantings in the United States. At the same time, maize production is expected to fall in Southern Africa and Brazil, due to drought and adverse growing conditions associated with El Niño.

World rice production is predicted to recover with a return to normal weather conditions in northern-hemisphere Asia, where erratic rains have affected planting activity for the past two seasons. Global output, although impacted by unattractive prices, is predicted to rise 1.0 percent to 495 million tons.

International trade in cereals in 2016/17, however, is poised to decline for the second consecutive season – by 1.4 percent to 365 million tons – due to ample stockpiles and modest demand growth in many importing countries.

Global cereal utilization in 2016/17 is foreseen to grow only modestly, rising by around 1.0 percent to 2 547 million tons, according to very preliminary new estimates.

As utilization is anticipated to exceed production, cereal reserves would need to be drawn down to fill the gap. FAO’s first forecast for world cereal stocks at the close of seasons ending in 2017 points to a likely 3.9 percent annual decline to 611 million tons. However, the resulting world cereal stock-to-utilization ratio would still approach 23 percent, well above the historical low of 20.5 percent registered in the 2007/2008 season.
