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.

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.

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.”
