From Dr. Jeff Masters Wunder Blog: 63.5°F in Antarctica: Possible Continental Record; 14 Years of Rain in 1 Day in Chile
Continental records are rare as hell. But will become a lot more common as things continue to heat up.
Weather weirding in Chile: Copiapo River dry for 17 years, swamps desert area in Atacama region.
Update: Video on the flooding – worth watching, pretty devastating.

Americans…. have chosen the path of “strong” denial. The United States is the leading cause behind many, many wrong-doings throughout the world. Quoting myself, I said: “This blog had focused on a wide variety of these issues, including war, terrorism, torture, pollution, environmental destruction, economic collapse, climate change, peak oil, tyranny, oppression, “big brother”, privacy, capitalism, imperialism, domination, genocide, materialism, consumerism, evaporating freedoms and lost liberties. My goal was to awaken the sleeping sheep of America to their common predicament, and to the root causes of many of these issues.” Many different bloggers are also still focused on the same issues. And yet despite the billions of words now broadly played across the Internet extolling and exhorting our views, news and opinions of these facts and events, we have singularly failed to actually change what I have come to call the final outcome.

Survival Acres Blog – What is it?
The point and purpose of this blog, unlike any other “preparedness” blog or website, has been to help inform readers to some of the factual, serious issues facing humanity. Over the years, I’ve taken the time to cover a lot of topics, avoiding a few on purpose and focusing on others that I’ve come to accept as urgent and important.
A new giant-sized, 1 kilometer-wide crater is being reported in the Yakutia region of Siberia. I’ve not seen the pictures yet but will soon.
This is one of the smaller ones:
If true (and it probably is, since it was first reported by the Oil and Gas Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences), this is more evidence of destabilized methane in thawing permafrost.
For those few of you that actually give a damn about this extremely important topic, I strongly suggest you watch this video. Perhaps 2 or 3 times and listen carefully. Five minutes.

The significance of this is this:
a) Virtually ALL of the projections used to date, and shared with industry, government, defense and world leaders contains carbon capture technology provision that does not exist (which literally means the projections are pure “science fiction”).
Here’s an example of the 85% loss of ice in the Arctic.
The erratic Jet Stream now impacting the United States and other regions of the world was “once” the regulator of the climate in Canada and the United States (along with ocean temperatures, now exceeding 21F hotter temperatures off the East Coast).

Plenty of people still in major denial about this, but nobody has yet found a way for denial to replace the missing ice or bring the climate back to normal. Maybe if we canned all the useless wind these people are venting we could harness the energy and twirl some turbines or something.
Climate change denial is an indefensible, morally reprehensible “argument” (it is not an argument, it is a delusional fabrication of a false reality). Yet climate change it is still one of the most hotly contested topics in America. But not elsewhere, only here. Elsewhere, climate change is widely accepted as being very real.
Factually speaking, there is no reason for this “debate” on climate to even exist. On one side is the staggering body of evidence and scientific research, actual facts, provable, demonstrable and observable, on the other is deceit, deception and misrepresentation. And a whole lot of money from the energy industry (another “expert” unmasked here). And an inept, irresponsible media presentation, supposedly offering “balance”. There is no balance when facts are simply not reported or routinely denied, there is only distortion and an absence of accountability.
