Last Saturday my wife and I (and kids) attended a gathering of some really neat people at Janice Culley's place just a few miles from where I'm presently living here in Mount Pleasant, UT. We chatted, sang, did karaoke, were entertained, mingled, and chatted some more. The entertainment was provided by the amazingly talented local artist (a rising star who has recorded in Nashville) Mary Kaye.
As part of the evening, Janice conducted a meditation about the then upcoming coinciding of the lunar eclipse and winter solstice on December 21, anticipating that something huge was poised to happen. We wondered what might come that day.
Perhaps as an omen, I spent December 21 with grid power being down for more than 12 hours; shoveling out from nearly two feet of snow that dumped in the last two days. We fired up our (rental home) backup 14 kW propane generator twice to keep our fridge and freezer from defrosting; and I lit a fire in our wood burning stove for the first time this season. In the afternoon, after snowing all day, we got rain. They're expecting 7-8 feet accumulations of snow in the mountains. Not disaster, but definitely on edge.
Through the day, I was wondering what global event might unfold, if any. Infowars posted a story: BEWARE: The Real Terrorists are Upping Their Chatter talking about the chatter by the real terrorists, the ruling elite, that is getting louder and more urgent — prompting a warning that a Christmas season terror attack is coming soon. They also had a story: Chinese Weather Manipulation Experiments To Increase saying Chinese officials have vowed to ramp-up efforts to control the weather, announcing last Thursday that they intend to try to use technology to reduce natural disasters and combat droughts.
This evening, I got an email from Janice, reminding us about the stalled Gulf Loop current this last summer, which I reported on here, and a new report from the UK's Mail Online about a freak diversion of the jet stream that is paralyzing the globe with freezing temperatures. It prompted Treehugger to ask Is the UK's Storm Bad Weather or Climate Change?
Here's an excerpt from the post from last summer:
The North Atlantic Current is Gone

Evansville, IN, United States
The latest satellite data establishes that the North Atlantic Current (also called the North Atlantic Drift) no longer exists and along with it the Norway Current. These two warm water currents are actually part of the same system that has several names depending on where in the Atlantic Ocean it is. The entire system is a key part of the planet's heat regulatory system; it is what keeps Ireland and the United Kingdom mostly ice free and the Scandinavia countries from being too cold; it is what keeps the entire world from another Ice Age. This Thermohaline Circulation System is now dead in places and dying in others.
And here are some excerpts from the Mail Online article, with some rearrangement by myself.
How a freak diversion of the jet stream is paralysing the globe with freezing conditions

It's snowing in Australia and California yet 'warm' in Greenland
The freezing conditions that have blasted Britain are being blamed on a series of weather patterns that are bringing Arctic temperatures to much of western Europe, California and even Australia.
One of the main factors is a change in the position of the jet stream - the fast-moving current of air that moves from west to east, high in the atmosphere. A system of high pressure has forced the jet stream further south, allowing biting cold winds in from the north.
Changes in the jet stream's path can cause massive changes in weather conditions across the globe and may be why Australians are now shivering their way through summer and the current freezing conditions in California.
In a normal British winter - when conditions are mild and soggy - the jet stream lies over northern Europe, at an altitude of between 35,000 to 50,000 feet.
During these grey winters, Britain's prevailing winds come from the west and south west, and bring with them warm and moist air from the sub-tropical Atlantic. This year a high-pressure weather system over the Atlantic is blocking the jet stream’s normal path and forcing it to the north and south of Europe. The areas of high pressure act like stones in a stream - blocking the normal flow of milder air from the west and instead forcing colder air from the north down across the UK.
Here is an image depicting daily mean temperature anomalies around the world between 1st December and 20th December compared with the 30 year long term average between 1961 and 1990
In California more than 12 inches of rain has fallen in parts of the Santa Monica Mountains in the south and 13 feet of snow has accumulated at Mammoth Mountain ski resort.
And Australians expecting to bask in early summer sun this Christmas are instead shivering as icy gusts sweeping up from the Southern Ocean have blanketed parts of east coast states New South Wales and Victoria with up to four inches of snow.
When the jet-stream is blocked by high pressure it dips southwards and lets freezing air flood in from the Arctic regions. Snow and ice covering buildings at Mount Hotham as snow fell in Australia, while parts of California have been swamped with rain and inches of snow.
Other weather patterns are also causing havoc across the may also be affecting the weather, such as the current in the tropical Pacific Ocean, called La Nina, which is disturbing the jetstream over the north Pacific and North America. A combination of our usual wet Atlantic weather systems striking these freezing cold fronts results in huge amounts of snowfall – and brings Britain grinding to a halt. A Met Office spokesman: ‘The problem is we are not getting the warmer Atlantic air that normally keeps our winters mild.’ ‘We can see that it is unseasonably warm over Canada and Greenland, this is where warm air has been diverted.’ He said that any change in the pressure over the Atlantic would need to last for several days before we would notice any change in the weather in Europe. Freezing-cold winters and milder winters tend to cluster in groups, as the jet stream changes its path.
Experts are still unsure why this is but suspect it may be related to the EL Nino weather system as well as changes in sea temperatures and solar activity.
With the oil spill this last Summer, I can't help but wonder how that might have effected the Gulf Loop Current, which effects the North Atlantic Current, which could be impacting the jet streams.
I'm no climatologist; but I'm guessing that these anomalies are not just odd variations, but could be part of a meltdown of normal cyclical patterns, marking a turning point toward catastrophic weather changes. Whether part of a solar cycle or caused at least in part by man's pollutions and tinkering with the weather (everything from HAARP to Chemtrails to Oil Spills to Fracking), it does seem to coincide with a major social transformation taking place as the old gives way to the new, including the emergence of free energy technologies as an antidote.
Here's a video I've been watching from InfoWars which addresses chemtrails and weather modification.
Rosalind Peterson of California Skywatch was a certified U.S.D.A. Farm Service Agency Crop Loss Adjustor working in more than ten counties throughout California. She now spearheads a watchdog group that monitors uncontrolled experimental weather modification programs, atmospheric heating and testing programs, and ocean and atmospheric experimental geoengineering programs Peterson is at the forefront of the chemtrail research field and how the unexplained patterns that scar our skies are "causing detrimental human health effects and environmental degradation."
In this 1-hour plus video exclusive for Prison Planet.tv members, Peterson reveals how she was first spurred to investigate chemtrails after being alerted to them by someone at the Mendocino County Probation Department. Peterson then began to intensely study the phenomenon and note that aircraft producing the trails would circle the county in a clock-like loop, covering the entire area with a cloudy haze in as little as three hours. Peterson cites NASA studies showing that the chemtrails turn into man-made clouds, exacerbating artificial climate change. However, Peterson states her contention that NASA is attempting to cover-up the true nature of chemtrails and convince people that they are a natural phenomenon, a ruse dutifully parroted by top weather and satellite observatories, who as Peterson explains acknowledge the fact that man-made chemtrails are changing the weather yet still label them as natural weather fronts in their public broadcasts.
Peterson shows a map provided by the FAA which reveals how "intra-flights" - mainly of military origin - are causing the chemtrails by flying in loops around counties in flight paths that differ substantially from normal airline trajectories. The flights have no other obvious purpose than to disperse chemtrails because they have no fixed destination, they merely fly around and around in circles.
As proponents of geoengineering like Obama's science czar John P. Holdren have proposed, blocking sunlight is a primary effect of chemtrailing, and sulphur could be one of the chemicals being dispersed by these trails. As Peterson explains, sulphur has been linked with a host of health problems, which is why California removed it from diesel fuel in the first place.
After studying water quality samples for the state of California stretching back some 30 years, Peterson found that starting from 1990, water sources were all registering unusual spikes in certain chemicals at precisely the same time, namely arsenic, barium, aluminum, calcium, manganese, magnesium, lead and iron. By measuring the spikes in these chemicals in the water supply with similar spikes in these chemicals in air quality samples, Peterson was able to conclude that the cause was airborne and that it had to be coming from the atmosphere. Peterson notes that mixing aluminum and barium creates clouds and that NASA experiments based around this concept were coinciding with the spikes in such chemicals measured in water and air quality samples.
This is an enlightening, detailed and documented explanation of how chemtrailing is being conducted, who is responsible for it and what the consequences are for our health and the environment. (YouTube / TheInfoWarrior; December 20, 2010)
In her email, Janice said:
Staying in love and light and gratitude that we are being supported no matter the circumstance transforms our reality. Receiving the divine gifts are the key which can be endowed if we ask to receive. Love creates, trust opens a new reality, gratitude multiplies the energies. If you want a copy of the blessings of the divine gifts I wrote for corporate training, email me.
p.s. Since that gathering at Janice's, I've spent many hours working with one of the people I reconnected with there, Duane Erickson, helping him launch a new website http://MansBeginnings.com, which takes a look at some ancient records that have come forth in the United States, as well as wisdom from other records and teachings from around the world. He presents these records in a spirit of open source, soliciting input about their possible meanings and ramifications for today. Most of his material has been available for a while, but there is some new stuff.
