Alert level raised for Zaozan volcano in Japan, its last eruption was in 1940

 Zaozan volcano shakes

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has raised the alert level for Zaozan volcano in northern Honshu from 1 to 2 on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, following a number of volcanic tremors and a slight inflation of ground in one area. Mount Zao is a popular tourist resort area famed for its 'snow monsters' created by water vapor freezing on trees in winter. The last eruption of this volcano took place in 1940.

Ambae volcano major unrest , Vanuatu

The volcanic activity at Aoba (Ambae) volcano in Vanuatu continues at major unrest state and the Alert Level continues at Level 2, the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazards Department said in a special bulletin No1 issued January 29, 2018. The current eruption is focused in the summit crater and there are no indications of activity elsewhere on Ambae Island.

State volcanologists detected three eruption episodes overnight as restive Mayon Volcano continued its heightened activity.

In a report on Super Radyo dzBB on Sunday morning, Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) Director Renato Solidum Jr. was quoted as saying that the eruption episodes were recorded beginning early Saturday evening and until early Sunday morning.

PHIVOLCS data showed that the lava fountaining events were detected at 6:22 p.m. Saturday; 12:45 a.m. and 5:36 a.m. Sunday. Due to thick clouds from bad weather condition around Mayon, the actual lava fountaining events were not seen but PHIVOLCS instruments have recorded the episodes.

While Mayon had fallen silent for 27 hours before the series of lava fountaining starting early Saturday evening, Solidum said that the temporary silence doesn’t mean that restive Mayon is losing steam, but possibly it has changed its eruption style. PHIVOLCS’ lahar advisory was still up even as the agency advised residents to be vigilant, especially those living near river channels around the volcano.

It said that some nine million cubic meters of pyroclastic material deposits are in the Buyuan and Miisi watershed areas; and another 1.5 million cubic meters in the western side of Mayon. Solidum expressed fears that a heavy lahar flow might occur anytime as heavy rains have continued around the volcano.

Mayon Volcano Update


Mayon Volcano threw up a gigantic ash column early Friday even㏌g ㏌ another day of ㏌te㎱e volcanic actⅳity.From Legazpi Bay ㏌ Albay,residents and tourists watched restⅳe Mayon Volcano do㏌g a pyroclastic show at sundown.Earlier,the Philipp㏌e I㎱titute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said that pyroclastic flow was ㏌te㎱e but sporadic over a span of 24 hours from late Thursday to early Friday.It said that ris㏌g plumes went up to 4.8 kilometers high.As of Friday,the number of evacuees rose to 80,000,a report on Super Radyo dzBB said on Saturday morn㏌g.However,the eruption has prompted a significant ㏌crease ㏌ tourist arrⅳaʪ,the report added.A search on preⅵous Mayon eruptio㎱ shows that ㏌ 2014,at least 63,000 people were evacuated from Albay volcano's wrath.In 2006 some 30,000 fled their homes,and the 1993 eruption left 70 people dead.

Is global cooling even debatable anymore?

It seems like every time I turn on the computer, I find another article or another paper that verifies what our planet is going through. Although you could say the same about global warming papers. It also seems that more and more scientist are saying that global  warming is pseudoscience.

I guess the biggest question is “how can i tell whats fact or fiction?” Trust the science. Many people ask how do we know what the temperature on the planet was 15000 years ago? Ice cores, ocean floor sediments and about 15 other ways to measure, but these two are the most accurate. If you think about it, Earth is a giant chemistry set. I think its amazing that  we can identify everything through these methods.

If you understand the science of the Grand Solar Minimum, It makes complete sense on why so many scientist today are agreeing that the earth is heading for a cooling period. The warming has stopped as of 2016 and it is my understanding that we will never see the warm climate like that in my lifetime.


So, now we have to plan for our children to get through the Grand Solar Minimum. Unfortunately, they will experience the worst cold climate to hit this planet in over 300-400 years. Thats why it is so important to educate and have the ball rolling so that our children and grand children can thrive.I think once you start to understand the science of the Grand Solar Minimum, It all comes together and when it does, no time for fear or agony. Its time to roll up our sleeves and get to work on ways to sustain our food supply. Only you can make a difference for yourself and your family. you can not rely on others to take on these tasks.


The time for talking is over, its time for action now. Get an indoor grow system going, start setting aside groceries each week that you can put away, start thinking about alternative heating and such. Thats where i would start.. We are too smart and too strong not to survive this upcoming Grand Solar Minimum…

The sun is going quiet.. Again…

2018 has already had its up’s and down’s. Only 20 days old in 2018 and we have had two major snowstorms ( a third on the way jaxon) flooding, ice jams, mudslides and that just the weather headlines in the U.S.. We have also had three small sunspot grouping.( Ar2694,Ar2695, and Ar2696)

What do all of these groupings have in common? Well, besides the fact that all three groupings have been weak and small, but none of them were formed at the far eastern limb of the sun. All of them sort of popped up at the last minute. Ar2696 is the longest lasting sunspot thus far of 2018. Now we are dealing with a minor G-1 geomagnetic storm today and early tomorrow. After that, our sun seems to be getting quieter for the foreseeable future as it is being predicted.

Which leads me to the next question. Would any of these groupings had been counted as sunpots say 20-30 years ago? And if not , then why now? Is this a way for TPTB to fudge the numbers so they can say that ” see, this isn’t the Grand Solar Minimum”. It seems that the global warming side still doesn’t  want to acknowledge the cooling that we have seen in regions of the world. Or maybe all the floods and record snow fall is also part of global warming>>> (i hope you hear the sarcasm)

The point is, we better start making future plans about how to adapt in a colder climate. Mari and myself had a very constructive conversation with Kate ( the Radical Gardener on youtube) We spoke about how to grow food and what kind of foods to eat to survive and thrive in The Grand Solar Minimum. We talked about how important it is to be self reliant and to have a plan for alternative heating and so on.

It is being predicted  for much of the lower 48 will experience another shot of arctic air to arrive between February 3 – 5. It is also being said that this cold air will be here through out February into mid to late march. Some regions of the U.S. are expected to be well below average temperature wise till mid may! This is only the beginning of the suns slumber and slumber it will…

Does MsM downplay or over hype weather systems?

Too many times we hear new weather terminology and names for winter storms now. Now the new weather terminology I get, there is new research being done everyday and we are discovering new things in a fast pace. My curiosity lies where we start naming winter weather storms.

Perhaps it could be that the reason for the naming of these systems is because they are more intense than ever before. Records started falling in the beginning of 2016, but 2017 has had more widespread events and was a year to remember. A record 306 billion dollar loss because of extreme weather events , was the highest cost in the history of our country!

2018 has not disappointed weather enthusiast, as records for cold temps and snow fall have been broken here in the U.S and Europe. But there are times when these MsM weather guys start naming storms, That they could be over doing it a touch. Why? Because they have never seen what they are seeing now and that these weather systems are not as predictable as they once were.

Is the Grand Solar Minimum related to these intense weather systems? Absolutely!! With our weak magnetosphere allowing more cosmic rays into our atmosphere, cosmic galactic rays are highly charged particles that provide the substance in a rain drop, snowflakes and of course the cloud coverage becomes increased as well. Add in dropping TSI rates and now your have the ingredients for global cooling. But dont take it from me only. Do your own research at your own pace so you understand better. Once you start seeing the data, you will realize that the climate is changing and will continue to do so in the decades to come…
