Two years ago, he also is/ was 100 percent certain that a pole shift is happening on Dec 21.  Better hope his research is off, or we are in for a shit storm!

 tsunami warning has been issued after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's eastern coast.

The epicentre of the quake was about 245km (150 miles) south-east of Kamiashi at a depth of about 36km, the US Geological Survey said.
The quake was felt in the capital Tokyo, media report.
The tsunami warning was issued for the coast of Miyagi Prefecture, which was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
The US-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat to the wider Pacific Ocean but that a tsunami could be generated that was destructive for local coastlines.
Warnings of the tsunami height varied between 50cm and 2m.
Evacuations have been ordered from some of the affected areas.
A presenter on state broadcaster NHK told viewers: "Remember last year's quake and tsunami. Call on your neighbours and flee to higher ground now!"

Strangely enough:


UFO Crashes Off Okinawa, Japanese Navy Secures Area, Releases Photo
 
According to the site In Other Newz, Nippon Television reported December 5th that “an Unidentified Flying Object, a UFO, went down off the coast of Okinawa, an island at the southern tip of Japan. Several news crews, along with police and emergency vehicles, rushed to the scene just in time to see the UFO sink into the water, according to multiple sources.”

Japanese Navy officials have released the first ever photo of the UFO that crashed off the coast of Okinawa yesterday. The photo appears grainy and somewhat unclear since the vessel is submerged underwater but clearly shows a power source still glowing brightly atop the aircraft’s dome.
“We wanted to release this photo to the world and confirm the reports issued yesterday,” said Japanese Navy spokesman Yoshido Hari. “This picture will give credence to what some of our citizens living on Okinawa witnessed yesterday. We clearly still have many days of salvaging ahead of us but we will take our time and bring the aircraft up in one piece. We must preserve the object as much as possible.”
Numerous reports began to circulate around the globe yesterday about a possible UFO crash off the coast of Okinawa. Many people, including the mainstream media, believed the reports to be false or an elaborate prank. The picture snapped by Japanese Navy divers will put those thoughts of falsity to rest.

I don't know about you all but I personally WOULD NOT say this pavement "buckled"
This is much much bigger than a "buckle" WTF? talk about down playing it.

LOOK AT THIS!

Notice they are saying this was NOT weather related as well......
Where's the earthquake monitoring in that area?

Researchers: Volcanic eruptions offset recent global warming

The researchers warn that the 10-year climate data sets collected by this study are not extensive enough to identify climate change trends.http://www.sciencerecorder.com/news/researchers-volcanic-eruptions-offset-recent-global-warming/

Erupting volcanoes offset recent Earth warming,according to a team led by the University of Colorado at Boulder. Researchers arrived at this conclusion after searching for clues about why Earth did not warm as much as climatologists expected between 2000 and 2010.

Lead study author Ryan Neely said that the study’s findings take some of the pressure off of India and China, two countries that are believed to have increased their industrial sulfur dioxide emissions by approximately 60 percent from 2000 to 2010 through coal burning.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the biggest sources of sulfur dioxide emissions are from fossil fuel combustion at power plants (73 percent) and other industrial facilities (20 percent). Smaller sources of sulfur dioxide emissions include trains, large ships and some industrial processes. Sulfur dioxide emissions are associated with a number of negative effects on the respiratory system.

According to Neely, tiny amounts of sulfur dioxide emissions from Earth’s surface eventually rise 12 to 20 miles into the stratospheric aerosol layer of the atmosphere, where chemical reactions generate sulfuric acid and water particles that reflect sunlight away from the Earth and back to space.

The study’s findings reveal that it is emissions from small to moderate volcanoes that have been offsetting recent Earth warming, according to Neely, a researcher at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the effects of sulfur dioxide emissions on the environment depend on several factors, including the amount of gas a volcano emits into the atmosphere, whether the gas travels into the troposphere or stratosphere and the regional or global wind and weather pattern that moves the gas.

The motivation for the study was a desire to resolve conflicting results of two recent studies on the origins of the sulfur dioxide in the stratosphere. One study showed that aerosol increases in the stratosphere may have come from India and China’s rising sulfur dioxide emissions, while the other study revealed that moderate volcanic eruptions were to blame.

The new study looks at long-term measurements of changes in the stratospheric aerosol layer’s “optical depth,” which is a measure of transparency, according to Neely. Since 2000, the optical depth in the stratospheric aerosol layer has increased by approximately four to seven percent.

Study co-author Brian Toon of the University of Colorado at Boulder said that scientists must spend more time examining the impact of small and moderate volcanic eruptions when attempting to learn about changes in the Earth’s climate. He added that “overall” these eruptions will not counter the greenhouse effect. While the emissions of volcanic gases increase and decrease, greenhouse gas emissions due to human activity are rising.

The researchers combined the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model with a second model, the Community Aerosol and Radiation Model for Atmosphere. The combined use of these two computer models produced the new results from which the researchers drew their conclusions.

According to Neely, the researchers used a supercomputer on campus to process 10 years of atmospheric activity linked to both coal-burning activities in Asia and to emissions by volcanoes around the world. They ran this simulation several times. The team was able to separate coal-burning pollution in Asia from aerosol contributions from moderate volcanic eruptions. According to Neely, each computer “run” took approximately a week to complete.

The researchers warn that the 10-year climate data sets collected by this study are not extensive enough to identify climate change trends. Neely added that the study provides valuable information for those looking into the “sources of decadal climate variability,” in addition to the global impact of local pollution and the role of volcanoes.

According to Toon, larger volcanoes can have an even bigger effect than small and moderate volcanoes. He noted that when Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it sent millions of tons of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere, cooling the planet for the next several years.

The study’s findings were recently described in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Golfer survives fall into course sinkhole

(St Louis)

Last updated 08:46 13/03/2013

HOLE IN ONE: Suddenly being swallowed up by the earth on a golf course's fairway drove a wedge between Mark Mihal and a stellar round.


Suddenly being swallowed up by the earth on a golf course's fairway drove a wedge between Mark Mihal and a stellar round.



The 43-year-old mortgage broker was counting his blessings yesterday and nursing a dislocated shoulder sustained four days earlier when he tumbled into an 6m-deep sinkhole on the 14th hole of the Annbriar Golf Club near Waterloo, just southeast of St. Louis.
Friends managed to hoist Mihal to safety with a rope after about 20 minutes. But the experience gave him quite a fright, particularly following the much-publicised recent death of a man in Florida who died when his bedroom fell into a sinkhole. That man's body hasn't been found.
"I feel lucky just to come out of it with a shoulder injury, falling that far and not knowing what I was going to hit," Mihal, from the St. Louis suburb of Creve Coeur, said before heading off to learn whether he'll need surgery. "It was absolutely crazy."
Mihal said it was a real downer on what had been a fine outing.
With winter finally nearing an end, "it was the first day to get to play in a long time," he said. "So I wasn't expecting too much."
Golfing with buddies, Mihal was waiting to hit his third shot, some 90m from the pin on the par 5, when he noticed a bathtub-looking indentation about knee deep just behind him on the fairway. At just one over par for the round, the golfer with a 6 handicap was on a roll.

The Russian city being 'eaten alive': Cars, buses, and trucks disappear beneath the earth as they are swallowed by giant sinkholes

  • Citizens of Samara live in daily fear of the ground disappearing beneath them
  • Dozens of holes have sprung up across the city in recent weeks
  • The sinkholes have left a trail of devastation and reportedly claimed one life
They may look like stills from an apocalyptic horror film, but these images have become a daily reality for residents in a Russian city.

Citizens of Samara, in south east Russia, live in fear of the ground literally disappearing beneath them after huge sinkholes have started to appear all over their city, leaving devastation in their wake.

The yawning underground caverns are all believed to have sprung up in recent weeks swallowing cars, buses and claiming at least one life.
The city of Samara in Russia appears to be sinking into the earth, as massive sinkholes open up swallowing cars and wreaking havoc

Major Solar Flare Erupts from the Sun, Strongest of 2013

http://weather.yahoo.com/major-solar-flare-erupts-sun-strongest-2013-105422413.html

 The sun unleashed a colossal Mother's Day solar flare on Sunday (May 12) in what has become the most powerful solar eruption of the year.

The giant solar flare, which registered as one of the largest eruptions the sun can unleash, peaked Sunday night at 10:17 p.m. EDT (0217 GMT) and was captured on camera by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. It sparked an hour-long high-frequency radio blackout, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center overseen by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Sunday's solar flare registered as an X1.7-class sun eruption — the strongest type of solar flare the sun can fire off, according to the SWPC officials. [Most Powerful Solar Storms of 2013 (Photos)]


When aimed directly at Earth, X-class solar flares can pose a risk to astronauts and satellites in orbit, as well as interfere with communications and GPS signals on the ground. They can also super-charge Earth's northern lights displays by bombarding the planet with solar particles, triggering awesome aurora light shows.

But Sunday's solar flare erupted from an active sunspot on the far side of the sun, so it was not directly facing Earth when it unleashed a wave of super-hot plasma called a coronal mass ejection (CME).

"No planets were in the line of fire," astronomer Tony Phillips wrote on his website Spaceweather.com, which tracks space weather and skywatching events. "The sunspot that produced this blast is on the far side of the sun. Soon, in a few days, it will turn toward Earth, emerging into view over the sun's eastern limb."


Sunday's sun eruption was by far the strongest solar flare of 2013 as the sun heads toward the peak of its 11-year weather cycle later this year. Until Sunday, every solar flare this year has been an M-class solar flare or weaker. An M6.5 flare was the strongest of the year before Sunday's event.

In 2012, the sun fired off a series of X-class flares, including a colossal X5.4 solar flare. An X6.9 solar flare in 2011 marked the most powerful solar storm in five years at that time. 

The sun is currently in an active phase of its space weather cycle. The current cycle, called Solar Cycle 24, began in 2008 and is expected to run through 2019-2020. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is one of several spacecraft keeping constant watch on the sun to monitor its solar activity through this active phase of Solar Cycle 24.
