Signs of Trouble from the Oceans: "There will be upheavals in the Arctic and Antarctic that will cause the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and pole- shift." -Edgar Cacye

Earth Assessment: December 2009

While the world is lost in the global warming debate; I’m convinced something far more sinister may be lurking beneath our feet- something that has even broader implications for us than record snow fall in November. Sea Stars or starfish reside in abyssal depths of the ocean, often of depths in excess of 6000 meters. The fact that we have had so many expulsions from the ocean is troubling; if not mysterious. This might be part of the mounting body of circumstantial evidence suggesting something might be going awry with planetary processes within the Earth. The signs are numerous and many- The Earth’s rotation appearing to be lagging behind an accelerating atmosphere that, at time, seems more excited by the Sun than it does by the Earth. The irregularity of El Nino currents, an increase in underwater volcanic activity and the mass exodus of creatures from the sea, tonality fluctuations with the Blue Whale as well as a host of other unexplained sounds emerging from the oceans, dramatic and unpredictable random swings in the jet-stream location, earth’s weakening magnetic field, the increase of seismic activity in the Ring of Fire in the Pacific- all may be warning signs that some dramatic process without scientific precedent is unfolding on Earth. Volcanic activity has increased 500% in 5 years. Yellowstone is rumbling and showing worrisome strains of seismic fatigue. In November of this year, Hawaii volcano emissions prompted a federal disaster declaration and there's also troubling signs emerging from our poles beside glacial sublimation. In 1999, German researchers recorded an unusual swarm of more than 200 earthquakes in the Arctic Circle. And in June of 2008, a research team discovered evidence of explosive volcanic eruptions were occurring beneath the ice-covered surface of the Arctic ocean. * Upheaval at the Poles- In June of 2008, seismologists discovered seismic signals from a giant river of ice perturbing Antarctica, each one of the signals were equivalent to a magnitude seven earthquake. The signals were discovered by Douglas A. Wiens from Washington University, and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University and Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. 1 In January of 2008, British scientists working in Paris, announced they had discovered a powerful volcano erupted under the ice sheet of Antarctica around 2,000 years ago and it is most likely still be active today, a finding which is likely contributing to ice loss from the white continent. The explosive event – rated "severe" to "cataclysmic" on an international scale of volcanic force – punched a massive breach in the ice sheet and spat out a plume some 12 kilometers into the sky. Most of Antarctica appears seismically stable. But its western part lies on a rift in Earth's crust that gives rise to occasional volcanism and geothermal heat, occurring on the Antarctic coastal margins. 2 There is also evidence that sub-layer sublimation is occurring on the Antarctic Ice shelf, so it’s also very likely volcanic-related. Several large earthquakes have already occurred near the Antarctica continent this year. In January of 2009, scientists at Oxford University discovered that very large earthquakes can trigger an increase in activity at nearby volcanoes. So once we’re locked into an escalation window of cascading events; this could easily become that proverbial planetary runaway freight train. 3
