Dry/Ice: Global Warming Revealed
by Drunvalo Melchizedek
What you are about to read is going to change your world forever, this I can promise you. I actually apologize that I have to be the one who brings this unsettling news, but you must know if you wish tosurvive, for what is coming will either be DRY and heat or ICE and freezing.
Global warming has been in the news for over 40 years, and by this time we have become complacent. Our scientists have come to the agreement that global warming will eventually cause major changes and problems in the world, but in their way of thinking it will be 50 to100 years before we will actually have to deal with the effects.
The general idea is that global warming will be slow and the world will find time to discover the solutions to the problems.
New powerful evidence strongly suggests that this scenario is simply wrong, and we had better prepare for another more abrupt possibility.
One of the first hints that something may be different than what we are being told (especially here in the US) was published in Discover magazine in September 2002 with the cover announcing “Global WarmingSurprise, A New Ice Age”, “Oceanographers have discovered a huge river of fresh water in the Atlantic formed by melting polar ice. They warn it could soon bury the Gulf Stream, plunging North America and Europe into frigid winters.”
That was almost two years ago, and no one listened. Life goes on oblivious to the incredible danger approaching.
ENGLAND & SIR DAVID KING
Then in January 2004 enter Sir David King. Sir King is the Prime Minister of England’s chief scientist. Sir King went to Mr. Blair and told him of the impending worldwide disaster and that they needed to tell the world of what was about to happen.
Tony Blair told Sir David King to be quiet and not speak. But Sir King felt that this was simply too important for him to say nothing, so in January of this year he deliberately went around Mr. Blair and went straight to the American journal Science where he published his information and concern.
Sir King said in this article, “In my view, climate change is the most severe problem we are facing today, more serious even than the threat of terrorism.”
England placed a gag order on Sir David King, and now he is not even allowed to discuss this subject publicly without threat ofdetention.
AMERICA & THE PENTAGON
A month later in February 2004, the Pentagon became involved, which has stirred the world to action.
The Pentagon has been studying Global Warming for many years because of its possible national security problems associated with the kind of changes that could present themselves to the world through Global Warming.
A special study was conducted through one of the Pentagon’s departments, the Office of Net Assessment, which is directed by Andrew W. Marshall, 83, who has the responsibility of identifying long-term threats to the United States.
Mr. Marshall went to a US based think-tank called Global Business Network to compile the possibilities of Global Warming on US national security. A study was completed in October of 2003 and released to the Pentagon, which was looking at this problem from the point ofview of what is the worst that could happen. It was named “An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security.” The summary went far beyond what most Pentagon experts had expected.
Realizing the incredible possibilities of this study, Mr. Marshall made a decision to publicly report this and other information to the American people. And probably because of President Bush’s stance onGlobal Warming, which is beyond negative, he also decided to go around the president, and he published his information and concern in Fortune magazine on February 9th 2004.
In his article in Fortune, Mr. Marshall explains how the melting North and South poles and glaciers from around the world are composed of fresh water and within this fact is the basis of the impending global weather disaster.
The Gulf Stream or scientifically referred to as North
Atlantic thermohaline conveyor is a stream of warm water that comes from south of the equator and flows over the surface of the ocean toward the north where this warm water keeps Northern America and Northern and Western Europe from freezing. It also holds most of the world’s weather patterns in the way we are used to.
Then as this Gulf Stream cools down, it drops to the bottom of theocean and returns as a river in the ocean to the south where it warms up again and rises to the surface and then returns to the north one more time in a continuous convection current. It is a huge three dimensional figure eight.
The motor that keep this warm water flowing is found in the north where the Gulf Stream drops to the bottom of the ocean. It is the salt density of the ocean that causes this river to drop and pulls the warm water up from the south.
Now that the poles are melting and fresh water is flowing into the Atlantic Ocean and the salt density is decreasing, the Gulf Stream does not drop quiet as far, which results in a slowing down of this Stream. The Gulf Stream has been dramatically slowing down now for at least ten years.
As the Gulf Stream slows down, the warmth is not brought to the North Atlantic region, and the weather patterns begin to change for they are dependent on this warmth to keep a balance.
THE MELTING POLES
The Bush Administration
During the Bush administration when discussions have been held on the melting of the North & South Poles, this government and US corporate entities alike have stated that the world’s scientists are all wrong on their conclusions that say there is great danger, and have led the American public to believe there is no real problem at all.
However, George W. Bush was the focus of attack by Sir David King when he wrote his article in Science, for the world’s greatest scientific minds, at least one thousand seven hundred of them with the Union of Concerned Scientists say that Mr. Bush is ill informed at the least.
Since the US government is 25% of the CO2 pollution in the world, that is, creating Global Warming, a discussion of Mr. Bush’s Global Warmingpolicies is paramount. Perhaps one of the best articles thatsummaries Mr. Bush’s position will be found in the ROLLING STONESmagazine article of May 19, 2004 by Tim Dickinson. What follows initalics is a portion of this article.
Given the imminent threat from global warming, even the Bushadministration might be expected to launch a War on Heat. After all,as a candidate in 2000, George W. Bush vowed to “establish mandatoryreduction targets” for carbon-dioxide emissions, saying he would makethe issue a top priority.
Once Bush became president, however, reducing carbon emissions wasthe first promise he broke—and his record has been all downhillfrom there. Only two months after taking office, the administrationwithdrew from the Kyoto Protocol, the global treaty that the UnitedStates signed in 1997 to set strict limits on greenhouse emissions. Instead, Bush instituted a voluntary emissions plan that has been anabject failure: So far, only fourteen companies have pledged to curbtheir CO2 output.
The president also folded the interagency group that monitors climatechange into the Commerce Department—led by Secretary Don Evans, aformer oil and gas executive. And he called for additional climateresearch that would delay any meaningful regulation for at leastanother decade. “We do not know how much our climate could or willchange in the future,” Bush declared in a speech in the Rose Garden. Such statements spurred an open letter signed by twenty Nobellaureates, who blasted the administration for having “consistentlysought to undermine” public understanding of man’s role in globalwarming. (Bush’s science adviser refused to be interviewed for thisarticle.)
Then the censorship began. In September 2002, the
Environmental Protection Agency released an air-quality report that -for the first time since 1996 - included no mention of globalwarming. Seven months later, the White House made wholesale revisionsto the climate-change chapter of the EPA’s “Report on theEnvironment,” playing down human influence, deleting references tothe health impacts of global warming and inserting climate datafunded in part by the American Petroleum Institute. The EPA withdrewthe altered chapter, acknowledging in an internal memo that it “nolonger accurately represents scientific consensus on climate change.”
Even some Republicans have been astounded at Bush’s meddling
in EPA affairs. “What seems constantly evident with George W. Bush isthat EPA is expected to take its marching orders from the White Houseon regulatory matters,” says Russell Train, who headed the agencyunder Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. “During my time, I never hadthat happen. Never.” Train, a recipient of a Presidential Medal ofFreedom from the elder Bush, calls the administration’s approach toglobal warming “totally wrong” and “irresponsible.”
Bush can rely on key Republicans in Congress to block any efforts tocurb pollution and stave off disaster. Sen. James Inhofe, chairman ofthe Environment and Public Works Committee, dismisses global warmingas a “hoax.” In a speech last July, Inhofe compared the IPCC to theSoviets and extolled the virtues of what he called a “CO2-enhanced” world. “It is my fervent hope,” he concluded, “that Congress willreject the prophets of doom who peddle propaganda masquerading asscience in the name of saving the planet from catastrophic disaster.”
>From another point of view in the same article we hear: “They
(the Bush Administration) do not have a credible plan, eitherdomestically or internationally, for addressing the problem (GlobalWarming), says Michael Oppenheimer, a climatologist at PrincetonUniversity. They (the Bush Administration) argue that they don’t wantto address global warming, he says, ‘because the science is shaky’. And that approach is indefensible, because the science isn’t shaky.”
The North Pole Melting
Let’s look at the facts. Two summers ago the North Pole completelymelted for the first time in history that we know of. Both privateand military ships floated directly over the actual North Pole as itwas completely water. This area has never been seen to be less thenten feet of solid ice.
Greenpeace a few years ago announced that the North Pole’s winter tosummer snow pack had receded by around three hundred miles, but noone listened.
And today, as I am writing this article, we are witnessing the Alaskafire that has consumed over one million acres of forest. This fire isburning in an area that is always wet with rain or snow until now. And this fire, as you will understand in this article is directlyrelated to the melting of the poles and the Gulf Stream.
But finally the Pentagon, thanks to Andrew Marshall, has told thetruth in the Fortune magazine on February 9th. The Pentagon shows asatellite photo of the North Pole in 1970 and then in 2003, whichreveals that, according to the Pentagon, 40% of the North Pole hasmelted in just 33 years. And it is melting faster and faster now. ThePentagon has now proven that all these government statements that thepoles are not melting were simply a lie. And it is a lie moredamaging than anything that Bush’s Iraq war could possibly throw atthe United States.
The South Pole Melting
In the South Pole a couple of years ago Larsen A ledge broke off,which surprised many scientists. At that time we were told by thescientific personnel that were studying this event that it was no bigdeal since this ice ledge had only been connected to the South Polefor about the last ten thousand years.
And these same scientists also added that Larsen B ledge that wasbehind Larsen A ledge would never melt as it has been there for manyice ages. Yet last year, Larsen’s B ledge broke off and went to sea. These same scientists said that it would take six months to meltbecause of its immense size, but again they were wrong. It melted ina mere 35 days, and more significant, it rose the entire world’soceans by almost an inch.
Now with Larsen’s B ledge gone, an incredibly enormous ice shelfcalled Ross’s Shelf is exposed and the only thing holding Ross’sShelf from sliding into the ocean was Larsen’s B ledge. According tomy sources, Ross’s Shelf is now cracking.
If Ross’s Shelf were to slide into the ocean, it has been estimatedthat it would raise the entire world’s oceans by sixteen to twentyfeet. And that, my friends, would change the world, as almost everycoastal city in the world and many islands along with the county ofHolland would be underwater. Perhaps it will take an event like thisto wake up the world to become serious about Global Warming.
THE ANCIENT PAST
The Pentagon in their study of what is now happening in the NorthAtlantic ocean, has looked into the past to see when this slowingdown or stoppage of the Gulf Stream has happened before and whatactually took place at those time in the world’s weather patterns.
In actual fact, this North Atlantic ocean slowing or stoppage hashappen hundreds of times before in the past going back hundred ofmillions years, but in our recent past of the last 10,000 years, ithas only happened twice.
The most recent time was in the year 1300 AD, and at that time itsimply slowed down. It never actually stopped. And why it sloweddown, scientists are at the moment theorizing. They don’t really knowwhy.
It resulted in abrupt global climatic weather changes that neverreturned to normal for 550 years. This period of time in our historyhas been named the “Little Ice Age” because of the havoc it caused toour weather and the dramatic cooling that resulted.
What the Pentagon has realized is that at that time of the “LittleIce Age”, the East Coast of America became extremely cold, while themiddle and Western areas of the United States became so dry that theMidwest became a dust bowl and the mountain forests burned to theground, just as they are doing right now today, for you see, thisslowing down of the Gulf Stream has been going on today for about tenyears. It also affected Europe dramatically as their weather changedcompletely during the “Little Ice Age”.
A study of the Anasazi Indians of the 14th century is enlightening. In Chaco Canyon in New Mexico the Anasazi completely disappeared, andwhere they went no one is sure. But one of the reasons that hasemerged from the study of the New Mexico environment for theirleaving the area is that soon after the turn of the 14th century,Chaco Canyon went into a drought where they didn’t receive a drop ofrain for 47 years! 47 years of drought will definitely cause anyoneto move. No water, no life.
The archeologists who presented this study didn’t know why thedrought happened, but it is clear why it happened with theinformation of the Gulf Stream slowing down just before this period. And this is exactly what the Pentagon believes is about to happenhere in America, Canada and Europe as we speak.
We may think that this current drought in the US West is going tostop soon, but the earth’s history with the Gulf Stream suggestsstrongly that it will continue for about another 40 years before itbegin to regain balance.
8200 Years Ago
However, the Pentagon report believes that the Gulf Stream, fromeverything they know, is not just going to slow down, but rather itis going to stop. And the last time this happened was 8200 years ago.
And according to the Pentagon, from their research, this is a muchmore dramatic scenario. When the Gulf Stream stopped 8200 years ago,it soon left Northern Europe under a half mile of ice, and New Yorkand England quickly endured weather similar to Siberia.
Further it resulted in a true “Ice Age” that lasted about 100 years,and so you can see why the Pentagon is so worried. According toAndrew Marshall, like Sir David King, he says that this Gulf Streamproblem is a greater threat to US national security (and othercountries’) than all of the world’s combined terrorism. Really, whenyou think about it, terrorism is nothing compared to the stopping ofthe Gulf Stream. It’s not even close.
Realize that without stable weather conditions, the growing of foodbecomes almost impossible, and according to the Pentagon, this couldbecome such a huge problem for the world in the near future, thatwars will begin to form all over the world, not for oil or energy,but for food and water.
And with whole countries having to evacuate, if this were to happen,such as Finland, Sweden and Denmark, which will be under ice, andmany other countries for other reasons, this enormous immigration iswhat will cause the most threat to national security, again accordingto the Pentagon report.
This is why Andrew Marshall and Sir David King wanted the
world to know about what was coming so that the world could begin toprepare for the inevitable.
THE US SENATE
Then in March 2004 the US Senate became aware of what the Pentagonwas saying and they appropriated 60 million dollars to the study ofABRUPT GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGES. This offers hope that soon the USSenate will begin to tell the world of these coming climate changes.
THE UNITED NATIONS
In June 2004, ending on June 29th, a meeting was held at the UnitedNations to consider what to do about Global Warming and the GulfStream. 154 countries participated with the result that the onlything they could figure out what to do was to eliminate the use ofoil and gasoline as soon as possible.
There are those who believe that if we continue to lower the CO2levels, that possibly we can slow down the problems, and, of course,we must do everything we can. This is important for there are oceancurrents other that the North Atlantic that are in every ocean, andif they all were to stop or slow down, Earth would all most certainlyenter a true ice age. And history has shown that if that were tohappen, our civilization would not return to a warm period again for 90,000 years.
But really, to change or increase the current of the entire Atlanticocean to bring it back to “normal” is beyond the possibilities of thehuman race and all of it’s technologies. It is too late, by theestimate of most of the world’s scientists, to alter the course ofwhat is about to happen. All we can do now is prepare for the shock. And preparation is essential, which is the main message of both SirDavid King and Andrew Marshall.
On July 13th, 2004, NASA launched a satellite, the first of three,that’s whole purpose is to study Global Warming. Besides the study ofthe ozone, another huge problem associated with Global Warming, thesesatellites will monitor the temperature and salt density of theoceans. Perhaps we will at least be able to monitor the rapid changesand predict what will happen next.
SOME UNUSUAL WEATHER CHANGES THAT HAVE HAPPENED SINCE THE GULF STREAM SLOWED DOWN
In March 2004 the world saw a major hurricane hit the coast ofBrazil. This is the first time in all recorded history that ahurricane has struck land in South America.
In May 2004, the United States witnessed 562 tornadoes in a singlemonth, breaking all records. A few of these tornadoes were recordedin Seattle, Washington. Never has a tornado been seen in Seattle.
Eastern Canada in the winter of 2003/2004 just had one of the coldestwinters on record.
For several years forest fires have been burning around the world.
The list would be extensive. The north part of Australia is on fire. Alaska, as we have already mentioned, is burning. Unprecedented! Theentire Western United States is under fire, jumping from region toregion, with the US government announcing that this is the worsedrought in 500 years. Really, the fires are worldwide.
France and Europe had a heat wave in 2003 that caused 15,000 peopleto die in France and 30,000 through-out Europe simply from theintense heat caused by Global Warming and the Gulf Stream.
Argentina this month July 2004, had the greatest storm they have everseen in their history.
Mexico’s weather is so strange and wet in some regions thatmold/fungus is forming on their crops. (And in other regions they arehaving a drought) As weather patterns begin to change more and moreradically, food growth will become one of our biggest problems.
The coral reefs of the world are dying because of Global Warming, andthis is threatening most of the islands in the oceans, includingthose in the Pacific. Anyone living on most islands will probablyhave to leave sooner or later because of their fresh water beingcorrupted with salt ocean water. Definitely they will have to leaveif the oceans rise much higher.
Further, it was reported on NPR this morning, July 16, 2004, thatfifty percent of the CO2 that has been released in the atmospherefrom our technological society has ended up in our oceans and this inturn is dropping the PH to the acidic. This in turn is actuallydissolving the coral reefs and killing them along with vast numbersof other life forms in the oceans.
These are problems simply off the top of my head. If one were to getserious and really research all the strange weather problems of thelast ten years (the years the Gulf Stream slowed down) one wouldbegin to be truly aware of the coming abrupt global climate weatherchanges that we must all adapt to if humanity is to continue on Earth.
THE 40-FOOT WALL
In the Pentagon report it suggests that the United States
build a 40-foot wall around the entire country to keep out people whoare immigrating and trying to escape world weather problems. ThePentagon believes that food and water will be the biggest problem,and since the US has the money to buy food, they believe we will bebest able to resist this particular problem longer than mostcountries. People will want to come here just to get food.
This sounds like something out of a weird movie, but in fact the USgovernment has already begun the construction of this wall betweenthe US and Mexico.
SIDE NOTE: Speaking of movies, The Day After Tomorrow, which wasrecently released is based on this information of the Gulf Streamstopping. However, Hollywood exaggerated the results of the storms somuch that most people simply thought it was fantasy. It is notfantasy, it is really happening, but will it happen as this moviepredicts? And in this movie you saw massive amount of Americansfleeing to Mexico to escape the extreme cold weather.
I just spoke with a US military person about two weeks ago who isinvolved in the construction of this 40-foot wall. In the discussion,with him about the Gulf Stream, which he was unaware of, he said, “Oh, now I understand. You see, the wall is straight up and down onthe Mexican side, but it has steps and ladders on the US side to getover the wall and into Mexico. I never could understand why thegovernment was doing this.”
THE CHANGING OF THE SHAPE OF THE GULF STREAM
In the Pentagon report they said that they believed that the stoppageof the Gulf Stream would probably happen in three to five years fromOctober 2003. This was their best guess, and admittedly it was only aguess and a theory.
But what they didn’t know, because it was beginning at the actualtime of their release of their report, was that the Gulf Stream wasbeginning to change shape. The change of shape of the Gulf Stream isthe beginning of the breakdown and stoppage of this warm watercurrent and the end of our civilization as we know it.
I have this information from two sources, both of which do not wishto be named right now, but both of them are world famous scientists.
If this is true, then all the effects and timing of the Pentagonreport have to be shifted closer to the present by three to five years.
I don’t know if this is true, but in the vein of holding nothingback, this info is placed in this article. The actual proof will follow if it will be given to me.
FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
As I became aware of this information, I didn’t know what to
do or if I should write this article. But because I believe in andlove humanity, I finally realized, like Sir David King and AndrewMarshall, that I must speak out, for knowledge is power.
And when the time comes for us all to make life decisions, my prayeris that we all go inside where God resides and listen to our innerHeart. If we trust in ourselves and the presence of Divine Guidance,we will all know exactly what to do and where to be.
May God bless us all in what is about to come.
