Severe Storms Slam U.S.
"Crazy" outbreak of severe weather tears up the United States from the Midwest to the East -
Mainstream Media Still Not Getting "It"
March 2, 2012
A series of powerful storms moving West gained strength on Friday, March 2, and sent waves of powerful, catastrophic, and deadly weather across the American Midwest, South, and Southeast. One National Weather Service storm forecaster described the severe outbreak of tornadoes and deadly weather as "crazy."
The mainstream media and the U.S. government are still 'insisting' the severity of the storms pummeling
the United States is not relared to global-climate warming. Notice how they, the government and mainstream media, carefully avoids the subject of climate change, especially tying climate change to what is happening with the weather. The mainstream, media, government, and society it has fostered, in general, is so out of touch with the reality of climate change and what it is doing to our weather, the mainstream is unable to comprehend the consequences until tragedy has struck, and even then they deny the cause(s). The tragedy is soon forgotten, execpt for the lives left in ruin by the catastrophe, and life goes on as usual, with little to no regard for the changes in weather that caused the tragedy in the first place. Talk about society and it's science being asleep, or just plain brain dead to what is going on around them!
None of this increase in weird, crazy, and severe weather is coming as any surprise to me, or others, who saw the "writing on the wall" in regards to climate change, and the effects climate change was going to have on our weather, as far back as the 1970's. If I and a few others knew about climate change and the affects it would have on our weather, as far back as the 1970's, believe me, there are those in positions of power who knew about this as well; they were just keeping the knowledge from the public, unless of course the Powers-That-Be would like to plead stupidity to society... [I'll let you, the reader fill in the blanks.]

Very Large Earthquake Predicted For Chile
Last Large Earthquake Did Not Relieve Stress
January 31, 2011
The central part of Chile, near the devastating 8.8 magnitude earthquake that happened in February 2010 did not relieve seismic stress along the "Darwin gap," and due to this another earthquake, much larger than the last one a year ago, is expected anytime.
The last time the "Darwin gap" ruptured was in 1835, and a high build up of seismic stress currently exists along that gap.
For more on the Chile at risk earthquake factor, and other earthquake news and information, please visit the Earthquake Activity topic at the ECC1 forums.
Volcano Erupts Without Warning in Japan
Mount Shinmoedake Erupts Suddenly
January 31, 2011
On Wednesday, January 26, 2011, the Mount Shinmoedake volcano in the remote part of the Kirishima range, on the southern Japan island of Kyushu, erupted suddenly. This is the first eruption of the volcano since 1952.
The volcano awoke with a ferocity, and as of January 31, 2011, was continuing to erupt.
More on the eruption of Mount Shinmoedake can be found at the ECC1 forums, in the Japan - Volcanic Activity topic.
Earthquake Activity Has Increased 157%
The Number and Strength of Earthquakes Has Increased Substantially Over the Last Decade
January 29, 2011
From the beginning of 2000 to the end of 2009 the number of earthquakes increased substantially, when compared to the previous ten years. This is fact and not fiction.
From January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2009 there were 22,270 earthquakes with a magnitude of 5.0 and greater.
From January 1, 1990 to December 31, 1999 there were 14,193 earthquakes with a magnitude of 5.0 and greater.
This represents a 157% increase in earthquake activity over the previous decade.
The standard argument against the increase in earthquake activity has been that there are more seismic instruments. More instruments equates to it looking like there is more earthquake activity. This is a falsehood, but it is an argument which gets a lot of play and that many people buy into, quickly dismissing the facts themselves.
Seismic instruments are extremely sensitive and can pick up seismic activity from around the planet, especially those that are over 5.0 in magnitude. This is the main reason the magnitude of 5.0 was chosen for this study. The addition of more seismic instruments is primarily used to breakdown the quality of the seismic activity itself, such as the depth, the location, and other factors related to the earthquake. More seismic instruments equates to better quality seismic readings. Sometimes this applies to the magnitude of an earthquake, but most of the time more instruments are used to better qualify the different factors of an earthquake. This is an explanation that is rarely if ever offered to the public by the so-called earthquake experts who downplay the increase in earthquake activity; they go with the standard argument that more instruments equals more earthquakes in order to bolster their argument that there has not been an increase in earthquakes, when in actuality the numbers clearly show there has been an increase in earthquake activity.
The numbers presented in this study also show that the strength of earthquakes has also increased.
Magnitude 7.0 and above earthquakes have increased by an even greater percentage. From 2000 to 2010 earthquakes over 7.0 in magnitude increased by 197%.
From January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2009 there were 227 earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.0 or greater. Over the same time span, a decade earlier there was only 115 earthquakes of the same magnitude, 7.0, or greater.
So not only have earthquakes increased in number, they have also increased in strength. Both by an alarming number!

New Solar Maximum Approaching
Solar Maximum to Affect Earth...
Is this part of the 2012 prophecies?
January 29, 2011
The last solar maximum lasted longer than normal and even after the experts declared the solar maximum was over, the Sun produced solar storms unlike anything we have ever seen.
As the new solar maximum approaches the Sun continues to behave in unusual ways not seen by science before. This is a strong indicator that the approaching solar maximum will probably be even more powerful than the last one.
There is even speculation that there will be a "super" solar storm which will impact Earth and cause devastating problems to the electrical grid, satellites, and even possibly to the core of the Earth.

New Photo Section Added to ECC
ECC Opens New PhotoArt Gallery
Sherwood's PhotoArt Gallery
December 06 , 2009
have been working with cameras and involved with photography since I was old enough to hold a camera in my hand. One of my first cameras was mom's old Kodak Brownie, which she gave me as more of a toy than anything else. A few years later mom bought a 35mm camera, and I went crazy shooting everything in sight. It has been like that for a little over 50 years now. Almost all of the film prints from long ago have been lost, although I still have most of the color 35mm slides, and at some point in the future I will see what can be done with those. Some of them reflect a bygone era very well.
Soon, in fact it is already happening, 35mm and other types of chemical photography methods will become as antique as that old Kodak Brownie I first had, is now. Digital and dry process photography is rapidly becoming the way of taking pictures, and processing the digital pictures into print has become an art form. Digital photography is capturing images way beyond anything the old method was capturing, and the digital images are stunning when properly processed and prepared. I always knew that my love for photography and art, blended together, would come about; I am just glad it has been in my lifetime.
Pictures are about beauty and subject matter, and because of this you take a ton of pictures to come out with a few good ones. Sometimes an image shot with the camera escapes the eye and imagination, until you see the picture with digital processing software and are confronted with the close-up of the picture you took. That is how many of the pictures presented at Sherwood's PhotoArt Gallery have come about.
Not only will I be presenting prints at Sherwood's PhotoArt Gallery from my personal archive, but I will also be presenting prints from NASA solar images captured the last solar maximum [these will come later].
A large part of the profits from the art work being sold at Sherwood's PhotoArt Gallery is going to go towards Earth Changes Central, and hopefully keeping ECC1 around for another decade or so.

Climate & Weather Changes Accelerate
Danger, Destruction, and Catastrophes Increasing
November 27, 2009
As climate and weather patterns continue to change at an alarming and increasing rate, so is the destruction and damage being caused by the changes.
Food and drinkable water supply shortages are increasing in many regions of the world, resulting in increased levels of famine. Life sustaining amounts of food and water is already in dangerously short supply in many areas of the World, a situation that is becoming even more dire as climate and weather changes increase. Look for this scenario to become even worse over the coming years.
Flooding and related climate change phenomena is on the rise worldwide, despite what some are saying. For over a decade, the naysayers and agents of disinformation [mostly far right neocon types] have been actively engaged in attacking anyone associated with getting the news out about climate and weather pattern changes. The naysayers and agents of disinformation were and are firmly asserting that there was and is no dire changes going on, and the warnings being issued by individuals like this author, and sites like this one and others, are nothing more than whacko conspiracy sites and individuals, who know nothing. In reality it is the naysayers and disinformation artists who don't know anything, and are doing a great disservice to humanity.
Today the signs of climate and weather pattern changes is all around us, without hardly a place on Earth not being severely affected in one way or another.
The outlook for danger, destruction, and catastrophes is increasing. As climate and weather pattern changes continue to increase, so do the exponential factors associated with these changes.
Kilimanjaro's Snows Gone by 2022?
Ernest Hemingway must be reaching for a bottle of grappa in his grave. The snows of Kilimanjaro -- inspirations for a Hemingway story of the same name -- could be gone by 2022, a new study confirms.

November 02, 2009
The ice atop Kilimanjaro "continues to diminish right on schedule for disappearing, unfortunately, in the next couple of decades," said glaciologist Lonnie Thompson at Ohio State University in Columbus.

Earthquake Risk: Pacific Northwest
The GREAT Earthquake Threat Facing Southern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest Region — U.S.
Updated: November 27, 2009
Region: OFF COAST OF OREGON
Geographic coordinates: 43.460N, 126.773W
Magnitude: 5.3 Mw
Depth: 10 km
Universal Time (UTC): 4 Nov 2009 12:38:29
Time near the Epicenter: 4 Nov 2009 04:38:29
Location with respect to nearby cities:

283 km (176 miles) NW (313 degrees) of Crescent City, CA
400 km (249 miles) SW (236 degrees) of Portland, OR
It has been 307 years since a GREAT earthquake struck the Cascades region of the Pacific Northwest and southern British Columbia. The last known GREAT earthquake that struck the Cascades region is thought to have taken place on January 26, 1700, and been more than 9 in magnitude.
“The earthquake shaking collapsed houses of the Cowichan people on Vancouver Island and caused numerous landslides. The shaking was so violent that people could not stand and so prolonged that it made them sick. On the west coast of Vancouver Island, the tsunami completely destroyed the winter village of the Pachena Bay people with no survivors. These events are recorded in the oral traditions of the First Nations people on Vancouver Island. The tsunami swept across the Pacific also causing destruction along the Pacific coast of Japan. It is the accurate descriptions of the tsunami and the accurate time keeping by the Japanese that allows us to confidently know the size and exact time of this great earthquake.
The earthquake also left unmistakable signatures in the geological record as the outer coastal regions subsided and drowned coastal marshlands and forests that were subsequently covered with younger sediments. The recognition of definitive signatures in the geological record tells us the January 26, 1700 event was not a unique event, but has repeated many times at irregular intervals of hundreds of years. Geological evidence indicates that 13 great earthquakes have occurred in the last 6000 years.”
The M9 Cascadia Megathrust Earthquake of January 26, 1700
Damage and death toll estimates from the earthquake and the resulting tsunami of 1700 differ. The height of the tsunami generated by the earthquake, which struck Japan some 10 to 20 hours after the earthquake, ranges from 3 to 6 meters in height.
An animation, prepared by Kenji Satake of the 1700 tsunami is located here:
Tsunami Originating From Cascadia Region
The file is 6.8 MB in size and will load slowly using dial-up connections
Future large scale ruptures of the offshore faults in the Cascadia region, resulting in GREAT earthquakes, will generate tsunamis that will follow the same approximate path as the ones shown in the above animation. The resulting damage and death toll from future tsunamis will rival, or even quite possibly exceed the colossal magnitude 9.3 earthquake that struck the Indonesian-Asian region December 26, 2004.
There is legend that appears to be backed by quite a bit of proof, of a great tsunami that struck the ancient city of Kamakura, Japan (about an hour from Tokyo) in 1498. The only thing left standing in Kamakura after the tsunami was a huge Buddha stature, 13.35 meters in height, which is still there. The temple that surrounded the Buddha statue was washed away by the tsunami. The elevation of the
Temple site where the Buddha statue sits, ranges from 90 to 151 feet above sea level. The size of the 1498 tsunami that destroyed Kamakura, killing ten's of thousands, must have been huge. One troubling question mark about the origins of the earthquake that caused the tsunami remain: Where exactly was the earthquake located? Could it have been the Cascadia region of North America?
The Juan de Fuca plate is a very active and unstable plate, capable of producing the same type of rupturing and earthquake activity, as the GREAT Indonesian earthquake of December 26, 2004.
"Cascadia is America's own tectonic version of Sumatra, where the magnitude 9.3 earthquake and tsunami of 2004 occurred. Stretching off the Pacific shore from northern California some 1300 kilometers to the tip of Vancouver Island, the Cascadia subduction zone appears capable of its own magnitude 9 earthquake. What do we know about its behavior and its history? What would that great Cascadia earthquake be like?"
The Great Cascadia Earthquake of 2xxx
There is a possibility that one of the future GREAT earthquake's the world will see, will come from the Cascadia region of North America, and that it will originate with the Juan de Fuca plate.
Since 2005 there has been a series of ongoing "creeping" earthquakes taking place within the subduction zone of the Juan de Fuca plate.
Two weeks prior to February 2, 2007, scientists in Canada began picking up "...an unusual traveling tremor deep inside the earth’s crust."
"Herb Dragert, a researcher with the Geological Survey of Canada in Victoria, said the wandering tremor is the result of subtle, slow slippage of the Juan de Fuca plate as it pushes against the North American plate in an area known as the Cascadia subduction zone.
A sudden slippage of the two plates would trigger an earthquake similar in magnitude to the one off the coast of Sumatra on Dec. 26, 2004 that killed more than 300,000 people."
Earthquake scientists detect plate slippage
Late in the evening on February 2, 2007 CTV.ca in Canada issued a warning about a window of increased earthquake activity, based on research being done by Canadian earthquake experts:
"Experts warn that British Columbia's south coast has entered a two-week window of increased probability in which a major earthquake could occur.
While the chances of that happening are still very slim, such an event could trigger a tsunami equal to the size and the strength of what hit the Sumatra-Andaman Islands in 2004.
Seismologists with B.C.'s Geological Survey of Canada made the announcement after measuring a series of minor tremors deep below the Earth's surface and along the Cascadia Subduction Zone -- a long, sloping fault that stretches from northern California to Vancouver Island.
The zone, which separates the Juan de Fuca Plate and the North American Plate, has a very large fault area which can produce large earthquakes with a magnitude of 9.0 or greater if a rupture were to occur.
"Where the Juan de Fuca plate is subducting beneath the North American plate, and where those plates are touching, it's locked," earthquake seismologist Alison Bird told CTV.ca."
B.C. enters window of increased quake risk
Late in the evening February 3, 2007 and early in the day February 4, 2007, stories started circulating that the 'silent' earthquake tremor traveling deep inside the subduction zone had suddenly stopped and the earthquake danger was over. Later in the day, February 4, 2007, Canadian news stories were once again circulating about an open window of increased earthquake activity for the southern part of British Columbia.
One of the troubling parts about the news story, is that there is hardly any mention of the risk facing areas in the U.S. It appears the media in the U.S. is being silenced; being told not to carry the story. Those in the Pacific Northwest, on the United States side, are equally at risk should a GREAT earthquake strike the region, yet, the American people for the most part are not being told about the heightened risk they are facing.
Is pressure being put on the Canadian geological services to silence, or lessen the danger risk? It has happened in the past with other geological services, such as the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre, so it is possible with Canada.
There are a lot of 'jack boots' working for the U.S.G.S. and the U.S. Government these days, and they don't like it when one of the other geological services says and does things that don't conform with the 'god-like' manner (we are superior to you attitude) of the U.S.G.S...
Similar types of disinformation surfaced when a massive tectonic movement took place in Indonesia on November 2, 2002, just a day before the massive Denali, Alaska earthquake inflicted a visibly big surface tear through Alaska.
The Earthquake Event of November 2002 - Forerunner of the GREAT Indonesian EQ (Earthquake)
Denali, Alaska earthquake information:
A massive earthquake may, or may not, strike the Pacific Northwest - southern British Columbia region in a predicted time frame, but it is going to happen. It is not a matter of IF a GREAT/BIG earthquake is going to strike the region, it is only a matter of WHEN the earthquake is going to happen. With geological and climate instabilities and catastrophes increasing around the globe at an alarming rate and with heightened levels of activity (earthquake strength) increasing, the likelihood of a GREAT/BIG earthquake event happening, is increasing for the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia region.
The climate instabilities risk was added, because the melting glaciers and ice caps are adding water to the oceans, which is in turn adding an increased weight load to weakened tectonic plates. This in turn causes increased geological instabilities around the world. It is one natural system impacting another natural system, and one of the reasons global climate changes continue to pose a serious danger to the planet.

Weather Modification: Is it Fact or Fiction?
Weather Manipulation - Modification, is it fact or fantasy?
Updated: November 27, 2009
Weather manipulation and weather modification continues to pose more than one problem, and that is why this topic remains active.
Many individuals believe, or are at least led to believe that weather manipulation, (modification) technologies is something that falls into the category of science fiction, and and are made up stories by those with wild and vivid imaginations. Generally speaking, most individuals have come to view weather modification as a Hollywood type story line, where circus and carnival type hucksters are seen selling the scam like rainmaking schemes to unwary townsfolk desperate for rain. Many others have come to view weather modification as airplanes seeding clouds in hopes of bringing about rain. For most individuals these are the image's that come to mind whenever weather modification is mentioned.

Worlds Food and Water Supply in Danger
November 01, 2006
As climate and weather patterns continue to change at an alarming and increasing rate, food and water supplies from around the World are in danger of decreasing.
The resulting shortages in the food and water supply are likely to bring about increasing levels of famine and drought. In some locations adequate and life sustaining amounts of food and water are already in dangerously short supply, resulting in starvation and death. The outlook is for the situation to only get worse.

Welcome to Earth Changes Central
Changes: There are many forms
The Earth Changes Central (ECC1) web site continues to grow and undergo changes, just as the Earth and the civilizations and societies on it are undergoing changes.
First, a little history about ECC1.
Earth Changes Central has been around for over a decade. ECC1 started out as a mail group in the late 1990's, then became a web site and a forums.
On June 22, 2005, the increasingly popular (600+ members and over a million page views) Earth Changes Central website and forums was hacked into. The web site and the forums was so badly damaged and with the entire forums database wiped out, a decision was made to close the old site and forums, and build a new site. With most of the major server and security changes made, a newly formatted ECC1 forums reopened for business on July 6, 2005.
Adding and opening new areas of the web site is a labor intensive process. Please be patient while improvements and adjustments are being made to the web site.
The recently reformatted ECC1 web site includes a few improvements over the old web site. Drop down menus, the addition of a news scroller, and of course, a reformatted Earth Changes Central forums has been added, as well as other features.
Additional features that are coming to ECC1 will include a store and a PhotoArt section. Proceeds from the store and the PhotoArt sections will go towards running and maintaining the ECC1 web site.
When Yahoo! decided to close down its GeoCities web hosting site, the long running and popular F.A.C.T.S. web site was closed down. The closing down of Yahoo! GeoCities also took down access to image(s) of one of the original U.S. Bill of Rights documents that was created and signed off on by the States, Thomas Jefferson, [Secretary of State at the time] and others, at the time of the Bill of Rights creation. The images are from an original document, housed at the Maryland State Archives. Presented in the images, in one regard, is a quite different Bill of Rights that was signed into Law, than the one we have been indoctrinated and led to believe is the original U.S. Bill of Rights, which is not the case. The image(s) of the original Bill of Rights, as it was ratified, tell the true and complete story, and there is no argument that the images are a valuable learning tool, as well as an insight into the deception and betrayal, which Federalism has unjustly imposed on the American people.
One of the projects being worked on, in addition to the newly redesigned ECC1 website, is a new website, antifederalist.us, which will present a lot of the information that was at the old F.A.C.T.S. website. Many neocons and otherwise misinformed individuals, up to and including President Barack Obama, claim the United States is a Republic, which it is not. Proof of this, along with other antifederalist information will be found at the antifederalist.us website.
Audio programs, which will be pre-recorded, is another feature to be added to the ECC1 web site. The name of the anticipated audio/radio program will be the ECC1 Freedom Radio show. Join us as the host of the ECC1 Freedom Radio show speaks out on earth change issues, including the sociopolitical changes that are impacting us as a society and as individuals.
There is many forms of earth changes happening, and not all of them are geological, climate, solar, space and weather related. Changes often overlooked when it comes to earth changes, are the sociopolitical changes that are taking place on a constant basis, and/or that need to take place. The founder of Earth Changes Central, Sherwood Ensey, will be addressing and speaking out on sociopolitical change issues more actively in the future.
When you ignore change, present, or future, includingchange that needs to be made, you are doing society and yourself a great disservice, and you are inviting disaster in all its forms.
It is one thing to say one is not ignoring the changes, yet doing nothing to speak out on the changes. Ignorance is not bliss folks, or is it an excuse to ignore change in all its forms.
When one ignores change, including changes that need to be made, one is doing so at the peril of themselves and that of others.
The Earth Changes Central Forums
The future continues to look bright for Earth Changes Central, despite the set-backs that have been forced on ECC1 by those who are intent on silencing alternative news and information.
Earth Changes Central will continue to pursue The Infinite Flame of Truth, and to present the facts and truths many are afraid to present, or have been persuaded by the powers-that-be (PTB) they should not present. We know that the reason ECC continues to be compromised (hacked down), is because of our continued commitment to a no surrender or yield position. There are sites that have yielded to the pressures of the PTB, by either closing down, or to stay alive, have been compromised into becoming a mouthpiece for the PTB. Earth Changes Central refuses to do either.
Earth Changes Central continues to grow, despite the hurdles that have been placed in front of us by those intent on silencing the alternative voices who pursue The Infinite Flame of Truth.
Before the last hacking attack, the Earth Changes Central forums had over 600 members, and more than 10,000 messages had been posted. In addition, the original Earth Changes Central web site had logged well over one million page views. It is easy to see why the powers-that-be (PTB) and the agents of disinformation wanted to silence Earth Changes Central. The PTB know little to nothing about the Truth, as evidenced by news outlets like FOX, and as a result the PTB actively engage in controlling the news outlets, and what the masses of people hear. The PTB objective is nothing short of wanting total control over what the people hear and read; the goal is the manipulation and control of the masses of people.
"Of all things on Earth, Truth is the hardest to find. Men who have not expended effort say they possess it [FOX News & Pat Robertson as examples], but it is not for them. Truth is the supreme reward for those who have successfully passed an almost unendurable test. It is not a reward in a simple contest." The Kolbrin
The Infinite Flame of Truth is what puts darkness in its place and dispels it, and it is the Light of Truth that sets us free.
"We have never been without the Light of Truth. Let us not argue as to whose light, lit at the fount of Truth, burns brightest. Let us put our lights together so they may jointly give more illumination and dispel more darkness." The Gospel of the Kailedy
We must stand firm on and with the Truth, no matter what path it takes us down. This path may be difficult and strewn with obstacles, but it is the Truth we must stand firm with. The Truth is not about the rewards we will reap from it, or are told we will harvest, it is simply about the Truth. Any Truth that does not avail itself to the Truth and the betterment of all life, or that teaches us that we will get a reward from it, or tells us to murder and kill others is not the Truth. Those that follow a Truth without the betterment of life, do not follow the Truth.
