A Plague Of Locusts, Earthquakes In Diverse Places, And Weather That Has Gone Completely Nuts

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream.

    It is almost as if someone flipped some sort of a switch as 2020 began because we have been seeing really weird things happen all over the globe so far this year.  Later in this article, I want to talk about the large earthquakes and strange weather events that we have seen over the past few days, but first I want to discuss the massive armies of locusts that are voraciously eating crops in Asia and in Africa.

    Right now, a “deadly invasion by millions and millions of locusts” in India is absolutely devastating farm after farm, and the media in India is calling this locust invasion “the worst in over six decades”

    Parts of Gujarat and Rajasthan are in the midst of a deadly invasion by millions and millions of locusts, leaving the farmers there in distress. The invasion which began in October is said to be the worst in over six decades.

    According to reports, crops of some 3.6 lakh hectares in 10 districts as western Rajasthan have been damaged by the locusts so far. The Locust Warning Organization (LWO) said that the current wave of attack was by Pink locusts which are flying in from Pakistan.

    As bad as things are in India, the truth is that they are even worse in Africa.

    According to the UN, the desert locusts that have been ravaging fields in Ethiopia and Somalia are now pouring into Kenya…

    The UN has warned of a “significant and extremely dangerous” escalation in the number of desert locusts descending on Kenya, as the government strives to contain the threat before it reaches the country’s food-producing regions.

    The tropical grasshoppers have been wreaking havoc on Kenya’s neighbours to the north and east, devouring tens of thousands of hectares of crops in Ethiopia and Somalia since last June.

    Here in the United States, we tend to think of a “swarm” as a few hundred insects.

    But over in Africa, these “swarms” can literally take over an entire section of a country.  For example, the FAO says that one of the locust swarms in Kenya “measured 2,400 sq km”

    Each square kilometre of locusts in a swarm can eat as much in a day as 35,000 people, according to the FAO. One locust swarm seen in Kenya measured 2,400 sq km.

    “There is an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods” across the Horn of Africa, the FAO said.

    I can’t even imagine what a 2,400 square kilometer locust army would look like, but I think that it is fair to say that it qualifies as a “plague of locusts”.

    Meanwhile, earthquakes continue to pop up in unusual places.

    For example, ABC News is reporting that a magnitude 4.5 quake hit Kansas on Sunday…

    The U.S. Geological Survey said a magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck about 2 miles (3 kilometers) southwest of Hutchinson shortly after 1 p.m. The service had initially reported that it was a magnitude 4.4 earthquake, but later upgraded it.

    And this earthquake comes just a few months after there was a very suspicious swarm of 17 earthquakes in that same area of central Kansas

    The earthquake struck as the Kansas Corporation Commission investigates the cause of a swarm of 17 earthquakes in five days in August the same area of central Kansas. The regulatory agency’s investigation is focused on the underground disposal of oilfield waste that’s been blamed for quakes elsewhere in southern Kansas.

    On the other side of the globe, a very strong magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit Indonesia this weekend

    A strong inland earthquake has struck Indonesia’s easternmost Papua province, but there were no immediate reports of major damage or casualties.

    The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 6.0 quake was centered 141 kilometers west of Abepura, a city at a depth of 33.6 kilometers.

    But these days large earthquakes are happening so frequently that they barely make a blip in the news.  A similarly large earthquake just hit China, but hardly anyone in the U.S. even knows that it happened…

    According to reports, A powerful magnitude 6.4 earthquake has struck in Jiashi County of northwest China’s autonomous Xinjiang. The earthquake was reported to have a depth of 165m and took place at 9:21 pm local time.

    Witnesses say the shaking was felt in the cities of Kashgar and Artux. At this time there are no reports of fatalities or damage. This is the third earthquake that has struck in Southern Xinjiang, China in the past 47 hours.

    That quake in China was later downgraded to a magnitude 6.0 event, but that is still very significant.

    In some parts of the planet, the shaking simply does not stop.  Over in the Philippines, there have been more than 400 earthquakes associated with the eruption of Taal volcano since last Sunday

    Since Sunday, a staggering 466 earthquakes have been recorded, and experts warn more eruptions may still come.

    Of those quakes, 156 were recorded as being intensity one to four.

    Phivolcs Volcano Monitoring and Eruption Prediction Division chief Mariton Bornas said: “For volcanic earthquakes, that is strong.”

    And as I have written about previously, more than 1,000 earthquakes have shaken Puerto Rico in recent weeks.  Many residents continue to sleep outside because they are deathly afraid that their homes will collapse on top of them while they are sleeping if another big quake suddenly strikes.

    On top of everything else, global weather patterns continue to go haywire.

    In Alberta, the weather has actually been colder than it has been on Mars

    The highest temperature recorded on the red planet Wednesday morning was -17 C, according to NASA, which was still a few degrees above Alberta, where the warmest temperature recorded was –21.2 C, at Nakiska Ridge in Kananaskis Country.

    In Calgary, it reached a low of –31.2 C early Wednesday, according to Environment Canada, while in Edmonton the mercury dipped to –34 C.

    And along with Mars, Alberta was colder than a number of other well-known spots, like Siberia, which sat at –11 C Wednesday morning, and Nuuk, Greenland, where it was –12 C.

    And in Newfoundland, a devastating blizzard packing wind speeds of up to 98 mph dumped an all-time record 30 inches of snow on St. John’s…

    Premier Dwight Ball said he had asked for the federal government’s assistance, including mobilizing the armed forces, after the blizzard battered eastern Newfoundland.

    Rob Carroll, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said St. John’s had experienced a one-day snowfall of 76.2 centimeters (30 inches), breaking the previous record of 68.4 centimeters (27 inches) on April 5, 1999.

    On an almost daily basis, we are seeing natural disasters happen that are unlike anything we have ever seen before, and what we have witnessed so far is just the beginning.

    Despite all of our advanced technology, we remain exceedingly dependent on the natural environment that surrounds us, and that the natural environment is becoming increasingly unstable.

    We are truly entering uncharted territory, and most people cannot even imagine the great challenges that lie ahead for all of us.

      1. The weather is, without a doubt, is not a natural occurrence. H.A.A.R.P. can create certain weather conditions including rain storms, blizzards and droughts. A HAARP scientist stated publicly that they can alter the jet stream, which is what determines where and what the weather will be. Altering a weather pattern is like consuming a prescription drug. All drugs have “side effects”, and altering the weather has “unintended consequences”. The problem is, the weather scientists don’t know what the “side effects” may be. The constant chemtrailing produces a desired result, but no doubt can also produces serious “side effects” that scientists are not yet aware of. It’s all man made either intentionally or accidentally. And as always, it ain’t nice to fool mother Nature, it will come back to bite you.

      2. Dogs & Cats living together!

      3. A certain mercantile nation with many ports and livestock, military hammer over all the Earth, and epicenter of apostasy has been called Mystery Babylon, whichever country that is.

      4. Nibiru is getting closer. Causes increased wobble which moves under the airmass, creating extreme weather. Also stress on earth causes increased plate movements which cause more earthquakes and volcanos.

        Watch the New Madrid area. Plate about to tear there. Why DHS has had secret meetings with NE and KS State Reps last week. When it lets loose, it will trigger the West Coast quakes.

        Also, all this is why the Federal Gov has been quietly moving from DC to Denver.

        Also, why China building Ghost Cities in expected safe areas.

        Also why Putin giving away free land in the North East and encouraging people to move there.

        USGS is taking points off quake reports. A few years ago it was 1. Last couple years 2 or even more. Also, if a quake happens in a remote area, they don’t report it.

        This will end with a pole shift. Not a magnetic one as Is being proposed, but a crustal shift that results in the poles physically being relocated.

        This is a natural event for the Earth. It happens to a greater or lesser degree every 3657 years. This is the length of Nibiru’s orbit. Last time was the Exodus. 3 times back was Noah’s flood.

        It is what is described as Wormwood in the Bible.

      5. its a Magnetic pole shift. Nothing more. Its simply a end of an age Magnetic pole shift. something that happens every so often. I occurred during the time of Noahs flood. and during the Exidious. Its not mother nature getting even or restoring balance. The entire balance of nature myth is bull crap. Its not Gods wrath for perceived sins. Man isn’t the cause. Man cant prevent or mitigate it. The magnetic poles would still be shifting even if man had never walked the planet.

          Never let a good crisis go to waste; too hot, too cold, too dry, too wet or even too normal are all potentially supportive of a political agenda. Pick a cause and find a reason.

      6. Wendy’s, step aside. I bet, a strong-enough fan would turn those bugs into the world’s finest compost.

      7. Howdy Y’all

        Remember our own history with respect to the locust…the Mormon miracle at Salt Lake when the gulls appeared and saved the crops? Yes, the US also had locust infestations from time to time…until the ‘Sod Busters’ came in and began regularly disturbing the soil in which the locust larva incubated. Historically (if memory serves me here), the episodes of Locust infestation occur during times of relative drought.

        Mr Snyder is not wrong in pointing out that there are an unusual number of off events occurring, IMHO. However speculations regarding ‘Nibiru’ and other mythic bodies interacting with Earth are IMO wholly unjustified by way of an utter lack of any evidence.
        Please bear in mind that gravitational interactions are – relative to the other three fundamental forces – incredibly weak, on the order of ten to the minus 27th power weaker than the electromagnetic force as as example. Hence IF somesuch were having some effect on us it would have to be within a few millions of miles from Earth and so CLEARLY visible. Nuff said there.
        The issue of excess tectonic activity is altogether another matter. As has been explained here previously, the Atlantic basin rock strata contains a remarkable record of magnetic pole reversals over time, typically averaging about 250,000 years between such with some significant variance. The reason for that is rather simple. When rock is molten as it is when emerging from the mantle along the length of the Atlantic Ridge it has no innate magnetic structure…but, as it cools it assumes magnetic properties directly aligned with the then existing magnetic field operant at that time. Thus, analyses of the Atlantic basin strata show an exact record of the magnetic orientation over the last several tens of million years in the form (after mapping) of north-south oriented ‘stripes’ extending proximally from pole to pole of specific magnetic orientation.
        Now, I reiterate here… WE ARE STILL HERE folks. We have no recorded history of the occurence of a pole reversal due simply to the fact that the last occurred more than 200,000 years ago as a best estimate…and so No, we don’t have any real notion of what events occur at those times…thus it might well be the case that unusual tectonic/volcanic activity occurs as a consequence of the changing geomagnetic fields involved. We’ll likely see soon enough.
        Now, Volcanism. In recent history we’ve seen extraordinary activity as late as 1815 when Mt Tambora erupted with a fury we have not seen on Earth since. Thereafter global weather was disrupted to the points that the annals of that time recorded in the four years following 3 years ‘without Summer’ and one for which Winter was all but absent in the Northern Hemispere.

        Nature, above, below and otherwise undergoes cycles and epicycles of activity and dormancy and occasionally the various components are active at proximal the same timeframe. The problem evaluating such is simply a LACK of sufficient high quality normalizable data from which to infer what happens next.

        Personally – with the SOLE exception of ETA Carinae – I am far, FAR more concerned about what Men will do to Mankind in time to come…put simply here, Men ARE Mankind’s worst enemy. Perhaps we will make it through the next 100 years as a species, then again perhaps not. Current headlines daily and geopolitics broadly of late don’t seem to suggest that Humanity is gaining any ground in the process of Maturing now does it?

        Lots of Luck Y’all…
