Doomsday conspiracist reschedules the apocalypse

The man whose biblical doomsday claim had people worried about Sept. 23, 2017, is not backing down.

 

The world did not end last month, and David Meade, a self-described "specialist in research and investigations," is saying that's exactly what he had expected. Now, he is focusing on another date, Oct. 15, 2017, which he claims is the beginning of the world's destruction.

 

It is "the most important date of this century or millennium," Meade wrote on his website. The action starts that day, he claimed, when the world will enter what's called a seven-year tribulation period, a fairly widespread evangelical belief that for seven years, catastrophic events would wreak havoc on Earth.

 

"Hold on and watch - wait until the middle of October and I don't believe you'll be disappointed," Meade wrote, before going on to promote his book, which he claims has all the details.

*************************************

This guy has a future as a global warming scientist, he keeps changing his predictions.

 

 

I will never fall for that ever again! Shoot in 2012 had the popcorn and lawn chair ready waiting for the end. :P

The most number of major hurricanes took place in 1886.  Guess all that manure from the horse and buggy era caused global warming.

"Is Global Warming Causing More Shark Attacks?"

Summer is a time for endless beach days, building of sand castles, and, apparently this year, the rise of shark attacks. North Carolina has seen six shark attacks in just over the course of one month and already the media is attempting to demonstrate a correlation between unusually high amounts of shark attacks to global warming.

National Geographic reported on five different factors that may be contributing to the influx of shark attacks over the past month, focusing on the topic of global warming. The news outlet claimed that as: "warming is expected to increase, it will likely bring more sharks farther north and entice more people to get into the water, which will lead to more bites."

 

This seems to be true as the shark attacks that occurred in North Carolina happened when the water reached about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius) and the "warmer weather has brought more individuals to state beaches and entices them to take dip and cool off.

 

A total of 47 shark attacks have occurred in the U.S., with two of them being fatal. The states with the highest number of shark attacks last year, according to the International Shark Attack File, are as follows: Florida with twenty-three attacks, Hawaii with thirteen, and South Carolina with six. California, North Carolina, Texas, Oregon and Alabama each reported one shark attack.

********************************************************

We were taught that sharks are friendly and peaceful creatures, and now they are upset over global warming?

Telescope project still faces fight from Hawaiian opponents

HONOLULU  -One of Hawaii's most divisive issues is centered on a largely barren, wintry mountain — its peak the highest point in the state — accessible via vehicles with four-wheel drive that can navigate a steep gravel road with sharp switchbacks. Breathing can be difficult up there at an elevation of nearly 14,000 feet (4,267 meters).

 

The $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope project on Thursday won key state approval to join other telescopes atop the dormant volcano, but passionate protesters vowed to continue fighting construction on land that's sacred to Native Hawaiians.

 

Their willingness to endure frigid nights camped on the mountain and to be arrested proved successful in blocking construction in the past.

 

"For the Hawaiian people, I have a message: This is our time to rise as a people," said Kahookahi Kanuha, a protest leader. "This is our time to take back all of the things that we know are ours. All the things that were illegally taken from us."

******************************************

I can't believe they are going to build a telescope on sacred lands in Hawaii without the consent of the native Hawaiians. Where are all the politically correct "scientists" when you need them.

New Giant Rat Species In Solomon Islands Is Four Times The Size Of Regular Rats

 

At 19-inches-long, the new giant rat species recently discovered on the Solomon Islands is an impressive physical specimen when compared to its fellow rodents. It also happens to be the first new rat species discovered in the area in about eight decades.

As noted by BBC News, the Solomons are located in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,100 miles (1,800 kilometers) off the Australian coast. Due to the fact that the islands are biologically isolated, the Solomons are also home to several mammals that cannot be found in other parts of the world, including the recently-discovered rat species. But the new giant rat is also interesting because it’s a key part of Solomon Islands folklore, apart from being about four times larger than the average rodent.

Speaking to BBC News, Tyrone Lavery, a fellow at Chicago’s Field Museum and Australia’s Queensland Museum, related how he had discovered the Vangunu giant rat, which is also known by the scientific name Uromys vika. He had been searching for the animal since 2010, but had failed to spot any evidence of the giant rat in repeated trips to the Solomons.

**************************************************

Obama lucked out, they didn't name this one after him.

 

This should do it.

NASA astronaut to bike across Amazon in climate change film

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy is keeping his exploration impulses down-to-earth, biking 600 miles across the Amazon to raise awareness about climate change and record its effects.

Cassidy tells WCSH-TV in Maine, where he grew up, that the world is affected by every action humans take. He is traversing the South American jungle with a team of environmental scientists as part of a documentary.

The Amazon is vital to understanding climate change on a global scale. Scientists say as deforestation destroys more of the massive jungle, there’s less vegetation to absorb carbon. Greenhouse gases that would normally be absorbed are released directly into the atmosphere instead.

************************************

He should get some real brownie points back at NASA for showing such concern about global warming. Hopefully nobody brings up all the pollution their rocket launches do for the atmosphere.

Science Underestimated Livestock Impact on Global Warming

Scientists have underestimated just how much livestock **** and gas have contributed to global warming, a new study contends.

In the study posted Friday in the journal Carbon Balance and Management, researchers from the Department of Agriculture, the Joint Global Change Research Institute and the Department of Energy discovered previous estimates of methane emissions from livestock were off by more than 10 percent.

 

Led by USDA plant physiologist Julie Wolf, the researchers looked at the data underpinning an old estimate of the effects of methane, realizing some dated back decades — and didn't take into account changes in land and animal use.

 

The figures that served as a basis for the 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were off by 11 percent, the researchers determined.

***************************************************

It's hard to believe that people in our government are wasting their time on this global warming nonsense. It reeks badly.

 

It has nothing to do with their stated purpose.

NASA is teaming up with Russia to put a new space station near the moon. Here's why.

At the International Aeronautics Congress in Adelaide, Australia, representatives of NASA and the Russian space agency Roscosmos announced that they had signed an agreement to work together on venturing into deep space, with the first conceptual goal being a deep space gateway. In plain language, that means we're building a space station somewhere near the moon.

Building on the success of the International Space Station, the plan is to build something that could act as a waypoint for trips to the lunar surface, or even to more distant locales like Mars. And the hope is that it could be built as soon as the 2020’s.

"While the deep space gateway is still in concept formulation, NASA is pleased to see growing international interest in moving into cislunar space as the next step for advancing human space exploration," NASA's acting administrator Robert Lightfoot said in a statement. "Statements such as this one signed with Roscosmos show the gateway concept as an enabler to the kind of exploration architecture that is affordable and sustainable."

*********************************************

This agreement sounds like Russian collusion, where are all the Democrats with their conspiracy theories?
