Super strong El Niño in 2014?

Conditions in the Pacific Ocean continue to suggest that a super strong El Niño might be forming in 2014. Strong bursts of winds coming out of the west in the equatorial tropical Pacific replaced the easterly winds and ocean surface currents, which normally move westward across the Pacific basin, have now reversed. El Niño causes major weather shifts and extremes around the globe.Some similarities exist between the ocean and atmospheric state right now compared to observations shortly before the onset of the 1997-1998 El Niño event, one of the most potent El Niño events of the 20th century. A series of massive ripples in sea level (known as Kelvin waves) have been spotted moving across the Pacific from Australia to… »

WIPP Officials Unable To Answer Questions About Incident

Officials from WIPP and DOE were in attendance at a weekly town hall meeting on the series of incidents at the WIPP nuclear site. A rather long list of blunt questions came from the local audience, online audience and the press. The official from the WIPP contractor and DOE were unable to answer many of the questions asked. There was no one from Los Alamos (the source of the exploding barrels) or NMED (New Mexico Environmental Department) in attendance at the meeting.
What they were able to tell people was that the entry on May 15th did give them some new information. The barrels in question were in row 16, column 4 towards the top of the stack. The two drums that failed contained “organic material”. They further clarified it to be nitrate salts with organic absorbents. We were able to confirm through other channels that the organic material was a …

Chelyabinsk meteorite parent body collided with asteroid before hitting Earth

Several fragments of Chelyabinsk meteorite found in Russia last year show a clear evidence for an intense impact event to its parent body. This impact might have separated Chelyabinsk asteroid and point it in our direction.On February 15, 2013, a 17 – 20 meters wide asteroid entered the Earth’s atmosphere and exploded about 30 km above the Chelyabinsk city, Russia. The blast caused significant damage in the city, breaking thousands of windows and injuring more than 1 000 people. It is the second largest asteroid airburst in our recorded history. The first one is Tunguska event of 1908.According to a new analysis of Chelyabinsk meteorite fragments, published in Nature on May 22, 2014, an impactor large… »

WIPP Storing Weapons Grade Plutonium In Room 7

While DOE and WIPP officials have been telling the public that the waste inside WIPP is mostly things like old gloves and radiation suits, they are failing to inform the public and the media of the much different reality going on below ground. WIPP has had the rules that dictate what can be sent there changed repeatedly. At the same time wastes from various national labs have been tweaked to fit into WIPP’s rules. The exploding barrels that caused the latest incident at WIPP are one example. Liquid nitrate salts were immobilized into a solid to be passed off as solid waste. WIPP isn’t permitted to accept liquid wastes. A change in the solidifying agent from vermiculite to a wheat based cat litter is thought to be the root cause of the explosion. This is still part of the ongoing investigation.
Our research team learned early on in the disaster that …

Earth and Moon to pass through Comet LINEAR's dust trail on May 24th - LIVE

Astronomers are excited about a new meteor shower that could put on a spectacular show on the night of May 24 when Earth and Moon pass through the dust trail left by Comet 209P/LINEAR in its past orbits. This meteor shower is new and no one is sure how much debris is waiting.It could be the most intense meteor shower in decades with meteor storm as high as 1000 shooting stars per hour or a complete dud. It all depends on how active the comet was more than a century ago when the debris streams were laid down.The new meteor shower is named May Camelopardalids and it favors observers in southern Canada and continental U.S. Its peak time is between 06:00 and 08:00 UTC on May 24th but outbursts could occur hours before or after the forecasted pe… »
