Indonesian volcano spews towering gas cloud

Sinabung June 25, 2015
June 2015 INDONESIA Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung spewed searing ash and gas 4 kilometers into the sky Thursday, officials said, as the number of people displaced by the latest round of eruptions exceeded 10,000. “There were two strong eruptions today and the ash travelled far to the east,” said Subur Tambun, chief of the disaster management agency in Karo district in North Sumatra province, where the volcano is located. The volcano erupted 11 times on Wednesday, sending ash to the provincial capital Medan.
There have been no fatalities since the volcano began its latest period of activity early this month, he said. Indonesian President Joko Widodo this week arranged 6 billion rupiah (US$450,000, RM1.6 million ) to help local authorities cope with the displaced. The National Disaster Management Agency said more than 10,000 had fled their homes and more than 6,000 of them have to be relocated for good because they live too close to the volcano. The relocation is estimated to cost around 600 billion rupiah, said agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. Mount Sinabung has erupted intermittently since late 2013. Sixteen people were killed and tens of thousands were temporarily displaced during an intense period of eruptions early last year.  –The Sun Daily

Earth’s weakening ‘magnetic shield’ could see life wiped out as skin cancer levels soar

Earth Magnetic Field The Extinction Protocol
June 2015 GEOLOGYOur planet’s magnetosphere, which prevents solar winds and radiation from reaching Earth, is currently DISAPPEARING, affecting the WEST first according to researchers. While we are in the grip of a surge in solar storms – when radiation blast from the sun across near space – scientists have discovered our magnetic field and only defense against them is thinning. The news comes as a level G4 solar blast from the Sun yesterday morning threatened to interfere with satellite and GPS communications systems, as we reported. This natural shield reaches thousands of miles into space and also has an effect on weather patterns and global communication systems. But yesterday’s blast and more that are predicted are not expected to reach us due to our planet’s magnetic field. A European Space Agency mission, now at the end of the first of its four-year program, has concluded the Earth’s magnetosphere is losing strength. A spokesman for the agency said: “Measurements made over the past six months confirm the general trend of the field’s weakening, with the most dramatic declines over the Western Hemisphere. This will provide new insight into many natural processes, from those occurring deep inside our planet to space weather triggered by solar activity. In turn, this information will yield a better understanding of why the magnetic field is weakening.”
Researchers have warned if it weakens further or were completely eroded away, radiation levels reaching our planet’s surface would double – leading to a huge spike in deaths from skin cancer. Solar winds could also slowly strip the atmosphere of ions, which would leave Earth unable to retain air and water, while a depleted shield could also speed up climate change. And, first, the global electricity supply would be placed at huge risk. Dr. Mona Kessel, a NASA scientist studying the magnetosphere, said: “The very highly charged particles can have a deleterious effect on the satellites and astronauts.” A group of Danish researchers found the Earth’s weather is being significantly affected by changes to the planet’s magnetic field. They said changes in cosmic ray levels hitting our atmosphere affected the amount of cloud cover. A sign of the alterations to the magnetosphere is an increased visibility of the Northern Lights, or ‘Aurora Borealis,’ as solar winds hit the atmosphere, which are expected to be visible over the UK tonight. Named Swarm, the research project uses three identical satellites to measure magnetic signals from rocks in the Earth’s core, mantle and crust, as well as from the oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere itself.

It should shed new light on natural processes, from within Earth’s atmosphere to weather in space, caused by solar blasts. The satellites have different orbital paths to maximize sampling. Swarm uses “magnetic gradiometry,” when two satellites orbit side-by-side at a distance of about 60 miles. This helps discover how much of the magnetic field is created by charged rocks in the crust below. After the first year, its results have already offered an insight into the weakening magnetosphere. Rune Floberghagen, Swarm mission manager, said: “These results show that all the meticulous effort that went into making Swarm the best-ever space-borne magnetometry mission is certainly paying off.” Gauthier Hulot, a lead Swarm scientist, said: “Our magnetic field is largely generated by Earth’s outer core. The (Swarm) constellation provides detail on the way the field is changing and thereby weakening our protective shield. This is what will ultimately make it possible to predict the way this field will evolve over the next decades.” –Express UK

Exhibiting signs of awakening: two volcanoes under watch in the Aleutians

Aleutian Volcanoes The Extinction Protocol
June 2015 ALASKA Satellite imagery shows elevated surface temperatures in the summit crater at Cleveland Volcano, roughly 140 miles west of Dutch Harbor. John Power is the Scientist in Charge at the Alaska Volcano Observatory. “So, we’re seeing warm ground, increased thermal activity at the summit.  Some of the radar images that we have suggested that new lava has been extruded forming a small lava dome in the volcano summit crater.” Scientists at the AVO have raised the alert level for Cleveland to ‘advisory.’  The aviation color code has also been set to yellow.
“We have heightened the alert levels at Cleveland so that folks are aware that there is the possibility of increased hazards associated with any eruptive activity that might occur beyond what’s apparently already gone on.” Cleveland volcano has been extremely active for the past decade. Power says it’s one of the most active volcanoes in the Aleutian Chain. But the majority of that activity has come in the way of small, long-term, low-level eruptions. A similar scenario is playing out roughly 125 miles to the east of Dutch Harbor at Mt. Shishaldin.
“What we see there is Shishaldin has a very deep summit crater and down in the bottom there’s activity going on. We see increased temperatures again in satellite imagery and we believe that there’s active magma pooling deep inside that summit crater.” Shishaldin is the tallest volcano in the Aleutians, towering more than 9000 feet above sea level. The alert level there is currently set to ‘watch.’ The aviation color code is orange. Power says the volcano occasional emits small amounts of ash.  He says Shishaldin has been in a low-level state of eruption for over a year. Despite the recent increase in activity, Power says there’s no indication of any major eruptions from any of the volcanic centers throughout the Aleutian Chain. –Alaska Public Media
AlaskaEarthquake reported A moderate magnitude5.8 earthquake has rocked south-central Alaska on, but the U.S. Geological Survey says there’s little likelihood of damage. Wednesday afternoon’s quake was initially reported with a magnitude of 5.6, but scientists later revised the measurement. The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says the earthquake isn’t expected to cause a tsunami. The quake at 2:34 p.m. caused computer monitors to sway and rattled buildings in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. The epicenter was 75 miles northwest of Anchorage and 72 miles deep. The quake was centered in a mountainous area with few people, and the USGS says most structures in the region are resistant to damage from shaking. –ABC News

Where’s the snow? Climate change hits Chile’s winter ski resorts

Chile
June 2015 CHILEHaydee Pereira should be tired by this time of year serving clients at the Valle Nevado ski resort near Santiago. As it is, she has a lot of time to contemplate the mountains out the window — and the absence of snow. With 15 years experience working as a waitress at the resort, Pereira can’t remember the last time the slopes were this barren by mid-June. The only snow to be seen is the fake variety, put down last week for a photo shoot. “In all my years here, the snow has never taken so long to arrive or the season so long to start,” Haydee said as she stood in the resort’s deserted restaurant. Santiago, which sits below the ski resorts, has seen just 1.2 centimeters of rain this year, 86% less than normal, and there is none forecast for at least another seven days. The situation gets more complicated for Valle Nevado and the other ski resorts in the Andes mountains by the Chilean capital in a week or so, when package tours start to arrive from places such as Brazil.
People began skiing toward the end of May last year, with the resort officially opening June 14. This year there isn’t so much a shortage of snow, as a complete absence. For now, Pereira is serving the few Brazilians, Mexicans and Colombians that come up to see the mountains in between games of the Copa America soccer tournament. They are rewarded with a view of the smog lying over the city below, pollution that has been able to build up due to the lack of rain. It shouldn’t be this way. According to Chile’s meteorological service, the Pacific coast of South America is experiencing a mild El Nino effect, the climatic condition that typically brings heavy rainfall with it. Since 1968, 44 percent of the time the ski season has officially started after June 25, while it has been after July 1 in 25 percent of the years, according to Sotomayor. Central Chile has a climate similar to that in southern California — and a similar drought that has now lasted eight years. The water shortage forced the Lake Tahoe area ski resorts in California to close early this year.
It is getting harder for ski enthusiasts such as Stefanie Schultz, a 23-year-old graduate from the University of Oregon, to find snow. This pattern is happening everywhere in the world, not just in Chile,” Schultz said. “Every year, annual snowfall declines. This year ski resorts had to close early and Utah, Wyoming and Colorado also saw huge decreases in annual snowfall.” This season rivalled 1976-77 and 1980-81 as the lowest North American snowfall season on record, with most California and Pacific Northwest areas receiving less than half normal snowfall, according to bestsnow.net. Schultz is giving up and booking her return flight from Chile for July, a month earlier than she originally planned. “I will never forget that on July 5 two years ago, there was a huge snow storm, when there was already a lot of snow,” Schultz said. “At this rate, even if there is a huge storm like that, Valle Nevado won’t have enough snow to open many of the areas I skied that season.” –Skift

Glaciers melting at record pace on Mexico’s tallest volcano

Mexico P Volcano 2As a result of warming temperatures, Mexico’s tallest volcano, Pico de Orizaba, is performing an all-natural striptease, the ice patches near its summit melting away to bare rock. The same process is taking place in the permafrost of Russia, the ice fields of the Yukon and the glaciers of New Zealand. And as the once-frozen world emerges from slumber, it’s yielding relics, debris — and corpses — that have been hidden for decades, even millennia. The thaw has unnerved archaeologists, given hope to relatives of lost mountain climbers and solved the mysteries of old plane crashes. What emerges is not always apparent — or even pleasant. That pungent smell? It’s a massive deposit of caribou dung in the Yukon that had been frozen for thousands of years, and now is decomposing in the air, its sharp odor unlocked. Pico de Orizaba towers above all other mountains in Mexico at 18,491 feet. It is the third-highest peak in North America, after Mount McKinley in Alaska and Mount Logan in Canada’s Yukon Territory. A challenging dormant volcano, Orizaba is a training ground for those interested in high-altitude climbing. For a handful of climbers, it has been their last peak. They’ve been buried by avalanches or swallowed by crevasses. Now, the mountain is spitting back their bodies. Late in February, a climbing party circled the jagged crater atop Orizaba. “One of them slipped, and they later said he skidded down and came to a stop. When he got up, he saw a head poking out of the snow,” said Hilario Aguilar Aguilar, a veteran climber
It was a mummified climber, a member of a Mexican expedition hit by an avalanche on Nov. 2, 1959. Some climbers fell near the Chimicheco Ridge, their bodies frozen in an icy time machine, only to re-emerge 56 years later. Hearing of the macabre discovery, prosecutors dispatched Aguilar and other climbers March 4 to document the scene of death. “Upon clearing away some snow so that I could take some photographs, I saw another hand. Suddenly, there were one, two, three hands. It didn’t seem possible. Digging a little more, we discovered that there was another body,” Aguilar said. The natural fiber rope connecting the two bodies had disintegrated to little more than a stain in the ice, he added. Aguilar said one of the mummified climbers appeared to be wearing remnants of a red sweater.
“I tried to bring a piece as a sample, for evidence, but it turned to dust when I touched it,” he said, adding that the mummified bodies are unlikely to be retrieved from the mountain until weather clears, perhaps in November. Then word came of another body, this one at an oxygen-deprived elevation of about 16,900 feet on another side of the crater. Aguilar and his crew went up June 4 and brought the body down on a metal gurney, dragging it down a steep slope. Wearing a suit inappropriate for a freezing clime, the victim may have been thrown from a small plane that crashed on Orizaba in 1999, although his identity is not yet known. Elsewhere around the world, explorers and scientists are stumbling upon mountainside plane wrecks, finding mummified Incan children, and discovering a frozen graveyard of ancient marine reptiles once hidden under a Chilean glacier.  
Archaeologists are turning into unlikely beneficiaries of a warmer Earth, and several have started a new publication: the Journal of Glacial Archaeology. Its editor, E. James Dixon, an anthropologist at the University of New Mexico, frets about the phenomenon of ancient ice melting after thousands of years.  “For every discovery that is made, there are thousands coming out of the ice and are decomposing very rapidly,” Dixon said. “In the ice, some of the most delicate artifacts are preserved. We’ve found baskets, arrow shafts with the feathers intact and arrowheads and lashings perfectly preserved.” Once the ice melts and the artifacts are exposed, they decay quickly.  –The Bulletin

Solar output plunging to levels not seen in centuries – mini “Ice Age” 

Ice Age UKBRITAIN could face colder than average winters with a plunge in solar activity threatening a new “little ice age” in the next few decades. Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nose-diving to levels “not seen for centuries.” They fear a repeat of the so-called ‘Maunder Minimum’ which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago. The Met Office-led study warns although the effect will be offset by recent global warming, Britain faces years of unusually cold winters. A spokesman said: “A return to low solar activity not seen for centuries could increase the chances of cold winters in Europe and eastern parts of the United States but wouldn’t halt global warming. Return of ‘grand solar minimum’ could affect European and eastern US winters.”
Long episodes of low solar activity were seen during the Maunder Minimum between 1645 and 1715 and the ‘Dalton Minimum’ from 1790 to 1830. Both periods coincided with colder-than-normal global temperatures earning the title from scientists of “Little Ice Age.” The latest study, published in Nature Communications, found reduced solar activity will lead to an overall cooling of the Earth of 0.1C. A much bigger cooling effect is expected for Britain, northern Europe and North America where thermometers could drop by 0.8C. Amanda Maycock, of the University of Cambridge and National Centre for Atmospheric Science, said: “It’s important that we consider the potential impact of changes in UV output when looking at future climate.” 
Met Office scientist and lead author Sarah Ineson, said: “This research shows that the regional impacts of a grand solar minimum are likely to be larger than the global effect. This study shows that the sun isn’t going to save us from global warming, but it could have impacts at a regional level that should be factored in to decisions about adapting to climate change for the decades to come.” Met Office long-range expert professor Adam Scaife said solar activity has already started to decline over the past few years. He said: “Although the effect on global temperatures is very small, the local effect is big enough to make a difference and we need to include that in our future climate projections.” –Express UK

Pakistan heat wave death toll soars to 1,011 – morgues full: ‘This is like the Day of Judgment’

Pakistan Heat Wave
June 2015 KARACHI, Pakistan Karachi’s poor learned long ago to cope with the many adversities that afflict Pakistan’s most crowded and chaotic city, including flooding, street violence and political crises. But since a suffocating heat wave descended on Karachi three days ago, killing at least 770 people, they have found no respite and no escape. “It’s so hot,” said a security guard, Shamim ur-Rehman, 34, as he sat on a cot, beleaguered. “There is no fan, there is nothing. I can’t sleep at night or during the day.”
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif declared an emergency on Tuesday as the death toll from the heat wave soared, with overwhelmed hospitals struggling to treat a surge of casualties and morgues filling to capacity. The army set up emergency treatment centers in the streets and the provincial government closed schools and city offices. The Edhi Foundation, which runs an ambulance service and Karachi’s largest morgue, said it had collected over 600 bodies in recent days. “The first to die were the people on the streets — heroin addicts, beggars, the homeless,” said Anwar Kazmi, a spokesman for the service. “Then it was the elderly, particularly those who didn’t have anyone to take care of them.”
In many ways, the emergency is the product of a perfect storm of meteorological, political and religious factors in Karachi. Chronic shortages of water and electricity have exacerbated the impact of the heat wave, which has brought temperatures up to 45 Celsius, or 113 degrees Fahrenheit, in a crowded city of 20 million people that is normally ventilated by a sea breeze. The health dangers are further exacerbated by the demands of the annual Ramadan fast, when most Muslims abstain from eating or drinking water during daylight hours. In Karachi, that means about 15 hours with no source of hydration — a factor that has particularly affected manual laborers and street vendors, who work outside under the sun.
Dr. Seemin Jamali, head of Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center emergency wing, said 272 people had died there from heat-related conditions, including dehydration. The smaller Abbasi Shaheed Hospital said 56 bodies had been brought in since Monday night. Officials said a majority of the victims were men over the age of 50, especially day laborers from lower-income groups. Although Karachi residents are used to dealing with other emergencies — stockpiling groceries, for example, during bouts of street violence — they seemed at a loss for how to manage the extended heat wave. The electricity shortages are the product of decades-long mismanagement of Pakistan’s national grid, and are often worse at dusk when many people are cooking in preparation for the end of the fast. Not only do the power cuts make air-conditioning units and ceiling fans useless — they also reduce the water supply by shutting down pumps. Ice is in short supply and being sold for a premium in many neighborhoods.
“People are screaming at us on our helpline to get help them, and when we do, they fight to get on the ambulance,” he said. More opposition parties, including the Karachi-based Muttahida Qaumi movement, are blaming the federal government for the crisis, which they say has been compounded by massive power cuts all across Sindh province. Dildar Shah lives in the Karachi suburb on Malir and has lost two neighbors to the extreme conditions. “This is like the Day of Judgment,” he said. “It seems all of us will die in this heat together.”  –NY Times NBC
Death toll soars: The sweltering heat wave in Pakistan has claimed up to 1,011 lives with at least 229 fatalities reported on Wednesday by the government and private hospitals. Local morgues are full. The heat wave in the city of 20 million people coincided with severe electricity cuts, leaving many without fans, water or light, and the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, when many Muslims do not eat or drink during daylight hours. Some shops have refused to sell ice or water during the day, citing religious laws that mean they can be fined. It is also illegal to eat or drink in public from dawn to dusk. An influx of bodies into the morgues has forced medical officials to store bodies in body bags on the floor, said Anwar Kazmi, a senior official of the charitable organization the Edhi Foundation. Air conditioning units at the morgue have stopped working.
The provincial government had done little except try to blame others, he said.According to Dawn News, around 40,000 people have suffered a heat stroke and 7,500 of them were being treated in the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC), said officials. The provincial government of Sindh has imposed a state of emergency at all hospitals and cancelled the leave for doctors. The government also increased stocks of medical supplies at hospitals. –Financial Express, Independent

Red Glow: Powerful solar storm from CME collides with earth’s magnetic field

CME The Extinction Protocol
June 2015 SPACE WEATHER While solar storms are common, these higher category storms are considerably rarer, and in this instance was caused by pure chance. According to the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association, the storm was the result of two smaller ejections coinciding with a more recent fast-moving one. Combined they created what’s known as a G3 storm, which is categorized as ‘Strong.’ This is out of a rating of five categories with G1 being considered commonplace and G5 being ‘Extreme.’ The resulting storm caused a powerful red aurora that could be seen in parts of North America, the UK and was even captured on video in Australia.
While a G3 looks pretty, the damage expected to electrical equipment is considered minimal. G5 storms on the other hand have the potential to knock out entire transformer networks while completely disabling GPS tracking capabilities. The last time the UK experienced a major aurora event was back in March when a powerful G4 storm struck the Earth. G4 storms are extremely rare, with only eight expected every 11 years. G3 storms like this one however are slightly more common with 175 expected every 11 years. –Huffington Post
Auroras The Extinction Protocol
While a “severe” solar storm that sparked dazzling auroras around the world on Monday through Tuesday morning is dying down now, skywatchers shouldn’t stop looking up quite yet. Another potentially powerful solar tempest is expected to impact Earth on Wednesday into Thursday, and it could create more amazing auroras for people in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In particular, the next solar storm is especially well aimed to enhancing aurora activity over North America, according to experts at the National Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) in Boulder, Colorado. Monday’s solar storm hit the G4 or “severe” level, a relatively rare class of storm that can create bright auroras in relatively low latitudes. Such G4 storms — the rating scale goes up to G5 — can also cause problems with power grids on Earth and harm satellites in space. And another storm of that severe magnitude is likely on its way to Earth now. Scientists at the SWPC are anticipating that the solar storm predicted to arrive Wednesday could, yet again, produce beautiful auroras in relatively low latitudes. At the moment, the SWPC is predicting a G3 or “strong” storm on Wednesday and Thursday, but that was the forecast for Monday, as well. –Mashable

Mexico’s Colima Volcano unleashes huge blast of ash and steam

Colima Volcano June 23
June 2015 MEXICO The Colima Volcano in Western Mexico blasted a column of ash and smoke into the air early Tuesday morning. The volcano, also known as the ‘Fire Volcano,’ is one of the most active in Mexico. It is included in the Colima Volcanic Complex, a prominent center of the Western Mexican Volcanic Belt. As of now, the renewed activity has not affected nearby cities. Colima volcano is one of the most active in Central America and one of the potentially most dangerous ones. It has had more than 30 periods of eruptions since 1585, including several significant eruptions in the late 1990s. Scientific monitoring of the volcano began about 20 years ago. Explosions continue to occur from time to time. On 16 May an ash plume rose from Colima to an altitude of 5.5 km (18,000 ft).  –KGNS

Powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Pacific south of Japan

Quake Japan 6 23
June 2015 JAPANA powerful earthquake hit a small chain of islands off the coast of Japan on Tuesday. There is currently no threat of a tsunami, officials said. The U.S. Geological Survey listed it as a 6.3-magnitude quake that struck about 154 miles from Chichi-shima, Japan, which is about 550 miles south of Tokyo.
Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the earthquake was very deep, about 300 miles below the ocean’s surface. –TN
