2013: It rained live fish in Kerala town

   From R Gopakumar DH News Service Thiruvananthapuram: The incident happened at 12.30 in the afternoon at a small junction called Manna in Taliparamba, 20 km from Kannur town. Thursday was one of those pleasant days in this monsoon season in Kerala with only an occasional drizzle disturbing the otherwise clear sky. As farmers wondered when they had last seen it rain cats and dogs, few would have thought that it would rain fish that day. It did! The incident happened at 12.30 in the afternoon at a small junction called Manna in Taliparamba, 20 km from Kannur town. It was a drizzle… at first, nobody noticed it. But soon we saw some slushy objects on the ground and under speeding vehicles. When we picked them up, we were surprised. They were fish, said a visibly surprised Abu, a provision stores owner at Manna. They were very much alive […] Read More

2015: The Strange and Unexplained Phenomenon of Raining Stones

By April Holloway  Throughout history, there have been numerous recorded instances of strange objects falling from the sky–fish, frogs, candy, jellyfish, beans, nuts, seeds, and all manner of bizarre and unlikely objects. A popular theory explains these events as being caused by strong winds that whisk things up from the ground or water and hurl them towards an unsuspecting town many miles away. But can this theory also explain showers of heavy stones that have been known to damage houses and even kill people and livestock? A Long History of Raining Objects One of the first recorded instances of “raining” objects comes from the writings of Roman philosopher and naturalist Pliny the Elder, who documented storms of frogs and fish in the 1st century A.D. in what is now Italy. In the 3rd century A.D., ancient Greek rhetorician and grammarian Athenaeus wrote in his work “The Deipnosophists” (Book VIII): “In Paeonia […] Read More

2019: Retired Climate Scientist About Global Warming Narrative: “I Am A Skeptic”

It isn’t a popular position to take these days, but that doesn’t seem to bother Dr. Anastasios Tsonis, a retired professor of climate studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who contends that so-called “global warming” – at least in the way that climate fanatics tend to talk about it – is largely a myth. by Ethan Huff In his view, accepting the official global warming narrative hook, line, and sinker is rather foolish because the issue is far too complicated to pigeonhole as an entirely human-caused phenomenon that can only be stopped by restricting people’s personal freedoms and taxing them to death. A recent essay he wrote explains some of his reasoning for rejecting the prevailing climate change positions held by others in his field, which largely posit that too much carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases are rapidly priming the planet for a global warming catastrophe in […] Read More

2016: Giant Snowballs Mysteriously Appear in Siberia

Siberia once again proves that the further north you go, the closer you get to a frigid bizarro world where nothing is as it seems and nature messes with minds to make them believe in giants preparing for ice ball battles. Residents of Nyda, a village just north of the Arctic Circle on the Gulf of Ob, have been waking up recently to ever-increasing numbers of giant snowballs and ice balls mysteriously appearing on the beach – perfectly shaped and neatly lined up for miles. We have them only in one place. It’s as if someone spilled them. They are all of different sizes, from tennis balls to volleyball. Who plays volleyball in Siberia? That’s a question for another day. Who or what is making millions of perfect snowballs the size of volleyballs and larger (some measure up to one meter (3.3 feet) in diameter but there’s no sports […] Read More

2016: Researchers Predict That A Mini ICE AGE Is Coming Very Soon

The Earth could be headed for a Mini Ice Age, researchers have warned. Solar activity is predicted to drop by 60 percent in 2030. A new model that predicts the solar cycles more accurately than ever before has suggested that solar magnetic activity will drop by 60 percent between 2030 and 2040, which means in just 15 years’ time, Earth could sink into what researchers are calling a mini ice age. Such low solar activity has not been seen since the last mini ice age, called the Maunder Minimum, which plunged the northern hemisphere in particular into a series of bitterly cold winters between 1645 and 1715. The prediction is based on what’s known as the Sun’s ’11-year heartbeat’. The Sun’s magnetic activity is not the same year in year out, it fluctuates over a cycle that lasts between 10 and 12 years. Ever since this was discovered 172 […] Read More

2014: Dust Bowl Conditions Have Returned To Kansas, Oklahoma And North Texas

In early 1978, a song entitled “Dust in the Wind” by a rock band known as Kansas shot up the Billboard charts.  When Kerry Livgren penned those now famous lyrics, he probably never imagined that Dust Bowl conditions would return to his home state just a few short decades later.  Sadly, that is precisely what is happening.  When American explorers first traveled through north Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, they referred to it as “the Great American Desert” and they doubted that anyone would ever be able to farm it.  But as history has shown, when that area gets plenty of precipitation the farming is actually quite good.  Unfortunately, the region is now in the midst of a devastating multi-year drought which never seems to end. Right now, 56 percent of Texas, 64 percent of Oklahoma and 80 percent of Kansas are experiencing “severe drought”, and the long-range forecast for this […] Read More
