Q. What are some of the natural events that you are seeing and how are they affecting us?
Huge ice sheet breaks from Greenland glacier. It is the largest Arctic iceberg to calve since 1962, said Prof Andreas Muenchow of the University of Delaware.
Heat wave and drought slam Europe: The scorching temperatures and dry skies threatening Russia’s wheat harvests have also been beating down on Western Europe, which is forecasting lower output of crops from French wheat to Italian tomatoes.
Muscovites Flee Worst Heat `in 1,000 Years’; Death Rate Doubles: The heat wave that has plagued central Russia since June is the worst in the country’s history, said Alexander Frolov, head of Rosgidromet, the federal weather service. “In 1,000 years, neither we nor our ancestors have observed or recorded anything like this sort of heat,” he said in televised comments.
1,100 missing in China as flooding continues in Asia: The search for survivors in northwestern China is growing desperate in the wake of flash floods and landslides that have killed hundreds and disrupted the lives of millions more across Asia. http://winnipeg.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100809/china-floods-100809/20100809/?hub=WinnipegHome
6 Million Fish Dead in Bolivian Ecological Disaster: Over 1 million fish and thousands of alligators, turtles, dolphins and other river wildlife are floating dead in numerous Bolivian rivers. Unprecedented: Nothing like this has ever been seen in this magnitude in Bolivia. http://www.boliviabella.com/1-million-fish-dead-in-bolivian-ecological-disaster.html
Peru suffers deadly outbreak of bubonic and pneumonic plague: An outbreak of bubonic and pneumonic plague in Peru has killed a 14-year-old boy and infected at least 31 people in a northern coastal province.
With blazing summers, wildfires in one hemisphere and a deep freeze in the other, is, 2010 the year of extreme weather? While Pakistan has been hit by catastrophic flooding, Russia has endured a lethal heatwave. Some 1,200 people have been killed in the deluges sweeping Pakistan, but in Moscow more than 30 are reported to have died in wildfires as temperatures have soared to a new record for the region of 38C (100F).
Pakistan’s flooding sweeps south: Pakistani authorities have evacuated 500,000 people in 11 districts of Sindh and issued warnings to people in low-lying areas of the Indus river.
Burning: Smoke threatens to block out the sun over the village of Marathokampo, Eastern Greece, where extreme heat has also caused wildfires. Meanwhile in Pakistan dozens of villages have been completely submerged by the deadly flooding.
UN says Pakistan floods worse than 2004 tsunami: “This disaster is worse than the tsunami, the 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the Haiti earthquake,” Maurizio Giuliano, a spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told AFP.
He said the 13.8 million affected outstripped the more than three million hit by the 2005 earthquake, five million in the 2004 tsunami and the three million affected by the Haiti earthquake in January this year.
Iceland prepares for second, more devastating volcanic eruption: “This could trigger Katla, which is a vicious volcano that could cause both local and global damage,” Tremors around Eyjafjallajokull were first recorded in early March, but precise prediction of volcanic eruption is difficult, even with the high-tech equipment available to Icelandic geologists. Now that it has happened the only basis for prediction is history — and that does not look good.
“Eyjafjallajokull has blown three times in the past thousand years,” Dr McGarvie told The Times, “in 920AD, in 1612 and between 1821 and 1823. Each time it set off Katla.” The likelihood of Katla blowing could become clear “in a few weeks or a few months”, he said.

Man Made Disasters:
Q: How has the Gulf Oil Spill affected us?
BP Oil Spill Stalls Gulf Loop Current:
Oceanographic satellite data now shows that the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico has stalled as a consequence of the BP oil spill disaster. This according to Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, an Italian theoretical physicist, and major complex and chaotic systems analyst at the Frascati National Laboratories in Italy.
He further notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the “main engine” of the Stream.
The concern now, is whether or not natural processes can re-establish the stalled Loop Current. If not, we could begin to see global crop failures as early as 2011.
Freddie Mac says needs $1.8 billion from taxpayers
(Reuters) – Mortgage finance giant Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) on Monday said it would need another $1.8 billion in aid from taxpayers, bringing its total request since it was taken over by the government two years ago to more than $64 billion.
The second largest U.S. residential mortgage funds provider reported a loss of $6.0 billion, or $1.85 per diluted share, in the second quarter, including a $1.3 billion dividend payment to the government.
That compares with an $8.0 billion loss in the prior quarter and is the best three-month performance in a year. The firm lost $840 million in the second quarter of last year.
The company said losses stemmed primarily from loans purchased or guaranteed between 2005 and 2008.
The U.S. Treasury took control of Freddie Mac and its sister entity, Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB), at the height of the financial crisis in 2008 as loan losses mounted.
Since the government takeover, the two firms together have requested close to $150 billion from the government’s unlimited credit line, scheduled to expire at the end of 2012.
Wars and Rumors of Wars:
Four armies on alert, Khamenei takes charge of Lebanese crisis
Tehranthrew all its weight behind Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah ahead of his contentious speech Monday, Aug. 9, by declaring that “Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan are Iran’s security belt,” and sending its National Security Council Director Saeed Jalili, who is also lead nuclear negotiator, to Beirut Sunday to strengthen his hand. This is reported by debkafile’s Iranian sources.
Upon arrival, the NSC head went into conference with Nasrallah and the spiritual leader’s special aide Ali Akbar Velayati, who arrived in Beirut last Thursday, Aug. 5 after the Lebanese-Israeli border clash, and is still there.
Jalilee then took off for Damascus to give Syrian president Bashar Assad a piece of his mind. According to our sources, in a conversation that went on till early Monday, the Iranian official made it clear that Tehran would not tolerate the deal Assad concluded with Saudi king Abdullah to pull away from – or even reduce – Syrian relations with Hizballah.
“The power of resistance and unity of the Lebanese Army does not let the Zionist regime to even cut a tree. Earlier, the Zionist regime could advance to the borders of Beirut fearlessly. Today the Zionist army gets a strong response from Islamic Resistance…”
His words meant that, for Tehran, the Lebanese Army’s 9th Battalion is no longer a separate, autonomous entity but integral to Hizballah and a partner in its radical mission.
FBI again hunts al Qaeda “dirty bomb” expert – first exposed by DEBKA
US federal agencies Saturday, Aug. 7, announced the hunt was on again for Adnan Al Shukrijumah, 35, who lived in the US for 15 years and may now be Al Qaeda’s mew global operations chief.
debkafile’s counter terror sources confirm the wanted man is indeed dangerous – but not because of his climb up the al Qaeda ladder but owing to the unique task first assigned him seven years ago to carry out a radiological bombing attack in America.
This task was first revealed by DEBKA-Net-Weekly 132, the Nov. 17, 2003, whose sources reported that already then, in October of that year, Shukriumah was the quarry of a secret manhunt in the US and Canada. He was employed at the time as a nuclear engineering student at MacMaster University’s nuclear 5-megawatt research reactor in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada before suddenly disappearing.
His absence was noted when a large quantity of radioactive material was missed from the university’s reactor. It was suspected then that Osama bin Laden had entrusted the “student” with preparing a “dirty bomb” attack in a North American city.
Shukrijumah has never been traced since.
Born in Saudi Arabia, Shukrijumah was brought to the United States as a young child by his father, an imam, and mother and lived inNew York and Florida for 15 years.
In its original report of 2003, DEBKA-Net-Weekly disclosed:
American authorities first heard about Al ShukriJumah’s terror mission on al Qaeda’s behalf from Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the senior operative of the fundamentalist network captured at his home in Karachi one night in March.
Sheikh Mohammed described the wanted man as a one-man cell trained to build from scratch radiological bombs capable of environmental contamination. From Sheikh Mohammed, US counter-terror agencies learned for the first time about the single-cell al Qaeda chemical, biological and nuclear strike-teams consisting of lone operatives trained to operate solo.
The experts had previously assumed that each unconventional weapons cell
numbered several members and was supported by broad logistical backup crews [like the network which carried out the 9/11 attacks].

Castro said the most recent U.N. sanctions on Iran will trigger a nuclear holocaust if the United States inspects the country’s ships come September, as called for in the June resolution.
Only world pressure on Obama can avert the conflagration that will bring all major economies to a standstill, he said.
“In this critical situation President Barack Obama is the one who will have to give the order for this so-often announced and proclaimed attack,” Castro said, calling on world leaders to weigh in with the U.S. president before it’s too late.

Aug 9, 7:16 AM (ET)
By HYUNG-JIN KIMSEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea fired about 110 rounds of artillery Monday near its disputed sea border with South Korea, the South’s military said, amid high tension over the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on North Korea.
The firing came shortly after South Korea ended five-day naval drills off the west coast that the North called a rehearsal for an invasion, vowing to retaliate.
Iran ‘digging mass graves for US troops’ in case of invasion
Graves being prepared in case America attacks, says former Revolutionary Guards commander.
Iran has dug mass graves in which to bury US troops if America attacks the country, a former commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard has said.
The digging of the graves appears to be a show of bravado after the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said last week that the US military had a contingency plan to attack Iran, although he thought a military strike was probably a bad idea.
