Cold Records Shattered Across Canada, Driving Energy Usage To All-Time Highs; Extreme Freeze Sweeps U.S.; Blizzards Hit Hawaii; + Wintry Weather Traps 300 Oil Workers On North Sea Rig

(December 21, 2022)

As hinted at above, Mauna Loa began erupting on Nov 27 and stopped on Dec 13.

It was the first time it has actively erupted since 1984 (solar minimum of cycle 20) — and is a sign of the times…

Volcanic eruptions are one of the key climatic forcings driving Earth into its next bout of global cooling. They have been shown to increase in both number and explosivity during times of prolonged solar decline, which is thought to be due to an influx of cosmic rays (CRs) penetrating/exciting silica-rich magma. During solar mins the Sun’s magnetic field weakens and the outward pressure of the solar wind decreases, which allows more CRs to enter the inner solar system, including our planet’s atmosphere.

Hawaii Democratic Primaries: Gov. David Ige, Ed Case, Tulsi Gabbard Lead Results

In other high-profile contests, former congressman Ed Case appeared to be headed back to Washington to represent Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District, while Rep. Tulsi Gabbard easily won re-election in the party nomination to represent Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District.

Raketen-Panik auf Hawaii: Simulierter Alarm vom Pazifikkommando

(31.1.2018) Am 13. Januar wurde durch die Katastrophenschutzbehörde auf Hawaii ein Alarm ausgegeben, der im Anflug auf die Insel befindliche Raketen suggerierte. Nahe lag für die Bewohner der Insel ein Angriff mit Nuklearraketen aus Nordkorea. Die Sirenen heulten, wie anderthalb Monate zuvor geübt. Die Menschen suchten irgendwo Schutz. Der U.S.-Sender „NBC“ verkündet während der Fernsehübertragung eines Basketballspiels in einer Audio-Botschaft („dies ist keine Übung“), das U.S. Pazifikkommando habe einen laufenden Raketenangriff auf Hawaii geortet.

Erst fast 40 Minuten später gaben die Behörden Entwarnung. Es gab keine anfliegenden Raketen.

False missile alert plays key role in Hawaii governor race

(9.8.2018) While Ige acknowledged that he was “ultimately responsible” for the mishap, he repeatedly pointed to “human error” and a low-level state employee who sent the alert as the cause for the panic. But Ige ordered his defense department to roll out the nuclear attack plan before it was ready, providing the framework for the error.

The Ige administration has denied an Associated Press request for emails, phone records and calendars related to the missile alert, something Hanabusa also criticized .
