Signs 20 – 2017, Worst Ever for Earthquakes and Fireballs

| January 8, 2018

Planet X SignsIn the last installment in this series, Signs 19 – Global Critical Mass in 2018?, we posted our global earthquake and fireball data through November 2017 and raised the possibility that “2018 could quite literally become a critical mass year.”

This question was on my mind as 2017 wound down the clock toward one of my favorite times of the year. The first week of the new year. A time of quiet as folks relax from the stresses of the holiday season and begin the transition to business as usual.

For me, this is a wonderful time because I sense and genuinely feel this period of calm. I call it the “me time window,” and in years past, the bliss of this window could last as much as two weeks. An excellent time for me to contemplate my options and interests for the coming year.

As in years past, this breathe-easy window started on the first of January, and I hoped it would last for a week to ten days. Dumb luck that as it only lasted until January 3, 2018, when I got an email from researcher J. P. Jones. The email contained a one-sentence message and an attachment with the December 2017 data. J. P.’s message read, “I don’t think these slides will give you any comfort.” Talk about a monumental understatement.

Mayan CalendarSimply stated, in the five years following Mayan Calendar date of December 21, 2012, the explosive growth we’re seeing has not abated. Rather, it just continues to grow, confirming that December 21, 2012, was the harbinger of what is coming.

Pundits and debunkers tell us the Mayan Calendar prophecy was a fake news farce, and they have a free hand in this mockery. Why? Because 99.999% of the public happily swallows such lies as opposed to investing the time and effort needed to vet the implied proposition.  That this false zeitgeist reality represents the position that this is what smart people do.

However, the empirical data in this article paints a very different picture. One that shows us that those who buy into this false zeitgeist reality are demonstrating the kind of critical thinking one finds in a sack full of hammers.

With this in mind, let’s review this empirical data and then move to the real question at hand. How does someone in awareness cope with the impending catastrophic failure of this false zeitgeist reality? But first, it’s time to look up.

Fireballs for the Past Five Years

Although fireballs are reported worldwide, the American Meteor Society which is primarily focused on North America events is the source for this dataset.

AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs

Multistate/country fireballs, cross the borders of multiple states and countries. This is a critical category in the dataset because of the distance these fireballs must travel to be reported across large geographic areas.

AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs

As of December 2018, this category shows a consistent year-to-year increase for the month of December beginning with 2013 and ending with 2017. What is is most disturbing is the overall increase in this category doubled in a just five years. What this tells us is that the Planet X system is throwing more big rocks at us than ever before.

AMS Huge Event Fireballs

It is a commonplace occurrence for Multistate / Country Fireballs to be reported as huge events because a huge event occurs when fireball reports are received from 100 or more eyewitness observers. As previously reported, we saw huge spikes in February 2016 and September 2014.

AMS Huge Event Fireballs

The third huge spike occurred in November 2017, but the most stunning spike was in December 2017 which when compared with previous years, makes 2017 the most disturbing year in this study with two consecutive spikes. Especially when we weigh this data against the total monthly fireballs for 2013 to 2017.

AMS Monthly Total Fireballs

When we look at the monthly total for fireballs for this five-year study dating back to 2013, November 2015 stands as the highest month on record in the dataset. However, this one-month does not represent a trend but it is more of an anomalous month.

AMS Monthly Total Fireballs

So while December 2017 is the second highest month in this five year data set, it does represent a coherent trend and if we are to waive the relative trend value of November 2015 against December 2017, then December 2017 is certainly the highest month on record.

Of all the categories in this dataset, this category is one is the most worrisome. However, when we look at this in a broader range going back to 2009, the numbers are stunning.

AMS Total Yearly Fireballs

BolideA meteor is also what we call a falling star and if the meteor falls to the ground, it become a meteorite. However, a meteor large enough to appear brighter in the sky than the planet Venus is a fireball.

If a fireball is big enough it will explode in the atmosphere and as such is designated as a bolide. Likewise, bolides that are twice as bright as the moon and explode are called superbolides, such as the one that detonated over Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013.

AMS Total Yearly Fireballs

As of December 2017, the data shows us a steep increase in the total annual fireballs for the period of 2009 through 2017, where we see here is a year-to-year increase over a period of 9 years amounting to nearly 800%. Anyone who calls this “natural variability” is either a liar or the fool of a liar, because as of this publication date, our dataset shows that 2017 was the highest year ever for fireball observation reports.

Therefore, the reversal hoped for in this trend has not materialized. Rather, what we’re seeing is a clear warning – beware of falling rocks. The question is then a matter of when, not if, and 2018 is a clear candidate for a major event with a serious loss of life.

While fireballs give us an idea of what the Planet X system is throwing our way, our other major dataset, earthquakes of all magnitudes tells us that when we stop looking up and begin looking down, the bad news just keeps on coming.

Earthquakes for the Past 18 Years

Our earthquake data set, used the total number of all earthquakes of all magnitudes. We do this because for over a decade we have observed how the USGS is cooking the books when it comes to earthquake magnitudes. Ask yourself, when was the last time that you saw the USGS not downgrading the magnitude of an earthquake?

Why downgrades? Because if you arbitrarily set a threshold such as earthquakes of a magnitude 5.0 and above, the data will be intentionally skewed by the government. However, this manipulation of the data is not effective when earthquakes of all magnitudes are measured.

Earthquakes World Wide Past 18 Years

At the outset of our Signs series, J. P. Jones created a dataset spreadsheet that tracks the total number of earthquakes each month for the years 1997 through 2017.

Earthquakes World Wide Past 18 Years

For quick visual reference, the cell background colors vary from light yellow on the low end to dark red on the high end. The last of the light yellow cells shows 1729 total earthquakes in January 2013. Then in February, we went into the red with 6,078 total earthquakes, and we’ve stayed in the red ever since. However, when we reduce the dataset range, the real trends become obvious, beginning with January 2013.

Global Earthquakes of all Magnitudes Jan 2013 to Dec 2017

When we look at annual global earthquakes for all magnitudes for the period January 2013 to December 2017, the overall trend appears to have a pattern of “normalcy.”

Global Earthquakes of all Magnitudes Jan 2013 to Dec 2017

Another way to look at it is that the data set represents a five-year period of earthquakes where we see the kind of natural variability pattern the USGS wants us to see. That is assuming we follow their rules and arbitrarily truncate the dataset. So what happens when we refuse to play along?

Global Earthquakes of all Magnitudes – Jan 1997 to Dec 2017

When we look at the period of January 1997 through December 2012 for earthquakes of all magnitude, what we see is a pattern that arguably suggests natural variability. That is until we come to the Mayan Calendar date of December 21, 2012.

Global Earthquakes of all Magnitudes – Jan 1997 to Dec 2017

As of February 2013, the trend explodes upwards like a missile launch, and it never comes down. While there was a slight dip in 2015, clean what we see here is that more earthquakes (of all magnitudes) occurred in 2017 than ever before.

For those in awareness, what does this portend for 2018?

Need to Know

On January 4, 2018, the day after J. P. Jones delivered the final datasets for 2017, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck the Bay Area early that day and an article by the LA Times caught my eye.

LA Times, January 4, 2007
Bay Area earthquake rattled 9.8 million people — and offers a preview of something much worse

It was a sharp jolt but also a warning of something much more violent that could be coming.

Epicenter - January 4, 2017

An estimated 9.8 million people felt a magnitude 4.4 earthquake that rumbled across the Bay Area early Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

It was felt throughout the region, with people more than 150 miles away reporting to the agency that they felt the shaking for perhaps five to 10 seconds.

The epicenter of the earthquake is in the area of the Hayward fault, one of the most feared in the Bay Area, which could produce a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake and is directly underneath heavily populated areas.

The reason why this article caught my eye, is that I’m a survivor of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Also known as the “World Series earthquake,” this 6.9 earthquake killed 63 people and injured 3,757.

1989 San Francisco Earthquake

When it struck on October 17 at 5:04 p.m. PDT, I was a few miles south of the Candlestick Park in San Francisco, and it was a defining moment in my life.

In the days leading up to the earthquake, I remember the foreshocks, mild tremor preceding the major event and how a few people mentioned their concern about a larger event, but only in passing so as not to provoke accusations of fear mongering. As for me, I’d only moved to the area a few months earlier and had never experienced an earthquake in my whole life.

In 2009, I joined a small group of folks for a hike in the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, approximately 10 miles northeast of Santa Cruz, CA. We bent the rules a bit you might say as we hiked into the very epicenter of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. It was a profound moment to stand in that very spot and to see the land ripped to shreds like a cheap rag doll.

That experience stayed with me, and the following year, I released my video Precognition and The Five Stages of Catastrophism on July 4, 2010.

The purpose of doing the video was that I’m trying to help people in awareness who are attempting to explain what they know to those whom they love and care for. Not because they’re succeeding, but because they are consistently being humiliated and mocked into silence.

The interesting thing about this video is that over the years, several who follow my work always tell me that it was one of my best videos, even though a third of the viewer ratings are negative. Then again, that’s not surprising as people who are in denial are vicious when responding to anyone or anything that impinges upon the comfortable bliss of their bubble of ignorance.

If you have never watched this video, I strongly urge you to do it now, and if you watched it years ago, I strongly urge you to watch it again. The point is that the concepts I presented in that video in 2010 are no less valid, if not more so in 2018.

This is because, if you are an awareness 2018 will be the year when you will be sorely tempted to proselytize awareness to loved ones and those you care for because they are starting to see a few of the things that you’ve been talking about. Do it now, and you will be punished no less different than you would in 2010.

Never forget, denial is an immensely powerful human emotion, and in this year, those who have lived in denial are going to see and experience unsettling things. When they do, it will be no different than what I saw in 1989 before the Loma Prieta earthquake, when those around me talked about the foreshocks in hushed whispers.

Let me be blunt. By now everybody in your circle of family and friends, already thinks that you are as crazy as a peach orchard boar because of your interest in Planet X. Do not let the passing of events that challenge their ignorance of bliss bubbles, trick you into thinking that things have changed. They have not!

This is why you must continue to do what many of you have likely been doing all along – keeping to yourselves about this. Only share information on a need to know basis. Do not let troubling events push a magic button on your job that makes your mouth flap like a cheap tent in the wind. In fact, this is when you need to be even more reserved about what you know and who you discuss it with.

What do you wait for? You wait for those in your circle of family and friends to come into awareness on their own. When they do, they will know who you are and what you are doing and eventually they may come to you for information.

In the meantime, what you can expect from them as events begin to trouble them, there will be spontaneous taunting remarks such as, “no doubt you’ll go crazy about this.” When you hear this, you know their denial is beginning to crumble a bit around the edges, but this is not an invitation to go crazy.

Rather, when you get the spontaneous remarks, say nothing and change the topic. If they persist, just say something like “I have no interest in provoking any more of your humiliating attacks,” and then say nothing more. The point here is that you don’t wait for them to ask you about the information curiously. You make them beg for it because if they do not, their interest will likely boomerang back into denial and they will lambaste you without pity.

Will 2018 have a parallel in history? Perhaps so. In 1942 the war was going badly for the Allies until the British victory at the Second Battle of El Alamein. It was a critical turning point, but not one to be overplayed.

In a speech to the nation, Winston Churchill said, “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

In a similar light, 2018 will be the end of a beginning, which does not mean that it shall be an excuse to overplay your hand with those in denial.
