Skaptar Jokull Volcano in Iceland explodes sending huge clouds of ash high into
Summer never came
to the Arctic that year.
All along the Bering Sea coast and Norton
Sound area the Eskimos starved to death.
The volcanic cloud from the
Icelandic volcano drifted across the Pacific Ocean reaching Japan where 1783
became known as the year summer never came.
Sulfurous gases combined with water vapor
high in the atmosphere to produce a
cloud of tiny sulfuric acid crystals which reflected a considerable amount
of solar radiation back
out into space.
This lowered the temperature of the earth by about
1° Celsius, and these effects were felt for about two years.
April 5, 1815 Mount Tambora Sumbawa,
Indonesia erupts with such violence
explosions could be heard for 1,000 miles.
Ash fell two feet deep
over 850 miles away.
Darkness cloaked a 300 mile area around the
volcano for three days.
Mount Tambora lost 4,100 feet in height and
threw out an estimated 36.4 cubic miles of debris.
Volcanic debris was
hurled into the atmosphere where it circled the earth, darkened the sky and
eventually helped to make 1816 known as the year without a
In the northeastern part of the US and the Ohio Valley frost,
ice and snow were common in June; heavy frosts throughout July and even ice
storms; frost and ice were common in August.
Snow fell in Springfield,
Massachusetts on September 11, and colder weather settled in again during the
final days of September with ice up to one-fourth inch thick. October, although
fairly normal, had its share of frost and ice.
Coseguina Volcano in
Nicaragua erupted in January of 1835.
The volcano's erupted
continuously for seven hours creating total darkness within a radius of 50
miles of the volcano.
This eruption of Coseguina was blamed for the
cool summer of 1836.
That summer was nearly as cold as the summer of
1816 in western Pennsylvania
and northeastern Ohio.
There were frosts in every month of the year,
and the only true summer weather was limited to the first 14 days of September.
During the period 1817-1890, 1836 had the coldest summer of record.
August 26, 1883 Krakatau(Krakatoa) erupts
creating a gigantic cloud of ash that shot upward to a height of 17 miles and
spread out like a huge oak tree.
August 27 the darkness from Krakatau (Krakatoa) eruption extended 100 miles out
from the volcano with the ash cloud from Krakatau (Krakatoa) rising an
estimated 50,000 feet above the Earth's surface.
Then came a second
eruption estimated to be equal to 200 megatons of TNT - about 13,000 times the
yield of the Little Boy bomb (13 to
16 KT) that devastated Hiroshima, Japan, and four times the yield of the
Tsar Bomba (50 MT), the largest
nuclear weapon ever built.
The 1883 eruption ejected approximately 21
cubic kilometres (5.0 cu mi) of rock, ash, and pumice, and generated the
loudest sound historically reported: the cataclysmic explosion was distinctly
heard as far away as Perth in Australia approximately 1,930
miles (3,110 km), and the island of Rodrigues near Mauritius approximately
3,000 miles (5,000 km) distant.
The sound waves from the explosion
circled the Earth seven times.

In the dust of the
Tibetan Plateau, with much thinking and careful calculation, the detonation of
thermonuclear warheads could blast fine particulate into the upper atmosphere
working in much the same way as Krakatoa.
The Tibetan Plateau is a
significant dust source area of great importance. Synoptic dynamics and remote
sensing tracing of a dust storm on 3 to 5 March, 2003 in Lhasa on South Tibet
demonstrate that the Tibetan Plateau possesses all factors and conditions of
generating dust storms.
Accompanied with this dust storm is a strong
ascending stream on the Plateau which has raised various sizes of dust
particles into different levels.
The lifted coarse particles were
largely fallen down and accumulated as loess on the eastern Tibetan Plateau,
and the fine particles were translated by the westerly jet and subsided in the
northern Pacific Ocean.
The spatial-temporal distribution of dust
storms between years 1961 and 2000 on the Plateau shows that
dust storms mainly occur in winter and
early spring with high
frequency, and the path of
dust storm moves gradually from south to north, which is closely coupled
with the northward moving of the westerly jet from winter to spring over the
The Tibetan Plateau is one of the key dust source
areas for long-distance transport because its high occurring frequency and
elevation cause fine particles easily to be lifted into the zone of the

new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
