volcanic eruptions cool the world
June 8, 1783 Skaptar Jokull Volcano
in Iceland explodes sending huge clouds of ash high into the sky. Summer never
comes 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 a degree Celsius, and
these effects were felt for about two years.
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 summer. 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
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 pine tree. On 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
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. During the
winter of 1883-1884, snow in
Scotland, Holland, northern Germany and different parts of the US was found to
contain tiny particles of volcanic dust. The dust particles from
Krakatau(Krakatoa) could be seen on a clear day ringing the sun. The mean
global temperature in 1884 was lowered 0.27C.
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
Tibetan Plateau. 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 westerly
back to stacks

is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new religious
ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification
of reality outside personal experience has created 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 the religion
aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - 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 Life 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
condemning 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 cooperation. Cooperation 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.
