The Rate at Which Seas are rising and Climate Change is progressing
@elaineg, interesting question for the mystics and religious theorists as well as the paleo climate scientists who are trying to figure out our planet's future.
So what happens to souls?
First of all the planet is not going to disappear. The worse case scenario involves a sixth extinction where 75% of life on this earth dies out. Many scientists say the sixth extinction which is manmade is underway. But we also are trying to un-make it and there is hope about that. We have brought species back before and we healed the ozone layer. We just need to get rid of the GOP cult and get going on the healing. Even if the extinction happens, there will still be a planet and there will be species here and likely there will be some humans. But no guarantees.
There are plenty of books and articles about that subject written by science writers who are grounded and evidenced based. Perhaps someone can suggest some here. The Uninhabitable Planet is good, but probably too scary for many here. I know I had to skip over some parts. Bill McKibben's latest book Falter is also good and he's more hopeful.
Here's a short article on the current extinction that is factual and not so scary: https://theweek.com/articles/823904/sixth-mass-extinction-explained
In a vivid near death guided meditation I did, I felt I left my body and went to the edge of the earth. There I saw souls circling the earth, flying around the earth and forming a glow of soul light. I also wonder if some may travel back to other stars where they came from. Sometimes I feel our community tribe comes from somewhere long ago from an ancient civilization. I use to think we came from a distant star but I keep hearing ancient stories in my head so I wonder if our tribe is reaching out to us from the past. So when we die, I feel we will hang out here and help those who survive get through the next thousand years.
I found this article today about rising sea levels and the impact to real-estate in certain Florida Counties.
Very interesting. Here are some highlights from the Tampa Bay Times.
Using a combination of climate change projections, elevation mapping, tidal gauge readings and property data, a new report concludes what many in the Tampa Bay region likely already suspected: that properties in this area are at growing risk of losing value because of sea level rise.
The case study report, done by consulting firm McKinsey, points to Pinellas, Citrus and Manatee counties as three of the nine Florida counties facing the greatest threat of property devaluation because of sea level rise by 2050. That’s because flooding, especially when it’s a frequent event rather than the byproduct of hurricanes, makes properties less attractive to buyers.
The other six counties were St. Johns, Lee, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe.
Year 2050 may sound far away, but it’s also the endpoint for 30-year mortgages that are being initiated now. Which is why it’s important for homeowners to be armed with as much information about their properties’ flood risk as possible, experts say.
Currently, maps created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency are the standard tool for determining flood risk, but those don’t include sea level rise. First Street’s data will allow anyone to search an address and see the flood risk, plus will account for future adjustments due to climate change, the group said.
Unlike some other states, such as Texas, Florida law does not require that sellers disclose a property’s flood history when it’s purchased.
@lovendures. Tampa, Clearwater, St Pete and that whole area is a big part of my childhood so this inevitable outcome is especially heartbreaking for me. I have felt this coming for ten years, no surprise, it is science. I published two posts on this site back in 2014 about it. '
But there was so much denial around it for so long that it was easy to not think about it. Governor Rick Scott forbid any state employees from using the words, global warming or climate change or sea level rise when he was governor, so he could keep the charade going and please his Republican oil sponsors.
I posted a vision of South Florida at the end of the 21st century as a watery graveyard and playground for boating and diving enthusiasts. Divers will be exploring the ruins of home and shopping centers that will be underwater.
It is tragic, heartbreaking, and was totally avoidable. The Koch Brothers and the other oligarchs, including Putin, the world's richest human, should be stripped of all of their wealth and property and that money given to compensate those whose lives will be ruined by this. But since all of the world's coastal cities will also be lost - including NYC, Shanghai, too many to name, then all of the oligarchs' money will not be able to cover even a pittance of the loss.
I knew this would be of interest to you, I have read your visions and thoughts on the subject of Florida. What I find interesting is that Florida does not require sellers to disclose flooding history. I wonder when that will change. Also interesting about the 30 mortgages being finished when things really will "underwater". Boston will be a very different city for sure. I wonder when we will stop saying the floods are unusual and they simply become normal? And the how long until things are always underwater.
@lovendures Thanks for posting. I've been reading the sea level maps for Boston and Florida shorelines for many years. These maps show sea level by street, so prospective buyers can figure out how low a property is and where the floods are going to hit first.
Humans have a hard time thinking long-term, but mortgage lenders, property insurers and underwriters have known what is coming for decades. Even while their lobbyists have supported the climate-denying GOP, the companies know climate change is coming and they will not be insuring or providing mortgages for properties they know will be inundated by the sea.
It is not just residences and commercial buildings that are at risk. At some point, local governments will give up repairing their infrastructures -- bridges and roads-- that have been washed out by storms. You can't keep spending millions when you know that there will be a another storm in a few years. Bill McKibben wrote about this problem back in his seminal 2010 book Eaarth. The solution is not to invest near the coastlines, and along mountains and riverbanks. Countries like the U.S. that are ruled by GOP oligarchs will become like third world countries in that their infrastructures in vulnerable areas will crumble.
If I were thinking of the best place to live, I'd head to rolling farmland near the Great Lakes on the Canada side.
Hi. This is my first time posting here. I have had several dreams over the past 3 years that feel interconnected. On 9/2/17 I dreamt of Quicksilver (mercury) and how it was destroying the oceans. A man said, "it is devouring us." Everyone was trying to find out why it was killing people. Flash forward to August 2019, I dreamt that God was upset that there was so much hate in the world. His hair was flaky; not lustrous and smooth. His hair was getting brittle and losing its shine. He feels like giving up to teach a lesson. I begged him no- in the age of Trumpism we will destroy ourselves."
In May 2020, I dreamt that someone ate raw fish and it made their spine from the bottom curve up and to the side and grew a tail. I wonder if it was related to Covid-19?
I can't help but think that there is something severely wrong with our oceans and fish and that this, coupled with the increased hate, will wreak havoc on the stability of the planet and humanity. I am also sensing that souls are leaving Earth to travel to another planet.
The late author Ray Bradbury produced a notable body of work and was a sci-fi visionary whose writings bordered 'non-fiction'...
' The Martian Chronicles ', a poignant look at a futuristic world, is multi-layered and rather prophetic. This novel was made into a series for TV in 1980, and though it's simplisticly produced by today's standards it is still iconic.
I do see that what you are sensing in regard to souls leaving Earth to travel to other planets is right! We have the capability of traveling in our soul bodies to other dimensions on other planets, and it isn't fiction.
For many, many centuries this has been held as esoteric knowledge by the ancients who practiced soul travel, and is disguised in the texts of many religions. In the last century this practice has been gradually revealed as more souls are being brought to ascension than ever before.
As fantastical as it seems .... "....stranger things in Heaven and Earth.... "
@bomoh. Thank you for weighing in. We know that climate change is accelerating but no one has seen a one time global tsunami ever happening. Our predictions do not describe it. They can be made to fit your theory, but I don't see it.
There is just one prediction that might fit your theory but it could just as easily be about some serious flooding in the U.S. from a bad hurricane season. The other predictions you cite do not match a one-time tsunami that swamps all coastlines all over the world.
Much of the sudden climate change ice core data I've seen doesn't show seas rising in a day or week but in hundreds and even thousands of years. Sudden or abrupt climate change in geological time is measured in hundreds and thousands of years instead of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years. Here's what wiki says for Abrupt Climate change:
Timescales of events described as 'abrupt' may vary dramatically. Changes recorded in the climate of Greenland at the end of the Younger Dryas, as measured by ice-cores, imply a sudden warming of +10 °C (+18 °F) within a timescale of a few years. Other abrupt changes are the +4 °C (+7.2 °F) on Greenland 11,270 years ago or the abrupt +6 °C (11 °F) warming 22,000 years ago on Antarctica. By contrast, the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum may have initiated anywhere between a few decades and several thousand years. Finally, Earth Systems models project that under ongoing greenhouse gasemissions as early as 2047, the Earth's near surface temperature could depart from the range of variability in the last 150 years, affecting over 3 billion people and most places of great species diversity on Earth.
The event I have been most concerned about is a massive methane gas release from the Arctic circle. That could accelerate the heat. Not in a day, but over a few years perhaps.
Hi @han7911. I actually think these dreams may be messages for you or for someone close to you personally. Mercury poisoning is something to be concerned about with ingestion of large amounts of certain types of seafood, like tuna and salmon. (This is not really pollution related, the mercury is naturally occurring and just becomes concentrated in large fish that are on the top of the food chain)
Since the two common threads in your dreams are health issues (dry flaky hair and bone problems) and the ocean/fish, I'm thinking that maybe you ought to do some research on heavy metal toxicity (specifically mercury poisoning) or talk to you doctor about it...
I am reading Your Nostradamus Factor right now -- in fact, I will crosspost this in the other thread about books, as I think many will find it a fascinating read.
Anyway, the author (Ingo Swann), argues that everyone can see the future, and many of us often do. He divides this ability -- what he calls the "Nostradamus Factor" -- into four categories.
The third category involves communal visions. He points to several big events that were foreseen by MANY in the community. Such events include the sinking of the Titanic, the assassination of JFK, and the tragedy at Aberfan.
Such events were foreseen in the months leading up to the event but increased in occurrence immediately leading up to it. In many cases, the warning was dismissed or ignored. (There are a few reports of people who, at the last minute, canceled their voyage on the Titanic, for example.)
My point is we should be paying very close attention to our predictions as well as the predictions of others we know, many of whom may not consider themselves to be "psychic." Who is dreaming of drowning? Of great floods? Of tsunami?
Something to consider, at any rate.
There is at least a person i know how who drew what it will comes. Image of flood. One of the image was then recognised as a not famous place in Miami....It was last year... Miami became the Venice
I read this today and felt the earth shaking: For the first time in history, every month so far this year has been at least 1°C greater than the 1951-1980 climate baseline.
If you can't decipher the graph, just check out the colors, as we move from 1920 to 2020.
@bomoh. You wrote earlier that you were here to expand the perspective, but it seems you are here to obscure the true cause of climate change. Fossil fuel companies love this kind of obfuscation and they promote books like that prophecy book and sun spot theories. I do not have time for this.
Fossil fuel burning has caused climate change. The science is incontrovertible. The fossil fuel companies are the greatest Darth Vaders of our world. Their owners and investors shall be held responsible for their crime.
The cause of climate change is not up for debate, just as whether the earth is flat is not up for debate.
@bomoh. There is a more recent experience of climate change. In April of 1815, Mount Tambora exploded in a powerful eruption that killed tens of thousands of people in Indonesian.
The following year became known as the "year without a summer" when unusually cold, wet conditions swept across Europe and North America. The year 1816 is known as the Year Without a Summer because of severe climate abnormalities that caused average global temperatures to decrease significantly. Summer temperatures in Europe were the coldest on record between the years of 1766–2000. This resulted in major food shortages across the Northern Hemisphere.
This was the timing when Mary Shelley wrote her famous novel, Frankenstein.
