There is heavy, grey-white smoke covering the rainforest in Indonesia. I hear the word ‘trifecta’. (Villager) Latest Predictions/August 2019
Thank you for finding this. I don't think I articulated the word 'trifecta' too well back in June. I felt that this referred to an air (smog or haze), earth (earthquake, landslides or volcano) and water (flood or tsunami) event happening around the same time for Indonesia. I hope Indonesia will be spared the other two.
August 17 –Predictions are coming true that the oceans are becoming to hot for fish to survive. In Alaska, the news is that salmon are dying from this summer’s unprecedented heat wave. The story also mentions another prediction we’ve made: that climate change is happening much faster than predicted.

August 15 -- Bananas! (In the news). (Anne) Predicted June 6, 2019 for August 2019.A deadly fungus may cause banana extinction.
This is a tragic event if it really comes to extinction. I hope they can figure out another strain that will survive the fungus.
Anne got this at the June Read the Future Night but didn't want to post it because she was unsure if she could really read the future. Well, looks like she can, and so I've posted all of her other visions too.
Thanks, Anne, for finally having the courage to post your visions.
Perhaps others will learn from her experience that we can all do this. The next Read the Future night will likely be in November.
According to the article the haze is caused by drought, wild fires and south west monsoon winds. Could this be the trifecta?
- Feedback loops in climate change unstoppable.(Michele L.) predicted 1/26/19 for July 2019
@lenor and @villager, I see a trifecta in the Indonesia situation too - a kind of perfect storm of coalescing events that creates a global environmental calamity. It might be something that is revealed over time. For now it could be the result of a perfect storm of events following the destruction of their rain forests for the purpose of the lucrative palm oil business: Drought, monsoon winds, and wild fires from peat. Those fires are releasing the worst of the greenhouse gases- methane and could be the straw that breaks the camels back with climate change.
@lenor yes, I think it could well be a trifecta of causes. I wasn't aware of the role of the drought in this year's fires. It is also the first time I have heard it referred to as a drought, rather than a dry season.
@jeanne-mayell, that is something I hadn't thought about, the fires in Brazil and Russia immediately came to mind - together with Indonesia's fires they present an enormous event. We probably are already on an accelerated climate change trajectory as scientists have been warning. I agree - I think we will understand the impact in hindsight only.

We really need more "submarine" predictions in the group readings! So many "hits", it is hard to choose which one to associate.
Now, North Korea is developing a submarine capable of delivering missiles (nuclear), which could put Guam and the US west coast in range.
I finally had time to look back and found a few more hits:
Under latest predictions for 2019:
- Korea will launch another test missile. Predicted August 14 for the second half of August. (Bluebelle)
- Gathering of world leaders, important politicians. (Doris)
- Upsets in Europe are confusing. It’s also steamy and hot. (Andrew Posey)
In addition to the confusion regarding Brexit and the queen suspending parliament yesterday, there has been a heatwave over Northern Europe.
Another possible hit for August 2019 from the June predictions:
- China tries to corner the market on corn/ethanol. (Baba)
I don’t know that they are trying to corner the market, but they are definitely indicating that they will have very high demand and that they will be importing a lot of corn. I’m not sure how the tariffs affect this as far as US imports and the current administration has just dealt US corn farmers a blow by lowering the amount of ethanol required to be bought by petroleum companies.
Trump is literally giving the ethanol market to China on a silver platter. 15 US-based ethanol plants are closing and others are cutting back production because the trump admin has given 85 exeptions to oil refiners from having to blend ethanol and biodesel into their fuel. “If people connected to agriculture decide to vote for the president, they're just voting to cut off their own economic prosperity..."
