California's megastorm: Rain, snow, flooding - and maybe drought relief

Northern California and the San Joaquin Valley are bracing for potential flooding this weekend, as a massive weather system known as an atmospheric river builds off the coast.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch Thursday, stretching from Saturday afternoon through Monday, for 24 northern counties, including the six-county Sacramento region. Officials warned of flooding in streams and creeks that normally aren't much more than a trickle. The Sacramento River is expected to roar with its highest flows since 2006 and send a huge gush of water into the Yolo Bypass, the massive floodplain west of Sacramento engineered to prevent the city from getting swamped.

Tuolumne River to rise to make room in Don Pedro for storm runoff

The lower Tuolumne River ran at its highest volume past Modesto in half a decade Wednesday, and it will get even bigger over the next week.

As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Tuolumne flow had tripled to about 3,000 cubic feet per second at the Ninth Street Bridge, according to the California Department of Water Resources. It will reach about 7,000 cfs at the peak of the planned releases. The river will rise high on the banks but not top them, said Calvin Curtin, spokesman for the Turlock Irrigation District. It operates Don Pedro in a partnership with the Modesto Irrigation District. Read more here: http://www.modbee.com/news/article124625034.html#storylink=cpy

Build Your Own Chembuster and Take down Chemtrails!

The Cloudbuster as designed by Wilhelm Reich did something amazingly well-it absorbed the negative orgone energy that surrounds us and induced rain. It made rain happen.

The main trouble with Wilhelm Reich's Cloudbuster was that because it pulled negative orgone energy from the space surrounding it, the cloudbuster accumulated, and soon became saturated with, negative orgone energy.

Arctic ice melt poses a risk of uncontrollable climate change, scientists say

Melting in the Arctic is an example of climate changes that, if not stopped and reversed, could become drivers of climate change in their own right.

A number of the tipping points relate to shrinking areas of ice, both on sea and on land. As you might expect, sea ice and land ice are both highly reflective, acting like mirrors reflecting much of the sun's energy back into space. When ice cover is reduced, that energy is instead absorbed as heat, leading to a rise in temperatures. This, in turn, triggers further melting and additional temperature rises.

Fukushima: The Extinction-Level Event That No One Is Talking About

A devastating earthquake has hit the coast of Japan, with fears for the safety of nearby nuclear power stations.

The Japan Meteorological Agency have said that this new quake was actually an aftershock from the previous one, and have warned that further aftershocks could follow. The 2011 quake was catastrophic in it's destruction, killing 15,891 people, with a further 2,584 missing. It destroyed countless homes and ruined people's livelihoods. The fear that these quakes will cause a huge problem in the nuclear power sector is very real. About 30% of all Japan's power comes from nuclear power stations, many of which are located on the coast where the earthquakes tend to strike.

ATF: Gun Purchases Barred Even for 'Legalized' Marijuana Use

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is clarifying language on background check form 4473 to let would-be gun buyers know that even "legalized" marijuana use bars them from purchasing a firearm.

The clarification comes in light of "the conflict between Colorado law and federal law," which results from the dichotomy of marijuana being legal at the state level but federally unlawful.

Cheerios, Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Doritos among products found to contain GM crops WEEDKILLER that has possible link to cancer

Popular cereal and snack brands in the US were reportedly found to contain "alarming levels" of glyphosate - a widely used weedkiller used on GM crops.

These best-sellers were reportedly found to contain higher than average traces of glyphosate - a widely used weedkiller used on commercially genetically modified (GM) crops. The results were uncovered by campaigning groups Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project on Monday.

State judge fines food group $18M in 2013 GMO ballot fight

SEATTLE - A Thurston County judge has penalized a food industry group $18 million for concealing the true source of contributions to oppose a 2013 food labeling initiative.

Judge Anne Hirsch on Wednesday found the Grocery Manufacturers Association "intentionally violated" state campaign finance disclosure laws as it raised and spent money to defeat Initiative 522. That failed ballot measure would have required labeling of genetically modified foods.

Dangerously 'D-ficient': Low vitamin D raises your risk of dementia

The "D" in vitamin D doesn't stand for dementia. Or does it? We know that many older adults don't get enough vitamin D, and that's a problem. It can leave your bones brittle and more easily broken if you slip and fall.

What we didn't know, until now, is that a lack of vitamin D may be every bit as bad for your brain as it is for your body. According to a spate of recent studies, people age 60 and older who have low levels of vitamin D are significantly more apt to suffer cognitive decline.
