Dry/Ice: Global Warming Revealed
by Drunvalo Melchizedek
What you are about to read is going to change your world forever, this I
can promise you. I actually apologize that I have to be the one who brings
this unsettling news, but you must know if you wish to survive, for what
is coming will either be DRY and heat or ICE and freezing.
Global warming has been in the news for over 40 years, and by this time we
have become complacent. Our scientists have come to the agreement that
global warming will eventually cause major changes and problems in the
world, but in their way of thinking it will be 50 to 100 years before we
will actually have to deal with the effects.
The general idea is that global warming will be slow and the world will
find time to discover the solutions to the problems.
New powerful evidence strongly suggests that this scenario is simply
wrong, and we had better prepare for another more abrupt possibility.
One of the first hints that something may be different than what we are
being told (especially here in the US) was published in Discover magazine
in September 2002 with the cover announcing Global Warming Surprise, A
New Ice Age, Oceanographers have discovered a huge river of fresh water
in the Atlantic formed by melting polar ice. They warn it could soon bury
the Gulf Stream, plunging North America and Europe into frigid winters.
That was almost two years ago, and no one listened. Life goes on oblivious
to the incredible danger approaching.
ENGLAND & SIR DAVID KING
Then in January 2004 enter Sir David King. Sir King is the Prime Minister
of England's chief scientist. Sir King went to Mr. Blair and told him of
the impending worldwide disaster and that they needed to tell the world of
what was about to happen.
Tony Blair told Sir David King to be quiet and not speak. But Sir King
felt that this was simply too important for him to say nothing, so in
January of this year he deliberately went around Mr. Blair and went
straight to the American journal Science where he published his
information and concern.
Sir King said in this article, In my view, climate change is the most
severe problem we are facing today, more serious even than the threat of
England placed a gag order on Sir David King, and now he is not even
allowed to discuss this subject publicly without threat of detention.
AMERICA & THE PENTAGON
A month later in February 2004, the Pentagon became involved, which has
stirred the world to action.
The Pentagon has been studying Global Warming for many years because of
its possible national security problems associated with the kind of
changes that could present themselves to the world through Global Warming.
A special study was conducted through one of the Pentagon's departments,
the Office of Net Assessment, which is directed by Andrew W. Marshall, 83,
who has the responsibility of identifying long-term threats to the United
Mr. Marshall went to a US based think-tank called Global Business Network
to compile the possibilities of Global Warming on US national security. A
study was completed in October of 2003 and released to the Pentagon, which
was looking at this problem from the point of view of what is the worst
that could happen. It was named An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its
Implications for United States National Security. The summary went far
beyond what most Pentagon experts had expected.
Realizing the incredible possibilities of this study, Mr. Marshall made a
decision to publicly report this and other information to the American
people. And probably because of President Bushs stance on Global Warming,
which is beyond negative, he also decided to go around the president, and
he published his information and concern in Fortune magazine on February
In his article in Fortune, Mr. Marshall explains how the melting North and
South poles and glaciers from around the world are composed of fresh water
and within this fact is the basis of the impending global weather
The Gulf Stream or scientifically referred to as North Atlantic
thermohaline conveyor is a stream of warm water that comes from south of
the equator and flows over the surface of the ocean toward the north where
this warm water keeps Northern America and Northern and Western Europe
from freezing. It also holds most of the worlds weather patterns in the
way we are used to.
Then as this Gulf Stream cools down, it drops to the bottom of the ocean
and returns as a river in the ocean to the south where it warms up again
and rises to the surface and then returns to the north one more time in a
continuous convection current. It is a huge three dimensional figure
The motor that keep this warm water flowing is found in the north where
the Gulf Stream drops to the bottom of the ocean. It is the salt density
of the ocean that causes this river to drop and pulls the warm water up
from the south.
Now that the poles are melting and fresh water is flowing into the
Atlantic Ocean and the salt density is decreasing, the Gulf Stream does
not drop quiet as far, which results in a slowing down of this Stream. The
Gulf Stream has been dramatically slowing down now for at least ten years.
As the Gulf Stream slows down, the warmth is not brought to the North
Atlantic region, and the weather patterns begin to change for they are
dependent on this warmth to keep a balance.
THE MELTING POLES
The Bush Administration
During the Bush administration when discussions have been held on the
melting of the North & South Poles, this government and US corporate
entities alike have stated that the world's scientists are all wrong on
their conclusions that say there is great danger, and have led the
American public to believe there is no real problem at all.
However, George W. Bush was the focus of attack by Sir David King when he
wrote his article in Science, for the world's greatest scientific minds,
at least one thousand seven hundred of them with the Union of Concerned
Scientists say that Mr. Bush is ill-informed at the least.
Since the US government is 25% of the CO2 pollution in the world that is
creating Global Warming, a discussion of Mr. Bush's Global Warming
policies is paramount. Perhaps one of the best articles that summaries Mr.
Bush's position will be found in the ROLLING STONES magazine article of
May 19, 2004 by Tim Dickinson. What follows in italics is a portion of
Given the imminent threat from global warming, even the Bush
administration might be expected to launch a War on Heat. After all, as a
candidate in 2000, George W. Bush vowed to "establish mandatory reduction
targets" for carbon-dioxide emissions, saying he would make the issue a
Once Bush became president, however, reducing carbon emissions was the
first promise he broke -- and his record has been all downhill from there.
Only two months after taking office, the administration withdrew from the
Kyoto Protocol, the global treaty that the United States signed in 1997 to
set strict limits on greenhouse emissions. Instead, Bush instituted a
voluntary emissions plan that has been an abject failure: So far, only
fourteen companies have pledged to curb their CO2 output.
The president also folded the interagency group that monitors climate
change into the Commerce Department -- led by Secretary Don Evans, a
former oil and gas executive. And he called for additional climate
research that would delay any meaningful regulation for at least another
decade. "We do not know how much our climate could or will change in the
future," Bush declared in a speech in the Rose Garden. Such statements
spurred an open letter signed by twenty Nobel laureates, who blasted the
administration for having "consistently sought to undermine" public
understanding of man's role in global warming. (Bush's science adviser
refused to be interviewed for this article.)
Then the censorship began. In September 2002, the Environmental Protection
Agency released an air-quality report that - for the first time since 1996
- included no mention of global warming. Seven months later, the White
House made wholesale revisions to the climate-change chapter of the EPA's
"Report on the Environment," playing down human influence, deleting
references to the health impacts of global warming and inserting climate
data funded in part by the American Petroleum Institute. The EPA withdrew
the altered chapter, acknowledging in an internal memo that it "no longer
accurately represents scientific consensus on climate change."
Even some Republicans have been astounded at Bush's meddling in EPA
affairs. "What seems constantly evident with George W. Bush is that EPA is
expected to take its marching orders from the White House on regulatory
matters," says Russell Train, who headed the agency under Richard Nixon
and Gerald Ford. "During my time, I never had that happen. Never." Train,
a recipient of a Presidential Medal of Freedom from the elder Bush, calls
the administration's approach to global warming "totally wrong" and
Bush can rely on key Republicans in Congress to block any efforts to curb
pollution and stave off disaster. Sen. James Inhofe, chairman of the
Environment and Public Works Committee, dismisses global warming as a
"hoax." In a speech last July, Inhofe compared the IPCC to the Soviets and
extolled the virtues of what he called a "CO2-enhanced" world. "It is my
fervent hope," he concluded, "that Congress will reject the prophets of
doom who peddle propaganda masquerading as science in the name of saving
the planet from catastrophic disaster."
From another point of view in the same article we hear: They (the Bush
Administration) do not have a credible plan, either domestically or
internationally, for addressing the problem (Global Warming), says Michael
Oppenheimer, a climatologist at Princeton University. They (the Bush
Administration) argue that they don't want to address global warming, he
says, because the science is shaky. And that approach is indefensible,
because the science isn't shaky.
The North Pole Melting
Let's look at the facts. Two summers ago the North Pole completely melted
for the first time in history that we know of. Both private and military
ships floated directly over the actual North Pole as it was completely
water. This area has never been seen to be less then ten feet of solid
Greenpeace a few years ago announced that the North Pole's winter to
summer snow pack had receded by around three hundred miles, but no one
And today, as I am writing this article, we are witnessing the Alaska fire
that has consumed over one million acres of forest. This fire is burning
in an area that is always wet with rain or snow until now. And this fire,
as you will understand in this article is directly related to the melting
of the poles and the Gulf Stream.
But finally the Pentagon, thanks to Andrew Marshall, has told the truth in
the Fortune magazine on February 9th. The Pentagon shows a satellite photo
of the North Pole in 1970 and then in 2003, which reveals that, according
to the Pentagon, 40% of the North Pole has melted in just 33 years. And it
is melting faster and faster now. The Pentagon has now proven that all
these government statements that the poles are not melting were simply a
lie. And it is a lie more damaging than anything that Bushs Iraq war
could possibly throw at the United States.
The South Pole Melting
In the South Pole a couple of years ago Larsen A ledge broke off, which
surprised many scientists. At that time we were told by the scientific
personnel that were studying this event that it was no big deal since this
ice ledge had only been connected to the South Pole for about the last ten
And these same scientists also added that Larsen B ledge that was behind
Larsen A ledge would never melt as it has been there for many ice ages.
Yet last year, Larsen's B ledge broke off and went to sea. These same
scientists said that it would take six months to melt because of its
immense size, but again they were wrong. It melted in a mere 35 days, and
more significant, it rose the entire world's oceans by almost an inch.
Now with Larsen's B ledge gone, an incredibly enormous ice shelf called
Ross's Shelf is exposed and the only thing holding Ross's Shelf from
sliding into the ocean was Larsen's B ledge. According to my sources,
Ross's Shelf is now cracking.
If Ross's Shelf were to slide into the ocean, it has been estimated that
it would raise the entire world's oceans by sixteen to twenty feet. And
that, my friends, would change the world, as almost every coastal city in
the world and many islands along with the county of Holland would be
underwater. Perhaps it will take an event like this to wake up the world
to become serious about Global Warming.
THE ANCIENT PAST
The Pentagon in their study of what is now happening in the North Atlantic
ocean, has looked into the past to see when this slowing down or stoppage
of the Gulf Stream has happened before and what actually took place at
those time in the world's weather patterns.
In actual fact, this North Atlantic ocean slowing or stoppage has happen
hundreds of times before in the past going back hundred of millions years,
but in our recent past of the last 10,000 years, it has only happened
The most recent time was in the year 1300 AD, and at that time it simply
slowed down. It never actually stopped. And why it slowed down, scientists
are at the moment theorizing. They dont really know why.
It resulted in abrupt global climatic weather changes that never returned
to normal for 550 years. This period of time in our history has been named
the Little Ice Age because of the havoc it caused to our weather and the
dramatic cooling that resulted.
What the Pentagon has realized is that at that time of the Little Ice
Age, the East Coast of America became extremely cold, while the middle
and Western areas of the United States became so dry that the Midwest
became a dust bowl and the mountain forests burned to the ground, just as
they are doing right now today, for you see, this slowing down of the Gulf
Stream has been going on today for about ten years. It also affected
Europe dramatically as their weather changed completely during the Little
A study of the Anasazi Indians of the 14th century is enlightening. In
Chaco Canyon in New Mexico the Anasazi completely disappeared, and where
they went no one is sure. But one of the reasons that has emerged from the
study of the New Mexico environment for their leaving the area is that
soon after the turn of the 14th century, Chaco Canyon went into a drought
where they didn't receive a drop of rain for 47 years! 47 years of drought
will definitely cause anyone to move. No water, no life.
The archeologists who presented this study didn't know why the drought
happened, but it is clear why it happened with the information of the Gulf
Stream slowing down just before this period. And this is exactly what the
Pentagon believes is about to happen here in America, Canada and Europe as
We may think that this current drought in the US West is going to stop
soon, but the earth's history with the Gulf Stream suggests strongly that
it will continue for about another 40 years before it begin to regain
8200 Years Ago
However, the Pentagon report believes that the Gulf Stream, from
everything they know, is not just going to slow down, but rather it is
going to stop. And the last time this happened was 8200 years ago.
And according to the Pentagon, from their research, this is a much more
dramatic scenario. When the Gulf Stream stopped 8200 years ago, it soon
left Northern Europe under a half mile of ice, and New York and England
quickly endured weather similar to Siberia.
Further it resulted in a true Ice Age that lasted about 100 years, and
so you can see why the Pentagon is so worried. According to Andrew
Marshall, like Sir David King, he says that this Gulf Stream problem is a
greater threat to US national security (and other countries) than all of
the world's combined terrorism. Really, when you think about it, terrorism
is nothing compared to the stopping of the Gulf Stream. Its not even
Realize that without stable weather conditions, the growing of food
becomes almost impossible, and according to the Pentagon, this could
become such a huge problem for the world in the near future, that wars
will begin to form all over the world, not for oil or energy, but for food
And with whole countries having to evacuate, if this were to happen, such
as Finland, Sweden and Denmark, which will be under ice, and many other
countries for other reasons, this enormous immigration is what will cause
the most threat to national security, again according to the Pentagon
This is why Andrew Marshall and Sir David King wanted the world to know
about what was coming so that the world could begin to prepare for the
THE US SENATE
Then in March 2004 the US Senate became aware of what the Pentagon was
saying and they appropriated 60 million dollars to the study of ABRUPT
GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGES. This offers hope that soon the US Senate will
begin to tell the world of these coming climate changes.
THE UNITED NATIONS
In June 2004, ending on June 29th, a meeting was held at the United
Nations to consider what to do about Global Warming and the Gulf Stream.
154 countries participated with the result that the only thing they could
figure out what to do was to eliminate the use of oil and gasoline as soon
There are those who believe that if we continue to lower the CO2 levels,
that possibly we can slow down the problems, and, of course, we must do
everything we can. This is important for there are ocean currents other
that the North Atlantic that are in every ocean, and if they all were to
stop or slow down, Earth would all most certainly enter a true ice age.
And history has shown that if that were to happen, our civilization would
not return to a warm period again for 90,000 years.
But really, to change or increase the current of the entire Atlantic ocean
to bring it back to normal is beyond the possibilities of the human race
and all of it's technologies. It is too late, by the estimate of most of
the worlds scientists, to alter the course of what is about to happen.
All we can do now is prepare for the shock. And preparation is essential,
which is the main message of both Sir David King and Andrew Marshall.
On July 13th, 2004, NASA launched a satellite, the first of three, that's
whole purpose is to study Global Warming. Besides the study of the ozone,
another huge problem associated with Global Warming, these satellites will
monitor the temperature and salt density of the oceans. Perhaps we will at
least be able to monitor the rapid changes and predict what will happen
SOME UNUSUAL WEATHER CHANGES THAT HAVE HAPPENED
SINCE THE GULF STREAM SLOWED DOWN
In March 2004 the world saw a major hurricane hit the coast of Brazil.
This is the first time in all recorded history that a hurricane has struck
land in South America.
In May 2004, the United States witnessed 562 tornadoes in a single month,
breaking all records. A few of these tornadoes were recorded in Seattle,
Washington. Never has a tornado been seen in Seattle.
Eastern Canada in the winter of 2003/2004 just had one of the coldest
winters on record.
For several years forest fires have been burning around the world. The
list would be extensive. The north part of Australia is on fire. Alaska,
as we have already mentioned, is burning. Unprecedented!
The entire Western United States is under fire, jumping from region to
region, with the US government announcing that this is the worse drought
in 500 years. Really, the fires are worldwide.
France and Europe had a heat wave in 2003 that caused 15,000 people to die
in France and 30,000 through-out Europe simply from the intense heat
caused by Global Warming and the Gulf Stream.
Argentina this month July 2004, had the greatest storm they have ever seen
in their history.
Mexico's weather is so strange and wet in some regions that mold/fungus is
forming on their crops. (And in other regions they are having a drought)
As weather patterns begin to change more and more radically, food growth
will become one of our biggest problems.
The coral reefs of the world are dying because of Global Warming, and this
is threatening most of the islands in the oceans, including those in the
Pacific. Anyone living on most islands will probably have to leave sooner
or later because of their fresh water being corrupted with salt ocean
water. Definitely they will have to leave if the oceans rise much higher.
Further, it was reported on NPR this morning, July 16, 2004, that fifty
percent of the CO2 that has been released in the atmosphere from our
technological society has ended up in our oceans and this in turn is
dropping the PH to the acidic. This in turn is actually dissolving the
coral reefs and killing them along with vast numbers of other life forms
in the oceans.
These are problems simply off the top of my head. If one were to get
serious and really research all the strange weather problems of the last
ten years (the years the Gulf Stream slowed down) one would begin to be
truly aware of the coming abrupt global climate weather changes that we
must all adapt to if humanity is to continue on Earth.
THE 40-FOOT WALL
In the Pentagon report it suggests that the United States build a 40-foot
wall around the entire country to keep out people who are immigrating and
trying to escape world weather problems. The Pentagon believes that food
and water will be the biggest problem, and since the US has the money to
buy food, they believe we will be best able to resist this particular
problem longer than most countries. People will want to come here just to
This sounds like something out of a weird movie, but in fact the US
government has already begun the construction of this wall between the US
SIDE NOTE: Speaking of movies, The Day After Tomorrow, which was recently
released is based on this information of the Gulf Stream stopping.
However, Hollywood exaggerated the results of the storms so much that most
people simply thought it was fantasy. It is not fantasy, it is really
happening, but will it happen as this movie predicts? And in this movie
you saw massive amount of Americans fleeing to Mexico to escape the
extreme cold weather.
I just spoke with a US military person about two weeks ago who is involved
in the construction of this 40-foot wall. In the discussion, with him
about the Gulf Stream, which he was unaware of, he said, Oh, now I
understand. You see, the wall is straight up and down on the Mexican side,
but it has steps and ladders on the US side to get over the wall and into
Mexico. I never could understand why the government was doing this.
THE CHANGING OF THE SHAPE OF THE GULF STREAM
In the Pentagon report they said that they believed that the stoppage of
the Gulf Stream would probably happen in three to five years from October
2003. This was their best guess, and admittedly it was only a guess and a
But what they didn't know, because it was beginning at the actual time of
their release of their report, was that the Gulf Stream was beginning to
change shape. The change of shape of the Gulf Stream is the beginning of
the breakdown and stoppage of this warm water current and the end of our
civilization as we know it.
I have this information from two sources, both of which do not wish to be
named right now, but both of them are world famous scientists.
If this is true, then all the effects and timing of the Pentagon report
have to be shifted closer to the present by three to five years.
I don't know if this is true, but in the vein of holding nothing back,
this info is placed in this article. The actual proof will follow if it
will be given to me.
FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
As I became aware of this information, I didn't know what to do or if I
should write this article. But because I believe in and love humanity, I
finally realized, like Sir David King and Andrew Marshall, that I must
speak out, for knowledge is power.
And when the time comes for us all to make life decisions, my prayer is
that we all go inside where God resides and listen to our inner Heart. If
we trust in ourselves and the presence of Divine Guidance, we will all
know exactly what to do and where to be.
May God bless us all in what is about to come.
Thoth on Global Warming Actions for actions you can take.
Antarctic Glaciers Melting Faster
September 22, 2004 | Reuters
WASHINGTON - Glaciers once held up by a floating
ice shelf off Antarctica are now sliding off into
the sea -- and they are going fast, scientists
said on Tuesday.
Two separate studies from climate researchers and
the space agency NASA show the glaciers are
flowing into Antarctica's Weddell Sea, freed by
the 2002 breakup of the Larsen B ice shelf.
Writing in the journal Geophysical Research
Letters, the researchers said their satellite
measurements suggest climate warming can lead to
rapid sea level rise.
The teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, California, the National Snow and Ice
Data Center at the University of Colorado in
Boulder, and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
in Greenbelt, Maryland, said the findings also
prove that ice shelves hold back glaciers.
Many teams of researchers are keeping a close eye
on parts of Antarctica that are steadily melting.
Large ice shelves in the Antarctic Peninsula
disintegrated in 1995 and 2002 as a result of
climate warming. But these floating ice shelves
did not affect sea level as they melted.
Glaciers, however, are another story. They rest
on land and when they slide off into the water
they instantly affect sea level.
It was not clear how the loss of the Larsen B ice
shelf would affect nearby glaciers.
But soon after its collapse, researchers saw
nearby glaciers flowing up to eight times faster
"If anyone was waiting to find out whether
Antarctica would respond quickly to climate
warming, I think the answer is yes," said
Theodore Scambos, a University of Colorado
glacier expert who worked on one study.
"We've seen 150 miles of coastline change drastically in just 15 years."
The affected area is at the far northern tip of
the Antarctic, just south of Chile and Argentina.
Temperatures there have risen by up to 4.5
degrees Fahrenheit (2.5 degrees C) in the past 60
years -- faster than almost any region in the
In the past 30 years, ice shelves in the region
have lost more than 5,200 square miles of area.
"The Larsen area can be looked at as a miniature
experiment, showing how warming can dramatically
change the ice sheets, and how fast it can
happen," Scambos said in a statement. "At every
step in the process, things have occurred more
rapidly than we expected."
But not all the melting in the Antarctic can be
seen as a "miniature experiment."
The Ross ice shelf, for example, is the main
outlet for the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, with
several large glaciers that could, if they melted
completely, raise sea levels by 16 feet.
"While the consequences of this area are small
compared to other parts of the Antarctic, it is a
harbinger of what will happen when the large ice
sheets begin to warm," Scambos said. "The much
larger ice shelves in other parts of Antarctica
could have much greater effects on the rate of
sea level rise."

Ice collapse speeds up glaciers
The collapse of an Antarctic ice shelf two years ago has accelerated the
flow of glaciers into the nearby Weddell Sea
The Larsen B ice shelf probably blocked the glaciers' progress before
its collapse in 2002, but now they are able to deposit their loads more
US researchers say the findings, which come from satellite data, provide
evidence that climate change is bringing major changes to Antarctica.
Details appear in two reports published in Geophysical Research Letters.
The researchers say this is evidence that climate change is bringing
major changes to Antarctica.
US researchers used a variety of data from satellites to track the speed
of the glaciers before and after the collapse of Larsen B.
In one study, Ted Scambos of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in
Boulder, US, analysed five images taken by the Landsat 7 satellite
between January 2000 and February 2003.
The analysis reveals that four glaciers flowing into the now collapsed
section of Larsen B increased in speed by between two and six times over
the study period.
"If anyone was waiting to find out whether Antarctica would respond
quickly to climate warming, I think the answer is yes," said Dr Scambos.
The second report, by Eric Rignot of the US space agency's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, US, showed an eightfold increase in
the speed of three glaciers, called Hektoria, Green and Evans, between
2000 and 2003.
Two others, Jorum and Crane, moved twice as quickly at the beginning of
2003 than they did in 2000 and nearly three times as fast by the end of
"These two papers clearly illustrate, for the first time, the
relationship between ice shelf collapses caused by climate warming, and
accelerated glacier flow," said Dr Rignot.
The extra ice presumably translates into higher sea level. But how much
this is raising the level of the oceans isn't known.
The authors of the published papers point out that in other places
around the continent, much larger glaciers are also held in check by ice
So further warming could lead to much larger quantities of ice falling
into the sea.
The Antarctic peninsula is one of the three fastest-warming regions on
Earth - temperatures have risen 2.5 degrees in 50 years.
But the picture generally in Antarctica is complicated, with
temperatures in the interior actually falling over the same period.
There is also some evidence that the retreat of the West Antarctic ice
sheet, on the other side of the peninsula to the Larsen B shelf, has
