2015 and 2016 were the two hottest years ever recorded; we should not be surprised therefore to find our oceans to be showing signs of stress as the delicate balanced eco system is also being stretched to its limit.
A deadly patch of warm water along the American West coast called the ‘Pacific blob’, stretching all the way from California up to the Gulf of Alaska, Has killed thousands of California sea lions in 2015. Many starved as they struggled to find food in an unusually warm eastern Pacific. Strange exotic tropical fish have been reported off the coast of Alaska. In the winter of 2015 blue-footed diving seabirds called Cassin’s auklets, have been washing up dead by the thousands on beaches from San Francisco to Alaska, it is thought more than 250,000 died from lack of food. An unprecedented die off which began in 2011 along the West coast of North America when billions of sea urchins and sea stars died suddenly in what was ‘one of the most unusual and dramatic die-offs marine biologists have ever recorded.’
The Culprit: Warm Water?
Bill Sydeman, a senior scientist at California’s Farallon Institute, said he believes the most likely scenario is that the deaths are related to a massive blob of warm water that heated the North Pacific last year and contributed to California’s drought and to 2016 being the hottest year on record.
That water was hotter and stayed warm longer than at any time since record-keeping began. It stretched across the Gulf of Alaska, where a high-pressure system blocked storms, preventing the water from churning to the surface and mixing with air. More warm water eventually moved inward along the coast as far south as California, altering how favorable the environment was for the zooplankton that many fish and birds, including Cassin’s auklets, feed on.
Last year tens of thousands of common murres were the victims, an abundant North Pacific seabird, starved and washed ashore on beaches from California to Alaska, researchers have pinned the cause to unusually warm ocean temperatures that affected the tiny fish they eat.
A year after tens of thousands of the common murres died, John Piatt, a research wildlife biologist for the U.S. Geological Survey claims the deaths of the common murres is an indicator of the regions’ health.
Elevated temperatures in seawater affected wildlife in a pair of major marine ecosystems along the West Coast and Canada, said
“If tens of thousands of them are dying, it’s because there’s no fish out there, anywhere, over a very large area,” Piatt said.
It is thought 500,000 of the common murres, who look like thin penguins, died last year all though this could be just a conservative guess because only a fraction of the dead birds likely reached the shore.
According to a new report released by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, the West will become the new ‘third world’. PwC, the 5th largest privately owned company in the United States, warns that the economies of country’s such as Indonesia, Mexico, Egypt and Pakistan are on pace to overtake the economies of Italy and Canada in the future while ‘1st world’ nations such as the United States are forecast to fall not into the group of ‘2nd world nations’, but join 3rd world nations such as Venezuela, North Korea and the other ‘developing’ countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
And with President Donald Trump in office promising to ‘make America great again’ might make such a forecast seem to be nothing more than more ‘fake news’, the website Deagel.com STILL shows a 2025 forecast for America that boggles our minds and should cause questions to be asked. Why does Deagel still show a major fall coming for America?
As we’ve previously reported numerous times on ANP, according to Deagel.com, a website which uses as their sources the various US government agencies seen screenshot below, they are still forecasting a population drop for the United States of 260 million people between now and 2025. You can check out their website’s United States of America page right here – it also shows a drop in gross domestic product from $18 trillion to only $949 billion in 2025 with GDP per capita dropping from $55,855 in 2015 to only $15,517 in 2025. What does Deagel know that the American people don’t know?
If not for a massive ‘die-off’, how else could the population of the US go from 321 million people to only 61 million people in less than 10 years? Did Deagel know several years ago that President Donald Trump would be elected and is the result of 260 million fewer people forecast to be living in the US in 2025 based upon several years of an unprecedented illegal immigration purge by Trump?
When alternative news first brought these charts to the attention of the world and Deagel went viral, they decided to publish their own reason for forecasting a massive drop in population for 2025 and such a major economic dropoff for the US. Not surprisingly, their explanation sounded much like PricewaterhouseCoopers, the United States is on its way to becoming a 3rd world nation.
While we clearly still have a ways to go to reach the depths of pain and suffering being experienced this very moment by the people living in Venezuela where they are hunting flamingos and anteaters to stave off hunger, we see in recent stories that things continue to deteriorate even here in America. As Susan Duclos reported on ANP back on February 8th, worldwide food shortages are now being felt, including here in the US. As Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog recently warned, things are happening now in the financial world that don’t usually happen unless ‘trouble is coming’.
We’ve also warned that the forces of hell have seemingly been unleashed against the presidency of Donald Trump. As Mac Slavo recently reported over at SHTFPlan, ‘operation chaos’ has seen chaos weaponized and seen the country thrown into a tailspin during Trump’s first few weeks in office. Warning that this is likely only the beginning of something very raw and ugly bubbling to the surface, we see the status quo being dissolved with a very real ‘coup de tat’ by the 9th Circuit Court at least temporarily taking away President Trump’s control over who can come into America.
Are we now being ‘set up for the fall?’ As Slavo also recently warned over at SHTFPlan in a story that was picked up by the Drudge Report, they continue to get ready for war and chaos in US streets – that hasn’t gone away since Trump has come into office. Why would the Army prep for urban warfare in megacities? Do they know something that we don’t know and might what they know be tied to what Deagel is forecasting for America? From Slavo:
There will be war in the streets of America. Things have been engineered that way.
The scenarios are many, the issues are complex. The current anger from the left, who are violently protesting against President Trump, is just one aspect of it.
But the Pentagon and the U.S. national security structure is increasingly looking towards the shifting demographics around the globe – people have moved from rural areas, and shifted into cities. Where ever conflict stirs, there will be a need for military and SWAT response to the call. Entire cities will be locked down; door to door sweeps will often have violent ends.
Baghdad could be brought home to the streets of America, and the military already knows it.
In the first video below we get to hear Dave with the X22Report sharing with us political and economic news from around the world with a focus on the recent study by PricewaterhouseCoopers. As Dave tells us, every day we’re getting more and more signs that, despite President Donald Trump, they’re preparing to ‘bring down America’.
In the 2nd video, the Daily Sheeple warns us all about the massive surveillance state that has been built up all around us over the past several decades, telling us how we can know that now more than ever we’re living in an ‘Orwellian police state’ that we’re hopeful will be dismantled in the coming years, rather than allowed to become ‘a boot stomping upon a human face, forever’. And please remember, being against an ‘Orwellian police state’ for America has nothing to do with ‘being against the police’, whom we support 100%. Not even the law enforcement officers who we know are in support of a ‘dictatorial police state’ for America.
Will President Trump’s decision to focus the homeland security apparatus of the United States upon ‘radical Islam’ and the terror that it brings with it to the West finally take the focus of ‘big brother’ off of American patriots, Christians, supporters of the US Constitution and 2nd Amendment and overall, 72 types of Americans? Knowing that the globalists who have been pushing the Orwellian agenda are still ‘lurking in the dark’ should tell us all we need to know.
Below videos we read Deagel’s explanation for why they believe America is headed for danger.
We have decided to publish Deagel’s response to all of the questions as to why they’re showing such a ‘collapse of America’ below as it sums up the ‘future America’ that many of us expected prior to Trump’s miraculous election. Will President Donald Trump be able to stave off America being turned into a 3rd world nation? Check out Deagel’s 2014 response as to why they’re projecting so many fewer people living in America in 2025 than are living here right now and you’ll see they, too, foresaw dark economic times ahead for America.:
There have been many questions about the countries forecast specially the one focusing on the United States of America (USA). They won’t be answered one by one but below you can find some explanation, thoughts and reflections. We are going to keep this as short as possible.
The majority of the economic and demographic data used in the making of the forecasts is widely available by institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, USG, etc. You can see the most relevant data at every single country’s page. There is a tiny part of data coming from a variety of shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others. But all these sources are from the internet and are of public domain for at least a minority. For example, several years ago Dagong, the Chinese ratings agency, published a report analyzing the physical economy of the States comparing it with those of China, Germany and Japan. The conclusion was that the US GDP was something between $5 to $10 trillion instead of $15 trillion as officially reported by the USG. We assume that the official data, especially economic, released by governments is fake, cooked or distorted in some degree. Historically it is well known that the former Soviet Union was making up fake statistics years before its collapse. Western as well as other countries are making up their numbers today to conceal their real state of affairs. We are sure that many people out there can find government statistics in their own countries that by their own personal experience are hard to believe or are so optimistic that may belong to a different country.
The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy.
Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe – suffering a similar illness – won’t be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union’s population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say “Twice the pride, double the fall”? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union’s one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.
Sorry to disappoint many of you with our forecast. It is getting worse and worse every year since the beginning of the pre-crisis in 2007. It is already said that this website is non-profit, built on spare time and we provide our information and services AS IS without further explanations and/or guarantees. We are not linked to any government in any way, shape or form. We are not a death or satanic cult or arms dealers as some BS is floating around the internet on this topic. Take into account that the forecast is nothing more than a model whether flawed or correct. It is not God’s word or a magic device that allows to foresee the future.

Extraordinary readings pile pressure on operator Tepco in its efforts to decommission nuclear power station
Radiation levels inside a damaged reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station are at their highest since the plant suffered a triple meltdown almost six years ago.
The facility’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said atmospheric readings as high as 530 sieverts an hour had been recorded inside the containment vessel of reactor No 2, one of three reactors that experienced a meltdown when the plant was crippled by a huge tsunami that struck the north-east coast of Japan in March 2011.
The extraordinary radiation readings highlight the scale of the task confronting thousands of workers, as pressure builds on Tepco to begin decommissioning the plant – a process that is expected to take about four decades.
The recent reading, described by some experts as “unimaginable”, is far higher than the previous record of 73 sieverts an hour in that part of the reactor.
A single dose of one sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.
Tepco also said image analysis had revealed a hole in metal grating beneath the same reactor’s pressure vessel. The one-metre-wide hole was probably created by nuclear fuel that melted and then penetrated the vessel after the tsunami knocked out Fukushima Daiichi’s back-up cooling system.
“It may have been caused by nuclear fuel that would have melted and made a hole in the vessel, but it is only a hypothesis at this stage,” Tepco’s spokesman Tatsuhiro Yamagishi told AFP.
“We believe the captured images offer very useful information, but we still need to investigate given that it is very difficult to assume the actual condition inside.”
The presence of dangerously high radiation will complicate efforts to safely dismantle the plant.
A remote-controlled robot that Tepco intends to send into the No 2 reactor’s containment vessel is designed to withstand exposure to a total of 1,000 sieverts, meaning it would survive for less than two hours before malfunctioning.
The firm said radiation was not leaking outside the reactor, adding that the robot would still prove useful since it would move from one spot to the other and encounter radiation of varying levels.
Tepco and its network of partner companies at Fukushima Daiichi have yet to identify the location and condition of melted fuel in the three most seriously damaged reactors. Removing it safely represents a challenge unprecedented in the history of nuclear power.
Quantities of melted fuel are believed to have accumulated at the bottom of the damaged reactors’ containment vessels, but dangerously high radiation has prevented engineers from accurately gauging the state of the fuel deposits.
Earlier this week, the utility released images of dark lumps found beneath reactor No 2 that it believes could be melted uranium fuel rods – the first such discovery since the disaster.
In December, the government said the estimated cost of decommissioning the plant and decontaminating the surrounding area, as well as paying compensation and storing radioactive waste, had risen to 21.5tn yen (£150bn), nearly double an estimate released in 2013.
Scientists at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan have declared a state of emergency as one of the reactors is on the verge of falling into the ocean.
Lethal levels of radiation have been detected around the site which scientists say stems from a hole caused by melted nuclear fuel.
Radiation levels of up to 530 Sieverts per hour were detected inside an inactive Reactor 2 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex damaged during the 2011 earthquake and tsunami catastrophe, Japanese media reported on Thursday citing the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).
A dose of about 8 Sieverts is considered incurable and fatal.
A hole of no less than one square meter in size has also been discovered beneath the reactor’s pressure vessel, TEPCO said. According to researchers, the apparent opening in the metal grating of one of three reactors that had melted down in 2011, is believed to be have been caused by melted nuclear fuel that fell through the vessel.
The iron scaffolding has a melting point of 1500 degrees, TEPCO said, explaining that there is a possibility the fuel debris has fallen onto it and burnt the hole. Such fuel debris have been discovered on equipment at the bottom of the pressure vessel just above the hole, it added.
The latest findings were released after a recent camera probe inside the reactor, TEPCO said. Using a remote-controlled camera fitted on a long pipe, scientists managed to get images of hard-to-reach places where residual nuclear material remained. The substance there is so toxic that even specially-made robots designed to probe the underwater depths beneath the power plant have previously crumbled and shut down.
However, TEPCO still plans to launch further more detailed assessments at the damaged nuclear facility with the help of self-propelled robots.
Earlier this week, hopes for a more efficient cleanup at Fukushima were high, as the plant operator announced a portion of nuclear fuel debris responsible for a lot of the lingering contamination from six years ago may have finally been found.
Cancers in Japan and the West Coast of the United States has skyrocketed since the Fukushima disaster, particularly thyroid based cancers and among children. Mushrooms (which soak up radiation like a sponge), milk (that deadly strontium 90 clings to like glue), and cheese have found to have been contaminated. To what degree is hard to tell because Obama shut off the testing of food after the disaster at the behest of the bottom line. Obama also allowed the amount of radiation in food to reach levels that mimic the Mad Max movie and are so high that no other nation allows anything even close. That is why it is ok to sell tuna and sushi with tumors on it for food consumption. Absolutely every single tuna caught in the Pacific Ocean was found to have been irradiated, and since even one spec too small to see of such radionuclides can kill, is any amount safe?
Now that we have a sane president in the White House who wants to cut subsidies for business’ that do not produce, life may be good for those that know the need to see nuclear power erased from practice and shuttered forever. Subsidies exist because nuke plants cost way too much to even insure, being the sitting bombs that they are. The headlines have said that Trump is trying to save nuclear power by making it safe, but since that is not possible and the only reason that they exist is because government funds them, they may be on their last legs. Trump has happily taken down the ridiculous “climate change” jetsom from the White House (dot gov) website and as the nation moves to clean coal and safer oil drilling methods, the needs for risky nuclear power should dwindle, with any luck. Imagine if Trump had to do what Obama should have and, while not forcing an evacuation, did the right thing and warned those on Americas West Coast that it is deadly to remain. If a reactor unitl falls in Japan, which is likely, that is what he will be facing. Alex Jones and Busby have called it a possible life extinction event.
Even if the global warming crowd was correct, there are doctors such as Helen Caldicott who is nothing short of a raging leftist opposed to nuclear. She thinks that missiles are shaped like men’s members and that it is why men like warfare, she thinks that man is warming the planet, and she is all but unlistenable when it comes to whining about Donald Trump. What would such a Green Party card carrying member have to say about how nuclear power plants “save” the environment? Well this doctor who is no friend of patriotism or nationalism (therefore we are not quoting someone who is biased to the right….she openly hates the right) says in a book called “Nuclear is Not The Answer” that
…AND THAT IT LEADS TO GLOBAL WARMING! That is right lefties, if your planet is warming, nuke plants make it worse.
