‘A powerful earthquake has hit Mexico, killing five people, following two strong quakes that have already killed some 400 people and wrought massive destruction across the Latin American country.

The United States Geological Survey said a magnitude 6.2 quake struck on Saturday at a relatively shallow depth, with an epicenter near Juchitan, a tropical region of Oaxaca State.

Oaxaca had already been hard hit by a massive 8.1-magnitude tremor that struck on September 7.

Another strong earthquake hit Mexico last Tuesday.

The magnitude 7.1 quake flattened dozens of buildings and killed at least 307 people. The September 7 tremor, which was the strongest to hit the country in 85 years, killed at least 98 people.

Search operations for victims and survivors from the last two earthquakes were still ongoing when the Saturday tremor hit.’

‘Leonardo DiCaprio revealed discussions during a meeting with Donald Trump about climate change.

The actor and activist expressed his disappointment after the president didn’t appear to follow through on their discussions of potential courses of action during Yale’s Climate Conference at the school’s New Haven campus.

‘We presented him with a comprehensive plan to tackle climate change, while also simultaneously harnessing the economic potential of green jobs,’ DiCaprio recalled Wednesday.

‘We talked about how the United States has the potential to lead the world in clean-energy manufacturing and research and development,’ he noted according to the Hartford Courant.

However, DiCaprio’s efforts appear to have fallen on deaf ears.’

‘Greenpeace activists in kayaks and boats have boarded a 23,498-tonne ship in the Thames Estuary. The ship is reportedly carrying thousands of Volkswagen diesel cars bound for the UK.

A group of up to 40 activists scaled the fences at Sheerness Port, Kent, at around 8.30am local time.

Greenpeace says it will not leave the ship until the cars, meant for UK suppliers, are returned to Germany.

The protesters are hanging off the harborside brandishing a huge poster of a child wearing a gas mask with the words “Ditch Diesel.”

In a statement, Greenpeace said: “The volunteers, including many mothers, fathers and people from all walks of life, are attempting to immobilise all of the VW diesel cars by removing the keys.’

‘Over 31,000 scientists have united against the political agenda of global warming. The scientific consensus, which includes over 9,000 scientists with Ph.D.s, supports the necessity of carbon dioxide and sheds light on the agenda of global warming, which includes industrial energy rationing, central economic planning, and global taxation schemes. These scientists are now speaking out against the hoax of global warming and how global agreements to limit greenhouse gases are actually destructive to all plant and animal life on the planet.

The petition, which includes important peer-reviewed research, is backed by various scientists with a wide spectrum of expertise. The petition warns the United States about signing international treaties that only put a financial burden on the citizens of the country, steal national sovereignty, and restrict its energy production. The global warming alarmism, in other words, is pseudo-warfare designed to take down a country.’

‘Climate alarmists have finally admitted that they’ve got it wrong on global warming.

This is the inescapable conclusion of a landmark paper, published in Nature Geoscience, which finally admits that the computer models have overstated the impact of carbon dioxide on climate and that the planet is warming more slowly than predicted.

The paper – titled Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 °C – concedes that it is now almost impossible that the doomsday predictions made in the last IPCC Assessment Report of 1.5 degrees C warming above pre-industrial levels by 2022 will come true.

In order for that to happen, temperatures would have to rise by a massive 0.5 degrees C in five years.

Since global mean temperatures rarely rise by even as much as 0.25 degrees C in a decade, that would mean the planet would have to do 20 years’ worth of extreme warming in the space of the next five years.

This, the scientists admit, is next to impossible. Which means their “carbon budget” – the amount of CO2 they say is needed to increase global warming by a certain degree – is wrong. This in turn means that the computer models they’ve been using to scare the world with tales of man-made climate doom are wrong too.’

‘The entire island of Puerto Rico had its electricity knocked out and faced major flooding as Hurricane Maria pounded the island having already flattened parts of the Caribbean.

Maria, the second major hurricane to roar through the region this month, had sustained winds of up to 155mph (250kph) when it made landfall near Yabucoa on the island’s southeast.

The storm has already killed nine people across the Caribbean and hundreds of homes were destroyed on Puerto Rico as the high winds battered the island before moving off the coast.

“When we are able to go outside, we are going to find our island destroyed,” Abner Gomez, the director of the island’s emergency management agency, known by its Spanish language acronym AEMEAD, said. “It’s a system that has destroyed everything in its path.”’

‘Extreme weather events like Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida seem to be on the upswing, and some people are now asking themselves: is there more to these types of storms than meets the eye? A quick perusal of the government’s many patents and trademarks for weather modification and “geoengineering” suggests that the powers that be, indeed, have covert tools at their disposal that are capable of affecting and perhaps even controlling certain elements of the weather.

Compiled by GeoEngineeringWatch.org, the list dates back to 1891 and offers some keen insights as to what the “deep state” could be up to in terms of creating severe weather events. The earliest known patent, filed on July 16, 1891, is entitled, “Method of Producing Rain-fall.” It explains how the rapid evaporation and air chilling can be used to create condensation in the atmosphere – cloud-seeding, so to speak – thus producing more rain. A man by the name of Louis Gathmann of Chicago, Illinois, is credited as being the inventor of this technique.’

‘An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 has been detected off the coast of Japan.

The US Geological Survey said that the earthquake struck about 175 miles south east of Kamaishi, and around 200 miles east of Fukushima.

It is the third major earthquake to strike around the world in the last 24 hours – following one in Mexico that measured a magnitude of 7.1, while another 6.1 magnitude earthquake stuck New Zealand.

The depth of the earthquake, which struck at 2.37am local time, was measured at 10km. Details of any damage are yet to emerge, and no tsunami warning has yet been issued.

Only 41 people reported feeling the effects of the quake to the US Geological Survey.’
