"Biblical Proportions" by the mainstream media and other news outlets to describe the current Earth changes seems to be quite appropriate given the following new developments since my last post:
DEVASTATING FLOODING SWAMPS GERMANY!
Germany is suffering its worst flooding in decades. A combination of heavy rain and unusually mild temperatures for January have cause a rapid thaw of the heavy snow and ice that accumulated during December. In addition to the ground reaching saturation point, the run-off into rivers such as the Rhine, Mosel and Elbe has caused them to break their banks and flood many cities and towns. In the town of Zell in southern Germany, the only practical means of transport today was a boat. In Western Germany cities such as Cologne, Bonn and Koblenz have been deluged with water up to three metres deep in places. Koblenz was particularly badly hit as the Rhine meets the Mosel just outside the city. Experts have calculated that the river level will reach 7.7m later today, 5 metres above normal... Insurance companies worldwide are already talking of big premium rises to help counter the claims for damages expected after the floods subside around the world. Estimates for claims are now in the billions and could rise higher if the predicted further heavy rainfall is as damaging. - Rhino.

The hardest hit areas have so far been the Mallee and Wimmera where as much as 110mm has been recorded in the last 24 hours, at Canary Island. Annuello near the NSW border gained 76mm to 9am Monday, their heaviest rain in 40 years and heaviest January rain in 85 years of records. Further south, Warracknabeal’s 77mm is an eight-year high and within a millimetre of the January daily record, set in 1974. Rain has been widespread across Victoria in the last day or so but has been generally lighter in central and eastern parts.

FISH DEATHS ALARM MATHURA!
Priests at the ghats said the deaths were due to the highly toxic water and decreasing oxygen levels. ‘The cold wave has further compounded the problem as the sun’s rays are no longer proving effective,’ director of NGO Friends of Vrindavan Jagan Nath Poddar said. The Gokul barrage in Mathura has ‘become a huge storage of sewage, industrial effluents coming from upstream towns, requiring urgent clean up measures and release of fresh water to dilute the toxins,’ Poddar added. Locals said authorities were not running the sewer pumping stations effectively. ‘So many open drains discharge the city’s waste into the river but nothing has been done to stop this,’ a priest at Rameshwar ghat said. - VRINDAVAN TODAY.In the United States of America, a massive snowstorm has hit several of its southern states, leading to hundreds of flight cancellations, disruptions of air travel and hazardous driving conditions on the roads.
MASSIVE WINTER STORM HITS SOUTHERN U.S.!

Both systems are expected to merge over the Northeast this weekend, possibly producing storm conditions worse than those the region experienced recently, AccuWeather said. - NEWS HERALD.As a result of these weather conditions, food prices have increased exponentially across the globe.
FOOD PRICES SPIKE WORLDWIDE: AND THEY'RE GOING HIGHER!
The United Nations' Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) yesterday released the bad news: food prices are the highest they've ever been. And they're going to get higher. The UN releases an annual index which calculates prices based on the current markets of 55 products worldwide, including rice, milk, wheat, sugar and cheese. This index reached an all-time high of 214.7 in December of 2010, surpassing the previous high of 213.5 set in June of 2008 when a global food crisis sparked riots in countries such as Somalia and Haiti - where the populous turned to eating mud for sustenance. Several factors have led to the recent price spikes, including poor recent grain crops in Canada, Russia and the Ukraine; poor soybean crops due to drought in Argentina; and flooding affecting wheat crops in Australia. Corn prices have also risen, partially due to the increasing diverson of corn crops to biofuels rather than food. Prices could continue to rise, particularly after the recent flooding in Australia and its looming effect on sugar prices - already at record levels. - CARE 2.Meanwhile, the earthquake activity globally continues in frequency, with consistent swarms in the following regions over the last couple of days: Puerto Rico, California, Bonin Islands and the Volcano Islands in Japan, China, Chile, the Gulf of Aden, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, Bolivia, Hawaii, Iran and the Dominica Republic.

The proceedings of a scientific conference that studied the societal consequences of extraterrestrial life has just been released. Organized and hosted by the Royal Society in October 2010, the conference was titled, "The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society." The conference received wide international attention when one of the participants, Dr Mazlan Othman, was wrongly described as being on the verge of being appointed by the UN to become Earth's official liaison to extraterrestrial life. In the published proceedings, Othman sets the record straight. She believes that the UN already has a mechanism in place to deal with the detection and contact with extraterrestrial life, but work needs to be done in formalizing this by UN member states. Other conference participants endorse Othman's recommendation, and further believe that the time has come to study the societal consequences of extraterrestrial life... In their introduction to the conference proceedings, Dr Martin Dominik and Prof John C. Zarnecki endorsed studying the societal aspects of any discovery of extraterrestrial life. They stressed the importance of determining the possible motivations of extraterrestrial life and any search for such life:
"The detection and further study of extra-terrestrial life will fundamentally challenge our view of nature, including ourselves, and therefore the field of astrobiology can hardly be isolated from its societal context, including philosophical, ethical and theological perspectives. With the detection of extra-terrestrial life being technically feasible, one needs to address whether perceived societal benefits command us to search for it, or whether such an endeavor may rather turn out to be a threat to our own existence."
Dr Dominik and Prof Zarnecki went on to point out the importance of having in place the political mechanism by which humanity can responsibly deal with the future detection of extraterrestrial life:
"While scientists are obliged to assess benefits and risks that relate to their research, the political responsibility for decisions arising following the detection of extra-terrestrial life cannot and should not rest with them. Any such decision will require a broad societal dialogue and a proper political mandate. If extra-terrestrial life happens to be detected, a coordinated response that takes into account all the related sensitivities should already be in place."
Their view was supported by the current head of UN's Office for Outer Space Affairs, Dr Mazlan Othman who said:
"The continued search for extra-terrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that someday humankind will receive signals from extra-terrestrials. When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The United Nations forums are a ready-made mechanism for such coordination." - Exopolitics."...a ready-made mechanism for such coordination." Coordination, indeed.
Considering what the former NORAD officer, the late Stanley Fulham said about a group of extraterrestrials called the "Galactic Council of 8" or "The Transcendors," arriving on the Earth in 2014 to address the United Nations on the ecology of the Earth; and given the historical deception, moral ineptitude and corruption of these organizations, it certainly is not hard to see where this is heading.
Can you see it?
Finally, given the historical relationship between the Royal Society, the Papacy and the British Monarchy, the wedding date of Prince William on April 29th, seems to take on even greater significance and symbolism. Don't you think?
