While in the animal kingdom, the honey badger has earned its 'nothing can stop the honey badger' reputation for being absolutely fearless in its unstoppable ferocity, nothing is quite as fierce as 'lava on the prowl' as we've been witnessing recently coming to us from the 'Big Island' of Hawaii after the eruption of the Kilauea volcano May 5th, the day after a 6.9 earthquake shook the entire island.
In this new story over at the Daily Mail we see some incredible images and video footage of the walls and fountains of lava mowing down houses, cars, trees, telephone poles, fences and everything else in its destructive path, reminding us just how little we are in the overall scheme of things in comparison to the monstrous power of our increasingly 'stirred up' planet Earth.
We've embedded several photographs and videos of that lava flow within this ANP story as a look and astonishing reminder to us all that nothing can stop our planet Earth from growing and changing and also look at more signs of potentail trouble ahead with a 4.5 magnitude 'wake up call' shaking the Los Angeles region Tuesday morning while nearly half-a-world-away, more than 270 quakes have rocked the Canary Islands within the last 10 days, with locals and experts warning the Mount Teide volcano on Tenerife could erupt which they warn "would be cataclysmic".
As we hear in the 3rd video below, an absolutely astonishing number of weather and 'Earth change' events are now happening all across the planet and our videographer spends nearly 45 minutes documenting them all.
Even among evacuees, the attitude toward Kilauea’s latest outbursts has seemed to be a blend of sadness, acceptance and, for some, deference to Mother Nature. In interviews and in online forums, several residents have invoked Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess said to live inside Kilauea, when asked about the fate of their homes.
“What can you do? You have no control over it,” Leilani Estates resident Steve Clapper told the AP on Monday morning at an evacuation shelter. “Pele’s the boss, you know.”
“The way I kind of look at it is, the land doesn’t really belong to us. It belongs to Pele,” Jordan Sonner, a Big Island Realtor who evacuated her home near Leilani Estates, told The Post on Saturday. “We get to live on it while we can, and if she wants it back, she’ll take it. I have good insurance.”
“During a volcanic eruption, we are reminded that our planet is an ever-changing environment whose basic processes are beyond human control,” the park’s website states. “As much as we have altered the face of the Earth to suit our needs, we can only stand in awe before the power of an eruption.”
We should also remember that volcanic eruptions release not only incredible ash clouds into the skies but gases such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, hydrochloric acid and carbon monoxide.
As we've reported on ANP several times, all the way back in the year of 1816, our planet had what has since been known as the 'year without a summer' after the eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia the previous year sent a massive ash cloud all across the northern hemisphere, cooling off much of the planet and leading to death and disaster.
And while for the past decade +, globalists speak of 'global warming', 2018 has brought in a year without much of a spring for many in the 'bread basket of America' with winter storms stretching well into April, well past the normal planting time for some crops.
Will food shortages result in America this summer and fall after such a brutal winter that lasted well into what is normally spring? We find the fact that food prices are expected to skyrocket according to 'industry insiders' after continuing their steady climb is likely not 'just a coincidence'. From Cooking Light and their story titled "Grocery Prices Are About to Skyrocket, Say Industry Insiders":
According to financial analysts, the U.S. economy is facing one of the worst periods of inflation since the recession—and it's coming to grocery stores, too. Your weekly basket of staples could be getting a lot more expensive, even if you choose to shop at discount grocery stores like Aldi or Lidl.
A combination of rising crop costs, resources, and freight shipping is going to affect all retailers as brands are forced to pass these costs onto consumers.
In an opinion piece for Bloomberg, columnist Conor Sen outlines how grocery stores across the nation are going to have to increase prices on groceries in order to combat rising costs elsewhere. And one of the first places shoppers may notice the increase is on private-label brands.
Sen writes that TreeHouse Foods Inc., a food manufacturer responsible for $6 billion a year in revenue making products for retailers' private labels that thrifty shoppers turn to in order to save money, will "pass on its rising freight and commodity costs" to shoppers by simply raising prices on the products on shelves.
As we reported on ANP back on October 18th of 2017 and is mentioned within the 2nd video below, should a worst-case scenario volcanic eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma occur, waves traveling at speeds of up to 650 miles per hour at heights of between 130 and 160 feet could be unleashed across the entire Atlantic Ocean basin, striking such far away points as the US, the UK, Spain, France and large coastal parts of both South America and Africa within 2 to 8 hours.
While experts say that the likelihood of such a catastrophic eruption happening within our lifetimes is low, they nevertheless warn that should such an event occur, we'd have very little time to prepare for what could be TEOTWAWKI.
Possibly leading to 12 miles or more of the US coastline completely inundated, those who think it impossible simply need to look back at earth changes throughout history to see that continents have indeed been swallowed by the ocean in their entirety.
And while we certainly won't be holding our breaths just waiting for disaster to occur, it certainly feels that we're living in 'Biblical times' where anything and everything is possible, an absolutely amazing and humbling time to be alive.
