Japan has seen record heat all summer and its 32 in tokyo right now. Taking a bunch of isolated events and conflating them to fit the narrative doesn't override the rise in global average temperature. The Japan thing is a classic example of how the whole Ice Age Theory is propped up with Cherry Picked data
let us see how this eventuates ...
Like Dave always says, don't panic or get all sad. PREPARE. You can buy a year supply of pinto beans, and I mean a lot of them, a family of four could eat them every day if you had another item to go with them... for $250 if you buy bulk. $75 for half a pound of dried rice for a YEAR. That's a year of survival food which actually tastes good. Dried beans and rice last FOREVER if you keep them from getting moist and hot. So buy them in bulk, get vacuum bags, and start packing them away. Seriously, this and some rice, salt, and a few key spices and you are set for a year. Big eaters, bigger kids, or bigger family? Double it. It's $500-650.. so what? You'll live. When combined with pinto beans you get the equivalent of animal protein. You have no excuse.
Hi David, I respect your work greatly and I fight along side you in the trenches. I thought I would
bring the latest Guardian scare story to your attention....
I found a high quality nutrient rich growing system the other day by the Health Ranger on his new YouTube alternative web site www.real.video .
Adapt2030 can you please investigate this thing about the I've melting off the coast of northern Greenland at cape Morris as I have heard that it's a strange even I don't know if it's true or not, and now it's absolutely freezing in Scotland now the max temperature today was 17 degrees
Thank you for your reports ...
The frosts are pretty intense here in subtropical NSW Australia.. usually by now they are fading. No sign of that yet... it's been a long dry and frozen winter. It's not helping the drought issue either.
The magnitudes of the records are interesting, the record heat in Japan was 0.1C over the previous record, but the record cold on Australia was multiple C's colder, and this snow in Japan is almost a month early. Also, the flooding almost everywhere, the media is not showing, is way worst that the record heat they do report on.
Good morning David, While preparing an Avocado for breakfast today I was thinking hmmm, maybe I can plant it... but that’s a big tree, to grow indoors.
Then I think Bonsai, hmmm the art of Bonsai began in China over 2000 years ago and Bonsai trees can produce fruit. Is it possible China developed Bonsai as a way to grow fruit during the last ice age?
Northern Jet stream collapse, (and the Southern stream is collapsing too) period.
And yes were all fucked.. ice age or heat age, were all in the same boat
earth dot nullschool dot net for real time temps/wind/and other shit
That has nothing to do with the temp and wind that I was pointing out for real time data. The Jet Stream collapse can be seen quite easy comparing N S poles, but hurry, as S Pole is under collapse.
Off topic, but thought you might be interested in this. Blockchain is offering an alternative to Facebook and other social media
Meanwhile, the western US are ablaze and in serious heat, the North sea and Baltic sea hit record high temperatures two weeks ago, and Japan experienced an incredible heat wave earlier this season that killed many. Your point is? This channel is very correct in pointing out that all media are very (and increasingly) biased toward record highs rather than record lows, I am with you on carrying that message out and trying to halt this ASAP. Let us not deny, however, that record highs have become much more abundant than record lows accross the globe. Dig into the data (meteorological institutes in developed countries usually make these publicly available) and see for yourself.
Seems to me the climate is still evening its self out. Many places are hotter than normal yes, but its also a lot colder in many places. I believe bigger things dictate Earths climate, the poles even it out!
Heat gradients are dangerous .... humans and mostly plants like softer gradients .... hail is typical of high speed gradient super cells . Japan has had cold, heat, high moisture .... but they are on the correct track and producing more plant food CO2 and getting away from nuclear
Something is wrong with the Japanese, their infantile mentality and inability to take things seriously will prevent them from preparing for GSM - they will be hit heavily (cold, quakes, tsunami) so I would expect substantial population decrease, especially among the elders.
I live in Japan and its interesting because most people i know are still under the impression that its getting hotter and hotter and snow is getting less and less. If you actually look at the data and history it simply isn't true though. . .they always talk about how there was much more snow in the old days and the summers weren't hot.
After doing my own checking I found that the summers have always been very hot and snow has actually increased in a lot of areas and comes earlier. Even Tokyo has had record snow and cold in recent years. Funny how the media can kind of brainwash people to eventually believing it's getting hotter and hotter everywhere.
here in the southern usa location north carolina .its cloudy and rainy for weeks .chemtrail rain ,103F to 81F on thursday ,they are forecasting for this week ....with more rain ...not our normal hot summer it is too hot and no sun .
You must be quite a good person who can make believe anything you want, even if the truth trips you over.
Jet Stream collapse is making the weather what it is right now, nothing to do with our opinions or beliefs.
Snow in August at 43.8°N Japan.
For reference Florence 43.8°N,
London 51.5°,Paris 48.9°N, Rome latitude 41.9°N, NYC 40.7° if it snowed And in the other Major population centre in August I am sure it would be different media coverage.

Five Indigenous Andean Crops You’ve Never Heard Of
July 29, 2013 Agriculture, Diet, FoodComments Offon Five Indigenous Andean Crops You’ve Never Heard Of 1,162 Views
Today, INESAD’s Ioulia Fenton gave a radio interview to Real Food Empire. The program discussed climate change, sustainability, and all things food and agriculture at INESAD, in Bolivia, and beyond. To coincide with the radio interview, today Development Roast brings its readers and Real Food Empire listeners five fascinating indigenous crops and their incredible properties.
On June 27, 2013 Giulia Maria Baldinelli wrote about the effects of rural-urban migration on agriculture in the Bolivian Altiplano, revealing that the high plateau area is a surprisingly large source of biodiversity.
The prominent Russian botanist Nikolai Ivaich Vavilov identified the region as being one of the world’s original centers of domesticated plants; the fact that the Altiplano people were one of the first in the world to cultivate edible plants is the reason why they today have such a huge number of crops.
In spite of the incredibly harsh environment—altitudes of over 4,000 meters, poor soils, drought, and freezing temperatures for several months of the year—this beautiful region is home to an enormous variety of tubers and grains. The most well known is the potato, but even this holds some surprises – whilst Western consumers may consume a handful of different varieties, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) over 400 varieties are grown in the Altiplano, and, according to the International Potato Center (CIP), more than 4,300 across the Andean region.
The region’s many lesser-known crops also play an important role, as they are resistant to the extreme climatic conditions, provide the local population with essential nutrients, and represent tasty ingredients in a large selection of both savory and sweet dishes. Today, thanks to information obtained from the International Potato Center and the American National Research Council, Development Roast brings you five indigenous Bolivian crops that you may never have heard of:
ocaOca is one of the hardiest and highest-yielding Altiplano crops, and is the second-most consumed crop in the Andes after the potato. Photo credit: botanicalgarden.ubc.ca.
1. The proliferator: Oca (also known as papa roja – ¨red potato¨, uqa in Quechua, and kawi in Aymara) is a particularly hardy plant, making it the second most-consumed crop in the Andes after the potato. It is easy to propagate and when it is grown in poor soils at high altitudes it can yield twice as much harvest as the potato. These tubers are a good source of carbohydrate, calcium, and iron, and have a nutritional value which is equal to, or better than, the potato. Some varieties are also high in protein. A few species are eaten raw, others are cooked, and, after placing the tubers in the sun for a few days to increase their glucose content, some are served as a sweet. The plants can also be used as animal feed.
Papalisa yields edible tubers which can be stored for long periods of time. Its leaves are also edible and nutritious and are used in salads.

2. The disease beater: Papalisa (¨smooth potato¨, also known as ulluco, or olluco) has brightly colored edible tubers, which otherwise look like potatoes, and are considered a delicacy. They are primarily prepared like potatoes and used in stews and soups, but are also pickled and used to make spicy sauces. The tubers can keep for up to a year and their spinach-like leaves are also nutritious. The plant is frost-resistant, moderately drought-tolerant, produces reasonable yields in poor soils, and does not suffer from many pests or diseases.
Isaño is an attractive flowering plant with edible tubers, leaves, and flowers. It has a high level of natural pest-resistance.

3. The frost fighter: Isaño (also known as mashua, mashwa, majua, cubio, añú, or papa amarga – ¨bitter potato¨) is a flowering plant, related to the garden nasturtium, grown for its edible tubers. It is favored by Andean farmers as it is easier to grow than many other crops, and is one of the most cold-resistant and highest-yielding varieties. Due to its natural pest resistance, it is the prevalent crop in regions where pesticides and fertilizers are unavailable and is also a popular choice for planting in close proximity to other crops. The tubers can be stored underground and harvested when needed. They are cooked and eaten in stews, baked or fried like vegetables, or soaked in syrups and eaten as a sweet. The young leaves and flowers can also be eaten as a vegetable.
Nutritious cañahua grains are ground into a flour which is used to make delicious cakes and breads. Photo credit: http://calendariosaboresbolivia.com.Cañahua flour is used to make delicious cakes and breads. Photo credit: http://calendariosaboresbolivia.com.
4. The draught resister: Cañahua (also known as kañiwa) is one of the most nutritious grains in the regions, with similar properties and uses to quinoa. It has a protein content of 16-19 percent, which is close to that of cooked lean beef. It grows well in poor soils at high elevations, thrives on frosts that kill other crops, and is the most drought-resistant grain found in the Andean region. The grains are toasted and ground to form a flour that is eaten with sugar, added to soups, or used to make breads and cakes.
5. The protein booster: Tarwi is a species of lupin that produces attractive flowers and edible beans that contain more protein (40 percent) than peas, soybeans, peanuts, and even some types of meat. It also contains 20 percent oil. The only drawback is its bitter flavor, which can be washed out by soaking the beans in water for a few days. The beans are then eaten in stews and soups, or as snacks like peanuts. The plant also has strong nitrogen-fixing abilities, meaning that it enriches the soil as it grows, which benefits other plants.

I live in a small town near Savannah GA USA. We usually have 99 to 101 in August. This year July and August have averaged 85 to 93... this past winter I had to heat a kitchen knife and carve my door open because we got 3 inches of snow which stayed for a week or more. It’s the longest I’ve ever seen snow stay on the ground in my life. I was born here, I’m 53. Snow, when we get it, usually is gone by the next day. It will be interesting to see what September brings! Usually September is just another month of summer for us
i dont know what to think... why has Lanikai beach in Kailua, Hawaii where i have a place shrunk so much over the past 80 years? the sea level has risen. look at the historic pictures. i not saying i disagree with your thesis however i do see conflicting evidence. thanks adapt
Conflicting "evidence": 1)Trust you own observations (you/me/nobody will get the complete truth YET, but will Soon) 2)Worldwide: within very small distances: totally different weather circumstances (that Main Media doesn't report): SO: if you report these extremes to family/friends in area's nearby/or in other countries: they'll check the most recent weather reports and Main Stream News reports (most of the time deleted, just after having "informed" the publc...): THAT WIL "PROVE" THAT YOU ARE JUST "CRAZY". THAT'S HOW THE SHOW IS RUN: "DEVIDE AND RULE": Here in Turkey I'm warning my best friends continuously, MAINLY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS/HAPPENED/ TO EXPECT HERE!: besides seismic, economical, failing crops, extreme weather and the likely/logical results, soon to come. (and Europe): THAT IS! REPORTED ON IN TURKEY: just like worldwide: being mentioned in A FLASH, SO: SOON FORGOTTEN and if I'm not sure, I check this with 2 friends, who confirm that, only after that I send my warning(s) out.
Personally I believe (at least this "Ice Age"): IS CAUSED BY THE "CABAL/ILLUMINATI/ELITES/THE BAD GUYS (AND GIRLS)": "DEVIDE AND RULE SYSTEM". Conflicting "evidence" is worldwide (many friends and family won't believe you/us/Adapt 2030, etc.): EXAMPLE: MY OWN young fam. and 2 best friends in Holland/The Netherlands: they had extreme storms/rain, a very long winter and very hot summer: EVEN officially on their MSM: SEVERE CROP LOSS/WILD FIRES/FLASH FLOODS ALL OVER EUROPE: and they still don't believe my warnings/mentioning the MANY MILLIONS of people who are left homeless (USA/CALIFORNIA/SOUTH AFRICA/ AFRICA/WESTERN PACIFIC/INDIA, ETC. ETC.!!!!!:because of (ALL, more reasons than we can imagine) THE DISASTERS AND ARE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER PLACE TO LIVE) ) THAT STARTED AND HAS JUST STARTED TO GET EVEN WORSE!!: WHO WILL WANT/ BE ABLE TO TAKE THEM IN?: THEIR COUNTRIES HAVE THEIR OWN FAILING CROPS AND DISASTERS!)

We used to cook eggs, bologna, bacon all kinds of stuff on our cars here in Indiana back in the 80's when I was a teen, this is nothing new.
In summer it gets hot and the direct rays of the sun off of any dark high luster surface can be used as a cooking surface, don't take my word for it give it a try.
It's only been in the mid to low 80's here in Central Indiana in August with nights down into the low 70's high 60's. I've lived in IN off and on my whole life, temps are not behaving normally.
People can keep believing the CO2 fairy tale or begin preparing for what's coming, shortened growth seasons in much of the world due to the GSM.
Hi from Australian ...I had frost bit fore the first time on my ..corn... bananas..pumpkin Cassava .. never seen that before ...all the grass ....and in my drip trays had 2 millimetres of frozen ice in them....-1 c 21 of August ....I think where in for a year with out a summer ... all of Antarctica is below average temperature in some places 20 c ..below....
Hi ...I got no idea what you're talking about ...I'm talking about the South Pole Antarctica ....latest release temperature ....it came out today ...... I'm into the grand solar minimum ...Global cooling ...ice age ...it's called The Eddy minimum .....if you're familiar with these terms you know what I'm talking about ....
unreal cold K Bird? like what was it using numbers, because -50 isn't unreal there, and it's winter down there at this time of year .... just saying like and check out real-time weather data from the likes of wunderground, you'll be enlightened to many things that have you blinkered right now. That mince pie that santa took a bite into was your parents doing after all, sorry!
Japan has disclosed a small portion of it's emergency rice reserves by only announcing it has 1 billion metric tons of rice. But I won't be surprised that their combined civilian and military grain and legume reserves is enough to last 20 to 30 years, more than enough time to develop other new agricultural areas and other food production facilities producing unconventional foods from micro-algae. Russia has recently exported 50 million metric tons of wheat but kept all 250 million metric tons to add to their already extremely large titanic grain and legume reserves while producing alternative foods in underground facilities.
Don't you read and watch and listen to the news in the past up to the present? Russia Taps Smaller Ports to Keep Up Record Wheat Export Pace ...https://www.bloomberg.com/.../2018.../russia-taps-smaller-ports-to-keep-up-record-w...Jun 27, 2018 - Russia has so much wheat that it can't export it all via the usual methods, ... June 27, 2018, 7:00 PM PDT .... The ship-to-ship transfers accounted for 8.8 million metric tons of grain exports last year, which was more than the .
Shops ration sales of rice as US buyers panic | Environment | The ...https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2008/apr/24/food.usa
Apr 23, 2008 - Call to maintain exports as world food crisis grows ... a maximum of four bags of rice per person to prevent supplies from running short. ... China and India, the impact of climate change and policy responses by governments. Always keep in mind that there are 2 kinds of reports. The official public news for the civilian public and the UNOFFICIAL GOVERNMENT-MILITARY NEWS for the government-military higher ups.
As for Japan, that news came from a small newspaper in 2008, short but discreet to prevent panic from Japanese consumers (still mindful of WW II food shortages). But the rest came from diplomatic dispatches from embassies.
As for Russia the UNOFFICIAL EXPORTED WHEAT IS 50 MILLION METRIC TONS but the official exported wheat is 36 million metric tons.
Japan, despite it's extremely high crop yields and higher survivability rating and producing many times more than it needs for a year per each harvest (thanks to certain technologies) is still strangely importing rice, wheat, all kinds of grains, legumes, preserved fruits, fresh fruits and vegetables for it's preservation facilities in order to add it to their already 40 to 50 year freeze-dried/vacuum packed food reserves. This came from a courier dispatch from our embassy, strange but true.
The Japanese still remembers their WW II food shortages, and they have been busy producing unconventional foods using unconventional methods like spirulna, chlorella, wolffia, duanuellia, wolffia arrhiza, azolla https://www.thekitchn.com/is-this-the-food-of-the-future-126964 ,etc just as the Kremlin has ordered the Russian military to do also since the year 2000 since our artificial food shortages caused by WW II, especially the horrors of food shortages in Stalingrad.
Russia Is Exporting More Wheat Than Any Country in 25 Years ...
Feb 15, 2018 - Russia's exports are seen rising to highest for any country in 25 years ... country's grain “allows Russia to maintain a record pace of wheat exports,” SovEcon ... of Agriculture, which pegs this season's amount at 36 million tons.
Official Russian public report is 105 million tonnes to be harvested this year. Unofficial Russian government-military reports to be harvested this year is 375 million metric tons for wheat, rye, triticale, barley, spelt, sorghum (small amounts), oats, and a group of Andean grains quitely cultivated in the frost regions. Potatoes, all kinds of root crops are not accounted for, yet but one of my students reported to me all are being quitely cultivated extensively, freeze-dried, vacuum packed, and stockpiled in military civil defense warehouses.
Legumes such as soybeans and Tarwi are quitely cultivated and stockpiled also. Despite Japans extremely high yields and high crop survivability it still imports for emergency stockpiling purposes, yes it is strange, thank GOD my diplomatic courier links are still working.
The U.S government is very quiet about it's food stockpile situation but our people estimated you have a 4 year reserve of grains, legumes, etc and allowing a calculated amount for exports as a facade for covering up crop losses WITHOUT TOUCHING THE MAIN 4 YEAR STOCKPILES. But for how long they can maintain that facade by exporting crops as a strategy is something only your own government officials can answer. But my one of my students said they can maintain that facade for a year if they're lucky. After that, no more exports, unless the climate becomes amicable again.
Our own surveillance satellites also confirmed a total global grain crop loss of 50% and many countries are begging for increased U.S farm exports. My country on the other hand will continue exporting only the excess surplus and the rest stockpiled as an emergency reserve for 170 million Russians ONLY. Personally, my advice to you is to learn fast and start fast to growing your own food basic staples for all ages as well as for your pets, don't forget your pets needs to eat too and they're family members too!
I just want to see the skies lit up electrically, just like those in the past saw........ I just hope this solar minimum is powerful enough to provide that light show...... sorry if you all lose your electricity, but it will be worth it for me.
I think people drive each other crazy. That is to say it doesn't take much population density for people to freak out and wish death on each other. We are way past that point which is why they report falsehoods hoping to reduce population of everyone else. Jacque Fresco had a much better vision of how to design our society to eliminate allot of that stress and increase opportunity.
So far, all the extreme events, drought, flooding, wild jet stream patterns, cold in So. Hemisphere, now No. Hemisphere, predicted by you solar minimum advocates, all seem to be happening. Can't wait to see how NOAA and other respond when their long range forecasts begin to fail ... how will they spin this?
Those extreme events are caused by global warming. .... See how easy that was..... That's all AGW has to do. That's how they spin it. Cold, that's just weather. Heat, that's climate. Just as predicted. Anything that happens, global warming.
Propaganda in Japan News is pretty high. Totally invested into the Global Warming Hoax. The Sun feels hot even in the early morning. Usually clear cloudless skies in the summer now compared to how Tokyo used to be in the 70's covered in a constant cloudy sky.
The only important thing to understand, is that climate does change, it has always changed, because our solar system is not static, like Democrats and liberals who live in a fantasy land would like to believe..... life is tough, and it's even tougher if you're stupid..... if this Grand solar minimum is as intense as some predict, there's going to be a lot of dead stupid people.
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
Significance to Investors.
