The Oxford dictionary declares that the word convulsion is a variant stem from the Latin convulsus and defines it as a violent agitation, shake, contraction or disturbance. Perhaps, no other word is more applicable to the current state of Earth changes across the globe, as we are witnessing a planet, shaking with irregular and anomalous spasms, convulsing like a woman in deep labor pains moving rapidly towards a fever-pitch high point or release. What that release will be, is anyone's guess. A geological pole shift or a planetary expansion or an ice age or all? Whatever it is, the lives and livelihood of people around the world are changing monumentally and exponentially everyday, as the frequency of weather systems like storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding, and sinkholes increase mysteriously without warning, with sudden and damaging effects.
We begin our latest look at these changes, by reporting on the deadly storms that have barreled through America, killing persons in at least five different states, taking parents and children while asleep in their beds, like a thief in the night. At the time of writing, it has been estimated that the United States experienced nearly 200 tornadoes in just three days.

TEXAS WILDFIRES CONTINUE PATH OF DESTRUCTION!
Wildfires sweeping across hundreds of thousands of acres in parched Texas killed a firefighter, forced hundreds of evacuations -- including an entire town -- and destroyed dozens of homes on Friday, officials said. Strong winds were fueling fires that spanned about 655 square miles, according to the Texas Forest Service. Some of the fires have been burning for a week or more, including three in West Texas that have charred a combined 400,000 acres... A blaze destroyed about 30 homes and left a thick gray haze across the sky as it burned about 20,000 acres around Possum Kingdom Lake, a popular recreation spot about 120 miles west of Dallas. Officials closed the surrounding state park and evacuated campsites, fearing that the fire would block off the only access roads to the wooded area... Three large fires burning in Wichita County, about 150 miles northwest of Dallas near the Oklahoma border, had destroyed about 30 homes. Wildfires also prompted officials to evacuate Gorman, a city of about 1,200 residents... "The fire, it's a bad one," Texas Parks and Wildlife Department spokesman Rob McCorkle said. "This is pretty unusual to have this many fires going across the state at the time." - FOX News.

RADIATION TRACES IN CLEVELAND WATER SUPPLY!
Elevated levels of radioactive iodine-131 have been detected in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency water sample taken from an undisclosed source within the Chattanooga drinking water supply provided by the Tennessee American Water Co. The spiked reading is linked to the badly damaged Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan that was rocked March 11 by a devastating 9.0 earthquake... On March 28, EPA conducted water samples from across the nation in response to the Japanese disaster. Of the 69 drinking water samples taken, 42 showed no sign of iodine-131, according to the federal agency’s nationwide radiation monitoring system called RadNet... According to prior reports since the initial mid-March nuclear disaster in Japan, iodine-131 is produced a couple of ways; one, through the fission of uranium atoms in nuclear power plants, and also in the detonation of nuclear weapons. The most recognized health hazard posed by iodine-131 is that it is linked to the development of thyroid cancer. - Cleveland Banner.REPORT: CARCINOGENS INJECTED INTO AMERICAN WELL!
Millions of gallons of potentially hazardous chemicals and known carcinogens were injected into wells by leading oil and gas service companies from 2005-2009, a report by three House Democrats said Saturday. The report said 29 of the chemicals injected were known-or-suspected human carcinogens. They either were regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act as risks to human health or listed as hazardous air pollutants under the Clean Air Act. Methanol was the most widely used chemical. The substance is a hazardous air pollutant and is on the candidate list for potential regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The report was issued by Reps. Henry Waxman of California, Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Diana DeGette of Colorado. The chemicals are injected during hydraulic fracturing, a process used in combination with horizontal drilling to allow access to natural gas reserves previously considered uneconomical. The growing use of hydraulic fracturing has allowed natural gas production in the United States to reach levels not achieved since the early 1970s. However, the process requires large quantities of water and fluids, injected underground at high volumes and pressure. The composition of these fluids ranges from a simple mixture of water and sand to more complex mixtures with chemical additives. The report said that from 2005-2009, the following states had at least 100,000 gallons of hydraulic fracturing fluids containing a carcinogen: Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Wyoming, North Dakota, New Mexico, Montana and Utah. States with 100,000 gallons or more of fluids containing a regulated chemical under the Safe Drinking Water Act were: Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, Mississippi and North Dakota. - Associated Press.And to top it off, as we approach the one year mark since the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it seems that the the Obama administration has allowed the oil giant to deliberately leave a vast area of water filled with oil and tar balls, a permanent damage to the environment and the jet stream that truly surpasses the 9/11 "terror attacks," and world wars combined. The magnitude of which wont be understood until its too late. A permanent graveyard that symbolizes the descent and imminent collapse of the superpower nation.
THE GULF OF MEXICO STILL UNCLEAN!
Nor are all the beaches as idyllic as they appear to be. Many have an oil layer beneath the sand, while others are strewn with tiny fragments of tar balls. Huge mats of weathered oil are plaguing surf zones where the waves crash in. Parts of the wetlands are seriously contaminated, too. There may be other surprises in store. For several years after the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska's Prince William Sound, the herring population seemed to have survived – but then crashed, never to recover. Birds that fed on affected shellfish in the area have had trouble breeding. And follow-up studies after a 1969 spill off Massachusetts found crabs still badly affected four decades later... The official American position is that "most of the oil is gone" and, indeed, Department of Energy research suggested that naturally-occuring microbes did a good job of gobbling it up. But Prof Samantha Joye, of the University of Georgia – who has actually been to the sea floor in a submarine many times before and after the accident – tells a different story after finding an enormous "graveyard" covered in a thick coat of pollution. She reckons that the microbes managed to munch up only a tenth of the oil. Perhaps most ominously is anecdotal evidence of illnesses among clean-up workers and other Gulf Coast residents, with blood containing elevated levels of the chemicals found in oil. A $19 million official study of 55,000 people has been launched to determine any health effects. - The Telegraph.Around the world, Earth changes continues relentlessly, signaling the new paradigm that has been reached.
