Climate Change Discussion

Well, I’m still skeptical that warming would increase weather extremes but think it would enhance rainfall and lead to more flooding. My reasoning, the polar regions heat up a lot but tropical regions temps remain about the same. That reduces the temperature gradient which would reduce energy available for severe storms to form. But I don’t think CO2 is causing the warming. It’s a trace gas, only 0.04 percent of the atmosphere. Something else bigger is going on that’s warming the climate. Anyway I really enjoy your website. You probably have the best spiritual messages out of all thy psychics online. Have a happy new year.  Joel

First of all, thank you very much for your good wishes for the new year, and may you truly be blessed by God during this next year.  Also, thank you for contributing to the discussion on the blog.

Now, you did not request this, but I would like to try to mention some information which could offer some thoughts on the climate.  I offer it as an effort only to give a simplified and much condensed perspective of some of the forces influencing climate and weather.

You’re right to think there are also other deeper forces at work with regards to climate change.  By itself, CO2 build up wouldn’t cause changes if the CO2 stayed in one place.  But, what CO2 does (plus many other factors) is throw off the balance of atmospheric pressure by the CO2 molecules’ activity generated by sunlight in the atmosphere.  Greater heat (CO2 activity) creates greater pressure from greater total molecular activity, like heating the air in a hot air balloon causes the balloon to expand (expansion is an increasing of the molecular activity that happens).  The heated air molecules are vastly more active pushing against each other creating that higher pressure (more active than non-heated air molecules).

Greater pressure builds up in certain areas.  This pressure pushes on the atmosphere (up, down and sideways) creating more activity in the atmosphere.  More activity in the atmosphere causes different patterns of atmospheric behavior than has been the usual atmospheric behavior in a particular area.  More pressure creates stronger atmospheric forces pushing on the atmosphere, which cause changes in how the normal weather behaved around the planet.  To use the balloon metaphor, as the balloon expands, it pushes the outside air outwardly like ripples in a lake when a boat is set down upon the water.

This means there are more planetary high pressure zones sometimes keeping low pressure zones from moving into an area- low pressure zones being that which helps bring rain – therefore an area has more droughts and heat buildup.  This also means the higher molecular (air) activity of the high pressure atmosphere both pulls (yes, “pulls”) and pushes on the colder arctic air sending it further into previously non-arctic regions thus bringing temperatures lower further than they have been in usually hot regions.

It is the stronger of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet or put another way, the hotter of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet.  Heat is building up in the arctic regions as well as other regions and therefore pushing the changed atmosphere out of the normal patterns – like coloring outside the lines in a coloring book.

What I mentioned before in other articles is something you hit upon in your previous comment – plants – namely trees.  If humanity planted billions, billions and more billions of trees – instead of cutting down billions and billions of trees, we’d have a reversing force helping to make rebalancing happen, with a normalization happen in the atmosphere.

One of the other many factors which I alluded to at the beginning of this article and in the past is that as trees are cut down, the soil/land/dirt is exposed to the sun heating up the soil.  Soil does not hold heat like trees hold/absorb heat, and so the sun heated soil allows greater heat to escape into the atmosphere at night – that’s why deserts are cold at night.  Unfortunately, as more and more land is made desert-like by cutting down trees, more and more soil-born heat rises into the atmosphere, fewer trees utilize the CO2 and the “warming” process continues.

Again, this is by no means all the forces that are active in this process.  This is only a simplified and much condensed explanation of some of the forces happening.

“Imagine a world where no science existed.  On our planet, that world existed during ‘cave-man’ days.   Imagine a world where no religion or spirituality existed.  On our planet, that has been attempted in a few communist countries.  Now, imagine a world where both science and religion/spirituality existed, even sometimes in conflict.  This is the world we live in.

Both science and spirituality either serve humanity or harm humanity – determined by the heart of the person who chooses.”  (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

Psychic Predictions for 2017

Predictions for the United States

In the days immediately after the swearing in ceremony, I see a stepping up of assaults against the North Dakota Standing Rock protesters.  It will last for at least 3 weeks, possibly 5 or more, before those in authority step back to examine other strategies.  Many will seek ways to circumvent the decision by the Corp of Engineers and go ahead with completion of the pipeline.

For the year of 2017, I see the US economy starting off well in the winter and spring months with only a few “not too worrisome” economic ups and downs happening until the summer of 2017.  The general public will not be aware of much of this.  As the US exits summer, greater economic ups and downs will happen.  The economic road in the last few months of 2017 will become rocky indeed.  By the end of 2017, many will be worried because of economic instability starting to be clear and visible to more than just a few.  The year will end with a general feeling of “getting a little beat up.”

Gasoline prices at the pump will slowly begin to climb at the beginning of the year, but will level off through the spring.  By mid-Summer, I see a slight drop before the beginning of Fall when I see gas prices begin to rise again.   I’m seeing a range from $2.40-$2.80/gallon coming back in 2017, although it’s fluctuation could still be all over the place.  What I definitely see is it not staying at the level it is now.  Gasoline prices are going up.

Alternative energies in the US, will not get a lot of government support, and so these companies will call on the people of the US to help the industries grow.  This call from those people in the industry will help generate some popular support, but the general population are also going to be dealing with the beginning of having less spending power.  Those industry leaders who call for finding ways to streamline or lower the costs for people will keep a steady business pace.  Some areas of R&D will slow down because of budget cuts.

2017 will see a continuing growth of personal involvement in grass-roots efforts and activism.  More people will seek ways to become more active in influencing directions the country goes.

For the US, during 2017, I see the potential for some mostly small earthquake activity in Arkansas, related to the fracking in Oklahoma.

The topic of extraterrestrial activity will get attention in the central to Midwest states.

A town in western Florida will have a wonderful event happen.  Somewhere around Quincy, FL area.  I don’t see what it is, but it will make them delighted and happy.

2017 is not the year that affordable health care coverage in the US will be made unavailable for many people.  That’s 2018.

In general, in the US, we will see more extreme weather events in 2017.  Most of it will be during January thru May.

The World

The Pope will travel more in Europe in 2017.  I also see him making a trip to South America and a potential trip into central Africa.  His message will be consistent with his overall message so far.  He is seeking to give hope to people.

In 2017, there will be little progress for peace in the Middle East.  Some cease fire agreements will happen, but eventually they will be broken.

In general, India’s economy will stay at the level it is now.   I don’t see much growth, if at all.  It won’t get worse, though.  India will be waiting to see how other countries go with regards to the new presidency in the US, so they won’t be taking risks in their economic progress.  Ideally, India would do better not waiting to see how the US goes, but step forward to take a lead in economic directions.  This next 50 years is India’s half-century and India has the potential to become a stronger leader than it currently is in the world’s economy.  However, the poverty in India will continue to be a very big problem for people for decades to come.  I’m not seeing progress for the general health care conditions.  But, I do see progress in the decades ahead in the area of education – especially in the 2020’s.

Minor progress will be made in the field of archaeology around the world.  I don’t see any significant discoveries in 2017.  However, there will be further understanding and expansion of those discoveries already made.  Archaeological discoveries in Egypt will not progress that much, or as much as many want.

China’s economy will continue to grow through the 1st half of the year.  It will become rocky during the 2nd half of the year making Chinese government officials nervous.  The Chinese economy in the 2nd half won’t be bad, but it won’t perform as many hoped it would.

In 2017, Japan’s economy will continue to be stable and a good place to invest.

2017 is not the year of direct dangerous activity from Russia.

Canada will be a productive nation in 2017.  I see much good energy and good progress for Canada in 2017.

2017 will be another difficult year for Great Britain.  There will be more governmental upheaval (around April-July) which will cause the country to “stumble” some.  In time, it will stand back up, but it will take more than just 2017.

Australia will have fires to deal with in 2017, with at least one that is massive in size.  The economy in Australia will be strong and stable throughout the year, but I don’t see much growth.  However, I don’t see it going down unless its a very small amount – still strong though.

More to come

First 2016-2017 Weather Prediction

If you haven’t already become aware of this on your own, we’re in for a very hard winter in the next few months.  The signs are here.  The past patterns are here.  Common sense is here.  Warnings are here.  The writing is on the wall. We’ve established that we are on this road now.

What we’ve experienced in December, we’re going to get harder in January and much, much harder in February.

In general, across the nation, the remainder of December will look like “normal” winter weather that one would expect winter to be from past decades.  And I’m seeing January being more of the same only colder.  Then I see February being an “ice block” – frozen solid – nothing but cold – the whole month – with no relief whatsoever.

This is for pretty much the whole country – in general.  I can give some specifics if you’re interested – post a comment and I’ll answer it  when possible.  However, you’ll be able to extrapolate from what I’ve offered so far.

For Texas, a state that doesn’t do winter very well.  We’re going to be right in line with what I said above.   It will be a cold December, then in and out of freezing temperatures in January, then almost all freezing temperatures for all of February.  February will even be hard in the Rio Grande Valley – not as serious as the Texas area north of them, but cold enough to where they/you will need to take steps to protect people, plants, animals and pipes.

I’ve warned about this coming winter for many years.  It’s here and it’s going to be very cold, very difficult and very serious – and ALL ACROSS THE NATION.

AND…. regardless of what people say, this is a result of Global Warming.  Climate change is real.  Remember the words, “Anyone who tells you different, is selling something.”  Just because one may not understand how this is true, or doesn’t want it, doesn’t mean it’s not true.  The same scientific principles and laws of physics, chemistry and mathematics that go into understanding and building computers, go into understanding weather.  No one person completely understands how the whole computer works, but every human being in the United States uses or connects to computers.  Yet, no one questions if their computer is a hoax.

Finally, the difficult winter we’ll go through will ease up when we move into the beginning of March – in the southern half of the US.  The northern half of the US states, will have winter on through mid-March, and the most northern Northeastern states will have winter going to near the end of March.

********

I’m working on the Psychic Reading I did for the election results and will post it as an audio file real soon.  It will be controversial, but it is what I see psychically… (with a caveat that the future can change with prayer and meditation.)

“The teachings of many, many religions hold to “Do unto others, as you would want others to do unto you.”  The God of these religions gave all followers of these religions freewill, and will never take that freewill away.   That is why from time to time, we say ‘No’. ” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2016, Jodie Senkyrik)

Southeastern States and Storms

If you’re living in the Southeastern U.S., pay attention to the hurricane predictions made by the weather services.  The Southeastern states, including Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, and eastern Tennessee, and Virginia are going to get the brunt of the storms generated this Fall, 2016.  There will be flooding and power difficulties.  Make sure you’re going to be prepared.  The closer you are to Florida, as the crow flies, the worse it will be for you.  Flooding will be one of the worst parts of the storms.  There just won’t be enough time for the ground to absorb all the rain water before more storming happens.  The storms will then go up the eastern coastline adding rain to those areas.

I’ve been using the word “storms” because I see the most difficulty coming from what is left from the hurricanes – wind and rain – as they go inland, as well as what is generated by Atlantic hurricanes that get downgraded.  Again, I see lots of flooding.  I also see food shortages and in some areas gasoline shortages worse than just the pipeline break is causing.  So start preparing now.

Although I see most of the inland storming lessening in November, I also see a late storm in November, but it won’t be as serious as what we see in the next weeks before mid-November comes.  Either way, pay attention to the weather services, and if you have specific questions which they’re not answering, you can ask here.

Psychic Predictions Revisited

For the 2016 Hurricane season

I’m seeing a total of 2 (at most 3) major storms come into the Gulf of Mexico and affecting the US during this Hurricane season.  I’m seeing a possible 7, maybe 8 hurricanes/tropical storms affecting Latin America and Mexico.

The 2/3 storms in the US, I see all affecting the Southeast states, with (not in order) 1 going up the west coast of Florida, then into Georgia, Alabama, and Kentucky.  I see one going up into Mississippi and Alabama and then north and east.  And a 3rd, going into Louisiana and Mississippi, then north and northeast.

I also think these South Eastern states will get a lot of rain with flooding beginning in September, that is not related to any hurricane.  However, I’m also seeing the next storm at the same time, so maybe the rain will happen after it downgrades and goes inland.  Maybe that’s what it is, but, I also see a weather front coming from Texas and going into the South Eastern states contributing to rain amounts.

I see possibly 2 hurricanes/tropical storms going upwards along the East Coast, but will dissipate or go out to sea rather than inundate the states, but that doesn’t mean they won’t get storms.  I do see a strong storm for South Carolina.

The Gulf is getting more storms this year because of the location of the birth of these storms – more westward than in past years.  The further out in the Atlantic – eastward – they begin, the more their chances of going up the East Coast.

The Election

I’m looking at the coming factors and circumstances of each of the two main candidates. If Donald Trump wins vs if Hillary Clinton wins.

I’d like to preface this with the statement that even though there are rabid party supporters on both sides that have demonized their opponent, in effect saying, this is a good vs evil battle.  This demonization is not reality.  It is America’s version of extremism and can be/is harmful to the individuals that drink of this cup.  No extremist views are truth or reality, but that doesn’t stop individuals from choosing to be extremists.

It is truth that there is both good and bad in both candidates.  This is true, because there is both good and bad in all souls.  The Edgar Cayce Readings state it as, “There is good in the worst of us.  There is bad in the best of us.”  Those that choose to see this political time as black and white, good and evil, are the ones who are losing the battle with themselves within their own hearts and minds.  Seeing only good in someone or only evil in an opponent is not honest and therefore unhealthy for an individual’s own consciousness.  There are prices to pay in the mind and heart for extremism.

First prediction – I see some people with financial and political power in the US (not candidates) that want to own the government, and will do whatever they think they have to in order to do just that.  (Yes, this is exactly what I see.)  I see these currently being mostly Republican Candidate Supporters because the Republicans are vulnerable to the mindset needed.  These people will choose whomever they think can be allied with them.

If Donald Trump wins, these people mentioned above will think they’ve got it made and can have what they want.  However, Donald Trump won’t be their puppet.  That is working in his favor, but they will still put all the pressure they can on him to try to get what they want. Unfortunately, with that kind of super-pressure, about 18-24 months into his presidency, he will succumb to some demands they have.  His policies will mostly benefit the financial industries and businesses with little change to social or populace services and policies.

If Hillary Clinton wins, this group will pull out all stops and go after her administration with all effort in order to reclaim their hunger for control of the government.  They will not stop at legal acts only.  Their hunger and thirst for political power will seemingly “have no end”.  They will be spurred on by their abject rage at losing the election.  They want the power and they will take it at all costs.  I can honestly use the phrase, “They will come out swinging.”  They will do all this behind the scenes, but with all prejudice and LOTS of money.

What I see psychically is that what President Obama went through with regards to opposition, will not compare to what Hillary Clinton will face.  Her ability to accomplish anything significant will be minimal.  History abounds of many examples of people of power wanting to regain political power and doing whatever they could to get it.  It happened a millennia ago to Christ, – a group of men conspiring behind the scenes to regain their authority and control – and I see it being tried, again.

The only other candidate that can have an impact is the Green Party candidate.  Like past 3rd party candidates, Jill Stein, can also pull a significant number of votes in order to be someone to be aware of.  Ross Perot was a significant 3rd party candidate.  Ralph Nader was a significant party candidate.  3rd party candidates are part of the process.  In 1864, Abraham Lincoln was a 3rd Party candidate beating the Republican and Democrat candidates.  3rd party voters represent citizens who don’t like either candidate.  It can split voters of one party, but as for throwing away votes, I only consider people who don’t vote as throwing away their vote.

I see both candidates being 1-term presidents.

There is a spiritual battle happening, also.  It is not being played out through political boundaries, but rather consciousness boundaries.  The power to persevere within the soul is what will win.  I’ve said it before, sometimes the future doesn’t progress until those that hinder progress die off.

The Economy

Again, if all things stay the same….

I see the whole world’s economy taking a serious downturn.  If Donald Trump wins the presidency, the world economy will begin its downturn in 2017, with the full downturn in place by 2018.  With Hillary Clinton winning, the world economy will begin its downturn in 2018 with the full downturn recognized and in place in 2019 – 2020.  It will not be the fault of the President, but this person will get blamed.

This world economy downturn will become a whole world depression by around 2021.  The US will fare a bit better than the world as a whole.  Either way, it will begin in 2018, and we will begin experiencing its effects at this time, with it getting worse as time continues.  Many will believe it won’t last, but it will be, on average, 2030 before we are able to start pulling ourselves out of it.  Some will claim we’re out of it in the late 2020’s, but that’s just “selling spin”, or “spinning a tale”, (whichever is correct.) 

At this point in time, I’m seeing possible gas prices averaging around $3.50-$4/gallon in the US sometime in 2021.  Still, gas prices fluctuate so much, that they can spike and drop many times yet.  If Mr. Trump wins, I see $3/gallon gas in 2017.  If Ms. Clinton wins, I see $3/gallon gas in 2018, but fluctuate until the beginning of the 2020’s when it stays up.

Venezuela

The energy of destruction which I predicted to manifest in the physical Earth had been raised with regards to it’s vibration through prayer and meditation.  So the energy did not manifest in the large Earth event that it could have.

However…

Some of the energy was dissipated around the world and manifested in the form of other localized events (instead of a massive world-size event).  Nepal’s earthquake is one example of this redirection of energy meant to manifest.  Other earthquakes through the northern countries of South America are also examples of this energy being spread out.

However…

Some of the energy, after having been raised, became manifested through human beings in Venezuela and that is now happening.  Instead of the Earth being the channel for destructive energy, souls have taken on a lot of the raised vibration energy and it is manifesting as destructive events in mass numbers of peoples’ lives in Venezuela, now.

This is so, because there are people/souls/individuals who are willing to allow the energy of hatred, vengeance, bitterness, rage, abuse, come to manifest through their own minds and hearts.  Everyone of us who acts from these feelings and thoughts are part of this.  As the numbers of people willing to bring hatred, vengeance and more grow in ranks, into the individual and group relationships – into the lives of those around them – this energy grows and grows and grows.  When the numbers reach into multiples of millions of people, we see mass destruction happening.  The willingness within hearts then becomes the channel which the destructive low-vibration energy manifests into the Earth.

 

Praying for Climate Change and the Weather: Yes or No?

(The original article was posted here on July 11, 2009.)

I want to bring up a few important points to answer this issue.

#1  God’s answer to any of our problems and difficulties has never been – “Don’t pray.”

#2 The Climate Change problems we have now are vastly created by human consciousness and only minimally by mother nature – whether believed or not.  Those that believe this can know to take steps to help change this.  Those that don’t believe this, usually do little to change this and usually create more problems.  Sadly, many choose to not believe and not do anything to help, than believe and help the work of turning things around.  But the Bible reminds us, “the prayers of a few will save many.”  The prayers and meditations of those willing to work will change and influence all things.

#3  The weather and climate change patterns we have now are also partially karmic related and so, like any other karmic energy pattern manifestation – can be changed and healed through the raising of the vibrations through any means, including prayer and meditation.  The amount of healing and rebalancing is directly related to the amount of prayer, meditation, and spiritual acts of brotherhood and oneness.

#4  If we’re concerned about what to pray for, always remember to include, “Father God, Mother God, please bring the life-giving help of all kinds for all people and all life according to what you know we all need.  Let my prayers go to you to be used to help in whatever way you may know to use them.  Here am I, use me and my prayers for your greatest will and service for all life.   Amen.”

#5  It’s okay to pray for God’s will to be done, even with regards to weather and climate change, because God’s will has never been to punish and smite, and always been to show mercy and give life – even in the form of healthy weather patterns.  God is also desiring for us to learn that praying is worthwhile even if we have to learn how best to do it.

#6  Pray for healthy weather patterns.  Pray for balanced weather patterns.  Pray “HELP US, GOD!”   Pray using no words whatsoever.  Pray for whatever you feel okay with, just pray, and then let God decide what is possible with our prayers.

#7  Praying and meditating accomplishes more than “not praying” and “not meditating”.

#8  Praying is like building a bridge, with prayers being like the bricks from which the bridge is built.  We can’t cross the bridge when just the first few bricks are in place.  The bridge isn’t ready for use until the all of the needed bricks are in place, too.

#9  Praying is like rowing a boat.  With each paddle in the water, and with each effort to row the boat, the boat moves eventually towards its destination.  But, when we stop rowing, there is no progress towards any destination and we are left to the currents made by others’ Karma.

#10 What are we willing to pray for those we love?  Are we willing to pray for healthier weather for those we love, because we know their lives will be helped from it?

#11  Nothing can stop God from helping in our lives more than a closed mind or a closed heart.

#12 Don’t put God to the test.  Don’t guess what God needs to do or not do.  God is not the one here needing to learn something – in this case – to pray – even if it’s for healthy weather patterns and healing the climate changes.

#13 God is not seeking just to change things on the outside of us- like the weather, but rather change things on the inside of us.  It is this change that we keep with us through time, and eventually changes the outside of us – even the weather.

Psychic Predictions for 2016

Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.

Overview

I don’t see ***a lot*** of change happening on a Global scale comparing 2015 to 2016.  By this I mean, I don’t see many major events making large changes from what we have in 2015.  A few – but not many.

What I do see for 2016 more often is a continuation of that which has already been brought forth in 2015.

The Economy

In general, the World’s economy will overall stay steady as she goes.  The economy at the beginning of 2016 will pretty much be where we are at the end of 2016.  However, there will be some economic problems or scares related to Europe, up and down, but ending at a stable place at the end of 2016.

India’s economy is still slowly growing and I see it continue to grow in 2016.  China’s economy, too, will grow, but not as strong as India.   Although, we won’t get any word of it, the country with the initials, NK – I see their economy getting worse.  Sad indeed.  The citizens there will suffer.  The citizens of NK need our prayers, as they always have.  The leader(s) don’t see a need to do anything about it.

Russia’s economy will fluctuate some because of their ties with Europe and Asia both.  They’re invested in the countries around them, as well as their own.  Some of their “investments” in other countries will bring bad results.

For the most part, except for the continued warring, the economies of the Middle East are stable, because they’re based on the sale of oil in the regions.  Moving away from oil in any way will trigger some fluctuation, but in 2016 I don’t see any major disasters for any countries based on oil.

The US economy will continue as is it in 2015.  At the end of Spring, 2016, I see an announcement from Washington that will help boost the economy more, even.

A Presidential Year in the US

As of December 29, 2015, a total of 1,458 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. No, that’s not a typo.  1,458.  That’s the total of all party candidates, independent. write-in, and non-affiliated candidates.  Some of these were “meant as jokes”, but the majority are real people.  There will not be 1,458 names on the ballots, because not all candidates register or meet the requirements to be on the ballots in all states.

As we get closer to the November, 2016 elections, we will see more and more what we can term as -“bizarre behavior” in our government officials.  It’s hard to describe what it will be, but that word – “bizarre” – will be used by many.

What I see is that the diversity of opinions and beliefs in the U.S. can do nothing but remain the status quo.  I’m seeing no success by any candidate in unifying the country.  Every person who has their own opinions and beliefs thinks they’re opinions are right and the other people need to wake up to it.  With this way of thinking, there is no middle ground where people are willing to come together.

I see extremism in American politics being the theme of the November, 2016 campaign trail.

US

The economy for the US will stay stable and doing well.  The gasoline prices will remain at a lower level, but look for them starting to inch up around the end of the summer.  I’m seeing a “flash” of an average price around $2.25 being the high by the end of the year.  This will be an average with some areas of the nation being only slightly higher.  What I’m also seeing is how volatile this price is – moved by human consciousness which moves like flocks of birds in the sky.

I’m seeing several medical breakthroughs announced in 2016.  These will get little press time.  What is getting press will be several more mass shootings happening sometime around May.  Prayers can help to curb, minimize and even stop some of these shootings.

Overall, 2016 won’t be a “great” year for the Midwest large-scale farming or the US car industry.  Although starting strong throughout the spring, midsummer will bring downward trends and struggles.

I see the immigration issue in the US as being a mud wrestling pit.  There is no clarity and cleanliness to this issue.  The politics of this issue will increase the separation of the divided camps.  I see no worthwhile progress, just running for office dictating what is said and done.  Congress will have another year of passing a low amount of legislation.

The economy will be good in general and overall.  Food prices won’t increase much.  Local farms will continue to serve their local customers.  The drought will hit somewhat, but not as bad as in the past (in general.  Different states will have different levels of it hitting.)

Africa

I see Africa struggling with similar issues as 2015.  I see areas where government officials ignore the needs of the citizens in need, illnesses and diseases getting a toe hold.

I also see other nations reaching out to help African nations and this will keep Africa’s problems from getting too much worse – it won’t remove or solve the problems, but it will help it from getting much worse.  A few areas will have serious problems.

Europe

Europe’s nation-cooperation will become more a stormy struggle and will require a great deal of hard work.  Some of that hard work will come in 2016.  The Syrian refugee issues will still be a major issue through the 1st half of 2016.  The hugely vast majority of refugees will come to be seen as good citizens in the years ahead.  But, it will also be years before the stigma is worn away.

The Middle East

I see an optimistic announcement coming from Washington sometime near the end of spring to mid-summer that a breakthrough has come in negotiations for better cooperation and acceptance among nations in the Middle East.  This will be an uneasy breakthrough – and will come from a “compromise” – the definition of this compromise being “when both sides are equally dissatisfied with the results.”

Australia

Australia’s economy will not gain but will not lose much either.  It is relatively active, but won’t increase, even with the incentives brought in.  The problem is the vast amount of foreign investments are going to wait and see what happens, rather than take an aggressive or optimistic approach for 2016.  On the plus side, the economy won’t lose that much because of it.  Were foreign investments to take a more aggressive approach in vast numbers, Australia’s economy would grow.

Meanwhile, the drought will continue through 2016, as well.  I see more potential for fires.  Even with this happening, I see Sydney continuing in positive and growing ways.  The energy of the city will be more celebratory than discouraging.

South America

They will continue with some major earthquakes in the same old areas – mostly western S.A.  Mudslides will accompany the earthquakes.  The differences between 2015 and 2016 in so many areas of comment will be almost unnoticeable, except in Southwest S.A. which has a potential large destructive event which would be reported in world news.  Prayers for this area will bring the destruction down to a small event – hardly worth mentioning and therefore not by news agencies.

The Pope

The Pope will be more active in the 1st half of 2016, continuing to be in the public eye, but will stay more close to Rome in the 2nd half with much less visibility and press.  His speeches will focus mostly on the poor, needy and suffering people in the world – some about the refugees.  His messages will carry some sternness towards world leaders for the recalcitrance towards compassion and helpfulness of many nations’ leaders.

Natural Disasters

While the world will continue to experience natural disasters, I’m not seeing a hugely world event in 2016.  The 2nd of 3 events I saw for August, 2015 has been broken up into smaller, better handled events over a number of areas, including what I think is deep water earthquakes off the coast of N.W Africa.   If this does happen as I’m seeing it, it will be in the same area near where the southern tip of Atlantis existed over 12,000 to 200,000 years ago.

In General

Because of the lower fuel costs, there will be less incentives for automakers to proceed with more efficient vehicle production.  However, the research into electric vehicles will continue – especially in Japan.  In the years ahead, the progress made in Japan, in the electric vehicle batteries will lead the industry, while American manufacturers will do more observing than research.  The Tesla company will have some improvements, but Japan’s research is still ahead.  Japan’s intention is to move the auto industry further into the electric vehicle direction by 2020.  They see the China market – with it’s current pollution problems – and envision Japan’s cars as being a solution for China’s problems along that line.  This is in actuality a positive move and will put them ahead of the game again, leaving the American manufacturers playing catch-up in electric vehicles as a solution.  The growing China economy and growing spending power, plus China’s growing numbers of younger car buyers will be very open to electric vehicles.  There will be a push for this to happen in 2019 and 2020, but will lessen going into 2021-2023.  The focus during 21-23 will be on trying to come up with the next generation of technology for electric cars.

At the same time, during these years gas powered vehicles will still have the dominate share of the market.  Unfortunately, for American car manufacturers, they are looking to much to the present and past, while Japan’s are looking more to the future.

Medicine and Medical Care

We won’t see much change over all from 2015 to 2016.  A few unmentioned breakthroughs in medicine will be announced in a few medical journals.  The controversies with vaccines will continue with the same arguments happening on both sides, but little pursuit to solidify any deeper insight or understanding of vaccines and autism.  If more medical research were to happen in the field, more would be revealed that hasn’t been understood before.  Currently, the status quo is pursued by pharmaceutical industries and the medical community (which doesn’t have research to say anything else.)  The opposition to vaccines won’t go away soon, and may get louder until the medical community starts asking more questions about what is possible with vaccines and autism.  Research is happening, but only in small pockets and effort is made more to ignore it.

Update:  A New Energy

A new type of energy which I’ve been seeing coming into our lives within the next few decades is being delayed.  The person I foresaw as spearheading the research is taking a longer approach in his research and therefore could add another 7-8 years before he finally develops his theories.  The delay may only move the completion of the research into working models from 2045 or so, to 2050-2052.  This also will change the timeline for the world’s beginning to make welcome contact with extraterrestrials, who, more than anything else, are waiting for humans to develop our own technologies to help the planet – technologies in energy that will move us away from polluting, non-sustainable energy sources.

Food

The Spring of 2016 will see a bountiful harvest of local producing small farms.  The weather from 2015-2016 will help bring water to the farms.  Even though flooded, many areas will benefit from the water for food crops.  As mentioned earlier, the large-scale farming operations will have trouble from the same weather.  The small farms can recover faster.

2017 is different.
