2019 is going to be a somewhat more difficult year for so many people on his planet, and I’m not going to hold back in what I write in this article. There are disasters and there are positives. Life, as we know it, will change, but life will also persevere in all locations. 2019 by itself will not be a painfully more difficult year for every one of the 7+ billion people, but everyone will be affected by several things throughout the year. It is one of the 2 remaining years which are moving us deeper into the darker, low vibration energy/manifestations. These low-vibration energy manifestations will be recognized by disasters both human-derived and natural. By “moving us deeper”, I mean the beginning of the years will appear and be experienced as being better than the end of the years, in many ways.
I will mention FIRST, that prayers and meditation for the goodwill for all people and the well-being for all life, are that which will strengthen the Spirit and Energy of the Family of Man and all life, if and when we’re willing to bring forth Light – through expressing Love, Kindness, Compassion, Cooperation, Encouragement, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Support, and more (flowing through ourselves) – and for all life on this planet – especially during this time. Prayers for all life will absolutely help all life. Absolutely – as in ‘absolute help’ – real help – to persevere through these coming times and experiences.
Humanity won’t easily see the difference between the two possible futures – with prayers vs. without prayers, (a few will), but changes happen when one’s heart is the source of prayers – for the goodwill and well-being of all people. Why for “the goodwill and well-being of all life”? Because this prayer will have the strongest impact on humanity, all of nature, and the future. The predictions I speak of here are drastic to some parts of the planet. They will affect, to greater or lesser degrees, all of the planet. While many people’s lives will be minimally impacted, many people’s lives will be greatly impacted. The news is already reporting regular disasters, both natural and man-made, which are affecting people in a wide variety of places – sometimes places which are surprising.
For Britain: The Brexit is considered a mess, and it will become an even bigger mess in the 1st 5 months of 2019. After that, many of the loudest voices will consider the act of screaming the loudest isn’t working for their side anymore and will then begin working on solutions. See efforts beginning April and May. I see another 13-16 months of work for things to reach a point of acceptance. The reason why efforts are not working out is because of the energy of so many of the British people not wanting Brexit. The consciousness of the people is a formidable energy force, and it can prevent events from happening – whether the events are positive or negative.

Worldwide – As one person put it, “The predictions that were made – are happening.” (This includes my own. Scroll down to see the right hand column Category list: Weather) During 2019, we will see more natural disasters which will affect millions of people. Weather related disasters are both caused by natural patterns and the effects of Climate Change/Global Warming. “Let those who have eyes to see, let them see. Let those who have ears to hear, let them hear. Let those who are blind, stay blind. Let those who are deaf, stay deaf.” These are famous words and referring to this time in history. Let there be no doubt here, weather is caused by human consciousness. Climate Change is being caused by humans. We will continue to have fights in the US about Climate Change, brought on by different people with different political agendas, rather than the science being questionable, which it is not.
The overall weather throughout the world will help bring greater flooding in the southern Asian nations, colder weather in Russia, erratic temperatures and erratic rainfall in Europe, and destructive drought and extreme heat without rain in the Midwest of the US.
In the US, more extreme temperatures will be experienced and the stamina of the people struggling with these effects will weaken due to growing tiredness and discouragement from the onslaught of damaging weather. The fires in California in 2018 are only a forerunner for the heat that will enter into the Rocky Mountains, and eventually potentially turning the Midwest into scorched land. The day is coming that the Midwest will see hotter temperatures than it has ever seen – drying up the land and making it unable or extremely difficult to grow crops. While not all of this will manifest in 2019, it will begin in 2019, and will eventually move towards that, on through the next 7 years with the very worst of it being 2025 before relief comes in the form of temporary better weather. [PRAYERS CAN CHANGE THIS!]
Europe’s problems with Climate Change will grow, as well. The weather will bring greater amounts of rain throughout most regions – causing more flooding in various areas. The winters will be colder, in general, through central Europe. In 2019, Europe will face these changes, but this pattern will become regular from now on. There will be no year that Europe will not continue with this scenario when comparing it to the past decades. Europe’s growing seasons will be affected, and it will take several years to adapt the agriculture industry to the changes in weather. The weather changes are here and will remain with the next few generations of people through this century. This will create greater yearly demands for energy during the winter months.
Asia, in 2019, will begin to see regular yearly massive weather systems which will do massive damage to distinct yet massive areas of the continent. We, in the US, will hear about some of this via reporting the news, but many of the people of Asia will be going through devastating weather. By many, I see mostly rural areas being affected long-term in Asia as opposed to urban areas, because cities tend to have collective systems and structures in place to recover from the weather related disasters quicker, while rural residents have less collective support and structure helping to recover. Mountainous regions, in general, will be very much affected – with many large mudslides related to more rain than normal, and news of these will be heard around the world – because some will be great in size.

With regards to natural disasters, the years 2019 and 2020 will have a greater than average share of natural disasters – volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and typhoons. I consider these effects on humanity to be different than man-made or economic disasters, like recession (which is slowly beginning,) war, and erratic, non-stable economies.
We will enter into 2019 with open eyes, watching for disasters, and on the whole, they will continue happening in South America – where they already are happening, the Pacific Rim will have a mixture of earthquakes and volcanic activity, Southeast Asia will continue to experience earthquakes and Tsunamis, and finally, in 2019 several very large Typhoons will travel through the Pacific Ocean. I see fewer hurricanes in the Atlantic in 2019 only, and the larger ones (right now I’m seeing this) will not threaten the US much. I see two (1 larger and 1 smaller) storms which will come into the Southeastern states of the US – Florida, Georgian, Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina: mostly rain affecting these states. Right now, what I’m seeing is that they are not as destructive as the last 2 years have been. While there will be concern, I don’t see the same amount of danger happening in these states.
There will be some natural disasters outside of these examples, but I’m not yet identifying their locations. I see small storms (compared to large hurricanes) come into or rather build within the Gulf of Mexico. One may develop into a tropical storm.
Every area of the planet and all people of the planet will be affected by Climate change and natural disasters. The smoke from fires, the ash from volcanoes, the mosquitoes from flooding, as well as drought causing some agriculture failures. These affect everyone – even those people and life not in the area of the destruction. People will adapt somewhat. Wildlife and ‘nature’ will not adapt in the same way and much damage will come. Extinctions will happen.
In 2019, Puerto Rico is not a target for another hurricane, but I do see storms which will bring much rain. The Caribbean areas will also have a year similar to the last 3 years. I see 3-4 storms. There is a chance they won’t develop into large hurricanes. HOWEVER, if any develop into hurricanes, I can see 1 grow to a category 2-3 while in that area. I’ve mentioned this possibility before, and I still see it going north of Puerto Rico. At this time, I still see 1 storm hitting Puerto Rico in 3 years, possibly in 2 years, but it won’t be equal to Maria in 2017. Even though it can be easy to dismiss the statement about praying, prayers can, will, and do truly help to change destructive weather. The more prayers and meditations for this purpose, the more change. The more Light we bring in, the more change happens. Whether believed or not, weather is a manifestation of human consciousness and it can be changed by human consciousness.

Around the world, even more advances will happen in medicine. In some parts of the world, these advances will reach people – Europe especially. In 2019, the health care industry in the US, will offer no solutions to the erratic state of health care in the US. Financial devastation will still happen to some people. Many will be looking towards Alternative Healing Methods in order to find hope and help. While Alternative Healing Methods are derided and criticized – and sought to be shut out of being used, because they are anecdotally helpful, they will continue to be suggested and noted via the Internet. The pharmaceutical corporations will continue to lobby against Alternative Healing Methods, and in 2019, we will see their efforts increase with much media and online statements intending to turn people away from Alternative Healing Methods and make them illegal. In the US, the pharmaceutical corporations will seek to spread this “war”. (It is an effort to eradicate use of Alternative Methods, so I use the term “war”.) They will try to further this agenda in Europe, Canada and some East Asian nations. Their efforts in Mexico and East Asian nations will not be successful because their influence cannot reach the different consciousnesses of the peoples. But, in the US, fear will be generated by the Pharma. Corps. and this will effect the consciousness in general.
Still, the Alternative Healing cottage industry and the presence of Alternative Methods information on the Internet will continue to be present. Anecdotal information – information people share of their own experiences with certain healing methods or ingredients – will continue to influence the trying of Alt. Healing Methods. The Pharmaceutical information against non-pharmaceutical treatments will be meant to cause fear, and dissuade people away from them. It will succeed in some measure. An individual’s own effort at studying and researching healing methods will be the strongest force against the fear-based information onslaught. The interesting result will be several things – more and more Americans will look to Canada as a source of Medical Treatments, those informed more thoroughly with Alternative Medicine will grow a stronger and more entrenched base of people seeking to further it, and over time the reputations of the Pharmaceutical Corporations will suffer from being recognized as fostering misinformation and fear. Many doctors will work to help bring truthful information to the public. The struggle with health care in the US will continue for many decades, yet. I don’t see medicare for all happening in this decade even though support for it will grow. I see some changes to who qualifies being changed in the next decade, though, but not until after 2026.
Tremendous medical research discoveries will happen in the next 8 years. The treatment of childhood diabetes will make great strides over the next 5 years and will see magnificent treatments come forth. For 2019, I’m seeing a little bit of advances in the treatment of Alzheimers. Some medications will slow it down. The effort to continue to raise prices of medicine treatments will continue, while the public push back will also continue. Pressure from the people can bring about better options.
With a change in elected officials, the ACA will continue, but there are still ways in which wrenches can still be thrown into the gears. There will be efforts in the House of R. to make some changes to make it better, but the path to passing such a bill in the Senate and the president signing it, is “uphill”. For the most part, there will not be any major changes to it in 2019.

In 2019, Cholera will begin to spread in a few areas of the planet, that are affected by natural disasters, including Asian nations and Cholera will increase somewhat over the next 7 years to come. There will be small outbreaks with other diseases in South American because of the massive rural destruction from weather related disasters PLUS diseases coming from (of all things), deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. There will be new evolved/mutated diseases coming from the Rainforest itself. No amount of destruction of the Rainforest would stop it. The natural life in those particular regions of the Amazon Rainforest have adapted to the evolved/mutated diseases and humans not native to the regions will contract the new diseases.
China will be hit with outbreaks of diseases in particular areas, but we won’t hear about them here in the west. In general, they won’t threaten large numbers of people outside China. They have the ability to eventually handle these outbreaks, but many lives will be lost. In the west, the CDC will be strained from the work they will have over the next 7 years.
Ebola will not be eradicated, and will continue to be present in a few areas of Africa for years to come (with some of it moving north). Many other diseases will be faced because of the disasters which are coming. Dysentery will be one of those diseases coming from disasters.
The conflicts in the US over vaccinating children will continue for many years yet, because of the distrust of the US money driven health care system, – a system of treatments based on whether you have money to pay, rather than one based on care for the individual, distrust of the vaccine manufacturers, as well as a persistent distrust of the general medical profession’s attitude that doctors always know what’s right, and research which points to better protocols needing to be examined for use. (Somewhat related to this – The US has an extremely hard lesson to learn: learning that trusting money more than trusting the heart will lead to serious problems of all kinds – problems which can eventually end the existence of the US as we know it. This can contribute to the US changing its structure in the 23rd century with the US split into 3 or 4 different countries with separate governments.)
Meanwhile, I’m seeing several medical progress announcements being made in 2019, but I’m not yet able to identify which diseases or medical issues they will be announcing about. One major one will be this spring, with another announcement happening in July.

Spiritual Experiences and Spiritual Connections:
We will see more spiritual seeking in the latter part of 2019. “We will see more” refers to media attention and Internet information on individual experiences rather than great groups of people opening to spirituality. The true spiritual journey happens on the individual level, not on the group level. While this will NOT be a widespread movement, this will begin a process of slow, more often, reporting of individual stories that help to open individual people’s minds and thoughts to spiritual involvement in everyday life. Over the next 7 years, during these “some of the most difficult” times for humanity, there will be many other stories of spiritual experiences and connections which will spread throughout the communication methods (Internet, media, etc.)

2019 will start January with political hope for Democrats and those who elected them. The Republicans will be working to solidify their bases. Except for introductory announcements in January, around mid-Feb (13th?) the public will hear about Congressional plans – The Democrat’s plans for putting forth legislation and Congressional investigations, and Republican’s plans for fighting them all the way. Mid-Feb through March will begin the process of conflict. The conflict will be loud, and this wave of conflict will continue through into the summer. Meanwhile, other investigations will begin in the spring, building up through into the fall. President Trump will face political challenges, but not yet serious enough to threaten his presidency, until the Fall when serious threats and challenges are then appearing. Whether we are pro-Trump or anti-Trump, and while the questions will come up as to the future, I do see Donald Trump as the President still, at the end of 2019. Some will be happy about this, some will not.
The public will see a few more governmental positions change around mid-Jan & Feb (2019), early spring, then again at the end of summer. These will not be top positions, but a few (what I consider) “2nd tier” positions.
This is another year which will shift both political parties’ directions away from Trump in 2020. The Democrats will feel emboldened. The Republicans will begin to resign themselves to the inevitable – run someone else or lose to the Democrats. 2019 will have many candidates announce themselves as running for the US President in 2020. Republican candidates will begin to announce themselves throughout the Spring. Lindsay Graham will be one of them and Mitt Romney possibly. Three other Republican Senators will also announce they will run. I see eventually about 4-5 Republicans seriously running to replace President Trump. I see a slew of Democrats – 14-15 that will announce their candidacy. Senators and House Representatives, and three women candidates announcing. I do NOT see Hillary Clinton running again although the question will be coming up for her and her supporters. I will not state in this article what I see as potential outcomes at this time. I have stated in other public readings what I see for 2020’s elections.
I see many people considering there to be very serious information and testimony which has yet to be made public in the reports from those investigations happening. They consider the allegations to be valid and serious. The investigations will not be considered frivolous. The information revealed will shift Republican support to having a new 2020 candidate. However, the Republican Party will have two factions – 1 faction for Trump continuing to be the 2020 candidate, mostly from his base, and 1 faction for a new candidate, mostly from the Republicans in Congress.
I’ve already mentioned much about what I see regarding the person who will be our next President. I have mentioned in several places that Donald Trump will be a 1-term president. I also had mentioned that if Hillary Clinton had won, she also would have been a 1-term president.
In 2019, little progress beyond saying nice words, will happen between China and the US. Tariffs will continue. The hidden reason and use for them by both sides is as a method of punishment. In 2019, the current relationship the US has with North Korea won’t get better, but it won’t get much worse, either. There will be posturing and “surface” challenging words, but this is more for show on both sides.
Most information coming forth regarding the Russian government will be about how the Russian government is involved with political situations and arenas in the nations surrounding Russia. The Russian government will prove to be very active in world politics, involving themselves in ways on the world front. This is an effort to control more countries, as the Soviet Union did. Meanwhile, the Russian people are facing entering into more difficult times for them, with 2019 the beginning of more difficult economic times in the years ahead. While the Russian people are used to hard times, in general, the Climate Change, in the next 6 years for them will bring disasters in Russia which no one could have imagined, and they will not easily be ready for. Fortunately, these won’t be in every year. Prayers are needed for the people of Russia and of Asia.
In 2019, the US and Canada relationship will be strained again by President Trump’s criticism. I see the Canadian government more acting to stay quiet and not contribute to more conflict – staying back mostly from engaging in return criticism.
In 2019, immigration policy problems will continue, and April/May will see a rise in media attention surrounding legal proceedings. However, attention to this will diminish as we move into Summer. As summer ends, then all media will be focused on what comes out of the investigations on through the end of 2019. I do see construction begin on a border wall, but then I see it abandoned – not from lack of money, but from lack of political will/support. If things continue as I see now, I do not see a border wall being completed.
I see more US businesses individually planning actions for addressing Climate Change, much in line with the Paris Agreement. I also see the US returning to the Paris Agreement after the new president is in office in 2021. (Not in 2019, though). Little change will happen in 2019 regarding the US place in the Paris Agreement. 2019 will also be another year where a huge amount of political news will take center stage.

The US Economy:
In the Spring, 2019, and some after then, because of the greater political upheavals, the Stock Markets are going to react with erratic spikes, both up and down. This intermittent spiking will continue through at different times of the year – end of March to April, midsummer, 1st half of October. I don’t see it being as bad as we’ve seen recently (Dec, 2018), but it will happen too often for people to feel confidence. This Wall Street instability will influence the larger corporations to pull back on risk-taking. There will be mostly a desire to “play it safe” and not expand. Small businesses, in general, won’t immediately feel a drop in business, but over time in 2019, the slow down will start to be felt. Recessions are coming, but 2019 will only show some unmistakable evidence of this during the 2nd half of the year. When we move into the 2020s, we will be entering into a time of several years that a recession will develop, ultimately to 2023/2024.

I see more “grass roots” efforts to move away from fossil fuel derived energy. This will be done by smaller energy companies rather than large nation-wide efforts. I see alternative energy businesses continue to do well. Consider these to invest in. Whether popular or not, electric cars are the future. Whether electric cars are selling right now or not, electric cars are the future. Innovations in the next few decades will bring this about.
Problems in the Middle East will escalate. Watch for this during May, June and July.
While not readily known, the Pope’s health will keep him home. If he chooses to travel for humanitarian meetings and causes, his health will take a downturn and it won’t remain hidden from the public.
In 2019, Facebook will run into more trouble with more announcements of customer information being “allowed” to go to outside interests. Watch for this at the beginning of the summer.
In 2019, as I mentioned in many prediction pages before, I still see local involvement and community involvement being the strongest and most productive place for efforts where people can help each other, as opposed to Federal efforts. It will be local connections and local communities where the real work gets done to help people’s lives.
The reason that psychics are announcing what we’re seeing for the future is because we are facing some of the worst of the difficulties – economic and natural disasters – that people of Earth are going to go through from 2019-2026. We will slooooooowwwwwllllyyyyyy begin to come out of the difficult times in 2026-2027 to the mid-2030s and afterwards. Here at the beginning of 2019, we have not seen the worst of it.
There will NOT be a planetary breakdown in society and nations. This will not be what happens. Societies around the world did not breakdown during the Great Depression or during WW2, but during WW2, in some unique places (not all places) in the Earth, because of unique circumstances and unique politics in certain places, living individual and community-based lives became harmful and deadly for those unique places.
We can have a positive perspective of these times if we base that positive perspective on an attitude of fortitude, determination, helpful cooperation, friendship, and brotherhood. We will see many positive local community endeavors helping people. We are a resilient species, and we’ve been through equally difficult times in our history, coming out the other end with greater understanding and higher levels of strength and ability to forge new ways into the future.

Questions, Comments and Additions
Added January 6, 2019
- In 2020, a change to the Presidency is possible, and could grow more probable as 2020 progresses. If Donald Trump is caused to leave office early, or removed from being active, Mike Pence takes over as possibly “Vice-President as Acting-President”. He would make full use of the opportunity. Some would be happy about this, some would not.
- “Can you elaborate more on the statement, “Problems in the Middle East will escalate. Watch for this during May, June and July.”? … Thank you.” D.M.
I’m seeing many more problems and increasing heated verbal battles regarding Saudi Arabia. This will be like a pot boiling over. Increasing conflict will continue to rise with the worst beginning around this spring. There may be less media information, but some of the backlash within and with S. A. will be hidden from the outside world. Some of the push back actions from the S. A. government will be hidden from the public.
- “I finished reading your 2019 predictions. In them you mention that you’ve discussed the results of the 2020 elections in other postings, but I don’t recall seeing this information, except in your reading shortly after the 2016 elections. Could you elaborate on what you see for the 2020 presidential elections? Thanks!” L.
Yes, I go into some detail in the audio file of the 2016 elections reading. There is more information there, so I’m just going to refer you to that, right now. You can also check out the right hand column section of “Categories” where I list the “Presidency/Politics” category. I’ll go into detail on the 2020 elections in the 2020 predictions. I will say that we’ll see the campaigning start ramping up this spring and right before summer arrives. We’ll then see the field of Democratic candidates.
- “What will happen to the Kurds?” E. B.
The Kurds, as well as many other groups of people around the world, will continue to suffer from the actions of others and other governments. The late spring and early summer months will be especially difficult times for the Kurds, specifically. Their lives are another example of people who need help from those who are willing to help. We have seen many human examples of mass cultural suffering and sorrow throughout the 20th century and now in the 21st. Pray for the Kurds, also, because all prayers that go out for them will help these people in some way.
- (Added Feb 4, 2019) Now, I’ve read your psychic predictions for 2019 with high interest. You mention “Southeast Asia will continue to experience earthquakes and Tsunamis, and finally, in 2019 several very large Typhoons will travel through the Pacific Ocean”. In this context, as I’m living at the outskirts of Tokyo, what can you see in particular for Japan? Many thanks in advance! L.P.
As of today, in 2019, I do see the southern half of Japan most affected by storms, but not taking a direct hit from any Typhoon. However, this can change, as I see potential (potential only) for a small but major storm which could move across Japan. This would be between April and June. I do see that the affect on the southern half of Japan will be enough to be very alert to dangers. The main force of the storms will go into China and more southerly. In the last 5 months of 2019, I see a possible 3 typhoon/storms for the Pacific Ocean, but the path being south of Japan (with 1 possibly going north of Japan.) The southerly path puts the Philippines in danger with a real possibility of taking another direct hit.
“We live each day with the choice to pray, to love, to show mercy and compassion towards others for their own sake, knowing inside our very soul that these things are worthwhile, and are needed in a weary, weary world in order to bring that world out of the manifestation of those destructive acts which we created lifetimes ago, yet haven’t yet healed.
We can heal [destructive] events like the one in Las Vegas, before it happens. We have already done so much healing. Events destined to manifest, have been dissolved and healed, [never to happen]. We need only keep on keeping on with this work.” (Excerpt from “Las Vegas Horror”)
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 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
Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.
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.
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.
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.)
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’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’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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
There is a huge resurgence of Do-It-Yourselfers and independent living enthusiasts in the U.S., also called “getting off the grid” with the numbers growing all the time. The Internet is one of the best tools for finding out how to do this.
This is perceived by some as extremism. If one thinks the nation is going to turn upside down in the next few years, and that they’ll be vindicated, then, yes, I would say this is an extreme view. However, what I see isn’t that there is an extremism movement, but that people are tuning into their intuition, recognizing that their lives are dependent on their own actions, promises from any ‘outside-of-themselves source’ i.e. the government, are rarely going to happen, if at all. An important factor in this perception is not knowing the correct timeline for this self-reliance to be most needed.
The movement isn’t happening just because of fear. Extremism is happening because of fear, but not the movement to DIY and becoming more independent. This is based on an inner resource. What I “see” is that times are coming when DIY skills and grid independence are going to be needed, and people are intuitively tuning into this need for more self-reliance – a need which will grow in the coming decades as populations grow around the entire Earth.
All this is coming forth into our awareness, because it’s all going to be needed. But, don’t mistake this for living alone and relying only on one’s self. This is not what is needed. As human beings, we need one another. We need to rely on each other, as well. God created us to need one another, and efforts to be an island unto one’s self don’t succeed. Neighborhoods and communities which foster cooperation and helping one another have been successful for millennium after millennium.
The road ahead I see is this:
Food prices are set to rise significantly in the next three years specifically (2014-2016) at a greater rate of increase than average. Starting in 2016, poor government actions and judgement directly impacting several contributing factors will set the foundation for 6 years of reduction of support to the majority of people, with support instead going to corporations and bigger business.
This will push for even greater reliance on corporations and bigger businesses to supply the needs of most Americans. In general, I see most people who run corporations seeking to maximize profits (which corporations are always designed to fulfill.) However, in the U.S. with corporate level efforts to control more and more of consumer markets, many of the alternatives to corporate products, which are available today, will no longer be allowed to be available.
Those that are seeking to be DIYers and move towards more independence will be in better positions to ride through the years ahead, because, after the 6 years, which end in 2022, there will be no turning back the tide of what is coming.
The population is rising around the planet leading up to 8 billion people. This will lead, going into the 2030’s and 2040’s to experience much of what was experienced in the 1930’s. A trend in the 2020’s will lead into the decade of the 2030’s where there will be a tighter supply of food. It will be harder to afford what is affordable in today’s world. The hardships will fall on the vast masses of people. The government will be unable to do anything to help, because this will have been set in motion many decades even before the results manifest.
We see today the results of decisions made decades ago. In the same way, today’s decisions, whether left or right, good or bad, will manifest decades from now.
What Can We Do
What can we do as people today? Educate ourselves, believe in ourselves. Rely on that which comes from within. Let go of thinking that someone other than our self will make our lives better. Let go of thinking that an elected official controls the quality of our own life.
Allow yourself to entertain the real idea that there may be more to life than just a physical existence. Ask the spiritual world to come forth for the purpose of helping. Entertain the idea of Christ as “a better friend” to us than we’ve imagined, and we’ve been to Him, and Him willing to give His very best to help His friends who welcome Him in. Remember, Spiritual help that goes unused or untried, accomplishes nothing. Spiritual help only becomes practical – only works in helping us with our lives on the Earth – if it is practiced and put to practical and pragmatic use in our lives – by applying our Spiritual principles to the different parts of our everyday lives for the goodwill and benefit of ourselves and others together.

In which countries do you see the food shortages being most severe?
In this decade, worldwide, we’ll see the current shortages in Africa and Asia continuing, and we’ll see movement towards shortages caused by drought in North America & Europe. I state it this way because growers ship their food products across country borders. The food shortages will be felt at the continent level in some areas.
This will be a slow process and not really recognized as being anything but a natural progression from the past and current weather extremes that bring about drought vs. floods.
However, I’m not saying that the whole Earth will have food shortages. There will be areas that are still abundant with food, but at increasing prices.
As I will always say, local production of food is the most effective way of facing this problem. Relying on the giant factory farms to produce the food is a great way to avoid healthier foods. Food that must travel more than several hundred miles has a different energy than the home energy. This can be felt by those who can sense or feel energy. Still, if a person is hungry, it doesn’t matter where the food comes from as long as it comes.
When you say you see an ‘event’ happening in 2015 and it’s man made and economic, do you mean a stock market crash? If it is, will it be global or isolated in a certain area?
It is not a stock market crash, which actually cannot happen as it did in 1929, because of laws and precautions put in place to stop a crash in progress if it began. Downturns, yes, but crash, no.
The event will begin in an isolated area and spread to have global effects. I think what I see is that it will begin at the beginning of the summer of 2015, or signs of it happening beginning in the summer, but will have a culmination and highest impact in August, 2015. The impact on the economy will be seen as time progresses. I’ll continue to look at this and begin posting about it in 2014.
At one time on this planet, there were creatures much larger than us who probably ate a lot more (of course I mean the dinosaurs). So why won’t the earth have enough food to feed everybody? Will the GMO foods that Monsanto is pushing have anything to do with it? Will organic food prevail?
Currently, people choose what to eat based on many socioeconomic factors. This means that there are many “tastes” as to what people want to eat and are willing to eat. People’s different tastes will always be varied in quality, ingredients, price, etc. This means there will continue to be a market for the variety of “foods” that exist even like today. As today, so tomorrow. Some will choose convenience. Some will choose cheap. Some will choose healthy, etc. Organic food will be available for those willing to buy it. Non-organic food will be available for those willing to buy it. If people buy it, others will supply it. What we will see is more of an effort to try to curb the food wasting but even this is done voluntarily. The most impact on people will be the price of food going up. And another opportunity to say it – local food production – including personal gardening – is a tremendous solution for these problems and will become more prevalent as people recognize this.
And in all of this, remember, by the 2040’s we’ll have reached in the neighborhood of 8.5 billion people on the planet. I’m not seeing it ever get above 9 billion – ever.
There are people who believe in a Christ figure – they call him Maitreya – and that he has manifested himself on earth and is waiting for a period when people are ‘ready’ to receive him.
They say his message is one of sharing.
What do you see in this? It strikes me as similar to the extraterrestrial visitors in nature and I wonder if these are related in any way.
There are also many other figures that yet others believe to be the Christ figure. Christ’s message wasn’t to go “out” looking for the Christ, but rather go “within” looking for the Christ – always the Christ within – in the heart and higher mind – listening to the still, small voice within.
His message also, with regards to whomever may claim they are from “Higher sources”, – you will know them by the fruits of the spirit which they demonstrate – not walking on water, or other physical miracles, but sincere loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, tolerance, true understanding, courage, a sense of humor, cooperation, faith, and more.
Do you think that gas prices will still be high given that we now have lots of wells producing natural gas and oil?
If by high, you mean 2013 prices, then, unfortunately, yes, the gas prices will remain high, because of the growing demand for oil and gas around the world. It is the demand, rather than the supply that influences prices, as well as how oil and gas are bought and sold on the market. Oil and its byproducts are used in the creation of hundreds of thousands of products of many kinds. Even if all the cars in the world were electric, oil would still be in high demand. We can deal with this draw on our pocketbooks on an individual level, but worldwide, we won’t see prices drop much – of course, there will be some price drops at times, but not very far drops.
We have drought conditions here in Southern California. How long do you see this lasting? Will we have an unusually hot summer this year in SoCAL? The weather has been so warm that we have early spring like conditions – plants are flowering all over the place.
I see the drought in Southern California lasting at least 5 more years. I do wish I saw better than that, but I see this. Prayer and meditation can have a healing and balancing effect on weather patterns. The more prayer, the more balancing. Praying is like rowing a boat to another location – the more people rowing, the faster one gets there. If they give up rowing before they arrive, they’ll never get there. If they only have their hands on the oars and aren’t putting their hearts into it, they’re not doing anything.
This new energy source sounds like an answered prayer for all the people of the world who are lacking resources – water, energy, etc. Will this bring about better crops and more water (through desalination – a usually expensive process)? Will it be decentralized or will it be able to be a little unit of energy for each dwelling? And will it be a lot less expensive and dangerous than nuclear energy?
Don’t misunderstand what I’m trying to mention. While the beginning of the process for bringing forth this new energy has indeed begun – and by beginning, I mean, the formulation of theories that would eventually contribute to it’s manifestation and eventual useability – the process is a long ways away. We will indeed have different energies at our disposal by the end of this century. But, obviously, they won’t come on their own.
First of all, we have many paths before us as a nation, as a planet, and as a species. Which path we take depends on our own efforts at spiritual levels, mental levels, financial levels, scientific levels, emotional levels and physical levels. We can just as easily miss the path of bringing forth this energy by the choices we make. This new energy can be put on the back burner and forgotten. This act has been done before by us humans.
Bringing it forth is not set in rock, but there will be commercial efforts to bring it forth. It also will be hidden to many during its development because of theft reasons.
Now to answer your questions. It could become an answer to our prayers. The impact can potentially bring down pollution levels including water pollution levels. It would allow the waters and air to rebalance and cleanse. This process would be several decades in the manifestation of this result.
It can be used for many purposes which will depend only on ingenuity and imagination. Right now, I see it having potential for both centralized and individual units. The individual units of generation of useable energy being portable units like gas generators are portable today. Larger units would be able to serve larger groups. There would be a need for some new type of commercial processes for those suppliers to make money from it. The demand for it would drive its manufacturing.
Nuclear energy will be with us on into the next century.
“Imagine life if we put forth no effort of any kind.
Imagine life if we put forth as much effort as possible.

Imagine life if we put forth as much effort towards prayer as possible.”

While so many of us already are aware that we have visitors from other places in space, others are not – for countless reasons. Why, then, would there be no public announcement or public presentation? The answer is – there will be – in the spring of 2050. Precisely, I’m seeing it in April and May of 2050, then stretching out in other ways through the summer.
From my research, Edgar Cayce didn’t say much specific about UFO’s, Extraterrestrials and the like happening in the future, except to say that there was regular contact and relationships with them during the Atlantean days and there would be again. During the Atlantean days, there existed a very high level of technology – some of which has been discovered but not recognized and not identified correctly. This level of technology plays a role in contact and normal relations with Extraterrestrials.
There are good reasons why there has not been a public presentation with developing regular and normal open relations. It is because we are not at their level of the technology, yet. Especially with regards to energy. Literally, there would be wars over their technology. If full openness were to happen now, it would create extreme tensions in the world over who gets their technology.
The best way to avoid this conflict is to not be fully open with the existence of UFO’s. Otherwise, the conflicts would be serious and even destructive indeed. The few sightings and rumors help to put this topic into peoples’ minds and that is a necessary first step that must happen over time.
The Descent of Technology
When humans descended into lower technological times after Atlantean times, those from other locations in space who witnessed the process, also recognized the need to withdraw from regular public human interaction. Through the thousands of years since Atlantis, there has been contact but only the most limited and only on the outskirts of experiences.
With the return and growing of the technological levels we have now, there has been more contact, entering back into the subconsciousnesses and consciousnesses of the human race, waiting until mankind once again is able to meet them without being overwhelmed and without causing chaos in our planet.
The New Energy Source
With the development of the new energy source that I’ve mentioned before, mankind will have the energy technology that will avoid the need to war over their technology. Our technology will be sufficient to provide for our planet.
So, beginning in 2045, non-public discussions and processes will begin for development of the procedures and preparations, of the following 4 years leading up to the public pronouncements and the official “Welcoming” events – all around the world (and over many months time.) As I said above, April & May, 2050, then stretching out through the summer around the planet, then winding down in the fall of 2050.
It will be both an exciting time and anxious time. There will be many who are welcoming and many that are afraid. There will be many areas of cooperation and many areas of conflict to be worked out. They will present themselves to the whole world – to all the more than 8.7 billion people on the planet at that time.
And they will be a part of our consciousnesses and paradigms from then on.
One result of this new relationship is that tens of thousands will want to go into space to visit the other “few” planets that these visitors will represent. While I currently count about 16 – 19 different species that are “touching” Earth in some form or fashion, only about 3 will open up their societies to be visited in cooperative ways. Eventually millions of humans will travel to other non-Earth places.
Not all 16-19 are above board and open. That is why the message deciphered in 2008 mentioned that humans need to be aware that not all species in space are truthful. Some hide behind fake smiles. Sound familiar? They have traits just like humans – who would have thought it. Always remember actions and behaviors represent what is within someone – whether human or not.
This year, 2012 is only 33 years away from the beginning of the process which I would equate to preparing for the Olympics in a new city – years of preparation. And only 38 years until 2050. If we compare that time range to waiting for the year 2000, it would be like if it were 1962. How many of you remember the time from 1962 to 2000? It seems like a long time to a few, but not to the rest of us. And we’ve been through a lot during those times.
I hope you can be around, but be aware that what we will be going through before 2045 and 2050 will test us in so many ways.
May 24, 2012
Send me your questions about this topic and I’ll share more.
“I’ve been coming across more and more disturbing information about the BP disaster, … I would love to hear your insights on this. ” S. Austin
While many are working on the problem even now, I “see” the current status/state continuing full on, until the end of September. This means that the rate of flow coming from the ground into the Gulf with a receptacle or not, will stay the same until the end of September / beginning of October. Then it will be dramatically decreased eventually to around 15-18% of what it is now. This rate will continue for about 2 years from now, meaning the summer of 2012. During the summer of 2012, they will succeed in stopping 99.92% of the oil that is flowing into the Gulf from the hole that it is flowing from. This will be all they ever contain. From then on, the .08% of the oil that will continue to seep into the Gulf will be considered acceptable. As the years go by, it will inch up to around 4% by 2017-2018. They will Never! stop all the oil from leaking into the Gulf from this accident until around 2028-2035. The technology does not exist to stop it from leaking. While BP is working to stop it now, after they make the shift to the .08% in the summer of 2012, it will be lost in the news as the years pass. BP simply will eventually consider it not worth any effort or expense to continue to work to stop it 100%. After 2 more decades, they will then be pushed to come back and end the leak completely.
As I always say, tremendous amounts of prayer can shorten this and help the situation.
I will add, to what I “see” about the timeline…
If we were to magically change all vehicles on the earth to electric in one day. (Impossible, but hypothetical.) This would not stop the oil companies from drilling oil. They would seek out a different market for their product. That market would be the chemical industry. Drilling would continue, but the products would be different and the end result (pollution) would be lower.
I’ll repeat what I said here before. Electric cars are the future. In the same way that computers used to be $1600-$3000 for a 386 running a 50 MB hard drive, and now you can get laptops that run 1000 times faster and store 10000 times more for a few hundred dollars, so will the prices of electric cars go down as the technology is purchased and enhanced.
The first calculator I ever saw was in 1973 or 1974. It was a basic Texas Instruments and cost $250. Now you can get one for $1. The electric car industry is the future. Few foresaw the computer industry blossoming in the last 30 years into what it is today. Few still think that the car industry will be almost all electric, but it will. It will take decades, but so did the computer industry.
The Global Warming phenomenon will continue to increase steadily until the process of a changeover to reliance upon this new energy source beginning around 2050. As this new energy source enters into our world and is integrated into our societies, the Global Warming phenomenon will slow it’s increase, and then start diminishing to the point that the temperatures will cool, and there will be what could easily be considered a normalizing of temperatures. Those global “symptoms” of the warming process will slowly reverse and it will take from 50-70 years for the different symptoms to return to what could be considered normal, (2120-2150) (Added 11/2/05)
The drive to obtain alternative energy sources has been only a gradual pursuit in our lifetime. The dependence on oil has been “held onto” by the general populace. Here in the U.S., there will be a growing determination in a subsection of the population to look for and find alternative energy sources. This group’s efforts will become noticed as a growing economic market in the next decade (2010-2020) . This growing group will help stimulate the demand for alternative energy sources and help create a market which manufacturers will respond to. Around 2015 is when we will see a “stepped-up” level of availability of alternatives energy sources as compared to today’s availability. Although not on a mass scale, but rather on an individual fringe scale, we’ll see the beginnings with respect to alternative energy sources for the home (2013-2014), and a few workplaces (2012-2013). Some pursue this now, but we’ll see the demand step-up a level and both demand and supply will follow this stepped-up level on into the next decades. Hybrid cars will take their place in U.S. society and by 2012, will be about 10% of all the new cars sold. By 2015-2018, hybrid cars will be about 15-20% of all the cars on the road. A smaller “real” hybrid truck will emerge (testing the market demand) by 2008-2009. (Added 11/16/05)
