90 percent of the world’s fisheries facing collapse

May 1, 2017

http://www.innovationtoronto.com/2017/04/overfishing-is-depleting-oceans-across-the-globe-with-90-percent-of-the-worlds-fisheries-fully-exploited-or-facing-collapse/

Once upon a time, the seas teemed with mackerel, squid and sardines, and life was good. But now, on opposite sides of the globe, sun-creased fishermen lament as they reel in their nearly empty nets.

“Your net would be so full of fish, you could barely heave it onto the boat,” said Mamadou So, 52, a fisherman in Senegal, gesturing to the meager assortment of tiny fish flapping in his wooden canoe.

A world away in eastern China, Zhu Delong, 75, also shook his head as his net dredged up a disappointing array of pinkie-size shrimp and fledgling yellow croakers. “When I was a kid, you could cast a line out your back door and hook huge yellow croakers,” he said. “Now the sea is empty.”

Overfishing is depleting oceans across the globe, with 90 percent of the world’s fisheries fully exploited or facing collapse, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. From Russian king crab fishermen in the west Bering Sea to Mexican ships that poach red snapper off the coast of Florida, unsustainable fishing practices threaten the well-being of millions of people in the developing world who depend on the sea for income and food, experts say.

But China, with its enormous population, growing wealth to buy seafood and the world’s largest fleet of deep-sea fishing vessels, is having an outsize impact on the globe’s oceans.

Having depleted the seas close to home, Chinese fishermen are sailing farther to exploit the waters of other countries, their journeys often subsidized by a government more concerned with domestic unemployment and food security than the health of the world’s oceans and the countries that depend on them.

Increasingly, China’s growing armada of distant-water fishing vessels is heading to the waters of West Africa, drawn by corruption and weak enforcement by local governments. West Africa, experts say, now provides the vast majority of the fish caught by China’s distant-water fleet. And by some estimates, as many as two-thirds of those boats engage in fishing that contravenes international or national laws.

China’s distant-water fishing fleet has grown to nearly 2,600 vessels (the United States has fewer than one-tenth as many), with 400 boats coming into service between 2014 and 2016 alone. Most of the Chinese ships are so large that they scoop up as many fish in one week as Senegalese boats catch in a year, costing West African economies $2 billion a year, according to a new study published by the journal Frontiers in Marine Science.

GOTT on Overpopulation

March 5, 2017

GOTT Ch. 4, line 5

5) And as you create descendants, it shall be done in the measure of insight (rationality) so that the standard measure of the number of all peoples (humankind) does not get out of control in a very bad wise and result in immoderateness (overpopulation) and the world and its weathers, the appearance (nature) and all life on Earth do not suffer great and lasting damage (destruction of the environment/destruction of the climate/extinction of forms of life/wars/crimes, etc.); therefore, the recommendation of insight (rationality) and of control over extent is given for obedience (following) so that no calamity may come over you and your world; consequently, it is recommended that you keep yourselves within bounds (limits) and manage (monitor) the standard measure of the number of all peoples and that you undertake (carry out) a measurement (census) every certain number of years so that the measure of all inhabitants of Earth does not become too great and remains within the number of the maintainable (supportable) without leading to harm (529 million).

Proof that Climate Change Doubters are 100% WRONG

June 19, 2015

A small excerpt from contact report 489 out of 602 and counting…

Billy
…Actually I have something which still requires an explanation from your side. Christian Frehner brought me a question from Michael Horn and Professor James Deardorff regarding the current CO2 content of the terrestrial atmosphere.
But since I was not quite sure in regard to an answer, I asked Florena on February 25th for an explanation.
Both obviously thought that the current content is not yet dangerous and that it also does not climb so quickly.
Besides that, they spoke of a 4 percent CO2 content, which is not, however, what was mentioned in our conversation of October 14th last year in regard to CO2.
Florena answered my question by quoting the exact current content as 0.046 percent.
This is in contrast to the claims of the terrestrial scientists who, with inexact calculations, would only calculate a value of 0.039 percent.
I assume, concerning that, that a misunderstanding probably exists with the two and they took the terrestrial scientists’ lower value as the starting point and that this is not yet dangerous and for which reason it is also not to be evaluated as grave.
However, how they arrived at 4 percent is a puzzle to me because neither of us mentioned this number in our conversation.
What is to be said about that?
Ptaah
It is correct that the current CO2 content on the Earth amounts to 0.046 percent, respectively 460 ppm [parts per million] which is truly quite a lot more than the terrestrial scientists register with their inadequate apparatuses.
This CO2 content of 0.046 percent is not yet very grave for the life forms, but, with humans who are more susceptible than others regarding CO2, it leads to very frequent migraines, with nausea and dizziness.
But, among diverse other factors, the molecule also strongly influences the climate and therefore contributes to climate change.
The content of 460 ppm is therefore not harmless. Instead, it has already, for a long time, shown certain effects with humans who are susceptible to it, as it also has in regard to climate change, through which natural catastrophes take the lives of many humans.
The named 0.046 percentage of CO2 impregnates the atmosphere whereby however this says nothing about the CO2 which has accumulated and continues to accumulate in the soil and in the oceans and other bodies of water, and which is freed, by and by, as a result of various processes and also enters the atmosphere this way.
It also says nothing about how the CO2 damages all seas and other bodies of water in that it acidifies them.
The gas will be poisonous for the humans when, in the air, it reaches a content of approximately one percent which will then already lead generally to headaches and chronic tiredness.
It has an absolutely deadly effect when it reaches a content of 8 percent in the air.
Naturally the entire thing still corresponds to a longer process and will not take effect overnight, but the whole thing will not be stopped if the Earth humans proceed with their uncontrollable reproduction and continue to produce the gas in excessive amounts as they have until now.
As a result of everything which is coming in the future, factors can come about which allow the CO2 content to suddenly and rapidly increase, especially when the molecules, which have accumulated and continue to accumulate in the soil and in the oceans, escape into the air as a result of some sort of circumstances and become dangerous for all breathing beings.
That is certainly not the case yet and also one cannot expect it to be the case very quickly, but to think that the CO2 content of 460 ppm is not dangerous corresponds to an erroneous assumption because that is already alarmingly high, because, namely, as a result of the molecule, the climate is strongly influenced in a negative way and causes certain human beings health difficulties, with migraines, nausea and dizziness.
Around 150 years ago the CO2 content in the atmosphere amounted to 0.028 percent, and shortly before industrialisation the content of CO2 on the Earth amounted to 187 ppm. Subsequently the content has therefore climbed by a disturbing 273 ppm.
The terrestrial atmosphere has always contained CO2 in small amounts, but the Earth humans have unfortunately contributed very much to the strong increase of the gas content, and indeed as a result of the irresponsible, excessive burning of fossil fuels such as crude oil, natural gas and coal, as well as as a result of diverse other natural and chemically produced substances.
Means of transport, such as aircraft, automobiles, tractors, other motor vehicles and all kinds of work machines as well as ships, which are powered by combustion engines, also contribute in a big way to the entire evil.
To add to that are also power stations and factories which are powered in some way with gas or coal.
Also the logging – and clearing by means of fire – of the rain forests, as well as other clearing of forests around the world and the destruction and building-over of riverside forests and fertile fields for residential buildings and factories, and so forth, contributed and further contributes to the increasing CO2 content.
Billy
But now all the clever ones and know-it-alls who play everything down again, will come again.
That will, unfortunately, really not be avoidable.
Ptaah
That will with certainty be so, just as it will that everything will be described as worse than it, in and of itself, already is.

AA Metatron: Sacred Activation of the Green Ray & Emerald Flame

Sacred Activation of the Green Ray & Emerald Flame

Greetings Masters, I am Metatron Lord of Light and I greet each of you in a vector of unconditional love as you read these words.

We joyously share with you the coming ‘full activation’ of the Green Ray & Sacred Emerald Flame into the Ascended Earth. Masters, this is a long awaited event, one promised eons ago in an enlightened epoch. In a luminous time in which the Earth carried greater dimensional access and you communicated clearly & blissfully with all Kingdoms of the Earth. An illuminated period in which you had the ability to lucidly interact & fully communicate with all elements and kingdoms of the Earth. It was the time of the full spectrum of the Emerald Dimension….and it is returning!

Many of you are called again to anchor the activation of this emerald evolution. It is nigh and will be marked by an extraordinary trine & cometized energy, carrying expansive codes. Codes you have waited eons to receive, it is a soul promise and sacred contract for many. It is part of the new beginning, of the new perception & attributes available to you.

The Green Ray Infinity-Gate Activation

The New Earth has expanded into 12 dimensions, and you now have 12 chakras directly connected to each primary dimension and 20 chakras connecting to the intra sub-dimensional fields within the spectrums of the Omni-Earth.

You are evolving into a greater consciousness. And so it is logical to understand that this encompasses all kingdoms of the earth. The basic expansion of the Planetary Ascension also invokes humanities frequencial expansion, including the addendum of all Earth-Kingdoms into your consciousness field. It is a paradigm shift. It will offer you the ability to connect lucidly with the all consciousness of and within Gaia. It is a requisite step toward your integral identity as part of and as co creators of the Earth.

Your dimensional access increased with the planetary Ascension through your chakras. So it is that the initial Sacred Codes of each ‘new’ chakra be received and installed beginning in 2013, Year One of the New Earth. It is done through the Green-Ray activation.

In August the Green Ray Infinity Portal occurs in the aperture activation of the Emerald Flame. The primary opening apex is from August 12-21, 2013.

And we tell you the 4th, 8th & 9th dimensions are formulated through and with the Emerald-Ray. The 8th & 9th dimensions will begin completing receival of the Geo-Codes of Thoth, through the aperture of the Emerald Flame Activation.

It initiates in the 8th month of 2013 and completes in the 9th month on the (September) Equinox. The apexial phase of the Green Ray Activation begins with the Perseids Meteor influx, and culminates on the full moon of August 20th. (Understand that astrological, astronomical events are energy shift catalysts, and in the New Earth, these are the base mechanisms of the new paradigm formation.)

The Emerald Flame

The Emerald Flame is a vibratory essence that is Healing & Nurturing, and by receiving the Codes of the Green Ray Activation, the 8th and 9th Chakric Fields will expand into more lucid reception and perception from and into the 8th and 9th Dimension in the Physio Realm, and into the 16th-18th Chakric sensories of the etheric level within the 13-20-33 resonance of the crystalline Mer-Ka-Na Field.

Accordingly humanity can receive these codes as they complete the portal downloads of the Green Ray Infinity (8) Portal. These codes are synergized into the 8th & 9th Physio-Chakras, through the guidance of Archangel Raphael. The Emerald Flame is the higher merging of your consciousness with that of the Ascended Earth.

As you become more settled into the higher frequencies of the New Earth, it is incumbent upon you to calibrate and fine-tune to the expanded Chakra Alignments of the Crystalline Lite Body, the Mer-Ka-Na. Naturally the Earth is adjusting her resonance to refashion the chakric centers of the planet to receive and distribute the energies for humanity’s expansion.

Complexities of the New Expansive Green Ray

The Green Ray is a very complex and widely employed energy. Within its spectral bands are the telluric & etheric manifestations of that termed the Plant Kingdom, and thus the higher manifestations of the Devic Fae projections of the Plant consciousness. The benevolent of the Fae include the conscious forms of Faeries, the Elfin & ‘Greenman’.

The most conscious of the Plant Kingdom are Trees, and these have been recognized as healers and Spiritual Councils by more aware societies throughout the ages, particularly in LeMuria and the Golden Age of Atlantis. Many of you experienced life on the planet in the pre-duality firmament as these beings, as the Devic projections of the Kingdoms of Earth in luminous form. This was enabled by the crystalline resonance of that phase and this resonant frequencial lensis being activated in the planetary ascension through the Green Ray Activation

Trees are taking on an even more conscious role and a greater communicative & healing interaction with humanity in the New Earth. They have been virtually unrecognized for millennia in terms of their true consciousness. In the New-Earth Activation of the Green Ray you will regain the ability to more lucidly communicate with Tree Beings and receive not only the healing they offer, but their Spiritual Council as well.

With this comes an increased responsibility for protecting Trees.

As in all forms of life, botanical life (especially the arboreal) have a hierarchy of consciousness. The highest of these are the Sequoia (Redwood & Sequoia), followed by the Oak, and Yew. There are of course many others and many other categories. Certain psychoactive plants help you expand and thus serve as conscious spiritual allies in a different format than Trees. Certain trees & plants serve you as food sources. These you acknowledge as commodities, but not as conscious beings. You plant, grow, protect and harvest the ones that provide food, fiber and wood, but you do not as a species truly recognize the forests (including the rainforests) beyond providers of oxygen, and you have not resolved the issue of preserving them for posterity.

Sequoia are unique in their ability to self clone and be externally cloned. In this process, original energies, original records are retained. This is a unique attribute of the conscious Sequoia. It is why the Archangels have called on David Milarch to clone the Sequoia and Redwood. It is why we have directed the channel to gather in the most sacred area of the Giant Sequoia, and why many of you are called to gather and receive the codes in a hallowed space.

We tell you the Sequoia energies and records retained in their conscious coherent fields extend back 144 million years. No other botanical or biological lives on the physical realm of the planet have such an attribute, and it is extremely important.

Sequoias are the primary receivers are the ‘Green Ray Activation’ in its major goal of the re-activation and enhanced role of Trees in the New Earth. They call to you. They call to the LeMurians to re-establish the recognition of their benevolent council. They call for all humans to allow them to assist, to acknowledge their loving service. It is why they have remained in the third dimension that would otherwise destroy them. Answer their call, and indeed you will be rewarded exponentially!

The Green Ray & Emerald Flame

Take time to be among ancient trees during the Infinity Gate aperture of the Emerald Flame. The ancient trees, the grand trees carry a far greater role in this activation than you realize. The Sequoia are Master Beings, record keepers, the crystals of the plant kingdom. These trees truly are portals. This is absolutely true. These enormous trees convert rain and ground water to coded water crystals. Marcel Vogel and Dr Emoto have shown you that water is conscious and capable of crystal patterning. The Sequoia, more than any other tree, absorb massive amounts of water and through their unique photosynthesis process, store solar energy in theta-coherency. Because of this extremely unique high frequency, higher dimensional beings, angelics are able to manifest around the portaline energy of the Sequoia.

The Sequoia are multi-dimensional gateways and exude a cascading field of incredible energy around them. This energy is both physical and etheric in frequencial- dimensional spectrum. The Sequoia are receivers of sacred energy codes. They stabilize and heal the human body physical and human emotional field. The energy they emit heals and seals the human aura, enabling the aura to carry optimal circuitry to enable entry into the Mer-Ka-Na state and absolutely facilitates lucid activation of the pineal crystal. The LeMurians knew this. They revered and honored the Sequoia and Redwood. Many of you were among them, and this reawakening, the Green Ray Activation is a long awaited expansion. Many of you are called to anchor it, to receive the codes of the Emerald Flame and enter a realm of unimaginable peace and communication with all aspects of Gaia, and the Master Trees that serve you.

I am Metatron and we share with you these Truths.

And so it is …And it is so… You are Beloved.
