Mysterious triangle looking like a cloaked craft appears in the sky over Kansas City, Missouri, Miami, Florida and Canada
This huge triangle was observed in the sky over Kansas City, Missouri, then on August 8, 2018, while driving south along the I-35 highway. What could this be? The strange shape in the clouds was observed for 3 minutes by the eyewitness.
As he drove out of the highway to the north, the mysterious shadow (of an unidentified flying object?) also disappeared behind the trees on the horizon.
This video of the strange sky phenomenon was submitted by the witness: Video Player 00:00

Walmart to raise minimum age for all gun sales to 21
Walmart is raising the minimum age to purchase all firearms and ammunition to 21, the company announced on Wednesday. The company is also going to remove any toys and items that resemble assault-style rifles from their website. Here is the full statement by the company: In light of recent events, we’ve taken an opportunity to review our policy on firearm sales. Going forward, we are raising the age restriction for purchase of firearms and ammunition to 21 years of age. We will update our processes as quickly as possible to implement this change.

In 2015, Walmart ended sales of modern sporting rifles, including the AR-15. We also do not sell handguns, except in Alaska where we feel we should continue to offer them to our customers. Additionally, we do not sell bump stocks, high-capacity magazines and similar accessories. We have a process to monitor our eCommerce marketplace and ensure our policies are applied. We take seriously our …

Warmer Arctic temperatures are the ‘new normal,’ report finds
Arctic temperatures are continuing to rise while sea ice declines, a new report has found, with the region showing no sign of returning to its “reliably frozen” state. The report, sponsored by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), shows that in 2017 a warming trend in the Arctic continued, resulting in higher surface and water temperatures and melting sea ice. Some 85 researchers from a dozen countries contributed to the Arctic Report Card, now in its 12th year. “While 2017 saw fewer records shattered than in 2016, the Arctic shows no sign of returning to the reliably frozen region it was decades ago. Arctic temperatures continue to increase at double the rate of the global temperature increase,” a NOAA news release on the report said. The report card indicates that this may be the “new normal” for the region. Historical data show the current observed rate of sea ice decline and warming temperatures…

The trend continues, 2017 one of the hottest years on record
2017 was once again one of the hottest years on record, ranked as the second-warmest by NASA and third-warmest by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The findings “continue the planet’s long-term warming trend,” according to NASA. A trend that is driven predominately by human activity through carbon dioxide emissions. Temperature records for the planet, monitored independently by both agencies, go back to 1880. The announcement came at a joint press conference on Thursday in Washington. The hottest year on record remains 2016, while 2015 ranks second according to NOAA and third by NASA, which means the top three years have been the most recent three. Though 2017 was slightly cooler on average compared to 2016. the trend towards a warmer planet has never been clearer. The six hottest years have all occurred since 2010 and 17 of the 18 hottest years on record have occurred since 2001. According to NASA, the gl…

NASA releases time-lapse of the Disappearing Arctic Polar Ice Cap

NASA posted this video to YouTube with this description, “Arctic sea ice has not only been shrinking in surface area in recent years, it’s becoming younger and thinner as well. In this animation, where the ice cover almost looks gelatinous as it pulses through the seasons, cryospheric scientist Dr. Walt Meier of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center describes how the sea ice has undergone fundamental changes during the era of satellite measurements.” 2017 was once again one of the hottest years on record, ranked as the second-warmest by NASA and third-warmest by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The findings “continue the planet’s long-term warming trend,” according to NASA. A trend that is driven predominately by human activity through carbon dioxide emissions.

Climate Chaos Continues Europe drops to -27 deg C (-17 deg F)
At least eight people have died in ice-cold weather over the weekend in Poland, officials say. The deaths bring the total number who have died due to the cold since November to 48.
Temperatures sank to -20C in some places. The frosty conditions are set to continue, and authorities have called on citizens to help the elderly and homeless, who are particularly vulnerable in winter.

Meanwhile, in Moscow temperatures have dropped to this winter's low despite the approaching spring. The Meteorological Office said on Monday the mercury in the Russian capital dropped to nearly -20C on Sunday night, the coldest night this winter.
Meteorologists are forecasting unusually low temperatures for early March. Roman Vilfand, chief of the Russian Meteorological Office, told the Interfax news agency that Muscovites should brace themselves for the frosty weather in early March and could only "count on the warmth of the soul," not highe…

Bright fireball over Antofagasta, Chile
A bright was seen and recorded flying across the night sky over Antofagasta, Chile at 23:51 UTC (20:30 local time) on February 25, 2018. The event lasted several seconds before the object disintegrated. In cooperation with Exoss, the American Meteor Society (AMS) received 15 reports from Antofagasta, Arica and Parinacota, and Tarapaca. There are no reports of a sound associated with this event.

Energy from Space The Shift Has Begun
Earth and Sun's fields are weakening and we're exiting the magnetic dust cloud. At the same time, our three shields against energy from space are disappearing, we are showing increased vulnerability to space weather from our sun, and cosmic rays are already exceeding expectations. The magnetic protection stops the cosmic connection to earthquakes, volcanoes, and storms from getting worse... Reserve 68 minutes for the following presentation and press play: It is undeniable that the general pole shift and field weakening have presented symptomatically of a reversal or significant excursion, and the only point both ESA/SWARM and MIT use to quell fear is that they believe it will take 1000s of years. The math of losing 5% per decade, and the potential for fast reversals, cast a shadow on such aspersions of safety. Don't be scared, be prepared and aware.

'Really Extreme' Global Weather Event Leaves Scientists Worried
Climate scientists are used to seeing the range of weather extremes stretched by global warming but few episodes appear as remarkable as this week's unusual heat over the Arctic. Zack Labe, a researcher at the University of California at Irvine, said average daily temperature above the northern latitude of 80 degrees has broken away from any previous recordings in the past 60 years.
"To have zero degrees at the North Pole in February - it's just wrong," said Amelie Meyer, a researcher of ice-ocean interactions with the Norwegian Polar Institute. "It's quite worrying." The so-called Polar Vortex - a zone of persistent low-pressure that typically keeps high-latitude cold air separate from regions further south - has been weakening for decades. In this instance, "a massive jet of warm air" is penetrating north, sending a cold burst southwards, said Dr. Meyer, who has relocate…
