Butterfly Populations are Booming and Burgeoning Around the Globe in 2017

January 23, 2017 – Norfolk, VA – Favourable forecast for butterfly count

Fifty-five. That’s the record number of butterfly species spotted during the annual Long Point Butterfly Count.

Will 2017 be the year this mark is surpassed? So far, the outlook is promising.

I’ve already been seeing a lot of monarchs and swallowtails,” said Adam Timpf, compiler for the Long Point count. But, those observations won’t necessarily translate into elevated tallies on count day

 

February 28, 2017 – Pacific Grove’s monarch butterfly count was up from last year

While P.G.’s count came in at 17,000, Nick Stong, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History’s education manager said the figure actually reflects a number of anywhere between 13,500 and 20,400 (a 20 percent margin error).

“Taking that into account, as well as the dynamic nature of monarch overwintering behavior, it would be difficult to draw any conclusions regarding the overall population by simply looking at these numbers,” said Stong, who noted that the season’s overall pattern was different than years past because of the large number (39,753) that were observed overwintering at a private site in Big Sur where only 5,000 were counted last year.

Still, Stong was happy with the result.

Butterfly expert Victor DeMasi, of Redding, gave an outdoor discussion …. the annual national butterfly count on Saturday morning, July 1, 2017, in … more …. “It’s been a particularly good year for a number of butterflies,” said Nicole Palffy-Muhoray, the museum assistant at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, which has studied Connecticut’s butterflies for decades.
She quickly cautioned that one year doesn’t indicate a trend and at least ten years of data was needed to determine if a trend exists.

Palffy-Muhoray said there may have been a few good years in a row but she is hesitant to say the species are coming back because there are so many factors involved.

    This year was a banner year for bugs and birds. August was one of the coolest I’ve seen in my half century in Southern Michigan.
    Yet, when I point out the fact, blank stares mostly. Then I explain, we breathe carbon, are made of carbon (energy actually, but that’s another mind blower for pajama people), and shockingly, excess carbon can be “fixed” with plants.
    According to wildlife counts, already is being taken care of.

    We are carbon beings on a carbon planet, we are careening towards 8 billion humans plus other beings that all require food.
    Limiting carbon from a carbon based planet that has an existing system of regulation – plants – is the most blatant warping of generally accepted science running right now. Chemicals and energetic pollution is our true enemy, simple orgone devices, and our intents, fight one.
    I’m now trying to boost the chemists and their companies. While watching a chemtrail form the other day, I began sending intense love to the pilot, his bosses, those behind it, then to Gaia and her sky.
    It disappeared within minutes. The powers we hold are so much deeper, more magical, than we believe. My spirit/angels tell me, show me, all the time.

      Global Warming is just one of the Big Lies (Hitler’s term, though probably invented by his ‘cellmate, Rudolf Hesse) that the corporate order manages to incorporate into popular culture, as is the notion that ‘humanity is a virus.’ I remember when the Rockefeller Foundation rolled out environmentalism as a politico/religious movement quite suddenly in the mid 70s, using former Vietnam War protestors and hippies as the first eager, unquestioning proselytes. Even though it would be ten more years before I read my first conspiracy book I had been shocked by the engineered nature of that militant movement.

      Using the mind to affect clouds is fun for some and was ridiculed in the movie, Men Who Stare At Goats. Chemtrails are seeded clouds, of course, which is why they don’t come down to the ground. I sometimes wonder whether people would be afraid of chemtrail-seeded clouds if not for the massive volume of compelling fear porn on the web about chemtrails. I rarely encounter people who actually witnessed chemtrails when they were sickening untold millions of people between 1998 and 2003, before several thousand, mostly home-made, orgonite cloudbusters quietly destroyed that agenda. I also wonder how much real value these seeded clouds have, psychologically–perhaps very little.

      The entire human race can live comfortably in Texas right now, so maybe it’s too soon to worry about overpopulation. It may never be to soon to discuss colonizing other planets, though. I’ve seen huge antigravity craft, up close, that presumably belong to the disgusting air force so it’s a moot point to me.

      It might be a comfort for people who worry about overpopulation to travel though some of hte world’s profoundly vast and desolate regions for some assurance that we’re not crowding each other, even in China. Orgonite is turning several of these deserts into pastures, literally.

    Katharine, Teresa, thanks for these great additions! By all means, keep ’em coming, please.

    Teresa, that’s remarkable, in that I posted something virtually identical on this forum in 2008, I believe it was. I was driving home from work, and the spraying was extreme and blatant, and a spray plane was going right over top of me. So I boosted it, visualized the cockpit filling up with the bright light of highest Love energy. And the plane disappeared. I know Don commented on the thread at the time, perhaps he or another recalls the post. Science! Data points.

    The best opinion I ever read about chemtrails was from Miles Mathis: Chemtrails are outright pollution! If they can make us or the environment sick better for the world odor, but their main objective is to get rid of industrial waste that would otherwise cost a lot to safely dispose. Not unlike what they do with the fluoride compounds that are tossed in the public water supplies. They might have some use in limited weather control and etheric warfare by suddenly releasing truckloads of DOR over an area, but that’s it. Not a deadly depopulation weapon.

    I think it’s possible they may have intended the chemtrails to help weed out the people with weaker genes since so many were getting so sick until the cloudbusters and orgonite spread all over and eugenics is such an obvious part of their plan. Obviously the death towers backfired on them because of orgonite, perhaps the chemtrails would have been more effective at killing us had orgonite cloudbusters not been invented. Thankfully they were, so I guess we will never know. I agree though that most sights screaming the loudest about chemtrails are fear porn and disinformation sights controlled by the new world odor and are not to be trusted.

    And I do agree that they are also a primary means for getting rid of industrial waste, but why spray it in an atomized aerosol if not for the purpose of making us sick. I think they were killing two birds with one stone by spraying the waste so to speak.
