    Default UV light at dangerous levels causing serious sunburn

    The UV-b is way off the charts at the moment and has caused serious sunburn and sunstroke as early as may! I've been following a Youtube channel called MrMBB333 hes very good knows his stuff and he's got 4 others with UV meters going out and taking readings across US. Also shows examples of Sun damage to signs,siding on houses numberplates etc.

    Normal reading 3-4, 7-8 is high and dangerous, we are getting readings up to 12-13 which is cancerous and causes serious burns. Also effects plants,insects etc... Has anyone seen any flies this year because I haven't and its nearly June...wtf is happening?

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤

    I've seen roadsigns here in Glastonbury,UK south facing that have the same sun damage...ie total bleaching of colour. Also my 13 yr old daughter has had sunstroke twice in April and May!!!

    Here I have an ants invasion in the house, but nothing else, but it has been rather cold and extremely wet, we had never seen so much inundations everywhere, highway closed because of rising rivers, etc.

    Thank you Running Dear for responding. That vid you posted is also by MrMBB333. I saw it a while back and it made me realise the lack of flies is evident here in Britain too. Last year the insect and bird populations seemed to be reduced...now the flies are gone completely. Small bird numbers are well down as well
    The question is, Is it related to the extremely high UV-B levels we are all experiencing? Burning all plants and animals exposed and damaging signs etc...

    That’s amazing about the stop signs and cans. (added below)

    A few weeks ago I was out in the sun for a short time and got a sunburn. I thought it was because it was early in the season. It was hotter sun than I recall.

    It’s a little early in the season for a lot of flies. What I’ve noticed is how the knat population was almost nonexistent. Usually they’re out in droves by May 1st and gone by the end of the month. It may be because it’s been a cool, chemtrail, rainy spring.

    This video is 1.5 years old and alarming, it seem UVC levels are off the charts as well.

    I tend to tan easily and for the last 2 years I have been burning and if I go without sunscreen I go from Lilly white in April to nearly milk chocolate brown by July. Bit disconcerting as my mother who is Irish is the colour of a white sheet

    Published on Oct 16, 2015

    Deadly Ultraviolet sun rays have increased, by 500% to 7000%, in only 13 years. The high UV explains why the whole planet is dying. This video shows measurements of sunlight, and proof of the increase in deadly UV.
    Chemtrails, and Ionospheric Heaters, are blasting holes in the protective Ozone Layer, hundreds of times, every day!

    In 2002, the ratio of dangerous UVB to "normal" UVA was LESS THAN ONE PERCENT (0.6%). Since then, the UVB has increased to a possible 42%, as shown in the video. This explains the rapid extinction of plants and animals, all over the planet.

    The sun has few. if any, spots these days. Does that contribute to more UV? Perhaps the chemtrails, and ionospheric heaters are the cause. People are tampering with the weather all over the globe. We spent three days in Dubai this April, and it rained all three days. This is nowhere near normal for that desert city, but the UAE was spraying chemicals for rain and got it.

    I saw a fly in Barcelona May 6th. Flies are rare here in Cuenca, Ecuador, at 8,300 feet above sea level. The birds here seem as plentiful as usual. I started wearing a hat last year because the sun is strong and I have no hair on top. :-) When I was walking in the desert in Jordan last month I wore a long-sleeved cotton shirt and a white straw hat. I was hot, but did not seem any hotter than in my hiking days in the Grand Canyon thirty years ago.

    I do not know if you knew guys but the white race is the most mutagenic race. Our genes are less resistant to the environment and we mutate more easily - which is not a good thing since mutations are more often negative and damaging than positive and enhancing.

    Much much more UV also means more genetic mutations.

    But at this level, everyone and everything will nevertheless be affected, independent of races or kind (animals and humans)

    Why would we be destroying our planet? THis is the most unintelligent thing around. Sometimes I Wonder in two ways:

    1. The planet is going through a natural cycle where most life is destroyed = and we are not being told to avoid mass hysteria on one hand, and allow for the brake away civilisation to finalise their exit, while covering our skys to delay the complete destruction, therefore protecting us for a while

    2. They - our elected and non elected overseers - are spraying the sky accelerating the destruction because we are real tough to eradicate, for which reason, I would not know, or are going nuts not knowing what to do and will try anything.

    3. An alien race needs a hotter more desert like planet and are proceeding.

    My bet: we are going through a planet natural cycle and we have reaaaally stupid hidden brake away civilisation trying to extend our survival (for their needs) while in fact destroying the planet. The worst part is that if we were pulling altogether, knowing the truth, putting all our brains and heart abilities together, to find out what to do, we would probably all live - our abilities has reached that level of knowledge. But I am talking of heart abilities, they have cut off their hearts altogether, how could they understand where evolution snd life stands.

    Re flies - maybe they all came over here to Germany!

    We have no shortage of flies here especially cluster/stall flies. Our garden was literally covered in them 2 weeks ago - thousands of them. The cows in the back field are being pestered by flies every day too, poor things.

    Lots of other blue bottles and other flying insects too. Bees and bumble bees are plenty at the moment which is wonderful to see.

    Good to be able to report some positive news although the cluster flies were a real problem for over a month.

    p.s. I have wondered for a long time whether the increase in intensity of the sun's rays is partly due to the hole in the ozone layer.

    Some may remember how prominently the ozone layer hole was reported on at the end of the 80's/beginning of the 90's and then nothing...

    Last year a friend who works pruning apple trees was telling me that they have been seeing sunburn on fruit and leaves here in Germany. Not sure if that is something new or not but I never noticed or heard of sunburn on plants in western europe before.

    Thanks for this. I live at 9,000ft near the equator, so this really is a red flag reminder for me. Periodically I venture into the even higher mountains here (13,000 ft plus), choosing sunny days if I can. (There's a ton of spectacular photos on this thread, for newer members. Enjoy.)

    Maybe I need to increase the strength of my sunblock — a lot.

    Very interesting! Thanks for sharing, Thedood.
    Over the past four weeks I actually got sunburned quite badly three or four times after being out in the garden for only a few hours doing some minor gardening. Granted, I forgot to put on sunblock, which was stupid of me, but I used to never get sunburned this easily, especially not in April-May, so I just didn't really think about it.

    Yesterday I was playing football with my nephew out in the field for maybe an hour max, and when we got home my nose and forehead were bright red. And still are today. I just couldn't believe it!
    As a kid I was able to stay out in the sun for hours on end without getting sunburned but getting extremely tanned instead. Whereas right now it seems I can't be out in the sun for even an hour without getting badly sunburned.

    Higher UV levels would certainly explain that.

    I'm in charge of the survival in my family, and males are in charge of security. I've got a project I'm starting this summer that will be cheap to build and evidently lasts centuries, if done correctly. If you can't go too far below ground, then you must build a "mountain-type" cement structure connected to the earth in case of tornadoes, and sturdy enough to sustain bombardment of debrie flying from explosions and or volcanic dust. Now this isn't a sure fire way of survival, if the earth opens up and swallows you, but... you can seal yourself up with a ventilation pipe leading out, hundreds of feet away from the shelter and store goods in it because the earth temp stays at 70. The adobe housing and natural earth walls combined with cement and water proofing, can be a God send in tough times of insecurity. Water resources can be recycled and a solar array can power since this sun's rays/or 2 sun's rays are hitting the planet at this time. I really believe it's a orbital celestial natural time released spiritual time of alignment, where all the planets are hit with the power of the "golden age of sun." Could be wrong, but why take that chance. If this is true, then the reason for robots that can work in the suns or extreme cold from pole shift, and or take on "night shift" for workers where they won't be damaged or ravaged by cancer working above ground. Now this shelter, must have grow areas for flourecent light to grow plants and a couple of bee hives and also wild flowers growing for pollination. These insects are life givers to the soils and plants and therefore humans/us. WE must ensure they have a safe haven when we protect our families and friends with this advise. God help us all with the wisdome and guidance needed to be the remnant when this too shall pass.

    You know those sacks of sand or earth they use to stop flood waters? Well make them high enough to mound and cement, you can even double the sandbags on the wall to make the wall very thick, protecting you from bullets or criminals. I've go to think serious survival, because this is serious. Now the power source and connections, must be in the upper levels closest to satelite ranges. If our ancestors/Native aboriginal tribes can survive with mound homes, then we must heed their advise. Lava of course is another thing to consider, but for the immediate shelter, I believe this can't be beat and the dirt from the hole you dig, can be recycled to build the walls/structures connecting each other. Cover it with soil and plant while you can, but don't expect those suns not to scorch, ergo the in home green house farms. Recycled water towers also be sure to save some earthworms that fertilize the plants with their waste. pebbles, sand, heph filters and rubber bands, hose washers and little things should be stored in there to keep water clean when recycling it. Do not drink it, use it for the plants. if you're able to get ac going, would be good to recycle the water/moisture in the air, like they did in the Mars movie. Have some plastic to catch the water condensation, store bleach also for sanitizing.

    Default Re: UV light at dangerous levels causing serious sunburn

    I remember last fall a bunch of guys standing around my welding shop with some of the farmers and we were all saying how hot the sun was and that on some days his guys couldn't work outside the full day due to the sun being hotter. The UV intensity may be the missing link to that equation.

    The UV-b is way off the charts at the moment and has caused serious sunburn and sunstroke as early as May!
    Thanks for this. I live at 9,000ft near the equator, so this really is a red flag reminder for me. Periodically I venture into the even higher mountains here (13,000 ft plus), choosing sunny days if I can. (There's a ton of spectacular photos on this thread, for newer members. Enjoy.)

    Maybe I need to increase the strength of my sunblock — a lot.
    I've been using oversized high grade glass based sunglasses since the first Serengeti sunglasses became available.

    Folks, protect your eyes. high grade and oversized sunglasses are not an option. They are necessary. Oversized lenses as your peripheral eyesight can be damaged by stylish small sunglasses. Your pupils will open up too much and the raw light comes in on the sides of the lenses. Small lenses are pretty well worse than no sunglasses at all. Trying to be stylish can cost you your eyesight as you grow older.

    The teardrop shaped 'aviator' style came about as it is purely a function issue. A very real one.

    Has anyone seen any flies this year because I haven't and its nearly June...
    Good point! Neither have I. My Venus fly traps are looking somewhat forlorn...

    I remember a previous Avalon thread which I did not pay too much attention to at the time which talks about the "deluge solaire" and the return of "Victor" after 11 years...

    Yep!



    I still have that same pair of glacier-quality glasses. (Those photos were taken in Norway in 2004. At indoor light levels, they're like blackouts.) They're almost impossible to find, now.

    I'm adding this in as there may be a connection:

    NASA Space Probes Have Detected a Human-Made Barrier Surrounding Earth

    Additionally (NASA, in 2010):

    Quote Last year, one of Herman's Goddard colleagues, Paul Newman, published a study showing that the ozone hole likely would have become a year-round fixture and UV radiation would increase 650 percent by 2065 in mid-latitude cities if not for the Montreal Protocol, an international treaty signed in 1987 that limited the amount of ozone-depleting gases countries could emit.
    What if it is still going up? Like it seems to be?

    I do presently think that small uv-blocking lenses are useful for computer work, when most of the excessive uv is coming from the monitor, straight ahead. This is a quite different environment than flying or glacier climbing.
