This post is gonna be a long one...but that's because I'm trying to offer a synopsis of close to a decade-worth of blogging by a man who goes by the moniker Texas Arcane.
I recently discovered his rather interesting blog, VaultCo., last week. I've essentially read most of his archives, and came away with a rather troubled mind while trying to comprehend the big picture that this blog paints regarding the near future for our planet and civilization.
Before I delve into the details, I'm going to outline the general premise of what this blogger calls "The Apocalypse Trifecta."
It may sound crazy.
It may sound fantastic and impossible.
But before you dismiss it out of hand, you probably should read a little bit more on the following topics:
* Global Warming is so much more than a hoax and a lie. It is in fact a worldwide ploy of deception to keep the masses of people distracted from the REAL climate change issues we will all be facing in the coming years.
* And that climate change is not Warming, but in fact the commencement of another Ice Age. According to reports he offers copious links to, the Earth's climate is completely driven by cycles of Solar activity, and that according to scientists that study the sun, our life-giving star at the heart of our solar system is moving into a lower activity phase. When this happens, we get an ice age. When it picks up activity, we have a warmer climate. We are at the end of the most recent warming period, and are on the cusp of the next ice age.
* Governments and elite wealthy around the world are all in on the deliberate misdirection in getting everyone to worry about Global Warming. While everyone is worried about Warming, those in the know are preparing for Cooling. Building shelters and stockpiling food and supplies.
* With the advent of a new ice age, the current system of global food production and distribution will literally collapse, the price of energy to heat up an increasingly colder world will skyrocket, and nations will begin to push to the brink of war as basic resources become scarce. With most of the world's food system dependent on corporate agriculture, much of these crops the world depends on will not be able to grow when the climate changes become drastic.
* Another effect of the change in the Sun's activity is the possible movement of the Earth's magnetic poles. This may explain why there have been reports of mass animal deaths all over the world in the last month. Many of these animals are migratory species that use the magnetic poles to guide their migration patterns. The poles have begun shifting, causing many of these animals to get lost in migration, and fail to find food or warmer climates because they went off course, and have begun dying en mass when they find themselves where there is no food or warmer conditions than they can handle.
* Along with the change of the magnetic poles, also comes increased volcanic activity. So-called "super" volcanoes that have lain dormant for thousands of years are waking up and showing signs of coming eruptions.
* Like the reports of Krakatoa's explosion in 1883, one of these super volcanoes eruption will put so much ash into the climate, the sun will be blocked out for months, killing any remaining crops that may have survived the rapidly cooling planet. Furthermore, the ash filled skies will cool the planet even quicker than the natural cooling effects of the sun cycle, essentially jump starting the next ice age.
* With a crash in food supplies and access to energy to survive the rapidly cooling planet, countries will resort to war over what little resources remain.
* Millions of people will die of starvation, war and freezing temperatures.
* This may explain why there have been so many reports of the Government creating FEMA camps, and running all sorts of training exercises in which the troops are preparing to deal with massive civil unrest in the homeland. This may also explain why past US Presidents have signed all sorts of executive orders giving the President the power to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law. When the earth begins rapidly cooling, and volcanic eruptions black out the skies, dropping temperatures even quicker, and destroyed crops resulting in food shortages, combined with the already escalating economic crises will result in a mass of rioting civilians desperate for food. The FEMA camps are the Governments preparation for the coming events.
In summary, the Apocalypse Trifecta will be Climate Change, Economic Collapse and War.
Here are the links to mainstream articles that bolster each piece of the puzzle that blogger Texas Arcane has put together to make a case that supports the coming Apocalypse Trifecta.
The first link requires a careful reading...it's an older article from 2004. When it first came out, the entire "global warming is real/global warming is a fraud" debate was quick to seize on this article for political pandering on both sides.
But if you read it carefully, you'll see the bait and switch: Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us
Note that every reference to the Pentagon's report, refers to CLIMATE CHANGE...NOT Global Warming.
The report begins:
Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..
A secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
If the global catastrophe is supposedly going to be caused by global "warming," why would Britain be "plunged into a Siberian climate by 2020?"
The rising seas, is supposed to be explained by the melting glaciers all over the world, right? Except that's not what is going on. The glaciers are actually growing....yet this will still result in rising seas. Think of a glass of water for which you add new ice cubes to it...what happens to the water level as you add more and more ice?
In other words, increased glaciers will cause the seas to rise and planet-wide cooling!
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
'Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,' concludes the Pentagon analysis. 'Once again, warfare would define human life.'
The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority.
Here's the first clue - the Bush Administration repeatedly denied that GLOBAL WARMING DUE TO HUMAN ACTIVITY exists...not climate change. But the Al Gore, left-wing environmentalist contingent seized on this report to score political points against Bush and the GOP, thereby allowing a report like this to be published...yet largely ignored as most of the people who read it will automatically default to their partisan indoctrination and be contained entirely in the Global Warming debate.
Climate change 'should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern', say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.
An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is 'plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately', they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions.
Global Warming would supposedly cause upheaval for millions living along coastlines...but major food production could still occur in a warming climate. Hell, if there really is a so called "greenhouse" effect, growing more food should be easier. But not if the real problem of climate change really means global cooling!

The Coming of a New Ice Age
BY GERALD E. MARSH
CHICAGO — Contrary to the conventional wisdom of the day, the real danger facing humanity is not global warming, but more likely the coming of a new Ice Age.
What we live in now is known as an interglacial, a relatively brief period between long ice ages. Unfortunately for us, most interglacial periods last only about ten thousand years, and that is how long it has been since the last Ice Age ended.
How much longer do we have before the ice begins to spread across the Earth’s surface? Less than a hundred years or several hundred? We simply don’t know.
Even if all the temperature increase over the last century is attributable to human activities, the rise has been relatively modest one of a little over one degree Fahrenheit — an increase well within natural variations over the last few thousand years.
While an enduring temperature rise of the same size over the next century would cause humanity to make some changes, it would undoubtedly be within our ability to adapt.
Entering a new ice age, however, would be catastrophic for the continuation of modern civilization.
One has only to look at maps showing the extent of the great ice sheets during the last Ice Age to understand what a return to ice age conditions would mean. Much of Europe and North-America were covered by thick ice, thousands of feet thick in many areas and the world as a whole was much colder.
The last “little” Ice Age started as early as the 14th century when the Baltic Sea froze over followed by unseasonable cold, storms, and a rise in the level of the Caspian Sea. That was followed by the extinction of the Norse settlements in Greenland and the loss of grain cultivation in Iceland. Harvests were even severely reduced in Scandinavia And this was a mere foreshadowing of the miseries to come.
On the Magnetic Pole Reversal and the recent mass animal die-offs all over the planet:
The British Geological Society Page on Magnetic Pole Reversal.
Shift in Magnetic North Pole Affects Tampa International Airport
Here's the extensive list of links documenting the mass die offs of birds and fish all over the planet in the past month.
Here's an article that makes the connection between the magnetic shift and the mass die offs.
Along with the magnetic pole reversals will come increased volcanic activity...and one of those super-volcanoes that has been dormant for over 600,000 years has been changing dramatically these past few years...
Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years, wiping out two-thirds of the U.S.?
It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.
Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.
Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.
On the verge of a catastrophe? Yellowstone National Park's caldera has erupted three times in the last 2.1million years and scientists monitoring it say we could be in for another eruption.
This is the nightmare that scientists are predicting could happen if the world’s largest super-volcano erupts for the first time in 600,000 years, as it could do in the near future.
Yellowstone National Park’s caldera has erupted three times in the last 2.1million years and researchers monitoring it say we could be in for another eruption.
They said that the super-volcano underneath the Wyoming park has been rising at a record rate since 2004 - its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years alone, the fastest rate since records began in 1923.
And Yellowstone is not the only volcano on the planet doing interesting things...
Here are some more links regarding the coming ice age:
Not by Fire but by Ice
The next ice age could begin any day.
Next week, next month, next year, it's not a question of if, only when.
One day you'll wake up - or you won't wake up, rather - buried beneath nine stories of snow. It's all part of a dependable, predictable cycle, a natural cycle that returns like clockwork every 11,500 years.
. . . And since the last ice age ended almost exactly 11,500 years ago . . .
It’s a natural cycle!
… it’s a cycle … it’s a cycle … it’s a cycle
From Earth on the Brink of an Ice Age
The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age, according to a large and compelling body of evidence from within the field of climate science. Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.
Ice cores, ocean sediment cores, the geologic record, and studies of ancient plant and animal populations all demonstrate a regular cyclic pattern of Ice Age glacial maximums which each last about 100,000 years, separated by intervening warm interglacials, each lasting about 12,000 years.
Most of the long-term climate data collected from various sources also shows a strong correlation with the three astronomical cycles which are together known as the Milankovich cycles. The three Milankovich cycles include the tilt of the earth, which varies over a 41,000 year period; the shape of the earth’s orbit, which changes over a period of 100,000 years; and the Precession of the Equinoxes, also known as the earth’s ‘wobble’, which gradually rotates the direction of the earth’s axis over a period of 26,000 years. According to the Milankovich theory of Ice Age causation, these three astronomical cycles, each of which effects the amount of solar radiation which reaches the earth, act together to produce the cycle of cold Ice Age maximums and warm interglacials.
What about the increase in C02 in the atmosphere that has got so many people convinced the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is occurring? The increasing C02 may in fact be nothing more than a natural occurence that happens on a cyclical basis every time the Earth goes into another ice age.
The graph of the Vostok ice core data shows that the Ice Age maximums and the warm interglacials occur within a regular cyclic pattern, the graph-line of which is similar to the rhythm of a heartbeat on an electrocardiogram tracing. The Vostok data graph also shows that changes in global CO2 levels lag behind global temperature changes by about eight hundred years. What that indicates is that global temperatures precede or cause global CO2 changes, and not the reverse. In other words, increasing atmospheric CO2 is not causing global temperature to rise; instead the natural cyclic increase in global temperature is causing global CO2 to rise.
The reason that global CO2 levels rise and fall in response to the global temperature is because cold water is capable of retaining more CO2 than warm water. That is why carbonated beverages loose their carbonation, or CO2, when stored in a warm environment. We store our carbonated soft drinks, wine, and beer in a cool place to prevent them from loosing their ‘fizz’, which is a feature of their carbonation, or CO2 content. The earth is currently warming as a result of the natural Ice Age cycle, and as the oceans get warmer, they release increasing amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Because the release of CO2 by the warming oceans lags behind the changes in the earth’s temperature, we should expect to see global CO2 levels continue to rise for another eight hundred years after the end of the earth’s current Interglacial warm period. We should already be eight hundred years into the coming Ice Age before global CO2 levels begin to drop in response to the increased chilling of the world’s oceans.
The Vostok ice core data graph reveals that global CO2 levels regularly rose and fell in a direct response to the natural cycle of Ice Age minimums and maximums during the past four hundred and twenty thousand years. Within that natural cycle, about every 110,000 years global temperatures, followed by global CO2 levels, have peaked at approximately the same levels which they are at today.
Today we are again at the peak, and near to the end, of a warm interglacial, and the earth is now due to enter the next Ice Age. If we are lucky, we may have a few years to prepare for it. The Ice Age will return, as it always has, in its regular and natural cycle, with or without any influence from the effects of AGW.
The AGW theory is based on data that is drawn from a ridiculously narrow span of time and it demonstrates a wanton disregard for the ‘big picture’ of long-term climate change. The data from paleoclimatology, including ice cores, sea sediments, geology, paleobotany and zoology, indicate that we are on the verge of entering another Ice Age, and the data also shows that severe and lasting climate change can occur within only a few years. While concern over the dubious threat of Anthropogenic Global Warming continues to distract the attention of people throughout the world, the very real threat of the approaching and inevitable Ice Age, which will render large parts of the Northern Hemisphere uninhabitable, is being foolishly ignored.
One aspect of the New World Order Conspiracy theories that arouse so much debate and disbelief is the idea that the power elite plan to commit genocide to reach their stated goal, as carved into the Georgia Guidestones, is to "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature."
Given the current population is estimated to be approaching 7 billion, many conspiracy theorists have guessed that the power elite are planning a genocidal culling to reduce humanity to those "maintenance numbers."
Perhaps, the real conspiracy is that these people know we are due for catastrophic climate change and the wars they will effect, and they have been preparing to survive the changes while most of us die out.
Anyhow...do I really believe this theory?
I'm not sure, but it sounds entirely plausible, given that the Earths history is full of catastrophic events. Just because we haven't had a global catastrophe in the annals of recorded human history doesn't mean it can't happen. Afterall, the existence of man is but a blink of an eye in terms of geological time. The planet is full of historical records of these things occurring in cyclical regularity in the past...what makes us think the cycle has stopped?
