Known for her Earth changes prophecies, and the I AM America Map which shows vast swaths of North America submerged, Lori Toye (blog) discussed her latest work on the vital role of the 'Golden Cities' -- possible safe places during cataclysmic changes. These spiritual havens, which are situated on interconnecting ley lines, will aid in the reconstruction of sustainable communities for future generations, she said, adding that there are five such areas in the United States each 270 miles across-- Gobean (Arizona & New Mexico including Pinetop, AZ), Malton (Illinois & Indiana including Mattoon, IL), Wahanee (Georgia & South Carolina including Augusta, GA), Shalaha (Montana & Idaho including Missoula, MT), and Klehma (Colorado, Kansas, & Nebraska including Cope, CO). Internationally, there are a total of 51 golden cities, she stated.
Toye, who receives her information in a trance state from spirit beings or "master teachers," noted that some of the Earth changes may not be as drastic as originally depicted on her maps (such as the entire West Coast underwater). Prayer and enlightened human consciousness can positively affect circumstances, she pointed out. In a forthcoming book, she'll be revealing a new map which shows Earth in the distant past when lands such as Rama, Mu, Atlantis, and Amaru (where the US now is) once existed.
According to her sources, as we move into the "new times," there'll be a whole new generation of souls (like the Indigo children) that will help raise the Earth's vibration. We'll learn how to tap into specific areas of the Earth, and develop interdimensional travel, she continued. Yet, we'll be faced with dramatic earth changes over the next century, such as an asteroid or meteor impact in the Nevada desert that will set off a series of cataclysms including earthquakes, volcanoes, non-stop rain, and a possible pole shift, she cautioned.
Prior to a dream in 1983, Lori Adaile Toye was a farm wife and mother of three small children. Since she had been a student of Ascended Masters teachings from 1978, when four Beings in white robes appeared in her dream and unrolled huge maps of North America, showing imminent changes on earth, she quickly recognized these Beings as the spiritual teachers she had been studying. Though she didn't act on this dream for several years, this event marked the dramatic beginning of her life's work.
Five years later, encouraged by more friends, Lori began to probe the dream through daily meditation, hoping that the details about the prophecy from her dream would be revealed. The four Beings in white robes appeared again and expressed willingness to share the information. Six months of transmissions began. There were over eighty sessions altogether. In the end, the earth changes material only comprised about ten percent of what was communicated to Lori by these Masters. The balance of the information was based in spiritual teachings. As the material was analyzed, it became apparent that this was the most detailed body of earth changes prophecy that the Western world had received in recent times.
Vulnerability of human societies to climate change mainly lies in the effects of extreme-weather events rather than gradual climate change. Impacts of climate change so far include adverse effects on small islands, adverse effects on indigenous populations in high-latitude areas, and small but discernable effects on human health. Over the 21st century, climate change is likely to adversely affect hundreds of millions of people through increased coastal flooding, reductions in water supplies, increased malnutrition and increased health impacts. Most economic studies suggest losses of world gross domestic product (GDP) for this magnitude of warming
Global warming controversy
The global warming controversy refers to a variety of disputes, significantly more pronounced in the popular media than in the scientific literature, regarding the nature, causes, and consequences of global warming. The disputed issues include the causes of increased global average air temperature, especially since the mid-20th century, whether this warming trend is unprecedented or within normal climatic variations, whether humankind has contributed significantly to it, and whether the increase is wholly or partially an artifact of poor measurements. Additional disputes concern estimates of climate sensitivity, predictions of additional warming, and what the consequences of global warming will be.
