Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare…

From afar the Earth seems calm, a blue sphere turning peacefully in space, but travel closer and you find a turbulent and terrifying place. An atmosphere where hurricanes and tornados are spawned, and below that a realm of volcanos and earthquakes.

Starting just before New Year’s Day, on Boxing Day 2004, the year 2005 was the most disastrous on record, with hundreds of billions of pounds of losses and more than half a million deaths. This programme covers the litany of planetary catastrophes, from the extraordinary Boxing Day killer tsunami in the Indian Ocean, through the great Kashmir earthquake to Hurricane Katrina and the devastation it wrought on New Orleans, along with UK events, such as the Birmingham tornado, which reached the highest tornado category, yet miraculously killed no-one.

2005 saw an onslaught of epic-scale climate and geological events across the world, all caught on camera in the most spectacular fashion by professionals and amateurs alike. Using eye-witness footage, interviews with survivors and rescuers and analysis from geological and weather specialists, this documentary charts the incredible natural events of a year where almost every month was affected by a natural disaster.

At that time it was the hottest year on record, and the stormiest, people on every continent were affected in some way by the year’s disasters. World leading scientists and climatologists speculate whether the events have been triggered by a real shift in the earth’s climatic systems.

Some of the natural disasters covered in this documentary :

Indian Ocean Earthquake and Asian Tsunami

The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred on 26th December with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The earthquake was caused when the Indian Plate was subducted by the Burma Plate and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing over 230,000 people in fourteen countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 metres high.

Maharashtra Floods

The 2005 Maharashtra floods refers to the flooding of many parts of the Indian state of Maharashtra including large areas of the metropolis Mumbai a city located on the coast of the Arabian Sea, on the western coast of India, in which at least 5,000 people died.

Birmingham Tornado

The Birmingham tornado was one of the strongest tornadoes recorded in the United Kingdom in nearly 30 years, occurring on 28th July 2005 in the suburbs of Birmingham. The tornado uprooted an estimated 1,000 trees, removed the roofs of buildings, picked up and deposited cars and caused other damage during its short existence.

European Floods

The 2005 European floods hit mainly Romania, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, as well as several other countries in Central Europe and Eastern Europe during August. The disaster came at a time when Portugal was suffering from intense forest fires which left 15 dead.

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic tropical cyclone of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It is the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. At least 1,833 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods. The most significant number of deaths occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana, which flooded as the levee system catastrophically failed.

Kashmir Earthquake

The Kashmir earthquake occurred on 8th October 2005 and was centred in the Pakistan administered Kashmir near the city of Muzaffarabad, and also affected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It registered a moment magnitude of 7.6. The government of Pakistan’s official death toll was 75,000. The severity of the damage caused by the earthquake is attributed to severe upthrust, coupled with poor construction.

  1. Boxing Day = Christmas Day WOW A fucking 9.5 earthquake that lasted 9minutes. Got dam. Think about for a second. A 9.5 earthquakes that lasted 10minutes. 10minutes is an hour in earthquake minutes Then a Tsunami. How fucking horrific. Oh I’m so sorry.

  2. You witnessed wrath of thanos in 2005 , now wait for the Omega wrath of " DARKSEID"

    BTW I'm surprised that makers of " ancient aliens" show didn't get their hands on this documentary otherwise they would have told that "Aliens" did this

  3. It's shit over blowing.
    Each month, whether it's tsunami, monsoon or earthquake, each month 100,000 people die in these and similar natural perturbations just in India.

    So my calculation, till year 2025, there will be only one person inhabiting an entire Indian subcontinent, including India, Pakistan and Himalayas.

    These numbers of dead are just unbelievable and deceit to the public.

  4. (STILL HAVE WASHINGTON'S MT. ST. HELLENS SUPER VOLCANO, NEW YORKS SUPER STUNAMI,& SAN ADREAS FAULT IN C.A.) God's wrath is on the world especially world leader-influencer n it's "Sodom & Gomora" like perverted Nation in U.S.A.!!

  5. I remember the flood of 2002 in central Germany was far worst, with nearly 10 meters flood tide, but ok go on – ps: central Europe and northern Europe are not quite same

  6. Hurricane Katrina — the US Government was NOT slow to respond. They responded within the designated time frame. The people of New Orleans were trying to shoot down rescue helicopters, to the point the army had to send Apache gunships as escorts.

  7. The government wasn't slow to help the Africa's of New Orleans thats a load of shit! I was hauling FEMA trailers as soon as the water receded nice trailers fully furnished and ready to move into so you can tell that lie somewhere else! What you mean to say is the government didn't rush in and hold their hands it was the most rediculus thing I've ever seen and really showed me the lack of character lack of self-reliance absolutely no motivation in the black communities to make their own situation better! We opened the super dome stadium and provided food and cots to sleep on and what did they do? They tore shit up didn't clean up after their selves they bitched about what they didn't have the men were raping the young girls and women they wanted everything handed to them and didn't want to do anything their selves and this was the majority not all but most 95%! Mean while the white communities were pulling together they had their boats out saving people they were doing what had to be done what normal human beings are supposed to be doing in a disaster! And if you wanna be mad at me for telling the truth go ahead your just mad at the truth not me! What's happened is the government has give them handouts for so long they think everyone else is responsible for feeding them housing them and everything inbettween and it has absolutely crippled them mentally to the point when something happens they don't know what to do and its pathetic but most of all sad and let me say again not all not all but most and until this happened and I seen it with my own to eyes I had no idea but I sure found out and I was driving thousands of miles to help them never got so much as a thank you I got cursed out a few times and told how sorry my white ass was because I wasn't doing enough and four black guys tried to rob me until they got around and could see I had my gun pointed at their heads then tried to act like they just needed a ride and they could see plainly I was bringing them housing from FEMA how shitty of a person do you have to be to rob someone thats trying to help you? Don't worry never again ever!!!

  8. Man no political giants where killed in any of these events which means this was a staged event and everyone was involved were was the government leaders in these countries that were wiped clean pay attention this is population control the Tsunami was caused #StayWoke

  9. Tropical Cyclone Intensification is an electrical process being driven by electron precipitation from the Inner Van Allen Belt located directly above the Earth’s equator and Solar forcing induced ionization within Earth’s Ionosphere. The mechanism behind Tropical Cyclone Intensification is described in detail within my Broadcom Master’s Weather Channel 2017 interview and my award winning 2018 New Mexico Google Science Fair entry titled “Van Allen's Key: Unlocking the Secret of Yearly Worldwide Tropical Cyclone Activity”. The links that unlock the secret of Tropical Cyclone Intensification are provided here:

    The year 2018 has been a quiet year with regard to solar flare activity with no M or X class solar flares being recorded by NOAA. The exponential regressions contained in Figures 7, 8 and 9 of my Google Science Fair (see link above) return 2019 tropical cyclone activity estimates: ACE2019= 628 +/- 124 knots2; with 43 +/- 17 MHDs2019, and 134 +/- 27 HDs2019.

    The earth is, beyond a shadow of doubt, floating in a sea of energy!

  10. Total BS. There were more storms in the 50's, the 60's and especially 1890's. It was hotter in the 30's. More lies, more fear, just give them all your money.

  11. I'd argue that the Boxing Day tsunami stirred the ocean currents worldwide and caused a wild year for our climate.
    Ironically 2005 was the year I moved to Florida.

  12. why cant earth be good nothing bad happen babies get born pepole die why cant life be just that not bad things
