I have been member of a small paragnost Workgroup as off 1983 till 2005, of which since 1993 till 2005 as notulist. On Saturday 13 April 1996 Cees de Haar, medium, Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, got the following message, reading in its English translation, (quotation:) "(..) The climate is not going well. The world's tectonic plates are scrolling into each other in the sliding process. In Japan, the tectonic plates slide over each other. There are large landslides and earthquakes. In the Philippines, extinct volcanoes will start working again as if they light each other as if in a chain of fire. This creates soot and dust emissions. The effect is similar to what happened when Saddam Hussein put his oil wells on fire. It is getting warmer. Because of this temperature rise and the behavior of the earth crust, this results in the Antarctic ice shift. This will not be noticed this year, it goes very slowly, but next year it will stand out. The governments of all countries will try the shifting to stop, but it is a plate the size of France with a thickness of two to three kilometers. The shift is not to stop."
On a next occasion (28 September 1996) the group received the messages in broken Dutch, (tranlated in the same style into broken English:) "But I can announce to you that the ice cap will break apart. The large crack will form, but this goes quicker than any government dares to think, beacuse they are talking about now and ten thousand years, but it will definitely happen in your life. Then the consequences are incalculable, because I can announce to you, even we ourselves cannot see what is going to happen. It's well established for us what so all can happen, but not all, because a very large tidal wave is coming, or rather a displacement of water, of which we also cannot completely see what he is going to drag out, but this is decisively on a decade at most to happen. Then you go in this era, that almost seven years will last. This then goes under a huge debt burden, which all governments will have, which would then still remain. Because there will be much wiped going to be, but also new land will come forward, and this is nice, but there are also other messages come through, becaus it's also true that new land is raised, but the old land with its pollution will move towards America. Moreover the new icecap will be formed there. I can announce to you that the crack, which walks into the ice, is momentarily being developed under the ice. It's already there in the form of haircuts, but they gorge, and they are there. The authorities give it attention, but they rather like to put their heads in the sand, so they almost look no further. This is going to change, beacuse within three years they will also have to come to the conclusion that the cracks will grow bigger. Then this giant pack of ice will begin to set in motion and it can certainly not be stopped. All the governmens of the major nations will be present to see what can be done about it, but no one knows, because the suggestions are made for throwing big bombs on it, but science warns that larger implications are then being set into motion, because the ice shelf can go off with a quantity which is incalculable. Bit it is going to happen within that year, which we will now enumerate, but again is is very difficult for us to work with your timetable, but as a matter of speech it around 2004 the era begins that the great mass of ice is going to put in motion, and this mass is definitely the size of the whole of France and the thickness of about two to three kilometers thick. This is going to be put in motion. But we have for you at least the good news that your country and other parts of Germany and the North Sea, which is often reported, will be formed as a kind of hand thrown up by us."
We sent these messages to trusted parties (i.a.governments and non governmental organizations, higher placed civil servants, scientific societies) as off about 1996, but it will be no surprise that these messages out of the unexpected corner were almost completely neglected, although on Antarcticconnection.com one could read during a rather long period a comment on behalf of the paragnost workgroup De Haar concerning "Nasa simulates fly through of ginormous crack in Antarctic glacier, takes you for virtual ride."
My suggestion would be to name the Ice crack phenomenon 'De Haar phenomenon', which is suitable, because to my knowledge he he was the first to describe this phenomenon , and the ice crack was originately seen as haircuts., De Haar means "The Hair". Sometimes one needs a good and recognized paragnost to have a look into future.
Credentials of De Haar concern paragnostic forecasts (i.a.) the Ozone gap, Tsjernobyl disaster (1996), the incident with Challenger (1996), the split up of the USSR (1989), the twintowers (2001), the financial and economic crises of 2008 till ?, the Syria crisis (2013), the climate change and the role of Antarctic, the crisis between radical Muslim States and the west, (which if this forecast comes out: the west will win at the loss of many lifes, especially Americans, and against heavy costs, WW III ?, being fought out in the south of France ?), todays US racial conflicts (take care !), lookalike problems of that kind in towns in France and in other European areas).
