Event Update For 2020-02-23

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

    The “Unsinkable” Financial Markets Just Slammed Into A Massive “Iceberg” Called The Coronavirus

    We just witnessed the third largest single day point drop in U.S. stock market history, and experts are warning that things will only get worse if this coronavirus pandemic continues to escalate. On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down a whopping 1,031 points, and it looks like there could be more volatility on Tuesday. In fact, the Nikkei is already down 787 points as I write this article. Of course this sudden decline is being mostly driven by fear of the coronavirus. The rapid spread of the virus in South Korea, Italy and Iran over the weekend really rattled investors, and there was a rush to sell stocks when the markets opened on Monday morning. And the worse this pandemic becomes, the lower stock prices are going to go. [more]

    Virus is Becoming a Global Political Risk

    The world is finding out that China’s problem is everyone’s.

    The coronavirus is spreading further beyond China’s borders, with clusters in Italy, South Korea, Japan and Iran, and cases topping 80,000 globally.

    While the outbreak isn’t yet a pandemic, the challenges for governments are rising.

    Travel bans, quarantines, stress on health-care systems and business closures are just the start. Some countries have nixed annual events that usually draw big-spending crowds.

    Emerging cases in North Africa and the Middle East are starting to fan chatter in Europe about its porous borders. In a continent wrestling with far-right parties, the virus could quickly become embroiled in anti-migration rhetoric.
