Event Update For 2020-04-06


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.

2020-04-06 - Atmospheric methane levels increased in 2019 by the highest amount in five years to a new record high:

Quote: "The average level of methane in the atmosphere increased last year by the highest amount in five years, according to preliminary data released Sunday. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that the average level of methane in the atmosphere increased by 11.54 parts per billion (ppb) in 2019 over the level of methane in the atmosphere in 2018. This is the largest increase since 2014, when the average level of atmospheric methane increased by 12.72 ppb. Drew Shindell, an earth science professor at Duke University, called the 2019 increase 'alarmingly high.'"

Note: CO2 levels are still increasing too. The coronavirus collapse hasn't changed that either. Our civilization was the match that lit the fuse, but the fuse is now burning on its own and the metaphorical bomb is going to explode and wipe us out, even if we blow out the match now. In other words, we're not particularly relevant anymore. The Earth is now irrevocably heading toward a hothouse phase that will be unsurvivable by human beings regardless of what we do or don't do at this point. The best we can hope for now is to delay our extinction by a little bit...

    These Very Alarming Numbers Show How People Are “Coping” With The Coronavirus Pandemic

    It is during times of great crisis that we find out who we really are. Now that strict “shelter-in-place” orders have been instituted all over the world, most people have a lot more free time than usual. Of course some are using all of this extra free time for constructive purposes, but many others have decided that “self-medicating” is the best way to “cope” with this coronavirus pandemic. When under great pressure, people tend to gravitate to whatever is most important to them, and that is why what we are witnessing during this pandemic is so alarming. Just check out these new numbers…

    The virtual-sex trade has got a lift: Pornhub, the leading adult entertainment website, saw a near-12% increase in global traffic from Feb. 24 to March 17. British lingerie chain Ann Summers said sex toy sales were up 27% in the last week of March compared to the same period a year ago, with its quietest vibrator fast becoming its best seller.

    Self-medicating is all the rage. U.S. states including California, Colorado, Oregon and Alaska where cannabis is legal have reported 50% sales increases from March 16 and March 22, according to Flowhub. Online booze sales in the United States rose 243% in the week ending March 21, according to market research firm Nielsen. Binge buying drove British alcohol sales up 22% in March, according to Kantar. [more]

    Truck driver stabbed and killed 3 women at Tennessee truck stop before being shot, killed by law enforcement

    A Durham truck driver was shot and killed by law enforcement after stabbing four women at a Tennessee truck stop, killing three of them.

    According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Idris Abdus-Salaam, 33, is the man responsible for the violence that happened before 7 a.m. Tuesday at a Pilot truck stop in Knoxville, Tennessee.

    Investigators said Abdus-Salaam was in the parking lot holding a knife when officers arrived.

    Officers said they tried to get him to drop the knife, but he refused. At some point one of the officers opened fire, killing Abdus-Salaam.

    Three of the women Abdus-Salaam stabbed were employees at the truck stop. All three of them died from their injuries.

    A female customer at the truck stop was also stabbed. She was taken to the hospital, but the extent of her injuries has not been made public.

    The investigation remains active and ongoing.

    Prepare to have your worldview obliterated
    https://www.sott.net/article/432095-Prepare-to-have-your-worldview-obliterated [Caitlin Johnstone]
    What I do know is that enormous changes are happening, and that powerful people are definitely conspiring to advance their own interests as this unfolds. There are many theories about who specifically is conspiring with whom and the specific manner in which they are doing so, and they're being dismissed by establishment loyalists as "conspiracy theories" as though that in and of itself constitutes some sort of argument. That conspiracies are happening is actually just a fact that is obvious to any adult with a mature understanding of the world, and it can be useful to come up with theories about how that might be occurring; calling theories about conspiracies the thing that they are in a disparaging tone does not actually invalidate them.

    There are a ton of theories about what's going on behind the scenes with this pandemic and the policies that are being put in place to respond to it. Some are smart and relatively well-founded, some are stupid and rooted in generalized paranoia or partisan idiocy, many contradict each other, and many could potentially fit together in some way. I personally haven't seen enough evidence for any one theory to throw my weight behind it, but I am watching carefully, and I am glad that the hive mind is chewing on this riddle.

    One thing I will put my weight behind right now is the prediction that those of us who are dedicated to truth are going to have to drastically revise our worldviews in the coming months. There are such large-scale shifts happening in such an unclear information environment that the only thing we should expect is the unexpected; this virus is shaking things up (and being used to shake things up) in ways we don't really understand yet, and even before the virus the world's dominant power structures were acting very weird. This means our ideas about what's going on in the world will likely have to undergo some revising in the relatively near future; the bigger the revelations, the more revision will be necessary.

  4. Can 5G poison the cells?

    This is what David Icke was saying yesterday in his video with the difference that Mike Adams believes the virus is real and Icke does not.

    Can 5G exposure alter the structure and function of hemoglobin, causing coronavirus patients to die from oxygen deprivation?

    Is 5G to partially blame for coronavirus deaths? Can 5G cause the blood that’s circulating in your body to be unable to carry oxygen?

    What’s especially horrifying about the critical care of coronavirus patients is that they aren’t suffering from “viral pneumonia,” but rather from an inability to absorb or carry oxygen in the blood.

    This has been confirmed by NYC ICU emergency physician Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who has released several videos detailing how coronavirus is not a kind of viral pneumonia. “We’re treating the wrong disease,” he says. And the ventilators are damaging the lungs of patients. He explains

    Officials in at least 6 states are accusing the federal government of quietly diverting their orders for coronavirus medical equipment

    States have been making their own orders for ventilators, masks, and other personal protective equipment since President Donald Trump told them in March not to rely on the national stockpile for medical supplies.

    Trump has also instructed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to lead efforts to distribute equipment according to priority, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    But state and health leaders in Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Kentucky, Texas, and Florida are now accusing the federal government of of intercepting and diverting their equipment orders without explaining why.

    "Either you're buying them and you're providing them to the states and letting us know what we're going to get and when we're going to get them. Or stay out and let us buy them," Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said in comments addressed to FEMA on CNN. [more; Fuck Everyone My Attitude]
