Event Update For 2020-06-24

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.

Matthew Crist said a medical incident likely contributed to the man ending up in the water, where a 72-year-old witness rushed to his aid and performed a rescue."

2020-06-24 - COVID-19 escalating in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma, North Carolina and South Carolina:

Quote: "The U.S. recorded a one-day total of 34,700 new confirmed COVID-19 cases, the highest level since late April, when the number peaked at 36,400, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University."

Quote: "While newly confirmed infections have been declining steadily in early hot spots such as New York and New Jersey, several other states set single-day records this week, including Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada, Texas and Oklahoma. Some of them also broke hospitalization records, as did North Carolina and South Carolina."

Quote: "In Texas, if the current case trajectory continues, Houston could be the hardest-hit city in the US with numbers rivaling those in Brazil. Infection numbers are also rising in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio, said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine."

Quote: "In Texas, which began lifting its shutdowns on May 1, hospitalizations have doubled and new cases have tripled in two weeks. Gov. Greg Abbott told KFDA-TV the state is facing a 'massive outbreak' and might need new local restrictions to preserve hospital space."

Note: The president says this is because of more testing. Well, nobody ever accused him of being the brightest bulb in the lighting store. The doubling of hospitalizations is obviously because many more people are getting seriously ill, not because they're being tested. Derp!

  1. Hey Jonny, everyone. There's so much going on that it's hard to keep up.
    All kinds of anomalous weather and natural phenomena are happening. We saw the (@ least 6 months long) heat spike in Siberia, rainfall records and unprecedented flooding.

    [Check this out]
    World record longest lightning flash of 440 miles confirmed

    The "megaflash" traveled 440 miles over parts of southern Brazil on October 31, 2018.

    This is equivalent to the distance between Washington, DC, and Boston.

    [then we have this]
    In addition to the longest flash in terms of distance, a world record for longest lightning strike in terms of time was also announced: A single flash lasted 16.73 seconds over northern Argentina on March 4, 2019. [WOW!!]

    [bringing us to the present]
    On Thursday in India, 83 people, mostly farm workers, were killed by lightning during thunderstorms in Bihar state. [more; that's gotta be a record!]

    [record DUST storm from Sahara]
    Sahara dust storm hits Torreón, Coahuila - Mexico, June 24,2020 [45 sec video]

    Friday, 26 June 2020
    The 3,500-mile-long, (5,600 km) cloud, dubbed the “Godzilla dust cloud,” travelled 5,000 miles (8,047 km) and has now arrived in the southern US where COVID-19 cases has recently spiked causing concern among doctors.

    This year, the dust is the densest it has been in a half a century, several meteorologists told Reuters earlier this week as it crossed over the Caribbean.

    The Saharan dust plume will hang over the region until the middle of next week, deteriorating the air quality in Texas, Florida and other states [more]

  3. Grand Solar Minimum and Increase in Cosmic Rays Behind Lightning Attacks That Killed 107 People in India Overnight and Longest Megaflash in Time (Argentina) and Distance (Brazil)

    A Global Magnetic Anomaly Was Recorded Across the World From the U.S. to China and Antarctica on June 23rd – And That’s Very Weird During the Deepest Solar Minimum in a Century!

    Scott et al, 2014, suggest that the solar wind controls lightning on Earth, “increase in Galactic Cosmic Ray flux may directly trigger lightning through ‘runaway breakdown’ of electrons, leading to breakdown.”

    Grand Solar Minimum = increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays = trigger for Lightning through ‘runaway breakdown’ of electrons [more]

    Lately, Earth’s magnetic field has been quiet. Very quiet. The sun is in the pits of what may turn out to be the deepest Solar Minimum in a century. Geomagnetic storms just aren’t happening.

    But on June 23rd instruments in Preston, UK, picked up a magnetic anomaly… And the local magnetic field oscillated like a sine wave for more than 30 minutes. Totally weird, no? [more]

    Inside the body, the coronavirus is even more sinister than scientists had realized

    The new coronavirus’ reputation for messing with scientists’ assumptions has taken a truly creepy turn.

    Researchers exploring the interaction between the coronavirus and its hosts have discovered that when the SARS-CoV-2 virus infects a human cell, it sets off a ghoulish transformation. Obeying instructions from the virus, the newly infected cell sprouts multi-pronged tentacles studded with viral particles.

    These disfigured zombie cells appear to be using those streaming filaments, or filopodia, to reach still-healthy neighboring cells. The protuberances appear to bore into the cells’ bodies and inject their viral venom directly into those cells’ genetic command centers — thus creating another zombie.[more; so this IS a zombie apocalypse!]
