Event Update For 2018-12-15

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.

  1. So the way it works is, when the conditions are right for high surf, all the pros are alerted and given 24 hrs to show up at Mavericks for the Big Wave contest. In this case they called it off, to wait for "better conditions." Waves are TOO BIG to ride safely, according to the contest host.

    STAY WELL BACK FROM THE OCEAN OR RISK CERTAIN DEATH: Largest wave event this season is headed on San Francisco and its Bay

    A very large swell is headed toward San Francisco promising waves so big, so bawdy, that the National Weather Service, not known for poetic over-pronouncements, informed folk who live Sonoma and Monterey counties if they go to the beach between 9 am on Sunday and 9 am on Monday then they risk “certain death.” [more]

    Warnings of the decline and collapse of the world economy

    Trend is Clear – Rapid Decline of World Economy – Egon von Greyerz

    Financial and precious metals expert Egon von Greyerz (EvG) says don’t expect the global financial situation to get better anytime soon. EvG says, “You know what the politicians are doing now? Theresa May is my best example. These politicians are just running around posing and acting, but they are not achieving anything, and they are not achieving anything because the world is in a mess. What we are seeing the beginning of is the decline of the western world economy, which means the whole world economy. . . . There is no use in putting a time period on it, that it’s going to happen this year or next year. The trend is clear. We know that the world economy is in a mess. It’s going to decline, and in my view, it’s going to be a rapid decline.. . . Gold will reflect all of this, and currencies will be totally debased. . . . You don’t need a lot, you might only need another few snowflakes to trigger this avalanche. It could come in a month or in three months time because the system is a fake system. . . . I count $2 quadrillion in money. If you add debt, unfunded liabilities and the risk of derivatives, you come up to $2 quadrillion of debt and liabilities. The global

    GDP is $70 trillion. . . . So, you are talking about 30 times global GDP.” [more; ~ 33.5 min. video]

  2. Paul Craig Roberts on societal collapse

    Western Civilization no longer exists

    The Cheney-Bush and Obama regimes destroyed due process, with the result that American citizens were detained in prison indefinitely without evidence and murdered without evidence or trial.

    In violation of US and international laws, the US government used torture to produce “terrorists,” who were not terrorists, in order to justify Washington’s wars, wars that have nothing whatsoever to do with “fighting terrorism”.

    The Democratic Party’s Identity Politics’ successful demonization of white heterosexual males has made American universities unsafe for white heterosexual males.

    Any woman can accuse them of rape, and despite the absence of any evidence, and even in the face of complete evidence to the contrary, the university, in total violation of all known rules of due process, can convict the accused—indeed, conviction on accusation alone is mandatory in American universities—and destroy the reputation of the accused along with his ability to continue his education.

  3. It’s Trump vs. Schumer for all the marbles, and someone is leaving this cage match completely neutered

    The stage is set for a battle of political willpower that could potentially be unlike anything that we have ever seen before in American history. Last Tuesday, there was a shouting match in the Oval Office that changed everything. During a very heated exchange with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, President Trump boldly declared that the border wall will get built and that he would be “proud to shut down the government for border security”. The Democrats are going to take control of the House of Representatives in January, and so Trump realizes that it is now or never for his top campaign promise. If he doesn’t get funding for the wall now, he will never get it, and he will go into the 2020 election without anything to show the voters on his signature issue. [more]

    Desecration and Desolation

    What comes next will end Globalization as we know it. There is too much accumulated leverage and too much complacency to prevent systemic meltdown. Too much ignorance. Too much arrogance. Too much exceptional buffoonery obfuscating the end of empire. They can't handle what this all means.

    Tourists may be making Antarctica’s penguins sick

    [are you kidding? People are KILLING THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT]

    You can give your cat the flu. You can also pass pneumonia to a chimpanzee or tuberculosis to a bird. This kind of human-to-animal disease transmission, known as reverse zoonosis, has been seen on every continent except one: Antarctica. Now, human-linked pathogens in bird poop reveal, for the first time, that even animals on this isolated, ice-bound landmass can pick up a bug from tourists or visiting scientists. This newly identified infection route could have devastating consequences for Antarctic bird colonies, including population collapse and even extinction. [more]

    5 takeaways from the COP24 global climate summit

    The major accomplishment was that 196 governments agreed on a rulebook to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement, but the result left bruised feelings all around.

    The poorest and most vulnerable countries felt that it demanded too little of industrialized countries, developing countries had to agree on common reporting requirements to bring their climate promises into line with those of more developed countries, and the richest countries have to be more open about their financial support to those most affected by global warming.

    And the answer to the biggest question of all — will the agreement actually help the world avoid catastrophic climate change? — is mixed at best. [more]

    Dr. Mark Sircus: The cannabis cure for cancer

    In Summary

    Cannabinoids are found to exert their anti-cancer effects in a number of ways and in a variety of tissues.

    Triggering cell death, through a mechanism called apoptosis
    Stopping cells from dividing

    Preventing new blood vessels from growing into tumours

    Reducing the chances of cancer cells spreading through the body, by stopping cells from moving or invading neighbouring tissue

    Speeding up the cell's internal 'waste disposal machine' - a process known as autophagy - which can lead to cell death

    All these effects are thought to be caused by cannabinoids locking onto the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. Almost daily we are seeing new or confirming evidence that Cannibinoids can be used to great benefit in cancer treatment of many types. [more]
