Event Update For 2019-01-22

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.

    Australia Heatwave: Port Augusta hits 49.5C (121 deg F) in South Australia as 25 heat records tumble and the fish die-off crisis continues

    The Red Lion, a pub in the city’s Elizabeth North suburb, promised to hand out free beers if the mercury rose above 45C.
    By 1pm, there was a line out the door and around the block.
    According to the Guardian, the mass fish kill crisis in New South Wales is now affecting the state’s north with thousands of carcasses found on the banks of Lake Inverell.

    The Trump Administration Is Warning That The U.S. Economy May Not Grow At All During The First Quarter Of 2019

    [get used to it]

    This government shutdown is really starting to take a toll on the U.S. economy. On Wednesday, the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers made an absolutely stunning admission. We all knew that the global economy was slowing down, and we all knew that U.S. economic activity was beginning to sputter, but up until this week the Trump administration had always insisted that we are not heading for a recession. Well, all of that changed on Wednesday when Kevin Hassett publicly admitted that we could end up with zero GDP growth during the first quarter of 2019… [more]

  3. VolPlosion 2.0: Terminal Idiocracy

    the short-term indicators are lining up uncannily similar to this time last year.

    Aside from short-term parallels - an entire year of global risk has been assiduously ignored, rendering year over year comparisons wholly fraudulent, except for the most denialistic of market observers aka. everyone you know.

    Secondly, a confluence of events took place one year ago - Davos, the Fed meeting (next week), and of course quarterly earnings announcements.

    The USDJPY carry pair is nearly identical to last year, and has already flash crashed once this month (top pane). In the lower pane, we see that the volatility curve is currently sandwiched between the recent low - which was the low observed in December - and the all-important breakeven level. The VIX has been hammering the breakeven level for the past two days, attempting to breakout. A necessary and sufficient event to trigger VolPlosion 2.0

    However, the critical divergence from last year is the magnitude of balance sheet rolloff now taking place on auto-pilot. 2018 saw roughly $450 billion of quantitative tightening - most of which took place in the second half of the year when the wheels came off the bus. Whereas 2019 is slated to see $600 billion. [more]

    Doomsday clock has world at two minutes from Armageddon

    Humanity is just two minutes from Armageddon, unchanged from last year's unveiling of the Doomsday clock and remaining the closest it has inched to symbolic doom since 1953 in the height of the Cold War.

    The Doomsday Clock doesn't represent a real prediction of calamity, but is instead used as a visual metaphor for how close the world is to a potentially civilization-ending catastrophe. [more; in that case, we're well past the hour!]

    We may finally know what causes Alzheimer’s – and how to stop it

    If you bled when you brushed your teeth this morning, you might want to get that seen to. We may finally have found the long-elusive cause of Alzheimer’s disease: Porphyromonas gingivalis, the key bacteria in chronic gum disease.

    That’s bad, as gum disease affects around a third of all people. But the good news is that a drug that blocks the main toxins of P. gingivalis is entering major clinical trials this year, and research published today shows it might stop and even reverse Alzheimer’s. There could even be a vaccine. [more]

    UFO Sightings - Jan 13-17, 2019 Submissions Compilation

    [Jonny, are you familiar with the site Mia's New Glasses? Chick thinks all the weird stuff we're seeing (like the NY electrical event, lots of the sky phenomena, and more) is the result of plasma that cyclically destroys the planet; oh yeah, and everyone else is just jukin' you around and to learn the inside scoop you have to pay to be a member of her site, and she's only taking about a hundred more, then that's it!]

  5. But it's only a one-time $333 payment! No, had never heard of her or her site. I guess not too many people will - only one hundred more! Anytime someone wants to charge me for the truth, I question whether it's the truth they're peddling, or if it's a way to rake in some bucks. She'll be peddling plasma doom when JJFH comes along and snuffs her out. As a wise man named Forrest Gump once said, 'And that's all I've got to say about that!' Heh.
