Event Update For 2020-01-26

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.

2020-01-26 - SUV bursts into flame at 11 PM and burns man to death on road near Nawanshahr (India):

Quote: "Naresh Kumar, 35, of Rampur Kalan village, a driver, was charred to death inside the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), a Mahindra Scorpio, after it burst into flames at Roduana village near Nurpur Bedi on Saturday about 11pm. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. Sources said he was returning to his village after attending a wedding at Nalhoti village, when the mishap occurred. Later, it was found that the vehicle had got locked after the fire broke out, and Kumar could not get out."

Quote: "In a horrific incident that took place last night, a man lost his life when his car caught fire on the road. As per the sources, around 11 pm a Scorpio accidentally caught fire on the road near Nawanshahr in which the man sitting inside died on the spot."

2020-01-26 - Passenger plane engine bursts into flame after takeoff, plane returns to airport in Gorgan (Iran):

Quote: "A Tehran-bound passenger plane was forced to return to Gorgan airport in northern Iran, as one of its engines caught fire shortly after takeoff. Footage has emerged allegedly showing the frightening scene."

Quote: "It’s the second aircraft-related incident in Iran just in two days. On Saturday, an Iran Airtour plane made an emergency landing in the country’s capital of Tehran. The aircraft suffered an unspecified technical issue, local media reported, yet was able to land safely and no one on board was hurt."

Note: This is the 10th aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2019...

Quote: "A woman died Sunday at Terwilliger Hot Springs, an Oregon destination known for its scenic soaking pools set in the Cascade Mountain forest. The woman, 25, of Florence, died of a 'medical event' while soaking, according to the Lane County Sheriff’s Office, which responded to the scene."

Quote: "Global emissions for 2019 are predicted to hit 36.8 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), setting yet another all-time record. This disturbing result means emissions have grown by 62% since international climate negotiations began in 1990 to address the problem."

Note: So since we started 'addressing the problem', we've made it 62% worse! Well, like I've said before, maybe this is actually the solution. We race to bring cataclysm upon ourselves as quickly as possible, then we all die and our emissions drop to zero. It's a foolproof emissions-reduction strategy. The upside is complete reduction of emissions, the downside is everybody dies. Pros and cons!

  1. Hey Jonny, Fran, Mike D., Tom N., LL, Terry, FezzedOne and Panther.

    As Mike pointed out last night, we now have a global pandemic on our hands [via Chris Martenson] as multiple problems (natural disasters and others) begin to overwhelm humanity's ability to contain them. This pandemic has the potential to disrupt the global supply chain in any number of ways and in multiple countries. That, then, could trigger the dreaded rise in global average temperature significantly by summer (here in the northern hemisphere) due to the drop in aerosol particulates. On that note, let's start with this:

    Geoengineering 'Plan B'

    Congress Now Funding "Controversial" Geoengineering 'Plan B' To Spray Particles In The Sky To Cool Earth

    It was reported this month that the top climate change scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has received $4 million in funding from Congress along with permission to study two highly controversial geoengineering methods in an attempt to cool the Earth.

    According to Science Magazine, David Fahey, director of the Chemical Sciences Division of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, told his staff last week that the federal government is ready to examine the science behind “geoengineering” - or what he dubbed a “Plan B” for climate change.

    The video is nothing short of an infomercial for chemtrails. It is truly bizarre how this subject has moved from the fringes of conspiracy circles and into the mainstream and no one is even batting an eye. Now that Bill Gates has endorsed and funded it, the world is suddenly open to the idea of attempting to modify the planet’s weather by spraying chemicals into the atmosphere to block out the sun.
    Now, the government is throwing their hat into the mix as well. This “Plan B” approach is two pronged, according to NOAA.

    The idea of geoengineering the planet has become so controversial that the government will soon be referring to it by a different name in a likely attempt to distract. Fahey recommended changing the nomenclature from geoengineering to “climate intervention,” which he described as a “more neutral word.”

    This is exactly like renaming the U.S. Department of War to the Department of Defense.

    As not to be too controversial, however, Fahey emphasized that this is not an approval to begin geoengineering. Rather, it is a move by the US to prepare for the possibility that it may do this one day.

    The extent to which Brennan talked about stratospheric aerosol injection shows that he and the CIA have likely been considering this for some time. [more; many believe this is already happening]

    A Plague Of “Billions” Of Locusts Threatens To Create A Horrific End Times Famine All Over Africa

    Billions of locusts are eating everything in sight in east Africa right now, and every single day many more farms are being completely wiped out. Unfortunately, authorities are telling us that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, if extreme measures are not implemented immediately, authorities are claiming that this locust plague could literally get “500 times” worse in a few months. But it is difficult to imagine conditions getting any worse than they are at this moment. Ravenous locust swarms that are “the size of cities” are consuming crops at a staggering pace, and this could potentially cause famine on the African continent that is unlike anything we have ever seen before.

    A nearly stationary monsoonal low close to the Gulf of Carpentaria is driving very humid air toward Queensland, with heaviest rains in the state's northeast and tropical coast. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has issued several flood warnings on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, as rains inundated streets and prompted school closures. The rains have finally ended months of dry conditions across the state.

    BOM also warned that severe thunderstorms may produce life-threatening flash flooding.

    Rita Island saw 529 mm (21 inches) of rain in 24 hours-- over three months' worth of the area's average January rain in one day. [more]

    The study, published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, detected a pattern that links sea ice decline since the late 1990s with more frequent warm cycles in the Central Pacific Ocean. The surges of ocean heating in that region can disrupt the climate, affecting drought, flood and hurricane patterns around the world. [more]

    Scientists drill into ‘doomsday glacier’ the size of Britain to see if it’s going to collapse

    Teams of scientists are drilling into a huge glacier which has been described as the ‘doomsday glacier’, to find out if it’s about to collapse. [well that'll help it break up!]

    Thwaites Glacier is 74,000 square miles, the size of Great Britain, and is thought to be particularly susceptible to climate change.

    Even now, ice draining from Thwaites into the Amundsen Sea accounts for about four percent of global sea-level rise.

    Over the past 30 years, the amount of ice flowing out of Thwaites and its neighbouring glaciers has nearly doubled.

    A runaway collapse of the Thwaites glacier would lead to a global sea level rise of at least two feet. [more]
