Event Update For 2020-02-08

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.

    Even The Mainstream Media Is Now Admitting That Humanity Is Facing “A Perfect Storm”

    Over the last several decades, have we ever seen a year start as strangely as 2020 has? Global weather patterns have gone completely nuts, large earthquakes are popping off like firecrackers, it looks like the plague of locusts in Africa could soon develop into the worst in modern history, and a massive plague of bats is severely terrorizing parts of Australia. On top of all that, African Swine Fever is wiping out millions upon millions of pigs around the globe, the H1N1 Swine Flu is killing people in Taiwan, there have been H5N1 Bird Flu outbreaks in China and in India, and the H5N8 Bird Flu has made an appearance at a poultry facility in Saudi Arabia. Of course the coronavirus outbreak which is causing people to literally drop dead in the streets in China is making more headlines than anything that I have mentioned so far, and it could potentially turn into a horrifying global pandemic that kills millions of people.

    Nigeria warns over mystery disease which has left 15 dead and infected dozens more

    The Nigerian government has warned of a “strange epidemic” which has left 15 people dead and infected dozens more in less than a week.

    The outbreak of the mysterious disease, which causes vomiting, swelling and diarrhoea, was first recorded late last month in Benue State, southeast of the capital Abuja.

    By 3 February, “the number of persons affected with the strange endemic has risen to 104”, said Nigerian senator Abba Moro, according to newspaper the Daily Post.

    In a Senate resolution, Mr Moro, who represents a district in Benue State, named a number of victims of the disease, who all allegedly died within 48 hours of contracting the illness.

    COVERT INTEL: New Vector of Coronavirus; Cannot Be Stopped from Spreading

    U.S. Intelligence has now confirmed a devastating fact about the Coronavirus outbreak in China.

    The virus is not only shed by breathing, coughing, and sneezing, it also comes out in urine but more so via fecal matter.

    That fecal matter goes into a toilet, which gets flushed, sending the waste into the public, sanitary sewer system.

    Once in the sewers, normal flow in the sewer moves the waste toward a treatment plant, MILES away. Along he way, there are manhole covers.

    Evaporation allows the virus to rise-up OUT OF THE MANHOLE COVERS and into the fresh air.

    So an infected person takes a dump at one end of town, flushes his toilet, and the virus in his feces evaporates out a manhole cover on the other end of town.

    This is why big cities are seeing "blooms" of virus outbreak in unrelated areas.

    UPDATE 5:54 PM EST --

    The Chinese economy will ***NOT*** resume work tomorrow as previously scheduled. Factories and other businesses are to REMAIN CLOSED until further notice which gov't sources claim will be "at least another two weeks."

    Severe supply-chain disruption is going to take place. Just-in-time inventories are almost gone. Layoffs and temporary closures in the USA and in Europe will be forced to take place beginning this week.

    Companies, unable to manufacture, will likely be unable to service corporate debt. Defaults are now "highly probable."

    The stock markets are going to react very VERY badly to this chain of events, perhaps as early as tomorrow (Monday, February 10)

    Conservationists attacked in refuge for Mexican porpoise

    Conservationists on a Sea Shepherd vessel out to protect the endangered vaquita porpoise came under gun fire in the upper Gulf of California over the weekend by men in small boats.

    The confrontation took place Saturday in what is known as the “critical zone” of an area designated as a refuge for the vaquita because several of the porpoises have been sighted there.

    Officials from the Mexican navy, federal police and Mexican environmental protection agency were also onboard the M/V Sharpie.

    According to Sea Shepherd, four skiffs known locally as pangas approached the Sharpie and began to chase the vessel at full speed, swerving in front and around the ship.

    The captain carried out anti-piracy procedures, including the use of water cannons and other anti-boarding techniques. At least two shots fired from the skiffs landed in the water near the Sea Shepherd vessel, which was not hit during the incident.

    Sea Shepherd said no injuries occurred.

    “This just shows how aggressive the poachers are here. It proves to us that they are armed and that we need to take every panga that we come across seriously, because we have no idea what they are capable of,” said Jacqueline Le Duc, Captain of the M/V Sharpie. [more]

  6. ‘Puzzling’ virus of UNKNOWN origin with genes scientists can’t identify discovered in Brazil

    Scientists in Brazil have discovered a virus which appears to be almost entirely new, consisting of unrecognizable genes that have been, until now, undocumented.
    The Yaravirus (Yaravirus brasiliensis), named after a water deity in Brazilian mythology and folklore, was discovered in Lake Pampulha in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte.

    90 percent of the genes in the Yaravirus have never been described before in public scientific databases and literature.

    Rather worryingly, the researchers conclude that the amount of unknown proteins within the Yaravirus throws open the door to a whole other world of as-yet-undiscovered viruses we know little to nothing about. [more]
