Event Update For 2020-02-16

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.

2020-02-16 - China destroying cash from areas most affected by the coronavirus, other areas to disinfect cash:

Quote: "China’s central bank says it plans to destroy most of the banknotes collected by hospitals, markets, and buses in some regions hard hit by the new coronavirus. Fan Yifei, deputy governor of the Chinese central bank, said they plan to out pump 600 billion yuan ($85.6 billion) of freshly printed paper currency to replace the bills taken out of circulation."

Quote: "In other areas of the country, the government has ordered banks to remove incoming paper currency from circulation and replace it with the new cash. They have been directed to keep the cash under quarantine for 14 days and disinfect it at high temperatures and with ultraviolet light before returning it to the public."

Note: So they're destroying a lot of money and the rest will have to be quarantined and sterilized for 14 days. This is another one of those examples where it's best to pay attention to what they do, not what they say. I've never heard of any government destroying vast amounts of cash because of an outbreak before, not for pneumonic plague outbreaks, not for the Spanish Flu of 1918, not for SARS, not for MERS, not for anything. I'm not saying it's a bad idea and that they shouldn't do it. I'm saying that the actions they are taking are the kind of unprecedented actions you might expect to see a nation take to combat a veritable doomsday virus, not some virus no more dangerous than the flu...

Quote: "According to the version offered by the group, testimonies from the neighbors of the area where the birds were found talked about the area emitting 'strong smells.'"

Quote: "This February 17, as reported by El Periódico de Cataluña, the Department of Rural Agents of Catalonia said that the poisoning of animals does not seem a probable cause because the birds 'were concentrated in a very specific place on the road' and because there was no more affected fauna in the surroundings."

Note: Sounds VERY much like poisoning. Birds are more susceptible to poison gases than most animals due to their high respiration rate and low body mass, thus the use of canaries in coal mines as detectors of carbon monoxide and methane. Strong smell, pile of dead birds, on the coast. A chemical plant exploded and burned in Tarragona the month before too, mentioned in the 2020-01-14 update...

    Coronavirus update from Chris Martenson

    Coronavirus: Is the Puzzling Silence From Officials The Calm Before The Storm? [~ 39.5 min.]

    Shocking New Study Says The Coronavirus “Could Impact More Than 5 Million Businesses Worldwide”

    When was the last time that we witnessed a disaster that severely disrupted the supply chains of over 5 million companies around the globe simultaneously? Looking back over the past couple of decades, I can’t think of one. In recent days I have written a number of articles about the economic impact of this coronavirus outbreak, and what we have seen so far could be just the beginning. With each additional week that much of the Chinese economy remains at a virtual standstill, things are going to get even worse. Today, China accounts for approximately 20 percent of global GDP, but that doesn’t tell the entire story. At this point the rest of the world has become so dependent on Chinese exports that any sort of an extended shutdown for Chinese manufacturing would be a complete and utter nightmare for global supply chains. In fact, a brand new study that was just released by Dun & Bradstreet has concluded that the coronavirus outbreak in China “could impact more than 5 million businesses worldwide”…

    Covid-19: Day 50: Feb 18th: Almost 150,000 infected and nearly 30,000 dead Prof, Neil Ferguson: Outbreak in the U.S? 1,000 cases in the US infected with the coronavirus in 32 states: Locust plague reach coronavirus-hit China

    Coronavirus Reaches Day 50: Worldwide Statistics: New confirmed cases yesterday 1,888: Total confirmed cases overall 73, 333, (146,666 using Prof Neil Ferguson's estimates). Suspected cases 7,264: Total deaths, 1,873, (27,460 using Prof, Neil Ferguson's estimates). Prof, Neil Ferguson, leading coronavirus investigator in the UK estimates the official death rate should be around 20% higher than is being released because only severely infected people are being treated in China.

    They Escaped an Infected Ship, but the Flight Home Was No Haven

    The ground rules were clear. A day before 328 Americans were to be whisked away from a contaminated cruise ship in Japan, the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo told passengers that no one infected with the coronavirus would be allowed to board charter flights to the United States.

    U.S. officials, it turned out, had started bringing the passengers home without actually knowing their test results. But because the evacuation had already begun by the time Japanese officials relayed those results, officials decided to let the infected evacuees, who were not yet exhibiting symptoms, board the planes and sit in the back, separated from other passengers by plastic sheets about 10-feet-tall. [more]

    Countries around the world are now struggling to figure out what to do with cruise ships during the coronavirus outbreak.
    [SINK THEM! no, just kidding]

    After landing, the 14 infected evacuees went to hospitals for monitoring and treatment.

    America’s 'recycled' plastic waste is clogging landfills, survey finds

    Many plastic items that Americans put in their recycling bins aren’t being recycled at all, according to a major new survey of hundreds of recycling facilities across the US.

    The research, conducted by Greenpeace and released on Tuesday, found that out of 367 recycling recovery facilities surveyed none could process coffee pods, fewer than 15% accepted plastic clamshells – such as those used to package fruit, salad or baked goods – and only a tiny percentage took plates, cups, bags and trays.

    The findings confirm the results of a Guardian investigation last year, which revealed that numerous types of plastics are being sent straight to landfill in the wake of China’s crackdown on US recycling exports. Greenpeace’s findings also suggest that numerous products labeled as recyclable in fact have virtually no market as new products. [more]

    the Grup d'Estudi i Protecció dels Ecosistemes Catalans-Ecologistes de Catalunya (GEPEC) who believe that the deaths of the starlings may have been caused by a chemical leak in the atmosphere or mass poisoning. They also detail that from speaking to residents in the area that they reported "strong chemical smells in the air."

    The police have however put forward a different explanation, citing that the birds must have been killed as a result of flying low. [more; bullshit explanation]

  5. Death toll rises to 14 from unknown gas, hundreds more sickened, near port in coastal Karachi (Pakistan):

    Quote: "Sundus Rasheed, who lives in Karachi's seaside neighborhood of Kemari, told CNN that residents were panicking. 'At around 10 p.m. (12 p.m. ET) on Sunday, we got a call that there had been some sort of gas leak and people are dying. Hordes of people [were] coming with their faces covered, ambulances rushing towards the port. Our car windows were rolled up but eyes were irritated and burning; something is clearly wrong. We've evacuated our home,' Rasheed said. Images from Karachi show small protests against the government, with demonstrators wearing face masks and demanding answers from officials."

    Quote: "Karachi officials have said they cannot find any evidence of a leak."

    Not a gas leak, or at least they can't find any evidence of a leak. So just some unknown deadly gas killing and sickening people near the ocean in Karachi. Hydrogen sulfide is an eye irritant.

  6. Many deadly vectors are combining against life now. Some, probably most, are specifically threatening humanity.
    Global warming underlies it all, but before that, our burgeoning population was the catalyst. It's fascinating to
    search for the exact spot in our long history where we, as a species, became
    divorced from nature, so to speak.

    At this point I'm profoundly disappointed in our species: from our complete lack of respect for our home,
    the hubris we've developed from our supposed cleverness, our failure to recognize our effects on the planet, and the utter disregard we display to all other species. We turned the planet into a dump and in the process, (what a surprise) it's fast becoming uninhabitable.

    Rather than go into a long disgruntled rant, I'll just sigh, let it go and enjoy the moments I have left.

    See ya tomorrow, Jonny. Thanks for discovering that we're on our way out via the noxious/explosive gases from ancient times, that keep revisiting us throughout our long journey and which wipe us off the stage when the Earth has had enough.
