Event Update For 2020-03-03

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. Hey Jonny, everyone - SARS-COV-II (aka Honeybadger Virus, COVID-19, etc.) continues to spread, but we're getting more information (most of it really bad) as to what's going on with it. According to Chris Martenson, there are two distinct types (so far) that the virus has mutated into, denoted the L-type and S-type coronaviruses. One is the old strain, somewhat weaker, and the other is much more virulent. More mutations may still unfold as this progresses.

    The shit is hitting the fan now and before long we'll be overrunning our hospitals because the goddamned CDC and our vaunted "leaders" thought it would be better to keep the FACTS from the general public, continue to spread MISINFORMATION about masks and won't report on active cases (so the public could be warned and stay away from those areas) - PROBABLY at the behest of der Trumpenfuhrer to keep his re-election hopes alive and the economy from tanking.

    What may happen is that this "secretive" nonsense will come back to bite him in the ass as the economy collapses (due to supply chain issues and the lack of a healthy workforce, among other factors) AND our hospitals get overwhelmed so that they can't even take care of NORMAL problems like heart attacks, vehicular accidents, strokes, etc.

    By November, it may become so bad that Trump declares NO ELECTION can take place and that he'll remain dictat- uh, sorry, President until the crisis is over (Nipsy Russell? "R i i i g h t").

    Once a large city or regional area reaches the point of 3,000 infections the hospital system is no longer able to handle the case load and people in critical condition begin to die from lack of access to medical care.

    The situation worldwide has unfolded overnight twice as fast as it did yesterday. This trend will only continue to accelerate. Within the next week, things will be happening so fast that it will no longer be practical to keep up with events in other countries- you will struggle to keep up with what is happening just in your local region.

    10 Years After Deepwater Horizon, Oil Spills and Accidents Are on the Rise

    A Center for American Progress review of government data finds that oil spills, injuries, and accidents from offshore drilling are now on the rise, threatening to erase the progress made in the 10 years since the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

    In late 2017 and 2018, at the direction of an executive order signed by President Donald Trump, the U.S. Department of the Interior began to loosen its oversight of drilling and to weaken safety standards that the Obama administration implemented in response to Deepwater Horizon. [more]

  3. Dr. Oz: HPV vaccine linked to autoimmune events

    The Gardasil vaccine was first approved for the prevention of the human papillomavirus (HPV) in June 2006. It was eventually added to the childhood immunization schedule and recommended to all girls between the ages of 11 and 12. But since then, there have been reports linking Gardasil to autoimmune illnesses.

    I've seen young girls suffer premature ovarian failure, total body hair loss, and arthritis after taking the vaccine.

    Gardasil contains a large amount of aluminum, which is a known neurotoxin and has no business being injected into any living being.

    The Difference Between Worry, Stress and Anxiety

    Worry is what happens when your mind dwells on negative thoughts, uncertain outcomes or things that could go wrong. "Worry tends to be repetitive, obsessive thoughts," said Melanie Greenberg, a clinical psychologist in Mill Valley, Calif., and the author of The Stress-Proof Brain (2017). "It's the cognitive component of anxiety." Simply put, worry happens only in your mind, not in your body.

    Stress is a physiological response connected to an external event. In order for the cycle of stress to begin, there must be a stressor. This is usually some kind of external circumstance, like a work deadline or a scary medical test. "Stress is defined as a reaction to environmental changes or forces that exceed the individual's resources," Dr. Greenberg said.

    If stress and worry are the symptoms, anxiety is the culmination. Anxiety has a cognitive element (worry) and a physiological response (stress), which means that we experience anxiety in both our mind and our body. "In some ways," Dr. Marques said, "anxiety is what happens when you're dealing with a lot of worry and a lot of stress." [more]

    As coronavirus cases continue to rise around the world, a group of Australian experts predict that the economic impact of the disease in the best-case scenario may total $2.4 trillion in lost global gross domestic product.

    A study conducted last month from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention showed that the virus most seriously affected older people with preexisting health problems. The data suggests a person's chances of dying from the disease increase with age. [more]

    Coronavirus lingers in rooms and toilets but disinfectants kill it

    New research from Singapore published Wednesday showed that patients with the novel coronavirus extensively contaminate their bedrooms and bathrooms, underscoring the need to routinely clean high-touch surfaces, basins and toilet bowls.

    Coronavirus is an environmental wake-up call

    In the 1970s, chemist James Lovelock and microbiologist Lynn Margulis developed the Gaia hypothesis; the theory that all organic and inorganic components on the planet are part of one self-regulating system, working to maintain and perpetuate life on earth.

    At the moment, the biggest threats to the delicate balance that makes this planet habitable are human-caused climate change and the destruction of biodiversity. [more]

    After some potent late-winter conditions put southern Ontario right back into the heart of the season, the start of March -- and 'meteorological spring' -- will bring a much more spring-like feel to the region.

    At times, the sun will be shining, the birds may even be chirping, but that does not mean that you should race to the local garage to take off those winter tires.

    This time last year was very different and you might remember what felt like the never ending winter season.

    NJ Gets 2nd Positive COVID-19 Test, Samples Sent to CDC for Confirmation

    New Jersey now has its first 2 presumptive positive cases of the novel coronavirus, New Jersey Acting Governor Sheila Oliver said Thursday.

    The first case is a 32-year-old man from Fort Lee and did test positive for COVID-19, but the sample is being sent to the CDC for official confirmation, the local mayor said. He has been hospitalized since March 3;

    According to sources, the man who tested positive had some type of contact with one of the eleven COVID-19 cases that had been confirmed in New York as of Wednesday. Eleven new cases were confirmed in New York overnight, mostly in Westchester County. It was not immediately clear which of the infected patients he was in contact with, though. New Jersey's Department of Health was tracing individuals who may have had close contact with the man, according to the announcement.

    The man was unaware that he had coronavirus, but two officials tell News 4 it appears he had very limited if any circulation within the community while contagious -- so they're confident there would be little if any person-to-person spread connected to his case. Again, the overall risk is low. [more; unh-hunh...]
