Event Update For 2020-03-20

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.

    Climate shocks in just one country could disrupt global food supply

    Catastrophic crop failures caused by extreme weather in just one country could disrupt global food supplies and drive price spikes in an interconnected world, exposing how climate change threatens global stability, researchers said on Friday.

    Based on two models of how countries could try to meet their needs, an international research team found the United States would deplete nearly all its wheat reserves after four years in both scenarios, while global stocks could drop by 31%.

    The 174 countries to which America exports wheat would see their reserves decrease, even though they did not themselves suffer failed harvests, according to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems.

    “It affects almost every country in the world because the U.S. has so many trade links,” said lead author Alison Heslin, a researcher at Columbia University’s Center for Climate Systems Research and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.[more]

    Detention without trial in the USA

    In Sweeping Power Grab, DOJ Seeks Ability To Detain People Indefinitely Without Trial {Kevin mentions this on BBN]

    In a sweeping power grab, the Department of Justice has asked Congress for the ability to go directly to chief judges in order to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies.

    Politico notes that the requests are unlikely to make it through the Democratic-controlled House.

    The proposed changes have raised concerns over the implications for habeas corpus - the right to appear before a judge and seek release. [more; thought that ended under Bush]

  2. Epidemic Computer Models Show ONLY COMPLETE SHUT DOWN for 18 Months Can stop Virus [Hal Turner]

    A Report by the Imperial College of London says millions of us will die and that health systems will be overwhelmed by Coronavirus, WITHIN 3 MONTHS. To mitigate the disaster of this outbreak, new measures need to go into place immediately. 18 Months SHUTDOWN!

    But here’s the catch: if we EVER relax suppression before a vaccine is administered to the entire population, COVID-19 comes right back and kills millions of Americans in a few months, the same as before. [more; so MANDATORY (Gates) vaccine (now with micro-chip!) as the end result!]

    And So It Begins . . . Man Drops Dead on NYC Subway - Coronavirus [also from Hal Turner]

    A passenger on a New York City Subway Train got up off the bench seat . . . and dropped dead. Witnesses said the man was wheezing terribly before collapsing.

    NYPD Officers who responded DID NOT WEAR FILTER MASKS! ! ! !
    This type of incident, with people simply dropping dead in public, was seen in Wuhan, China, at the beginning of it's coronavirus outbreak. Many more such incidents took place in Wuhan and videos from nearby witnesses were uploaded to social media every day until the Chinese Communist Party shut off Internet access.

    It is not yet known if closet-Commies infesting the United States will attempt such an Internet shutdown.
    The fact this is now taking place in New York City does not bode well for the rest of America. What's taking place here is, sadly, likely to come to YOUR neighborhood as well. [and]

    As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads, we are beginning to see stark numbers of infection and death – particularly in New York City.

    Exclusive: Inside The Military's Top Secret Plans If Coronavirus Cripples the Government

    Even as President Trump says he tested negative for coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic raises the fear that huge swaths of the executive branch or even Congress and the Supreme Court could also be disabled, forcing the implementation of "continuity of government" plans that include evacuating Washington and "devolving" leadership to second-tier officials in remote and quarantined locations.

    But Coronavirus is also new territory, where the military itself is vulnerable and the disaster scenarios being contemplated -- including the possibility of widespread domestic violence as a result of food shortages -- are forcing planners to look at what are called "extraordinary circumstances".

    Above-Top Secret contingency plans already exist for what the military is supposed to do if all the Constitutional successors are incapacitated. Standby orders were issued more than three weeks ago to ready these plans, not just to protect Washington but also to prepare for the possibility of some form of martial law. [more]

    Series of damaging earthquakes hit capital Zagreb, Croatia - the strongest since 1880

    Several moderately strong and shallow earthquakes shook Croatian capital Zagreb early Sunday morning (LT), March 22, 2020. EMSC registered the strongest ones as M5.3 at 05:39 UTC and M5.0 at 06:17 UTC. Both quakes were registered at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles). The USGS registered the strongest one as M5.4 at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).

    Croatian Geophysical Institute is reporting the strongest one as M5.5, making it the largest earthquake to hit Zagreb since 1880 (M6.3).

    Widespread damage was reported across the capital and nearby cities.

    Ron Paul: The Coronavirus Hoax

    Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act's hollow promises of security.

    State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state. [more]

    'Pulsing' of Yellowstone volcano is increasing due to trapped magma below

    The Norris Geyser Basin, the oldest, hottest and most dynamic thermal area in the park, was observed to rise 5.9 inches each year from 2013 to 2015 - an unusual event that left researchers baffled.

    This is the first time the scientific community has been able to track an entire episode of magma intrusion, which they say is a common occurrence throughout Yellowstone.

    At 3,472 square miles, the park is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.

    The uplift at Norris Geyser first began in 1996, but came to halt between 2013 and 2014 after a magnitude 4.9 earthquake struck the area.

    Following the natural event, the ground started to sink back to its natural depth.

    However, data shows that the rise began again in 2016 and continued two years after - researches believe it has paused for now. [more]

    Heavy rains flood parts of Ohio, stranding residents

    At least three inches of rain fell in the region overnight and early on Friday, flooding roadways and overwhelming waterways when the ground — already saturated from previous rains — could not hold it all, according to Kathleen Fuller, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Transportation.

    Around 5:45 a.m. on Friday, a man escaped from his S.U.V. before it washed into an inundated culvert under State Route 79 and became lodged there, said Morgan Overbey, a Transportation Department spokeswoman in Licking County. The collapse of a portion of the route, near the city of Heath, created a chasm up to 17 feet deep of roaring water, she said.

    Coronavirus' death rate found to be lower than World Health Organization estimates

    At the beginning of March, the WHO announced the virus had killed 3.4% of patients worldwide, which other experts called a likely “overestimate”. [China lies, U.S. lies, Iran lies]

    To learn more, scientists from The University of Hong Kong looked at the 48,557 confirmed cases that had arisen as of 29 February in the Chinese city Wuhan, where the outbreak emerged.

    They found the average death rate among patients under 30 was 0.3%, rising to 0.5% for those between 30 and 59, and 2.6% for people aged 60 or above.

    Overall, they calculated the fatality rate to be 1.4%.

    Although “promising”, experts have stressed estimating death rates in the midst of an outbreak is “fraught with difficulties”. [more; especially when you can't trust the #s!]

    Italian doctor who warned of medical supply shortages to fight coronavirus has now died from the disease
