Event Update For 2020-04-07

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.

2020-04-07 - Scientists report unprecedented bleaching event in the Great Barrier Reef:

Quote: "Surveys conducted by scientists at Australia’s James Cook University and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority show that a summer of extreme heat has caused the reef, which is a World Heritage Site, to suffer a mass bleaching of unprecedented scale. Corals from the far north to the southern tip of the 1,400 mile-long ecosystem are experiencing severe impacts."

Quote: "This year, corals from the north to south have been negatively affected. Scientists agreed this indicates the reef is growing closer to annual bleaching events."

  1. Good morning Jonny, Fran, Mike D., Tom N., LL, Terry, FezzedOne and Panther. Welcome to anyone else reading JJFH today.

    Though i believe it's a bit premature, many are talking about "coming out" of this pandemic already - what's going to have to happen to adjust going forward, with local, regional and national implications.

    To begin with, any "recovery" will be disjointed as some countries were only mildly affected by the pandemic (or only had a small number of cases) and others were late to get a handle on it and/or are much larger. The global supply chain has been interrupted in many areas - shipping, labor and resources to name a few - and will take time to either re-establish itself or become more localized. There are so many weak points that this virus exposed, it'll take a while to face them all. Martenson's latest is a panel discussion about this topic.

    Oxidative stress, linked to radiofrequency radiation obesity diets processed foods, smoking, alcohol consumption, medications, pollution, exposure to pesticides or industrial chemicals: Modern living behind the Coronavirus outbreak!

    This week mobile masts were set on fire in the parts of the UK amid conspiracy theories claiming a link between 5G and coronavirus. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport was quick to calm the incidents by claiming, "there is absolutely no credible evidence" of a link between 5G and Covid-19. Actually, there is evidence and a worrying connection.

    People are living in the 21st century with suppressed immune systems due to a medical term called 'Oxidative stress,' which is linked to radiofrequency radiation, obesity diets rich in fat and sugar, processed foods, smoking, alcohol consumption, medications, pollution, exposure to pesticides or industrial chemicals, in other words, modern life.

    There has been much speculation around the world claiming a link between 5G and the coronavirus, while governments and the media have been quick to dispel such claims as not true, there is a connection, according to an NCBI report low doses of charged particles causes acute and persistent oxidative stress which can lead to cell and tissue damage damaging proteins, and DNA and suppressing immune systems.

    Exposure to radiation causes oxidative stress, which affects the body and shred strands of DNA in the unsuspecting population. [more]

    Birx says government is classifying all deaths of patients with coronavirus as 'COVID-19' deaths, regardless of cause

    The federal government is classifying the deaths of patients infected with the coronavirus as COVID-19 deaths, regardless of any underlying health issues that could have contributed to the loss of someone's life.

    "There are other countries that if you had a pre-existing condition, and let's say the virus caused you to go to the ICU [intensive care unit] and then have a heart or kidney problem," she said during a Tuesday news briefing at the White House. "Some countries are recording that as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death.[more]

    Coronavirus: low antibody levels raise questions about reinfection risk

    Researchers in Shanghai hope to determine whether some recovered coronavirus patients have a higher risk of reinfection after finding surprisingly low levels of Covid-19 antibodies in a number of people discharged from hospital.

    A team from Fudan University analysed blood samples from 175 patients discharged from the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Centre and found that nearly a third had unexpectedly low levels of antibodies. [more; incl. ~ 3 min. video]

    ALERT: Less than 1% of US population infected with coronavirus so far, new research finds, meaning FIVE MILLION Americans would have to die to achieve “herd immunity”

    Comprehensive new research conducted by Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London has derived very reliable estimates of what percent of the population has been infected with coronavirus in each of 11 European countries. From these numbers, we can easily calculate that the case fatality rate from coronavirus infections is at least twenty times higher than the seasonal flu. We can also conclude that at least five million Americans would have to die in order to achieve “herd immunity” (see full calculations below). [more]


    Passengers on Antarctic cruise ship to be evacuated after almost 60% test positive for COVID-19; Americans and Europeans must stay on board

    Australian and New Zealand passengers will be evacuated from a stricken Antarctic cruise ship Thursday, after almost 60% of those on board tested positive for the coronavirus.

    The Greg Mortimer, a cruise liner operated by Australia’s Aurora Expeditions, departed March 15 on a voyage to Antarctica and South Georgia. Since the beginning of April, however, the ship has been stuck off the coast of Uruguay, after authorities refused to allow passengers to disembark due to the risk of coronavirus.

    Of the 217 people on board, 128 passengers and crew have now tested positive for the virus. [more; people still go on cruises?]

    Unchecked Global Warming Could Collapse Whole Ecosystems, Maybe Within 10 Years

    A new study shows that as rising heat drives some key species extinct, it will affect other species, as well, in a domino effect. [co-extinction mentioned by McPherson a while back]

    Global warming is about to tear big holes into Earth's delicate web of life, pushing temperatures beyond the tolerance of thousands of animals at the same time. As some key species go extinct, entire ecosystems like coral reefs and forests will crumble, and some will collapse abruptly, starting as soon as this decade, a new study in the journal Nature warns.

    Trump EPA’s ‘Secret Science’ Rule Would Dismiss Studies That Could Hold Clues to Covid-19

    The rule would disqualify some of the most valuable health science, critics say.

    In 2018, scientists published a study showing that doctor visits for respiratory infections increased with the air pollution that periodically settled into the urban valleys of northern Utah—research that could prove relevant as researchers try to unlock the mysteries of Covid-19.

    But if the Trump administration succeeds in finalizing a new rule that would place limits on the science used by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Utah study is exactly the kind of research that would be given less weight—or possibly ignored—in future U.S. environmental decision-making.

    Giant Ocean Creature Found Hundreds of Meters Underwater Off Australian Coast

    A giant ocean creature in the Ningaloo Canyons, off the coast of Western Australia, was discovered during an expedition by the Schmidt Ocean Institute (SCI), with a video of the specimen shared on their Twitter account on April 6.

    The organism, known as siphonophore Apolemia, was spotted by the SCI’s expedition ship RV Falkor. By using their remotely operated vehicle SuBastian, the crew was able to film the siphonophore at a depth of 631 meters underwater. The SCI tweeted that the specimen was “likely…the largest ever recorded, and in a strange UFO feeding posture”.

    The siphonophore is a jelly species. Although it may resemble one long string-like creature, it is a colony of tiny organisms called zooids. According to the SCI, the outer ring of the one filmed by the RV Falkor was estimated to be 47 meters (154 feet). [short videos]
