Event Update For 2020-07-02

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.

2020-07-02 - Raging wildfires in the Arctic spewing record-setting amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, threatening world famous park:

Quote: "Wildfires that have raged in the Arctic Circle since early spring led to a record spike in pollution from the infernos last month. Arctic fires emitted 16.3 million metric tons of carbon — or about 60 million metric tons of carbon dioxide — in June. That’s the highest since at least 2003 and almost nine times more than the same month in 2018, according to data from Europe’s Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service. The previous June record was registered last year, when fires were the worst on record."

2020-07-02 - Chart shows the incredible escalation in Arctic wildfires in the last two years:

Quote: "The years 2019 (yellow bars) and 2020 (red bars) stand like dominant skyscrapers over the average of the previous 16 years (gray bars). 'The two years together is quite alarming,' Thomas Smith, an assistant professor in environmental geography at the London School of Economics, told Mashable in late June. 'I don't use that word lightly.'"

Note: That's the carbon bomb detonating right there. Hasta la vista, Humanity!

    The Plagues Of Iran 2020: While the eyes of the world look away is the hot-headed sycophant, Khamenei about to escalate conflict with Israel which would surely trigger the super-powers toward another world war.

    What took place at the Iranian Natanz nuclear facility in Iran? The incident is the third mysterious explosion in a week and has led to many questions. While the eyes of the world are on Covid-19, the economy, BLM and unemployment, Iran's disastrous year has taken another dangerous step into a conflict with Israel which would surely trigger the super-powers toward another world war.

    The hot-headed sycophant, Khamenei is known for his obsequious hatred of Israel and his unpleasant disrespect for the lives of his own citizens and would bring the whole world to its knees if it meant he could destroy Israel.

    Today, Israel is reportedly bracing for a possible Iranian retaliation as officials in Tehran suggested on Friday that a mystery fire and explosion at a top-secret nuclear complex could have been caused by an Israeli cyberattack. [more]

    US tornado alley goes quiet, Canada's season had roaring start

    A single U.S. outbreak in April produced more tornadoes than May and June combined.

    May's preliminary tornado count of 59, for example, is the lowest in 50 years, while June mustered no more than 50 twisters, the fewest since 1952. The drought is enough to bring 2020 in below average so far, though some parts of the country have had higher than normal tornado activity. [more]

    Déjà vu: GSK recycles its problematic adjuvant into COVID-19 vaccines

    An AS03-containing Covid-19 vaccine would represent, therefore, the first time this type of adjuvant would reach the U.S. general population — children and adults alike. As distinct from GSK's other two adjuvant systems, AS03 is an "oil-in-water emulsion," containing synthetic squalene oil, polysorbate 80 (a synthetic, detergent-like surfactant and emulsifier) and synthetic vitamin E. Though industry researchers dispute it, squalene was flagged as a likely problem in studies of Gulf War Syndrome patients who received squalene-containing vaccines. Likewise, polysorbate 80 has raised concerns due to its deleterious effects on female reproductive organs and cell permeability as well as its propensity for oxidative degradation — a "major quality concern."

    Describing AS03's mechanisms of action in vaccines, GSK researchers have noted that the adjuvant can induce "rapid perturbation" that activates a response called endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. An activated ER stress response has been associated with numerous chronic diseases, and severe ER stress also "threatens proper organ function." Investigators have described an urgent need to study "the consequences of pharmacological interference with ER stress responses." [more]

    Modelers were 'astronomically wrong' in COVID-19 predictions, says epidemiologist Dr. John Ioannidis—and the world is paying the price

    In a wide-ranging interview with Greek Reporter published over the weekend, Ioannidis said emerging data support his prediction that lockdowns would have wide-ranging social consequences and that the mathematical models on which the lockdowns were based were horribly flawed. [more]

    Scientists say WHO ignores the risk that coronavirus floats in air as aerosol

    Six months into a pandemic that has killed over half a million people, more than 200 scientists from around the world are challenging the official view of how the coronavirus spreads.

    The World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintain that you have to worry about only two types of transmission: inhaling respiratory droplets from an infected person in your immediate vicinity or — less common — touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth.

    But other experts contend that the guidance ignores growing evidence that a third pathway also plays a significant role in contagion.

    They say multiple studies demonstrate that particles known as aerosols — microscopic versions of standard respiratory droplets — can hang in the air for long periods and float dozens of feet, making poorly ventilated rooms, buses and other confined spaces dangerous, even when people stay six feet from one another.

    ‘Bunny ebola’ burning through rabbit populations across US. Why experts are worried

    Highly infectious and nearly always fatal, “bunny ebola” is spreading fast across the Southwest, killing wild and domestic rabbits alike in at least seven states, wildlife officials say.

    Rabbit hemorrhagic disease, or RHDV2, isn’t actually related to the Ebola virus, but has earned the name among some animal experts due to similar deadly symptoms, including severe internal bleeding and eventual organ failure, The Cut reported.

    “We still have no idea where it originated,” Ralph Zimmerman, New Mexico state veterinarian, told the Cut. “It’s snowballed and moved like mad.” [more]

    Philippine coast guard searches for bodies of missing fishermen

    The search for 14 people missing after their fishing boat and a cargo ship collided off the Philippines has turned into a retrieval operation with little hope of finding them alive, the coast guard said Friday.

    The vessels crashed last Saturday night in waters southwest of Manila, capsizing the Philippine fishing boat Liberty 5 off the coast of Occidental Mindoro province.

    The crew of the Hong Kong-registered cargo ship MV Vienna Wood has been detained as investigators prepare to lay criminal charges over the incident. [more]

    ExxonMobil's Upstream to Incur Q2 Loss, Refining to Take a Hit

    Exxon Mobil Corporation XOM is expected to incur losses in both upstream and downstream businesses in second-quarter 2020 due to continuing headwinds from the coronavirus pandemic.

    Upstream operations are expected to take a hit of $2.1-$2.5 billion in the second quarter from first-quarter 2020 due to fall in liquids prices. It will likely bear an additional $400-$600 million brunt of declining gas prices. Energy demand destruction caused by coronavirus-induced lockdowns and global supply glut resulted in a significant commodity price fall in the second quarter. [more]

    BBN: Models Indicate More Severe Warming [13.5 min.]

  5. Independence Day my ass. The entire world and its biosphere are all interconnected. We aren't independent politically either - it's myopic thinking. The people in other countries see that our country has become synonymous with sleazy, corrupt and not to be trusted. Ask our own Native tribes and they'll tell how you can't trust the white man. We've been led down the promise path with all the propaganda of fly-overs (what are they spraying us with?), parades and fire-works since we were little. Then all of a sudden we're always at war and think of ourselves as the cops of the world. Might makes right & we used to be the best. Now there's no winning in war and our military isn't even equipped with decent weapons. So much for bravado and swagger.
