Event Update For 2020-08-04

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.

2020-08-04 - Port area devastated by mammoth explosion in coastal Beirut (Lebanon), dozens killed, thousands injured:

Quote: "As journalist Habib Battah notes, the port handles billions of dollars' worth of imports, 'including national wheat silos.'"

Quote: "'Homes shattered for miles,' Battah says. 'Damages will be massive and could not come at worse time when everyone is broke and hungry.' Battah says his 'whole body' was moved by the explosion's shock wave — despite being 10 miles away from the port."

Quote: "The blast near Beirut's port sent up a huge mushroom cloud-shaped shockwave, flipping cars and damaging distant buildings. It was felt as far as Cyprus, hundreds of miles away, and registered as a 3.3 magnitude earthquake in the Lebanese capital."

Quote: "US Embassy in Beirut asks people to wear masks due to reports of toxic gases..."

Note: No idea what toxic gases they're talking about, but this city is on the coast though, so it could be hydrogen sulfide, or some byproduct of the explosion and fire here, or both. From what I gather, what happened here is a fireworks warehouse went up in flames and the fire then spread to a warehouse containing 2750 tons of explosive ammonium nitrate fertilizer, the same stuff Timothy McVeigh used in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. I warned about fireworks facilities exploding and igniting, and this is far from the first. From the full hypothesis: "Ammo depots will be hit with explosions and fires, including the civilian versions like fireworks factories."

If they'd been paying attention to what I'm saying, they wouldn't have put a fireworks facility next to a gigantic pile of ammonium nitrate and they'd still have a city. If they were just minimally rational people, they wouldn't have had a gigantic pile of ammonium nitrate in a highly populated area to begin with either, just as a general principle. The force of this explosion was a little more than 1/7th that of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, or around 1,375 times the force of the explosion that destroyed the Murray Building in Oklahoma City, to give a sense of the scale of this explosion...

  1. Here's one for ya. We got through the tropical storm with just a little water in the basement (through an old window well cover). Took no more than 5 minutes to mop up. Well, yesterday it was a beautiful sunny day, no wind, no precip and BANG, at 4:15 p.m. our power goes out (for like 4.5 hours! WTF!? All around me (including a hospital) was w/o power, so maybe they took everyone off, fixed a blown transformer or something and restarted us by 8:45 p.m. Up and runnin' nah!

    Today's post is indicative of our dire circumstances that will further degrade to the point of uninhabitability (is that even a word?) as we traverse the year.

    Food Prices Rise To Dangerous Levels As “A Second Wave Of Layoffs” Hits The U.S. Economy

    You may have noticed that food prices have started to go up very aggressively. I repeatedly warned my readers that this is precisely what would happen, and more price increases are on the way. Fear of COVID-19 has sparked a tremendous amount of extra demand as Americans have feverishly stocked up their pantries, and at the same time the virus has made it very difficult for the major food companies to keep up. Over the past several months we have seen a large number of food production facilities close down temporarily, food supply chains have been thrown into a state of chaos, and grocery stores have found it increasingly difficult to keep their shelves full. Many years ago I remember sitting in an Econ 101 class as a very young college student, and one of the things that I learned was that prices are going to rise when supply goes down and demand goes up. So it was inevitable that grocery store prices would become more painful, and the latest numbers that have been released by the BEA are definitely quite alarming…

    According to data released last week by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, almost all kinds of food have seen an increase in its price since February. Beef and veal prices are up a staggering 20.2% since before the pandemic, while other staples like eggs (10.4%), poultry (8.6%) and pork (8.5%) have also seen significant increases. [more]

    It's that time of the year again: Fires fueled by strong Mediterranean winds have raced across the Marseille region of France, leaving at least 22 people injured, destroying businesses and forcing the evacuation of 2,700 tourists

    [TOURISTS? You still have tourists?!]

    Fires fueled by strong Mediterranean winds have raced across multiple towns in the Marseille region of France, leaving at least 22 people injured, destroying several businesses and forcing the evacuation of 2,700 tourists, nursing home residents and others. Some 1,800 firefighters, backed by planes and helicopters, battled the worst fire through the night around the town of Martigues. They were still working Wednesday to extinguish it more than 14 hours after it broke out Tuesday, according to the local fire service. Its flames spread quickly from a wooded area toward the sea, eight kilometers (five miles) away, sweeping through residential areas and multiple campgrounds. [more]

    Explosions in North Korea Kill 9 and Injure at least 30

    On August 3, 2020, a gas explosion lit up the sky of Hyesan, Yanggang Province, North Korea, killing 9 and injuring at least 30 residents.

    No fire trucks appeared [to] extinguish the resulting fires, which reportedly raged for one and a half hours.

    A source in the area told Daily NK today that gasoline stored in a house in the city’s Tapsong District somehow ignited at around 6:10 PM. This led to the explosion of a liquid petroleum gas (LPG) cylinder which triggered the explosion of 10 other LPG cylinders attached to nearby houses. [more]

  2. Tropical Storm Isaias Floods Cars and Homes, Spawns Deadly and Destructive Tornadoes and Knocks Out Power to Hundreds of Thousands From the Carolinas Into Virginia and Maryland

    Isaias (pronounced ees-ah-EE-ahs) made landfall at 11:10 p.m. Monday at the South Carolina-North Carolina border as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. It was racing toward the northeast, and tropical storm warnings were raised as far north as Maine. [more; this article details the damage to the south of PA]

    Isaias moves into Canada after lashing much of Eastern U.S. and leaving at least 12 people dead

    Post-tropical cyclone Isaias has moved into southeastern Canada after bringing heavy rains, powerful winds, and multiple tornadoes across much of the Eastern U.S., where more than three million people were affected by widespread power outages and at least nine people died. The storm barreled through the Caribbean, hitting Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, and Florida from July 30 to August 3. It then made a historic landfall in North Carolina on August 4 as the first such storm to touch down in the state since 2011 Irene. At least 1 person died in Puerto Rico and 2 in the Dominican Republic.

    As of 09:00 UTC on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, the storm was located near Lac-Croche in Quebec, packing maximum sustained winds of around 64 km/h (40 mph), moving north-northeast at 45 km/h (28 mph), according to the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center. [more]

    Outbreak of Life-Threatening Nervous System Condition Mostly Affecting Children Expected in 2020 – And Like Corona, Patients Require Intensive Care and Ventilator Support

    This is expected to be another “outbreak year” for a rare but serious neurologic condition.

    Because spikes in confirmed cases of acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, have occurred in the United States every two years since 2014.

    In a Vital Signs report released Tuesday, the CDC noted that 90% of the 238 cases of AFM diagnosed in 2018 – the most recent and largest outbreak of the disease in U.S. history – involved children around 5 years old.

    There is no cure for AFM, and the disease can progress rapidly over the course of hours or days, leading to permanent paralysis and life-threatening respiratory failure in previously healthy patients. [more]

    Beirut attack: Who did it? Mossad did it


    Bottom Line: This type of terrorist operation is how the Zionist leaders of Israel always victimize innocent men, women and children to compel a targeted nation-state to give into their odious and/or insane demands. (Remember 9/11!) However, it is never the people of Israel who are behind these never-ending atrocities; rather, it ‘s the Neocon Zionists who are strategically positioned throughout the Zio-Anglo-American Axis. These perennial terrorists will stop at nothing until their cataclysmic Greater Israel project is completed. [more]

    17.5 million affected, 630 killed by floods in South Asia

    So far almost 17.5 million people have been affected and more than 630 killed by major floods in India, Bangladesh and Nepal according to government figures. Half of Bangladesh's districts are underwater, leaving nearly 1 million families stranded and cut off in their villages. Flooding and landslides in Nepal have left almost 200 people dead or missing. In India, almost 12 million people are affected by the floods mainly in the northern states of Assam and Bihar.

    Feroz Salah Uddin, Secretary General, Bangladesh Red Crescent said: "This is one of the biggest monsoon floods we have faced in many years and the worst may be yet to come as we face growing risks of malaria, dengue, diarrhea as well as this worsening COVID-19 pandemic." [more]

  4. Thousands of hectares of forest in Algeria ravaged by fire - 1,216 wildfires in 2 months

    The country's forestries agency said it had recorded 1,216 fires between June 1 and August 1, destroying some 8,778 hectares, the official APS news agency reported Sunday. On Thursday, Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad set up a monitoring unit to track forest fires and efforts to prevent and control them. The blazes peaked late last month with 66 fires reported on July 27, and civil defence helicopters were called in to extinguish them, the forestry service said.

    Algeria has repeatedly experienced forest fires in recent years, but the results of a 2019 enquiry that sought to establish causes were never released. A study by the geography journal Mediterranee found that a lack of forests and creeping desertification were making the fires particularly disastrous.
