Event Update For 2020-08-21

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.

2020-08-21 - With more than 170,000 deaths, COVID-19 becomes third-leading cause of death in the US:

Quote: "More than 170,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the United States since the pandemic began, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, making it the third-leading cause of death in the country, former Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thomas Frieden, MD, told CNN."

Note: Deaths aside, of those people hospitalized for COVID-19, a significant percentage have serious long-term medical problems, including lung damage severe enough to require lung transplants, unknown amounts of brain damage, strokes causing complete paralysis, and amputations of limbs (especially feet and legs but sometimes fingers or hands) due to blood flow problems. Considering how many people have been hospitalized, COVID-19 may end up being much worse than polio, which at its worst paralyzed 15,000 people per year. And while an effective vaccine was able to completely eradicate polio from the US by 1979, there's no certainty that there will ever be a vaccine for COVID-19 or if there is that it will be remotely as effective as the polio vaccine. Ergo, the lung damage, brain damage, loss of limbs and paralysis that many COVID-19 survivors experience may simply remain an ongoing threat as long as the virus is circulating...


  1. Good morning Jonny, all. There are record-breaking fires in CA with toxic smoke wafting through the air day and night. I'll be out there by noon on Monday to help out my youngest and his family through this week. It's not that hot there (70s) but it will once again be hot here (after a 3 day break where it was only in the 80s). Today 92, Mon. 94 and Tues. 96 forecast for here in s/e PA.

    [Here's the fire situation where i'll be (see map for River, Carmel, and Dolan Fires where Carmel River meets the Pacific)]

    Sea level rise quickens as Greenland ice sheet sheds record amount

On top of a devastating coronavirus which is infecting more than a quarter-of-a-million people a day and has almost killed a million people in the first 8 months of this year, however, without question the most destructive force of 2020 has been the weather and because of the Covid-19 stealing the media headlines many of the weather disasters this year have not been reported on.

    He Vanished on a Montana Boat Trip. His Family Is Haunted by Questions.

    Four weeks ago, a college basketball player, on a lake trip with his girlfriend and her family and friends in Montana, went over the side of the boat and vanished in 140-foot-deep water.

    The disappearance and presumed drowning of Mamadou N’Diaye left his family of African immigrants in grief and confusion; his girlfriend, who is white, fending off demands for answers and accusations of racism; and police, who labeled the incident a tragic accident, searching for the body.

    On Friday, at least one matter was resolved when authorities revealed that a private rescue organization searching Lake Koocanusa had pinpointed what looked like a body on sonar and hours later had recovered the 18-year-old’s remains.

    But the family says there are still loose ends. [more]

    Iran says black boxes from downed Ukraine jet show missiles hit 25 seconds apart

    Analysis from the black boxes of a downed Ukrainian passenger plane shows it was hit by two missiles 25 seconds apart and that passengers were still alive for some time after the impact of the first blast, Iran said on Sunday.

    The announcement by the head of Iran's Civil Aviation Organization marks the first official report on the contents of the cockpit voice and data recordings, which were sent to France for reading in July.

    Coca-Cola or 'bottled poison'? Mexico finds a COVID-19 villain in big soda

    While touring southern Chiapas state last month, Mexico’s coronavirus czar took aim at a local vice he considers culpable for the country’s ongoing pandemic problems: rampant Coca-Cola consumption.

    Health undersecretary Hugo López-Gatell connected soda consumption with COVID-19 deaths, blaming sugar for causing comorbidities such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension – maladies common in Mexico, where almost three-quarters of the population is overweight, according to a study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

    “Why do we need bottled poison in soft drinks?” López-Gatell asked. “Health in Mexico would be very different if we stopped being deceived by these lifestyles sold on television and heard on radio and which we see on adverts – as if this was happiness.” [more; mind-control]
