Event Update For 2020-09-03

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.

2020-09-03 - Landfill fire breaks out at 1:30 AM in Logan City (Utah):

2020-09-03 - Wildfire grows to 52,000 acres near Yakima (Washington):

2020-09-03 - Brutal record-shattering heatwave heads to the Bay Area (California):

Quote: "Have you ever been to Phoenix, Arizona, in the summer? It’s about to come to you. A heat wave is poised to break records across the Bay Area and much of the rest of California over Labor Day Weekend, starting Saturday and peaking Sunday with high temperatures forecast to exceed 110 degrees in some areas."

Quote: "Just in time for the Labor Day weekend, the West is being socked with a triple-digit heat wave that comes as many of the traditional escapes are out of reach due to the coronavirus pandemic. 'It’s going to be downright brutal the next few days,' predicted John Feerick, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather."

2020-09-03 - Significant percentage of COVID-infected athletes in the Big Ten, even asymptomatic ones, have heart inflammation:

Quote: "When we looked at our COVID-positive athletes, whether they were symptomatic or not, 30 to roughly 35 percent of their heart muscles are inflamed...and we really just don't know what to do with it right now. It's still very early in the infection. Some of that has led to the Pac-12 and the Big Ten's decision to sort of put a hiatus on what's happening..."

Quote: "On how myocarditis could potentially affect an athlete in the long term, Sebastianelli said they don't yet know about whether this would affect the status of athletes -- making them go from elite to average."

Quote: "What we have seen is when people have been studied with cardiac MRI scans — symptomatic and asymptomatic COVID infections — is a level of inflammation in cardiac muscle that just is alarming..."

Quote: "Myocarditis is usually caused by a viral infection. A severe case can weaken the heart, which can lead to heart failure, abnormal heartbeat, and sudden death."

Note: Yikes, that's scary. If this is the case with young healthy athletes then how bad might it be among the less-healthy general population? A lot of asymptomatic people have probably never been tested, so their hearts could be inflamed right now and they don't even know it. Most people aren't going to be getting cardiac MRIs either - too expensive. These college athletes got them because there are vast amounts of money involved in college sports...

2020-09-03 - Growing number of studies suggest many COVID-19 survivors, even those not hospitalized, experience some type of heart damage:

Quote: "A growing number of studies suggest many COVID-19 survivors experience some type of heart damage, even if they didn't have underlying heart disease and weren't sick enough to be hospitalized."

Quote: "Another JAMA Cardiology study used cardiac MRIs on 100 people who had recovered from COVID-19 within the past two to three months. Researchers found abnormalities in the hearts of 78% of recovered patients and 'ongoing myocardial inflammation' in 60%."

Note: Some of these people may fully recover from the virus itself then die from the heart inflammation caused by the virus. They won't test positive for the virus and so won't be counted as COVID-19 deaths, even though that's what caused the heart inflammation that killed them. Deaths like that would explain why the excess death counts are higher than the COVID-19 death counts. These would be delayed-reaction COVID-19 deaths, but they won't be counted as such because the virus itself is gone so the victims will test negative if they even test the corpses.

There were some videos from the early days of the pandemic in Wuhan showing people, sometimes clutching their chests, suddenly falling down dead, in offices, at markets, on streets. This problem is likely what was killing them - sudden acute myocardial infarctions brought on by myocardial inflammation, sometimes in people who feel okay right up until the minute they become dead. I have to wonder if China didn't know about this problem early on and that's why their lockdowns were so draconian. Obviously no government would want a virus that can transmit AND KILL asymptomatically spreading and becoming endemic in the population.

If that 60% number is correct from the Journal of the American Medical Association study, and 6 million people have been infected in the US, then there could be 3.6 million people suffering from myocarditis. Whatever percent of them have a severe case - 1%? 10%? 25%? - they're at risk of suddenly dying. Their first clue that they have a problem might be the moment that they collapse and die...

    Polio Vaccine Causing Polio Outbreaks in Africa, WHO Admits

    A year ago, news outlets briefly shone a light on the fact (a fact that makes public health officials squirm) that oral polio vaccines are causing polio outbreaks. With reports streaming in throughout 2019 regarding the circulation of vaccine-derived polioviruses in numerous African and Asian countries, a CDC virologist confessed, “We have now created more new emergences of the virus than we have stopped.”

    This week, the same story is making the same headlines, with the WHO’s shamefaced announcement that the oral polio vaccine is responsible for an alarming polio outbreak in Sudan—“linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad”—with parallel outbreaks in a dozen other African countries.

    Signs Of Trouble As We Make The Turn Toward The Fall?

    Over the past several months we have been witnessing one of the most gloriously irrational stock market rallies in U.S. history. Even CNN is admitting that this is “the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes”, but stock prices have just kept going higher and higher until this week. Several months ago the Federal Reserve decided to do whatever it took to rescue the financial markets, and their exceedingly reckless behavior fueled a speculative boom that is unlike anything that we have ever seen before. But now it appears that the boom may be ending. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 807 points on Thursday, and it appears that Friday could be another very challenging day for Wall Street. It is well documented that many of the greatest stock market crashes in history have happened in the fall, and many investors may be trying to bail out before this latest bubble bursts in spectacular fashion.

    Tech stocks have led the way up during this latest rally, and now they could potentially start leading the market back in the other direction. On Thursday, the biggest names in the tech world got hit particularly hard… [more]

    Extreme temperatures around the world

    The unthinkable consequences of global warming

    Humanity is fast reaching our moment of truth. What Hansen, Schellnhuber and others have warned us is based on evidence consistent with the basic laws of science, the discipline which, contrary to medieval superstition, is founded on direct observations, calculations and on reason.

    To elaborate on the nature of the threat humanity and nature are now facing:

    A. The rise in greenhouse gas levels (Figure 1) and temperatures at the Earth surface, rising by more than 1°Celsius since 1880, has been underestimated. [more]

    B. The rise in temperature of large ocean regions, with much of the warming occurring to ~800 meter deep levels, reduces the ocean’s ability to absorb CO₂. This means that more CO₂ is trapped in the atmosphere, causing further warming. Also, as ocean temperatures rise, the oceans are depleted in oxygen, which leads to increased production of methane and hydrogen sulphide, which are poisonous to marine life.

    C. Models projecting global warming as a linear trajectory, as outlined by the International panel of Climate Change (IPCC), take only limited account of the weakening of climate zone boundaries, as temperatures rise in the polar regions, notably the circum-Arctic jet stream. [more]

    D. An estimated 1,400 billion tons (400 GTC) of carbon is embedded in the world’s permafrost, mostly in the Arctic and sub-Arctic, from where large amounts of carbon are released under the fast warming conditions. [more]

    E. The 2019-2010 wildfires in Australia have unleashed about 900 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which is equivalent to nearly double the country's total yearly fossil fuel emissions. As the planet warms, wildfires become more frequent and accelerate the warming process.

    F. Sea level rise will flood the very regions where civilization has emerged, low river valleys, delta and coastal planes, which are also vital to food production. This is estimated to displace 100 million people initially, and more over time as major coastal cities are flooded.

    G. The rising energy levels in warming regions of the Earth, notably tropical island chains such as the Caribbean and the Philippines, generate devastating tropical storms known as cyclones and typhoons. These wreak havoc on coastal regions of southeast North America, India, southern Africa, the Pacific and Australia.

    H. Rising heat levels in tropical, subtropical and intermediate Mediterranean climate zones may render large areas unsuitable for agriculture and are physiologically difficult for humans to live in as “heat bulb” conditions set in. [more; article continues]
