Event Update For 2020-09-30

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.

    At least 40 dead and 2 million tons of rice destroyed as Jigawa sees worst flood in 32 years, Nigeria

    At least 40 people have lost their lives and more than 2 million tons of rice crops - a quarter of the country's projected harvest - have been lost as northwestern Nigerian state Jigawa reels from its worst flood in 32 years, according to the Jigawa State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).

    Donald Trump Tests Positive For COVID—And America’s Nuclear Doomsday Planes Launch

    It could be no accident that E-6s were airborne over both coasts in the minutes before Trump’s announcement that he was infected. “I would expect them to pop up if he tests positive,” tweeted Tim Hogan, an American open-source intelligence practitioner.

    Hogan tracked the E-6s on public software that registers airplanes’ radio transponders. Military planes often switch off their transponders in order to avoid being tracked. If a military jet’s transponders are on, it’s because their crews want to be seen.

    In the case of the E-6s, “it's a message to the small group of adversaries with SLBMs and ICBMs,” Hogan noted. The Pentagon apparently wants atomic-armed rivals of the United States—Russia, China and North Korea—to know that America’s nuclear command system is intact, even if the commander-in-chief might be sick.

    Many people catch the novel coronavirus but never suffer adverse effects or even show symptoms. While Trump has said he’s infected, it’s unclear whether he’s actually sick. “Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties while recovering,” stated Sean Conley, Trump’s official physician.

    Former coal magnate who battled mining health rules files for black lung benefits

    A former coal magnate who fought mining health rules has reportedly filed for federal black lung benefits.

    Here's How Joe Biden Plans to Tackle Climate Change

    [Biden couldn't tackle a rag doll - he's not going to impinge on the fossil fuel parade, including fracking; gave up on the Green New Deal that was his party's idea; and instead sets his sights on vague goals of "achieving a 100 percent clean-energy economy and net-zero emissions by the year 2050," which we know is ridiculous and just kicks the can down the road again]

    His plan, which would cost $2 trillion over four years, also calls for making the power sector carbon pollution-free by 2035, revolutionizing the railroad system and municipal transit networks, initiating the construction of 1.5 million sustainable homes and housing units, creating net-zero emissions standard for all new commercial buildings by 2030, and reforming and extending tax incentives in order to generate energy efficiency and clean energy jobs.

    To pay for this, Biden will increase the corporate income tax rate to 28 percent from 21 percent and use some still-undetermined amount of stimulus money, according to The New York Times. [more; sure, Joe]

    The Road to Greener Concrete Is Paved With Clay

    It’s hard to overstate the importance of cleaning up the cement industry. Humans consume as much cement as food—4 billion tons per year—and producing it accounts for about 7% of global carbon emissions. Cutting that will take myriad small steps, from reducing the carbon output of cement plants to revising regulations so they more realistically account for the structural needs of buildings. By some estimates, global cement consumption could be cut in half simply by employing the right cement for each job and not pouring more concrete than necessary.

    Coronavirus detected in lake water, researchers find. Experts say don't panic.

    The virus was detected by a group led by Richard Melvin, an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Minnesota Medical School, in mid-September. Melvin and his team have been sampling water from various beaches on Lake Superior since July 4 on a weekly basis as a partnership with Minnesota Sea Grant, an organization that works to enhance the state’s coastal environment. The team hadn’t found the virus during weekly tests, but, on Sept. 11, that changed.

    The research team detected SARS-CoV-2 at 100 to 1,000 copies per liter, or 10,000 times lower than levels observed in wastewater. [what are they using to "test" this? Is it the same bullshit PCR test they use on people?]

    finding the virus in water “doesn’t mean that they’re infection particles,” Dr. Thomas Russo, professor and chief of infectious disease at the University at Buffalo, tells Yahoo Life. “It’s highly unlikely that SARS-CoV-2 can survive in a body of water for very long,” he says.

    Is Gamma on the way? Tropical wave in Caribbean would be season's 24th storm

  4. New Study Shows a Vicious Circle of Climate Change Building on Thickening Layers of Warm Ocean Water

    Near the surface of the ocean, global warming is creating increasingly distinct layers of warm water that stifle seawater circulations critical for regulating climate and sustaining marine life. The sheets of warm water block flows of heat, carbon, oxygen and nutrients within the water column, and between the oceans and atmosphere.

    A new study shows more heat is building up in the upper 600 feet of the ocean than deeper down. That increasingly distinct warm layer on the surface can intensify tropical storms, disrupt fisheries, interfere with the ocean absorption of carbon and deplete oxygen, Michael Mann, a [lying sack of shit] climate scientist at Penn State, said.

    A Swarm Of Nearly 600 Earthquakes Rattles Southern California As Speculation About “The Big One” Starts To Rise Again

    Over the last few days, a swarm of almost 600 earthquakes has shaken southern California, and a lot of people are becoming extremely concerned about what will happen next. In fact, if you go on Twitter right now you will find a tremendous amount of speculation that “the Big One” could be coming. The experts are trying to calm the general public by assuring them that it is probably not likely that “the Big One” is imminent, but they don’t know for sure. Forecasting earthquakes is not like forecasting the weather, and experts will continue to tell us that a major event is not likely until the day when one finally happens. [more]

    If Democrats Take The White House And Congress In November, It Will All Be Over For The Republican Party

    This is not a normal election, because if Democrats are able to win the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives in November, they will end the two party system as we know it today. Yes, there will still be two major political parties, but one will essentially be in permanent control. In recent weeks, there has been so much chatter on the left about ending the filibuster in the Senate permanently, about granting statehood to Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, and about “packing” the Supreme Court. Collectively, these three moves would basically make it exceedingly difficult for Republicans to ever become the majority party again. I know that this is an extreme statement to make, but I think that you will agree with me by the time this article is over.

    The writers acknowledge that voluntary measures should be tried first, rather than mandating the vaccine for everyone out of the gate. However, if the target population doesn't comply within a trial period, a mandate should be rolled out, and the penalties for refusing to submit should be harsh. Given "the costs of a failed voluntary scheme," the writers warn, authorities should wait no more than a few weeks before rolling out a mandate if uptake falls short of expectations.

    A record-breaking ozone hole that formed over the Arctic this spring has closed, researchers announced late last week.

    Scientists at the Copernicus' Atmospheric Monitoring Service tracking the "rather unusual" ozone hole announced Thursday on Twitter that it had ended. The group said the hole was caused by a polar vortex and closed when that vortex split.

    US political discourse is so toxic & divided that friends of 30 years no longer talk to me. The America I loved has gone forever

    The bitter divisions in America are turning neighbour against neighbour and tearing families apart, amid an atmosphere of indoctrination where freedom of thought and speech is outlawed. I fear we’re on the road to civil war.

    2020 has been one hell of a year. It included getting Brexit done, Covid-19, big-tech tyranny featuring extreme censorship by Twitter, Google, Facebook and Amazon as well as the stealth implementation of a social credit framework by Silicon Valley oligarchs as they plunder the economy under the diversionary power grab by pay-to-play politicians implementing quasi-permanent unlawful lockdowns. I’m sorry to say that the USA will become a banana republic.

    In addition, the global economy is in the worst economic depression in history - one that will only deepen as unemployment rates skyrocket as we enter the last few months of 2020. [more]
