Event Update For 2021-05-17


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.

Quote: "'If we assume the first six months of 2020 as non-COVID-19 period for Odisha as far as deaths are concerned, the second half saw a dramatic rise in deaths across the State.

Quote: "As India logs more than 4,000 deaths a day – the real death count, according to experts, is several times higher, going by the number of cremations and burials taking place every day – the spotlight has turned to the growing struggle of the country’s overworked and underpaid crematorium workers."

    Extinction by 2027
    [by Malcolm Light]

    The greatest threat to humanity on Earth is the escalating Arctic atmospheric methane buildup, caused by the destabilization of subsea methane hydrates. This subsea Arctic methane hydrate destabilization will go out of control in 2024 and lead to a catastrophic heatwave by 2026.

    While the source region for this subsea methane is in Russian waters, the hot ocean current setting them off is the northern extension of the Gulf Stream - North Atlantic Drift, the “Svalbard Current”, which makes United States and Canadian atmospheric pollution guilty of this looming catastrophic Global Extinction event.

    If Everything Is Going To Be Just Fine, Why Do The Shortages Just Keep Getting Worse?

    here we are in 2021, and we were told that things would be getting back to normal by now.

    But instead, there are severe shortages everywhere around us.

    In fact, the shortages are far worse than anything that we experienced in 2020.

    For example, did you know that dozens of important drugs are in short supply? According to the official FDA website, there are shortages of more than 100 drugs in the United States right now.

    This wasn’t supposed to happen.

    Shortages just continue to get worse for the home building industry as well [it ain't lumber!]

    many executives now expect the computer chip shortage to extend into 2023.

    For automakers, this is rapidly becoming a complete and total nightmare. During the first quarter, global auto production was down by about 10 percent due to the chip shortage, but Ford has announced that production in the second quarter will be down by about 50 percent

    If automakers can’t make vehicles, then they will have to start laying off workers.

    The economic optimists keep telling us that better days are right around the corner, but those better days never seem to materialize.

    Instead, employment is still way below pre-pandemic levels, global supply chains are in a state of complete and utter chaos, and we are facing severe shortages of just about everything. [more]

    ‘Mysterious mass’ found on North Carolina coast. What is this blob baffling experts?

    A strange, semi-transparent blob of finger-like growths filled with white dots has baffled North Carolina wildlife experts after it was found washed up on the coast, prompting them to ask the public, “Do you know what this mysterious mass is?”

    Cape Lookout National Seashore shared a photo of the unidentified blob Tuesday afternoon. It was found months ago but despite their best efforts, experts couldn’t find a definitive answer. [more]

    Exxon and Chevron just lost their most important excuse for new oil drilling

    Time is up for any new oil and gas drilling worldwide, according to a major report from the International Energy Agency on May 18. The report lays out what IEA believes will be necessary to avert global warming of greater than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the just-shy-of-catastrophe ceiling enshrined in the Paris climate agreement. The pathway to that goal is “narrow but still achievable,” the report says—but only if “there are no new oil and gas fields approved for development, and no new coal mines or mine extensions” beyond 2021.

    the report still leaves considerable room for continued fossil fuel production from existing fields [more; always a loophole]

    But despite 262 killings in 2020 - more than twice as many as London in a city with the population of Brighton - residents have just voted in a new mayor promising to defund the police and close the city’s most notorious prison. [more]

    Earth has two kinds of poles. The north and south magnetic poles, which affect things like navigation, drift and even switch places back and forth over time. Earth’s other kind of pole is the axis around which the planet physically spins. This axis has also slightly shifted over time, but scientists haven’t been able to exactly figure out why.

    Texas Homeowners Beware: Dangerous Zombie Trees Created by February Freeze

    It's been months since a deadly winter storm laid siege to parts of Texas back in February, and homeowners still aren't out of the woods.

    Even with utilities long since restored and summer just around the corner, experts warn that there might be another horror on the horizon for survivors of the historic freeze: zombie trees.

    As Matt Petty, an arborist who works with Davey Tree, explained to the Houston Chronicle, not all of the trees killed by the extreme winter weather appear dead.

    Antarctica is headed for a climate tipping point by 2060, with catastrophic melting if carbon emissions aren't cut quickly

    While U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken draws attention to climate change in the Arctic at meetings with other national officials this week in Iceland, an even greater threat looms on the other side of the planet.

    New research shows it is Antarctica that may force a reckoning between the choices countries make today about greenhouse gas emissions and the future survival of their coastlines and coastal cities, from New York to Shanghai.

    That reckoning may come much sooner than people realize.

    The Arctic is losing ice as global temperatures rise, and that is directly affecting lives and triggering feedback loops that fuel more warming. But the big wild card for sea level rise is Antarctica. It holds enough land ice to raise global sea levels by more than 200 feet (60 meters) – roughly 10 times the amount in the Greenland ice sheet – and we’re already seeing signs of trouble.

    The new study shows that if emissions continue at their current pace, by about 2060 the Antarctic ice sheet will have crossed a critical threshold and committed the world to sea level rise that is not reversible on human timescales. [more]

    A third of euro zone corporate loans exposed to climate hazards: ECB

    Euro zone banks face potential climate hazards such as floods and droughts on up to a third of their loans to companies, with lenders in Greece, Portugal and Spain among the most exposed, the European Central Bank said on Monday.

    The ECB study is part of a broader analysis of the risks that climate change poses to the financial sector, ranging from physical damage to changes in regulation or in consumer preferences.

    It found that around 30% of euro area banks' corporate loan book is exposed to businesses located in areas where the risk of floods, droughts, extreme heat, wildfires or a rise in sea levels is high or rising. [more]

    Objective:Health - Dropping Covid Vaccination Rates
    https://www.sott.net/article/452912-Objective-Health-Dropping-Covid-Vaccination-Rates [34.25 min. video]

    Many mainstream media outlets have been reporting on the dropping vaccination rates across the US, with unused vaccines piling up across the country. They, of course, blame Republicans, and specifically Trump for this "vaccine hesitancy", as it does appear that the red states have lower vaccination rates overall.

    But could it be that once those in care homes and hospitals were vaccinated and the Covid True Believers who were chomping at the bit to get their shots were dealt with, there simply aren't that many people anxious to get this experimental medical procedure? Could it be that those still able to think, even if not directly opposed to the shot, are thinking it more prudent to wait this one out? Could it be that, despite the constant media push, trust in the authorities and their solutions is actually dropping?

    Join us for this episode of Objective:Health as we tease out the implications of this recent drop in Covid vaccine uptake.
