Mr. Dubyne may have outdone himself with this one. He covers a lot of ground and touches on higher prices ..

That's stage 2 alright.
DuByne can get things right sometimes. I do appreciate when he puts out good content.

Setting up a "survival of the fittest" scenario. An expected event(s) that will decimate a species is approaching.

It is a herd species. Members of the herd exist through codependencies.
You have assumed authority and control over the "herd".
You have ascertained that when the event(s) occur, you have few options to ensure survival of but few.

Many members of that species are subject to various "morbidities" in a way that would hinder survival of the younger and more fit of the population through vulnerabilities in systems of codependency.

You begin culling the herd with an agent that changes the various "morbidities" within the herd to "co-morbidities" as the agent spreads and removes the weak.

..... as the scenario goes....

"It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries ... A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask. Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance." [...]

"The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs.

This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome."Blaylock also emphasizes how wearing masks is dangerous from a health perspective - it encourages the recycling (rather than the expulsion) of viruses and bacteria, some of which can enter the brain with potentially lethal consequences:"It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation.

By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain."

Since Lo'ihi has calmed, activity has shifted to the Mauna Loa peak.
Possibly a familiar pattern beginning again.

An educational compilation: -What happens when lava flows into the ocean? -Submarine films deep underwater eruption! -Explore the underwater volcano! -What will it look like when it reaches the surface? Footage compiled from Lo‘ihi, Kilauea, West Mata, and Kavachi volcanoes.

A storm of this size with hail and winds of this kind has historically caused major damage to vehicles and homes and flooding city wide.

There is a chance of continued severe weather throughout the Memorial Day weekend and through the middle of next week.

This is a developing story.

"Michigan hit with ‘500-year’ flooding"

Media blames global warming, but I think it’s an indication that we’re headed into the next ice age.

For starters, look at where this occurred.

“Areas where colding should become noticeable during an oncoming glaciation should correspond to areas where thick ice is known to have existed during previous glaciations,” reader ‘Watchdog’ points out.

“This regional map of Canada and the USA is an indicator.”

“Michigan hit with ‘500-year’ flooding,” reads the headline.

Rising flood waters, already as high as five feet, submerged parts of the central Michigan on Wednesday after days of heavy rain led to the failure of two dams and the evacuation of thousands of people.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of “life-threatening” flooding as water levels of the Tittabawassee River in Midland, about 120 miles northwest of Detroit, reached historic levels and were expected to continue rising.

“Experts are describing this as a 500-year event,” said Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “It is going to have a major impact on community and on our state for the time to come.”

The website clickondetroit blames global warming, and believe it or not, I think they’ve got it partially right.

They explain it this way:

“Extreme precipitation events are definitely occurring more often, and there is a very simple reason why: as Earth warms, more ocean water is evaporating into the atmosphere.

“Since it is this atmospheric humidity that storms turn into precipitation, storms now have more “juice” to work with, and are producing more extreme precipitation events worldwide as a result (and yes, that also includes snow).”

I would need them to change only one word, and I could agree with the above statement. If they would change the one word, ‘Earth,’ to ‘ocean warming,’ I could agree with them.

Of course, as you already know if you’ve read Not by Fire but by Ice, I think ocean warming is driven by underwater volcanoes, not by humans.

As I keep saying over and over again: “Warmer oceans and colder skies…a deadly combination. (Underwater volcanoes heat the seas while above-water volcan0es cool the skies.)

“They say it’s a 500 year event,” says reader David Dean. “Well maybe it’s 10,500 year event.”

Record cold in Slovakia last night.
Coldest May 22 in at least 69 years.

It was freezing even in the lowlands
Meteorologists have warned that ground frosts have also appeared in the lowlands.

"At lower altitudes two meters above the surface, the minimum temperature reached mostly plus three to minus two degrees Celsius," they added.

Cloudless conditions and almost complete windlessness contributed to the intensity of the cold.

In Kamenice nad Cirochou in the district of Humenné it was even -3.6 degrees Celsius.

The recorded negative temperature in Poprad (-2.1 degrees Celsius) exceeded the record minimum temperature of May 22, which was measured in 1951.

Even the night on Saturday will be freezing
In addition, the SHMÚ points out that the night ground frosts are not over yet.

They also issued a first-degree warning for the whole of eastern Slovakia on Friday night, ie the Košice and Prešov regions, which is valid from one after midnight to Saturday morning.

Temperatures up to 5 centimeters above the surface in the northern districts can drop to -1 to -5 degrees Celsius, in the southern districts temperatures can be as low as minus three degrees.

Eastern Europe just stays cold to June 7...maybe longer.

I wonder how many underwater volcanoes are erupting at the same time?

An eruption marked as “continuing” does not always mean that the activity is continuous or happening today, but that there have been at least some intermittent eruptive events at that volcano without a break of at least 3 months since it started.
