Apocalypse Preview: Chinese River Turns Blood-Red

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Things in China are getting downright biblical.

First it was the floating animal apocalypse: who can forget the 16,000 floating pigs, followed by a thousand dead ducks, culminating with 5 dead black swans. But nothing quite beats the dramatic impact of the inner river of Wenzhou flowing blood red.

According to China Radio International, this is precisely what happened:

An inner city waterway in the eastern city of Wenzhou was found to have been inundated by an influx of blood-red water this morning.

 

Local residents say the river was running normally at 4am, but it started to redden at around 6am, and in no time turned as crimson as blood.

 

One villager who has lived his whole life by the river side said this has never happened before. The villager recalled that there wasn't a chemical plant along the upper stream.

 

Inspectors from the Wenzhou Environmental Protection Bureau said they have not found the cause of the incident, although water samples seem to indicate the suspicious color was a result of illegal dumping in the river.

And whatever the real cause, one can be certain the Chinese EPA will never disclose it.

Then again, we already know that 60% Of China's Water "Too Polluted To Drink. Who knows, perhaps potable blood flowing through the rivers would be an improvement? Well, maybe not:

 “The really weird thing is that we have been able to catch fish because the water is normally so clear,” one local villager commented on China’s microblogging site Weibo.

 

Residents in Zhejiang province said the river looked normal at 5 a.m. Beijing time on Thursday morning. Within an hour, the entire river turned crimson. Residents also said a strange smell wafted through the air.

This is what the Apocalypse may or may not look like one day, but one thing is certain: on that day spoos will be halted, limit up.

 

Finally, reverse engineered "True Blood":

Agreed!   China is the biggest refugee disaster waiting to happen.  Watch out Asia/Europe/Australia/Africa.

I am glad there is at least the Pacific Ocean between us and them.   

China has it coming the worst.  India is a close second.

Imagine how much filth they will be swimming in when the 1.3 billion in China and the 1 billion in India become 2 billion each.... or when our global village of 7 billion becomes 9, 10, or 12 billion. 

The best/saddest/most ironic part about this story is the pic of the dude on the bike almost smiling in front of the biggest sign that he and his descendants are fucked.

And the best they can do is snap a selfie?!?!

The Nuclear Mafia are building their crappy nuclear reactors in China and India hand-over-fist. You're exponentially-expanding Chinese and Indian populations are predicated on the assumption that those reactors will be operated responsibly - without cutting corners or poor design due to incompetence or corruption. And if there is ever an accident, the first priority of the government will be to protect the health of its citizens.

See where I'm going with that?

"...And if there is ever an accident, the first priority of the government will be to protect the health of its citizens.

When (not if) ever there is a nuclear "accident" (debatable), all dirts are dug up, design error, engineer error, geography error (wrong to be by the ocaen), etc, etc 

Know that they're all planned. Non-humans absorb nuclear energy (and our fear) as food.

WTFup. Governments are bought off and controlled. No one is protecting the health of humans on Earth.

 

Oh, btw, red-boold-like water is everywhere:

Ohio, Texas, Canadian Rockies, Australia, Antartica, Hungary, some are due to disasterous pollution, some unexplained (?)

china's fertility rate is about 1.5, way below replacement of 2.1 (http://www.photius.com/rankings/population/total_fertility_rate_2012_1.html).  its population will be falling for a long time once it peaks rather soon.  india is at 2.5 or so but falling.  really the only countries which still have high population growth rates are afghanistan and some in africa.

as women get a little money and education, and a bit of freedom from the domination of men, they seem universally to choose enough fewer children that population growth rates fall below replacement.

You are correct.

So you think an ocean will stop a flood of Chinese refugees? Only takes a few days by boat to reach US territory such as Guam. For the mainland US they could load a few hundred cargo ships with 10,000 to 250,000 peaple EACH and land on the west coast.

A large cargo ship can carry over 15,000 shipping containers and 20' containers have made the journey with over 50 people, so 250,000 is doable. The biggest carry over 18,000 containers and if the containers are properly outfitted (triple bunks, ventilation) and people can leave them to go to the toilets then a single ship could carry ONE MILLION REFUGEES.

Agreements are in English. But this doesn't amount to much. English is the common language in Europe. All of India speaks it, otherwise they would have no common tongue, and of course the chinese are hiring tons of English teachers throughout the country (as is most of asia, just look up English teaching jobs). Dubai and others are as well. 

Its really more out of convenience than anything else. 

 

But your other points are taken.

The fact that they are capitalizing Fortaleza using their their dollar reserves tells me that they are joining together to soften the impact of a fracturing federal fiat funbuk. It may be a way to "expend" some reserves, i.e., another step towards the door w/o a total writeoff.

"All of India speaks it"

So here is the weird thing.  I have been reading/editing a bunch of papers recently for publication in US medical journals.  Given that people want their research to reach the broadest possible audience, a lot of researchers (MDs and others) from all over the world write in English so as to be published in US journals.  I am not surprised to see that there is a lot of funky grammar and weird English from many of these places; again, it's not their native language, so you can see pretty easily how they are trying to translate directly from their native tongue into English.  This is to be expected.

The weird thing is that the worst papers I've read (in terms of being incomprehensible because of sentence structure, vocabulary choice, grammar usage) are from India.  As you say here, I thought India was fundamentally an English speaking country?  What's the deal with this?  These people I'm reading are in the medical field, traditionally a highly educated group.  Yet they write things that cannot even be translated because they make no sense.  Other Asian groups, Europeans, and Latin Americans all write clearer English, even though they don't use English as their national language.

What's up with that?

Why do you think the Chinese are trying to flood the markets with renminbi.

Gresham's Law bitchez. You crowd out the competition the holdouts will eventually relent when all the cool kids are worshiping it.

Just replacing one weapon of mass financial destruction debt bomb aka USD with another aka CNY unless they decide to practice a sound money policy and back the renmibi with silver. Gold won't work since there isn't enough of it in the world or in the central banks to anchor the value and quantity of currency against it for monetary policies to work.

There isn't enough gold in the banks to use debt free money backed by a commodity to effectively work on a global scale for commerce transactions regardless of what gold bugs think.

There is though if you use silver. Why do you think silver is the red headed step child when it comes to monetary metals.

It was silver that kept the monetary system in check during the 1800s not gold. Things didn't start going bad until they went off a bi-metal monetary system in the US.

An interesting book came out in 1998 called

And the Waters Turned to Blood March 31, 1998 Rodney Barker's book, And the Waters Turned to Blood details the latest plague to visit our shores: Pfiesteria piscicida, the "cell from hell," an aquatic microorganism that causes sufferers to exhibit symptoms similar to Alzheimers or multiple sclerosis. As it follows the fortunes of Dr. JoAnn Burkholder, one of the first scientists to recognize the danger of Pfiesteria, Barker's book reads like a cross between science fiction and conspiracy theory: Dr. Burkholder discovers that excessive pollution in the rivers and coastal waters of the Southeastern United States causes a deadly microorganism to breed like crazy; state and federal government attempts to suppress the report. An investigative reporter by training, Mr. Barker writes And the Waters Turned to Blood like a thriller, revealing pieces of the puzzle judiciously as he builds tension. Unlike in a literary thriller, however, there is no tidy ending to this story. Readers will be left with the disturbing knowledge that fish are still dying, fishermen are still getting sick, and the potential for disaster in this latest scourge is still unmeasured.

China is doing a bang up job of turning their entire nation into an ecological basket case that will make East Germany's former problems look like a sand dune with a quart of motor oil spilled on it.

The bible cannot be quoted in context because the context is 2000 years ago amongst uneducated people who believed in witches, ghosts and magic.

And 72%, in 2014, still believe in angels.

The problem with believing that people actually believe in angels is that people can "say" they believe in anything but rarely indicate how much critical thought, if any, they have put into said belief. If someone says they believe in angels but then cannot provide any practical information on where the angels are, what they are made of, how they interact with humans, how old they are, whether they are immortal, if they are immortal how, do they eat or sleep, what do they look like, are they transparent, then what does their statement even mean? It means nothing.

It's real easy for people to say they "believe" because all this act entails is actually repeating the words. Pretty easy really. This is what the vast majority of belief boils down to, just repeating a set of words, sentences, phrases that have been passed onto them by their parents and teachers. Part of this belief system is claiming just how deeply affected and moved they are by their belief, but they say this because the people around them with the same belief say the same thing. But how deeply moved are they, really? How different is their life to a militant athesist, really?

Standing back and looking from the outside so to speak, there's no difference between a law abiding atheist and a law abiding theist nor any difference between a criminal athesist and criminal theist.  They just say different things. In the end we are all human but we are not all christians, jews, muslims, hindus, zoroastrians, jains, buddhists, scientologists, <insert name of tribe here>.

This is obviously pollution by some factory up river dumping chemicals...... so if you are going to qoute scripture maybe try something form Genesis where God assigned man as care taker of this earth.  Or Psalms where God talks about the earth being His, which means Man should respect the earth and take care of it not pollute it and exploit it.

I read this on Reddit a few hours ago and the article I read stated that there was a papermaking mill up the river a couple of miles and that one of the plants up the river had dumped dye in the river because they had expected torrential rains and thought the dye would not be noticed due to the flush of rain. Unfortunately, for the mill that dumped the dye, it did not end up raining and the town down the river is now complaining about the dye in the water. Z/H is just feeding this story line to you for sensationalism purposes IMHO.

$1.4 quadrillion in dark pool derivatives universe dictates that we will have a complete economic collapse with probability p=0.98 just to be safe. Nothing that contemporary Economists are doing to solve the 2008 crash will save us from the next crash. The next crash is forcasted by almost all in the know and few well known Economists

are optimistic that growth will return. Macroprudential policy is failing, the FED is a running joke, and Muppets are in office. Welcome to the Zoo, EI.

The citizens of China's big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong live longer than Americans.  Rural Chinese, not so mucn. Hong Kong women live longer than any women on the planet, the men are second only to the Japanese in life expectancy. So complain about "the air, water, and soil are polluted worse than anything imaginable" all you want. It's not as important as you would like it to be.

Aye, per Mr. Spock, it's Dinoflagellates, commonly known as Red Tide. Look it up.

The right mix of chemical nutrients and water temperature will do it. Check the Of levels, as they'll drop and dead fish and frogs will start floating. Next these will attract flies, etc.

Alternatively, check for Red dye.
