The propagandists are in overdrive shoving "climate grief" down our collective throats. And the next step in that indoctrination, the acceptance of climate eugenics to atone for our climate sins, is almost here. Join James for this week's important edition of #PropagandaWatch dissecting the dangerous lies that are being pushed in the name of the environment.

Sinkhole closes Louisville Zoo
A Kentucky zoo has closed while engineers study a newly discovered sinkhole nearly as large as a football field.

Louisville Zoo spokeswoman Kyle Shepherd told news outlets the sinkhole was found Wednesday in an undeveloped area away from any zoo animals. She said no people or animals were reported injured and no buildings damaged.

Louisville Metro Emergency Services Director Jody Meiman says officials estimate the sinkhole is about 50 yards by 85 yards (45 meters by 75 meters) and about 50 feet (15 meters) deep in spots.

HUGE 100ft sinkhole appears after 'earth tremor' reported in Montenegro

An enormous sinkhole has appeared after an earth tremor in north-eastern Montenegro.

The 100-foot-deep hole in the snowy ground appeared near a water reservoir outside the town of Rozaje. It opened up moments after a slight earth tremor. Stunned residents insisted they had never seen anything like it before.

Ibrahim Halilovic, who lives nearby, told local media: "Nothing has ever happened like this in these parts in all the 91 years I have been around.

"I used to know the forest areas well because I was a shepherd."

The Seawatch neighbourhood of Sechelt, on B.C.'s Sunshine Coast, is under an evacuation order because of sinkholes.
The evacuation order was issued for 14 homes in the upscale Sunshine Coast subdivision.

Residents of 14 ocean-view homes on B.C.'s Sunshine Coast have been ordered to leave after an engineering report found that nearby sinkholes are putting them at risk.

As of 1 p.m. Friday, District of Sechelt declared a local state of emergency for the Seawatch neighbourhood perched above the west side of Sechelt Inlet north of Vancouver.

The area is surrounded by blue fencing to keep intruders - and residents - away from the homes.

"Future sinkholes or landslides could damage existing infrastructure such as underground utilities, roads or sidewalks, or private property including buildings and retaining walls," says the engineering report commissioned by the district. "Injury or even death are possible consequences."

Two massive sinkholes opened up in a clover field in central Turkey's Konya province, spreading fear among locals living in the area.

The first sinkhole opened up in Reşadiye neighborhood on Friday, Anadolu Agency reported, adding that it measured 4 meters in diameter and 20 meters in depth. Teams from Karapınar Municipality put up a wire fence around the sinkhole to prevent accidents.

After three days, a 10-meter-deep sinkhole with a 7-meter diameter opened up in the same neighborhood at 3 a.m. local time.

Comment: Experts who claim that its merely due to 'structure' and 'rainfall', apparently unaware of any other factors, when sinkholes are opening up all over the planet, are clearly missing a significant piece of the puzzle:

Sinkhole swallows river in Indonesia

sinkhole swallow indonesia river
Normally, rivers flow horizontally. Now the water of this river in Babadan Village, Indonesia disappears in a deep sinkhole underground, drying up the stream. Very disturbing, isn't it?

This Youtube video was first uploaded today by the chef of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, via his twitter account @Sutopo_PN:

As seen in both videos, the water is vanishing in a deep and probably very large underground hole. Freaky! Hopefully the river will not completely disappear.

Seismic swarm in progress between southern Cascadia and northern San Andreas Faults

Four Magnitude-3.4 and larger quakes have struck in two hours, all south of Cape Mendocino, and west of the town of Petrolia, California. Based on the earthquake locations and their focal mechanisms (both by the USGS), the swarm appears to be occurring on a right-lateral reverse fault that connects the northernmost San Andreas-Mendocino Fracture Zone with the shallow portion of the Cascadia Megathrust (as shown by the black half- arrows in the map).

Sinkholes open up in within days of each other in Los Angeles and Chile

The sinkhole opened up after the M6.7 earthquake in Quebrada las Canas, Olmué, Chile on January 20, 2019.
Residents of Quebrada Las Cañas, Chile, were left terrified after a giant 11 meters in diameter and 17 meters deep sinkhole opened up following the M6.7 earthquake of last weekend. The gigantic crater swallowed up a house and 9 farm animals. In the meantime, a sinkhole estimated at about 80 feet long opened up between two condominium complexes in La Habra, L.A., forcing evacuations.

Residents at a La Habra condominium complex say a loud sound late Wednesday, January 23, 2019, made them brace for a strong jolt from an earthquake - but the shaking never arrived.

Large sinkhole in Maasdijk, the Netherlands: 100 households with less to none tap water

Sinkhole in Maasdijk.
Last Thursday, on January 24th, a 2-meter-wide sinkhole appeared in the Dutch city of Maasdijk. News reports say the cause was a leak in the water pipeline. Water supply to around a hundred households has been cut off as a result.

The water is being pumped out of the sinkhole to try to repair the leak. The sinkhole appeared at the intersection of Korte Kruisweg with Abel Tasmanstraat. A part of the road has been closed. Due to the sinkhole, a lot of sand has been pouring out on the street.

According to news reports, it's unknown what caused the leak. However, as explained in the book 'Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection':
Since none of the invoked causes can explain the sudden appearance of so many new sinkholes in so many different locations, we're left to consider that some new factor must underpin the sharp increase. It makes us wonder if the 'opening up' of the Earth is not this new factor."
It is likely that sinkholes are caused by the slowdown of the Earth's rotation as a result of an increase in electrically charged comet dust surrounding the planet, and the decrease in solar activity. This could lead to the Earth literally 'opening up'.

Draining the swamp? Sinkhole near the White House will keep streets closed for up to a week for repairs

sinkhole
A sinkhole that opened near the White House on Tuesday and caused street closures will take up to a week to repair, officials said Thursday.

The sinkhole opened at 17th and D streets NW, causing the closure of 17th Street NW between C and E streets.

On Thursday, the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority said in a statement that crews are still working to expose a sewer line that was crushed when concrete fell on it.

Officials said 17th Street between C and E streets and D Street between 15th and 17th streets will remain closed until the repairs are complete.

Pepco is also at the scene to repair power lines, according to a spokeswoman from the utility.
