    What exactly is the ‘coronavirus’?

    How worried do we need to be?

    Given the poor communication so far by government health organizations and the media, the severity of the situation and the risk to public health, Chris Martenson filmed this important explanatory video hours ago.

    In it, Chris explains the virus in layman’s terms, why the contagion we’re seeing is likely to spread substantially from here, and why the actions being taken so far by public health officials to contain the threat are woefully insufficient.

    Executive Summary

    • Why the coronavirus is much more dangerous than the standard flu
    • Why, if it accelerates, it can easily overwhelm our health & safety systems
    • A list of the most important preparations for a pandemic
    • Why you *really* want to put those in place now

    If you have not yet read ALERT: Coronavirus Pandemic Event Now A Serious Risk, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Well, this is a report I really hoped never to write.  But we all need to get our head on straight around this fast-spreading viral outbreak.

    A pandemic is #3 on my personal “oh shit” list (a prolonged grid-down event is #2, and a global world war with nukes is, by far, #1)

    Once a pandemic spreads to my neck of the woods, I’m not going to be doing anything in the company of strangers.  No shopping, no going to restaurants, and especially no traveling in closed up metal tubes with recirculated air (i.e. planes and trains).

    ALERT: Coronavirus Pandemic Event Now A Serious Risk

    The prudent are preparing for it

    The coronavirus is currently sweeping across China. So far, it has all the hallmarks of a potential true pandemic outbreak.

    While it could still (and hopefully will) be contained and burn itself out, the chances of that are slipping by the hour.

    Off The Cuff: Pre-emptive Strike

    The central planners are desperately fighting the next recession, even though it isn't here yet

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Australia Is Burning
    • The impending shale oil bust
    • Central banking desperation
    • The PP May 2020 seminar

    The evidence is now impossible to refute: the Economic, Energy & Environmental predicaments this site has been warning of for years are now hitting in force. Central banks are panicking, Australia is burning and the shale oil patch is becoming a graveyard for investor capital.

    How desperate is it becoming?
