A team of Chinese scientists has discovered a giant new sinkhole with a forest at its bottom.
The sinkhole is 630 feet (192 meters) deep, according to the Xinhua news agency, deep enough to just swallow St. Louis' Gateway Arch. A team of speleologists and spelunkers rappelled into the sinkhole on Friday (May 6), discovering that there are three cave entrances in the chasm, as well as ancient trees 131 feet (40 m) tall, stretching their branches toward the sunlight that filters through the sinkhole entrance.
The sinkhole's interior is 1,004 feet (306 m) long and 492 feet (150 m) wide, Zhang Yuanhai, a senior engineer with the Institute of Karst Geology, told Xinhua. The Mandarin word for such enormous sinkholes is "tiankeng," or "heavenly pit," and the bottom of the sinkhole did indeed seem like another world. Chen Lixin, who led the cave expedition team, told Xinhua that the dense undergrowth on the sinkhole floor was as high as a person's shoulders. Karst caves and sinkholes can provide an oasis for life, Veni said.
"I wouldn't be surprised to know that there are species found in these caves that have never been reported or described by science until now," Lixin said.
In one West Texas cave, Veni said, tropical ferns grow abundantly; the spores of the ferns were apparently carried to the sheltered spot by bats that migrate to South and Central America.
Not only do sinkholes and caves offer refuge for life, they are also a conduit to aquifers, or deep stores of underground water. Karst aquifers provide the sole or primary water source for 700 million people worldwide, Veni said. But they're easily accessed and drained — or polluted.
"Karst aquifers are the only types of aquifers that you can pollute with solid waste," Veni said. "I've pulled car batteries and car bodies and barrels of God-knows-what and bottles of God-knows-what out of the active cave stream."

Phil Godlewski warning that we have 2 weeks to 45 days of the climax coming, starting around this weekend!
These are reported in some detail on this rumble live video from last night
1) Expect a lot of the main commentators/"Truthers" to go DARK now until next Monday earliest - possibly for a week or so,
2) You will see glaring discrepancies in MSM reporting for 4 or 5 days: different outlets will report the opposite of each other!
3) We are going to go through 4 stages:
CONFUSION - see (1) and (2)... 4 or 5 days?
CLARITY - for us anons - but normies will take longer to reach that clarity and will need support. Advised to avoid confrontation when trying to help clarify to normies. Supreme Court revealing they've been judging election fraud... DJT announcing he's President in exile of a devolved government.
PANIC - in the swamp... they won't be able to walk down the street... SUICIDE WEEKEND? This will impact those below controller level, e.g. the Adam Schiff, Rappensberger types, company execs, etc.
CONCLUSION and mop up.

Seen some chatter that the Pfizer vax has been causing autoimmune disorder/blisters called pemphigoid and that maybe “monkeypox” is the cover
