Event Update For 2018-04-17





The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-04-17 - Unknown chemical odor regularly hitting River Ridge (Louisiana), near the Mississippi River:
http://www.wdsu.com/article/river-ridge-residents-fearful-of-chemical-odor-in-the-air-1524021635/19846393

Quote: "For months, residents in River Ridge have complained about a "chemical odor" that's taken over their neighborhoods. They're wondering about the source of the odor, and what kind of impact it could have on their health. On the Nextdoor app, dozens of comments about the odor have been made over the last several months. Residents complaining of the stench live on Arbor Lane, Moss Lane, Robin Lane, Rosecrest Lane, Southern Road, Orchard Road, Tyler Avenue and many other nearby streets."

Quote: "Department of Environmental quality officials confirmed they've received several complaints and said they have dispatched crews multiple times to test the air. However, the issue is the odor comes and goes, and all of the times the DEQ had responded, the stench had already dissipated, and air quality tests came back normal."

Quote: "Marty Martinez, a passenger on the plane, posted a Facebook Live during the emergency landing. 'Flight attendants ran over calling for passengers to help cover the hole as they broke down and began uncontrollably crying and looking horrified as they looked outside. Plane dropped dramatically and it smelled like fire with ash coming down on everyone thru the vents. Absolutely terrifying, but we are okay,' Martinez wrote."

Quote: "In an interview with CBSN, Martinez said an engine exploded and broke a window. 'First there was an explosion and almost immediatey, the oxygen masks came down and, probably within a matter of 10 seconds, the engine then hit a window and busted it wide open,' said Martinez. Martinez says a woman was critically injured. 'There was blood everywhere,' Martinez explained."

Event Update For 2018-04-16





The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-04-16 - Volcano Ambae continues erupting, ash covers all of Ambae Island (Vanuatu), 4 killed:
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/index.php?pageid=event_update&edis_id=VA-20180412-62584-VUT

Quote: "While initially impacting only southern parts of the island, more violent eruptions and changing wind patterns have caused ash to cover the entire island. Lindsay Ford, Chairman of Rotary International on Norfolk Island, said the humanitarian organization has been notified of at least four deaths related to the volcano in recent days. Some areas have endured significant ash falls which has forced the Vanuatu government to consider permanently relocating all the residents of the island. The Vanuatu government has met with chiefs from the islands of Maemo and Pentecost to attempt to acquire land for the current residents of Ambae, according to ABC. Vanuatu's Council of Ministers hopes to have land secured by the end of May. Food supplies have been completely destroyed by the falling ash, and water sources have been polluted. Impacts are expected to remain limited to Ambae Island barring a more significant eruption."

http://www.sott.net/article/382978-Stream-of-viruses-circling-planet-trillions-fall-from-the-sky-every-day

Quote: "Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet's weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that's why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet."

2018-04-16 - Scientists accidentally create mutant enzyme that can eat plastic:
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/16/scientists-accidentally-create-mutant-enzyme-that-eats-plastic-bottles
http://www.thebigwobble.org/2018/04/frankensteins-monster-scientists.html

Quote: "Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles. The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan."
