2015-04-01 - Man, 53, has heart problems on charter boat near coastal Westport (Washington), medevac'd off:

2015-04-01 - Volcano Villarrica erupts violently in Chile:

Quote: "After a short period of rest, the Villarrica volcano in southern Chile recently exploded to life again, sending a plume of boiling ash high into the atmosphere. The eruption triggered an increase in the alert level near the volcano to orange, the second highest rating."

2015-04-01 - Magnitude 6.0 earthquake strikes off the coast of the Fiji Islands:

2015-04-01 - Serious mandatory water restrictions hit California as drought digs in:

Quote: "Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday ordered mandatory water use reductions for the first time in California's history, saying the state's four-year drought had reached near-crisis proportions after a winter of record-low snowfalls."

2015-04-01 - Massive fog bank blots out the Sydney Harbour Bridge in coastal Sydney (Australia):

2015-04-02 - Atmospheric methane levels keep on climbing, no end in sight:

Note: And we're already past survivable levels...

2015-04-02 - Magnitude 3.6 earthquake shakes the Bootheel region of Missouri:

Quote: "Shaking was felt in six states — Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Southeast Missouri is part of the New Madrid Fault, where significant earthquakes in 1811 and 1812 were so strong they could be felt in New England."

2015-04-02 - Rare deepwater fish caught near Charna Island (Pakistan):

2015-04-02 - Video footage of a tornado ripping into Bikaner (India) in March:

2015-04-03 - New study shows that hydrogen sulfide was important factor in Permian-Triassic extinction:

Quote: "The new report described a phenomenon called ‘marine photic zone euxinia,’ which happens when the surface waters in the ocean become devoid of oxygen and are made toxic by hydrogen sulfide –a by-product of anaerobic microbes."

Note: Heh, just as I've been saying all along. Now they're just one step away: it's happening NOW too. It might take 'em a while to reach that conclusion themselves, but since it's the truth then they don't have any choice, unless they prefer to die instead of facing reality. And once they DO reach the same conclusion, then they'll need to understand the effects, the fire vulnerabilities, the neurological problems in animals and humans, the effects on our transportation infrastructure, etc. I've already done a great deal of that work for them, so hopefully that'll give the scientists of the world a leg up once they accept reality, if they should do so before we're all dead...

2015-04-03 - Rotten-egg stench from landfill disturbing people in Lordstown (Ohio):

Quote: "Neighbors have also described an odor in the air like sulfur or rotten eggs, which could be poisonous hydrogen sulfide."

Note: Yeah, and what happens when you breathe a poison gas like hydrogen sulfide - even at low concentrations - over a long period of time? Nobody really knows, and I wouldn't want to be a participant in that experiment because I am quite sure that the effects aren't good. BEST case, your lifespan is reduced and you die earlier...

2015-04-03 - Mount Sinabung spews more ash and lava in North Sumatra (Indonesia), nearby residents evacuated:

2015-04-03 - Antibiotic-resistant intestinal superbug has spread to majority of US states:

2015-04-04 - Family has seizures, one person paralyzed, at coastal resort in the Virgin Islands, blamed on pesticide:

Quote: "Esmond was found unconscious; the boys and their mother were having seizures, Maron said."

Quote: "Sea Glass Vacations, which acts as a rental agent for several units at Sirenusa, said the unit directly below the one where the family stayed was recently treated for pests, but their unit was not treated."

Note: They were there for six days before they sickened, and their unit wasn't treated with pesticide, so I find it highly unlikely that this was caused by any pesticide in another unit. If that other unit was THAT deadly, then it would have been even DEADLIER six days before and they would have sickened on day one, not day six. This sounds like they got hit by hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the ocean, or got poisoned via contact with contaminated matter or water. Pesticides are neurotoxins, as is hydrogen sulfide, so 'pesticide poisoning' looks to be a cover story that may see some significant use as more people experience these same problems. Gotta have some story to sell the gullible, lest people discover the truth.

If you go to the beach, spaz out and get paralyzed yourself, and they tell you it was pesticide, I'd be pretty skeptical. I mean, they haven't even been able to explain why there's hydrogen sulfide in the ground in Chinchilla (Australia), or what the odor was that came from outdoors and hit the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, or the huge cloud of 'toxic gas of unknown origin' that sent people fleeing their homes puking in the middle of the night in coastal Rayong, or the 'rotten egg' odors that hit coastal Quincy (MA) and Meriden (CT) and Seattle (WA), or the 'noxious odor' that knocked people unconscious on the street on the island of Jamaica, or the hydrogen sulfide that hit a bank in Florida, or the 'strange odor' that knocked 22 high school students unconscious at an outdoor stadium in Houston, or what caused people to experience 'excited delirium' at a factory in Willmar (MN), or where the huge clouds of hydrogen sulfide came from that hit Kuwait City and Moscow, and on and on. If they can't even explain those events then you can't really expect them to be too competent about explaining THIS event either...

2015-04-04 - Black smoke ring seen in the sky in Kazakhstan:

Quote: "Andrey Solodovnik, associate physics professor at the Northern Kazakhstan State University estimates the ring was about 100 meters in diameter and floated at an altitude of between 200 meters to a kilometer. As to its mysterious origins, Solodnovik suggested the giant hoop was most likely a large smoke ring and was the result of combustion, a theory that confirms what most experts have said about similar circles seen in the past."

Note: Gas plume ignited in the sky and left a smoke remnant? What else could cause a 'combustion ring' 200 meters in the sky like that? 12,000 endangered saiga antelope dropped dead on May 27 in 2010 in Kazakhstan too. And there's a town there where people are hallucinating, experiencing memory loss and sleeping for days at a time, mentioned in the 2014-09-04 update. What could insta-kill 12,000 antelope? Not many things could do that, but a big cloud of poison gas - like the size of the cloud of hydrogen sulfide that hit Moscow recently, but more concentrated - that's one thing that could. And I can't think of anything else that could do that. The thousands of people who got hit by a huge cloud of 'toxic gas of unknown origin' in coastal Rayong (Thailand) and fled their homes puking in the middle of the night, mentioned in the 2014-06-08 update, came pretty close to meeting the same fate as those antelope...

2015-04-08 - HazMat event, unknown irritant causes breathing difficulties at apartment building in Spokane (Washington):

Quote: "The fire department says an irritant, possibly pepper spray, was released in the apartment building."

Note: So they don't actually know what it was. Maybe it was the same 'irritant' that hit a passenger plane and sickened 16 people, causing vomiting and eye irritation and forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Rome (Italy), mentioned in the 2014-12-06 update...

2015-04-08 - Alligator possibly spotted in the Monongahela River in Belle Vernon (Pennsylvania):

Note: An alligator in Pennsylvania, freaky, but I don't see how it can survive the winters. Still, if it makes it to summer, it might find some unsuspecting boaters to munch on this year if they don't catch it...

Note: Well, now I gotta wonder, how much is cat poop worth?! Cuz my cats produce a lot of it and I'd be very happy to get a buck per bag for it!

2015-04-11 - Eighty-year-old man with multiple sclerosis hits two holes-in-one, in consecutive months, in Lehigh Acres (Florida):

2015-04-12 - Girl, 9, collapses with seizures, foams at the mouth, at school in Barnesville (Georgia):

Quote: "He says  Savannah first complained of a headache  Monday March 30th and was kept out of school then cleared to return by her pediatrician. The next day her dad says  the nine year old went back to Lamar County Primary School where she collapsed into convulsions and seizures after recess. 'The teacher said she was talking to her she was talking back, she stopped dead in her tracks and she started foaming at her mouth', said Mr. Talley."

Quote: "She doesn't have meningitis...Encephalitis, they ruled that out. Bug bites, snake bites, you name it they've ruled it out..."

Quote: "He says Savannah has suffered hundreds of seizures which is why doctors suspect her malady is centered around her brain."

Note: Sounds like she got hit by hydrogen sulfide and her brain got damaged. Since it disappears inside the body within hours, that's why they can't find any reason for this. What they will find, eventually, if they look, is that her brain has sustained damage. She's in a medically-induced coma now, but she's still in better shape than the 16-year-old boy who collapsed and died on a school bus before 1:30 AM in Oxon Hill (Maryland), mentioned in the 2015-04-11 update...

2015-04-12 - Mount Baekdu may be on the verge of eruption at the border of North Korea and China:

Quote: "The temperature from the caldera's geyser had been around 70C, but recently rose to 83C, Prof. Yoon said. The helium concentration rate had also recently jumped from 6.5 times that of the normal atmosphere from 2002 to 2005 to seven times. 'All these signs indicate the magma inside the mountain is moving upward," Yoon said. "We need to monitor the mountain closely.'"

2015-04-15 - Volcano Hekla shaken by shallow earthquake swarm in Iceland:

2015-04-15 - Mount Zao hit by 12 volcanic tremors in Japan:

Quote: "Fears of fresh eruption of Mount Zao, a volcano that sits on the border of the Yamagata and Miyagi prefectures, rattled Japan after the country’s meteorological agency recorded 12 volcanic earthquakes on Tuesday. The seismic activity prompted warnings of a volcanic eruption, with the agency asking the public to stay safe from falling rocks in a 1.2 km radius of the volcano, The Japan Times reported."

2015-04-15 - Mt. Baekdu could erupt at any time on the North Korea-China border:

2015-04-15 - Magnitude 5.6 earthquake strikes just off the coast of Cyprus:

2015-04-15 - Shallow magnitude 5.2 earthquake strikes off the coast of Japan:

Note: MISA Theory is looking scarily accurate with each passing year as volcanic activity continues to escalate. More volcanism means more methane and hydrogen sulfide bubbling up from the oceans. That's the same ol' extinction event that's killed off most life on Earth before and it's doing it again, a kind of cycle that the Earth goes through from time to time. Too bad we're around for it!

2015-04-15 - Unknown illness kills 2 people and sickens 20 more within a day in Bhojwa (India):

2015-04-16 - Unknown affliction kills 27 people in Nigeria:

Quote: "According to the article, the total number of deaths recorded in three days corresponds 27."

Note: They call it a disease, but they've identified no viral or bacterial cause, so that's merely a guess...

2015-04-16 - More volcanoes are erupting right now than the YEARLY average for the 20th century:

Quote: "Is the number of volcanic eruptions worldwide increasing? Yes. During the 20th century, there were a total of 3,542 volcanic eruptions globally. That works out to approximately 35 eruptions per year. That may sound like a lot, but according to Volcano Discovery there are 36 volcanoes erupting around the world right now. In other words, the number of volcanoes erupting as you read this article is greater than the 20th century's yearly average.

Quote: "All over the planet, volcanoes that have long been dormant are beginning to wake up, and this is greatly puzzling many scientists."

Note: Exactly as predicted by MISA Theory in 2010...

Quote: "High winds, snow and ice caused multiple traffic accidents that injured dozens of people in Wyoming on Thursday, and forced authorities to close 150 miles of Interstate 80, the main east-west artery crossing the southern part of the state. Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers reported three major pile-ups on the highway, involving as many as 50 commercial vehicles, including semi tractor-trailers, and 20 passenger vehicles."

2015-04-17 - Russian family finds bear cub on doorstep, adopts it:

Note: It's freaking adorable now, but trying to keep it as a pet wouldn't be wise. When it's 300+ pounds, one angry tantrum and it could tear someone's arms or head off. It's already got some good-sized claws for such a little feller. Hopefully they'll let it go when it's big enough to have a chance of surviving on its own...

2015-04-18 - Oceans continue heating up, especially in the northern hemisphere, and methane continues spewing from the Arctic:

Quote: "School administrators say the bad smell that has persisted for several months could force teachers and students to relocate. 'It stinks very bad,' said Malachi Revels. 'It smells like rotten eggs and fish. One student threw up.' The mysterious odor is plaguing John B. Cary Elementary."

Note: In that last link they say it's safe but they don't know what it is. Well, if they don't know what it is then they sure as hell don't know that it's safe! What kind of 'logic' is that? If your kid comes up to you with a blob of unidentifiable crap and asks if they can eat it, are you going to say sure, it must be safe because you can't identify it? Derp. That's highly likely hydrogen sulfide infiltrating that building via the sewer or water systems. The people there may suffer long-term brain/kidney/heart damage, unless they just keel over dead first...

2015-04-27 - Volcanic eruptions and large earthquakes escalating across the planet:

Quote: "If it seems like earthquakes and erupting volcanoes are happening more frequently, that’s because they are. Looking at global magnitude six (M6) or greater from 1980 to 1989 there was an average of 108.5 earthquakes per year, from 2000 to 2009 the planet averaged 160.9 earthquakes per year: that is a 38.9% increase of M6+ earthquakes in recent years."

Quote: "Unrest also seems to be growing among the world’s super-volcanoes. Iceland (which is home to some of the most dangerous volcanoes on the planet), Santorini in Greece, Uturuncu in Bolivia, the Yellowstone and Long Valley calderas in the U.S., Laguna del Maule in Chile, Italy’s Campi Flegrei – almost all of the world’s active super-volcanic systems are now exhibiting some signs of inflation, an early indication that pressure is building in these volcanic systems."

2015-04-27 - Volcanic eruptions becoming more violent:

Quote: "We are beginning to witness more aggressive activity from the world’s eruptive volcanic systems. Chile’s Calbuco, Peru’s Ubinas volcano, Indonesia’s Mt. Sinabung volcano, Mexico’s Colima volcano, and Costa Rica’s Turrialba volcano are not the only volcanoes ejecting high altitude ash plumes in more powerful eruptions these days – the list of volcanoes across the globe now experiencing similar simultaneous activity is growing."

2015-04-27 - Mount Sinabung erupts in Indonesia, burns some villages:

2015-04-27 - Volcano Ubinas erupts seven times in two weeks in Peru, emergency declared:

2015-04-27 - Volcano Kilauea filling up with lava in Hawaii, almost to overflowing now:

Note: All of this escalating volcanic and seismic activity around the planet is exactly as predicted by MISA Theory in 2010 and retrospectively corroborated by one of the finest geology teams on the planet two years later in 2012. Everything is connected. MISA Theory leads to the Jumping Jack Flash Hypothesis, and that leads to the end of human civilization as we know it, at least on the surface of the Earth...

Quote: "More than a hundred spectators at the Singapore Sports Hub collapse in their seats as smoke fills the air. Some lie on the ground, twitching and foaming at the mouth. Others are wheezing in the stands, gasping for breath. This was the scene there last Friday night following a mock terrorist attack."

Note: Also perfect training for when a big ol' cloud of hydrogen sulfide blows ashore, like the cloud of 'toxic gas of unknown origin' that hit coastal Rayong (Thailand) in the middle of the night, sending thousands fleeing from their homes puking, mentioned in the 2014-06-08 update. The Earth seems waaaaay more likely to hit Singapore with poison gas than any terrorists, but they're not going to mention that...

2015-04-28 - St. Louis Zoo getting 2.5-year-old 850-pound orphaned polar bear:

Quote: "Kali ended up in the Alaska Zoo, and then the Buffalo Zoo. Now, he’s 2 and a half years old, and about 850 pounds. He’ll soon be transferred from Buffalo to the brand new McDonnell Polar Bear Point in St. Louis. The 40,000 square foot, $16 million habitat is almost finished. It will include a deep pool with underwater viewing, plus a splash pool, and rocks, boulders, grass and fallen trees for Kali to play. It’s more than twice the size of the old polar bear pits, which were built roughly a century ago."

Note: This bear's got a veritable bear mansion waiting for him!

2015-04-29 - New volcanic island still growing off the coast of Japan, now 1.5 miles wide, eruptions continue:

Quote: "Since a plume of smoke first appeared above the ocean waves of the Pacific some 500 miles SE of Tokyo, Nishinoshima Volcano has grown exponentially larger. Now near 2500 meters (7500 feet / 1.5 miles) across in a very short amount of time (months). The Japanese Coast Guard has done another flyover of the newly formed Island which reveals an ongoing eruption that has not ceased since the islands above sea formation."

2015-04-29 - Volcano Ruapehu shaking like it did before the 2006 eruption, in New Zealand:

2015-04-29 - Mount Dempo shaking in Indonesia, alert level raised:

Quote: "It is recommended not to approach the crater within 1 km. The volcano's crater contains a large acid lake and a very active hydrothermal system. Phreatic or phreatomagmatic explosions could occur any time and would pose a significant risk. The last eruptions in 2006 and 2009 were both phreatic."

2015-04-29 - Cascadia Subduction Zone reacts to tidal forces, 'slow slip' building up pressure on fault:

2015-04-30 - Hundreds of methane gas flares found spewing methane from the seafloor near Gisborne (New Zealand):,tst

Quote: "They remapped the area and discovered that every area of carbonate rock and every fault seen on the seafloor was expelling gas. They believe there are 766 individual gas flares within the area."

Quote: "Preliminary indications are that methane is reaching the ocean surface - this is the first time this has been measured in New Zealand..."

2015-04-30 - HazMat event, rotten-egg odor hits business in Springdale (Arkansas), nothing found:

Quote: "Firefighters said a portion of the building was evacuated after a 'rotten egg smell' was reported, but there was no hazardous gas or odor found."

Note: What kind of detectors did they use? Probably just natural gas detectors. They add methyl mercaptan to natural gas so that it has any smell at all and methyl mercaptan smells like rotten eggs. But so does hydrogen sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide won't show up on natural gas detectors. Hydrogen sulfide will also sink to the ground, flow to basements, and adsorb onto matter, and once it's adsorbed onto matter - like wood, concrete, etc - then it won't show up on gas detectors even if you DO have a hydrogen sulfide gas detector. But it can still poison you via skin contact with the contaminated matter...

2015-04-30 - Volcano Calbuco erupts again, third time in a week, in Chile:

Quote: "The Chilean volcano that erupted spectacularly twice last week is causing more chaos after once again spewing a cloud of ash and gas into the sky. Calbuco began erupting again today, sending a massive plume of smoke into the clear blue sky. The volcano spewed over 200 million tonnes of ash last week, coating nearby towns, wrecking the local salmon industry, and forcing the cancellation of flights as far as Buenos Aires, some 870 miles away."

2015-04-30 - Volcano Piton de la Fournaise rumbling on Reunion Island (France):

Quote: "A new eruption could be on its way at the volcano. A sharp increase in volcanic CO2 emissions, significant deformation of the Dolomieu crater, and a migration of earthquakes from deep to shallow (7 km) levels, as well as earthquakes near the surface itself that have appeared over the past weekend suggest new magma is on its rise to a possible new eruption, which would be the second in 2015."

2015-04-30 - Magnitude 6.7 earthquake strikes off the coast of Papua New Guinea:

2015-04-30 - Windows mysteriously shattering in Colorado:

Quote: "Authorities in Northern Colorado are investigating three more cases of shattered windows, bringing the total number to eight since April 21."

Note: Some were from bullets, but some have no apparent cause. Over the last coupla three years, I've noticed numerous planes coming down because their windows crack during flight. And there've been some anecdotal reports of shower doors mysteriously shattering too. I don't know for sure what the cause is, but hydrogen sulfide is corrosive to steel and concrete so it's not a huge stretch to think that it might have some effect on at least some kinds of glass as well, degrading the glass over time and causing it to shatter unexpectedly here and there...

2015-04-30 - College woman, 20, with two bags of weed enters man's room, strips naked, jumps on his bed, in Flagstaff (Arizona):

Quote: "According to the Arizona Daily Sun, police are surprisingly referring to that man as a 'victim' after a 20-year-old Northern Arizona University sorority girl ran into his apartment last Friday afternoon, removed her clothing, jumped on his bed and asked, 'Am I pretty?' Instead of saying 'Hell yeah,' the man called police. When they arrived at his apartment, they found Makena Marie Haydon (pictured above, photo via Facebook) naked as a jaybird on the second-floor exterior balcony 'yelling incoherently.'"

Note: Poor guy, I hope he recovers from this traumatic experience!
