Event Update For 2016-11-23

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.

2016-11-23 - Fissures bubbling hydrogen sulfide and other gases off the coast of New Zealand near Kaikora:

Quote: "The phenomena was found in Whalers Bay by Matt Foy and Connor Stapley and it is believed they have been caused by the magnitude 7.8 quake. Dr Matthew Hughes says the bubbles are likely dissolved gases in the sea floor which have become exposed by new cracks in the rock, and are now venting to the surface. He says its very much like any other geologically active part of New Zealand. The bubbles are a combination of several different gases, but the strong smell likely comes from hydrogen sulfide. 'What the earthquake has done, is it's opened up a few new fissures and fractures in those rocks and liberated the water and the gas to the sea bed,' Dr Hughes said."

Note: Probably some methane mixed in there too...

2016-11-23 - Foul smell that's lasted a month sickening people in coastal Waialua on the island of Oahu (Hawaii):

Quote: "Something stinks in Waialua and residents say it's affecting their health. A foul odor has permeated the community for the past month and it's source hasn't yet been confirmed. Parents say the stench is so vile, it's making their children queasy. 'Both kids feeling pretty nauseous yesterday,' said one resident. 'It's worse in the mornings.' The stench daily fills homes and schools near Waialua Beach Road, residents say."

Quote: "State health officials say they will revisit the farm Wednesday since residents report the smell is as pungent as ever. 'It smelled like someone was pumping sewer water,' said Carrie Fitzsimmons, Waialua resident. She adds that she's not convinced it's rotting fish."

Note: A fish kill could cause a noxious smell, but it wouldn't last a month. Hydrogen sulfide oozing from the ocean, however, could kill some fish, cause a sickening sewery smell, AND could easily last a month (or a year, or a thousand years)...

    Reinforcements at Standing Rock
    Hundreds pour into Standing Rock ahead of Thanksgiving

    Hundreds of people continue to pour into the front-line Oceti Sakowin Camp, despite calls from the Mayor of Bismark to those opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline to return home for Thanksgiving. Marcus Lloyd (Ngāti Porou) who is at Standing Rock says the people here won't leave, instead more vehicles are arriving in support the Standing Rock's Sioux tribe.

    "People are not leaving, they're coming in droves, and vehicles have been arriving all day, all night. This morning there was a group of 600 that arrived, and they're still coming in now," says Lloyd.

    The message was put to protesters yesterday by Bismark Mayor Mike Seminary following Sunday's confrontation with armed authorities, where more than 500 were arrested.

    Mayor of Bismark Mike Seminary says, "It's now time for them to go home to their loved ones and their families, enjoy whatever holidays are important to them. And let us go about the process of rebuilding some likely damaged relationships locally."

    Comment: Yeah, as if the Native American's would think fondly of Thanksgiving (Thanks Taking), and find a "holiday" more important then what they are presently doing.

    "Thanksgiving is not used very positively in the camp. This is not a day for recognising the other story of the history here, it's about recognising what's happening here," says Lloyd.

    Marcus is part of a group of six other Māori who have been at the camp since Sunday, to support and serve the needs of the Native people. [more]
