2016-11-01 - Deadly deep-sea lake brimming with hydrogen sulfide found on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico near Louisiana:

Quote: "Nearly 3,300 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico is a circular pool 100 feet in circumference and 12 feet deep. The walls that surround it hold in a toxic mix of dense extra-salty brine tinged with methane gas and hydrogen sulfide – curious creatures that happen to wander in don’t make it out alive. Dubbed the Jacuzzi of Despair by the scientists who discovered it, the brine pool 'lake' is like an alien world."

Note: Think he'll tell the people the truth about this being the end of the world once he's briefed? Hah, no, of course not, but neither would Clinton. Both have too much invested in the status quo to speak the truth, lest their power/wealth be detrimentally affected, which it would be. On the other hand, Trump is not good at keeping secrets, so he may let the truth slip out anyway, assuming the people don't wake themselves up first, which is certainly possible since nothing at all is preventing that from happening...

2016-11-10 - Rotten egg sulfury odor sickens 58+ people at school in Murrysville (Pennsylvania), near Turtle Creek:

Quote: "Like other students, middle-schooler Susie Putnam went to a hospital because she felt nauseous with a headache and was light-headed. Jacob Sizemore, a sophomore student and an employee at Goodwill, had to evacuate twice: First at the high school where he's a student and then after he came to work at Franklin Plaza. He compared the smell to rotten eggs and sulfur."

Quote: "Officials confirmed 60 people, including 49 students from the middle school, one adult and 10 patients from other area businesses were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries."

Quote: "Despite spending much of the day in Murrysville testing the air and looking for leaks, authorities and crews from Peoples Natural Gas were unable to pinpoint the source of the natural gas odor. Whatever the source, authorities believe that winds today helped propel the nasty stink through air intake vents on the roofs of buildings, Murrysville Police Chief Thomas Seefeld said."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area. So they want to blame this on natural gas from a passing truck. They checked for natural gas and found nothing, so there's zero evidence that this was natural gas, nor is there any evidence that there was any passing truck leaking anything. Also, natural gas, being primarily methane, is a lighter-than-air gas. So if any DID leak from a truck, it'd go straight up into the atmosphere, not flow along the ground into a school, nor would natural gas cause such severe symptoms that quickly, at least not without there being an explosion or fire in short order.

Notice on the map where this occurred, just northeast (downwind) of that creek. The reason that creek is there is because that's the lowest-lying area in the vicinity, which is why water flows down into that creek and forms the creek in the first place. Such areas are where a HEAVIER-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate and concentrate when the wind isn't blowing, and then blow onward when the wind picks up, generally toward the east or northeast, like right towards that school.

So, given the fact that natural gas is a lighter-than-air gas and wouldn't leak from a truck into a school, and given the rapid onset of the symptoms mentioned, and given the fact that not one of the meters used by responders ever measured any natural gas readings at all, this had to be hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide explains the rapid-onset symptoms, the lack of natural gas readings, the entry into a school on the ground and the fact that this occurred just downwind of the lowest-lying area in the vicinity. Natural gas would explain none of these things.

This will all become very obvious when it's not just a few dozen kids sickened by an unknown sulfury odor at a school, but when there's a pile of children's corpses, and that could happen at any time now...

Note: Could be the chemocline rising to the surface there, e.g. deep water from the bottom of the sea floor rising to the surface, which also releases accumulated methane and hydrogen sulfide into the atmosphere. Or it could also be cold water from the Arctic that got pushed out by all those much larger exceptionally HOT water zones that are now in the Arctic on that map, which this article ignores, probably because they have an agenda...

2016-11-12 - Unknown cause sickens 26 people at recycling center near pier in coastal San Francisco (California):

Quote: "Roughly an hour after the spill was first reported, officials with the SFFD determined that a chemical spill was not at fault. Rather, whatever caused the scare 'was trash and standard material' — leading to the obvious question of what kind of recycling or trash is nauseating enough to make that many people ill."

Note: Trash that's adsorbed hydrogen sulfide would sicken people like that, and this place is right on the ocean too. Heck, they're lucky some of them didn't just fall over dead or start spazzing out with 'medical events' or burst into flame. Also, notice in the above events that several are trash-related: the man on fire next to the burning dumpster in the wee hours, the garbage truck facility that exploded and burned in the wee hours on the coast in Scotland, and the people that sickened at the recycling center on the coast in California...

Quote: "A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake has rocked New Zealand’s South Island, triggering a tsunami and strong aftershocks, and killing at least two people. The Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management said the quake hit just after midnight on Monday (10pm Sunday AEDT) near Hanmer Springs, about 90 kilometres from Christchurch, which was devastated five years ago by a 6.3 tremor."

Quote: "The tremor, with a magnitude initially estimated at 7.4 before being scaled up to 7.8, had a depth of 23km, according to the US Geological Survey. New Zealand's Civil Defense puts the depth at 15km. It was centered 46km from the town of Amberley with about 2,000 people, 70km from the town of Kaiapoi with 10,000 residents and 91km north-northeast of Christchurch."

And if everyone else ends up dying a year earlier or whatever, that's a sacrifice they're just gonna have to be willing to have us make...

Note: A huge methane clathrate field was discovered dissociating off the coast of Gisborne (New Zealand) in 2014, mentioned in the 2014-05-13 update. Big earthquakes like the one that occurred this week will accelerate the dissociation of such methane clathrate deposits. Gisborne is pretty far from where this quake occurred, but A) there may be (and probably are) clathrates near Kaikora too, and B) that was a big-ass quake and so may still have affected the sea floor near Gisborne...

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)...

Quote: "Warm seas around Australia's Great Barrier Reef have killed two-thirds of a 700-km (435 miles) stretch of coral in the past nine months, the worst die-off ever recorded on the World Heritage site, scientists who surveyed the reef said on Tuesday. Their finding of the die-off in the reef's north is a major blow for tourism at reef which, according to a 2013 Deloitte Access Economics report, attracts about A$5.2 billion ($3.9 billion) in spending each year. 'The coral is essentially cooked,' professor Andrew Baird, a researcher at James Cook University who was part of the reef surveys, told Reuters by telephone from Townsville in Australia's tropical north."
