Event Update For 2016-12-29





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.

Quote: "Another three men have drowned in New South Wales, only hours after the body of a teenage boy was recovered from the surf at Maroubra Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs."

Quote: "A body was found in Murrumbidgee River, near Wagga Wagga, and it is believed to be 42-year-old Peter Abd-El-Kaddous who went missing on Wednesday. Police are still searching for Peter Abd-El-Kaddous, known as Pace, who went missing while swimming in the Murrumbidgee River on Wednesday. Police had been searching for Mr Abd-El-Kaddous, after he went missing while swimming with a family member two days ago. Police established a crime scene but said there were no suspicious circumstances involved. A 27-year-old man died this afternoon while swimming with friends at the Mermaid Pools in Tahmoor, south-west of Sydney. The Pakistani national was unconscious when he was pulled from the lake about 12:30pm and died at the scene. About 2:00pm a 46-year-old man was pulled from the water at Kolora Lake Reserve at Yamba, on the north coast of NSW."

Quote: "A 73-year-old man is the latest to die after he was pulled out of the water unconscious at Brighton Le Sands at about 4pm."

Note: Whew, people dropping like flies now in bodies of water in Australia. There were some events leading up to this. First the Great Barrier Reef started dying, experiencing the worst coral die-off ever recorded. Then some divers died while diving near the Great Barrier Reef. Then some storms blew in off the ocean and swept through Australia and eight people dropped dead from 'thunderstorm asthma'. Assume for a moment that the rain had gotten contaminated with hydrogen sulfide and that's what actually killed those eight people. What then happens to the rain? It flows downhill and ends up in bodies of water. And then people go swimming in those bodies of water and, just like the divers who died, the swimmers start dying too. Obviously not every raindrop in a storm will be poisonous, and not every body of water will be contaminated. But you won't know whether rain is or isn't deadly and you won't know if bodies of water are deadly either. You can always jump in and see if you die, and it looks like people are doing eactly that, albeit unknowingly, and some are dying...

2016-12-29 - Person, 35, drops dead at same time as another person collapses unconscious, in Chandigarh (India):
http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/chandigarh/community/man-s-body-found-under-mysterious-circumstances/343573.html

Quote: "The police said a victim, identified as Ashok Kumar (35), a resident of Naya Gaon, was declared brought dead, while another person, Bains, was admitted to the hospital. The victim didn’t have any injury marks and the police claimed it to be a case of natural death."

Note: So they don't think these two people collapsing at the same time in the same place have anything to do with one another, and it was just mere coincidence that the 35-year-old happened to drop dead from a 'natural death' at the same time as the other person collapsed unconscious next to him. Uh huh...

Quote: "The huge and mysterious 'anomaly' is thought to be lurking beneath the frozen wastes of an area called Wilkes Land. It stretches for a distance of 151 miles across and has a maximum depth of about 848 metres. Some researchers believe it is the remains of a truly massive asteroid which was more than twice the size of the Chicxulub space rock which wiped out the dinosaurs."

  1. Looks like we reached the end of another "interesting" year, Jonny. Events are still corroborating your various details of JJFH - planes (even simulators now) and watercraft bursting into flames, people zombie-fying all over the place (though I don't recall too many from other countries besides ours), accidents and atmospheric gas troubles adding up, die-offs of many species (including pollinators, marine life, birds, trees, and humans) in increasing numbers, building explosions and fires, and more. It's been another year of ignoring the obvious on the climate, the political scene, economic conditions, society, and still no acknowledgement that anything is out of the ordinary when it clearly is (this is known as 'gas-lighting' by the msm). Thanks for keeping us informed of the truth, Jonny.

    All the best in the New Year to you and yours and all your readers! Let's try to make it safely through 2017. i'll post some stats on our favorite subjects after your Dec. 31st report.

    The fire struck four apartment buildings containing eight apartments, Fox news reported, citing Clark County Fire Department, which added that all were under construction. [more]

    THE MOST IMPORTANT INTERVIEW OF 2016

    This is possibly one of the most significant interviews of 2016 in which Peter Wadhams brings us up-to- date with the collapse of Arctic sea ice in winter (which is unprecedented and unpredicted) and all that it means for changes in global climate.

  2. Yeah, whew, quite a year it's been! Started with that high-rise going up in flames on New Years Eve in coastal Dubai (in the 2015-12-31 update but it carried through into the 1st), and we're finishing up with a swath of cities getting hit by rotten egg odors, with calamities of all kinds in between.

    I'm sure 2017 will be very 'interesting' too. Have a safe New Years, everyone, and good luck on making it to the end of 2017 too!

  3. Let's lighten up the mood a little with some strange facts from PA. We have more New Years eve "drops" than any other state. Here's a list:

  4. Another sound reason (assuming one cares about their environment) for the complete cessation of commercial Xmas:

    Returned gifts are creating an environmental disaster
    http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/returned-gifts-are-creating-an-environmental-disaster

    But here’s something you probably didn’t know: Many of those returns aren’t going to make it back into store inventory and onto shelves. Instead, they will rack up a giant carbon footprint as they wind their way through a network of middlemen and resellers and, at each step, a share of those goods will be discarded in landfills.

    “It’s a huge environmental impact,” says Tobin Moore, co-founder and CEO of Optoro, a technology company focused on improving the “reverse logistics” of consumer returns. “It’s over 4 billion pounds of [landfill] waste generated a year in the U.S. from reverse logistics.” [more; great term there, "reverse logistics" - just hides the waste and impact]

  5. What gets me, as much as the fact that human civilization is rapidly approaching it's terminal phase, is that some more-or-less unknown dude, from somewhere in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of middle-class America has a valid explanation for why much of it is happening (even though with Fukushima we've got an ELE just on it's own as Tom remarked a day or two ago )But to top it all off ( and to start a sentence with a conjunction ) this "dude"/guy/person comes up with really funny jokes just about every day of the week ( and Tom as well ! ) What's the chances of all that coinciding ?! I make JJFH blogspot my first port-of-call every day but rarely comment as I don't know what to say - I mean words fail under the circumstances. Still asking can it all possibly be true even though the evidence is all around regardless of where one is in the world. Anyway, Happy New Year and all the best to you guys. I just hope this website is not being generated by a shadow government super computer just to mock and mislead people like me who think they have some idea of what's going on! I always retain a degree of skepticism about everything but as I remarked the evidence is there for all to see even though there's not a man in a million bothering to look. The s**t has already hit the fan no doubt - methane is spewing out in gynormous amounts all over the place..........time for a cup of tea.........best of luck from Sydney Australia.

  6. Middle of nowhere?! I'll have you know, St. Louis is the #1 murder capital of the US! If you're looking to be murdered, this is the place to go! Plus, we have beer.

  7. Aye, mate! You've been experiencing it first-hand down under - we read about it all the time (as you know). As for commenting - do what ya feel! When you wanna say something, go ahead and type out your thoughts! And since the NSA is listening and has a log of it all in some non-descript subterranean vault in a long-abandoned warehouse in parts unknown, nobody cares any more - we're all out of here in short order either way. All we're doing is documenting our experience on the way out. Oh, and though we could be a hologram - we still have to act it all out. Around here, this type of joking is called 'gallows humor.'

    A master of deceit and treachery, the son and grandson of traitors, George H. W. Bush, Sr. leveraged his CIA and drug business contacts into a complete subversion of the Constitution.

  8. Well, given that about St Louis Jonny, I might just pop over there, drink a few gallons of beer and walk around the dodgiest parts of town mouthing off like a gormless twit and see what happens - just for a laugh. Hey Tom, thanks.
