Event Update For 2017-02-16

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.

2017-02-16 - Two men and woman found dead in water tank at home near Gunning (Australia):

Quote: "Andrew, 69, was conducting routine maintenance on the cement tank when he lost consciousness. His 60-year-old brother, Robert, then went into the tank to check on him and also passed out, acting Hume LAC police commander Andrew Koutsoufis said this morning. Robert Basnett, 60, was killed when he went to check on his brother inside the water tank. Shortly after, Andrew's wife, Anne, entered the tank and subsequently collapsed."

Note: Whatever killed these people had to be a heavier-than-air gas, because it accumulated at the BOTTOM of the water tank, which rules out carbon monoxide. It also had to be a 'knockdown agent' with instant or near-instant effects, because of how fast these people kept collapsing when they got into the bottom of the tank, which rules out carbon dioxide. So that rules out all the things they want to blame this on. This area is about 60 miles from the coast, or about 2 hours as the gas blows from the ocean, with a stiff breeze. Numerous people have died in bodies of water in the last month or so up and down the coastline near here too. What this most looks like is the event where three men died from hydrogen sulfide poisoning in a sewer trench last month in coastal Key Largo (Florida), mentioned in the 2017-01-16 update. They died exactly like these three people died in Australia. First, one man collapsed, then another man went to help and he collapsed, then a third man went to help and he collapsed, and they all died...

    You had your A/C on? Geez! It's supposed to be like spring for the next few days around here. Oh the weather people are all smiling and happy telling us this, like spring coming at least a month early is nothing to worry about . .. Nobody worries about the trees not getting enough rest or that it's confusing for plant life, animals and birds. If it gets real cold again before spring, that too could be problematic for the plants that mistake a short warm spell for spring and then die in the cold. A "Heh - fooled ya!" from Mother Nature.

    Unprecedented Climate Extremes: One Year After Record Drought, Lake Oroville is Spilling Over

    We know that climate change pushes the weather toward extremes, but this is getting ridiculous. In California, in less than a span of 24 months, water levels at a key reservoir have shifted from record drought to a flood that’s now endangering the state’s water supply system. Unfortunately, it’s these kinds of extreme shifts that we’ve come to expect from human-forced climate change.

    Concerns about how an expanding sink hole in the reservoir’s wall could, in the worst case, breach the Dam wall and result in a catastrophic failure spurred operators to shut down and reduce water flows through the primary spillway. The abatement resulted in water levels at Lake Oroville rising to above 901 feet. This triggered an automatic over-spill into a second emergency spillway (the first time this has happened in the Dam’s history). But over-topping water also produced severe erosion — igniting more concerns of structural failure. And on the weekend of February 10th -12th, nearly 200,000 people were evacuated from the Dam’s outflow zone as a potential catastrophic structural failure could cause a 30 foot wall of water to rush through numerous downstream communities.

    Mystery illness plagues residents one year after historic US gas leak

    A year after the largest methane leak in U.S. history was sealed in Porter Ranch, California, residents are continuing to experience significant adverse health consequences. As SoCalGas — the company responsible for the blowout — uses fabricated gas shortages to justify reopening the Aliso Canyon gas storage facility, which has been shut down indefinitely since the leak occurred, a local doctor is now speaking out.

    Dr. Jeffrey Nordella has been treating Porter Ranch residents since the blowout of an underground methane storage well caused tons of methane gas to spewing the atmosphere in October 2015. A total of 5 billion cubic feet of methane was released into the atmosphere from October 23 to February 18, "or enough pollution to match the annual output of nearly 600,000 cars," The Guardian noted shortly after it was sealed.

    Though the leak was sealed last February, residents have continued to complain of symptoms.

    Nordella says that since the gas leak began, he has been inundated with patients of all ages.

    "Those symptoms were broad but yet had a common denominator. Eye and nasal irritation, headache, nosebleed, sore throat, loss of voice, cough, shortness of breath, palpitations, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, and skin rashes were among the most common," he said during a press conference at his urgent care facility last Wednesday.

    "clearly different from those with a common upper respiratory tract infection, seasonal allergies, sinus infections, and viral bronchitis." He also said multiple contaminants could be causing the variety of health issues.
