Event Update For 2017-03-07

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.

2017-03-07 - Woman, 67, ignites while burning trash and burns to death, in Sumter (South Carolina):

Quote: "Sumter County deputies told media outlets that the woman set the trash on fire Tuesday afternoon and her clothes also caught fire. Authorities say the woman ran into the woods and died. She also set off a small brush fire that firefighters were able to put out."

    E.P.A. head stacks agency with global warming denialists – “For the first time, I see someone who has no commitment to the mission of the agency”

    Days after the Senate confirmed him as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference and was asked about addressing a group that probably wanted to eliminate his agency.
    “I think it’s justified,” he responded, to cheers. “I think people across the country look at the E.P.A. the way they look at the I.R.S.”
    In the days since, Mr. Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general who built a career out of suing the agency he now leads, has moved to stock the top offices of the agency with like-minded conservatives — many of them skeptics of climate change and all of them intent on rolling back environmental regulations that they see as overly intrusive and harmful to business.

    Happily Going Down With The Titanic

    Even as the Fed prepares to raise rates one week from today, the GDP forecast for Q1 continues to "quietly fall through the floor". How can this happen? Insert rant here. In a nutshell deja vu of 2008, the Fed is focused on transient "inflationary" factors such as a one time increase in the minimum wage following the election. Worse yet, they are keying off the stock market and speculative appetite. Thirdly they are looking at Consumer ConnedFidence which is soaring for no reason other than stock price appreciation. Remember, Janet Yellen got the job because with reference to Lehman she "did not see any of that coming until it happened". You're hired...
