Event Update For 2017-03-13





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.

2017-03-13 - Man, 20, burns to death in burning car on Dryden Road in Almont (Michigan):
http://thecountypress.mihomepaper.com/news/2017-03-15/News/Car_fire_claims_life_of_Lake_Orion_man.html

Quote: "The body of a Lake Orion man, 20, was found in the back seat of a vehicle that caught fire Monday night on Dryden Road.  The fatal fire is under investigation by the Almont Police Dept. to determine whether the incident was accidental or a suicide."

Note: I bet his car ignited and he tried to escape but his doors were locked and windows up and they weren't working, so he retreated to the back seat trying to avoid the flames. But that just buys you a minute or so, and maybe not even that long. Best to have something in your car at all times with which to cut seat belts and smash windows, because you may only have seconds to act once your car ignites. A man just had to watch his daughter burn to death after their car ignited and he couldn't open the door and he had nothing to break the windows, in Laiwu (China), mentioned in the 2017-03-08 update...

2017-03-13 - Increasing amounts of methane belching from the sea floor in the Arctic:
http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2017/03/methane-erupting-from-arctic-ocean-seafloor.html

Quote: "Large amounts of methane are erupting from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean. These methane eruptions are often missed by measuring stations, because these stations are located on land, while measurements are typically taken at low altitude, thus missing the methane that rises in plumes from the Arctic Ocean. By the time the methane reaches the coast, it has typically risen to higher altitudes, thus not showing up in low-altitude measurements taken at stations on land."

Quote: "The danger is that self-reinforcing feedback loops such as albedo decline and methane releases will further accelerate warming and will, in combination with further warming elements, cause a temperature rise as high as 10°C or 18°F by the year 2026, as described at the extinction page."

    Is Ocean Temperature Rising From Global Warming? New Discovery Made
    "The international team found from 1960 to 2015, ocean warming throughout the world was 13 percent greater than estimates by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The data also showed that in the 1990s, warming began to spread deeper into the ocean: from 700 meters to 2,000 meters. While previous estimates by the IPCC showed ocean warming to account for 30 percent to 40 percent of sea level rise, the study found the figure was more like 50 percent."

  4. Dooooooom overload! I'll add this too: giant chunk of ice 20 times bigger than New York has mysteriously turned green in Antarctica:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/779141/Green-ice-Antarctica-NASA-pictures-mystery-theory

    Some kind of algae or bacteria growing on the ice? Almost doesn't matter what it is - whatever it is, it isn't white, therefore that ice will absorb more heat. Well, I guess it does matter, actually. Because if it's some kind of algae or bacteria, and if it spreads over MORE ice, then this problem will worsen.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Was thinking more about that green ice there. There were some stories about big mucky-muck government types visiting Antarctica recently. What if it's about this, and it IS a bacteria or algae, and it's GOING to spread? What if Antarctica's ice, as a consequence, has, say, ten years left? That's 200 feet of sea level rise, if all of Antarctica melts. Buh-bye every major coastal city on the planet, and most of the major cities on the planet ARE coastal cities.

    I guess we'll see what we'll see!

    https://www.sott.net/article/345270-Unsealed-court-docs-reveal-Monsanto-colluded-with-EPA-was-unable-to-prove-Roundup-does-not-cause-cancer

    Monsanto, the $60 billion behemoth, couldn't possibly afford the $250,000 bill that would come with conducting a legitimate scientific study led by accredited scientists. Instead, they decided to "ghost-write" key sections of their report themselves and plotted to then have the independent scientists just "sign their names so to speak." [amid more]

    https://www.sott.net/article/345297-Germ-scientists-prove-5-sec-rule-for-dropping-food-on-the-floor-is-true

    You can safely eat food dropped on the floor as long as you pick it up within five seconds, according to a germ expert, thus proving the so-called 'five-second rule.'

    "Obviously, food covered in visible dirt shouldn't be eaten, but as long as it's not obviously contaminated, the science shows that food is unlikely to have picked up harmful bacteria from a few seconds spent on an indoor floor," he told the Independent. "Our research has shown that the nature of the floor surface, the type of food dropped on the floor and the length of time it spends on the floor can all have an impact on the number that can transfer."

    Seaborne Fukushima Radiation Plume Hits West Coast — How the Media Reported it Dangerously Wrong
    http://www.environews.tv/121716-no-safe-level-period-media-got-dangerously-wrong-fukushima-radiation-hitting-west-coast/

    “It is not a question any more: radiation produces cancer, and the evidence is good all the way down to the lowest doses,” says the late Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkley, in his book Nuclear Witnesses: Insiders Speak Out.

    On December 12, 2016, EnviroNews USA’s own Editor-in-Chief Emerson Urry touched off a firestorm with his news article titled, “It’s Finally Here: Radioactive Plume From Fukushima Makes Landfall on America’s West Coast,” which claimed “medical science and epidemiological studies have demonstrated time and again that there is no safe amount of radiation for a living organism to be subjected to — period.”
    In his piece, Urry also exposed other news agencies like NBC, the New York Post, USA Today and The Inquisitr, catching them with their pants down, in the act of repeating the false assertions of the U.S. and Canadian researchers, telling people not to worry about the recently detected low amounts of cesium 134 found in salmon, and that the levels were within “safe” or “accepted” thresholds for human health.
    In an email to EnviroNews, nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen said Japan had raised the maximum allowable exposure by 20 times the previous number for civilians to be able to return to their homes. The U.S. and the EPA have considered such plans in the case of a nuclear accident. In food, the U.S. has an allowable dosage of radiation that is 12 times what Japan allows.

    “Corporations get the benefit, civilians take the risk,” Gundersen wrote. [more; see video interviews below article]
