Event Update For 2017-03-16

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.

    Massive house explosion puzzles Washington, DC suburb

    A house explosion that shook the Washington, DC suburb of Rockville, Maryland could be felt miles away. Authorities are still looking for the man who lived at the house, which was supposed to be auctioned off.

    The first reports of an explosion came about 12:38 am on Friday, and calls were received from suburbs several miles away, Montgomery County fire officials said. It took 75 firefighters about 20 minutes to subdue the blaze that followed the explosion.

    "It's just a pile of debris; it's just a pile of bricks. There's not anything left of the house," he told reporters. "There is collateral damage to several nearby homes."

    "There is no concern about a gas involvement in this explosion," Goldstein said. [more]

    Global Coordinated Mega Collapse aka. Fake Wealth Effect

    It's becoming very clear now via the various coalescing data points, that the world's largest net importer of capital fabricated an echo reflation compliments of the entire rest of the world. Financial reflation papered over economic deflation via the trickle down fake wealth effect...

    In other words, Central Banks conned themselves this time.
