Event Update For 2017-06-01

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.

2017-06-01 - Unknown odor hits apartment building in Hudson (Massachusetts), 2 firefighters sickened:

Quote: "Hazmat crews responded to a large apartment complex in Hudson Thursday after an unknown odor was reported. The first two firefighters who entered a common area of the 118-unit building were overcome."

Quote: "Crews tested air levels in the building, but found nothing to explain what sickened the two firefighters."

Quote: "The cause of the incident remains a mystery."

2017-06-01 - Unknown odor sickens people at three schools in Ferndale (Washington):

Quote: "Students and staff at several Ferndale schools said they felt sick after smelling an odor in the area Thursday, schools Superintendent Linda Quinn said. Staff first reported the smell around 12:20 p.m., according to a school district Facebook post. Students and staff at Horizon Middle School and Cascadia and Eagleridge elementary schools reported feeling sick. Skyline Elementary School may have smelled the same odor."

2017-06-01 - Rotten egg odor hits school in Ramsey (New Jersey):

Quote: "The odor of gas in a Ramsey school led to an evacuation Thursday morning, officials said.

No gas leak was found, but the Mineral Point Fire Department did detect a small amount of CO2 in a remote location."

Note: Obviously wasn't that CO2, since A) CO2 is odorless; and B) the CO2 was in a remote location anyway. The fact that they thought it might be a gas leak means it was a rotten egg odor...

One of the first firefighters on the scene said he felt faint and a hazmat crew was brought in to test the air, but nothing was found that could have produced the bad smell."

  1. Great report today, as usual, Jonny.
    Your explanation of Keynesian economics is spot on and had me laughing out loud.

    More on that boat explosion yesterday. We have an example of multiple human error here.

    For some reason, a person on the boat failed to follow proper procedure when fueling. First off everyone is supposed to be off the boat and all open areas are to be closed. The guy put the fuel nozzle in a FISHING ROD HOLDER and pumped 28 gallons of gas under the boat! A person from the marine's towing service saw the sheen and alerted the people on the boat not to start it and (3rd mistake) told them to disconnect the battery - which then sparked, causing the explosion.
