Event Update For 2017-07-01

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.

Category: Fires And Explosions

2017-07-01 - More methane domes explode and burn and create craters on the Yamal Peninsula (Russia):

Quote: "Locals say they saw flames and smoke as a major bubble of methane blasted below the surface and created another sinkhole in the Russian Arctic peninsula. Reindeer herders in the area of Seyakh, a village on the eastern coast of the Yamal Peninsula in the morning of June 28th reported the incident to the local authorities. They say that they from the distance saw flaring flames and a column of smoke from the area, TASS reports. It is believed that the explosion took place place about 30-40 km from Seyakh."

Quote: "The formation of both craters involved an explosion followed by fire, evidently signs of the eruption of methane gas pockets under the Yamal surface."

Note: These methane domes exploding are going to be like what happens when you cook popcorn. First there's one or two 'popping' then a few more then more, and so on, rising in frequency to a crescendo, then eventually falling again in frequency as there are fewer left TO explode - a bell curve. I highly doubt the human race will be around by the time these methane explosions reach their frequency peak. And as more methane and hydrogen sulfide contaminate the atmosphere, there will be, among other things, problems with planes and other aircraft, with aircraft smoking or igniting or just plain exploding mid-air...

2017-07-01 - Small plane explodes mid-air then crashes in Chatsworth (Georgia), 4 killed:

Quote: "The spokesperson initially said that witnesses reported seeing the plane 'explode in the air,' but later said that information didn't appear to be correct. However, the sheriff later verified that information mostly likely is correct. 'Most of the the people are telling us that the plane did come apart in the air, and from what we've found at the scene, that's evidently what's going to have happened,' Langford said."

Note: This is the 62nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2017...

  1. Okay, last time before I smash this fucking frustrating piece of shit goddamn phone on the cement. Of course it's my fault for fumbling fingers and inadvertent button pushing, but it's extremely annoying. I may just stop commenting until I get back and have a real keyboard to use instead of this tiny
    and poorly designed one.

    I'm going to do it in small bytes to try to at least salvage something for all the waste of time i'm incurring.

    Way to end today's significant report with a good laugh, Jonny - thanks!

    The reason I said that today's post is significant is because it's one of those that illustrates a ramp-up in intense JJFH incidents - like the power outage that effected most of Central America and the methane gas explosion in the Yamal region which effects the atmosphere (and therefore the climate).

    I see the convergence of economic,
    socio-political, environmental and atmospheric conditions degrading to the point that the rate of these significant, large scale events cause the collapse of civilization in the next bunch of years, which will be realized by everyone to be irreversible by 2019.
