Event Update For 2017-07-12

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.

2017-07-12 - Car bursts into flame and kills man near Tzaneen (South Africa):

2017-07-12 - Mystery as ‘black rings of death’ emerge across globe:

Quote: "Baffled eyewitnesses have reported seeing the bizarre circles in several incidents over the past two months. The latest phenomena was spotted in the UK on Sunday afternoon near Birkenshaw, West Yorks, on the M62. The circle resembled a giant smoke ring but West Yorkshire Fire Service said there had been no reports of a fire. The Met Office also confirmed the ring also did not appear to be weather-related."

Note: Those look like carbon remnants of clouds of methane and/or hydrogen sulfide igniting in the atmosphere and burning off in 'flash fires'. If there's enough methane and/or hydrogen sulfide present, then the cloud will auto-ignite, no ignition source necessary - the atmosphere itself bursts into flame. So as the atmosphere is increasingly contaminated with both gases, you'd expect there to be 'smoke rings' like these appearing here and there, and that is happening. This won't always happen way above the ground either. Sometimes it'll happen at ground-level and ignite homes or cars, or start brush fires, or burn people to death, etc. You won't see it coming either, because both gases are invisible...

Quote: "One of the unusual features is the extensive use of cast iron ornament on the front facade. It has been said it is the finest application of cast iron on a residential building outside of New York City."

Quote: "Just before 4 a.m., the James L. Clemens House, a four-story building at 1849 Cass, near Mullanphy and Helen Street, caught fire. The St. Louis Fire Department said wind conditions were creating challenges and there were a number of spot fires from floating embers. The fire reportedly destroyed the building’s roof and a wall."

Quote: "Capt. Mosby said after firefighters were in a position to battle the Clemens House fire, they received a call for another fire about half a mile away at North 15th and Cass. When Fire officials arrived at the two-story building at North 15th and Cass they reported the structure was “fully involved” and they were taking a 'defensive stance.'"

Quote: "Then, just before 5 a.m., firefighters were called to put out a fire at a vacant two-story building in the 1600 block of Helen, which is located down the road from the original fire. After the third fire, officials with the fire department said they requested a fourth alarm to help because there were multiple structural fires in the area."

    GMO insanity: Pesticides soon to be genetically bred into DNA of crops

    Forget spraying pesticides on your food, now they'll be genetically engineered to be in your food, thanks to Monsanto's latest quiet approval via the US Environmental Protection Agency.

    The EPA just told Monsanto they could go ahead and bypass spraying our crops with carcinogenic chemicals like Round Up and just go ahead and breed them right into the crops themselves. Using a process called RNA interference, Monsanto's RNAi plant will supposedly kill pesky rootworms when they come along to chomp on them- but what else will these genetically modified crops do to beneficial bugs, the soil, and human health? The EPA has no idea, because they haven't done a single trial on RNAi-altered crops. [more]

  5. Nice shot of the new iceberg. Does it have a name? I mean it's just about the same size as our first state and it's floating around in the ocean now.
    Oh, and it's 670 ft. thick. The really important part is that it opens the door for all the glaciers it held back.

  6. Yeah, pretty huge iceberg. I was wondering stuff too, like how long would it take to drive a snowmobile across it going, say, 30 MPH. Pretty long I bet. And I did the math on the mass too - enough fresh water in that iceberg to give every person on the planet 140 tons of fresh water. If each person uses 5 gallons of water per day on average then there's enough water in that iceberg to last 7 billion people for 19 years.

  7. Geez - Nestle should look into stealing it (like they do with CA water) and bottling it up. They could build a plant and a port in the thing!


  8. Or a charity, extract the water at cost and ship it (factoring in that cost) to wherever it's needed until it's gone. No idea how long something that big might last, but I'd think some years anyway until it totally breaks apart. Heh, guess you'd have to be careful though - who knows what kinds of ancient bacteria and viruses are frozen in that thing.
