Event Update For 2017-07-18

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.

    80 sheep commit suicide in Turkey

    As the shepherd Ercan Ozer explains, one sheep first jumped off a cliff and then all the other 79 followed. The sheep owner tried to stop the crazy animals in vain only saving a small part of his herd.

    The shepherd cannot explains the suicide phenomenon and argues the sheep were not scared and were not in danger.

    In June 2017, a herd of 13 cows jumped to their death off of a 50 metre-high cliff leaving Swiss farmers baffled. The strange behavior is still a mystery today.

  2. Wildfire in Yosmite National Park area

    Official warns Yosemite-area fire could double again tonight

    The wildfire that's already consumed more than 48,000 acres and destroyed more than two dozen structures in the foothill town of Mariposa outside Yosemite National Park could again double in size overnight, firefighters fear.

    At one point, the fire moved a mile an hour, destroying everything in its path.

    Firefighters — 3,175 of them — are working hard to save homes, but the swift-moving flames make it hard for hand crews, engines — 413 — and the 14 airtankers to catch up.

    Eight structures had been destroyed and one damaged Wednesday morning. By 7 p.m., that number had jumped to 29 structures destroyed and five damaged. [more]

    The Larsen C Iceberg Is Already Cracking Up

    [that was quick]

    “They are lying at sea level, in the warmest part of the continent, they are sitting on salty water that melts them from below,” Eric Rignot, an ice researcher at the University of California, Irvine, said in an email earlier this month. “Warm water is the main driver (of melt) now. If warmer air is sufficient to melt the surface, then the ice shelf will break up and sea level rise from Antarctica will [be] enormous.” [more]

    Global Sea Ice Coverage Has Fallen Off a Cliff — Impacts Likely to Be Wide-Ranging

    we are now in uncharted territory as the Earth’s sea ice extent, area, and volume have fallen to never before seen lows.

    Remove a significant portion of the global sea ice, as we have done, and you’ll end up with oceans that both draw in more heat during the warmer months and bleed out more stored ocean heat into the atmosphere during the winter.
    Such heat will be both stored and delivered exactly where it can do the most harm — in the polar regions.

    But perhaps the most concerning impact of sea ice loss is an alteration to seasonal temperature exchange. More heat absorbed by oceans during summer and then ventilated back to the atmosphere during fall and winter will tend to result in a lag in global cooling into the fall season even as winter will tend to warm.

    Extreme weather events are at risk of worsening. Rates of polar warming could escalate. And disruptions to traditional seasonality will tend to become more apparent. [more]

    July 20, 1977 - The day CIA's mind control project MKULTRA became public knowledge

    "Project MKUltra" was the name given to an illegal program of human experimentation conducted by the US Central Intelligence Agency, which investigated mind control. The 1975 Church Committee hearings exposed the operation - and on July 20, 1977 a Freedom of Information Act request uncovered a cache of 20,000 documents relating to it.

    The origins of MKUltra lie in 1945, and Operation Paperclip — the secret transfer of top Nazi scientists to the US. Armed with extensive documentation on unethical Nazi human experimentation, including research into mind control, a clutch of military programs related to mental manipulation and behavioral modification were launched — including Projects CHATTER, BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE.

    Headed by former chemist Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, MKUltra began in April 1953 on the orders of then-CIA Director Allen Welsh Dulles.

    The incident, which occurred around 9.30pm created fear as some people residing in these areas, who also claimed they heard deafening sound similar to resounding explosion ran outside their houses to ascertain the cause of the strange development.

    A resident of Peter Ajibola Street, identified as Titilayo Adekunle said: "We don't know what really happened. We just saw the light suddenly and it appeared in the sky, thus submerging the prevailing darkness, which had hitherto enveloped the environment because we were already in the night."

    just now we learned that the Special Prosecutor, Robert Mueller is looking into Trump's business transactions.

    Mueller's investigation is said to have stemmed from a money laundering investigation started by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who Trump fired in March
