Event Update For 2017-08-01





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.

Quote: "One pond in Barnstable has been closed to swimming, and three more have been placed on advisory status due to high levels of cyanobacteria, a toxic algae that can be harmful to humans and pets. Schoolhouse Pond in Hyannisport has been closed, due to toxic algae that has collected and formed a thick film - like soup or paint - on the surface. This condition presents moderate to severe risks for people, and a higher risk for pets according to the town of Barnstable's website. Lovells Pond in Marstons Mills, Long Pond in Centerville and No Bottom Pond in Cotuit have been identified as having toxic algae present that has not yet collected on the surface, presenting a low to minimal health risk to people, and a higher risk for pets."

    NAACP issues first-ever travel advisory for a state: Missouri
    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/naacp-issues-first-ever-travel-advisory-for-a-state-missouri/ar-AApjKh4

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. _ NAACP officials say their recent travel advisory for Missouri is the first that the civil rights group has issued for any state.

    The Missouri travel advisory is the first time an NAACP conference has ever made one state the subject of a warning about discrimination and racist attacks, a spokesman for the national organization said Tuesday.

    Missouri became the first because of recent legislation making discrimination lawsuits harder to win, and in response to longtime racial disparities in traffic enforcement and a spate of incidents cited as examples of harm coming to minority residents and visitors, say state NAACP leaders.

    'Flash drought'- towards the dust bowl that never goes way

    This is going to become more and more of a theme

    ‘Flash drought’ could devastate half the High Plains wheat harvest
    http://robinwestenra.blogspot.com/2017/08/flash-drought-towards-dust-bowl-that.html

    Recently, as the climate has warmed and crop suitability has shifted, the Dakotas and Montana have surpassed Kansas as the most important wheat-growing region in the country. The High Plains is now a supplier of staple grain for the entire world. According to recent field surveys, more than half of this year’s harvest may already be lost. [more]

    Extreme heat in Europe

    Follow up on the heat wave – Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017
    http://robinwestenra.blogspot.com/2017/08/extreme-heat-in-europe.html

    [now THIS is how SOTT should report on weather incidents]
    Europe is still divided in two halfs with much cooler temps across W Europe and hot weather further ESE with deep trough over W Europe and an intense ridge over ESE Europe. Much of south, central and eastern Europe will experience well above average day with extremely hot temperatures locally. A cooler period remains across western amd northern Europe in the wake of the troughs.

    Looking ahead, an intense heat wave should continue over the weekend into early next week. A break in this pattern is likely by mid next week when a trough will be pushed into central Europe and ridge moves into SE Europe. Expect 6-12°C too warm daily temps in many areas until then, locally heat records could be broken. [more]

    Reflation is a global hoax. Which proves you CAN fool all of the people every time with exceptional bullshit

    Fake reflation originated entirely as a U.S. concept when Forrest Trump got elected. Vast sums of capital flowed out of the rest of the world to the U.S. But when it turned out he couldn't find his ass with both hands, Wall Street magically exported the fake reflation meme to the rest of the world. First to Europe, and now it's chasing Emerging Markets:

    All of which is deja vu of 2011 wherein the rest of the world bought into global reflation just before it massively imploded [more]
