Event Update For 2018-01-08





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.

2018-01-08 - Unknown 'gas smell' closes school early in Stonington (Connecticut):
http://www.wfsb.com/story/37216631/students-at-one-stonington-school-dismisses-early-due-to-smell-of-gas

Quote: "Students at one Stonington school were dismissed early on Monday morning because someone reported smelling gas in the building."

2018-01-08 - Unknown stench hits the center of Nottingham (Britain):

http://en.brinkwire.com/80006/it-smelt-like-an-abattoir-mystery-surrounds-city-centre-stench/

Quote: "Mystery surrounds a ‘gross’ smell that affronted shoppers in Nottingham City Centre this afternoon. People in the centre reported smelling something 'like a nasty lavatory' while they were out shopping at about 2pm today, January 8."

Quote: "Darren Saywell, 52, of Chesterfield, who smelt it on Clumber Street, said: 'It smelt dreadful, like bad eggs. I am a plumber so I'm used to bad smells but that got me.'"

2018-01-08 - Mysterious massive explosion and flash of light at 12:22 AM reported across huge distance in Russia:

http://endtimeheadlines.org/2018/01/mysterious-bright-flash-and-ground-shaking-explosion-over-russia/

Quote: "A very bright flash was seen over thousands of kilometers over Russia around 00:22 local time January 7, 2018 (20:22 UTC, January 6). The flash was followed by a ground-shaking explosion."

Quote: "Russian officials and scientists immediately denied there had been a Russian missile test or any reported space rock crashing to earth."

Quote: "The phenomenon which bore a similarity to a nuclear flash was seen and felt over thousands of miles in Russia."

Note: Not a missile and not a meteor - that leaves an atmospheric gas explosion, probably very high in the atmosphere to be seen and felt across such a distance. When big clouds of methane and/or hydrogen sulfide explode, they may have the explosive power of small nuclear bombs, similar in explosive force to the fission bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, but minus any radiation. Once atmospheric explosions start destroying large populated areas - which could begin at any time - then I'd think people will wake up to what's happening, although the first few times that it happens it may be blamed on terrorism, and people will probably buy that story. For a while, anyway. This area, in the far northern latitudes, is where the highest concentrations of methane are in the atmosphere...

Note: Trump owns a lot of coastal properties. All of that stuff will eventually be destroyed. His stuff isn't any more immune to the ongoing extinction event than anyone else's. Ironically, with some of his executive orders as pertains to pollution, he's hastening the destruction of his own properties and the deaths of his own children and grandchildren, along with the destruction of everyone else's property and the death of everyone on the planet, of course...

    Are we currenty facing a minor cold blip or “OMG we’re all going to freeze to death and run out of food.” ANSWER: We are looking at an unbelievable decline in the energy output of the sun which appears to be the most rapid decline in nearly 10,000 years. And this rapid cooling will have some really bad consequences…[more]

    [alright, first off, who's WE - at least one continent is baking in HEAT; i'm not sure about their solar minimum theory being accurate on a number of factors (I need to do more research this year), so i'll delay any comment about it until later; by all indications, though it's a fact that the world is actually, measurably HEATING UP. Hey, maybe it's mostly from below now, as opposed to primarily having been through solar radiation when we started serious industrial civilization. I don't know (I mean it takes a LOT of heat to warm up the oceans), but no matter how it's coming into being the ATMOSPHERE IS WARMING. Since reading Jonny's blog and communicating by e-mail, I've come to see his "heating from below" stance, so that I think it's BOTH, now actually. In whatever ratio of differential rates it's happening by both means, the result is TOO MUCH for the ice, glaciers, shelves and the all the life that depends on a stable temperature range. Now maybe long after we're gone, the Earth will once again go through the Ice cycle, but that ain't what's happening right now, far as I can tell.]

  3. Another Chelyabinsk meteorite? Huge bolide changes night into day while disintegrating in loud rattling booms over thousands of kilometers in Russia on Orthodox Christmas Day

    Was that another huge Chelyabinsk meteorite? A very bright bolide changed night into day while disintegrating in loud rattling booms especially in the three Russian republics of Bashkortostan, Udmurtia, and Tatarstanin on Orthodox Christmas Day, January 7, 2018. The deep blue flash was reported over thousands of kilometers but scientists disagree over the cause. according to some accounts, the earth moved too. Experts insist the phenomenon was not manmade: there were no reports of missile tests or explosions. But there were also no reports of meteorites striking the earth. Something massive has happened – but what? [more; UFO?]

    The Arctic mid-winter

    What is happening in the Arctic?
    http://robinwestenra.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-arctic-mid-winter.html

    Annual volume: 12,898 km³ (*record* low)
    Year–to–date average volume: 14,938 km³ (3rd lowest)
    Annual extent: 9,951,944 km² (2nd lowest)
    Year–to–date average extent: 12,121,879 km² (*record* low)

    Methane is already escaping from the ESAS seabed in massive amounts, yet the volume of these releases is likely to pick up dramatically once sunshine and ocean heat are no longer spent melting local sea ice. [more]

    Global warming has quadrupled ocean dead zones – “The decline in ocean oxygen ranks among the most serious effects of human activities on the Earth’s environment”
    http://www.desdemonadespair.net/2018/01/global-warming-has-quadrupled-ocean.html

    “Approximately half of the oxygen on Earth comes from the ocean,” said Vladimir Ryabinin, executive secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission that formed the GO2NE group. “However, combined effects of nutrient loading and climate change are greatly increasing the number and size of ‘dead zones’ in the open ocean and coastal waters, where oxygen is too low to support most marine life.”
    In areas traditionally called “dead zones,” like those in Chesapeake Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, oxygen plummets to levels so low many animals suffocate and die. As fish avoid these zones, their habitats shrink and they become more vulnerable to predators or fishing. But the problem goes far beyond “dead zones,” the authors point out. Even smaller oxygen declines can stunt growth in animals, hinder reproduction and lead to disease or even death. Low oxygen also can trigger the release of dangerous chemicals such as nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas up to 300 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, and toxic hydrogen sulfide. While some animals can thrive in dead zones, overall biodiversity falls.
    Climate change is the key culprit in the open ocean. Warming surface waters make it harder for oxygen to reach the ocean interior. Furthermore, as the ocean as a whole gets warmer, it holds less oxygen. In coastal waters, excess nutrient pollution from land creates algal blooms, which drain oxygen as they die and decompose. In an unfortunate twist, animals also need more oxygen in warmer waters, even as it is disappearing. [more]
