Event Update For 2018-02-09





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.

  1. Over the past year or so - as long as I've been counting - Hull incidents happen far more often than garbage truck fires, but not this month! Hull has been rather quiet (only 1 incident) so far while there have already been 5 garbage trucks destroyed by fire. Lots of time left.

    Another case where a firefighter needed medical assistance after being on call.

    So many homes destroyed by fire (including apartment buildings), too many people dropping dead and crazy accidents, including 2 float planes in the same location! Not good.

    That H2S that was released from underground via the drilling rig is now floating around the atmosphere, joining all the other leaks, plumes and bubbles being emitted constantly now.

    It's been raining for at least 2 days here, foggy at times too.

    One-two punch of disease and Irma has left Florida citrus reeling
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/one-two-punch-of-disease-and-irma-has-left-florida-citrus-reeling/ar-BBIXxYt

    Irma knocked 50 to 90 percent of Florida's citrus fruit to the ground in places, according to the state commissioner of agriculture, Adam Putnam, causing $760 million in damage in the worst year for Florida oranges since 1945.
    But more was damaged than just a year's crop.

    Citrus accounts for approximately 45,000 full- and part-time jobs in the state. Hurricane Irma is credited with wiping out nearly 56,000 jobs directly and indirectly tied to Florida's agricultural sector and dealing a $2.39 billion blow to labor income. [more]

    http://ponziworld.blogspot.com/2018/02/voodoo-economics-indeed.html

    The boy-men on Zerohedge are crying at the fate that has befallen them. Shocked, I tell you, that this is all ending badly...

    To settle for less than "it all", is to compromise. Because to settle for less than it ALL is to be "socialist". We've devolved into a society of low-functioning crack addicts, fantasizing about their long-ago day in the sun...

    It's called voodoo economics for a reason: because you have to be a total fucking zombie to believe in it...RepubliCons believe that trade is *free* and money is *free*, they'll be shocked to learn they're wrong on both counts. [more]

  4. Also...

    Quote: "It is not immediately clear what caused the crash, with weather conditions and pilot error said to be among the possible reasons."

    I think I'd be investigating the plane being ON FIRE as the most probable cause of the crash, but that's probably just because I'm not an idiot. Heh.

  5. That deadly house fire in Manchaca, TX is only a few miles from me. Less than a mile from that fire two different creeks come together and form a wider pool before it keeps flowing east as one creek.

    With the hydrogen sulfide release from that fracking operation in west Texas I think its pretty clear why there are more JJFH events in Texas, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. All three states are fracked. Fracked hard. Then of course Texas also has the after effects of all the tropical rain Harvey dumped on it this past late summer.

  6. Hydrogen sulfide's also hit some areas in Canada, and Moscow in Russia. I don't think it has to do with fracking, but the fact that oil and gas around the planet is becoming more sour, e.g. is becoming richer with more hydrogen sulfide. That's happening all on its own. And what do all of those areas have in common? They're all rich in below-ground hydrocarbons. I think the rampant fracking is a desperate attempt to get the oil and gas out of the ground BEFORE it's turned into hydrogen sulfide, at least in the US. I don't know what they're doing in Canada and Russia about the problem, if anything.

  7. That's another feedback too - the more sour the oil and gas gets, the more hydrogen sulfide leaks from the ground, which causes fires, which releases carbon, which heats things up, which makes the oil and gas more sour, and so on. And fracking it out of the ground doesn't magically solve the problem either, because then what? We can't just sit on it and store it forever, because it'll explode or burn at some point anyway. So we burn it for energy, which produces more carbon, which heats things up, which accelerates the 'cycle of doom' too.

    There are no good options, just bad options and even worse options. Fracking is one of the bad options. Not fracking is an even worse option. Burning the oil and gas for energy is one of the bad options. Not burning it for energy still ends up with it burning, either where we store it or in the ground itself, but we get nothing for it, so that's one of the even worse options.

    All options lead to extinction. Some just take a little longer to get there.

  8. Well the Brits have noticed the increase in people burning over the last handful of years and are endeavoring to find out why it appears. Here's a little article that Hambone forwarded to me.... https://www.yahoo.com/news/hundreds-fire-deaths-may-linked-151134952.html

    I think I can probably write your comment on this article myself Jonny. Shall I? Lol...

    Re-reading it I paid more attention to how this skin cream can soak into clothing. Sounds kinda familiar don't it?

    (It still doesn't explain why the gentleman in London walking down a street spontaneously combusted this past early autumn in the middle of the day. He was nowhere near a flame or heat source to ignite skin cream. A few months later they were still baffled as to why he burned up to a crispy critter.)

  9. Yeah, one thing doesn't preclude the other, so I wouldn't doubt that people who coat themselves in flammable cream are at higher risk of burning to death. But people who get coated in methane or hydrogen sulfide are at risk too - actually, even more at risk, since they won't have any idea that they've become highly flammable. And the cream might help gases adsorb into the cream too, making the person super flammable.
