Event Update For 2018-03-18

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.

    Dangerous atmospheric river: Largest West Coast storm this year to bring heavy rain, montain snow and fear of flooding and debris flows in California

    In 1861 an atmospheric river that brought storms for 43 days turned California’s Central Valley into an inland sea 300 miles long and 20 miles wide. Thousands of people died, 800,000 cattle drowned and the state went bankrupt. A similar disaster today would be much more devastating, because the region is much more populated and it is the single largest food producer in the U.S. Geologic core samples show that extreme floods like the one in 1861 have happened in California about every 200 years, since the year 200 A.D. So the next disaster could be coming around the bend. Like this week? There is indeed a strong area of low pressure that will move into the West Coast this week. And this system will tap into an atmospheric river, enhancing precipitation in central and southern California. [more]

    Has our government spent over $21 trillion (with a T) of our money without telling us?

    The report indicates that for fiscal year 2015 the Army failed to provide adequate support for $6.5 trillion in journal voucher adjustments.

    An appendix to the July 2016 report shows $2 trillion in changes to the Army General Fund balance sheet due to unsupported adjustments.

    The July 2016 report is not the only such report of unsubstantiated adjustments. Mark Skidmore and Catherine Austin Fitts, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, conducted a search of government websites and found similar reports dating back to 1998. While the documents are incomplete, original government sources indicate $21 trillion in unsupported adjustments have been reported for the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the years 1998-2015.

    Geyser erupts under road sending water and debris into the sky on San Diego interstate

    [It's a MIRACLE, a sign from GOD! WE'RE SAVED! Ok, maybe not.]

    A towering geyser sent water and debris into the sky near Torrey Pines Tuesday, prompting traffic issues near busy construction.

    The geyser erupted around 11 a.m. on Genesee Avenue just west of Interstate 5. All lanes of traffic on Genesee Ave. were shut down in both directions.

    A city official told 10News a contractor hit a 6-inch blowoff value connected to a 30-inch water main. Crews have shut down the water main and neighbors may experience low water pressure until repairs are complete. [more]

    Russia News: Extreme water receding in Kholmsk and eruption of Ebeko volcano (videos)

    Some weird things happened on March 20, 2018 in Russia. Today, ocean waters almost disappeared from Kholmsk, panicking residents living on the southwest coast of the Sakhalin Island. A day before the Ebeko volcano, situated on the northern end of Paramushir Island in the Kuril Islands, erupted, sending a plume of ash and gas two kilometers above sea level. [more]

  8. I didn't read about the Tathra fires in any great detail but comments made by some residents there struck me as similar to those made by some people about some of the fires in recent months, in the California hills somewhere, as in nature strips left untouched in streets otherwise totally obliterated and trees adjacent to gutted houses unscathed etc. Also no warning to evacuate, came out of nowhere, mobile phone tower out of order, all that kind of thing. People were speculating about energy weapons and what have you. Bit of mayhem producing, distraction inducing practice/horse-play kind of thing....?
    So much weird stuff been happening for such a long time now I just don't follow up too much on many things. But anyway it just struck me.
    Day time Max 40C down to 20C in one day here. Not that unusual anymore I know but it's still weird......
