Event Update For 2018-04-01

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.

2018-04-01 - Rotten egg odor blows over coastal Newcastle (Australia):

Quote: "It appears natural causes are to blame for a strange smell that's been wafting over Newcastle in recent days. Some say the big stink smells like sewerage, others believe the odour has a sulphuric smell. Fire and Rescue NSW says it's received multiple calls from people concerned about a strong smell of gas, however no leaks have been detected. The Environmental Protection Authority has investigated, finding it's likely to be a naturally occurring gas associated with stagnant water from the recent heavy rain."

Note: Notice how they studiously avoid mentioning WHAT gas people are smelling. That's probably because it's hydrogen sulfide and they don't want the people living there to know they're being lightly poisoned...

    Antarctica's grounding lines are retreating across the seafloor

    The grounding lines of Antarctica are on the retreat on the ocean floor. According to a new study by scientists at the University of Leeds, warm ocean water is shrinking Antarctica's underwater footprint.

    According to the new data, published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience, the Southern Ocean melted 565 square miles of underwater ice between 2010 and 2016.

    Antarctica's glaciers have been retreating at an average rate of 82 feet per year. But the rate retreat of the grounding lines of eight of the ice sheet's 65 largest glaciers is five times greater, roughly 410 feet per year. [more]

    Water smells like diesel fuel for years in very poor Martin county in Kentucky

    For the past 20 years, Hope Workman has hustled up a dirt path on the side of a mountain in Lovely, Kentucky, just to get drinking water. She doesn’t trust what comes out of her tap. If she’s by herself, she’ll take her ATV. If one of her daughters is coming along, they take their four-wheel-drive truck. It takes her about seven minutes to grind up the hill before she reaches her destination: a small plastic well tapped into the side of the mountain with a 3½-foot PVC pipe. This is what we go through to get water, unfortunately! [more]

    Tropical Cyclone "Iris" intensifying, dropping heavy rain on Queensland

    Tropical Cyclone "Iris" re-intensified into a tropical cyclone on Sunday, April 1, 2018 while moving through the Coral Sea toward Queensland, Australia. Iris is now moving parallel to the coast of Queensland, dropping heavy rain on a region that already saw huge amounts of rain over the past weeks. While the system is not expected to make landfall, it will continue intensifying over the next 2 days, dropping heavy rainfall and causing local flooding and river rises from Wednesday. This could result in disruption to transport and isolation of communities, particularly if the system lingers close to the coast for an extended period. This cyclone first formed March 24 as the fourth named storm of the 2017/18 South Pacific ocean cyclone season. [more]

    Strong Approval For The Wrecking-Ball-In-Chief

    The largest internet stocks are well above their nearest support lines, while the average stock is already imploding. Therefore there is nothing to stop free-fall to the 200 day and below

    The largest cap stocks are in the most trouble right now. The top three stocks in the S&P 500 are larger than the entire Russell 2000 small cap index. Therefore large caps breaking their 200 day moving average is significant

    Dow Transports traded below their Feb. low today triggering potential Dow Theory violation, however, they pulled back above the prior low into the close. But the damage was done

    The S&P/Treasury ratio definitively broke support today. Forcing accelerated rotation out of stocks into bonds

    Fashionable Ignorance aka. "BTFD"

    We're running a contest to see who can be the most ignorant and arrogant. Winner gets to be president. The runners-up lose everything

    And lest we forget that the biggest stock inflow in history occurred in March during the week that Trump floated the full megatard idea of a second tax cut. After all, nothing gets RepubliCons lubed up more than tax cuts paid for with borrowed money. How else to blame government profligacy for bankrupting the country? It's a two-for-one con job.

  5. By the way (not that anyone cares), I don't think there's any "Devine Judgement" that's going to be rendered at our individual demise, as your quote at the top suggests. I believe the only judgement is by other flawed humans at the moment of their awareness of whatever it is that's demanding or initiating their judgmental response. It's a learned knee-jerk reaction our reptilian minds create, and like everything else, is about to become meaningless anyway.

    If all this sounds frightening, it certainly is: The idea that your house, with no warning, might explode seems incomprehensible. [more]

    HUNTINGDON, Pa. (AP) — Five cars in a Norfolk Southern freight train derailed Tuesday alongside a creek in central Pennsylvania, spilling debris into a waterway and disrupting travel on Amtrak.

    Officials said no one was injured and the spill, which occurred around 8:15 a.m. in the borough of Huntingdon, did not involve any hazardous material.

    The derailed cars were carrying plastic, pulp board, dried potatoes and peas, a Norfolk Southern spokesman said. [more]

    Letter: The EPA is spreading lies

    [no, you don't get it - it's ALL lies - all of it, from the economy to foreign policy to health care - everything is based on lies the government tells us]

    We must hold our governmental officials, industries, and ourselves responsible to acknowledging the truth about human-caused climate change and taking individual and legislative steps to address this crisis. [more; lotsa luck, fella]

    Sports sponsorships of unhealthy foods drive the childhood obesity epidemic

    There’s a reason sports heroes like Michael Jordan have been appearing on cereal boxes for decades. Food and beverage companies have learned that spending billions of dollars on marketing targeted at kids as young as 2 can sway the food choices they make for a lifetime. Yet we have become numb to this advertising because it’s all around us — and it’s a major and often ignored driver of the obesity epidemic. [more]

    Geoglyphs found in Amazon prove there were huge settlements deep in the rainforest before Christopher Colombus

    The discovery of dozens of geoglyphs show the Amazon rainforest was highly populated long before Columbus arrived. Researchers found the geoglyphs were part of hundreds of villages that may have had a collective population of more than 1 million. The earthen structures were likely constructed during times of drought. [more]

    The Slope Of Fake Hope

    What this era proves more than anything, is that there is no lie too big, the sheeple won't believe it, if it preserves their delusion. And no shortage of con artists willing to serve it...

    Today's bounce sponsored by the Spotify IPO and Wall Street's desperation to dump more junk before the "window" of opportunity closes, due to lack of available muppets...

    There's so much horse shit around here there has to be a pony somewhere. [more]

  7. Talk about conveeeeeeenient....there was a shooting at the YouTube HQ campus in CA this afternoon.

    ...and this time the shooter was a chick! I'm sure mass shooting and gun expert little Davey Hogg is being fitted for his mike and earpiece at CNN as I type.....

  8. "We shall be judged by what we do, not by how we felt while we were doing it." -- Kenneth Tynan

    I don't think Kenneth Tynan was talking about divine judgment with that quote. He was a theater critic (and writer), and what he was saying was that plays or writings should be judged by whether they're good or bad, and that he wasn't going to buy any excuses for lack of quality in the work of others nor did he expect people to buy any excuses about his own work. I meant much the same thing in borrowing his quote - people don't like excuses and they judge things accordingly.

  9. Even more conveeeeeenient....the YouTube shooter was apparently Persian, which of course means Iranian. She promoted a Persian website. She has a thick accent so she migrated here later in her life.

  10. Yeah, I kinda thought it was human-based. You know how I just can't seem to help myself spouting off - again, "nobiddy cays" - and it dun madda anyway.

    Mike, yeah I was reading some of this stuff. After listening to "Nobody Died At Sandy Hook" I wait on all of these shootings to see what develops and how things proceed. Yeah that FBI-linked kid is being used to further the "grab the guns" agenda.

    What they don't get is that there's no such thing as "gun control." They either want everyone to have access to the means to protect oneself or they want them in the hands of the government, which has been uncovered as TOTALLY CORRUPT. The agenda is government driven, so RESIST! i'm not going to any FEMA camp if i'm armed (and so are all my neighbors in the entire community).
