Event Update For 2018-08-01

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.

  2. Good luck on your trip! And California to Pennsylvania via FLORIDA? That seems a little weird. A layover in Denver or Chicago or Kansas City or Dallas, sure, but Florida? Well, I haven't flown in a while, so what do I know about what's normal anymore. Heh.

    Redding's Fire Tornado Was Not Your Garden Variety Fire Whirl

    Paul Beckwith, Gary Null and Kevin Hester analyse the rapidly unfolding Climate Catastrophe

  4. Robert Scribbler has a video about Florida's algae crisis and he talks quite a bit about H2S. I posted a link to JJFH in the comment section.

  5. Good video - he repeated what I've been saying all along. Obviously he's still missing a ton of pieces of the puzzle though - the watery deaths, the 'electrical fault' fires, the 'medical event' issues with accidents, the people mysteriously burning to death, the rising number of planes coming down smoking/burning, the people inexplicably stripping naked and going nuts (and sometimes dying shortly thereafter), etc. Still, progress is progress!

  6. Good job, Mike. I've been banned from his site for calling him out on his chicken-shit denial (of where this is all leading) coupled with his absurd optimism and belief in a techno-fix to keep our civilization going. If I had a blog and encountered push back like that, I would have banned me too (to be honest). I still read his essays occasionally because he does good research and has a great group of commenters. He just never lets them off the reservation, so to speak.

    That Gary Null show is well worth the listen (posted above).

    The Dangers of celebrity activists: U2's Bono and the CIA

    1. Yeah Robert is overall very smart and knowledgeable, but he is holding on to the "clean energy is going to save us" meme. Most of his videos he does a good job of just laying out the facts. I skip over the ones when he talks about electric cars and so forth.

      And I doubt he'll embrace the JJFH. But maybe some viewers will check it out and become converted. Hallelujah!! Praise the Gas Gawds!!!

  7. Forgot to add this one:

    Virginia Dam Overtops, Homes Evacuated Over Dam Failure Fears

    More than 100 residences were evacuated in Lynchburg, Virginia, over fears that a dam there could fail as water overtopped the dam and barreled across local roads.

    Although the dam has not yet failed, the threat of failure prompted the evacuations. Should the dam completely fail, enough water levels in the affected part of the city could rise to 17 feet in just 7 minutes, local media, citing emergency officials, said.
    Currently, up to a foot and a half of water was currently flowing across Lakeside Drive and into Blackwater Creek after spilling out of the dam, NWS Blacksburg said.
    The dam is above capacity after storms dropped more than 6 inches of rain in just 24 hours upstream from College Lake, senior meteorologist Jon Erdman said. [more]
