Event Update For 2016-02-16

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.

Quote: "Upon arrival, fire crews found a 'vehicle on fire in an underground garage,' said Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Miguel Roneles. The blaze then spread to a unit above the garage..."

Note: Same thing as all the various underground electrical fires. Hydrogen sulfide, reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, is heavier than air, so one would expect there to be a rise in underground 'electrical fires' as the atmospheric contamination intensifies, and there certainly has been. All vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, whether parked or being driven. Plenty of people have lost their homes and their lives that way, so park a vehicle near where you live at your own risk...

    A mysterious new layer found in Earth's mantle

    An international group of scientists have discovered a previously unknown layer in Earth's mantle, and they estimate that it contains about eight to ten times more oxygen than Earth's atmosphere.

    "This discovery came as a big surprise to us and so far we don't know what is happening to these 'rivers of oxygen' in the depths of our planet," said Elena Bykova, a member of the group of scientists who made the discovery.

    Scientists believe that the free oxygen rivers could either react with surrounding materials and oxidize them, or rise to upper layers inside the mantle. The discovery of this accumulation of free oxygen inside the mantle came when scientists were studying the reactions of various types of iron oxide, one of the main components of deep-seated rocks.

  5. Mystery Illness Closes 57 Schools in Bangladesh

    Late last month dozens of schools in Bangladesh were closed after hundreds of students began succumbing to a mystery illness.

    The students were taken to a local college hospital and examined, but doctors there could find no common cause or reason for the symptoms. In all the cases the mystery illness was minor and soon faded away.

    In all, 57 schools in the region were closed for two days while investigators searched for a cause but none was found. The Faridpur school mystery has all the textbook signs of a mass hysteria outbreak. [more]
