Event Update For 2016-04-05

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. (as they say in Philly) Yo.

    Another compendium of destruction and mayhem.

    It's clear that "the authorities" have no control whatsoever on these type of events, because they're either willfully ignorant, not paying attention, or simply "aren't sayin'." Whatever the reason(s), the public has no idea what's happening and still consider these as "rare" events, though they happen with increasing frequency and size. People will be "surprised" when it happens in their town or to them directly, exclaiming: "how could this happen?"

    I see an recent event happened near you too Jonny! Welcome to the club (they've been going on all around me, as you know)!

    Block of ice weighing 30kg falls from the sky in India

    Reeling under an early heat wave, people in Harda district of Madhya Pradesh received a cool surprise — an ice chunk weighing about 30kg falling from the sky.

    The chunk, believed to be a megacryometeor (ice-stone) or blue ice, came crashing down in a field on Monday, creating a three-foot-deep crater upon impact. This comes nearly three months after a similar incident in Sagar district in which a 60-year-old woman was injured.

    'Suspicious' wildfire breaks out at Havasu National Wildlife Refuge

    Authorities said Wednesday's fire started at about 4:30 a.m. local time in the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, which spans both California and Arizona, and jumped the Colorado River, burning through river bottom vegetation and Salt Cedar and Mesquite trees.

    Firefighters from both states are battling the blaze and additional crews have been requested, Mohave Valley (Ariz.) Fire District Chief Ted Martin said in a statement.

    Martin called the fire "suspicious in nature," but said it was too early to determine the cause. Officials reported there was no lightning in the area and that skies were clear at the time the fire broke out.
