Event Update For 2016-04-17

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.

    Four-month-old baby dies during Cathay Pacific flight from London to Hong Kong

    The infant is believed to have been suffering from a gastrointestinal disease when the family boarded the plane at Heathrow on Sunday.

    Another passenger – a nurse – started giving first aid to the baby.

    The pilot made an emergency landing at Almaty Airport in Kazakhstan and paramedics rushed to the scene.

    But the baby could not be saved and she was pronounced dead soon after the emergency landing.
