Event Update For 2016-06-03

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.

    California wildfire threatens homes, mandatory evacuations ordered

    Mandatory evacuations have been ordered in Southern California, as three brush fires quickly spread on Saturday, one of which is moving dangerously close to homes in the Calabasas area, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

    Witnesses reported that one fire began near 23062 Mulholland Highway at around 4:30 pm local time. It was originally said to affect two acres, but is now moving towards residential areas.

    Local Agoura High School on West Driver Avenue is currently being evacuated.

    Meanwhile on Saturday, another blaze overtook the city of Temecula and scorched 35 acres, and much smaller fire was recorded in the Santa Clarita area affecting one-eighth of an acre.

    Drastic weather changes such as sudden night-like darkness and whirlwinds were seen taking place when a hailstorm hit the Bukit Jalil area here Friday evening, according to witnesses.

    The two-hour hailstorm beginning 5pm, had changed the landscape at several areas in Bukit Jalil, with most trees of various sizes toppled, and some broken and hurled up to a 100m.

    [speaking of severe weather, we're due for some this afternoon - high winds, heavy rain, possible hail and flooding]

    The greening of the Arctic

    I wonder what is causing that. Couldn’t be abrupt climate change, could it? Lol

    Greening Arctic: Impact of climate change in high latitudes

    The northern reaches of North America are getting greener, according to a study that provides the most detailed look yet at plant life across Alaska and Canada. In a changing climate, almost a third of the land cover -- much of it Arctic tundra -- is looking more like landscapes found in warmer ecosystems.

  3. Employment Lies

    Paul Craig Roberts served as Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury, Associate Editor for the Wall Street Journal, and Senior Research Fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution. A former economics professor, Dr. Roberts is listed by Who’s Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world. His website is

    June 3, 2016. Today the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the US economy only created 38,000 new jobs in May and revised down by 59,000 jobs the previously reported gains in March and April.

    Yet the BLS reported that the unemployment rate fell from 5.0 to 4.7 percent, a figure generally regarded as full employment.

    The May jobs increase only covers a small fraction of the monthly growth in the labor force and, therefore, cannot account for the drop in unemployment.

    Moreover, the BLS reported that the labor force participation rate fell by 0.2 percentage points, bringing the decline to 0.4 percentage points over the past two months. Normally, a strong labor market, such as one represented by a 4.7% unemployment rate, causes an increase in the labor force participation rate.

    The question becomes: How real is the 4.7% rate of unemployment?

    The answer is: Not at all.

    The unemployment rate dropped because people unable to find jobs ceased looking and are no longer counted as being in the labor force. If you are unemployed but not considered part of the labor force, you are not included when unemployment is measured. The BLS says that in May there were 1.7 million Americans who “wanted and were available for work,” but “were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey.” [more]
