Event Update For 2016-08-13

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.

2016-08-13 - Unknown odor sickens person in Silver Spring (Maryland):

Quote: "Fire Officials are investigating a hazmat situation that occurred in close proximity to where a deadly apartment exploded in Silver Spring late Wednesday evening, according to Pete Piringer with Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service."

Quote: "Piringer says crews are on the scene in the 2200 block Colston Drive checking out an unusual odor. One person is reportedly sick with injuries that are not life-threatening. Officials believe there could possibly be carbon monoxide coming from a gas stove."

Note: Maybe there was carbon monoxide coming from a stove but that obviously wasn't the unusual odor, seeing as carbon monoxide is odorless, which is why they call it 'the silent killer'. Also, it wasn't just the one apartment building that exploded; another apartment building caught fire near the one that exploded too, mentioned in the 2016-08-11 update. So in a short period of time, an apartment building was destroyed by a massive explosion and fire, another apartment building burned and a HazMat incident involving an unknown odor sickened a person, all in the same general location...

  2. Was just reading about that fire - looks pretty bad! Auto shop, looks like, from the story:

  3. Yeah, and one of the many "storage garages" supposedly held fireworks (hence some of the explosions).

    2 killed by lightning bolt in West Bengal, India

    Shallow magnitude 5.2 earthquake in southern Peru kills at least four


  4. It's academic now but official acknowledgement has finally been made of meltdowns at Diaini as well as Diachi in Fukushima - there would be others almost certainly as well so it's clear that an unimaginable amount of heat is being generated just by the radiation from Japan, apart from any other problems for the biosphere - and the amount is only growing because the radiation is intensifying not diminishing. More rising of sea temperature,release of methane, rain bombs, heatwaves, hurricanes etc, etc. Very warm winter here in Australia. Barrier Reef die-off unimaginably sad.

  6. Tom N. - I agree, Fukushima was much worse than had been revealed. It's all covered up and I think the powers that be know the "end game" is immanent (maybe that's why they're threatening WWIII with Russia).
