Event Update For 2017-01-04

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.

2017-01-04 - Hydrogen sulfide hits parts of Moscow (Russia), people sickened:

Quote: "Moscow residents continue to complain of a strong smell of hydrogen sulfide in the air on the street and in the apartment, covered with messages of emergency services. In the MOE does not yet give any comments, and from Muscovites in social networks have already received a few reports that people are starting to become bad."

Quote: "We will remind, the first messages to the community about a strong smell of hydrogen sulfide in the air appeared in the second half of the day Wednesday, January 4th. First, the increased content of substance in the air was felt only on the street, and later, the tenants began to complain, and in a similar situation in their apartments."

Note: This is now at least the third time that hydrogen sulfide has hit Moscow. A huge cloud of hydrogen sulfide hit Moscow in November 2014, mentioned in the 2014-11-10 update. Residents were told to shelter-in-place during that event and soldiers in gas masks were on the streets. Then high levels of hydrogen sulfide hit Moscow again in July 2016, mentioned in the 2016-07-04 update...

2017-01-04 - Person found burned to death in burned-out car at 8:40 AM on Wakefield Forest Road in Wakefield (Australia), near the coast:

Quote: "Emergency services called out to a routine car fire west of Newcastle made a grisly discovery this morning when they found a body inside the burnt-out vehicle. Police arrived at Wakefield Forest Rd, Wakefield, about 8.40am after reports of a car alight. Officers were inspecting the burnt out vehicle when they made the grim discovery inside."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2017-01-04 - Palm trees regularly going up in flames along US 101 near coastal San Jose (California):

Quote: "Spokesmen from both agencies stressed that they don’t know if fires are being intentionally set and that they have not opened an official investigation, but that they are 'keeping an eye on' the area."

Note: Could be the palm trees are spontaneously igniting. Had lots of towns along the coast in California getting hit by rotten egg odors and hydrogen sulfide in the last few months, and there's surely some odorless methane blowing ashore too, and palm trees have rubbery adsorbent 'skin', so once they adsorb enough flammable gas(es) on their skin, they may burst into flame. Not much different from the incidents involving cardboard/clothing/paper that have burst into flame...

When crews arrived, the fire was threatening a second structure behind the mobile home. Crews worked quickly to put out the flames and that second structure received no fire damage.

So, the situation is out of our control, if it was ever in our control in the first place. Even if every factory shut down and every vehicle and human being disappeared, the Earth will keep on spewing more and more methane and hydrogen sulfide and CO2 into the atmosphere, just as has happened before. We are now irrelevant...

  1. Great and timely reports Jonny. There are so many dead trees (palms among them) in San Jose that it's surprising more varieties aren't included.

    Lots of critical electrical stuff burning up, homes going dark (so no heat either). Freezing in the dark isn't fun and drives ya nuts after a week, speaking from first-hand experience.

    As expected, tractor trailers jump into the lead in burned out stuff (since there are far too many cars to keep track of) in 2017.

    Trains are burning more regularly too (not to mention their difficulties staying on the tracks).

    Zombies and people dropping dead suddenly are also steadily occurring.

  2. I hope you received my first comment, sent earlier.

    I'm sitting here looking out at the Pacific reading The Carmel Pinecone where, on the first page, there's a story about a 33 y.o. SJ man who was an experienced diner losing consciousness and drowning while swimming out to a favorite point.


  3. Winter storm wasn't too bad here - got an inch of snow or less, and that's the first real snow here since winter began. I was expecting more snow, made a crockpot full of beef stew, was ready to ride out a big storm inch. Still good stew though!

  4. 'Experienced diner' - is that a nice way of saying he was fat? Heh, I know what you meant!

    This is totally nuts. I saw this same "brown streak" in the sky below us on the flight from Denver. I couldn't figure out what it was. At first I thought it was a feature of the ground showing through the cloud cover, because it suddenly disappeared. It preceded us for miles and looked like a straight stream of dark smoke. Later I thought it was an optical illusion. This article appears today, after 2 years, and, like your H2S revelation when I passed out on the boardwalk, brought the experience back with another way to look at it. Geez.


  6. I think they're spraying stuff into the atmosphere to react away hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, trying to help us hold onto the status quo, such as it is, for as long as possible.

  7. I didn't see any kind of aircraft anywhere near it, but you could be right.
