Event Update For 2017-02-01

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.

2017-02-01 - Hydrogen sulfide hitting coastal Laguna Beach (California):

Quote: "The owner of a manufactured-home park in Laguna Beach said Tuesday there is a 'high probability' that the odors that some residents have complained about are coming from outside the park and not from the sewer system. Residents of Laguna Terrace Park, on South Coast Highway, gathered at their clubhouse to hear Stephen Braun, Hometown America Corp.'s chief operating officer, give an update on the company's investigation into the source of what has been identified as hydrogen sulfide, a colorless gas that collects in low-lying, poorly ventilated areas and smells like rotten eggs at certain concentrations. Residents have reported odors emanating from sinks, toilets and air conditioning vents as well as outside of their units, and they have attributed various ailments such as headaches and difficulty breathing to the gas."

Quote: "For example, the average indoor reading taken from the seven homes from Oct. 1 through Nov. 28 was 0.694 parts per million, while the outdoor average reading near one of the houses was 0.686 parts per million from Oct. 1 through 11, according to results. The inference, said Braun, is that the odor is not coming up through the indoor sewer pipes, that there is something in the unrestricted outdoor air that is just as powerful."

Note: So it was just as strong outdoors as indoors, so yeah, not likely coming in from the sewers, but just blowing around in the atmosphere. It's probably blowing in off the ocean, Earth's traditional source of hydrogen sulfide. Off the West Coast is the huge and growing Great Pacific Garbage Patch. As the oceans become more 'landfill-like', they emit more 'landfill gases', like hydrogen sulfide and methane. This problem will continue to get worse until there are no more human beings left alive on the surface of the planet. And then it'll get REALLY bad, but that'll be a problem for the bugs and weeds and bacteria and jellyfish...

2017-02-01 - Hydrogen sulfide found in well water in San Antonio (Texas):

Quote: "Construction begins Thursday for two cooling towers for two Catahoula wells. The $1.2 million towers will help fix a harmless smell caused by hydrogen sulfide emitted by the well water, according to Riley."

Note: Harmless?! Hydrogen sulfide is as deadly as hydrogen cyanide, which is what they use to EXECUTE PEOPLE in gas chambers. The British weaponized it in WWI to kill German soldiers in trenches. They chose it because A) it's easy to produce, B) it's a heavier-than-air gas which would flow across fields and down into the trenches, and C) it's extremely deadly. Harmless my ass! Lets see these officials drink some water that's just 0.1% hydrogen sulfide and see how harmless they think it is then...

Quote: "One sports a comb-over hairstyle, is wholly immovable, and is something of a grotesque. The other is Donald Trump. This 700-year-old church carving at has become something of a star since its resemblance to the US President was spotted. And describing it as 'grotesque' is entirely right, because that's exactly what it is, rather than a gargoyle. A grotesque describes this type of carving in general, whereas a gargoyle specifically means something with a water spout designed to take rainwater away from a roof, the Nottingham Post explains."


  1. See that? Ya learn something new often, by reading this blog.
    Today we learned that a pool of (contaminated) water burned at a refinery, that Hull has yet another JJFH incident (and look at all the others in Britain!), that the Willamette River has claimed another victim (as did the Sacramen-ruh-ro),
    THREE garbage trucks have their contents burst into flames, and the difference between a gargoyle and a grotesque. It's EDUCATIONAL to read Jonny's site.

    Freak weather in Spain leaves devastated salad crops and leads to rationing of vegetables in UK supermarkets

    In a normal year, Spain supplies more than 50 per cent of Europe's vegetables during the winter, shipping more than 100,000 tonnes a month of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and between 50,000 and 100,000 tonnes of other vegetables including cauliflower and broccoli.

    But this year heavy rains in mid December destroyed half the lettuce in Murcia and the first snow there since the 1980s made the situation even worse.

    The shortage began with aubergines and courgettes and has now spread to other vegetables, salad and, potentially, citrus fruit.

    Consumers can now expect shortages of iceberg lettuce, baby spinach, mixed leaves, rocket, lollo rossa, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, lemons, and oranges.
