Event Update For 2017-02-08

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.

2017-02-08 - Another massive mysterious explosion rattles people at 11 PM in Salford (Britain):

2017-02-08 - Ships carrying vehicles increasingly burning:

Quote: "The International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) has today (Wednesday) published a position paper voicing its concerns with fires on ro-ro passenger vehicles. Marine underwriters have witnessed an increase in the frequency of fires in the car/ro-ro passenger vessel segment and IUMI have put forward recommendations to mitigate the risks."

Quote: "While the paper mainly focuses on ro-ro passenger vessels, similar concerns with fires exist also for car carriers. It is also worth noting that damage to the cargo on these vessels can be significant, although the fire itself may be contained."

Note: If they'd listened to me five years ago, they maybe could have saved themselves umpteen million dollars by being pro-active instead of reactive. I also said recycling facilities would be going up in flames, and two years later almost all major international insurers had bowed out of the business because of heavy losses due to the increasing numbers of recycling center fires, mentioned in the 2014-04-04 update. Not that I'm one to shed too many tears over insurance companies...

2017-02-08 - Locust swarms devouring crops in Bolivia, state of emergency declared:

Quote: "Bolivian President Evo Morales is declaring a state of emergency to fight a plague of locusts that is decimating crops in the country's agricultural heartland. Morales announced the decision Wednesday as part of a contingency plan. It includes $700,000 in additional funds for fumigation. Officials say the swarm of locusts first appeared two weeks ago about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of the eastern city of Santa Cruz. It has spread fast and is now about 18 miles (30 kilometers) from Bolivia's largest city. Bolivia's Eastern Agriculture Chamber estimates more than 2,700 acres (1,100 hectares) of corn, sorghum and beans have already been destroyed by the locusts. Authorities fear the locusts will reach the breadbasket region that supplies more than 80 percent of Bolivia's food unless there is extensive fumigation."

  4. How would we even really know if we have a recession? A recession is people buying less stuff. But what if there are simply fewer people left alive, which results in people buying less stuff too? Well, surely we'd know, right? Because 'the authorities' provide the numbers. But when it's 'the authorities' hiding the whole problem, those numbers might not necessarily have a 1:1 correspondence with reality.

    Heavy snowfall cuts power, disrupts transport along Sea of Japan coast

    The White House employee who ensures Trump doesn’t get hacked has been fired

    A troubling report last month revealed that President Donald Trump still uses “his old, unsecured Android phone” despite protests from security experts and his closest advisers. He was given a more secure device once he took office, but for whatever reason, he refuses to make the switch and continues to tweet from his old phone. As baffling as this is, it’s even more frightening in light of the news that Cory Louie, chief information security officer for the White House’s Executive Office, has left his post.

    Louie was “escorted out from his office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across the street from the West Wing” last Thursday, but it’s still unclear whether he was fired or asked to resign by the new administration. [more]
