Event Update For 2017-02-12

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.

2017-02-12 - 'Nasty odours' sickens 68 people at airport in Hamburg (Germany):

Quote: "Nearly 70 people have been taken ill at Hamburg Airport after 'nasty odours' were pumped through the terminal's air-conditioning system."

Quote: "All flights were stopped after scores of people reported 'respiratory irritation' at the airport. People were treated for coughing, breathing problems and burning eyes by paramedics at the scene. Medics raced to the terminals 1 and 2 to treat holidaymakers who had reported feeling unwell."

Note: They're trying hard to blame this on a small canister of pepper spray that a worker threw in the trash. There's all kindsa stuff wrong with that excuse. First, you have to assume their employees are incompetent, to dispose of such a canister unsafely. Then you have to assume more employees were incompetent and put a trash can near an air return vent. Then you have to assume that the canister vented spontaneously for some reason but nobody heard the sound or noticed haze coming out of the trash can. Then you have to assume that people would call pepper spray a 'nasty odour' - it's not, it smells like pepper, it's just very irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes. Then you have to assume that a personal-sized canister that mysteriously went off by itself for some reason could possibly HOLD enough pepper spray to disperse enough to sicken 68 people. And then you have to assume that even though it's not NORMALLY invisible, the pepper spray, in this instance, somehow became invisible because nobody reported any haze. Any ONE of those things...sure, maybe. But all of them? Nah, far too implausible. If it smells like a bullshit story and it looks like a bullshit story, most likely it's a bullshit story.

Now, instead of assuming ALL of those impossible or improbable things, you could alternatively just assume it was hydrogen sulfide - it would be more apt to be called a 'nasty odour', it would come in through the outside air intakes, it could easily be plentiful enough to sicken 68 people with exactly those symptoms, it would be invisible and create no haze, and the authorities would attempt to disguise a major hydrogen sulfide poisoning incident with some inane excuse like, say, pepper spray.

Which of the two above scenarios is more likely, the one they WANT you to believe, filled with improbabilities and impossibilities, or the one they don't even want you to consider because it's far more plausible? When they try to steer your thinking, it's best to be wary. And obviously they have to come up with SOME excuse that people will accept, at least gullible trusting people. In this case the excuse was pepper spray. They've used this excuse many times. As long as people will buy it, they'll keep on using it. But soon enough, it won't just be enough hydrogen sulfide to sicken a few dozen people - there will be piles of corpses. At that point they'll have to switch to an entirely different excuse which will probably be...'terrorists done it!'

2017-02-12 - Person burns to death before 7 AM beneath overpass in Santa Ana (California):

2017-02-12 - Car bursts into flame at 12:30 AM, car crashes, in coastal Paralimni on the island of Cyprus (Greece), 1 killed:

Quote: "Further investigations revealed later on Sunday that according to a witness, the car burst into flames long before it hit the wall. A driver who was travelling behind said the victim only lost control of the car after the fire broke out."

2017-02-12 - Passenger bus bursts into flame and kills passenger, near Siliguri (India), 10 people injured too:

Quote: "A passenger died in a Purulia bound AC bus after it caught fire at the Bidhan Nagar area near Siliguri on Sunday afternoon. The fire spread rapidly and engulfed the bus in no time creating panic. In their scramble to get off the burning vehicle, 10 people got injured and had to be taken to the Bidhan Nagar Primary Health Centre."

Note: This is the 155th bus to burn in 2017...

2017-02-12 - At least two mysterious explosions shake homes and rattle people in Whitley County (Indiana):

Quote: "Homeowners reported the explosive noise literally shook their houses. Possible sonic booms from air craft in the area were discounted as the cause as there were no Air National Guard exercises ongoing at the time. Another cause could be the phenomena named "frost quakes," although those usually happen in much colder weather; however, there is also a moisture component to the freak winter events."

Note: Yeah, well, these mysterious explosions have been happening in the spring, summer and fall too, so there's no reason to think these current ones were caused by something different just because they happened in the winter. Whatever is causing these explosions - likely atmospheric explosions, since 'flashes of 'light' and 'sulfur smells' and smoke have been reported with some of them - is something that is happening year-round. This will be way more obvious once a few towns have been turned into charred craters...

2017-02-12 - Mysterious explosions shake homes in Eastern Pennsylvania:

2017-02-12 - More than 80 brush fires raging in New South Wales (Australia), town heavily damaged or destroyed:

More than 80 fires - including 20 uncontained - were still burning on Monday following record temperatures. The Rural Fire Service (RFS) said it was remarkable no lives were lost amid 'catastrophic' weekend conditions.

Quote: "The team says the whale has injuries consistent with strikes from a large propeller, but cannot confirm that as the cause of death before a full necropsy is performed. The incident marks the third time in two weeks that a whale has been found dead in local waters."

Note: How do they know the whale wasn't unconscious, having a seizure, or already dead BEFORE the propeller hit it? They don't. And hydrogen sulfide isn't just killing human beings, it's killing all oxygen-using life, including whales. This is one of the sly psyops techniques 'the authorities' have been using: insinuating that an event can only happen because of ONE factor, when reality itself consistently shows that's not the case. People are generally content with AN excuse though, so as psyops techniques go, it's been effective. They don't have to fool all of the people all of the time. They just have to fool most of the people most of the time. That's easy...

2017-02-12 - Two men drop dead outdoors in the same area near water park in Shelby Township (Michigan):

  1. Wow, a 100-foot tsunami roaring down through that valley would be crazy! I hope their remedy of dropping bags of rocks into the hole works, but honestly, that sounds like something of a desperation measure to me. But then again, the situation DOES actually look pretty desperate. I was thinking that dam in Iraq would be the first big dam to fail, but, well, I guess we'll see what happens!

  2. The guy in the third (the second one fails to launch) of the four videos embedded in this article says it would be a 10 foot wave, but I don't think he's talking about a complete collapse. This is a DIRE situation - they're about to get 7 straight days of rain from the Pineapple Express. The dam is 900 feet deep and is at 101% of capacity with a deteriorated southern emergency spillway (that hadn't been used since the dam was built in 1968) capable of collapsing the dam. In the third video, yer buddy Dutchsinse expects an earthquake down that way soon, due to a rare surface earthquake in Alaska that occurred last week, next to a (series of) volcano(s) (within 50 miles, but also within 70 miles of a HAARP station!).

    The Oroville Dam Crisis

    Expert: What You Need To Know About The Oroville Dam Crisis

    [this is HUGE]

    Industrialised societies driving climate change 170 times faster than the natural rate – New paper formalises mathematically the change rate of Earth’s life support system

    [For those not experienced with these types of formulae, it's a differential equation describing the rate of change of the Earth system over time. In the left formula, the system is a function of the astronomical, geophysical and internal dynamics of the planet (and our local solar neighbors); in the one on the right, we're looking at the same Earth system as a function of Industrialized Societies (ie. humanity), as all of those factors tend to zero - because we have MUCH more of an effect than those other factors].
    Can the Anthropocene equation be solved?
    “Well, probably not. Human societies are too complex. What we can say is that the rate of change needs to become zero soon. It is difficult to imagine a global civilization functioning on a destabilizing Earth system,” Will Steffen says.

    “We need to take a biosphere positive approach to economic development in the Anthropocene. We need development that stores carbon not emits it, enhances biodiversity not reduces it and purifies waters and soils not pollutes them.” [more]

  3. Global hydropower boom will add to global warming – “Reservoirs are major emitters of methane, a particularly aggressive greenhouse gas”

    Idaho lawmakers strip climate change references from new K-12 science standards

    [It's OFFICIAL, Jonny - they DO NOT want the kids to know what's coming at 'em! Oh, they say that teachers can still teach global warming and climate change, but you know how this goes, teachers don't have time in the face of standardized state testing and all the other demands to do that on a consistent basis.]

    Banned chemicals from the 1970s found in the deepest reaches of the ocean

    A study, from the University of Aberdeen and Newcastle University has uncovered the first evidence that man-made pollutants have now reached the farthest corners of our earth.
    Sampling amphipods from the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana and Kermadec trenches - which are over 10 kilometres deep and 7,000 km apart - the team found extremely high levels of Persistent Organic Pollutants - or POPs - in the organism’s fatty tissue. These include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) which are commonly used as electrical insulators and flame retardants. [more]
