Event Update For 2017-05-25

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.

    Is school literally driving kids crazy?

    Boston College psychology professor, Peter Gray, looked more closely at this data and found that children's mental health is directly related to school attendance.

    Dr. Gray concludes: "The available evidence suggests quite strongly that school is bad for children's mental health. Of course, it's bad for their physical health, too; nature did not design children to be cooped up all day at a micromanaged, sedentary job."

    School-related anxiety and depression are real, serious issues that can lead to catastrophe, as evidenced by the rising suicide rate among children. In fact, according to the CDC, the suicide rate among 10 to 14 year olds has doubled since 2007. And for girls in that age group, the suicide rate has tripled over the past 15 years. [more]

    Manchester Bomber Was a British Intelligence Mi6 Asset

    It comes as no surprise to us, but new evidence appears to show that Salman Abedi, the Manchester Arena bomber, was a Mi5/Mi6 asset.

    It is already admitted by the UK government that Salman Abedi was known to them and now this new evidence seems to confirm that Salman Abedi and his family was used by the British Intelligence agencies as proxy assets. This is obviously the reason why no action was taken when he was reported to Mi5. They did not want to deactivate an asset.

    He regularly travelled to Syria and Libya to fight with ISIS linked groups with the permission of British intelligence, and allowed to return to Britain.

    Global Moron Bubble aka. "Globalization"

    What it all comes down to is that no one wanted to leave the Ponzi party early, because then they might look stupid to every other moron. When it comes to being a dunce, there's strength in numbers

    The Moron Bubble: 2008 x Y2K

    An IQ test for who could be conned three times in a row by the exact same psychopaths, while worshipping the false idol of competitive consumption...

    The DotCom bubble was based upon the monetization of the internet. The Housing Bubble was as an experiment in using homes as ATM machines. This is the moron bubble, based upon the ubiquitous belief that printing money is the secret to effortless wealth...

    Post-2008, EconoDunces knew they couldn't reflate the real economy since it was being arbitraged away for corporate profit, so instead of inflating the economy, they inflated asset valuations instead. Therefore even as the underlying economy was losing value, the prices paid for it would be gaining value via the fake wealth effect. This may sound like a good idea in theory, but it comes with some problematic after-effects. For those who already owned financial assets this was great, since it allowed them to cash out at higher valuations, assuming they were smart enough to realize this was their last chance to do so. Unfortunately for anyone who spent their hard earned money buying stocks in the meantime, they were paying prices that bear no relation to reality. The bagholder effect. [more]

    The Pentagon's latest military technology could make warfare feel more like a first person shooter video game.

    The technology adds artificial elements such as icons and graphics on top of what a soldier would normally see and provides them with real-time information such as maps, navigation and the locations of enemies and friendly units, all through the Heads Up Navigation, Tracking and Reporting (HUNTR) system.

    It seem that an increase in UV-B is now affecting bees, ants and flies globally altering their daylight activities such as feeding and reproduction. The UV spectrum is becoming so intense that insects that are active during the day are seeking shelter for the intense shift in their visual spectrum. Since they don't see in Infrared they cannot forage at night and are starving because they cannot access a food source. This is not a good sign as we need these insects to pollinate our crops. Without these pollinators crop yield will decrease along with losses due to out so season weather. This is unexpected side effect of the new mini ice age. reduction in pollinators.

    "While he was confronting the bear[,] he fell down," Sprado said. "The bear made contact with him and swiped at him with his paws, [but] he was able to get up and beat the bear off with sticks and rocks," he said adding that the bear left the man alone after that.

  6. Yeah, that UV is not unexpected. That's Step 9 of this extinction event - 'UV kills off remaining life'. That's why they're spraying stuff in the sky. If they didn't, we'd already all be starving to death from worldwide crop failure caused by UV-burning. Our straits are so dire that 'the authorities' can't bring themselves to tell us how dire our straits are. We're well past midnight on the Doomsday Clock. We're just playing 'death lottery' now as we wind things down on this planet as a species.

    The Arctic Meltdown & Extreme Weather - Jennifer Francis

    Published on May 24, 2017 [26 min. video]

    While heat waves and more intense storms have been directly linked to a warming Earth, new research is exploring possible impacts of an Arctic that is warming at twice the pace of the rise in global temperatures. Jennifer Francis, Rutgers University, discusses new research and efforts to understand this controversial aspect of climate change in Metcalf's Climate Change and the News webinar that aired May 17, 2017

    Waves Rippled Through Greenland’s Ice. That’s Ominous

    On its surface, the Greenland ice sheet is a vast expanse of seemingly immovable ice. But beneath the monotonous stretch of white, scientists have discovered evidence of waves rippling through one of its outlet glaciers and roiling its innards.

    The waves, observed during the two most intense melt seasons on record, sent an unprecedented cascade of ice and water rushing into the sea and warping the very bedrock upon which the ice sits. As temperatures continue to rise, scientists fear that massive waves of ice could expedite Greenland’s melt even further, pushing sea levels higher.
