Event Update For 2017-07-09

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.

    Final Thoughts
    Ultimately, this insanity highlights the obvious problem with nuclear power that no one who profits from this sector of the energy industry will talk about: nuclear power is impossible for us to contain. And in a nation with unlimited funds for war materials and prison complexes, it’s an indictment of our values that we don’t have the resources or the will to protect our land and our people from disasters like this.

    It's also noteworthy to mention that the U.S. has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

    Given the mixture of a treasure chest of government money, and private connections, the likelihood exists that six decades later there is a clandestine group that possesses:
    Technology that is vastly superior to that of the "mainstream" world.
    The ability to explore areas of our world and surroundings presently unavailable to the rest of us.
    Scientific and cosmological understandings that give them greater insights into the nature of our world.
    Inouye was the highest ranking Asian-American politician in U.S. history, serving the democratic party from 1963 until his death in 2012.
    There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.

  4. HIGH Expectations

    "Oil prices could soon fall below $40 a barrel if investors don't get a clear catalyst that prompts them to start buying the commodity, Goldman Sachs said on Tuesday...The investment bank believes oil prices will not rally until traders see at least one of two things: further intervention from OPEC or a consistent drop in both U.S. crude oil stockpiles and the number of rigs operating in American fields."

    It's the biggest sunspot of 2017 so far and AR2665 is now facing Earth and it's massive, according to it is stretching more than 120,000 km from end to end.

    Moreover, it has an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class explosions. Any eruptions today would be squarely Earth-directed.

    For the past 24 hours AR2665 has been strangely quiet--a sign of impotence?
