Event Update For 2017-07-11

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.

2017-07-11 - Hydrogen sulfide hitting areas in coastal Royal Park (Australia):

Quote: "A rotten egg smell coming from SA Water’s Wastewater Pump Station on Frederick Rd is causing a stink among nearby residents and businesses. Peter and Sarka Laznicka, who live on adjacent Lochside Dr in West Lakes, said the smell is so intense they wake up in the mornings with headaches from being exposed to it."

Quote: "Dr Laznicka, a retired geology professor, said residents had been overwhelmed by hydrogen sulphide — the gas that smells like rotten eggs — for decades until it subsided for a period, only to recently make a return. 'Several years ago, SA Water started pumping sewage to Bolivar (and) the smell stopped, now it is back,' Dr Laznicka said. 'Sometimes it terribly smells from canals under Wilson St, or a smelly cloud envelopes the neighbourhood. It seems that the hydrogen sulphide release starts in certain times of day, maybe at night, or on weekends. We are powerless to move authorities to do anything.'"
