Event Update For 2017-08-03

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.

According to Atwood, the Air Quality District has received complaints about the mystery smell in Long Beach and other beach cities."

    Rare 'heat burst' event causes overnight temperature spike in Vacaville, California

    Nightfall didn't bring much relief from the heat for residents in Vacaville thanks to a rare weather phenomenon.

    Vacaville suffered through high temperatures of 108 degrees on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. By 8 p.m., temperatures had dropped down to the low 80s - like what you'd usually expect to happen when the sun goes down.

    However, after bottoming out at 80, temperatures actually started to shoot up as the night progressed.

    By midnight, temperatures had spiked at 95 degrees.

    NWS says the bizarre temperature spike is due to a rare event called a "heat burst." [more; i never heard the term]

  2. Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan Ominously Warns That The Biggest Bond Bubble In History Is About To Burst

    Are we right on the verge of one of the greatest financial collapses in American history?  I have been repeatedly warning that our ridiculously over-inflated stock market bubble could burst at any time, but former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan believes that the bond bubble actually presents an even greater danger.  When you look at the long-term charts, you will see that an epic bond bubble has been growing since the early 1980s, and when it finally collapses the financial carnage is going to be unlike anything we have ever seen before.

    This week, the Dow made a new high unaccompanied by any other major U.S. index. Worldwide, the Bombay Sensex and Hong Kong Hang Seng helped the EM index re-tag cycle highs. And as I write, Bitcoin is making a parabolic run higher...

    The reason why the Dow made a new high this week is because defense stocks, particularly Boeing are overweight in the index. And the market duly sensed that Keynesian bombing of foreigners is Trump's only remaining fiscal policy option. The fact that his cabinet has half the Pentagon in it may have contributed to that assumption. He now has no less than three generals in the White House (Mattis, McMaster, Kelly).

    And we don't really know how many people are dying there either. Most of the people dying don't get a news story. Of my three friends that dropped dead, none of them were in any news story. I expect that's the same all over. So the only way we'll ever really know is by the truth leaking out through the data - the recent rise in mortality in the US, the 'spike in dying' in the UK, that kind of thing. But since 'the authorities' control most of the data sources, it might not even be that easy to see what's happening that way either.
