Event Update For 2017-10-04

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.

2017-10-04 - Hydrogen sulfide killing plants around the Salish Sea in the Pacific Northwest:

Quote: "Eelgrass is widely distributed in the Salish Sea region of the Pacific Northwest. Recently, however, loss of these plants is commonly reported. While no single culprit has been identified, there is evidence that local increases in Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) concentration may kill seedlings before they reach mature plant status. This could result in plant losses at specific locations. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a chemical compound notoriously toxic to humans and animals because it interferes with cellular respiration. More recently, studies have shown that it is also toxic to plants."

Note: The Pacific Northwest is where marine life was first spotted fleeing the depths of the ocean, in 2002. That's where hydrogen sulfide is produced in the oceans - in the depths. That marine life was fleeing death. The problem has undoubtedly gotten much worse since 2002, thus the rise of 'unknown gas odors' around the world, the rise in car fires and other mysterious fires, people mysteriously dropping dead, the whitening of the Sun, etc. So the fact that it is in this area that they've noticed hydrogen sulfide killing coastal plants isn't all that surprising. It took a while to move from killing the deep sea life in this area to killing life on the edge of the sea. It's getting into the atmosphere now too, randomly blowing around, hitting a beach here or a school there...

2017-10-04 - Unknown 'gas odor' evacuates eight schools in Denver (Colorado):

Quote: "Denver Public Schools is working with Xcel Energy to figure out what caused an odor late Wednesday morning that led to the evacuation of eight schools in southwest Denver.

'An odor, a really strong odor, and it was making our heads dizzy so we had to evacuate to a bowling alley,' said 13-year-old Jesus Carrillo. Xcel Energy says 15 workers responded to search for the source of the odor. Xcel says no leaks were found. Denver Police and Denver Fire also responded and could not identify the source of the problem."

It has its own separate jungle, a river and a rich wildlife. The cave is five times larger than Phong Nha cave, a nearby cave previously considered the biggest cave in Vietnam.  Son Ðoòng means 'Mountain river cave' and the researchers estimate that the cave is about five million years old. The largest room in the Son Ðoòng cave is more than five kilometers long and stretches 200 meters into the air. With these dimensions, Son Ðoòng overtook Deer Cave in Malaysia in 2009 to take the title of the world's largest cave."

    At least 22 people killed as Tropical Storm "Nate" hits Central America

    As of early October 6, 2017, Tropical Storm "Nate" is blamed for the deaths of at least 22 people, 15 in Nicaragua and 7 in Costa Rica. However, there are 15 people still missing in Costa Rica and the death toll is expected to rise. The storm hit Nicaragua and Honduras on Thursday and is expected to hit or pass very near the Yucatan Peninsula before it enters warm waters and rapidly strengthens on its way toward US Gulf Coast.  [more]

    Tropical Storm Nate kills 22 in Central America as it heads north to the U.S. Gulf Coast, where it is expected to strike as a hurricane this weekend.

    The Federal Office for Radiation Protection said Thursday that elevated levels of the isotope Ruthenium-106 have been reported in Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and France since Sept. 29. Spokesman Jan Henrik Lauer told The Associated Press the source of the Ruthenium-106 isn't known but calculations indicate it may have been released in eastern Europe.

    Ruthenium-106 is used for radiation therapy to treat eye tumours, and sometimes as a source of energy to power satellites.

Many of the centers where patients take their therapies do not have water and others have no power or fuel for their generators. In other cases, many of the patients have waited five to six days without taking their therapies for not having transportation and in other cases because the roads are blocked or collapsed, preventing patients from reaching their health centers.

  5. Well, I try to remember to be considerate if I'm late, and post a message on the previous day's update, saying I'm running late, and then I delete that message when I get the next update up. But yeah, I understand what you're saying. I think the same thoughts in reverse, of course. What a long, strange trip it's been...but now let's see it get even stranger!

    Fake news posts blame Puerto Rico truck drivers for refusing to ship relief supplies – “There’s no strike, and union truck drivers have been trying to move aid shipments across Puerto Rico”

    Conservative news outlets have been spreading a false story online that wrongly says aid to Hurricane Maria victims isn’t being distributed in Puerto Rico because union truck drivers have gone on strike.

    But they aren’t right to blame union truckers for the lack of movement. It turns out the blog posts are delivering misinformation about this problem.

    [here's some FACTS of life on the ground after a CAT 5]
    Valle did say in the Huffington Post interview that there was a lack of drivers, but he also went on to add the drivers deserved "zero blame:"

    "They can’t get to work, the infrastructure is destroyed, they can’t get fuel themselves, and they can’t call us for help because there’s no communication. The will of the people of Puerto Rico is off the charts. The truck drivers have families to take care of, many of them have no food or water. They have to take care of their family’s needs before they go off to work, and once they do go, they can’t call home."

    "The problem is the supply chain." [more; DUH!!]

  8. What they need to do in Puerto Rico is send in the Army, as many troops as needed (100k+ I would think), with as many resources as needed, for as long as needed. Our Army can do anything and everything: rebuild roads, rebuild bridges, establish supply chains, provide communications and security, distribute aid, everything. The Army's capabilities are not just about 'fire and fury', but about doing whatever needs to be done.

    Trump totally missed the boat on this, for whatever reason. When a huge catastrophe comes along, it always ends one of two ways for the president: 1) you don't provide adequate aid (as with Katrina) and people suffer and you're viewed as incompetent and you're held responsible; or 2) you provide massive aid (as with Sandy) and you look competent and gain respect.

    Also, sending in the Army on a huge scale would not only help the Puerto Ricans, it would also be excellent training for what they will be called on to do more as time passes on the mainland: catastrophe mitigation.

  9. See, that was my view of the military growing up - they were there to help and protect (the cops too were on our side back then). After Kennedy was killed by the CIA, everything changed for the worse.

    Like McPerson says, every year gets worse now. It might have been different in some respects, but the demise of civilization by our own hand was baked into the way we are.

    Too many humans. Overshot the carrying capacity, reckless with resources, and humans are gifted with a genetic DEFECT - big brains with little to no self-control. Clever but by no means wise.

    All right, enough armchair philosophy.
