Event Update For 2017-10-17

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.

    ‘Shrinking, shrinking, shrinking’: Puerto Rico faces a demographic disaster

    Thirty years ago this week, Wall Street slid into the abyss

Stop asking who was the shooter/s and LOOK at what is RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES. The question is not who was the shooter, the question is WHAT PRODUCTION COMPANY THEY USED and how they simulated the event and who was involved. Don't believe me? Watch this video. You will.

    Trump's NOAA nominee signed 20-year weather deal with China ... which is suspected of hacking NOAA

    By Andrew Freedman
    13 hours ago
    President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the nation's oceans and atmosphere agency is already facing political headwinds. 
    While environmental groups and some senators have expressed skepticism about the nomination of Barry Lee Myers, the CEO of AccuWeather, to lead the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the criticism to date has focused on possible conflicts of interest that could arise from the fact that he has spent much of his career leading a private sector weather forecasting company.
    However, potentially more problematic is Myers' role in securing a 2015 deal with the Chinese government that set up a 20-year joint venture to disseminate weather data in China.  [more]

    1. That YT video by MrMBB333 I shared last night and that you linked on Seemorerocks today also shows that a super typhoon is set to strike Tokyo on Monday.

  8. Yeah, I'm not the biggest fan of snopes myself. I tend to believe eyewitnesses too, since that's just people reporting what they see. I have often wondered if snopes is a disinfo site. I can't prove it is, but I definitely have suspicions.

    1. I think Snopes is a disinfo site. Now that doesn't mean that everything on it is wrong. That's what makes a disinfo site effective: Mix truth in with half-truths or even outright lies and misdirection.

  9. Snopes has been debunked. It's just some guy and his wife and their opinion. Sometimes they're correct.

    Thanks for digging into this phenomenon, Mike.
