Event Update For 2017-10-29

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.

Pneumonic plague is considered the most aggressive form of the disease, as it can spread through person-to-person contact. Otherwise known as lung-based plague, the disease arises when an advanced infection moves to a person's lungs. At this stage, the sufferer can then infect others via coughing or sneezing. Incubation time is very short - just 24 hours in most cases - and if untreated the pneumonic plague is always fatal."

Quote: "And now the deadly disease has spread into more African countries after taking root in Madagascar. Countries affected include South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius and Reunion."

  1. Taking my grand-daughter to school, before 6 a.m. there was a big wreck on Rt. 30 that made the morning traffic news HUGE jam up for about an hour. Later, and right down the road from me in Downingtown there was a WORSE accident at the height of rush hour backed up traffic in all directions around the town. My wife was stuck in it and was over an hour late for work.

    I've heard two ghost stories from people I bump into occasionally.
    Here's one:

    A few weeks ago, a guy and his wife were closing up, sitting at their desks doing paperwork. Store lights were off, doors were locked, they were in the office in the back. There's a stairway on one wall, and they distinctly heard someone come down the steps rather quickly. The husband called out "hey, who's still here?" as he got up, went over and opened the door to the stairway to find it dark and empty.

    A few days later he happened to bump into the guy who sold him the building, and he mentioned the strange happening. The man said, "My partner died on that job (building the house), did I forget to tell you that?"

    Gold bar certified by Royal Canadian Mint exposed as fake - market could 'temporarily seize up'

    The last time there was a widespread physical gold counterfeiting scare was in the summer of 2012 when as we reported the discovery of a single 10 oz Tungsten-filled gold bar in Manhattan's jewelry district led to a panic among the dealer community, which then resulted in local jewelry outlets discovering at least ten more fake 10-ounce "gold bars" filled with Tungsten. Fast forward to today when a similar instance of gold counterfeiting has been discovered, this time in Canada, and where the fake bar in question had been "certified" by the highest possible authority.

    David Dilley: Definitive Dates for the Onset of Major Global Cooling

    David Dilley of and provides the last piece of the puzzle to give definitive dates for the onset of major global cooling, where 2019-2020 will be the first really cold year, with another amplification in 2020-2021, bringing cold on a scale we have not seen in generations.

    Mr. Dilley's research is the foundation for GWO's Natural Climate Pulse Technology and is utilized in atmospheric and climate/weather prediction models created by Mr. Dilley and Global Weather Oscillations. The Climate Pulse Technology Models are utilized to predict specific climate/weather events 4-years in advance. [more]

    Report sees "momentum" against climate change and its impact on health

    Capital Ottawa breaks annual rainfall record, Canada

    Canada's capital Ottawa has broken its annual rainfall record on Monday, October 30, 2017, two months before the end of the year.

    Canada's capital Ottawa received a total of 1 213 mm (47.75 inches) of precipitation since the start of the year, breaking its previous record of 1 174 mm (46.22 inches)  recorded in 1972 for 39 mm (1.53 inches).

    The amount that the city received is also 270 mm (10.62 inches) more precipitation than the city's annual average, CBC Ottawa reports. [more]

    Scientists can't explain a 'worrying' rise in methane levels

    [wool YEAH, 'cause 'em goll-ang SATELLITES 'a been turned off!]

  7. Sounds like a bunch of hooey to me. David Dilley says the Earth operates on natural 'pulses', then cites as evidence of the beginning of one such cooling pulse the 'Year Without Summer' in 1816. The 'Year Without Summer' was caused by the VEI7 eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815:

    It is said that David Dilley's forecasts for hurricanes were the most accurate over ten years. But it is only David Dilley that says so. I looked - didn't see anyone else saying that.

    To be sure, David Dilley's research is used in David Dilley's models, as David Dilley mentions.

    So we will see what we will see. If I were a gambling man, which I'm not, I wouldn't be placing any bets on global cooling. Europe may do some freezing though, because of Greenland's ice melting, which is flooding the North Atlantic with ice cold fresh water and disrupting the current that carries heat across the ocean to Europe. That'll end when Greenland's done melting. London will be 20 feet underwater by then, so they'll be more interested in scuba diving there than in air temps.
