Quote: "A retiree armed with multiple assault rifles strafed an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas from a high-rise hotel window on Sunday, slaughtering at least 59 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history before killing himself. The barrage of gunfire from the 32nd-floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of 22,000 people came in extended bursts that lasted several minutes, as throngs of terrified music fans desperately cowered on the open ground, hemmed in by fellow concertgoers, while others at the edge tried to flee. More than 525 people were injured - some by gunfire or shrapnel, some trampled - in the pandemonium adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip as police scrambled to locate the assailant. Police identified the gunman as Stephen Paddock, 64, who lived in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada."

2017-10-02 - Hydrogen sulfide blowing off the ocean prompts committee to investigate in coastal Huntington Beach (California):

Quote: "The Huntington Beach City Council formed a committee Monday to address the mysterious foul odors afflicting the community. The council voted 6-0 to work with other agencies to identify the source of the sulfur-like smell and possible solutions. Councilman Erik Peterson was absent."

Quote: "Councilman Billy O’Connell, expressing dissatisfaction with the progress of the South Coast Air Quality Management District in responding to complaints of the smell of hydrogen sulfide, suggested the city create an ad hoc committee to work with residents and create a 'Coastal Area Odors work plan.'"

Quote: "One city councilmember says the smell has gotten worse..."

Note: First time they've explicitly mentioned that it's hydrogen sulfide hitting the coast in this area, not just a 'foul odor' or 'sulfur odor'. I was 99.99% sure that's what it was before they even said so - what else could it be? Nobody anywhere knows what chronically breathing even small amounts of hydrogen sulfide does to people. And this certainly explains the nausea and headaches - those are light hydrogen sulfide poisoning symptoms. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there's more people suffering seizures, 'medical events', strokes, heart attacks, memory loss problems and 'untimely deaths' in this area. In any case, if you're living in Huntington Beach, Seal Beach or Long Beach and you smell a 'rotten egg' odor or 'sulfur odor', you're being poisoned. But there's a committee investigating it, so now we'll see if the committee can investigate the problem away. It's Earth versus a committee!

2017-10-02 - As the permafrost continues melting in Alaska, burying the dead becomes a problem:

Quote: "Climate change is thawing the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta's permafrost, and it's doing more than cracking foundations, sinking roads and accelerating erosion. In villages like Kong, communities have stopped burying their dead because, as the permafrost melts, the oldest part of their cemetery is sinking. Digging graves in the soggy ground was just making it worse."

2017-10-02 - Man has 'medical emergency' on billboard in Charlotte (North Carolina):

2017-10-03 - Unknown odor hits Burnley and Padiham (Britain):

2017-10-03 - Man in his 20s or 30s collapses and foams at the mouth in Boston (Britain):

2017-10-03 - Huge volcanic eruptions in Siberia were the cause of the Permian-Triassic extinction:

Quote: "At the same time, explosive interactions of the magma with older coal deposits could have released large amounts of carbon dioxide and methane, two greenhouse gases, which would explain the intense global warming recorded in the oceans and on land at the time of the mass extinctions. The warm oceans also became sluggish and depleted in dissolved oxygen, contributing to the extinction of many forms of life in the sea."

Note: That's right, those volcanic eruptions burned an enormous amount of coal and methane in the Siberian Traps. Then the Earth heated up and the oceans went anoxic and spewed hydrogen sulfide and methane. The hydrogen sulfide and methane wiped out the atmospheric UV protection, making the Sun look whiter rather than yellow (as is happening to the Sun now for the same reason), and most any species that didn't die from fires or poison got fried by UV or suffocated from lack of oxygen, or they died from the sheer heat, or the lack of food from a collapsed biosphere, or from floods or drought or disease.

The same sequence of events is playing out right now, but with one difference: it's not volcanic eruptions burning vast amounts of coal in one (large) geographic area, it's us, human civilization, burning vast amounts of coal from wherever we've found it, all over the planet. (And add to that the oil and natural gas that we burn too.) But the Earth doesn't care WHO burns the coal/oil/gas, or WHY it burns. The Earth reacts WHEN the coal/oil/gas burns.

So we've replaced volcanoes as the source of the coal/oil/gas burning, but since that's irrelevant to the Earth, the result will be exactly the same: mass extinction and a global 'reset' on life on this planet, with most species dying off, followed by a very long period of recovery. In 20 or 30 million years the Earth will be back to what we think of as normal, minus human beings and most species that exist today, but plus many new species that don't exist today. What's left of the human race may BE coal by then. We've awakened - or replicated - the most powerful and the most ancient of dooms and there's no putting the foul djinni back in the bottle. The End.

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. DPS says evacuations began around 11:30 a.m. and numerous businesses in the area of South Federal Boulevard and West Evans Avenue were also affected. '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."

Quote: "'I've never seen anything like this -- such a large area affected by an odor and we don't even know where the odor came from,' said Will Jones, director of Media Relations for DPS. 'It's very concerning.'"

Note: Not a natural gas leak, sooooo...?

2017-10-04 - Unknown 'gas odor' evacuates school in Houston (Texas):

Algal blooms, which contain cyanobacteria, have become a common occurrence on the lake each summer, thanks to warm water temperatures and the extensive use of fertilizer on the region's farmland."

2017-10-04 - Massive numbers of dangerous Portuguese man-of-war invading shorelines in Britain:

Quote: "An invasion of potentially fatal jellyfish-like creatures on Britain's shores is the biggest ever recorded in the UK. The Portuguese man-of-war were first spotted in Cornwall and have been seen as far east as Milford-on-Sea in Hampshire. The Marine Conservation Society said it had received reports of more than 2,000 of the organisms, which have long purple tentacles. It amounts to the greatest number of Portuguese man-of-war recorded in the UK since records began in 2003, the MCS said. Dr Peter Richardson said there had been reports of them in Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and Wales. 'It's the biggest we have ever recorded and they are still coming in,' he said."

Hah, just kidding - they only believe in free market capitalism when it suits them, but when it comes to doling out big bucks to corporations, can't have any of that pesky free market capitalism BS! In any case, it's ironic that taxpayers are paying to subsidize companies that are killing them and will, in the end, exterminate the entire human race...

2017-10-04 - Massive cave, the biggest in the world, discovered in Vietnam:

Quote: "The Son Ðoòng cave is not only the world's largest cave, it is a separate little world. Under the roof there is enough space to fit a 40 storey skyscraper. 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."

2017-10-05 - Unknown odor hits school, several students sent to the hospital, in Indio (California), 21 miles from the Salton Sea:

Quote: "An unusual odor that made students feel ill led to the evacuation of 1,900 students from Shadow Hills High School in Indio on Thursday, Oct. 5. Six people were sent to area hospitals for evaluation, and another 22 evaluated at school with minor symptoms, according to a Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department news release. The incident was reported at 12:23 p.m. at the school in the 39000 block of Jefferson Street. The county’s hazardous materials team was unable to locate a source of the odor."

Quote: "Anna Rodriguez, a student at Shadow Hills, said people started smelling something weird during lunch, some saying it smelled like gas. School officials then immediately started rounding students up and sent them outside."

Note: So it smelled like (natural) gas, e.g. a 'rotten egg' odor, but no natural gas was detected and no leaks were found. That was hydrogen sulfide. They're lucky people didn't start foaming at the mouth, having seizures and/or dropping dead. Of course, that may happen the next time some poison gas blows through...

2017-10-05 - Unknown 'gas odor' hits middle school two days in a row in Crofton (Maryland), 4 miles from the coast:

Quote: "A reported gas smell at Crofton Middle School has caused a brief delay in morning classes for the past two days. Firefighters were called to the school Wednesday and Thursday around 8 a.m. for a reported smell of gas inside the school, Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Russ Davies said. While responders combed the building with gas meters to detect any possible leaks, Davies said no leaks were located and the building was cleared within a half-hour in both instances."

Quote: "German officials say that a spike in radioactivity has been detected in the air in Western and Central Europe but there's no threat to human health. 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 tumors, and sometimes as a source of energy to power satellites."

2017-10-05 - Drunk man in Wyoming says he's from the year 2048 and that aliens are coming in 2018:

Quote: "Police say a central Wyoming man they arrested for public intoxication claimed he had traveled back in time to warn of an alien invasion. Casper police say the man they encountered at 10:30 p.m. Monday claimed he was from the year 2048. KTWO-AM in Casper reports that the man told police that he wanted to warn the people of Casper that aliens will arrive next year, and that they should leave as soon as possible. He asked to speak to the president of the town, about 170 miles (270 kilometers) northwest of Cheyenne. The man told police he was only able to time travel because aliens filled his body with alcohol. He noted that he was supposed to be transported to the year 2018, not this year."

Note: I think the rule for alcohol-based time travel is one year per beer, so obviously he had one beer too many to end up here in 2017!

Quote: "A plague outbreak in Madagascar has killed at least 74 people and 805 cases have been reported so far. The government has deployed resources to curb the disease, but many obstacles remain. As plague cases rose last week [week of 9 Oct 2017] in Madagascar's capital, many city dwellers panicked. They waited in long lines for antimicrobials at pharmacies and reached through bus windows to buy masks from street vendors. Schools have been canceled, and public gatherings are banned. For the 1st time, the disease long seen in the country's remote areas is largely concentrated in its 2 largest cities, Antananarivo and Toamasina."

Quote: "According to Russian geologists, the giant sinkholes were formed as a result of emissions of methane from the melting permafrost."

Quote: "Giant sinkholes in the ground formed as a result of emission of gas in the Yamal-Nenetsk autonomous region have grown in size in three years."

Note: I said when these first appeared in 2014 that this is the kind of event where if you see it happen once, it's highly likely it's going to happen again and again, and it is. It had actually already started before 2014, on the sea floor in the Arctic, with hundreds or even thousands of kilometer-wide methane seeps, but it took a little while before the problem spread to land. Now the only question is where ELSE the ground will begin exploding on land. I'd bet on Canada and/or Alaska, since both are already experiencing rapidly escalating permafrost melt...

2017-10-19 - Unknown human-cat creature found in Malaysia:

Note: The authorities say it's a toy. Look at the video and watch it move, arch its neck, try to bite the hand of the person holding it. The latter indicates awareness of its surroundings. That's no toy. And if it were a toy then they'd have had no problem pointing to a web page where you could purchase one. Did they do that? Nope. I looked for it online myself and couldn't find anything remotely like that for sale anywhere, and if someone was selling these, they'd have ads up all over the place and they'd be making gobs of money and a name for themselves. So the authorities made up the toy story to hide the fact that this thing is real. I'm from the Show Me State - if they want to say it's a toy, fine, then show me a page where I can order one. It appears to be not a toy, but a genetic chimera, human-cat perhaps, or human-something anyway, something with claws and fangs, which was probably abandoned by its mother...

2017-10-19 - Unknown foul odor hits Cedar Rapids (Iowa):

Quote: "'Strange smell,' said Cedar Rapids Resident Bo Johnson. 'It's smelly. It's stinky.' 'It was nauseating,' said Tara Farris. 'It was really bad.' 'It just smelled awful. I thought somebody had passed gas,' said Trenton Richard. 'I don't know what it was but it was the most disgusting thing ever.' It's the sniff without a source that has people in Cedar Rapids on edge."

2017-10-19 - Unknown 'smell of gas' hits train in coastal Glasgow (Scotland):

Quote: "The rail company closed Dalmarnock Train Station at around 3.30pm on Thursday and cancelled low level services leaving from Glasgow Central Station while emergency services investigated a reported smell of gas. No gas was found and services resumed at 6.20pm."

Quote: "When we were passing through the tunnel between Bridgeton and Dalmarnock the smell of gas was intoxicating and I felt sick. Some folk were joking about not striking a match but I didn’t feel very comfortable passing through it. It was really strong and filled the whole train."

Quote: "A spokeswoman for ScotRail Alliance said investigations showed the smell was not the result of a gas leak."

Note: Excellent, not natural gas. So probably just some poison gas then...

The creatures typically live in tropical waters around the world, occasionally emerging a little farther north in sub-tropical waters. But no one has ever recorded pyrosomes as far north as Alaska."

Quote: "An area of Keene has been deemed safe after city police and fire officials responded to multiple calls about a gas-like odor Tuesday morning. The first call came in about 9:45 a.m. from the Cheshire County Courthouse at 33 Winter St., where someone reported a propane-like smell outside the building. Three additional calls then came in from properties on Summer and Castle streets reporting the smell, too. Three fire engines from Keene responded to the scene. The odor was ruled 'unfounded' after officials used a detection device on each street and found no levels of gas. Lt. Caleb Dodson said the odor could be smelled in the Cheshire County Courthouse. 'You could smell it outside and inside," Dodson said. 'It came in through the windows.' Dodson said the odor dispersed, and the source wasn't identified."

Note: Just east (downwind) of the Ashuelot River Reservoir. Not propane or natural gas, but smelled like rotten eggs, soooo...?

Quote: "Temperatures took off at LAX Tuesday morning, and they didn’t even need a runway. The National Weather Services reported 104 degrees at the airport, upping the previous record set on this date in 1965 — 96 degrees. But that wasn’t the only record melting away on Tuesday as a heat wave that began baking Southern California continued its second day. In fact, the NWS  Twitter feed was essentially a list of broken records."

Quote: "Temperatures reached 108 degrees in San Luis Obispo, shattering the previous record of 103 set in 1959, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey. Santa Maria also saw a record high temperature for the second straight day Tuesday, coming in at 102 degrees and passing the previous mark of 97 set in 1965, Lindsey said."

Note: So it was probably 'sewer gas', e.g. hydrogen sulfide. It might have blown in off the ocean, like the hydrogen sulfide hitting Huntington Beach and surrounding areas in California, or maybe it blew in off the ocean, infiltrated the sewer system and then came back out. Either way, there's some deadly poison gas blowing around town...

Quote: "We have received reports of a strong smell of gas across Fareham. Gas engineers are on site investigating this."

Quote: "SGN have said there’s nothing so far to suggest came from its network."

Quote: "People on social media reported smelling gas in Titchfield Common, Park Gate and Locks Heath as well as in the town centre."

Note: This is at least the third time this city's been hit by an unknown rotten egg odor in just the last few months...

2017-10-26 - Unknown 'chemical smell' hits coastal Ryde on the Isle of Wight (Britain):

Quote: "Fire crews have been called to Ryde to investigate a chemical smell. Crews rushed to a building on St Thomas Street following reports of the strange smell. An Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue service spokesperson said crews remained at the scene."

Note: Ryde is about 8 miles south of Fareham, across The Solent (body of water) from Fareham. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2017-10-26 - Unknown 'gas smell' hits university building in Rochester (Minnesota):

Quote: "Three fire companies used hazardous materials monitors with gas detecting capability to walk through the entire building, but were unable to find any issues, Jungels said. All gas-burning appliances were checked, including the kitchen and roof top units, but no issues were found. Minnesota Energy responded to assist with the investigation; no gas was detected."

Note: Natural gas is odorless, so they add methyl mercaptan to it, which smells like rotten eggs. Methyl mercaptan is made with hydrogen sulfide. So people are confusing the smell of methyl mercaptan, the odorant added to propane and natural gas, with hydrogen sulfide. That's why so many people have reported 'smelling gas' but when responders or workers show up, they don't detect any natural gas. Natural gas detectors won't detect hydrogen sulfide. This has been happening over and over. Eventually there will be so much hydrogen sulfide blowing around that people will be dropping dead like flies, going insane, and fires and explosions will be rampant. Nobody on the surface of the Earth will be surviving that. We're just seeing who dies in what order as the credits for the Human Race Movie scroll by...

Quote: "Since August it's estimated that at least 124 people have died, and an additional 1,192 infection cases have been logged. There have also been around 70 cases of bubonic plague, but it is the much more virulent pneumonic plague that has authorities worried. 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."

Quote: "Scientists warns concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surged at 'a record-breaking speed' last year, as fears over feedback loops grow..."

We may have gotten the train rolling down the track but the train is speeding out of control with nobody at the helm at this point and there are no brakes. Next stop, Extinctionville!
