Event Update For 2017-11-07

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.

2017-11-07 - 'Chemical smell' hits home on Redland Drive in Kirk Ella area in coastal Hull (Britain), 3 miles from the coast:

Quote: "Redland Drive, Kirk Ella. Tue 7 Nov 2017 18:36 (No:24369) Report of chemical smell in property. Inspection carried out, nothing found."

Note: Maybe a suburb of Hull. The address comes back as: 'Redland Dr, Kirk Ella, Willerby, Hull HU10 7UX, UK'

2017-11-07 - Passenger plane engine bursts into flame as it lands at airport in coastal Sea-Tac (Washington):

Quote: "A Hawaiian Airlines plane with only a crew on board landed safely at Sea-Tac International Airport Tuesday night after one of its engines caught fire, officials said."

Note: This is the 101st aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2017...

2017-11-07 - Pallet factory destroyed by fire at 11:19 PM in Camden (Michigan):

Quote: "A local pallet factory in the village of Camden was destroyed in an overnight fire. The Camden Fire Department was initially dispatched to the scene at 11:19 p.m. Monday night, according to Camden Fire Chief Mike Kurtz, who added that crews immediately began calling for mutual aid from neighboring departments."

2017-11-07 - Two pallets of cardboard burst into flame inside warehouse in Tonica (Illinois):

Quote: "Illinois Valley Mineral employees prevented further damage of a warehouse when they moved two burning pallets with a forklift. Tonica Fire Department responded to a call around 10 p.m. Monday at Illinois Valley Mineral, 575 N. 19th Road, according to a press release from Tonica Fire Department. Upon arrival they found employees extinguishing two pallets of compressed cardboard just outside of a building. They had used a forklift to move the pallets from inside the building and were using fire extinguishers to contain the fire, according to Tonica Fire Department."

2017-11-07 - High-rise building under construction heavily damaged by fire in coastal Mumbai (India):

2017-11-07 - Multiple people go nuts, some strip naked, bark like dogs, in Sullivan (Missouri), near the Meramec River:

Quote: "Police in Sullivan said they responded to multiple reports of bizarre human behavior over the weekend, likely the result of the drug 'Flakka,' a synthetic drug known to cause crazy behavior. Sullivan police told News 4 they responded to reports of people barking like dogs, running nude, and breaking into homes and business. They received at least one report of a person stripping naked to shower in a soda fountain."

Note: Yeah, they tried to blame bath salts or Flakka for the two guys who stripped naked and ate the faces off people too, but after testing, neither proved to have any drugs in their system. That seems to be their 'go to' excuse for this kind of behavior. Maybe this particular event WAS Flakka, but given the track record of blaming Flakka or bath salts for such events and then it not turning out to be any drugs at all, it'd obviously be foolish to make such an assumption. Eventually everyone who doesn't burn to death or fall over dead or die in a traffic accident or starve to death from a collapsed biosphere or whatever will go nuts just like these people. This may become widespread and start happening regularly at any time. Some people went nuts similarly earlier this year in and around coastal Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and no drugs were found in any of them, mentioned in the 2017-03-03 update...

2017-11-07 - Stephen Hawking says we have 600 years left before Earth becomes a fireball:

Note: First he said we had 1000 years but didn't mention fire. Now it's down to 600 years and he mentions fire. I said a long time ago that scientists are going to be moving closer to what I'm saying - since what I'm saying is accurate and truthful - or else they're gonna look oblivious and stupid. Welp, they're moving closer, or at least Stephen Hawking is. He still needs to lop off about 580 years or so from that timeframe though. Maybe he'll have seen enough to do that before he's dead. Time will tell!

    Globalized Capitalism Won't Survive What Comes Next

    Sucking the middle class dry to boost the stock market, is ending. You can't get blood from a stone. The casino class are so mesmerized by their fake wealth, they're totally ignoring the 'Conomy. We live in a society run by and for rapacious con men. America's biggest problem is morality. It doesn't have any...

    The post-2008 free money bailout gave corporations free license to continue the looting that led to that meltdown in the first place. The housing bubble was just a symptom of the bigger economic problem which is corporate demand displacement. The ubiquitous narrative is that 2008 was an isolated event. We successfully borrowed our way out of a debt crisis.

    Eight years later, these major countries are all ponzi borrowers in a "global synchronized expansion". Of debt: [see chart]

    Apple manufactures all of its products overseas, keeps all of its cash overseas, borrows debt to buyback stock and pay dividends to a global investor base. Is it really an American company?

    It's called profits without prosperity aka. fake wealth for a fake generation

    "Five Eight years after the official end of the Great Recession, corporate profits are high, and the stock market is booming. Yet most Americans are not sharing in the recovery. While the top 0.1% of income recipients—which include most of the highest-ranking corporate executives—reap almost all the income gains, good jobs keep disappearing, and new employment opportunities tend to be insecure and underpaid. Corporate profitability is not translating into widespread economic prosperity. The allocation of corporate profits to stock buybacks deserves much of the blame"

    But why do companies spend so much money buying back their own stock? For two reasons 1) to cover up insider option dilution 2) to cover up stagnant revenues, because they've outsourced the economy

    UN Human Rights Commission slams Australia on refugees policy amid Manus Island saga – PNG government threatens forcible removal – Activists scale Sydney Opera House

    Chef José Andrés and the Trump administration are fighting over Puerto Rico – “I didn’t put the word ‘emergency’ in FEMA. They need to ask themselves what’s the definition of ‘emergency’. The definition of that to me is feeding people now.”

    Celebrity chef José Andrés has helped cook and deliver 2.2 million meals in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria flattened the island, at one point cranking out 150,000 meals a day. But while his effort has been loudly praised across the country, the Trump administration, which awarded him two contracts through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has been curiously quiet on his efforts as they wound down.

    America's Finest: Blind drunk FBI Counterterrorism Supervisor had gun and Rolex stolen by 'exotic dancer'

    In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.'s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report.

    The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau's headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas. An F.B.I. spokesman, Michael P. Kortan, said the incident was the subject of an internal investigation and declined to give additional comment.

    Mr. Manson and other senior agents were in Charlotte for training, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the episode. The agents later told the police that they had been drinking with women who said they were exotic dancers [more]

    [SOTT]Comment: It really is heartening to know that a person tasked with "overseeing all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas" is of such a high caliber. And people wonder why everyone with half a neuron firing doesn't believe a word the FBI said about the Las Vegas shooting.

    environmentalists have questioned those projections, noting that recent sales on Alaska’s North Slope have failed to produce the level of revenue that would generate that much money. Given the costs of exploration in the Arctic, oil prices typically must be at least $70 a barrel to justify drilling: Right now West Texas crude is selling for just under $57 a barrel. [more]

    Mapping how to feed 9 billion humans, while avoiding environmental calamity

    Yesterday The Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation unveiled an ambitious plan to protect and connect 50 percent of the world’s land area as part of a broader effort to curb global warming, stave off the global extinction crisis, and ensure food availability for the planet’s growing human population.

    The first step of the “Safety Net” initiative is to identify the best opportunities to protect and restore ecosystems that underpin human well-being and sustain healthy wildlife populations. That means incorporating data on variables ranging from species richness to climate trends to deforestation rates for every point on Earth’s surface. [more]
