Event Update For 2017-12-20

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.

2017-12-20 - Hydrogen sulfide almost kills man, employer never reported it, other coverups mentioned, in Saskatchewan (Canada):

Quote: "One moment, he was a 46-year-old hockey-playing oilfield worker connecting a hose to a valve at a rural Saskatchewan production facility in February 2014. The next, his face was sprayed with a mixture of oil, water and gas. He inhaled and swallowed it. His medical records show that soup was laced with hydrogen sulphide (H2S), a toxic gas that carries risks to the human body ranging from burning vocal chords and olfactory senses to causing instant death. Three years later, Crawford’s body struggles to complete its most basic tasks: chew food, swallow, taste, smell, speak properly, breathe clearly and sleep soundly."

Quote: "A corrosive gas that is fatal to humans in high concentrations is a non-toxic substance under Canadian environmental law, say federal researchers in a new proposal. Staff at Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada came to this conclusion in a draft assessment of hydrogen sulfide, published in September. The proposal found that the gas, also known as H2S or sour gas, does not enter the environment in quantities, concentrations or conditions 'that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.'"

Quote: "Their conclusion is at odds with the substance’s track record — in the last five years alone, H2S has killed at least one oilpatch worker, sickened dozens of others and left livestock dead in a pasture in a small corner of Saskatchewan."

Note: Someone should fill a room up with H2S at 1 part per thousand concentration (0.1 percent hydrogen sulfide) and anyone who wants to call it non-toxic can go into that room for five minutes. Then the room can be cleared and their corpse can be dragged out. And after every corpse is dragged out, someone can say, 'Anyone else think hydrogen sulfide is non-toxic? Don't be shy, step right up!' I bet they'd run out of people willing to claim it's non-toxic real fuggin' fast...

2017-12-20 - Unknown 'sulfur odor' continues hitting Ahwatukee (Arizona), broad city probe launched:

Quote: "City and county officials have launched a coordinated effort to track down the source of an on-again, off-again stench that returned to Ahwatukee with a vengeance late last week. Led by city Office of Environmental Programs, several Phoenix departments are working with freeway developer Connect202Partners, Southwest Gas and the Maricopa County Air Quality Department to track the odor that has been plaguing a portion of Ahwatukee intermittently since August. 'You can’t even go outside,' complained Ahwatukee resident Joe Lanzo on Saturday, Dec. 16. 'It is actually seeping through the walls like a large sulfur smell.'"

Quote: "Three weeks ago, during the previous air quality alert, the stench was so bad that Lanzo said his son woke up vomiting."

Note: If he keeps breathing that gas then eventually that boy won't wake up at all...

Quote: "One of the biggest climate stories of the year was the seemingly never-ending stream of disastrous wildfires that engulfed the West."

2017-12-20 - A look at the many fires that have burned this year in coastal Mumbai (India):

Quote: "Is Mumbai burning? As Khairani Road fire claims 12 lives, a look at major infernos this year..."

Note: Mumbai's on the west coast of India, so it's sort of like the capital of the California of India. All areas on the west coasts of bodies of land will get hit by gases emanating from the body of water west of them, and that will cause fires. For California, that's the Pacific Ocean. For Portugal and northwest Spain that's the Atlantic Ocean. For Mumbai and the west coast of India that's the northern Indian Ocean or the Arabian Sea. All of those places have been hit by severe fires this year. Obviously these fires will continue to worsen as time goes on and this extinction event progresses...

2017-12-20 - Car goes up in flames and kills 34-year-old man at Walmart in Devils Lake (North Dakota):

Everything from utility poles and underground electrical lockers to cell towers, to SCRAP METAL, to parked and/or moving vehicles (including FIRE TRUCKS, POLICE CARS and AMBULANCES), HOMES and other buildings are blowing up and/or burning out, and just so you don't think it can effect YOU PERSONALLY, PEOPLE are suddenly bursting into flame via clothing, bedding, or being around burning leaves or trash.
    We've had reports here of people sitting on park benches or sitting by the ocean relaxing being suddenly on fire or exploded off their ass! Sumumabitch!

    STS "Tembin" (Vinta) about to hit Surigao del Sur, Philippines, reach typhoon strength before Vietnam

    Tropical Storm "Tembin," known as Vinta in the Philippines, formed late December 20, 2017, east of Philippines as the 27th named storm of the 2017 Pacific typhoon season.

    At current price levels, the CME futures will open halted limit down. Gamblers will not be happy as the underlying has no such mechanism. Putting futures on this ponzi scheme was the dumbest fucking thing Wall Street has ever done. $130 billion in lost market cap since the CME contract began trading 5 days ago.

    This is the biggest one day loss for the year. Closing in on the rising 50 day. When the last major one day loss occurred in September - which was albeit smaller - Bitcoin fell a further -25% below the 50 day, meaning 7,500 now: [see chart]
