Event Update For 2018-01-11

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.

    Methane hydrates are growing in the middle of winter!

    "On January 1st Arctic methane at 2,764 ppb spiked upwards into the atmosphere, which, according to Arctic News: “Was likely caused by methane hydrate destabilization in the sediments on the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean.”

    Here’s the problem: On average, sea surface temps were 23.35°F warmer during the period October 1 to December 30, 2017 compared to the 30-year average temperature. On October 25th, the sea surface was as warm as 63.5°F. For the Arctic, that’s hot, not just warmer. And, that brings forth a big-gulp question: What’s going to happen in summertime when methane hydrates are more exposed? [more]

    Costs of 2017 US Weather Disasters Demolish Previous Record

    Several studies are projecting total global future costs of ACD in the tens of trillions of dollars. US banking giant Citigroup released a report in 2015 warning that inaction on ACD could cost up to $44 trillion by the year 2060. A report in the journal Nature in 2013 warned of unchecked ACD causing global damages upwards of $60 trillion -- from unchecked release of Arctic methane gases alone.

    We often speak of budgets and financial projections like these by casually using numbers in the "trillions," but fail to recognize the gravity of such predictions. For perspective, a useful tool is to consider that one trillion seconds translates to 31,709.8 years.

    A 2015 study by Cambridge University's Judge business school warned that global damage from a "moderate warming scenario" would be a staggering $400 trillion.

    2017 was the third-hottest year on record for Earth and the third straight year that all 50 US states had above-average temperatures for the entire year. The five warmest years for the lower 48 states have all occurred since 2006.

    The ACD impacts we've seen thus far are a result of humans having increased the global temperature approximately 1°C. Behind closed doors, oil giants Shell and BP are planning for global temperatures to rise by as much as 5°C by 2050. The costs -- financial and beyond – are, at this point, too great to predict.[more]

    No Conspiracy: US Military Seeks Control of Your Facebook Account

    Facebook moves to stomp on freedom of information

    Facebook overhauls news feed to focus on friends and family

    That means its 2 billion users will see fewer news articles, viral videos and other media content. Instead, they'll see more baby pictures and status updates from aunts, childhood friends and co-workers. The change is the biggest tweak the social network has made to the news feed -- essentially the soul of Facebook -- in years.

    The idea is to let you have more "meaningful interactions" and to try to make sure you don't suffer from the time you spend on Facebook. Last month, the company released a report on how people consume content on Facebook and on the consequences of that behavior. Passively scrolling and reading things, it found, can have negative effects, while being more interactive -- "liking" posts and writing comments -- can be positive. [more]

  4. That buffoon politician in Kansas who said "marijuana makes black people crazy" because of "their character" just lends credence to the belief of many the on both coasts that "flyover country" is filled with backwards ass dumbfucks. Clearly this is a moron who still believes the false propaganda that was encouraged with the 1930s Reefer Madness film. Back when the government was selling the voting population on the need to outlaw marijuana, which was up until that time not illegal. That was one of the worst outcomes of the FDR era.

    Sandy Hook evidence was compromised by 'unnecessary personnel' says police report

    A new report on one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history reveals that police allowed civilians to enter the crime scene, step on bullet casings and compromise the integrity of evidence before it was processed.

    [see SOTT] Comment: A sloppy investigation was a boon to the FBI in covering its tracks and compromising evidence in the framing of their favored patsy. If the FBI wanted this scene to be kept pristine, it would have been done. See also:

  8. Working below the radar, Congress is unleashing surveillance

    The Fourth Amendment - which guarantees privacy in our persons, houses, papers and effects - permits the government to invade that privacy only when a judge has signed a warrant that authorizes surveillance, a search or a seizure. And judges may only issue warrants when they have found probable cause to believe that the government surveillance or invasion of the target's privacy will produce evidence of criminal behavior. The Fourth Amendment further requires that the judicial warrant describe specifically the place to be searched or the person or thing to be seized.

    The FISA-created procedure, enacted in defiance of the Fourth Amendment - which makes no distinction between government evidence gathering and government intelligence gathering - permits a secret court in Washington to issue general warrants based on the government's need to gather intelligence about national security from foreigners among us. It pretends that the standard is probable cause of foreign agency, but this has now morphed into the issuance of general warrants whenever the government wants them.

    Since 1977, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has issued well over 99 percent of the warrants that the government has requested. And these warrants do not specifically describe the place to be searched or the person or thing to be seized. A typical FISC-issued warrant authorizes government surveillance on all landlines, mobile devices and desktop computers in a given area or ZIP code. One infamous FISC-issued search warrant permitted the feds to surveil all Verizon customers in the U.S. - in excess of 115 million people - without any evidence of crime or even suspicion about any of them.

    Now back to the Trump administration's work below the radar. Even in the fresh aftermath of 9/11, when the government's respect for constitutional norms was at a lamentably low point, the government interpreted the Fourth Amendment as requiring the government to separate its intelligence functions from its law enforcement work. The government recognized that its trigger for mass surveillance - namely, looking for a foreign agent among the populace - was a far lower standard than probable cause of crime, which is what the Fourth Amendment requires.

    Today, the federal government's computers are permanently connected to the mainframes of all telecoms and computer service providers in America, so the spying is in real time. Today, the federal government employs more than 60,000 domestic spies - one spy for every 5,500 Americans. Today, if any of them come across evidence of crimes while listening to your telephone calls or reading your texts or emails ostensibly for intelligence purposes, there is little they can do about it.

    Until now.

    Now, hidden beneath the "Fire and Fury" controversy is the muffled sound of the Trump administration and Republican congressional leaders plotting the enactment of an addition to FISA that would permit the use of evidence of crimes in federal court even when it is discovered during mass surveillance authorized by general warrants.

    If enacted, this radical, unconstitutional hole in the Fourth Amendment would bring the country full circle back to the government's use of general warrants to harass and prosecute - general warrants so odious to our forebears that they took up arms against the king's soldiers to be rid of them.
