Event Update For 2018-01-28

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.

2018-01-28 - Car goes up in flames at 5 AM and kills person on the South Mopac Expressway in Austin (Texas):

Quote: "One person died after a vehicle caught fire in South Austin Sunday morning. Austin Police were called to the scene at 5 a.m. with reports of a vehicle on fire in the 3600 block of South MoPac Expressway near Slaughter Lane."

2018-01-28 - Car bursts into flame at 11 PM and kills woman and child, injures man, near Rabupura (India):

Quote: "A 28-year-old woman and her two-and-a-half-year-old son died and a man was injured after their car caught fire in Rabupura area, police said on Monday."

2018-01-28 - Man ignites and is seriously burned at home in coastal Christchurch (New Zealand):

Quote: "A man is critically injured after suffering burns at a Burwood property in Christchurch. Firecrews from Wainoni, New Brighton and St Albans attended the fire at Burwood Road at 5.45pm, but at first look there was no visible sign of a fire in the house."

2018-01-28 - Smoke from unknown source hits fraternity in coastal Berkeley (California), student has seizure:

Quote: "Firefighters responded to a UC Berkeley fraternity Sunday and found smoke but no fire. While there, however, a brother in the fraternity had an unrelated medical problem and needed to be taken by ambulance to the hospital, the Fire Department reports."

Quote: "Firefighters found smoke inside a laundry room on the property, but were ultimately unable to find any fire, said Battalion Chief Bill Kehoe of the Berkeley Fire Department. He said sometimes lint or dust in a laundry room can ignite, but then burns up leaving no evidence. Although no fire suppression was needed, the response proved timely. While firefighters were still on scene, one of the fraternity brothers passed out due to a medical issue, Kehoe said. A brother who is an EMT told BFD he believed the young man also had a seizure. As the patient was being walked to the ambulance, he passed out again."

Note: Filters and lint will also adsorb hydrogen sulfide from the atmosphere, and atmospheric gases will leave no trace when they burn too, unless they happen to ignite some matter. That's also much more likely than uncontaminated lint to cause people nearby to lose consciousness, have seizures or drop dead, and that's most likely to happen in coastal areas too, like, say, Berkeley...

    For those of us who are not admirers of President Trump, it’s even more painful to see the Democratic opposition descend into the stupendous dishonesty of the Russian Collusion story. When the intelligentsia of the nation looses its ability to think — when it becomes a dis-intelligentsia — then there are no stewards of reality left. Trump is crazy enough, but the “resistance” is dragging the country into dangerous madness.

  3. Heh, pretty slick, the memo release. That's half the conversation. The other half of the conversation - the rebuttal memo - is not being released for people to see. So it's like a trial where the jury is only allowed to hear the case from one side. It's certainly convenient if you're the one presenting your own viewpoint while simultaneously arranging to have the opposing viewpoint squelched. Every lawyer's dream - tada!

  4. Incidentally, I have no idea what that stuff is all about, and it's so insignificant in the grand scheme of things that I don't really care to spend any time figuring out what's it's all about. All I know is, when people feed me info slanted toward one viewpoint, and the other side of the story is purposely withheld from me, then someone's trying to psyop me and control my thinking.

    FCC chairman opposes proposed government-run 5G network

    This statement is similar to what Pai has said about his move to repeal net neutrality -- he favors the so-called "open market" over anything controlled by the government. And really, seeing how deep Pai's loyalties run with his former cronies, rather than the person who appointed him, this shouldn't come as a surprise. Given the current administration's stance toward "disloyalty" and opposing viewpoints, maybe we should expect a new FCC chairman in the near future too. [more]

So talk about too close for comfort! But A few months ago there was a barn fire even closer than this car fire was.

    I keep wondering when my neighbor's old partially rusted chevy truck and boat will have an "incident". He has both parked on the same side of his house. And the truck is parked just feet from his propane tank. Yep, it's just a matter of time. Will I warn him of JJFH? Nah. I already know he won't believe me if I tried. So ef him.

  7. Listen, I just present this crap as it comes up so we can at least keep up with it all - 'cause it's either gonna end with Trump dead or gone from office or a whole lotta people go to jail and "our 'watchdog agencies'" are purged of people with a political stance (might be impossible, resulting in civil war)] the way it's going. I gave up on politics years ago and was always and independent when I used to vote. Just like I present SOTT's point of view on a lot of stuff, but I don't back a lot of their agenda. Events speak for themselves and SOTT is a convenient outlet for a lot of important info. I assume the reader has their own take on all this (which is what "comments" are about).

    Also, I feel i'm living in a giant psy-op of Matrix dimensions.

    McCabe resignation prompts media speculation split: CNN blames Trump, Fox cites memo revelations

    'Shocked to his core': FBI Director Wray blown away after viewing contents of FISA memo, source says

    FBI Director Christopher Wray was "shocked to his core" after viewing a four-page FISA memo, a source told Fox News' Sean Hannity. The next day, he reportedly asked Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to resign. [more]

    [sounds more and more like the internal corruption basis of the Bourne movies]

    The four-page memo by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) reportedly accuses the FBI of abusing FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrants to spy on Donald Trump's campaign. Reports have emerged that McCabe is guilty of asking FBI agents to tamper with witness interviews.

    "There's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302s - those are the interviews with witness," Carter said, adding that such a move would be obstruction of justice. [more]

    The Layered Approach To Big Water - 9

    The point being that water at 4 deg C is 39.2 degrees F.

    That cold, not hot, water will melt glacial ice which is at 0 deg C, because of the laws of thermodynamics (not because it is "hot" water).

    Yes, "freezing cold water" will melt "ice cold ice" (and is doing so on a very massive scale in Greenland and Antarctica at this very moment).

    Ignoring the largest portion of the ocean then pontificating about how "hot" it is needs to stop.

    That should be replaced with an active deep water flotilla to measure it closely. [more; he mathematically models sea level change]

    The State of The Implosion

    It appears that all of the bullshit is finally priced in. This society is just a dog chasing its own tail, blowing smoke up each others' asses non-stop...

    Ponzi confidence is maxed out in stocks, oil, crypto currencies, short volatility, personal consumption and everywhere else casino capital can be thrown down the shit hole. Armed with the knowledge that it's the "best start to a year since 1987", and personal savings are the lowest since the start of the last recession, we can say with certainty the dedicated denialists won't see it coming. This will be the hardest crash landing...

  9. I understand where Dredd's coming from - we don't know what's happened to the temps of the water that's 2001+ meters deep. On the other hand, everywhere we HAVE looked, the water is heating up. And a whole lot of heat is being absorbed by the oceans, so it's at least probable that the water is heating up in the depths too. And actually, since the depths are where the threat really exists, it'd be best if we were only going to look at half the ocean then it should be the depths. But then we don't have unlimited resources and it's easier to monitor the top two kilometers of the ocean, so there's the tradeoff.

    One thing is for sure though - in the past, there wasn't enough hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the ocean to induce cities to form committies to find out why. And prior to 2002, sea life off the Pacific Northwest wasn't dying and fleeing the depths. That's indicative of increased heat in the deep ocean, and a rising chemocline.

  12. Huh, those three spheres look like the weird sphere that fell out of the sky in Vietnam. I tried to find a picture of a 'SL-23 rocket', but I found nothing. A sphere seems like an odd shape for a fuel tank for a rocket. Lucky those things didn't hit a home or a person - they left some big divots in the ground.
