Event Update For 2018-04-26

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.

  1. A new day, ya get up and try again.

    Good morning all. Nice around here today, but we're due to get cold yet again for the end of April (only below average, not freezing) with rain. Next week we hit the 80's. Flowers are blooming, trees popping buds and young leaves.

    It's been a busy month for garbage truck and Hull incidents.

    [Let's check out the sun]

    SWPC: Solar Cycle 24 declining more quickly than forecast

    Current solar cycle 24 is declining more quickly than forecast, NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) reports.

    The smoothed, predicted sunspot number for April to May 2018 is about 15. However, the actual monthly values have been lower, they say.

    Will solar minimum be longer than usual or might solar cycle 25 begin earlier? Leading solar and space science experts will convene a meeting in the coming years and attempt to predict solar cycle 25.

    [older report]
    The weak solar cycle and its consequences

    The most prominent feature of this graph is the c. 11 year solar magnetic cycle which is associated with the natural waxing and waning of solar activity. On longer time scales, the Sun has shown considerable variability, including the long Maunder Minimum when almost no sunspots were observed, the less severe Dalton Minimum, and increased sunspot activity during the last fifty years, known as the Modern Maximum.

    [another old report]
    Solar activity to fall by 60% during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 17th century ‘mini ice age’

    A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60% during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the ‘mini ice age’ that began in 1645. [more]

    [well, we won't have to worry about that]

  2. Our wonderful living breathing planet: 2018 extremely busy volatile year for major quakes and volcano activity up to April 10th when it all stops

    24 days ago another major quake hit Papua New Guinea incredibly it was the 13th of this year to hit the volatile country in the South Pacific.

    That major quake was the 25th major quake of a very busy year along the Pacific Ring Of Fire, however, since then the major quake count has dropped off the cliff, not just around the Pacific Ring Of Fire but the whole planet.

    Since then a mag 6.2 - 54km SW of Ovalle, Chile was the 35th and last major quake of 2018 to hit our planet which was 21 days ago.

    Up to the 10th of April, our planet averaged a major quake just over every 2 days with the Ring Of Fire witnessing a major quake every 4 days, since then nothing, it's as if someone turned the switch off.

    Most atolls will be uninhabitable by the mid-21st century because of sea-level rise exacerbating wave-driven flooding

    This is a very big development. The Su-35S nickname is "the Slayer" and the ability of this aircraft versus American F-22 Raptors and even F-35's is terrifyingly effective. The Su-35S can shoot down both the F-22 and the F-35. [more]

    [found it here]

    Dark Journalist is slowly and carefully weaving many strange threads together with his outstanding X-Series. I usually post this sort of material on the Cryptogon Backchannel, but I’m posting this to the main page because Pine Gap is a standard Cryptogon topic, in terms of the surveillance and communications aspects of the facility that we’re all aware of.

    I think there’s more to the place than that.

    I’ve had a very weird feeling about Pine Gap since I first started researching the ECHELON system back in the early 1990s. Look into Pine Gap, even a little, and you’re going to encounter the woowoo. Is it PSYOP to distract from the communications mission? Or, is something genuinely weird happening there? [more]

    Can Puerto Rico Recover From Maria Before the Next Storm Hits?

    Puerto Rico still doesn’t know how many people died from Hurricane Maria. The official death toll of people drowned in floods, killed by landslides, caught in collapsed houses, or who perished from environmental or health problems in the immediate aftermath of the storm seven months ago sits at 64. By just about all accounts, that is an undercount by at least an order of magnitude. A New York Times review of daily mortality rates found just over 1,000 more people died during and after the storm than expected. Additional analyses suggests similar figures. Governor Ricardo Rosselló is expected to release a full review of the island’s death toll next month. [more]

    "the enemy" is succeeding in disrupting or systematically disabling the US systems in Syria making it impossible for the Pentagon to survey the combat zone. During the tripartite attack of 14 April, the Russian army succeeded in hacking the GPS transmissions with the effect that some missiles were diverted. Worse still, the systems for friend/enemy recognition have stopped working. In these conditions, using planes for surveillance was not only a waste of time but also dangerous. [more]
