Event Update For 2018-06-21

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. I really like when you "connect the dots" of these various events so that one can imagine a giant Ch4/H2S gas cloud blowing across a wide swath of land (or many smaller ones, more likely). The Google maps link is a great aid to visualizing what may have happened, too (like at the camp, as I expected).

    Another cool thing is the links between different JJFH events close by each other in either time or geography (or both).

    What I came to realize after my incident (years ago at the Jersey shore, then again driving last year) is that it only takes ONE BREATH and you could be knocked out and/or incapacitated. Nyaaaah!

    Ok, let's see what's going on so far today.

    Thousands of whiskey barrels crash in collapse

    A bourbon distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky saw 9,000 barrels of still-aging drink come crashing down when a building collapsed Friday morning, according to CBS Lexington affiliate WKYT.

    Officials said no one was harmed at Barton 1792 when the rickhouse, a storage structure for aging bourbon, suffered partial structural failure. The matter could have been worse, as the building housed roughly 20,000 barrels total. An EPA team is investigating potential spillage of the bourbon into a nearby creek. [more; pics]

    Missing soldier found dead after intense manhunt, police say

    A soldier who disappeared earlier this week from a Florida National Guard base has been found dead, the Clay County Sheriff's Office said Friday. The sheriff's office said in a Facebook post that Specialist Cayln McLemore's death is now being investigated as an "undetermined death investigation."

    McLemore was found in a wooded area of Camp Blanding, police said. McLemor of the Alabama Army Reserve was participating in a land navigation assignment on Wednesday at 11 a.m., but did not return, CBS Gainesville affiliate WGFL reports. [more]

    California utility expects to pay $2.5 billion for wildfires

    A Northern California utility said Thursday that it expects to pay at least $2.5 billion in connection with deadly wildfires that whipped through wine country last October — some of them ignited by its fallen power lines.

    Pacific Gas & Electric Co. also warned that its liability could be considerably higher after state fire officials determine the cause of 21 major fires that devastated the region last year. They killed 44 people, destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, and wiped out vineyards, marijuana farms and other agricultural operations.

    The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has determined the cause of 14 fires and found the utility's downed power lines started several. [more]

    The Natural Gas Industry Has a Leak Problem

    The American oil and gas industry is leaking more methane than the government thinks — much more, a new study says. Since methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, that is bad news for climate change.

    The new study, published Thursday in the journal Science, puts the rate of methane emissions from domestic oil and gas operations at 2.3 percent of total production per year, which is 60 percent higher than the current estimate from the Environmental Protection Agency. That might seem like a small fraction of the total, but it represents an estimated 13 million metric tons lost each year, or enough natural gas to fuel 10 million homes.

  3. New fires in Northern Oregon keep firefighters busy

    At least three new wildfires grew quickly Thursday in Northern Oregon after hundreds of lightning strikes pounded the area Wednesday. The largest blaze is the Boxcar Fire just south of Maupin which is burning on both sides of Highway 197. Officials estimate Friday morning that it has burned 7,000 acres, but satellite imagery from 3:06 a.m. PDT on Friday, indicates, very, very unofficially, it has exceeded that by several thousand acres.

    Just Over The U.S. Border, A Once Mighty Nation Is In The Process Of A Complete And Total Societal Meltdown

    What would the United States look like right now if 113 political figures had been gunned down since last September? Well, that is precisely what has happened in Mexico. Once upon a time, Mexico had a thriving economy and a very stable government, but now the nation is devolving into a Mad Max society in which the drug cartels gun down any politicians that they do not like. As you will see below, the murder rate has surged to the highest level ever recorded, and no end to the violence is in sight. [more]

    Mexico’s Next President Boldly Declares That Immigration To The United States Is A “Human Right”

    Andrés Manuel López Obrador (otherwise known as “AMLO”) is about to become the next president of Mexico. He has a seemingly insurmountable lead in the polls, and at this point it would be a complete and utter shock if anyone else were to win on July 1st. So what he has to say is likely to become the official policy of the Mexican government in the very near future, and that is quite frightening because he is a crazed radical leftist and an extremely bold proponent of illegal immigration to the United States.

    After controversy, U.S. releases report showing elevated health risks from nonstick chemicals

    President Donald Trump’s administration has released a politically charged toxicology report about nonstick chemicals showing they can endanger human health at significantly lower levels than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has previously called safe.

    The draft report from the Department of Health and Human Services' Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is a toxicological profile of four types of stain- and water-resistant chemicals.

    It finds that so-called "minimum risk levels" for the toxins should be seven to 10 times lower than standards set by EPA in 2016. [more]

  4. Yeah, you were right on the money with your suspicion that that camp was near some body of water - right on the edge of a lake, not to mention the zillion other lakes in that area. Makes ya wonder just how many of those 33 kids and 3 adults had been swimming in the water that day - all of them? And how many of the people who DIDN'T get sick had NOT been swimming in the water - all of them?

  5. Yeah! Notice there's never any real investigation that leads to widespread sharing of important, possibly life-saving information (because it would likely impact the revenue streams of many).

    Here's a blast from the past that, like climate change, went into oblivion (probably for the same reason).
    Inside The Deep State: "If Only We'd Listened To Ike"

    Long before the term 'Deep State' became popular, the term "Military Industrial Complex" was coined by President Dwight Eisenhower.

    His warning though proven correct, was sadly not heeded.

    Since Eisenhower's time several other over "Industrial Complexes" have followed the MIC example and taken control of our government to suit their needs as well. Their objective is to buy out politicians in order to control the purse strings of Congress and they have been highly successful.

    The list of these ÏC industries includes, but is not limited to the companies below:

    1. The Drug Industrial Complex. (DIC)
    [Big Pharma]

    2. Real Estate Industrial Complex. (RIC)
    [I think this is a subset of the Big Banking cartel]

    3. College Industrial Complex (CIC)

    4. Health Insurance Industrial Complex (HIC) [all because some want to profit off of others' illnesses - no single payer like in most other countries]
