Event Update For 2018-07-12

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.

The conspiracy isn't that the government is out to kill everyone; the conspiracy is that the government is out to hide the fact that everyone's gonna die and the government can't do anything to prevent it. That's actually worse. An evil government could be stopped. The Earth can't be stopped...

  1. So yet another RV goes up in flames at 'Noclueyet,' Canada.

    The second story sounds like the start of a joke, "guy walks into a fire station with severe burns . ."

    The third story takes the cake - was the woman trying to smoke in the train's bathroom and inadvertently caused her (possibly H2S &/or CH4 adsorbed) clothing into flame?

    Further down, we see a truck hauling radioactive dirt - now where do they take it to dump it? No matter where it goes it's STILL RADIOACTIVE!! This was one of the arguments many of us used to counter all the "clean, safe, too cheap to meter" BULLSHIT that the industry spokespeople (were paid to) say. There's no safe place to store the waste long enough to become non-life threatening. Of course we lost that battle - money talks - so now all of life on earth is exposed to this crap.

    Lucky 'bastid' got to die in his garden. I spend a lot of time in mine and could only hope for a beautiful end like that - just bury me under the soil there. More likely i'll end up in a fiery crash somewhere.

    Exxon Quits Koch-Backed Business Group After Climate Change Row

    The oil giant won’t be renewing its membership after it expired in June, spokesman Scott Silvestri said by phone. Exxon had a public spat with ALEC in December when some members backed by climate skeptics such as the Heartland Institute moved to convince the federal government to drop its claim that climate change is a risk to human health.

    Exxon’s departure comes amid a corporate exodus by the likes of Ford Motor Co. and Expedia Group Inc. departed, largely in response to ALEC’s positions on climate rules, renewable energy and other issues.

    The animation illustrates the huge amount of melting taking place from underneath, due to an inflow of heat from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, and from warm water from rivers that end in the Arctic Ocean. Meanwhile, sea ice extent doesn't fall very much at all.

    When only looking at sea ice extent, the dramatic fall in sea ice volume may be overlooked. [more; so that's where SOTT goes]

    This is America

    In America they build flying war robots, but you can't drink the water. America is where the empire keeps its billionaires and bombs.

    Giant wars left Europe a mess many years ago, so America rose to the top. Now it's where many rich and powerful influencers centralize their operations. America is the cattle prod used to compel the world to march along with the interests of western aristocrats. Governments which comply are rewarded with military "protection", while noncompliant governments are sanctioned and bombed. The Mafia does this also. [more]

    It Could Really Happen! Republicans Are Preparing To Impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

    Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a perfect example of a deep state operative.

    So why are Republicans so upset with Rosenstein?

    For one thing, they feel like he has continually stonewalled their investigation into corruption at the FBI, and that is definitely a very serious matter.

    Secondly, Rosenstein is ultimately where “the buck stops” when it comes to the Mueller investigation.

    If Rosenstein were to be impeached, that would almost certainly mean the end of the Mueller investigation, and Democrats would go absolutely ballistic. [more]
