Event Update For 2018-07-13

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.

2018-07-13 - Unknown rotten egg odor hits McDonald's in coastal Saint John (Canada):

Quote: "A rotten egg smell probably wasn't very welcome for everyone having breakfast at McDonald's in the North end this morning. Fire crews got the call to respond to a possible propane leak about 840 this morning. The restaurant was evacuated as a few agencies checked the air quality for any propane and came up with zero readings."

2018-07-13 - Unknown rotten egg odor hitting coastal Jarrow (Britain):

Quote: "For the last week a foul smell, described similar to that of ‘rotten eggs’ has lingered around the town. Health experts are looking into the problem but its cause remains unknown and fingers are being pointed to stagnant water in the River Don or Tyne, which has been warmed up in the recent heatwave."

2018-07-13 - Rotten egg smell and methane hit area outside home in coastal Whangarei (New Zealand), woman hospitalized:

Quote: "A couple still have no idea what led to the presence of what was thought to be methane gas around their house which put one of them in hospital with poisoning. The incident happened last Thursday afternoon on the corner of Mosston and Fox Rds in Whanganui. The husband didn't want to them to be identified but said his wife had been outside and when she came in told him she could smell gas. 'So I poked my head out the door and had a sniff and said to her it smelt like gas,' he said. 'Then she's walked down the driveway to shut the gate. When she got back in she said, "I feel dizzy, I don't feel very well". And that's when she laid on the couch and within five to 10 minutes she was having seizures from it.'"

Note: They 'smelled gas', which means rotten egg odor. But the authorities said it was methane. Maybe there was some methane there TOO, but methane definitely didn't cause the rotten egg odor, seeing as methane is odorless. And the woman had seizures. The rotten egg odor was almost certainly hydrogen sulfide, which is neurotoxic and can cause seizures, and maybe there was some methane present too. Both gases are produced in the same areas - sewage areas, swamps, anoxic areas in oceans, etc. Here's a Google Maps link of this area. Looks like a likely area to be hit by hydrogen sulfide and methane blowing in off the ocean, as do the two areas in the events listed above this one...

    Hail damage to croplands in South Dakota so immense it can be imaged from space

    The long lines of damage visible in these satellite images of South Dakota may look like a product of tornadoes. However, the width of the damage swath -well over 10 kilometers (6 miles) in many areas - is a clue that it was hail that pummeled these croplands. According to Jordan Bell, a research meteorologist with NASA's Short-term Prediction Research and Transition Center (SPoRT), tornado tracks rarely appear wider than a few kilometers.

    The storms that produced these hail swaths came in a one-two punch, according to a summary from the National Weather Service. The first arrived on June 27, 2018, charting a southeasterly path of destruction as it moved across Sully and Stanley counties, narrowly missing the city of Pierre, South Dakota. A second storm left an even longer swath, stretching from the Wyoming-South Dakota border for hundreds of miles before ending east of the Missouri River. Some areas reported hail larger than 4 inches (10 centimeters) in diameter, about the size of a grapefruit. The large hail-in conjunction with strong winds-stripped corn stalks bare and pummeled soybean leaves. [more]

    California Residents Suffer Mysterious Rash After Extreme Fire Conditions

    Burning branches or logs that contain even small concentrations of urushiol, the toxin in poison ivy, oak and sumac plants, can cause allergic reactions in some.

    "Poison oak can travel through the air, the allergens are so strong that they can create an allergic response, but everyone has a different sensitivity," Dermatologist Emmanuel Maverakis recently told CBS Sacramento.

    "Poison oak is highly immunogenic so someone with a very mild amount of exposure can get an eruption," he noted, adding that poison oak reactions show up 24 to 48 hours after exposure.

    However, no firefighting crew members have experienced any symptoms of allergic reactions, disputing the poison ivy theory.

    As always, arrogance the fatal weakness. Trade wars, oil wars, Fed policy error all at the same time...

    Another decade of corporate Shock Doctrine has blinded Wall Street and policy-makers to the risks of late cycle "policy error", which is taking place in real-time. The Fed's flattening yield curve is pounding the global economy, banks, commodities, and yield stocks all at the same time. Fortunately, Netflix is providing a final safe haven. Today's capitalist bailout queens are ignoring markets. That will be their undoing. [more]
