Event Update For 2018-08-02

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.

2018-08-02 - Warming oceans threaten fish worldwide as oceans lose oxygen and hydrogen-sulfide-producing bacteria thrive:

Quote: "It is widely accepted that an increase in CO2 leads to warming, which then results in less oxygen in our oceans. Less oxygen allows sulfate-eating bacteria to thrive, which produces hydrogen sulfide — a broad-spectrum toxin which is lethal in small concentrations."

Note: Yeah, that threatens more than just fish. The oceans will start belching methane and hydrogen sulfide into the atmosphere and that will wipe out life on land too, exactly as has happened before in Earth's past. In fact, the ocean just belched up some gases the other day off the coast of Oceanside (California), mentioned in the 2018-07-31 update. That wasn't the first 'ocean outgassing event' either, nor even the first one this year. Such events are almost certainly why multiple cities on the coast in California have formed investigatory committees to determine why their cities are being mysteriously hit by hydrogen sulfide. Once this process escalates enough, that will be the end of the human race on this planet. Also, since methane and hydrogen sulfide are both highly flammable, they will cause abnormal fire behavior as they blow in off the coast and adsorb onto and into matter, and then who knows what kind of incredible and destructive fire behavior we might start seeing...

2018-08-02 - Unprecedented EF3-equivalent firenado is what killed three people in the wildfire near Redding in California:

Quote: "'The tornado was hovering over the house,' Amanda Woodley, Bledsoe's granddaughter, told CNN. 'It was just a tornado fire over the house.'"

Quote: "It was the most intense tornado in California history. But unlike most tornadoes, this vortex had a swirl of flames that reached an unprecedented 143 mph as it barreled toward Redding and scraped the bark off trees, uprooted trunks and incinerated homes, the National Weather Service announced Thursday."

Quote: "Trees appeared to be levitating, and branches and sheet-metal roofs seemed to orbit the column, Moore said. Uprooted objects launched into the air ignited mid-flight. Vegetation and homes hundreds of feet from the column also caught fire before the twister arrived, he said. It was as loud as a roaring jet engine."

Note: Hard to get more apocalyptic than firenadoes rampaging around that are the equivalent of powerful tornadoes!

But the problem is the pile is 60 feet underground, so Bella Vista fire cannot put it out."

'It's quite scary,' Gunhild Ninis Rosqvist, a Stockholm University geography professor who has been measuring the glacier for many years as part of climate change research, told AFP."

    Americans are living in a world of lies

    The US government and the presstitutes that serve it continue to lie to us about everything. Today the Bureau of Labor Statistics told us that the unemployment rate was 3.9%. How can this be when the BLS also reports that the labor force participation rate has declined for a decade throughout the length of the alleged economic recovery and there is no upward pressure on wages from full employment.

    Full employment with no wage pressure and no rise in the labor force participation rate is impossible. [more]
