Event Update For 2019-01-12

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.

  1. Right there, Jonny - the probability that 2 people IN THE SAME JAIL AT THE SAME TIME would suffer from a deadly JJFH event are astronomically small, then add in a 3rd person sickening at the same place, and it could reasonably said that it's IMPOSSIBLE for this to happen RANDOMLY. There MUST have been a common cause. The only thing that comes to mind is something in the ATMOSPHERE, wafting around there.

    Magma Under The Yellowstone Supervolcano Is “Rising”, And Scientists Warn That An Eruption Would Devastate The Entire Planet

    Could it be possible that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano is not too far away? All over the world seismic activity has been increasing in recent years, and this process seems to have accelerated during the early days of 2019. In particular, quite a few once dormant volcanoes are springing to life again, and this has many concerned about what could potentially happen at Yellowstone. Of course Yellowstone has never been “dormant”, but there have been new signs of life over the past six months. Entirely new geysers have sprung out of the ground, Steamboat Geyser has been the most active that it has been in decades, and some geysers have even been shooting “debris and rocks” into the sky. And now we are being told that “a 465-mile-long piece of molten rock” is “rising” directly under Yellowstone [more]

    PG&E, US’ Largest Energy Utility Firm, to File for Bankruptcy as Potential Liabilities From California Wildfires Reaches Billions

    U.S. utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) disclosed on Monday that it will file for bankruptcy. US’ largest energy utility firm with a market cap of $13+ billion said that the decision was forced by the wildfires which destroyed lives and property in California in 2017 and 2018.

    Per a BBC report, the utility firm faces liabilities that could reach $30 billion. Already, investigators have concluded that the firm’s equipment caused a minimum of 17 major wildfires in 2017.

    This includes California’s deadliest fire on record which killed 86 people and destroyed around 14,000 homes. If PG&E’s equipment is found to have caused this fire, it could face significant liabilities far exceeding its insured amount. [more]

  4. Americans’ health at risk as shutdown slashes EPA – “It’s a nightmare”

    The US government shutdown has stymied environmental testing and inspections, prompting warnings that Americans’ health is being put at increasing risk as the shutdown drags on.

    More than 13,000 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not at work, with just 794 people deemed essential staff currently undertaking the agency’s duties.

    The remaining skeleton staff are able to “respond to emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property”, according to an EPA planning document. But many routine activities such as checks on regulated businesses, clean-ups of toxic superfund sites and the pursuit of criminal polluters have been paused since 28 December.

    “State programs aren’t being funded, enforcement actions have stopped – it’s a nightmare,” said Gary Morton, president of AFGE Council 238, which represents about 9,000 EPA workers.[more]

    The mysterious life (and death) of Africa’s oldest trees

    In June 2018, a study was published by the scientific journal Nature Plants; it stated simply that the baobabs are dying. The scientists involved do not know why, but they suspect increased drought and climate change. For decades, villagers in Botswana have witnessed the depletion of baobabs because of human encroachment—cattle grazing and farmland have taken over areas once roamed by hunter-gatherers. The introduction of agriculture and changes to the soil have produced a negative effect on the trees. [more]
