Event Update For 2019-02-28

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.

2019-02-28 - Dozens of birds drop dead in Huntsville (Alabama):

Quote: "It's a sight a person would never expect to see: dozens of dead birds littering the road. But that's exactly what a Huntsville man found Tuesday. He counted more than 60 dead birds on Moores Mill Road near the Ware intersection. He is very concerned, since he believes they died in the same spot at the same time. It seems like a plotline straight out of a Hitchcock movie ... dozens of birds falling from the sky."

Quote: "'I don't know if it's a release of some type of possible gas. I don't know if there's a pocket somewhere where they were flying and they were all exposed to something that caused them to crash and burn,' he questioned."

Quote: "WHNT News 19 reached out to Dr. Geoff Hill, a professor in biological sciences and a curator of birds at Auburn University. 'Have you seen what looks like dozens of birds die in the same spot at the same time,' Kelley Smith asked. 'No, I've never seen that,' Dr. Hill responded. He can only guess what happened since he wasn't able to go to Moores Mill Road. 'It has to be something really traumatic that instant death for a vertebrate animal and so you're guessing some kind of poison, a really bad poison that would act really fast and kill the animals or like a lightning strike or something,' he said. 'It's worrisome. Anything that would kill that many birds that fast would certainly be a health concern.'"

Note: People were sickened by unknown foul odors on two passenger planes over the past two days too. Birds will occasionally fly through a pocked of invisible hydrogen sulfide, just as planes are also increasingly flying through pockets of gas. And what would sicken a human being will knock a bird dead, or a flock of birds. Birds are very vulnerable to gases due to their rapid respiration and low body mass, which is why they used to use canaries in coal mines. Birds dropping dead from the sky en mass has been happening sporadically around the world in recent years. The first big incident of birds dropping dead en masse that I know of off-hand was right after New Years Eve in 2010-2011. The authorities blamed fireworks for that one. They were probably half right. The fireworks scared the birds, who took flight...then flew into a pocket of poison gas and dropped dead from the sky.

Two days after the Beebe incident in Arkansas, in the wee hours, here in St. Louis, MO, I smelled something unusual and a flock of birds dropped dead from the sky right across the street from me, thud-thud-thudding onto the roof of my neighbor's garage as their bodies landed. That event never even made the news, probably because I called 911 and an hour later a street sweeper crew came by and cleaned up all the carcasses so that by the time the sun came up, all looked normal, as if nothing had happened. Think about that, think about what that means. What it means is that the 911 system is being used to hide what's happening, or at least that 911 calls are being intercepted and the information is used by someone to hide what's happening. Whether the 911 receptionists are directly involved in that and know what's going on, I have no idea, but I doubt they know.

The authorities often give partial truths or half-truths. Another example of that was when a foul odor blew in off Santa Monica Bay and sickened people in Santa Monica, CA. They blamed that on a 'naturally occurring methane release' from the ocean. That might sound plausible except for one thing: methane is odorless. But both methane AND hydrogen sulfide are produced at the bottom of the oceans, and hydrogen sulfide DOES have a foul odor and WOULD sicken a bunch of people. So I don't doubt that there actually was a naturally occurring methane release. But it wasn't JUST a naturally occurring methane release, but a release of both methane AND hydrogen sulfide - that's the half-truth. It's easier to deceive people with half-truths than it is with outright lies. That's a psyops technique...

2019-02-28 - Earth's fish are disappearing because of climate change, study says:

2019-02-28 - Huge sunfish washes ashore dead in coastal Santa Barbara (California):

Quote: "A sunfish that lives south of the equator recently washed up on a Santa Barbara County beach, and scientists are at a loss as to how the giant creature got so off-course. The massive 7-foot-long and 7-foot-wide fish — a hoodwinker — was discovered Feb. 19 at Sands Beach in Goleta at UC Santa Barbara’s Coal Oil Point Reserve."

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Obviously there will be animals dying off, especially oceanic species, but other species will sicken and die too."

2019-02-28 - Passenger plane hit by smoke at airport in coastal Exeter (Britain):

  1. First off, the quote at the top is excellent, Jonny!

    Here we go with more birds dying off hard. The marine die-off is proceeding, but birds we don't always get to see. Sure there are cases like in Australia where thousands of bats died from the heat, but birds aren't always where we can see them, and it makes one wonder how many more of these incidents are going unreported for the simple reason that they occur far away from where people usually are (for example, deep in forested areas, high up on mountains or along rivers). We know from surveys that avian population is declining somewhat rapidly, but the blame has been on lack of food like earthworms, whose numbers are ALSO dropping dramatically.

    We got a light dusting of snow and some icy road conditions by this morning, and we're awaiting the next, larger (snow) storm and much colder temps [for "Spring Break"] on Sunday (into Monday).

    Gallup Finds Americans Have Been Very Deceived

    Gallup issued on February 28th its “2019 Rating World Leaders” report, subtitled “The U.S. vs. Germany, China and Russia,” and said that “The world still frowned on U.S. leadership more than the leadership of any other country asked about in 2018.” All four of the countries’ leaderships received approval-ratings from people worldwide in only the 30-39% range, and this low score for the U.S. leadership (which was approved by merely 31% of people sampled worldwide during 2018) represented an enormous decline for the United States, which during the Obama years had received scores ranging from 41% to 49% approval. However, a Gallup report which had been issued only three days earlier, on February 25th, indicated that the American people are blissfully ignorant of any of this reality, and instead believe that the global approval-rating of the United States itself is high and is rising, not, as it actually is, low and declining.

    Mad Science: The history of misguided attempts to geoengineer Earth

    Harvard's Gernot Wagner wants to save the world from global warming. His method? Develop a new type of plane that will fly more than 4,000 missions a year dumping particulates into the stratosphere.

    Wagner and his colleague Wake Smith call the proposed plane "SAI Lofter (SAIL)." Anonymous individuals at "Airbus, Atlas Air, Boeing, Bombardier, GE Engines, Gulfstream, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Near Space Corporation, Northrup Grumman, Rolls Royce Engines, Scaled Composites, The Spaceship Company, and Virgin Orbit" provided input.

    Estimates for SAIL's design and operation seem sophisticated but are fabricated. Wagner and Smith admit, "No existing aircraft design-even with extensive modifications-can reasonably fulfill [their] mission."

    Wagner and others believe that scientists can calculate how many particulates will be needed to cool the Earth to a desired temperature. [more; what a crock of SHIT!]
