Event Update For 2019-03-16

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.

2019-03-16 - Climate strike by kids a source of hope, but new research shows it may be too late:

Quote: "The end of the world is no longer a fanciful hypothesis. It is the most plausible scenario. In the last week, the UN Environment assembly announced its finding that, even if the Paris Agreement targets were met, global temperatures would rise by three to five degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels."

Note: It IS too late. It was too late in 2002 when sea life began fleeing the depths off the Pacific Northwest. It was probably too late when 'dead zones' began spreading across the oceans and the phytoplankton started dying off, in the 1970s. It is most definitely WAY too late now. And again, people edge closer to what I've been saying all along, despite the fact that they don't even really understand the scope of the various problems we face. In particular, they're not paying any attention to the mysterious 'rotten egg' odor events that have been spreading across the planet or the rising number and intensity of fires that have begun destroying the surface of the planet. The kids who went on strike may believe consciously that there's yet time to 'fix the problem' if we'd just 'do something', but subconsciously they may already know - or at least suspect - that we're at the end of the world now and there's no stopping it...

2019-03-16 - The rapid decline of the natural world is a crisis even bigger than climate change:

Note: The rapid decline of the natural world is also related to climate change. The dying off of insects around the world should strike fear into the hearts of any thinking persons, seeing as insects dying off hard on a planetary scale is something only seen in the most severe of extinction events. The current extinction event is a repeat of the Permian-Triassic extinction event, the most severe of all extinction events, and insects did take some serious hits then, just as they are now...

2019-03-16 - Trump regulation rollbacks will result in more than 200 million tons of additional greenhouse emissions each year:

Note: As if the situation wasn't bad enough, Trump is working overtime to help corporations kill us all off as quickly as possible. I can see it now: corpses everywhere, everybody dead, but somewhere in a disintegrating home a TV will be running on solar power, and a guy on the TV on a prerecorded loop will be telling a MAGA-hat-wearing corpse being eaten by maggots in a recliner that hey, the stock market just hit a record high!

  1. Hey Jonny, great analysis at the top. By now, it's become patently obvious that it's the end of the line for habitat and humanity, due to our own greed. stupidity, neglect and pollution (among a long list of factors leading us to where we are now).

    i think the kids are going to find out "sooner than expected" and the results will lead to the collapse of education as we know it and lead to all kinds of knock-on effects. In other words, once it's fully realized by our young, this global-warming/human extinction consciousness will lead to all manner of erratic behaviors (suicide parties, mass quitting of school instruction, flash-mob and gang activity spike, and more). That's one of the reasons for all the distraction by electronic devises, censorship of many sites telling it like it is, and the crack-down on journalism by the powers that be.

    Life-threatening ‘giant surf’ tops 50 feet into Monday in Hawaii

    ‘Giant surf’ can cause damage and endanger anyone who attempts to enter the waters along the northern and western coasts of the Hawaiian Islands into Monday.

    West-facing locations of the western islands are also at risk.

    The most significant coastal flooding can be anticipated around and shortly after midnight, local time, early Monday morning, near when the highest astronomical tide cycle of the month will occur.

    The pounding seas can damage boats, docks and other weaker buildings in marinas and harbors, including the Haleiwa Harbor.

    Overwash may force officials to close some coastal roads for a time.

    While not to the severity of what is expected the next couple of days, another swell from the northwest may bring another period of rough surf to the island chain at midweek. [more]

    US detects the second largest METEOR EXPLOSION in 30 years, and the biggest since the fireball over Chelyabinsk in Russia six years ago

    A huge fireball exploded in the Earth’s atmosphere in December, according to Nasa.

But it went largely unnoticed until now because it blew up over the Bering Sea, off Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. [more]

At the same time, another powerful system might form near the coast of Western Australia and make landfall early next week. [more]

  3. 12 Huge bombshells in one week - but, "nothing's happening?"

    Twelve HUGE, damning bombshells dropped this week, spinning this storm into high gear. From the Lisa Page transcripts to McCain's connection to the dossier, a grand jury investigation into Facebook, massive NXIVM updates, Jeffrey Epstein back on the chopping block, and Andrew Weisman leaving special counsel. And, while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was preparing her audition for her role as a congresswoman for New York, Paul Ryan was sabotaging democrat subpoenas. Meanwhile, Hollywood's being sliced and diced for paying off colleges and Ivy League Schools to get their children admitted. Of course, this is only the beginning of investigations into nefarious actions taking place in the upper echelons of colleges, and it's safe to say, politicians will surely make the list.

    Who could forget the terrorist training camp discovered in New Mexico last year, where they had loads of guns and ammunition, along with a deceased child?

  6. Girl fights for life at hospital after hyena attack in Kenya

    Ripali Lenerpita sustained deep bites on her face, cheeks, jaw, neck, head and limbs following the Friday evening attack.

    The minor was in pain and could not hear and see clearly when she was brought to the hospital for specialized treatment. Her body was swollen.

    The hospital head of clinician services Joseph Keriyo said that though the girl was received while bandaged and dressed up, she was in a critical condition.

    She was provided with antibiotics and fluids to stabilize her condition on admission done on Friday at around 9pm.

    "The girl was received in a very critical condition and had facial injuries mostly on the cheeks and eye lids.

    Because of injuries on the eyes, she cannot see," said Keriyo.

    Lokor said the girl was together with her mother, who was too attacked while trying to rescue her from the wild animal.

    The mother sustained injuries on her stomach, head and limbs.

    Locals who heard the two cry for help rushed to the scene and hunted for the hyena and killed it.

    "The hyena was so wild, it wounded my wife while she was rescuing my daughter and further attacked a man who came for their rescue," said Lokor.

    According to locals, prolonged drought is forcing wild animals to stray into residential home, an issue they say, requires amicable solution. [more]
