Event Update For 2019-03-20

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. Hello Jonny and everyone interested in following the trajectory of our demise here on JJFH.

    Lots of interesting news here. Over the past bunch of days we've seen more tanker ships burning than usual. i see that people in India STILL don't get the picture and continue to enter rivers and streams with the usual result - they die in multiple numbers! This has also been Bus Burn Week.

    i've been going on about food shortages for a while, but now it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in the U.S. as so many farms have been and will be destroyed as this extended flooding situation drags on for the foreseeable future. Prices are "skyrocketing" as our first headline proclaims.

    Government Warns Of Historic, Widespread Flooding “Through May” – Food Prices To Skyrocket As 1000s Of Farms Are Destroyed

    We have never seen catastrophic flooding like this, and the NOAA is now telling us that there will be more major flooding for at least two more months. On Thursday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that “historic, widespread flooding” would “continue through May”. More than 90 percent of the upper Midwest and Great Plains is currently covered by an average of 10.7 inches of snow, and all of that snow is starting to melt. That means that we are going to transition from one of the worst winters in modern history to a flood season that has already taken an apocalyptic turn for farmers all across America. At this moment, millions of acres of farmland are already underwater. Thousands of farmers are not going to be able to plant crops this year, and thousands of other farmers that have been financially ruined by the floods will never return to farming again. This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and it is going to get a whole lot worse. [more]

How this poorly understood insect manages to thrive in a harsh, sterile landscape when virtually nothing else can is a mystery. Prepare for the lava cricket invasion!

    The entomologists learned the crickets survive on bits of decaying plants that blow into the lava fields, and albumen proteins in sea foam. They remain on the lava fields only until plants begin to grow again.

    Where the crickets live between eruptions remains a mystery.
