Event Update For 2019-04-25

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.

2019-04-25 - Unknown rotten egg odor evacuates school in Haverhill (Massachusetts):

Quote: "A middle school in Haverhill was evacuated Thursday morning after a staff member reported a strong smell that could have been natural gas, the mayor’s office confirmed to Boston 25 News."

Quote: "About an hour later, Haverhill Fire Department ruled out a natural gas leak, but waited for a National Grid crew to arrive and give official confirmation. The odor is suspected to be sulfur from an issue with a city sewage system located outside of the school’s property."

Note: Rotten egg odor, not natural gas, possibly came from a sewer - almost certainly hydrogen sulfide...

  1. Spectacular(ly scary) report again today, Jonny! HUGE lede of Spotlight Stories followed by a list of stories, some of which indicate people are waking up to the unbelievable number of car fires and recycling center problems (including scrap metal fires and people dropping dead). A four-pack of multiple person deaths, a bunch of deaths in low-lying areas, more infrastructure failure, and lots of unusual accidents. Damn - things aren't gettin' any better, and i expect they'll worsen significantly in the coming months.

    i saw that truck crash in CO, but didn't see anything pointing to JJFH, except for a conjecture (yet to be investigated) about brake failure. i suspect you're right to include it. Either the driver had a medical event or the brakes failed - both of which are covered under your hypothesis.

    Why didn't the GOAT die or pass out in the well?

    UPDATE 1-U.S. oil drillers make biggest rig cuts in over 3 months- Baker Hughes

    U.S. oil drillers this week cut the most rigs in over three months and reduced the number of oil rigs operating for a second week in a row and for the fifth straight month, as independent producers follow through on plans to cut spending on new drilling and completions.

    Major oil companies, like Exxon Mobil Corp and Chevron Corp, however, are boosting their presence, particularly in the Permian, the largest U.S. shale oil field.

    Both U.S. oil majors on Friday reported lower profits despite increased production due largely to weakness in their refining operations and lower crude oil and natural gas prices. [more]
