Event Update For 2019-05-02

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. Good morning Jonny, everyone, from here in gloomy, overcast, drizzly SE PA.

    Lots of multiple JJFH incidents in this day's report. How stupid are people in India that they don't get the DON'T BATHE IN THE RIVERS warning implicit in so many deaths there? i mean CAH-MAHN! Eight people in the same family today - jeez!

    Medical episodes is the next topic - what the complete FUCK is going on when so many people suffer from this - all ages, both genders - while driving, sleeping, fishing, swimming, jogging, walking, sitting on a park bench, it matters not what you're doing, ya just suddenly, for no apparent reason DROP DEAD!? Crickets from the press, the authorities, the CDC, the EPA, NOBODY is talking about it EXCEPT JONNY! He's got it right - we're toast in short order.

    Not much going on in the news today so far - Kevin Sandbloom is away doing music, Margo has been down for 2 days as a result of "internet problems" and besides weather and war, there's really nothing to talk about. Nothing new from secureteam or MrMBB333 either. Is everyone on vacation?

    Severe storms and widespread flooding claim 7 lives, cause major damage, U.S.

    At least three people have been killed after major flooding hit U.S. Midwest late this week, bringing the death toll to at least 7 since Monday, April 29, 2019. Widespread flooding is affecting the country from Michigan to the South and is expected to continue in the days ahead.

    The Mississippi River has been at a major flood stage for 42 days and will continue at this stage this weekend. Yet another rise is expected next week as new storms hit the region.[more]

    Extensive damage in Puri after Tropical Cyclone "Fani" slams into India

    Tropical Cyclone "Fani" made landfall close to the city of Puri, Odisha between 02:30 - 04:30 UTC (08:00 - 10:00 LT) on Friday, May 3, 2019 as Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm with winds between 180 - 190 km/h (112 - 118 mph) and gusts to 200 km/h (124 mph). This made it a Category 3 hurricane equivalent on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. [more; crane collapse and other videos]

    [waking up to "global dimming]
    Reducing air pollution may worsen droughts globally – “It’s mind boggling. There is a really clear signal of the effects of human greenhouse gases on the hydroclimate.”

    Research has already found that air pollution has likely moderated the level of global warming (see “We’re about to kill a massive, accidental experiment in reducing global warming”). The newest findings suggest this could have played a role in reducing droughts as well, likely by decreasing the level of soil-moisture drying that would have otherwise occurred.

    If so, as the world continues to clean up air pollution, the impact of climate change on droughts will get even more severe. [more]

    A Florida teacher’s list of “Things I did not sign up for” inspired him to leave his once-beloved profession.

    teachers across the country have been striking against overcrowded classrooms and low wages

    “I think of all the things I did not sign up micromanaging administrators, mental health counseling, blueprints with no freedom or flexibility( even though you can not enforce planning), not being considered an expert in my chosen field even though I have a graduate degree. Students overdosing on drugs and collapsing in my classroom when they get back from the bathroom. Active shooter drills. Teachers being armed. Knowing where it is safe to hide in my classroom. Feeding and clothing my students. Buying my own supplies. Being told I should be thankful I have a job and to get over myself. I am tired of the constant testing...tired of everyone else knowing better and being chastised if I dare ask questions or challenge leadership. So this May, I am walking away...” [more]

  4. A storm recap from last night here in the Austin area.... Lake Travis is one hundred percent full and water is flowing into the flood pool for the first time since our floods this past Oct. Everyone around here got at least four inches of rain last night with quite a few areas getting ten. There are a handful of flood emergencies right now along creeks and rivers. Some homes are expected to be impacted.

    Lake Travis is the largest of what is called the Highland Lakes in the Hill Country west of Austin. It is a chain of lakes created by damming up the Colorado River. There are six total and every one of them is full. I see that our next big rain event is forecast to happen on..........Monday! Yaaaaay! So we got two days for some draining. Due to the ongoing El Nino I expect some catastrophic flooding in central Texas in May and June. We seem to get big floods on Memorial Day. I'm betting it will happen this year too.

    1. The first report I read on the rain totals was incorrect. Everyone in and immediately around the city got anywhere from an inch and a half to almost eight inches last night.

    EPA 'in bed' with Monsanto? Regulator ignores risks, affirms 'safety' of Roundup and Dow pesticide

    The US Environmental Protection Agency has insisted Monsanto's controversial glyphosate weedkiller Roundup is safe, despite court verdicts ruling it a carcinogen and studies backing them up. Is Monsanto pulling its strings?

    "The EPA has been subject to regulatory capture. The relationship between the regulator - the EPA - and the regulated - Monsanto - is too close," attorney Michael Baum told RT. Referring to the "Monsanto papers," documents released in the court cases against the company, Baum didn't mince words: "The documents show that the EPA is protecting Monsanto, not protecting the public."

    With three more tornadoes confirmed Friday from an April 18 outbreak, the National Weather Service now says 43 tornadoes hit Mississippi that day, and 75 for the year.
