Event Update For 2019-05-29

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.

2019-05-29 - Man, 47, and dog drop dead in home, woman, 73, found unconscious, in Lake Orion (Michigan):

Quote: "That's when the officer looked inside the house and saw a 47-year-old man dead by the back door. He called police and they came and got inside the home, where the man's 73-year-old mother was also found unconscious on the floor but still breathing. The family's dog was also found dead. Hazmat crews were called out but found no sign of carbon monoxide or other toxic gasses. The victims also showed no signs of trauma, and the front and rear doors were locked from the inside. 'We have no evidence to indicate anything foul play or anything other then what may have occurred inside that home,' said Narsh."

Quote: "The woman is in the hospital still in critical but stable condition and is unable to speak with investigators."

Note: If hydrogen sulfide got into the home via open windows or an AC unit and killed the man and dog and knocked the woman unconscious, then A) it wouldn't still be detectable in the air when responders found them; B) they won't find it in their bodies because it's reacted away within hours and they'd been in this state for days; and C) she may not have any memory of what happened. If she ever regains consciousness, I bet she doesn't know that her son and dog are dead. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

  1. Another splendid display of the impact of H2S/CH4 wafting through the atmosphere in increasing quantities, Jonny. Good work documenting all this stuff!

    i can't believe after YEARS of "medical emergencies" being suggested as a cause for people falling into the water from fishing boats, piers, ferries and cruise ships, and all manner of people dying or passing out while driving, that NOBODY has done a story in the mainstream media about this. Seems to me it would be a serious concern. Maybe, since no one can DO anything about it, the news people have been instructed (by their CIA overlords) to stay away from the topic.

    Well, it's just getting worse every day, politically, economically, socially, health-wise, environmentally and with respect to feedback loops (to mention a few areas).

    Tornado that obliterated Linwood, Kansas, was mile-wide EF4 twister with top winds of 170 mph

    A tornado onslaught continued to rattle the central United States on Tuesday, making it the 12th consecutive day at least eight tornadoes had been reported across the country.

    The most recent outbreak came in Kansas, where a massive tornado was confirmed Tuesday evening near Lawrence. The monstrous twister eventually tracked across the northeastern part of the state, pummeling several communities and prompting tornado emergencies in Kansas City and surrounding areas.

    At least a dozen homes were damaged or destroyed in Linwood, Kansas, according to the Kansas City Star. At least 18 injuries were reported in Douglas County, emergency management officials said. Three of those were said to be serious. [more]

    [update 2]
    This Mexico tariff news is far worse than even the initial market reaction makes it out to be. The timing is almost immediate. Chaos for both companies and bureaucrats. No time for anyone to prepare or make contingencies. The only way the S&P 500 doesn't sink massively today is if Trump rows back on this. The U.S. imported almost $350b worth of goods from Mexico in 2018.

    What makes it even worse again, if possible, is that so many traders were hoping Trump would soon take a more conciliatory trade zone because U.S. stocks have weakened.

    This is a black swan event for markets and people aren't even registering. Maybe traders are all hoping there's some mistake or that this won't be implemented. [more]

    Heavy rainfall is expected to continue in the northern region and the central province of Thanh Hoa over the weekend, the National Hydro-Meteorological Forecast Centre has warned.

    The centre has warned of possible whirlwinds, lightning and hailstorms in northern localities, and flash floods and landslides in the mountainous provinces of Lai Chau, Lao Cai, Yen Bai and Ha Giang.

    Landslides damaged more than 30 houses and thousands of hectares of agricultural land and fishing farms; hundreds of livestock were killed by the flood.

    The downpour also destroyed more than a hundred hectares of vegetables across the province. [more]
