Event Update For 2019-06-03


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.

2019-06-03 - Unusually strong start to northern hemisphere noctilucent clouds season:

Note: Noctilucent clouds are caused by water vapor in the upper atmosphere. More methane is accumulating in the atmosphere, especially in the upper northern hemisphere. Methane is a lighter-than-air gas which rises high in the atmosphere, and when it breaks down it forms CO2 and water vapor. So more methane entering the atmosphere results in more/stronger noctilucent clouds. From the Wiki article: "Recent studies suggests that increased atmospheric methane emissions produce additional water vapor once the methane molecules reach the mesosphere - creating, or reinforcing existing noctilucent clouds."

Notice that these clouds are all around the North Pole. Methane is literally exploding out of the ground and leaving mammoth craters in Siberia as the permafrost melts. There are lakes in northern Canada now bubbling ferociously with methane, and the permafrost is melting across northern Canada too as the planet continues to warm. And the methane clathrate deposits off the East Siberia Arctic Shelf are also now dissociating (melting) and releasing their stored methane into the atmosphere up near the North Pole. So it is not at all surprising that the rising amounts of methane entering the atmosphere in the far north are having a significant and noticeable effect on noctilucent clouds...

  1. Well it's here! The solar minimum! Ice age cometh. Just don't tell the folks around the world baking in recrd breaking heat. Might get there hopes up. I'll be thinking of the "quiet sun" this Sunday when it hits 101 here in central Texas.


  2. Wow, 101, yuck. It's 'only' gonna be 92 here today...brr!

    1. It's rainy and may not get above 90 here today. After a very hot weekend then on Tue we'll have a low in the 60s and a high of 89, give or take a degree.

      I think it will be a whiplash summer.

      Up in NY state it is downright winter. 30s at night and 50s during the day. Hambone is not a happy camper. Bwahahaha...

  3. Today's report makes JJFH much more plausible than any other explanation of odd/rare events (that have become commonplace).

    Three separate incidents in the same town (Oceanside, CA), two events in Brainerd, two in Kuwait City, the car at Walmart in NC, the 20 luxury vehicles in Nairobi, and all the people being pulled dead or unconscious from water (or being near it), not to mention the on-going medical emergencies causing all manner of vehicle accidents and all the people having those same issues in planes or on ships. i mean CAH-MAHN, it's virtually impossible for anything this pervasive to be COINCIDENCE! The simplest, most basic underlying and compelling answer to all these is ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION (pervading the water on the planet), and SPECIFICALLY CH4/H2S.

    Latest Weather Forecast

    After two lovely days, temperatures will warm, humidity will rise and the threat of severe weather will return Wednesday.

    A First Alert has been issued for Wednesday evening from 7pm to Thursday early morning at 3am. During this time frame, Delaware, South Jersey, the Jersey Shore, Philadelphia and the PA Suburbs have the potential to see scattered strong to severe thunderstorms. Although the NBC10 First Alert weather team does not expected the storms to be quite as damaging and widespread as the storms we saw last week, there's still a chance for pockets of damaging winds, heavy rain, or hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, but doesn't look likely.

    Wednesday the temperatures take a jump up, with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Humidity climbs to the muggy range again, too.

    Thursday will also see mid 80s and humid conditions. Some lingering showers are possible, but severe storms are not likely.

    Friday the region dries out, and temperatures hang in the low 80s through the weekend. [see map]

    Intravenous vitamin C is a cancer killer and the FDA wants it banned

    Vitamin C has a broad spectrum antioxidant function with the ability to protect cell structures and DNA from free radical damage. Vitamin C is remarkably safe even in enormously high doses. Compared to commonly used prescription drugs, side effects are virtually nonexistent. No matter how high the concentration, vitamin C does not harm healthy cells. Yet, through an array of enzymatic and metabolic reactions, vitamin C has an impressive ability to protect and treat and wide range of diseases, including cancer. When something is this effective at treating disease, the FDA will stop at nothing to prevent public access. [more]

    Millions of people are sitting in jail for using Cannabis raw, but it’s ‘perfectly fine’ to use the plant if the Government and their corporate owners take most of the medicine out of it, then get to charge you an arm and a leg for it. Why is that? I shall explain. [more]

When they want to stage a coup in Venezuela, they don’t limit it to CIA covert ops and behind-the-scenes manipulations; the whole administration is on Twitter saying they’re going to keep starving everyone with sanctions until the nation’s president is replaced with the guy they prefer.

    His whole cabinet is basically human versions of the departments they represent. His Secretary Treasurer was a Goldman Sachs executive. His CIA Director literally tortured people. His National Security Advisor is an Iraq-raping Bush-era neocon. His Secretary of Commerce is a former Rothschild executive. His EPA Administrator is a former coal lobbyist. His Secretary of State came straight out of the CIA. It’s like he designed a convenient labeling system for everyone who’s unsure of what it is that each department in the executive branch of the US government actually does.

    Trump has been continuing and expanding all of the depravities of his predecessors, but he’s been doing so openly, making it look exactly as ugly and disgusting as it is. His supporters try to justify this by claiming he’s making brilliant 4-D chess maneuvers against the Deep State, but Trump isn’t playing chess. He isn’t even playing checkers. He’s playing Uno, and he’s playing it with his hand fully exposed on the table, with his only defense being to point at a red card and say “This one’s green” and point at an eight and say “That’s a two. It’s the best two, absolutely terrific two.”

    Even his dishonesty is honesty, in a way. He lies constantly, brazenly and unapologetically, while his predecessors have lied sneakily, subtly and usually only by distortions, omissions and half-truths. Trump is a walking public service announcement that US presidents are liars. Which is the truth.

    Goodbye Middle Class: The Percentage Of Wealth Owned By The Top 10% Just Got Even BIGGER

    The middle class in America is being systematically eviscerated, and it is getting worse with each passing year. As you will see below, one new study has found that 10 percent of Americans now own 70 percent of all the wealth. Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most vibrant middle class in the history of the world, but pretty soon we are just going to have the ultra-wealthy and everyone else. Our system has been designed to funnel as much wealth as possible to the very top of the financial pyramid, and that means that most of the rest of us are deeply struggling. And when you are just barely getting by from month to month, all it takes is one bad break to knock you completely out of the middle class and into poverty. [more]
