Event Update For 2019-06-27

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.

2019-06-27 - RV trailer bursts into flame and explodes and kills woman in coastal Port Orange (Florida):

2019-06-27 - Nitric acid fire erupts in coastal Little Island (Ireland), 2100 feet from the coast:

Quote: "Emergency services in Cork are currently dealing with an acid spill and a fire in Little Island. Emergency services were called shortly after 5.30pm this evening to respond to a nitric acid incident and fire at Courtown Industrial Estate in Little Island."

Note: Nitric acid is a strong acid and dangerous to touch or breathe, but it has a flammability index of 0, like water, and by itself is not flammable and does not explode. From Wiki: "Flash point: Non-flammable". However, nitric acid is explosively flammable if it comes into contact with gaseous hydrogen sulfide. So if any nitric acid leaks at all and there's any hydrogen sulfide in the air or adsorbed onto materials with which the nitric acid comes into contact, then bad fires and/or explosions are going to result. Some barrels of nitric acid just went up in flames at 6:15 AM at a business in Simi Valley (California), mentioned in the 2019-06-25 update...

2019-06-27 - Manure bursts into flame and ignites 13,590-acre wildfire near the Ebro River in coastal Catalonia (Spain):

A Spanish military unit with 120 specialists joined local firefighters who had worked overnight to control the blaze that sent thick plumes of smoke over difficult, hilly terrain near the Ebro River. Miquel Buch, the regional interior minister, said 20,000 hectares were under threat in what is the worst fire in the Catalonia region in two decades. Buch said authorities suspect the cause of the outbreak was a deposit of improperly stored chicken manure at a farm in the village of Torre de l'Espanyol that high temperatures caused to combust."

    Rat feeding study suggests the Impossible Burger may not be safe to eat

    The Impossible Burger is a plant-based burger, the key ingredient of which is a protein called soy leghemoglobin, derived from genetically modified (GM) yeast.

    The results of a rat feeding study commissioned by Impossible Foods and carried out with soy leghemoglobin (SLH) suggest

    SLH is the substance that gives the burger its meaty taste and makes it appear to bleed like meat when cut. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initially refused to sign off on the safety of SLH when first approached by the company. The rat feeding study results suggest that the agency's concerns were justified. Rats fed the genetically modified (GM) yeast-derived SLH developed unexplained weight gain and changes in the blood that can indicate the onset of inflammation or kidney disease, as well as possible signs of anemia.

  3. As usual, Mike, I think they're wrong about geoengineering. Not about the fact that it's occurring - it is. They're wrong about wanting to stop it, because they don't understand the real purpose of it. The purpose of it is to maintain, as long as is possible, the status quo, such as it is, and defer for as long as possible what comes after the status quo undergoes a massive state change and becomes the all-out END OF THE WORLD.

    The 'elites', if there are such that are organized on any grand scale, have waaaay more to lose when the status quo goes south than any of us common people. They will lose easy access to food, to products on the market, to ease of travel, to relative security when they do travel, to cheap labor, to the ADVANTAGES of wealth disparity that accrue to those on top of the wealth pyramid. All of that, poof, gone, once the status quo changes.

    The question the people who want to stop geoengineering never ask is this: is geoengineering the problem or is it a tactic that's being used to hide/delay another far MORE serious problem? It IS a problem, but if they discontinue it, the end of the world will speed up dramatically in terms of storms, floods, droughts, hurricanes, sea level rise, heatwaves, crop loss, UV burn and random poisoning. However bad the geoengineering is - and I'm sure they're not spraying vitamins - it's not remotely as bad as what happens if they stop.

    1. Yes I agree. I do have a lot of respect for Joseph Farrell because he is so informed on many topics and has an interesting perspective. But he still does not believe in the human element in runaway catastrophic climate disruption. I just listened to his most recent video cast from Thursday. He thinks the geoengineering is causing all the upsets much like Wiggington. He thinks "their technology" makes storms stall out for long periods of time, for example. He doesn't understand that it's the fouled up jet stream that does this. And he doesn't understand why the jet stream is fouled up.

      He is a proponent of Elana Freeland, authoress of Under an Ionized Sky. I listened to a talk she gave last year promoting her book and it was indeed interesting. But she, to me anyway, goes off on these tangents like "Morgellon's Disease" caused by chemtrails. Maybe its real. I don't know. I then went to her website and saw that she believes in the "Luciferian conspiracy to form a globalist government". I guess as partial "proof" of this she linked the "Temple of Satan" website. Lol... So I went to the site and thoroughly checked it out. They don't even worship Satan! Don't even believe he's a literal being. Lol... I found myself agreeing with much of what they say and I find myself liking them. Hell, pun intended, I should join!

      This whole "Luciferian Agenda" BS. I've been down that rabbit hole in the past and it's all nonsense, even though I believed it myself for a while. So she lost credibility with me there.

    Extreme weather in the Midwest and the demise of US agriculture - DENIAL all round

    Crops Devastated As More Ferocious Storms Pound The Midwest – “It’s Hard To Get Your Head Around Just How Bad It Is” [M. Snyder article]

    It has gotten to the point where maybe we should just expect violent storms to hammer the Midwest every single day of the week. Highly destructive storms ripped through the Midwest on Tuesday, it happened again on Wednesday, and the forecast calls for more powerful storms on Thursday. This growing season has been a complete and utter nightmare for U.S. farmers, and each day it just gets even worse. Millions of acres will not be planted at all this year, but an even bigger problem is that fact that crops are dramatically failing on tens of millions of acres that were actually planted in time. Every major storm does even more damage, and that is why what we have witnessed so far this week has been so alarming. [more]

    Docs Show Navy Got 'UFO' Patent Granted By Warning Of Similar Chinese Tech Advances

    Patent documents indicate that the U.S. and China are actively developing radical new craft that seem eerily similar to UFOs reported by Navy pilots.

    [check out the propulsion system]

    Pais is named as the inventor on four separate patents for which the U.S. Navy is the assignee: a curiously-shaped “High Frequency Gravitational Wave Generator;” a room temperature superconductor; an electromagnetic ‘force field’ generator that could deflect asteroids; and, perhaps the strangest of all, one titled “Craft Using An Inertial Mass Reduction Device.” While all are pretty outlandish-sounding, the latter is the one that the Chief Technical Officer of the Naval Aviation Enterprise personally vouched for in a letter to the USPTO, claiming the Chinese are already developing similar capabilities.
