Event Update For 2019-08-06

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.

2019-08-06 - Around 70 boars mysteriously drop dead at Hoge Veluwe National Park (Netherlands):

Quote: "'About 150 boar die every year, often in traffic collisions, but these animals are just dropping dead,' Mr. Koffeman told the Hart van Nederland news program. Wildlife wardens have ruled out African swine fever, as the boar are routinely tested for it, and hunger is not an issue because this has been a 'very plentiful food year for them,' he added. The Dutch Wildlife Health Centre has performed autopsies on six carcasses, and excluded the possibility of 30 other boar diseases and found no common denominator. One died of pneumonia but, as for the others, 'they looked healthy, but were dead,' said veterinarian pathologist Dr. Marja Kik of Utrecht University. "

Note: Same as the healthy people dropping dead. They look fine, other than being dead...

2019-08-06 - Three killer whales declared dead near coastal Vancouver (Canada):

Quote: "Haulena also said he has seen a change in the behaviour of the orcas. 'I think it’s interesting … this year they are not spending nearly as much time as they usually do in the interior waters through Puget Sound and the Georgia Strait,' he said. 'The L-pod I don’t believe has entered into the Salish Sea at all this year. They’ve just been seen off the west side of Vancouver Island or at least in outer waters this summer.' While it is hard to say for sure why there is a behavioural change, Haulena said it could be because the whales are looking for alternative places to feed or are moving away from noise."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide has been killing plants on the coast around the Salish Sea, mentioned in the 2017-10-04 update. Could be these whales are avoiding the Salish Sea because the whales that don't avoid the Salish Sea end up dead, or because hydrogen sulfide in the Salish Sea has killed off everything that they would eat, or both...

    Enbridge says gap opens beneath Great Lakes oil pipeline

    Erosion has created a gap beneath an oil pipeline in a key Great Lakes channel that's wider than allowed under an agreement with the state of Michigan, oil transport company Enbridge Inc. said Wednesday.

    The Canadian company said the opening between the pipe and the bottom of the Straits of Mackinac poses "no safety or integrity risk," an assessment that state regulators said they couldn't immediately confirm. But the Michigan attorney general's office said the development reinforces the need to decommission Enbridge's Line 5, which carries 23 million gallons (87 million liters) of oil and natural gas liquids daily between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario.
