Event Update For 2019-08-07

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.

    Hey Jonny, everyone - there's a "new" Missing 411 book and interview out [new to me, but the interview is from Aug. 2015], which we'll listen to below.

    Bear falls on Sheriff’s vehicle causing crash and fire

    We have written about animals causing fires a number of times, but this situation is unique.

    Caltrans reported that the deputy’s vehicle was struck by a bear that fell off an embankment. Thankfully the officer escaped the vehicle without serious injury. The bear fled the scene, refusing treatment. [more; HAH! they know about human "treatment" - that it is often delivered through a firearm]

    Years That End In “9” Tend To Be Times Of Great Upheaval

    over the last 100 years we have seen an unusual number of key historical events take place during years that end in 9, and that seems quite strange. Could it be possible that the ending of one decade and the imminent start of a new one somehow triggers something inside of us psychologically? I don’t know, but there does seem to be a pattern. In this article I will summarize some of the things that I have discovered, and I will let you come to your own conclusions. [more]

    Climate Change Is Taking a Bigger Toll on Our Food, Water, and Land Than We Realized

    As the planet warms, parts of the world face new risks of food and water shortages, expanding deserts, and land degradation, warns a major new report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Those effects are already underway, and some of them could soon become irreversible. [more; pfff - it's already here]

    Is this mysterious burning hole in Midway, Arkansas a gateway to hell? [see ~ 2 min. video]

    The mysterious volleyball-sized [hole] was burning roughly two feet in diameter, eight feet tall and for approximately 40 minutes. And no one knows where the hole ends.

    Geologists think it wasn’t caused by a meteorite or lightning strike:

    “I can’t think of any geologic situation that would allow that to happen. Not in this area. There’s not any fossil fuels, or natural gas or petroleum that occurs in the area.“ [more]

  3. Adding Context to ‘News’ about Venezuela [Eric Zuesse]

    The EU said “We oppose the extraterritorial application of unilateral measures.” The EU couldn’t muster enough fascists to go along with the U.S. regime. At this point, Trump isn’t far from the moment when he will need either to abandon his effort to grab Venezuela in this round, or else spring a blitz invasion without allies. Even if he calls off the effort, that would only be temporary. Perhaps if and when he is re-elected, he will feel freer just to send in thousands of troops, tanks, and missiles, to get the job done. However, if Russia stands firm, then such an invasion could spark WW III. He would have to decide whether grabbing the world’s largest oil reserves is worth that risk. Meanwhile, he will almost certainly continue to try to make life as difficult as possible for the Venezuelan people, all the while blaming Maduro for their misery. This has been the basic American plan, since well before Trump occupied the White House. [more]

    The Trump administration on Friday unveiled a proposal that would curb state powers to block pipelines and other energy projects, part of the Trump administration's effort to boost domestic oil, gas and coal development.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency move drew swift criticism from New York's governor and an organization representing progressive states. It comes four months after President Donald Trump ordered the EPA [] to change a section of the U.S. Clean Water Act that states like New York and Washington have used in recent years to delay pipelines and terminals.

    'No thanks': Japan mulls own Gulf patrols, reluctant to join US-led anti-Iranian mission

    Can AI explain mysterious radio signals that keep hitting Earth?

    The signals have complex, mysterious structures, patterns of peaks and valleys in radio waves that play out in just milliseconds. That's not the sort of signal astronomers expect to come from a simple explosion, or any other one of the standard events known to scatter spikes of electromagnetic energy across space. Astronomers call these strange signals fast radio bursts (FRBs). Ever since the first one was uncovered in 2007, using data recorded in 2001, there's been an ongoing effort to pin down their source. But FRBs arrive at random times and places, and existing human technology and observation methods aren't well-primed to spot these signals.
