Event Update For 2019-08-11

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.

2019-08-11 - Cloud of poison gas sickens people at beach in coastal Worthing (Britain):

Quote: "A toxic cloud which left up to a dozen people vomiting on a beach may have been poison gas leaking from a sunken warship. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is investigating a mystery harmful haze that swept into Worthing, West Sussex, on Sunday."

Note: Or maybe that was hydrogen sulfide bubbling up from the ocean floor. There may even be some synergy. Hydrogen sulfide is corrosive to steel, so as it accumulates on the ocean floor it could speed up the decay of sunken ships. But who knows - it's not like the government would be truthful if this WAS hydrogen sulfide. They'd make up some story, like sunken ships leaking poison gas. Gotta give 'em credit for the quality of the excuse though - it's reuseable and for the common man in particular it's basically unverifiable. What're ya gonna do, rent a dive ship and go look at every shipwreck? Even if you do that, you may not come back alive. Hydrogen sulfide has been killing people and animals on beaches right across the English Channel from Britain in Brittany (France) too, mentioned in the 2019-07-26 update...

Quote: "My eyes were a bit sore and itchy, and a friend who was on the beach said she felt her eyes were sore too."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is an eye irritant. We continue to creep closer to the time that an entire beach full of people keels over dead. It's coming. Maybe not this year, maybe not next year, but soon enough. I can't say what excuse 'the authorities' will use when it happens and they end up carting a bunch of corpses off of a beach. I'm just saying that they will be carting a bunch of corpses off of a beach at some point in the not-too-distant future, and not necessarily in Britain either, though of course it COULD be in Britain...

    Here we go with another washing machine fire! Come to the beach, stay for the toxic gas blowing in off the ocean! Two homes EXPLODED and there were lots of water-related deaths.
    Four small planes and a helicopter crashed and burned on this day too, while vehicle accidents all over the place, some "medically" caused raise questions about the safety of driving AT ALL any more. Driving off a cliff isn't my preferred way to die, not that i have a choice, just sayin'.

    Middle Class Death Spiral: Consumers Have Never Been In More Debt, And Bankruptcies Are Surging

    This wasn’t supposed to happen. During the relative economic stability of the past few years, the middle class was supposed to experience a resurgence, but instead it has just continued to be hollowed out. The cost of living has risen much faster than wages have, and as a result hard working families all over America are being stretched financially like never before. Even though most of us are working, 59 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck, and almost 50 million Americans are living in poverty. In a desperate attempt to continue their middle class lifestyles, many Americans have been piling up mountains of debt, and it has gotten to the point where we have a major crisis on our hands.

    U.S. Budget Deficit Already Exceeds Last Year’s Total Figure

    The U.S. fiscal deficit has already exceeded the full-year figure for last year, as spending growth outpaces revenue.

    The gap grew to $866.8 billion in the first 10 months of the fiscal year, up 27% from the same period a year earlier, the Treasury Department said in its monthly budget report on Monday. That’s wider than last fiscal year’s shortfall of $779 billion -- which was the largest federal deficit since 2012.

    1. The scorched Earth

    4. Shrinking Polar ice sheets


    None of the evidence and projections summarized above appears to form a priority consideration on the part of those in power—in parliaments, in corporations, among the wealthy elites and vested interests. Having to all intents and purposes given up on the habitability of large parts of the Earth and on the survival of numerous species and future generations—their actions and inactions constitute the ultimate crime against life on Earth.
