Event Update For 2019-10-12

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.

  1. Good Monday morning Jonny, and all your readers.

    The marine die-off continues as the ocean becomes ever-more radioactive, acidic, warm, and increasing in dead-zones.

    The thinking in Japan will now be - well, all that radioactive dirt just floated away, we might as well dump all this contaminated water in the ocean too.

    'Like a lighthouse beam': Supermassive black hole at centre of Milky Way exploded, scientists find

    The supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way triggered a "cataclysmic" explosion recently enough to occur as our earliest ancestors walked the Earth, scientists believe.

    While astronomers have suspected such an event took place for years, new research dates the blast to just 3.5 million years ago - 63 million years after an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs.

    Professor Lisa Kewley, director of ASTRO 3D, said: "This is a dramatic event that happened a few million years ago in the Milky Way's history.

    "A massive blast of energy and radiation came right out of the galactic centre and into the surrounding material.

    "This shows that the centre of the Milky Way is a much more dynamic place than we had previously thought. It is lucky we're not residing there." [more]
