Event Update For 2020-01-27


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.

  1. Ya see what happens, Jonny - people get distracted by one catastrophic experience after another in the news cycle. The Australian bushfires, already a environmental calamity, were overtaken by the coronavirus outbreak. Now we have BOTH! Not to mention Fukushima isn't finished with us yet, JJFH still kills people every day, the environment continues to degrade everywhere and the 6th mass extinction rolls on. And we're not even talking about the volcanoes and earthquakes, which are ramping up again!

    That's a LOT of boats going up in flames in one day!

    PA all over today's report.

    Another home explosion brings us to an average of 1 home being destroyed about every 3 days so far in 2020.
