Event Update For 2020-08-26

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.

2020-08-26 - Unknown rotten egg odor blowing through regularly and sickening people in Los Altos and coastal Mountain View (California):

Quote: "On a late June evening, when Rachel Bratt first smelled the odor, she was inside her Mountain View home. A sniff outdoors revealed notes of sulfur and rotten eggs. She called a plumber to investigate – twice – and her neighbors near the El Monte Avenue-El Camino Real intersection did as well, because they believed their homeowners association’s sewage lines might be the cause. They weren’t. Weeks later, the stench persists at night in parts of south Mountain View and central Los Altos."

Quote: "'When the smell is bad, it has severe health detriments,' Bratt said last week. 'Me and a couple of people, we got migraines and physically sick, and there’s no acknowledgment from the city that there’s even a problem.' The official source of the smell remains a mystery."

Quote: "'A few nights ago, when it was really bad, I drove around to see where the source was,' she said. 'I went down Miramonte, the opposite side of Shoreline, and it just got significantly better the farther you got from the bay.'"

Note: Rotten egg odor, causing sickness, with the odor decreasing as one gets farther from the ocean. I'm not surprised people are getting sick. Breathing poison gas will do that to you!

    Things Have Gotten So Bad That A Million New Claims For Unemployment Benefits In One Week Is Considered “Good News”

    The Labor Department announced on Thursday that another 1.006 million Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits last week. Prior to this year, the all-time record for a single week was just 695,000, and so the number of Americans that are losing their jobs each week continues to remain at a catastrophic level. But this latest figure is actually being spun as “good news” because at least it was lower than the week before. And I am willing to concede that point, because we should definitely welcome any sign that the numbers are starting to move in the right direction. However, there is no doubt that what we have experienced up to this point in 2020 is nothing short of an economic cataclysm. Over the last 23 weeks, more than 58 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits. Even if zero workers filed for unemployment for the rest of 2020, this would still be the worst year for unemployment claims in all of U.S. history by a gigantic margin. Vast hordes of workers have been losing their jobs week after week as the U.S. economy melts down right in front of our eyes. This has truly been an economic horror show, and the most nightmarish chapters are still ahead of us. [more]

    400,000 farm chickens, turkeys & emus EUTHANIZED as bird flu blights Australia
