Event Update For 2017-02-19





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.

2017-02-19 - Several pickup trucks and RV trailer destroyed by fire in Great Falls (Montana):
http://www.krtv.com/story/34543737/several-vehicles-damaged-in-fire-on-east-side-of-town

Quote: "Emergency crews responded to a trailer fire behind Sport City Cyclery on Sunday. Sand Coulee Volunteer Fire Chief Blake Brawley says they received reports of the fire shortly after 3 p.m. Brawley says a fifth-wheel trailer was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. Several pickup trucks and a power pole were also deemed a total loss due to damage from the fire."

Note: Things are getting mighty obvious. Also, just as more parked vehicles are going up in flames, the same is true of homes going up in flames with nobody there. Homes generally have all the same vulnerabilities as cars - electrified copper, rusty iron/steel, adsorbent flammable materials - so that makes sense. Expect that trend to continue and to worsen - more parked vehicles igniting and more unoccupied homes bursting into flame - at least for a while. Eventually there will be no more vehicles or homes left unburned and then no more vehicles or homes will burn - problem solved!

2017-02-19 - Oroville Dam cracking up in California, employees fined for releasing pics of damage:
http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/02/breaking-news-oroville-dam-spillway-has.html
http://fox40.com/2017/02/19/oroville-dam-workers-fired-for-posting-spillway-photos-to-social-media/

Quote: "Live streaming of the Oroville Dam is suggesting the spillway has been compromised and a whole section of concrete has been washed away. A large breach can be seen in the concrete slipway with a huge crack opening up further down. Residents are nervously watching the Oroville Dam and have packed their bags prepared to evacuate again if necessary."

Quote: "A spokesperson for the California Department of Water Resources told KRON that a number of employees working under the Folsom contracting company Syblon Reid violated the terms of their contract by posting the pictures. A Syblon Reid contractor had forbidden a spillway team from capturing any activities at the dam and sharing the footage via social media."

Note: Sounds like they don't want people to see how bad it is. So much for transparency...

http://abc7chicago.com/weather/record-warming-trend-continues-sunday/1762233/

Quote: "It's a historic warm spell, with temperatures climbing into the mid 60's. Saturday's high was 70 degrees, well above the previous record of 62. Sunday's expected of 65 will tie the record set back in 1930, with a high of 68 on Monday, topping the record of 64. Spring is officially less than a month away."

Note: It was a balmy 76 degrees here today, in Missouri, 250 miles south of Chicago. I think that's some of the leftover heat from the 99-degree temps (!) in Oklahoma last week. Gettin' askeered of summer...

Event Update For 2017-02-18





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.

Note: A pool of water burned at this same refinery earlier this month, mentioned in the 2017-02-01 update. They mentioned then that this refinery has been plagued by a series of incidents in recent months, including a fire this past November, and I said then, "As long as this refinery remains on the coast, they're going to continue to be plagued by 'incidents'." And here we are, with another explosion and fire...
