Event Update For 2018-05-18





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.

Event Update For 2018-05-17





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.

2018-05-17 - Heatwave killing birds in Ahmedabad (India):
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=HT-20180517-63149-IND

Quote: "The situation has worsened so much that birds tend to fall and suffer head injuries, as they get dehydrated while flying. Nearly 800 cases of birds falling prey to heat-related illnesses were reported at Jivdaya Charitable Trust (JCT) in Ahmedabad in the first fortnight of this month. These include some 148 infant birds, 619 adult birds and 27 others."

2018-05-17 - Unknown cause, possibly bacteria, killing coral in Florida:
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=BH-20180517-63150-USA

Quote: "Researchers believe the disease is a bacterial infection and carried by ocean current, but they don't know anything more about the disease. 'We have this one unique event and nobody was there figuring all these things out as it was happening,' said Muller. 'We'll do our best to go back and recover information, but as of right now I'm not convinced we'll ever know.' An extensive research is currently underway to identify the bacterial infection. But researchers have so far been unable to reach a conclusion because they could not grow suspected pathogens and apply it to healthy coral in lab environment."

Note: Could be the bacteria and/or archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide beginning to infest the reefs. If so, then the more this spreads, the more the coral will die, which will provide more food for the bacteria, which will then grow more, producing more hydrogen sulfide and killing more coral, and so on and so on...
