Event Update For 2017-12-16





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.

http://www.kerngoldenempire.com/news/local-news/the-booms-heard-round-bakersfield/881938016

Quote: "Rocky Reyes lives on Niles and Fairfax, and was frightened when he heard the boom. 'Something's going on and nobody knows what it is and it's gonna be exposed soon because it's happening everywhere.' But until then, the mystery continues."

Note: It's already been exposed, but hardly anybody's paying attention. I imagine people will pay more attention once these explosions start destroying towns and cities...

Event Update For 2017-12-15





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.

2017-12-15 - Unknown 'gas odor' hits widespread area, including Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Rancho Cordova (California), near Folsom Lake:

http://www.folsom.ca.us/news/displaynews.asp?NewsID=1632
http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article190030819.html

Quote: "Do you smell an odor of gas in your neighborhood? Several areas in and around Rancho Cordova and Folsom are plagued with an odor Friday, according to reports. Metro Fire officials said they have received calls about the smell of gas from various locations from Bradshaw Road in Rancho Cordova to Bass Lake Road in El Dorado Hills."

Quote: "PG&E has responded to 100 calls of the odor, but officials have determined that there are no apparent issues with any lines, crews said."

Quote: "The smell covered a 20-mile radius from Rosemont to Bass Lake and eventually into Folsom."

Quote: "'At this point we’re confident that there is no hazard, there’s no danger to the public (and) that the source is not in the area,' Vestal said."

Note: Confident that there's no hazard or danger to the public when the gas hasn't even been identified? It's probably just some poison gas blowing in off the ocean or oozing up from the ground and settling in this area. Nothing to worry about, unless you're one of those wanna-stay-alive types. Also, hydrogen sulfide and methane blowing in off the ocean will cause and/or exacerbate fires. Have there been any big fires in California lately? Oh yeah, and the 4th biggest fire in California history is still burning too, right along the coast. Last I checked, fires can be a hazard and a danger to the public. Ask all the dead people from the deadliest fires in California's history this year...

2017-12-15 - Unknown 'gas odor' continues hitting Canton and Stark County (Ohio):

http://www.facebook.com/CantonRep/posts/10156042622813453

Quote: "Canton City health department officials are trying to determine the source of an odor reported by nearly a dozen residents Friday morning. Terri Dzienis, administrator of Air Pollution Control at the Canton Health Department, and Linda Morckel, monitoring and inspections supervisor, were meeting about 10:30 a.m. to address the issue after the health department began receiving reports. Initially, they had heard reports of a natural gas odor in the city over the last few days, but the health department had not received any complaints until Friday morning. Reports of the smell also came in from as far away as North Canton and Jackson Township."

Quote: "Dominion Energy said it got more than 100 calls about a natural gas smell. Crews investigated, but could not find a smell or cause."

2017-12-15 - Man, 65, dies then collapses into fire pit at homeless camp in coastal Neptune (New Jersey):

http://mcponj.org/2017/12/15/badly-burned-body-of-man-found-in-neptune/

Quote: "'He was dead before he burned,' he said, assuming the man suffered a sudden, acute problem before tumbling into the fire pit."

Note: So some hydrogen sulfide blows through, adsorbs into wood and other adsorbent matter (cardboard, paper, clothes, etc). Then when that wood or whatever is burned, breathing the smoke may cause immediate unconsciousness or death. If you're standing near a fire pit then into the fire you may go and then they find a charred corpse. It's basically the same scenario as the various firefighters who've had 'medical events' or dropped dead at the scene of fires. The easiest way to tell if smoke is lethal nowadays is to breathe some. If you don't have a seizure or 'medical event' or drop dead then the smoke was okay, or at least non-lethal. Dying instantaneously like this man did is called the 'Slaughterhouse Sledgehammer Effect', where you're dead before your body hits the ground. Deadly poisons that cause instantaneous deaths like this are called 'knockdown agents'. Hydrogen sulfide is one of them...
