Event Update For 2018-04-18





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.

Quote: "There were three airplanes inside. The fire call came in as a rescue and flames had subsided by the time fire crews arrived. 'The fire sprinklers had activated and we did have to rescue one person, who unfortunately is deceased,' Nevada County Consolidated Fire District Fire Marshal Terry McMahon said. The fire sprinklers, along with a fire wall that split the building, saved the business next door. It was able to resume partial operations with just smoke damage. But it was the smoke that may very well have been deadly. 'Fiberglass and the upholsteries and the things that they use in them, the smoke was dark and was down low to the ground,' McMahon said."

Note: These are the 57th, 58th, 59th, 60th and 61st aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018, and that makes 14 in the last week, though there were only 2 fatalities total - this hangar fatality and the woman who died when the Southwest engine exploded during a flight the other day. The deadliest plane fire this year was the military plane that burst into flame at takeoff then crashed and burned near the coast near Boufarik (Algeria), killing 257 people, which happened waaaaay back on April 11, mentioned in the 2018-04-11 update...

Event Update For 2018-04-17





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.

2018-04-17 - Unknown chemical odor regularly hitting River Ridge (Louisiana), near the Mississippi River:
http://www.wdsu.com/article/river-ridge-residents-fearful-of-chemical-odor-in-the-air-1524021635/19846393

Quote: "For months, residents in River Ridge have complained about a "chemical odor" that's taken over their neighborhoods. They're wondering about the source of the odor, and what kind of impact it could have on their health. On the Nextdoor app, dozens of comments about the odor have been made over the last several months. Residents complaining of the stench live on Arbor Lane, Moss Lane, Robin Lane, Rosecrest Lane, Southern Road, Orchard Road, Tyler Avenue and many other nearby streets."

Quote: "Department of Environmental quality officials confirmed they've received several complaints and said they have dispatched crews multiple times to test the air. However, the issue is the odor comes and goes, and all of the times the DEQ had responded, the stench had already dissipated, and air quality tests came back normal."

Quote: "Marty Martinez, a passenger on the plane, posted a Facebook Live during the emergency landing.

Plane dropped dramatically and it smelled like fire with ash coming down on everyone thru the vents. Absolutely terrifying, but we are okay,' Martinez wrote."

Quote: "In an interview with CBSN, Martinez said an engine exploded and broke a window. 'First there was an explosion and almost immediatey, the oxygen masks came down and, probably within a matter of 10 seconds, the engine then hit a window and busted it wide open,' said Martinez. Martinez says a woman was critically injured. 'There was blood everywhere,' Martinez explained."
