Event Update For 2018-01-19





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.

http://twitter.com/airlivenet/status/954402563146878976

Quote: "United Airlines flight UA71, which was en route from Amsterdam to New York, had to return to Schiphol airport two hours after departure and turned back over Iceland. Some fifteen occupants of the plane, both crew members and passengers, had become sick for a so far unknown reason. An eyewitness stated: 'The purser said there were problems with flight attendants and a pilot who had become unwell.' 'A number of travelers were also affected by complaints, we heard.' It would appear a great number of passengers had complained about a 'bad smell' on the plane."

Quote: "Thousands of Indian troops are fighting a huge fire emanating from a highly polluted lake that has caused panic among thousands of people in the southern city of Bangalore."

Note: Just imagine if the Great Pacific Garbage Patch off the coast of California goes up in flames like this lake, which is entirely possible at some point. Everyone on the West Coast of the US - and maybe Canada and Mexico too - could experience some serious staying-alive problems from the toxic smoke...

2018-01-19 - Burning hole in the ground found along highway near Torreón (Mexico):
http://strangesounds.org/2018/01/mysterious-burning-crater-baffles-officials-in-mexico-8-meters-meteorite-crater.html
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ocolc_JFis

Quote: "People believe it represents the impact site of a meteorite. However, no pieces have been found yet."

Note: It doesn't look like an impact crater - those have raised edges around the circumference from the earth that was displaced and blown out of the ground by the impact. That looks like the ground ignited from underground and as it burned, the ground subsided. An underground fire burned and a hole opened and swallowed a boy last year in Jharkand (India). Then his dad jumped into the fire after him and neither were ever seen again. That fire was from coal that had ignited and was burning underground. Maybe India's not the only place in the world with coal in the ground. The event where the boy and his father died when a burning hole opened in the ground occurred in May 2017, mentioned in the 2017-05-25 update...

Event Update For 2018-01-18





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.
