It turns out that there was mass hysteria and some people killed their families and then committed suicide. Some just commited suicide. If TPTB REALLY want to reduce life on this planet, then all they need is total, complete, full disclosure. The hysteria will take care of the rest.
There were no mass family killing going on. This is typical disinformation.
The truth as I can tell, the newspapers and media completely over exaggerated the situation. People did freak out, try to leave cities, hide, and arm themselves.
There were about 250 reported suicides in America that day, but only about 120 where successful. Though some exaggerated claims run as high as 800 attempts.
So what's the root of all these apocalyptic scenarios that some news sources have given credence to? Well, most of them seem to trace back to a single scientist, Gregory Ryskin, an associate professor of chemical engineering at Northwestern University. Ryskin published a paper in 2003 titled "Methane-driven oceanic eruptions and mass extinctions" in which he theorized that "mass extinction can be caused by an extremely fast, explosive release of dissolved methane," an eruption that would release "deep anoxic waters that cause extinctions in the marine realm," with extinctions on land brought about by "explosions and conflagrations that follow the massive release of methane" and by "eruption-triggered floods."
In other words, we could all die from a massive earth fart.

So you say they want to wipe out 30 million? I say, let them wipe out 30 million. Go ahead, good deal, free ticket home. Their problem will not go away, and they are burning in the Creators fire. Let them do what they will, for the Wrath of God will only come down harder upon them. ( :
