2013-07-18 - Fish bubble up dead, water turns milky green-white, in the Inner Harbor in coastal Baltimore (Maryland):

Quote: "Baltimore residents may have noticed something peculiar about the water in the city's harbor this week -- mainly that it's a milky shade of green and full of dead fish."

Quote: "The Jones Falls is currently experiencing a thermal inversion event. Basically, differences in water temperatures have caused the water at the bottom of the Jones Falls to switch places with the water at the top. This pulls sulfur bacteria up to the surface, which gives the water its milky-green color and produces the sulfur smell. Unfortunately, the water on the bottom of the Harbor also has very low dissolved oxygen, which is what's killing the fish."

Quoting This (PDF) Science Article: "Trouble begins with widespread volcanic activity that releases enormous volumes of carbon dioxide and methane (1). The gases cause rapid global warming (2). A warmer ocean absorbs less oxygen from the atmosphere (3). Low oxygen (anoxia) destabilizes the chemocline, where oxygenated water meets water permeated with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) generated by bottom-dwelling anaerobic bacteria (4). As H2S concentrations build and oxygen falls, the chemocline rises abruptly to the ocean surface (5). Green and purple photosynthesizing sulfur bacteria, which consume H2S and normally live at chemocline depth, now inhabit the H2S-rich surface waters while oxygen-breathing ocean life suffocates (6). H2S also diffuses into the air, killing animals and plants on land (7) and rising to the troposphere to attack the planet’s ozone layer (8). Without the ozone shield, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation kills remaining life (9)."

Note: This sudden change in water color and the sulfur smell, that sounds EXACTLY like steps 5 and 6 there, the chemocline rising abruptly to the surface, suffocating oxygen-breathing ocean life. This is undoubtedly happening now in pockets all around the world and as time goes on, we will progress through all 9 of those steps, with step 9 being the death of most remaining life on Earth from lethal levels of UV radiation. This is the ancient extinction event that is now upon us: atmospheric doom. The authors did forget to mention all the fires and explosions (since both methane and especially hydrogen sulfide are explosively flammable), so things will actually be significantly WORSE than is descibed in that document...

2013-07-18 - Thousands of TONS of tilapia and carp suddenly die in Lake Tondano (Indonesia):,%2BKabupaten%2BMinahasa,%2BProvinsi%2BSulawesi%2BUtara%2B%2B%2Bterancam%2Bhancur%2Bkarena%2Bfenomena%2Brano%2Blewo%2B%28air%2Bjahat%29%2Byang%2Bmenyebabkan%2Bribuan%2Bton%2Bikan%2Bmujair%2Bdan%2Bmas%2Bsiap%2Bpanen%2Bmati%2Bmendadak.%2BAkibat%2Bkematian%2Bikan%2Bini,%2Bpetani%2Brugi%2Bhingga%2Bmiliaran%2Brupiah%26biw%3D1366%26bih%3D653

Quote: "He tells the time according to the residents water containing high levels of sulfur appeared and caused the death of fish in the village Tonelet. In just a few days, about five tons of fish are harvested in the village died. This incident continues to happen and began to spread to other villages on the east coast of Lake Tondano. Rano Lewo move according to the wind and lake currents other villages. Wave of fish kills were widespread."

Quote: "If the data is in the form of money dikonfersi the losses suffered by fish farmers in the District Kakas reach about USD 10 billion. If combined with three other districts, the total loss is estimated at about USD 50 billion."

Note: This may be occurring as the result of sulfate-reducing bacteria taking over the ecosystem in the waters there.

Quote: "The toxic hydrogen sulfide is a waste product of sulfate-reducing bacteria; its rotten egg odor is often a marker for the presence of sulfate-reducing bacteria in nature.[5] Sulfate-reducing bacteria are responsible for the sulfurous odors of salt marshes and mud flats."

Quote: "During the Permian–Triassic extinction event (250 million years ago) a severe anoxic event seems to have occurred where these forms of bacteria became the dominant force in oceanic ecosystems, producing copious amounts of hydrogen sulfide.[6]"

Note: So the oceans heat up and go anoxic. Sulfate-reducing bacteria take over. Massive amounts of hydrogen sulfide are released. Most life on Earth dies. That's where we are now: the beginning of the end, the dawn of the dying. About 90% of all species died in the Permian-Triassic extinction event. What is happening now looks to be a replay of the Permian-Triassic. That doesn't mean 90% of EACH species will die, but ALL of 90% of species will die. The species most likely to go extinct are those that reproduce slowly and in small numbers and which take long periods of time for the young to reach adulthood. That's us. Once average human lifespan drops below the average age of reproductive maturity, we will be mathematically extinct, even if a few stragglers live on for a while longer...

2013-07-18 - Black kites falling dead from the sky in Queensland (Australia):

Note: They may be flying through pockets of hydrogen sulfide and/or methane. Same as the birds that dropped dead two years in a row in Beebe (Arkansas), which was blamed on fireworks. They were probably half-right with that explanation: the fireworks scared the birds, which then took flight and flew into hydrogen sulfide or methane blowing through in the air above, and then they fell dead from the sky. You'll notice that a goodly number of planes are taking off and then almost immediately crashing too. That's likely the same reason, except that the gases don't kill planes - they affect the engines, which are designed to operate with a normal air mix...
