Event Update For 2015-02-03

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: "The pilot in TransAsia Airways Flight 235 said 'mayday, mayday, engine flameout' moments before the propjet banked sharply and crashed into a river, aviation officials said Thursday, but they declined comment on a possible cause for the accident."

Note: Many small planes - propeller planes - have crashed shortly after takeoff. I think what's happening is, they take off, then sometimes they fly though a pocket of the atmosphere with lower than normal amounts of oxygen, not ZERO oxygen, but little enough that it's out of tolerance for the functionality of their engines. Then their engines sputter and die. His engine 'flamed out', which means it stopped combusting and stopped running. Lack of oxygen would explain that. This plane was a very large propeller plane, not a passenger jet. The big passenger jets aren't experiencing this same problem because they are designed specifically to be able to function at very high altitudes with low oxygen content. These propeller planes with standard combustion engines can't handle that very well...

  1. Good afternoon Jonny! Thanks again for your constant effort on this topic.

    Lots of timely incidents. My wife works in Norristown and said that traffic was at complete gridlock for hours due to the large apartment fire combined with road repair on the main drag.

    It's amazing to me that hay can just erupt into flame all by itself. [We know that isn't normally the case, so it MUST have had some ignition source - like H2S that can just POP with a flash on any nearby rusty metal (in a barn? Uh, YEAH) and ignite the dust and hay as a result. Why fire inspectors can't figure (or won't admit) this is even more amazing!]

    Large river of atmospheric water vapor set to soak Sacramento

    Water vapor - Mississippi River-size amounts of it flowing at hurricane speeds miles above the Earth - is hurtling across the Pacific, an atmospheric river poised to drench a parched Northern California and the Sacramento region as early as Thursday night.

    A crack team of science experts is going along for the ride, part of an experiment known as CalWater 2015, many of whom gathered at McClellan Park near Sacramento on Tuesday in preparation for the major weather event and the vital information they hope to pull from the phenomenon.

    "It's a real milestone for us. Nothing of this scope has happened," said Marty Ralph, director of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, of the project he's helping to lead. "One of the drivers of CalWater was the uncertainty of climate projections. We haven't had the data to measure the strength and structure of ARs. ... There's so much potential for the monitoring of atmospheric rivers."

    They come from an alphabet soup of agencies, universities and scientific institutes, from NOAA to NASA, USGS and the DOE, to study atmospheric rivers and the role they play in water supply. The researchers will cast a wide net from the Sierra Nevada to the Coast Range and into the Pacific Ocean during a storm system that CalWater forecasters said will produce "copious" amounts of rain into Saturday.

    "There will be ample opportunity to store this water, hopefully, and provide a little relief from the drought," said Allen White, a research meteorologist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. [there's more]
