Event Update For 2016-04-20

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.

Two others who participated in the rescue efforts of the five workers were also poisoned."

Note: I very highly doubt that was methane, or at least it wasn't JUST methane. It was probably hydrogen sulfide. Methane doesn't hit people hard and fast like that whereas hydrogen sulfide is known as a 'knockdown agent' because it can knock you unconscious (or dead) with one breath. Both gases are produced in the same environments, so where you find one, you usually find the other too, so while I don't doubt there was methane involved, I doubt that's what poisoned these people and knocked them out...

    The accident on the Tim Maia bike path was the latest in a series of problems besetting preparations for the Aug. 5-21 games, which include worries about an outbreak of the Zika virus, political turmoil that threatens to topple President Dilma Rousseff, underwhelming ticket sales and budget cuts amid Brazil's worst recession in decades.

    By the middle of next week, temperature anomalies for the entire Arctic may rise to as high as 5 C above the already much warmer than normal 1981 to 2010 average. In such a case, we could hardly expect weather or climate conditions to be normal and there appears to be a big helping of weirdness and extreme effects coming down the pipe over the next seven days.

  6. Yeah, that's sounding bad - it's just April and the Arctic is already melting at a ferocious rate. Got me on what to expect, but whatever comes down the pike, I'm sure it isn't going to be good.
