Event Update For 2016-04-27

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.

2016-04-27 - Hydrogen sulfide sickening people on and near Hayden Island (Oregon):

Quote: "Federal air monitoring repeatedly detected a poisonous gas on Hayden Island, where residents have complained for months about air pollution so thick they could taste it. Yet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wouldn't answer The Oregonian/OregonLive's request for basic details about the discovery of hydrogen sulfide, a colorless gas that smells like rotten eggs. Nor has the agency informed residents about what it's found."

Quote: "At high levels, hydrogen sulfide can kill a person in a single breath. It poses grave dangers to oil refinery crews and sewer workers. Although it can be smelled at very small levels, high volumes in the air can actually paralyze the olfactory nerve in people's noses, leaving them unable to detect dangerous amounts."

Quote: "Since last summer, Hayden Island residents have told state officials they've been smelling a metallic, chemical odor so strong they've awakened at night with headaches, bloody noses and breathing problems that left some reliant on inhalers."

Quote: "Neighbors say they've been left in the dark about the monitoring results. 'I want answers now,' said Mary Lou Putman, a Hayden Island resident who's frequently complained. 'There's a pattern here of withholding important information from the public,' she said."

Note: Hayden Island is in the middle of the Columbia River, where numerous people have been found dead in recent times...

  2. NCAR: Global Temperature Increase Depletes Oxygen in Most Ocean Zones by the 2030s

    A reduction in the amount of oxygen dissolved in the oceans due to climate change is already discernible in some parts of the world and should be evident across large regions of the oceans between 2030 and 2040. — The National Center for Atmospheric Research in a press release on April 27th.

    [here's a caption to a pic he provides]

    (Hydrogen sulfide producing bacteria blooms off the coast of Namibia during 2007. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic gas. One that is produced by microbes that live in waters containing little or no oxygen. . .)

    [leading to]

    The worst of these toxin-generating microbes are the hydrogen-sulfide producing bacteria. An ancient organism that is incompatible with oxygen-dependent life. A horror out of deep time that has tended to crop up again and again on the list of usual suspects of major hothouse extinction killers. A likely perpetrator of the big ocean and land die offs during pretty much all global warming based extinctions. An organism that dominated the world’s seas and likely vented its deadly gasses into the airs of the world of the Permian — during the worst die-off Earth has ever seen.

    In short, hydrogen sulfide is deadly to almost all forms of life that currently dominate the world’s oceans, lands, and airs. And the bacteria that produces hydrogen sulfide requires oxygen-poor environments in which to grow and thrive. A world ocean high in oxygen keeps these little killers hidden away in the deep, dark corners of our Earth. But heat the world ocean up. Deprive it of oxygen. And they start to come out and become a threat (see more in Awakening the Horrors of the Ancient Hothouse).

  3. Yeah, he's almost there! It's only one little step to: it's already happening, though not nearly in as widespread and devastatingly deadly fashion as it will in time.

  4. The other side of this is that the ocean provides (at least) 1/2 of our oxygen, so . . .

    The Latest on a natural gas fire and explosion in western Pennsylvania (all times local):

    4:30 p.m.

    The energy company that owns the Pennsylvania natural gas pipeline where a huge fire erupted says the pipe had been inspected in 2012 and “no areas of concern” were found.

    An explosion Friday morning at the Texas Eastern pipeline east of Pittsburgh created a huge fireball that officials say destroyed one home, damaged at least three others and injured one fleeing homeowner.

    Houston-based Spectra Energy Corp. says the section of pipe where the accident occurred is 30 inches in diameter and was built in 1981. Pennsylvania officials had said it was a 36-inch pipe.

    The cause is under investigation.
