Event Update For 2016-06-07

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.

  1. Sure glad i don't own a boat, go fishing, or play around in water much these days - it's downright LIFE THREATENING!

    Lotta electrical infrastructure going up in flames lately.

    Too many vehicles "veering off course" and causing problems.

    An awful lot of people are just slumping over dead. i guess dying while watching porn isn't the worst way to go - hey, it's better than being trapped in a burning car whose electrical system has shorted out and the locks don't work!

    Thanks for the super update, Jonny!

    The slowing of thermohaline circulation
    Scientists puzzled by slowing of Atlantic conveyor belt, warn of abrupt climate change

    Scientists are increasingly warning of the potential that a shutdown, or even significant slowdown, of the Atlantic conveyor belt could lead to abrupt climate change, a shift in Earth’s climate that can occur within as short a timeframe as a decade but persist for decades or centuries.

    [ah, people? We're well into abrupt climate change now]

    Thunderstruck: Lightning Will Increase With Warming
    A bolt of lightning flashes through the sky and hits the ground somewhere around the world about 100 times every second. That’s 8 million lightning strikes in a single day — yes, you read that right: just one day.

    Now, a new study finds that lightning strikes will become even more frequent as the planet warms, at least in the continental U.S.

    This is third such incident in which flames emanated during boring of a new tube well in the Mandi Bamora area.
