2016-06-18 - Man and woman, both 40, go diving, both surface unconscious, woman foaming at the mouth, near coastal Anacapa Island (California):

Quote: "Two divers who came to the surface unresponsive were rescued Saturday morning off Anacapa Island in a joint effort between the Ventura County Fire Department and Coast Guard. The Coast Guard got a call about 10 a.m. from an 85-foot commercial diving vessel near Anacapa Island that a 40-year-old woman was unresponsive and foaming at the mouth and that a 40-year-old man was also unresponsive and had bloodshot eyes, officials said."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide poisoning can cause foaming at the mouth and it can also cause blood vessels to rupture and it's also an eye irritant. This is a volcanic island that they were at, and the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that emit hydrogen sulfide often grow colonies around volcanic vents and thermal sources on the ocean floors. Numerous divers have been found dead recently, and others have been found foaming at the mouth or vomiting blood. The easiest way to tell if water is contaminated is to get in the water. If you don't sicken or die then it was okay and if you do sicken or die then it wasn't okay...

Note: Wow, the WATER is 20F warmer than the 1981-2011 average. That's just hyooooge. Air temps fluctuate much easier than water temps, because it takes so much more energy to heat a cubic centimeter of water than an equal volume of air. So to warm the WATER by 20F takes a truly vast amount of energy. And once the ice is gone and we have deep blue sea in the Arctic, the seas will absorb yet more heat energy all the faster...
