Event Update For 2016-07-27

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.

Thankfully the man, known as Suraj, managed to hold onto the tot and raised the alarm, although the child sustained severe injuries from the mauling. The animal fled to a neighbouring village where it hid in a heap of husk in a house and attacked two unsuspecting women."

  1. Draggin' anchor this morning Jonny. I was back to the house by 4:30 this morning from dropping off my wife and grand daughter at the airport so they could catch a 5:15 flight to CA. I woke up to the power going out, but it came back on in about 3 minutes. Rained hard during the night and early morning. No complaints.

    Thanks for today's incidents report.

    High chance that current atmospheric greenhouse concentrations commit to warmings greater than 1.5 °C over land

    Current levels of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations already commit the planet to air temperatures over many land regions being eventually warmed by greater than 1.5°C, according to new research published today (27 July 2016) in the journal Scientific Reports.

    The results of the new study have implications for international discussions of what constitutes safe global temperature thresholds, such as 1.5°C or 2°C of warming since pre-industrial times. The expected extra warming over land will influence how we need to design some cities. It could also impact on the responses of trees and plants, and including crops.
