Event Update For 2016-09-16

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.

    “Uber has just bought a half-a-year-old company [Otto] with 70 employees for almost $700 million,” Thrun said. “If you look at GM, they spent $1 billion on its acquisition of Cruise. These are mostly talent acquisitions. The going rate for talent these days is $10 million.”

    Thrun means per person, a lofty number which is likely to be getting even larger with time and even more demand.

    Between 40 and 50 people were hurt in the crash and all have been transported to hospitals, Hamlet Fire and Rescue Chief Calvin White told WBTV in Charlotte. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known.

    University of Florida researchers have identified a patient in Haiti with a serious mosquito-borne illness that has never before been reported in the Caribbean nation.

Whether this case signals the start of a new outbreak in the Caribbean region is currently unknown. [more]

    Flame bursts over Torrance refinery, prompting hours-long road closure

    A power outage in the northern part of the city had caused issues for some of the units at the plant, Millea said, prompting what he called an “unplanned flaring event.”

    To stabilize its systems, the plant sent hydrocarbon products to the flare, causing a large flame to burst over the plant’s metal smoke stacks — similar to the way a giant lighter might function, Millea said. [wtF?!]

    [this is a perfect example of cascading failure from a power outage - good thing it stopped there]

    The refinery, which was sold this summer to PBF Energy, has experienced some notable problems in the recent past. In June, three workers were injured at the refinery when a 300-ton crane collapsed. Near the same time, a breakdown in some units triggered a flaring event, a company spokesman said at the time.

    In February 2015, an explosion injured four workers and destroyed the plant's pollution-control system, shutting the refinery for months. Exxon Mobil was fined $566,600 [that's about 5 cents to them] in connection with the explosion. [geez!]
