Event Update For 2016-10-04

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.

2016-10-04 - Hydrogen sulfide blowing over neighborhoods in the Shadow Creek area in Pearland (Texas):

Quote: "The TCEQ declined an invitation to speak with FOX, but sent a copy of its 12-page report released in August, citing extremely-high levels of hydrogen sulfide in the air. Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless gas often described as having a foul odor similar to rotten eggs."

Quote: "Tammy Norris is the mother of two children who has lived in the Shadow Creek subdivision since 2012. She loves her home but says a mysterious foul odor, reeking of rotten eggs, has permeated through her neighborhood. 'The smell is so bad that physically, you don't want to take it in, like you know in your head it has to be something bad,' says Norris."

Quote: "'Sometimes in the house, it smells like gas is leaking or something,' describes Wallace."

Note: That's right, people are confusing the smell of hydrogen sulfide with the smell of mercaptan which is added to natural gas to give it an odor. So if you smell a 'gas leak', you may actually be getting poisoned by hydrogen sulfide...

2016-10-04 - Arctic methane gas emissions have significantly increased since 2014:

Quote: "'The area of spread of methane mega-emissions has significantly increased in comparison with the data obtained in the period from 2011 to 2014,' he said. 'These observations may indicate that the rate of degradation of underwater permafrost has increased.'"

Note: Feedbacks are kicking into higher gear now. The more methane that spews, the hotter it will get, which will cause more methane to spew, which will make things even hotter, which will make yet more methane spew, and so on and so on. We'll be long gone from this planet - voluntarily by leaving or involuntarily by dying - long before just this one aspect of the ongoing extinction event has reached its apex...

    Dangerous Hurricane Matthew Strengthens in Record Hot Environment — May hit Florida Twice

    Hurricane Matthew has already been a storm for the record books. Matthew was the lowest latitude Category 5 storm to form on record in the Atlantic basin. An achievement that bears testament to the amount of heat energy the storm was feeding on — as higher latitude storms can better leverage the Earth’s spin to increase wind speed. It was the longest lasting Category 4-5 storm on record in the Caribbean. And it produced the highest accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) of any hurricane on record for that sea. [more]

    Hurricane Matthew sends Florida into panic as 'direct hit' and 'massive destruction' expected

    "Strengthening is expected during the next 24-36 hours, and Matthew is forecast to be a category 4 hurricane as it approaches Florida," the NHC said.

    Hurricane Matthew has swept through Cuba and Haiti, where at least 22 people have been killed.
