Event Update For 2016-10-23

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.

    Twin ice avalanches in Tibet 'unprecedented' say scientists

    Glaciologists were just beginning to wrap their heads around an enormous ice avalanche that occurred in Tibet on July 17. Then, on Sept. 24, it happened again, and scientists are struggling to figure out why.

    The two avalanches occurred at Tibet's Aru Range, just a few kilometers apart, according to NASA's Earth Observatory. What's strange about the avalanches - the first of which killed nine people - is that temperatures were close to average leading up to the slides, and the glacier sat on fairly flat terrain, the report added.

    "Even one of these gigantic glacier avalanches is very unusual," Andreas Kääb, a glaciologist at the University of Oslo, told NASA. "Two of them within close geographical and temporal vicinity is, to our best knowledge, unprecedented."
