Event Update For 2016-12-03

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.

2016-12-03 - Dozens of people poisoned by unknown cause in Xiaokou Township, Taihe County (China):

Quote: "Dozens of villagers in east China's Anhui Province have fallen ill with symptoms similar to rodenticide poisoning, but investigators are yet to confirm the cause for their sickness. Twenty-one people from nine families in Xiaokou Township, Taihe County, had been hospitalized as of Saturday with severe symptoms of poisoning, the county's health department said in a statement. Another 15 villagers had milder symptoms and were allowed to go home, it said. The first two cases were reported on Nov. 25, when Liang Guibin and his wife were admitted to hospital with seizures, hematemesis and blood in their urine. Doctors suspected this was a result of consuming rat poison. The subsequent investigation, however, found no traces of any harmful substance in samples of leftover food and water taken from their home in Maozhuang Village. The couple had not dined out or been exposed to harmful chemicals. Similar symptoms were reported by many other villagers over the past week."

Note: Highly likely to be hydrogen sulfide poisoning. An obvious neurotoxic effect out of nowhere - these days, probably hydrogen sulfide. Many rodenticides and most or all insecticides are neurotoxic too, so hydrogen sulfide poisoning may be mistaken for one or the other by those who have no idea what's going on. It also disappears quickly, both in the environment and in people's bodies once they've been poisoned, so the fact that they've had no luck identifying the source makes it more likely, not less, that this was hydrogen sulfide...

But more dangerous are the landfill gases that are constantly emanating from the garbage dump."

Quote: "At Shahwadi, Piplaj, Ektanagar and Citizen Nagar, a local NGO run by Shahid Sheikh collected several medical records of people suffering from asthama, cancer, kidney related disease and heart disease as well."

Note: There's hydrogen sulfide blowing around there and that's definitely going to cause heart and kidney problems over time, among other things...

2016-12-03 - NASA photo reveals a startling 300-foot-wide rift in Antarctic Ice Shelf:

Quote: "The breakup of the massive Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica is getting closer and will eventually produce an iceberg the size of Delaware prowling the Southern Ocean, according to new NASA data. On Friday, NASA released an astonishing new image taken by researchers flying above the ice shelf on Nov. 10 showing the crack is getting longer, deeper and wider. Scientists think it will eventually cause a large section of the shelf to break off. The scientists associated with a NASA field campaign known as Operation IceBridge measured the Larsen C fracture to be about 70 miles long, more than 300 feet wide and about a third of a mile deep."

Note: She's breaking up, Captain!

As the polar air dives down the Rockies, the polar vortex will begin to reform near the U.S. Canadian border. The ridiculously warm temperatures that much of the U.S. has enjoyed will end shockingly with the southward and eastward advance of the Siberian air."

Quote: "Capable of growing to 10 feet long and weighing upwards of 400 pounds, the heavily-armored fish lives in oxygen-poor waters and surfaces to breathe. The arapaima is difficult to catch and study and is also endangered, which is why species classification is so important: Only about 5,000 of the fish still live in the wild."

  2. Heh, they're trying to make that 6.1 inches of snow sound more ice-age-ish. It's not the QUANTITY of snow they should be looking at - though as all the methane entering the atmosphere breaks down, it creates water, so you'd expect more high-precip events now. If anything, look at WHEN the first snow occurred. Was it the earliest? Not even close. The earliest was Oct. 12, 2006. The latest was just 16 days off from this snowfall - December 20, 2012, which broke the previous record for latest first measurable snowfall set in December 17, 1899.

    And really, it's just one event in one area anyway, so there's not much one can ever conclude from that, although I suppose it's worth noting that it was an abnormally high amount of precip for the first snowfall. But one event in one area - not too meaningful, and definitely not ice-age-ish.

  3. Exactly. See, SOME people can read AND think critically.
