Event Update For 2016-12-27

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.

2016-12-27 - Around 200 red-winged blackbirds drop dead from the sky in Cumberland County (New Jersey):

Note: Only something in the atmosphere - and birds are highly vulnerable to gases thus the 'canary in the coal mine' thing - would make birds drop dead from the sky en masse all at once like that...

2016-12-27 - Large number of marine creatures washing up dead in coastal Nova Scotia (Canada):

Quote: "A marine mystery is confounding residents of southwest Nova Scotia who are watching thousands of dead fish, starfish, crabs, clams, scallops and lobster wash up on the shore. Residents of Plympton, a small community in Digby County, say they have been finding dead herring on the shore of St. Mary's Bay for more than a month, but recently other marine life has started washing up dead. Dead fish have also been found on the shores of the Annapolis Basin. 'We started finding starfish, crabs, flounder. We found ocean perch and then yesterday we started finding scallops on the beach and like I said everything's dead... we'd like to know what's going on,' said Karl Cole."

Quote: "Leighton said he's most struck by the assortment of species Hewey and others found on Boxing Day. Other than most likely all being from the bottom of St. Mary's Bay, Leighton can't see any other obvious link."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide emanates from the bottom of bodies of water, so the fact that the creatures that are dying here are all bottom-dwellers is a big clue. This all started at least as far back as 2002, when marine life started fleeing the depths off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, but now the problem is spreading around the world. In the Permian-Triassic extinction event, around 96% of marine species went extinct. The extinction event currently under way looks to be a repeat of the Permian-Triassic extinction event, so marine life will die off the hardest (as has already been the case over the past several years), but most species on land - 70% or more - will also die, especially species that require lots of oxygen or which reproduce/mature slowly, like human beings...

  2. I think it's too late to stop burning fossil fuels now. If we stop burning fossil fuels, they're still gonna burn, just with alternate means of ignition, and the pollutants will ALL go into the atmosphere. If we burn them then we can exert some degree of control over what percentage of pollutants go into the atmosphere. But won't ANY pollutants exacerbate the problems? Yep. But then we're back to the 'it's gonna burn anyway' thing. That's how effed we are right there.

  3. Exactly. We've reached the 'damned if you do and damned if you don't' stage [probably about 50 years ago]. That's just ONE aspect of our multifaceted extinction event, and they're all interacting, many being feedbacks for others. There's no turning off the 'heat engine' of civilization at this point, because its fate is some combination of: it will burn itself out (economically included), cause the biosphere to degrade to the point where it doesn't support life (via pollution and effects), and collapse due to its inherent unsustainability (resource depletion), among others.

    So, I live on a boat in Whitby harbour near Toronto. Therefore I probably won't be around too long, but I plan to enjoy it before I get sploded. Scarborough Bluffs will hopefully give me a heads up though. There is a large storm water catch basin and discharge pipe there...and they smell BAD. When lots of floaters start turning up there I'll know it's time to move to higher ground. If there's anything you want me to check out around here, let me know. I appreciate all the updates.
