Event Update For 2017-03-05





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.

Quote: "New York Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling on the Nation Transportation Safety Board to perform an in-depth investigation into the number of recent small plane crashes, the Associated Press reports. In his letter he reportedly made public, the Democratic Senator cited the Feb. 19 crash in Bayonne that seriously injured a 56-year-old pilot and the Feb. 26 crash that killed two people on Long Island, according to the report."

Note: No need to spend taxpayer bucks, Chuck; I solved this mystery years ago, long before it became such a serious problem. But hey, sure, let's see what the NTSB has to say. I'm sure whatever they have to say will be very interesting, albeit probably useless and untruthful...

Note: That will happen again. The average temp should end up around 110F at the latitude in the middle Midwest. Doesn't sound too bad, right? Well, that's the AVERAGE. So in the winter it'll be around 70-80F, lower at night and higher during the day, and in the summer it'll be around 140-150F, lower at night, higher during the day. So, if anyone's still alive by then (doubtful) then they'll survive the winters, but the summer temps will cook them, literally, and people won't be able to survive that. And it will be even hotter than that in the tropics. In past extinction events, anything that wanted to live moved much closer to the poles. Poleward migration of various species has already begun...

    Couple Hull incidents on this day. By the way, I still have to check, but the initial count is 10 Hull incidents and 9 garbage trucks (5 in one day!) for last month.

    Besides it being 60 again today, after 3 or 4 days of more seasonable weather, 2 of which were downright cold, we're still experiencing the up and down conditions that have been happening all "winter" long.

    [on SOTT, Anthony Watts, of Watts Up (b/s) "science" blog, has an article up saying the P-T extinction event was caused by an ice age - which it may have well been, but I want to do some research before believing anything he writes - known bias]

    http://www.desdemonadespair.net/2017/03/the-scientific-community-is-facing.html

    Most scientists are uncomfortable talking politics because their work needs to be perceived as objective rather than partisan. But ever since America elected a president who’s made scientifically inaccurate statements on everything from vaccines to climate change, more and more scientists are stepping into the spotlight to stand up for their profession. That includes Holt, who announced Wednesday that AAAS would partner with the March for Science, an Earth Day rally with the primary goal of preserving and promoting evidence-based policymaking.

  3. That's for the Permian-Triassic, the ice age stuff. And that's not exactly what the science said. What they say happened is, there were some serious volcanic eruptions, and then the stuff died and it got colder. Now that could be - volcanic winter. But it wasn't the cold that killed off life - it was hydrogen sulfide that arose because of the expanded habitat due to those volcanic eruptions. However cold the AIR got, the water around the volcanic eruptions was warm and oxygen-free, and because there were so many volcanic eruptions, the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide went nuts reproducing, poisoning the oceans and ultimately the atmosphere too.

    H2S permeated the oceans and the atmosphere during the Permian-Triassic. You can read Peter Ward's Scientific American article about that here (PDF):

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5If2VD7UUo3TnB4SHpQVWNrN0k/view

    So maybe Peter Ward got the hot-versus-cold part wrong. But cold alone wouldn't explain why 96% of species in the OCEANS went extinct, but 'only' 70% of land species. And cold wouldn't explain the pervasive presence of hydrogen sulfide in the environment at the time.

    So, it wouldn't have mattered much whether it was hot or cold - hydrogen sulfide would have killed off most life either way, predominantly in the oceans, which IS where most life died.

    Now, for US it may matter. Like then, we're going to get - are already getting - hydrogen sulfide and methane releases. If it's hot, we'll bake. If we get enough volcanic eruptions then it may also get very cold too, temporarily. (Not seeing enough volcanic eruptions YET to overwhelm the heating from the ongoing methane releases, but that doesn't mean we won't.) But if it DOES get cold, that's not like a panacea - if we light a fire to stay warm, we'll eventually burn to death or get blown apart by explosions, because of the increasingly flammable atmosphere, assuming we don't get poisoned to death by hydrogen sulfide first. So again, either way, hot or cold, it doesn't really affect our fate on the surface of this planet - nobody's going to be living on the surface of this planet.

  5. Also, if you read that Peter Ward article, hot or cold doesn't affect Step 9, the final step: 'UV radiation kills off remaining life.' That's what the stuff they're spraying in the sky is staving off - Step 9. (The steps are not linear, one finishing and going to the next - multiple steps can occur simultaneously, and in fact, all nine steps are occurring right now.)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well, algae is biomatter, so the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that eats biomatter and produces hydrogen sulfide will eat the algae as it dies along with the fish and other stuff that are killed by the algae (better environment: more food) and when the algae sucks up the oxygen, that opens the door to that ancient life that produces hydrogen sulfide growing larger colonies (better environment: anoxic conditions).

    So at least indirectly, the algae is a factor - when algae blooms start eating up the oxygen and killing stuff, they're 'aiding and abetting' the real enemy.
