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...

I'm sure the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide are extremely happy about all that heat, which will help them grow their colonies and expunge us from the surface of the Earth all the faster...

By the time the methane reaches the coast, it has typically risen to higher altitudes, thus not showing up in low-altitude measurements taken at stations on land."

Quote: "The danger is that self-reinforcing feedback loops such as albedo decline and methane releases will further accelerate warming and will, in combination with further warming elements, cause a temperature rise as high as 10°C or 18°F by the year 2026, as described at the extinction page."

2017-03-15 - Huge chunk of ice 20 times bigger than New York City turns green from algae in Antarctica and the green area is growing:

Quote: "The luminous-looking green ice already covers about 650 square miles (about 1000 square kilometres) – and it is growing by the day. NASA scientists who spotted the bizarre green ice among the thousands of routine survey pictures taken from 700 miles up by US satellite Landsat 8 are baffled."

Note: Anything that changes the color of ice from white to anything else will cause that area of ice to absorb more heat. Whatever is happening here is a problem, and it could be a big problem if this continues to happen, and if the area of ice being discolored continues to grow...

Quote: "The death of mangrove forests stretched over 1000 kilometres of Australia’s northern coast a year ago has been blamed on extreme conditions including record temperatures. Dr Duke said scientists now know that mangroves, much like coral reefs, are vulnerable to a warming climate and extreme weather events. Until now, Australian mangroves were considered to be in relatively good condition, and there had never been such dieback recorded."

Quote: "The death of so much mangrove forest in one hit is 'unprecedented', a researcher says."

Note: So it's not 'just' the Great Barrier Reef being wiped out in Australia now, but some large areas of land-based life too...

Quote: "Rescue crews were called to the campus for reports of an odor of gas in a building that connects the school's dining room to its dormitories. The gas was determined to be hydrogen sulfide, which triggers carbon monoxide alarms, and the source was discovered in a generator outside the main electrical and fire alarm room."

Quote: "Bourne firefighters responded to the scene around 11:43 PM. Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Joseph J. Carrara, Jr. said that firefighters detected hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide coming from the vicinity of the Cadet Information Center. 'There was a smell like rotten eggs,' he said."

Note: Smells like coverup to me. All we can really know for sure is that this building got hit by hydrogen sulfide and two people were hospitalized. Everything else relies on trusting information that comes from the people who are hiding the truth from the public. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

Quote: "Students at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy were evacuated for the second time this week for reports of a gas odor. Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Joe Carrara said they responded to the Buzzards Bay campus Thursday night after a few people in the dorm reported the smell."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide just hit this place at 11:43 PM a couple of days before, mentioned in the 2017-03-22 update. That was blamed on a battery problem - color me skeptical. And now here's a rotten egg odor again. If I were a student there, I wouldn't be counting on living long enough to graduate if this keeps happening. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2017-03-24 - Microbes add to melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet:

Quote: "Scientists are investigating a new 'positive feedback' in Greenland’s melting ice sheet—as climate warms, more microbial growth on the ice sheet is darkening ice, and hastening ice melt and sea level rise."

Note: I just mentioned the possibility of biogenically-accelerated albedo loss a week or so ago when a huge area of ice was found in Antarctica that had turned green. So this problem IS spreading. That's bad news...

2017-03-24 - Woman has seizure, collapses and hurts herself, near the Mississippi River in Alton (Illinois):

Quote: "After suffering from what appeared to be a seizure, the unidentified woman reportedly fell to the pavement, Simmons said. The entire incident was witnessed by a passerby, who Simmons said immediately contacted emergency services who transported the woman to a hospital. A motorist who passed the scene shortly after it had occurred reported seeing a scary sight of a half-covered unconscious body with blood on the pavement. Simmons assured the woman was still alive as far as he knew and said she sustained injuries due to the fall."

Note: That's how the topplers are dying - they're having seizures and 'medical emergencies' in elevated places, so they don't just fall 5 or 6 feet like this woman. Earth is basically spraying us like we spray bugs, but it's more insidious than that, because hydrogen sulfide can poison you via smelling a 'flowery' or 'sickly sweet' smell, from contact with water (especially your head), or from eating after touching contaminated matter, and can have a delayed reaction of up to a few days before you die. Plus, since hydrogen sulfide and methane are both explosively flammable, then as we're sprayed like bugs there are more fires and explosions too, and those are killing plenty of people themselves...

2017-03-24 - Underwater volcano erupting or about to erupt off the coast of Japan:

Quote: "The Meteorological Agency on Friday warned that an underwater volcano about 400 km south of Tokyo could erupt soon, spurring the Japan Coast Guard to issue an alert to ships in the area.
Coast guard aircraft found that the color of the ocean surface recently changed apparently due to volcanic activity in the Beyonesu Rocks about 65 km south-southeast of Aogashima Island, part of the Izu Island chain off Tokyo, the agency said."

2017-03-25 - Hydrogen sulfide blowing over coastal Palm Bay (Florida), for three months, blamed on rotting seaweed:

Quote: "Drift algae and muck along the lagoon banks emit hydrogen sulfide and methane, only toxic at very high concentrations."

Quote: "For three months, residents at the condo have endured a brutal rotten-egg odor from the seaweed, called drift algae. They are at their wits’ end. But their putrid plight — although much more extreme this spring — is not unique. Drift algae explosions have been befouling the lagoon region and other coastal communities in Florida and beyond in recent years."

Note: Well, 'very high concentrations' is a subjective term. Hydrogen sulfide at 1 part per thousand (0.1%) can kill you with one breath, the so-called 'Slaughterhouse Sledgehammer Effect' where you're dead even before you hit the ground. Also, because hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas, it will flow into low-lying areas and then it will concentrate, so even if the amount they're smelling is low in concentration, that doesn't mean it will STAY low in concentration. And NOBODY KNOWS what the effects are of chronically breathing hydrogen sulfide, even at low concentrations. So the people here might have heart or kidney or brain or other problems down the line, if they don't fall over dead or burn to death first...

2017-03-25 - More than 200 lakes in Russia's Arctic region now bubbling up methane:

Quote: "Satellite images have revealed more than 200 strange, bright blue lakes in Russia's Arctic regions that are bubbling 'like jacuzzis' as a result of leaking methane gas."

Quote: "Bogoyavlensky and his team identified the strange new lakes after studying satellite data from 2015 and 16, and are now monitoring them as an active source of methane emissions. They appear to be similar to pockmarks and craters found on the floors of some of the world's oceans, which are also known to be slowly leaking methane stores."

Quote: "The discovery of the lakes comes the same week as researchers announced that they're closely monitoring around 7,000 gas bubbles or 'pingos', which have formed in Siberia and are at risk of exploding to form huge craters."

2017-03-25 - Volcano Kambalny erupts for the first time since 1769 on the Kamchatka Peninsula (Russia):

Quote: "The eruption of the Kambalny volcano in southern Kamchatka on Saturday has surprised scientists of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) of the Russian Academy of Scientists. 'KVERT's specialists since 1993 have been monitoring both by satellite and visual methods the volcanic activities and nothing pointed to a possible eruption of the Kambalny,' KVERT's head Olga Girina told TASS on March 25. 'It is a pure surprise for us.'"

Quote: "The Kambalny volcano is the southernmost active volcano on the Kamchatka peninsula. According to data from the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, the volcano last erupted in 1769."

Quote: "Its previous eruption supposedly was in the XVIII century, and prior to that - in about 600 B.C."

2017-03-25 - Five offshore oil workers on ship report large UFO 1200 feet in diameter emerging from the Gulf of Mexico and flying off at superfast speed:

Quote: "Close to 7:00 pm on March 21st, just before dusk, myself and 4 of the crew members aboard our vessel saw a craft that appeared to be five times our 240 ft vessel in length. My line of sight was about 1/4 mile from our vessel. There was a rig behind the craft about a 1/2 mile. i used this to help gauge size of craft. Sighting was approximately 80 miles SE of New Orleans, Louisiana. The scene lasted about 40 seconds. The craft rose up out of the water (Gulf of Mexico) about 40 feet, no water was dripping from the craft. Within a split second the craft disappeared at a 30 degree angle into the sky. Speed appeared to faster than speed of a light turning on in a room. Within seconds it had disappeared completely. I can say for sure that the craft was dark colored, oval in shape and made no sound whatsoever."

2017-03-26 - Update on massive explosion that injured 30+ people in coastal Port Sunlight (Britain) - widespread rotten egg odor reported the day before:

Quote: "Gas Engineers were called to Bebington Road less than 24 hours before a massive explosion - but found nothing wrong. A spokesperson for National Grid today confirmed that engineers were called to Bebington Road to reports of a smell of gas on the evening of Friday, March 24 but say they found 'no trace' of gas. They were also called to several other sites around the borough but say that emergency engineers found 'no indication of a gas leak'."

Quote: "Worried residents described smelling gas 24 hours before explosion, but were told it was 'stench from the River Mersey'..."

Quote: "Jonathan Coxell, 36, a retail manager who lives just 200 metres from the scene, claims he called National Grid on Friday afternoon because of a strong smell of gas outside his home. But he claims an inspector told him the stench was 'the smell of the River Mersey' and could not find any evidence of a leak - despite admitting 'six people' reported the stench."

Note: More likely the stench came from the ocean right by this area, and that was almost definitely hydrogen sulfide there. And then within a day a massive explosion. Also, as I've been saying for years, people are confusing the smell of hydrogen sulfide with that of methyl mercaptan, which is what they add to normally odorless natural gas to give it an odor. And there's good reason for the confusion: one of the ingredients used to make methyl mercaptan is hydrogen sulfide...

'The aim of this project is to allow ships to navigate more safely through Stad,' the coastal agency stated. 'If the project is realised, the Stad Ship Tunnel would be the world’s first full-scale ship tunnel of this size.'"
