Event Update For 2017-07-30

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.

  1. Yep, things are getting worse by the day. Oh sure, it's still pleasant and enjoyable NOW, in many places, but NOWHERE is safe or protected from on-going climate-change related weather, wavy jet streams, stuck systems, intense heat (or paralyzing cold), and the effects these have on food production, wildlife, and plants that can't adapt fast enough - which will effect us all. In the meantime, humanity is making matters worse BY THE DAY, in political unrest, social unraveling, disease spread, and ocean death by pollution.

    So sit back, readers - and take in what's going on all around us (remember these are ACTUAL news stories, not made up bullshit or speculation, and SCIENTIFIC PAPERS by experts).

    After explosive strengthening, Super Typhoon Noru is 2017's strongest storm so far

    In a mere 18 hours, Noru's peak winds increased by 90 mph

    Noru, which meandered in the Pacific for 10 days before it turned into a beast, weakened slightly Monday. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center said its maximum sustained winds had fallen to about 145 mph - the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane. Slow weakening is forecast over the next 36 hours "as it exhausts most of the energy available from warm water," the Center said. [more]

    Waves are forecast to be as high as 16.15 m or 53 ft, while winds are forecast to reach speeds as high as 182 km/h or 113 mph. [surf's UP!]

    Overwhelmed authorities, which expect the toll to rise further, said they had struggled to cope with the number of bodies needing identification and postmortems, resulting in delays in confirming the latest deaths. [more]

    Biological Annihilation: Earth's Sixth Mass Extinction Event is Under Way

    Earth is entering ['has entered' is more correct] its sixth mass extinction event, posing a "frightening assault on the foundations of human civilization," says a new study co-authored by Professor Gerardo Ceballos at the University of Mexico

    Building on research in which they showed that two species have gone extinct per year over the past century, a team of biologists analyzed the population trends for 27,600 vertebrates around the world.

    They found that nearly a third of the animals they looked at were on the decline.

    In a closer look at 177 well-studied mammals, the team found that all had lost 30 percent or more of their home
    ranges, and 40 percent had lost at least 80 percent of their habitat [more]

    Global warming stops photosynthesis

    Fahenheit 104 (40 degrees C). This is a number everyone should know.

    According to the UK's Financial Times, Heatwave threatens US grain harvest. Since the US is the world’s top exporter of corn (about half the world's export), soya beans (about one third of the world's export) and wheat, damaging the harvest will have a global impact. This follows mere months since similar problems hit crops in Argentina, Paraguay, Uraguay and Brazil. As a result, the price of corn has risen 30% since mid-June and soy prices are the highest they have been in years.

    High temperature reduces plant growth and can limit crop yields. Estimates range up to a 17% decrease in yield for each degree Centigrade increase in average growing season temperature. [more]

  4. Loss of Arctic sea ice impacting Atlantic Ocean water circulation system

    Earlier this year, a different Yale-led study cautioned that the AMOC system was not as stable as previously thought. That study said the possibility of a collapsed AMOC under global warming conditions is being significantly underestimated.

    “In our experiments we saw a potential loss of 30% to 50% of AMOC’s strength due to Arctic sea ice loss. [more]

    The World Is Heating Up Fast, The Question Is How Hot Will It Get?

    [right, "clean up" - don't make me laugh]


  5. Gotsta clean this joint up for the bacteria and bugs and (maybe) rats that'll be here when we're gone!

  6. Well, yeah there's that, which i use all the time as reasons to not bother with housework (like dusting) and lawn maintenance (which my wife doesn't buy - 'we ain't dead yet,' being her rebuttal), but i was using the double meaning of the term "clean up" - as in "to make a shit ton of money for doing what would normally be a straight forward operation" by turning it into a Federal Project.
