Event Update For 2017-08-25

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.

2017-08-25 - Passenger plane hit by unknown odor, plane makes emergency landing in Frankfurt (Germany):

Quote: "Lufthansa flight LH-542 made an emergency landing in Frankfurt, Germany, on August 24th. The Airbus A340-300 plane took off for Bogota, Colombia, but had to turn back after the crew noticed a smell on board. The plane landed back safely. All passengers and crew members remained unharmed."

Quote: "According to statements at the scene from Police Chief David Steffen and Joey Hughes, general manager of the auction's Manheim location, the building evacuated was a recon center, and employees there reported smelling a foul odor and then complained of headaches and nausea. There have been unverified reports that the problem may have been a methane gas leak, but Hughes said the auction doesn't have methane in the recon building."

2017-08-25 - Water heating up in Scotian Shelf and the Gulf of Lawrence (Canada):

Quote: "Ocean temperatures in the Scotian Shelf and the Gulf of St. Lawrence reached record or near-record highs in 2016, according to a Fisheries and Oceans Canada report on Atlantic Canada's marine ecosystem. Federal fisheries scientist Dave Hebert said temperatures on Nova Scotia's Scotian Shelf were up by 2 or 3 C in some places. 'Most were well above normal. Some were record highs,' said Hebert, who works out of the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Halifax. One of those records was set last October, 32 kilometres off Halifax where the ocean bottom exceeded 11 C. He said the average ocean temperature for the Scotian Shelf in 2016 was the second highest on record in 47 years, with 2012 being the highest. The Gulf of St. Lawrence set a 102-year record for temperature in deep water with a depth of 200 to 300 metres. 'This is more concerning than the variations of temperature on the surface of the water,' said Peter Galbraith, a researcher at the Maurice Lamontagne federal fisheries institute in Mont-Joli, Que. He said this is because these deep water temperatures have not been seen before, it's not known what the impact will be."

    Update: Floods kill over 1,200 in India, Nepal and Bangladesh

    international aid agencies say things are worse this year with thousands of villages cut off and people deprived of food and clean water for days

    "This year farming has collapsed due to floods and we will witness a sharp rise in unemployment," [hey, at least they're honest about it]

    In Nepal, 150 people have been killed and 90,000 homes destroyed in what the United Nations is calling the worst flooding there in a decade.

    In Bangladesh, at least 134 people have died and more than 5.7 million been affected directly as monsoon flooding submerged more than a third of the low-lying and densely populated country.

    Crops on 10,583 hectares of land have been washed away while another 600,587 hectares of farmland have been partially damaged, according to the disaster ministry, in a big blow to the farm-dependent country which lost around one million tonnes of rice in flash floods in April. [more]

  2. Creosote bush: Native American medicinal plant may be stronger than modern drugs

    A plant used for generations by natives in both the United States and Mexico may be better at treating certain parasitic infections than currently available pharmaceuticals, according to new research by scientists at the University of Colorado.

    Researchers at CU's Anschutz Medical Campus teamed up with UC San Diego to study naturally-occurring compounds in the creosote bush, which is commonly found in the American Southwest. In native cultures, the plant has traditionally been used to treat a wide range of medical problems, including intestinal problems. [more]

  3. 2017-08-27 - Toxic cloud of gas sickens dozens at beach in coastal Beachy Head (Britain):

    Quote: "Footage shared on social media shows people on the crowded beach packing up their things and rubbing their eyes as a hazy cloud appeared to drift in from the sea at Birling Gap, near Beachy Head (pictured) in East Sussex - Britain's tallest chalk sea cliffs at 530ft high"

    Quote: "The source of the haze is not yet known but lifeguards said it was 'possibly some kind of gaseous fumes'. The coastline is a popular area with dog walkers and is a busy hotspot for tourists and locals enjoying the bank holiday weekend. But an exodus of confused and worried beachgoers was sparked when police evacuated the area and closed several roads to stop people from driving nearer to the noxious plume. Footage shared on social media shows people on the crowded beach packing up their things and rubbing their eyes as a hazy cloud appeared to drift in from the sea."

    I'm doubting that was chlorine. First off, hydrogen sulfide and chlorine would have the same symptoms. Secondly, hydrogen sulfide would blow in off the ocean, but what could be the source of chlorine in the ocean? Thirdly, there have been numerous incidents of unknown odors hitting coastal regions in Britain in the last month or two, so this is no isolated event, but one event in a pattern of similar events.

  4. Yeah, it's pretty obvious that the authorities are either clueless or outright lying to keep people from panicking with regard to wafting gases, homes and other buildings exploding, the booming noises that yield no damage, and on and on.

    Gonna take another day to finish cleaning up that one big branch that fell and, in the process, tore my pear tree in half - so that too will need to be cut down eventually.
