Event Update For 2018-03-16

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. Great information, Jonny, and spot-on analysis too!

    We're witnessing slow-death of our species, while many others have already gone into high gear or are off the planet entirely.

    Between the crazy political/military human interaction and the steady, spontaneous environmental collapse, we're looking at ever worsening conditions for any kind of life going forward.

    The fast-melting Arctic is already messing with the ocean’s circulation, scientists say

    Scientists studying a remote and icy stretch of the North Atlantic have found new evidence that fresh water, likely melted from Greenland or Arctic sea ice, may already be altering a key process that helps drives the global circulation of the oceans.

    Chain reaction of fast-draining lakes poses new risk for Greenland ice sheet

    Previously, it had been thought that these ‘drainage events’ were isolated incidents, but the new research, led by the University of Cambridge, shows that the lakes form a massive network and become increasingly interconnected as the weather warms. When one lake drains, the water quickly spreads under the ice sheet, which responds by flowing faster. The faster flow opens new fractures on the surface and these fractures act as conduits for the drainage of other lakes. This starts a chain reaction that can drain many other lakes, some as far as 80 kilometres away. [more]

  4. Here we go again, with the endless debate about human overpopulation of the planet. Let me post this first, before I respond.

    The Population Bomb has been defused by Technology

    Some of the most spectacularly wrong predictions in history have been made by those who claim that overpopulation is going to swamp the planet. Thomas Malthus, a British economist writing in the late 1700s, is the most famous of these. Extrapolating past trends into the future, he predicted that population growth would inevitably swamp available food resources, leading to mass starvation. That didn't happen -- we continued to develop new technologies that let us stay ahead of the reaper.

    In 1968, Stanford biologist Paul Ehrlich wrote "The Population Bomb," warning that unchecked population growth would lead to mass starvation in the 1970s. He was just as wrong as Malthus. Global population did surge, but food production managed to keep up.

    So far, the prophets of overpopulation have been defeated by technology. But human ingenuity alone can never deliver a final victory in the battle to feed the world -- eventually, population growth will overwhelm the Earth's ability to provide calories. That's why in order to put Malthus and Ehrlich finally to rest, a second component is needed -- lower fertility rates. To save both the environment and themselves, humans must have fewer kids. [article includes BONE-HEADEDLY WRONG Jordan Peterson (whom I admire for his other work) statement]

    But it's looking like the dire predictions of Malthus and Ehrlich will never come to pass. Unlike other animals, humanity has voluntarily limited its reproduction. The population bomb has probably been defused. [more; YGBFKM]

    Read the whole article.

    What are they NOT addressing?
    #2 Peterson's assertion regarding "managing the planet" are wrong on its face - our pollution is CLEARLY destroying the world
    #3 Population strips the world of its FINITE resources at an increasing (exponential) rate
    #4 Peterson blithely disregards the other species WHICH WE DEPEND ON, as being irrelevant to OUR continuation
    #5 Peterson's claim that we'll be able to grow more and more food due to TECHNOLOGY completely ignores the on-going effects of irreversible abrupt climate change on crops, wildlife and marine ecosystems. [The guy is CLUELESS on this stuff - I can't believe it, when he's so intelligent in other areas! Geez! It's like Guy's hard to fathom flat dismissal of chem-trails and weather modification when there's so much evidence!]

    There's lots more, but i'll let you all decide for yourselves whether this article convinces us to disregard all that we've come to learn recently (regarding all the types of pollution currently wrecking the planet; climate change as the end of the road for humanity; and Peterson's POSITIVE attitude toward humanity, for starters), and CONTINUE to think humanity will prevail in any kind of "long run."

  6. Good stuff, Mike - thanks.

    Beckwith isn't a very good debater.

    Dane makes a lot of assertions that would have to be fact-checked and the government hasn't historically been very forthcoming when it comes to their experiments on us. To add my useless opinion: I think they're both correct, that the atmosphere interacts with the spraying (etc) and that this human engineering has residual effects we aren't yet aware of.

    World water problems on tap at Brazil conference – “Countermeasures to protect supplies remain very slim compared to the impacts we’re seeing”

    Brazil, the country with the world’s greatest fresh water reserves, hosts an international conference next week on growing fears over the fragility of drinking water supplies in a heating planet. [more]

    The people of Cape Town are running out of water — and they’re not alone

    But the South African city is just one of many localities across the globe to face extreme water shortages in recent years—and one of many more to come. The World Resources Institute recently crunched data on water consumption and projected climate patterns, and predicts that by 2040, most regions in the world will be facing some level of water stress, and 33 countries could face “extremely high” stress.

  7. I was disappointed in Paul Beckwith's attitude and behavior during the debate with Dane Wigington. Paul is such a far left winger he can't help himself sometimes to not be "ate up with dumbass". It was obvious from the beginning that he assumed that Dane was a right wing nut climate change denier, which he is not. He tried to disabuse Paul of that notion, but yet at the very end he actually accused Dane of having a work that the oil companies would love to support financially. He, in my mind, implied that they do fund Wigington's work. That was a low blow, especially after a whole hour in which Dane was very respectful, courteous, professional, and patient with Paul's ad hominems and his refusal to listen to his arguments. I could tell that Paul was just hearing what he wanted to hear. He had Dane pre-judged prior to the debate and nothing was going to change his mind all the way to the end.

    Plus Paul's fanatical reverence for trying to "fix" abrupt climate change is nonsensical and tiresome. Three legged stool my ass.

    As you all remember last November I said that Paul sent people emails who had supported him the past year and asked us what we'd like him to do a video on. I told him I'd like to see him address the situation with Hydrogen Sulfide and Methane. He said that he would and to remind him in a few months if necessary. I did remind him last month and he gaffed me off. No reply. Not only that he un-followed me on Twitter. Okie Dokie.


    Of course he probably doesn't want to address the JJFH because no geo-engineering can stop it. Not even in some pie in the sky theory.

  8. Ah, I wondered if you'd ever reminded Paul - now I know. I'm not surprised how that worked out. JJFH seems to generate a sort of 'cone of silence' around it. That is in itself telling. If it were simply BS, people would be jumping all over it and calling it BS, as they do many other things that actually are BS. But that doesn't happen - nobody even dares really discuss it in any meaningful way. I suspect that cone of silence is the result of that most primal of emotions: fear. B-bawk!

  9. Yeah I got the same 'cone of silence' from Hambone too. He did read the JJFH long version, but the next day he found that British article about paraffin based skin products being flammable as though that was the counter argument or something. I then reminded him about all the other phenomena such as building, auto, bus, truck fires...people of ALL ages dropping dead in larger numbers, etc.... Nothing. Silence.

    That's fine. I'm not out to make converts. Converts and non-converts all go extinct together.

  10. As you all know there have been three package bombs in Austin this month. All three were on the east side of the city. Tonight it is being reported that an explosion occurred at a home in an affluent neighborhood on the SW side of the city. Two men were sent to the hospital but are expected to live. Now what's interesting is so far there is nothing about a package being the delivery agent for the explosion. "Everyone" is assuming this to be the case, but it'll be interesting to see tomorrow if this is an "mysterious explosion" that they'll have to blame on natural gas or something.

    Of course you know what I'm already thinking on this.

    1. It was an explosive device. This time left on the side of a road. A trip wire is suspected. Well lovely. We are dealing with a genuine serial bomber psycopath.

  11. Yeah, someone's gone off the rails. I hope they catch whoever it is soon - makes it harder to search for 'normal' explosions with all that stuff going on. I'd definitely be very cautious about anything at all that could contain an explosive device until they do - bags, boxes, backpacks, packages, anything.
