Event Update For 2018-03-28

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. Hey everyone, here we go again with another day of doom stories.
    To me, it's fascinating how we can report on this stuff day after day, for YEARS now, and see no change in the public (regarding awareness, panic, policy, etc). Same ol' same ol' is what people know, expect and refuse to give up on - like this charade can just go on indefinitely, with no environmental consequences.

    All kinds a crazy stuff in today's report, Jonny, not least of which is how many times your state is mentioned. PA feeling left out in comparison. i'm sure it'll reverse again in a day or two.

    Let's see what's goin' on elsewhere.

    Major dust storm affecting northern Africa

    ‘Extreme’ fossil fuel investments have surged under Donald Trump, report reveals

    Bank holdings in “extreme” fossil fuels skyrocketed globally to $115bn during Donald Trump’s first year as US president, with holdings in tar sands oil more than doubling, a new report has found. [more; yep, keep investing until it KILLS us!]

    Draining peatlands gives global rise to greenhouse laughing-gas emissions

    [hey, nothing wrong with goin' out laughing!]

    Drained fertile peatlands around the globe are hotspots for the atmospheric emission of laughing-gas — a powerful greenhouse gas called nitrous oxide, which is partly responsible for global warming and destruction of the ozone layer, a new study shows.

    Research into natural peatlands such as fens, swamps and bogs, as well as drained peatlands, found that either draining wet soils or irrigating well drained soils boosts the emission of nitrous oxide significantly. [more]

    Plastic is in our food, our clothes – and in us

    Plastic is now ubiquitous, insidious and impossible to avoid. It makes up our clothes, containers, bottles, electronics, food trays, cups and paints. Our cars depend on it, so do our computers, roofs and drain pipes. It’s the global packaging material of choice. We sleep on it, wear it, watch it, and are in direct bodily contact with it in one form or other all day and night. [more]

    Trump: 'We're coming out of Syria very soon, let others take care of it'

    President Donald Trump has made a surprise announcement that US forces will be withdrawing from Syria, citing the defeat of Islamic State and the need to defend US borders and rebuild "crumbling" infrastructure. [more]

    A false military pullback: Trump will 'leave' Syria like he 'left' Afghanistan

    Speaking to his base yesterday Trump claimed the US would be "coming out of Syria very soon" and it was time to let "the other people take care of it now."

    While that arguably sounds like a very good thing (unless you are a Kurd, in which case it's yet another US stab in the back), we can recall Trump said the same things, only much more clearly and more often about Afghanistan only to end up authorizing another Pentagon surge in that country.

  2. Congressional investigators: Text messages 'strongly' suggest coordination between CIA, FBI, Obama WH and Dem officials early in Trump-Russia probe

    Newly uncovered text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest a possible coordination between high-ranking officials at the Obama White House, CIA, FBI, Justice Department and former Senate Democratic leadership in the early stages of the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to GOP congressional investigators on Wednesday.

    The investigators say the information provided to Fox News "strongly" suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama's Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan - which they say would "contradict" the Obama administration's public stance about its hand in the process.

    Italian farmers predict crop shortage because of heavy rains while El Niño causes Peru's grape exports to drop 11%

    Italy: Bad weather affects carrot and onion production in Fucino Due to the heavy rain of the past few days, Fucino producers haven't been able to sow anything, therefore carrot and onion quantities will be very low in June. This of course will have repercussion on the numerous businesses focusing on these crops.

    "The heavy rain is causing delays in the Fucino area. The soil is soaked, so you can't even set foot in the fields. We usually sow spring and summer carrots this time of year, but everything's been compromised. Onions destined to the domestic market won't probably even be sown," explained Domenico Fidanza, Councillor for Agriculture at the Celano municipality. [more]

    EPA poised to roll back car pollution rules

    The Environmental Protection Agency is poised to roll back pollution rules on new vehicles, according to a New York Times report. In the days ahead, President Trump's EPA, led by Scott Pruitt, is expected to weaken requirements that new vehicles meet certain greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy standards.
    The requirements, put in place during the Obama administration, are intended to combat climate change. Mr. Trump's administration has been skeptical of climate change, and Pruitt monitored the removal of climate change references from the EPA's website.

    Mr. Trump said he is "open-minded" about climate change, and that "nobody really knows" the truth about the issue. [mor-on]
