2018-06-02 - Why sea level rise may be the greatest threat to civilization:

Note: Well, I agree it's a threat, but in my view the changes to the atmosphere are a far greater threat. You can move to higher ground to avoid the ocean. Where are you going to go when the atmosphere is too poisoned, too flammable and/or too low in oxygen to survive? Already you could burst into flame and burn to death or fall over dead tomorrow, regardless of where you are. That seems like a much worse threat than sea level rise, at least to me. We might all be dead before sea level rise causes too many (more) problems...

'These deaths were not caused by an epidemic, and there has also been a rapid increase in the apparently natural deaths of many other mature baobabs.'"

Her boyfriend shut all the windows, and she went to see what was happening. The smell outside was even stronger, she said. It smelled like rotten eggs, like sulphur. 'It had an almost a caustic feel to it … almost choking you when you tried to breathe,' she told the NOW."

Quote: "'Something that strong, that pervasive, and over that large of an area, it must have been a big breach or something. I want to know what the hell that was,' she said."

Quote: "An apartment building in Plymouth was evacuated Sunday as authorities investigated an unknown chemical odor. According to police, a call of a possible gas odor at 17600 14th Avenue North came in at 1:40 p.m. The Plymouth Fire Department has not yet been able to determine what the odor is."

2018-06-17 - Fracking fluid additives can cause delayed production of hydrogen sulfide in shale gas reservoirs:

Quote: "Surfactants and biocides such as sodium dodecyl sulfate and glutaraldehyde are shown to undergo hydrolysis and thermochemical sulfate reduction reactions under moderate reservoir conditions, with H2S as the final product accompanied with long chain alcohols and hydrogen sulfate as long-lived intermediate species. This finding suggests that fracture fluid additives can be responsible for the delayed production of natural reservoir H2S."

Note: So if we leave the gas in the ground, it's getting more sour, and eventually it will overpressurize and explode out of the ground on its own and kill everyone in the area, similar to the methane explosions and craters that have begun in Siberia. And if we take it out of the ground then the chemicals we use to do so cause H2S to be created in the reservoirs after the gas is gone. And even once the gas and oil are out of the ground, they can still sour - the US strategic oil reserves are now heavily contaminated with hydrogen sulfide…

2018-06-28 - Two children sicken at Castaic Lake (California):

Quote: "Two sick children, including one described as nauseous and vomiting, were airlifted from Castaic Lake to a hospital Thursday morning."

Quote: "Deputy Robert Ochoa of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department Parks Bureau checked on the specifics of the child’s illness. 'The illness is not the result of foul play, or toxic stuff. Other kids are playing in the water with no signs of illness,' he said."

Note: That doesn't necessarily mean the water had nothing to do with it. Hydrogen sulfide doesn't disperse equally throughout a body of water. The water can be lethal in one spot but just fine ten feet away - picture lava lamps and how that stuff looks. These kids were related so maybe they swam in the same area and the other kids swam in other areas. Could be these kids touched something contaminated by hydrogen sulfide in the area too, and then ate some food or something. There is no clinical test for hydrogen sulfide poisoning so they'll probably never be able to determine why these two kids sickened, but the more time you spend in or near water, the shorter your life is apt to be. I highly doubt that it's mere coincidence that they sickened at a lake in a state where multiple cities are investigating why hydrogen sulfide keeps mysteriously hitting their cities…

2018-06-28 - Active volcanic heat found under Pine Island Glacier:

Note: That's right, Antarctica is melting from above AND from below. That's what I said a long time ago too, about the warming of the oceans. From the full hypothesis: "Where is the heat coming from? There are two obvious possibilities: from above or from below. It's actually both." The problem with the heat coming from below is that there is absolutely nothing we can do about that; we have no control of volcanism or heat escaping from below the surface of the Earth. The atmospheric warming, we have at least a little bit of control over that. (Though at this point it's too late to avoid the eradication of the human race from the surface of the planet.)

2018-06-28 - 'We're not alone in the universe, we must assume the 'others' are far more advanced than we are', says former NSA cryptologist:

Note: My theory is that there are LOTS of intelligent species. Then why the apparent silence in the universe? I can think of at least two reasons. The first and most probable reason is that once they make the leap to communication via quantum entanglement then they can bypass lightspeed limitations and communicate directly without any type of radio waves or radiation, so once they reach that point technologically then they simply 'go dark' so far as any detectable signals are concerned. The time a civilization spends using radio waves - e.g. the time between the discovery of electricity and the discovery of quantum entanglement - would be brief for any civilization. Another possibility, less likely, is that there are some civilizations that still use radio waves or the like, but the data is highly compressed and encrypted and that would be indistinguishable from noise. In other words, maybe all the noise we do detect isn't actually all just noise...

Quote: "Record-high levels of toxic algae were detected this week at Isabella Lake, leading county health officials to issue an urgent warning Friday against touching water at the popular access points of Paradise Cove and Kissack Cove, and to be extra cautious at French Gulch and other parts of the lake. Kern County Public Health Director Matt Constantine said state testing found concentrations of blue-green algae 20 times the level considered dangerous at Paradise and Kissack. Never have such high levels been seen in the Central Valley, he added."

2018-06-29 - Jellyfish numbers rising dramatically in the Bering Sea:

Quote: "Jellyfish have been a natural part of the Bering Sea ecosystem for decades. In recent years, their population numbers in the region have dramatically increased."

Note: Jellyfish reproduce better in warmer waters. They're also ancient and have survived every extinction event, so they'll very likely survive the current extinction event too...

The agency said the event created an ash-poor plume about 500 feet into the air. Seismic activity near the volcano has been regular since early May when eruptions first began."
