Event Update For 2019-04-12

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.

2019-04-12 - US Strategic Petroleum Reserve contaminated with extremely high levels of hydrogen sulfide:

Quote: "Exxon Mobil Corp. is the latest company to raise concerns that a stockpile of U.S. government crude is tainted with poisonous gas. The American energy giant said some of the oil it purchased last year from the Energy Department’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve, or SPR, contained 'extremely high levels' of hydrogen sulfide, according to emails obtained by Bloomberg under the Freedom of Information Act. In some cases, the gas level was 250 times higher than government safety standards allow."

2019-04-12 - Several people sickened by hydrogen sulfide at mall in Nashville (Tennessee):

Quote: "Several people reported getting sick after smelling a foul odor at the Vanderbilt Access Center near The Mall at Green Hills. The Nashville Fire Department responded to 3841 Green Hills Village Dr. after receiving a report of people feeling ill. There was a concern that it was due to a gas leak, but fire officials said the smell emanated from the sewer system."

Note: Another example of people confusing the smell of the odorant added to natural gas with the smell of sewer gas, e.g. hydrogen sulfide...

2019-04-12 - Thousands of flammable methane-spewing lakes appearing all over Alaska and Siberia as the world warms and permafrost melts:

Quote: "Thousands of flammable lakes are popping up all over Alaska and Siberia. Rising global temperatures are thawing and melting permafrost in the Arctic, which creates these thermokarst lakes that bubble with methane. The methane is flammable, but also getting into the atmosphere where it can contribute to further climate change."

2019-04-12 - Much more methane than originally thought spewing into the atmosphere in New Mexico:

Quote: "New numbers show New Mexico's methane emissions are much higher than previously thought. A new report from the Environmental Defense Fund is estimating statewide emissions from oil and natural gas sites are five times higher than what the EPA reported. The environmental group is crediting the surge in emissions to an increase in oil and natural gas drilling at the Permian Basin."

2019-04-12 - Bering Sea warming quickly and transforming:

Quote: "Winter storm surge flooding is the latest indication that something’s off-kilter around the Bering Strait, the gateway from the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean.

    The Australian and Queensland Governments have quietly begun funding feasibility studies looking into manipulation of oceanic and atmospheric conditions to cool down the waters around the Great Barrier Reef. These so-called geoengineering techniques involve shading the reef with a polymer screen, increasing the brightness of clouds (both to reflect sunlight) and mixing warmer shallow waters with colder waters pumped up from the ocean depths.
