Event Update For 2019-12-07

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.

2019-12-07 - Oceans running out of oxygen and dead zones spreading as global temperatures continue rising:

Quote: "‘Dead zones’ in the world’s oceans are expanding at a rapid rate, fuelled by a huge decrease in oxygen levels."

Quote: "While nutrient run-off has been known for decades, researchers say that climate change is making the lack of oxygen worse. Around 700 ocean sites are now suffering from low oxygen, compared with 45 in the 1960s."

Quote: "'If we run out of oxygen it will mean habitat loss and biodiversity loss and a slippery slope down to slime and more jellyfish,' said Minna Epps. 'It will also change the energy and the biochemical cycling in the oceans and we don't know what these biological and chemical shifts in the oceans can actually do.'"

Note: Slime (bacteria) and jellyfish, that is indeed where the oceans are heading. The biochemical changes are the threat. Low oxygen levels and warmer waters expand the environment in favor of the ancient anaerobic archaea and bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide, which kills most life, and then they eat that dead biomatter and produce more hydrogen sulfide, which kills more life, and so on and so on. It will only take a small fraction of the oceans to turn seriously anoxic to result in enough hydrogen sulfide emissions into the atmosphere to wipe humanity off the face of the Earth. The process has already gathered such momentum that it is unstoppable. Though few yet perceive the effects - or understand what they are seeing - the escalating effects are already all around us.

This is the real threat of climate change run amok. The human race could survive warming, with a small population moving closer to the poles. The human race could survive rising sea levels, by retreating from the coasts. But widespread atmospheric poisoning? That's a whole different ballgame. Consider that the average human being inhales on average 12-20 times per minute. Call it 16 times as an average. That's 23,040 breaths per day, or 8,415,360 per year, or around 84 million breaths per ten years. It only takes ONE breath of 0.1% hydrogen sulfide (1 part per thousand) to kill a person. If the average person gets just ONE lethal breath per 84 million breaths in their first ten years, then they won't live to see the age of 10. If that happens - if the average person gets even 1 poisoned breath per 84 million breaths - then the human race will go extinct, because so few people will live long enough to have children. Is the Earth capable of poisoning the atmosphere to that degree? Easily. VERY easily. It'll probably be much worse than that before all is said and done. Year by year, this is where we're headed.

Also, poisoning via the air is just one way hydrogen sulfide poisoning can kill you. It can blow through at night and coat matter. Then you touch that matter and unknowingly get poison on your fingers - car handles and doorknobs and railings and trashcans, as a few examples. Then you eat something with your hands, and now you've just unwittingly eaten poisoned food. Hydrogen sulfide is also water-soluble. If you get contaminated water on your head then that can kill you. That's obviously already happening to water here and there around the world. Not everywhere all the time, but some places some of the time, and you won't know when or where. I think there's something in the Bible that talks about a third of the world's waters being poisoned. That may turn out to be substantially accurate, but it won't be the SAME third of the world's waters from day to day. It might be your shower water, or water in a swimming pool, or water in a stream or pond, or eventually sometimes even in the rain itself. There have already been some instances involving numerous people (and animals) dropping dead shortly after rainfall.

Directly poisoning you isn't even the only way hydrogen sulfide can kill you. It can ignite your car or your home or your business and burn you to death. It can knock you unconscious, and then you freeze to death in the winter or bake to death in the summer or crash your car into something or fall and hit your head on a rock or topple off a balcony or building, etc, etc. It can poison food sources (crops, animals) and cause starvation. It can degrade buildings and bridges and cause collapses that kill you. It can drive you insane and induce you to do such crazy stuff that cops are forced to shoot you dead. It can drive animals insane that then attack you and kill you. There are probably a thousand ways hydrogen sulfide contaminating the environment can kill you indirectly; use your imagination.

Life came from the oceans, but sometimes death comes from the oceans too...
