Event Update For 2015-07-08

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.

Boeing has added a twist, in that their engine uses the resulting heat to power the lasers. I think the novel was The Jupiter Theft, from 1977, by Donald Moffitt. He died in 2014 so he didn't get to see the very propulsion method he postulated getting patented by Boeing. Dredging this book up from my memory banks was no easy task - that was 38 years ago!

    That's amazing you remembering that book Jonny. i'm gonna pick it up at the library if it's still available. Geez i thought i read everybody back then - missed this one (too).

    The one that put the icing on the cake for me today was the simultaneous water main, fire eruption story. [whew, jes' no arguin' 'air]


    The dog drinkin' from the lake and dyin' was particularly stunning, though the rest of your stories are too.

  2. some events happenin' now:

    [this is very cool]

    NASA finds gnarly surfer waves in universe

    USGS: Earthquake Magnitude 6.7 - 155km SSW of Dadali, Solomon Islands

    New Zealand continues to be exposed to Antarctic air
    This is storm #5 in 6 weeks in this country.

    Gisbourne, which is in the NE of the country, is isolated from the rest of the country, partially because neo-liberal governments have shut down rail links.

    Meanwhile Brisbane in the winterless north of Australia is about to see frigid conditions.

    [continuing down to these articles]

    Antarctic air mass to send south-east Queensland temperatures plummeting
    [a rare thunderstorm was expected also]

    Antarctic Vortex: This colossal conveyor belt of cold will chill eastern Australia to the bone [like Canada and New England experienced this past winter, eh? Hoser!]

    Water spout sighted on Lake Tahoe


  3. Polar Vortex: The Sequel. 'The shrimp's frozen to the barbee this time!'

  4. Another passenger plane aborts takeoff in Chicago, fire and smoke mentioned:

    Three fishing boats go up in flames at dock in coastal Narragansett (Rhode Island):

    Wetland fire breaks out near stadium in Las Vegas:

  5. Now how can we have a fire in a wetland area? [read up on JJFH to find out]

    Great stuff Jonny.
