Event Update For 2015-09-22

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.

2015-09-22 - Purple sulfur bacteria turns water pink at bird refuge in coastal Santa Barbara (California):

Quote: "The water at a bird refuge in Santa Barbara, California has turned a startling shade of pink. Officials say it may look pretty, but it's a sign of an unhealthy ecosystem. Warmer temperatures have allowed purple sulfur bacteria to reproduce more frequently."

    Ghostly air raid siren heard across Swansea, UK 75 years after heavy bombing by Nazis

    A ghostly sound of an air raid siren has been waking people in hundreds of homes in a city that was heavily bombed by the Nazis 75 years ago.

    Noise abatement officials launched an investigation into the mysterious noise which has been heard more frequently across Swansea, South Wales, in recent months, but admit it cannot be traced.

    Reports of the wailing sound have stretched back for more than a year, with many residents in area of Townhill comparing it to a 'war or old factory siren'.

    The strange sound, which has also been compared to an old factory alarm or air raid siren (file image), has been reportedly going on for more than a year.

    One mother, Debbie Leyshon, 46, said: 'Everyone around here has heard it around dawn and into the early morning. It sounds just like a siren you hear in the war films.

    'It always sounds like it is away in the distance but loud enough to wake you up if you are a light sleeper.' [nyaaaah-aaaaaaaah!!]

    Why some scientists are worried about a surprisingly cold ‘blob’ in the North Atlantic Ocean

    [might have something to do with all the meltwater from Greenland laying on the surface]

    at least some scientists suspect that the cooling seen in these maps is no fluke but, rather, part of a process that has been long feared by climate researchers — the slowing of Atlantic Ocean circulation.

    In March, several top climate scientists, including Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Michael Mann of Penn State, published a paper in Nature Climate Change suggesting that the gigantic ocean current known as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, or AMOC, is weakening. It’s sometimes confused with the “Gulf Stream,” but, in fact, that’s just a southern branch of it.
