2015-09-03 - Man films fierce lightning storm over Phoenix (Arizona):

Note: I mentioned some science news a while back, in the 2015-06-29 update, noting that scientists have discovered that hydrogen sulfide is the best superconductor ever found, and superconducts at -70 Celsius under very high pressure. So it is no stretch to conclude that as more hydrogen sulfide blows around in the atmosphere, that is affecting electrical conductivity, and that may be resulting in increasingly violent and deadly lightning strikes. I'm not saying that hydrogen sulfide will turn the atmosphere into a superconductor; I'm just saying that it will affect the conductivity of the atmosphere (and possibly the ground), at least sometimes, and that will exacerbate electricity-related problems, including lightning strikes...

2015-09-03 - Heartbreaking photos show how we're destroying the Pacific Ocean:

Note: Lots of trash, and the warm water 'blob' is baking the ocean along entire West Coast too. In other words, the Pacific Ocean is turning more landfill-like. What do landfills emit? Hydrogen sulfide and methane. Both gases will kill fish, and hydrogen sulfide will leak into the atmosphere and kill life on land too. And both cause fires. How's life doing along the West Coast? Oh, everything is dying: whales, birds, sea lions, deepwater oarfish, starfish, salmon, etc. Where are the states with all the big fires? On the West Coast...

2015-09-03 - Vast amounts of ice melting in Greenland and Antarctica, 5 trillion tons lost so far since 1992:

Note: And that mass goes into the oceans, where the Earth's crust is thinnest, and then MISA Theory kicks in. And then we start seeing rising volcanism, especially in the oceans, and sometimes that volcanism creates new islands, as has happened numerous times in the last two or three years. And all that subsurface volcanism and heat is a big boost to the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide, so life in the oceans starts dying. All of this is precisely what we've been seeing happening all around the planet in the last five years or so...

Quote: "An odor advisory was issued Sunday for the Coachella Valley warning of an odor similar to rotten eggs, continuing a trend of hydrogen sulfide gas emissions in the area. The gas is associated with natural processes occurring in the Salton Sea, according to a South Coast Air Quality Management District press release."

Note: There's nothin' like breathing a little poison gas to get your blood flowing in the morning! Well, unless it concentrates in a ditch and a concentrated glob of invisible gas blows over you and kills you. Or if some gas gets to some electrified copper or rust in a home and ignites the home, that might suck for the homeowners, if they live...

2015-09-11 - Some guy argues that a comet will soon destroy the Earth:

Note: We already have a vastly worse extinction event occurring right now, so a comet impact would just be the cherry on top of the Extinction Sundae anyway...

2015-09-11 - Woman says that grain-based agriculture, not eating meat, is killing the planet:

Note: So eating meat is bad and eating plants is bad. Okay, well, we can still eat fried rocks, right?!

2015-09-11 - Man sails through waterspout in Vermillion Bay (Louisiana):

2015-09-12 - New methane seep discovered on the ocean floor near San Diego (California):

Quote: "Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have released details of a deep-sea site roughly 48 kilometers (30 miles) west of Del Mar (just north of San Diego, Calif.) where methane is seeping out of the seafloor, the first such finding in the region."

Note: I'm sure there are many more methane seeps too, still undiscovered, and yet more methane seeps will be forming as that warm water 'blob' off the West Coast destabilizes methane clathrates all along the North American coast. And once that methane reaches the air, where's it going to go? Winds tend to blow west-to-east because of the rotation of the Earth, so the methane will blow onto California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and western Canada, and nobody will smell it because methane is odorless. Then some of it will adsorb onto matter. Then when fires break out, they will burn harder, faster and hotter than normal. Say, which states are going up in flames right now? Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington...

2015-09-12 - Volcanoes Colima and Popocatepetl erupt simultaneously in Mexico:

2015-09-12 - Lightning strike kills two women in Telangana (India):

2015-09-12 - Lightning strike kills two women in Cam Ranh Bay (Vietnam):

Note: I mentioned this a while ago, but scientists recently found out that hydrogen sulfide is the best superconductor known to mankind, at very high pressure and at -70C or lower temps. I'm in no way saying that hydrogen sulfide will turn the atmosphere into a gigantic superconductor, but it is no stretch to think that as the atmosphere gets increasingly contaminated by hydrogen sulfide this will affect the electrical conductivity of the atmosphere and possibly the ground too, making lightning strikes more common and more dangerous. I highly suspect that we're seeing that effect now and if so then the lightning strike problem is certain to get worse as time goes on...

MISA Theory leads to JJFH - via oceanic volcanism - which leads to the end of human civilization, at least on the surface of the Earth. We're running out of time, assuming anyone wants to work toward the survival of the human race. Of course, nobody ever said that the survival of the human race is mandatory...

Quote: "Last month was the hottest August on record, topping out the hottest summer on record, according to data released Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It was the sixth month this year to set a new record: February, March, May, June, July, and August. This has been the hottest start to a year on record and the hottest 12 months on record. It follows the hottest calendar year (2014), and the hottest decade. In 136 years of global temperature data, we are in uncharted territory."

Quote: "Researchers in Sweden say climate change in the arctic is caught in a vicious circle -- a feedback loop of warming and melting, melting and warming."

Note: Yep, and it's unstoppable. Plan B or die, those are the choices. We're running out of time too, in case there's anyone that wants to face the problem head-on and work on Plan B. Once things get bad enough we won't even be ABLE to work on Plan B - since we'll be much too busy foaming at the mouth, going insane, running from fires, exploding, burning to death, dropping dead, suffocating from lack of oxygen, starving and so on - so once that window closes, it's game over for humanity...

While Neumann’s technology is not that efficient in acceleration, it could potentially be used for the transportation of cargo over long distances in space."

It will begin at around 8 p.m. Sunday when the Earth’s shadow begins to creep across the lunar surface; will reach the peak at around ten, when it will take on a ghastly orange hue in full eclipse, and then end in time for bed. It won’t happen again until 2033, so it’s a show you may want to catch it, weather permitting."

2015-09-30 - Hurricane Joaquin strengthens, may head toward the East Coast:

Quote: "Joaquin is expected to linger over the eastern Bahamas through Friday as a hurricane. Overnight Friday into Saturday morning, the unusually warm waters are expected to allow Joaquin to strengthen into a category 3 hurricane with 115 mph winds as it starts to turn north. After this northerly turn, the path becomes uncertain through the rest of the weekend as it interacts with a trough over the eastern United States."
