Event Update For 2015-11-20

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.

2015-11-20 - Mysterious foul odor blankets coastal Barcelona (Spain):

Note: Much like the foul smell that recently hit coastal Staten Island (New York), mentioned in the 2015-08-28 update, and other similar events around the world. The ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that spew hydrogen sulfide eat biomatter and methane, so as the Earth is flooded with dying creatures and methane, those ancient organisms are expanding their populations and creating hydrogen sulfide. As with most or all previous planetary extinction events, this process will exterminate most oxygen-using life on Earth as time goes on, including human life...

2015-11-20 - Well leaking methane into the environment and sickening people in the San Fernando Valley (California):

Quote: "On Friday, the California Air Resources Board released a report showing that the well has been leaking a huge amount of methane, the primary component of natural gas and a potent greenhouse gas. Methane is being released at a rate of about 50,000 kilograms per hour, accounting for about one-quarter of all methane emissions in California, the board estimated."

Quote: "As the leak drags on, patience is wearing thin among Porter Ranch residents, who have reported rotten egg odor, headaches, nausea, dizziness, nosebleeds and other symptoms that have forced some to stay indoors."

Note: Rotten egg odor isn't methane - methane is odorless. That's hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide is found in most places where there's natural gas or methane or oil. That's what makes gas/oil 'sour' and it's removed at refineries. Of course, when it's going straight from the ground into the atmosphere, the refineries don't have a chance to remove it, so the people in this area are now being hit by poison gas. Nobody knows what the long-term effects are of chronic exposure to deadly hydrogen sulfide, even in small concentrations, which this probably is. Whatever the effects are, you can be certain that they're not good...

2015-11-20 - Leaking undersea methane mounds 'can explode under the sea in the Arctic, as well as on land':

Quote: "Scientists have discovered mounds up to 3,280 feet wide and 30 feet tall. They are forming along the sea bed of the South Kara Sea off Siberia. Experts believe melting permafrost on the sea bed is causing them to form. They may pose a hazard if they blow out, releasing large amounts of gas."

Note: The ocean bottoms are littered with craters from previous undersea gas explosions, so yeah, we'll be seeing a lot of that as time goes on. Or maybe we won't even be around long enough to see too much of that...

2015-11-20 - Atmospheric methane levels hit 2512 ppb on November 16:

2015-11-20 - Melting permafrost hints at the end of life as we know it as methane and CO2 are released:

Quote: "Millions of ponds of different sizes have formed, scattered over the Arctic region, as the receding permafrost collapses unevenly in on itself. Any hollows quickly fill with melted ice and rainwater."

Quote: "So if we transformed all the carbon in the permafrost into CO2, we would triple the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, and that would mean the end of the world as we know it."

Hydrogen sulfide is adsorbing onto matter, especially porous matter like wood, cardboard, rubber, clothes, etc. Then when fire breaks out, the smoke may have some of that hydrogen sulfide in it. Breathe enough contaminated smoke and it's just a matter of time until you drop dead of a heart attack or a stroke...
