Event Update For 2015-12-17

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.

2015-12-17 - Mysterious fiery something seen falling from the sky at 7 AM near coastal Melbourne (Florida), nothing found:

Quote: "A mysterious, fiery object falling from the sky was reported in Brevard County, prompting authorities to launch a search, officials said. Nothing was found after 911 callers reported seeing a fiery object falling to the ground. The calls were received about 7 a.m. Thursday, with reports of the mysterious object striking the area near the Interstate 95 onramp on the southbound side of Palm Bay Road. Palm Bay Fire Rescue crews and police searched the area but found nothing. A check with Melbourne International Airport also turned up no information about the mysterious object, News 6 partner Florida Today reported."

Quote: "The mystery will likely go unsolved, police say."

Note: I don't think there WAS an object here. What they likely saw was an atmospheric gas plume igniting, and it burned from the ignition point downward until there wasn't enough flammable gas left unburned to sustain the 'flash fire'. When that happens, it may look like a burning object in motion, but there's no actual object, which is why they found nothing. A man saw a huge expanding cloud of fire in the sky near coastal Port Townshend (Washington) in August, mentioned in the 2015-08-13 update. That too had to be a 'flash fire' burning off a cloud of flammable gas in the atmosphere, though the cloud he saw burning off must have been significantly larger than the one here in Florida. If the cloud is concentrated enough there may be an explosion and 'flash of light', as with all the mysterious unexplained city-shaking explosions reported around the world in recent years...

    Next Year Will Be The Hottest On Record, Met Office Warns

    Next year will be the hottest ever recorded, according to a long-range forecast from the UK Met Office.

    If so, it will mean the three hottest years ever have occurred back to back - as this year already looks certain to beat temperature records set in 2014.

    Climate change and the El Niño weather phenomenon are thought to be behind the searing temperatures.

    The Met Office forecast shows the global average temperature next year will be 1.14 Centigrade above pre-industrial temperatures.

    The Met Office says there is just a 5% chance next year will be cooler than this year.
