Event Update For 2016-03-04

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.

  1. Once again, I like to look back at where we were last year to compare stats.

    In 2015 by this date home explosions were ahead of this year, but tractor trailer fires this year are over 100 ahead of 2015 and RV's being similarly destroyed are up by about 30 this year. I'm not sure what this indicates, but it's notable.

    Cement trucks going up in flames - is that new? I don't recall seeing that yet (but, of course, I'm gettin' fuzzy upstairs so . . ).

    Good report (as usual Jonny).

    Rare 420-metre deep sinkhole discovered in China

    Scientists from China and France have discovered a rare huge sinkhole, habitat to many species in south China.

    The 420-metre deep doline, or sink hole, was among several discovered by scientists during an eight-day expedition that began on February 26 in Donglan county of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous region.

    Dolines found in Guangxi are normally around 250 metres deep, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

    Many species live in these dolines, including bats and snakes. Scientists also found some as-yet unidentified vertebrates and plants. [more]
