Note: And I always thought NASA stood for 'Never Any Spliffs Available' - the times, they are a-changin'!

2016-03-02 - Hydrogen sulfide causing problems in Shiloh (Illinois):

Quote: "Hydrogen sulfide is being blamed for Shiloh’s wastewater to smell like rotten eggs, Village Engineer Norm Etling said on Tuesday."

Quote: "'The hydrogen sulfide reading in the wet well of the Archview lift station was between 5 and 6 ppm. When we proceeded to the manhole on Eden Park Boulevard where the force main from Archview lift station discharges, the hydrogen sulfide readings spiked to over 100 ppm and rose to as high as 150, which are far above the safe level,' Peek wrote in a letter to Etling dated Jan. 18, 2016."

2016-03-02 - Mystery deepens around Greenland 'Cold Spot', could indicate slowing of the Gulf Stream:

Quote: "Meanwhile evidence is mounting that the long-feared circulation decline is already well underway."

Note: And the heat that that current would normally bring to Europe - where is that heat going? Backing up along the East Coast? Multiple nuclear plants have had to shut down in recent years on the US East Coast because the OCEAN was too warm to cool them. If that becomes 'normal', then either the East Coast will go dark from lack of electricity as all the nuclear plants are shut down, or the East Coast will end up glowing in the dark from melted-down nuclear plants...

The City of McCook Fire Department typically receives between 10 to 15 cardiac arrest calls a year. Through the first week in March they have already received 12 cardiac arrest calls this year, according to a report given to City Council Monday evening."

Quote: "'What we have found with these, unfortunately, is many young ones. And when I say young, 30s, 40s, 50s,' said Harpham."

Quote: "'It doesn't smell so much because it's covered but once that ice melts off that hydrogen sulfide is let into the atmosphere,' explained Terry Rust, Wastewater Lab Coordinator with the West Fargo Sanitation Department."

2016-03-16 - Children and bus driver sickened by unknown cause on school bus in Charlotte (North Carolina):

Quote: "Officials initially thought the gas was leaking into a school bus, causing students to feel sick. After testing two buses, no carbon monoxide was found inside the buses."

Note: So they found no carbon monoxide anywhere. Low-level hydrogen sulfide poisoning causes similar or identical symptoms and that won't show up on CO detectors. Also, if the hydrogen sulfide has adsorbed onto matter - like, say, bus seats - then even an H2S detector won't detect it, since it's not floating around in the air. Anytime you touch anything now, you're betting your life that it's not contaminated. Lose that bet enough times and you end up dead...

2016-03-17 - 'Rotten egg' odor blowing ashore from the ocean in Southern California:

Note: The water turned pink last fall at a bird refuge in coastal Santa Barbara, caused by bacteria that eat hydrogen sulfide and which only exist in water where hydrogen sulfide is present, mentioned in the 2015-09-22 update. And the oceans are warming and filling up with dead creatures, and the ancient archaea and bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide love heat and dead stuff, so the Pacific Ocean is rapidly becoming more 'landfill-like', so the ocean spewing poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas is not unexpected. This is going to get worse, much much worse...

2016-03-21 - Rapid climate change looking dire, James Hansen paper accepted:

Quote: "What we’re doing to the Earth has no parallel in 66 million years, scientists say..."

Note: Now they're getting closer. What's happening now is a repeat of the Permian-Triassic extinction event, 'The Great Dying', which occurred 252 million years ago, which killed off around 95% of all ocean species and around 70% of all land species. Only life that reproduces quickly and doesn't require much oxygen and which can handle very harsh conditions will survive, as before, like bugs, weeds, fungi, bacteria, jellyfish, maybe some small rodents and lizards, that kind of stuff. Anything that matures slowly or reproduces slowly or which requires large amounts of oxygen will die. Basically, the top of the food chain will be eliminated, then life on Earth will start over, like a planetary reset switch, and the switch has already been activated and it can't be deactivated. We're just watching the credits now...

Quote: "It was around 5 a.m. when residents of Barangay Lasang in Davao City woke up to a stench smell and started having difficulty in breathing on Monday (March 28)."

Note: They want to blame a local chemical plant. Maybe it was that and maybe it wasn't. That's the same thing the authorities said when 'toxic gas of unknown origin' hit coastal Rayong (Thailand) in the middle of the night in 2014, sending thousands of people fleeing from their homes puking, and as it turned out, the chemical plant they tried to blame for that cloud of poison gas wasn't even in operation. That event was mentioned in the 2014-06-08 update. Coastal area, wee hours, symptomology - sounds like hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the ocean...

2016-03-28 - 'Rotten egg' stench hitting subway tunnel in coastal Manhattan (New York):

Quote: "A smell of rotten eggs is likely a sign of hydrogen sulfide gas, a byproduct of sewage, health experts said, adding that such a stench could exacerbate respiratory problems such as asthma."

Note: Hah, yeah, well, hydrogen sulfide is a poison gas that's as deadly as hydrogen cyanide, which is what they use to execute people in gas chambers, so it can cause much worse problems than exacerbating asthma, like brain damage, kidney failure, respiratory paralysis, heart problems...

Quote: "Another day, another petrifying New York Times exploration of how we're turning our planet into an overflowing toilet bowl. This time it's a deep dive on the West Antarctic ice sheet, a holdover from the last ice age that's bigger than Mexico and may be melting way more quickly than previously thought. If it disintegrates completely, it could dump enough water into the world's oceans to raise sea levels by 12 feet, a disastrous scenario that could see many of the world's greatest cities—New York, London, Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Venice—go Full Atlantis."
