Event Update For 2016-05-01

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. Nice one, Jonny! Great job on the pictorial review, and the backstories of ships and boats so far this year. The pix say it all!

    One of Africa’s most active volcanoes is showing new signs of life

    “The big concern with this volcano is the lava flow,” says Mark Robinson, a meteorologist and severe weather expert who traveled down into the volcano just four days before it came back to life. “This one won’t go off like Mount St. Helens. Nyiragongo is much more like the volcanoes in Hawaii. [They are] very fluid, very fast-moving and very hot lava.” This newest vent, the one that just opened up, faces Goma. Just like they did in 2002.

    Robinson says that on some slopes, the lava can reach up to 100 kilometers an hour, or 62 miles per hour. “That’s pretty hard to get out of the way of,” he says
