Event Update For 2016-05-27

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.

    How fast can I go stupid? Not fast enough it seems.

    We are losing 3 oxygen molecules in our atmosphere for each carbon dioxide molecule that is produced when we burn fossil fuels.

    Rapid planetary magnetic field depletion causes oxygen loss.

    Rapid biomass depletion causes oxygen loss. Think trees and plankton.

    Oxygen loss is exponential and directly proportional to carbon emissions.

    We are just below 21% oxygen, below 19% causes cognition loss.

    We will go stupid before we die off.

    Life cannot survive below 15% oxygen.

    Every day I drive far away to work to kill frogs and bees cutting grass.

    The Next Big Crash Of The U.S. Economy Is Coming, Here's Why

    How Much Warming Have Humans Caused?
    Differences in baseline

    A few hundred years ago, temperatures were falling and they would have kept falling, in line with the Milankovitch cycles, had there been no warming caused by humans.

    From that bottom point, temperatures first rose by about 0.4°C, overwhelming the downward trend that would otherwise have taken temperatures down further, and then there was an additional rise of at least 1.05°C, when using a baseline of 1961-1990. That may suggest that humans have caused a total of 1.45°C warming.

    [but wait, there's more]

    Humans have caused even more warming

    The situation looks to be even worse than what the above figures may suggest. Indeed, the bottom low point in the Marcott graph would have been even lower had there been no warming by humans.

    Temperatures before 1900 were already higher than what they would have been had humans caused no warming. The fact that humans did cause substantial warming between 1800 and 1900 is illustrated by the graph below, from a recent post by Michael Mann, who adds that some 0.3°C greenhouse warming had already taken place between the year 1800 and the year 1900.
