2016 - MAY - Other Stories

2016-05-01 - Man, 57, goes out on boat, goes missing, empty 'ghost boat' found, at Lake Lanier (Georgia):

Quote: "Spokesperson Mark McKinnon told 11Alive that 57-year-old Jerry Kornmeier was reported missing from Cocktail Cove on Saturday at 5 p.m. On Sunday, his boat was found adrift in open water."

2016-05-01 - More than 140 people sicken on cruise ship near coastal Miami (Florida):

Quote: "The CDC originally reported 97 illnesses. Monday, that number climbed to 145 people. Almost 5 percent of passengers — 131 people — fell ill, while 14 of 991 crew members were sick. Vomiting and diarrhea were the predominant symptoms, the CDC reported. A cause has not been determined."

2016-05-02 - Mysterious explosion shakes homes as rotten egg odor hits the island of Bermuda:

Quote: "The cause of an explosion that shook homes in the West End last night is still unknown. Emergency services investigated a loud sound in the Watford Bridge and Mangrove Bay area just before 10pm but came up with no clues as to why it happened. A report of a 'strong smell of gas' near Morgan’s Point at about 10.30pm led to another search in that area."

2016-05-02 - Rotten egg odor hits Alameda, San Leandro, Oakland and Castro Valley (California), PG&E can't find source:

Quote: "Around 7:15 p.m., fire officials with the Alameda Fire Department said they received several calls reporting the smell of natural gas. PG&E crews arrived at 7:35 p.m. but were unable to locate the smell's source."

Note: Natural gas is odorless so they add methyl mercaptan to it, which smells like rotten eggs. Maybe they couldn't find the source of the natural gas because it wasn't natural gas - hydrogen sulfide also smells like rotten eggs, at least at low concentrations. In fact, one method of making methyl mercaptan uses hydrogen sulfide as an ingredient, so people are understandably confusing the odors. Also see the boat that burst into flame while docked in Oakland on this day...

2016-05-04 - Tennis-ball-sized hail pounds Washington DC:

2016-05-04 - Extreme snowfall and frost damage crops across Europe:

Note: The only reason Europe is normally so temperate is because of the ocean current that brings oceanic heat up around the US East Coast and across the Atlantic Ocean. Now that Greenland is melting so rapidly and dumping vast amounts of icy fresh water into the ocean, causing that giant 'cold blob' in the Atlantic, it looks like that heat is no longer making it to Europe, at least not as much as it normally does. So even as most of the rest of the world bakes, Europe appears to be suffering from cold. It's like Europe's heating system got shut off. Maybe once Greenland is done melting, that problem will disappear. Of course, by the time Greenland is done melting, all of the coastal cities on the planet will be 20 feet underwater, which will present all kinds of other problems...

Quote: "The circular pool -- about 100 feet in circumference and about 12 feet deep -- lies nearly 3,300 feet below the surface of the Gulf. It contains water that is four or five times saltier than the surrounding seawater. As a result, the brine is so dense that it sits on the bottom, forming an underwater cauldron of toxic chemicals that include methane gas and hydrogen sulfide that doesn’t mix with surrounding seawater."

2016-05-09 - Hypoxic and anoxic areas spreading in the oceans since at least as far back as 2002, killing ocean life:

Quote: "It was crabbers who first reported something amiss. In 2002, they began pulling in traps full of corpses. (Crabs should be alive when you catch them.) And they mentioned something else: Little octopuses had followed their crab lines to the surface, as if fleeing inhospitable conditions below. Then heaps of dead crustaceans began washing ashore along a stretch of Oregon’s coast."

Quote: "Every year since, those hypoxic waters have appeared in late summer and early autumn. In 2006, they became anoxic, meaning they lost all their oxygen. 'You didn’t see a single fish in a day,' says Jack Barth, a professor at Oregon State University, 'just the piles of crab carcasses and worms that had come out of the bottom, sort of wafting in the current.' When scientists examined the roughly 50-year record of oxygen measurements from the region, they couldn’t find a single comparable event in the past. The hypoxia, it seemed, was unprecedented. And then it spread."

Quote: "These suffocated patches of ocean aren’t just bad for fishermen and their catch; they represent a change in the ocean that has, at times in Earth’s past, heralded mass extinction."

Quote: "Almost anywhere anyone has looked in recent years — including the Atlantic Ocean — those deep, naturally low-oxygen waters have pushed upwards, in some places by an average of three feet per year."

Quote: "Deep in the ocean live anaerobic microbes that emit the poisonous gas hydrogen sulfide as a byproduct. Lee Kump, head of the Department of Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University, thinks that, as the low-oxygen waters expanded in the End Permian ocean, these microbes surfaced. The gas they spewed may have poisoned the atmosphere and torn holes in the ozone layer. A die-off that began in the ocean spread to land. Over 90 percent of marine species, including trilobites, went extinct, as did 70 percent of terrestrial species."

Note: The oxygen-free zones spreading upward - that's the chemocline rising to the surface. When the chemocline reaches the surface, accumulated methane and hydrogen sulfide are released into the atmosphere, which is why so many coastal cities have been hit by 'foul odors' and 'rotten egg' odors in recent times. Some people have been blaming Fukushima for the mass ocean deaths, but the spreading dead zones and oceanic die-offs preceded Fukushima by close to a decade, at least, and it's been getting steadily worse since then. This is how human civilization comes to an end, at least on the surface of the Earth, and the process is well underway and it is unstoppable. Evacuate the surface of the Earth or die - those are the choices...

Quote: "Indeed, the Totten Glacier watch has been ramping up lately: Scientists have already documented that warm ocean waters can reach the glacier’s base and that the enormous ice shelf that currently stabilizes it, extending over the top of the ocean, is melting from below. The glacier is thinning quickly, and its grounding line, where the ice shelf descends and meets the seafloor, has retreated inland three kilometers between 1996 and 2013 in some areas. Finally, recent research has suggested that Totten can only lose a tiny 4.2 percent of its remaining ice shelf before the structure starts losing the ability to brace the larger glacier, holding it in place."
