Event Update For 2016-07-06

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.

2016-07-06 - Dozens of cats go missing in coastal Timaru (New Zealand):

Note: All the cats are gone in my neighborhood too. Since cats are highly territorial, they don't just move on, so they're dead. The same thing happened to another neighborhood near me but closer to the Mississippi River. I suspect cats are vulnerable because they come out late at night, when there's most likely to be poisonous hydrogen sulfide blowing through, and also because they spend a lot of time grooming themselves, so as they roam around and touch stuff, their fur adsorbs hydrogen sulfide and then they lick their fur and get poisoned that way too...

2016-07-06 - Man found dead in Lake Wylie (South Carolina):

Quote: "N.C. Wildlife officers say in 2015, there were two drownings on Lake Wylie. We've more than doubled that, as we're up to five drownings in 2016 and we're only one week into July."

Note: So people being found dead in Lake Wylie is up around 400% year-over-year if this pace continues, and since the ongoing extinction event continues to worsen, the number of people dying here is only to keep on accelerating until the number of people willing to play Russian Roulette by getting into water starts dropping, either because they're unwilling to take the risk anymore or they're dead, whichever comes first...

  1. Jonny, it's gettin' more bizarre all the time. Our garbage truck burn rate is holding steady at about one a day, a number dwarfed by both tractor trailer and especially car fires, where it's way higher. Train fires, like the one cited above, are on the increase too.

    Infrastructure (especially electrical) keeps on being destroyed, planes are having fire trouble, boats are burning and people are dropping dead at an amazing rate (that isn't being reported), not to mention the gazillions of fish and other marine life dying. All this while the climate adapts ever more chaotically to all the pollution and the many feedbacks we've triggered.

    'It is July, right?': Snow forecast in the northwest U.S. this weekend

    "It is July right?" asks the National Weather Service forecast office in Medford, Ore., which then advises: "Get ready for a significant change . . . Snow levels will drop down to 6000 ft. Saturday night and 1-3 inches will be possible in the high Cascades above 6000 ft., including Crater Lake Rim."

    Creepy scud cloud forms in the sky over Kiev, Ukraine

    McPherson's latest addition in his presentations (if not to the monster climate change essay) is water vapor in the upper troposphere and its impact on climate.

    I'm wondering why all these weird and strange cloud formations are happening all over - between all the particulate pollution from humans and volcanos, increased water vapor (as a result), and the changed chemistry of the atmosphere, it's now wonder! Besides that we have the magnetic field weakening, lightning increase, solar activity impacts, and some others I haven't thought of - all contributing to what's happening in the sky.
