Event Update For 2016-08-06

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.

    Florida faces major flooding from persistent tropical downpours

    Tropical downpours will continue to stream into northern Florida through most of this week, dropping 1-3 inches of rain on some communities daily. In some locations, that amount of rain could pour down in as many hours.

    The cumulative total of the rain will exceed 5 inches in many areas across Florida's panhandle and the northwestern peninsula. Localized amounts will even reach or exceed a foot.

    Loss of sea ice "greater than previously thought"

    "The results, published in The Cryosphere, show a thinning in the central Arctic Ocean of 65 percent between 1975 and 2012. September ice thickness, when the ice cover is at a minimum, is 85 percent thinner for the same 37-year stretch."

    “We knew the ice was thinning, but we now have additional confirmation on how fast, and we can see that it’s not slowing down.” [uh-oh]
