Event Update For 2016-09-18

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. Hey Jonny! Thanks for another solid report of the new normal - people dropping dead (sometimes while driving!), planes having a hard time staying in the air or landing, residential explosions that go unexplained by "the authorities," increasing animal and fish die-offs and attacks, bizarre weather, climate change refugees and more.

    Here's what we have to look forward to:

    One of the world’s biggest fisheries is on the verge of collapse – ‘It’s just chance, whether or not we can feed our families now’

    and this next one is hard to look at, so people that love their pets may want to skip the pictures.

    Venezuela pets go hungry as economic crisis deepens – ‘We’re crying every day. You leave each day feeling traumatized.’

    Giant Gravity Waves Smashed Key Atmospheric Clock During Winter of 2016 — Possible Climate Change Link

    Two [climate change] effects [of Arctic warming] are identified … : 1) weakened zonal winds, and 2) increased [Rossby] wave amplitude. These effects are particularly evident in autumn and winter consistent with sea-ice loss… Slower progression of upper-level waves would cause associated weather patterns in mid-latitudes to be more persistent, which may lead to an increased probability of extreme weather events … — Evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in mid-latitudes, Dr. Jennifer Francis and Dr. Stephen Vavrus, Geophysical Research Letters (emphasis added)

    The recent disruption in the quasi-biennial oscillation was not predicted, not even one month ahead. — Dr. Scott Osprey

    This unexpected disruption to the climate system switches the cycling of the quasi-biennial oscillation forever. — Professor Adam Scaife

    …scientists believe that the quasi-biennial oscillation could become more susceptible to similar disruptions as the climate warms. — (emphasis added)

    Dodging responsibility: Michigan denies Flint right to sue state over lead contamination

    A sneaky move by Michigan removed Flint's ability to hold state officials accountable for actions resulting in the city's water supply being laced with lead. The new policy would require the state's permission to be sued, which is unlikely.

    Mere days after receiving notice from Mayor Karen Weaver about her possible intention to sue Michigan on behalf of the city of Flint, Michigan changed the rules. While Weaver did not have plans to sue the state, she filed her intent to sue so that the door could be open. [more]

    However, the state-appointed Receivership Transition Advisory Board still controls part of the city's policies. With all of the five members on the board appointed by Michigan Governor Rick Synder (R), the board quickly slammed the door on the lawsuit by requiring their approval for any lawsuits, according to the Detroit Free Press.

    The Bank For International Settlements Warns That A Major Debt Meltdown In China Is Imminent

    The pinnacle of the global financial system is warning that conditions are right for a “full-blown banking crisis” in China. Since the last financial crisis, there has been a credit boom in China that is really unprecedented in world history. At this point the total value of all outstanding loans in China has hit a grand total of more than 28 trillion dollars. That is essentially equivalent to the commercial banking systems of the United States and Japan combined. While it is true that government debt is under control in China, corporate debt is now 171 percent of GDP, and it is only a matter of time before that debt bubble horribly bursts. The situation in China has already grown so dire that the Bank for International Settlements is sounding the alarm [more]

    Chemicals in dust cause antibiotic resistance in indoor microbiome

    Plagues devastating forests across the U.S. West – ‘We’re talking millions of trees killed, whole mountain sides dying’

    Slowing the rise of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” may take more than just curbing overuse of antibiotics or eliminating antimicrobial chemicals from household products like soap and cosmetics, a new study suggests.

    It may also require taking a closer look at antimicrobial chemicals like triclosan that are found in indoor dust, said lead study author Dr. Erica Hartmann, a researcher at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. [more]
