Event Update For 2016-09-27

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.

2016-09-27 - Man, 63, dies in burning car in driveway at home in coastal Pawleys Island (South Carolina):

Quote: "Although a Pawleys Island man died after firefighters found him inside a burning car, officials said they were uncertain as to the cause of his death. At about 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 27, units with Midway Fire Rescue arrived at a residence on River Oaks Drive after receiving reports that a sedan was on fire in a driveway. Midway Chief Doug Eggiman said firefighters arrived at the scene and discovered a man inside the burning car. Eggiman said firefighters extricated the man — later identified as 63-year-old John Herman Rigsbee — and determined he was suffering from an apparent cardiac arrest."

  1. Another first, Jonny - as a couple of wooden church pews mysteriously smolder and burn to the floor. How is that possible? I realize that there is always some metal present - these things are bolted to the floor using screws or bolts generally, but the fires seem to be concentrated on the seats. Have you figured this one out?

    Things are steadily going from bad to worse as I read this blog every day. That fish kill in Florida is unheard-of!
    Everything is becoming overwhelming - fires, die-offs, and the collapse of civilization - it's all going too fast to control.

  2. Yeah, the smoking pews, I think that's 'Oily Rag Syndrome' with the wood. The wood adsorbs some methane and/or hydrogen sulfide and eventually little pockets inside the porous matter reach concentrations where it self-ignites and you get some smoldering going out of nowhere.

    Like that square patch of a couch that caught fire in a store in Britain. Somebody must have laid a pizza box or something on that spot and the pizza box or whatever was contaminated, and that contaminated the couch, which eventually caught fire and burned that square patch. Same for some of the people whose clothes have spontaneously ignited.

    Therefore, anything that's porous that's also flammable is eventually going to ignite - carpets, clothes, curtains, furniture (especially cloth), brush, dried grass, wood stuff like fences and porches, cardboard and paper, possibly tires (but they have some steel inside them anyway to help things along that way too). Pretty scary list of things that are going to be increasingly spontaneously combusting. So there'll be an increasing number of kinda random fires, all over the planet, as time goes on. And the smoke from those fires may be decidedly unhealthy too.

  3. Thanks Jonny. Making sense of all these "unexplained" phenomena is crucial to adjusting one's outlook.

    Escaped Lion Shot Dead After Pair Prompt Zoo Evacuation

    On Thursday morning, Etosha lions Majo and Motshegetsi escaped from their accommodation at Leipzig Zoo, prompting a full-site evacuation. The pair were 15 months old and only arrived at at Leipzig in August.

    One lion was successfully corralled back into its cage and the second—Motshegetsi—was initially shot with a tranquilliser. The tranquilliser failed, zoo director Jörg Junhold told the a local news agency, giving officials no option but to kill the lion.

    Earth 'Locked Into' Temperatures Not Seen in 2 Million Years

    Earth is the warmest it's been in 100,000 years, a new reconstruction of historical temperature data finds, and with today's level of fossil fuel emissions the planet is "locked into" eventually hitting its highest temperature mark in 2 million years.

    The new research published Monday in Nature was done by Carolyn Snyder, now a climate policy official at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as a part of her doctoral dissertation at Stanford University, according to the Associated Press (AP).

    Snyder "created a continuous 2 million year temperature record, much longer than a previous 22,000 year record. [Snyder's reconstruction] doesn't estimate temperature for a single year, but averages 5,000-year time periods going back a couple million years," AP reported.

    [now the laughable part]

    Michael Mann, an influential climate researcher at Penn State University who was not involved in Snyder's research, told Mashable that "I regard the study as provocative and interesting, but the quantitative findings must be viewed rather skeptically until the analysis has been thoroughly vetted by the scientific community."

    Other scientists said they were intrigued by Snyder's findings and hope her study leads to additional research. Jeremy Shakun, a climate researcher at Boston College, told AP that "Snyder's work is a great contribution and future work should build on it." [more]

    [BWAH-haaaaa-haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! cough, choke, gasp]

    [no, ya get it? Michael Mann, spineless, greedy climate scientist who won't (like Robert Scribbler) even enterTAIN the idea that climate change will have any effect, so that they can "keep doing their job!" No conflict of interest there! And the "other" scientists are INTRIGUED!! See?! No fear, just, "when do we get our grant money?" This, from the SMART humans . . . We are so fucked . . .]


  8. They better be intrigued and do their vetting quickly cuz our hourglass is running out of sand!

  9. Dead bankers, dead doctors and dead scientists: What's going on?

    You may remember a while back there was a spate of news articles about high-level bankers and bank employees committing suicide. Conspiracy theories were coming left and right, and then as suddenly as the reports started they stopped - just like that. Here is a list of more than 50 of these bankers, in date order, with a brief overview on each of them.

    You probably also remember that last year, a dozen holistic doctors either died or went missing over a course of only 90 days. How oddly coincidental.

    But the deaths of these bankers and doctors are just the tip of the iceberg.

    Did you hear about all of the dead scientists? Probably not. [more]

    The science-oriented art movement of crop circles

    Richard Taylor, a physicist at the University of Oregon, is one of several academics to take interest in the crop circle phenomenon within recent years. Why? Well, when extremely complex, huge, and perfectly carved out geometrical patters to precision are made, people are going to notice.

    Taylor believes that "crop circle artists are not going to give up their secrets easily." He believes that unknown artists are venturing "into the countryside close to your homes" to "carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history."

    He published those words in an August 2011 edition in Physics World, and it's not hard to see whey he feels this way. These designs are truly jaw dropping.
