Event Update For 2016-10-31

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. Mornin' Jonny! Gyad, i'm glad I don't live in Alabama (or Washington) - they now have no gas due to the refinery explosion, and no crops due to the severe drought. Of course, many other places are beginning to be overwhelmed by converging crises. Before long it'll spread everywhere to become a constant state of emergency (with no one to help).

    Diseases are on the rise, and that 'mystery disease' in the Northwest is the kind of thing that can spread panic and fear among the populace, because the medical people have no idea what they're dealing with, nor how to treat anything but the symptoms. Scary.

    As we'll see below, the world is constantly disintegrating, ever faster, and there's nothing we can do about it but suffer along when it's our turn.
