Event Update For 2016-11-16

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.

  2. Oh, Jonny - what a report!
    First off, we have two, no THREE more examples of things that shouldn't catch fire, burning. A WATER TANK (are you freaking kidding?), a (probably industrial) DEHUMIDIFIER (which sucks air and evaporates the WATER in it) and a SALT WATER TANK (aw, come-on)!

Lotta vans burnin' up on this day, too.

    Wildfires all over the place out east here. On Scribbler's site, in the comments section yesterday, I recall seeing a map of large fire incidents for the U.S. and they're ALL in the southeast.

    Wildfires Rage Across Southern US, Scorching More Than 100,000 Acres

    Wildfires are burning in six states: North Carolina, which is the hardest hit, plus Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

    All told, there are more than 30 large fires that are still uncontained. Overall, 128,000 acres have gone up in flames — a land mass that's about nine times the size of Manhattan, more than four times the size of San Francisco... or the size of nearly 96,970 football fields. [more]
