Event Update For 2016-12-22

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.

2016-12-22 - Workers hit pocket of hydrogen sulfide in the ground in coastal Corpus Christi (Texas):

Quote: "A number of people were told to stay in their homes during a gas leak scare on the southside this evening. It happened near a neighborhood off Tiger Lane, not too far from Yeager Elementary. It all started when a crew was drilling into the ground to get some soil samples. That's when they hit a pocket of Hydrogen Sulfide gas, which smells like rotten egg and is extremely hazardous. We're told the crew left the drill in the ground to contain the gas as much as possible, then called the fire department, which along with police, asked nearby residents to stay in their homes."

Note: Yikes. So you can be walking along around there and a cloud of hydrogen sulfide burps from the ground and kills you. Sounds similar to the hydrogen sulfide found in the ground in Chinchilla (Australia), last mentioned in the 2015-04-13 update. No cause was ever found for why there's hydrogen sulfide in the ground there...
