Event Update For 2016-12-23

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.

2016-12-23 - Rotten egg smell hits homes in coastal Tampa (Florida), blamed on odorant:

Note: They use mercaptan to add a rotten egg odor to natural gas, which is normally odorless. But even if this WAS mercaptan, mercaptan is essentially the same as hydrogen sulfide: flammable, poisonous, neurotoxic. As per this CDC document: "Because no useful data on acute inhalation toxicity are available on which to base the IDLH for methyl mercaptan, the chosen IDLH is based on an analogy with hydrogen sulfide. ACGIH [1971] reported that some investigators show toxicities of the same magnitude for hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan [Ljunggren and Norberg 1943]; others indicate that the toxicity of methyl mercaptan is somewhat less than that of hydrogen sulfide [DeRekowski 1893; Frankel 1921]."

So maybe it's not QUITE as deadly as hydrogen sulfide, but either way, these homes just got hit by poison gas of one kind or another. It couldn't have been very concentrated, or they'd all be dead, but still, breathing deadly poison gas is not apt to be good for you, even if it's not concentrated...

2016-12-23 - US melanoma rate rising:

Quote: "More Americans are developing the potentially deadly skin cancer known as melanoma than in the past, new research shows. In 2016, one out of every 54 Americans was expected to develop a potentially lethal, invasive melanoma over their lifetime -- up from the one in 58 estimate when the same tally was performed in 2009."

Note: The atmosphere's UV protection is being reacted away. That makes the Sun look whiter because more 'blue' light is getting through. That causes melanoma. Back when AH was a boy, the Sun was yellow. Not anymore. The extra UV also causes more mutations, more two-headed babies and animals, more albinism, more genetic chimeras, that kind of thing - DNA/RNA damage. This problem will eventually be bad enough that crops won't grow. One way to prolong life as we know it would be for large numbers of planes to spray the skies in grid patterns with chemicals that block UV, especially between the Sun and population centers and croplands, much like the grid patterns used in radiation protection screens on microwaves but on a bigger scale. Ever really watch the skies in the last decade? Lots of grid patterns in the skies. That's not only not a coincidence, that's a desperation measure, a last-ditch effort to buy us a little time, and one not without detrimental side effects of its own...

    Children of Men, ten years later

    Ten years ago today, Children of Men, the brilliant, dystopian science fiction film, debuted in the United States. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, Children of Men portrays Britain in the year 2027 as the last bastion of civilization standing against the imminent extinction of the human species. In 2006, Cuarón told the Seattle Times, “the stuff that you see on the screen is nothing but a reference of stuff that has been happening on this planet in the last five years or so.”
    So, what happened in the following decade? Was Children of Men a prescient vision of the future?

    Yes, in two important ways: the plight of refugees, and the concomitant rise of brutal, authoritarian governance. [more]
