2017-04-11 - Global warming could thaw far more permafrost than expected:

Quote: "There is already significant evidence that the tundra is starting to break up with a massive crater known as the Gateway to the Underworld growing in Siberia at an alarming rate."

Quote: "But scientists do agree that Arctic permafrost has a formidable potential to affect the climate. Estimates suggest that the amount of carbon it contains may be up twice the amount of carbon currently housed in the atmosphere."

Note: So there's the equivalent of almost 800 ppm of carbon dioxide locked up in the permafrost, which has already started to significantly melt away. If that were added to the 400 ppm we already have in the atmosphere, that'd be 1200 ppm, or 200 ppm more than what scientists have estimated was present in the atmosphere for the Permian-Triassic extinction event, called The Great Dying. So this is another sign that a repeat of the Permian-Triassic extinction is underway now. This may be how it began back then too - volcanic eruptions burned a bunch of coal (instead of humans, but the source is irrelevant to the Earth), the CO2 levels hit 400-ish ppm, the Earth heated up and melted the permafrost which kicked the levels up to 1000+ ppm, and the oceans and seas went anoxic enough to spew enough hydrogen sulfide into the seas and the atmosphere to kill off 96% of all ocean species and 70% of all land species. So yeah, that's what's coming our way, and it has already begun.

And the permafrost isn't even the only source of greenhouse gases. There are numerous oceanic methane clathrate deposits that are ALSO now melting, off both the US East and West Coasts, off the coast of New Zealand, in the sea near Svalbard, etc, so we may see WORSE than 'The Great Dying'. Well, WE won't see it, because we'll all be long gone way before it gets that bad. But the EARTH may see worse than 'The Great Dying', and it took 30 million years to fully recover from that, so it may take 35 or 40 million years for the Earth to fully recover after the current extinction event has run its course...

Shockingly, the Dissolved Oxygen (DO) levels are found to be less than even 1 milligrams/litre (mg/l), or at best between 1-1.5 mg/l in most of the water bodies in Hyderabad where water quality parameters are being regularly monitored by the Telangana State Pollution Control Board."

Quote: "As per the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), water bodies having dissolved oxygen concentration less than 2 mg/l are known as Hypoxic zones or as 'dead zones' because such conditions cannot sustain life."

Note: Oh, they can sustain life, just not oxygen-using life. The ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that eat biomatter like garbage and feces and produce hydrogen sulfide prefer waters like this, with little or no oxygen. That kind of life will do just fine in these bodies of water...

At least four firefighters were seen entering the Verizon store shortly after with gas masks and oxygen tanks.

2017-04-15 - Iconic bridge from 'Bridges of Madison County' destroyed by fire at 6 AM in Madison County (Iowa):

Quote: "There was no electricity or light source at the bridge and no severe weather or lightning in the area, so the fire will be investigated as arson, Madison County Sheriff Jason Barnes said."

Note: I'd suspect arson too if I didn't have a clue what was happening on this planet, but having seen piles of wood, trees, baled paper, cardboard and pallets burst into flame, there's obviously no reason a bridge made of wood and nails couldn't do the same thing. This bridge goes over Cedar Creek, just east (downwind) of Cedar Lake. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...

2017-04-16 - University hit by unknown 'noxious odor' in Buffalo (New York):

Quote: "Furnas Hall on the University at Buffalo's North Campus was evacuated just before 7 p.m. Sunday amid reports of a possible leak of methane gas in the 10-story building. A UB spokesperson said the building, which houses the departments of Chemical Engineering and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, was declared safe following a search and reopened late Sunday night. Authorities said several students in a fifth-floor chemical lab had noticed the 'noxious odor' and summoned UB police, prompting a search of the building by hazmat crews, who found no gas leaks and determined the building was safe."

Note: Why would they think it was methane? Methane is odorless...

2017-04-16 - Methane levels rising rapidly in the atmosphere:

Quote: "The great concern is the rapid rise, over the last three years, in methane levels in the atmosphere. Methane is a gas with 28 times the planet-heating power of carbon dioxide. Scientists estimate there may be as much as 5 trillion tonnes of it locked in permafrost and seabed deposits."

Quote: "Reports of methane escaping into the atmosphere have been growing steadily, ever since a group of students demonstrated the risks by setting fire to venting Arctic gas in 2008. However, scientists report a sudden surge in global methane emissions in the last three years, 2014-16."

Quote: "So far the rise in methane has been attributed mainly to cattle raising, rice farming and gas extraction – but there is now disturbing evidence that more gas is emerging from Arctic soils as the permafrost melts, and from the seabed where methane has been trapped as ice for millions of years. Russian scientists have reported the discovery of thousands of potential 'methane-bombs' – frozen gas-filled mounds – across Siberia, primed to erupt as the ground thaws out. Swedish scientists have observed the waters of the Artic oceans 'fizzing like soda water' as the ocean waters warm, causing frozen seabed methane to turn back into gas and erupt."

Note: That's right, the Earth is loading up her planetary-scale firebomb guns and preparing to wipe us off the surface of the Earth...

The changes typically took decades to generations, but at their most extreme, they only took two to three years."

2017-04-17 - Giant shipworms that eat hydrogen sulfide found alive for the first time, in the Philippine Islands:

Quote: "Scientists have found live specimens of the rare giant shipworm for the first time in the Philippines."

Quote: "Other shipworms contain bacteria in their guts that break down cellulose, the stiff material of which plant cell walls are made. An investigation by the researchers, including Margo Haygood of the University of Utah College of Pharmacy, shows that Kuphus polythalamia don’t contain large amounts of these bacteria, nor do they have other shipworms’ hefty quantities of woody pulp in their guts. Rather, these giant weirdos contain a trove of unique bacteria that actually feast upon hydrogen sulfide. This gas, which to humans reeks of rotten eggs, is produced by festering wood and other rotting organic material in the seafloor."

Quote: "The six-foot mollusc lives in stinking mud and in a symbiotic relationship with chemosynthetic bacteria that feed on hydrogen sulfide gas, writes Andrew Masterson."

Note: These things are part of the ancient ecosystem that existed long before there were any mammals. As the current extinction event progresses, the Earth is reverting back to a more primeval state...
