Event Update For 2017-09-13

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.

    Swells and Rough Surf from Jose Heading to U.S. East Coast

    Tropical Storm Jose is predicted to restrengthen into a hurricane and arc just off the east coast of U.S. and Canada early next week. Chances are slim that the storm will make landfall, but it’s a good bet that coastal communities from the mid-Atlantic to the Canadian Maritimes will feel Jose’s presence. Meanwhile, there are four other potential landfalls across the North Pacific from Vietnam to Mexico over the next 3-5 days. [more]

    When two disasters saved Earth from a worse one

    It is well known that the Pinatubo eruption, which killed around 800 people and left 10,000 homeless, ejected so much dust into the atmosphere that it had a major effect on climate, depressing global temperatures by around 0.5°C for a couple of years.

    Along with all the magma and ash, vast quantities of hydrogen chloride were pumped out of Pinatubo. Had this hydrogen chloride reached the stratosphere it would have initiated chemical reactions with chlorine (which is increased thanks to all chlorofluorocarbons – CFCs – we have pumped out) and massively thinned Earth’s ozone layer.

    But luckily Typhoon Yunya powered its way through the eruption plume and washed most of the hydrogen chloride out before it got anywhere near the stratosphere. [more; includes short video]
