2017-11-03 - Unknown 'sweet odor' hits area in Valdosta (Georgia):

Quote: "'At 7:10 pm a citizen called 911 to report an unidentifiable odor in the area of Clay and Howell Roads. According to Lowndes County Emergency Management Director, Ashley Tye, multiple public safety agencies are currently conducting an investigation to determine the origin of the odor. As a precaution, citizens in the area are being asked to remain inside with doors and windows closed.'"

Quote: "Paulk stated the odor was reportedly 'sweet smelling' but dissipated before the source could be found."

Note: At LOW concentrations hydrogen sulfide smells like rotten eggs. At non-trivial concentrations many people report the smell as 'flowery' or 'sweet' or 'sickly sweet' or like 'licorice' and sometimes just 'chemically'. I've smelled that odor myself, twice. Once was when some workers were pumping crap out of some porta-potties into an open sewer manhole at a construction site, and the other time I smelled it was during the wee hours just walking down a street, and there was no logical source for it that time other than that there was simply a cloud of poison gas blowing by in the atmosphere. In both cases I immediately held my breath, turned 90 degrees and got as far away as I could before taking another breath. When it smells 'sweet', that's when you may be in imminent danger of dying. You'd think that such a deadly poisonous gas would smell just horrible at ANY concentration, but it really doesn't smell that bad at higher concentrations, which makes it even more insidious. And your ability to smell it fades rapidly too, because of 'olfactory fatigue' or 'olfactory paralysis', which makes it yet more insidious.

The most insidious aspect of all though is that you can get poisoned on one day but not drop dead until 2 or 3 days later, which makes it very easy for 'the authorities' to disguise the deaths as 'natural causes' or 'heart attacks' or 'Sudden Adult Death Syndrome' or 'untimely death', and that also makes the poisoning/dying look somewhat more random than it actually is. Of course, because hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble, contaminated water can kill you too, and you may very well have no smell at all to warn you in that case. Any water that comes from a source that's exposed to the atmosphere could be contaminated now, including rainwater, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceans, wells, even municipal water supplies. Another insidious way to die is this: 1) a cloud of gas blows through, probably in the wee hours, and coats matter like grass, vehicles, railings, trash, doorknobs, etc, via adsorption; 2) you touch that invisibly-contaminated matter, getting invisible poison on your fingers/hands; 3) you eat food or rub your eyes with your contaminated fingers/hands. And you still may not drop dead for 2 or 3 days. You definitely won't smell it when you're smearing poison onto your fingers/hands by touching something that itself has poison smeared on it, which could be pretty much anything nowadays, especially outdoor stuff.

Don't expect your government to tell you anything about this. They can't protect you, so it's to their advantage if you're ignorant of what's happening - or at least remain quiet about what's happening - and die randomly like everyone else. That's the status quo and they aren't going to disturb it. Of course, the wheels do fall off that wagon of deception at some point, regardless, since there's no way people are going to remain oblivious until the very last person dies. It's really just a question of how many people will still be alive when people wake up. And on a personal level, it's a question of whether YOU will still be alive - and whether you would even want to be - when people wake up.

Quote: "The reason for the difference in climate response between 1815 and 2085 is tied to the oceans, which are expected to become more stratified as the planet warms, and therefore less able to moderate the climate impacts caused by volcanic eruptions."

Note: Interesting, but volcanic aerosols provide only temporary cooling in any case. The VEI7 eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 only cooled the planet by 1C or 2C for one year. That was enough to cause widespread starvation from crop failures though...

2017-11-08 - Hydrogen sulfide blowing around in Birmingham and Royal Oak (Michigan), near the Rouge River:

Quote: "There’s something foul in Birmingham and Royal Oak. Just ask the hundreds of residents who’ve flooded the phone lines of the Birmingham and Royal Oak fire departments along with Consumers Energy in the last few weeks reporting a gas smell. Royal Oak assistant Fire Chief Jim Cook says an odor of gas can be detected when crews go out to investigate but when Consumers arrives with it’s equipment, no gas leak can be found. Most of the calls are in the area of 14 mile and Coolidge, west of Crooks and East of Woodward."

Quote: "Cook says after weeks of searching they believe the culprit is hydrogen sulfide. A common sewer gas which at low levels may not present a health threat, but at higher levels can be deadly."

Note: Like I've said numerous times, people are confusing the smell of the additive added to natural gas, methyl mercaptan, with the smell of hydrogen sulfide. This is another example of that...

2017-11-09 - Mapping how to feed 9 billion humans, while avoiding environmental calamity:

Note: We've already got widespread environmental calamity, and we're not likely to ever see a population of 9 billion people. If we DO then the additional population is 100% additional overshoot and that's just an extra 2 billion people who are gonna die. In fact, every single child born now is another person who's gonna die. Even if we can somehow save this child or that child, that just means someone else we would've been able to save will die instead, if indeed we can provide a viable future for anyone at all. Adding more people at this point does not add to the number of people we could keep alive, even assuming that is a positive number. Adding more people now merely adds to the number of people who will be dying...

Other neighbors reported smelling the stink as far west as 24th Street, and all the way to 48th Street to the east between Pecos Road and Chandler Boulevard.

In the case of this weekend's storm, the pressure dropped an incredible 55 millibars in 24 hours (1002 millibars 10 p.m. Friday Alaska time to 947 millibars 10 p.m. Saturday Alaska time). The pressure reading continued to drop and was at 944 millibars early Sunday, making it the strongest storm on Earth based on pressure at that time."
