Event Update For 2017-12-05

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.

    Students were evacuated. One male student said he freaked out when his friend pointed out the boars running about and that they charged at people.

    The two boars were shot with a tranquilizer gun and caught in nets.

    This new simple method could purge our Oceans from the most dangerous radioactive Cesium-137 released by the Fukushima disaster in sea waters

    A new and efficient way to extract 137Cs from sea ​​water was developed by scientists of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) and the Institute of Chemistry of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (FEB RAS). The present method concentrates  cesium with an efficiency of up to 99%. Sorbents are natural chitosan from the shells of marine animals (crabs, shrimps and others) and the chemical nickel-potassium ferrocyanide, which forms an insoluble precipitate when reacting with Cesium. The development was tested during the international marine expedition in the Atlantic Ocean “ACE Maritime University.“

    Energy Minister’s Fracking Defence Ignores Research
    Mungall, Liberal critics silent on risks of water contamination and methane leaks, despite science.

    But concerns about fracking don’t end with water contamination and unprecedented earthquake-making activity. They include the fragmentation of forests, the industrialization of agricultural lands, gas migration, and the violation of First Nations’ rights and treaties. There are also growing public health concerns about people who live near fracking operations.

    But Mungall made no mention of these issues. Nor did she address the hot button issue: the leakage of methane from wells that have been hydraulically fractured.

    Researchers estimate that leakage rates greater than three per cent of what is extracted from shale gas basins make methane a fuel as dirty as coal in terms of destabilizing impacts on the climate.

    The methane leakage problem has now reached a crisis point. Canada is the world’s fourth largest emitter of methane from oil and gas installations and about 70 per cent of those emissions come from B.C. and Alberta. [more]
