Event Update For 2018-02-18

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.

It all fits, it's totally rational (no magic or voodoo needed, 'cause it's spooky enough on its own)! People dropping dead, heat from below, volcanos and earthquakes, infrastructure damage, accidents and building collapses, medical emergencies and planes having problems staying aloft (and MORE).

    Puzzling change in Southern Ocean revealed by CSIRO

    Researchers aboard an Australian ship undertaking pioneering work in the Southern Ocean have found the "first hint" of a shift in a decades-long trend towards fresher, less dense water off Antarctica.

    "Every time we've measured since the 1970s, [bottom water's] been becoming lighter and fresher," Steve Rintoul, the voyage chief scientist, told Fairfax Media on Monday as the ship took its final ocean profile.

    "We've got the first hint now that maybe things are shifting back to becoming saltier and denser in the deepest part of the ocean," said Dr Rintoul, who is a senior researcher at CSIRO and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems (ACE) CRC.

    Dr Rintoul said "this increase in salinity still brings levels to nowhere near where they were in the 1970s ... nor even into the 1990s". The trend of warming of those waters has not changed. [more]

    Sea level change is a problem for all coastlines, and the seaports on them

    But the solution to that problem at one port is the problem at another port

    According to the graphics and information provided by Professor Mitrovica of Harvard, all of the sea ports in Iceland will go dry

    The same can be said of all the ports in Greenland

    New Zealand has been ravaged by former Cyclone Gita, which brought 15m waves, more than 300mm of rain, and wind gusts above 130km/h – and it is not over yet. The system has split in two – caught up by the Southern Alps – and the main low is now hovering near Banks Peninsula and another is to the west. The mountains held up the lower parts of the system as it moved across the country, while the upper parts moved past. Christchurch, Buller District, Grey District, Selwyn, Westland, Tasman and Taranaki declared a state of emergency yesterday as the powerful storm arrived through the day, causing flooding, destroying buildings and closing roads.

    The Jobless Consumer Shrugged

    All nations rise and fall based upon their junk ideologies. The definition of insanity is trusting the same psychopaths over and over again, each time expecting a different result...

    The jobless consumer is the mythical Ayn Randian protagonist and beneficiary of all *Free* trade agreements. This incredible individual is able to withstand serial job/income "right sizing" and boom/bust cycles while maintaining his/her prior spending, merely by borrowing themselves into oblivion. It's the dumbest fucking idea ever conceived, but then again look who we're dealing with.

    Today, Walmart confirmed that the jobless consumer is tapped out. It appears that Trump's tax cut "plink" and collapsing personal savings rate were not enough to offset rising interest rates at the end of the credit cycle. Who knew? Not one economist, we know that much. [more]
