Event Update For 2018-05-23

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.

2018-05-23 - Rotting seaweed producing hydrogen sulfide around coastal Warnbro Sound (Australia):

Quote: "'Hydrogen sulphide can be smelled at very low levels, well below the level where it causes any health effects, so simply smelling it is not a health issue. Based on the volume of wrack usually present in Warnbro Sound, the maximum level of hydrogen sulphide generated is extremely unlikely to pose any risk to human health.'"

Quote: "However, the spokesman said these odours were a short term problem which resolve quickly and were not detrimental to health."

Note: Not true: nobody knows what the long term effects are to human health of smelling even small quantities of hydrogen sulfide regularly. Also, just because they're measuring low concentrations doesn't mean a whole lot, since it's a heavier-than-air gas which will flow to - and then concentrate in - low-lying areas. Might it concentrate enough to create lethal clouds of gas? It doesn't take much to be lethal; 1 part per 1000 can kill a person with one breath. I certainly wouldn't rule out the possibility that it could concentrate to 0.1% hydrogen sulfide levels in low-lying areas when there's no wind and then blow onward at concentrated levels with the wind...

2018-05-23 - Unknown rotten egg odor hitting parts of coastal Timaru (New Zealand):

Quote: "Aoraki Swim School operator Kevin Hessell described it as a 'pungent smell combined with the smell of LPG'."

Note: LPG is odorless so they add methyl or ethyl mercaptan to it, which smells like rotten eggs. So does hydrogen sulfide, which is most likely to hit towns near bodies of water, like oceans, like this city...
