Event Update For 2018-06-07

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.

  1. Great job, Jonny! There's a TON of stuff to report today, so you'll be busy selecting what you want to post. Overall, though - it all leads to the same place.

    Lots of unexplained explosions going on, combined with a LONG list of residential buildings burning up, too many strange accidents (whereby the driver passes out or dies BEFORE the vehicle strikes something or rolls over), planes falling out of the sky, people dropping dead, water becoming ever more toxic to humanity, and other indications of our immanent demise (by a variety of factors, but SURELY H2S and CH4 are high on the list) occurring every day and listed HERE! You have a UNIQUE blog, Jonny. Thanks for keeping up this effort.

    Global sea level rise caused by fossil fuel burning is an issue that is creating worsening impacts to cities, nations, and civilization itself.

    The Globalized Seven. I Mean Six. Can I Hear Five?

    The protesters are out in force this weekend, as what remains of the G7 country club attempts to cobble together a narrative that explains away global disintegration. Globalization effectively ended in 2008, and what has followed is a fiscal and monetary gong show on a scale that would make the Japanese blush...

    Were Trump really serious about ending 70 years of U.S.-led economic exploitation home and abroad, I would be right in his corner. Alas, just as others have seen through his gimmickry, the "I want my cake and eat it too" approach to deconstructing the global Jenga pile, is a tad too plainly Trumptonian. The mere fact that he's stacked his cabinet with Goldman Sachs alumni is testament to his betrayal of stated values - a now long-standing Republican Party tradition. He must make a clear choice between the country or the multinational-controlled stock market. Meaning he has to put the 99% ahead of the 1%. The fact that he is in the 1%, makes that Twitter-assisted fantasy quintessentially impossible. Sorry Steve Bannon. [more]

    Bizarre sea creature washes ashore on Namibian beach

    A weird 20-foot-long decomposing carcass was found washed up on a beach in Namibia, drawing speculation over just what animal the remains derive from.

    Toxic Border Pollution Sickens U.S. Border Patrol Agents

    The pungent, salty air that emerged over South Bay communities last February was not a familiar whiff of wrack decomposing on our favorite beaches. In fact, it was the estimated 143 million gallons of raw sewage that raced down the rugged canyons of Tijuana, funneling directly through the mouth of the Tijuana River into the Pacific Ocean. Beachgoers, visitors, and residents of San Diego County have suffered the devastating effects of these spills for decades—yet little has been done to remedy the origins. [more]
