Event Update For 2018-07-24

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.

Note: SOTT says, "We're witnessing similar events to those experienced during the Little Ice Age of the 18th century; drought as well as epic flooding amidst overall global cooling:" Yeah, well, there are some differences. For one, the planet is warming, not cooling, and what we're witnessing is a whole lot more similar to what occurred in the Permian-Triassic extinction event that wiped out most life on this planet. And in the 18th century, the permafrost wasn't melting, Greenland wasn't losing a billion tons of ice PER DAY from warming, there was no Northwest Passage because the Arctic ice had not yet disintegrated from warming, atmospheric methane and CO2 levels weren't skyrocketing, gigantic craters weren't appearing in Siberia from methane exploding out of the ground, and multiple coastal cities weren't investigating why their areas were being mysteriously hit by hydrogen sulfide. So other than being completely different in just about every way, sure, things are just like the 18th century! Derp...
