Event Update For 2018-09-01

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.

2018-09-01 - Rotten egg odor spreads throughout Bristol (Britain), near the coast:

Quote: "An unpleasant odour has been lingering across Bristol this week - and authorities are at a loss to explain the stench. Residents living in the east of the city were the first to report the bizarre smell on Thursday, August 30. Bristol Live has been inundated with complaints since we published a story about a stench in Emersons Green. But today, September 1, people living in Henbury, Henleaze and Bedminster say they can now detected the unusual odour which smells similar to 'sewage, rotting eggs, sick or manure'. People have been forced to wind up their windows and remain indoors because the stench is making the air 'unbreathable'."

    'It’s not if, it’s when': the deadly pig disease spreading around the world’s-not-if-it’s-when-the-deadly-pig-disease-spreading-around-the-world/ar-BBMNUgj

    [ASF] Transmission occurs only through direct contact with infected animals (alive or dead) or meat – the virus is not airborne. However, it is hardy. It can survive for up to 1,000 days in frozen meat and can persist for long periods in boar carcasses, on clothing, boots and soil.

    In southern Europe, ticks provide an additional reservoir of virus. The disease travels via boar, or via sausages – at least one outbreak was traced to a roadside picnic with sausage meat left behind. [more; African Swine Flu]

    Has Robert Fanney ('Robertscribbler') been turned?

    What has happened to Robert Marston Fanney (aka "Robertscribbler")?

    What I in fact know is that Robertscribbler engages in almost the most extensive censorship on the comments section that I know. Anyone citing Guy McPherson was blocked from any comments on his blog.

    In fact, I would go a step further and say that anyone citing Paul Beckwith or Sam Carana or Prof. Peter Wadhams attracted a similar response.

    For me it came to a head in April 2016 when I tried to point out to him information that came from a source other than him.

    'Robertscribbler' spits in the face of the people of the Southern Hemisphere

    Since then I have been banned from commenting on his blog. [#MeToo]

    Unlike Margo who is untrained in climate change science but is able to use her detailed eye to look at the data and pick out what is actually there in front of her eyes, Robert Fanny uses his authority to give an unbelievably shallow report on the Arctic ice to underline his contention that this is the 5th or 6th lowest sea ice area on record and to avoid telling us just how damaged the ice is.

    he does not allow anyone other than his well-trained and sycophantic acolytes to comment.

    My thoughts have veered towards towards wondering if he has been 'bought' as happens so often these days. [more]
