Event Update For 2018-09-22

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.

2018-09-22 - Unknown gas knocks transit bus driver unconscious in Chicago (Illinois):

Quote: "According to witnesses, the driver had pulled over because the bus was filled with fumes that they believed to be carbon monoxide.

2018-09-22 - Scientist proposes we build 1,000-foot underwater walls to stop Antarctic ice sheet collapse:

Note: Not a bad idea at first glance. But he's only considering the bad effects of Antarctic ice loss - the rise in sea level. There is also a beneficial effect - the ice entering the ocean helps keep the oceans cooler, which helps the oceans retain oxygen, which helps prevent the ancient anaerobic bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide from running amok. So keeping the ice on Antarctica would mean the oceans heat up faster which would result in us all getting gassed to death or burning to death sooner. Pluses and minuses! It'd give people some work to do though - jobs! - and I'm skeptical whether it's even a doable project, technologically, so if they wanna try it, eh, why not. The ice will still melt in time anyway though, the old-fashioned way, via rising air temperatures. Underwater walls won't stop that...

  1. Here's an interesting Doomsday Website....

    "This web site is sponsored by retired scientists, engineers and instructors from NASA, Stanford University, Genetech, the White Sands Missile Range, Edison, Bechtel, Westinghouse, Fluor, GE, Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Aramco, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, Russian and American Nanotechnologists, Astrophysicists, Astrobiologists and Oceanographers.
    Pay attention or don't."

    1. On the above site when you click to the 'Our History' tab you'll come to a page with some line items under this heading:

      There is no 2050. Even reaching 2030 is highly unlikely.

      Note the g. line:

      Crime, kidnapping, murder and martial law will rule the day until plankton levels, already at 50%, will die off further in our anoxic oceans, causing our oxygen supply to shrink to deadly levels worldwide, while hydrogen sulfide gas, more toxic than cyanide, blankets coastal areas, killing millions even faster.

  2. Interesting site, reasonably on the mark, but I'd ignore the 'buy a boat' advice unless you're wanting to sail into H2SLand. Heh.

    1. Yeah I just gloss over anything about "how to survive" nonsense. Why in the living hell would anyone WANT to be a "survivalist" in the shitstorm that is coming? I just don't get it.

      My plan is simple.... D-I-E

      No garden books on how to grow taking classes to learn tactical fighting bug-out mountain retreat....

      All of that just sounds so complicated and fatiguing. Just go with the flow and die. Preferably on your own terms, if lucky.

    2. Still some time to cross some stuff off your bucket list. I did that in early 2011 and I'm glad I did. Not really 'saving for a rainy day' anymore - it's raining now, so carpe some diem!

    3. Oh sure by all means do the ol' bucket list. I just mean if one lives to when things really get nasty and people are dropping left and right then any effort made to prepare for "survival" will seem futile and ridiculous. Of course the guys who are doing the above site, as tuned in as they are, don't know how bad the H2S situation already is and that it is already killing lots of people around the world. And they don't know just how close we are to millions dropping dead at a time, day after day, all around the world until there ain't no mo left to drop.

    4. Yeah, that's what I thought too - what they see as COMING is already, to at least a fair degree, ALREADY OCCURRING. But it's not that easy to see, and they never asked this question: if the H2S portion of events has already begun, what would we expect to see? You fill in that blank and then ask the question, 'Is that stuff here now?' And the answer is yes, it sure is. They may die from the very thing they're expecting to see happen LATER without ever realizing that it's ALREADY BEGUN. Which is pretty ironic.

  3. Hello to everyone today. Good stuff Mike!

    arctic cauldron
    Across the Arctic, lakes are leaking dangerous greenhouse gases. And one lake is behaving very strangely.

    Set against the austere peaks of the Western Brooks Range, the lake, about 20 football fields in size, looked as if it was boiling. Its waters hissed, bubbled and popped as a powerful greenhouse gas escaped from the lake bed. Some bubbles grew as big as grapefruits, visibly lifting the water’s surface several inches and carrying up bits of mud from below.

    This was methane. [more]
