Event Update For 2018-10-25

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.

2018-10-25 - Hydrogen sulfide leaking out of sewers in Edmonton (Canada), could take 25 years to fix:

Quote: "'Hydrogen sulphide trying to get out of the system is what's causing the odour issues above ground.' He said EPCOR's mitigation plan looks at ways to reduce gas and regulate how it's released. In London, for example, vent stacks placed at certain intervals release air at higher elevations, he said. The 25-year scenario, targeting the worst spots first, is estimated to cost $460 million."

Note: Might not even be worth bothering with fixing it at this point, since everybody may very well be dead by the time they could fix it, if not much sooner than that, and dead people won't care how bad the smell is. But hey, it'd give people something to do until they fall over dead or burn to death or whatnot, so that's a plus!

That's how Gerald Herbert describes the enigmatic stench that has repeatedly invaded Harahan and River Ridge for more than a year, and that residents say has triggered asthma attacks, headaches and nose bleeds. Retreating indoors provides no escape. 'It comes into your home while you’re sleeping. It will wake you up at night in your own bedroom,' Herbert said. "

    Stock Market Plunges Again – Global Stocks Down 5 Weeks In A Row – 8 Trillion Dollars In Wealth Wiped Out

    It’s not over. The worst October stock market crash since 2008 got even worse on Friday. The Dow was down another 296 points, the S&P 500 briefly dipped into correction territory, and it was another bloodbath for tech stocks. On Wednesday, I warned that there would be a bounce, and we saw that happen on Thursday. But the bounce didn’t extend into Friday. Instead, we witnessed another wave of panic selling, and that has many investors extremely concerned about what will happen next week. Overall, global stocks have now fallen for five weeks in a row, and during that time more than 8 trillion dollars in global wealth has been wiped out. That is the fastest plunge in global stock market wealth since the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and it is yet another confirmation that a major turning point has arrived.

    The wild swings up and down that we witnessed this week are very reminiscent of what we saw in 2008. [more]

  2. Imagined Realities 2018: The Downside Of Denial

    Those who've adopted denial as a way of life are about to be disabused of their newfound belief system. The downside of "imagined realities", is never seeing the freight train coming...

    But first, Wall Street is out reassuring nervous clients. The party isn't over, we're just playing a new game now:

    "I don't think the party is over. I think what we are seeing is a transition in regimes, one from where markets were comforted by ample, predictable liquidity to now having to recognize that divergent fundamentals are going to be the driver of asset prices."

Also, temperatures will be cold enough to allow heavy snow in the higher elevations of northern New England and New York state. [more]
