Event Update For 2018-11-11

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.

2018-11-11 - Greenland expelling significant amounts of methane into the atmosphere as Greenland's ice melts away from global warming:

Quote: "During a 2016 field expedition to the West Greenland Ice Sheet, a striking observation of significantly elevated CH4 concentrations of up to 15 times the background atmospheric concentration were measured directly in the air expelled with meltwater at a subglacial discharge point from the Greenland Ice Sheet. The range of hourly subglacial CH4 flux rate through the discharge point was estimated to be 3.1 to 134?g CH4 hr-1. These measurements are the first observations of direct emissions of CH4 from the subglacial environment under the Greenlandic Ice Sheet to the atmosphere and indicate a novel emission pathway of CH4 that is currently a non-quantified component of the Arctic CH4 budget."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback - more methane entering the atmosphere warms the planet yet more, resulting in more melting ice in Greenland, which releases more methane, and so on and so on. Greenland is already losing a billion TONS of ice PER DAY from global warming...

2018-11-11 - Wildfire grows to 111,000 acres in and around Paradise (California), death toll rises to 29, 220+ people still missing:

Quote: "The death toll from wildfires raging in California rose to 31 on Sunday after six more people were found killed in what was poised to become the deadliest wildfire in state history. Officials said the bodies of five people were found in their burned-out homes and the sixth was found in a vehicle in northern California’s Camp Fire, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told reporters on Sunday evening. More than 200 people are still unaccounted for, Honea said."

Quote: "The Camp Fire became the most destructive wildfire in California history less than 48 hours after igniting. The death toll matches the 1933 Griffith Park Fire, which is the state's deadliest fire. The fire had charred 111,000 acres and was 25 percent contained as of Sunday evening, according to Cal Fire."

The greater danger is getting trapped in an enclosed space — a crevice or crack — where concentrations of the gas can knock a person unconscious and, at worst, kill them."

    Massive Woolsey Fire Began On Contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory, Close to Site of Partial Meltdown

    Electric Substation at SSFL Tripped 2 Minutes Before Fire Reported
    For Immediate Release: November 12, 2018

    The tremendously destructive Woolsey Fire has been widely reported as beginning “near” the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL or Rocketdyne), but it appears that the fire began on the Rocketdyne property itself. Cal Fire identifies the fire location as E Street and Alfa Road, a location that is in fact on SSFL. It was recently reported that the “Chatsworth electric substation” experienced a disturbance 2 minutes before the fire was reported, but that substation is in fact on SSFL, near that location. A photograph posted on Twitter from KCAL9’s Stu Mundel shows the fire starting Thursday afternoon near the same location, which is only about 1,000 yards away from the site of the 1959 partial nuclear meltdown of the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE) reactor.

  2. Camp Fire now deadliest and most destructive in California history

    Camp Fire has exploded in size since November 8, 2018, and is now the deadliest and most destructive individual wildfire in California history. On November 12, the death toll climbed to 31 [higher as of this morning] and there are still 121 people missing. [more]

    This Wasn’t Supposed To Happen…

    We have definitely deviated from the script. According to virtually all of the “experts”, the stock market was not supposed to keep plummeting in November. This was supposed to be the month when the market calmed down and things returned to normal. But instead, November is starting to look a whole lot like October, and many investors are really starting to freak out. U.S. stocks declined for a third day in a row on Monday, and all post-election gains have now been completely wiped out. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost another 602 points, and all of these large daily losses are really starting to add up. It may still be a bit too early to call this a “major financial crisis”, but if stock prices keep plunging like this it won’t be too long before all hell starts breaking loose on Wall Street. [more]

    Betting The Farm On Denial Trump

    Even Wall Street knows this is all over. Now only the most hardcore denialists are clinging to this gong show - the ones who will believe ANYTHING, EXCEPT the truth. Imagine literally betting the farm on the biggest fucking tool in human history. There is no coming back from that.

    Meanwhile, what happens when we reach third wave down in every global risk asset class at the same time? We're about to find out. Every day is the same pattern - the market opens at the highs of the day and closes at the lows of the day. Typical bear market action. And also why the smart money flow indicator is showing record outflow. The dumb money keeps buying the dip and it's no longer working. These people have been lied to so much, they are incapable of believing that the party is over...

    "Market bulls continue to see strong U.S. GDP growth, a tight labor market and surging corporate profits.

    The factors lining up against the market are formidable: slowing growth, peaking profits and the global trade war."

    Add in rising interest rates, imploding Emerging markets, recession stocks leading the rally, Tech wreck, and imploding commodities.

    The dumb money bubble is the last bubble on the planet. This slope of fake hope which keeps the market stair-stepping towards crash.[more]

  4. Here in central Texas we went from temperatures in the mid 80s to a low in the mid 20s tonight. Even in the city it is probably going to get down in the 20s with a stiff wind. It will not get above 40 today during daylight. This is very,very cold for mid November down here. Look on a map and see just how far south Austin is.

    Of course this is yet another example of a whacky jet stream. I know the adapt 2030 goombahs are probably very satisfied with the early frigged weather this year. If you take a drink every time they say 'Maunder Minimum' you'll get quite drunk within five minutes. Here in Texas I think we'll be colder than normal until the end of December. Then the El Nino will be kicking in and we'll probably have an early spring. Wouldn't surprise me if we see quite a few days in the 80s in Feb.

    On the CA fires....Shit!! I think I've become so jaded to the fires that I haven't really appreciated how bad they are until yesterday. It has happened so fast! With all the record breaking fires this decade and in just a few days these have already broken records. It doesn't look like it's going to stop either.

    Jonny could this be the real beginning of the end for CA? I think it just might be. Obviously both H2S and CH4 are the reason why these fires are so horrific. Mass exodus out of CA will be in full force in 2019 I believe. Mass death too most likely. Many may drop dead while trying to drive out of there. Those who don't burn first, that is.

  5. Yeah, Mike, I dunno - I mean, if it's fire after fire after fire in California like these current ones, then this is the beginning of the end and people will start to 'self-evacuate'. Some folks with the ability to extrapolate current conditions into the future probably already are, quietly and one by one or family by family. I guess we won't really know except in retrospect, but there's no doubt about it, these fires are getting monstrously deadly and destructive in California.

  6. Good morning all....
    Well, I got a nice dusting of snow Monday with a wind chill in the teens. Woke up to a lovely 18 degrees today. Its looking like by Friday we'll be seeing highs in the 60's.
