Event Update For 2018-11-27

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.

2018-11-27 - Unknown rotten egg odor once again blows through Bristol (Britain), near the coast:

Quote: "The Environment Agency (EA) is investigating an 'unpleasant odour' in Bristol after receiving a number of complaints last night (November 26). The smell was reported in the Lyde Green area and one resident said it smelled like 'rotting eggs' and made his nose feel like it was burning."

Quote: "At the end of August and the beginning of September, a strange odour likened to rotting eggs or sewage was reported across the city."

2018-11-27 - Unknown gas smell evacuates school in Austin (Texas):

2018-11-27 - Three reports show we are heading toward the end of the world:

Note: We're already at the beginning of the end of the world. Things will just get progressively worse from here on out until there are no more living people on the surface of the Earth...

2018-11-27 - National climate plans, when you add everything up, will take us way beyond 3, potentially 4 degrees Celsius warming:

Note: It'll be way worse than that. They aren't factoring in the escalating methane feedbacks or most of the myriad other feedbacks. The fact is, if we turned off every power plant on the planet, today, and every car, plane and ship was left to rot, today, and every human being blew his or her head off with a shotgun, today, the warming would nevertheless continue and accelerate to way beyond 4C warming. We're not quite inconsequential - our burning coal and oil keeps 'global dimming' going, which is actually helping short-term even as it makes things more horrifyingly bad long-term. But all we have left to us now is short-term. 'Long-term' is not something with which we need to be concerned, since the human race won't be around on this planet for that...

2018-11-27 - Metal recycling center hit by fire, scrap cars and scrap metal burn, in Denver (Colorado):

Quote: "People have been pulled from the path of a monster bushfire after refusing to flee from the erratic and dangerous inferno that’s destroyed homes and razed thousands of hectares in central Queensland. Hundreds of firefighters are battling more than 80 fires across the state in unprecedented conditions with scorching temperatures predicted for Wednesday. Emergency services warn a 'horrendous' combination of climate, heat and fire were aligning to create extreme conditions 'never seen before in Queensland'. Andrew Sturgess, Predictive Services Inspector, QFES, said there was the potential for fire storms and house losses. 'We’ll see fire behaviour that we have never seen before,' Sturgess said."

Quote: "Thousands of Australians have been told to evacuate their homes as powerful bushfires threaten properties in Queensland. The state's fire danger warning has been raised to 'catastrophic' - the highest level - for the first time."

Note: Sheesh, just think how bad things could be in a few weeks once summer begins!

    Much Worse Than Expected: Experts Shocked As New Home Sales Plunge 8.9 Percent

    The U.S. economy is definitely deviating from the script, and we just got more evidence that “Housing Bubble 2” is bursting. Experts were expecting that new home sales in the U.S. would rise in October, but instead they plunged 8.9 percent. That number is far worse than anyone was projecting, and many in the real estate industry are really starting to freak out. And to be honest, things look like they are going to get even worse in 2019. One survey found that the percentage of Americans that plan to buy a home over the next 12 months has fallen by about half during the past year. Mortgage rates have steadily risen as the Federal Reserve has been hiking interest rates, and at this point most average Americans have been completely priced out of the market. Home prices are going to have to come way down from where they are right now, and just as we witnessed in 2008, rapidly falling home prices can put an extraordinary amount of stress on the financial system.

    It is hard for me to put into words just how bad this latest number is. Even though I write about our growing economic problems on a daily basis, even I didn’t expect to see a number anywhere near this bad. Sometimes a really bad number from one part of the U.S. can drag down the overall number, but that wasn’t the case this time. According to Reuters, there were “sharp declines in all four regions”

    it isn’t as if this latest report is coming out of nowhere. The truth is that new home sales have fallen in four of the last six months, and so a very clear trend is now developing. [more]

  2. Toxic waste from 22 coal plants in Illinois puts drinking water for nearby communities at risk, reports show

    CHICAGO - Toxic waste contaminates water sources near all but two of the coal-fired power plants in Illinois, according to a new analysis based largely on testing conducted by energy companies.

    The compilation of industry-supplied reports from 24 coal plants highlights how federal and state officials have failed for decades to hold corporations accountable for the millions of tons of ash and other harmful byproducts created by the burning of coal to generate electricity. [more]

    What caused mysterious strange seismic waves that shook the world on November 11th leaving scientists and experts baffled

    Mysterious, strange seismic waves that shook the world on November 11 are baffling researchers and has the internet buzzing.

    The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of a Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar. [more]

    A mysterious seismic wave rolled around the world for more than 20 minutes… And yet, it seems, no human felt them

    On the morning of November 11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world. The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away. These waves didn’t just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes. And yet, it seems, no human felt them. [more]
