Event Update For 2019-01-24

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.

    There were 281 climate-related and geophysical events recorded in the EM-DAT (International Disaster Database) in 2018.

There were a number of major disasters in certain regions, however, there were no mega-disasters which inflate yearly averages, such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) who manages EM-DAT said. Earthquakes and tsunamis accounted for the majority of the 10 373 lives lost. [more]

    Here is Margo's latest report on methane in the Arctic and earthquakes.

    We are recording methane data almost every day because the situation is developing fast and data is removed every few days and so needs to be recorded for later comparison

    Scientists confirm warming seas around New Zealand

    The water in the New Zealand region is significantly warmer than it was 30 years ago, and all indications are the warming trend will continue, said a NIWA scientist.

    Oceanographer Dr Phil Sutton is the lead author on a scientific paper published today, that analyses ocean temperature changes around New Zealand for the last 36 years.

    He said the strongest warming near NZ has occurred off the Wairarapa Coast, and the weakest along the northeast coast between North and East Capes.

    The increased warmth isn't only at the surface – around New Zealand the increased warmth penetrates in places to 200m deep while in the Tasman Sea it reaches down to at least 850m. [more]

    17 Insane Facts About “Math 55,” the Hardest Math Class at Harvard [see 18-panel slide show for details]

    Considered the toughest undergrad math class at Harvard—and by that assessment, very likely the toughest in the world—Math 55 is not for the faint of heart.

    Math 55 is like a full-time job—plus overtime.

    According to a freshman guide to Harvard’s Mathematics Department, there are two first-year math courses, the hardest one being Math 55. You could take Math 21, which is taught by graduate students and where homework usually takes a reasonable three to six hours per week. Or, you could opt to take Math 55—which gives you 10 times the amount of homework. ”Problem sets can take anywhere from 24 to 60 hours per week to complete.” Yes, per week. So, basically, it’s a full-time job, plus a part-time job—and that’s on top of the rest of your course load, internships, any actual part-time gigs, and requisite Harvard partying. [more]
