Event Update For 2019-01-29

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.

  1. G-g-g-good m-m-morning, J-Jonny. Goin' for a high of 15 today!

    The problem with chaotic climate change is that we're now in unpredictable weather patterns. So, like you cautioned, we may see spring cold snaps or high heat when plants and trees can least take it, causing crop failure and FOOD SHORTAGES.

    Add to that the fact that we're rapidly running out of potable water, and we have big trouble in River City (or Little China).

    [Kevin still thinks we're gonna "do something" about climate change "before it's too late" through POLITICAL action. Bullshit. Though Greta made an amazing speech at Davos, little to no action will be taken by the powers that be (probably because it will cost them MONEY). Beside the fact that people are going to start panicking when the food shortages start, I don't see anything happening to mitigate climate change, which is already ramping up while MOST of humanity still doesn't see it, or willfully ignores it.]

    Polar vortex death toll rises as Arctic blast keeps the Midwest in a deep freeze

    Officials across multiple states have linked at least six deaths to the weather, including several people who may have frozen to death in Milwaukee, Detroit and Rochester, Minn. Authorities said a reported death in Peoria, Ill., may have also been weather-related.

    University of Iowa officials said an “unresponsive” student had been discovered behind an academic hall and later died at the hospital. Authorities haven’t released a cause of death, but police told a local TV station they believe the extreme weather was a factor; the Press Citizen reported that the air temperature at the time the student was found was minus-22, with a wind chill of minus-51.

    It was colder than Alaska’s North Slope in many places. Norris Camp, Minn., where temperatures dropped to minus-48 degrees Wednesday, with the wind chill pegged at minus-65, was the coldest reporting location in the United States as of Wednesday evening and one of the coldest spots on Earth.

    Even Hell, Mich., froze over: The community outside of Ann Arbor was expected to see temperatures drop to minus-26 overnight into Thursday. The nearby University of Michigan took the rare step of canceling classes through Thursday.[more]

  3. Researchers examine political divide behind climate change beliefs – “This is a depressing scenario for those hoping to get movement on climate change opinions”

    Despite a scientific consensus, citizens are divided when it comes to climate change, often along political lines, and scholars want to better understand why.

    “We were interested in understanding the clear political divide in the U.S. on climate change beliefs and related policies and behaviors. Nearly all Democrats believe in human-induced climate change and many support climate mitigation policies, yet many Republicans remain skeptical,” said James Druckman, the Payson S. Wild Professor of political science in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern University and co-author of a recent article in Nature Climate Change.

    Druckman, also associate director of the University’s Institute for Policy Research (IPR), said a prominent explanation for the divide is that it stems from directional “motivated reasoning,” meaning, in this case, individuals skeptical about climate change reject ostensibly credible scientific information because it contradicts what they already believe.

    “This is a depressing scenario for those hoping to get movement on climate change opinions,” Druckman added.

    “An equally consistent explanation is that rather than flatly rejecting information that contradicts what they already believe, people may simply differ in what they consider reliable information,” said Mary McGrath, co-author and assistant professor of political science at Northwestern.

    In fact, much to their surprise, the authors found that there is virtually no evidence for the aforementioned “motivated reasoning.”

    “We have little clear evidence that can differentiate directional motivated reasoning from an accuracy motivated model -- and the distinction between the two models matters critically for effective communication,” said McGrath, a faculty fellow at IPR.

    “Republicans might reject a scientific report because they do not believe the authors of the report to be credible or may be less trustworthy of science in general,” Druckman added. “This is important because it means closing the gap on climate change would involve offering distinct types of evidence and messaging, and we imagine this actually may be what is happening as we see more climate change messaging that appeals to values or religious authorities. This also may be why in the last year or two, Republicans have in fact significantly moved on climate change.”

    A Stanford University study found that Republicans underestimate the actual number of other Republicans that believe in climate change and actually 57 percent believe there is climate change.

    Furthermore, according to a December New York Times article on Republicans’ views on global warming, majorities in both parties agree that the world is experiencing global warming and call for government action to address it, while they may disagree on the cause. In addition, both parties seem to find some common ground on remedies to combat climate change. [more]

    Mysterious booms shake Chicago – Frostquakes?

    Chicago will be colder than Antarctica this week. This is why they are putting the train tracks on FIRE. Meanwhile Chicago residents have started hearing loud boom-like noises, but there were no earthquakes reported. However, freezing temperatures may have triggered frost quakes… Yes, cryoseisms!

    A cryoseism, or frost quake, is a natural phenomenon that produces ground shaking and noises similar to an earthquake, but is caused by sudden deep freezing of the ground. [more]

    5G - War on Humanity - The David Icke Dot-Connector Videocast [~ 52 min. video]

  5. I know you're busy preparing your end-of-the-month extravaganza of doom, Jonny. You work hard at this, man - and it shows. Quality graphics, important and relevant stories, inspirational sayings, great cartoon panel (often with GUESTS!), stats on topical subjects, and gracious space for a lively commentariat! Producin' JJFH ain't no "walk inna park."

    It's only going to 0 here tonight, with another shot of snow expected tomorrow.

    One of the subjects the news reports highlight is how all this extreme weather is breaking down the infrastructure we humans depend on. Roads are melting and buckling in the heat; train tracks are warping in both high heat and frigid cold; power systems are exploding and burning (JJFH); utility poles are bursting into flame; condensers and transformers flame out or fail, while electrical and phone lines are being severed due to falling trees and branches; critical deliveries are delayed due to flight cancellations, traffic pile-ups, accidents and vehicle fires, impassable roads (due to weather, landslides, earthquakes, etc) and warehouse fires, not to mention all the truckers dying while driving. I haven't even mentioned all the gas, water, sewer and waste lines that were installed way back when these weather extremes weren't even considered in the specifications involved in their manufacture and installation parameters. They weren't designed to have to withstand ridiculous cold or unbelievable heat, plus they're OLD and prone to problems. This goes for pipelines too!

    As Yoda would say: In for a world of hurt, we are.
