Event Update For 2019-02-17

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.

    “An Unavoidable Global Recession”: The Warnings Get Louder As Worldwide Economic Numbers Continue To Deteriorate

    Economic numbers all over the world continue to get worse, and as you will see below, even New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is now warning of “an unavoidable global recession”. Unfortunately, most Americans still have absolutely no idea that this is happening. Most ordinary citizens are still under the impression that everything is going to be just fine, but the numbers suggest otherwise. The Baltic Dry Index just plummeted to the lowest level that we have seen in three years, and this is yet another indication that the global trade war is causing widespread economic pain. And according to Bloomberg, global economic growth has now dropped to the lowest level that we have seen since the Great Recession… [more]

    Giant 280ft asteroid will skim past Earth TODAY in close flyby travelling at 30,420 miles per hour – And we have no techniques to stop an asteroid colliding with Earth

    Asteroid 2013 MD8 is expected to skim past Earth on Tuesday, NASA said. The space rock has a diameter of nearly 280ft, which rivals the size of Big Ben. It will fly by our planet at about 13 lunar distances, or just over 3 million miles, at an amazing speed of 30,422 miles per hour (or 13.6km per second). Today is also the biggest and brightest fullmoon of 2019. [more; 13 LD isn't "skimming past" - it's a long way off]

    Potential service interruption

    Blogger has been a good and faithful host of Desdemona’s content for more than ten years. But due to a confluence of technical issues, Desdemona has decided that the blog must move to a more modern platform: WordPress.

    What happened? Why are you doing this?

    For the geeks among you, the biggest problem with staying on Blogger is Google’s decision to retire the Picasa Web API for managing photos online. This breaks all blog-authoring applications that we bloggers use to write posts. Desdemona uses Open Live Writer (OLW) on Windows, and many Mac bloggers use MarsEdit. Hundreds of people complained in the OLW code repo, but as with a lot of open-source software, one never knows who’s in charge or if the project has been abandoned.

    Some inconvenient truths about climate change (and it doesn't come from Al Gore)

    If you believe Michael Mann if you tell the truth but don't spout the fantasies about “fixing” climate change you are a climate change denier.

    There is so much wrong with what Prof. Jordan Peterson has to say here – not least his admiration for capitalism and its ability to “solve” climate change.

    For all that there are things he is right on the nail about. There is not going to be any easy fix to climate change – unless you believe in the psychopathic geoengineers' geoengineering dreams.

    He shows clearly how the most-touted “solutions” won't work.

    Jordan Peterson is the last to say it but WE'RE SCREWED.

    Arctic rain - yet another positive feedback

    Earlier Arctic Rain Is Leading to 'Methane Emissions Going Bonkers'

    As the global temperature steadily rises, it ensures that levels of one of the most potent greenhouse gases are increasing in a way new to science: the planet will have to reckon with more methane than expected.

    Researchers who monitored one bog for three years in the Alaskan permafrost have identified yet another instance of what engineers call positive feedback.

    They found that global warming meant earlier springs and with that, earlier spring rains.

    And as a consequence, the influx of warm water on what had previously been frozen ground triggered a biological frenzy that sent methane emissions soaring. [more]

    Arctic Bogs Hold Another Global Warming Risk That Could Spiral Out of Control

    “Our results emphasize that these permafrost regions are sensitive to the thermal effects of rain, and because we’re anticipating that these environments are going to get wetter in the future, we could be seeing increases in methane emissions that we weren’t expecting,” said the study’s lead author, Rebecca Neumann, a civil and environmental engineering professor at the University of Washington.
