Event Update For 2019-04-19

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.

2019-04-19 - Small plane smokes after takeoff then bursts into flame after landing at Wagga Wagga Airport (Australia):

Quote: "Two people have narrowly escaped injury when their light aircraft was engulfed in flames shortly after an emergency landing in the NSW Riverina region. The men began to smell smoke shortly after takeoff from Wagga Wagga Airport at about 2pm on Friday afternoon, NSW Police said in a statement. The pilot turned the two-seater Jabiru aircraft around and descended from about 250 metres to make an emergency landing at the airport. The 64-year-old and his 69-year-old passenger quickly escaped the aircraft before it burst into flames on the runway."

Note: These are the 52nd, 53rd and 54th aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2019...

2019-04-19 - Wildfires burn out of control and rip through eight settlements east of Lake Baikal in Transbaikal (Russia), dozens of homes destroyed:

Quote: "Fires are going out of control due to strong winds in Russia. Several villages have almost completely burned down during steppe fires in Transbaikalia. Just on April 19, 2019, more than 240 people, including 25 children, were left homeless as the fire torched 71 houses and 21 buildings in eight settlements."

2019-04-19 - Petrochemical complex heavily damaged by fire in Tatarstan (Russia), 17 injured:

A spokesman for the emergencies ministry confirmed that in total 17 people had incurred burns 'of different degrees' in the fire in the city's industrial zone, but he was not able to say if the incident occurred at the plant."

2019-04-19 - New Jersey warming at alarming rate and making air harder to breathe:

2019-04-19 - Climate change protests result in hundreds of arrests in coastal London (Britain):

Quote: "Police across the capital are under strain after more than 718 arrests were made during a week of climate change protests. In a week of disruption across London, climate change protesters led by environmentalist group Extinction Rebellion have fought for their cause by glueing themselves to trains, blocking major roads and bridges and protesting at Heathrow Airport. So far, more than 718 arrests have been made, which is causing logistical problems across the capital such as limited cell space and larger issues for the wider criminal justice system."

Note: These folks still think that their protests might change anything, that something can be done, that the Earth might yet remain habitable by human beings, that they might still have a future. Wait until people realize that nothing can be done, everyone's doomed to die AND their government has been hiding this from them while they die off - should be interesting!

  1. Good mornin' Jonny, all readers here.

    You're showing ever more vehicle, building and wildfires, so we can see that pattern is expanding. As per your statement, there will come a time when we'll be overwhelmed with things burning and our ability to extinguish them will be sharply curtailed. Hell, fire departments and trucks are burning!

    Staying aloft is becoming problematic for small planes and large passenger (and military) aircraft too. Medical incidents involving drivers, swimmers, people fishing, jogging and doing yard-work is also increasing, as expected with the steady increase in toxic atmospheric gas accumulation.

    The pollution that civilization emits as a by-product is also adversely affecting our ability to sustain life.

    Earthquake Report with Margo (April 20, 2019) [~ 65 min.]

    Poor Alabama towns struggle under the stench of toxic landfills – “It smells like death”

    The landfill, called Big Sky Environmental, sits on the fringes of West Jefferson and is permitted to accept waste from 48 US states. It used a nearby rail spur to import sewage from New York and New Jersey. This epic fecal odyssey was completed by trucks which took on the waste and rumbled through West Jefferson – sometimes spilling dark liquid on sharp turns – to the landfill. [more]

    From ruined bridges to dirty air, EPA scientists price out the cost of climate change – “The cost of inaction is really high, and the cost of reducing emissions pales in comparison”

    [corrupt EPA actually allows the big polluters to continue]

    By the end of the century [oh, fuck off - it's happening NOW], the manifold consequences of unchecked climate change will cost the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars per year, according to a new study by scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Those costs will come in multiple forms, including water shortages, crippled infrastructure and polluted air that shortens lives, according to the study in Monday’s edition of Nature Climate Change. No part of the country will be untouched, the EPA researchers warned. [more]

    Advocates hoped U.S. census would find diversity in agriculture, but it found old white people – “We have seen a 30-year decline in almost every single metric”

    All categories of midsize farms declined over the past five years. Farmer’s ages skewed older, leaving questions about what happens when they age out.

    “We’re not going to suddenly attract 40-year-olds,” said Jeff Tripician, president of Perdue Premium Meat, the parent company of beef, lamb and pork producer Niman Ranch. “We have seen a 30-year decline in almost every single metric. They’re all bad. The number of jobs lost, the average net income down 45 percent since 2013. There’s no news here. It’s an acceleration of bad. What have we done to fix this?” [more]

    [most people can't work this hard, and this kind of work isn't incentivized, so it's not an "ethnic" thing - most WHITE people can't or won't farm or even grow their own food]

    NZ's glaciers receding at alarming rate

    Glaciers gone after record hot summers

    Niwa scientists take to the skies every March to record the snowline altitude of up to 50 glaciers, using specialised cameras from a light aircraft, reports Otago Daily Times.

    "One of the pilots said, `There's no need to come back here anymore'. And he's right.
    "There's not really anything we can tell from those glaciers anymore because they're gone." [more]
