Event Update For 2019-05-12

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.

    Stocks Crater – 3.5 Trillion Dollars In Global Market Cap Wiped Out – China Considers “Dumping U.S. Treasuries”

    Wall Street responded to our escalating trade war with China by throwing a bit of a temper tantrum. On Monday the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 617 points, and that was the worst day for the Dow since January 3rd. But things were even worse for the Nasdaq. It had its worst day since December 4th, and overall the Nasdaq is now down 6.3 percent in just the last six trading sessions. Of course it isn’t just in the United States that stocks are declining. Since last Monday, a total of approximately $3.5 trillion in market cap has been wiped out on global stock markets. And since it doesn’t look like we are going to get any sort of a trade deal any time soon, this could potentially be just the beginning of our problems. [more]

To help protect against the attack, Bolton has ordered Patriot missile batteries, an aircraft carrier strike group, and a bomber strike force to the region. [more]

    It has also been repeatedly claimed on AfD’s Facebook page that she is the leader of a climate movement cult. Posts on the page make repeated use of terms such as “CO2Kult” (CO2 cult), “Klimawandelpanik” (climate change panic) and “Klimagehirnw√§sche” (climate brain washing). [more]

    Burnout Nation

    A number of recent surveys reflect a widespread sense of financial stress and symptoms of poor health in America’s workers, particularly the younger generations. There’s no real mystery as to the cause of this economic anxiety:

    — competition for secure, well-paid jobs that were once considered the birthright of the middle class is increasingly fierce;

    — the pay and predictability of the jobs that are available are low;

    — high-paying jobs are extraordinarily demanding, forcing workers to sacrifice everything else to keep the big-bucks position;

    — the much-lauded gig economy is tracking the Pareto Distribution, as 80% of the income accrues to the top 20%, and those trying to earn a lower-middle class income in the gig economy are working long hours to do so;

    — housing costs are unaffordable in hot job markets;

    — commutes to jobs from lower-cost areas are brutal;

    — student loan debt taken on to earn low-value diplomas is crushing. [more]

  6. Well I guess Kevin Sandbloom and Paul Beckwith are at least a bit happier now that Guy McPherson has done a complete 180 on geoengineering. Of course that is what the "surprise ending" to the recent interview by Peter Miller on YT was concerning.

    And Guy tried to spin this radical departure by saying, "Well I've never been opposed to taking right action".

    Yeah. Uh huh.

    I guess his lady wanted a rebranding of the Guy McPherson Show. The west coast tour was pretty much a dud after all.

  7. Who's Guy McPherson? Must be a generational thing. (Heh, paraphrasing Pete Buttigieg and Mad Magazine.)

    1. One of the regular commentors on Kunstler's Blog called Pete Buttigieg a potential "President Buttplug". Lol...

  8. Yeah, i kinda thought Guy would end up coming around to that, since he's "all for taking action." It's such a predicament - he KNOWS that it'll "likely make things worse" (according to the peer-reviewed scientific literature), but when we're so close to the end, what difference will it make? Pretty soon, it'll become painfully clear that we can't grow food reliably anymore and the chaos will start. i don't expect to live through it.

    All Four Major Wireless Carriers Hit With Lawsuits Over Sharing, Selling Location Data

    We've noted repeatedly that if you're upset about Facebook's privacy scandals, you should be equally concerned about the wireless industry's ongoing location data scandals. Not only were the major carriers caught selling your location data to any nitwit with a checkbook, they were even found to be selling your E-911 location data, which provides even more granular detail about your data than GPS provides. This data was then found to have been widely abused from everybody from law enforcement to randos pretending to be law enforcement.

    Throughout all this, the Ajit Pai FCC has done absolutely nothing to seriously police the problem. Meaning that while carriers have promised to stop collecting and selling this data, nobody has bothered to force carriers to actually confirm this. Given telecom's history when it comes to consumer privacy, somebody might just want to double check their math (and ask what happened to all that data already collected and sold over the last decade).

    Compounding carrier problems, all four major wireless carriers last week were hit with a class action lawsuit (correctly) noting the carriers had violated Section 222 of the Federal Communications Act by selling consumer proprietary network information (CPNI) data [more]
