Event Update For 2019-05-28

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.

Quote: "A swarm of tornadoes so tightly packed that one may have crossed the path carved by another tore across Indiana and Ohio overnight, smashing homes, blowing out windows and ending the school year early for some students because of damage to buildings. One person was killed and about 90 were injured."

Quote: "The storms in Kansas City Tuesday were the 12th straight day that at least eight tornadoes were reported to the National Weather Service."

Quote: "The past couple of weeks have seen unusually high tornado activity in the U.S., with no immediate end to the pattern in sight."

2019-05-28 - Tornado reached EF-4 strength near Linwood (Kansas):

Quote: "Tuesday's night's tornado cut a nearly 32 mile path through Douglas and Leavenworth Co. and was on the ground for nearly an hour, according to the National Weather Service. The agency rated the devastating twister as an EF-3 as it sliced between Lawrence and Eudora. As it wound toward Linwood, in southern Leavenworth Co., it picked up strength in the river bottoms and reached winds speeds of 170 mph, pushing it into EF-4 status."

Note: So I was thinking, since wildfire season has started earlier in the year and ended later in the year and now has become basically a perpetual never-ending wildfire season, why couldn't that happen to tornado season? That doesn't seem terribly far-fetched to me. Just non-stop violent storms and tornadoes hammering away at us, sometimes here, sometimes there. A warmer planet means more energy in 'the system', so that energy is going to be expressed in one way or another. More energetic storms that go on and on might just be one way all that extra energy manifests. We didn't go from standard fire seasons to perpetual fire season overnight, so I wouldn't expect that to happen overnight with tornado season either, but if tornado season follows suit and lengthens over time, repeating the pattern of the lengthening wildfire seasons, I will not be surprised...

  1. i think you're on to something there, Jonny - with the eventual continuous tornado season. We've seen "snownadoes" recently, so who's to say they can't become a mile wide and rip shit up? Firenadoes can also be a devastating force, if things get any worse than they already are.

    Yeah, two 50 yr old siblings just happen to come down with a vague "medical episode" AT THE SAME TIME IN THE SAME LOCATION.

    Historic flooding on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma and Arkansas – “This is the culmination of a flood that is now in its fourth week”

    (Weather Underground) – Torrential rains in Oklahoma over the past two weeks have brought the Arkansas River in western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma to its highest water level ever recorded. Near the Oklahoma border at Fort Smith, Arkansas (population 300,000), the river rose to two feet above its previous all-time high on Tuesday morning, and was predicted to rise at least another two feet before cresting on Wednesday. The river also hit a record high on Friday at Ponca City, Oklahoma, about 70 miles upriver from Tulsa. Between those two locations, at Muskogee, Oklahoma, the river crested on Sunday at its second highest level on record. All-time record crests are predicted over the next week along a 100-mile stretch of the river extending from Fort Smith to just upstream from Little Rock, Arkansas. At Little Rock, the crest is predicted to be the sixth highest on record, and the highest since 1990. On Tuesday afternoon, two levees along the Arkansas River in Arkansas were overtopped, flooding farmlands, according to [more]

    Of course I officially gave you the credit, which Hambone mentioned, and also linked to this site in my comment.

    Scroll to the 7:10 mark if you want to see which paragraph he chose to read from you...Lol....

  5. I keep forgetting to mention an interesting comment Dmitry Orlov made a couple of weeks ago responding to a reader on his weekly blog post. This particular post was on the blog that is not behind a pay wall:

    "Three Mile Island was sabotaged (and boy did it take some work!) in order to justify a massive federal power grab over the nuclear industry. Nobody was hurt. It was, in a sense, necessary, because in the US tight government control of anything is hard to justify, but in the case of nuclear it is absolutely necessary.

    Chernobyl was blown up on purpose (hurting thousands of people) in order to bankrupt the USSR. The cost of the damage and the clean-up was on the scale of the GDP of the entire country. The institutional/reputation damage was just as bad. It was sabotage, from the highest levels (traitors were within the Politburo) and Gorbachev admitted as much, though not in public.

    Fukushima was caused by a small nuclear charge dropped from a US Navy ship on top of a geological fault some 100km offshore, triggering the tsunami. The seismographs of the earthquake that triggered the tsunami show a superimposition of two signatures: nuclear charge explosion and seismic event, with the nuclear explosion as the obvious trigger for the seismic event. Satellites picked up the radioactive plume from the upwelled gas a 100km offshore of Fukushima. A bunch of US sailors got irradiated. The Fukushima site was specifically staged and rigged to cause a sequence of three meltdowns, roughly one a day, for maximum effect: it was virtually designed to melt down. The rationale for the sabotage was a shortage of enriched uranium that would have caused the East Coast of the US to go dark unless Japan's nukes were taken off-line. Japan has the spare fossil fuel generation capacity to compensate, the US does not, so it got thrown under the bus. The shortage was caused by the termination of the "kilotons to killowats" program, by which Russia supplied nuclear fuel to the US by grinding up some number of its nuclear weapons. The Fukushima event shocked Russia into agreeing to extend the program. In return Russia got the Uranium One deal and is now very well supplied with uranium ore from around the world. This has allowed it to become the main purveyor of nuclear fuel in the world.

    Disposing of nuclear waste safely is a thorny problem, and virtually impossible for post-industrial economies. The only idea that comes to mind is paying the Russians whatever it takes to just take care of it. High-level nuclear waste can be loaded into Russian BN-series reactors, where it can generate a bit of additional energy while decaying a whole lot faster than it otherwise would, becoming safe to bury in just 300 years instead of the usual thousands to millions of years. The holy grail is the closed nuclear cycle, where cheap and plentiful uranium 238 goes in and low-level radioactive waste comes out. The Russians aren't quite there yet, but they are getting close, and they are damned determined to get there."

    Survey shows quarter of Americans feel they have no one to confide in

    A new survey suggests millions of Americans may be forced to bottle up their emotions and secrets when it comes to having someone to confide in.

    The survey, commissioned by the counseling service BetterHelp, found that a quarter of the 2,000 adults questioned didn't have someone to privately turn to for their their private struggles or thoughts. Seven in ten participants admitted that when sharing their feelings with a co-worker, friend, or romantic partner, they tend hold back their true feelings. And a staggering 90% of participants say they downplay their emotions so they don't burden or worry a loved one.

    The study segmented the participants by age. On the whole, participants between the ages of 18 and 30 are much more withdrawn than participants over 50 years old when discussing potentially anxiety-inducing topics like finances, job stress, parents and family, or other friends, with a partner.

    Continuously holding back many emotions at once causes stress and anxiety to manifest in physical ways. The survey indicated that the top five physical symptoms of holding back emotions are difficulty sleeping, difficulty focusing, irritability, and poor eating habits. [more]

  7. Not really buying the US-nuked-Japan theory, to get more enriched uranium. Uranium is pretty common and enriching it is not hard.

    Also, Fukushima hurt US soldiers, and hurt a US ally too. I think they just got hit by the inevitable coastal mega-quake, which exposed the risk and dangers of building nuclear reactors right along coastlines.

    Here's a story I've not told many times about Fukushima. I was watching things pretty closely back then. After Fukushima we sent a nuclear crew, but they didn't seem to do anything. I think they were there to deliver something.

    A couple of days after the US nuclear crew arrived in Japan, a missile was launched from Japan, purpose unknown. A couple of days after THAT, there was a huge flash of light above Florida and a chunk of Florida suddenly went dark.

    I think what happened was, that gigantic quake shook up the sea floor. There are huge methane clathrate deposits there. A bunch of methane - I mean a WHOLE LOT - belched into the atmosphere. Being lighter than air, that invisible cloud of methane began ascending. By the time it was fairly high in the atmosphere, it was over Florida. A nuclear warhead on that missile, a warhead that that US nuclear crew delivered, detonated that methane cloud high in the atmosphere over Florida. The explosion caused the flash of light and the resulting EMP temporarily knocked out power to a swath of Florida.

    That's what I think happened with that US nuclear crew in Japan, the missile, the flash of light and the blackout in Florida.

    1. What you outlined sounds a lot more reasonable and sound that what Orlov said. I've been reading and listening to him for quite a few years now and I was really surprised to find out what he thinks happened with Fukishima. Seems out of character for him. I had heard some theories from the usual conspiracy theorist types that the US used a nuke to cause the tsunami. But the reason they supplied was that Japan was being "naughty" and not playing by the US Empire rules, or was threatening to "go rogue", and needed a good paddling by the Master.

      But Wow! They had to blow up a huge methane cloud. That means there's a precedence for them to do it again some day. Of course eventually there will just be too much to nuke away. May already be the case.

    2. Actually, I think they have probably done the same thing at least one other time. Near Hawaii, some people saw this gigantic sphere in the sky. That looked to me like the outer edge of the shockwave from a huge explosion. So maybe they've done this a couple of times, or even more if they do it way out at sea where nobody's around to see it.

  8. Oh, and that US nuclear crew - they were only there a couple of days. Long enough to install a nuclear warhead, not remotely long enough to offer any help with Fukushima itself. If they'd been there for Fukushima, they've have been there for weeks or months or years. But if they were there just to deliver a nuclear warhead and help Japan mount it on that missile, that'd not take very long at all.

  9. I don't know. With methane being flammable, wouldn't one of those massive incendiary devices the military has do the job without spreading more nuclear radiation into the atmosphere?

    Unless they just don't give a shit about it, nuking a methane cloud seems like a really bad idea.

  10. Not enough oxygen in the upper atmosphere to burn normally - that's like the edge of space. A nuclear explosion would burn it off and disperse it though, even without oxygen.

  11. I think the fear was that a solar flare would hit the Earth's upper atmosphere while that cloud was still concentrated, pushing that cloud potentially all the way down to the surface of the Earth and incinerating an area the size of Connecticut or something. And you can't predict when the Sun will spew out a solar flare, so waiting was a big gamble. If Texas suddenly went up in flames for no apparent reason, you'd have mass panic. So they had to try something. Maybe dispersing it was actually more the goal than burning it up - just to lower the concentration so if it DID get pushed down into the lower atmosphere, it wouldn't cause a firestorm.

  12. Also, I think we got really lucky with Fukushima - the winds must have been blowing away from shore. There was a trial run in 1993, when a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck right off the coast of Japan. Here are some quotes about what happened with that quake:

    Quote: "But the mystery of ships spontaneously bursting into flames following the tsunami crashing into the harbour- with winds from the tsunami driving the blaze further inland has never been solved. As a second tsunami wave hurtled toward shore, it generated powerful winds that pushed the burning boats to the coastal area, spreading the fire into the city. But now, researchers and experts in Japan have claimed that a build-up methane gas on the floor of the Sea of Japan were disturbed by the earthquake was a likely cause of the fires that swept through the area."

    Quote: "Using previously 'inaccessible' footage from Japanese broadcaster NHK, Yuji Enomoto, a professor emeritus at Shinshu University in Japan, explained how witnesses at the time described rising mists and seawater 'foaming' before the fires took place. One witness said: 'The offshore area looked shining white and bubbling.' Researchers from the university say the bubbles that witnesses described seeing in 1993 represented methane that was formerly embedded in the seafloor, but was dislodged by the ground sliding. The once-trapped methane bubbles were then squeezed up and out into the air by the tsunami front, which transported them to the shore."

    Quote: "The researchers held tests that found when electrostatic energy generated a charge of 0.28 millijoules, the methane would catch fire. The team concluded that methane electrostatically ignited when the wind violently drove released methane into Aonae Harbor's quay. Methane bubbles that had accumulated on the decks of the fishing boats sparked."

    Quote: "Professor Enomoto told Live Science that tsunami fires are an 'understudied hazard' - and pointed out significant quantities of methane remain buried in coastal regions of Japan."

  13. Wow, see - i never saw or heard that! Explains a lot. i also didn't know that the methane cloud rose up that high. No matter, we're goners anyway - too many things stacked against us.
