Event Update For 2019-05-31

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. Hey Jonny - there goes another month, eh?! Can't wait to see your special features for the first half of this year, so we can compare them to the second half of the year, should we be lucky enough to live through it. Of course, from there, the situation will only get worse, so, maybe "lucky" isn't the word . ..

    Climate Plan

    What we're witnessing is more than a climate crisis, we're facing climate catastrophe and the outlook is grim. We're already in the Sixth Mass Extinction event and we're facing a potential global temperature rise of 18°C or 32.4°F by 2026. Merely declaring a climate emergency is not enough. [more]

    Historically delayed planting season, commodity prices rising, U.S.

    Catastrophic floods affecting the United States since mid-March 2019 are resulting in what experts are calling historically delayed planting season. The situation is already having a big impact on commodity prices but the full extent will be known by the end of the year and into 2020 planting season. [more]

    So far this year, a record 70 gray whales have been found dead and along the west coast of the US but the true figure could be as many as 700 as most die out at sea

    The declaration by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - technically, the agency dubbed the deaths an "unusual mortality event" - kicks in a provision of federal law that provides funding for scientists to figure out the cause when such die-offs of marine mammals occur, from whales and dolphins in the Pacific or Atlantic to manatees off Florida.

    So far this year, at least 70 gray whales have been found dead and stranded along the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska - the most in nearly 20 years, scientists from NOAA said Friday. [more]

    But now it's time for the Garbage Truck fires and Hull JJFH Events tally for the month of May!

    It's kind of strange, but May exactly mirrored January of this year: over 8 days this month 10 garbage trucks burned.

    During 12 days this month there were 16 JJFH incidents (1 more day and two more events than in January and second highest number this year, right behind last month). There was a string of 3 days in a row of Hull JJFH incidents in the first week of May. As in January, there were two days in which both of these events happened.

    Bad weather damages orchards on the Sele plain in Italy

    A report drafted by Confagricoltura Salerno explains that the incessant rain of the past few days and the heavy hailstorms compromised 80% of the peach, plum, nectarine and apricot open-field orchards in the south of the Sele plain towards Eboli.

    Giovanni Mellone, an entrepreneur from the Sele plain, reported that "kiwifruits were heavily damaged and blossoming was scarce, so orchards will not be very productive. Some apricot cultivars either did not produce or experienced delayed ripening, and stone fruit ripening was delayed in general. This summer campaign will not be one of the best, as there were will be gaps alternated with moments where the market will be saturated." [more]

  3. Man dies following dog attack in Fort Madison, Iowa

    Authorities say a man is dead after a dog attacked him and two others Friday morning.

    Officers say the dog was very aggressive and would not release the man which prompted the officers to shoot at the animal to stop the attack.

    Officers then found 33 year old Robert Joseph Quick laying in the doorway of the home suffering from the dog attack. Quick asked officers to help his 5 year old daughter who had been bitten in the face by the dog.

    Officers say Quick defended his daughter and "undoubtedly saved her life by his actions."

    The sheriff says Quick later died at the Fort Madison Hospital ER.

    According to Weber, the case is still under investigation pending an autopsy to determine the exact cause of Quick's death. [more]
