Event Update For 2019-06-21

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. Regarding that wreck that wiped out 7 motorcycles, a survivor in the report by CNN said that there was a lot of fire. Specifically she said it "was all fire". Seems to be too much fire for motorcycles. Of course you know what I'm thinking here.

  2. Hey Jonny, Mike and anyone else visiting JJFH today.

    MrMBB333 has a new video with some really interesting phenomena, including a HUGE storm that may have passed through Jonny's neck of the woods on the way to the east coast. Left a lot of people without electricity and caused damage. [~ 13.5 m]

    Really liked Jonny's new timely lyric to the popular YMCA song. The refinery fire is finally out, but the reconstruction question has yet to be answered. More examples of coincident JJFH events in the same general area, again.

  4. Skydiving plane in Hawaii crash was involved in previous terrifying incident

    The skydiving plane that crashed this weekend in Hawaii, killing all 11 on board, was also involved in a frightening midair incident in Northern California three years before.

    National Transportation Safety Board records show that same aircraft, built in 1967, stalled three times and spun another three during a 2016 skydiving flight in the eastern San Francisco Bay Area, forcing 14 skydivers to jump to safety.

    The NTSB’s investigative report blamed the incident on error by the pilot, who managed the land the plane safely, though it lost a piece of the horizontal stabilizer and had the elevator break off.

    Witnesses to Friday’s accident said the aircraft was flying at low altitude after takeoff when it started to nosedive and flipped twice before hitting the ground nose first, causing a fiery explosion.

    Another witness, Wylie Schoonover, saw the plane flying over trees while driving from a nearby YMCA camp, then saw smoke billowing from the airfield and drove over, finding an “insane amount of fire,’’ she said.

    “It didn’t even look like a plane. A bunch of people were asking, ‘What is this?’ It was completely gone,” Schoonover said. [more]

  5. The way to get around the NYTimes and Washington Post paywalls is to use a standard browser, separate from the one you normally use, that allows you to delete all private information, cookies, etc. As soon as you hit your monthly limit and the paywall pops up, delete all your private info and refresh that link. So instead of getting 3 free articles per month, this allows you to get 3 free articles per month multiplied by however many times you feel like deleting your private info. The only way for them to limit that would be to offer new viewers ZERO free articles - they'd have to make people pay before they can even see what they're paying for. Which wouldn't work out too well for them. This same method works for any site that has paywalls that offers X articles per [time_unit] before the paywall kicks in. I use Vivaldi as my paywall-cracking browser.

  6. That's all over poor Tom's little tech illiterate head. I just 'don't go there' if an article is being used as a toll booth.

    Beyond climate tipping points
    Greenhouse gas levels exceed the stability threshold of the ice sheets


    As the world keeps increasing its carbon emissions and exports, rising in 2018 to a record 33.1 billion ton per year, the atmospheric greenhouse gas level has now exceeded 560 ppm CO₂-equivalent when methane and nitrous oxide are included, intersecting the stability threshold of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. The term “climate change“ is no longer appropriate since, what is happening in the atmosphere-ocean system, accelerating over the last 70 years or so, is an abrupt calamity on a geological dimension, threatening nature and human civilization. Ignoring what the science says, the powers to be are presiding over the sixth mass extinction of species, including humans. [more]
