Event Update For 2019-09-12

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.

2019-09-12 - Number of wildfires burning jumps sharply in Indonesia, smog spreads across Southeast Asia:

Quote: "The number of blazes in Indonesia's rainforests has jumped sharply, satellite data showed Thursday, spreading smog across Southeast Asia and adding to concerns about the impact of increasing wildfire outbreaks worldwide on global warming."

Quote: "In hard-hit Riau province on Sumatra, firefighters were battling round the clock through charred forests as they sought to extinguish blazes belching thick white smog, AFP reporters said. Provincial capital Pekanbaru was blanketed in dense smoke, leaving the sky dark even at midday. Residents sought to go about their daily lives as usual, with many wearing only rudimentary face masks."

Note: The huge wildfires burning around the world are themselves a self-reinforcing feedback. More fires produce more CO2, which makes things hotter, which results in more fires, and on and on, a runaway chain reaction that ends with the surface of the Earth becoming a charred landscape...

2019-09-12 - New report says US airline carbon emissions are growing fast:

Note: Is this a problem or a solution? It means we'll all die sooner, that's true, but then human carbon emissions will drop to zero. It's the 'Fly More Die More' strategy for carbon emissions reduction. It's like curing heroin addiction by administering a fatal dose of heroin. Tada, addiction cured!

Eyewitnesses were quoted by local media as saying that the first explosion occurred at 1:30 am, causing a forest fire which was soon put out. However, explosions in the Turkish Army Munitions Ordnance depot continues until 5 am. People living in the immediate region of the blasts were evacuated."

    People are going to be acting ever more erratically as things wind down too, with more suicides, more mass shootings, more 'zombie' behavior each year until it all turns to shit.

    Climate change: Electrical industry’s ‘dirty secret’ boosts warming

    It’s the most powerful greenhouse gas known to humanity, and emissions have risen rapidly in recent years, the BBC has learned.

    Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents.

    But leaks of the little-known gas in the UK and the rest of the EU in 2017 were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.

    Levels are rising as an unintended consequence of the green energy boom.

    the significant downside to using the gas is that it has the highest global warming potential of any known substance. It is 23,500 times more warming than carbon dioxide (CO2). It also persists in the atmosphere for a long time, warming the Earth for at least 1,000 years. [more]

    Global temperatures since the Industrial Revolution

    Global post-industrial revolution temperatures [Joe Neubarth]

    If you look there is something else other than the precipitous increase in global temperatures.

    Notice how temperatures decreased in the 1940's and didn't come back until the 1980's

    This is consistent with the assertion by GeoEngineering that geoengineering began in the 1940's.

    It seems to have suppressed the increase in global temperatures for a while [more; but made them WORSE later!]
