Event Update For 2019-09-19

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.

    ‘Worse Than Anyone Expected’: Air Travel Emissions Vastly Outpace Predictions

    Precipitation slows fire season in the Northwest

    Precipitation in the northwest one-quarter of the United States received over the last 72 hours will slow if not end the wildland fire season in some areas. The map shows precipitation detected by weather radar, which means there are gaps in areas with poor radar coverage.

    According to the data, many areas received more than half an inch which will definitely have an effect lasting more than a few days.

    You might notice that the rainfall in southeast Texas is completely off the chart, showing more than 15 inches. As this is written Thursday afternoon the Houston area is in the middle of the fifth 500+ year rainstorm in the last five years. [more]

    Disaster unfolding! Tropical Depression Imelda causing extraordinary threat to life and property in Texas with more intense rain in the forecast

    Swaths of southeast Texas were underwater Thursday after Tropical Depression Imelda caused catastrophic flooding. Scores of residents had to be carried through the floodwaters and motorists needed to be rescued from submerged vehicles. Children were forced to shelter in place at schools in Houston. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster in 13 counties Thursday, saying the severe weather "has caused widespread and severe property damage and threatens the loss of life." "Major, catastrophic flooding is occurring across much of southeast Texas," the National Weather Service says. With more intense rain in the forecast, the agency says, some areas could see rain totals of 30 to 40 inches through Friday.

    Goldman Sachs Has Just Issued An Ominous Warning About Stock Market Chaos In October

    Are we about to see U.S. financial markets go crazy? That is what Goldman Sachs seems to think, and it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that great financial chaos has been unleashed during the month of October. When the stock market crashed in October 1929, it started the worst economic depression that we have ever witnessed. In October 1987, the largest single day percentage decline in U.S. stock market history rocked the entire planet. And the nightmarish events of October 2008 set the stage for a “Great Recession” that we still haven’t fully recovered from. So could it be possible that something similar may happen in October 2019? According to CNBC, Goldman Sachs is warning that the stock market could soon “go crazy again”… [more]

    Most common antidepressant barely helps improve depression symptoms, 'shocking' trial finds

    The most commonly prescribed antidepressant barely relieves symptoms of modern depression, a major study reveals.

    The largest independent investigation ever undertaken found patients taking sertraline experienced negligible improvements in mood.

    Published in the Lancet Psychiatry, the study comes amid mounting controversy over increased use of antidepressants by GPs in recent decades, with roughly 7.3 million people in England issued a prescription each year.

    Its authors said they were “shocked and surprised” by the results, and called for the development of new classes of medication. [more]

    Five Houston-area deaths are now blamed on Tropical Storm Imelda as Texas residents fight through hazardous flooding that's brought the region to a standstill, leaving hundreds of cars swamped and abandoned.

    Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Verdict Leads to Angry Fallout

    Three executives of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) who ignored repeated warnings of a potential tidal wave that could result in a nuclear disaster, which did in fact take place, were found not guilty of criminal negligence resulting in death and injury by a Tokyo Court on Thursday. Many feel justice was poorly served. However, a former prosecutor says that the verdict was to be expected.

    The verdict, which took several hours for the judges to finish reading out loud—starting at 1:15 p.m. and ending around 4:30 p.m. with a short break—concluded that while the TEPCO executives did receive several warnings of a tidal wave large enough to cause a nuclear accident, they were justified in taking no safety measures for a number of reasons:

    1) If they had taken the warnings seriously and tried to take countermeasures it would have required them to close the plant down temporarily, which was considered prohibitively expensive.

    2) There were questions as to how seriously to take the data about tsunamis.

    3) Even if the TEPCO executives had acted on the warnings, they probably wouldn’t have completed safety countermeasures in time.

    In reaching the decision, the court stated that tsunami forecast information was vague, and that the three could not have “realistically” foreseen a disaster on such a grand scale. [more]

    Permian Hotspot Tracks Methane as Oil Boom Spurs Climate Concern

    New Mexico is turning to satellites and artificial intelligence to track methane emissions as soaring oil and natural gas production from the Permian Basin stokes concern about climate change.

The data, which will be available to the public, will help oil companies manage methane and guide state inspectors to potential problem areas on an almost real-time basis. [more; who's model?]
