Event Update For 2019-09-22

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.

2019-09-22 - Homes mysteriously going up in flames in Guinea:

Quote: "People tell us that a fire will suddenly break out in the middle of the afternoon in one home and, soon, another home is on fire as well. They have no idea what could set off these fires – they certainly haven’t seen anyone suspicious enter the village."

Note: Guinea is on the western coast of Africa, the coast most likely to be hit by flammable methane and hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the ocean...

Queensland has endured an early-season bushfire emergency this month after hot and dry conditions and strong winds fueled dozens of blazes, which destroyed 17 homes mostly in the state’s south. The threat of the fires eased last week, but on Sunday about 30 fires continued to burn across the state."

2019-09-22 - Venus was potentially habitable until something mysterious happened:

Quote: "But something happened around 700 million years ago that remains a mystery, although the researchers think its connected to volcanic activity. Magma would have released carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and as the magma cooled, the gas couldn't be reabsorbed in the surface."

Note: I believe the mysterious event that occurred was another planetary-scale or larger object with a powerful magnetic field - and rotating in the opposite direction - passing close enough to Venus to slow its rotation to nothing with magnetic friction and then slightly reverse it. That amount of magnetic friction created a vast amount of heat in the core of the planet, just as brakes heat up when you slam on the brakes in a car, and that's what caused the volcanism that turned Venus into a hellhole. This explains both mysteries - why the rotational speed of Venus is unlike any other planet in the solar system AND why Venus experienced radical volcanism, heated up and turned into a hellhole. Two mysteries, but one event explains them both...

  1. Wow - amazing analysis of Venus (and probably Earth too). Wouldn't an object sizable enough to impact Venus so dramatically also impact Earth, Mars and any other objects (like moons, that have far less mass) similarly? i mean, how big WAS this thing and how far away from Venus to effect only it throughout our solar system? i can imagine a parabolic trajectory for this object, where the vertex would be close enough to Venus to cause the reversal of it's orbit before the object swung back out into interstellar space, never to be seen again.

    Stench of death in some neighbourhoods of the Bahama Islands has become overwhelming: Police say they don't want to go there: 1300 still missing

    According to a new report, the stench of death on some neighbourhoods of the Bahama Islands has become overwhelming two weeks after Hurricane Dorian smashed its way and then [unsuspiciously] stalled for forty-eight hours into the area.

    The official death toll across the Bahamas is 52. But that number is expected to skyrocket, with 1,300 people still missing two weeks after the hurricane. Some may be trapped under mountains of rubble where houses once stood. Others may have been washed away in the storm surge, their bodies only recently surfacing on land. [more]

    The Latest Numbers Tell Us That The Global Economic Slowdown Is Accelerating Dramatically

    Economists are already predicting “the world’s lowest growth in a decade”, but it is beginning to look like what we will be facing will be much worse than that. In recent days, numbers have been coming in from all over the planet that are absolutely abysmal. The “global economic slowdown” is rapidly transitioning into a new global economic crisis, and central banks seem powerless to stop what is happening. They have already pushed interest rates to the floor (actually below the floor in many cases), and over the past decade they have absolutely flooded the global economy with new money. But despite all of this unprecedented intervention, economic conditions are deteriorating at a pace that is breathtaking. [more]

  2. Indonesia forest fires: Video shows sky turned blood red by 'scary phenomenon'

    The phenomenon, which occurred mainly in the nation's Jambi province, was caused by the ongoing forest fires that have endangered large parts of the country. It's an effect known as Rayleigh scattering, where light is dispersed by particles in the air, which filters out certain wavelengths.

    Rayleigh scattering is the reason the sky usually appears blue, but in this case, particles released by the fires turned everything a deep, dark red. The forest fires also brought reduced air quality that made it difficult for many people to breathe properly. [more]

    Inside America's most toxic nuclear waste dump, where 56 million gallons of buried radioactive sludge are leaking into the earth

    Hanford Nuclear Reservation is the most polluted area in the United States. Buried beneath the complex is 56 million gallons of radioactive waste that need to be dealt with.
    The reservation produced the plutonium for Fat Man, the atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki in Japan, as well as for the United States' atomic weapon stockpile during the Cold War.
    In June 2019, President Trump's administration announced it would downgrade the threat levels of some radioactive waste to save the government $40 billion on cleanup.
    The announcement has been criticized as a way to make cleaning up nuclear waste easier, without actually doing the clean-up part.
    Trump's administration also wants to cut Hanford's funding by $416 million. But the cleanup needs more funding, not less.

    WMO sees global average temperature at new record in five years

  5. If I had to throw out a guess, I'd say that object was (is) a brown dwarf, spinning extremely rapidly, with a mass of around 3% of the Sun's mass. As to whether that would affect other planets - over a number of orbits, probably there would be signs. There might be an asteroid belt from a planet torn apart by its tidal forces. There might be a planet in an odd orbit out of the plane of the ecliptic (Pluto). There might be a planet with an unusually slow or backwards rotation (Venus).

    Two things would minimize the impact of said object: 1) any object coming that far down the Sun's gravity well would be moving at maximum speed at that time and would not be in the neighborhood long. If you're on the other side of the Sun, and factoring in the inverse-square law of gravity over distance, then you wouldn't even notice it. It's not like we notice the effect of Jupiter, and it's pretty big too; and 2) nobody says it'd be in the plane of the ecliptic. It COULD be, but the odds that it'd be exactly in the plane of the ecliptic are actually low, so it might not even get near anything most of the time until it's deep into the inner system and near the Sun.

    And who is to say that we haven't felt its effects here on Earth? Nobody knows what set off the massive volcanic eruptions that burned the Siberian Traps and released enough greenhouse gases to broil the planet and kill off most life on this planet.

    I am convinced that this solar system is a binary system, with a small dark star companion to the Sun, which comes through the inner system every 25-30 million years. (It would have an unstable and somewhat varying orbital period because on the way OUT then even a small gravitational tug from Jupiter, Neptune and/or Uranus could significantly alter the orbit.)

    Texas High School Football Player Collapses, Dies in Brother's Arms

    A North Texas high school is mourning the sudden death of a 16-year-old football player who reportedly collapsed and died in his twin brother's arms while playing tag.

    "We started jogging a little bit more and he was like, 'Da, I can’t breathe,'" Dashaud Williams said. "I was like, 'You good? Come on, we're going to get home.' And he was like, 'I can't breathe. I'm about to pass out.' And I ran to him and he fell to his knees and fell on his back."

    The family said the student-athlete underwent a physical this school year which included a heart test.

    Everything, they said, appeared normal.

    Venus may have been habitable until mysterious catastrophe millions of years ago

    In a new study, scientists make the case for how ancient Venus could have once supported life alongside oceans of liquid water, until a mysterious resurfacing event took all that away about 700 million years ago.

    "Our hypothesis is that Venus may have had a stable climate for billions of years," says planetary scientist Michael Way from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

    "It is possible that the near-global resurfacing event is responsible for its transformation from an Earth-like climate to the hellish hot-house we see today." [more]

    Huge asteroid set to graze past Earth on Halloween [Oct.25th, not 31st]

    A kilometre-wide asteroid is hurtling towards Earth, scheduled to fly past our planet just in time for Halloween.

    NASA diagrams show how nail-bitingly close the fly-by of this asteroid, actually classed as a minor planet, is set to be.

    Dubbed 1998 HL1, the space rock has been categorised as a moderate threat and luckily this year its closest approach will be 150,000,000 miles away on 25 October. [more]

    US prevent plantings in 2019 at 20 million acres, more than double the previous record

    [another misleading headline from SOTT]

    Historic flooding in the early spring and record rainfall across portions of the Corn Belt led many in the industry to expect prevent plantings, i.e., the failure to plant an insured crop, to reach record highs in 2019, and the latest crop report bears that out.

    Prevented planting payments provide crop insurance benefits to policyholders to compensate for pre-planting costs incurred in preparation for planting the crop. For some farmers, these indemnity payments may exceed the economic returns associated with a late-planted and poor-yielding crop.

    The previous prevent plantings record, set in 2011, was just shy of 10 million acres for the eight principle crops (Prevent Planting Implications for 2017). Recently released Farm Service Agency crop acreage data revealed that as of late August prevent plantings were record-high at nearly 20 million acres, more than double the previous record. [more]
