Event Update For 2019-09-24

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.

    Choices made now are critical for the future of our ocean and cryosphere

    Global warming has already reached 1°C above the pre-industrial level, due to past and current greenhouse gas emissions. There is overwhelming evidence that this is resulting in profound consequences for ecosystems and people. The ocean is warmer, more acidic and less productive. Melting glaciers and ice sheets are causing sea level rise, and coastal extreme events are becoming more severe. [more]

    Drilling open a smart door lock in 4 seconds

    The BBC asked us to have a look at some smart locks for a TV show recently. We didn’t have much prep time, but were genuinely shocked by just how easy this one was to compromise.

    Usually, we spend time looking at Bluetooth/RF, the mobile app, the API and then move on to hardware. This time we didn’t need to.

    It took us 4 seconds.

    like so many smart locks, its casing was made from an aluminium alloy. Why? Because consumers want attractive looking locks, with complex shapes and a range of colours. This is both easy and cheap with aluminium, and less so with steel.

    I think it took less than 2 seconds to drill the case.

    And now I can insert a small screwdriver, move the latch and open the door. How do you know where to drill it? The lock has the manufacturers logo on the front face – drill the side of the lock in line with the top of the logo. How helpful! [more]

  4. Residents told to stay indoors as INFERNO envelopes chemical plant in Rouen, France (PHOTO/VIDEOS)

    A massive blaze at a chemical factory in Rouen, France has prompted officials to close schools and direct nearby residents to stay indoors, amid reports that the fire could have a dangerous impact on the environment.
    Around 200 firefighters were called to the scene after the plant, operated by US multinational Lubrizol and owned by billionaire American investor Warren Buffett, caught fire in the early hours of Thursday.

    The factory, which produces oil additives, is formally classified as a high-risk area by the European Union, due to the dangerous nature of the chemicals that it makes and stores.

    Citing local media, Euronews reported that there was an “acrid smell” around the site of the blaze

    In 2013, a leak at the factory released fumes that smelled like rotten eggs. The odor reportedly drifted all the way to Paris. Two years later, more than 2,000 liters of mineral oil from the plant leaked into Rouen’s sewer system.

    Industrial facilities are vulnerable when struck by storms like Imelda, which dumped about 43 inches (109 centimeters) of rain last week, the Houston Chronicle reported.
