Event Update For 2019-10-08

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.

    BLACK BEAR NEWS 10.9.19 INTERVIEW: Torstein Vidal [~ 61.5 min.]

    Tipping point breached! The time at which a change or an effect cannot be stopped. We are entering our last 30 years as a civilised species on this planet. [i give it half that]

    As we enter 2020, the years 2015 to 2019 have been the warmest five-year period on record, according to the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO). Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere have also increased to record levels, locking in the warming trend for generations to come. Extreme weather, heatwaves, country-size wildfires, droughts, flooding and water-stress are commonplace across the globe and are increasing yearly. This summer Europe smashed heat records in many countries, here in my back garden in North Holland I was astonished to record a temperature of 41 deg C (106 deg F) in the shade during July, just down the road from me, Paris, France hit temperatures in the high 40’s C (around 115 deg F), unheard of in this part of the world.

According to Japan Today, Super Typhoon Hagibis is heading nearer Tokyo, Japanse most densely populated area, ahead of big the Rugby World Cup weekend and could affect several crucial games.

    An “All-Out Blizzard” That Is “Unheard Of For October” Is About To Hit Farms In The Midwest With Up To 2 Feet Of Snow

    Farmers in the middle of the country are about to get hit by what could potentially be the worst October blizzard in U.S. history. According to USA Today, “the massive size and intensity of this snowstorm is unheard of for October”. In other words, we have never seen anything like this in the month of October ever before. Such a storm would have been disastrous enough in a normal year, but this has definitely not been a normal year for Midwest farmers. [more]

    Early snow stalls western Canadian harvest

    Farmers have been as busy as possible trying to get as much harvested as possible before frost and snow ruined crops and stalled the process.

    An early crop killing frost and snowfall on the last day of summer, dumped anywhere from 10 cm to one metre of snow across various regions of Alberta, basically halting harvesting. In the south, 60 per cent of the canola crop had been harvested, but province-wide less than 16 per cent had been combined. Province wide wheat harvesting was only 35 per cent complete.

Significant travel disruptions, power outages, and impacts to agriculture and livestock are all anticipated. [more]

Weirdly, there are no signs of buzzards, coyotes or other scavengers. His red coat is as shiny as if he were going to the fair, but he's bloodless and his tongue and genitals have been surgically cut out. [more]

    Lorenzo delivered several US-based birds to Irish shores, but none as rare as the Bittern. It is only the 10th time one has been found on this side of the Atlantic.
