Event Update For 2019-11-15

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.

2019-11-15 - Toxic fog kills birds, snow turns yellow, in Segezha (Russia), on the shore of Lake Vygozero, blamed on paper plant:

Quote: "According to residents, the city was plunged for several hours in a thick fetid fog that even killed many birds. Streets, cars and passerby were covered with some yellow rubbish snow. It was impossible to breathe anymore."

Quote: "During this chemical poisoning, birds started falling dead from the sky."

Quote: "First sources say a chemical leak from a paper factory seems to have been the cause of snow turning yellow and birds falling dead out of the sky in Segezha, Karelia."

Note: Sounds like a cloud of hydrogen sulfide hit this city. Paper and pulp plants produce hydrogen sulfide, so they would be a convenient target to blame if a cloud of hydrogen sulfide blows by and starts knocking birds (or people) dead. From the second link, "Pulp and paper mills have a common problem throughout the entire industry. The manufacturing process creates an unwanted bi-product, Hydrogen Sulfide gas." Also, elemental sulfur is yellow. Hydrogen sulfide reacting with ozone in the atmosphere will produce elemental sulfur, thus the yellow coloring in the snow there. Maybe it WAS a leak of hydrogen sulfide from a paper plant. Or maybe it wasn't, but that was just the handiest go-to explanation for the authorities to use to explain away a city being hit by a cloud of hydrogen sulfide...

2019-11-15 - Methane belching from coal mines could be as bad as the shipping and aviation industries combined:

Quote: "The methane emissions leaking from the world’s coalmines could be stoking the global climate crisis at the same rate as the shipping and aviation industries combined. Coalmines are belching millions of tonnes of methane into the atmosphere unchecked, because policymakers have overlooked the rising climate threat, according to new research."

    Electropollution, electrosmog, the new “demon” 5G cell service and the bad biological effects of non-ionizing radiation: A new warning from our friend in Alaska

    Dear Gary and Readers of The Big Wobble,

    While driving back to my cabin Tuesday the 29th of October I spied, much to my surprise while turning off the highway onto the side road that leads to my cabin, the piercing flash of a strobe light atop a new cell tower. Where did that tower come from? I made a call and was informed it had gone up the day before. I was not pleased, as it was just one more of many now in my part of Alaska. My guess is that it is to ready us for that “demon” 5-G cell service. And to make matters worse, it is much too close to my cabin to not bathe me in the bad biological effects of non-ionizing radiation, as my GPS location check confirmed.

    With this type of energetic air pollution, there are many causes for concern. For instance, it is known that both single and double-strand DNA will break down due to these cell phone frequencies. While single strand at times can heal, it is thought that double-strand DNA breaks will not repair and can lead to genetic mutations.

    Other problems such as poor memory and concentration, delayed reaction times, headaches, lower levels of both melatonin and serotonin, anxiety, chronic pain or pressure in the chest, shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, blood pressure problems, sleep disorders, chronic fatigue, and tinnitus are very common. Would this explain why all this month I have been battling nausea, dizziness, concentration problems, tinnitus, and oh yes - a migraine? [more, including suggestions]

    2020 El Nino could start 18 degree temperature rise

    To put such a temperature rise in perspective, humans will likely go extinct with a 3°C rise, while most if not all life on Earth will go extinct at 5°C rise, as discussed in an earlier post.

    The image below, from a recent study, indicates that El Niño is likely to come in 2020.

    An international team of scientists are forecasting an El Niño for 2020. "The probability of 'El Niño' coming in 2020 is around 80%", says Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Director Emeritus of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. [more]

    US Forest Service Fire Director interviewed about suicide among firefighters

    In 2018, a Florida State University professor and clinical psychologist who studies military suicides released a study that ruffled some feathers when it showed that wildland firefighters, in particular, were more likely to report clinically significant suicide symptoms than non-wildland firefighters. In the study, 55% of wildland firefighters reported experiencing thoughts about death by suicide, compared to 32% of non-wildland firefighters. Both of these percentages are staggering compared to NIH suicide data on the general population, which shows that 20% of people, on average, experience some suicidal thoughts. [more]

    Unfamiliar Ground: Bracing for Climate Impacts in the American Midwest

    Think of a Minnesota with almost no ice fishing. A Missouri that is as hot and dry as Texas. River and lake communities where catastrophic flooding happens almost every year, rather than every few generations.

    Earthquake swarm starts at Reykjanes volcanic system, Askja swarm still in progress, Iceland

    An earthquake swarm started on Reykjanes ridge, 45 km (28 miles) SW of Reykjanes, Iceland, around 12:00 UTC on November 16, 2019. As of early November 17, the swarm seems to be decreasing. The last confirmed eruption at this system took place in 1926 (VEI 0) NE of Eldey and lasted about 4 days. Six volcanic eruptions have occurred since 1 211 CE, on average every 130 years. The duration of these submarine eruptions is estimated based on contemporary records, and varies from a few days up to few weeks. [more]

    Sixth mass extinction well under way

    The Earth is currently experiencing an extinction crisis largely due to the exploitation of the planet by people. But whether this constitutes a sixth mass extinction depends on whether today's extinction rate is greater than the "normal" or "background" rate that occurs between mass extinctions.

    If we use the same approach to estimate today's extinctions per million species-years, we come up with a rate that is between ten and 10,000 times higher than the background rate.
