Event Update For 2019-11-20

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.

    How attackers could hijack your android camera to spy on you

    an attacker can control the app to take photos and/or record videos through a rogue application that has no permissions to do so. Additionally, we found that certain attack scenarios enable malicious actors to circumvent various storage permission policies, giving them access to stored videos and photos, as well as GPS metadata embedded in photos, to locate the user by taking a photo or video and parsing the proper EXIF data [3]. This same technique also applied to Samsung's Camera app. [more]

    2 Air Force Base Airmen Killed in 'Aircraft Mishap' During Training Mission in Oklahoma

    Two Air Force Base airmen died during a training mission in Oklahoma on Thursday, though the cause of the fatal crash remains unknown.

    While both airmen in one of the planes perished, the two men in the other aircraft were not hurt, Col. Corey Simmons said at a press conference later in the day, according to Air Force Times.

    Footage of the aftermath captured by KOCO 5 News shows both planes, T-38 Talons, crashed in a field at the Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, which is about 65 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. One of the planes was upside down as a result of the crash.

    Details as to what caused the crash and whether or not the planes collided in the air remain unknown, and Simmons said that an investigation by the Air Force Safety Board is currently underway, though it could take up to two months for the investigation to be completed. [more]

  3. Ah, Friday afternoon, the gig-work teaching week is over [not a lot of on-the-job hours, but i'm buried in paperwork (unpaid time) and way behind on my landscaping chores as a result].

    "get relaxed"

    i'm seeing the breakdown in social order already. Murders everyday. People [men, women and young people] shooting at cops on a regular basis, besides beating, stabbing or mobbing-up on random innocent by-stander victims.

    Traffic is becoming chaotic, whether it's someone on drugs or otherwise zombied out - as Jonny documents every day - there's ridiculous driving - like they're in a race or running-from-the-law kinda crazy - there's nutso accidents, huge rolling piles of freight being asked to stop on a dime, foot-ball field sized skid marks and COUNTLESS dead animals on the side and mangled to garbage still on the road.

    Banks are about to fail, so money will be of no value and lawlessness will make its grand entrance. The population is about to plummet, once the food shortages that HAVE to be coming (but we nothing about it) hit, possibly as soon as next year.

    Meanwhile everything changes, and we can keep up right now to some degree or other, but that's subject to change too. If this 5G crap goes through and they start ramping that up, we've read what we can expect. Add to that all the climate change effects that continue to outstrip our expectations, enormously expensive, damaging storms - even when people have time to "prepare!" - more unbelievable lightning strikes (see MrMBB333 videos), tornadoes (and now in never-before-seen places), crippling droughts, monsoon-like rain and flooding - there's no preparing and no place to hide.

    Always in the background we have CH4 and H2S (and lots of others, like ozone) leaking steadily into the atmosphere, at ever-increasing rates, currently (it's possible and highly probable that a methane burst can occur at any time).

    So to conclude, next year is going to be 'interesting.'

    Dangerous levels of warming locked in by planned jump in fossil fuels output

    Global governments plan to produce 120 percent more fossil fuels by 2030, drastically at odds with the 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) warming limit they all agreed to under the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. All major fossil fuel-producing nations—including the United States, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, Canada, and Australia—have ambitious plans to increase production, according to a new report by leading research organizations and the United Nations.

    'Delete WhatsApp unless you're OK with surveillance,' founder of rival Telegram messenger warns
    WhatsApp is a "Trojan horse" exploited to snoop on millions of users naive enough to believe that the Facebook-owned messenger differs from its parent company, long beset by privacy scandals, Telegram founder Pavel Durov said.

    In a lengthy post on his Telegram channel on Wednesday, Durov took aim at one of his brainchild's biggest rivals - WhatsApp, the world's leading messaging app, which became a Facebook subsidiary in 2014 and boasts some 1.5 billion monthly active users.

    "Regardless of the underlying intentions of WhatsApp's parent company, the advice for their end-users is the same: Unless you are cool with all your photos and messages becoming public one day, you should delete WhatsApp from your phone."

    The Russian-born entrepreneur pulled no punches, citing a long record of privacy-related violations by Facebook to back up his case. [more]

    A mother and daughter casually driving along the streets of Flores da Cunha in Brazil were swallowed up by a giant sinkhole which suddenly opened up in the road before them.

    Hail hits Phoenix, snow plagues Denver and the weather forecast ahead of holiday travel rush

    Meanwhile, heavy hail struck Phoenix, Arizona, coating roads and neighborhoods, nearly looking like snow.

    That same storm brought about 1 inch of snow and freezing rain to Denver Thursday night, causing dangerous driving conditions and a crash involving over 50 cars. [more]

    Washington state deals setback to massive methanol plant

    Washington state dealt a setback Friday to efforts to build one of the world’s biggest methanol plants on the Columbia River, saying that five years in, its backers had failed to provide enough information about its greenhouse gas emissions and how they would be offset.

    The $2 billion Northwest Innovation Works project would take natural gas from Canada and convert it into methanol, which would be shipped to China to make olefins — compounds used in everything from fabrics and contact lenses to iPhones and medical equipment.

    Backers, including Cowlitz County and and Port of Kalama, said the project would reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by displacing China’s use of coal to make methanol. They provided regulators with a third-party analysis suggesting that over the project’s life it would reduce global emissions by at least 10 million metric tons per year.

    They called that the single largest initiative in Washington for reducing emissions — equivalent to removing more than 2 million cars from the road.

    But environmental groups said there was no evidence to support that, and in its decision Friday, the Washington Department of Ecology said further review was necessary “to determine the adequacy of the proposed mitigation for the Project.” [more]

    After campaign by young activists, Miami declares ‘climate emergency.’ It’s symbolic, for now.

    Miami is officially in a state of emergency over climate change, delighting local youth activists that have been pushing the city to declare a “climate emergency” for months.

    The declaration led one youth, Nicholas Vazquez of the Miami chapter of climate action group Extinction Rebellion, to end a three-day hunger strike. Another, 20-year-old Danilo de la Torre, had been protesting outside Miami City Hall every Friday for 26 weeks with the Miami chapter of climate group Fridays for Future in hopes of seeing the city declare a climate emergency.
