Event Update For 2019-12-12

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.

2019-12-12 - Unknown rotten egg odor hits large area in Bellaire (West Virginia), schools evacuated:

Quote: "Throughout the village, crews inspected sewers, cracks and openings in the streets and sidewalks, lawns, and around buildings’ exteriors and interiors to ensure there was no leak, Rau said. 'They have a gas detector they use to test for methane, the primary component of natural gas,' he said. Crew members are well trained and thorough in detecting any leaks, Rau said. 'At this point we believe the odor is coming from somewhere else,' he said. After an extensive inspection around parts of the village, crews found no indication of a gas leak."

Quote: "Officials aren’t sure what they’re looking for, or where to look, as a smell was also detected across the river in Marshall County."

Note: Bellaire runs right along the Ohio River...

2019-12-12 - High school hit by rotten egg odor, likely hydrogen sulfide, in Mead (Washington):

Quote: "Mt. Spokane High School was briefly evacuated Thursday afternoon due to initial concerns of a gas leak. The Mead School District Superintendent's Office tells KHQ that the school was evacuated due to the smell of gas, but an investigation found it was methane from a sewer."

Note: There are two sewer gases, methane and hydrogen sulfide. They thought it was a gas leak, so that means a rotten egg odor, so they must have smelled hydrogen sulfide. Obviously they couldn't have smelled methane, since no human being has ever smelled methane, because it's odorless. There may have been methane present, but nobody smelled it if it was present...

2019-12-12 - Passenger plane hit by unknown odor, plane makes emergency landing in coastal Melbourne (Australia):

Quote: "'Unusual odour' noticed on board Tiger Air flight before emergency landing in Melbourne..."

Quote: "Three passengers were taken to hospital after a Tiger Air flight bound for Sydney was forced to make an emergency landing in Melbourne. Flight number TT644 touched down at Melbourne Airport just before 8pm on Thursday - after passengers complained of fumes in the cabin."

2019-12-12 - Small plane hit by smoke, plane crash-lands along I-5 in coastal Carlsbad (California):

2019-12-12 - Wildfires burning since August have spewed almost half of Australia's annual greenhouse gas emissions:

Quote: "Bushfires in New South Wales and Queensland have emitted a massive pulse of CO2 into the atmosphere since August that is equivalent to almost half of Australia’s annual greenhouse gas emissions, Guardian Australia can reveal."

Note: So if this is the 'new normal' then even if Australia were to reduce its emissions to zero, its emissions would still continue rising simply from the burning of wildfires across Australia. Imagine how much emissions will rise as more and more of the Earth burns up. And that's already begun, with the raging wildfires in recent years in Siberia, Alaska, California, Indonesia, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Australia, Southern Africa, above the Arctic Circle in Norway and Sweden, etc, etc. Even Greenland has begun to see once-unheard-of peat fires as the ground there thaws...

  1. Good morning Jonny and all your readers.

    As we see from these news items, the toxic, flammable H2S and CH4 are a real problem now - evacuating buildings, causing massive fires, vehicle crashes, people dropping dead and more.
    There's no "getting used to it."

    Hopes dim as COP25 delegates dicker over Article 6 and world burns: critics

    Even as half a million protesters demonstrate outside, UN climate summit negotiators inside Madrid’s COP25 seem blind to the urgency of the climate crisis. In fact, instead of making effective progress, the rules they’re shaping to carry out the Paris Agreement’s Article 6 could worsen carbon emissions, not staunch them.
    For example, Article 6 doesn’t include rules to protect native forests. Instead it could promote turning forests into monoculture tree plantations — providing minimal carbon sequestration and no ecosystem services, while devastating biodiversity. Some critics think the policy may have been shaped by logging interests.
    The so-called biomass carbon accounting loophole is also not up for discussion. Its continuance will allow the burning of biomass wood pellets at power plants, energy production classified by the UN as carbon neutral. However, establised science has found that industrial biomass burning will add significantly to carbon emissions.
    According to activists at COP25, delegates are working to hide emissions and allow UN carbon accounting loopholes. One key aspect of Article 6 found in the original Paris Agreement which guaranteed “the protection of human rights” was deleted from a revised draft Saturday night, as was verbiage assuring civil society and indigenous consultations.

    The enormity of the problem is hard to get one's head around: Untold millions of tons of wildlife died in 2019 from natural disasters, extreme weather events, disease, famine: Radiation officially reported

    Untold millions of deaths.
    Hundreds of millions of pigs dead, a quarter of the world's population due to disease
    A study showed an increase in levels of Fukushima-related contamination off the shores of Alaska
    A study by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa revealed almost 50% of fish consumed on the islands of Hawai’i were contaminated with caesium 134 the radioactive finger-print of Fukushima.
    The report also showed that migrating organisms can transport the Fukushima-signature (caesium 134) over significant distances as they showed detectable 134Cs (6.3±1.5 Bq/kg) in Pacific bluefin tuna caught off the California coast only a year after the incident.
    Another study found caesium 134 in longfin tuna (Albacore) along the western coast of the US just one year after the Fukushima disaster.
    High levels of radiation had been monitored in giant clams close to the Central Pacific site where the United States entombed waste from nuclear testing almost four decades ago

  2. Queensland school runs out of water as commercial bottlers harvest local supplies

    The Tamborine Mountain state school has run out of water, even as water miners in the Gold Coast hinterland are sending millions of litres to commercial bottling operations.

    Trucks sent by the Queensland government carrying emergency supplies to the school, including Mount Tamborine bottled water, have been passing trucks heading in the opposite direction taking local water to bottling plants for beverage giants such as Coca-Cola.

    The school remains open but parents have been advised by teachers to consider keeping their children at home.

    Water miners in the Mount Tamborine area supply roughly 130m litres of water each year to commercial bottling operations. Now the local bores are running dry. [more; becoming policy]
