Event Update For 2019-12-25

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.

  1. Good morning Jonny, Fran, Mike D., Tom N., LL, Terry, FezzedOne, Panther & anyone else reading JJFH this morning.

    That last story, as Fran says in her comment from yesterday, doesn't look good. We're already awash in radiation spewed into the atmosphere from all the past nuclear testing, the big 3 nuke accidents and the continued "controlled releases" every day from the too-many still operating nuclear plants. The Fuk release certainly won't help. Plus, it adds to all the other detritus being dumped there - particulates, chemicals, microwave radiation, and more, which is added to all the CO2, CH4, H2S, O3, wildfire smoke, smog and more.

    Breathing, already problematic for many, is becoming worse for everyone.
