Event Update For 2020-07-26

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.

2020-07-26 - As plants spread across melting permafrost, their roots may release vast carbon stores:

Quote: "As plants begin to spread across melting permafrost, scientists are growing ever more worried their roots will stir microbes into unleashing vast stores of carbon. To scientists, roots are known as rhizomes, and when these tendrils extend deeper into the soil, it accelerates microbial decomposition by up to fourfold, potentially 'priming' the frozen ground for further thawing. This mechanism, known as the rhizosphere priming effect (RPE), has been known since the 1950s, and it could have a huge impact on one of Earth's most troubling carbon feedback loops. Yet today, no climate models include rhizomes as a risk factor for melting permafrost - in large part because the data simply doesn't exist."

Note: This is yet another self-reinforcing feedback loop. The warming melts more permafrost, which allows more plants to grow, which spread more roots into the ground, which releases more methane and CO2, which melts more permafrost, and so on and so on...

  1. Your blog is the best thing to wake up to imho, Jonny. We get humor, analysis, actual news stories, useful information, evolving environmental conditions and a theory that links it all (and more).

    1st off, the Skully and Molder caption, though pithy and humorous - is actually TRUE. Staying out of the water (including pools, lakes, streams, ponds, bays, reservoirs, shit - even showers and bath tubs!) is good advice, JJFH being what it is. Unfortunately, we can't avoid it.

    Secondly, we get to see recurring patterns as a result of JJFH
    like residential explosions, multiple vehicle fires, people dropping dead, having vehicular accidents due to JJFH induced "medical episodes," and drowning and dying from them too.

    Third, we discover completely weird happenings like people suddenly bursting into flames, wetland, bog and swamp fires, landfill, mulch and metal scrapyard fires, car wash fires, chemical and electrical infrastructure fires and more.

    So let's see what's going on so far this morning and last evening.

    Desperate calls for help from Arctic village of Svatay caged by wildfires

    Wildfires are raging all around the vast Republic of Sakha, also known as Yakutia, with a massive blanket of smoke visible from space in the far north beside the Arctic Ocean.

    A key power line connecting the town to the electricity grid was damaged in the fire, leaving its population of more than two thousand people to rely on an emergency generator.

    Visibility is near zero due to thick smoke, with gusty wind blowing fires stronger and helping them spread.

    Men, women, children and elderly people are all building wide strips of mineral soil to prevent the fire from reaching the village.

    ‘Currently the situation in Svatay is out of control’, said reporters of Srednekolymsk24 newspaper.

    ‘Reports from Svatay are alike to news from the frontline, with fight against the wildfires continuing day and night.

    ‘Firefighting equipment is giving up with three pumps breaking down. Locals need 20 more firefighting back packs and sleeves, and more support’, said regional Sakha News newspaper

    The problem of false positives from Covid-19 tests means UK is inflating its numbers – and taking wrong decisions

    When seven staff at a Scottish football club tested positive for coronavirus, alarm bells went off. But really alarming was when six of those results turned out to be wrong. Such inaccurate tests are exaggerating the problem.

    In Spain, half of the reported cases have been in people who had no symptoms. We know that many people who test positive never suffer any symptoms. But what if many of these people don't have Covid-19 at all?

    The difficulty at the moment is that there are relatively few cases of Covid-19 in the community, but more and more testing is being done. So even if the [bullshit] RT-PCR test has a high “specificity” – that is, a tiny fraction of test results are false positives – the number could actually be quite significant. [more]

  4. 600,000 Mistakenly Told They’ve Had Covid: ‘I Have NOT Been Tested’

    Tricare, a health care program of the United States Department of Defense Military Health System, mistakenly told more than 600,000 people they have had the China-originated novel coronavirus, asking the “COVID-19 survivors” to consider donating blood for research.

    In a mass email sent on July 17, more than 600,000 Tricare users in the military health system’s East Region were asked to consider donating blood for research based on their supposed status as COVID-19 “survivors,” reported last week. As noted in the report, “31,000 persons affiliated with the U.S. military have been diagnosed with the coronavirus,” showing a clear error in the mass email.

    Errors by other health care entities have likewise caused confusion at times about individuals’ COVID-19 status as well as infection rates. Earlier this month, Nashville man Brock Ballou said he received at least three calls from the state regarding his apparent symptoms after testing positive for the novel coronavirus. Mr. Ballou said he was never tested, however.

    Two weeks ago, the Florida State Health Department confirmed that some testing laboratories in the state have not been disclosing their negative novel coronavirus testing results accurately, skewing the positivity rates dramatically. At least two labs were discovered to have inflated their positivity rates of the virus by a factor of ten. [more; and these are the ones we know about!]

    Alarm over discovery of hundreds of Chinese fishing vessels near Galápagos Islands

    Ecuador has sounded the alarm after its navy discovered a huge fishing fleet of mostly Chinese-flagged vessels some 200 miles from the Galápagos Islands, the archipelago which inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.

    About 260 ships are currently in international waters just outside a 188-mile wide exclusive economic zone around the island, but their presence has already raised the prospect of serious damage to the delicate marine ecosystem, said a former environment minister, Yolanda Kakabadse.

    “This fleet’s size and aggressiveness against marine species is a big threat to the balance of species in the Galápagos,” she told the Guardian. [more]
