Event Update For 2020-09-11

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.

2020-09-11 - Japan and the US to test methane hydrate extraction in Alaska:

Note: This is very expensive to do, requiring a lot of energy and resources. Economically speaking, this makes little or no sense. However, I suspect that the reason for extracting hydrates has less to do with using it as a source of energy and more to do with extracting it and burning it (thereby turning it into CO2) rather than waiting for it to explode out of the ocean by itself as the oceans warm, which would flood the atmosphere with methane, a much more powerful (and flammable) greenhouse gas, thereby ushering in our extinction dramatically faster. In other words, having it to burn it for energy is merely a side effect of the real goal. If this isn't even a break-even enterprise economically, it's still worth doing in the 'let's postpone apocalypse a little longer' sense...


  1. Sleep-in Sunday here, Jonny. Hello everyone reading JJFH.

    Each week brings more environmental destruction. Wildfires and hurricanes here in the states (not to mention the on-going megadrought), while elsewhere flooding, fires, tornadoes, hail locust swarms and the like destroy crops and lives.

Thus, the ecosystem is inordinately weakened in the face of human-generated firestorms, further weakening this beleaguered ecosystem. [more]

    Sunday storms in northeastern US to usher in cooler air, frost potential

    Drenching showers and thunderstorms will mark the arrival of another push of cooler air into the Northeast on Sunday, and forecasters cannot rule out the potential for temperatures to dip to frosty levels across the northern tier early this week.

    The corridor of unsettled weather first drenched the Midwest at the beginning of the weekend. By early Sunday morning, showers and thunderstorms were dampening the central Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

    By Sunday afternoon, the zone of drenching showers and thunderstorms is forecast to move through New York state and the central Appalachians.

    "Temperature readings in the middle to lower 40s could reach as far south as central Pennsylvania and the hills of northern Connecticut," Roys said.

    By Tuesday, high temperatures will be 60s F across a large part of the interior Northeast, about 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit below mid-September averages. [more; see map if interested]
