Event Update For 2021-02-19

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.

    Kerry Vows Aggressive Climate Steps as U.S. Rejoins Paris

    Presidential climate envoy John Kerry vowed on Friday that the U.S. would take aggressive steps to reduce its carbon emissions as the nation officially rejoins the Paris climate accord. [the "let's sit around and talk about it for a decade while partying" club]

    Under Obama, the U.S. had pledged to curb greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. But Kerry and other members of the Biden administration have signaled they intend to go well beyond that as they seek to re-establish their climate credibility with world leaders after four years of environmental rollbacks during the Trump administration. [so NOTHING was done during Obombya's years and now Kerry thinks Bejing Biden's gonna come to the rescue]

    Whatever the U.S. pledges comes on top of a sweeping $2 trillion climate plan proposed by Biden that calls for an emissions-free electric grid in 15 years, and a target of net-zero emissions across the entire economy by 2050.

    “The Paris Agreement is an unprecedented framework for global action,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement Friday. “We know because we helped design it and make it a reality. Its purpose is both simple and expansive: to help us all avoid catastrophic planetary warming and to build resilience around the world to the impacts from climate change we already see.” [more; WHAT are they going to actually DO?

    Sara Menker, CEO of Gro Intelligence, Believes Big Data Can Save Our Climate and Food Supply

    Gro Intelligence uses AI and machine learning to provide thousands of clients, ranging from big food companies like Unilever and Yum! Brands to financial institutions including BNP Paribas and Wells Fargo, with a host of data and analysis on the global agricultural ecosystem. In all, Gro computers hoover up 650 trillion data points from more than 40,000 data sets—crop forecasts, satellite images, topography, reports on precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration—to provide insights into 15,000 different agricultural products. The company also works with governments around the world on food-security issues to help them adequately plan for food reserves.

    I know you were very involved in trying to ward off famine as a result of the locust swarm in East Africa. Were you able to make a difference?

    Sometimes you know the impact you make, and sometimes you don’t. I think we moved the dial. I was frustrated we couldn’t move it more. It was very personal for me. I’ve seen it; I know what the effects could be. It sucks when human suffering is not treated equally.[more; they can do NOTHING of value in the face of climate change]

  4. Texas freeze led to release of tons of air pollutants as refineries shut

    Shutdowns led to the refineries flaring, or burning and releasing gases, to prevent damage to their processing units. That flaring darkened the skies in eastern Texas with smoke visible for miles.

    "These emissions can dwarf the usual emissions of the refineries by orders of magnitude," said Jane Williams, chair of the Sierra Club's National Clean Air Team.

    She said U.S. regulators must change policies that allow "these massive emissions to occur with impunity." [more; nice try]
