Event Update For 2021-04-19


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.

  1. Weary Wednesday Jonny, all.

    i have to take my dog to the vet this morning. i don't know if he gobbled a bee or has an abscessed tooth or what, but his jaw was swollen on one side and there's a lump in his throat on that side.
    He has no problem eating or drinking water.

    [let's start with inflation]
    The Price Of Plywood Is Absolutely Ridiculous – But It Is Also A Sign Of The Times

    Would you pay $100 for a sheet of plywood? I know that sounds absolutely crazy, but we are almost there. The price of plywood has been soaring into the stratosphere in recent weeks, and analysts are telling us that it will remain high for the foreseeable future. Memes about plywood have started to pop up all over social media, but this is no joking matter. These extraordinarily high prices are causing a lot of pain in the homebuilding industry, and many Americans have had to postpone construction plans indefinitely. Unfortunately, our national leaders continue to flood the system with even more new money, and that is going to cause even more extreme inflation in the months and years to come.

    “Food for thought — 3/4″ Plywood Standard:

    March 2020 – $37.98 /sheet

    February 2021 – $72.49 /sheet

    March 2021 – $83.49 /sheet

    April 2021 – $95.98 /sheet

    That is 252% price increase on one of the most used piece of common lumber for construction.”

    Speaking of insane, Dogecoin now has a total market value of approximately 50 billion dollars.

    Are you kidding me?

    Dogecoin doesn’t even pretend to be a serious cryptocurrency. It was started as a total joke, and nobody ever thought that it would have any real value.

    But thanks to Elon Musk and other proponents, Dogecoin really has gone to the moon. [more]

  2. Doc said it was most likely a sting or bite causing the mouth swelling (and the lump in his throat a reaction to it), ruling out an abscessed tooth. If it develops into something worse bring him back in. No charge for the consultation.

    Indonesia searching for missing submarine with 53 on board

    White House removes Trump-appointed scientist from overseeing climate report

    The Biden administration has removed Trump-appointed atmospheric scientist Betsy Weatherhead from her role overseeing a comprehensive report on how climate change is affecting the U.S., the Washington Post first reported Monday.

    Why it matters: Weatherhead has not been fired — merely reassigned to the U.S. Geological Survey — the move represents an effort by the Biden administration to remove Trump-era appointees from scientific roles

    he move could cause further delays to the next edition of the National Climate Assessment [currently due out in 2023], which is congressionally mandated to be produced every four years.

    Weatherhead's original appointment to the position in November came as a surprise given that she is a mainstream climate scientist whose work reflects that climate change is a serious threat — unlike some other Trump-appointees. [more]

    Man chops down 27 trees in Missouri national forest to sell the timber, feds say

    An Arkansas man pleaded guilty Monday to a tree-chopping spree in a Missouri national forest.

    Jamie Edmondson, 46, chopped down 27 walnut and white oak trees from the Mark Twain National Forest in Barry County between June 2019 and January 2020, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

    Prosecutors said Edmondson didn’t get permission from the U.S. Forest Service to remove the trees. [there's the "crime"]

    He’s accused of selling the timber at sawmills throughout the area. The timber was estimated to be worth $20,269, officials said.

    Federal agents installed surveillance cameras after the first trees were cut down and taken from the forest. The cameras later caught images of Edmondson’s truck, according to officials, and authorities later located the vehicle.

    Officials said the ecological damage to the forest and cost to reverse it is estimated at more than $40,000. [more; pay up, thief]
