Also, the burning eyes and difficulty breathing: those are symptoms of hydrogen sulfide, for sure. Remember the birds that came down in Beebe? Some
of their eyes had EXPLODED. Hydrogen sulfide can make blood vessels burst and cause bruising. Eyes are full of blood vessels. That's one reason I
tried so hard to find pics from WWI when the British weaponized hydrogen sulfide for use against the Germans during trench warfare - do PEOPLES' eyes
sometimes explode too, if the concentration is high enough? And if so, what does that look like? Does it look like 'gunshot to the head'? Because
there have been lots of people dying with 'gunshot to the head' lately, if you see what I'm saying here...
I'd like two Sewage Class tickets to Mars!
Jonny mentioned in this exchange that areas around the Gulf Coasts are most vulnerable to any plumes coming in off the Gulf of Mexico. I brought my
family down to Florida over the winter of 2013-14 to sell merchandise in flea markets and craft shows. We traveled around quite a bit, from areas
around Port Charlotte, north to Ocala and over to Daytona Beach. I’ve been traveling to Florida all of my life visiting friends who live in Port
Charlotte or family residing just north of Tampa. I must say that this was the first time I recall smelling ‘rotten egg’ odors in various plumes.
We’d be driving along and suddenly, we’d smell the foul odor and just look at each other in worry, of course, since I began studying this threat
over a year prior.
We were in Florida for two months and we experienced the ‘rotten egg’ smell on at least a dozen occasions. Thankfully, the hydrogen sulfide doses
stayed at a safe level where we could smell it, but, this is frightening to think about for residents of the southern Gulf States. At this rate, the
plumes may escalate in size and potency, creating a real threat all too soon for the people living there. One night in Ocala, we smelt the odor at two
different stops along I-75 exits. We then went to the Wal-mart store on the south side of town and didn’t smell it when we arrived. About 15 minutes
later we came out of the store and the stench was very strong in the parking lot. We were spooked and could do nothing but think about getting out of
Ocala and quickly.
I might add that since leaving Florida in mid-January, 2014, to the final writing of this book in March of 2014, for the north woods of Wisconsin, I
haven’t smelt the ‘rotten egg’ again. Not along the freeway driving home, and not since returning to Wisconsin.
Even more disconcerting about our visit to Florida was the stink of ‘rotten egg’ in the water at every location we visited. We stayed on several
occasions over night at our friends in Port Charlotte, and every so often, the gas smell would emanate from their faucets, in the sinks and the
shower. We also experienced this at various hotels throughout Florida. My friend would always say, “Oh, that’s just Florida water.” I had been
traveling to Florida all of my life, we even lived there over the winter of 2000-01, and I don’t ever recall the water being pungent. I know the
water is bad, but to actually have gas in the water wasn’t normal. I tried to explain that to him claiming that, yes, the water in Florida is bad
such as too much iron, but to have gas present in your water supply was not normal.
Before concluding, here is a section of an article I’d like to reprint, written by Isabel Guiterrez. The full article is called Global
Warming/Greenhouse Effect. This section examines the consequences of global warming.
Global Warming/Greenhouse Effect
Consequences of Global Warming
by Isabel Guiterrez
A rise in global temperatures of even 10 to f C will have drastic consequences, affecting all of earth's ecosystems. At the peak of the last ice
age, 18,000 years ago, the planet was only about 5" C cooler than it is today. It is also known that during the past million years, the sustained
temperature has never been more than a few degrees higher than it is today.
The rising of sea levels will probably be the most severe consequence of global warming. Scientists estimate that sea levels may rise 0.5 to 1.5
meters in the next 50 to 100 years, assuming there is no breakup of the West Antarctic ice sheet. The rise will be due to the melting of mountain
glaciers and the thermal expansion of ocean water.
If sea levels rise as estimated, the chance of flooding will increase. Flooding will damage coastal structures, destroy wetlands, and cause saltwater
intrusion into rivers and water supplies near the ocean. Since 1/3 of the world's population lives in low lying coastal areas, flooding would present
a great risk to much of the world. Among the big cities in immediate danger if flooding occurs, are Bangkok, Galveston, Miami, New Orleans, New York,
Rotterdam, Taipei, and Venice.
The melting of ice caps will also contribute to rising sea levels, causing them to rise more than currently predicted. It is now unclear whether this
can be expected to occur. Scientists predict that the ice cap on East Antarctica will not melt in the foreseeable future. The West Antarctic ice
sheet, however, since it is in contact with ocean waters, has a higher probability of melting. There is data, however, suggesting that it has been
intact for several million years.
The regional effects of global warming on agriculture are still unclear. It is known that global warming will affect the length of the growing season
and the intensity of heat waves and rainfall. Perhaps the most determinant of these factors will be the amount of precipitation in these regions.
Model predictions have disagreed in their projections for regional rainfall. The general consensus seems to be that global warming will have
deleterious effects on water supplies because more water will be required for irrigation to combat the effects of heat stress.
Global warming in certain regions may have a positive effect on agriculture. Rising global temperatures will shift the crop growing region from south
to north in the Northern Hemisphere. If food growing acreage remains the same, but moves north, productivity would not necessarily remain the same.
This is because there is no guarantee that soil quality will be the same in the South.
Another uncertain factor is how plants will respond to a warmer world and increased levels of C02. Certain plants will actually benefit from higher
levels of carbon dioxide and will grow at a quicker rate. High carbon dioxide levels also cause some plants to use water more efficiently.
Unfortunately, crops fertilized with excess carbon dioxide may be more susceptible to pests and diseases, and weeds will generally benefit more than
New studies have revealed that global warming will also aggravate air pollution. As the climate warms, fewer and weaker storms, combined with sluggish
movement of air masses, will be expected. As a result, dirty air masses will be left hovering over industrial centers longer than they are today. Smog
will form closer to its sources, primarily in the centers of cities and industrial areas. This same study predicts that in a warmer climate there will
be more evaporation of moisture into the air, thus increasing humidity by 30% to 40%.
