The Jumping Jack Flash Hypothesis


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.

That accident damaged beaches in France, Spain and Portugal, and led to the closure of one of Spain's richest fishing areas."

2018-01-09 - Australian birds have apparently weaponized fire as a hunting tool:
http://www.livescience.com/61375-fire-s ... ptors.html
http://nationalpost.com/news/world/aust ... nized-fire
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2018 ... australia/

Quote: "The concept of fire-foraging birds is well established. Raptors on at least four continents have been observed for decades on the edge of big flames, waiting out scurrying rodents and reptiles or picking through their barbecued remains. What’s new, at least in the academic literature, is the idea that birds might be intentionally spreading fires themselves. If true, the finding suggests that birds, like humans, have learned to use fire as a tool and as a weapon."
