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.

2017-02-26 - Humans wiping out animal life around the planet:
Quote: "Half of all animals on Earth will be extinct by the end of the century, and one in five are already at risk, according to a new report. A team of the world’s top biology experts warn that humans are killing off the animal kingdom by sucking up the world’s natural resources at disturbing new rates, the UK Guardian reports. 'We grab all the fish from the sea, wreck the coral reefs and put carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. We have triggered a major extinction event. The question is: How do we stop it?' Biologist Paul Ehrlich, of Stanford University in California, told the paper."
Note: We don't stop it because stopping it is far beyond the capabilities of human civilization. The extinction event that has begun is unstoppable, and we will be expunged from the surface of the Earth just like the animals we've been wiping out, and not in some far off century either...
