Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

The Brazilian air force conducted a search mission over the Atlantic Ocean looking for the missing plane, Brazilian television said.

Flight AF 447 with 216 passengers and 12 crew reportedly left Rio de Janeiro on Sunday at 19:00 local time and was scheduled to land in Paris on Monday at 11:15 (05:15 EDT).

Air France announced on Monday that it had no “news from flight AF 447, which was flying on the Rio de Janeiro – Paris Charles de Gaulle route and was scheduled to arrive at 11.15 a.m. today [05:15 EDT).”

It’s not yet known when or where the plane vanished, but it seems the Gremlins were pulling one of their usual stunts on Air France because, regardless of the timeline, both Sunday  (May 31) and Monday (June 1) were odd days the month. See Second Airbus Plunges into Water.

Despite this oddity, flying airbus is still twice safer statistically on odd days of the month than even.
