Event Update For 2014-04-18





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.

2014-04-18 - Five oceanfront homes destroyed by raging 7-alarm blaze, others damaged, in coastal Sea Isle City (New Jersey):

http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Jersey-Shore-Sea-Isle-City-Fire--255812071.html

Quote: "Cell phone video shows the flames burning out of control, quickly spreading from one Sea Isle beachfront home to the next."

Quote: "I started getting nervous even though we were 12 houses away. I was thinking there’s a good possibility we need to get out."

Quote: "The seven-alarm fire required aid from 14 towns. Neighbors say two of the homes are seasonal and the owners were out of town. One was newly built. 'The house right there is a brand new house they were still putting in furniture in July,' neighbor Roberta Uniglicht said."

Quote: "Authorities continued their investigation Saturday into a Friday-afternoon fire that destroyed five vacation houses along the 7800 block of Pleasure Avenue in this Shore resort."

Note: And here's yet another monstrous fire in a coastal community. This fire wasn't nearly as bad as the 2000+ homes that were just wiped out on the coast in Chile (2014-04-12 update), or the 2000+ homes that were destroyed by fire on the coast in Davao in the Philippine Islands (2014-04-05 update), but still...pretty friggin' bad! There are 5 trillion pounds of flammable methane clathrate deposits dissociating off the US East Coast, and that process has just begun, so the fires and explosions that have been ravaging the US East Coast are very highly likely to get way way worse from here on out...

Note: And another building under construction goes up in flames. Buildings under construction are simply more vulnerable to the atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and methane contamination problem than are completed and well-insulated buildings, so it's now a race to get stuff built before it's destroyed by fire and/or explosions. Increasingly we are losing that race...

http://wvgazette.com/article/20140419/GZ01/140419201/1101
http://www.wowktv.com/story/25281543/dead-body-found-in-the-crown-hill-area-of-kanawha-county-wv

Quote: "The man, whose name has not yet been released, was found, 'face down in the sump pond along the berm,' according to Terrance Lively, spokesman for Homeland Security. A sump pond generally collects wastewater. The death was at the Crown Hill Dock mine, in Hansford. Crown Hill Dock is owned by Law River coal company. Cpl. Brian Humphreys, of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department said that an autopsy is pending, but 'It seemed to be related to a medical issue.'"

Note: The above two stories are essentially identical. One whiff of hydrogen sulfide and you might have a 'medical issue' and collapse unconscious or dead. Even if merely unconscious, if your face is in the water then you're gonna die anyway. Also, since it's a heavier-than-air gas, it will tend to end up in all the same places that water does. Hydrogen sulfide is also water-soluble and may kill you or sicken you via contact with contaminated water too...

Event Update For 2014-04-17





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.

http://www.nj.com/south/index.ssf/2014/04/mount_holly_on_alert_for_more_fires_from_arsonist.html

Note: Same thing here. No evidence presented of PEOPLE being involved, so arson is just an assumption based on the fact that most of the buildings have no gas or electricity, combined with the fire officials being ignorant of the problem we face. Did any of these buildings have any rusty iron steel in them, like brackets, hinges, pipes, exposed nails, old appliances, etc? Yes, I bet they did. In any case, they haven't ruled out hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rust as the cause, so they don't know if that caused these fires or not...

2014-04-17 - Catastrophic fires on the rise in the western United States:
http://www.ksl.com/?sid=29530360&nid=148&title=more-bigger-wildfires-scorching-western-states

Note: Because of the Earth's rotation, winds tend to blow west-to-east, so western coastal areas will tend to get hit harder by flammable methane and hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the oceans/seas/lakes. The same thing is happening in Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Chile, in the Philippine Islands, etc. That doesn't mean other coastal areas are safe. Quincy (Massachusetts) was getting hit by a 'rotten egg' odor last year blowing in off the Atlantic Ocean, for example, mentioned in the 2013-05-09 update. And the Inner Harbor suddenly turned milky green-white, all the fish died, and a 'rotten egg' odor was in the air, in coastal Baltimore (Maryland), on the East Coast, mentioned in the 2013-07-18 update. There are 2.5 billion tons of methane clathrate deposits dissociating off the East Coast, which is enough explosive energy to completely destroy the largest thousand cities on the planet if efficiently distributed, which it won't be. Most of that gas will blow eastward toward Britain and Scotland and Ireland, but some of it is coming up through the ground in New York and Pennsylvania (at least), and sometimes the winds will blow it ashore onto the East Coast too...

The fires were between Military Road and Elmwood Avenue in the Black Rock area, between Delaware Avenue and Linden Avenue in North Buffalo and behind Northland Avenue just east of Fillmore Avenue. Fire officials were investigating the cause of the fires as CSX Rail officials insisted none of their trains passing through the city were the problem."

Quote: "Two-way traffic has resumed on Highway 44 about 20 miles east of Redding after a semi-truck with a trailer carrying cars caught fire. One lane of Highway 44 has been closed west of Dersch Road after a car reportedly fell off a semi truck and caught on fire, according to the California Highway Patrol. The CHP’s website says that the brakes of the truck hauling new cars also caught on fire, igniting other cars the truck was carrying."

Note: So the brakes ignited and burned the truck and some cars on it AND a car fell off the hauler and burned too. Whew. From the full hypothesis: "Massive vehicles such as big RVs, buses, tanker trucks, tractor trailers, dump trucks, and car-haulers will be destroyed by fire in escalating numbers after tires or brakes ignite."

The mob thrashed the driver and set the bus on fire. Later, when the driver was handed over to the police, he said that the brakes of his bus had failed and that he could not control the vehicle as it crashed into the platform."

http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140417/NEWS/140419792/-1/rss01

Quote: "The car was traveling south on Carlton Road when it failed to stop at a posted stop sign and proceeded through the intersection with Upper Swiftwater Road, state police said. Once through the intersection, the vehicle struck a utility pole head-on, causing a power outage. The car then struck a large tree and caught fire, police said. There were no visible skid marks, police said."

Note: Might have already been on fire, possibly at the brakes. Either that or the driver was already unconscious or dead and therefore simply didn't brake. Or maybe it was both...

2014-04-17 - Volcano Ubinas belching ash in Peru, people evacuating, state of emergency declared:
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-27075323

Quote: "Ubinas, Peru's most active volcano, recently began spewing ash clouds up to 4km (two miles) high. An eruption of cinder and toxic gases in 2006 killed livestock and forced a similar evacuation. Last week, the Peruvian government declared a state of emergency in the provinces closest to the volcano to help those most-affected. Agriculture Minister Juan Benites said the residents and their 30,000 animals, including llamas and alpacas, would be moved to an area 20km (12 miles) away."
