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.

2014-04-20 - Power station rocked by explosion and fire in coastal Gibraltar (Britain), city goes dark, gambling disrupted:
Quote: "Local media reported a generator at Waterport Power Station caught fire and exploded due to a mechanical failure. No-one was injured, but the outage shut down the online betting operations of several firms, including William Hill, Betfred and Ladbrokes, which are based in Gibraltar. Online gambling is an important part of Gibraltar's economy with international companies choosing to base themselves there because of the territory's low taxes. The outage meant many people were unable to play bets online on a busy Easter Sunday of sport."
Note: I'd wager that they have more problems like this...
2014-04-20 - Transformer bursts into flame on street in Amherst (New York), 2596 homes go dark:
2014-04-20 - Transformer bursts into flame near university in Imphal (India):

Quote: "Powerful explosions occurred in the provincial capital Lahore of Punjab on Sunday; injuring dozens of children aged between 10-17 following gas balloons explosions while they were playing in a playground."
Note: What are they using in the balloons? Helium is normally used and helium is an inert non-flammable gas...

2014-04-20 - Propane tank explodes inside minivan in St. Paul (Minnesota), 1 injured:

2014-04-20 - Landfill fires causing problems on the island of St. Kitts:
Note: From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool."
2014-04-20 - Massive heath fire erupts at Hoge Veluwe National Park near Arnhem (Netherlands) thousands evacuated:
Quote: "The Hoge Veluwe national park near Arnhem was evacuated on Sunday because of a massive heath fire. Between 1,500 and 2,500 visitors were in the park at the time. Visitors to the Kroller Muller museum and its personnel were also ordered to leave and according to some reports, the works of art have been moved to a fire-resistant storage depot."
Quote: "A large wildfire destroyed at least 530 hectares (1,300 acres) in the Netherlands' Hoge Veluwe National Park on Sunday, one of the worst fires seen in the region for decades, Dutch authorities said."
2014-04-20 - Chemical warehouse hit by massive blaze in the wee hours in Leeds (Britain):

Nearby streets have been cordoned off and members of the public advised to close windows and doors due to large amounts of smoke."

2014-04-20 - Train locomotive bursts into flame in downtown Missoula (Montana):
Quote: "Steve Paske, battalion chief with the Missoula Fire Department, said nobody was injured when the braking unit caught fire. A smaller locomotive engine was brought in to tow the damaged engine to a side track, and Paske said MRL was bringing in another engine to hook up and pull the train away. He said the engineer on the train told him the engine cars were very new, and that in his 12 years of doing the job he hadn’t seen a mechanical failure like this one."
Note: So trains are not immune to the brake-fire problem. Still, it doesn't seem to be affecting them anywhere nearly as badly as tractor trailers and other heavy vehicles with rubber tires...

Note: That's why it's so dangerous to leave your firebomb...er, vehicle...parked in an attached garage or near your home: when the vehicle ignites then you can end up without a vehicle OR a home, and you might just end up dead too, as many others have...
Quote: "A 'for sale' sign was posted at the front of the property before the fire broke out."
Note: I think they can take that sign down now, or else add 'REAL CHEAP' to it...

2014-04-20 - Car veers over centerline, hits car head-on, in Pelican Rapids (Minnesota), 2 injured:
Note: Look at the above five head-on crashes: Fisher Ferry Road, island of Guam, Margaret River, Balch Springs, Pelican Rapids. What do they all have in common? Bodies of water. Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas which and so it will tend to accumulate wherever water does, and it can knock you unconscious or dead with one or two breaths. So this is exactly what you'd expect to see, drivers near bodies of water losing consciousness or dying while driving and then veering around and slamming into other vehicles, or trees, or buildings. The gas will blow around to other areas too, so you won't be immune anywhere, but you'll be MORE in danger near bodies of water and other low-lying areas (canyons, valleys, ravines, etc), or downwind of them...
