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):
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...

2014-04-18 - Block of flats under construction destroyed by fire at 5:19 AM in Tooting area of coastal London (Britain):
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...

2014-04-18 - Security guard has 'medical issue', collapses face-first into sump pond and dies, in Kanawha County (West Virginia):
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...

Note: 'Hey Bill, how many cows have you had explode this spring? I'm down about twelve myself.' Seriously, it's an explosively flammable gas, so that could happen! And you know somebody is gonna shoot one of those balloons from a distance, when it's got a full load, just to see what happens. Boom!
