2013 - APR - Other Stories


2013-04-29 - Man collapses at diner, heart stops beating, in coastal Bellevue (Washington), resuscitated:

2013-04-27 - Firefighters train to handle large-vehicle accidents, in Auburn (New York):

Quote: "A pickup truck sagged under the crushing weight of a fallen cylindrical cement block. A smashed silver sedan stood sandwiched underneath a tractor trailer. A cement truck laid on its side on a blacktop bed covered in glinting shards of shattered glass. And inside every mortally wounded vehicle sat an injured individual in need of rescuing."

Note: Good idea...

2013-04-25 - Firefighter suddenly collapses while directing traffic, stops breathing, resuscitated, in Portville (New York):

Note: He'd just been at the scene of a three-car accident and stayed to help direct traffic. That's when he collapsed and almost died. Portville is right on the Allegheny River...

2013-04-25 - Odor of natural gas sends firefighters to middle school for 3rd time in a week in Springfield (Massachusetts):

Quote: "Each time around, no evidence of natural gas was detected, Dennis Leger, aide to Fire Commissioner Joseph Conant, said."

Note: Natural gas doesn't actually HAVE an odor. They add mercaptan to it so that is what people smell, and it smells like 'rotten eggs'. And so does hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations. So they may be smelling hydrogen sulfide and confusing its 'rotten egg' odor with the odor of mercaptan, and that's why they aren't detecting any natural gas - because there isn't any there to detect...

2013-04-24 - Police in London, Ontario (Canada) issue public safety announcement pertaining to hydrogen sulfide:

Quote: "Should members of the public come upon someone who appears to be sleeping in a vehicle or another enclosed space and is unresponsive they should call police immediately and use extreme caution in attempting to access the victim. Prior to opening the vehicle door, look inside for written signs or chemicals being used. The gas concentration in the vehicle will be extremely high and inhalation of the fumes may be fatal to the responder."

Quote: "If inhaled at low levels it can cause eye irritation, sore throat, cough, nausea, shortness of breath and fluid in the lungs. Moderate exposure can cause fatigue, loss of appetite, vomiting, staggering, headaches and arability. Concentrated high exposure can cause convulsions, amnesia, respiratory paralysis and death by asphyxiation."

Quote: "Hydrogen sulphide is a gas that smells like rotten eggs and is not present in vehicles unless introduced there by the victim. The danger to responders and public are that this gas is very similar to cyanide and it is five times more toxic than carbon monoxide. In some instances, victims have posted notes on vehicle windows warning rescuers not to enter the vehicle."

Note: Well, that's not ALL true. Do they think that cars are magically immune to penetration by hydrogen sulfide from natural sources like landfills, sewers and the dead zones in the oceans? If that were so then nobody driving a car in Southern California would have smelled the hydrogen sulfide that was purportedly coming off the Salton Sea during that stinkfest event there...but everyone smelled it, including people in cars, so of course it may be present in vehicles even if the victim didn't introduce it...

2013-04-24 - More than 30 children sicken at school in coastal Tripoli (Libya), blamed on contaminated water:

Quote: "The students, who age less than 12, were taken to Dar al-Shifa hospital after suffering from pain in the abdomen, vomiting, diarrhea and having difficulty breathing."

Note: Contaminated with what? Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble...

2013-04-24 - Methane detected in neighborhood in Tuscon (Arizona), but nobody knows where it's coming from:

2013-04-24 - Man, 75, evacuated from his boat after medical emergency, near the Gaviota Pier in coastal Gaviota (California):

2013-04-23 - Palm Beach Atlantic University science lab evacuated after guards have eye irritation, in coastal Palm Beach (Florida):

Note: Hydrogen sulfide will itself irritate eyes, but it's also reactive with numerous chemicals that might be found in science labs like this, and those reactions may also produce eye irritants. Florida is downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now...

2013-04-23 - Two teens, 17 and 18, go canoeing at Nicola Lake (Canada), go missing:

Note: They'll probably eventually find their empty 'ghost boat' canoe and then the corpses...

2013-04-23 - Eight-story building collapses near Dhaka (Bangladesh), near the Buriganga River, 25 killed, 500 injured:

2013-04-22 - Large fishing ship that burst into flame last week in Antarctic waters has finally sunk:

Quote: "A Chinese factory fishing ship that burned last week off Antarctica has sunk without anyone on board, Chile's navy said Monday. The vessel Kai Xin caught fire and its 97 crew members were rescued by a Norwegian ship. Then it began to drift in unmanned and in flames, zigzagging dangerously close to glaciers. The Chilean navy said an official representing the ship's owner confirmed that the vessel went down Sunday afternoon near Bransfield Strait at the Antarctic peninsula."

Note: The fire that caused this vessel to be evacuated was mentioned in the 2013-04-17 update...

2013-04-21 - Woman dies in apartment in Valencia (Spain), her German Shepherd gets hungry and eats her:

2013-04-21 - Major California fire might only be start of 'epic' fire season:

Note: Yep...

2013-04-20 - Multiple animals found drained of blood in Argentina, some without internal organs, some without bones:

Note: This has nothing to do with hydrogen sulfide or methane, just found it interesting, and creepy...

2013-04-19 - Massive hailstorm destroys 200 homes, damages 11,000 more, in Hunan Province (China):

Quote: "According to Hunan's Provincial Department of Civil Affairs, the hailstorms have affected 105,000 residents and forced the evacuation of more than 9,400 people. Nearly 200 houses collapsed and 11,000 houses were damaged to varying degrees. The storms have also destroyed about 3,900 hectares of crops."

Note: A proposed explanation for these freak hailstorms is in the full hypothesis...

2013-04-18 - Massive hot water geyser erupts in parking lot in Smolensk (Russia):

2013-04-16 - Little girl's heart stops at home in Jersey City (New Jersey), firefighters rush her to hospital, heart starts beating:

Note: Could be some hydrogen sulfide got in that home, stopped her heart. Then when they took her OUT of the home, she regained her pulse. Jersey City is surrounded by bodies of water and is near the East Coast too...

2013-04-15 - Fire crews in Portland (Oregon) training to handle mass casualty events:

2013-04-15 - Cal Fire predicts hazardous fire season:

2013-04-15 - Toxic blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) infests Lake Forsyth near coastal Christchurch (New Zealand):

2013-04-13 - One person killed, 5 sickened, by 'mystery disease' outside Hamburg (Germany):

Quote: "All are suffering from flu-like symptoms but the doctors do not know what disease is affecting them."

Note: 'Flu-like' symptoms can be caused by hydrogen sulfide. These folks in Hamburg also had lung problems - e.g. pneumonia. Hydrogen sulfide can cause chemical damage to lungs too, even foaming at the mouth in some cases, though that particular symptom wasn't present here.

Quote: "...the 2 policemen did not work in the same agency, were not on duty together, do not live in the same place. There is no visible connection, but naturally we are working together to try to find out what has happened."

Quote: "Despite the efforts of the specialists involved we have not been able to identify a pathogen."

Note: No VISIBLE connection. They are overlooking the obvious: the atmosphere itself, which is filling up with hydrogen sulfide which can cause all of those symptoms. That's probably why they have been unable to identify a pathogen: there may BE no pathogen, but rather a gas, and they AREN'T looking for THAT...

2013-04-13 - Two-headed pig born in Jiujiang (China):

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is eating away our ozone layer. This makes the UV from the Sun more fierce and makes the Sun look whiter, not as yellow as it once looked, and UV damages DNA and RNA, so the consequence is a rising number of genetic defects like polycephaly (two-headedness), albinism and so on. If you were to find every incident of polycephaly and albinism in the last 10 years I am absolutely certain that you would see a rise in such events with each year that passes. Eventually the UV radiation to which the surface of the Earth is exposed will ultimately be lethal. We'll probably be dead from fires, explosions and poison gas by then - at least anyone living on the surface of the Earth -  so there's probably not much point in worrying about the UV. But it's still interesting to see the mutation incidents as DNA and RNA are damaged and fragmented...

2013-04-13 - Woman begins having seizures every 15 minutes on boat in the Gulf of Mexico off Key West (Florida):

Quote: "Watch-standers said they received a report at 4:18 p.m. from the motor vessel, Pleiades, of a woman aboard experiencing seizures every 15 minutes."

Note: Lots of mysterious deaths along Florida's Gulf Coast recently too. Hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic and can damage the brain, which can result in seizures. This area is downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now. This woman may have sustained long-term damage to her brain and possibly other organs as well, as hydrogen sulfide is a broad-spectrum poison which can affect all systems of the body. This area is also not far from the original face-eater, who went from normal church-going guy to ravening cannibal incapable of speech after walking across a causeway over water on the coast in Florida. That's another possible effect of hydrogen sulfide's neurotoxicity: brain damage resulting in insane savagery. And the fact that he couldn't speak was a clue that the speech center of his brain had been damaged as he walked across that causeway...

2013-04-11 - Charred corpse found in burned-out car in burned garage at vacant home in Orlando (Florida):

Note: Blamed on homicide, so I put it here, just to have a record of the event...

2013-04-10 - Man, 55, loses consciousness on tanker ship in Delaware Bay off Slaughter Beach (Delaware), medevac'd out:

2013-04-08 - US Navy grounds Blue Angels for 2013:

2013-04-08 - Pilot reported smoke in cockpit and engine failure before crash in March in Winston-Salem (North Carolina):

Note: He and his wife were both killed in the crash...

2013-04-07 - Woman, 30, goes into cardiac arrest during half-marathon in coastal San Francisco (California):

2013-04-04 - Seven-story building collapses in coastal Mumbai (India), 48 killed:

2013-04-03 - Strong 'gas-like' odor smelled in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes (Louisiana), many sickened:

Quote: "A fire chief in Jefferson Parish tells FOX 8 that the Jefferson Parish Fire Department has not been able to locate a source of the smell and is unsure if the smell originated in Jefferson Parish."

Note: Some are blaming this event on a 100-pound hydrogen sulfide release from an Exxon refinery. I wouldn't be so sure of that. This area is right on the Gulf Coast, near the horrible dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now. 'Accidental industrial releases' may simply end up being the cover story du jour as incidents like this increase in frequency and effect around the world. That isn't gonna fly once significant numbers of people start dropping dead though. Then we'll be needing that 'mass fatality' legislation Congress is working on, to make sure peoples' religious beliefs are taken into consideration after they're dead as regards burial and so on...

2013-04-03 - Gas - presumably methane - found beneath two homes near the big sinkhole in Bayou Corne (Louisiana):

2013-04-03 - Massive seafloor craters found off New Zealand, may be from humongous undersea methane gas releases:

Quote: "Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and the escape of big volumes would have significant implications for climate change and ocean acidification..."

Note: Might also have significant implications as regards human civilization exploding and burning too...
