Event Update For 2013-06-13



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.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57589137/dozens-hurt-in-explosion-fire-at-louisiana-chemical-plant/
 
Quote: "A ground-rattling explosion at a chemical plant in Louisiana ignited a blaze that killed at least one person and injured dozens of others. Louisiana's health department says 73 people were treated at hospitals for injuries ranging from minor to critical following the Thursday morning explosion."
 
Note: From the full hypothesis: "...chemical plants of all types will burn and/or explode, including biofuels plants, fertilizer plants, specialty chemical plants, petroleum-related facilities and more." The huge explosion in West (Texas) in April was at a fertilizer plant, which is simply a type of chemical plant. Geismar is located right on the banks of the Mississippi River...

Quote: "The items inside the warehouse, including wooden doors and moldings, helped fuel the fire, Keller said. Because of its intensity, dispatchers sent a second alarm out for additional firefighting teams to respond to the blaze..."

Note: All flammable absorbent materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting, including wood, paper, cardboard, mulch, dried brush, hay, straw, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool, etc.

2013-06-13 - Passenger bus explodes into flame in the wee hours on I-12 near Hammond (Louisiana):
http://www.khou.com/news/local/Florida-mother-daughter-stranded-in-Houston-211505481.html

Quote: "The bus caught on fire on I-12 near Hammond, Louisiana in the wee hours of the morning. 'We woke up to a big loud boom and then about 30 seconds later another boom,' Holly added, 'but it wasn't quite as loud.' Moments after the bus stopped, Samantha Koch said she looked out the window and saw fire."

Note: The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane floating in the atmosphere above closer to the ground, making explosions, fires and hydrogen sulfide poisoning events more common during those hours...

When they HAVE evidence, they generally DO mention it, like a witness saw someone running off, or a gas can was found nearby, whatever...

He said: 'There were taxi drivers and other people sitting and eating at the time. We heard the two loud explosions and people went to check it out.' What they saw was a large amount of smoke billowing from the fourth storey of the neighbouring multi-storey carpark. The smoke came from a car on fire on that storey."

http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/man-burned-as-bike-garage-catches-fire-20130613-2o5ex.html

Quote: "A Metropolitan Fire Brigade spokeswoman said a 44-year-old man had fallen in a small shed at the rear of the property but awoke to find the shack involved in fire."

Note: Hmmm, did he get knocked unconscious by hydrogen sulfide, which then found some electrified copper and started a fire? They say he AWOKE, so he had lost consciousness for sure, then regained consciousness to find the place on fire. This is probably why people are being found dead in burned-out cars: hydrogen sulfide is not only extremely flammable and reactive with electrified copper like battery cables and other wiring in vehicles, it is also deadly, and can knock you unconscious or dead with one breath. So a cloud blows over someone in a car, they pass out, the car ignites, and the people in the car burn to death, if they're not already dead. There was that story around New Years, where an engaged couple burned to death in their car on the way home, in McFarland (Wisconsin), near Madison, as mentioned in the 2013-01-01 update. They didn't even try to get out of the car. That's because they were probably unconscious at the time, so they just sat there and burned to death...

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper. This city is on Florida's Gulf Coast, the first part of Florida to get hit by any hydrogen sulfide coming from the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico. There have been many mysterious deaths in this area as well, which isn't at all surprising since hydrogen sulfide is as deadly as it is flammable...

http://www.khsltv.com/content/localnews/story/Multiple-Bodies-Found-in-Burning-Car/fh9vogYJKE6s-D_ThlbQpg.cspx

Quote: "Authorities say someone in the area heard a 'pop' and when Sheriff's Deputies went to go check on it, they found the car in flames."

Note: There's that popping sound again, heard right before many fires in the last year. That's probably the sound of a gas plume - hydrogen sulfide or methane or both - igniting, a small explosion. When these explosions are a little larger, they sound like fireworks or gunfire and may be mistaken for either. When they're really large then people have been hearing thunderous boom sounds, sometimes accompanied by a 'flash of light', and these large explosions can shake homes - or even damage them - from miles away...

Note: He may have gotten a whiff of hydrogen sulfide blowing by, which killed him and he toppled off his mower, which kept going a little bit. His house is, as the street name indicates, right next to a river, a low-lying area where heavier-than-air hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate when the wind isn't blowing it on and from where it will blow when the wind picks up. I'd bet that if the authorities could tell exactly when he flopped over dead, and they could tell what the wind was doing at that moment, they'd find that it was blowing lightly off that river toward that man's property...

http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=VI-20130614-39600-SAU

Quote: "The accident was caused by a tyre burst..."

Note: Tires and brake pads are absorbing hydrogen sulfide. Then when brakes are applied, an abnormal amount of heat is generated, because hydrogen sulfide burns very hot. Then bad things can happen: tires explode or ignite, brakes burn out or ignite, fluid lines rupture, the entire vehicle goes up in flames, or all of the above. This affects massive vehicles the most, but no vehicle is immune. Buses have been overturning, running out of control, plunging off cliffs, crashing into gorges and ravines, veering across lanes and hitting other vehicles, etc.

Quote: "Malone said police are investigating what may have caused the truck driver to lose control, and he said he could not confirm a witness' account to New Lenox Patch that it appeared that one of the semi's tires may have blown out."

Note: Tire blowout would not surprise me one bit, due to the problem with tires and brake pads absorbing hot-burning hydrogen sulfide...

  1. Seems like a substantial uptick in events over there - there's been another explosion in Louisiana -

    15 miles from La. sinkhole, 2nd plant explodes:
    http://www.examiner.com/article/15-miles-from-la-sinkhole-2nd-plant-explodes?cid=rss

    One dead, several hurt in second Louisiana plant blast:
    http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/15/us-usa-explosion-louisiana-idUSBRE95E02N20130615

    In this case they are blaming an "overpressurized container."

    As you have been watching events unfold over time, have you had any thoughts about when we might hit a kind of tipping point? Months, years or decades?
    I'm thinking in terms of years myself, but that may be wishful thinking!




    Here's a few reports I don't think you've listed yet:

    Not sure if this one is relevant, they seem to think it was elecrical burns although they can't say how it happened:

    "The location and type of the power supply where the teenager was injured has not been identified by police."

    1. Thanks much, as always!

      'Tipping point' - kind of a vague term there, but I kinda know what you mean by it anyway. Things really started to ratchet up in 2010, and the 'catastrophe curve' seems to have been steepening since then, and that looks like it will continue. So extrapolate out a bit and in 3-5 years things look likely to be just horrifying almost beyond imagining, with homes and businesses and vehicles exploding and burning everywhere, fires raging all over the planet, people dropping dead constantly and corpses everywhere, and weather going even more berzerk than it already is.

      Forget about decades, or even one decade. Whoever isn't in a protected habitat by 2020 will probably be staring death in the face every day until they're gone, and I imagine a whole lot of people will be dead before we even get to 2020.

      Sorry to be so bleak, just callin' it as I see it!

  2. I think most people have a glamorous vision of a post-apocalyptic world, action packed and exciting like in the movies. The reality is more likely to be pretty damn grim.
    Can't blame them though, I was kinda looking forward to driving around in a supercharged V-8 Interceptor! Ah well.

    Another house exploded today as well, I haven't been keeping a tally but I think this is the 5th or 6th this year:

      I hear ya! And I was practicing to lurk quietly amidst rocks then spring up suddenly and throw razor-sharp finger-chopping boomerangs at gas-starved biker thugs then scuttle away. We woulda made a good team!
