Event Update For 2014-03-13

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.

2014-03-13 - John Deere dealership destroyed by massive blaze and explosions, in Higgsinville (Missouri), nobody there:
Quote: "Multiple agencies assisted Higgsinville firefighters in battling a massive blaze at a John Deere dealership. KCTV5 viewers reported the blaze just before 10 p.m. Thursday. One viewer reported hearing explosions."
Quote: "Authorities said the building is a total loss, including the millions of dollars of equipment inside."
Note: Basically like the various parking lot fires, except it was tractors and the parking lot was indoors this time. This is yet another way our food supply is being attacked. Lose enough tractors and crops don't get planted, even if they would grow. Lose enough tractor trailers and then even if crops get harvested, there'll be problems distributing the food. And even if the food makes it all that way, your own vehicle might still burst into flame on the way to or from the store...

  1. Jonny:

    Holy Slappa Cow-a! Philly airport again, Lampeter Twp again, and various accidents, explosions and fires again in the PA area. It just doesn't stop! This lends more credence to your assertion that the methane clathrates along the eastern seaboard are bubbling out.

    Good call on the Chinese tunnel explosion and aftermath!

    Once again, we see the fragility of the electrical grid in all this - from vehicles veering off-course, trees bringing down lines, exploding transformers and other problems. Just let's us know we're on borrowed time with respect to the nuke plants that rely on steady electrical power (among other factors) to continue operating "safely" (which is bullshit, since we still can't figure out a safe way to rid ourselves of the toxic waste they create. Civilization is on shaky ground.

    Another super post!


  2. Then we have this:

    The Mystery of the Missing Methane (Op-Ed)

    A new landmark study in the journal Science found that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) inventory of greenhouse gases is undercounting total U.S. methane emissions by roughly 50 percent. Based on atmospheric sampling, the study estimates that this missing methane amounts to 14 terra grams (Tg) of methane; that's equal to 6.4 billion pounds, or as much as the weight of 1.4 million new Ford F150 pickup trucks.

    In the years immediately after it's released, methane is a potent greenhouse gas. It causes 86 times as much global warming over a 20-year period as carbon dioxide, the single largest contributor to climate change. According to our analysis at Energy Innovation, the methane missing from the EPA's inventory — in terms of the contribution to global warming over a 20-year time period — would be equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of 252 coal power plants.

    At the same time that the scientific community is finding evidence that methane is being undercounted, the newly released draft version of the U.S. EPA's national greenhouse-gas emission inventory presents data showing that methane emissions from natural gas are falling. The new draft inventory releases 2012 data for the first time, and claims that emissions from methane fell by roughly 2 percent compared to 2011. The new draft inventory also revised downward estimates for past years because of new information about reduced emission well completions (the process that gets natural gas to start flowing) and other voluntary mitigation steps received from companies.

    This treatment of methane emissions from natural gas is difficult to reconcile with the new Science study by Adam Brandt of Stanford University and his colleagues, the most comprehensive analysis of both "top-down" and "bottom-up" methane-emission studies ever.

    Top down studies take air samples from aircraft or towers. These types of studies offer an accurate measurement of overall methane emissions, but they are not as well suited to attributing emissions to particular sources compared to bottom-up methods, which measure emissions directly at the source. The estimates of missing methane are based on direct sampling of the atmosphere, whereas the EPA inventory involves many assumptions and depends upon accurate self-reporting of voluntary emission reduction efforts by the extraction companies.

    [read the rest]


    1. So when they measure top-down they get X amount of methane. When they measure 'at the source' it comes up a much smaller amount of methane. So they're saying that the 'at the source' emissions are being undercounted. That could be, assuming that the gas springs off Israel, the thousands of kilometer-wide seeps in the Arctic, the deposit dissociating off the US East Coast, the methane coming from rivers in Australia, the methane in peoples' tapwater in various areas around the country, the methane in the ground in upstate New York, the methane in the ground in Pennsylvania and California - if all of that methane equals NOTHING then yes, there's probably a HUGE honking discrepancy. If all of those methane releases DO count for something - which they do - then the discrepancy may not be all that much due to undercounting the 'at the source' emissions, but rather due to NOT counting all of those natural (and uncontrolled) emissions.

    2. I'm sure it's actually both though. Businesses are going to tend to undercount. But even so, they can't possibly know how much methane is spewing into the air all over the planet now, so the data is corrupt right from the start, and you can't really trust it, other than that a lot of methane is accumulating in the air. I certainly do believe that much, but otherwise, looks like we have greedy bastards telling us one thing and oblivious scientists telling us the opposite - and they're both ignoring the elephant in the room.
