Event Update For 2014-06-27

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.

2014-06-27 - Underground electrical fire hits Chico (California), power outages ensue:

Quote: "At about 3:50 p.m., the Chico Fire Department responded to the 300 block of Broadway after people reported seeing smoke and sparks coming from storm drains, according to the Chico Fire Department. Firefighters also noticed smoke and asked the Chico Police Department to close part of the road, according to Chico fire. Several manhole lids on the streets had also popped up. As a precaution, Chico fire evacuated people in the area, while others were asked to shelter in place."

Quote: "It's the second time this week there's been an underground problem on the same street ... The last time is was in a different vault, and was blamed on a failed cable that caught fire."

Quote: "Investigators have not determined what caused the methane buildup to ignite."

Note: That's where hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with electrified copper or rusty iron/steel can come into play. A little dash of hydrogen sulfide and some methane, near some electrified copper or rusty iron/steel, and the hydrogen sulfide can serve as the igniter while the methane (or natural gas, or butane, or any flammable vapor) serves as the primary 'fuel load' for the fire and/or explosion. They had some trucks in there, which means there was both rust AND electrified copper present...

  1. Good grief. Things are getting worse and worse every day. There's no let-up, no respite, and both the severity and the area of these incidents is expanding.

    The way it's looking, soon there will be no fish - they can't live in the toxic, polluted, overheated and over acidified ocean we've produced. We're on the list to go extinct too and we'll see and chronicle our demise even though no one will be around to "learn from" our mistakes.

    Thanks for another great update Jonny.
