Event Update For 2014-07-07





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.

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Metal-related businesses will be hit hard, including salvage yards and metal recycling centers."

Quote: "Police and Shackleton's daughter Katie said the fire in the three-story building at 2119 Long Beach Blvd. started in some pallets behind the law office."

Note: Pallets, outdoors, right on the coast. Too bad they didn't know about the problem we're facing, because then they wouldn't have had those pallets there, and they'd still have an office building to work at. The construction industry might be hiring though - there's a lot of burned-up buildings to replace these days!

Note: A tire, 12 feet tall, burst into flame on one of these trucks at a business last year in Hibbing (Minnesota), mentioned in the 2013-05-28 update. I have no idea what one of these gigantic beasts costs, but it must be a bundle, and it looks like the one here in Eveleth was completely destroyed. This is big-time infrastructure equipment going up in flames here...

2014-07-07 - Air-conditioner bursts into flame, fire spreads, two businesses damaged, in Stroudsburg (Pennsylvania):
http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140707/NEWS/407070316/-1/rss01

Quote: "Seip said it was the first time he had ever heard of that type of air conditioner causing a fire. He said fire marshals couldn't pinpoint how the appliance caused the fire."

Note: Air-conditioners are vulnerable to the atmospheric contamination problem because A) they use electrified copper; and B) they move the atmosphere around. As time goes on, more air-conditioners will be igniting and causing fires like this one. It's already happening, just not on a huge scale...yet. Air-conditioned buses are the ones that have mainly been burning in India and killing people too, same problem. Normally in the summer the demand for those buses goes up, but this year, for the first time, demand actually went DOWN, because of all the people who have died on those buses in the last year or so...

2014-07-07 - Man found dead at school, HazMat event, 13 others treated, in coastal Plymouth (Massachusetts):
http://plymouth.wickedlocal.com/article/20140707/NEWS/140707782

Quote: "According to school officials, Flattery reported for work at 7 a.m. and was found unresponsive shortly after 8 a.m. by a secretary at the school. The building was evacuated and three local firefighters, three police officers, two state troopers, two paramedics and one school employee were transported to Beth Israel Deaconess-Plymouth for evaluation, with symptoms of possible chemical exposure."

Note: Plymouth is about 30 miles from Quincy (Massachusetts), where a persistent 'rotten egg' odor was blowing in off the ocean and a mysterious plane was buzzing the city last year, mentioned in the 2013-05-09 update and the 2013-05-10 update, respectively. That was hydrogen sulfide and that plane may have been monitoring the concentration in the air, or perhaps it was being used as a spotter to find peoples' corpses quickly and help keep things quiet, or both...

Most of these stories get little press but when it's a bus driver people tend to notice because of the potential for high casualty counts...

Quote: "Klunder said the energy produced by the railgun is roughly equivalent to what it would take to fire a freight train through a wall at 100 mph. Not just the train’s engine -- the whole train. 'Some people call it super gun. I’m OK with that,' said Klunder, who has overseen some of the $250 million in development work performed on the new system."

  1. This report is amazing Jonny! Lots of electrical infrastructure disruptions, fires of all kinds, buildings and bridges collapsing, people keeling over, and the other "usual" occurrences. Then we move into the BIG stuff, like that enormous mine truck going up in flames! I saw one of these behemoths coming off the assembly line when I was a kid - the truck was equipped with an attached 10' ladder just to get into the cab!

    Holy slapacowa - it's gettin' crazy!

    Here's an article calling the end of fish everywhere in the world:

    http://www.dailyimpact.net/2014/07/07/fishin-gone-all-over-the-world/#more-2278

    Fishin’ Gone. All Over the World.

    The headline in the Washington Post on June 3: “The End of Fish.” Not even the usual weasel question mark at the end to avoid the declarative statement. In mid-June the Global Ocean Commission stated its conclusion that the world’s oceans are on the brink of collapse, offering a Pollyanna-ish eight-point plan for their complete recovery (Step One: Every country in the United Nations agrees to stop plundering the oceans for profit and start working for their recovery. Just give us a call when you’ve done that, and we’ll move on to Step Two.) In late June, Quartz detailed the $27 billion in subsidies from the world’s richest countries to the largest, nost destructive fleets of deep-ocean trawlers, without which they could not sail. The headline on the July 11 cover story in Newsweek: “The Disaster We’ve Wrought on the World’s Oceans May Be Irrevocable.”

    Earlier, in May, Michael Snyder writing for the American Dream blog tabulated a list of fresh- and salt-water fish kills around the world in a single month this spring that will set your hair on fire.

    It is important to realize that the culprit here is not climate change, although it is making a contribution to the problem. If there were no such thing as climate change, the world’s fish would still be on Death Row, put there by the same endearing qualities and activities that have brought us climate change: boundless greed; massive pollution of air, water and soil; heedless exploitation of natural resources; and political paralysis brought on by injections of currency.

    Specifically, three things are wiping out the fish, and there is no reasonable expectation that any of them will abate anytime soon.

    1. Ocean Acidification. [descriptive paragraph]

    2. Algae Blooms. [descriptive paragraph]

    3. Overfishing. [descriptive paragraph]

    The bad news is that the fish are dying so fast that any serious effort to help them would have to have started years ago. The good news: in just a few more years, there will no longer be a problem. Because as the narrator on Evening Shade intoned years ago: “Where there is no solution, there is no problem.”

    Thanks again.

    1. Yeah, wild 'n crazy day here! Realistically, looks like fish have had it. No 'save the fish' campaign is gonna save the fish. In fact, we might wanna start a 'save the human race' campaign and leave the fish to fend for themselves. They might just outlast us!

    Gas-Charged Earthquakes Linked to Mysterious Louisiana Sinkhole

    Surges of gas-charged fluid may have explosively generated the earthquakes preceding a giant sinkhole in Louisiana, researchers say. [check it out]

    and an example of 'vapor wave' music (subgenre of 'chill' I think):

    1. Huh, if that's the case with the quakes then I wonder if we'll see more sinkholes just like that one. Can't see why not - there's nothing terribly special about the area that one is in at Bayou Corne.

      Haha, I searched YouTube for 'vapor wave' and the song/video that came up first was this one:

      https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xzmfc3_against-the-waves-something-more-official-music-video_music

      LMAO, chill is not the right adjective for that song! I did find some actual vapor wave songs, which were a lot less insanely frantic.
