Event Update For 2014-07-10

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.

2014-07-10 - Underground electrical explosion and fire hits Frederick (Maryland):

Quote: "An underground transformer at West 4th and North Market streets exploded and caught fire, according to Frederick Police Lt. Dennis Dudley. Patrick to 7th streets are without power, Dudley said."

2014-07-10 - Electrical substation damaged by explosion and fire in Leicester (Britain):

Note: An electrical substation was just destroyed by an explosion and fire at 2 AM in Leicester too, mentioned in the 2014-06-30 update...

2014-07-10 - Transformer bursts into flame on pole at Hilltop Garden Centre in Ramsden (Britain):

Note: More underground electrical fires, more electrical infrastructure burning. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper. It's also a heavier-than-air gas so it will tend to seek out low-lying areas like underground stuff. As a consequence there has been a rising number of underground electrical explosions and fires, utility poles and transformers bursting into flame, etc. This same problem is also causing vehicles to spontaneously ignite, and they need not be running, which is resulting in numerous homes going up in flames and sometimes killing people. It's increasingly dangerous to park a vehicle near anything you don't want to see on fire...

It boasts that the system is the first of its kind in an airport anywhere in South America and the Caribbean. The 'breathing tax' which came into force on July 1 and must be paid by all domestic and international passengers to airlines at check in, has generated bemusement in Venezuela, with many taking to Twitter to criticize the measure."


  1. Connecting the imaginary dots on a map where these JJFH incidents occur, it's possible to "see" where the H2S is wafting and in what concentrations (enough to blow up a building or light an acre on fire as compared to a single kid walking through the woods keeling over ).


    1. I think adsorption is the problem. That's what gases do, they cling to the surfaces of stuff, that's adsorption. So some hydrogen sulfide (or methane, or both) blows through at 3 AM or whatever, and smears a thin layer of molecules onto materials. And more the next day and more the next. Eventually fires start breaking out, because it's so flammable.

      This may also be one way it poisons people - as they touch stuff that's been adsorbing hydrogen sulfide over time. Lot of people have been found dead in or near trash cans, at landfills, recycling centers, all of which are spontaneously igniting. So these people are probably scavenging or whatever, and they get poisoned by skin contact. But it could be on/in anything now, like fabric in cars if you leave your windows down, insulation (lots of fibers means lots of surface area), leaves, mulch, foliage, and it may be dissolved into water too, in all its forms: humidity, fog, mist, rain, snow.

      I thought about mapping out just the events in my own area and decided it'd probably just scare the crap out of me if I did, so I didn't. Heh.

  2. I imagine sitting 1/3 way up one of my really tall trees (> 100') and viewing my entire property stacked with wrecked cars. Yeah, that'd be a big fire, right there.

    Thanks for the explanation above.

    Driftwood (leaves, sticks, any kind of wood) spontaneously going up in flames? Dude, we're in so much trouble . . .

    Ya know, you'd think the "authorities" would clear big structures that have already burned a few times and are vacant. Probably costs too much or there's legal crap involved that prevents them from doing it, while it protects the landowner from liability if he's already bankrupt (esp. if it's a corporation - hell, they get away with everything).

    Keepin' an eye on all that electrical infrastructure being destroyed every day. Sooner or later it's not going to be replaced.

    Thanks Jonny.


    1. In Venice (Illinois), the fire department apparently is burning down vacant structures in the middle of the night. I mentioned that story in the 2014-05-23 update. They burned down a vacant house and the lady next door got pissed because the heat damaged HER home. Here's that story:

      Not sure how they're dealing with the legal issues of doing that.
