Event Update For 2014-07-21





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.thehindu.com/news/cities/Delhi/three-friends-found-dead-inside-car-in-rk-puram/article6240612.ece

Quote: "The police says the trio were between 25 and 35 years old and their bodies were discovered, frothing at the mouth, at 11 pm on Monday night in a car whose windows were rolled down."

Note: This is by no means the first time multiple people have mysteriously died while foaming at the mouth. It's not even the first time multiple people have mysteriously died foaming at the mouth in a car. Hydrogen sulfide poisoning can cause foaming from the mouth, convulsions, seizures, unconsciousness, death. As the atmospheric contamination intensifies over time, increasing numbers of people will be dying just like these three men, though not necessarily in a vehicle, but also on streets, in schools, at work, at home, anywhere.

A couple, 23 and 19, were found dead in bed at home in Searcy (Arkansas), one of them foaming at the mouth, mentioned in the 2012-08-27 update. A college student died foaming from the mouth in a hostel room in Varanasi (India), mentioned in the 2014-05-15 update. A woman was found dead, foaming from the mouth, near a cemetery in coastal Sungai Putat (Malaysia), mentioned in the 2014-04-21 update. Three students collapsed unconscious and foamed at the mouth outside Riverside High School in El Paso (Texas), just downwind of the Rio Grande, mentioned in the 2013-06-04 update. A man was found dead foaming at the mouth in a building in coastal Spanish Town on the island of Jamaica, as mentioned in the 2013-12-17 update. An inmate, 48, was found dead and foaming at the mouth at 12:45 AM in his cell in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), mentioned in the 2014-04-16 update. A boy, 10, was found dead, foaming at the mouth, near a building in Soweto (South Africa), mentioned in the 2014-03-26 update. A man, 34, was found dead and foaming at the mouth in a drainage tunnel in Flagstaff (Arizona), mentioned in the 2014-02-05 update. A family of five were found dead at home, foaming from the mouth, in coastal Karachi (Pakistan), mentioned in the 2013-12-09 update.

2014-07-21 - Wood crates burst into flame just before midnight at business in Vernon (Canada):
http://globalnews.ca/news/1465864/another-suspicious-fire-in-vernon-2/

Note: They've had a lot of fires here, vehicles, pallets, trash, all the same stuff that's been burning all over the planet. They just haven't noticed that it's not just Vernon having this problem, and being ignorant of the planetary nature of the problem and its specifics, they're blaming an arsonist, despite the fact that there's no evidence, no surveillance footage, no witnesses, and no motive. These crates are probably made of wood held together with steel nails or screws. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel, so a spark pops near a nail, lands on some wood, and you have a fire, so this fire was essentially the same as all the various pallet fires that have been occurring. One would think they'd wake up to the problem before the entire city is destroyed, but maybe not. Time will tell...

  1. Hey Jonny, nice coverage of the Washington state fires - I posted them (with a reference to here) over on NBL. Unbelievable how fast our habitat is deteriorating isn't it? From all the fires to the species die-offs (including our own) to the myriad factors affecting our (short) future - climate change, diseases, natural catastrophes and of course our own foolishness along with many others.

    As we see above, multiple bodies are piling up in the same places; similar incidents of explosions and fires are rampant, but the authorities are (supposedly) ignorant of connecting the MOST OBVIOUS dots - the atmosphere and explosive gases finding an ignition source!

    Here's another pit-bull story that isn't horrid:

    Trains in the news more these days . . .

    Those creek fires in Montana - what makes H2S or methane (or the combination) ignite, lightening? I remember another story you found concerning the spontaneous ignition of a watery area like a marsh or bog - but I can't wrap my feeble mind around how, not to mention THAT it is happening.

  2. Lightning would be a suspect as an ignition source, or static electricity. Rusty iron though - just how pervasive IS rusty iron/steel in our environment these days? Leftover nails and railroad spikes, pieces of fences from the 1800s, rusty pipes, could be a lot of that kind of stuff laying around out there, or embedded in the ground. I bet that's the ignition source in a lot of cases.

    But there is such a thing as auto ignition too, if the air mix gets volatile enough, where the air itself spontaneously ignites, no ignition source necessary at all. That'd have to be a high concentration of methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air though, so I doubt we're seeing too much of that, at least not yet.

    I have been noticing a lot of fires getting started by lightning. That's one of the scenarios mentioned in some discussions about the Clathrate Gun Hypothesis, where methane in the air and methane-infused moisture (e.g. rain) is blown around with storms, ignited by the lightning, causing 'walls of fire' and massive explosions as storms blow through. I definitely don't think we're seeing that to THAT degree, not yet, but we surely might as things progress.

    Yeah, there are good pit bulls out there! But all the same, I think if I outlive my cats, I'm going with gerbils. Haha, a gerbil goes crazy and gets violent, I think I've got a good shot at surviving that!

    1. A scientist on the Oden has blogged about the seabed methane emissions saturating the water column and entering the atmosphere - terming it a "megaflare." Ulf Hedman, Science Coordinator, Swedish Polar Research Secretariat comments:

      "We see the bubbles on video from the camera mounted on the CTD or the Multicorer. All analysis tells the signs. We are in a Mega flare. We see it in the water column we read it above the surface an we follow it up high into the sky with radars and lasers. We see it mixed in the air and carried away with the winds."

      Yikes, 'mega flare' of methane into the atmosphere. Somehow that just doesn't sound good at all. They talk about studying stuff over the next 5-8 years. I hope they're still alive in 8 years. I hope anyone is still alive in 8 years.

      Rapid and dramatic escalation of methane releases is in progress. Everything you see happening in the Arctic will be happening in all the other methane hydrate deposits that have already begun to melt, and there will be more such deposits 'coming online' as time marches on too.

      Thanks for the link!
