Event Update For 2014-08-07





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.

2014-08-07 - Massive fish kill hits Veterans Memorial Lake in Great Bend (Kansas):
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=BH-20140809-44852-USA

Quote: "The putrid stench of rotting fish hung heavy over Veterans Memorial Lake Friday morning and buzzards circled overhead. Meanwhile below, an army of Great Bend city employees, armed with nets, rubber gloves and plastic buckets picked their way along the shoreline. This marked the second day in row they'd spent scooping thousands of dead fish or all sizes out of the lake following what officials called a 'massive fish kill.' 'I've never seen anything like it,' said Park Supervisor Scott Keeler. They spent the day Thursday clearing carcasses, but, more bloated remains floated to the surface over night. 'It was like we hadn't done anything at all.'"

Quote: "The California Highway Patrol was getting reports that the van blew a tire, crashed into the center divider and then hit the truck."

Note: Tires and brake pads are absorbing hydrogen sulfide. Then when brakes are applied, an unusual amount of heat is generated, since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot. Then bad things can happen: tires explode or ignite, brakes burn out or ignite, fluid lines rupture, the entire vehicle goes up in flames, or all of the above. This problem hits massive vehicles the worst - like fire trucks, buses, tanker trucks, etc - but no vehicle is immune...

Quote: "The pumper truck and a medic unit had been rushing to the 900 block of Withnell Avenue for a report of a "person down." The pumper truck responds routinely with a medic truck on calls like that. The pumper didn't make it to scene because it was stuck, but the medic unit got there in a hurry and the person was already dead, said Capt. Garon Mosby of the St. Louis Fire Department. Authorities say it appears the person died of natural causes..."

Note: Well, it LOOKED like natural causes anyway, but that doesn't mean it WAS natural causes. Hydrogen sulfide often kills without any sign of injury, just a corpse after someone drops dead. This area is right near the riverfront...
 



2014-08-07 - At least 70 students hospitalized by hydrogen sulfide poisoning in Kollam (India):
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=HZ-20140807-44837-IND

Quote: "At least 70 students were hospitalised after alleged gas leak at the KMML (Kerala Minerals and Metals Limited) factory in Kollam Thursday. Around 70 students from the nearby school and colleges of the factory were admitted in the hospital. Around twenty students from the Chavara Government Girls Higher Secondary School and 30 students from the government college were admitted to the hospital. Two other students from the Kamankulangara school were also admitted. On Wednesday, many residents including 60 students were admitted to the hospital after Hydrogen Sulphide leaked from the factory. The plant has been closed pending further investigation."

Note: I am highly skeptical about this story. Hydrogen sulfide in a metal factory? If it were a septic or sewer facility, maybe. If it were a petroleum facility, that'd be believable, since hydrogen sulfide is what makes gas 'sour' and it is extracted. But I don't know what use hydrogen sulfide would be to a METAL business. I suspect this was a cloud of gas that blew through in the atmosphere and they just decided to blame the nearest factory so they'd have something other than the truth to sell people...

  1. In some kind of sick, twisted thinking, while I was reading today's report I started putting it to various old music - like (in the spirit of On The First Day of Christmas):

    One building burning, two Can-Am Spyders, three classic cars . . .

    (and this one brought to mind an old Elvis song): They call it Trappe, we can't walk out . . .

    Hey Italy, how do you want your Stromboli?

    Wait. A monkey attacked a woman outside of a pizzeria in CA? How'd he get there, drone?

    I'd like to read how the church is going to spin that collapse so that it was God's will . . .

    One of America’s Most Stable Industries Is Slowly Dying

    According to the National Academy of Engineering, the electrification of America was the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th century.

    Over the last 140 years, the US electrical grid has been cobbled together in a piecemeal, haphazard fashion. For example, today the system consists of:
    •3,000 public, private, and co-op utilities
    •1,000 independent power generators
    •three regionally synchronized grids
    •eight reliability councils
    •150 control-area operators
    •thousands of local, state, and federal regulatory institutions

    75% of US power is generated by investor-owned utilities and according to the US Energy Information Administration ( EIA ), as of 2013 the sources of US electricity were: coal (50%), gas (20%), nuclear (17.2%), hydroelectric (10.3%), and non-hydro renewable (1.3%).


    This heavy use of coal represents a major problem with the current US electrical system and is why modern regulatory and environmental pressures threaten America's economic future.

    Tibet tour bus with 40 people falls into valley

    BEIJING (AP) — A tour bus carrying about 40 people fell off a 10-meter (30-foot) cliff in southwest China's mountainous region of Tibet on Saturday, causing some fatalities, the country's official news agency reported.

    Casualty details were not immediately known, but the Xinhua News Agency said bodies and survivors were pulled out of the bus, with the injured rushed to hospitals in the regional capital of Lhasa.

    The bus careened after it crashed in a pileup involving a sports utility vehicle and a pickup truck on a state road in the county of Nyemo in southern Tibet, Xinhua said.

    Photos released by Xinhua showed the bus lying upside down as rescuers worked to pull people out.

    Tourism has been on the rise in the scenic Tibetan Plateau, where mountain roads are often treacherous and can be particularly dangerous in the summer rainy season.

    The road where Saturday's pileup occurred had a massive landslide earlier in the week, covering a 280-meter (yard) stretch of the road in debris, according to China's weather services.

    Terror-filled flight as plane’s engine fails over Atlantic

    Passengers have told how their flight on a Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” plane ended up turning into a nightmare.

    There were 288 travelers on board the Thomson Airways flight from the Dominican Republic to Manchester, UK, when it suffered an engine problem over the Atlantic.

    British holiday-makers Gary Barton and his wife, Caroline, who were traveling with their daughter, said they noticed a change in the engine noise about an hour-and-a-half into the trip. They claim the plane then began to drop.

    “We could see on our screens that our altitude was dropping about 500 feet (152 meters) every minute,” Mrs. Barton told the Manchester Evening News. “The captain said he had to fly lower because he only had one engine. It looked like we were just dropping into the Atlantic.”

    The captain had been forced to shut the engine down, and needed to make an emergency landing.

    The plane then flew for four hours at a low altitude before landing at a remote military airport in the Azores, Portugal.

    NYAAAHHH-AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!
