Event Update For 2014-08-14

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.

2014-08-14 - Massive amounts of methane now erupting from the East Siberian Sea:

Quote: "A catastrophe of unimaginable proportions is unfolding in the Arctic Ocean. Huge quantities of methane are erupting from the seafloor of the East Siberian Sea and entering the atmosphere over the Arctic Ocean."

Quote: "Methane eruptions from the Arctic Ocean's seafloor helped push up mean global methane levels to readings as high as 1832 ppb on August 12, 2014."

Note: 'Survivable' levels max out at 1750 parts per billion, so we've moved well past that point. It is as I have said all along: what is occurring - both methane and hydrogen sulfide emissions, since the two gases go together - will soon render the surface of the Earth uninhabitable. How any particular person will die is unknowable, but there are many possibilities: poisoning; suffocation; fire; explosion(s); traffic accidents as more people have seizures or lose consciousness or die while driving; starvation as the biosphere dies off; cancer from increasing UV levels and from nuclear plant leaks as nuclear plants are destroyed; disease outbreaks; human-on-human violence as neurological damage permeates the human population and drives people insane; animal attacks as animals go insane or get hungry.

The article talks about the possibility of geoengineering our way out of this extinction event. That won't work, though it might buy us a little more time to work on Plan B options. The problem is too large and the momentum behind the planetary-scale forces in play is far too overpowering for anything puny humanity can muster as a counterforce. Geoengineering probably has some merit as a time-buying tactic, but that is all, and it won't buy us much time.

So, it's Plan B or death. Those are the options. In the meantime, while people sleep on, mired in this distracting Matrix-like existence, the problems will continue to intensify, the body counts will continue growing, and waves of death will continue crashing onto the shores of human existence...

2014-08-14 - Garage explodes and burns at 11:20 PM at home in Orange (California), 1 killed:

2014-08-14 - Home explodes in Holcombe (Wisconsin), nobody there:

Quote: "Where the gas leak came from is under investigation."

Note: Gas leak - if there even IS one - may very well have begun AFTER the explosion. Numerous homes without any gas service at all have exploded, so ALL homes are exploding, regardless of whether they have gas service or not. It is easier for them to blame a gas leak for explosions in homes where there is gas service though, of course. They aren't checking methane or hydrogen sulfide levels in the air or in the ground or adsorbed onto materials so obviously they will never know how large of a factor that may be playing, but then nobody's ever accused fire investigators these days of being competent or observant...

Note: They SAY arsonists, yet no motive, no surveillance footage, no witnesses saw anybody, no nothin', so ASSUMED arsonists would be more accurate. Competent fire investigators don't start with assumptions, so obviously they don't have competent fire investigators there. These cars probably spontaneously ignited as a cloud of hydrogen sulfide mixed with methane blew though. A man burned to death on the M60 near Stockport recently when his van burst into flame, mentioned in the 2014-06-17 update. Parked cars going up in flames (especially in the wee hours), vehicles igniting and burning people to death, things are happening pretty much as expected, but things will get much worse...

2014-08-14 - Man, 33, found dead on river trail, 'accidental asphyxiation', in the Town of Port Edwards (Wisconsin):

Note: Sounds like he may have gotten a whiff of hydrogen sulfide, collapsed unconscious and landed in a position where he suffocated. One should take all 'asphyxiation' stories with a grain of salt these days because hydrogen sulfide is a 'strangling gas' and can kill via asphyxiation, and hydrogen sulfide has now been detected and smelled in areas all over the world, so it is clearly contaminating our environment, along with methane. The Robin Williams death was very similar to this story - dead of asphyxiation right near the ocean, like this man, dead of asphyxiation right next to a river. You could die of asphyxiation yourself at any time now, though it's more likely to happen in the wee hours or when in, near or downwind of low-lying areas, like, say, oceans or rivers...
