Event Update For 2014-08-20





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.

2014-08-20 - Passenger plane lands then bursts into flame at airport in Delhi (India), 28 injured:
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=VIV-20140821-44985-IND

Quote: "Emergency alert was sounded at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport on Wednesday evening after an IndiGo flight with 154 people on board caught fire during landing at the airport's Terminal 1. As many as 28 passenger suffered injuries in the fire."

Quote: "Aviation regulator DGCA and the airline have begun probing the incident, as preliminary reports said the smoke was caused by heavy friction on the left brake assembly of the aircraft's landing gear."

Quote: "This is the second incident involving an IndiGo aircraft in the recent past. On March 8, an Indigo plane from Delhi with 182 people on board had caught fire after landing at Kathmandu airport but no one was hurt. Then too, the fire was spotted on the plane's right brake assembly."

Note: I've been warning about this problem for some time. 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. Also see the passenger plane that landed and had its landing gear (nose gear) collapse in coastal New Smyrna Beach (Florida) on this day...
 



2014-08-20 - Home destroyed by explosion in Butler County near Towanda (Kansas), 1 injured:
http://ksffa.wordpress.com/2014/08/20/propane-leak-may-have-caused-butler-co-home-explosion/

Quote: "Undersheriff Tony Wilhite, Butler County, said a 61-year-old man returned to his home after running errands, when he smelled was appeared to be propane. The man went inside his home to make sure there were no appliances with pilot lights turned on. The home exploded while the man was walking outside, Wilhite said."

Note: That may have been hydrogen sulfide, probably mixed with some methane. Methane is odorless, but hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations smells like 'rotten eggs', just like the additives added to propane and natural gas so they have any odor at all. And unlike propane, hydrogen sulfide can ignite in the presence of rusty iron/steel or electrified copper, no flame required, so turning off all the flames in the house, which this man did, would not necessarily prevent an explosion, and indeed, this explosion happened AFTER he'd turned everything off and was exiting the home...

Quote: "Police say the explosion happened as the owner was fueling up the 42-foot boat. A passenger on the boat jumped off and suffered injuries. Police say two docks, and other nearby boats have damage."

Note: Sounds like the work of the Ghostly Match. I mentioned refueling specifically: "Would you siphon gas or refuel your vehicle if there was a lit match right there? Of course not, but you won't SEE the match until it's struck." Another boat just exploded and burned while refueling, at Victoria Island near coastal Lagos (Nigeria), mentioned in the 2014-08-17 update. That boat explosion and fire killed 1 person and injured 9 more. So that's 2 people killed and 9 people injured in just two boat explosions in just three days, both while refueling. Obviously this is a serious and deadly problem and you won't see it coming until it's too late and you're on fire or dead...

Quote: "According to a news release from the Milton Fire Department, a vehicle inside the barn caught fire and sparked the blaze.

Two hay wagons and a pontoon boat outside the barn also were destroyed."

2014-08-20 - In separate incidents, within 4 hours and half a mile apart, dump truck and car burst into flame while parked in Stoughton (Massachusetts):
http://stoughton.wickedlocal.com/article/20140820/NEWS/140829659

Quote: "Two vehicle fires were reported in less than four hours and a half-mile apart, Stoughton Fire Chief Mark Dolloff said."

Quote: "A dump truck fire caught a second vehicle on fire at Riley Brothers Inc., 84 Tosca Dr. at 6 p.m. Monday. Fire crews were back in the area just before 10 p.m. when a silver Nissan Maxima burst into flames at Sam’s Getty service station at 452 Canton St."

Quote: Employees at Riley Brothers said the 2007 Mack dump truck worked fine all day. It was parked in a remote part of the parking lot around 4 p.m. Two hours later, it was completely in flames. Dolloff said the fire spread from the dump truck to another construction vehicle. It was unclear to firefighters where the blaze started because the flames were so heavy. Four hours later, the service station was closed when the call came in for the second fire. The Maxima sat in the lot all day without being worked on."

Quote: "'We’ve notified our fire investigator because it’s kind of strange we had two unexplained vehicle fires,' Dolloff said."

Note: Exactly as I said would be happening, multiple vehicles going up in flames in the same general area in a compressed timeframe. As the atmospheric contamination intensifies this will become increasingly common and in fact it already is...

2014-08-20 - In separate incidents, apartment building and two row homes burn in Lancaster (Pennsylvania):

Quote: "Damage was estimated at $5,000 to 438 S. Prince St., and the damage was mainly to property under an awning, including chairs, a lawnmower and part of a small shed, Longenecker said."

Note: Quote is from the two row homes that got scorched. That fire started before 6:30 AM and started outdoors. I'd place my bets on that lawnmower as the source of this fire. Lawnmowers are basically small specialty vehicles and it's increasingly dangerous to park ANY vehicle, including lawnmowers, next to anything you don't want to see on fire...

Note: Well, seeing as they haven't eliminated accidental causes, like hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rusty iron/steel, then it would be more accurate to call these ASSUMED arsons. Competent fire investigators don't make such assumptions and they rule out accidental causes first...

Note: Say, that's what being poisoned to death by hydrogen sulfide causes: undetermined medical issues. Was his window open? AC running? Had he gone swimming or boating recently? Been outdoors in the wee hours? A college student dropped dead in a bathroom at a university the day prior in coastal Clearwater (Florida), mentioned in the 2014-08-19 update...

2014-08-20 - Hydrogen sulfide emissions from sewage lagoon sickening residents of coastal Lowell Point (Alaska):
http://sewardcitynews.com/2014/08/sewage-lagoon-blamed-for-health-concerns/

Quote: "Ten area residents and business owners of the Lowell Point area, including a few downwind or upwind from the city’s main aerated, passive sewage lagoon, described their symptoms at Monday night’s regular city council meeting: headaches; stinging, swollen, watery eyes; difficulty breathing, coughing and other respiratory ailments; reduced oxygen levels; stomach upset; and even mental confusion—all of which have been mentioned as symptoms of elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide."

Note: That 'mental confusion' is the most disturbing symptom. That's brain damage - hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic - and that may be permanent damage. That doesn't mean that their brains won't 'rewire' around the damage, but that's more likely to happen with younger people. With older people, they may experience neurological deterioration from which they will never recover...

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/usb000s569#summary

Note: This volcano has VEI 6 potential. A VEI 6 eruption, on top of all the other volcanoes that have been erupting, could - and very likely would - cause volcanic winter and widespread crop failure and starvation in the northern hemisphere, as well as significant disruption to plane travel. On the plus side, at least the name is pronounceable, unlike Eyjafjallajokull!

An Equateur resident who asked not to be named said that around 10 people had died, including 4 health care workers, after suffering from fever, diarrhoea and bleeding from the ears and nostrils - all symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus (infection) ..."

Note: Those are all also possible symptoms of acute hydrogen sulfide poisoning too. Numerous people have mysteriously bled out from nose/ears/mouth and died in the last couple of years or so, most of them before there ever was any Ebola outbreak anywhere. Any rivers or streams or lakes near there?

    1. Well, that certainly isn't going to help things - that means more huge amounts of mass moving from the thick continental plates to the thin oceanic plates, resulting in yet more volcanic eruptions, more oceanic heating, more 'landfill-like' waters, more melting methane clathrates, more fires and explosions, and more people and animals sickening and dying.

      Anybody that thinks geoengineering will solve these problems - best get started! The hourglass is running out of sand.

    1. That's the kind of doom I like right there - distant doom! I watched Transcendence a few weeks ago and it was actually pretty scary, seeing what a godlike AI might do 'for our benefit'.

      Oh, and I don't think I won - the naked woman didn't climb MY flagpole! LMAO, I was thinking of just how Freudian that event was. She went to the top of a tall penis-shaped building, climbed its 'head', then squirted glue on the people below for the 'climax'. Reality is just beyond fiction. You try to sell this stuff as fiction and nobody'd buy it because it's too unbelievable!
