Event Update For 2014-08-22





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.

Quote: "An investigation is under way into the cause of a massive barn blaze on Sheppey early today - the third in just weeks."

Note: They're 'investigating as arson' the other two fires. They haven't eliminated accidental causes, like hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rust or electrified copper, so they're not too terribly competent there. They'll probably be spending an increasing amount of their work hours chasing ghosts - nonexistent arsonists - until they get a clue. In the meantime, might as well watch the Isle of Sheppey go up in flames!

They seem to have omitted that part of the story. Otherwise, just looks like another person dropping dead outdoors near a coast...

    Drought leaves California homes without water

    PORTERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Hundreds of rural San Joaquin Valley residents no longer can get drinking water from their home faucets because California's extreme drought has dried up their individual wells, government officials and community groups said.

    The situation has become so dire that the Tulare County Office of Emergency Services had 12-gallon-per person rations of bottled water delivered on Friday in East Porterville, where at least 182 of the 1,400 households have reported having no or not enough water, according to the Porterville Recorder (http://bit.ly/1rsgwsZ ).

    Many people in the unincorporated community about 52 miles north of Bakersfield also have been relying on a county-supplied 5,000-gallon water tank filled with non-potable water for bathing and flushing toilets, The Recorder said.

    Emergency services manager Andrew Lockman, said the supplies of bottled water distributed by firefighters, the Red Cross and volunteer groups on Friday cost the county $30,000 and were designed to last about three weeks but are only a temporary fix. To get future deliveries, officials are asking low-income residents to apply for aid and for companies to make bottled water donations like the one a local casino made a few weeks ago.

    Magnitude 6.0 earthquake knocks out power to thousands in California

    An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 struck the San Francisco Bay Area early Sunday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    The quake's epicenter was near American Canyon, but the reverberations were felt miles away, as far south as Santa Cruz. Initial reports said at least 25,000 residents — and as many as 50,000 — were without power after the quake struck around 3:30

    I just liked this picture, thought you might also:

    1. Uh oh! And that California quake - someone mentioned seeing a blue flash. That may have been methane shaken up by that quake, that bubbled to the surface and found an ignition source.

      Volcanic island getting erupty (Iceland), major quake near the coast in California, major quake near the coast in Chile, hundreds of new methane vents detected along the East Coast - things are not looking good.

      'We're setting the stage for a decade of discovery', that article says. Yeah, if by 'discovery' they mean 'catastrophe'!

  6. Or the gas is moving the rocks. Once turned to vapor it tends to get pushy.

    1. I had considered that too. Some people said that quake 'felt weird', like something was shifting around below ground. Maybe that was some gas migrating underground as the clathrates dissociate along the coast, eventually creating enough pressure to crack rock and actually cause that quake.

      Looks like there was a magnitude 7.0-ish quake in Peru today too, to go along with the Chile and California quakes.
