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.

2014-03-31 - Home explodes and burns on Sturgeon Bay Road on Drummond Island (Michigan), 1 killed:
2014-03-31 - Home explodes, burns and collapses in Danville (New Hampshire), woman missing, probably dead:
2014-03-31 - Home destroyed by explosion and fire in St. Louis Park (Minnesota), 1 injured:
Quote: "A St. Louis Park homeowner escaped her burning house after she and neighbors heard explosions Monday night."
2014-03-31 - Mobile home destroyed by explosion and fire in Petaluma (California):
Note: The home construction industry and mortuary and headstone businesses might fare pretty well with all these homes exploding. Explosive economic growth! I swear, I can put a positive spin on just about anything...
2014-03-31 - Natural gas processing plant hit by explosion and fire along the Columbia River near Plymouth (Washington), 4 injured:
Quote: "A large explosion and fire Monday at natural gas processing plant near the Washington-Oregon border injured four workers and led to the evacuation of about 200 people from nearby homes as flames and a mushroom-shaped cloud of black smoke reached high into the air. The 8:20 a.m. blast at the Williams Northwest Pipeline plant in the town of Plymouth, along the Columbia River, also punctured a liquefied natural gas storage tank."
2014-03-31 - Port of Brownsville hit by explosion in Brownsville (Texas), 2 injured:
2014-03-31 - Coal mine rocked by explosion in Linfeng Township (China), 4 killed, 4 injured:
2014-03-31 - Landfill burns in coastal Sydney (Australia), residents worried about toxic smoke:
Quote: "The fear of deadly toxins, though, was only heightened as fire fighters used asbestos proof suits to assess the mountain of smoking rubble, which has forced families to shut themselves inside their homes."
Quote: "But the police and RMS wanted to know if motorists were exposed to steaming piles of toxic rubble, while Fire and Rescue confirmed air safety checks were confined to the site. Mr Wren added: 'We do have a Hazmat Unit here spasmodically monitoring the smoke to make sure it's safe again for the workers and for Fire and Rescue staff.'"
Note: I think he meant 'sporadically', unless the people doing the measuring are having spasms, which actually wouldn't be too shocking. Also, will updated tourism literature mention the deadly toxins blowing around there? Just curious!
2014-03-31 - Landfill erupts in flame, flames 200 feet high, on the island of Anguilla (Britain):
Quote: "Fire Consultant Jim Bunting from the United Kingdom described the fire as severe, with flames up to 200 feet high and covering an area of about two acres. Black billowing smoke was seen over much of the south and western areas of the island. The fire burnt profusely due to the amount of combustible material in the metal objects."

2014-03-31 - At least 20 homes destroyed by inferno in Rautahat District (Nepal):
2014-03-31 - Underground fire could endanger community if it reaches nuclear waste, in Bridgeton (Missouri):
Quote: "The EPA agrees that the heat will not make the waste more or less radioactive, or cause it to explode. But since no one knows what else is mixed in with the radioactive waste, a subsurface fire could potentially react with those unknown substances, causing an explosion."
Note: So we could theoretically see explosions blowing radioactive material into the air, and radon gas spewing out, if the underground fire reaches the nuclear waste. I hope it didn't take any rocket scientists to figure out that it'd be bad news...
2014-03-31 - Pilot smells smoke, passenger plane makes emergency landing in coastal Jamaica:
Quote: "Maintenance teams were evaluating a JetBlue plane at a Jamaican airport on Tuesday, a day after the Florida-bound jetliner was forced to return to the island because the flight crew smelled smoke minutes after takeoff."

The blaze broke out in the eastbound lanes near 232nd Street Monday afternoon, leaving little of the truck on the road beyond its charred wheels. A container truck hauling chicken feed in the other direction toppled into a ditch not far away, spilling its cargo all over the highway."
Note: One big rig burning and another overturning, same highway, different sides, same time - wouldn't be so sure those were unrelated. They definitely had a few things in common: timeframe, geographic area and the atmosphere...

Quote: "Three deer were found dead today in the forests of Nandadevi National Park near Joshimath during a search in the wake of reports that they were dying one after another of some infectious disease in the area."

Quote: "Cal Fire crews today will go into 24-hour stand-by mode at fire stations in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties in the face of tinderbox conditions exacerbated by meager winter rainfall. The seasonal workforce increases in Southern California don't typically begin until May or June. So far this year, Cal Fire has responded to more than 800 wildfires. In an average year, its personnel would typically fight fewer than 275 blazes."
Note: So, a month or two before they would normally call up seasonal workers and already they've fought more than 800 fires compared to 275 for an average year! That's a huuuuuge increase...

2014-03-31 - Volcano Ubinas erupts, spews ash onto village of Querapi (Peru):
2014-03-31 - Magnitude 4.7 earthquake strikes near the Three Gorges Dam (China):
Quote: "Zigui and nearby counties are not traditionally associated with earthquakes, according to the historic record. Some 18 earthquakes were recorded in 2003 when the Three Gorges project started operation, the 21st Century Business Herald reported. Neighboring Badong county had one earthquake in 1,000 years before 1985. Between 2003 and 2011, there have been more than 70 earthquakes of magnitude-2 or stronger, the Beijing-based newspaper reported."
Note: Three Gorges holds a whole lot of water, and water is heavy, so all that extra mass is adding stress to the underlying geology. The same thing is happening all around the world as vast amounts of mass flow from the thick continental plates to the thin oceanic plates as the ice around the world melts away, resulting in more quakes and volcanic eruptions, especially in the oceans and near coastlines...
2014-03-31 - Fire-detection cameras considered in Austin (Texas):
