2015 - FEB - Other Stories

2015-02-01 - Whitney Houston's daughter found unresponsive in bathtub, rushed to hospital, near Atlanta (Georgia):

Quote: "Nobody knows what caused Brown's unresponsiveness, Holland said, but police consider it a medical incident at this time. She said investigators had found nothing to indicate it was drug- or alcohol-related."

2015-02-01 - Woman, 51, has respiratory problems on cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico, medevac'd off:

Quote: "The Coast Guard said Sunday that it received word Saturday night that a 51-year-old woman was having respiratory problems on the Carnival ship Magic. Authorities dispatched a helicopter Saturday night to a ship more than 180 miles offshore from Galveston."

2015-02-01 - Several passengers sicken on cruise ship, another passenger has 'medical emergency', near coastal Baltimore (Maryland):

Quote: "Also on Sunday an on-board guest experienced a medical emergency and was initially treated in the ship's medical facility but will require additional medical attention that can only be provided in a land-based hospital, Martinez said. It's unclear if that guest's medical issue was related to the others who were sickened."

2015-02-01 - Man, 26, goes swimming, found foaming from the mouth and unconscious at beach in coastal Piti on the island of Guam:

Quote: "Salas said the man was unresponsive and foaming at the mouth, and that a family member of the man administered CPR."

Quote: "Salas did not know what caused the near drowning, adding the man was not in open water but swimming near rocks he could have easily reached."

Note: Near rocks he could easily have reached unless he was busy being unconscious and/or having a seizure or 'medical event'. Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble and it's rising from the depths, so you won't know when water is contaminated or not. And it could be contaminated in one area but just fine 20 feet away. Contact with contaminated water can sicken you, knock you unconscious or kill you. In fact, being knocked unconscious in water will often kill you simply from breathing water once unconscious. You can breathe it in gas form as it blows around in the atmosphere and sicken or die that way too, but that's not the ONLY way it's killing people...

2015-02-01 - Floods and landslides hit Indonesia, 2 killed, 5000 homes damaged:

2015-02-02 - Strange creature seen by farmers in Sarawak (Indonesia):

Note: Possibly a genetic chimera, a blending of two species. If so then it looks like this one may have some human genes in it. They'd best hope that this is a one-off and that there's not a breeding colony of these things established in the area...

2015-02-02 - Unusual earthquake swarm rattles people in the Pribilof Islands (Alaska):

Quote: "The roughly 100 residents of St. George were worried about the sudden earthquakes, Mayor Patrick Pletnikoff said Monday. 'Holy moly, it gets you thinking about what's going on with the environment out here,' Pletnikoff said. Pletnikoff, 67, was born and raised on the island. He said he can't recall ever feeling an earthquake before Friday."

2015-02-05 - Magnitude 4.3 earthquake shakes Wichita (Kansas):

2015-02-05 - Command-And-Control E-4B Nightwatch plane visits Tulsa (Oklahoma):

Quote: "It's a military version of the Boeing 747 called the E-4B Nightwatch. The Pentagon uses the plane for what it calls the National Airborne Operations Center or NAOC for short. In a national emergency, the president, secretary of defense and/or the Joint Chiefs of Staff would use it to command of the military. The idea is that it's so mobile, it would be very hard for enemy forces to target it. Because it's considered a national security asset, the Air Force won't talk about its operational activity, including its training flights."

2015-02-05 - Heavy snowfall traps 200 motorists between Cantabria and the province of Palencia (Spain):

2015-02-06 - Children sickened at school, unknown cause, in coastal West Palm Beach (Florida):

Quote: "Palm Beach County School District confirmed Friday that HazMat crews responded to Jeaga Middle School on Jog Road in West Palm Beach for reports of an unknown chemical that impacted 2 science classrooms. Sixty children were evaluated for possible exposure to the unknown chemical."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2015-02-06 - Ancient hydrogen-sulfide-rich atmosphere may have created vast gold deposits at Witwatersrand Basin in South Africa:

Quote: "The gold deposits in the Witwatersrand, which are unique worldwide, could have thus been formed only during a certain period of the Earth’s history: after the development of the first continental life forms in shallow lakes at least 3 billion years ago, but before the first emergence of free oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere approximately 2.5 billion years ago."

2015-02-06 - Jennifer Lawrence poses naked with boa constrictor:

2015-02-07 - Milky rain falls on Oregon and Washington, possible volcanic ash in the rain:

2015-02-07 - Volcán de Fuego erupts explosively, splatters ash onto nearby towns, in Guatemala:

Quote: "A national disaster preparedness official in Guatemala says the Fire Volcano has exploded, spewing incandescent rock and ash that dusted surrounding communities."

2015-02-08 - Microscopic metal orbs found in the atmosphere which spew out something:

Note: Some kind of nano-device to fight the atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and methane contamination problem by delivering something that reacts away hydrogen sulfide and/or methane? I wonder what these things do to a person when someone inhales them into their lungs...

2015-02-08 - Mount Shindake inflating and releasing increased amounts of volcanic gases on Kuchinoerabujima Island (Japan):

Quote: "A volcano on an inhabited island in Kagoshima Prefecture that erupted last August for the first time in 34 years is again showing signs of increased volcanic activity. The amount of volcanic gas emitted from Mount Shindake on Kuchinoerabujima island has increased greatly this year. Experts said there was a possibility of volcanic activity, such as rising magma, and urged caution about a possible new eruption."

2015-02-08 - Giant rats continue spreading across Britain, new 20-incher found:

Quote: "Estimates of the UK's rat population - seen and unseen - range between 10-80 million. But anecdotal evidence suggests that rats in general, and big rats in particular, are on the up."

2015-02-08 - Girl born already pregnant with twins in Kowloon, Hong Kong (China):

2015-02-09 - Sulfurous landfill odor blowing around Tawa (New Zealand):

Quote: "What's causing those smells is sulfur gas. Normally in Wellington the wind is there and it mixes it up and nobody notices it."

Note: Nobody notices it until their kidneys fail, or their brain rots and they go insane, or they fall over dead, or they or their vehicle bursts into flame, or their home explodes, or they lose consciousness while driving and crash, etc, etc. THEN they notice. But then, by and large, it's too late for the noticing to matter...

2015-02-09 - Hubble telescope captures image of the universe smiling at us:

2015-02-09 - Killer shrimp could invade the Great Lakes:

Quote: "Killer shrimp, creatures that indiscriminately slay other animals without eating them, may soon join the list of invasive species living in the Great Lakes, a new study finds."

2015-02-10 - Two passengers sicken on cruise ship near coastal Miami (Florida):

2015-02-10 - White cloud spotted rising from the ocean near Tonga, possibly volcanic:

Quote: "An earlier eruption, that began late last year and lasted about five weeks, created new land in the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai region, which is about 65 kilometres northwest of the capital, Nuku'alofa."

Note: Could be another submarine volcanic eruption, and maybe a new island will form here too...

2015-02-10 - Arctic blast heads toward the US Midwest, some guy in St. Louis shivers:

2015-02-11 - NTSB wants nationwide audit of smoke/fire safety in underground transit systems:

Quote: "Metro systems that travel underground in the United States may be unprepared for smoke or fire emergencies, National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Keith Holloway said Tuesday. The board wants a nationwide audit of transit systems, with emphasis on trains that operate in enclosed tunnels. The huge undertaking would be the first of its kind, Holloway said. The call for an audit comes as investigators look into a January 12 fatal accident that happened near the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station in Washington. An electrical malfunction inside the tunnel caused train cars to fill with smoke. Passengers who were trapped inside said they struggled to breathe. One female passenger died."

Quote: "Hamby’s lime green kayak and other belongings were found Thursday morning on the Georgia side of the lake not far from where Hamby put his boat into the lake..."

2015-02-12 - Volcano Colima (Mexico) erupts explosively, blows ash 29,000 feet into the sky:

Quote: "A small pyroclastic flow - or quick current of hot gas and rock - traveled down the mountain's steep slope, according to Volcano Discovery. The science site says residue from the blast drifted northeast and fell across several cities in Jalisco state."

2015-02-13 - Rotten egg odor hits school in Midwest City (Oklahoma), school evacuated, nothing found:

Note: Someone called in a smell of natural gas. Natural gas is odorless, but they add methyl mercaptan to it, which smells like rotten eggs. But so does hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations, so this was probably low-level hydrogen sulfide, which would explain why they detected no natural gas anywhere. They said it may have come from a nearby oil well. That very well could be: hydrogen sulfide is what makes oil and natural gas 'sour' and is eventually removed from the oil/gas at refineries. So that nearby oil well may be leaking poison gas onto this area from time to time...

2015-02-15 - Volcano erupts, blows ash 25,000 feet into the air, on Paramushir Island (Russia):

Quote: "KVERT warns that a larger explosion, with ash plumes of 10 km or more, could occur. After Klyuchevskoy, Shiveluch, Zhupanovsky and Karymski volcanoes on Kamchatka, it is the fifth Russian volcano currently erupting in the region, posing danger to aviation."

2015-02-15 - Cal Fire starts hiring firefighters earlier than usual for the upcoming fire season:

Note: Good move...

2015-02-15 - Giant wave knocks people off boat in Haleiwa Boat Harbor (Hawaii), 1 injured:

2015-02-15 - Rat population exploding in the Sourhill area of Ballymena (Ireland):

Quote: "Residents in the Sourhill area of Ballymena say they have witnessed a huge rise in the rodent population in recent months. They have been warned to be vigilant and keep their doors shut while efforts are made to kill off the vermin. Pictures show rats roaming close to homes in broad daylight, with videos showing them scurrying past dog walkers close to a golf course in the area."

2015-02-15 - Fox population exploding near Canberra (Australia):

Note: Ship the foxes to Ireland to help with the rat problem?! Or the US could start shipping invasive pythons to Canberra to help with the fox problem. We've got options. And problems!

2015-02-16 - Volcano Colima erupts again on the west coast of Mexico:

2015-02-17 - Fish with two mouths caught in lake near Barmera (Australia):

2015-02-17 - Vast bed of manganese nodules found on ocean floor near Barbados:

Note: Here is an article from 2006, explaining how a form of dissolved manganese in ocean water reacts with oxygen from above and hydrogen sulfide from below, helping to keep the hydrogen sulfide layer in check in the oceans. So maybe these manganese nodules on the ocean floor were formed slowly over time by the results of that reaction...

2015-02-18 - Extreme cold temps freeze Niagara Falls (New York):

2015-02-19 - Firefighter has medical emergency and collapses at scene of fire in Houston (Texas):

Quote: "Authorities say Dwight Bazile, a 37-year HFD veteran who works out of Station 46, had suffered some kind of medical emergency. Bazile was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where authorities say he is in 'extremely critical' condition."

Note: Many fires nowadays are going to have some hydrogen sulfide in the smoke, which is a deadly poison, as lethal as hydrogen cyanide, which is what is used in gas chambers to execute people. This kind of event has been happening to firefighters (and others near fires) with increasing regularity: people collapsing into burn piles, people burning to death near campfires, people fleeing house fires just to collapse and die, that kind of thing. If there's a fire, you probably should avoid breathing in any smoke because there's no way to know just how deadly it might be...

2015-02-19 - Landfill odors hitting Lower Saucon Township (Pennsylvania):

Quote: "...however, the smell of what can only be termed as a mix of methane gas and rotting garbage still persists and now with an increased frequency."

2015-02-19 - Low-flying plane over coastal Staten Island (New York) poses no threat, officials say, but they won't say what it's doing:

Quote: "A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration told the Advance the agency was in touch with the aircraft during its flight and had been aware of its presence -- but said he could not disclose more information about what it was doing."

Note: After a 'rotten egg' odor started blowing in off the ocean onto Quincy (Massachusetts) in 2013, a mysterious plane started buzzing Quincy too, and again nobody would say what it was for. That event was mentioned in the 2013-05-10 update...

2015-02-19 - UPS buys 18 drone-capable delivery trucks:

Quote: "Burns says the trucks cost $.30 per mile to run compared to $1.00 per mile with gas and maintenance in a regular truck. Atop the trucks is room for an add-on horsefly drone -- for use when commercial drones are approved by the FAA. The horsefly drone was developed by AMP Electric Vehicles and University of Cincinnati researchers, the station reports. The drone has a claw that sticks down into the cabin of the truck so that the driver can hand it packages, WVXU adds."

2015-02-20 - Strange loud noise frightening people in coastal South Shields (Britain):

2015-02-20 - Yacht 'Enya II' found with nobody aboard in the Coral Sea:

Note: What do you do if a cloud of invisible hydrogen sulfide burps from the ocean and blows over you when you're on a boat? You either jump overboard and die or you stay aboard and die...

2015-02-20 - Mysterious wave-like cloud hugs mountains in Wyoming:

Quote: "The clouds looked like a billowing handkerchief or an ocean's wave crashing into the mountain. The clouds were so strange they even surprised park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs.  'I've lived here for almost 40 years, and honestly, I've never seen something last that long and take so many different shapes,' Skaggs told Live Science."

2015-02-20 - Rare Arctic gyrfalcon spotted in Ulster County (New York):

2015-02-20 - Rare hooded oriole seen in Charlotte (North Carolina):

2015-02-20 - Snowy owl seen in Hungary for the first time since 1891:

2015-02-21 - Hydrogen sulfide sickening people at Casey Middle School in Boulder (Colorado):

Quote: "Hydrogen sulfide is present in the Casey air because sewer gas has leaked into the building."

Quote: "Scientists do not know the effects of long-term, chronic H2S exposure. No one in the world positively knows that it is safe for children to breathe sewer gas for three years."

Note: I doubt it's safe to breathe ANY deadly poison gas, even in low concentrations, for that long. The long-term effects just can't be good, but they might be subtle: brain damage causing ADD or ADHD, kidney problems, liver problems, heart problems, all of which may not manifest for years, all kindsa stuff. Not that we have many years left anyway, but still...

2015-02-21 - Locust swarms hitting the Central West Local Land Services region (Australia):

2015-02-21 - Magnitude 4.4 earthquake hits Yunnan Province (China), 280 buildings destroyed:

Quote: "The quake, at a depth of six kilometers, hit Mojiang Hani Autonomous County at 6:37 am. No casualties have been reported. A total of 276 houses were damaged, 280 buildings have been destroyed."

2015-02-21 - Highest tides in two decades bring flooding to areas in and around Bristol (Britain):

2015-02-21 - Seven Arctic snowy owls seen in New York City (New York):

Note: I can confirm that it is cold in the Midwest too. So cold and so windy, in fact, that they issued a wind chill advisory, which I have never seen before in this area. Maybe Arctic snowy owls love this sh#t, but I don't. What sucks is, how do I know when to start seeds indoors to plant outdoors, if I have no clue when it'll be warm enough to plant anything outdoors? And that's just a microcosm of the problem all farmers are going to face going forward. The climate is destabilized, and nothing is predictable now. The Army trained to quell civilian food riots in 2011 or 2012. I'm beginning to understand why such training might be needed...

2015-02-22 - Magnitude 6.2 earthquake strikes off the west coast of Mexico:

2015-02-22 - Gas prices hit $3/gallon again in California after recent refinery explosion:

2015-02-23 - Four new big methane-explosion craters found in Siberia (Russia), flash of light spotted:

Quote: "And, following the discovery of a funnel at Antipayuta, on the Yamal Peninsula, nearby residents told scientists about seeing a flash of light, possibly as a result of gas exploding."

Quote: "The craters are thought to be caused by eruptions of methane gas from the permafrost as rising temperatures causes the frozen soil to melt."

Quote: "One potential new site is particularly ominous: A 5sq/km lake which is not on older satellite images of the area. Researchers say it may have formed from an eruption of a cluster of blowholes, the largest of which appears to measure some 100m by 50m. Methane plumes can be seen bubbling up through its waters."

Note: Heat is now rising from BELOW, thus the melting roads at Yellowstone Park, the numerous volcanic islands that have formed from undersea volcanic eruptions in the last two years, the ground exploding and burning in Vietnam, the methane clathrates melting all around the world, the record-setting warm ocean temps in 2014, and so on. There is no technology that will make heat stop rising from below, so the problem is out of our hands. The surface of the Earth will not be survivable by human beings (or much of anything else that breathes oxygen). So, it's Plan B or death. Those are the choices. Waiting around, not facing the problem, pretending there isn't a problem - that's the death option. So far, that does seem to be the plan.

Nor is the problem 'just' methane, although just the methane alone would be enough to eradicate the human race from the surface of the Earth. That heat is also beneficial to the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that emit hydrogen sulfide, and those microbes eat methane for food. So the environment is becoming more to their liking and they're doing what bacteria do when life is good: they're reproducing. It is no coincidence that two major cities have now been hit by giant clouds of hydrogen sulfide in recent times (Kuwait City and Moscow), right as the methane around the world is blowing its top. And at the same time, deep ocean life is bubbling up dead all over the place, people have begin collapsing dead, sometimes foaming at the mouth, sometimes bleeding out from mouth/nose/ears, and fires and explosions are destroying vehicles, homes and businesses.

The Earth itself is becoming a very large and very lethal gas chamber. Anyone who hangs around in a gas chamber that's filling up with deadly poison gas ends up dead. So, do we act in the interests of our own survival or do we lollygag and continue dying until we're extinct? Time will tell, but tick-tock, tick-tock, we are running out of time...

2015-02-23 - Mysterious tremors shaking homes and alarming people in coastal Coral Gables (Florida):

Quote: "Mysterious tremors have been plaguing Coral Gables residents repeatedly since the start of February. The quakes are strong enough to rattle a cup of coffee but not spill it. Yet, no one seems to have an answer."

2015-02-24 - 'Rotten egg' gas odor hits strip mall in Shorewood (Illinois), no natural gas detected:

Note: Maybe they didn't detect any natural gas because it wasn't natural gas. Hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations smells like rotten eggs. So does the methyl mercaptan they add to odorless natural gas so it has any smell at all. Since they both smell like 'rotten eggs', people are confusing the two. People obviously smelled a gas with an odor of 'rotten eggs' here, but it wasn't natural gas and its additive or they'd have detected what else could it have been but hydrogen sulfide?

2015-02-24 - Britain becomes first nation to allow embryos created from 3 people:

Note: Not for everyone, just for women with mitochondrial DNA problems. They take the nucleus of an egg from a woman with mitochondrial DNA problems, insert it into the outer part of an egg from a woman with no mitochondrial problems, and that makes up the new egg, with DNA from two women. And then 15 years from now, these kids will hit puberty and they'll all start displaying superpowers, and SyFy Channel will have a new series! Okay, okay, I added that part...

Quote: "Kalimantan is among the regions in the archipelago known to be free of earthquakes, but a recent series of light to strong quakes recorded in North Kalimantan have shaken that belief. The latest quake was one recorded measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale that hit Tarakan on Tarakan Island in North Kalimantan at 9.31 a.m. local time on Wednesday."

2015-02-26 - Researchers scared to study emerging methane explosion craters in Siberia:

Quote: "One potential disaster relates to the explosions themselves. No one has been hurt in any of the blasts, but given the size of some of the craters, it's fair to say the methane bursts are huge. Researchers are nervous about even studying them. Who knows when a methane geyser will shoot off again? 'These objects need to be studied, but it is rather dangerous for the researchers,' Bogoyavlensky told the Siberian Times."

2015-02-27 - Man, 36, goes on gun rampage and 74 year old woman drops dead, in Tyrone (Missouri), 8 killed:

Note: They say maybe he found the woman dead and that set him off. Maybe a cloud of hydrogen sulfide blew through and killed her AND drove this guy insane. She was 74 and a woman so it would take less poison to kill her; what might kill HER might just drive a grown man insane. Can't exactly ask him any questions, him being dead and all. In any case, as the atmospheric contamination continues to intensify, it definitely looks like crazy violent behavior is on the rise too. Sometimes it'll be people with knives, sometimes guns, and for the REALLY seriously brain-damaged - so damaged they can't even speak anymore and can only growl (that's damage to the speech center of the brain), like the original face-eater and others like him - then they'll just use their teeth and hands to attack...
