Event Update For 2015-04-03

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.

2015-04-03 - New study shows that hydrogen sulfide was important factor in Permian-Triassic extinction:

Quote: "The new report described a phenomenon called ‘marine photic zone euxinia,’ which happens when the surface waters in the ocean become devoid of oxygen and are made toxic by hydrogen sulfide –a by-product of anaerobic microbes."

Note: Heh, just as I've been saying all along. Now they're just one step away: it's happening NOW too. It might take 'em a while to reach that conclusion themselves, but since it's the truth then they don't have any choice, unless they prefer to die instead of facing reality. And once they DO reach the same conclusion, then they'll need to understand the effects, the fire vulnerabilities, the neurological problems in animals and humans, the effects on our transportation infrastructure, etc. I've already done a great deal of that work for them, so hopefully that'll give the scientists of the world a leg up once they accept reality, if they should do so before we're all dead...

2015-04-03 - GE Appliance facility devastated by six-alarm inferno in Louisville (Kentucky):

Quote: "The cause of the largest structure fire ever in Jefferson County, which turned into a six-alarm fire and drew around 200 firefighters from all suburban departments, may not be know for weeks. But the fallout was incalculable."

Quote: "About 3,000 GE production employees now working at Appliance Park were told to stay home for at least the next week — and about 3,000 salaried workers were told they'd be updated about their schedule on Monday."

Quote: "GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman said there were no known injuries. She said the building engulfed in flames was used for offices and storage, and is also used by a private supplier distribution center."

Note: I saw some semi trailers in some of the pics and videos, and there was a distribution center here, so I imagine there were some tractor trailers around here somewhere...

2015-04-03 - Nearly 600 cars destroyed by huge fire at car dealership in coastal Busan (South Korea):

Quote: "Nearly 600 cars were destroyed when a huge fire broke out at a used car dealership on Friday in South Korea's second largest city of Busan. Due to the extent of the blaze, around 200 residents were evacuated from their houses in the residential areas around the dealership. No one was injured or killed in the incident, but loss to property was estimated at around three million US dollars according to the County fire officials."

Note: In March, a tanker ship went up in flames off the coast of Busan, mentioned in the 2015-03-14 update, and a car-carrier ship burst into flame near Busan, mentioned in the 2015-03-01 update...

2015-04-03 - Update on the March 7 Public Works fire in Hopewell Township (New Jersey): 24 trucks destroyed:

Quote: "All 24 of the vehicles in the portion of the Hopewell Township Public Works building that caught fire March 7 have been declared a total loss by the township’s insurance company, township Administrator/Engineer Paul Pogorzelski said. A dump truck that caught fire for an unknown reason started the blaze, which fire companies responded to at 10:15 p.m."

Quote: "Damaged vehicles include 13 dump trucks, a front-end loader, garbage truck, street sweeper, backhoe, bucket truck, sewer/water utility truck, roller, pickup truck, air compressor, tar pot and brush mower."

Note: I mentioned that fire in the 2015-03-08 update...

2015-04-03 - Rotten-egg stench from landfill disturbing people in Lordstown (Ohio):

Quote: "Neighbors have also described an odor in the air like sulfur or rotten eggs, which could be poisonous hydrogen sulfide."

Note: Yeah, and what happens when you breathe a poison gas like hydrogen sulfide - even at low concentrations - over a long period of time? Nobody really knows, and I wouldn't want to be a participant in that experiment because I am quite sure that the effects aren't good. BEST case, your lifespan is reduced and you die earlier...

2015-04-03 - Smoke in the cabin sends passenger plane to emergency landing at airport in Charleston (West Virginia):

Note: This is the 38th aircraft to smoke or burn in 2015...

2015-04-03 - Boat explodes and burns near coastal Belize City (Belize), at least 2 seriously injured:

People on the scene say that just seconds after the boat was started a loud sound was heard and the boat erupted in flames.

Note: This is the 291st boat or ship to burn in 2015...

2015-04-03 - Passenger train starts smoking and sparking in underwater tunnel near Hokkaido (Japan), tunnel evacuated for first time:

Quote: "It is the first time passengers have been evacuated from the 53.8-km-long tunnel since its opening in March 1988, JR Hokkaido said. The Seikan Tunnel runs under the Tsugaru Strait, linking Shiriuchi in Hokkaido with Imabetsu in Aomori.

It's spring, so people will be getting their RVs and boats out of storage and so more of those vehicles will be doing some burning. And once the hot weather hits, more people will be diving into water and sickening and/or dying too...

Thursday afternoon, the new piece of equipment purchased to replace that loader also was destroyed by fire while Lewick was using it, Sheriff Glen Kochanowski said. Kochanowski said Lewick was using the loader to push logs into a pile near the intersection of Girard and Shipton roads at about 4 p.m. when he heard a pop and looked back to see the engine of the loader on fire."

Note: So his skid steer burst into flame in February, then he got a new one, and now that one just burst into flame too. His insurance company might want to just open an account at the local skid steer store...

Note: Someone probably had a vehicle of some type in one of the units: motorcycle, lawnmower, etc. Or some rusty iron. Or electrified copper. All it takes is for ONE unit to contain such a thing and MANY units can get burned up. Just like the parking lot fires - one vehicle ignites and the fire spreads to other vehicles...

Quote: "Cutter said the individual driving the Smith Transport tractor-trailer was blacked out while operating the vehicle which caused him to crash into the gas station."

Note: Yep, you just can't count on drivers staying conscious or even alive anymore. When someone in a car blacks out, they're often the only one to die, after hitting a tree or plunging into a pond or whatever. But when it's a bus driver or a big rig driver or an aircraft pilot then there can be large numbers of casualties...
