Event Update For 2015-04-30

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.

2015-04-30 - Dead zones spotted in the open ocean in the Atlantic for the first time:

Quote: "Researchers have discovered dead zones in the Atlantic Ocean with oxygen levels low enough to kill most marine life, according to a report published Thursday. It added that it was the first time such zones, which usually occur near coastlines, were observed in the open ocean."

2015-04-30 - Hundreds of methane gas flares found spewing methane from the seafloor near Gisborne (New Zealand):,tst

Quote: "They remapped the area and discovered that every area of carbonate rock and every fault seen on the seafloor was expelling gas. They believe there are 766 individual gas flares within the area."

Quote: "Preliminary indications are that methane is reaching the ocean surface - this is the first time this has been measured in New Zealand..."

2015-04-30 - HazMat event, rotten-egg odor hits business in Springdale (Arkansas), nothing found:

Quote: "Firefighters said a portion of the building was evacuated after a 'rotten egg smell' was reported, but there was no hazardous gas or odor found."

Note: What kind of detectors did they use? Probably just natural gas detectors. They add methyl mercaptan to natural gas so that it has any smell at all and methyl mercaptan smells like rotten eggs. But so does hydrogen sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide won't show up on natural gas detectors. Hydrogen sulfide will also sink to the ground, flow to basements, and adsorb onto matter, and once it's adsorbed onto matter - like wood, concrete, etc - then it won't show up on gas detectors even if you DO have a hydrogen sulfide gas detector. But it can still poison you via skin contact with the contaminated matter...

2015-04-30 - Volcano Calbuco erupts again, third time in a week, in Chile:

Quote: "The Chilean volcano that erupted spectacularly twice last week is causing more chaos after once again spewing a cloud of ash and gas into the sky. Calbuco began erupting again today, sending a massive plume of smoke into the clear blue sky. The volcano spewed over 200 million tonnes of ash last week, coating nearby towns, wrecking the local salmon industry, and forcing the cancellation of flights as far as Buenos Aires, some 870 miles away."

2015-04-30 - Volcano Piton de la Fournaise rumbling on Reunion Island (France):

Quote: "A new eruption could be on its way at the volcano. A sharp increase in volcanic CO2 emissions, significant deformation of the Dolomieu crater, and a migration of earthquakes from deep to shallow (7 km) levels, as well as earthquakes near the surface itself that have appeared over the past weekend suggest new magma is on its rise to a possible new eruption, which would be the second in 2015."

2015-04-30 - Recycling plant hit by fire, pile of wood ignites in the rain, in Hardeeville (South Carolina), near the coast:

Quote: "Norm Lamarche, General Manager at Able Contracting Inc., in Okatie, responds to questions about a fire that started early in the morning at Able Contracting Inc., on April 30, 2015. 'seems very suspicious that a fire starts in the rain,' said Lamarche."

Note: No more suspicious than peoples' tapwater being flammable, which has been happening too. Methane is odorless, and it is also lighter-than-air so it's accumulating in the upper atmosphere. Some is probably getting into the rain - there's no reason it wouldn't. Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas but it too will get blown into the upper atmosphere from time to time and it's also water-soluble. So the rain itself may ignite fires and eventually the rain itself may be flat-out flammable, just like the flammable tapwater that people have reported in their homes in recent years. Just think about the consequences of flammable rain...

And there've been some anecdotal reports of shower doors mysteriously shattering too. I don't know for sure what the cause is, but hydrogen sulfide is corrosive to steel and concrete so it's not a huge stretch to think that it might have some effect on at least some kinds of glass as well, degrading the glass over time and causing it to shatter unexpectedly here and there...

  1. Hey Jonny - thanks for another super up-date. i took three of the stories (the garbage fire in the truck, the story sharon gave you, and the one about the lady in the burning wheel-chair, along with your comment about flammable RAIN) and posted them over on NBL with a link back to here of course.

    The Universe Might Be A Giant Hologram. Cue The Existential Crisis...

    “If quantum gravity in a flat space allows for a holographic description by a standard quantum theory, then there must by physical quantities [sic], which can be calculated in both theories –- and the results must agree," Grumiller said in a written statement.

    Indeed, they found that the value of the entanglement entropy in both theories was the same, which means it's possible the holographic principle does apply to our universe -- and by extension, our universe could be holographic.

    It was the third to occur in the city this month, officials said. On Monday last week, a tornado damaged some P2 million worth of fruiting banana plants in Barangay Paco. Another damaged 27 houses in Barangay Magatos in Kabacan town, according to Mayor Herlo Guzman.
