Event Update For 2015-08-05

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.

2015-08-05 - Scrap yard hit by fire, 40 vehicles burn, in Allerdale (Britain):

Quote: "At 15:00 firefighters were called to a fire at a scrap yard in Aspatria. On arrival crews found 40 cars alight in a scrap yard. Update at 16:40 - there are now eight fire engines in attendance. The fire ground has been divided into sectors for efficient firefighting. Hose reel jets and ground monitor jets are being directed onto the fire. There is heavy smoke coming from the fire and residents are advised to keep doors and windows closed."

2015-08-05 - Massive explosions and 'flashes of light' in the sky rock coastal Bundaberg (Australia):

Quote: "Ms Ottoway said she was waiting for a friend to come over when she heard a bang. 'It sounded like it could have been something big,' she said. 'It shook my house.'"

Note: Sounds like larger versions of the 'flash of light' that knocked a medical helicopter out of the sky and killed both people aboard in Oklahoma City (Oklahoma), mentioned in the 2013-03-13 update. The Earth is pumping massive quantities of methane into the atmosphere now. Methane is explosively flammable. It'd be odd if there WEREN'T huge city-shaking explosions, sometimes accompanied by flashes of light, being reported around the world, but there are.

A proposed explanation in this instance is flares, and they did find a burnt flare. But flares don't cause explosions, much less enormous neighborhood-shaking explosions like these. However, the authorities may be using flares to PURPOSELY ignite atmospheric gas plumes BEFORE they hit a city and explode, which could destroy a city, or at least a substantial part of a city. That's why they trained late last year in coastal Manhattan (New York) to deal with the aftermath of a 10-kiloton explosion, mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update. That's also why the US government has deployed two billion-dollar blimps along the East Coast, primary mission to identify 'air-breathing threats', mentioned in the 2014-12-21 update. Eventually we're not going to be able to prevent the gas plumes from hitting populated areas and wiping people out. The estimates for a Manhattan explosion were for 100,000 people instantly killed. There are 5 trillion pounds of methane dissociating off the East Coast...

    The Dow Has Already Fallen Nearly 900 Points From The Peak Of The Market


    In an eerie repeat of what we witnessed in 2008, U.S. stocks are steadily sliding throughout the summer as we head toward the month of September. From August 1st, 2008 to September 1st, 2008 the Dow fell by nearly 700 points. And of course we all remember what happened the following month. Right now, we are watching a similar thing happen. The Dow has plummeted nearly 700 points since July 16th, and it is down nearly 900 points from the peak of the market back in May. At this point the Dow has now fallen for six days in a row and eleven of the last thirteen. Of course most of the talking heads on television are still insisting that everything is going to be just fine and that a repeat of 2008 is not possible. So what do you think? Should we trust them?

    Record High Methane Levels

    The image below shows that global mean methane levels as high as 1840 parts per billion (ppb) were recorded on August 4, 2015. Peak methane levels that day were as high as 2477 ppb.

    This peak level of 2477 ppb isn't the highest recorded the year. As the image below shows and as discussed in a previous post, methane levels as high as 2845 ppb were recorded on April 25, 2015. Very worrying about the above image are the high levels of methane showing up over the Arctic Ocean.
