http://www.wthr.com/story/29708784/fire-burning-at-roche-in-fishers

Note: All of the above fires were businesses involving vehicles. It doesn't really matter what kind of vehicles. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, and rusty iron/steel. Most vehicles are going to have at least one of the two, and usually both. It doesn't much matter if the vehicles are parked or being driven either, thus all the parked vehicles going up in flames. This same problem is also causing the rise in underground electrical fires and explosions. Also see the man, 70, who burned to death when his car suddenly burst into flame while he drove it in coastal Thiruvananthapuram (India) on this day. A man just burned to death in his burning car at 3 AM at a restaurant in Fayetteville (Arkansas) the day prior too, mentioned in the 2015-08-03 update...

Quote: "A Swedish bus carrying Asian tourists caught fire inside the 11.4 kilometer-long Gudvangatunnelen in the mountainous western county of Sogn og Fjordane on Tuesday. Police reported that around 30 to 40 people were in the tunnel at the time and were evacuated. Odd Arve SolvÄg, operations leader for the Sogn og Fjordane Police District, had earlier told state broadcaster NRK that there were no reports of injuries, but five people were later taken to hospital in Voss. The extent of their injuries was unclear."

Quote: "Emergency personnel responded to both sides of the tunnel, but the fire quickly spread to four other vehicles. Fortunately, a man in a van was able to save the 32 people on the bus by packing them inside his van and driving them out of the tunnel. It took firefighters two hours to put the fire out."

Note: Multi-cultural bus fire - a Swedish bus carrying Asian people burning in Norway. Bus travel, bringing people together, one fire at a time!

Quote: "A Putco bus caught fire near the Mabopane highway on Tuesday afternoon. Motorists were shocked to see the bus burst into flames in E’skia Mphahlele Road, said eyewitnesses Shimon Theron and Billy Hewie."

Note: These are the 500th, 501st, 502nd and 503rd buses to burn in 2015. Yesterday was RVs Burning Day so I thought I'd point out the bus fires today, although another 10 RVs were destroyed by fire while parked at a storage yard on this day, in Santa Maria (California)...

http://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2015/aug/13/tianjin-explosion-hundreds-injured-killed-china-blasts-latest-updates

Quote: "At least 50 people have been killed and 701 injured after two explosions at a warehouse containing large quantities of dangerous chemicals in the port city of Tianjin. Of those wounded 71 are said to be suffering severe injuries."

Quote: "The explosions were so massive they could be seen from space, according to satellite photos released by the Japan meteorological agency. The force of the blast also prompted alarm at China’s National Earthquake Network."

Quote: "Locals reported shockwaves that shattered glass more than two kilometres away, while the blast itself was seen by satellites from space. Even the US Geological Survey registered the event as seismic."

Quote: "Several buildings near the site collapsed, dozens of automobiles were reduced to burned-out husks, and nearby residents were evacuated, authorities said."

Quote: "Sulfur oxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide, all products of combustion, have been found in the air, Xinhua reported. Plumes of white and yellow smoke, which may be an indicator of toxic hydrogen sulfide, were seen rising over the area."

Note: This might be the largest explosion so far and considering the size of some of the previous explosions, that's saying something. This explosion, which ravaged the port area right on the coast, occurred shortly before midnight. Methane and hydrogen sulfide in the atmosphere get pushed closer to the ground at night as the atmosphere cools and contracts, making explosions, fires and people and animals sickening and/or dying more common during the late hours...

2015-08-13 - Robert Scribbler's take on a second 'Great Dying':
http://robertscribbler.com/2015/08/13/tumbling-down-the-rabbit-hole-toward-a-second-great-dying-world-oceans-face-is-now-shadowed-with-the-early-warning-signs-of-extinction/

Note: Well-written article. And he's gettin' there! He's now where I was back in 2010. By early January of 2011 I was sure it wasn't just a possibility but a certainty - all of the pieces of the puzzle were already there, especially rising planetary volcanism and dead zones spreading throughout the oceans. I waited an extra 13 months before going public anyway, to give the gooberment(s) time to put the foul djinni back in its metaphorical bottle if they could, but things got worse, so it was clear that the situation was out of control.

The next step after recognizing the problem, still ongoing, was figuring out the details in regard to how this extinction event affects modern human society, just in case people ever wake up and wish to work toward survival: the 'electrical' fires, the piles of metal burning, vehicles going up in flames, chemical plants exploding and burning, people and animals sickening and going insane and dying, the Sun getting whiter and less yellow and hitting the planet with more UV as Earth's oxidizing capacity is withered away by methane and hydrogen sulfide, unusual vehicular accidents as people lose consciousness or have seizures or 'medical events' or die while driving, the brake-friction problem, the adsorption problem, the underground explosions and fires, the biogenic sulfide corrosion problem, the recycling fires, yada yada. Details, details, but in this case the details are important.

Since Robert did such a good job there, I figure he deserves a Spotlight Story mention, so tada! And here are a couple of bonus interesting fire-related stories:

2015-08-13 - Mysterious explosion and flash of light ignites man's yard in Portland (Oregon):
http://www.katu.com/news/local/Portland-Oregon-man-thinks-perseid-meteor-hit-earth-starts-fire-in-his-front-yard-321801302.html

Quote: "Patrick Story says he heard a loud boom outside his house on Wednesday night, coupled with a flash of light. When he went outside, he found part of his front yard on fire in the shape of a circle."

2015-08-13 - Mysterious silent expanding cloud of fire seen in the sky over coastal Port Townshend (Washington):
https://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2341&category=Environment

Quote: "Red, yellow and orange kept expanding in the night sky just like flames  as if you were looking into a blast furnace. Nothing I've ever seen in my life  and I've seen a surface-to-air missile impact. But no sound!"

Note: The reason there was no sound is that this was a gas plume that burned in a 'flash fire', which is flammable gas sizzling away in the air as it burns but without exploding. There was also an object in the air, perhaps a drone of some kind. And it also sounds like the plume was hit by something from the ground that ignited it. That was probably 'the authorities' hitting it with some type of ground-based weapon that was used to ignite the gas on purpose and burn off the cloud of gas BEFORE it moved eastward and hit more populated areas...

Note: Not that dissimilar to the chemical warehouse that exploded in coastal Tianjin (China), mentioned in the 2015-08-12 update, although the explosions weren't as big and nobody was at this place so nobody got hurt this time. From the full hypothesis: "Likewise, chemical plants of all types will burn and/or explode, including biofuels plants, fertilizer plants, specialty chemical plants, petroleum-related facilities and more."

Quote: "Con Edison said the explosions on the corner of 45th Street and Ninth Avenue at about 4 p.m. caused a small fire underground. No one was hurt, but the fire was causing delays on Ninth Avenue from 45th to 57th streets as crews make repairs. The explosions follow earlier reports of smoking manholes in the same area."

Quote: "Three manhole explosions in quick succession’s on the corner of 45th and 9th Avenue starting just before noon tied up traffic for hours. The second explosion blew out a fifth floor window at the Film Center building on the corner and the third manhole explosion sent a manhole cover over 15 feet into the air, landing and destroying part of this fire hydrant."

STS is adjacent to the Century Industrial Coating plant in Cherokee County that exploded, and caught fire overnight Tuesday. The cause of that fire remains undetermined."

Note: The plant they mention that exploded and burned next to this recycling facility was listed in the 2015-08-12 update. At first I thought this was about that story and almost skipped over it, but nope, this is in addition to that event...

Note: Atmospheric contamination problem, planes fly through the atmosphere, more planes crashing - that's about as simple as it gets. It's definitely getting more dangerous to fly, but things are gonna get a whole lot worse before they get better. Actually, things will never get better, not on any timescale that means anything to human beings anyway. That said, you're still safer on big jumbo jets than on any kind of propeller-driven plane, even a big one, or helicopter. Even so, your odds of dying while flying are going to be going up as time goes on, regardless of the type of aircraft...

2015-08-17 - Recycling center destroyed by fire at Seabreeze Environmental Landfill in Freeport (Texas):
http://thefacts.com/free_share/article_70f48661-81b8-5272-abc1-cf09b4deac24.html

Quote: "Officials in several southern Brazoria County cities were left wondering what would happen to their recycling services Monday, as fire destroyed the center at the Seabreeze Environmental Landfill. 'It’s a 100 percent loss,' Brazoria County Fire Marshal Martin Vela said."

Note: More underground fires/explosions, more landfills and recycling centers burning. From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool."

2015-08-19 - Motel destroyed by explosion and fire in the wee hours in coastal Bremerton (Washington):
http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/fire-chief-bodies-found-debris-washington-state-motel-33188017
http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/local-news/gas-blast-hits-motel-6-in-bremerton_91630313

http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/19/us/washington-hotel-explosion/index.html
http://twitter.com/KING5Seattle/status/633863169232998401/photo/1

Note: Somebody 'smelled gas'. Natural gas is odorless so they add mercaptan to it, which smells like 'rotten eggs'. So does hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations. So people smelled rotten egg odor on the coast and a building exploded. Was it natural gas? Well, to answer that, one would need to know what the methane and hydrogen sulfide levels were in the air and in the ground...so what were they? Ah, nobody's even checking, so nobody will ever know what caused this explosion, though obviously AFTER the explosion the gas lines would have been ruptured.

Bremerton is just 45 miles from Port Townshend as the gas blows, where a man just saw a gigantic expanding cloud of fire in the sky, mentioned in the 2015-08-13 update. That was a 'flash fire' burning off a sizeable cloud of flammable gas in the atmosphere. Could be that a cloud just like that hit this motel, some gas got sucked in via the HVAC system, and then the motel exploded.

Pay attention to all explosions, and especially on coasts, from here on out, like this one, and the gigantic explosion that just destroyed a chemical warehouse in coastal Tianjin (China), mentioned in the 2015-08-12 update, and the refinery damaged by fire and possible explosion in coastal Shuaiba (Kuwait), mentioned in the 2015-08-17 update, and other events like those. They didn't train to deal with the aftermath of 10-kiloton explosions late last year in coastal New York City, mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update, for nothing. Here's a Google Maps link that shows both Bremerton and Port Townshend.

Finally, hydrogen sulfide is corrosive to steel and concrete, so it will CAUSE more gas leaks (and water main breaks leading to sinkholes, and more buildings collapsing) and it will also serve as the igniter for ANY kind of flammable gases in the air if there's any rusty iron/steel or electrified copper around, and there's usually one or the other if not both...

Quote: "Last year alone, 40 incidents of exploded pavements were reported in the capital according to Freedom of Information figures obtained by Labour London Assembly member Murad Qureshi."

Note: So 40 such events last year alone and 40 more combined for the other 4 years. In other words, the number of underground explosions is increasing...

Quote: "Driver died after car crashed into irrigation canal in southeast Bend Sunday morning; police say he apparently had a medical crisis."

Note: You just can't count on staying conscious - or even alive - while driving anymore. Or while not driving, for that matter. That's probably the cause of many of the small plane crashes too, but they just find a plane and a body, often burned to ashes, so they assume the plane crash caused the death and never stop to think that the pilot collapsing unconscious or dead might have been the very reason there was a crash...

2015-08-25 - Girl, 16, goes outside, collapses, foams at the mouth, 'dies', gets buried, 'comes back to life', dies again, in La Entrada (Honduras):

Note: She went to use an outdoor toilet in the middle of the night. Wee hours, toilet. She collapsed foaming at the mouth and was eventually pronounced dead. They buried her. A day later they heard her screaming and banging on the inside of the tomb. By the time they broke into the tomb, she was dead again. She was never dead the first time. Hydrogen sulfide can cause foaming at the mouth, as with all the other people who've mysteriously died foaming at the mouth in recent times. Hydrogen sulfide is also known to be able to put small mammals into 'suspended animation', where their body temp drops to room temp and their heartbeat is almost nonexistent. Even trained medical personnel can't tell the difference, and this has happened numerous times in recent years. I said a while ago that I bet people are being buried alive because of hydrogen sulfide's 'suspended animation' property and I'm sure that's true. We'll never know how many people have been mistakenly buried alive, to awaken later screaming and suffocating inside a coffin in the middle of the night in some cemetery.

Here are some other similar incidents:

2015-05-22 - Man, 46, collapses, pronounced dead, 'comes back to life', in Milwaukee (Wisconsin)

2015-01-03 - Man in his 40s found 'dead' STANDING UP in stream in Roodepoort (South Africa)

2013-11-07 - Man buried, 'rises from the grave', in Brazil

2012-06-06 - 'Dead' boy 'comes back to life', asks for water at funeral, dies again, in Brazil

For more information about this particular subject, see the 2013-07-21 update, when a newborn baby was pronounced dead and 'came back to life' in Londrina (Brazil). This 'suspended animation' property does seem rare, as in you have to be on the small side and you have to get JUST the right 'dose', else you're just plain dead. And even those who 'come back to life' tend to die again (for real) before long, as hydrogen sulfide is a deadly poison and causes damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, liver, circulatory system, etc.

2015-08-27 - Two men killed by unknown cause, 5 people injured, at home in Des Plaines (Illinois)

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150827/news/150828906/

Quote: "Investigators combed through a Des Plaines-area townhouse late into the night Thursday looking for clues to what caused a suspected hazardous material situation that left two men dead and a woman in critical condition. Authorities found the men's bodies shortly after 3:30 p.m. while responding to the home in the 9400 block of Harrison Street of Maine Township, after a family member called to report finding the three in distress."

Quote: "Four Cook County Sheriff's deputies also were hospitalized for evaluation after they had trouble breathing while in the home, as was the relative who found the victims."

Quote: "Upon entering the home, four Cook County sheriff's officers were unexpectedly overcome by some sort of hazardous agent, authorities said. 'They started feeling sick,' said Rick Dobrowski, chief of North Maine Fire Protection District. 'They were having some kind of breathing difficulties, we don’t know for sure.'"

Note: Whatever killed these men and sickened the others, it was highly lethal, it was a gas (else the guys walking in wouldn't have sickened too), and it was fast-acting, e.g. a 'knockdown agent'. Hydrogen sulfide fits all of those criteria. Not many things do. The first thing I'd check would be the sewer trap in that home because a malfunctioning sewer trap can allow hydrogen sulfide from the local sewer system to infiltrate a home, as with the woman who was gassed to death by hydrogen sulfide in her home in Kansas City, mentioned in the 2013-07-04 update.

If the sewer trap is working properly then it could simply have been an invisible blob of gas that blew by in the atmosphere and got sucked in via the HVAC system or got blown in through an open window or door. Running an AC unit or keeping any windows or doors open these days can be fatal. Of course, dying of heat stroke is fatal too, so this is quite a problem...

Quote: "A carport at a Mullaloo house was set ablaze early Thursday after an electrical fault from a car sparked a fire. About 6.42am firefighters were called to the Livonia Place residence in Mullaloo after a resident inside the home called emergency services."

2015-08-27 - Car bursts into flame at 6:42 AM while parked at home, fire spreads to home, on Lavinia Court in coastal Kallaroo (Australia):
http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/29361192/car-causes-house-fire/

Quote: "A car has sparked a house fire in Kallaroo this morning. The car was parked in the car port of a home on Lavinia Court when it caught fire about 6.45am. Twelve firefighters managed to put out the fire in less than an hour. Flames were contained to the area around the car port, however the home did sustain some smoke damage. The blaze caused $80,000 to the car and home."

Note: Could they have screwed up one of the above two stories? I dunno. The street names are similar, and the timing is very close, but there is actually a Livonia Place in Mullaloo and there is actually a Lavinia Court in Kallaroo, and the timing could be explained by the fact that Kallaroo is right next to Mullaloo, so a couple of blobs of gas blowing in off the ocean there could easily have hit two different cars at two different homes at close to the same time in adjacent towns. Here's a Google Maps link that shows both areas. Assuming these were two separate car fires, then these fires are eerily similar to the two boats that burst into flame within 3 minutes at different marinas in coastal Washington DC, mentioned in the 2014-02-11 update. Coincidence? Hah, no.

2015-08-28 - Purple waves washing ashore in Oregon:
http://www.beachconnection.net/news/wpurple082615_510.php

http://robertscribbler.com/2015/08/28/shades-of-a-canfield-ocean-hydrogen-sulfide-in-oregons-purple-waves/

Quote: "Another report from Neskowin said the purple waves had a funky smell to it..."

Note: That is probably purple sulfur bacteria, and that is a very bad sign indeed that this extinction event is storming ahead with ever-increasing strength. Purple sulfur bacteria consume hydrogen sulfide and they only exist in waters where there is already hydrogen sulfide present. So as the waters of the Earth become more contaminated with hydrogen sulfide, produced by sulfate reducing bacteria, there will be more outbreaks of purple sulfur bacteria. That appears to be happening now.

This is a sign that this extinction event is escalating rapidly now, the waters of the Earth becoming increasingly contaminated with hydrogen sulfide. That will cause more hydrogen sulfide to diffuse into the air, resulting in more fires and explosions, more animals and people sickening and dying, the Sun looking whiter and hitting the Earth with increasingly deadly levels of UV as the ozone layer dissolves, etc.

Because this extinction event is fueled by bacterial growth rates, this is the type of problem that accelerates at a geometric rate. Things weren't nearly this bad in early 2011 when I became certain about what was happening, though the signs were plentiful enough even then. But just over 4.5 years later and now we're seeing purple ocean waters - that is rapid escalation, and the escalation is only going to be even more rapid and extreme from here on out.

Quote: "While most of the reports are from the North Shore, they are being made from all over the Island, including Grasmere and Dongan Hills."

Quote: "A brief emergency radio transmission described the call as a possible Haz-Mat situation."

Note: Purple ocean water on the West Coast and a foul smell hitting a large coastal area on the East Coast - these are both extremely bad signs. Watch for more incidents like these...
