Event Update For 2017-07-13

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.

2017-07-13 - Unknown odor sickens 30-40 people with sudden flu-like symptoms at health and wellness seminar in Carmel (Indiana):

Quote: "The Carmel Fire Department evacuated several businesses Thursday, after 14 people were sent to the hospital with sudden flu-like symptoms. The call came just before 11 a.m. as a potential hazardous odor in the building, located near 106th and Meridian streets, and within minutes several ambulances and hazmat vehicles were on scene. The department Public Information Officer Tim Griffin told the media that when emergency crews arrived, around 30-40 people were complaining of flu-like symptoms after being in a conference room together since 10 a.m."

Quote: "'Actually, it was a health and wellness seminar,' said Woodward. 'We do this every month.'"

Quote: "'Shortly after it started we had one man fall down and pass out,' he said, 'Right after that we all kind of moved over to this guy, and another guy went down face first.' At that point, Woodward said, he knew it wasn't an isolated medical emergency and he decided to evacuate his employees and call 911."

Note: So at least two people face-planted and dozens of others sickened, and they didn't discover the cause of the odor. Think they'll be able to figure it out when it's an apartment building full of dead people, or a school full of dead children? We'll see...

Quote: "The blaze broke out in the morning on Thursday, scattering ash onto houses over 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) away and blanketing the north and west of the city, ABC reported. By Friday, the fire had grown to the 'size of a sports field' and 'as high as a factory,' Emergency Services Minister James Merlino told reporters."

Quote: "It's the fourth time the recycling plant has caught fire in recent months, according to local media. Earlier fires this year broke out already in February and June. The plant provides services for a dozen local councils and recycles paper, metal, glass and plastic."

2017-07-13 - Spike in blazes at recycling plants has industry concerned:

Note: 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."

2017-07-13 - Man, 28, pulled unconscious from the San Gabriel River, dies shortly later, near Azusa (California):

Quote: "A man swimming in the San Gabriel River died Wednesday when he went under and became unconscious."

Note: So he didn't lose consciousness and die until after he'd doused his head with water. Gotta be careful about that. Put your head in water contaminated by hydrogen sulfide and you're apt to die. And you'll never know which water is contaminated and which isn't, except by submerging your head in it and seeing if you spaz out and/or die. Ergo, unless you're gung-ho about dying then you should submerge your head in water as infrequently as possible, or at least be ready to die anytime you do submerge your head in water...

    Annual greenhouse gas emissions rose more quickly last year than they have in nearly three decades, an increase scientists attributed in part to a strong El NiƱo weather pattern, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported this week.
    The Annual Greenhouse Gas Index also shows that global emissions of greenhouse gases that lead to warming, primarily driven by the burning of fossil fuels and other human activity, increased 40 percent between 1990 and 2016, a significant measure of man’s influence on the climate. [more]

    Long-duration M2.4 solar flare erupts, Earth-directed CME

    Active Region 2665 produced a long-duration solar flare measuring M2.4 at its peak time on July 14, 2017. Today's event lasted for more than 2 hours; it started at 01:07, peaked at 02:09 and ended at 03:24 UTC. The eruption produced a coronal mass ejection (CME) with an Earth-directed component. This region is now moving away from the center of the Earth-facing Sun but could still produce moderate to strong eruptions in the days ahead. [more]


    Levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are accelerating, even though emissions from fossil fuel burning have remained virtually the same over the past few years.
