Event Update For 2014-07-09

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.

Quote: "Employees at The Farmhouse, located two blocks west, said they saw a lot of yellow smoke. 'I felt like we were going to blow up,' said Nicole Ammer of City Market Coffee House who said she heard a popping noise and ran outside to shoot video on her cell phone. 'There was billowing smoke coming out of the manhole, it was billowing like it was water. It was weird, my pipes were shaking.'"

Note: Kansas City is located at the confluence of the Kansas River and the Missouri River...

2014-07-09 - Landfill burns for 7 weeks in Iqaluit (Canada), fire chief comes up with $4.5 million plan to put it out:

Quote: "The total cost of the operation would be at least $4.5 million. 'That's not factoring all that can happen,' Grandmaison said. If the fire's not out in 50 days, the cost could increase by another $1 million every 11 days, Iqlauit's chief municipal administrator, John Hussey, said."

Note: So the plan is, scoop out the burning trash and sludge, soak it in sea water, then place it into a new pile. What will they say after doing all of that when the NEW pile bursts into flame? Stay tuned!

2014-07-09 - Recycling center damaged by fire in Orlando (Florida):

2014-07-09 - Former recycling center burns in Hobart, near Green Bay (Wisconsin):

Quote: "A fire shut down Mason street in both directions at Haven Place in Hobart Wednesday evening. Multiple departments responded to the blaze at the former One Source Recycling Center."

Callers to the BBC reported hearing a 'loud explosion' and seeing 'large plumes of smoke' over the Cumberland Basin just after 16:00 BST. Other eye witnesses reported pieces of debris landing in a nearby park. The driver told the BBC the lorry was carrying 46 pallets of Yankee candles and was heading for Italy."

Note: Wax on, wax off...

2014-07-09 - Car bursts into flame in the wee hours while parked at home, fire spreads to home, in Roswell (New Mexico):

Quote: "Fire investigators believe this may have been set by a serial arsonist. They say this car fire shares a number of similarities to other car fires they've seen. 15 of them in Roswell alone, in just the past eight months."

Note: They still haven't noticed that this is happening all over the planet?! Their brains must've been hit by dumb rays from the local alien population. And of course these fires appear random, because gas blowing through in the atmosphere is random. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and people and animals sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...

Quote: "The fire destroyed a fence and a steel railing used to store the lumber."

Quote: "Haunz said the fire appeared suspicious because no accidental factors that could be identified."

Note: Steel means rust and hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rust. So some rust sparks, lands on something flammable nearby, like, say, a PILE OF LUMBER, and you have a fire. Basically the same as all the pallet fires, except this fire had some steel railing instead of rusty nails or screws...

2014-07-09 - Railway trestle bridge burns in huge fire near the Oak Street Bridge in coastal Vancouver (Canada):

Note: A railway trestle bridge just burned in St. Paul (Minnesota) too, mentioned in the 2014-06-29 update. Trestles are made of wood and steel so they're vulnerable to the atmospheric contamination problem. An irrigation trestle just burned the day prior, near Selah (Washington), mentioned in the 2014-07-08 update...

2014-07-09 - Pier bursts into flame before 6 AM next to coastal Langley Air Force Base (Virginia):,0,164786.story

Quote: "The Hampton Division of Fire & Rescue battled a pier fire adjacent to the Langley Air Force Base Wednesday morning. Dispatchers were notified of the blaze on the Southwest Branch of Back River shortly before 6 a.m."

Fire officials say all electrical, mechanical and natural causes have been eliminated — but fire officials say the cause of the fire remains undetermined."

Note: They haven't ruled out hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rust or electrified copper, so they're not being truthful there, as they haven't ruled out all accidental/natural causes - they just THINK they have. I bet there was a rusty grill, or an outdoor light or light switch or doorbell or something on that porch, or some of the nails used to construct the porch were rusty, something like that. Milwaukee is located on the shore of Lake Michigan...

Note: FOBADS, Falling Off Boat And Dying Syndrome. I'm surprised they haven't come up with an acronym yet, what with all the people being found dead with empty ghost boats nearby these days...

2014-07-09 - Firefighter collapses and dies on trail near Brainard Lake in Boulder County (Colorado):

Quote: "A firefighter who helped rescue an injured hiker in western Boulder County is dead after collapsing on the trail. The Indian Peaks Fire Department firefighter was one of several people from different agencies who treated and evacuated a hiker who had a broken ankle near Brainard Lake on Wednesday afternoon. After a helicopter arrived to pick up the hiker, the unidentified firefighter collapsed while descending the trail.

Quote: "Hydrogen sulfide is being carried into Múlakvísl and travelers are asked not to stop by the river because of dangerous gases, reports."

Quote: "Earthquakes have been more frequent recently under the volcano recently. Most of them were small (below mag. 3) and shallow events. It is unknown whether these relate to magmatic movements inside the volcano, increased hydrothermal activity or are adjustments of the ice cap due to increased melting. The government has declared 'Uncertainty level' for Katla volcano yesterday. The largest hazard comes in the form of melt-water floods and sulfurous volcanic gasses dissolved in and released from glacial rivers."

2014-07-09 - Toxic blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) outbreaks hit three ponds in Suffolk County (New York):


  1. Geez Louise, Jonny - PA all over this report! That million-dollar home in Radnor is in the rich section of the township. I've driven by it many times - all stone, slate roof - it looked invincible. Guess not. Paradise Twp. is about 30 min. from me.

    What's amazing in a lot of these incidents is that they occur by "innocent" bodies of water that have been there for as long as people can remember, but nobody suspects anything! How can water hurt us when it's the basis of life? Well, folks - things have changed.

    Did you see that the upper part of the East Coast of the U.S. is gonna dip into "cool" weather this coming week due to the ol' Polar Vortex revisiting us from last winter (it just won't go away)! People are beginning to notice the signs that all is not well in LaLa Land. Meanwhile the media either ignores or just shows the conflagrations as news items, but never revisits them to explain why they are happening. People are so distracted (and blinded by normalcy bias) that they don't realize that the whole world is in big trouble. They will soon.

    I saw that article (you mentioned in yesterdays comment section about the melting road in Yellowstone) over on Dutchsinse's site and was gonna post it here, but you got it.

    How about this one:

    Storms will wreak havoc in the Arctic with probability of Methane Hydrates being released abruptly.

    [early quote]

    Arctic News warns that "the current decline in sea ice extent is much steeper than it used to be for this time of the year, raising the specter of sea ice hitting an absolute record low later this year. Moreover, a total collapse of sea ice may occur if storms continue to develop that push the remaining ice out of the Arctic Ocean into the Atlantic Ocean."


    All this combines into a growing threat that hydrates contained in sediments will destabilize and that huge quantities of methane will be released abruptly from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean.

    This is the very scenario that the husband and wife research team of Shakhova and Semiletov warned about a while back - it could abruptly cause massive world-wide calamity and is itself an(other) extinction event.

    Meanwhile over on NBL, Guy's Climate Change Summary and Update is being revised more and more often with emerging feedbacks, which number close to 40 now, and each of them could cause extinction by themselves (so all of them combined means . . . .holy SHIT)!

    I think the crapola is going to hit the fan right around 2020 - world governments becoming non-functioning, the global economy tanking and people's lives becoming seriously shortened. Just my opinion.

    All the best Jonny! i'll post any articles I see you might be interested in.


    1. Yeah, normalcy bias is just waaaaay more powerful than I had ever imagined it could be!

      I had seen the story/stories about the new 'polar vortex' coming through, might even bring 70s to my area. Which actually sounds nice, except that these big changes are never nice for the creatures that existed before things started changing, because everything was optimized for things the way they were. Still, I'll enjoy the temps - beats the six straight days of 105+ we had here in STL in 2012 I think it was! That wasn't normal either. Wild fluctuations.

      The slow progression of the methane hydrates melting in the Arctic already looks plenty fearsome enough. I can't really imagine what would happen if it all released suddenly. I guess humanity's hourglass would abruptly run out of sand entirely.

  2. Uh oh! Remember those recent stories about the Bayou Corne sinkhole being started by quakes caused by explosive gas events or something along those lines. If the methane hydrates are destabilizing close to shore on the East Coast there, then the same thing may be happening there. Just imagine the land rumbling and crumbling right under a nuclear plant!
