Event Update For 2014-07-23

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: "A scientist on the Oden has blogged about the seabed methane emissions saturating the water column and entering the atmosphere - terming it a 'megaflare.' Ulf Hedman, Science Coordinator, Swedish Polar Research Secretariat comments: 'We see the bubbles on video from the camera mounted on the CTD or the Multicorer. All analysis tells the signs. We are in a Mega flare. We see it in the water column we read it above the surface an we follow it up high into the sky with radars and lasers. We see it mixed in the air and carried away with the winds.'"

2014-07-23 - Woman and man, 77 and 79, both die in swimming pool at home in coastal Thorpe Bay, Southend-on-Sea, Essex (Britain):

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble, so it blows in off the ocean, dissolves into pool water. Then you go swimming and die, as this woman did. The man jumped in to save her and he died too. If the son had been there and he'd jumped in, he might've died too, though at age 49 his heart is probably stronger and he might have lived. Numerous people, sometimes multiple people, have been found dead in pools, saunas, showers, hot tubs, bathtubs, etc, not to mention at beaches, lakes, ponds, seas, quays, bays, marinas, rivers, streams, near docks, while diving or snorkeling, on boats and ships. Ten people had contact with water and died recently, and eight more lost consciousness, in Dera Ismail Khan (Pakistan), mentioned in the 2014-05-02 update. It's probably wise at this point to simply assume that water is contaminated and potentially lethal and avoid it. Or you can bet your life that the water is fine, but the consequence if you lose that bet is obviously not gonna be good. It's your life so you're the one to make that call...

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is being absorbed by tire rubber and brake pads. Then when brakes are applied, an unusual amount of heat is generated, since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot. Then bad things can happen: tires explode or ignite, brakes burn out or ignite, fluid lines rupture, the entire vehicle goes up in flames, or all of the above. This problem mainly affects massive vehicles - like dump trucks - but no vehicle is immune. The dump truck was probably braking as it approached the bridge over the river here, generating heat and that's why the tire blew...

  1. Isn't it amazing that the lede article illustrates the existence and travel of these deadly gases, the next bunch of articles are largely about BOATS (you know, ON the water) bursting into flames, followed by an enormous amount of vehicles, infrastructure and buildings going up in smoke (on land, from the coast inward, where the gases blow over). My imagination just follows the path. The concentration keeps increasing, though monitoring is not deemed important enough - just like with Fukushima radiation, these gases are somewhat cumulative!

    ah te yu wot: yo BED lights up b'neat ya, you BETTA run lak a mo-fa!

    Center City Philly is in the news at least every week with something "unusual" (like we've said, this is the new normal). Hotel fires, cars, people dying around the rivers, manhole covers blowing off, infrastructure and vehicle fires, it just goes on and on!

    I like the fact that at least one city (Allentown) is testing for gases and or flow patterns. What bothers me is the lack of SHARING the information with the public, even though our tax dollars are paying for it all! We'll never hear this stuff because they have no response for any of it - it can't be prevented, reliably predicted (location and/or concentration level), or avoided! But if they told people that the sewers at the end of their street were leaking CH4 and or H2S at least they could make the determination on whether to move temporarily or permanently. With no information, we're sitting ducks!

    Sinkholes are really becoming a problem. i'm sure you saw the article about the ground erupting and then collapsing into a big sinkhole in FL recently.

    Insurance companies are either going bankrupt or they aren't honoring their contracts.


    1. Yeah, some honesty would help. Then we could have some forecasting, like, 'Clouds of deadly hydrogen sulfide will be blowing through tonight in the St. Louis area, so close those windows and doors and hunker down, people!' Or, we've got some H2S sewer leakage along Main Street, so avoid this area until repair next week is complete. Or whatever. Lacking info, we ARE sitting ducks! I guess all you can do is assume the worst, which sucks because there will be days where things are actually at least pseudo-okay.

  2. The radiation people have already set up an entire on-line network of people who went out and bought Geiger counters and other equipment to measure and monitor the levels over the past few years and it seems to be growing. Other than that, there's no mention on the mainstream news.

    Here's yesterday all over the US (note the LACK of stations in certain places and the surprising readings from "far from Fuk"):

    What equipment would a fella need to measure methane and/or H2S?


    1. Well, I dunno about methane. Methane doesn't seem like the biggest worry. It's lighter than air, so it's not apt to hang around at mouth level and kill you, and it's not all that deadly or anything anyway. It'll exacerbate fires and explosions though.

      Now, hydrogen sulfide - they DO sell H2S detectors. I bought one, probably thinking the same as you: hey, it'd be nice if I had an alert system of any kind at all. Alas, they are no big solution.

      Problem number one: they have to be recharged with expensive cartridges. Mine was every six months, and the cartridges were a significant percentage of the entire initial cost of the detector itself, so it's like a subscription plan. For businesses or industry, the primary users, I guess that's okay, but for the common man, it's expensive.

      Secondly, let's say your detector goes WHEE and you look down and it shows 1200 ppm, what's your next step gonna be? It's gonna be to die. The detector means you'll die with a beeping gadget instead of without a beeping gadget, and that's about it. But it could beep and register 300 ppm or something, and then you ought to get into your protected atmosphere environment immediately and wait until the gas has blown by. Oh, don't have a protected atmosphere environment? Well, that's unfortunate, cuz 300 ppm will rot your brain over time and damage your organs, put you on dialysis for the rest of your life, stuff like that.

      But the worst problem is the adsorption problem. The H2S will cling to matter, so materials will get a little molecular film on the surfaces of matter, some types of matter (porous) being the worst. Your detector won't pick that up at all, since it's not gas in the air, but gas kinda smeared onto stuff. If you laid some lead acetate onto contaminated material, it'd probably change color. And any kind of matter might get contaminated at any time - like late at night - but then you touch it the next day, get sick, maybe die.

      Likewise, the water contamination problem. Your H2S detector won't pick up whether water is or isn't contaminated.

      The stuff adsorbed into/onto matter - the lead acetate idea is the only thing I can think of to have much chance of detecting that, but which matter is or isn't contaminated will probably change daily. And lead acetate is itself toxic, so you can't just surround yourself with it. So, I guess you'd take a chunk of cardboard or rubber that you suspect, seal it inside a bottle, and send it to a lab. But then, can you trust the labs? Who owns/runs/controls them?

      All-in-all, no easy answers. I'm not saying not to get a detector. But there are definitely some huge limitations on how useful they might be. Lead acetate isn't super expensive and though it won't really tell you much about how BAD contaminated matter is contaminated, it might at least tell you IF something is contaminated.

      It's probably just safest to assume the entire environment is contaminated. If it isn't yet, it will be eventually.

  3. As this event accelerates in general, will there be mainstream attention in an objective voice to patterns of accumulated gases? The Allentown experiment seems to suggest that municipalities are ready to start being realistic with this situation.

    1. You got me! The smoke testing, infrastructure upgrades, the subway tests in NYC and London - looks like 'they' are at least trying to mitigate the problems, so that's something at least.

      At some point the people are gonna wake up though. How could it be otherwise? And then what? My guess would be....war. Not war against other people, but a war for survival, but in all other respects, it'll probably be a lot like any other war: the enemy hitting us with its own unique weapons, disrupting our food/water resources and supply lines, killing our people, and us fighting back as best we can, etc. There might be a draft. Government might get huge, as it did in WWII. Money won't be the end-all be-all of existence. The 'markets' aren't as important as survival. There might have to be a new monetary system instituted, because they've been borrowing huge against a future that doesn't exist (which is rather brilliant if you think about it). There might have to be rationing, because food production may drop dramatically. War-time stuff, that's what I see coming, because it IS a war.

  4. Here's a MSM link for that too:

    Wouldn't have looked for that if you hadn't mentioned it though. And WOW, that's just insane-looking! And strange smell in the air too? Yeah, I don't think I'd be going anywhere near that water. That's just a little too apocalyptic-looking for me!
