Event Update For 2014-08-19

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.

2014-08-19 - Great Pacific Garbage Patch continues growing, now visible from California:

Quote: "An environmental hazard, the patch is growing in the ocean between Hawaii and California. Those who have seen it referred to it as an 'enormous floating landfill.' Captain Charles Moore and his team of scientists from the Algalita Marine Research Institute have been researching the patch for two months. He first discovered it in 1997. They say the garbage has already had an impact on the sealife around it, such as fish with enlarged and discolored livers."

Note: Yeah, a GIGANTIC LANDFILL just upwind from California. What do landfills emit? Hydrogen sulfide. Lots of people mysteriously dying in California in recent years. As the oceans become more 'landfill-like', most life on Earth will die, as has happened in the past. California is downwind of this garbage patch. Actually, the entire planet is downwind of this garbage patch. If a town-sized landfill could force Roxbury (New Jersey) to consider evacuating the town (mentioned in the 2013-06-14 update) then a landfill the size of this one in the Pacific Ocean will ultimately cause the evacuation of the surface of the Earth, either voluntarily by creating survivable habitats and relocating, or involuntarily with people dying, whichever we choose...

2014-08-19 - Deadly explosion and fire destroy home and minivan in Rocky Mount (North Carolina), 2 killed:

Quote: "Firefighters were called to the 1700 block of Springfield Road around 9:49 p.m. Monday after flames were seen sweeping through the man's home, and engulfing a minivan outside."

Quote: "The man's wife, Monzell Fasegha, said her husband Frederick Fasegha was a paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. He and her great-grandson, Isaiah Crews, were home alone when the power went out in a storm. A short time later, neighbors said they heard some kind of explosion."

Quote: "The family said they believe the blaze began outside and spread to the house..."

Note: I bet that minivan ignited some passing methane and/or hydrogen sulfide. The explosion might have been from the gas plume, or maybe it was the minivan exploding. Fires that start outdoors are very dangerous because indoor smoke detectors may not sound the alarm until escape routes have been cut off by the fire...

2014-08-19 - Home explodes into flame before 2 AM, fire spreads to adjacent home, in Corvallis (Oregon):

2014-08-19 - At least 5 classic cars and 30 motorcycles destroyed by fire while parked at business in Gadsden (Alabama):

Quote: "There were at least 30 Harley Davidsons, a 1929 fire truck, a 1930s fully-restored Model A Street Rod, a 1962 Corvair, a 1970s CJ5 military Jeep and an Austin Healey taxi cab that still had its meter."

2014-08-19 - Apartments under construction hit by mysterious fire at 4:37 AM in Salt Lake City (Utah):

Quote: "Salt Lake City fire investigators had a mystery in their hands Tuesday: What caused a portion of an under-construction apartment complex to ignite?"

Quote: "The fire started in the first floor level of the three-level complex on the southeast corner of 300 East and 500 South, which also has a subfloor parking area. The structure itself, still largely cement, sustained no damage with the flames consuming PVC pipe, fittings and some wood pallets."

Note: Pallets - tada, mystery solved, even if they don't know it yet. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel, like the nails/screws/staples that hold pallets together. So a little gas blows by, some sparking breaks out near a rusty nail or whatever, a spark lands on the pallet wood (or anything else combustible that's nearby), and you have a fire. Lots of pallet companies have gone up in flames in the last couple of years, and there have been many other fires where pallets have been mentioned...

2014-08-19 - Boat bursts into flame just before 6 AM while parked at home in Mt. Juliet (Tennessee):

Quote: "The owner said the boat's battery was taken out two years ago and it had no electricity. Fire officials on the scene told News 2 there was no ignition source and they are looking into possible arson."

Note: I bet that boat had some rusty iron/steel in it somewhere, like the battery mounting brackets or something like that. Just because fire officials are ignorant of the problem doesn't make the problem go away, it just means the taxpayers are paying the salaries of ignorant fire officials...

2014-08-19 - Passenger bus bursts into flame in the port city of Yantai (China), 1 killed, 19 injured:

Quote: "The blaze is at least the fifth bus fire this year in China. Several public attacks in recent years, including bus arson and hackings, have been blamed on people who are mentally unstable or who are seeking revenge against society."

Note: Well, they have to come up with something other than the truth to sell people - that's how China rolls with their propaganda division. It's very odd that it's just in the last couple of years that buses started burning up in China, at the same time buses started bursting into flame at a higher rate everywhere on the planet. Can't blame all the buses burning OUTSIDE of China on dissatisfied Chinese people. So, I think I'm just gonna ignore China's propaganda division's stories. Let's watch and see what other stories they come up with as buses continue to ignite and incinerate their people, which is definitely going to happen, though it will certainly happen more in coastal cities like this one. Oh, and all those mysterious empty cities in China, where are they located? About as far from the coasts as possible, that's where. That is no coincidence...

They should provide a discount to attend this college, seeing as the odds that you'll drop dead here are going to be going steadily up. A college education isn't worth a whole lot if you're dead...

2014-08-19 - Maryland State Police trooper, man, found naked in bar in Jarrettsville, near coastal Baltimore (Maryland):

Quote: "The incident is the most recent in a spate involving naked people around the country."

Quote: "Elsewhere in the United States, there appears to be an uptick in crimes committed by nude people, according to media reports. Police arrested a screaming naked man with a 4-foot sword outside a housing complex Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida, according to several news reports. In Northern California, an impaired man crashed his truck Sunday and promptly got out of the vehicle and disrobed, California Highway Patrol said."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic and is affecting peoples' neurologies (their brains), which is causing all kinds of bizarre and irrational behavior. It also makes at least some people heat up, so they strip naked to cool off, even in the depths of winter. As the atmospheric contamination intensifies, there will be more of this; it's already obviously escalating. I see why law enforcement had 'anti-zombie' training in California a year or two ago: we can't let insane, violent and often naked people just rampage around hurting other people whose brains are still at least semi-functional...

2014-08-19 - Snow in the Arctic has thinned by 50 percent:


  1. Ya know Jonny, if all the methane/H2S pluming off the oceans somehow mixes with all the lethal radiation still spewing from Fukushima, what kind of toxic mess will that make? i'm wondering why errant lightening doesn't set off a huge fireball.


    1. And don't forget whatever it is they're spraying up there mixed in too, plus whatever derivative chemicals might arise from all the other chemicals mixing together, including the atmospheric ozone and carbon dioxide and hydrogen and nitrogen, and carbon monoxide from all the fires. Who knows, man! But I wouldn't be surprised to see more of that weird chemical-smelling unburnable 'snow' this winter again. I wouldn't be too awfully surprised if it's radioactive too, at least from time to time.

      I'm not so sure that lightning ISN'T igniting gas and causing explosions. Some of the storms this last year, the 'thunder' has sounded suspiciously like 'explosions'. Easy to just blame lightning and thunder for ANY loud bang and flash of light, but maybe that's not always the case anymore, or maybe it's not JUST thunder and lightning that we're encountering sometimes now. Home gets flattened - 'storm damage'. Maybe so, but maybe not always. And lightning is being blamed for a LOT of fires nowadays. What's in the rain in these storms? Flammable water, like the methane-infused tapwater people have been experiencing here and there in recent years? Anyone checking? There sure is a lot of methane going into the atmosphere now and it's water-soluble. Things to ponder.

  2. Nice analysis, and I agree. The government isn't checking for radiation (in the air or in the water from what I've read; they may test fish, but then they just raise the "acceptable" limits) - it's all done by bloggers and private concerns and never sees the mainstream media!

    As far as I know you're the only one checking on methane and hydrogen sulfide here in the U.S. by exposing evidence with a clear explanation in your full statement. Why fire officials haven't discovered this yet is beyond comprehension - unless they DO know and are just using every other excuse in the book so as not to panic the herd.

    I think the powers that be know something is about to happen - something big that will cause widespread panic and supply chain disruption, throwing the entire economy into chaos. They're also probably powerless to do anything about "it."
