Event Update For 2014-10-31

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.

2014-10-31 - Underground fire spews sulfur-smelling smoke, the ground moves, in Harrogate (Britain):

Quote: "Firefighters were called to the grass verge on Otley Road yesterday morning after a member of the public said he had seen the 'ground moving and smoke shooting out 6ft into the air'. The member of the public also reported that there was a strong smell of sulphur from the ground before members of the fire brigade arrived on the scene shortly after 11am. Fire crews confirmed that the 'ground did appear to be moving' before contacting North Yorkshire Police and cordoning off the area."

Wiki: "Harrogate is a spa town in North Yorkshire, England. Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the town is a tourist destination and its visitor attractions include its spa waters and RHS Harlow Carr gardens."

Note: They say underground electrical fire. They use a lot of sulfur in the electrical power industry? Nooooo. Could be some hydrogen sulfide, which is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, did ignite an underground electrical fire, and that's what caused the sulfur smell. Otherwise, what could it have been? In any case, if there's ANY kind of fire these days and you smell sulfur, you might want to GTFO...

2014-10-31 - Underground electrical explosion rocks Waltham (Massachusetts), near the coast, blackouts ensue:

Note: They'll be blaming the underground explosions and fires on salt from salt trucks soon, completely forgetting that the underground explosions and fires have been happening whether there's snow or rain or anything else or not...

2014-10-31 - Underground propane tank explodes and burns in Seeley Lake (Montana), 2 injured:

Note: Gas leak, but they don't know what the ignition source was. Quite possibly the work of the Ghostly Match here, though since nobody is checking the air or ground for hydrogen sulfide or methane, they'll never be able to definitively determine the cause. Looks just like the other gas pipelines that have been exploding and burning except this time there just happened to be a couple guys nearby trying to fix the leak...

2014-10-31 - Apartment building explodes, roof blown off, in Walnut Creek (California), some injured:

Quote: "Fire officials said the explosion and fire has caused multiple injuries. The explosion blew the roof off the apartment complex. Fire officials said six ambulances and one medical helicopter initially responded to the scene."

2014-10-31 - Water heater explodes at home in Albion (Indiana), 1 killed:

2014-10-31 - McDonald's hit by explosion and fire in La Joya (Texas), near La Joya Lake, 1 injured:

Quote: "We have breaking news this evening as we just received word of an explosion at a McDonald’s restaurant in La Joya. We’ve been told by Sergeant Johnny Hernandez that one subject has been burned, and they’re waiting for a helicopter to transport the victim to hospital."

2014-10-31 - French state radio building, Maison de la Radio, damaged by major fire in Paris (France):

Quote: "In a sign of the building's national importance, President Francois Hollande interrupted a news conference with Turkish President Recep Erdogan to address the incident. 'The damage appears considerable,' Hollande said, calling the fire 'a great shock.'"

2014-10-31 - 100 vehicles, vehicle storage facility and furniture factory destroyed by fire in coastal West Coast Demerara (Guayana):

Quote: "He said that by the time he arrived at the facility, there was little that could be done to save the vehicles in the yard. It was noted that there were approximately 100 vehicles in the compound at the time of the blaze and the businessman was not sure whether they were insured."

Quote: "Reports are that the fire started around 12:30 pm in one of the vehicles..."

2014-10-31 - Methane collection facility damaged by fire at 5:30 AM at shuttered landfill in coastal Newport Coast (California):,0,448386.story

2014-10-31 - Recycling center hit by large fire, building destroyed, in Parlier (California):

Quote: "Investigators are trying to figure out what sparked a large fire at a recycling center in Parlier. The fire started Friday morning on Fresno Street and Newmark Avenue. It began behind a fenced area, quickly spread and destroyed a building."

2014-10-31 - SpaceShipTwo passenger rocket explodes north of Los Angeles (California), 1 killed, 1 injured:

Quote: "The Virgin Galactic spaceship exploded after separating from WhiteKnightToo, which carries it to 50,000 feet before its release."

Quote: "Friday's accident was the second space-related explosion this week. On Tuesday, an unmanned commercial supply rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded moments after liftoff from a launch site in Virginia. No injuries were reported that accident, which drew criticism over NASA's growing reliance on private U.S. companies in this post-shuttle era."

Note: Maybe NASA is having private companies doing launches because they know about the atmospheric problem and what that means for rockets and planes, e.g. all the burning/exploding/crashing. Privatize the catastrophes!

2014-10-31 - Houseboat bursts into flame on Ewing Street in coastal Seattle (Washington):

2014-10-31 - Home damaged by fire shortly after 4 AM in coastal Bridgeport (Connecticut), 1 injured:

Note: Watch the East Coast. As that 2.5 gigaton methane clathrate deposit continues to release its stored methane, the East Coast is highly likely to be destroyed by fires and explosions. Looks inevitable. That's probably why responders just trained to deal with a 10-kiloton explosion in coastal New York City, mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update. Europe won't do too well either, when that gas blows eastward. It's odorless and invisible, so nobody will see it or smell it, and nobody's checking for it, but people will certainly see the fires and explosions...

  1. I thought I sent this to you yesterday or the day before, but I don't see it, so I probably forgot. Well, here it is:

    Study faults insurance industry’s response to climate change

    Extreme weather across the country the past several years has taken a toll on homeowners and communities, and on insurers.

    After superstorm Sandy roared across the northeastern United States two years ago, many homeowners on Long Island — even those who escaped the worst damage — lost their property insurance. The same thing happened in coastal Virginia after Hurricane Katrina, which hit hundreds of miles away along the Gulf Coast.

    Today, from Florida to Delaware, property insurance near the water is becoming harder and harder to find.

    “In the long run, these coverage retreats transfer growing risks to public institutions and local populations, and reduce the resiliency of communities, which are less able to finance post-disaster recoveries,” according to a new report from Boston-based Ceres, a nonprofit group dedicated to sustainable business practices.

    Last year, less than a third of the $116 billion in worldwide losses from weather-related disasters was covered by insurance, according to data from the reinsurer Swiss Re. In 2005, the year Katrina struck New Orleans, insurance picked up 45 percent of the bill.

    The Ceres report said higher global temperatures from climate change are to blame for rising sea levels and more extreme weather events, including Sandy, which caused more than $29 billion in insured losses, including $292 million in Ohio.

    Columbus-based Nationwide said it had insured losses of more than $400 million from the storm; State Auto recorded $7.3 million in losses.

    Given recent trends, the report criticizes insurers for not doing enough to prepare for the escalating risk from climate change. [there's more]


    1. Naw, was my oversight, sorry! My brain gets a bit overloaded with stuff when the month clicks over. It sounds like the insurance companies are sort of 'preparing' though - it's getting harder to get property insurance on the East Coast!
