Event Update For 2015-05-15

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.

2015-05-15 - HazMat event, 13 people sickened by sweet odor at post office in Hamilton Township (New Jersey):

Quote: "The incident occurred around 9:50 a.m. when a male postal worker began feeling sick, according to Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede. Other employees also reported symptoms of being dizzy and nauseous and the building was evacuated. The male had passed out briefly, according to Township Health Officer Jeff Plunkett. The offending odor that was believed to have sickened the postal workers was described as a sweet-smell, similar to that of being in a pancake house."

Note: Some people say that hydrogen sulfide has a sweet, flowery or sickeningly sweet odor at medium-high concentrations. This not being a sewer facility or an oil facility, they likely did not check for the presence of hydrogen sulfide. I've smelled hydrogen sulfide at high enough concentrations for it to smell sweet twice, once while a man was pumping a porta-potty into an open sewer manhole and once in the wee hours while walking down the street. The day after that second event, the Edward Jones Dome was evacuated due to a noxious odor that originated from OUTSIDE, mentioned in the 2014-04-11 update. If you smell a sweet or sickeningly sweet or flowery smell and there's no discernible reason for it then you may be getting gassed...
