Event Update For 2015-07-30

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.

2015-07-30 - Underground electrical explosion and fire hits coastal Long Beach (California), blackouts ensue:

Quote: "A fire in an underground electrical vault has knocked out power to thousands of people in downtown Long Beach, just two weeks after a series of similar fires left people in the same area in the dark for three days. Long Beach Fire Department spokesman Jake Heflin says Thursday's outage struck a few minutes before 5 p.m."

Quote: "An underground vault explosion triggered a power outage in downtown Long Beach Thursday afternoon for the second time this month, police said. Residents reported hearing a loud explosion near 10th Street and Pine Avenue at 4:15 p.m."

Note: Long Beach had barely recovered from the last underground fire, which put numerous people in the dark for days, mentioned in the 2015-07-15 update, and here's yet another one. And another underground fire just hit coastal Manhattan too, mentioned in the 2015-07-29 update and also on that day, an underground explosion and fireball shattered a thick steel manhole cover, blew it into chunks, in Sacramento (California). This problem can strike anywhere and at any time now, so keep some flashlights handy!

The officials said they were 'baffled' by the fact that two carcasses were found at almost the same spot and added this has to be investigated."

Note: Wouldn't be so sure that was 'natural causes'. Did they do a hydrogen sulfide test? No, they didn't, because there isn't one, and such deaths will look just like the creature's heart stopped, and they call that 'natural causes'. Same with many of the people dropping dead, including children and young healthy people. These tigers were both found dead by fishermen so they were both near a body of water of some kind. A recent story said there were only 100 tigers left alive in the Sunderbans, so now, a week later, I guess they're down to 98. At this rate there will be no tigers left alive in the Sunderbans in less than a year...

    Killing Heat — It Felt Like 165 Degrees in Iran Today

    [Iran not having a good week]

    In Iran it was 115 degrees Fahrenheit today (46 C). Add in humidity and the heat index was a stunning 165 F (74 C). But what they really should be concerned about is the wet bulb reading…

    A Limit to Human Heat Endurance

    Thirty five degrees Celsius. According to recent research, it’s the wet bulb temperature at which the human body is rendered physically unable to cool itself in the shade. At which evaporation not longer cools the skin. A temperature that results in hyperthermia, heat exhaustion and heat stroke — even when sitting still and out of direct sunlight over the course of about 1-3 hours. Basically, it’s the physical limits of human heat endurance. [lots more]

I once thought about seeing a psychiatrist, for depression, but then I realized that if I was walking down the street and I found $100 laying on the sidewalk, that'd make me happy, so I just kept the $100 that I would've spent on the psychiatrist! Heh, I think that was some comedian's stand-up joke there.
