2016-03-02 - Hydrogen sulfide causing problems in Shiloh (Illinois):

Quote: "Hydrogen sulfide is being blamed for Shiloh’s wastewater to smell like rotten eggs, Village Engineer Norm Etling said on Tuesday."

Quote: "'The hydrogen sulfide reading in the wet well of the Archview lift station was between 5 and 6 ppm. When we proceeded to the manhole on Eden Park Boulevard where the force main from Archview lift station discharges, the hydrogen sulfide readings spiked to over 100 ppm and rose to as high as 150, which are far above the safe level,' Peek wrote in a letter to Etling dated Jan. 18, 2016."

2016-03-02 - Unknown odor sickens 23 students at elementary school in coastal South Amboy (New Jersey):

Quote: "23 students were taken to a New Jersey hospital to be checked out Wednesday following an unknown odor in a classroom. The children were from the third-grade at an elementary school in South Amboy. Two classrooms were complaining of nose, eyes and throats burning."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2016-03-02 - Two men go out on boat, go missing, on the Tennessee River near Florence (Alabama):

2016-03-02 - Volcano Fuego erupts in Guatemala, spews ash over vast area:

Quote: "The volcano sent ash plumes billowing more than 2,000 meters above the crater; they then spread as far as 40 kilometers to the west, southwest and north, the spokesman said."

2016-03-02 - Volcano Tungurahua erupts in Ecuador, belches ash and lava:

Note: MISA Theory keeps on chuggin' away...

2016-03-02 - February was warmest month ever recorded:

Quote: "Using unofficial data and adjusting for different base-line temperatures, it appears that February 2016 was likely somewhere between 1.15 and 1.4 degrees warmer than the long-term average, and about 0.2 degrees above last month—good enough for the most above-average month ever measured."

2016-03-02 - Arctic ice fracturing and ready to flow out of the Arctic:

Quote: "The Laptev Sea Ice is fracturing. This is one of the most dangerous places in the Arctic. Vast amounts of methane hydrates are on the ocean floor here. There are also reservoirs of free methane here stored under high pressure."

2016-03-02 - Mystery deepens around Greenland 'Cold Spot', could indicate slowing of the Gulf Stream:

Quote: "Meanwhile evidence is mounting that the long-feared circulation decline is already well underway."

Note: And the heat that that current would normally bring to Europe - where is that heat going? Backing up along the East Coast? Multiple nuclear plants have had to shut down in recent years on the US East Coast because the OCEAN was too warm to cool them. If that becomes 'normal', then either the East Coast will go dark from lack of electricity as all the nuclear plants are shut down, or the East Coast will end up glowing in the dark from melted-down nuclear plants...

2016-03-03 - Van bursts into flame while parked at home in Chesterfield (Virginia):

Quote: "Olson was present at the scene, and he said he believed a possible cause of the blaze was from a son-in-law's travel-trailer parked in the building."

Note: Here are more parked vehicles going up in flames, and these weren't all of the parked vehicles that spontaneously ignited on this day either. Because more vehicles are bursting into flame generally, and because most vehicles spend most of their time parked, this means more parked vehicles are igniting. People are losing their homes, businesses and sometimes their lives because of this problem, and the problem is escalating. Park a vehicle next to something you don't want to see on fire at your own risk...

Note: This is the 22nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2016...

2016-03-05 - Passenger plane hit by smoke, aborts takeoff, in Fort Wayne (Indiana):

Quote: "The plane, with 153 passengers and a crew of six, returned to the gate after pilots were alerted to a mechanical issue and reports of smoke in the cabin."

Quote: "The blaze, which has been contained, started Saturday at the hydrogen desulphurization unit of the plant in Pasadena, Texas..."

Note: That's the part of the refinery that removes hydrogen sulfide from oil/gas and 'desours' it...

2016-03-05 - Car bursts into flame while parked at home at 3:45 AM, fire spreads to three large multi-family homes, in New Britain (Connecticut), 33 people homeless:

Quote: "Residents and fire officials said the fire appears to have started in a car parked in the alley in back of the houses at 166 and 170 Broad St. and to the side of 44 Gold St. which were all gutted by the three-alarm blaze."

Note: Crazy people parking vehicles near where they live. Ah well, they lived, this time, so they can go buy all new stuff. Good for the economy! The worst (non-fatal) car fire so far, that I can recall off-hand anyway, was a parked car that burst into flame at 6 AM at an apartment building in coastal Bridgeport (Connecticut), resulting in a massive inferno that destroyed the entire apartment building and left 120 people homeless, mentioned in the 2015-12-31 update. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...

Note: A car just burst into flame at 3:45 AM while parked at a home, and that fire spread to three large multi-family homes and rendered 33 people homeless in New Britain (Connecticut) the day prior too, mentioned in the 2016-03-05 update...

Quote: "A standoff with a naked woman dancing on top of a big rig finally ended Monday morning when police and firefighters took her into custody.

2016-03-07 - Naked man jogs down street, tries to get into church, keeps on going, in coastal Sliema on the island of Malta:

Note: Notice the location of these events: near the Gulf of Mexico, near the Umatilla River, near a causeway near the coast, in a coastal city, and in a coastal city on an island. That's no coincidence, but people in non-coastal areas are affected sometimes too, since gas does blow onward with the wind. You're just MORE likely to go insane or drop dead in or near coastal areas, but you're not safe anywhere...

However, Crescenti said, none of them was in a 'serious' condition. Today at around 9 am a train engine of the San Martín line on its route to the Retiro station caught fire for reasons that are still unclear."

2016-03-09 - Woman, 48, killed when car bursts into flame in Palmdale (California):

Quote: "'For unknown reasons the vehicle became engulfed in flames,' the CHP report states. 'The driver...was unable to exit the vehicle and was later determined to be deceased.'"

Note: Why couldn't she exit the vehicle? Already dead? Unconscious? Spazzing out from a seizure? Locks and windows weren't working? Probably one or more of those possibilities...

2016-03-11 - Passenger train hit by fire at 1 AM, bathroom burns, between Burnham and Slough (Britain):

2016-03-11 - Passenger train bursts into flame en route to Bhubaneswar (India):

Note: This is the second time I've seen three trains having fire problems on the same day. The first time was last fall, mentioned in the 2015-09-06 update and all three of those train fires involved freight trains. Train fires are definitely on the rise now. It just took them a little longer to get going compared to the boat and truck and car fires...

The fire appears to have started in one of the vehicles and then spread..."

Quote: "Toronto fire says it appears that the fire started in a garbage truck or pickup truck — then spread through the building and the roof."

Note: So this was yet another multi-million-dollar fire caused by a parked vehicle bursting into flame. Think they'll wake up before Toronto is completely destroyed? Wouldn't bet money on it, but hey, we'll find out!

2016-03-15 - Recycling center hit by fire, compactor bursts into flame, on Hoath Way in Gillingham (Britain), near the coast:

2016-03-15 - Four people found burned to death in home in coastal Dehiwala on the island of Sri Lanka:

Quote: "Police suspect that the individuals have died following an electrocution. They added that the bodies were found in different places in the ground floor of the house."

Note: If they were all together then electrocution would be more plausible - one person touching another and so on - but scattered around the house? Not very believable. Renal problems - e.g. kidney problems - have been mysteriously killing many people in Sri Lanka too, mentioned in the 2015-01-18 update. From the full hypothesis: "Renal problems - e.g. problems with kidneys - will escalate, as is already happening with crop workers on the western coast of Central America."

2016-03-15 - Man burns to death in bank parking lot in Cedar Park (Texas):

2016-03-16 - Hydrogen sulfide spewing from lagoon(s) in West Fargo (North Dakota):

Quote: "'It doesn't smell so much because it's covered but once that ice melts off that hydrogen sulfide is let into the atmosphere,' explained Terry Rust, Wastewater Lab Coordinator with the West Fargo Sanitation Department."

2016-03-16 - Children and bus driver sickened by unknown cause on school bus in Charlotte (North Carolina):

Quote: "Officials initially thought the gas was leaking into a school bus, causing students to feel sick. After testing two buses, no carbon monoxide was found inside the buses."

Note: So they found no carbon monoxide anywhere. Low-level hydrogen sulfide poisoning causes similar or identical symptoms and that won't show up on CO detectors. Also, if the hydrogen sulfide has adsorbed onto matter - like, say, bus seats - then even an H2S detector won't detect it, since it's not floating around in the air. Anytime you touch anything now, you're betting your life that it's not contaminated. Lose that bet enough times and you end up dead...

2016-03-16 - Within a few hours, man, 79 sickens, and man, 75, has respiratory failure, on same cruise ship near coastal Toulouse (France):

Quote: "At 8:13 p.m., the CROSS Corsen was notified by the 'Braemar' that another passenger, a British national of 75 years was suffering from respiratory failure."

2016-03-16 - Man goes missing while kayaking on Lake Michigan near Port Washington (Wisconsin):

2016-03-17 - 'Rotten egg' odor blowing ashore from the ocean in Southern California:

Note: The water turned pink last fall at a bird refuge in coastal Santa Barbara, caused by bacteria that eat hydrogen sulfide and which only exist in water where hydrogen sulfide is present, mentioned in the 2015-09-22 update. And the oceans are warming and filling up with dead creatures, and the ancient archaea and bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide love heat and dead stuff, so the Pacific Ocean is rapidly becoming more 'landfill-like', so the ocean spewing poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas is not unexpected. This is going to get worse, much much worse...

2016-03-17 - High levels of methane found in the ground at Department of Public Works facility in Ferndale (Michigan):

2016-03-17 - Unknown HazMat incident occurs in coastal Cranston (Rhode Island):

2016-03-18 - Passenger plane comes down on fire at 3:50 AM, crashes and explodes, in Rostov-on-Don (Russia), near the coast, all 61 or 62 aboard killed:

Note: All vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parked or driven, so park a vehicle near anything you don't want to see on fire at your own risk. And sometimes vehicles are igniting with people inside them and killing the people too, so it seems prudent nowadays to keep something handy with which to break windows and cut seatbelts, in case your vehicle ignites with you in it, which sometimes disables power locks and windows and can leave you trapped in a burning vehicle, and that's almost always fatal...
