Event Update For 2016-04-13

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.

2016-04-13 - Rotten-egg 'gas odor' reported again in Porter Ranch (California):

Quote: "There are new complaints of a gas odor in the neighborhood where a huge leak forced thousands from their homes – but officials say they can’t find the cause. The South Coast Air Quality Management District received some 40 complaints Wednesday in the Porter Ranch area. Officials say their air sampling and inspectors at a nearby Southern California Gas Co. storage field haven’t found any source, and the utility says they haven’t found any leak."

Note: So no leaks found and no natural gas detected, so the rotten egg odor isn't coming from that facility and there's no natural gas blowing around. Well then, the rotten egg odor is likely hydrogen sulfide oozing from the ground, blowing in off the ocean (again), or emanating from the Salton Sea (again). What else could it be?

2016-04-13 - Huge 'hot blob' of water spotted in the ocean in the southern hemisphere, 5 times bigger than North American blob:

Quote: "What's going on in the South Pacific? The heat blob is so big that it now dwarves the El NiƱo. The SP hosts by far the largest sea surface anomaly on Earth, comprising 11 million km3 of sea surface that's about 30cm higher than normal (ocean heat). In addition, nearly the same area 'blob' is sporting +2.5C temperature anomalies. That's about 5 times the size of the 'hot blob' off the North American coast last year that spawned record forest fires through the northwest US and Canada."

2016-04-13 - Flowing spring catches fire in the middle of the desert on the border between Iran and Afghanistan:

Note: Well, two rivers have caught fire so far, in China and Australia, and a lake caught fire in India, and now here's a burning spring. With all the methane clathrates dissociating around the planet in the oceans, might we not see the oceans themselves catch fire at some point? That seems entirely possible...

Note: Ow!

2016-04-13 - South Carolina to investigate why half of its school bus fires since 2015 have occurred in Beaufort County:

Quote: "The S.C. Department of Education is assembling a team to investigate why Beaufort County has been the site of half of the state’s school bus fires so far in 2015-2016."

Note: Not too hard to solve this mystery - Beaufort County is right on the coast, and includes Hilton Head Island, Hunting Island, Bluffton, Parris Island, Port Royal, that area. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2016-04-13 - Life now dead in Bellandur Lake (India):

Note: Well, technically oxygen-using life is dead. Anaerobic life is surely still alive in that lake - e.g. the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide and dislike oxygen. They will thrive in that lake. If they get enough methane or biomatter to eat then that lake will become a poison-spewing machine, much like the Salton Sea has already become in California. Also, the lake I mentioned that caught fire in India - this is that lake...

Note: They mention a sign being found - e.g. suicide - but only the authorities mention seeing it. Maybe they put the sign there. Or maybe they just said there was a sign and they expect people to believe them without questioning anything. I'll admit it: I'm not the most trusting person in the world these days. Hydrogen sulfide just leaked from a bathroom at a university the day before, in Lincoln (Nebraska), mentioned in the 2016-04-12 update...

  1. Wow - super post today, Jonny! So much destructive stuff happening, EVERY DAY, that it's a wonder people don't notice. They will eventually - but of course, by then it'll be well down the collapse highway, approaching the abyss.

    Japan earthquake update: Tens of thousands flee in fear of aftershocks and volcanoes

    At least 44,000 people evacuated following 6.4-magnitude quake that killed at least nine

    About 120 aftershocks have been observed since the initial earthquake, more than 15 of which measured 3 or higher on the Japanese intensity scale.

  3. And another quake, M7.1, hits Japan:

    Quote: "The quake on Thursday evening in the same region was of 6.4 magnitude. 'Thursday’s quake might have been a foreshock of this one,' Shinji Toda, a professor at Tohoku University, told national broadcaster NHK."

    Maybe so, or maybe BOTH quakes were foreshocks of something bigger!

    A burning mountain of trash in Mumbai fuels middle-class outcry

    This year, the trash dump caught fire several times, worsening the city’s air quality to “poor” and “very poor” in March. In January, the thick, poisonous smoke blinded residents and left them coughing for days. Schools and malls were shut down. Last month, two of the firefighters working round-the-clock to douse the blaze were taken to the hospital after they fell sick.

    Officials say the fire was set off by methane gas in the trash or started by individuals wanting to recover plastics and metal.
