Quote: "Miami-Dade Fire Rescue were called to the building around noon when they received a report of a strong gas smell. Erika Benitez, a spokeswoman for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, said several people were showing signs of carbon monoxide poisoning. They complained of being lightheaded and dizzy."

Note: The 'strong gas smell' was obviously the hydrogen sulfide, since carbon monoxide is odorless, which is why it's called 'the silent killer'. So why were their pipes leaking either gas? Carbon monoxide is the product of incomplete combustion. Was there an underground fire nearby involving hydrogen sulfide, and not all of it burned off, so they got a mix? Regardless, pretty scary seeing a deadly gas-chamber-quality gas leaking into an office building. Who knows what long-term health effects these people may have...

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:

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 - Hydrogen sulfide kills 1 person, injures 11 more, at residential building in Austin (Texas), blamed on suicide:

Quote: "A man thought to be in his 20s was pronounced dead in a West Campus apartment Wednesday afternoon after a possible exposure to hydrogen sulfide, a poisonous chemical, officials said."

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...

Quote: "A worker, who was unaware of the methane gas accumulation, entered the pool in order to fix a glitch and fainted after inhaling the gas. Four other workers entered the pool to save their coworker, but shared the same fate after being exposed to the gas. Two others who participated in the rescue efforts of the five workers were also poisoned."

Note: I very highly doubt that was methane, or at least it wasn't JUST methane. It was probably hydrogen sulfide. Methane doesn't hit people hard and fast like that whereas hydrogen sulfide is known as a 'knockdown agent' because it can knock you unconscious (or dead) with one breath. Both gases are produced in the same environments, so where you find one, you usually find the other too, so while I don't doubt there was methane involved, I doubt that's what poisoned these people and knocked them out...

Quote: "A farmer has spoken of his shock after he found a newborn goat had the face of a human baby. Ibrahim Basir shared pictures of what people have claimed is a fawn - the mythical fusion of goat and human - after it was born in the village of Felda in southern Malaysia."

Quote: "When I went to check, I was quite shocked but fascinated too as its face, nose, short legs and even the condition of its soft body seemed like that of a human baby, whereas the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat."

Note: Almost certainly a genetic chimera, a blending of two species. I even mentioned goat-human chimeras specifically as a possibility, though I called them by their Roman name, satyrs. This is what evolutionary theory has overlooked - that by some mechanism (my working theory is that viruses are the transport mechanism, which is also how we alter genes and blend species in labs, with retroviruses), genes can leap horizontally from one species to another, to fill holes caused by damage to DNA/RNA. Now that the Sun is blindingly white, we're being hit by more UV, which damages DNA/RNA, so we're seeing more of these chimeras in recent times. This same thing had to have happened in the past too, but much much more rarely, and that's why there are legends of satyrs and minotaurs and bigfeet and lizard-people and whatnot - there's a nugget of truth buried in at least some of those legends...

Note: The horns look more like a ram's horns than a goat's to me, and the face looks sheep-like too, so maybe it's a sheep-human chimera. Looks like this one's lived a fair while, since it takes a while to grow horns like that, and it looks at least as big as a man. Actual sheeple?!

2016-04-27 - Hydrogen sulfide sickening people on and near Hayden Island (Oregon):

Quote: "Federal air monitoring repeatedly detected a poisonous gas on Hayden Island, where residents have complained for months about air pollution so thick they could taste it. Yet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wouldn't answer The Oregonian/OregonLive's request for basic details about the discovery of hydrogen sulfide, a colorless gas that smells like rotten eggs. Nor has the agency informed residents about what it's found."

Quote: "At high levels, hydrogen sulfide can kill a person in a single breath. It poses grave dangers to oil refinery crews and sewer workers. Although it can be smelled at very small levels, high volumes in the air can actually paralyze the olfactory nerve in people's noses, leaving them unable to detect dangerous amounts."

Quote: "Since last summer, Hayden Island residents have told state officials they've been smelling a metallic, chemical odor so strong they've awakened at night with headaches, bloody noses and breathing problems that left some reliant on inhalers."

Quote: "Neighbors say they've been left in the dark about the monitoring results. 'I want answers now,' said Mary Lou Putman, a Hayden Island resident who's frequently complained. 'There's a pattern here of withholding important information from the public,' she said."

Note: Hayden Island is in the middle of the Columbia River, where numerous people have been found dead in recent times...

2016-04-28 - Netherlands colder than normal and hit by wettest April in 15 years:

Note: Look at where that wintery weather is hitting - Iceland is in the ocean in that 'cold blob' caused by cold fresh water pouring into the ocean from Greenland melting, and Britain, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Austria are east of there. That cold blob is disturbing the ocean's heat conveyor belt which brings heat up around the US East coast and transports that heat to Europe. Once that heat conduit is disrupted, cold starts hitting Europe. There's no telling how bad that could get, but parts of Europe that are normally temperate because of that oceanic heat are at the same latitude as Siberia, so even as the world warms and Greenland melts away and spews cold water into the ocean, Europe could do some freezing...

2016-04-29 - Global temperature increase to lower oxygen content of most ocean zones by the 2030s:

Quote: "The worst of these toxin-generating microbes are the hydrogen-sulfide producing bacteria. An ancient organism that is incompatible with oxygen-dependent life. A horror out of deep time that has tended to crop up again and again on the list of usual suspects of major hothouse extinction killers. A likely perpetrator of the big ocean and land die offs during pretty much all global warming based extinctions. An organism that dominated the world’s seas and likely vented its deadly gasses into the airs of the world of the Permian — during the worst die-off Earth has ever seen."

Note: That's already happening; a repeat of the Permian-Triassic extinction event - the Great Dying - is underway now. That's what all those 'dead zones' that have been sprouting up in the oceans are: anoxic (no oxygen) and hypoxic (low oxygen) areas...

2016-04-30 - Ground spews methane and probably hydrogen sulfide at apartments in Princeton (Indiana):

Note: Obviously not JUST methane, else nobody would have smelled anything, since methane is odorless. 'Gas odor' means somebody smelled 'rotten egg' odor. That was probably hydrogen sulfide which spewed from that mine along with methane, since the two gases generally go together. Lucky everyone in that apartment building didn't just keel over dead. Dunno if this has much of anything to do with any earthquake though; sounds like just another event involving gas spewing from the ground, which has been happening with increasing regularity all around the world...
