2018 - MAR - Other Stories

2018-03-01 - Unknown rotten egg odor sickens dozens of girls at school in Houston (Texas):

Quote: "Students have been sickened by fumes that prompted an evacuation at their school. Houston Fire Department declared a 'mass casualty incident' after students fell ill at the Young Women's Preparatory Academy in the 1900 block of Cleburne. The principal initially called 911 to report a gas leak after five students reported feeling sick. The school was evacuated and HFD tested the air, but found no gas leak."

Quote: "According to HFD, more than 50 students were taken to various hospitals as a precaution. Some reported headaches, feeling weak, nausea and vomiting, and in some cases, anxiety or asthma attacks."

Quote: "Students started to panic after seeing their friends faint. 'I saw a girl pass out,' said one student. 'I was freaking out.'"

Quote: "As for what caused the putrid rotten egg smell, officials are stumped!"

Note: Apparently 'the authorities' are trying to blame this on roof tar work being done on a roof somewhere in the area. *cough*bullshit*cough* That's obviously not the cause, since they initially reported that they thought this was a gas leak, which means a rotten egg odor, and roof tar work doesn't cause rotten egg odors, nor does it sicken dozens of people in a nearby building. If roof tar work was that dangerous then you'd see roof workers regularly collapsing as they work, or they'd be wearing respirators and hazmat suits to do roofing work, and neither of those is the case. Also, I didn't see anything in the story about the roof workers collapsing or sickening and if that was the cause then obviously they'd have been the very first to sicken. What happens when it's not just 50 sick girls but 50 DEAD girls? Will they still try to blame roof tar? We'll find out! Houston isn't right ON the coast, but the Houston Ship Channel runs to the coast and Houston is pretty near the coast. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2018-03-01 - Unknown gas odor evacuates high school in Crestview (Ohio):

Quote: "Crestview students were released a few minutes early after a strong gas odor developed at the high school on Thursday afternoon. Superintendent Matthew Manley said about three to five minutes before students were scheduled to leave, there was a strong gas odor in an area of the building where there is not a gas line present. The students were asked to quickly exit the building and parents were notified with a one call from Manley."

Quote: "While the cause is not entirely known, Manley said it is believed the gas odor was coming into the building through the air ducts from somewhere outside the building."

Note: So a rotten egg odor that was blowing by in the atmosphere outside got sucked into the school by the HVAC system. That's probably what happened to that school in Houston too, but the gas was more concentrated in the Houston incident...

Quote: "About 50 people jammed Goleta City Hall on Wednesday night in search of solutions to one of the city’s foulest problems: noxious odors that smell like rotten eggs. Every so often, Goleta residents, mostly in the western part of the city, smell the stinky odor of hydrogen sulfide. It reminds people of rotten eggs and can permeate the air for miles. And unlike a mysterious fog that one can see looming over the city like a scene out of a 1950s B-movie, hydrogen sulfide is invisible and no one quite knows when it is going to be present, or for how long it will stay."

Note: Having meetings (Goleta) or forming investigative committees (Huntington Beach) isn't going to solve the problem. The problem is that both cities are on the downwind edge of the landfill formerly known as the Pacific Ocean. They're not gonna be solving that problem...

2018-03-11 - Research suggests volcanic eruptions ignited coal and the consequences caused the Great Dying:

Quote: "Previous research has shown that the Permian mass extinction event didn’t coincide with the start of the Siberian volcanic eruptions and lava flows, but rather 300,000 years later. That’s when the lava began to inject as sheets of magma underground, where Burger’s data suggests it ignited coal deposits. The coal ignition triggered the series of events that led to Earth’s worst mass extinction. Its sulfur emissions created the acid rain that killed forests. Its carbon emissions acidified the oceans and warmed the planet, killing most marine life. The dead bodies fed bacteria that produced toxic hydrogen sulfide gas, which in turn killed off more species. The warming of the oceans produced a large methane release, which accelerated global warming faster yet."

Note: Notice the latter two sentences - hydrogen sulfide and methane. That's what did most of the killing - poison and fire, and eventually anoxia, deadly levels of UV and widespread biosphere collapse. The same thing is happening now, but instead of volcanic eruptions burning vast amounts of coal, oil and gas in the Siberian Traps, it's human beings burning up similarly vast amounts of coal, oil and gas from anywhere and everywhere that we have found it, all over the planet. But the Earth doesn't care WHY the coal/oil/gas burns or WHO does the burning - the Earth reacts WHEN the coal/oil/gas burns. We're also burning it much faster than the volcanoes did 250 million years ago, so the current extinction event may very well prove to be even worse than the Great Dying, maybe significantly worse. Obviously we won't be around to see that though, since the human race will be gone looooong before things reach the apex of horror. Still, we're seeing what the Great Dying looked like at the beginning stages, right here and now. In 30 million years everything should be back to normal, more or less, minus most species alive today, including ours, but with many new species that will arise as the current extinction event eventually fades across the eons to come. By the time the next intelligent species appears, what's left of the human race will be part of the coal and oil that they find and burn, if they're as stupid as we are...

2018-03-13 - 'Odor committee' on hold in coastal Huntington Beach (California):

Quote: "The Coastal Area Odors Ad Hoc Committee will be on hold while the Mayor and Council Members hold meetings with federal officials and local members of Congress. Rest assured, progress is being made to identify the source and the South Coast Air Quality Management District is in the midst of an active investigation. Upon completion of the investigation and meetings the Ad Hoc Committee will resume meetings."

Note: Huntington Beach formed this committee to investigate why their city is being hit by hydrogen sulfide, mentioned in the 2017-10-02 update. Now the investigative committee is on hold while they hold some meetings with feds and Congressional members, after which the committee will resume their meetings. Yeah, well, holding meetings isn't going to solve the problem. In fact, nothing is going to solve the problem, but I guess having some meetings before they get back to having other meetings gives them something to do. Maybe they should have a meeting to discuss whether they should schedule a meeting to determine whether meetings actually do anything!
