Breaking: Scores Injured in Massive Taiwan Water Park Explosion

Ed Note: When I saw this story I immediately visited to see if this story was posted and could be related to Earth’s ever increasing methane/hydrogen sulfide expulsion. But unfortunately no stories from June 27th were published yet. Yet, peruing thru the events that took place on June 26th listed under “Fires and Explosions” it’s not hard to surmise Taiwan’s water park explosion was ignited by natural causes.

Yet I find it quite interesting how the fire is barely extinguished and reporters are claiming the explosion was linked to a “white powder”- when there’s absolutely been no time to carry-out an official investigation.

FYI…I’ve been following the above website since 2012. Over the last three years I’ve witnessed an exponential increase in the number of events listed under all categories and from my observations,  this appears to the number one threat to life on earth “as we know it” because isn’t linked to specific areas and regions of the world.

The frozen Methane/Hydrogen Sulfide gaseous glaciers have been part of the earths substrata for millions of years, at this time they’re melting faster at an exponential  rate as ice turns to slush, and slush to liquid gas. Hydrogen Sulfide which is heaviest than H2O, rises to the surface and lays over the surface of low lying areas and waterways, snuffing out every living thing it comes into contact with. Hence, mass fish kills are linked to H2O expulsions in lakebed’s, ocean’s and rivers.  . Methane is lighter than H20 and rises into the atmosphere, which has been suspected of causing mass bird kills, is depleting the Ozone layer and creating climate change feedback loops which are escalating out of control…as humans attempt to mitigate problems created by man, with chemtrails and other geoengineering schemes.

There’s also a concerted effort by “the system” to suppress the earths gaseous expulsion phenomenon. Besides the fact you see very little information or fear mongering on this subject and the writer of the blog and his links have been banned from God Like Productions forum. I’ve also had to re-post several articles under the Earth Changes “Methane Hydrate” category several times over the last couple years.

Obviously officials at the highest levels are aware of these hazardous threats, but it’s difficult to determine if local authorities are aware of this very serious problem…yet.

Whenever an event or explosion occurs officials are quick to give the public a suspected cause, then they move forward with little or no follow-up on the results of the investigation “Keep moving folks, nothing to see here…”. Which begs the question: Are local officials just as unaware as the general public, or is there a concerted effort by civil engineers at the grass roots level to keep this knowledge suppressed to prevent fear and panic, when they should be making the public aware of the dangers and preventative measures which could save lives and property. I seriously doubt news reporters or meteorologists have a clue since they’re given scripts to read and the information they’re exposed to in relation to planetary changes and conditions is highly controlled.

Knowing what we’ve learned about the Wigner Effect caused by radiation leaking from Fukushima which causes metal fatigue and problems with hydraulics (brakes), combined with threats of explosions and also problems with hydraulics presented by the hydrogen sulfide expulsion; the public would be well advised to keep your distance from amusement park rides, water parks and take preventative measures to avoid hazardous conditions. Below are links with basic information on Earths gaseous expulsion phenomenon, what to look for and how you can mitigate the potential problems before they arise.

Vast methane ‘plumes’ seen in Arctic ocean as sea ice retreats

Note: This re-post of an article from 2011 on a massive methane expulsion in the Siberian Arctic is the fourth time I’ve posted this article, because it mysteriously keeps vanishing from the archives…hmmm, pesky little gremlins love keeping people in the dark {wink}! {~A~}


Dramatic and unprecedented plumes of methane – a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide – have been seen bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean by scientists undertaking an extensive survey of the region.

The scale and volume of the methane release has astonished the head of the Russian research team who has been surveying the seabed of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf off northern Russia for nearly 20 years.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, Igor Semiletov of the International Arctic Research Centre at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, who led the 8th joint US-Russia cruise of the East Siberian Arctic seas, said that he has never before witnessed the scale and force of the methane being released from beneath the Arctic seabed.

“Earlier we found torch-like structures like this but they were only tens of metres in diameter. This is the first time that we’ve found continuous, powerful and impressive seeping structures more than 1,000 metres in diameter. It’s amazing,” Dr Semiletov said.

“I was most impressed by the sheer scale and the high density of the plumes.  Over a relatively small area we found more than 100, but over a wider area there should be thousands of them,” he said.

Scientists estimate that there are hundreds of millions of tons of methane gas locked away beneath the Arctic permafrost, which extends from the mainland into the seabed of the relatively shallow sea of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf.

One of the greatest fears is that with the disappearance of the Arctic sea ice in summer, and rapidly rising temperatures across the entire Arctic region, which are already melting the Siberian permafrost, the trapped methane could be suddenly released into the atmosphere leading to rapid and severe climate change.

Dr Semiletov’s team published a study in 2010 estimating that the methane emissions from this region were in the region of 8 million tons a year but the latest expedition suggests this is a significant underestimate of the true scale of the phenomenon.

In late summer, the Russian research vessel Academician Lavrentiev conducted an extensive survey of about 10,000 square miles of sea off the East Siberian coast, in cooperating with the University of Georgia Athens. Scientists deployed four highly sensitive instruments, both seismic and acoustic, to monitor the “fountains” or plumes of methane bubbles rising to the sea surface from beneath the seabed.

“In a very small area, less than 10,000 square miles, we have counted more than 100 fountains, or torch-like structures, bubbling through the water column and injected directly into the atmosphere from the seabed,” Dr Semiletov said.

“We carried out checks at about 115 stationary points and discovered methane fields of a fantastic scale – I think on a scale not seen before. Some of the plumes were a kilometre or more wide and the emissions went directly into the atmosphere – the concentration was a hundred times higher than normal,” he said.

Dr Semiletov released his findings for the first time last week at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. He is now preparing the study for publication in a scientific journal.

The total amount of methane stored beneath the Arctic is calculated to be greater than the overall quantity of carbon locked up in global coal reserves so there is intense interest in the stability of these deposits as the polar region warms at a faster rate than other places on earth.

Natalia Shakhova, a colleague at the International Arctic Research Centre at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, said that the Arctic is becoming a major source of atmospheric methane and the concentrations of the powerful greenhouse gas have risen dramatically since pre-industrial times, largely due to agriculture.

However, with the melting of Arctic sea ice and permafrost, the huge stores of methane that have been locked away underground for many thousands of years might be released over a relatively short period of time, Dr Shakhova said.

“I am concerned about this process, I am really concerned. But no-one can tell the timescale of catastrophic releases. There is a probability of future massive releases might occur within the decadal scale, but to be more accurate about how high that probability is, we just don’t know,” Dr Shakova said.

“Methane released from the Arctic shelf deposits contributes to global increase and the best evidence for that is the higher concentration of atmospheric methane above the Arctic Ocean,” she said.

“The concentration of atmospheric methane increased unto three times in the past two centuries from 0.7 parts per million to 1.7ppm, and in the Arctic to 1.9ppm. That’s a huge increase, between two and three times, and this has never happened in the history of the planet,” she added.

Each methane molecule is about 70 times more potent in terms of trapping heat than a molecule of carbon dioxide. However, because methane it broken down more rapidly in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, scientist calculate that methane is about 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a hundred-year cycle.

Damn I hate being right! I’ve been watching, what I thought to be bubbling in a few different locations in Destin, FL, for the past 2 months. City worker said that it’s not bubbling. Big surprise!!

Please check out this video taken at a different location. It’s on a much smaller scale, highly but looks more like a consistent bubbling in one area.


Arctic Methane Alarm

November 2011

The top image, by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, shows the ice in September 2011, when coverage reached a historic low of 4.24 million square kilometers, as measured by the University of Bremen.

The event took place despite a period of remarkably low Sun activity coinciding with lower temperatures due to a La Niña period.

The graph on the right projects summer ice to melt entirely within years, as early as 2013, with a best guess of 2015.

This is acknowledged by experts incl. Prof. Peter Wadhams, of Cambridge University, and Wieslaw Malowski, of American Naval Postgraduate School.

Ice loss means more sunlight gets absorbed in the sea, instead of being reflected back into space, as one out of several feedbacks accelerating warming in the Arctic.

Sam Carana points at three areas in the Arctic Ocean with profound temperature anomalies, the Beaufort Sea, the Laptev Sea and the Kara Sea (image left). This suggests that methane is being released into the atmosphere from submarine hydrates.

A 2008 paper by Shakova et al. considered release of up to 50 Pg of predicted amount hydrate storage as highly possible for abrupt release at any time. Combined amounts of methane from such hotspots of 15 Pg over a short period would result in an immediate burden of 20 Pg of methane (since there already is about 5 Pg in the atmosphere).

Applying methane’s immediate global warming potential of 120 times that of carbon dioxide would give this 20 Pg of methane an initial greenhouse effect equivalent to over 2400 Pg of carbon dioxide. By comparison, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels rose from 288 ppmv in 1850 to 369.5 ppmv in 2000, for an increase of 81.5 ppmv, or 174 PgC.

What makes things even worse is that this 174 PgC is a global figure, with its impact spread out over the globe, whereas methane from such abrupt releases in the Arctic would – at least initially – be concentrated in the relatively small areas of these hotpots, violently heating up the shallow waters in these areas with the risk of triggering further releases from methane hydrates.

In addition, large releases could cause hydroxyl depletion in the atmosphere, extending the lifetime of methane to decades.

In agreement on the seriousness of this threat, we urge you to tell your Parliamentary Representatives to act as outlined below:



Robert W. Howarth et al. and Drew Shindell use a GWP for methane of 105 for 20 years, and 33 for 100 years. That would imply an even higher immediate GWP than 105.

In its first five years, methane is at least 100 times as potent as carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas (above image below, from a study by Dessus). Extending the above line would give an immediate GWP of about 120 times that of carbon dioxide.

A 2009 study by Drew Shindell found that increases in global methane emissions did cause a 26% hydroxyl decrease. Because of this, methane now persists longer in the atmosphere, before getting transformed into the less potent carbon dioxide.

A Centre for Atmospheric Science study suggests that sea ice loss may amplify permafrost warming, with an ice-free Arctic featuring a decrease in hydroxyl of up to 60% and an increase of tropospheric ozone (another greenhouse gas) of up to 60% over the Arctic. This lack of hydroxyl means that methane will persist in the atmosphere for longer at its high global warming potency.

Similarly, extension of methane’s lifetime further amplifies its greenhouse effect, especially for releases that are two or three times as large as current releases.

The image below is a screenshot from a study by T. Kurten et al.

The graph on the right, based on data by Isaksen et al. (2011), shows how methane’s lifetime extends as more methane is released.

The GWP for methane typically includes indirect effects of tropospheric ozone production and stratospheric water vapor production. The study by Isaksen et al. shows (image below) that a scenario of 7 times current methane (image below, medium light colors) over 50 years would correspond with a radiative forcing of 3.6 W/m-2.

Such an increase in methane would thus add more than double the entire current net anthropogenic warming, effectively tripling the effect of all emissions added by people since the industrial revolution (for comparison, see Wikipedia image below).

An addition of less than 30 Pg of methane would create such a scenario (i.e. of 7x the methane we’re used to having in the atmosphere) and this would extend methane’s lifetime to some 18 years, so such a burden will not go away quickly. The situation is even worse when releases take place abruptly over a short period. A single submarine landslide can release 5 Pg of methane, which can double the methane currently in the atmosphere when this occurs in shallow waters, since such a huge release will saturate the water, so most methane will enter the atmosphere unchanged, to trigger further releases.
This kind of warming in the Arctic could result in ever more methane ending up in the atmosphere and remaining there for a longer period without getting oxidized. Initially, all this methane will be concentrated in the arctic, causing huge amplification of the greenhouse effect there in summer, heating up the sea and causing further depletion of oxygen (as algae start to bloom) and further accelerating the permafrost melt and thus causing further carbon to be released from permafrost and clathrates.
Such dramatic local warming is bound to trigger further melting of permafrost locally, resulting in further releases of methane. Massive amounts of methane are stored in the Arctic, much of it concentrated at high density in hydrates. One liter of hydrate can release up to 164 liters of methane. A rise in temperature could cause abrupt releases of huge amounts of methane from hydrates.

Lagoon In Rio De Janeiro Is So Polluted That Thousands Of Fish Just Floated Up Dead

Here’s the scene in Rio de Janeiro…


This lagoon, called Rodrigo de Freitas, is where the Olympic rowing competitions will be held in 2016.  The fish died after oxygen levels in the water dropped because of pollution, local media said.

Note: Lack of oxygen mostly likely is a result of methane hydrate or hydrogen sulfide release.



Update on Global Hydrogen Sulfide and Methane Gas Release

Note: Forget your grievances with Obama, corporate control, gun control issues and war with Iran, in this editors opinion the biggest issue confronting humanity is the global release of toxic gases that appear to be building up in the environment. As these gases exponentially accumulate they’re creating a VERY long, DAILY list of mysterious fires/explosions, people dropping dead in low lying areas, neurological damage, mass animal and marine die-offs and more.

The list below is just one day of combined events. In my opinion, the only way to protect yourself is by avoiding low lying areas, getting your spiritual house in order, learning how to “protect and shield” yourself with Light energy and paying close attention to your instincts. If that little voice inside tells you to “go the other way”, “get out now” or “move fast”…whatever the prompting may be, don’t think twice ~ follow it.  Also remember, harbor no fear because there is no death and we’re always where we’re supposed to be.

Event Update For 2013-01-10

Link to full hypothesis:

Summary of Hypothesis:
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.

A Huge Natural Gas Line Explosion Just Lit Up West Virginia [PHOTOS]*

Matthew Boesler | Dec. 11, 2012

Reports are coming in of a big explosion in Sissonville, West Virginia (scroll down for photos and video).

Via local news outlet WSAZ:

The northbound lanes of Interstate 77 are closed in the Sissonville area, from Tuppers Creek to Pocatalico due to what’s being called a major gas line explosion.

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper tells crews were called to what was described as a major gas line explosion in Sissonville.

WSAZ says that right now, no injuries or fatalities have been reported. A “Shelter in Place” has been issued for buildings in the area, though.

The AP reports that according to state police, several structures are on fire.

West Virginia Metro News cites Kanahwa County Commissioner Kent Carper:

“The flames are shooting 50, 75 to 100 feet. There’s fire everywhere,” said Carper reporting from the scene on 58-WCHS. “Gas company is on the scene working with emergency officials to get the gas shut off, then we’ll assess if we have injuries or casualties. At this time it’s a fairly chaotic scene.”

“Several structures are involved. The fire is so hot it’s like a blevy. It’s caused houses to melt and burn way far away,” he said. “Many structures are on fire in a large fire area stretching hundreds and hundreds of feet.”

Now, WSAZ reports that the well has been capped.

The Charleston Gazette is reporting that the fire has been put out, and the search for casualties is underway:

Crews apparently extinguished the fire just before 2 p.m. but a large amount of fumes remain in the air, said Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper.

Carper said paramedics and emergency responders are going into homes and apartments now to assess injuries or fatalities.

Bloomberg News (via the Bloomberg terminal) cites West Virginia officials confirming earlier reports, saying the gas line has been shut off, there are still no confirmed injuries or deaths, and a search is underway for victims.

Readers can also follow along via a live audio feed of Kanawha County’s emergency services scanners.


Below are five photos from Twitter. The first was posted by Charleston Gazette reporter Mackenzie Mays, who says the photo comes from Kanawha County Emergency Services:

Local news outlet WOWK posted this sobering video of the flames towering into the air:

And James Hopkins of WOWK just tweeted this photo:

WSAZ reporter Bill Murray tweeted this aerial photo, giving some perspective on the fire:

Now, this photo, which shows the site of the fire since it’s been put out, is making the rounds on Twitter (h/t @LacyNeff):

Total’s North Sea Gas Leak From Space (the Plume from Hell)

So, can anyone tell us how this accident will impact the situation going on in the Siberian Arctic with the large methane fountains they discovered in 2008, which no one appears to be talking about at this time.

Has the Tribulation Started…It appears the evacuated workers were right. this is more gas than was seen in the Total videos of a leaking wellhead, with 4 small pin holes. They may have cracked the sea floor. If so it will destroy the ozone above the arctic vortex, no protection from the increasing solar this the plan?

The 2012 Effect: Mysterious Foam Causing Hog Farms to Explode

Could this be related to the methane hydrate releases that have been continually spewing from tthe Siberian Arctic since at least 2008 when they were discovered by scientists exploring the region, or could it be tied to the piezoelectric fires breaking out around the globe?

“Researchers at the University of Minnesota are trying to unravel a mystery that’s plaguing hog farms.

Over the last few years foam on manure pits has caused barns to explode, killing thousands of hogs, and causing millions of dollars in damage. The foam traps gases like methane and when a spark ignites, it can create an explosion

Researchers at the U are trying to determine how bacteria develops in a manure pit and find a fix for the foam. Pork production is a billion dollar industry in Minnesota.”
