Two days’ ago, Dutchsinse posted up a whole, long video showing how more unexplained wildfires are breaking out within the volcanic fields of a whole bunch of the volcanos in Western USA.
The day after he posted that up on Youtube, Youtube pulled his livestream channel and blocked him.
Why did Youtube do that?
That is the question.
In the meantime, you can see that particular video above, here, and it’s shmirat eynayim friendly (as much as anything can be, considering the ads on Youtube).
Here’s a few things to toss into the mix about what may be really going on, with all the record wildfires happening across California, plus a few other Western states.
Firstly, the whole area is literally covered in volcanoes.
Some of them – 167 – are marked as officially ‘live’ by the authorities (including the Long Valley caldera, which was just raised up to ‘live’ supervolcano status when they discovered 240 sq miles of melted magma, beneath its surface).
But there are literally thousands, nay, hundreds of thousands of volcanic cones and vents and also a bunch of related geo-thermal features like hot springs, geysers and mudpots, all over the Western part of the USA.
And while many of them are officially being ignored, and being marked ‘dormant’, or even dead, here’s the thing:
Even ‘dead’ and dormant volcanic fields continue to degas a whole bunch of gases and vapors into the atmosphere from the ground.
To put this another way, volcanoes don't have to be actively erupting, or actively doing anything much, to still be pumping a huge amount of diffuse CO2 and other greenhouse gases out into the atmosphere.
There’s a bunch of science to prove that, but perhaps the most simple way of proving it is this: geothermal pumping operations are going after oil, and gas extraction, and super-heated steam to turn turbines.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of geothermal ‘wells’ now drilled into huge swathes of land in the US (and also in places like New Zealand, which is also very volcanically active). Most if not all of these operations are occurring on the flanks of 'dead' and 'dormant' volcanoes (although in Hawaii, they also drilled down into the flanks of the ever-erupting Kilauea...)
And the gas they are extracting – what they actually call ‘shale gas’, or ‘natural gas’ – is mostly made up of methane.
And methane is highly flammable.
As the magma is moving below the crust – and all the earthquakes and volcanoes popping off around the whole Pacific ‘ring of fire’ right now show that magma is on the move across the globe, and is coming closer to the surface – then the volcanic gases associated with the magma will start to rise up, and degas in increasing quantities through the earth’s crust.
And everyone knows, that a single spark can ignite an explosion, or a fire, if there’s gas anywhere near it.
And the amount of gas being stored in volcanic shale, and in other of these deep rock formations, is mind-boggling – we’re literally talking about many trillions of cubic metres of methane.
How do you know this is true?
Well, why else would the fracking companies would go to such lengths to drill wells many thousands of feet down into rock, if there wasn’t some serious amounts of gas to extract and sell?
And now, that gas is coming closer to the surface, and igniting fires all over the Western US, in the volcanic fields associated with a whole bunch of volcanoes, many of which are either not even listed, or are listed as being dormant or ‘dead’.
If you’re bored and you’d like to learn a little more about US volcanoes, go and look up Mount Shasta. It last exploded around 1797 – very recent times. And it’s the USGS’s #1 volcanic risk for the US, that no-one even really talks about.
Here's what the USGS has to say about it - and it's a masterpiece of double-speak! You have to read it very carefully to understand that Mount Shasta is currently a huge eruption risk, because it's barely erupted the last few hundred years, and even the USGS admits some massive eruption is due 'every 6-800 years'.
I.e., round around now.
Now, read THIS article on how 2 of North California's volcanoes are currently listed as 'very high' threat levels by none other than the USGS, and one of them is Mount Shasta.
Shasta county was devastated by the wildfires raging a couple of months’ back.
Do you think that’s a coincidence?
Now, can you start to figure out why Youtube is trying to close down Dutchsinse?
After I'd written this, I came across a news story from a couple of weeks' ago, about a hole in the ground in Arkansas, that's been 'spewing fire' for the last month or so. You can see the full story HERE, but here's some of the key points:
While methane is being fingered as a culprit for the fire, no-one can figure out where the methane is coming from, because it's ALL NATURAL, and is coming up from volcanic gas degassing at the site. But the authorities are only exploring 'man-made' gas leaks, vis:
"Gas company Black Hills Energy, which was asked to help inspect the site, confirmed it didn't find any utility or fuel lines leaking in the area.
The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality also examined several underground fuel storage tanks in Midway to ensure they were sealed.
"Based on ADEQ inspections it does not appear that any of these tanks contributed to the fire," the agency said in a statement to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette."
But I think it's kind of proving the point: more and more volcanic gas is rising to the surface, and causing 'wildfires', and methane is a the main culprit.
