(Los Angeles, CA)—On February 25, satellite imagery detected a huge pulse of carbon monoxide and other gases over California, extending up into Canada.  The news, though not reported by mainstream reporters, was shared extensively on social media. (Screengrab via YouTube)

Robert Scribbler, climate change journalist, reported this on his website:

"On February 25, The Global Forecast System model recorded an intense and wide-ranging carbon monoxide (CO) spike over the US West Coast. A region stretching from British Columbia, through Washington and Oregon, and on over most of California experienced CO readings ranging from about 5,000 parts per billion over the mountains of Southwestern Canada to as high as 40,000 parts per billion over Southern California. Very high peak readings appear to have occurred from Northern California near Eureka and the southern edge of the Cascadia Subduction Zone and along a line south and eastward over much of Central California to an extreme peak zone just north and west of Los Angeles near Palmdale along the San Andreas Fault Line." 

The news has many west coast residents rattled and preparing for a disaster.


One geophysicist, Ramesh Singh, has speculated that such events could be a precursor to an earthquake. His theory was cited in the journal NatureAsia.

It read: "Earth emits a burst of carbon monoxide (CO) a few days before an earthquake, according to geophysicist Ramesh Singh. He and co-workers from France and the United States report that this gas could be used as one of the precursor signals for an earthquake early warning system." 

While it is hoped that any earthquake that might come as a result of this pulse is minor, resulting in no deaths or serious injuries, if Singh's theory holds true, mankind will have gained an invaluable tool for predicting future earthquakes.BCN
