On August 27, 2014, I published my first and only book, Fever Rising. It was a book about a theory I presented here at ATS in December of 2012 about
dangerous gases, methane and hydrogen sulfide, causing all kinds of headaches for mankind. Throughout the book I use quotes from ATS members and use
information that I discovered here at ATS. I approached management of ATS for permission to use the quotes and for permission to write a thread about
the release of the book. Now, what I'd like to do is publish the pages of my book on ATS in a series of threads discussing each chapter. I'm not doing
this to try to sell you books. I don't care about that, I just feel the message is very important and I'd like to get it out there in the ATS
community because if it weren't for ATS, the book would never have been written in the first place.
Below are the first two chapters of the book, beginning with Chapter 1: The Clintonville Booms and concluding with Chapter 2: Global Incidents on the
Rise. It was the mystery of the Clintonville Booms that led me to ATS in 2012 and ever since, I've never looked back. I'm sure many of you know what
I'm talking about. ATS can be addicting.
Throughout the publishing of these chapters, some are very long and may need to be edited down lengthwise to accommodate a forum such as this. When I
do edit them down, I'll let you know and I'll make sure to publish the most important details of that chapter. I wish I wouldn't have to that but
Fever Rising is a lengthy book at 480 pages and 130,000 words.
The reason I think this will be pretty cool is that all the chapters in the book stand alone. They could be an article by themselves and that's why I
think it's a cool idea to publish by the chapters. The chapters either discuss the different parts of the theory, such as how either methane or
hydrogen sulfide are related to atmospheric heating, or the chapters discuss each of the different effects that IMO, of course, are caused by a
There is tons of information in the book from nearly two years of research, and more importantly to the ATS community, two years of some very good
discussion on my many threads I've authored here. I hope the ATS management will allow me to print these chapters for you, each topic is assured to
stir up some debate and even if it doesn't, it will provide you all with some very important information in regards to the escalating levels of
atmospheric methane and hydrogen sulfide gases.
Also, I'll wait between each posting of chapters to allow some time for discussion. So, without further ado, let's begin with these first two
Chapter 1: The Clintonville Booms
The day I first leapt into the rabbit hole was March 19, 2012. It was the day I saw the news reports about Clintonville, WI, a town of 4,500 people
only an hour away from where I lived with my family. The report stated that over 400 residents heard loud house-rattling booms about 3:00 am.
One witness described the boom as “shaking his house” and “it was like a shock.” He got out of bed, went outside and saw that all of his
neighbors were waking up too, as their lights were ‘popping on.’
But it was the next day that really got my attention. The booms that happened the previous night from 3:00 am until almost daybreak, around 5:00 am,
had started up again the next night at the same times.
The Clintonville city administrator said that the boom came without warning. “It’s just ‘bam,’” Lisa Kuss told the media. “I would
describe it as startling, an adrenalin rush. Your heart is instantaneously kind of racing because you are not expecting it.”
How strange! Two nights in a row around the same times with hundreds of witnesses and authorities had no idea what was causing the house-rattling
Here were the facts: The USGS said no earthquakes. The city said it wasn’t any busted pipes, or city water pressure or well troubles. There were no
gas leaks or gas in the sewers (so the city said). The city also said there were no large construction projects or mining in the area either, but,
interestingly enough, there just happened to be portable traveling arrays that record seismic activity set up near Clintonville. It was “by fluke”
that these portable detectors were there in the first place, but they recorded a 1.5 micro-quake in the area, so the story goes. Of course, it was day
four before the residents were told that it was a quake. They hired an expert to come in and tell them, “Yep, you experienced a quake.” It was
also day four when the booms finally quieted down.
Kuss reported to an auditorium filled with 250 residents that the mystery was solved. “We have experienced an earthquake here in Clintonville,”
Residents questioned her claim. It just so happened that at first an earthquake was ruled out but then they were told that a portable detector just
happened to be in the area and yes, you did have an earthquake.
The residents then proceeded to ask why they had heard such loud booms, which weren’t characteristic of earthquakes.
“The soil and granite under the city is different than that of most earthquake-prone towns and may account for the sharp noises,” Kuss said. She
told the residents that geophysicists believed it was a swarm of micro-quakes responsible for the booms.
Things eventually quieted down just as the engineering firm came into town and set up monitors. Either way, it was said that an earthquake to hit
this area, no matter what size, was an once-in-a-lifetime event. Some residents even came forward and said they had heard these rumblings for several
months prior to the busy evening on Sunday night.
Evidently, a seismic station was set up near Clintonville and recorded unusual ground shaking over those four nights.
A geophysicist reported on March 21, the day before Kuss spoke to the residents, that, “Such activity can be caused by quarrying, mining and heavy
truck traffic, but since the city ruled out those sources (there are no mines or major construction in the area), the university and the Wisconsin
Geological and Natural History Survey will likely take a closer look at the station’s data.”
Note how this report was prior to the expert’s claim of an earthquake. It had been ruled out, but yet they found some activity that could be caused
by quarrying or mining. An area landfill and military operations were ruled out. A nearby dam was checked and ruled out and there were no industrial
businesses in the area.
The absence of the booms lingered until they were reported over several nights the following week. During this time they had four seismometers set up.
What did they get? A 0.1 size quake registered on March 30. A truck driving by could cause a .1 tremor.
Another geophysicist from the U.S. Geological Survey, John Bellini, came out after this quake and said that the Clintonville booms are a swarm of
small earthquakes and that they are not unusual across the nation, can last up to a few months and can be sporadic.
And that’s where the Clintonville story ends.
