ET Technology & Dolphin Die Off Mystery


Wow! Linda Moulton-Howe brings forth intriguing testimony from a former military truck driver who witnessed direct energy weapons testing in Somalia. Also audio statements from Ted Connor, a homeland security insider an ancient race of Light Beings from the “Oltissis” civilization – a consciousness that honors all life – from a limited edition book “Ancient Greek Gods and Lore Revisited”; this book on Greek Mythology was subsequently confiscated by Homeland Security in the name of Homeland Security. Why would the gov’t consider a book on Greek myth classified material?!?

Linda covers dramatic and compelling information on direct weapons technology, along with information on the deliberate cover-up of devastating Dolphin die-off in Peru in the 10,000’s in Peru linked to acoustical trauma consistent from what appears to be  Navy sonar testing, oil company operations or undersea explosions from volcanic seismic activity; although forensic evidence points to the fact internal injuries appear to be consistent with sonar activity from military testing or seismic exploration by oil companies.

Also “The Man Who Plants Trees” on the urgent matter of why the oldest “Methuselah” trees and their forests all over the world are in a state of collapse and what you can do to help offset the imbalance.

Published on Feb 16, 2013

Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe discussed ET artifacts & dragonfly drone technology, a dolphin die-off in Peru, and the crisis of trees dying all over the planet.

In March 2012, she learned from “Ted Connors,” (a Homeland Security subcontractor in Montgomery, Alabama who witnessed a dragonfly-shaped drone in 2007– see previous recap) that a new subatomic science called Attotechnology had been linked to the Palo Alto CARET project’s back-engineering of ET technologies. Over two segments, she interviewed “Sam Jones” who served in the U.S. Army in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993-1994, and was witness to an astonishing weapon test that was described as “Atto.” Jones described a kind of directed energy weapon that could blow a hole in cement from 10 miles away, and was said to be capable of shooting a target “through the Earth.” She also played an audio statement from Connors, who’d been visited by NSA and Homeland Security, over his interest in an obscure book that mentioned “Oltissis.” He believes the govt. agents are concerned because the “Oltissians” may plan to return to our planet.

Since January 2012 and ongoing into May, an estimated 1,000 to 3,000 dolphins and some porpoises have washed up dead on beaches off of Peru, for 100 miles. Linda spoke with dolphin documentary filmmaker, and director of BlueVoice.org, Hardy Jones, who learned that there is forensic evidence that the inner ear bones of the dolphins and porpoises have been broken. That means acoustical shock from loud explosive sounds under the water. Further, the internal organs show bleeding and other signs of too-rapid-rise to the surface, indicating that the air-breathing marine mammals panicked deep down and rushed to the surface for air, causing damage to their lungs and internal organs. While the deaths may be associated with seismic exploration done by oil companies, the Peruvian government has been reluctant to name or investigate oil and gas, fishing, military or other commercial interests that might be responsible. More here.

In her last report, she interviewed Jim Robbins, author of The Man Who Planted Trees, which chronicles the efforts of Michigan tree farmer David Milarch, who has used tissue culture and grafting, cloning 52 of 827 living giant trees with the idea those trees were tough enough to survive centuries of different climates and a variety of disease and insect attacks. From Canada to Colorado, trees in the high country have been dying out at an ever-increasing rate. Robbins suggested that a hotter, drier climate in the area had increased insect populations that were damaging or killing old trees.

Animal Behavior, Methane Poisoning, Dead or Alive and on the move


By Starr DiGiacomo on January 23, 2013

This phenomena has been explained by the Zetas and is thoroughly documented on this blog.

While the “official” cause of such massive fish kills is often attributed to hypoxia (lack of oxygen), what is conveniently excluded in these opaque explanations is that high concentrations of dissolved methane essentially expels oxygen, thus rendering water and air uninhabitable for the fish and birds encountering it.

“Dead fish and birds falling from the sky are being reported worldwide, suddenly. This is not a local affair, obviously. Dead birds have been reported in Sweden and N America, and dead fish in N America, Brazil, and New Zealand. Methane is known to cause bird dead, and as methane rises when released during Earth shifting, will float upward through the flocks of birds above. But can this be the cause of dead fish? If birds are more sensitive than humans to methane release, fish are likewise sensitive to changes in the water, as anyone with an aquarium will attest. Those schools of fish caught in rising methane bubbles during sifting of rock layers beneath them will inevitably be affected. Fish cannot, for instance, hold their breath until the emergency passes! Nor do birds have such a mechanism.” ZetaTalk

Honey bees are in trouble



Dear Reader,

“Unacceptable.”

That’s what a new European study calls clothianidin, a widespread pesticide that has been contributing to the massive die-off of our honeybees.1

This new study by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) may be just the thing we need to convince the EPA to finally ban this dangerous pesticide!

Even though honey bee populations have been shrinking at an alarming rate of roughly 30% per year since 2006, the EPA has refused to take immediate action to ban the usage of clothianidin.

But this new study makes it even harder for the EPA to justify its flimsily supported stance.

Ask the EPA to finally call it quits on clothianidin before it’s too late for our bees, our farmers and our food supply.

The EPA says it wants to delay action until it completes its own review of the safety of clothianidin… in 2018. But we can’t wait that long.

Honey bees are vital to our ecosystem and play a crucial role in the cultivation of a third of our food supply here in the U.S.

These new, scientific findings from the EFSA could give us a real chance to convince the EPA to take action before 2018, when it will likely be too late for honey bees.

Urge the EPA to ban the dangerous pesticide clothianidin NOW to prevent further collapse of honey bee colonies across the country.

While there have been numerous independent studies showing that neonicotinoid pesticides like clothianidin are highly toxic to honey bees, the EPA has refused to listen. Instead, they approved the pesticide in 2010 on the basis of a single study conducted by the German corporation Bayer CropScience, the very same corporation that produces clothianidin.

This new EFSA study has also identified Bayer’s study as shoddy and unreliable in proving clothianidin’s safety. This follows on the heels of leaked EPA documents showing that agency scientists who reviewed Bayer’s study have also determined that their evidence was unsound and should not have been the basis of the approval of the pesticide.

Regretfully, clothianidin has been used on corn, our country’s biggest crop source, since 2003. We can’t afford to wait one minute longer while our honey bees continue to die, let alone five more years!

Tell the EPA to follow the scientific findings of the EFSA and ban the use of clothianidin before it’s too late.

Thanks for all your help to protect our honey bees.

MASS BIRD DIE-OFF: Mysterious Gel Brings Death To Hundreds Of Sea Birds Off Jurassic Coast – Experts Unable To Find Source, Takes A Fortnight To Clean Each Bird, Could Spread Along The Food Chain, “Disaster Is Going To Be Far Worse Than We Can Imagine”?!


Andre Heath

February 08, 2013 – UNITED KINGDOM – The Razorbill did not stand a chance. Its wings were coated in a thick gloopy gel, which solidified in the cold. Its feathers lost their use as insulation, leaving the bird’s body exposed to the sub-zero temperatures and biting winds.  Washed up on the beach, it lay on the pebbles in a sorrowful heap.  Several hundred dead birds have been washed up along the south coast of England since the first were found on Wednesday morning.  On Saturday night, an RSPCA treatment centre in West Hatch, near Taunton, was caring for 254 of them. The birds, mainly guillemots and razorbills, were all tarred with the mysterious white-yellow gel. No one knew where this slick came from.  “It’s quite sinister really,” said Teresa Donohue, 22, a volunteer with a wildlife charity. “We don’t know what it is, and you can’t smell it or see it spreading.”

Several hundred dead birds have been washed up along the south coast of England Photo: APEX.

Yesterday, Miss Donohue, who helps put identification rings on birds, was walking along Chesil Beach when she saw a guillemot stranded just above the tide line.  “You never normally see these birds sitting on the beach, but it was exhausted. I had a tea towel and put it over its head, then carried it up the beach to the RSPCA.”  John Pollock, the RSPCA inspector for West Dorset, was waiting with his van. “In 22 years working here, I’ve never seen anything like this,” he said. “It’s officially described as a mineral oil, but that could mean anything man made. It just makes me really angry that this could happen.  “What we are seeing is only a tiny fraction of the true damage, as the vast majority of the affected wildlife will simply die out at sea.” Dead birds have been found all along the coast from Sussex through Dorset and into Devon. Contaminated guillemots have also been found on the Isle of Wight.  The RSPCA said that hundreds had been found dead, while a further 254 were being treated. But along the coast, many sections of the beach were not being monitored, meaning that thousands of birds were likely to have died undetected.

“It’s the worst possible time for this to happen,” said Derek Davey, 53, a volunteer for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, as he pulled on his dry suit to wade out on the rocks below Portland Bill.  “They are on their way to the breeding grounds off the coast of Ireland and Scotland. Sometimes we have 20,000 birds a day passing through here. It’s awful.”  No one knows why. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency sent up a helicopter above the sea to see – unsuccessfully – if there was an obvious source. Many suspect that a ship in the English Channel illegally rinsed its tanks out at sea, which is cheaper than washing them in the docks.  Any ship operator caught of doing so faces a hefty fine or imprisonment.  The slick has also struck along a valuable area of Britain’s coastline. The Jurassic Coast in Dorset and Devon is famed for its starfish, burrowing anemones and rare pink fans — a type of coral — are all found in the reef off Stennis Ledges. Seals, bottlenose dolphins and basking sharks all swim in the sea.

While Mr Davey set off to clamber among the rocks, a less experienced team was beginning to patrol the beach. “We saw it on the news, and so went out this morning to buy a net,” said Melissa Kennett, 63, patrolling the beach with her two granddaughters.  One granddaughter, Amber, nine, said: “I found the first bird. It was like a black dot and then we got closer and saw it was alive. But it splashed away. We found another two though and carried them back.”  Birds which are rescued are taken to West Hatch, where 20 full and part-time staff are working to rehydrate, clean and feed the birds.  The guillemots and razorbills are fed sprats and rubbed down with supermarket margarine to remove the sticky gunk from their bodies. The birds are then washed in warm soapy water and left to recover, before the team reintroduce the healthiest ones, little by little, to a series of ponds.  “It’s a laborious process that, at its fastest, takes a fortnight for each bird,” said Steve Powell, of the RSPCA.  Marc Smith of the Dorset Wildlife Trust said: “The damage from this goes right the way along the food chain, from the plankton to the fish to the birds, seals and dolphins. This disaster is going to be far worse than we can imagine.”Telegraph.

MASS MAMMAL DIE-OFFS: “Very Unusual” – High Number Of Dolphins, Whales And Porpoise Stranding Deaths In Ireland?!


Andre Heath
February 08, 2013 – IRELAND – The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group says the stranding of high numbers of common dolphins and other species, which has become apparent over the past two weeks here, is “very unusual”.

Photo Credit: (c) Cathy Lynchehaun via the Irish Whale & Dolphin Group.

An apparently otherwise healthy dolphin along with two pilot whales have now been washed up at Cuas Croom near Cahirciveen and there have been continuous strandings of dolphins, particularly in Mayo and Donegal. At the end of January at least eight common dolphins have been found dead on the beaches of Achill Island, Co Mayo.

Mick O’Connell of the whale and dolphin group said the strandings in Mayo and Donegal were “way bigger” than might be expected. Porpoises had also been washed up . These were not live stranding and young dolphins had been involved.

Simon Berrow of the IWDG said weather may have been a factor in the case of a small number of animals particularly the pilot whales which mostly occupied different grounds to the dolphin.

MONUMENTAL MASS FISH DIE-OFF: Herring Apocalypse – Researchers Blame Low Oxygen Levels For The Death Of Millions Of Herrings In Iceland?!


Andre Heath
February 08, 2013 – ICELAND – Researchers in Iceland are blaming low oxygen levels in a shallow fjord for the deaths of tens of thousands of tons of herring.  Masses of dead herring have been found in Kolgrafafjordur fjord for the second time this winter, raising concerns about Iceland’s fishery.

 Associated Press/Brynjar Gauti – Herring worth billions in exports are seen floating dead Tuesday Feb. 5 2013 in Kolgrafafjordur, a small fjord on the northern part of Snaefellsnes peninsula, west Iceland, for the second time in two months. Between 25,000 and 30,000 tons of herring died in December and more now, due to lack of oxygen in the fjord thought to have been caused by a landfill and bridge constructed across the fjord in December 2004. The current export value of the estimated 10,000 tons of herring amounts to ISK 1.25 billion ($ 9.8 million, euro 7.2 million), according to Morgunbladid newspaper. (AP Photo/Brynjar Gauti).

The Morgunbladid newspaper estimated the value of the 10,000 tons of fish found dead this week at 1.25 billion kronur ($9.8 million). An even larger number of fish died in December.  Roughly one season’s worth of herring has been lost, Johann Sigurjonsson, director of Iceland’s Marine Research Institute, said Wednesday.  He said herring tend to winter in large populations and may have depleted the oxygen in the shallow fjord. The danger should ease in spring when the herring spread out into a wider area, he said, downplaying fears that the entire herring fishery is in danger.

“We regard this as a serious event,” he said. “We are investigating; we would like to find out if it is necessary to try to step in somehow.”  The government’s economic minister has increased funding for monitoring in the area to determine what can be done to prevent more fish from dying off. Some blame recent construction in the region for the kills.  Schoolchildren, town workers and volunteers have been cleaning up the dead fish, which can be turned into feed for mink and other animals.  Revenue from the sale is expected to go to local children and to area schools. – FOX News.

 

The herring apocalypse: Fish worth millions in exports die in Icelandic lake

The Dead Sea: Millions of pounds of herring lie dead, believed to have been killed by building work

Stretching as far as the eye can see, dead herring blanket the ground in these chilling pictures taken today.

It is not yet known what is causing the mass fish deaths in Iceland, but today’s grim find is the second such occurrence in two months.

The herring, weighing an estimated 25,000 to 30,000 tonnes and worth £18.9million, were found floating dead in in Kolgrafafjorour, a small fjord on the northern part of Snæfellsnes peninsula, west Iceland, according to the country’s Morgunbladid newspaper.

Biologist Róbert Arnar Stefánsson estimates that 7,000 tonnes of herring is laying on the shore and there are many more at the bottom of the fjord.

Both this mass death and the one in December, where a similar amount of fish died, are thought to be due to a lack of oxygen in the fjord caused by a landfill and bridge constructed across the fjord in 2004.

Fears over the costly deaths have prompted the Marine Research Institute of Iceland to visit and gather information, while Government ministers agreed to allocate money to research and monitor the situation.

School children in the nearby village of Grundarfjorour collected between 25 and 30 tonnes of the dead herring this morning for sale as animal fodder.

They raised an estimated £1,000 for use in sports and other activities through the collection.

The herring will be left to decompose naturally, according to a decision by the Environment Agency of Iceland and the West Iceland Centre of Natural History.

Nearby residents complained about the smell of the rotten fish and there is an ongoing dispute over the clean-up.

Tens of thousands of birds have been drawn to the site to feed, but there are fears the fish oil from the decaying herring might threaten these birds in the coming weeks and months.

The fishing industry is a major part of Iceland’s economy, accounting for approximately half of the country’s total exports.

 

Hundreds of unusual fish beached at Adriatic coast after moderate earthquake hit the region


Posted on February 5, 2013

Several hundred unusual fish, about a meter and a half long, stranded on the shores of Valelunga beach near Pula, Croatia in Adriatic Sea on February 4/5, 2013, the same day that M 4.5 struck the region. Several hundred fish, which can live as dead. Eyewitnesses were trying to get them back into the deeper water but the fish was constantly coming back.

Several hundred unusual fish, about a meter and a half long, stranded on the shores of Valelunga beach near Pula, Croatia in Adriatic Sea on February 4/5, 2013, the same day that M 4.5 struck the region. Several hundred fish, which can live as dead. Eyewitnesses were trying to get them back into the deeper water but the fish was constantly coming back.

According to biologist Neven Iveša, it is probably Trahipterus trahypterus, also known as the fish sword, which usually live in a depth of 200 to 500 meters and very rarely comes to the surface. Iveša said it was possible that the fish ran aground because the wind cooled the shallower parts of the northern Adriatic and experienced temperature shock and then ran aground. Iveša did not exclude the possibility that they are stranded due to the recent earthquake in Dalmatia, which could lead to changes in the marine ecosystem.

The fish sword live in deeper water that are located around Dalmatia region, which was hit by recent earthquakes and the location of beaching is located farther north were the maximum sea depth is about 100-150 meters.

EMSC reported M 4.4 at depth of only 2 km on February 4, 2013 with epicenter 14 km of Trogir, near town of Split. USGS registered M 4.5 at 10 km, while local seismographs recorded M 4.1. That was already third M4+ earthquake that struck the same area from the beginning of the year.

An unbroken zone of increased seismic activity borders the Adriatic Sea, with a belt of thrust faults generally oriented in the northeast–southwest direction on the east coast and the northeast–southwest normal faults in the Apennines, indicating an Adriatic counterclockwise rotation. An active 200-kilometre (120 miles) fault has been identified to the northwest of Dubrovnik, adding to the Dalmatian islands as the Eurasian Plate slides over the Adriatic microplate. Furthermore, the fault causes the Apennine peninsula’s southern tip to move towards the opposite shore by about 0.4 centimetres (0.16 in) per year. If this movement continues, the seafloor will be completely consumed and the Adriatic Sea closed off in 50–70 million years. In the Northern Adriatic, the coast of the Gulf of Trieste and western Istria is gradually subsiding, having sunk about 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) in the past two thousand years.

In the Middle Adriatic Basin, there is evidence of Permian volcanism in the area of Komiža on the island of Vis and the volcanic islands of Jabuka and Brusnik. Earthquakes have been observed in the region since the earliest historical records. In the last 600 years, fifteen tsunamis have occurred in the Adriatic Sea.

MASS FISH DIE-OFF: Large Numbers of Dead Fish Wash up on Shore of Noonu Atol Lhohi?!


The Noonu Atol Lhohi island is approx. 300 miles off the Southwestern tip of India…

8:25 AM  Andre Heath  No comments

Large numbers of dead fish have been washing up on the shore of Noonu Atoll Lhohi

Some dead fish washed up on Noonu Atoll Lhohi beach.

Lhohi council Vice-President Hussain Niyaz said that many dead fish have been gathering in the lagoon and are being washed up ashore polluting the beach for the past two days.  Councilor stated that some fish are not dead when they wash up ashore but are injured and he added that many species of dead fish are being observed out in the ocean.  “We have travelled to some nearby islands to observe, but very few amounts of dead fish are washed up the shores in other islands.

Lhohi beach is completely polluted by the dead and rotting fish.” Niyaz said.  He added that the issue had been notified to the Marine Research Centre and that similar issues came up from time to time.  Director General of Marine Research Centre Dr. Mohamed Shiham said that he was aware of the issue and that the cause is yet unknown. But he referred to a research done by the centre and added that a similar incident five years ago in some islands in the north, including Alif Alif atoll and Meemu atoll had been due to a bacterial infection.Haveeru Online.

 

MASS BEES DIE-OFF: Biological Hazard And Colony Collapse Disorder – About 750,000 Bees Found Dead Within A 1.5-Mile Radius In California?!


Please share freely, the bees are in a race against pesticides…and the clock!

Andre Heath
February 01, 2013 – UNITED STATES
Last October, SBBA was called out to several backyard beekeepers’ properties in response to massive honeybee die-offs. Local amateur beekeeper, Carrie Kappel, called SBBA when she noticed hundreds of dead and dying bees outside her backyard beehive. “It was devastating to see the number of dead bees outside the hive, and watch those in their death throes, twitching and stumbling around in front of the hive, unable to fly. I watched the whole hive go from healthy and vigorous to empty over a few short weeks.” A total of 16 formerly healthy hives, with an average population of 30-60,000 bees each were lost. SBBA estimates approximately 750,000 bees lost their lives, all within a 1.5-mile radius. The Association submitted four test samples to Penn State University for a comprehensive pesticide screening and just received the reports back from the USDA labs.

As SBBA leaders suspected, there were several commonly used pesticides found in bee food stores, brood cells and wax. These include bifenthrin (found in hundreds of agricultural and household pesticide products), chlorpyrifos (used on orchards, golf courses, and crops, and banned from residential use), cyhalothrin (found in household and commercial products like Demand, Karate, and Warrior), and fipronil (used in over 50 products to control ants, termites, fleas and other insects, e.g., Frontline, Goliath, Nexa, and Regent). All of these chemicals are known to be highly toxic to bees. Also found at low levels were two legal miticides used by beekeepers to control mites. While this does not prove that pesticides were behind the die-offs, it does point to them as a possible factor. According to Penn State Senior Extension Associate, Maryann Frazier, “Honey bees across the country are being exposed to a great diversity and sometimes high levels of pesticides. While the evidence associated with the Montecito die-off is not conclusive, the symptoms of colony deaths and detections of low levels of pesticides toxic to honey bees are suspicious and cause for concern.” While SBBA is very upset about this loss, its leaders hope that by spreading the word about the die-off, community members will become more aware of the potential dangers of pesticides for honeybees and other pollinators. The organization encourages pest control companies, horticulturalists, landscape contractors and homeowners to evaluate the products that they are using and how they are being applied and work to reduce risks to honeybees and other beneficial insects.

Honeybees have been in decline worldwide. Frazier notes, “We believe that pesticide exposure is an important factor contributing to pollinator decline and possibly Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).” Colony Collapse Disorder has wiped out honeybee hives in the US and elsewhere, threatening both the viability of commercial beekeeping and the sustainability of the pollination services that honeybees provide to agricultural crops, domestic gardens, and wild plants. Whatever the cause of the Montecito die-off – whether acute pesticide poisoning, CCD, or other stresses – it may be symptomatic of a general decline in the quality of our environment for honeybees. “Honeybees and other pollinators are getting hit hard, but there are things we can do to reduce the threats to them,” said SBBA President, Paul Cronshaw. Pesticides applied to plants that are in bloom can be transferred to the hive by bees foraging for nectar and pollen, and thus the pesticides can impact the entire colony. SBBA urges Santa Barbara community members to please speak with your gardener, pest control company and anyone else that may use these products to make sure that they are being used properly. Commercial pesticides should only be applied by registered, licensed pesticide applicators. They should be applied carefully, according to the instructions on the label, and only as needed, avoiding applying them to blooming plants and at times when pollinators are active. “Working together, we can reduce both our own exposures to pesticides, and also the honeybee’s, so that she may continue to help us feed the planet,” says SBBA Vice President, Todd Bebb. – RSOE EDIS.

Petition to End the Faroe Islands’ Whale & Dolphin Slaughter


Please join me in signing this petition to end the inhumane “annual” slaughter of pilot whales in the Faroe Islands, can you believe young men do this for fun to prove virility? What’s wrong with these people, why??? Thank you!

Posted by on Thursday, August 9, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Source: http://www.unleashed.org.au

Thousands of signatures have now been presented in person to the Faroe Islands Government. Add your voice to this petition to keep up the demand until this cruel whale slaughter is banned.

Hundreds of pilot whales are slaughtered every year on the Faroe Islands, a small group of islands north of Europe. Faroe men go out with boats to drive these animals into a fjord using nets to block their way back to sea. The whales then beach themselves, or are pulled ashore with a blunt hook lodged in their blowholes. Once beached and defenceless these whales are killed by having their spinal cords and major blood vessels cut. It can take up to three and a half minutes for a whale to eventually die.

Other than pilot whales, several species of dolphins are also killed using these same methods.

Due to the harsh climate that makes it difficult to grow food on the Faroe Islands, the meat and blubber of these animals was once an important part of the diet of the Faroe people. But nowadays their food supply is diverse and plentiful, the cruel whale and dolphin hunt continues primarily for the sake of ‘tradition’.

Please show the Faroe Islands that the international community is strongly opposed to this cruel slaughter by signing this petition to the Faroe Islands Prime Minister.

Patricia Cori – U.S. Navy destroying dolphins & whales, attacking Earth’s life frequency


Uploaded on Jul 11, 2011

Excerpt from article:

Cetaceans: dolphins and whales and other sea-life to be decimated by U.S. Navy

Patricia Cori’s statements are also congruent with those of researcher Rosalind Peterson, who is actively concerned about the impact of the U.S. Navy’s sonar program on cetaceans.

Rosalind Peterson states, “The United States Navy will be decimating millions of marine mammals and other aquatic life, each year, for the next five years, under their Warfare Testing Range Complex Expansions in the Atlantic, Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS under NOAA), has already approved the “taking” of marine mammals in more than a dozen Navy Range Warfare Testing Complexes, and is preparing to issue another permit for 11.7 millions marine mammals (32 Separate Species), to be decimated along the Northern, California, Oregon and Washington areas of the Pacific Ocean.

“U.S. Department of Commerce – NOAA (NMFS) Definition: ‘TAKE’ Defined under the MMPA as ‘harass, hunt, capture, kill or collect, or attempt to harass, hunt, capture, kill or collect.’ Defined under the ESA as ‘to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct.’ Definition: Incidental Taking: An unintentional, but not unexpected taking.

“The total number of marine mammals that will be decimated in the Atlantic, Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico for the next five years is unknown. The NMFS approvals will have a devastating impact upon the marine mammal populations worldwide and this last Navy permit, which is expected to be issued in February 2010, for the “taking” of more than 11.7 million marine mammals in the Pacific will be the final nail in the coffin for any healthy populations of sea life to survive.

“Now with ever-increasing numbers of permits being issued for sonar programs in more than twelve ranges in the Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic regions of the United States, our marine mammals and other sea life are facing complete devastation. When you add bomb blasts to this list, warfare testing of all types, future war testing practice, and the toxic chemicals that are both airborne and to be used underwater, there is little chance that most marine life will survive in any significant numbers. Our U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressmen refuse to postpone these disastrous “takings” or hold U.S. Congressional Hearings while pretending to be ocean environment friendly in their re-election speeches.

“[During] June 8th through June 16, 2009, a delegation from Connecticut and California spent time walking the halls of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. We left petitions, color fliers, and information about saving our marine mammals, requested a postponement and U.S. Congressional Hearings. Ninety-nine senate offices were visited and 2/3 of offices in the U.S. House of Representatives. The silent response from our elected officials regarding these two requests has been zero…one U.S. Congressman even stated that citizens would be ‘laughed out of the halls of the U.S. Congress for suggesting that we protect our marine mammals’. Corporate paid ‘Lobbyists’, who hand out money by the $Millions, on the other hand, are always accepted at hearings, give testimony, and are welcomed in the halls of Congress…apparently the voices of citizens of the United States are not given the same status.

“These virtually unregulated Navy Warfare Testing Programs already approved are now taking a toll on marine mammals, the fishing and ocean tourism industries, and on all aquatic life. Many U.S. Senators and Congressmen are ignoring these issues by pretending that they doesn’t exist even though they have been informed in advance of these programs.

Beekeepers expect “worst year for bees”


Paul Towers's picture
Wed, 2013-01-16
Paul Towers

“We’re facing the extinction of a species.” That’s what one Midwest-based large-scale commercial beekeeper told me last week at the annual gathering of the American Honey Producers Association (AHPA). And he meant it.

Bee losses have been dramatic, especially in recent years. And beekeepers are feeling the sting. According to many who manage hives, commercial beekeeping won’t pencil out in the future unless things change, and soon.

Beekeepers from across the country gathered in San Diego to swap stories and share best practices in the trade, as well as to learn more about the latest research on declines in bee populations (often referred to as Colony Collapse Disorder). Independent science continues to point to pesticides as one of the critical co-factors in bee losses — alongside nutrition and disease — and beekeepers continue to see major declines. And these losses parallel the ongoing increase in pesticide products used on seeds and in fields across the country.

As one beekeeper told me, “On average, 40% over-wintering losses across the country. That’s what we’re facing. And my losses are closer to 70% — this is likely gonna be the worst year for bees.”

But it isn’t just this year; USDA reports major bee population declines since 2006. Another beekeeper told me he lost over $250,000 in honey business last year alone, and he’s no longer pollinating melon and cherries. As he reminded me, this not only has direct impacts on him, but his employees, their communities, suppliers, vendors, the food system and agricultural economy.

Pesticide industry, front & center

Workshops on pesticides were more common than ever at this annual AHPA conference, as evidence mounts showing pesticides to be a key catalyst in bee declines. And representatives from chemical giants like Arysta, Bayer and Monsanto made their presence known, even hosting workshops to pacify concerned beekeepers.

These corporations have a lot at stake. With the market becoming increasingly consolidated, just a few companies manufacture many of the same seeds and pesticides implicated in honey bee losses. If history is any guide, these corporations will likely continue to object to finding healthy, sustainable and commonsense solutions to bee declines.

Toward commonsense solutions

By the end of the conference, several themes had emerged. Beekeepers, and the farmers they work with, don’t have the necessary support from state and federal officials to protect pollinators and maintain productive businesses. They feel victim to a handful of powerful pesticide corporations and lax government regulators.

In order to support healthy pollinators, several beekeepers suggested the following:

  • Reduce pesticide use, especially near bees. With the weight of the evidence behind them, beekeepers are encouraging reductions in pesticide use, including the use of products like neonicotinoids and fungicides, and especially near bees.
  • Fix the system that tracks bee incidents. Beekeepers find it burdensome and ineffective to report pesticide-related bee kills, as the onus is often placed on them, and many states have failed to create systems for monitoring bee kills.
  • Create transparent state and federal systems for tracking pesticide use. Beekeepers, like rural and farmworker communities, are best served by knowing what’s being used near them, including amount, type and weather conditions. The federal government and most states — except for California, New York and Oregon— have failed to create a meaningful pesticide use tracking program.

Some beekeepers have taken matters into their own hands, forming the National Pollinator Defense Fund. With a commitment to protecting bees and their livelihood, this new band of beekeepers will “defend managed and native pollinators vital to a sustainable and affordable food supply from the adverse impacts of pesticides.”

No doubt it will take all of us to make sure they are successful, and to ensure we will have healthy bees and beekeepers for years to come.

Ed. note: What’s not mentioned as a possible cause to the decline in bee population is radiation from Fukushima. Several months ago I released this video showing that bee’s in Nova Scotia were literally dying after landing on flowers, it’s heartbreaking to watch…

Doomsday Methane Bubble Rupture?: How the BP Gulf Disaster May Have Triggered a ‘World-Killing’ Event


Note: This article is dated 2010, but is still relevant since much of what was predicted appears to be unfolding at this time. If you haven’t listened to Nuked Radio episode 79 with Early2it, type the title into the search box on the right column to pull up the video. Also, search for Dane Wigington interview on End the Lie for important developments regarding the global methane release.

Doomsday Methane Bubble Rupture?: How the BP Gulf Disaster May Have Triggered a 'World-Killing' Event
Global Research, July 15, 2010

The unfolding disaster may be about to reach biblical proportions

Ominous reports are leaking past the BP Gulf salvage operation news blackout that the disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico may be about to reach biblical proportions.

251 million years ago a mammoth undersea methane bubble caused massive explosions, poisoned the atmosphere and destroyed more than 96 percent of all life on Earth. [1] Experts agree that what is known as the Permian extinction event was the greatest mass extinction event in the history of the world. [2]

55 million years later another methane bubble ruptured causing more mass extinctions during the Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum (LPTM).

The LPTM lasted 100,000 years. [3]

Those subterranean seas of methane virtually reshaped the planet when they explosively blew from deep beneath the waters of what is today called the Gulf of Mexico.

Now, worried scientists are increasingly concerned the same series of catastrophic events that led to worldwide death back then may be happening again-and no known technology can stop it.

The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.

The oil giant drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble.

Ryskin’s methane extinction theory

Northwestern University‘s Gregory Ryskin, a bio-chemical engineer, has a theory: The oceans periodically produce massive eruptions of explosive methane gas. He has documented the scientific evidence that such an event was directly responsible for the mass extinctions that occurred 55 million years ago. [4]

Many geologists concur: “The consequences of a methane-driven oceanic eruption for marine and terrestrial life are likely to be catastrophic. Figuratively speaking, the erupting region “boils over,” ejecting a large amount of methane and other gases (e.g., CO2, H2S) into the atmosphere, and flooding large areas of land. Whereas pure methane is lighter than air, methane loaded with water droplets is much heavier, and thus spreads over the land, mixing with air in the process (and losing water as rain). The air-methane mixture is explosive at methane concentrations between 5% and 15%; as such mixtures form in different locations near the ground and are ignited by lightning, explosions and conflagrations destroy most of the terrestrial life, and also produce great amounts of smoke and of carbon dioxide…” [5]

The warning signs of an impending planetary catastrophe—of such great magnitude that the human mind has difficulty grasping it-would be the appearance of large fissures or rifts splitting open the ocean floor, a rise in the elevation of the seabed, and the massive venting of methane and other gases into the surrounding water.

Such occurrences can lead to the rupture of the methane bubble containment—it can then permit the methane to breach the subterranean depths and undergo an explosive decompression as it catapults into the Gulf waters.  [6]

All three warning signs are documented to be occurring in the Gulf.

Ground zero: The Gulf Coast

The people and property located on the greater expanse of the Gulf Coast are sitting at Ground Zero. They will be the first exposed to poisonous, cancer causing chemical gases. They will be the ones that initially experience the full fury of a methane bubble exploding from the ruptured seabed.

The media has been kept away from the emergency salvage measures being taken to forestall the biggest catastrophe in human history. The federal government has warned them away from the epicenter of operations with the threat of a $40,000 fine for each infraction and the possibility of felony arrests.

Why is the press being kept away? Word is that the disaster is escalating.

Cracks and bulges

Methane is now streaming through the porous, rocky seabed at an accelerated rate and gushing from the borehole of the first relief well. The EPA is on record that Rig #1 is releasing methane, benzene, hydrogen sulfide and other toxic gases. Workers there now wear advanced protection including state-of-the-art, military-issued gas masks.

Reports, filtering through from oceanologists and salvage workers in the region, state that the upper level strata of the ocean floor is succumbing to greater and greater pressure. That pressure is causing a huge expanse of the seabed-estimated by some as spreading over thousands of square miles surrounding the BP wellhead-to bulge. Some claim the seabed in the region has risen an astounding 30 feet.

The fractured BP wellhead, site of the former Deepwater Horizon, has become the epicenter of frenetic attempts to quell the monstrous flow of methane.

The subterranean methane is pressurized at 100,000 pounds psi. According to Matt Simmons, an oil industry expert, the methane pressure at the wellhead has now skyrocketed to a terrifying 40,000 pounds psi.

Another well-respected expert, Dr. John Kessler of Texas A&M University has calculated that the ruptured well is spewing 60 percent oil and 40 percent methane. The normal methane amount that escapes from a compromised well is about 5 percent.

More evidence? A huge gash on the ocean floor—like a ragged wound hundreds of feet long—has been reported by the NOAA research ship, Thomas Jefferson. Before the curtain of the government enforced news blackout again descended abruptly, scientists aboard the ship voiced their concerns that the widening rift may go down miles into the earth.

That gash too is hemorrhaging oil and methane. It’s 10 miles away from the BP epicenter. Other, new fissures, have been spotted as far as 30 miles distant.

Measurements of the multiple oil plumes now appearing miles from the wellhead indicate that as much as a total  of 124,000 barrels of oil are erupting into the Gulf waters daily-that’s about 5,208,000 gallons of oil per day.

Most disturbing of all: Methane levels in the water are now calculated as being almost one million times higher than normal. [7]

Mass death on the water

If the methane bubble—a bubble that could be as big as 20 miles wide—erupts with titanic force from the seabed into the Gulf, every ship, drilling rig and structure within the region of the bubble will immediately sink. All the workers, engineers, Coast Guard personnel and marine biologists participating in the salvage operation will die instantly.

Next, the ocean bottom will collapse, instantaneously displacing up to a trillion cubic feet of water or more and creating a towering supersonic tsunami annihilating everything along the coast and well inland. Like a thermonuclear blast, a high pressure atmospheric wave could precede the tidal wave flattening everything in its path before the water arrives.

When the roaring tsunami does arrive it will scrub away all that is left.

A chemical cocktail of poisons

Some environmentalist experts are calling what’s pouring into the land, sea and air from the seabed breach ’a chemical cocktail of poisons.’

Areas of dead zones devoid of oxygen are driving species of fish into foreign waters, killing plankton and other tiny sea life that are the foundation for the entire food chain, and polluting the air with cancer-causing chemicals and poisonous rainfalls.

A report from one observer in South Carolina documents oily residue left behind after a recent thunderstorm. And before the news blackout fully descended the EPA released data that benzene levels in New Orleans had rocketed to 3,000 parts per billion.

Benzene is extremely toxic and even short term exposure can cause agonizing death from cancerous lesions years later.

The people of Louisiana have been exposed for more than two months—and the benzene levels may be much higher now. The EPA measurement was taken in early May. [8]

Doomsday

While some say it can’t happen because the bulk of the methane is frozen into crystalline form, others point out that the underground methane sea is gradually melting from the nearby surging oil that’s estimated to be as hot as 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Most experts in the know, however, agree that if the world-changing event does occur it will happen suddenly and within the next 6 months.

So, if events go against  Mankind and the bubble bursts in the coming months, Gregory Ryskin may become one of the most famous people in the world. Of course, he won’t have long to enjoy his new found fame because very shortly after the methane eruption civilization will collapse.

Perhaps if humanity is very, very lucky, some may find a way to avoid the mass extinction that follows and carry on the human race.

Perhaps.

Double deja vu on December 31st? Up to 300 starlings litter roadway and fields in Seymour, Tennessee


TheMountainPress.com
Mon, 31 Dec 2012

Residents and those passing by near Dogwood Hills subdivision on Boyd Creek Highway Sunday afternoon were met with an unusual scene. Dozens of dead birds littered the highway and surrounding fields after falling from the sky.Sgt. Robert Stoffle of the Sevier County Sheriff’s Department said a call about the birds came in around 1:15 p.m. He said a witness reported seeing the birds in flight before turning back around to see them on the ground.

“It covered one lane of traffic,” Stoffle said of the bodies of the birds. Estimates of the number of birds varied from between 30 and 60 up to 300. They appeared to be starlings.

While the vast majority of the birds were dead by the time The Mountain Press photographer arrived, several were still alive, convulsing and flopping their wings on the ground.

A count of the birds on the scene stopped at around 50, when not even half of the visible birds were tallied. Perhaps dozens more were scattered in a nearby field, which was flooded from the recent rainfall. As far as 60 yards from the main site of the birds, individual starlings were found.

A local resident, who didn’t want to be named, said he was quite shocked to see the large group of dead and dying birds on the road.

“I was (driving) to the house … and I see a couple of kids standing in the road. I’m like, ‘what are these kids doing in the road?’

“When we get closer, next thing you know, there’s birds everywhere and they were all dead. It was disgusting. It was really amazing. That end-of-the-world was supposed to have been coming and stuff, so everybody was like, ‘oh, no,'” he said, laughing.

“When I first came upon it, when the kids were kicking them out of the road, there had to be 300 birds there, at least. It was crazy. There’s some even in the field and the water and stuff, too, it’s crazy.

Officials from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency responded and took two to three birds from the scene for testing, Stoffle said. A state highway department truck with a snow blade attachment scraped the birds from the highway onto the shoulder.

Editor’s Note: Hopefully this will be the only case of mass bird kills coming in this year…the past few years around the new year have been horrific with the sheer number of incidents occurring over a short period of time. On a personal note, my companion in life is a Diamond Dove, miniature white doves…they’re smart, loving and quite intuitive. His name is Baby Love and I found him in 2006 while living in Hollywood, someone had abandoned several cages of birds and he was the only one left aside from a large dove that flew away when I approached him. Over the last few years Baby Love has become an integral part of my life and a true friend, birds really are amazing creatures with so much joy, life and personality to their souls! And it wasn’t long ago that this little bird literally saved my life, it was at a time when I was lost in the depths of depression and despair and had seriously contemplated suicide, but it always came down to knowing that this little life depended on ME and the connection we have with each other…I couldn’t leave him behind all alone ~ not understanding why I left him.  So for myself, it breaks my heart to see these reports because birds are so innocent, fragile and divinely special in nature.

 

Mysterious coral disease strikes Hawaiian island

An unusual epidemic of coral disease has been killing a large number of corals on the north shore of the Hawaiian island, Kunai, according to researchers at the University of Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology.

Examination of the diseased areas, called lesions, suggests a mysterious cyanobacterial infection. Known for causing blooms in freshwater lakes, some species of Cyanobacteria, a type of blue-green algae, produce toxins that can sicken aquatic life, animals and even humans. However, the researchers said the current outbreak appear limited to corals.

The coral disease outbreak is said to be the first such cynobacterial infection documented in Hawaii on such a large scale. The university researchers are collaborating with USGS scientists to identify the cause of infection and what is promoting the outbreak.

“An unusually large amount of sediment is present on two affected reefs, and this is known to adversely affect corals in other areas. However, what role sediment or other land based pollution has in driving this disease remains unclear,” USGS said in a release.

Climate Change linked to Outbreak?

Climate change has adversely affected the coral reefs of Hawaii and it’s likely that like other possible causes such as land-based pollution, climate change could also be responsible for the coral disease outbreak.

“Wildlife disease outbreaks are indicators that something is awry in the environment. Understanding causes of disease and what drives those causes is important because this information helps management agencies make informed decisions to prevent further spread of the disease or minimize impact of disease. Understanding the role and causes of disease in corals and their prevention may contribute to prevention of additional outbreaks and aid in their recovery.”

Coral reefs around the world support over one million species of plants and animals. They are important both environmentally and economically.

“Coral reefs are important to Hawaii’s underwater environments and the financial well-being of its tourism industry. Like it or not, ecosystem health is closely intertwined with human and animal health,” said USGS scientist Thierry Work.

Ed Note: Is anyone doing studies on how radiation from Fukushima is affecting the coral reefs? Nothing mentioned here about radioactive contamination on the islands, within two months of the Japan earthquake my health deteriorated. Vegetation began losing it’s color and vibrant appearance, and the forests are also dying in some areas. We don’t have the chemtrails that plague much of the mainland, so the problems with vegetation can’t be blamed on geoengineering….unless the toxins have permeated the upper atmosphere to the degree that contamination is global. Research has found mercury is found in the upper atmosphere globally, so it’s not too far fetched to say that toxins from chemtrails have spread worldwide as well. Now, Fukushima’s adding radiation to the mix for a really potent cocktail. No wonder Mother Earth is so throwing fits…
