70,000 Birds Slaughtered To Clear Skies For Our Airplanes! Tip of the Iceberg

Despite culling, bird strikes have increased

Nearby Kennedy Airport lies beneath a major migratory route for many bird species. The airport has also seen a significant increase in bird strikes.

In the wake of this widespread avian slaughter and it’s apparent ineffectiveness, opponents state that airport officials should find alternative measures to protect pilots and their passengers.

Jeffrey Kramer, a volunteer for GooseWatch NYC, believes that more efficient radar systems should be employed.

These would detect and avoid problematic flocks. “There has to be a long-term solution that doesn’t rely so extensively on killing birds and also keeps us safe in the sky.”

Airport officials say skies are safer without birds….and the Earth would be safer without humans?

How do you feel about the mass-slaughter of all these birds? Is it justifiable?

Authorities have ordered the evacuation of over 2,900 people after a petrochemical plant in the city of Arida, Japan erupted in a major fire.

Footage broadcast by the Japanese media shows firefighters trying to dose the flames as well as thick plum of black smoke rising against the skyline.

According to Kyodo news agency, the local authorities were recommended to evacuate some 3,000 people.

The evacuated people were accommodated in two evacuation stations.

There is no data on the cause of the fire, as well as on the casualties so far.

The refinery caught fire at 07:00 GMT. According to the preliminary information, a container with lubricants flamed up, while no blasts were reported.

The fire area has reached 100 square meters [3.8 square miles]. Some 20 fire brigades were sent to combat fire in the area.

Wales: Environment Bosses ‘devastated’ after discovering 200 ancient Trees Cut down by An Unknown Tree Assassin

Inspectors were visiting countryside in Blackwood, near Caerphilly, South Wales, when they came across a field of stumps.

The hedgerow beeches are thought to be around 150-200 years old.

Natural Resources Wales have launched an investigation into the felling and have said anyone wanting to chop down so many veteran trees would need a licence.

Jim Hepburn, regulatory woodland officer at Natural Resources Wales, said: ‘This is a devastating case which will have a terrible impact on the local environment and no doubt be very upsetting for local people.

‘These trees would have been around 150 – 200 years old and would have provided valuable habitat for wildlife.

‘We continue to investigate how this felling has happening, and will take the necessary action against those responsible.’

20,000 fish: lobsters, starfish, scallops, crabs & other animals died at Savory Park, Canada

30 December 2016

The carcasses of thousands of sea creatures have mysteriously washed up on the western coast of Nova Scotia.

As many as 20,000 fish, lobsters, starfish, scallops, crabs and other animals have turned up dead at Savory Park, Canadian authorities said.

And they have no idea why. Canada’s Fisheries and Oceans department tweeted images of the massive cross-species graveyard.

Environmental officials are testing the water for pesticides and oxygen levels for possible clues. As a precaution, they’re warning consumers to only buy seafood from authorized vendors.

“Dead fish found on shore should not be collected by general public,” the Fisheries and Oceans department tweeted.

According to the US Geological Survey, a number of factors could contribute to fish kills. While toxic chemical exposure can be one cause, most fish kills are attributed to low concentrations of dissolved oxygen in the water, according to the USGS.

Just this year, mass fish deaths were reported in Florida’s Indian River Lagoon and Hongcheng Lake in Haikou,China.

In Florida, dead fish blanketed the Atlantic coast for miles in March. The deaths were caused by a combination of environmental factors. Warmer waters, increased precipitation and pollutant runoff made way for toxic algae blooms and brown tide, ultimately depleting the water of oxygen.

In China, an estimated 35 tons of fish died at Hongcheng Lake in May. While residents blamed the fish kill on pollution, local authorities attributed the incident to changes in salt levels…..

RSOE EMERGENCY AND DISASTER INFORMATION

Radioactive fish from Fukushima nuclear plant found on west coast of US

Posted in 2016 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2016 by theboldcorsicanflame

NaturalNews – In recent weeks, two new landmarks were crossed in the ongoing, inexorable spread of radioactive material from the 2011 Fukushima disaster toward North America’s west coast.

In November, researchers from the Fukushima InFORM project detected the radioactive isotope Cesium-134 (Cs-134) in Canadian salmon.

Then on December 9, researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution detected Cs-134 in seawater samples taken at two beaches in Oregon.

Because Cs-134 has a half life of only two years, any occurrence of the isotope in the environment must have come from Fukushima.

In 2011, a major earthquake and tsunami triggered multiple meltdowns at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Massive quantities of radioactive material spilled into the ocean, while further material ejected into the air also eventually found its way to sea. Since then, researchers have been tracking the progress of this “radioactive plume” as it is carried toward North America by ocean currents.
