JUST 3 HOURS AGO FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, IN CHILE... 337 Whales Beached in Largest Stranding Ever.
Scientists say they are most likely sei whales, which are endangered.
Actually discovered by scientists in late June this year, because of the remoteness of the area and the roughness of the seas, scientists have not been able to examine the whales directly, but aerial and satellite photography identified 305 bodies and 32 skeletons in an area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales, toward the southern tip of the continent.
The sei whale's lifespan is 50 to 70 years.
They are usually found in deep waters far from coastlines.
Other recent, as in SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER, 2015, news articles cite unusual mortality among two other species of fur seal pups.
NOAA HAS ISSUED A 'UME' FOR THESE FUR SEALS.
THEY WERE NOT INCLUDED IN MY LIST BELOW.
NOR WERE RIGHT WHALES.
DEATHS OF NUMEROUS RIGHT WHALE CALVES OFF THE COAST OF ARGENTINA WAS REPORTED IN OCTOBER.
In recent years, however, right whales – the majority of them were young calves – have been dying off at an alarming rate. "
A hungry sea lion pup in February 2015, but Momma sea lion is starving, too.
THERE IS SIMPLY NO FOOD AVAILABLE NEARBY.
THE PACIFIC AND HER MARINE LIFE ARE DYING.
From 2012 to today, too many have come ashore to rescue.
Fewer than 3 in 12 can be taken to be examined and fewer still can be saved.
Leukemia was determined to be cause of death in many of these pitiful young creatures.
Leukemia was determined to be cause of death in many of these pitiful young creatures.
I INCLUDE ALL SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES BECAUSE OF THE MIXING OF WATERS AT THE TIP OF SOUTH AMERICA, AS WELL AS BY MEANS OF THE SUEZ CANAL.
I INCLUDE DEATHS ON BOTH OF MEXICO'S COAST FOR A SIMILAR REASON.
I DID NOT INCLUDE BUT A VERY FEW DEATHS FROM NATIONS OF THE INDIAN OCEAN, CHINA SEA, OR FROM THE EAST COAST OF AFRICA.
DUE TO THEIR CLOSE PROXIMITY TO JAPAN, BOTH SOUTH KOREA'S AND ALL OF CHINA'S DEATH REPORTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED, PERHAPS, BUT WERE NOT.
IN THE CASE OF AUSTRALIA, 2 OR 3 REPORTS OF DEATHS ALONG AN INLAND RIVER ARE GIVEN BECAUSE OF MIGRATORY AND TIDAL PATTERNS FROM SEA INLAND.
THESE ARE ONLY DEATH REPORTS FROM THE 'PACIFIC RIM' THAT "MADE THE NEWS".
AS TIME PERMITS, I HOPE TO COMPILE OTHER LISTS FROM 2011, 2012, 2013 AND 2014.
THIS LIST IS ONLY FOR 2015.

Sardines, like the dead mass pictured above, were another species that died by the millions all over the Pacific this year...and last year... and the year before that...during cool and warm water events, during all seasons, during algae blooms and NO algae blooms, NO El Nino or El Nina, in too many different situations and times for anyone to GUESS at why they died. So many other marine creatures rely on these fish to survive that we might think some agency would get to the bottom of this.

More than 100 pilot whales died in a mass stranding on a remote New Zealand beach on February 20, 2011, two days before a large quake struck the country's second-largest city Christchurch.

~ A Radioactive Nightmare
"High radiation readings in Santa Monica and Los Angeles air during a 42-day period from late December to late January strongly suggest that radiation is increasing in the region including along the coast in Ventura County.
Scientific studies from the United Kingdom and Europe show that sea water infused with radiation of the sort spewing out of Fukushima can travel inland from the coast up to 300 kilometers. These mobile poisons include cesium-137 and plutonium-239, the latter with a half-life of 24,400 years."
~ THE PRICE (IN LIVES LOST) OF NUCLEAR ENERGY
~ As I said, I left out all "unusual mortality events" from the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, all of Europe, almost all reported by China, South Korea, all reported by African and Middle eastern Nations, all reports from the Gulf of Mexico, unless it pertained to Mexico and Central America.
But, again, some deaths, the number of species involved in one event, is often incredible, as was this report from the Caribbean:
2nd October 2015 - Thousands of dead fish, plus eels and lobsters wash up in Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Link
AND FROM IRELAND: 3rd October 2015 - MILLIONS of dead fish wash ashore, 'a strange phenomenon' in Kerry,Ireland. Link
AND FROM VIETNAM:5th October 2015 - Tens of thousands of lobsters suddenly die off, 'reason unknown' in Quang Ngai, Vietnam. Link
AND FROM INDIA:
5th November 2015 - Dead dolphins, turtles and whales washing ashore, 'experts puzzled' in Mumbai, India. Link
~ THAT THIS MAY HAVE BEEN RELATED TO ROCKET LAUNCHES IS INTRIGUING, BUT THAT ENTIRE HERD WAS ANNIHILATED.
4th June 2015 - UPDATE: 127,000+ antelope dead in a 'sudden die off' in Northern Kazakhstan. Link
4th June 2015 - UPDATE: 127,000+ antelope dead in a 'sudden die off' in Northern Kazakhstan. Link
[NOTE: ADDED 11/23/2015:
SOME FAULT ME FOR INSINUATING OR SIMPLY STATING THAT I BLAME RADIATION FOR THESE DEATHS, SAY THERE IS NO EVIDENCE.
THERE IS EVIDENCE AND WILL BE MORE AS TIME GOES ON.
ALREADY, AN ADMISSION THAT THE DYING SEAL PUPS, MANY, WERE VICTIMS OF LEUKEMIA, A SURE SIGN OF RADIATION CONTAMINATION.
RADIATION IN EVERYTHING FROM KELP TO WHALES HAS BEEN FOUND, AND RESULTS ARE PUBLISHED.
RADIATION SHOWED UP IN MILK IN WISCONSIN, WATER IN MANY U.S. CITIES AND AS REPORTED BY FORBES ONLINE AND OTHER PLACES, FUKUSHIMA WAS THE PROVEN SOURCE.
THE ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISION, THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION, THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY, EVEN THE FDA AND CDC HAVE ALL SAID AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER, AND ARE STILL SAYING, THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A "SAFE" LEVEL OF RADIATION INSIDE A HUMAN BODY...NO SAFE LEVEL.
LOW-LEVEL RADIATION HAS, CAN, AND ALWAYS WILL CREATE DESTRUCTION IN HUMAN DNA.
THAT LEADS TO CANCERS.
ALL THAT ASIDE, TO THOSE WHO FAULT ANY OF US WHO BELIEVE RADIATION IS A CAUSE, IF NOT THE CAUSE, OF MASS MARINE DEATHS, I WILL ASK JUST THIS....
WOULD YOU PLACE YOURSELF OR YOUR CHILD OR GRANDCHILD IN THAT PACIFIC WATER, OR ON A PACIFIC BEACH AND STAY THERE OR KEEP HIM/HER THERE FOR EVEN A FEW DAYS, KNOWING, SEEING THE TRACKING MAPS, THAT FUKUSHIMA RADIATION HAS ARRIVED AND WILL BE ARRIVING DAILY FOR THE NEXT HUNDREDS TO MILLIONS OF YEARS (DEPENDING ON RADIOACTIVE PARTICLE AND ITS RATE OF DECAY)?
WOULD YOU DO THAT?WOULD YOU OR NOT?
I HAVE A YOUNG GRANDSON WHO WAS CATCHING RAINDROPS ON HIS TONGUE NEAR THE SITE IN MISSISSIPPI WHERE NASA SCIENTISTS MEASURED POLONIUM , AMERICIUM, AND IODINE-131 FROM FUKUSHIMA ...FOR TWO WEEKS...DURING THAT PARTICULAR RAIN HE WAS OUT IN...
A FEW RAINDROPS...
"Interestingly, the 210Po/210Pb (POLONIUM AND RADIOACTIVE LEAD) ratios of the fallout samples during the peak 131I fallout period were anomalously high… "
WE WILL HAVE HIM TESTED FOR YEARS BECAUSE OF "JUST" THAT.
