Timeline of recent mysterious bird, fish deaths (something is wrong)
Timeline of recent mysterious bird, fish deaths ^

Posted on 01/12/2011 4:02:22 AM PST by Scythian

The recent mysterious deaths of birds and fish are causing alarm among naturalists around the world. Birds are literally falling dead out of the sky, and fish are washing up dead on shores and rivers across North America and around the world. The reaction from the mainstream media seems strangely subdued, as if they're all just blowing this off as some unexplained quirk about the natural world that should be largely ignored.

NaturalNews readers think differently. We are concerned when thousands of dead birds fall out of the sky for no apparent reason. The sky itself may not be falling, but previously live animals are clearly falling out of it. If that's not enough reason to wonder what the heck is happening to our planet, then what is?

These are clear signs that something is wrong. Red flags from nature, if you will. Here's the timeline of recent deaths that have been reported:

Here's the timeline of recent deaths that have been reported:

Funny thing most of those have in common - they happened in winter. A very severe winter. Imagine that - cold can kill. What's next? A breathless timeline of bears crapping in the woods? I can't wait.

While far from being an expert on such matters, I think one possible explanation for some of these occurrences is a general global cooling in mnay areas.

Not global warming which I believe is a complete and utter hoax.

Some of the items mention Florida - plenty of documentation of record cold snaps in that state. Some of the items mention UK - plenty of documentation of the horrific winter weather they had in December.

Realize there are publications whose stock in trade is alarmism, as there is a ready market for that. But this can largely be explained by natural phenomenon and by looking at history.

This can be explained by the "Day After Tomorrow" megamucho cold-hole supernovae that instantly creates hurricane sized 'eyes' that are devoid of any heat whatsoever....it's perfectly natural.

We can expect the next to follow: tsunamis that will inundate NYC, massive shifts in climate ---- aw, hell...why not let's just throw "2012" in there for good measure!

Its simply the cold air. Global warmig is DEAD. We are moving into a freeze period in which cold blooded animals are at risk , as their traditionalhabitatas begin to freeze earlier and earlier in the seasons, catching them at the wrong place at the wrong time.

This is why the media is so subdued. They do not want to report the obvious for fear of the reaction to such politically incorrect truth.

And birds can be at risk as well, getting caught in bad weather aloft or unable to find adequate food when it gets covered by winter weather.

I wonder, world wide, how many events like this are always happening?

I think if we actually investigated it, it would be a far more common occurrence than we realize. The world is a very big place, with billions of creatures on it. Probably right now, as I'm typing this, somewhere out there, there's violent electrical storms, blizzards, flash floods, tornadoes, horrible straight line winds, searing temperatures, etc, etc, etc. It just happens to be that the media has decided it's more important. Kind of like them deciding that right wing political rhetoric is responsible for lunatic killing sprees.

Could be true. However, the “its just reported more these days” or “they just decided to report it” rationalizations may catch us with our pants down someday on something important.

No, silly. It's because of CERN shooting all those particles around. Betcha they went right through the core of the Earth to where the creatures were found. Those birds and fish got hit with something.

Recall the so-called summer of the shark, when it seemed every beach had a man-killer devouring hapless swimmers.

Then someone did the math, and it turned out the number of attacks was slightly below average globally. It's just that the media was reporting them all in screaming detail, making it seem like an onslaught.

Hundreds of thousands of birds, fish, and small animals died just after the Icelandic volcano eruption.. nobody paid any attention at all, as they were only worried about getting muffy & biff back home from their French vacation..

Nature happens.

From dirtboy:

You're right of course, I've read about this phenomenon from different and more scholarly sources than the "main stream media" and it is not new that birds are falling out of the sky and fish are washing up on shore. There is nothing new under the sun.

Perhaps a little more this year than normal or perhaps not. You know what would be really weird? That is if exactly the same number of fish and birds died that way every year.

Just another example of the press and tin foil hat types creating news, sensationalism is all it is, scare the masses, shock 'em, even if you have to fudge the numbers to do it.

Rationalization?

No. I think that all the breathless reporting these past 15 years or so of man-made global warming has got me into the habit of not trusting everything that comes out in the media. I want more facts.

I'm questioning whether or not these occurrences are abnormally high? I do know for a fact that today's media absolutely relishes hype and sensitization!

Try reading the Book of Revelations in that Bible thingy. (1)
This mass die-off of Birds and Fish is part of the breaking of the 'Seven Seals'.

I'm new to this topic so don't flame me. I'm curious. It seems, from the reports I've read, that these incidents usually involve only one species. (That impression may have come from the way these incidents are reported and not from the true facts.)

If there were some poisoning, or some sort of shock, wouldn't multiple species in the same environment be affected?

Okay, let's the scientific reason you have instead just denying.

If it's just the cold explain why this has never happened before during cold snaps.

We need more science because science The Truth.

Take global warming science, for example. That is where the high priests of The Truth Temple made sure no sinful deniers were permitted to publish any conflicting data with The Truth. Give Algore and the UN your alms and they’ll cool the planet. Vote for Obammy and the seas will roll back.

Science is as corrupt as everything else with motives of personal profit and power. Sad, but that is The Truth.

That's because most 'naturalists' are not biologists and don't realize that deaths like this happen every day world wide and have been happenings since the dawn of time.

In fact, it is so common, you have places in the USA name 'Fishkill' etc.

If we can get EPA (or whoever) to put chips in the ears of all the American polar bears we can actually monitor such events for all of them ~ but not “in the woods” (there are no trees around there) but out on the ice.

I don't think this is being fulfilled yet, but, could be a precursor? I know we are heading into this time before Christs return. Could be in a week, could be another decade or more. I don't do date setting, I just know we are close.

Revelation 16:3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.

I've wondered the same thing. An example would be the swine flu thing. The media comes out with X number of people with the swine flu and then you ask, "how many people usually get the flu around this time?" and the number then turns out to normal. Just a manufactured crisis. Always ask questions and do your own research.
