NOAA: Carnage along the west coast exploding since 2011

By Gary Walton

Thousands of starving and dead seabirds have been shored up along the coast of Alaska, prompting scientists to investigate the unusually high mortality rate of one of the Arctic's most abundant birds. Around 8,000 dead common murres were found last week on a one-mile stretch of beach, 60 miles south of Anchorage, the true amount is thought to be more than 100,000.

The common murres have been found starving, too weak to fly, and have come inland to forage nearer the coast.

After examining around 100 carcasses, scientists said there has been no evidence of pollution or disease, but rather the birds were emaciated - they had no stomach contents or body fat.

Higher than usual mortality rates have also affected marine life by the billion, fish, sea otters, fur seals, whales, crabs, dolphins, walrus, lobster, mussels, starfish, turtles and many more have been dying in alarming numbers along the coastal waters of north America.

Dead birds and sea animals have been found along the north American coast from Mexico to Alaska since March last year say the scientists but the death of marine animals have been increasing along the coast since 2011.

A press release from the USFWS Alaska Migratory Bird Management said that the "die-offs of the little birds is unusually large" and is likely to be related to the warmer than usual sea temperatures and El Nino weather phenomena.

El-Nino is the latest of many explanations given for the unprecedented loss of marine life along the coast, in the past experts have blamed :- Cold water, a lack of food, an enormous toxic algae bloom stretching from Alaska to Mexico, a massive methane leak in the Pacific, US underwater weapon testing, and sea quakes.

The name Fukushima which is on most people's lips is never mentioned by the media, government or the experts, even though between 300 and 800 tonnes of Cesium-134 has leaked into the Pacific every day since the disaster struck in 2011.

Indeed, scientists last year recorded radiation levels 50 times higher than normal along parts of the west coast.

A government funded scientist Ken Buesseler of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution claims the amounts are perfectly safe, what he doesn't say is, if the stricken nuclear plant keeps leaking radiation, which it is, the amounts will keep rising.

Maybe the reason is not Fukushima, I don't have any evidence to say it is but....The world environment organisations are not telling us the truth for fear of losing funding.

Fukushima or not, 75% of the world's fish are now depleted, these numbers cannot be reversed, for instance, for every pound of fish caught on this planet, five pound of untargeted species are trapped in nets, turtles, whales and sharks don't stand a chance, 40 to 50 million sharks a year are killed this way.

Our oceans are close to collapse, NOAA are claiming there will be no fish left in the oceans by the year 2048.

Last year 30 billion animals were taken out of the world's oceans, it can't recover, fish don't multiply that quick.

Back to the west coast of north America, I have done some basic research, since 2011 I have been able to find 140 reports of marine life die-offs along the west coast, 20 of them were sea bird deaths and 120, fish, whales, dolphins etc.
In 2011, the year of the Fukushima disaster I found 8 reports of marine life die-offs along the west coast.

** In 2012, I found 9 marine life die-off reports and 2 sea bird die-offs.

** In 2013 I found a further 21 marine life die-offs and another 2 sea bird die-offs.

** In 2014 I found 31 recorded marine life die-off and a further 2 sea bird die-offs.

** In 2015 a massive 48 recorded marine life die-offs along with 14 recorded sea bird die-offs, and a very disturbing find further south where a record 337 dead whales were found along a small part of the coast of Chile.

At the beginning of 2016. 8,000 common murres have been found dead along a 1 mile stretch of coast in Alaska, the real death toll is thought to be more than 100,000, so even with my meagre attempt at research it's easy to see that since the Fukushima disaster the problem has increased enormously but a very powerful El-Nino event has also warmed up the East Pacific, however with the El-Nino event set to end this winter it will be interesting to see if the deaths continue.

There are about 2.8 million breeding common murres in 230 Alaska colonies, with a worldwide population of 13 to 20.7 million birds.

The monitored seabird populations of our world have dropped 70 percent since the 1950s, a loss of around 250 million birds in 60 years, or more than four million a year.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 

It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

 It is in season April through May and the fruit wei…

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
