Ocean death worsening around Peru? thousands of crustaceans wash up dead off the coast of Lima

May 26, 2012PERUThousands of crustaceans were found dead off the coast of Lima following the mystery mass death of dolphins and pelicans, the Peruvian Navy said Friday. The cause of death is under investigation, said Industry and Fishing Minister Gladys Triveno, warning that “it would be premature to give a reason for this phenomenon.” The Navy said it presented a report on the find to the Agency of Environmental Evaluation and Control to determine the cause. Biologist Yuri Hooker of Cayetano Heredia University said the species found on Pucusana Beach, 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of Lima, was a type of red krill about three centimeters (1.2 inches) long. “They live mostly along the coast of Chile up to the coast of northern Peru. What is happening is that these crustaceans are being affected by the warming of Pacific waters in the north of the country,” he said, adding that the phenomenon occurs “with some frequency.” Hooker explained that the warmer temperatures led the shrimp-like creatures that usually live far away from the coast to move in closer to land, where they died. Nearly 900 dolphins washed up along Peru’s northern coast between February and April. A government study said the marine mammals died of natural causes, while environmental groups insist the massive toll was linked to offshore oil exploration in the area. Peruvian officials have suggested that the dolphins, along with 5,000 dead sea birds — mostly pelicans — died due to the effects of rising temperatures in Pacific waters, including the southern migration of fish eaten by the birds. –Yahoo News

    What about radiation from Fukashima permiating the waters of the Pacific in areas that Pelicans, Dolphins, and Crustaceans have inhabited in the last year? Can we investigate this possibility
    given the enormous influence of the nuclear power agencies to
    perpetuate their industry and hide the problems associated with
    radiation?

      Why do people include Fukushima in these mass deaths?

      These mass deaths started January 2011, – Japan earthquake happened March 2011.

      How would you explain the mass death PRIOR to Fukushima? It’s clear as a day, that these events are the VERY SAME.

      I just believe this is something divine. And those awake, should be ready!

        I don’t think it’s a devine happening….but I believe those in ancient times experienced something similar and wrote about it and knew it was cyclical and it would happen again.
        Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, report evidence of pronounced changes in the earth’s climate that can be tracked in cycles of ocean conditions over thousands of years. These cycles reveal that Earth is currently in a period in which a natural rise in global temperatures – combined with warming from the greenhouse effect – will push the planet through an era of rapid global warming. This warming cycle is affecting marine life. Many won’t be able to adapt. I agree we need to wake up to what’s happening and I believe we can get some answers from our ancient writings.

    • it is fukushima. this is what is happening as it moves up the food chain. people dont listen to me about this being the demise of our planet because theyve been duped into being split into too many causes. support ron paul, end gmo, stop the nwo, sunflares, america being a dictatorship. yes those are concerns but moot if this disaster doesnt get fixed in nect 6 months (although japan says it will fukushima fixed by december…….2014!!!!!!) so i hope these idiot of the world all fix the issues. get ron paul as president. end the nwo. stop gmo monsanto etc. then once they do the whole planet and everything else involved on it dies from fallout! im so mad that those who think they are awake are dreaming and being misled into the maze created by the elite to keep us from uniting for one cause at a time in the order of urgency. this should be the only cause right now!!!!!!!!!

  5. ATTENTION EVERYONE PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS….REFLECT ON IT…..AND UNDERSTAND THE DISTRACTIONS FROM WHAT IS MOST NEEDED ON THIS PLANET.

    (THIS IS FROM A CONVO I WAS HAVING WITH A FELLOW GULF OF MEXICO ANTI BP SUPPORTER AND WANTED EVERYONE TO READ IT)

    Mother earth is like a human in a hospital with a lot of damage/trauma. Of the many problems she has they can be compared like injuries of her body and the planet. So lets do a comparison. The Occupy movement is like an infected hair. The illuminatti is a flesh eating bacteria thats just formed and started to grow. The fact that the world is ruled by wealthy power hungry people intent on destroying it and ruling what may be left with absolute control. The BP and other oil spills /chemical pollutants are like a virus slowly spreading in the body. But the nuclear fallout from Fukushima is like heart attack and the patient is dying on the table from it? So which one do you fix first? The heart attack to keep her alive and then be able to cure the other problems in order of danger. Yes the BP and chem spills are tragic. But right now Fukushima is 280 times worse than Chernobyl and going up 10 percent every month. The amount thats leaked into the ocean is a certain death for all the seas and oceans around the world. Due to its leakage of millions of tons of waste radiating it and many millions more to come each year it has become an infected wound and is going to die and be removed from her soon. The ocean is dead already we just haven’t seen the problem yet because it may take a few more years for it to spread throughout all the waterways.The air is radiated but hasnt destroyed the land mass of the earth….yet. Its rains have begun to though by falling onto every land then into every river and lake and mutate our plant life while exposing them and us.But it isnt past that breaking point yet I hope. If we plan to survive as a planet we must accept whats been done. Since the ocean is already terminal we must push Fukushima into the seas where nuclear subs can contain it. There is no other way at this point. Theyre not able to do what they did in 3mile island or in chernobyl to stop it from constant destruction! They cant send humans or robots into there to stop it. And when fuel reactor 4 goes it will destroy the earth in less time than you could imagine!!!. So while i support your causes and am very aware of the true fatcs of the BP spill. As a fellow gulf man in Floridas west coast and avid fisherman always in the water before I got sick for the past year my life was in the seas. But sadly now we need to cut our losses and realize the oceans arent going to make it through at this point anymore. I look at things on a grand scale and all this stuff were divided on in trying to make the world better and safer hasnt worked because we wont unite due to arrogance or locality to the region with the problem. We tend to think what we fight for is the most important. Yet we need to fight them all equally. First off we need to fix the fukushima plant asap. Everything else can be fixed after that (if there is an after that!)! I support all activists in every manor of doing good for the world but right now we have become arrogant because in our minds we believe (insert issue here) is worth their lives to fight. Meanwhile were being distracted by the bigger invisible problem that seems to get the least amount of help from freedom fighters and free thinkers. Basically of all the problems in the world combined do not compare in whats going on in Japan right now. Were all slowly being killed. Yet the speed of death for us and the earth is inevitable if we dont act in the next 6 mos. (btw japan says it wont even be able to start fixing the problem in japan until december……..2013!!!!) so either enjoy what remains of our lives and have fun, for agnda 21 has been successfully accomplished while our feeble brains are distracted in too many ways to list. Or unite so we can fix the worst problem at hand then worry about what is left afterwords and try to recoup and survive. So if you think about it in a true open mind and with rational thought than you will see that were short on time and people aware of the truth. Which is why the BP spill (all be it horrible) is still just a pimple in comparison. As humans we will eventually kill ourselves off….but we can do the honorable thing and let the earth live on. Its truly one of a kind and maybe through evolution in another billion years the planet will have human like people on it again that will learn from our mistakes (then again it seems we never learn. So i ask….no i beg of you to look at the big picture here! FOR IF WE DO NOT END FUKUSHIMA NOW WITH DRASTIC MEASURES THERE WILL BE NO OTHER PROBLEMS TO FIX AND NO PEOPLE TO FIX IT!!!!

    The warmer the water gets, the less oxygen in it. Watch a pan of water as it comes to a boil sometime. Now add nitrogen run off from farming, and watch the algae grow that consumes more oxygen from the water. Sprinkle in some radiation from Japan, metropolitan pollution and sewage dumping, manufacturing pollution, a few oil well leaks, leaking ships dumping their sewage too and you have a real nasty bowl of soup. Then add in what mother nature upchucks from under sea volcanoes in the form of sulfuric acid and heat, maybe a few ancient bacteria from the polar ice melt – and don’t forget the methane released from the ice melt, etc. Wow, it all adds up to one big nasty bowl of soup. When it all gets mixed up and the smallest of fish down near the krell level start getting sick and everything up the food chain feeds on the smaller ones all the way up to the whales. So then what do we have left after the Japs rape the sea with their trollers to feed the homeland the poisoned sick fish. NOTHING but a stinking pond that you don’t even want rain water from. Man is the cancer of the Earth! Population must be controlled! Mother Nature is preparing to control the population, but man just may beat her to it.

    yes there is the possibility that the oil platforms have been leaking and doing serious damage to the undersea environment. There is also the strong possibility that (think of all the earthquakes) the shaking off Chile and down thru South American waters, that undersea vents have become active and maybe spewing noxious gasses. Whatever the cause in the temporal world, we must remember that the spiritual is coming to full fillment in Christ Jesus. I am very saddened to hear of the deaths of the most beautiful creatures. Of course our ocean food supply chain is going to be seriously damaged as well.

I think the full events in Revelation are yet to unfold as many are connected with a celestial upheaval foretold in the book of Revelation…so, to answer you question, the ‘unimagible worst‘ is still yet to come. However, planetary ecology is being severely stressed by these events. This event is also troubling because these are deep ocean floor creatures so whatever is afoot may be emanating from the sea floor. Have you read any of my books by the way?

      • In 2003 while lobbying leaders to put together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France’s President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they must be defeated. In Genesis and Ezekiel Gog and Magog are forces of the Apocalypse who are prophesied to come out of the north and destroy Israel unless stopped. The Book of Revelation took up the Old Testament prophesy: “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle … and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

        Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac: “This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”.

        The story of the conversation emerged only because the Elysée Palace, baffled by Bush’s words, sought advice from Thomas Römer, a professor of theology at the University of Lausanne. Four years later, Römer gave an account in the September 2007 issue of the university’s review, Allez savoir. The article apparently went unnoticed, although it was referred to in a French newspaper. The story has now been confirmed by Chirac himself in a new book, published in France in March, by journalist Jean Claude Maurice. Chirac is said to have been stupefied and disturbed by Bush’s invocation of Biblical prophesy to justify the war in Iraq and “wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs”. In the same year he spoke to Chirac, Bush had reportedly said to the Palestinian foreign minister that he was on “a mission from God” in launching the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and was receiving commands from the Lord.
