Why Are Millions Of Fish Suddenly Dying In Mass Death Events All Over The Planet? Michael SnyderActivist Post Millions upon millions of fish are suddenly dying in mass death events all over the world, and nobody seems to know why it is happening.
In many of the news reports that are linked to below, locals are quoted as saying that they have never seen anything like this before. So is there a connection between all of the fish deaths that are now occurring all over the planet? If there is a connection, is there anything that we can do to stop the fish die-off?
Sadly, because the big mainstream news networks in the United States have been virtually silent about this phenomenon, most Americans have absolutely no idea that it is happening. Please share the list posted below with as many people as you can. -July 18, 2013: 20 acres of fish ponds full of dead fish in Shandong, China -July 18, 2013: Hundreds of dead Stingrays wash ashore in Veracruz, Mexico. Fish deaths in Olway Brook, Llansoy, are investigated. 30 August 2013Last updated at 12:22 ET An investigation is under way after more than a thousand fish were found dead in a Monmouthshire stream.
The dead fish found in the Olway Brook near Llansoy include trout, eel and lamprey. Natural Resources Wales said a suspected source of pollution had been "identified and stopped".

Coral reefs heading for fishing and climate crisis. 23 February 2011Last updated at 14:37 By Richard Black Environment correspondent, BBC News Healthy coral reefs provide a living for about 275 million people, with many more dependent on them Three-quarters of the world's coral reefs are at risk due to overfishing, pollution, climate change and other factors, says a major new assessment.
Reefs at Risk Revisited collates the work of hundreds of scientists and took three years to compile. The biggest threat is exploitative fishing, the researchers say, though most reefs will be feeling the impact of climate change within 20 years. But, they say, there are measures that can be taken to protect at least some.

Severn tidal barrage axed as nuclear power plants proposed - News. The UK has scrapped plans for a £30 billion Severn tidal project, claiming it would be 'very costly to deliver and very challenging to attract the necessary investment from the private sector alone'.
Tidal power. These work rather like a hydro-electric scheme, except that the dam is much bigger. A huge dam (called a "barrage") is built across a river estuary. When the tide goes in and out, the water flows through tunnels in the dam. If one was built across the Severn Estuary, the tides at Weston-super-Mare would not go out nearly as far - there'd be water to play in for most of the time. Pump Carbon Dioxide Underground - Science News. GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A team of researchers representing government, industry and academia has launched a test project in which carbon dioxide produced by a natural gas processing plant is being disposed of by injecting it far beneath the ground.
Officials announced Thursday that the test is under way at a site in Otsego County's Charlton Township, about 10 miles east of Gaylord in the northern part of the Lower Peninsula. It is one of more than 20 such projects taking place around the country. • Click here to visit FOXNews.com's Natural Science Center.

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART ~ Mike Rowland Ecology Drives the Worldwide Distribution of Human Diseases. Identifying the factors underlying the origin and maintenance of the latitudinal diversity gradient is a central problem in ecology, but no consensus has emerged on which processes might generate this broad pattern.
Interestingly, the vast majority of studies exploring the gradient have focused on free-living organisms, ignoring parasitic and infectious disease (PID) species. Here, we address the influence of environmental factors on the biological diversity of human pathogens and their global spatial organization. Using generalized linear multivariate models and Monte Carlo simulations, we conducted a series of comparative analyses to test the hypothesis that human PIDs exhibit the same global patterns of distribution as other taxonomic groups.
We found a significant negative relationship between latitude and PID species richness, and a nested spatial organization, i.e., the accumulation of PID species with latitude, over large spatial scales.
