There is an average of nearly 3 mass animal die-offs (that we know about) somewhere on the planet every day. Three years ago, the average was .5 per
day. This is a definite increase in mass animal die-offs and should be of great concern to everyone. This is the next chapter of my book, Fever
Rising, that examines this phenomenon. To go back to the rest of the chapters, here is the link to the last thread about volcanoes and at the
beginning of that thread, you'll see the links to all the previous chapters.

Chapter 14: The Dangerous Gas Theory and Mass Animal Die-offs
Hosea 4:3 ...'Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls
of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'
The numbers are astonishing. All over the world animals are dying in great numbers. We are seeing on average more than two mass animal die-offs
somewhere on the planet each and every day. Whales, dolphins, birds, cattle, deer and millions of fish washing up on the shores and the reasons vary
from disease outbreak to algae blooms.
Of course animals have been dying throughout the ages but nothing like this. There are consistent die-offs every day, whereby, more often than not, we
read about officials stating, “Like we’ve never seen before.” It’s getting scary and in my opinion, not enough people are paying attention to
In the year 2013 there were 798 die offs. That’s 2.19 die-offs per day, up from an average of 1.27 die-offs per day in 2012 when there were 464
total die-offs. In the year 2011, there were only 145 known mass animal die-offs. That’s an average of .4 per day.
To kick off the year 2014, the month of January saw 69 known die-offs for an average of 2.26 per day, a slight increase already from the total average
of the year of 2013.
2011 145 die-offs .4 per day
2012 464 die-offs 1.27 per day
2013 798 die-offs 2.19 per day
These numbers are staggering. If there is any one of the phenomena featured in this theory that is a substantial indicator of something terribly
wrong, it’s these mass-animal die-offs. They indicate something is seriously wrong with our planet and that we, humanity, face a grave and dire
threat. Whether you accept the theory that I present, you should in no way discount the relevance of these mass animal die-offs. They just can’t be
brushed away as ‘normal’ or insignificant. These things don’t happen like this. Whether I’m correct with the dangerous gas theory or not,
something is amiss and it’s evident that our seas and air are polluted in some unnatural way that is detrimental to animal life. If it’s killing
off the animal life of our world, how much longer before humans begin dying off in mass?
Here are the links to a website that keeps track of these animal die-offs. I suggest you visit these pages and see for yourself the countless known
mass animal die-offs. They are truly alarming.
And here is the link for tracking of 2014 die-offs
Many of these die-offs can be attributed to disease, which is still alarming just the same, but most are unexplained and involve the deaths of many
animals very quickly. Whether in the sea, in the air, or on the ground, I believe that many of these die-offs are caused by methane and hydrogen
Even the die-offs attributed to disease still come back to this theory. Read the next chapter about the dangerous gas theory in relation to disease
outbreak for a more definitive explanation. For this chapter, we’ll take a look at the other causes directly related to the gas plumes and
I believe there are two main causes of fish kill. Oxygen depletion and the actual gas plumes themselves. Large plumes of gas are emitting from the
ocean floor when frozen methane hydrates melt or when earth tectonic movement causes large fissures and cracks at the bottom discharging methane and
hydrogen sulfide from below. These plumes drift to the surface where they sometimes emit into the air as well. As these plumes are discharging below,
they either kill fish instantly or drive them into shallower, colder waters where they die from the different water temperatures they aren’t used to
or they die from the lack of oxygen in these new waters. In some cases, larger species actually beach themselves, such as all the pilot whales that
have been swimming into shallow canals in Florida and are unable to swim out.
Many of these plumes will reach the air killing off birds in mass die-offs when the birds fly through the plume filled with high concentrations of
gas. Many bird die-offs had witnesses describe the birds appearing to have been poisoned or thrashing about and appearing to act sickly, but in these
cases, a virus wouldn’t affect such large groups of birds instantaneously. A mass-poisoning would.
Methane gases will normally continue to rise up in the atmosphere while hydrogen sulfide plumes will drift around and eventually settle back down to
the surface because they are heavier-than-air. These plumes are the source of many fires and explosions we hear about but are also the source of mass
poisonings of land animals. Although these are much rarer than the bird and fish die-offs, they are occurring, and these I suspect, are the cause when
officials have no idea what killed off larger land animals in a sudden-death situation. Disease can only be blamed on these die-offs when they occur
over several days or weeks, not all at once.
How do the fish die from lack of oxygen as was the case in this South Carolina fish die-off?
Fish kill in Myrtle Beach leaves researchers guessing
From the Sun News, Jan. 17, 2013
By Greg Holshouser
Thousands of Atlantic menhaden – a baitfish that plays a key role in the South Atlantic ecosystem – were found washed up on the beaches in the
south area of the Grand Strand on Tuesday and Wednesday, leaving S.C. Department of Natural Resources investigators trying to determine the cause.
From DeBordieu, a private community just north of Georgetown, northward to Pawley’s Island, a rough estimate of 30,000 to 40,000 menhaden in the
6-to-8 inch range were spread along the beach and first spotted by beachgoers taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather.
Notice the key words in the story…beachgoers took advantage of the ‘unseasonably warm weather.’ Warm temperatures are one of the causes of
oxygen depletion. This would be more common during the summer because water holds less oxygen as warmer waters causes bacteria to grow faster. Oxygen
can deplete within hours but in this case, it was winter, yet they were experiencing unseasonably warm weather.
