Here is a You Tube vid from a few weeks ago that documents the extinction level event that is happening in the Pacific with Starfish and many other sea life. These tide pools are usually places where you can go and see all kinds of sea life and plant life when the tide is low, but you can see in the video as he points out, the rocks are dry, not even slippery like they should be, and there is absolutely no life. He says he has been documenting these tide pools every couple of years and it's getting worse each time, until this time around, it appears completely DEAD!



Make sure to read the comments on this video. Many eyewitness accounts from folks living along the California coast who say the same things about other tide pools, in Monterey and Big Sur, and elsewhere. Very sad. The video title suggests that it may be Fukushima, but, he says one of his documented videos was taken in 2010 and he was seeing the dying off of sea life in these tide pools already at that time. That would be prior to Fukushima. More likely, the rapid acceleration of global warming that began between 2007 and 2009.

Here are some of the comments


I live down the coast below Big Sur. Cayucos by the sea. I check our tide pools. The sea anomies, the things you push your finger into, are way, way, less, but still some left. Way less starfish, no more tiny octopus, in which were hard to find.



I am in the area, for past 26 years and when I lived in Carmel between 91-93 I remember the tide pools and the big starfish, mussels and the abalone.



Just 6 years ago lovers point had 1000ands of starfish



Orange county tide pools look about the same. I was in Laguna Beach yesterday and they looked almost completely barren.



My heart is broken seeing this. Spent a large part of my childhood playing in those pools. In the 70's&80's there was sooooo much life. This is sickening!!!!


Why isn't this going viral? Why isn't this in the news? Our oceans are dying and no one is paying attention!

Whatever the cause may be... Fukushima or climate change, it's very real and very concerning.

Yep, change in climate has caused mass extinctions throughout the aeons. Humans are going to have to learn to adapt to the changing climate. Hopefully adapting doesn't meaning taxing the pants off the hard working middle class, and stuffing the pockets of the well connected "green" profiteers and politicians.

So long as you don't have to pay your fair share... so long to the oceans. Without life in the oceans, how long do you think life elsewhere can sustain?

So long to the oceans, lol, right. Wasn't the arctic supposed to be ice free by now? Enough of the apocalyptic exaggeration, it was always wrong before, and it will be wrong again.

Dude, did you watch the video? How do you explain the loss of sea life in these tide pools? This is happening everywhere. Back to the carbon tax though right? Blah, blah, blah. Who cares about carbon taxing, let's talk about the tide pools.

Could also be a massive disruption in the food chain, massive harvesting of red crill,Asian countries raping the pacific (I've seen them 50km off my coast at night) added with warming of the currents,or change in flow direction? In saying that oz us having a heatwave and here in nz our non existent summer this year follows our hottest ever year,last year. I'm a fisherman and I've noticed things changing. First time ever seeing Portuguese manowar jellyfish on west coast beaches this year.

I think this is more about the new fire fighting chemicals they have been using to fight the fires, the new more expensive patented chemicals seem to have a worse effect on the fish than the old type. That is what I read in a scientific research article about a year and a half ago.

The large amount of medicines peed out of the people taking them also go into the sewers and these meds are not destroyed by the water treatment plants. They also have an effect on the sea life. They are causing them to do stupid things and wind up dead. The unnatural medicine chemistry is a problem.

Yeah, a tax is useful to a point, in that it only goes so far, such as making it really expensive for companies to be dirty. Outside of that, everyday people have to actually BE less filthy to protect the environment. As it stands, people would rather go out in the boondocks and dump their crap instead of having it properly disposed of, aside from the chemical dumpers who stay home & flush it down their neighborhood drains with a hose. Not all drains go to a treatment plant (ours doesn't) Thought one of our neighbors was going to get jumped by the rest, idiot changed his truck's oil, then flushed out the pan down the street drain. It did not go over well.

Oh dear god, this is terrible news...If we don't make changes now I fear there will be no going back.

Most likely it is a cyclical thing and life will bounce back. It happens everywhere.

The oceans temp has not risen in any detrimental amount since we started keeping track.

If something un-natural is killing the tide pools, look to local pollution for the culprit.

I totally agree with you here, Ricky, that these chemicals play a part, but the oceans are very vast and I'm not sure that this could have such a large scale drastic change on the oceans, or this quickly at least. IMO, probably more to do with warming water temps, especially the deeper depths.

Because most folks are worried about just paying the bills, drinking on off time, watching dancing with the stars and sports. The "Rat Race" has blinders on.

We seem to be a reactionary society instead of a forethought one.

People don't seem to care as long as they have bling, food, alcohol, and sports. Take those 2 of those away and people will start to pay attention, take all of them away and they'll want a war.

All the way up the coast? And it's not just the Cali coast that is seeing changes, as another poster from NZ, a fisherman, nonetheless, said he's seeing sea changes over there as well.

Local pollution is every industrial byproduct worldwide.

It's like a turd in the punch bowel, people can BS themselves that it tastes alright, but everyone can still see and smell a turd.

Maybe a little of both. Looks like similar is beginning to happen north of California as well with ocean wildlife for example. That's, so far or at least reported, due to the water is warmer.



Moore says the warmer waters have already caused ecosystem changes. For one, it cut short the Dungeness crab season along the West Coast last year. Moore: "We also saw changes in some of the bird and fish populations in Puget Sound, with a very poor year for Pacific herring, and also for a sea bird that is common in Puget Sound."

There's also the "wasting disease".

SEATTLE — After months of research, scientists have identified the pathogen at the heart of the starfish wasting disease that’s been killing starfish by the millions along the Pacific shores of North America, according to research published Monday.

There, as similar to in California, the radiation being suspected as well by more alt media.

I live on the West coast and I eat a lot of fresh seafood fished off the coast... I do wonder the risk, especially when we see events like this happening on that same coast... I eat a lot of crab... aye aye aye..

I find myself, ever since Fukushima, only buying North Atlantic fish if it's out of the sea, but I live in the lake land areas of northern Wisconsin where we have the best Walleye, yum.

The quantity of the sewage going into the ocean is insane, all filled with antidepressants and all sorts of settling chemistry. The sewage plants do not take out nearly as much of these meds as people think, in fact the present systems take out very little. They are working on a way to remove them and have found a viable way but are having a little problem with cost and ability to treat a huge cities waste. You can drink the water leaving the sewer plant they say, but you will get buzzed if you do.
