40,000 'devil' crabs wash up on Kent coast after dying from hypothermia in freezing sea

Thousands of dead crabs have washed up along the Kent coast, with environmental experts believing the cold weather in Britain is to blame.

The Velvet swimming crabs - also called devil crabs - are thought to be victims of Britain's coldest December in 120 years, which left sea temperatures much lower than average.

So... we here cold water/weather is to blame for these deaths.. and they say the same about the chesapeake...


So is this just a global chill?

It's really having a heck of an effect on the wildlife... that's for sure!

Anyone from Kent who can comment on this? Do you have anything like this in your historic memory?

More warnings from nature.

i have always heard a crabs will pop it's legs off before it freezes, is that the case here?

Ah! So we're finally in the starts of a pole shift. Only makes sense that the start of the New Year. But it started when Sagittarius moved into Capricorn, plus there has been extreme weathers. Watch next year, it'll be hotter, then the next will be something we cannot fathom as 3rd dimensional beings with 2nd dimensional eye sight with soul matrices.

Something big will be going down for sure.

I am really starting to wonder if this has something to do with The Atlantic Current.
Obviously, its not isolated to The U.S.

I dont know, birds are higher up on the food chain, but it seems that many toxins that kill birds also
can kill fish, and such.

I'm also thinking the same thing... I wish there was a ThermoHayline Conveyor measurement we could check...

I think its rather like the media to admit that The Atlantic Current is changed drastically now,
and here on ATS we have been discussing it for the entire year.

Finally a team of scientist published a report a few days ago. Its official!

Could be that show depicting the current flows changing. " Day after tomorrow " was the movie I think. maybe something along those lines?

I think you are right personally

The atmosphere temperature does *NOT* drive the ocean floor temperature. The only two ways the ocean temperature would be getting colder is because of a change in the ocean current (in this case, the gulf stream), or glacial melt pouring fresh water into the ocean.

I can't get my head around this, it's not been that cold down here on the coast, nor is the average surface temperature of the sea any colder than normal..

Will see if I can chat to any of the crabbers around here and see what they have to say..

Free crab meat sounds delicious...

I wonder what would happen if you ate these dead crabs?

I'm sure someone can eat one and see what happens...

i'm no scientist, but the original story from the USG stated that it was " Fireworks" and yet they couldn't account for the dead fish all over the globe?

The only logical explanation is that there is some sort of shift not only the " poles " but in the air flow current from the Atlantic. The Atlantic is suggested to be the main cause of air flow currents that ultimately decide on weather conditions. We could be experiencing the next ice age?

this might explain a bit? :


Fluctuations in the amount of insolation (incoming solar radiation) are the most likely cause of large-scale changes in Earth's climate during the Quaternary. In other words, variations in the intensity and timing of heat from the sun are the most likely cause of the glacial/interglacial cycles. This solar variable was neatly described by the Serbian scientist, Milutin Milankovitch, in 1938. There are three major components of the Earth's orbit about the sun that contribute to changes in our climate. First, the Earth's spin on its axis is wobbly, much like a spinning top that starts to wobble after it slows down. This wobble amounts to a variation of up to 23.5 degrees to either side of the axis. The amount of tilt in the Earth's rotation affects the amount of sunlight striking the different parts of the globe. The greater the tilt, the stronger the difference in seasons (i.e., more tilt equals sharper differences between summer and winter temperatures). The range of motion in the tilt (from left-of-center to right-of-center and back again) takes place over a period of 41,000 years. As a result of a wobble in the Earth's spin, the position of the Earth on its elliptical path changes, relative to the time of year. This phenomenon is called the precession of equinoxes. The cycle of equinox precession takes 23,000 years to complete. In the growth of continental ice sheets, summer temperatures are probably more important than winter.


Also something interesting :


The geological requirements for an Ice Age are the presence of a large landmass around the Polar Circle and extending southward. A look at the globe, or world map, shows that those conditions exist in the Northern Hemisphere, but not in the Southern. Therefore, the important thing to look at is the climate conditions in northern and far northern regions. Some of the indicators: • Since 1980, there has been an advance of more than 55% of the 625 mountain glaciers under observation by the World Glacier Monitoring group in Zurich. (From 1926 to 1960, some 70-95% of these glaciers were in retreat.) • A comparison of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 1965 and 1990 Plant Hardiness Zone Maps, shows a southward change of one zone, or 10°F, between 1965 and 1990. • Careful measurements of the oxygen isotope ratios in German oaks, which are rigorously calibrated to temperature data, show a 1°C temperature decline from 1350 to 1800 (the lowpoint of the Little Ice Age). Temperature thereafter increased by 1°C from 1800 to 1930, and has been declining since then. • From weather stations in the Alps, and in the Nordic countries, we find the temperature decline since 1930 is also 1°C. • Satellite measurements have shown growth in the height and breadth of the huge Greenland ice sheet, the largest in the Northern Hemisphere


So much for your Global warming theories!

Anyone with a half lick of sense knew that was a fabrication of lies!

Well we have the Gulf Stream, and now The Atlantic Current.

I just want to add that according to the specialists this year has been great for Britains wildlife, since we have seen a return to traditional English weather including sea surface temperatures.

I'll pin this link from late Dec here...

from Linky just in case someone comes out with rubbish that any unexplained events are related to the cold, when they have already said the opposit, hope you don't mind OP

“For the first time in a generation we have experienced a traditional year of weather and our wildlife has mostly responded favourably,” said Matthew Oates, the National Trust’s nature conservation advisor.

“A cold winter enabled wildlife to hibernate properly while a warm spring and early summer created ideal conditions for insects and led to bumper autumn berry crops in our orchards, woods and hedgerows,” Mr Oates said.

For those that can load this page there is a video of the crabs showing on the web site of our local TV news station.

Link to video page

I briefly heard on one of the other local news channels that starfish were also washing up with the crabs.

I'm 30 odd miles from the coast there but have no vehicle and not about to test my luck with public transport to go take a look.


cheers all

Yes.

I live in Kent, not far from the said area.

see this diagram of changes in current;



results reveal a sharply declining influence of the Labrador Current (colder, less saline, and nutrient-poor) in favor of Gulf Stream waters (warmer, saltier, nutrient-rich) since the 1970s, compared to the previous 1,800 years.

See reports from 2005....

"...imminent reversal of the earth's magnetic field"

The Earth's magnetic North pole has been rapidly moving, too.
