BS. Go ahead and show me any week in the worlds history where even HALF of the events that have been reported this week took place.
Happens all the time, my foot. No one is saying animal die offs don't happen, but to have me believe that something of this scale, range, and
magnitude is a common occurrence, that is asking a little too much. In fact, for anyone to believe such would have to be stuck in a bubble.
Why do you have to be rude just because I don't agree with you? I'm often wrong and so is everyone else who is not lying about it. If something
comes along to prove me wrong, I'll admit it here just as I usually do. My comments were agreeing with the experts words in the article, not an
attack on anyone else.
I tend to believe for instance an expert that works with Wildlife issues as a career before I believe wild theories propagated out of thin air on the
Internet. So far we have seen just what the article said. HAARP did it. Global Warming did it. The Sun did it. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,and....................
It makes perfect sense to me that unusual weather would cause most of what we have seen. I've actually seen this in places I've lived. For instance
the Snake River in Southeast Idaho. There is a stretch there that every few years all the Trout die from too little oxygen in the water, but the
Sucker Fish do just fine. If that happened today would you not consider it evidence for your theory? If you did you would be wrong. In Yellowstone one
year they had a huge kill of native Cutthroat Trout. Turned out to be a parasite. If that happened to happen today? The crabs happened last year also
and they know why, so that can't be factored in. If the same thing were actually killing all the animals in these stories, they would all die of the
same thing in the same way.
The bird thing is weird and it may take awhile before they figure it out completely. When they do figure it out though and if it turns out to be just
a normal event from a normal cause do you think those spreading the hype will accept it. No they won't. They will just call perfectly decent people
liars and go on their merry way with their own theory without any proof.
Are you aware that is the eighth time in the last twenty years there has been such a bird kill in just Arkansas? That came from a State Biologist on
an interview the other day. Who would know more about that than him? Not me or anyone else not in that field in that area.
This is a big world and these stories are about a relatively tiny number of animal deaths. Go back and add this all up and you will find out that all
told, factoring in all stories posted, it is still just a group of small events.
I assure you I'm not stuck in a bubble. Why don't you just allow me to have my beliefs and I'll allow you to have yours without attacking each
other. We can debate the issue and I enjoy that, but I've grown tired of people, including myself a time or three, posting angry attacks instead of
I honestly believe this is a result of hysteria caused by an information overload. It's a domino effect. A local story gets picked up nationally
because it is a slow news day. It's interesting enough that when it goes out on the wire that it grows legs in world news. The theories start flying
all over the Internet with people treating Blogs from who knows who like valid news sources. Web Sites that earn their income off strange events and
catering to the Gloom and Doom crowd chime in with their theories. Next thing you know, people who are prone to panic do. I think it is that
Six months from now it will be just another interesting event from the past. I could be wrong. I'm hope I'm not. I'm not going to panic over it
though based on these few events.
