forgive my thread skills.
I'm sorry am I hearing this right? Wind killed the fish? Where did this guy get his credibility? This is like in the 1900 s when the science
community's denial said meteorites could not have come from space but were spit out from volcanoes.
Anyone getting these dead fish chem tested? Or are we just deferring to the dumbest explanation I have ever heard?
Ok I just read the article It was a result of the Oxygen level being at zero.
Talbot said that when the water was checked this morning, the oxygen level was at zero. Fish can survive in water with a level 5 or higher.
Ok I used to work in a water testing lab running the BOD's Biological Oxygen Demand tests.
I know what this guy is talking about and what causes it.
When you introduce a bug (ie raw sewerage) to a water sample depending on how much nutrient Ie pollutant (for example CocaCola Amatils effluent.) Rich
in sugars and other yummies the bugs like they will consume it at an increased rate and use up all the oxygen in the water.
Therefore highly polluted water = low Oxygen. Now we get to the tested Oxygen level of 0 that is almost unheard of. What kind of wast was put in the
