This is off topic but in a way not. I just cant stand it anymore.
It all comes back to the grid and the need to silence the energy beast with a trillion tentacles once and for ever more. Its killing everything. This
concerns oil and gas exploration, another monster on the same level as nuclear power.
25 pod whales beached in Nelson along the northcoast of the South Island. In Feb last year 100+ whales beached themselves on Steward Island off the
southern tip of the South Island. Both of these areas have seen a massive increase in oil and gas (seismic) exploration. In fact, in the last 2 years
seismic exploration has exploded off the coast of NZ. These explorations produce seismic waves similar to an EQ, bursts of sound greater in volume
than standing next to the worlds biggest rocket as it took off. Over 200 decibels. 48 individual bursts every 7 to 10 seconds 24/7. This is what is
driving whales and dolphins up onto sand. The latest beaching found 7 dead and 18 were rescued, but the rescued whales have so far refused to head out
to sea and may beach themselves again. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure there is something out in the water that is scaring the sh!t out of
Seismic waves can travel around the globe underwater. Seismic explorations off the west coast of North America have beffuddled Russian subs off the
coast of Kamchatka before because of interference.
There are three prime areas where seismic exploration is going on. The Taranaki Basin located off the west coast of the North Island is the main focus
for oil and gas exploration and production in New Zealand. Off the southern tip of the South Island there has been a recent find in the last few years
in what may be one of the biggest plays on this planet, the Great South Basin. As well as these two plays there are enormous reserves of methane
hydrates everywhere with the most commercially promising deposits, the Hikurangi Margin, covering around 50,000 square kilometers.
Ending nuclear power is only part of the solution. Without changing how we live, how we consume, how we produce and destroy resources, ending nukes
will only mean we will have more of the above, and more coal pollution. As Human posts above, the people in Japan are learning to conserve. Now the
world needs to learn this as well even if it slows economic growth way down.
AS LONG AS BANKERS AND FAT CATS FROM THE ENERGY AND CHEMICAL SECTORS CONTROL OUR GOVERNMENTS WE ARE DOOMED. THEY ARE KILLING US AND THIS PLANET!!!!!
AND WE WILL NEVER END THIS NIGHTMARE AS LONG AS THE WORLD IS BASED ON A MONETARY SYSTEM THAT NEEDS TO PRODUCE AND GROW BIGGER AND BIGGER EVERY SECOND
OF EVERY DAY.
Its time to kill the grid or watch the earth die. And us too.
