Here's something interesting:
An anatomy professor suggested a connection between beached whales and earthquakes.
Interesting article. Also interesting is the fact that it was written one year before the Japanese quake. Dont know if Kumar predicted that one or
I think its possible that the Cetaceans are responding to future earth changes as they are the most sensitive species on earth. But personally I have
done research on sonar as used by the oil and gas industry and it's effect on cetaceans and the evidence is pretty overwhelming that they are forced
out of the water when trapped between the explosive bursts and the shore.
I also found that low frequency sonar can add pressure to fault lines and increase the likely hood of a locked point giving way. And there are massive
sonar projects going on along the ring of fire, especially off the east coast of Japan and New Zealand/Tasmania. Its anybodies guess.
Here are some quotes from the story;
Back in 2004, Dr. Arunachalam Kumar, an anatomy professor at the medical college in Mangalore, India captured some headlines when he suggested that a
massive stranding of whales off Tasmania on December 4, 2004 might be a warning of a major earthquake “within a week or two.” Three weeks later,
the earthquake that triggered the Boxing Day tsunami occurred.
On August 20, a pod of 73 pilot whales came ashore at Karikari Beach in Kaitaia, New Zealand. Nine were saved by teams attempting to refloat them
but the rest died.
When Dr. Kumar was informed of the beachings, he predicted that an earthquake and/or a massive volcano eruption would occur in the end of August or
early September. Sure enough, on August 29, Mt. Sinabung, a volcano in Sumatra that had been dormant for years erupted unexpectedly.
Then, on September 4th the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit in Christchurch, New Zealand.
He also predicted an earthquake within four weeks of a mass whale stranding off Tasmania in late November 2008 and on January 4, 2009 three people
were killed by a series of earthquakes in Indonesia.
Dr. Kumar doesn’t get worried about the isolated whale strandings. Rather, as he says “It is my observation, confirmed over the years, that mass
suicides of whales and dolphins that occur sporadically all over the world, are in someway related to change and disturbances in the electromagnetic
field coordinates and possible realignments of geotectonic plates thereof.”
ON EDIT: The Diary is reporting the following;
“The researching team, which consists of approx. 30 experts, performed autopsy inspection on 17 dolphins. The chief of the researching team stated
“Most of the lungs looked entirely white”. She commented though internal organs were generally clean without any symptoms of disease or infection,
but most of the lungs were in ischaemia state. She said “I have never seen such a state”.”
Ischemia ia a condition where nitrogen builds up due to a restricted flow of oxygen in the blood. It is a common symptom of decompression sickness
(DCS) or nitrogen narcosis. However, cetaceans are equipped to overcome decomrpession sickness in most instances. From a report at Compr Physiol
The ability of diving mammals to forage at depth on a breath hold of air is dependent on gas exchange, both in the lung and in peripheral tissues.
Anatomical and physiological adaptations in the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, blood and peripheral tissues contribute to the remarkable
breath-hold capacities of these animals. The end results of these adaptations include efficient ventilation, enhanced oxygen storage, regulated
transport and delivery of respiratory gases, extreme hypoxemic/ischemic tolerance, and pressure tolerance.
For all the animals that were studied to have suffered from extreme ischemia is kinda strange, though not totally rare. It has been documented before
but I cant find those reports at the moment. The thing to consider is how so many died from what appears to be decompression sickness when they have
evolved to overcome just that. It is becoming more and more common to see DCS in cetaceans, though not extreme ischemia.
