This appears to be off the coast of Chili where thousands of crustaceans have died off along with other sea species and birds. The die off extends for 2 miles of the coast. This is most definitely a poisoning because more than one species is reported to have died in mass, especially when its both birds in the air and fish in the sea.



Great concern exists among the inhabitants of Antofagasta by the strange death of thousands of crabs on the beach Chacaya , located 30 minutes north of Mejillones.

The situation is recorded since last Saturday, when these animals along with other marine species and even birds were found dead on the coast , extending for about two miles.

According to witnesses say, the death of these individuals began after the arrival of a boat, for now the authorities have not identified.

Experts, meanwhile, say it is not natural causes


Concern about mass death of crabs

Once again, the cause is deflected to the arrival of a boat, but no other information is provided. A trend is beginning whereby authorities attempt to ignore the idea that these gases are releasing at alarming rates all over the world and is causation for die-offs, booms, extreme weather, explosions and so much more. An example is the attempted cover-up of the booms in KY. Fort Knox is taking the rap for the booms as they say they are training exercises going on at 4 am. Some on the base said they hadn't heard anything while people a hundred miles away have heard the booms. Soon, humans will start dropping dead along side these animals and maybe we'll pay attention.

At the same news site you can find this article to about an underground explosion knocking out power to thousands of people in Santiago. I've also been attributing these unexplained explosions occurring all over the place to these gas plumes to, especially underground electrical fires.



An explosion of an underground chamber Chilectra caused a power cut in the Providencia district .

According to information provided by the company are affected thousand customers located nearby the Titanium Tower , but on the side of the aforementioned municipality.

Failure of supply left offices and public roads without light, a situation not reestablished at the end of this note.


You can visit this site for more information on the explosions.

Not going to look it up but one link a while back said it was guesstimated that there were ONE Million undersea hydro thermal vents. 2012 was a very active year for land based volcanos with 82 eruptions which was a record until 2013 which had 83.. To be honest I am surprised there are not more mass die offs both land, sea, and air... Sad when it happens but it is what it is..

Very weird. If it's methane leaks, why are some people not also involved?

And when is radiation from Fukushima going to start being mentioned as one of the possibilities?

When it becomes one of the possibilities. The first area to be affected by the Fukishima radiation will be the West coast of the US and Canada. Surely this has nothing to do with the radiation from Japan.

These die-offs are happening all over the world and also, they have been increasing prior to Fukushima being able to have anything to do with it. I'm definitely not downplaying the catastrophe at hand with Fukushima, but I don't think it has anything to do with these die-offs, especially a sudden mass die-off. Those would be slow die-offs with mutations and disease rather than something that appears to be a sudden poisoning.

There are some oil wells there in that area, they could have also released methane. Regulations down there aren't so good about that. It could be natural, it could be something created by man. The source should be investigated, although without regulations enforced by the countries government, it may be a waste of time if it is from oil drilling....

Northern hemisphere currents prevent waters cycling in the North from reaching the Southern hemisphere. 99% of the waters in the Northern Hemisphere will never reach anywhere in the south because of the currents at the Equator.

The reason why water pools in opposite direction in AU vs USA. Gravity in both hemispheres pull the water away from the equator.

exactly what I thought...no dead people? Cant they do an autopsy on these animals to see what killed them exactly...if it was methane..just imagine when some pocket hits a populated peach and we read 53 kills from methane bubble...crazy

I've been hearing that to. We see record numbers of volcanoes but we're not being told about the submarine eruptions which could way outnumber the land-based volcanoes. There was news headlines about a couple of submarine volcanoes this year but those were the ones that were hard to ignore.

Unfortunately, I think we'll be seeing more and more of these. Also, it'll make some big news when it does strike at a crowded beach full of tourists somewhere, just as the poster above mentioned. At this rate, it will happen soon.

It's doubtful these are the cause but here are the quakes in the last week - a bit inland from there. It's from earthquake 3D so might be others I'm missing.

San Pedro de Atacama 4.9 105 KM deep. 2/23/14
Argentina area 5.1 105 KM deep 2/21/14
Argentina area 4.9 97 KM deep 2/27/14

Off to look for volcanic activity there.

I think earthquakes release a lot of methane when the crust fractures, so that could still be cause of gases in this area

I got distracted and wanted to track down the volcano I had looked at months ago so still haven't looked at others. This one is the size of Mt St Helens if it erupts (maybe), but linked to a super volcano. It's over 1000 miles away from Chile but I'm going to post in anyway. I don't know why but with the swarm under Mammoth Mt this month in California and that whole Long Valley thing there could be some links with super volcanoes acting up elsewhere and methane releases. Would it do it that far away is another question - does it extend into the pacific, etc. I suppose I should research that so I'll edit if it it does. If not just disregard my concern about this volcano.




Uturumcu itself is in the same class as Mount St. Helens in Washington state, but its aggressive rise could indicate that a new supervolcano is on the way. Or not. news.sudanvisiondaily.com...


No one has really squashed some posters concerns over Yellowstone findings on helium either - more than expected. Just one thing to rule out - volcanoes overall.

I can't figure out how far this Uturuncu volcano reaches. I think it's because it is still being studied (or I'm just not finding it). There are plenty of old volcanic systems there though. The Nazca, Pacific, and Antarctic plates evidently converge here - right off of Southern Chile.

en.wikipedia.org...

Maybe the San Fernandez hotspot? There is so much going on there it is hard to tell for this untrained eye.

Regardless of specifics it seems to me some of these dormant areas are acting up. A bunch of quakes going off in one general area in Alaska - although if related to Cleveland volcano that thing is always going off. Then of course the two I mentioned above. Unless they are measuring methane or someone is witnessing the ocean bubbling we can't know.

Whatever it is - it is a really bad sign. It's been increasing year by year. What would be really nice - to be able to find evidence of patterns of mass animal die offs before the last major extinction level events (patterns that led up to almost all life dropping at once). Actually - maybe we are seeing the patterns (thinking Siberian traps and other big finds). Maybe what we measure as "all life died at once" actually took 10-100 years. Sorry I couldn't contribute better ideas.

The increase in meteorites and methane gas explain a large percentage of the reports of booms and strange noises.
Nice to see posting again!

Found a couple articles re: A NOAA Expedition & Scripps Massive Methane Reservoirs off coastline Chile

“At the Chile Triple Junction (CTJ), where the South Chile rise (a ridge crest) is being forced under the methane-rich South American continent, an international team of scientists will explore for tectonically controlled hydrothermal vents, for seep sites of where methane is released, and for novel "hybrid" systems that may yield hot seeps or cool vents.” oceanexplorer.noaa.gov...

“One expedition site is the Chile Triple Junction, where three of the planet's tectonic plates meet. Here the spreading center that typically features hot vents is being dragged into a subduction zone, forcing it under a continental margin with methane seeps. The scientists also will visit the Concepcion methane seep, El Quisco methane seep, and the southern end of the Peru Chile Trench.”

I've been thinking a lot may be riding on those methane plumes. We have a danger danger situation beyond radiation and pollutants. And a more active earth, possibly sun generated phase.

Also people keep saying the sun is cooler. Someone told me that there is a natural cycle every 12 years, when the sun reverses its polarity, you get a colder winter. The sun measurement hitting earth becomes less frequent, can't remember what he said was measured but less rays. Sun more dormant, but that only lasts 3 months or so.

The sun is very active lately, lots of flares and cme's.

Thanks for adding this article. IMO what may be happening is that land ice is melting in both the Arctic and Antarctic adding more ocean water and weight to the earth's crust. The continental shelves are thinner parts of the earth's crust and they will release more methane once they get any extra added pressure on them. This fits with the article above. Imagine the amount of extra weight on the ocean's floor from even a slight bit of land ice melt, and scientists have already shown that Antarctic ice is melting as well as Siberian and Greenland ice. This is also causing the uptick in volcanoes. Not a good thing, except that maybe the volcanoes will slow down the warming with volcanic ash clouds deflecting sunlight, but this will only slow it for a while because the methane will continue releasing. And besides, if volcanoes continue increasing to an extreme that creates volcanic winter, we'd be in trouble anyways.

Looks like these die-offs are really picking up now. Here is another mass die-off of several different species including marine and birds, and this one further along the Pacific Coast from the OP in Peru.



A preliminary report of the Instituto del Mar del Peru (Imarpe) indicates that dolphins and other mammals, such as seals and sea-pigs that beached in recent weeks on the beaches of Piura and Lambayeque perished by degenerative paintings in various internal organs. Would cause toxic algae that is activated during the summer by various climatic factors and pollution.

The results of four tissue samples of dolphin and a penguin were subjected to pathological examination showed that organs such as the kidney, liver, brain and adrenal glands of the animals showed degenerative pictures.

Imarpe veterinarians determined that the dead animals had affected the spleen and lymph, demonstrating that suffered a moderate decline in their immune systems.

ALGA MORTAL
Imarpe The report indicates that the animals may be poisoned by eating a poisonous algae that occurs naturally in the sea, which is triggered by the change of summer temperature and pollution, among other factors.

Imarpe still awaiting the full results of the analyzes performed on animals and phytoplankton to determine with certainty if the algae is causing the deaths.

STILL DYING
Specialists Imarpe of Piura, Lambayeque (Santa Rosa) and central Peruvian coast continue to record more dead animals in the northern beaches. It is estimated that in the last 10 days 100 dolphins, waterfowl, turtles and sea lions were found dead.

The Regional Manager of Production Lambayeque officially has a record of 459 dolphins, porpoises, sea lions, turtles and birds that beached on the coast of Lambayeque and reserving Illescas, located south of Piura.

According to this source, Lambayeque Imarpe staff recorded that 79.9% of the animals were stranded cetaceans (dolphins of various species), 8.93%, seals, 7.65%, turtles, and 3.46%, birds.



Dolphins have died in poisoning

Here are a few more from today

Hundreds of dead fish in Chinese lake



Reporters on the scene saw hundreds of dead fish floating in the river. Yu told reporters that he was very fond of fishing, weekend leisure will be about a few friends went to the edge of freshwater fishing. On Saturday, Mr. Yu as usual and a few friends went to the freshwater lake fishing. "On that day the water only a dozen dead fish," Yu said, "Today passing looked surprised, hundreds of dead." Yu said, the lake has a Luo (tilapia), crucian carp and other fish class, have never seen such a large area of ​​dead fish scene, the dead are mostly Luo.

Department response: Staff Shatian Farm Bureau Mr. Gao said that recently there are a number of ponds there are a lot of dead fish phenomenon, which is a few days ago due to lower temperatures, fish suited to the climate and froze to death. "Law is a non-African carp, are warm octopus, so a few days ago has led to the large number of deaths low non-Luo." The staff member said that the municipal immediately contact the dead fish on the lake clean.

The 84,000 dead cattle in Bolivia is thought to be due to flooding and disease. Influenced by methane - altering the climate? Could very well be. I can't see a growing population in the world working with climate change - declining food supplies/more people.




Beni has lost 84,000 head of cattle, valued at $ 50 million as a result of floods and disease began to spread, according to a report given yesterday by the Federation of Ranchers Beni.

LAND Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land, Victor Hugo Vasquez reported that so far has recorded a loss of 39 thousand hectares of crops and 44,000 head of cattle lost due to heavy rains in the country, especially in the department of Beni, according to the agency ANF.

The scallops and other shellfish story was mentioned on ATS recently but hearing of internal organ damage in some of the above species made me think of acidification. If it can compromise a shell (formation of or otherwise) it can harm soft tissue.



Oceanside Star, Feb. 27, 2014: [A]cidity in the Pacific Ocean is decimating Vancouver Island’s farmed shellfish [...] eating holes in the shells of scallops [...] B.C. Shellfish Grower’s Association concludes that rising ocean acidity is killing oyster and scallop larvae in B.C. and Washington. An audit of Island Scallops’ facilities early in 2013 counted three million scallops seeded in 2010 and seven million from 2011. “We started gearing up for processing,” he said. But the animals started to die soon after and by July, mortality hit 95 to 100 per cent. Other local growers faced the same fate.

If we truly don't have any control we may see people starving on a major scale in the years to come - just suck it up and prepare for nature to get rid of some of us. But...if we do play a role (it's a no brainer for me - we do), we need to change our behavior (all of us) and at least try to reverse some of these effects.
