Captain: Massive amount of debris off Hawaii, “You had to be there… just kept going & going… so odd it was in straight line” — Japan Expert: It’s accumulated off islands, warns of fish contamination — Rare dolphin washes up with heart problems & stomach lumps, last examined in 1980s

The Garden Island, Nov. 25, 2013: Swath of debris spotted off Na Pali Coast […] Capt. Mike Birchett said he was about one mile off the coast of Kalalau Beach when he spotted […] what he described as a massive amount of marine debris. “You had to be there to see it,” he said. The ribbon-like debris line was between 10 and 20 yards wide, up to two miles long and contained everything from car-sized bundles of commercial fishing nets to buoys, entangled ropes, large plastic fuel cans and buckets, according to Birchett. […] “It just kept going and going,” he said of the rubbish. “The most amount of trash I’ve ever seen. And it was just so odd that it was in this straight line.” […] As of Sunday, the U.S. Coast Guard was still broadcasting a safety warning to all mariners. “All mariners are advised to use caution when transiting the area and report any sightings to U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu,” the broadcast says.

The Japan News, Nov. 19, 2013:  “Debris that drifted from Japan has accumulated in the eddy of the current off northeastern Hawaii,” [Prof. Shigeru Fujieda of Kagoshima University] said. “Plastic debris that flows out of the eddy will continue to be carried to places like Hawaii and Alaska.” Substances are often used in the manufacture of plastic goods that, if consumed by fish, could cause reproductive abnormalities or interfere with immune cell development. The substances could also become more concentrated as they are swallowed by different organisms along the food chain. “Human beings could consume chemical substances while eating fish,” Kojima said.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Nov. 23, 2013: A rarely seen dolphin that lives in deep waters off Hawaii washed ashore on Maui last weekend. The 9-foot-long, 800-pound male Risso’s dolphin was found dead on a rocky shoreline near Paia, Hawaii Pacific University biology professor Kristi West said Thursday. A necropsy indicated the dolphin had pneumonia and heart disease. His stomach had firm masses that may have been cancerous. […] “They’re a huge source of information on these deep divers that we never see,” she said. […] The last time one of the dolphins was stranded in Hawaii and scientists had an opportunity to examine it was in the late 1980s.

    The Honolulu-Star Adviser article linked by Enenews said the dead dolphin found near Paia, Hawaii had pneumonia and heart disease.

    What causes pneumonia and heart disease?

    Well good tidings to anyone reading this comment. I encourage you to find your centers and spread love and positivism every moment we are blessed to live. It's kind of eerie isn't it, that the tragedies unfolding before us were predicted thousands of years ago? That they were known to different cultures back then,trickled down to modern times through these writings, and still occurred? The past effects the future, and the future the past. All life in this biosphere of ours is heading over the cliff, but one chapter must end for another to begin, and the night is always darkest before the dawn. Who's to say that another planet somewhere else isn't taking advantage of it's fortunate store of life-enabling elements gathered upon it? So be happy, while we still can 🙂

    Apologies for the repost, wanted it on a fresher discussion

      @ eternal tao….I am happy now…maybe happier than I have ever been in my life…I have let go of attachments to this world. The happiness occurred once I surrendered to the reality that I cannot do anything about the end of life as I knew it. Fear and pain have left me.

      I do try to spread love and peace to those around me, and I vent here on this site to the others who are awake aware.

      Thanks for the message… I am sure you know the only Eternal Tao is non-attachment that includes attachments to peace, positivity, and love.

        That's a good place to be. And ancient records of many cultures do seem to confirm that this will not be the first time the planet has exterminated itself. It just seems like humanity doesn't LEARN anything. I just hope that the bulk of the planet (who had nothing to do with causing this) — that there is (since space is vast and huge) a better world to be. I'm struggling with even thinking that humans caused this to humans, and not ONLY to humans, but to all genomes of the Earth. We really need to identify with something better than that!

  • Broke this same article a few days ago…..

    Large Mass of Possibly Radioactive Flotsam Spotted in Hawaii, aka We Killed the Pacific
    Read the article below. They have found massive amounts of debris like this in Hawaiian waters, stretching in lines for miles. From the Kauai Newspaper Article–"the line was between 10 and 20 yards wide, up to two miles long"

    Risso's dolphin showing tumors, heart & respiratory failure, etc… Much like the account of a whale witnessed in empty waters of the Pacific struggling with tumors on its head…

    The variety of life forms that live in the Pacific Ocean is absolutely STAGGERING!! I can't believe this Risso's dolphin lives in deep water…and is known to be in high quantities in the tropical Pacific, per wikipedia… I never knew of this species. 🙁

    • alasanon

      I can say that the dolphins found here off the East Coast are very special…and to spend time with them can be a spiritual experience!! I have heard natives of South Carolina refer to their local dolphins as important fellow citizens. Even these wild dolphins want to interact with you and have so much personality. They are amazing and have really touched my life, more than I ever expected. Everyone hears of how they can touch hearts and affect people, but you don't know until it really happens to you.
      I would really have to go to bat with anyone going after our dolphins here. And I greatly lament this torment for all these ocean species…

    And at TEPCO HQ its all business as usual. Of course they say Fukushima is fine, no problems and of course no health problems to report!! LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I grew up (some say I'm not quite there yet) with a collection of beach combings and reef diving from the North Shore of Oahu. Some of the debris is glass fishing net balls from Japan circa 1940s.

    I'm not surprised about tsunami debris arriving near Hawaii.

    Currents of flotsam, miles of 'em.

    What to say are you all brain dead, get a grip mankind all the signs are there, you don't think we can exist if we don't coexist, do you, be real, think hard last chance.

    • invisible ELEphant in the room

      I think what Kevin Blanch keeps saying is true, 99% or more of humanity is totally out of it and doesn't care about Fukushima.

      I've looked for reasons and the best explanation to me is possession by parasites of some kind or possibly a conscious decision to want to commit suicide.

    Most humans have a hard time thinking beyond their own lifespans.

    We forget that we leave footprints.

    Radioactive footprints.

    The kind that lasts until the end of time. Much, much longer than humankind's existence.

    But most humans don't really have a clue what decaying atoms do to space time itself.

    Radiation is like a wave of heat and magnetism. Because it happens on the atomic level it's hard to detect.

    The physical trash arriving at Hawaii will remind us of the invisible horror as well.

    Bands of highly atomic pin-ball currents, zapping life=forms. zzzzzzzttt. fhhhht. sht…

      Covalent nuclear bonding = wave of traveling space occupied by a charge state electron rotation. The transfer happens during a decay with a Xenon-iodine bond available from salt's easily conductive nature. The ocean is like a giant transmitter of fluid electron transfer. New permutations of arrays of particles all playing quantum racket ball.

    The out of control radioactive water releases at Fukushima is devastating to carbon life forms in the Pacific Ocean and eventually spreads to all connecting waters (the earth has just one ocean…we named different areas of this single body of water.

    But as important for human survival as tracking ocean infiltration by Fukushima are jetstream patterns. Knowing high risk days is essential for the human families who will survive the air radiation which is enormous from Fukushima and continues every second unabated at 997 days and counting. Invisible toxins blew around the globe, but especially in the Northern Hemisphere jet stream currents.

    For your family to have better survival odds utilize the animation charts to see when you are in the worst days:

    Build 7 day animated loops to analyze the high speed wind patterns as those currents bring old and fresh radiation in 30-40 hours to west coast North America and continues onward in a 40-day global loop.

    Avoid precipitation if possible (your umbrella should be in your car always) and stay inside whenever possible when the jet stream is blowing in your area (which is a lot).

    The 4 wrecked reactor buildings at Fukushima are gushing air emissions that are hot radiation particles and as radioactive heat elements rises into the lower jet stream currents they will blow until meteorological events bring them to the ground. Forewarned is forearmed.
