‘Ultra-Rare’: Up to 70 endangered ‘whales’ by California coast — Seen once in several decades, lives in open ocean — Breached as if performing, rubbing heads on boat — So loud thought it was engine — “Seemed to be speaking to camera” — Also spotted in Western Pacific same day (VIDEO)

Corona Del Mar Today, Mar. 13, 2014: False killer whales are members of the dolphin family and are listed as endangered [...] “According to the news, these are so rare that they haven’t been seen in Southern California for well over a decade,” [Sgt. John Hollenbeck] said. “They were traveling in a pod of perhaps 50 or so, spread out over about a quarter of a mile. They were very noisy. I could hear them whistling and singing to each other through the hull of my boat as they passed around me. I’ve heard that many times before before with common dolphins, but these were much louder. Initially, I didn’t even realize it was their song – I thought there was something wrong with the engine on my boat.”

Pete Thomas Outdoors, Mar. 13, 2014: [There were] between 50 and 70. [...] [Capt. Dave Anderson] managed not only to capture close-ups of the false killer whales, but vocalizations [...] including one that seemed to be speaking to the camera. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Anderson said. “I was sitting there for about five minutes and the whales came over and surrounded me. Their whistles were so loud I could hear them above the surface.”

KPCC, Mar. 12, 2014: Ultra-rare ‘false killer whales’ sighted off California – [NOAA's Jay Barlow] says he last saw this species in Southern California in the early 1980s [...] Normally they live in tropical waters, and Barlow says even there they are rarely seen. One reason false killer whales are seen so rarely is that they typically live in the open ocean [...]

CBS, Mar. 12, 2014: “I have been cruising in this area for many years, and I have never seen this species of cetacean off of our coast.” -Capt. Mike Bursk, Ocean Institute’s RV Sea Explorer

GrindTV, Mar. 13, 2014: On Monday morning, a pod of similar size was spotted off Ensenada, Mexico [...] during each sighting, one animal stood out because of the peculiar shape of its spine. [Bursk] said the false killer whales came to him and were riding in his wake. When he stopped, some of the mammals rubbed their heads against the vessel. [...] [Capt. Larry Hartmann] spent about 45 minutes alone with a small pod, and said they were breaching, as if “performing for me.”

South China Morning Post, Mar. 13, 2014: Hong Kong’s unusually chilly waters didn’t put off one unusual group of visitors. A pod of about 100 false killer whales has been in local waters [...] the first mass sighting of the marine mammal in Hong Kong. [...] researchers found the sight of the pod deeply impressive. “If you looked around, they were everywhere. It was spectacular view” [Dr Samuel Hung Ka-yiu said] “I can’t really think why (they were here).”

        We haven't done anything to cause this accident. When I was born it was 7 years after TMI and Chernobyl when I was born. This is not my fault. It's the nuclear cartel and all their government and oligarch shareholders. It will never go away until governments go away or science finally has commercial fusion reactors. We just don't approach through an organized fashion the legal system which is where the battle lies. Get Price-Anderson repealed and overnight operators will increase costs to the point no one will pay or end subsidies to these plants for operational matters. The court room is the ONLY place to protest and protest through the law. Until we have lawyers, organizations, lobby groups, and lots of capital, and lots of shall we say leverage over congress (Like corporations do.), we will continue this same path. I'm not a lawyer, but I know that is where the battle lies. I know that I don't want humanity to die off. That's the entire point of caring about these issues. lol I'm actually chill for once, so maybe I make sense. I get your frustration, but we just need to monetize this so we can make a living fighting to stop and close these plants. Fight fire with fire, right?

          even if we had/have "commercial fusion reactors" the problem would still persist. what problems would a seemingly infinate energy source solve, and what hidden wastes would it actually produce? what about the raw BTU's of heat? wouldn't that still contribute greatly to global warming? how would an infinate electrical source solve this problem?

    Could these whales be trying to talk to us?

    The radiation business officials and their government lackeys would never tell the us or them the truth … these criminals ban publication of data which is negative to their baby-killing and fetus-destroying radioactive emissions …

    They even stop the monitoring, when honest monitoring would yield results detrimental to their evil business model…

    They've been doing this since the 1950's …

    It's all there, in Ernest Sternglass' 1981 book (first edition published in 1972) "Secret Fallout: Low Level Radiation from Hiroshima to Three-Mile Island" … government obstruction of research, destruction of finished printing plates to deny publication of damning data, Nixon administration budget cuts to the Office of Radiation Programs …

    The mendacity of this full-on evil business is frankly beyond belief …

    George W. Bush didn't have far to look to see the face of the true "Evil Empire" … twelve inches away from any cheap mirror would have done it.

    The destruction of the Pacific Ocean cetacean populations should move most humans.

    Sadly, the nuclear cabal seems to be populated by non-human life forms.

    Massive additional deaths from the routine emissions we've been treated to by these murderers.

    General Electric, Westinghouse … all murdering, lying A**holes.

    Peace to my fellow 'newsers.

    Highly intelligent beings:

    "One of the more fascinating aspects of this species is that they have what Barlow describes as a "very tight group structure" that involves sharing food.

    He points out in the video you can see a whale holding a Yellowtail fish in its mouth. He says false killer whales sometimes pass their catch between every member of the pod before anyone is allowed to take a bite.

    “I’m sure its a test of group cohesiveness to be able to do that no matter how hungry you might be," Barlow said.

    It's a social act occasionally seen in groups of killer whales as well, but not in many other species."

        Type 1 will be able to control all aspects of this planet's function and I am not sure that will bode well for all the other species now being exterminated in unison. Power corrupts, remember..?

        The perfect example is the more intelligent we humans have become, the more severe the damage we have done to our ecosystem and only planet.

        I am not excited or sure that anything will change at Type 1 and in fact it may be devastating for all those that are still left floundering/swimming in all the Nuclear and other pollution aftermath. :(

        Sorry for the above picture, but the truth must be dealt with and that is why we are in the mess we are in now. Ignore the truth and find yourself being fried by a Nuclear Technology that has hidden many truths from you. When you have a nation where the general population is consistently drugged just so they can function and then under environmental progress assault 24/7, I think a few faces being bitten/eaten off is very relevant.

    Of course they are trying to talk to us, the same thing has been happening in Puget Sound and along the west coast for the past year or two. I wish just one of these fucktard oceanographers would at least talk about the unprecedented behavior from higher marine life in the Pacific instead of regurgitating the nuclear industries babbling points. "Here's why I think its safe, cesium low, thousands of miles, becquerels in fish aren't even a number… Radiation map is tsunami surge, dilution, airplane ride, bananas….keep eating buying swimming like my job depends on it."

      I wonder if these radionuclides could be creating interference with their natural forms of directional capabilities? Maybe, that is a reason all these animals, not just sea creatures but White Owls here, are traveling in areas not typically associated with them. They could also just be following the food. We have no clue the true state of the ocean ATM. Not like there is a census especially the bottom of the food chain.

      Sometimes the mineral MANGANESE works to alleviate tinnitus. With radiation, all the various radionuclides seem to affect different systems of the body, and many supplant specific MINERALS: like strontium for calcium and cesium for potassium. But there seem to be a huge range of radioactive particles out there and we oftentimes haven't a clue what we are being bombarded with specifically or the antidote.

      Manganese may not work — just suggesting it because it is cheap and you'll know in a few days if it helps.

      We have sea kelp from early on and from the East Coast so at least we feel safe taking it as a mineral supplement. Anti-oxidants are needed too. But minerals can really help in warding off some of this stuff.

    Other than Fukushima radiation which is a factor you might want to look at covert operations of the Navy and the new sonar hell that they have imposed on all creatures of the oceans. The navy doesn't care about the creatures of the sea unless they get caught at their destructive practices and in the following link they know there is not escaping objective evidence. We know nothing about their NEW sonar capabilities nor the science behind it. The navy is willing to sacrifice any and all creatures of this planet in the name of national defense, even humans, as long as they don't get caught.

      Under the heavy sea
      I'll search the flight of whales

      Beneath the seas I searched
      And had a different view
      Of us on earth
      The sinking ship of men
      But it's beyond the stars
      I found the place
      Where they were
      And they finally came to light

      Over the winds
      They dwell in light
      Like the arrow in the sky
      I found myself on higher grounds
      From up here
      For I see them in flight

      Now I can see the whales
      Looming out of the dark
      Like arrows in the sky
      I can't believe my eyes
      But it's true

      Huge tunnel ends in light
      Like banks of clouds they gather
      See massive shape of flesh
      Swimming giants in the clear
      The mightiest comes to me
      I'm on the wing, wide open
      They teach me how to fly
      Slowly moving in the air

      So much told with no words at all
      Powerful presence for only speech
      Breath

      Over the winds
      They dwell in light
      Fly

    “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” Buddha quote.

    The truth is emerging. Pity on all those that are suffering. What have we done?

    The animals teach us. Yahweh gave the animals to us to teach us about his kingdom (i.e., learning earthly things to teach heavenly things), but to teach us about ourselves, and they must be a huge warning system to teach us that something just isn't right as well. I think they are trying to tell us from their way of telling us, the bit of intelligence that Yahweh gave them, that we are in trouble in a big way. Plus they may be as well.

    If only we could communicate with these endangered creatures and explain to them that they won't be harmed if they just smile!

    :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

    The plastic surgery business is gonna boom when people by the millions all race to the surgeon's office for a permanent smile procedure!

    :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

    maybe we could catch some of these giant whale dolphins tranquilize them and have a veterinarian perform plastic surgery and give them permanent smiles then they wouldn't be endangered anymore, we could put capture and put smiles on any species that becomes endangered and we can save the world and everyone and everything can be smiling!

    Yes if only, and if only people were more serious about how dangerous and detrimental to human life this situation is.On the 3yr anniversary of FUKUSHIMA in Edmonton Alberta Canada all of 2 people were out demonstrating and spreading the word. In a city of over a 1000000 people all of 2(my Sister&I) were out all day, big yellow signes,yelling till her voice was hoarse and arms falling off! Hell we were even kicked out of the legislature building in Edmonton for wearing the nuclear emblem on a face kerchief! Don't think the security guard made the connection got his panties in a knot! We found it to be quite funny actually.
    All in all we felt we started to do our part, handed out 100 handouts with all the good info, yelled more that wasn't on the handout and by far the highlight of the day was when the children getting on the school bus asked what we were doing and when the teacher took the information handout the children lined up and took then too! PRICELESS As I said to the teachers Teach the children
    Was a MLA from Medicine Hat I tried to give handout to but he said he was aware and why the government keeps truth secret is and I will quote him with my sister as my witness as to his words, "To keep people from rioting." So now would be a wonderful time for IF ONLY!! God Bless Peace n All

    It is not what people think that should move them to do this or that, but it is the way that we feel, the connection of the Heart that must move us in our lives. We must honor that connection.

    I feel that most everyone that comments here att Enenews is aware of that connection.

    And, of course, corporations have no heart.
    None.

    "Federal agencies are not sampling at the beach. "

    There should be detailed computer maps of the oceans and waters streamed in real-time on public websites 24/7.

    We do it with weather.

    We do it with markets.

    Radiation? Hah!

    Say again, why it is so secret?

    Are we really too stupid of an animal to HIDE death from others?

    Wow!

    Beware the Ides!

    Whales seem to realize that the arboreal creatures climbed down from the trees and started a nuclear fire in the oceans. Their only chance is that the land-monkeys can fix it. Too bad they broke it but cannot fix it.

    Near Chernobyl, old, dead logs do not rot in the forest because low levels of radiation kills the bacteria and fungi. Just imagine what has happened to our oceans. One years ago, only a billion land monkeys inhabited the earth. Now we have seven billion.

    Bill Maher on Realtime last night had a guest who spoke of the taboo of any discussion of limiting population growth, even among environmentalists. Well, at the risk of offending fundamentalists – quit having children randomly – give the whales break.

    Educated women have fewer children. Fact. So let's educate them already.

    Peace to all.

    Hello everybody!
    Although new in the forum, I've been following you for one year or so.
    As I am seaman and sailing along for 42 years across the 5 oceans and the 5 continents, including the Antarctica, I think I could asses you if required, in meteo o oceanographic topics, at least.
    I survived three hurricanes, and the last one was north off Hawaii while approaching Vancouver coming across the Pacific from Hobart, Tasmania.
    Also Called at Seattle, Portland, Port Everett and San Diego.
    What I mean is that I really feel the world as my oyster and very concerned about what's going out with Fuk-U-shima, as some of you call it and the West Coast.
    I am spreading your voice here in Spain, because I feel you as brothers and sisters, so I call the humans who are awake enough to "see" and open hearts to "understand" we are all the same old f. race in just one beautiful, awesome planet… that we are wasting.
    Thanks to you all for the job you are doing here.
    Salud y Amor

    Thanks, zogerke and ChasAha. But the last one writes a very good spanish. Your ancestors, maybe?
    I love your avatar. I tried to upload my picture of a dolphin riding a bow, because I've been studying and swimming and playing with pilot whales in South Tenerife. Second world's whale watching place.
    Also swimming with Sperm whales and dolphins.
    From Pilot whales, calderones in Spanish, I learnt that a higher level of evolution can be achieved as they live in a much better type of society than us. They do deserve indeed, to be called "humans" in the best sense of that word. A lot more than us for sure. Of course there are plenty "humans" among us, thanks to them is still hope for human race but majority are blind of their real nature yet. This is why I love people like you.
    One thing about the subject. According to my own experience, the false killer whales are quite rare, but the truth is that I never spotted them inshore or nearby coastal waters.
    Salud y Amor

    I got an anecdote about them pseudorca crassidens.
    When I was sailing in a tiny sailing boat, 35 foot, between the Canaries and SW Spain and into the trade winds, very exhaustive by the way, I was resting below deck during night watch in a quarter moonlight when I felt suddenly scared by very loud and high frequency sounds. I came out in panic to see in that silver glowing night that I was surrounded by a large pod of these false killer whales which followed me for a minute almost touching the hull.
    They were so noisy that I thought for a moment, they were warning me about something. Quite a few times, strange and odd coincidences happened in my life, this was one of them. Paying careful attention to the bow and few seconds later a huge whale, rorcual probably, breached crossing the bow only few meters ahead.
    I had to alter the course fast to avoid imminent collision. Seconds later, all of them have disappeared. In my opinion, those false killer whales were escorting the big one and probably warning me out about the chance of collision.
    Salud y Amor.

      welcome luzbel , glad you're around thx for posting
      looking forward to your input here :)
      When approx did the incident you experienced with these loud whales take place? How far out to sea did this occur? i'm just curious and am sure you have many great anecdotes which i look forward too! Stories from sailing cannot be beat. First hand witness.
      peace..
