Gov’t Experts: Hordes of jellyfish 10 blocks long off west coast of Seattle; So dense it’s like you can just walk on them… Disturbing when all you pull up are huge masses of jellyfish — NPR: They seem to be replacing fish in food chain — Herring disappear, mysterious spike in salmon deaths (PHOTOS)

KUOW (NPR station in Seattle) transcript, May 12, 2015 (emphasis added): Jellyfish Boom As Little Fish Disappeared…  A bill signed by Governor Jay Inslee authorizes a major study of fish in Puget Sound… A new study suggests that the little guys are disappearing… [NOAA biologist] Correigh Greene is standing near the end of a fishing dock in West Seattle. He’s not here to fish, but he tells me what he’d expect to catch if he threw a net in the water here: Some young salmon pumped out by hatcheries(Green): “and that’s mostly it, aside from a bunch of jellyfish”… In much of Puget Sound… researchers rarely pull up the little fish that salmon, and even orcas, depend on. Mostly they get big hauls of jellyfish. Greene recalls one of the biggest — (Green): “The net was so filled with jellyfish we couldn’t bring it on board. It was too heavy for our winch. It’s fairly disturbing when all you pull up are these huge masses of jellyfish.”… Jellies seem to be replacing the tastier parts of the food chain, like herring… federal biologists can’t explain why forage fish, like herring, have declined by 98 percent or more in much of Puget Sound.

Christopher Krembs, Washington Dept of Ecology oceanographer: “Fall and winter, the patches were just enormous… not just a few blocks long; some of them were 10 blocks long… it was so dense, you had the feeling you could just walk on them.”

Seattle Times, May 2, 2015: Prime fish give way to hordes of jellyfish in Puget Sound… Over the past 40 years, the researchers found that the numbers of herring and smelt have plummeted… herring catches were 1 percent or less of what they were… [P]ollution can impair reproduction in forage fish… But even in the relatively undeveloped Rosario and San Juan basins to the north, herring catches have fallen by more than 80 percent… “People who have a history of being out on the water will say: ‘There sure are a lot more jellyfish than there used to be,’” [Univ. of Washington fisheries professor Tim Essington] said… In recent years, [Krembs] noticed larger and more frequent blooms… a huge bloom of moon jellies [was seen] in October — when jellyfish usually start a seasonal decline.

NOAA, May 2015: Pacific herring and surf smelt… declined by as much as two orders of magnitude… with jellyfish-dominated catches jumping three to nine-fold in the same sub-basins… In some cases more than nine of every 10 tows of trawl survey nets in recent years brought in catches dominated by jellyfish… The research may also help resolve the mystery of why juvenile salmon survival has declined sharply in Puget Sound… “there is clearly a compelling pattern of change in Puget Sound food webs that may be linked to human influence,” said Casey Rice, a [NOAA] research fish biologist.

    The problems with oceans are known to be multifactorial.

    CONG – coal, oil, nuclear and gas.

    There are fertizers, pesticides, heavy mrtals, thousands of chemicals, garbage, sewage, runoff from storm drains.

    Industrial civilization was a blessing; now it is a curse.

    I would hesitate to falsely attribute all earthly ills to nuclear alone. False attribution is another cognitive distortion.

    Oil companies would be glad to blame everything on nuclear and visa versa. Be careful not to fall into that trap. Over-simplification of environmental issues is seeing trees but ignoring the forest.

    We must work on many levels because the activities of mankind are destructive on many levels.

    Ionized radiation causes cancer and mutations. It impairs the immune system. It ages you. It causes genetic mutations. It causes heart disease and thyroid associated developmental problems. But do not overlook what carbon does. It is clear to me that climate change is happening and to the p=.05 level of significance, the activities of mankind are causing it.

    Harvey Wasserman opposes CONG. Fracking is a dire threat, too. We must oppose all of these things. Industrial civilization in its present form means extinction. It is that simple. Too many people doing too many bad things.

    • pinksailmatt pinksailmatt

      Socrates…you are right. Nuclear is not ALL to blame. Mans inability to correctly estimate dangers ARE…especially when they are blinded by GREED!

      The levels of toxins that current corporations are pumping out are going to be a staggering problem for our next generation to overcome, in order to prevent the total and permanent collapse of this fragile earthly web-of-life, IF it has not already happened.

      Radiation acts like a toxin magnifying glass on the human body in that it will search out the cracks in the bodies immune system and open those up.

      It weakens ALL life forms with it's DNA clipping ability.

    "Leaders who are concerned with the effect climate change is having on global temperatures should be leading the discussion on strategic energy choices that promote the use of emission-free nuclear energy.
    And environmentalists who claim climate change is the most important issue should not become "nuclear deniers" in the face of the science and data. "

    http://www.sj-r.com/article/20150513/OPINION/150519727

    Anyone else notice an uptick in "nuclear is green" lately?

    • Yes, many more environmental groups avoid any mention of nuclear anything, but are dead set against carbon fuels.. Ask your environmental group head what their position is on the future of energy…

      Do they support a carbon free, nuclear free future?

      Will they put that in writing?

      If not, why not?

      Their answer will speak volumes about which 'side' they are on and what amount of greenwashing is going on..

      Many environmental groups are secretly supporting nuclear.

    Planet Earth will be alright and recover for other species to live and thrive on.

    Millennia from now, she will once again be the paradise we were lucky enough to thrive in. Hopefully, the dominant species will be cognizant of her. Be able to understand, respect and realize her wonders and uniqueness and not blindly exploit her for short-sighted generational gain.

    But first she must shake humanity away, like ridding a flea infestation from a dog. She is doing this now with our help providing the poisons.

    For Earth, the only place in the known universe that can sustain such a miraculous bounty of life, and the other living creatures on her, the infestation can't be eliminated fast enough.

    It is sad, but I'm not sure we can, or have the will to save ourselves. It is just the way we are.

      Nukes killed Mars. Mars not able to support life. We should learn from history. "The xenon isotope mass spectrum of the Mars atmosphere matches that from open air nuclear testing on Earth and is characteristic of fast neutron fission rather than that produced by a moderated nuclear reactor. The high abundance of 40Ar cannot be explained by mass fractionation during atmospheric loss, and must be the result of neutron capture on 39K, also requiring an intense neutron flux on the Mars surface as is the high abundance of 17N and deuterium. Modeling the 129Xe component in the Mars atmosphere as due to fast neutron fission and the 80Kr as due to delayed neutrons from a planet-wide debris layer, and assuming an explosive disassembly of uranium-thorium casing into a planet wide debris layer with 10% residue, all three estimates arrive at approximately 1025 J, or a yield of 1010Megatons. This is similar to the Chicxulub event on Earth and would be large enough to create a global catastrophe and change Mars global climate. The absence of craters at the site suggests centers of the explosions were above the ground. The explosions appear due to very large fusion-fission devices of similar design as seen on Earth, and the Acidalia device, the largest, being approximately 80meter radius." https://pdf.yt/d/sRmXR7I7gg2jEQFd

        George Straight ' s figures were reviewed by two nuclear scientists who said 10 times the number of people would probably die from eating fish than George Straight suggested. Now TEPCO ' S admissions would increase these figures many more times over. Likewise, the continuing nature of the releases into the future, and the longer half – lives of Cesium-137 and Strontium-90, as well as the idea of pockets of radiation instead of uniform distribution makes eating fish risky.
        You can thank the nuclear power industry for destroying the world's greatest source of food on the planet. This stupidity was exemplified by the location and design of Daiichi reactors and plant. It will happen in the US and other countries. There is no safe way to contain fission and/or dispose of waste.
        Do not support any politician who believes otherwise. They will Co tinge to force nuclear on us in a totalitarian manner because they are the Nuclear Taliban.

      Report: Fukushima fallout detected in U.S. fish — Dose equal to samples caught 100 miles from plant — Persistently high levels detected in marine life offshore “not anticipated… orders of magnitude” more than expected — “Measurements needed… along predicted plume trajectory”
      Published: March 2nd, 2015
      “Excerpts from ‘Radiological Dose Rates to Marine Fish from the Fukushima Daiichi Accident: The First Three Years Across the North Pacific’, includes authors from Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences and Oregon St. Univ., 2015 (emphasis added):
      • “A more complete record is emerging of radionuclide measurements in fish [from] across the Pacific… Fish 100–200 km east of [Fukushima], coastal fish in the Aleutian Islands… and trans-Pacific migratory species, all had increased dose rates as a consequence of the FDNPP accident.
      • “FDNPP produced the largest single-event influx of radioactive cesium isotopes into the Pacific [137Cs up to 90 PBq; Chernobyl total: 70-85 PBq].
      • “Dose rates to the most impacted fish species near the FDNPP have remained above benchmark levels for potential dose effects at least three years longer than was indicated by previous, data-limited, evaluations.
      • “[Strontium-90] was estimated to contribute up to approximately one-half of the total 2013 dose rate to fish near the FDNPP.

        However, subsequent data have indicated highly elevated and persistent accumulation of Cs.
        • “Maximally exposed fish near the FDNPP [had] an increase of more than six orders of magnitude… The elevated activity concentrations were not isolated to one sample, or one species. In 2013, activity concentrations of 134,137Cs exceeding [100,000 Bq] kg were measured in more than 100 fish from ten species sampled from FDNPP port… concentrations in [some species] are orders of magnitude higher than predicted.

        • “At Amchitka Island [in Alaska] the 134,137Cs dose rates to [greenling and rockfish] were only slightly higher than pre-event levels… The increase… appears to be due to atmospheric transport from Fukushima as 134Cs was measured… in freshwater fish [11 Bq/kg in trout].
        • “Detections of 134Cs in California water samples gathered in August 2014… suggest incremental dose rate increases to resident fish.
        • “Fish at 100–200 km east of the FDNPP, coastal fish in the Aleutian Islands, and trans-Pacific migratory species all had increased dose rates.
        • “Persistence of the radionuclides in fish was not anticipated by existing models… ongoing measurements are needed at locations near the FDNPP and further along the predicted plume trajectory… Some areas that have experienced air deposition in 2011 (e.g. Aleutian Islands), should continue monitoring as they may experience a second arrival of 134,137Cs in…

    These jellyfish are found all over the tropical and temperate world, perhaps spread by boats using water ballast. Dr. Maria Pia Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute said "we are looking at a worldwide silent invasion". It is clear. This world is a Jellyfish World. Just like all those other ways that the world or humanity is going to end: It's not if… it's when."

    PS. Although their cells are 'replicant', and although they are going to be top dog in a rapidly dying sea.
    I don't think their wonder cells are impervious to the effects of radiation.

    What this will come to, should be 'interesting'.

    Actually ..I think they will die too.
    Over population ..lack of food .. deleterious mutation.

  • Redundancies, the nukist talk of defense in depth…..sheesh, we were one step away from a radiation release at Pilgrim in Boston this February, due to a snow storm and crappy maintenance.

    http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/2015/02/pilgrim-nuclear-in-boston-came-very.html

    Pilgrim was very close to being forced to directly vent
    radioactive steam into the environment / neighborhood. They used every last
    line of defense they had, including dumping radioactive steam into the old BWR
    Torus aka Surge Tank.

    Even then the heat in the surge tank got so high, they
    had to use an emergency heat exchanger to cool the surge tank. Fortunately it
    worked. If that last piece of equipment had failed it would have been a serious
    accident with radiation exposure to the public.

    Pilgrim had the same types of
    equipment problems in the last 2 years, and FAILED to fix them, and the NRC
    failed on adequate follow up.

      Doesn't the vent system allow steam from the torus/surge pool to pass into the atmosphere?
      I recall a YT video which showed that once the torus water/surge pool water got heated up from allowing reactor pressure vessel steam to flow into the water in piping that terminates below the water line. The rad reactor steam would then result in 90% of the radioactivity to rise up the vent and into our atmosphere. It was an Italian research team that made the Fuku reactor model and proved that under the actual Fuku conditions most of the radioactive steam will make it into the open atmosphere via the vent stack. Hence the massive spikes in radiation that was detected prior to the reactors exploding. I cannot find the video right now but I thought that Agreenroad.blogspot.com had it

        The only reason the vent stacks are there is to release radioactive fallout away from the site so work can continue. Before offgassing reaches the stack, it is suppose to be filtered to some extent but they can't or won't filter for everything. In a emergency where the goal is to save the core, venting is directly to the atmosphere preferably up the stack without filtering. Filters would get clogged and/or contaminated at that point anyway so they can be bypassed.

        At Daiichi, no electrical power to operate valves and damaged plumbing means they couldn't direct any venting if they wanted to and morphed into overpressure anyway which caused self-venting (uncontrollable leaking). Most of the time the vent stacks could not be used because of a loss of power to valves.

        This was a known problem or drawback and a fix was to install a direct hardened (to withstand heat) vent pipe from the core, up along side the building and dump pressure to the outside directly to save a core from possible meltdown (get water in) during emergencies. Let the fallout spew, anything to save a core or look at the failed Daiichi results.

        NRC 'asked' US nuke plant operators to install these after the fact hardened venting pipes but was met with cries of expense and never enforced the so called fix.

        Even during normal operations, not all the manmade radioactive products can be contained even if they wanted to. So, limits are set for exposing the populace to 'safe' radioactive levels.

          It's impossible to have such a twisted psychopathic sense of priorities and not create an ELE..

          If the algoritme of greed can create such situation's , then the centralisation of profit need's to be discouraged or outlawed to a certain maximum degree.. meaning also a firm limit on the current insanity of how much an individual can suck out the system..and go crazy.. And company's should not have to be so dependent on their stockholder's in their decision making..
          Stockholder's make social responsibility of a company impossible as a priority..

  • A ProNuke troll that frequents blogs and websites to throw out lies and it always a cheerleader for nuclear, Michael Mann made some big claims on how well they test their gensets which are the backup power source for nuclear power plants.

    ———————————————————————————————————–
    stock here– my assertion has always been that even at Nuclear Plants, the backup generators are not tested under the real world conditions that they are needed in.

    This means testing them support all the real loads that have to run in an emergency, including making sure that all the switchgear operates properly and automatically.

    article here, it is informative

    In the last week I drove up and then down the entire Oregon coast. Every beach I could see from 101 was lined with dead sail jelly fish. The article here sounds like they are talking about a different kind of jelly. Anyway, the sail jellies have covered the tide lines of Oregon for close to a month now. I wonder how many have died, why is this happening, and how many are still alive. What's gonna wash up next? My abnormalcy bias makes it hard to see anything as "normal."

    Wow,

    an important website that politicians read and which covers political issues

    is now being sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Institute (pro-nuclear promoters and lobbiers) !

    The website is now full of pro-nuclear ads and pro-nuclear articles.

  • ecoguy57

    What you are seeing is the result from Pacific Ocean contamination from Japanese radiation! I have been posting for years that both children and adults on the west coast of the United States and Canada should be detoxing with the powdered mineral called Zeolite to safely remove the radioactive isotopes from their bodies! This is important and powdered zeolite really works! For more information see the website at http://www.removeradiation.com
