Sailor: “After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead” — Nothing alive for over 3,000 miles — No longer saw turtles, dolphins, sharks, birds — Saw one whale, it appeared helpless with big tumor on head

[…] The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” [Newcastle, Australia yachtsman Ivan] Macfadyen said.

“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes. […]

And something else. The boat’s vivid yellow paint job, never faded by sun or sea in years gone past, reacted with something in the water off Japan, losing its sheen in a strange and unprecedented way. […]

There have been several similar reports about wildlife around the Pacific, including sardines, seals, sea lions, polar bears, sea stars, turtles, salmon, herring, coral and more.

A few days ago, the same newspaper published an article discussing the credibility of ENENews.

    I ADVISE you to read, it is in the best interest of all life on this planet and research other risks that we have opened ourselves up to, albeit you are one of the careless people that would rather ignore the issue (as it will be your future and your childs that will suffer the detriment), a stay at home mother, a hard working father or a curious teenager wondering what is going on with the world. Some of you skeptics may not be aware that over the recent years there have been strange events taking place all over our planet. These events range from reports including documentation and footage of, strange noises coming from within the Earth, from the sky as well, noises that sound like the Earth is screaming. Other events such as thousands of birds dropping dead all at once, thousands upon thousands of dead sea life floating ashore without any warning, abnormalities in our weather. Events that are shrugged off and kept unexplained as to the conditions that caused these anomalies, and what caused these conditions to occur. Nature is being FORCED to change it's course, we are disrupting the way of life on this planet. Soon, Earth as we know it will be gone. Robbed away from ourselves. If you are an environmentalist, then I would suspect that you are aware of the program, HAARP ran by your Good Ole' jolly Governments, they've even signed international treaties stating they wouldn't use weather manipulation for purposes of warfare (Geez' could you imagine that? They could…

    actually manipulate weather to the point that it would be of use in warfare, at disadvantage of the enemy). Need I say no more… We continue to disrupt the forces that protect our planet from solar flares, and near earth orbiting objects (10,000+ as NASA has confirmed to date). We dare disrupt forces that protect us from single meteors that will eventually hit Earth and cause an Extinction-Level-Event (Asteroids with a diameter of 7 meters enter Earth's atmosphere with as much kinetic energy as Little Boy (the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, approximately 16 kilotons of TNT) these occur roughly every 5 years, normally ending up as an air burst and all materials are vaporized when traveling through the atmosphere that protects Earth which we are destroying), to solar flares that would knock our entire power grid offline and render all digital devices useless, launching us into a wild western period of time, with no law but local, absolute chaos would rein the streets. Keep in mind, this has already happened many times, though it will be worse next time. Some scientists predict the power grid would be offline for 10 years in certain cases, 1-4 years on a good day. Sure, I'm all for progress and evolution of our planetary race, via technology. The problem is, the way we are doing it as of now, Earth won't be here for us to conduct such extra-curricular activities. What people seem to not realize is, there is only one force that does not forgive, not even once. It's…

    called "Nature". Self research, is smart research. Don't believe everything these media outlets tell you, without questioning it first. You will only hear and see what they want you to. Do you honestly believe that the Government would tell you if tonight would be the last night you would spend on this Earth? Of course not, everyone would be spending their last moments in fear and chaos. The message is very simple… Think for yourself and question. On a side note, don't get yourself too wrapped up in the mainstream, that goes for Politics, and everything else. That is the very damnation of society, that is what is holding us back from mental evolution. All of it will keep you from your self purpose and enlightenment, the ability to just travel freely out of your mind and observe, you're constantly in a state of concern of what THEY tell you, are you not? Stay safe and start planning your own home-made contingency plans for what is to come. Otherwise, you will be subbed into a FEMA camp under martial law, when a national state of emergency order is put out. Keep a look out for the skies over the next few months, a couple of FEMA wide regions have been put under high alert status for a future disaster, rumor has it, it has something to do with a future impact. Time will tell all. Good luck.

    Well, you can see for yourself that when deep sea animals start washing up on beaches, hundreds of dead seal pups found dead on California beaches, starving whales and pelicans and finally personal accounts of empty fishing boats and sailor observations, then make up you own mind.

    If this proves out to be true, then the time for all of us is hurtful and short.

  • I ALWAYS KNEW the oceans were sensitive to outside stimuli. I NEVER knew just how sensitive. There are massive changes (not necessarily for the good) that are taking place in our oceans. Could the negative changes as of late be due to the increased radiation from Fukushima? It has become clear to me that I now have to consider it a fact, that the answer is YES. Take the Sea Star decimation. These types of creatures are usually the first to die when pollution occurs. The Sea Star population is so badly damaged at this moment in time, that many species of them are sure to go extinct. I think the beginning of the end of many different life forms in (and out) of the Pacific Ocean has started. I hope I am wrong. God help us if I am not.
