KGMB, May 4, 2017 (emphasis added): Tens of thousands of crustaceans wash ashore along miles of Mokuleia beaches — There’s an odd pink tint to the sand along Mokuleia thanks to tens of thousands tiny crustaceans that have washed ashore.  But what the creatures are and where they came from is a bit of a mystery. “I don’t know what’s going on over there. But I’ve never seen anything like this,” said resident said Elisah Rivera. “And it’s millions, it’s not thousands, it’s millions. We actually walked all the way along the way, and it went all the way, about two miles down.”… It’s unclear what they are. Some say they’re crabs, others say shrimp, some suspect lobsters. The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says they appear to be baby shrimp… Environmentalist Carroll Cox he found about a dozen dead sea cucumbers washed up on shore as well. He believes the creatures are baby crabs. ‘There are other species. I just noticed sea cucumbers found in a small area along with the crab. So that causes concern when you have more than one species impacted with an event. That should trigger some alarm,” Cox said…

KHON transcript, May 2, 2017: “Last week we told you about thousands of toads washing up on the North Shore — now thousands of dead crabs washing up to North Shore beaches.”

  • Will "authorities" and media blame climate change again? Will people allow them to continue to dismiss the fact that radiation destroys chitin as JGov/TEPCO continues dumping radioactive waste in the ocean and burning solid waste which enters the atmosphere and drops back down onto earth and into the ocean?

    Will fisher folk decide to test seafood for radiation and then declare an international fisheries emergency upon realizing the stock is contaminated and unsafe to eat?

    Doubtful.

    Peter Daley of the Sunshine Coast Food Lab tests dried products for free. http://sccc.org.au/pages/The-Food-Lab.html

    How many more whales and salmon and other critters in the food chain have to die before the lies end?

    • Yes Obvious, i read "the stock is contaminated" as was worried LOL

      Good point on the Food Lab. I have some extra dried lichens from top of Mount Ka'Ala on Oahu and some dried octopus (I mean really dried) and some dried Au (a bill fish that ought to bioaccumulate "well")

      never thought of sending those to Peter even though we are collaborating on other works, sheesh. Seems "so far away" but postage is the only thing in the way.

        One area for exploration might be this; how do they find a few becquerels of cesium in a cubic meter of water among the background of 10,000 becquerels from potassium? They absorb it with organic polymers. But the body is full of organic polymers. Is it possible that water soluble radionuclides could be brought out of aqueous suspension and their true high levels of radiation intensity manifest in specific locations?

          "…how do they find a few becquerels of cesium in a cubic meter of water …"

          Using platinum ( or irradiation) as a catalysis (/stimuli ) ….depending on the frame of reference one would like to stand on.

          ". Is it possible that water soluble radionuclides could be brought out of aqueous suspension and their true high levels of radiation intensity manifest in specific locations "

          In real life that is the question that is not in the open, or ever answered, regarding uranium buckyballs ( and how they interact ), since we now know they are formed…what causes them to unfold, so to speak.
          It is not unreasonable by any measure, that the most significant inorganic ( man made )interaction with the environment is the unfolding of these uranium buckyballs, and why it happens

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            Silverlok, back in 2015 I was hypothesizing that animals and plants could get an enriched radiation dose by virtue of an analog to the polymer beads that Buesseler and others use to help test for this radioactive fallout. I searched for bio-polymers and found chitin…the industry uses chitin to absorb radionuclides. And that is how the chitin theory of the higher-than-expected impact from Fukushima was born. Most likely one reason, along with their large surface to volume ratio…that plankton can bioaccumulate radionuclides up to 10,000 times. This makes them useful for cleaning the ocean water also. But the radioactive plankton die and as the float down are consumed by fish, and then form a radioactive blanket that can be stirred up, and also which affects bottom ocean life.

            The visualization is this; even "low" levels of cesium137 cause hot spots, both on a macro scale and on an atomic scale, and this is one of the things that differentiates cesium from say potassium, both otherwise very similar in radioactivity, chemical toxicity and assumed toxicity by the ICRP dose model. I was actively looking for the differences, and why the mainstream science was unable to imagine Fuku fallout could affect the ocean. I was very actively resisted by posters here in that process, being labeled a pro nuke hormesis pusher and worse

            Although I think it's more the fact that these cut'n'pasters are listening to junk news and are convinced either through poor mental health or a lack of common sense that they are actually doing something worth while.

            Attention seekers get something personal out of it by thinking they know something the rest of us don't. Problem with that is the journey into fiction the sane won't even entertain.

        An extremophile (from Latin extremus meaning "extreme" and Greek philiā (φιλία) meaning "love") is an organism that thrives in physically or geochemically extreme conditions that are detrimental to most life on Earth.[1][2] In contrast, organisms that live in more moderate environments may be termed mesophiles or neutrophiles.

    23 California Salmon Species Likely to Go Extinct Within 100 Years https://www.ecowatch.com/california-salmon-extinct-2412724180.html

    California's plethora of salmon and trout species are dwindling at a rapid rate. A new study found that of the 31 genetically distinct kinds of salmon and trout on the West Coast, 23 will likely go extinct within a hundred years.

    The study is a follow up to a 2008 report that drew the same conclusions, however, the outlook wasn't as grim almost 10 years ago. The old assessment gave a time period of 50 years for five of the species, the new one says now 14 species are likely to be lost within that timeframe.

    Researchers from the University of California Davis and conservation group California Trout said the main culprits are climate change, dams and agriculture.

      "I have just returned from visiting my friend, who is a senior cetacean biologist at one of the large west coast universities. While there, he described an amazing situation to me that has alarmed me greatly. He said that research at his university has conclusively identified the complete or almost complete collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean, all within the last 36 months or so.

      Further, in “unauthorized" exchanges with the relevant departments in other coast universities, he learned that the numbers involved may well be more like hundreds of chain collapses in the same timeframe as opposed to dozens. Finally, in talking with authoritative figures in Vancouver, they apparently believe that the figure is likely closer to 1000."

      "As bad as all of this sounds, here is the real rub. Regarding these findings about food chain collapses, mutations, and injuries, my friend’s university has instituted a policy that forbids them from publishing their findings, from discussing their findings (on this subject) publicly or in private with other researchers outside their own campus, or finally from taking “unauthorized” radiation…

      • from taking “unauthorized” radiation readings as part of their research. The penalties for violating these new rules are severe: loss of tenure, civil lawsuits for violation of contract, and potentially employment termination."

They came into the leeward side of Catalina Island like that, seemed like millions. This happened about late 1960's, I was there, no one knew what they were called or where they came from, they are what you call a free swimming crab, subject to the currents of the ocean. Someone should take a close look at recent currents, or long term current movement. That had never happened there I can say 30 years previous. If you ck. with NETC, they reported perhaps 2 years ago a similar onshore stranding at Orange county/ Newport Beach, Ca. This the third time it's happened now in my lifetime.

    Nuclear Contamination Reaches Earth's Deepest Water, Could Affect Billions – May 1, 2017

    “A shocking new study has revealed that groundwater drunk by billions of people may have been contaminated by decades of nuclear weapons testing. Researchers looked at more than 6,000 wells around the globe, some containing water more than 10,000 years old, found more than half had traces of tritium,” the Daily Mail reported.

    “Even at low doses, tritium has been linked with increased risk of mutation and cancer because it goes directly into the tissues of organs of the human body,” the report continued.

    The study was led by Scott Jasechko of the University of Calgary in Canada. It was published online in Nature Geoscience on April 25, and the university released a statement about the research.

      Earth is a finite space..the manmade nuclear everything and its waste stay dangerous for longer then it takes for geo-dynamics and others to change..everything man-made in his delirious quest for instant profit breaks down pretty fast..bad combination

      Manmade nuclear is uncontrollable..we are to greedy to maintain a sense of reality and do the right thing over and over..we have the attention span of goldfish and prosecute people with a sense of responsibility like whistleblowers , and it shows in everything else we do..how we handle our WMD waste , how we pick a president that dont believe in treaties and/or regulation of the greedy but said he believes in clean air and water..both can not be true at the same time..and we let our "chosen ones" prostitute themselves to foreign nations and bankers that shape the world by controlling the wars and get a profit from it too..

      Did i mentioned the Earth is a finite space ?

    "The Morris Operation in Grundy County, Illinois, United States, is the location of the only de facto high-level radioactive waste storage site in the United States and holds 772 tons of spent nuclear fuel.[1] It is owned by GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy with an address of 7555 East Collins Rd., Morris, IL 60450.[2] The site is located immediately southwest of Dresden Generating Station.

          See that's why you should've voted for Hillary, because she never associated with Rumsfeld, Bush or Trump.

          But NOOOO, some people actually voted for Trump, who is NOTHING like her.

        • Many could see if they would just look, problem is that most are on the rumor mill that has become our press…

          This is a orchestrated cover for those that are really in cahoots with communism.

          The cover? Russians tried to effect the election? Trumps people made no secret of talking with the Russians, have given full disclosure and used public (for the record) channels when speaking about these things…

          The real secrets? The Clintons have taken millions from the Russians in exchange for access and power to make deals inside the US and abroad without interference.

          "As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors".

          So someone needed to change the focus. And the fairy tails about Trump ties with the Russians are the most obvious forms of misinformation and opinion shaping seen in years…

          And these bogus investigations are the most heinous forms of distraction and complete wastes of time and tax money imaginable.

          Wake up Trump bashers, the real secrets and shady dealings are (as usual) on the other side of the coin. Just follow the money…

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

            How does Trump's billions compare to the total of 100 million of the Clinton's received from many sources?

            We know that Trump declared bankruptcy 6 different times to the tune of billions. No one in the US would lend him any more money, only the Russians.

            And money from Russians came to other Republicans as well.

            Yes, do follow the money. And why talk about politicians who will never be in government service anymore anyway.

            The money from the Russians to the Clinton Foundation came before 2009 when Hillary became Secretary of State.

            And all the deflection from Trump policies can't change the fact that Trump has no compassion for anyone but himself. Trump still hasn't released any tax returns. And he still hasn't sold any of his money making ventures and put them into a blind trust. He is so cagey that he used his bankruptcies to keep from paying any taxes at all in many years. His poor supporters will be outraged when they discover his true scams.

            The 35% approval rating for Trump represents the fact that Americans do not support his political policies. His forced resignation will come for political reasons and the disapproval of a HUGE majority of Americans.

            Everyone is following the money. And the money says that Trump is a narcissistic cocaine addict who grabs women by their genitals. What a LOSER!!!!!!

            • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

              The Russians overwhelmingly openly wanted Trump to be president and didn't want Hillary. That is because Trump is in their pocket, seen over and over again when Trump is against Climate Change, and against NATO.

              The Russians are still against Hillary and bash her all the time because she stood up to them and is no cocaine, narcissistic politically naive fool.

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

                This is what is so pathetic about Russian propaganda. If Hillary were in their pocket like all the Republicans claim, the Russians wouldn't have been so afraid of her.

                Obviously, they were not able to buy her off.

                  Look at my left or is it right? No need to analyze the sentiment or scope of that correctness.

            • OK let's explore that for a moment…

              "And all the deflection from Trump policies can't change the fact that Trump has no compassion for anyone but himself"

              This is a fallacious statement.

              President Trump has a family, they are more involved in his presidency than any other first family in history. If they all have more money than the great great grand kids could ever spend why get involved and become targets of rumor mill people?

              Why not just hide in the background? Seems to me they all care or why take the chance of being ridiculed (or worse) by those that are blind or have a nefarious agenda?

              I would love to know why a tightly woven and engaged family is to be ridiculed…

              …help me out with that one.

              "Trump still hasn't released any tax returns"

              Just because someone askes for them does not make it necessary, legal or anyone's business. Trump is not obligated to release personal information and it's a matter of privacy and security.

              How about you release your tax returns here on this site and make it public just because I said so. I dare you, release your personal tax information publicly, just because I said so.

              That's the most ridiculous argument I've ever heard…

              So come on Doc release all copies of your tax returns just because I asked you to…

              It would be laughable to even talk about if it wasn't so pathetic.

              • "Yes, do follow the money. And why talk about politicians who will never be in government service anymore anyway.

                The money from the Russians to the Clinton Foundation came before 2009 when Hillary became Secretary of State"

                Even scarier is that Hillary has all the contacts and connections and probably knows where most of the bodies are buried (so to speak) and can go on with any agenda she pleases after leaving public office.

                So basically not reporting multi million dollar donations is ok with you if it's hillery doing it…

                Withholding and covering up information about communications using a unsecured e-mail account and never disclosing who you talked to or what information was shared is ok with you?

                Allowing the Russians to buy up uranium rights in the us and abroad and the Clinton's accepting over 2 million (that we know of and can now prove) from those that profited from the sales is good politics?

                Conversing with the Russians on a open channel (trump administration) with full disclosure and records to show what was said is bad thing though huh.

                Why would ANYONE us a a open channel of communication if they were trying to hide something?

                Well just ask Hillary about her e-mails, she is obviously quite adept at covering things up.

    King fishery closed

    That leaves fishery managers caught in a box of their own. The simple solution in Southeast was to close the lid and be done with the problem, but the Southeast troll fishery is nowhere near as valuable as the Copper River king and sockeye fishery.

    Copper River is the best known salmon brand in Alaska, which is what makes the fish especially valuable. They are the Romanee Conti of Alaska salmon.

    I need more laughter in my life. The last 20 posts on this thread delivered! Thanks!
    Seriously, Code, Jebus, Orwell, stock, Heart & others not recalled by my radiated brain are the smartest & most articulate people here. I'm somewhere south of the middle of that list.
    And Hillbilly HD too. Where is she? Hope she's alright. Maybe she's canoodling. Lucky if so.

    Clarification : I'm near the middle of TOTAL posters in smartness & articulation. Nowhere near the names mentioned. But it's gonna take all of us & then some to ensure that nuclear power dies a rapid & extremely painful (to them) death.

      dang, all these years Ive pronounced it alticuration.

      The only thing that will reduce nuclear is the misguided notion of Darwinian economics. Thus the earth was lost

        Nuclear industry prices itself out of power market, demands taxpayers keep it afloat
        Nuclear power is so expensive even some conservatives are turning on it

        The nuclear industry is so uncompetitive that half of U.S. nuclear power plants are no longer profitable. And if existing nukes are uneconomic, it’s no surprise that new nuclear plants are wildly unaffordable.

        New York and Illinois have already agreed to more than $700 million a year in subsidies, and if all northeast and mid-Atlantic nukes got similar subsidies, it would cost U.S. consumers $3.9 billion a year. Things are so bad for the nuclear industry that, recently, even conservatives have started to publicly oppose the subsidies the industry needs to survive.

    Video: Incredibly Rare Megamouth Shark Freed From Net, Before Dying

    Japanese fishermen and residents of Tateyama, Chiba Prefecture, were thus very surprised when a megamouth got snagged in a fishing net near a local lighthouse on May 22, as reported by the The Asahi Shimbun. It was then moved to an area of open ocean in a guide cage, Earth Touch News noted, and filmed by reporters and a fish researcher and television host named Sakana-kun, who is also a professor emeritus of the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology.

    Sakana-kun reportedly dove into the water “in his trademark fish-shaped headdress” to identify the megamouth, and said that he could “see her vigorously swimming.”

    But then, on May 24, the shark was found on the seafloor not breathing, and has since been reported dead. “It is regrettable,” a downcast Sakana-kun told Asahi. “Having seen her on the previous day I thought she was going to become energetic.” It’s not clear what caused the shark to die, though the stress of being caught is capable of killing fish, even if they at first seem fine when first freed. Unlike many sharks, the megamouth doesn’t need to constantly move to breathe, and is capable of pumping water through its lungs while it is stationary. That should, in theory, make them easier to save from entanglement compared to other sharks.

    Summary:
    The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission relied on faulty analysis to justify its refusal to adopt a critical measure for protecting Americans from nuclear-waste fires at dozens of reactor sites around the country, according to a recent article. Radioactivity from such a fire could force approximately 8 million people to relocate and result in $2 trillion in damages.
