Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
I yawningly see the two leading whale-killer suspects remain ship/boat strikes and global warming. Oh, please.
Global warming might be coming on like gangbusters, but the seven-some years of whales dying is far too rapid a timeline to seriously accuse warming oceans of being a prime suspect. GW is NOT killing the whales at this time. Give another 20 years of things heating up and then maybe we’ll talk whale-killer weather.
The whole vessel strike scenario is also totally out of synch with recent history. There were just as many whales and vessels prior to the start of the die-off. No die-offs then. This “event” – a euphemism, if ever -- is far too sudden to meet the skip-strike criteria.
With today’s demise of dolphins, the marine mammal die-off has taken the ugliest of turns. Many, including myself, had wondered why mainly whales were succumbing. Now, the little brethren of whales are keeling over. There’s even a seeming uptick in DOA sea turtles.
Please, do not try to feed me the illogical BS that the mere planning of wind turbines is killing ocean creatures. There is absolutely no science whatsoever backing those moronics. In fact, anyone truly believing such nonsense is delusional. Others should come clean and admit that running with such blather is actually all about keeping the horizon clear of turbines. That is a legit and noble cause – in an American freedom way! But admit that clean views are the endgame ... and then take a back seat to those wanting to get to the meat of the die-off.
I’m more convinced than ever that something evil this way comes. That is an awful implication that the die-off ugliness might be on the rise.
The horribly distasteful notion that toxins or microbes are the killer culprits should now be front and center, even for formerly disbelieving folks who lambasted me for being so bold as to offer such an ugly cause.
It’s still too early to upgrade my fear of some COVID connection to the die-off … but it is climbing the wall to get into ballpark range. The ugly part of that possibility is the fact we’re still under an executive emergency act that would despotically prohibit reporting SARS-CoV-2 should it be found in the lungs of dead marine mammals.
Oh, do not balk my friends. Even worse censorship has frequently occurred throughout the pandemic, a pandemic that might have gone epizootic.
To get way outside the box, I’m again issuing a warning that the sewerage effluent from millions of inoculation recipients might be making it into nearshore waters, even if it’s just the chemicals in the shots, which includes: citric acid monohydrate, trisodium citrate dihydrate, ethanol, 2 hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HBCD), polysorbate-80, sodium chloride. And don’t forget the shot’s star: Recombinant, replication-incompetent adenovirus type 26 expressing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein,.
I have some chemistry smarts from college. I know those additional ingredients are generally seen as harmless. But when combined in an inoculation concoction, then issued into the ocean in what amounts to monumental dosages, there’s no guessing the trickledown effect on marine life. Keep in mind that none of those ingredient remain in a human recipient’s body. It gets peed into the outside world.
Here's hoping the rebirth of this blog becomes far less caustic, as striped bassing picks up. I also hope to sprinkle in my metal detecting finds and matters near and dear to LBI but not always fully publicized.
