Millions of Dead Fish/Birds; First week in 2011

The expression, “like a canary in a coal mine” was used to describe the alarm system for coal miners in the late 19th and early 20th century.  The small birds were brought down into the mines to be a zoological early warning to alert miners of toxic gases or fumes.  The canaries would choke and die earlier than people so the men knew they should take action! Explanations of large scale bird and  fish deaths over the past 7 days are as follows: hail, lightening, heavy winds fireworks, disease, tornado, upper atmospheric disturbance, mass confusion, hit by something, bird government experiments, power lines, extreme temperatures (hot or cold), massive trauma, struck by a car or my personal favorite, the 2nd coming of Christ.  I think we should add chemicals to the list ~ Don’t you?  The experts may be overlooking several chemicals because they do not consider these chemicals to be deadly.  Why? Because the same chemicals are found in 90% of every man, woman and child in the USA.  One more thing, pollution and poison HAS been ruled out.  I believe that ruling out “pollution” is unwarranted and too early. New Years Eve ~ between 3,000-5,000 dead red-winged black

NASA~Earth Observatory over past 130 years

http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/WorldOfChange/decadaltemp.php?src=eoa-features A snapshot of Earth over the past 130 years with heating and warming trends. “A one-degree global change is significant because it takes a vast amount of heat to warm all the oceans, atmosphere, and land by that much. In the past, a one- to two-degree drop was all it took to plunge the Earth into the Little Ice Age. A five-degree drop was enough to bury a large part of North America under a towering mass of ice 20,000 years ago. ”

20 Things You Didn't Know About Water

DiscoverMagazine.com 2009 by Rebecca Coffey 1. Water is everywhere – there are 332,500,000 cubic miles of it on earth’s surface.  But less than 1% of it is fresh and accessible, even when you include bottled water. 2. And “fresh” can be a relative term.  Before 2009, federal regulators did not require water bottlers to remove E. coli. 3. Actually, E. coli doesn’t sound so bad.  In 1999 the Natural Resources Defense Council found that one brand of spring water came from a well in an industrial parking lot near a hazardous wasted dump. 4. Cheers! The new Water Recovery System on the International Space Station recycles 93% of astronauts’ perspiration and urine, turning it back into drinking water. 5. Kurdish villages in northern Iraq are using a portable version of the NASA system to purify water from streams and rivers, courtesy of the relief group Concern for Kids. 6. Ice is a lattice of tetrahedrally bonded molecules that contain a lot of empty space. That’s why it floats. 7. Even after ice melts, some of those tetrahedrons almost always remain, like tiny ice cubes 100 molecules wide.  So every glass of water, no matter what its temperature, comes on the
