I thought I would to continue to expand my theory of everything and look at coral reef bleaching. I felt like this was a more worthy effort than continuing to blow up Doppler radar towers, although that sure has been fun. If you want to know the truth I unknowingly dropped my IPhone 4 into a cup of iced tea on Saturday and it stayed submerged for two hours. So I upgraded to an IPhone 5 but it will not run the App anymore to blow things up.
I actually know something about bleaching as I have designed bleaching systems in industry using peroxide, chlorine dioxide and sodium hypochlorite, all bleaching “agents” because they donate oxygen and oxidize things, effectively whitening or “bleaching” them. In my just in time to save the world blog searching about coral reef bleaching I came across two overlying facts
2) Reefs started to go to hell in the 1980′s (Links Below)
Regarding El Nino and his sister El Nina, they occur when the jet streams appear to get stuck for a few months into one area and dictate weather patterns. Now I told you all before that I believe El Nino is El Black Holo Stringo and it is these strings of dark/vacuum energy that get stuck into one place into and through the Earth as the strings gradually oscillate, decay and decohere in the atmosphere. It is at this time that reefs many times become bleached. Now if you have followed my theory I think it is an increase in local vacuum energy concentration penetrating and gradually ionizing the waterways, ionizing dissolved oxygen right out of the water and Viola Nino, you get a bleaching agent, oxygen that can attack your coral. You will also get other stuff like phosphates and nitrates to help feed the algae bloom. Scientists blame algae blooms on the lack of oxygen /hypoxia when I think they have it ass backwards, algae CREATE oxygen, which is why it is in our atmosphere. Dark/vacuum energy is the ionizing energy source.
Now, regarding item two, this is where I have to blame man again. I ran across a couple items below:
So in my model it is an increase in energy levels of this same vacuum energy due to our Doppler Radars that is causing the same effect as El Nino.
Doppler radar produces low frequency, PENETRATING radar waves. It is also emitting MEGAWATTS of radiation over our heads continuously. The atmosphere is attenuating much of that energy and reflecting back towards Earth in my model, possibly at even lower frequencies. My data is showing that around towers, there is a tremendous increase in algae blooms, fish kills, waterspouts(ionized plasma discharge), sinkholes(plasma/vacuum discharge during storms), manatee deaths, dolphin deaths, pelican deaths, whale deaths, sea star wasting, autism increase.
I CANNOT FIND ONE STUDY ON THE SHORT/LONG TERM EFFECTS OF PUMPING MEGAWATTS OF LOW FREQUENCY, PENETRATING DOPPLER RADIATION INTO THE ATMOSPHERE OVER OUR HEADS. If my readers can,please send it to me.
It is not “global warming” causing these events. Although warming is a problem, it is not that significant yet. One of our atmosphere’s primary roles is to reduce the energetic vacuum energy level above our heads in the ionosphere before it gets to us. Doppler is pumping it back up, increasing ionization, oxidation, mutation and DECAY.
We are creating our own Black Death.

The deadliest known outbreak of a measles-like virus in bottlenose dolphins has killed a record number of the marine mammals along the U.S. Atlantic coast in recent months, officials said Friday.
A total of 753 bottlenose dolphins have washed up from New York to Florida from July 1 until Nov. 3, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The figure represents a 10-fold increase in the number of dolphins that would typically turn up dead along East Coast beaches, said Teri Rowles, program coordinator of the NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program.
“Historic averages for this same time frame, same geographic area, is only 74, so you get an idea of the scope,” she told reporters.
The cause of death is morbillivirus, a form of marine mammal measles that is similar to canine distemper and can cause pneumonia, suppressed immune function and brain infections that are usually fatal. The virus spreads among dolphins in close contact to one another.
The death toll is also higher than the 740-plus strandings in the last major Atlantic morbillivirus outbreak in 1987-1988. And they have come in a much shorter time period, leading officials to anticipate this event could get much worse.
“It is expected that the confirmed mortalities will be higher,” said Rowles. ”If this plays out similar to the ’87-88 die-offs, we are less than halfway through that time frame.”
Rowles said efforts are underway to try to determine if the virus might have been introduced into wild bottlenose dolphins from another species, like humpback whales or pygmy sperm whales.
“There are still a lot of unanswered questions about that,” she told reporters.
Among bottlenose dolphins, immunity to the virus has been decreasing, particularly in the younger animals as time has gone by since the last outbreak 25 years ago.
“So we know we had a susceptible population, but just being susceptible alone is not how the outbreaks go,” she said. “We are trying to understand where this virus came from and how it got into the population in which it is now circulating.”
In the meantime, the process of dealing with all the dead carcasses has been “overwhelming,” particularly for local recovery teams, Rowles said.
The Virginia Aquarium alone has had to pick up and do necropsies on 333 animals in the space of just a few months, said Ann Pabst, co-director of the University of North Carolina Marine Mammal Stranding Program.
“You can imagine that it really does become an all-consuming sort of job,” she said.
“They have done heroically well in keeping up.”
Five percent of the dolphins have been found alive on the beaches, but died soon after, NOAA said. The virus has appeared to infect dolphins of all ages, from young to old.
But since the number of dolphins washing up on shore may not represent all of the creatures that are dying, it is difficult to estimate what proportion of the population is sick.
And without a way to vaccinate the wild population, there is little that officials can do but collect the carcasses and continue to study them.
While NOAA hasn’t determined a cause for the deaths, other scientists have speculated that mass die-offs like this one are becoming increasingly common as climate change causes water to warm, and human-produced pollution weakens dolphins’ immune systems.

Thank you Stewart. Scary words that need to be heard. Lou
As humans we try to make the best of our short time here on Earth. We did not ask to be here. Many of us are thankful we are here, some are not. I believe we all marvel at life and its non-stop attempt to lay down roots in this Earth and make meaning of it. Based upon what we are taught or what we perceive, we do our best to make our way. If you are like me and are reaching middle age, you may have buried your parents already, realizing that life is very short and that part of your identity is lost with your parents because they knew you best. If you have had children, you cannot not be amazed at life unfolding and you should realize how precious it is. If you spend time out in nature, unplugged from our electronic dungeon we have created, you will see the same. You realize as you get older much of “life” is not figured out, if it is even figureouttable. We all live in our small slice of this world, making the best of it that we can.
But on a larger scale on our small Earth, something has gone TERRIBLY WRONG.
After my year of research, personally, I cannot blame all of this on “climate change” or extra nutrients in the water. In fact, dinosaurs thrived in a hot, humid Earth. After plotting 10 months of fish kills, algae blooms, waterspouts, sinkholes and earthquakes I see a more sinister cause. A cause you cannot hear, see, touch, smell. It penetrates water very well due to its low frequency with a wavelength of a few centimeters. It is penetrating our waterways, it is penetrating into our babies in the womb. It is messing with the bees natural mechanism of navigation. It is messing with bats echo location. It is adding energy to the atmosphere in its surroundings, increasing the number and size of sinkholes during storms. It is increasing the number and intensity of tornadoes and waterspouts nearby. It even appears to me to be increasing the number of earthquakes in its immediate surroundings through accelerated ionization and decay. Its energy is being absorbed in all biology and is weakly ionizing, doing neurological damage over time with its persistent, 24/7 coverage.
and it was rushed into service without ANY studies performed on its long term effects on the atmosphere or surrounding biology
and if we really understood that our atmosphere is not just air and water vapor, but it has a vacuum component that is discharging weakly ionizing radiation all of the time around us, we would have realized that pumping hundreds of megawatts of low frequency radiation into the vacuum above us was a really bad idea, since it attenuates, reflects, and increases ionization in all biology in the surroundings.
I am afraid that Christmas Yet to Come has already arrived.
I updated my Google Earth Database if anybody wants to download it here. You can turn on/off individual groups to paint a picture. Make sure you download the National Weather Service Doppler Mosaic here to paint the full picture. You can download seismic data from USGS here to supplement.
Muttonbirds are dying in their thousands nearly every year and much more frequently than ever before, washing up on the coast from Coffs Harbour to Tasmania.
On South Melbourne and Port Melbourne beaches on Wednesday beach cleaning contractor David Martinez picked up more than 150 short-tailed shearwater birds, a species of muttonbird. One day last week, he picked up a similar number.
At Lord Howe Island this month, 200 shearwater birds washed up for the first time in many years, Monash University seabird biologist Jennifer Lavers said. These deaths en masse, known as “wrecks”, have been reported along the coast from Coffs Harbour to Tasmania, she said.
Our friend Stewart, ChemE, thickens his theory of dark matter and how it affects us all. Lou
All, I appreciate you reading my research and thoughts, I had about 40 countries visit last week, which doesn’t necessarily mean my applied theory is correct, but I will keep researching and posting the information for all to read. I am just an engineer with time on his hands, which are both bandaged at the moment.
I have to be honest, I had a terrible weekend. My research partner (bagel the beagle) got run over by my neighbor while I was on our front lawn spraying weeds. I ran over to her immediately in the road and she proceeded to show me how much pain she was in by biting my right hand as hard and deep as she could . I lifted my hand up and she was hanging in the air from it (she weighs 30 lbs now). I finally got her pried off my right hand and she immediately latched on to my left wrist and bit down as hard as she could. She was then hanging in the air from my left wrist as I tried to pry her off. Anyway, she will have hip surgery today and I spent a few hours at the emergency room getting stitched up. I am not mad at her, she just wanted to let me know her pain.
Let’s be honest, as much as we all try to make sense of this world, we all endure pain and suffering at different points in our lives. We try our best to make our lives as certain as possible but bad stuff happens to all of us. Humans do not deal well with uncertainty, we tend to try and define or push it under the rug as much as possible or minimize it. To me it is almost like denial.
I happened upon my theory back when I was reading about low frequency magnetic anomalies before earthquakes along with all of the accompanying atmospheric effects. You can see that it has spiraled from there. I have no pre-conceived notion about Doppler radar, but it appears to me clearly that there are more fish kills, algae blooms, sinkholes and waterspouts close by to the Doppler towers, especially in Florida, but also around the country. To me it is a simple energy balance, you pump megawatts of energy into the atmosphere and it has to go somewhere. I think much of it is returning to Earth and weakly ionizing all of us at an accelerated rate above “normal”, which increases during storms.
Recent reports are linking Tylenol to autism as well as previous reports linking pollution and others linking weather/precipitation and autism. What I will say is this. Many toxins or pollutants are not reactive until they have been “ionized”. This ionization energy is many times the “fuel” to get a reaction moving. Just like the ionization of that dissolved oxygen in those waterways is enough to start the oxidation of nitrogen and phosphorous and resulting red tide formation, so to is it enough to trigger the oxidation/ionization of humans at an accelerated pace. The recent report on Tylenol used Cuba as an example in that they have very low autism and do not give Tylenol to infants. It is also a fact that Cuba did not install their first Doppler Radar until 2012.
South Korea recently had the highest rate of Autism , roughly one in 38 children vs. one in 55 in the US. I found out another interesting fact South Korea has going for it:
RADAR NETWORK OVER KOREA
Figure 1 shows the locations of the radars operated by KMA, KAF, and USAF. The RKSG and
RKJK radars which are the WSR-88D radar are operated by USAF. The KAF radars are RKWJ, RSCN, RTAG, RYCN, and RWNJ, which are operated at Cband frequencies. The others, total of 12 radars, are operated by KMA and at C- or S-band. KMA plans to upgrade C-band radars to S-band radars to mainly mitigate attenuation effect due to precipitation. The RKSN radar was upgraded to S-band during 2006 to 2007 and an upgrading of the RDNH radar will be followed. The C-band radar at RCJU of KMA was retired in summer, 2006 in accordance with the start ofobservations of two new S-band radars of RGSN and RSSP. As shown in Figure 1, the 18 radars are impartially distributed over the area of about 100,000 km2 of South Korea. Comparing the number of radars with respect to the area, it is found that the operational radar network over Korea is 3.5 and 11 times denser than that of JMA (Makihara 1996) and NEXRAD over the contiguous US (Klazura and Imy 1993), respectively. Another notable thing on the network over Korea is that all operational radars have Doppler capability measuring radar reflectivity, radial velocity, and spectrum width. For the velocity measurements, the radars have a maximum observable range from 100 km to 250 km.
So I tend to agree with ALL of the previous studies. ANY POTENTIAL TOXIN, even those normally “inert” toxins in vaccines and Tylenol, etc. can be made more reactive and toxic by the energy from these particles I have been studying, which I think are made more energetic from Doppler radar towers. There is a reason humans do not reside in the “ionosphere”, we would quickly die. I believe one of the primary life sustaining roles of our atmosphere is to provide space for these energetic particles from the Sun to decay to low energy levels before they reach us. We are just pumping them back up in energy levels with those Doppler Radars, etc.
I think we have an atmosphere with a weakly ionizing component consisting of energetic dark/vacuum energy from our decaying quantum gravity field that we humans have completely ignored.
And now you know the rest of the story.
An infection, an illness that kills 100 animals overnight? Test all you want, but I don’t think so. Lou

More than 120 Elk were found dead 20 miles north of Las Vegas In New Mexico that were found on August 26 2013. Within a few hundred feet there was a crop circle that was visible from KRQE’s News Helicopter. The Elk were found in close proximity to each other suggesting they were not killed by a virus.
No need to worry about WW3 happening soon. Mother Nature will do us in, as she is not amused. Lou
Officials raise alert as ‘zombie’ birds fall to earth amid fears city may be in grip of avian ailment Newcastle disease
Amid reports of pigeons dying, falling from the sky and acting like “zombies,” the Moscow environmental prosecutor’s office has begun an investigation into what some media outlets and bloggers have called a pigeon apocalypse.
The environmental prosecutor has ordered the department of environment protection and several municipal agencies to investigate the mass deaths of pigeons and other birds in Moscow, according to the newspaper Izvestiya, which quotes Timur Brudastov, a senior judicial adviser at the prosecutor’s office.
Brudastov notes that, according to the federal service forveterinary and phytosanitary surveillance, Moscow has become a “hotbed” of Newcastle disease, a bird disease that can be transmitted to humans.
“We’re getting different information. Someone will write that seven birds have died in the city, while others tell us about them dying en masse,” Brudastov said.
Although not all pigeons are affected, some have reportedly been acting as if drugged, stumbling and reacting slowly to humans, or else flying into the faces of passersby and falling to the ground.
“Before death, they start to resemble zombies: they lose their orientation and fly without a sense of direction, then fall, already lacking the strength to get up,” wrote Konstantin Ranks, a science columnist at the website Slon.ru.
Some cases of salmonella infection had also been found in dead birds, Aleksei Alekseyenko, an aide at the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance, told Izvestiya. He said the combination of hot weather and the presence of an infected bird had probably led to the outbreak of disease, but added that the epidemic was already coming to an end.
Moreover, the more dangerous diseases of bird flu and parrot fever had not been found, Alekseyenko added.
One veterinarian, Natalya Anisimova, told the Russian TV channel Rain last week that her clinic had received many calls about dead birds, but such deaths happened every summer. Anisimova agreed, however, that the problem could be growing more acute because the pigeon population was growing.
Moscow has had incidences of mass bird deaths in the past, including one in 2010, which experts blamed on smog.
Some bloggers have said the pigeon fatalities mark the coming of “the end times”, pointing to the tsarist-era mystic Grigory Rasputin’s alleged prediction of the apocalypse on 23 August 2013, according to the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.
The mystery surrounding dozens of paralyzed birds that were discovered in B.C.’s northeast has deepened after veterinarians ruled out West Nile virus but found wing and leg fractures.
Last month, dozens of paralyzed ravens and crows were dropped off at a Dawson Creek rehabilitation clinic, sparking concerns about West Nile, which can also affect humans.
Despite efforts to save them, all 30 birds eventually died.
Veterinarians have now ruled out West Nile, saying no viruses of any kind were found in the eight or so birds sent for a necropsy.
But the young birds showed wing and leg fractures, they said.
“Bones can be broken when they fall out of nests … or if they are coming out of the nest earlier than they should before the wings can really support them. So, maybe that’s not that unusual,” said wildlife veterinarian Helen Schwantje.
“We just don’t see large numbers of them very often,” she added.
A spokesperson for the province’s Fish and Wildlife Branch said officials don’t believe there is a risk to human health.
Last week, dozens of black birds started falling from the sky in Winnipeg.
Residents described a “blanket of black” that looked like something out a Hitchcock movie.
Animal experts are also trying to figure out the cause of those deaths.

Millions upon millions of fish are suddenly dying in mass death events all over the world, and nobody seems to know why it is happening. In many of the news reports that are linked to below, locals are quoted as saying that they have never seen anything like this before. So is there a connection between all of the fish deaths that are now occurring all over the planet? If there is a connection, is there anything that we can do to stop the fish die-off? Sadly, because the big mainstream news networks in the United States have been virtually silent about this phenomenon, most Americans have absolutely no idea that it is happening. Millions of fish are dying in mass death events every single month and most of the public is totally clueless.

Dolphin deaths higher than normal along U.S. East Coast beaches
Thu, Aug 1 2013
By Francesca Trianni
NEW YORK | Thu Aug 8, 2013
(Reuters) – Federal scientists investigating an unusually high number of dead bottlenose dolphins washing up on the East Coast said on Thursday the carcasses are showing up at a rate that is seven times higher than usual.
“They were literally falling out of the trees and they were still dying”
Animal experts are trying to figure out what may have killed dozens of black birds that fell from the sky in Winnipeg’s North End on Wednesday.
Conservation officers have picked up more than 50 dead birds near the intersection of King Street and Dufferin Avenue, while the Winnipeg Humane Society took in 11 birds that were still alive.
Erika Anseeuw, the humane society’s director of animal health, said all the living birds were reasonably bright and active, although they cannot stand or fly.
The birds will be euthanized and sent to a pathology lab for autopsies.
Anseeuw would not speculate on what exactly may have killed the birds, but she suspects they may have accidentally gotten into something.
“My suspicion is this is what it’s going to be rather than any kind of apocalyptic foretelling of birds falling from the sky,” she said in an interview with CBC Radio’s Up to Speed program.
Possible factors may include exposure to disease or toxins, Anseeuw said.
People in the area told CBC News hundreds of black birds — possibly grackles — began flocking in a “bizarre manner” atop vehicles, in the trees and near businesses starting at around 7:30 or 8 a.m.
“There was probably, I would say … almost up to the thousand birds in the trees, and then I was looking up and then one fell right in front of me,” said Tanya Lee Viner.
Susan Tiganagis, who works at a Main Street chip shop, said she saw a “blanket of black” in the lane behind the store.
“My husband said, like, ‘This is a Hitchcock movie.’ It’s crazy!” Tiganagis said.
“They were just dizzy. They didn’t know where they were going. I’ve never seen them act like that,” she added.
Later that morning, dozens of birds started dropping from the sky. The streets near the intersection of King and Dufferin became littered with bird carcasses.
“They were literally falling out of the trees and they were still dying,” Tiganagis said.
“You couldn’t step anywhere without stepping on a bird.”
Workers at a nearby community services agency said they saw dozens of birds falling from the sky at around 10:30 a.m.
“It was like raindrops falling,” said one employee.
The workers said they called the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba Conservation and Environment Canada to see if anyone would investigate what happened.
Finally, a passing police officer called conservation officers and authorities arrived on Wednesday afternoon to pick up the deceased birds.
I was reading Stewart’s blog, http://darkmattersalot.com, and I got sidetracked. The video he posted reminded me that I live in a zone that is predicted to have a 9.0 earthquake any time soon. We are overdue by three hundred years or so.
So to all of you living in such dangerous zones remember to pay attention to the animals around you. They are our best advance warning system. Lou

I am sorry I have not been able to watch much else going on around the world, although my theories, if correct, should apply. Although I believe humans have this amazing quantum mind, when used correctly it can do amazing things (good and bad). Unfortunately, I think our other senses pale in comparison to that of many animals, probably because they rely on them daily for their survival.
I mentioned to everyone that my family on my father’s side (Originally Simonsen) actually came from the Netherlands via New Amsterdam, NY to America in the 1600′s. I was shocked to find out later on they actually fought for the British! My mother’s side was mostly English and came through Plymouth and Ipswitch, Mass and were all Patriots, which now explains why my parents argued a lot… It was searching through Ancestry.com that got me interested in research after 27 years of engineering. I digress.
I did plot a recent sinkhole and fish kill in Europe and I noticed very strong jet streams across that area of Northern Europe.
So here is what is/was going on in the Netherlands this past week:
A brood of baboons living in a Netherlands zoo have been spooked for days. Staff at Emmen Dierenpark say the primates have been huddled together, barely eating or moving. It’s the fourth time in 20 years that the 112 east African bamboos have been traumatized for some unexplained reason, BBC reports. The hamadryas baboons have also turned their backs on zoo visitors.“They became panicked at the end of the day on Monday, they were hysterical, not jumping around but behaving strangely,” zoologist Wijbren Landman told Agence France-Presse on Friday.
So here is what the overhead jet stream has been doing (I drew in some imaginary strings just for effect):
and here is what the birds were doing in New Jersey as Hurricane Sandy was approaching
Now you don’t suppose those birds and animals can sense those energetic quantum particles stringing down from and along the overhead jet streams before severe weather do you? Maybe they can sense ultra low frequencies and such? I have written before and it is widely reported about weird animal behavior before Earthquakes. I can remember my uncle John telling me when I was a kid that whenever the birds line up on the power lines, bad weather is approaching. And I have already linked Earthquakes and Severe Weather. So doesn’t it all make more sense now in a weird quantum kind of way? Animals, birds and we humans are not as bad off as the fish, who lose their oxygen, but I have a sense we are all getting ionized in a low energy nuclear sort of way when the local concentration of this stuff increases along those jet streams.
Even if you don’t believe my theory, at least believe that some weird s#@* happens along strong jet streams.
This compilation is made by a Christian fellow so the signs will be Christian. Personally, I think the God we should be worshiping is Nature, the environment, Gaia, the Earth Mother, and she is annoyed to say the least. Lou
TOKYO — The stricken nuclear power plant at Fukushima has probably been leaking contaminated water into the ocean for two years, ever since an earthquake and tsunami badly damaged the plant, Japan’s chief nuclear regulator said on Wednesday.
In unusually candid comments, Shunichi Tanaka, the head of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, also said that neither his staff nor the plant’s operator knew exactly where the leaks were coming from, or how to stop them.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power, has reported spikes in the amounts of radioactive cesium, tritium and strontium detected in groundwater at the plant, adding urgency to the task of sealing any leaks. Radioactive cesium and strontium, especially, are known to raise risks of cancer in humans.
Mr. Tanaka’s comments bring into sharp relief the precariousness of the cleanup at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, where core meltdowns occurred at three of the six reactors. A critical problem has been the groundwater that has been pouring into the basements of the damaged reactor buildings and becoming contaminated. Workers have been pumping the water out to be stored in dozens of tanks at the plant, but have not stopped the inflow.
Until recently, Tokyo Electric, known as Tepco, flatly denied that any of that water was leaking into the ocean, even though various independent studies of radiation levels in the nearby ocean have suggested otherwise. In recent days, Tepco has retreated to saying that it was not sure whether there was a leak into the ocean.
Mr. Tanaka said that the evidence was overwhelming.
Once a lush and healthy estuary, the Indian River Lagoon is now an enigmatic death trap. Running along 40 percent of Florida’s Atlantic coast, the lagoon’s brackish waters harbor a mysterious killer that has claimed the lives of hundreds of manatees, pelicans, and dolphins.
Nobody knows why.
In April, NOAA declared the spate of manatee deaths an Unusual Mortality Event, a designation granted when marine mammal deaths or strandings are significantly higher than normal, demand immediate attention, and are the result of a common but unknown cause. Soon, the bottlenose dolphin die-off may be given the same designation.
“We have to hope we can find the answer, because until we do, we don’t know how we can help prevent it in the future,” said Jan Landsberg, a research scientist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Since last July, 51 dolphins, 111 manatees, and as many as 300 pelicans have perished in the lagoon. The deaths don’t follow an obvious pattern: Manatees are dying so quickly that some still have food in their mouths, while the dolphins and pelicans appear to be starving to death.
Investigators don’t know if the die-offs are the work of the same killer, or if by some coincidence, nature has produced three unrelated carcass piles at once. The only clear link so far is the lagoon, a treasured and frail ecosystem that’s home to more than 3,500 species of plants and animals.
Scientists searching for the killer are following a long, branching trail; the story begins years ago, when a prolonged drought and cold snap set the lagoon’s resources toppling like a string of dominoes. Now, a multi-year, $3.7 million protection initiative has been adopted in an attempt to put the brakes on the lagoon’s collapse, and prevent future crashes. But its success depends on scientists uncovering the culprit behind the ecological mayhem.
Designated an “estuary of national significance” by the EPA in 1990, the Indian River Lagoon system stretches for 156 miles along Florida’s eastern coast. Though less than 6 feet deep on average, the lagoon is stuffed with more species of marine life than any other estuary in the continental United States. Salt marshes, mangrove swamps, oyster reefs, fish nurseries, and one of the densest sea turtle nesting sites in the western hemisphere are some of the ecological stars studding the stretch of coastline. Estimates suggest the barrier island complex brings in more than $3.7 billion each year from citrus farming, fisheries, recreation, and employment.
But there’s a darker side to the Sunshine State’s eastern oasis. Surrounded by developments, the lagoon has, for decades, been the drainage pool for leaking septic tanks, polluted streams, and storm water rich with nutrients from fertilizers. It’s a wind-driven system, and without tides to push the water around and flush it out, segments stagnate and pollutants accumulate.
Running from Ponce de Leon Inlet in the north to Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach county, the lagoon’s waters flow into canals and through locks, twisting and pooling into three main segments: The Indian River, the Mosquito Lagoon, and the Banana River.
It’s here, in and around the Banana River that scrapes the shores of Cape Canaveral, that the animals are dying.
The trouble, scientists suggest, began a few years ago when a prolonged drought descended upon the region. Normal evaporation combined with scarce rainfall boosted the lagoon’s salinity; at one point, it was saltier than the ocean – an environment that tipped the normal balance of species and created a shifting, wobbling base for the ecosystem to rest on.
Then, in winter 2010, a cold snap settled in.
Freezing temperatures killed the macroalgae that normally live near the lagoon’s surface. As these seaweeds withered and died, their sequestered nutrients flooded the already nutrient-saturated, saline water, creating a potent soup that would fuel the lagoon’s collapse: A blue-green algae superbloom.
For nine months, beginning in early spring 2011, the northern lagoon’s waters were seasick-green. The bloom intensified through the summer and fall, at one point covering 130,000 acres. Cloudy, phytoplankton-filled waters shaded the lagoon’s floor, depriving its seagrasses of the sunlight they needed for photosynthesis and life, and stealing oxygen from fish.
Eventually, about 60 percent – or 47,000 acres – of the lagoon’s seagrasses died, including most of the seagrass beds in the Banana River. “We’ve used seagrasses since the 1980s to assess the lagoon’s environmental condition,” said Troy Rice, with the St. Johns River Water Management District, and director of the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary program. “They’re considered the primary indicator of the lagoon’s health.”
Rice has been studying and tracking the lagoon’s changes in fortune for years. Without those seagrass beds, he says, the estuary lost its ability to buffer environmental insults. Sediments that would normally be trapped by the grasses were left floating; nutrients normally sequestered were free to feed further algal blooms. Invertebrates and fish that lived in the seagrass beds were left homeless, manatees left without their primary, grassy food source.
In the summer of 2012, the lagoon turned the color of paper bags as a brown algal bloom took hold, further shading and choking off any recovering seagrasses.
Manatees in Distress
Manatees started dying in the Banana River last July. First a trickle and then a flood, the die-off reached its peak this spring, when more than 50 manatees were found in March. Since then, it has slowly tapered off. Now, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, in charge of investigating the manatee deaths, reports that carcasses are retrieved every other week or so. “At least the deaths from this cause are not showing up as frequently,” FWC spokesperson Kevin Baxter said in early June.
So far, the 111 carcasses recovered have provided little information about what’s killing the gentle marine mammals. Other than being dead, the manatees look remarkably normal. Whatever is killing them strikes quickly and without much warning. Biologists haven’t been able to find any suffering manatees – just dead ones – and are missing crucial behavioral observations.
“They’re in good body condition from what we can tell, no other diseases or signs of trauma,” said Martine DeWit, a veterinarian with the FWC who does necropsies on the dead manatees.
It appears the animals are dying from shock and drowning. Some still have food in their mouths – but it’s the wrong kind of food, if you’re a manatee. Instead of sea grass, pathologists are finding macroalgae, mostly Gracilaria, in the manatees’ digestive tracts. This type of seaweed is normally not toxic. But, “on microscopic examination of the tissues, we found some inflammation in the wall of their gastrointestinal system,” DeWit said, noting that the changes were only minor. “Our first thought is it has to be something associated with the algae – something in the sediment, absorbed by the algae, or a compound of the algae itself.”
Searches for signs of infection or toxin exposure have produced nothing. Looking in the lagoon for toxins, such as brevetoxin, saxitoxin, domoic or okadaic acids has also led nowhere. “None of the usual culprits are out there,” Landsberg said. “But then there’s always the unknown ones.”
If an anonymous toxin is on the loose in the Indian River Lagoon, finding out what it is will take time. If microbes or sediments are hitching a ride on macroalgae and killing the manatees, finding out why, and what, will also take time. “It’s not CSI, it doesn’t take an hour,” Landsberg said.
So far, scientists’ best guess is only that the manatee die-off is linked to the loss of seagrass, though the connection isn’t obvious. But even if that manatee mystery is solved, there’s no guarantee the same culprit is responsible for the demise of the lagoon’s other victims.
And Then There Were Dolphins
Starting in February, pelicans in the lagoon began dying. For two months, starving birds fell from the sky, spotting the shores with their skinny, wrecked bodies. But by the time manatee mortalities were at a peak this spring, the pelican die-off had waned.
And then the calls started coming in about dead dolphins.
As of July 3, 51 dolphins have been pulled from the northern and central parts of the Indian and Banana Rivers. It’s the largest dolphin die-off in the Indian River Lagoon system, said Megan Stolen, a biologist with Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute. Stolen is part of the team responding to reports of dolphin carcasses; she says only one suffering dolphin has been found alive, and that he’s doing well in dolphin rehab.
Unlike the manatees, the dolphins Stolen finds are not in good shape. Some carcasses are in pieces and too incomplete to learn anything from; many bear the marks of a puzzling plethora of postmortem shark bites. The ones that are intact are mostly sacs of skin and bones. “About 85 percent of those are emaciated,” Stolen said. “Which is pretty extreme.”
Whether the skinny dolphins are the result of depleted or shifting fish stocks, parasites, toxins, disease, or something that simply makes it hard for them to catch fish, is unknown. What scientists do know is that the number of dolphin mortalities during the first half of a normal year is around 17. With roughly 700 dolphins living in the entire lagoon, this year’s mortality rate is already approaching 10 percent of the population.
If NOAA declares an Unusual Mortality Event, the teams attending to the dolphins will get some help from the federal government, in the form of labs, scientists, and funding. That should help narrow the search for suspects.
“The entire lagoon is changing,” Stolen said. “We’re trying to look at the whole picture.”
But putting that picture together is not only difficult, it may be impossible.
“I think, always, the best approach with these investigations is to start with the most obvious hypothesis first,” Landsberg said. “Since these are all occurring coincidentally, is it coincidental or not?”
The scariest option is that the deaths might be unrelated to one another, and simply the result of a multi-pronged ecological catastrophe. Connecting crashing seagrasses with vegetarian manatees, fish-eating mammals and fish-eating birds is not easy. Complicating the picture is that other seagrass-eating species, such as sea turtles, appear unaffected. Other fish-eating species, such as cormorants and herons, are mostly unperturbed. The bull shark population scavenging the dolphin carcasses doesn’t appear to be in trouble. And though the dolphins and pelicans both eat fish, they’re not necessarily eating the same fish. Feasibly, Landsberg says, a toxin could be involved — but for whatever reason is not working its way evenly through the food web.
“It’s like trying to do this big jigsaw puzzle, looking at all this environmental information,” Landsberg said. “You could spend forever going down all these different rabbit holes and getting nowhere.”
The different teams working on solving the mysteries are still assuming the deaths are linked: Whatever is at large in the lagoon is exacting its effects on very specific populations, in a very specific area – for now.
With no clear culprit in sight, scientists, rescuers, and residents of the six counties bordering the estuary are on alert. A brown algal bloom is already coloring the Mosquito Lagoon, appearing earlier than it did last year. Florida newspapers are criticizing the state’s inability to enact tougher environmental regulations and keep Florida’s waterways clean, claiming that “State leaders won’t act to stop summer slime” and ”Gov. Rick Scott does not seem to care” (estimates place the 2011 algal bloom-related economic losses at somewhere between $230 and $470 million, but Florida’s governor vetoed a $2-million grant for the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute to study the lagoon), and applauding the Sierra Club for its move to report “Slime Crimes.”
“Any issues in the environment that are associated with animals or people affect the other,” said Mike Walsh, a a veterinarian at the University of Florida. Walsh and his colleagues are helping with the investigations (see sidebar). “If you have an algal overbloom that kills the seagrass, that affects the fish, affects dolphins, affects manatees — every one of these changes can have substantial long term side effects.”
The manatee population in particular is suffering. In addition to the mysterious east coast killer, hundreds of manatees have died from a particularly vicious red tide that settled off the state’s southwest coast. Those mass mortality events, plus boating accidents and deaths from natural causes, bring the total manatee deaths this year to 672. That’s already higher than five of the last six years, and is more than 10 percent of the state’s manatee population, estimated to be roughly 5,000 animals. In 2007, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommended upgrading the manatees’ listing from “endangered” to “threatened.” Now, budget cuts have put that move on hold, says U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokesman Chuck Underwood. “This isn’t an indication that we know something about what the recent deaths mean,” he said. “It is strictly budget-related.”
What this year’s grim total means for the manatee population is still unknown, but it might take years for the population to recover.
“It’s a huge number, more than any other year at this point in time,” said Patrick Rose, president of the Save the Manatee Club, an aquatic biologist who’s studied manatees for decades. Rose suggests the Lagoon could take as long as a decade to recover. “From this point forward, if we do everything right, we’re still talking maybe 5-10 years for recovery,” he said. “The system is so unstable right now that it’s going to have to stabilize, even if it stabilizes in a much worse state.”
The lagoon is not without hope, though. Late last year, the St. Johns River Water Management District announced the adoption of a four-year, $3.7 million Indian River Lagoon Protection Initiative. Designed to help heal the ailing estuary, the initiative is still in its early stages. But a multidisciplinary taskforce of scientists is already studying and monitoring the embattled ecosystem, trying to sort out what triggered the blooms in 2011 and 2012.
“The lagoon’s health had been improving, and then out of the blue came this unforeseen superbloom,” said William Tredik, the Indian River Lagoon Protection Initiative’s team leader. “The algal blooms seem to have been the catalyst for a lot of other things, but we don’t have all those links figured out yet.”
Initial work is focusing on the northern lagoon, the killing zone that has been the most besieged by blooms. Then, when the taskforce has a better idea of what ignited the algal explosion, potential solutions will be suggested — ideas that could range from adding drainage canals to transplanting seagrasses to overhauling septic systems.
“It’s a beautiful area down there, just breathtaking when you’re out on the water,” Tredik said. “We want to make it as good as we can.”

All, as I have been supplementing my Google Earth plots of sinkholes with Fish and Animal killings and strandings along with doppler radar and satellite, I ran across news of the massive strandings and deaths of sea lion pups off the California, Coast starting this Spring. It just so happens that this fits with a large area of Doppler reflectivity that I have been watching off the San Diego Area and to the North along with sinkholes formed inland. I actually found another sinkhole in the news by looking at the high reflectivity and Googling that area of the country (Selma, CA).
Last week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) took the extraordinary step of declaring an Unusual Mortality Event for California sea lions. Since the first of the year, more than 1,000 California sea lion pups have beached themselves from San Diego up the coast to Santa Barbara. More sea lion pups have stranded in the past three months than are typically seen in an entire year and the numbers continue to rise by the day. The pups are too weak and thin to forage for food– without human care, they won’t survive. The increase in sea lions washing up on local beaches intensified over the Easter weekend and scientists have expressed serious concern as the traditional peak stranding season is just beginning.
From my research, that area of of persistant Doppler reflectivity off San Diego and to the North may indicate a large concentration of dark/vacuum energy particles from the Sun stringing into the area from the jet stream above. They may be ionizing the dissolved Oxygen and killing off the pup’s food supply, among other things. It should dissipate after those strings decay and/or a low pressure system approaches and they recede into the Earth. Unfortunately this stuff also appears to attract more particles/strings once it is in an area as it seems that multiple holes tend to open up in the same area. One thing I learned from studying LENR (low energy nuclear reactions) is that atomic hydrogen (H+) appears to collapse, which is what I think the Sun is doing and expelling it towards Earth. I am getting the strong suspicion that this stuff, as it decays, pops back out as atomic hydrogen and grabs ahold of ionized Oxygen in the atmosphere and that is what the doppler is picking up, it is FORMING WATER FROM AIR (2H+ + O– = H2O).
I know it’s strange, but my research says those particles will gradually ionize and decay all biology in an area, including humans. In other words we are all aging at different rates depending upon the local concentrations of this stuff. We are not getting older, we are DECAYING. I am beginning to believe it could really rain 40 days and 40 nights if we get a high dose of this stuff from the Sun or a comet in our atmosphere if it can form water from air.
