ravens besieged
Is anyone else as freaked out by this as I am right now? I feel like I'm watching a movie or reading a Sci-Fi novel. WTF is going on??

Birds and Fish are now Dying all Around the World

This sort of thing literally does happen all the time, especially in periods of such extreme weather as we have been having (both great cold in the north and considerable heat in the south). There are a series of logical causes to each incident, mostly separate and discrete (the great cold and shocks to nesting colonies from New Year fireworks have been related in a couple of cases), and it is just that the media has been reporting on them as something inexplicable and unprecedented.

In short, and I say this as a media professional of 20 years standing, we're shit at science in journalism ;-)

I'm not that disbturned about it, But I understand but this has happened before. Here in Maryland, we've had over 2 million fish found dead the other day. There are many, many rasons it happens, but it does happen somewhere around the world everyday. Animals are stressed like people, and many of them die. So you sill see mass deaths of birds and fish...and other animals too. Several years ago there have occurances of mass cattle deaths all over the world. It's part of nature.

My friend at work thinks we're going to experience a blackout like in FlashForward at some point.

I like the scifi theory x

The fish are easily explained by several possible reasons (illegal dumping and fishing via dynamite and electricity). So are frozen birds. But some of the bird kills are hard to explain, such as the compression wounds in the mid USA.

This is just not a coincidence anymore!

And I'm not believing their reasons for them. I might accept the fireworks for the first one...might mind you. But then another batch and they give that lame excuse? I think not. A little to close to X-Files if you ask me.

There are no dead birds in Manitoba. I don't know what else to say except some of those reports are made up.

In a week, if a big cover up emerges I can eat my words of course but I don't think there is one.
