    I was worried about the dolphins at Folly Beach last summer (one of the major kill sites now). At that time, the dolphins were acting unusual, following me, trying to communicate?, and so close to the shore!! Honestly, I was a bit freaked out when the natives told me that they had never heard of that before in decades... plus, I felt kind of funny after that swim (last one for me), but I washed off fast afterwards…ugh. I’m sure trace nasties were in that water even then. God bless those gorgeous creatures. They were intelligent enough to try to seek help from me and have long been known to save people endangered in the ocean. It's time for reciprocation!!!

    The Gulf Stream has been damaged, by oil and Corexit, this has churned up the methane at the bottom of the ocean, kicking it up into the troposphere. As the ice sheets melt the permafrost contains methane, which will kill everything, as it is released.
    The birds and fish died of lack of oxygen.
    It is cause by the Earth being poisoned and NO ONE IS STOPPING IT. People are too afraid or disinterested to do anything about it.
    An indian medicine women told me once,
    "first the animals will die, then the people."
    Save food now, while it is still around.
    Buy all weather clothes to keep you warm, as it is going to get really cold.....

    Ocean Warming is Global Cooling!

    Test the water, closest to the dead fish..
    look for high levels of Methane.

    Then test O2 levels.

    I'm sure you will find an active fault line or underwater volcano in the river the fish are found in.

  • Clearly the bad economy has not been as bad on the retailers. There were many online and offline retailers that reported decent season .

  • I was a bit freaked out when the natives told me that they had never heard of that before in decades
