Comments From Rense Readers on Disappearance of Bugs, Birds, etc. Killed By Fukushima
In the mid Willamette Valley, I have a raspberry patch. There are some bumble and honey bees on the raspberry blossoms. Very few small birds now using the bird bath, unlike earlier this Spring. Some scrub jays and stellar jays still around. Much fewer swallows than last year. Drove to the coast, very few insects on windshield. Noticed that the tops of fir & evergreen trees around town are dead. A combination of lack of rain, radiation and other factors most likely stressing the trees.
Topographical locations, rain or lack of rain, wind patterns and lots of trees or little flora may account for those areas with die-off and some areas with less effect. GeoEngineering (chemtrails) putting nano particles of aluminum into the environment incorporating into the flora and fauna, as well as a fire accelerant, is making forest fires much, much hotter. Many are arson-caused.
The superstructure of America as designed by the founding fathers via the US Constitution is being dismantled piece by piece. Rense.com has covered quite well this ongoing process of destroying the American Republic and its people. When the White race in America becomes the minority in the nest 30 years, they will receive the South Africa treatment. It was not hard to see that when SA was turned over to the commie Black ANC government, under pressure from the libtards in Britain and the US, that another nail into the coffin of Western Civilization was hammered in.
Thank you, Jeff
‘Ecological Armageddon’: Plummeting insect populations could ravage life on Earth
Researchers from Raboud University in the Netherlands made the discovery following a decades-long study of nature reserves across Germany.
Since 1989, the team has been collecting insect samples across 63 sites using mesh tents known as malaise traps. After measuring each year’s samples by weight, scientists found that the average fell by more than 75 percent over the 27-year period. During the summer months, the fall was measured at around 82 percent.
Insects are essential for life on Earth as they act as pollinators and prey for other species. Increased urbanization, habitat loss and pesticide use are being blamed for the declining population.
Caspar Hallmann, a member of the research team at Radboud, described the figures as “very alarming.”
In recent years, biologists have begun to cite the ‘windshield phenomenon’ as a measure of the decline, noting that they are no longer scraping splattered insects from their car windshields after lengthy drives.
Another member of the Raboud team, Professor David Goulson of Sussex University in the UK, told the Guardian that he believes the phenomenon is a symptom of the vanishing population.
“I think that is real,” said Goulson. “I drove right across France and back this summer – just when you’d expect your windscreen to be splattered all over – and I literally never had to stop to clean the windscreen.”
6 hospitalized after swarm of bees attacked LA shoppers, firefighters https://on.rt.com/8nfa
‘Gigantic mob’ of bees attack in California, six people hospitalized — RT US News
Six people were hospitalized after a swarm of bees attacked people on the outskirts of Los Angeles on Saturday, forcing authorities to cordon off the area.
Plummeting insect numbers have been highlighted at various times throughout the last decade.
Numbers of grassland butterflies have plummeted across Europe over the last two decades, according to researchpublished by the European Environment Agency in 2013.
According to a Center for Biological Diversity report published in March this year, more than 700 North American bee species are declining due to habitat loss and pesticide use.
A 2015 report from a United Nations group found that populations are declining for more than 35 percent of bee species, while 9 percent of butterfly and bee populations face extinction.
