Intrigued by the massive bird and fish deaths in Alabama? It’s also happening elsewhere, in the eastern and southern United States and around the world – Gizmodo has a practical card of all American events.
The Activist Post offers a few theories. Before reading them, however, keep in mind what Yahoo News has to say on the subject:
“… [M]Donkey deaths happen all the time and are usually unrelated … Federal records show they happen on average every other day somewhere in North America. Usually, we don’t notice them and don’t try to link them to each other …
And there have been far greater deaths than the 3,000 Arkansas robins. Twice in the summer of 1996, more than 100,000 ducks died of botulism in Canada. “
Here are the theories listed by the Activist Post:
General explanations: These include lightning, hail, mid-air collisions, power lines and New Year’s fireworks for birds, and disease for fish. But it seems like a hell of a coincidence, and where are the birds roasted in love at first sight?
Meteor showers: During this period of intense seasonal meteor shower, some people have reported hearing sound explosions in the area which may have been a sign of a local shock wave.
New Madrid fault line: Could this be related to recent earthquake activity along a fault line that runs along the mid-eastern part of the United States? Could it have dispersed pollutants in the water and the atmosphere?
Government test: Only some species have been affected, but throughout the region. And some reports have indicated that bird organs have been liquefied – could this involve species-specific biological weapons?
GMO: There are other deaths that occur in other species, such as bees and bats. Some believe they could be poisoned by genetically modified plants.
Geoengineering: Could spraying in the area have caused this?
HAARP: Birds and fish navigate in a highly coordinated fashion. Could the HAARP network in Alaska have bypassed its navigation systems? Or is it the result of electromagnetic pollution from other human devices?
Scalar weapons: Some wonder if the cause is directed energy beam weapons deployed by satellite.
Blue Beam Project: Another theory is a sound generating weapon.
Geomagnetic changes and other earth changes: The magnetic pole is moving. Add to that a declining magnetosphere and falling oxygen levels, as well as increased solar activity and magnetic storms.
Update: A Wisconsin lab has apparently determined that the birds, at least, died of blunt trauma.
