500 More Dead Sea Animals

From: Natural News

Another mysterious wave of dead sea animals has washed ashore in Peru, the possible consequence of ongoing radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility in Japan. BBC News reports that 500 dead sea animals were recently discovered on Peru’s northern coastline, some 250 miles north of the capital city of Lima, with no obvious explanation as to why this occurred.

The latest of several mass die-offs in recent years, the rotting corpses were found on Anconcillo Beach, located in Peru’s Ancash region. Both young and old sea lions were found at the site, which the local governor blamed on fishermen who may have poisoned them while they searched for food at the shoreline. Others like the environmental group Orca, however, say oil exploration is probably the cause.

As investigations continue, a definitive cause of the deaths has yet to be determined. The Maritime Institute (Imarpe), in a government report, denied that oil exploration had anything to do with the deaths. Meanwhile, Peruvian police are reportedly looking into other possible causes of the deaths, including entanglement in fishing nets or the accidental ingestion of plastic.

I read the full article and they say the Fukushima radiation could be to blame here and I believe this might be it. I don’t understand why authorities aren’t considering this; it’s clear this is a strong possibility and they should address it with all they humanly can. Hiding behind lies will only make it worse if it turns out Fukushima is to blame.

You might be right, Andrew! And they are crazy to try to hide this when everyone is realizing what is happening. Just recognize this and try to do something about it. It seems some people never learn from the lessons of history and always try to put the blame on something or someone else.
