What does it all mean? (post #1)

Recently the United States has experienced several fish and bird mass die offs. This has been a much discussed issue in the media. Even Jim Carey joked that the world was ending in reference to what has happened in Arkansas and Louisiana as well as other places around the country and world on Saturday Night Live. Many theories have been offered to explain these animal deaths ranging from secret weapons tests to nature to armageddon. What do you think? Please be respectful of others opinions while blogging

    I believe that since all these animals are dying off around the country many theories have been made by people because they want to know the cause, and seeing that so many birds and fish have died has brought a kind of fear to the people. Some believe its an illness, others that it was a trauma from the fireworks from new years. All of these could be possible causes of the die offs but no one is sure yet, and for those that expierenced this event might be concerned of what is going on.

  2. people make conspiracy and illogical theories based on things they do not understand, look at the JFK assassination for example, we dont have all the facts, so we make wild stories up. while i do not have a solid theory as to what caused this, i completely disagree with the whole end of the world scenario.

  3. In my opinion, I think the dying of all the fish and birds in various places in the world is a nature's way of keeping the food cycle in order by not allowing too many of a certain species to interfere and overrun the other fish and birds.

  4. I'm pretty scared about all this unknown deaths... They have claimed that this could be the end of the world and these events were said to be the begining of it in the bible. I have no idea what to think of this and I'm just hoping that this is all just going to roll over and no more deaths will come.

  5. I don't really have much to say on this topic, honestly. I don't have much knowledge of the fish species or the area, or many facts to go off of other than the water being extra cold. I don't want to slap on a theory just because it'll give me some sort of cause to fight or something to fear. It happened, I like Jimmy's thoughts that it's probably just nature regulating the population if anything.

  6. I belive the fish and bird die offs are a product of pollution. Ever since the golf oil spill there have been many fish dieing abviously from the oil. The birds may be diying from the all smog and pollution in the air which means we need to start taking care of the environment.

    ok first i want to say that was funny! XD but as for the birds and fish the animal reasearch guy said its happen before. truthfully i beleive we should let nature takes its course. it can take care of itself without our help. and if unfortuanatly the world comes to an end then i dont know. but im actually kind of interested in the temperature theory. i beleive that to be the closest explanation to why this happend. mayb it got too clod to fast and they couldnt reaspond to the situation fast enough.

  8. Im not concerned about this ocurrence at all. Water got too cold for the young fish, so they died. Probably somthing similar happened to the birds, like thier food source died from being too cold. Its definatly not the apocolipse and i dont think these ocurrences are related atb all considering they happened continents apart from eac other. People just need to stop freaking out when some wildlife dies off. After all, they are just animals.

    I believe that this issue is nothing to stress over because just as the man said in the first video the sky is not falling, this is just something that happens from time to time like in 1976 when 15 million fish died. It's part of life and we just have to deal with it and hope that it doesn't happen again. Just listen to Jim Carrey's opinion on the issue, it explains it all.lol.

    i do not believe people should worry about these events at all. its understandable that they died because of the temperature change. its not like there was nothing to cause the deaths of the fish. they werent used to the cold water so they didnt make it. as for the birds, i think their deaths arent much to worry about either. like the guy said in the video, things like this have happened before and nothing horrible followed. im not worried about what has happened.

  12. The events with the fish and birds are disturbing and mysterious, so naturally people scramble around trying to find an answer, no matter how outlandish it may seem to some. There will always be people that find certain events as signs of the end of the world, but I am not one of them so I will wait until there is an official report from an expert. I believe this is a natural occurence that will have a logical explanation in time if people just calm down and think clearly. Bauer/Sloan

    I highly doubt that the death of birds and fish means that the world is ending. I believe that government testing could have something to do with the recent deaths, due to the fact that its been an issue in the past, not just conserning animals, but humans as well. People have experienced the same thing has happening with jellyfish washing up on shore at local beaches in San Francisco.

  17. This is an odd event that has happened before, but no one knows why this happened in the first place, If this continues to happen the fish will slowly die off, and the fish supply could be cut of in that certain area. I believe that this is the job for Environmental scientist or an Ecologist to get involved in, they can decided wether this is due to the weather or other chemicals in the water.

  18. I think it's suspicious that these many different species of fish and birds are dying out all so close in time, but I don't think it's a sign of "the end of the world". For many years species have unfortunately become extinct or have even disappeared due to human domination, not superstition. Is it possible the animals died off due to any type of pollution or chemical incident caused by people? I'm not sure, but I think there must be a reasonable explanation.

  20. I believe that the fish may have died because of the cold weather. It makes perfect sense that such a massive amount of fish died due to the cold ocean water. Many people start bringing in their own theories, due to other theories that have been presented in the past, but these kind of things have happened before, and it's just nature taking its natural course.

    First off that Jim video was hilarious, but getting back to the topic. I believe that the fish might have died of a natural cause.Even though we should keep in mind that there are theories as said in the last paragraph before the first video. There can be secret weapons that could be being tested on fishes.As for the birds there is no explanantion but we should be concerned either way.

    I do not believe these are signs of the end of the world. Like the man in the video said, the deaths are most likely due to a dramatic temperature drop. Different species can be affected by changes in temperature. However, to me, the birds dying seems even stranger. There is probably a good explanation for why these deaths occurred, we just haven't found it yet.

  24. I think that peoples' conspiracies about the dying bird and fish is a sign of their ignorance. People do not read into the scientific facts and consider the environment that we're in and also the climate change.

    This topic is so depressing. :( Goes to show Jim Carey can make anything funny. So, fish dying being the end of the world....really? Maybe it's the temperature change, but that doesn't explain the birds. Im not a vegetarian I think they all decided they'd rather die on their own terms than be killed, sold or eaten by bass. haha *kidding* I feel sorry for the bass though. Oh, well more for me :)

    These deaths surprise me but I'm not too concerned about them. Like the guy in the video said, the fish and birds didnt know how soo to start migrating. Even birds that I see in galt, like the sandhill cranes, showed up late. We usually see them at an earlier time of year. But I don't think we should worry too much until we know the real cause behind these deaths.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well, I dont think this is a sign of the world ending or anything. All I know is that the water is really REALLY cold, and thats why the fish are dying. The Birds, I'm not so sure. Maybe it got cold up there too. I have to say though- it is kinda creepy. I mean, you're driving along, and all of a sudden, dozens of dead birds start hitting your windsheild. Its creepy yes, can it be explained? Probably.

  28. Danielle Smith, Sloan P1January 10, 2011 at 6:56 PM

    I don't buy into any of the end of the world talk. Animals die, it's a part of the whole nature cycle. It's not like fish or birds can go inside and curl up in their snuggies to gain warmth. These animals' deaths were probably caused by the temperature drop, but my guess is as good as everyone else's. It does make sense though; fish can't survive in water if it gets too cold. That theory sure does sound better than gggaaahhh everyone panic, the world is ending!I'm sure there will be plenty of tests done and speculation on those results, so we'll find out the cause soon enough.

  29. I think that it is just part of nature that animals die. There needs to be a levelness amount of species in nature. There can't be too many or too little. But I do think its wrong if these animals aren't dying from natural causes and are from humans.

  30. I think its slightly comical that it's record cold temperatures in the water while quite a large number of people are spouting off global warming theories. These events don't signify the end of the world to me. I think it could be because of global cooling! The world is gradually getting colder and even eventually the polar ice caps will expand so far that they conquer the world and the human race will cease to exist.

  32. I agree with what has been said by a few people. All these deaths could be due to the drastic changes in the weather. It could also be due to illness, Animals do die off in flocks, or waves due to that (eating the same rotting/toxic carcass, being exposed to certain temperatures etc). Both nature and human involvement determine a species existence in the present. For instance we have dropped tons of gallons of oil, gas etc into the ocean numerous times, so it could even be hypothesized that the waters are dangerous to certain species now. It is not the end of the world, as the gentleman in the video stated, the same thing happened in 1973. Nothing should be assumed, and we should keep using theories and exploring our options to find the real cause, instead of letting our popular emotion of fear run our investigations.

  33. I’d have to say that these occurrences are due to natural selection. It seems like these fish hit just the wrong period of time with the cold waters. They couldn’t handle the cold temperatures, which led them to die. Natural selection! Where nature kills off certain animals or species that can’t adapt to the new environments. Let’s face it, the environments around the globe are changing, it’s a natural process of the earth. Plus the fish were young. They probably hadn’t developed all the way or something along those lines. But yes, definitely nature taking its course. Same with the birds too. Some animals just can’t handle the new environments and temperatures, so natural selection kills them off. It’s just nature.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The occurrences of animal deaths in general, I believe, are caused by us humans and nature. We have greatly destroyed the earth, affecting the weather, and affecting nature. I don't believe that the world is coming to an end, but I believe that there are many more bad events to come. The animal die-off is only the beginning.

  35. There may have been an over abundance of fish. Many of the fish that died were young, so they did not know how to move to warmer water. Birds likely died as a part of nature as well. I do not think that anything too serious is going on. These types of things tend to happen every so often.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The mass death of those birds and fish may or may not be linked, but action should be taken. At this point the cause is unknown, but it is most likely that the mass dying has to do with the Earth's weather change. The man from the CNN video did say that this event had happened before, but I think that it should be taken as a warning to what might happen in the future. I don't believe in the world ending in 2012, but plans should be made to make sure that the human race doesn't change the earth to the point of no return.

  37. This is a very strange and intriguing phenomenon. However, I am not concerned and do not believe this is a sign of the apocalypse. Furthermore, I have not the slightest idea as to why these animals have died.

    I doubt that the fish and the birds are a sign that the world is coming to an end. As strange as it may be, there has to be some explaination. The world isn't just going to end for no reason. Something should be done to try an prevent further animal deaths and study this strange occurance. However, I'm sure there are some great conspiracy theories to try to explain the bird/fish deaths.

  47. Well to start off i think the death of the animals is not a big deal because it could just be the temperature and the death of the fish was caused by the cold water. And as of the birds i am not really concerned because the guy in the video said that this has also happened before and it didnt do much. All of these things doesnt mean the world is about to end!

  57. I think that the fish and birds are dying in certain parts of the world because there may be something harmful in the air or water around those animals. It may be that we are polluting the air or water or it may be some other unnatural world. I don't think it's the end of the world. I think we should find out what is killing these animals and find a solution to this problem.

  76. I'm sorry but I do not believe that the death of the birds and fish mean anything. For some reason people are always trying to find reasons for things that happen to coincide, even when there is no supernatural reason for it. The reason the birds died was blunt force trauma, most likely from hail, and the fish died from either disease or temperature changes in their water. I think that the bottom line is that the cause of most of these death was global climate change, as it caused the unusual weather. So what we should take away from this is that we need to take better care of our environment. But also I am 99.99% sure that the deaths do not mean that the world was ending, which I think is a good thing, so we should all look at the bright side, we get more days to live, instead of trying to make everyday the end of the world!

  77. I think we just had a few cold days which killed a few animals in the grand scheme of things and it is nothing to be worried about, this wont effect us directly anytime soon so I think we should just go on living our lives and not take this as a sign that the end of the world is really going to be in 2012. I think that we probably can make enough artificial fish food for the bigger fish to stop the problem from going to a bigger scale so we should look at that carefully and stop it, but I don't think it is anything to be concerned about.

    I believe that it's just nature taking its course. It sounds like there is a certain disease that is specific to that species. Along with deaths from the disease, the fish and birds also could have been shot as game. These deaths could build up and cause people to believe that this is no coincidence, but things do happen like this more often than one may believe. Diseases do spread between certain species, and the birds could have had a blood clot or disease that affects and kills them, while the fish could be swimming in water that causes them to die.

  81. I cannot fully believe that this event is the cause of some armageddon wihtout proof. That said these theories that people claim to be conspiracies and different ideas should not be so ridiculed because people simply want an answer to comfort themselves and believe they know what is going to happen. The theories people call insane and "crocks" could very well be the right answer and we have no place to judge them or their thoughts until we have definate proof and then can begin to work against stopping these scary events, armageddon or not.

    I feel as though there is some explanation for why millions of fish and birds have been dying. The world is not ending, people are just worried and want to have some explanation for these occurences whether they make sense or not. I'm sure all of this wildlife is probably just dying because of extreme temperature changes that they may not have encountered before. There is a reasonable explanation for everything, sometimes it just takes a while to find it. I do not believe we are currently experiencing the beginning of an armageddon.

  85. Woah. crazy lol. well seeing as how specific species or birds and fish have been killed by this, its likely that either certain areas were affected by the same thing or that these species are all susceptible to the same disease or chemical.
    Because this incident was so widespread, its more likely to be a biological than chemical cause of death, something that is all over the place, like a virus. Although viruses are not as potent when cold, neither are immune systems, so it could be possible that the cold spikes simply made these species a target for disease. If it was a chemical agent, it would have to be across huge areas, which would be very very bad lol.
    But I dont think this is any example of armageddon or like, evolution through natural selection, or anything crazy. Just most likely nature.

    First and foremost any living organism that dies is a loss to all because we all depend on all other living organisms to support our extravagant pet or eating habits. To say that these occurrences are out of order is something still to be seen by all. Most of the population have their own theories on why this has happened yet none have been proven to be true. Furthermore, one can only imagine if it will happen to us, and if it does, when??? Life will take its course with or without us... (Something to think about)

    Rest assured that December 21, 2012 is not the end of the world. There are over twelve different civilizations in the world that predict something happening on this particular date, however, those same calendars continue beyond the infamous 2012. What is a scientific fact is that on that day, the sun will be in perfect alignment with our galaxy, an event that only happens once every 25,000 years. So, with the coming event of this alignment (just short of two years away) it should not be surprising that the gravitational pull will have an affect on earth. Weather changes, for one, changes in climate conditions and patterns will, for the most part be confusing to life on earth, and not just with animals, but humans as well. As with any change, adjustments need to be made, and if a species is not strong enough to endure the change, then I believe extinction would be the right word for the outcome. The finding of dead birds and fish is not the only forms of life that is experiencing this change. Whales and seals have been washing up on the shores of the pacific, dead, for no apparent reason; and of course the hurricanes and tornado's that seem to be occurring at odd times of the year. The pattern continues, but it is evolutionary change, and it has been happening our entire lives; we just haven't been paying attention. I do believe, however, that finally mother earth is finally getting our attention.

Maybe all the birds are deciding to die so they dont have to suffer nd wait for the worlds end. and also like that one biology professor said, "they dont hit a power line for no reason.

    People will probably stop thinking that the deaths are unatural, once scientists find out a cause for these multiple deaths. It could be pollution that caused these deaths. The most likely cause is that the birds and fish were not used to the temperature and died from being in unfavorable conditions.

    It's very well possible that these birds and fish died due to a natural reason. although there are currently no explanations i'm thinking that there was a test of hazardous gas over Arkansas that killed the birds. Considering there are no active military bases in arkansas that would be testing gaseous substances then it is less likely. Considering the Fish, it is very well possible that the cold may have killed them because their bodies were not suited to withstand a certain temperature. Considering it was only one species this is not ruled out. Should it have been several different species, then far more nefarious hypothesis would be aroused.

  140. I don't have much to say on why the fish and the birds suddenly died. I believe that the drop in temperature of the water shocked the fish and they died as far as the birds, I think it was possibly something they ate.

People are saying things like it is near the end of the world and this is the start, but the fish and birds that died were smaller and weaker.

  146. After looking at a few comments, I agreed with most of them in the fact that this is nothing to become worried about. The reason that the fish died can be somewhere along the lines of the record cold tempuratures, and the same can be said for the birds. The birds may have died because the changing tempuratures tampered with their migration patterns, and they ended up flying into an electrical storm. Who knows right? Nevertheless, this is in no way an indication of the world ending. For those who believe that it is the worlding ending, no offense of course, but think about Y2K. Better?

  151. I believe that all these massive amounts of animals dying off is due to pollution. Over many centuries, we've been polluting the oceans and such. We also don't really know how the oceans and areas are being treated at the places where the animals are dying off. There may be secrets kept, etc. Also, the temperature changes may be been at fault. Much of the wildlife may have been late to migrate and simply died due to that. I don't think that these deaths foreshadow a very bad event to come, just simply mistakes and such and not being able to tolerate the temperature changes.

    The first explanation to rule out in this situation would be the end of the world. Once you've got your head on straight putting two and two together isn't as hard at all. I agree with the nature specialist that it was most likely cause by cold temperatures as I, myself, have noticed this winter has been a bit colder than most. Additionally, we cannot keep polluting here and there and everywhere and not expect it to ever have some significant impact on mother nature. If it wasn't the cold that got the fish, there's a million other things today that could've. The same goes for the birds. Maybe they weren't expecting the cold to be so sudden and by putting off migration, they met their end. By no means do dead birds and fish signal the end of the world.

  155. there are simple explanations to each of these occurences. the bird deaths could have been high altitude hail, lightning, or stess related due to fireworks and such on new years. the fish died because the cold temperature of the water. i dont think the world is ending.

    Honestly I think that everyone is over exaggerating this whole situation. I believe all this is non sense, the cause of these animals passing away is not from "the end of the worl as we know it" but more possibly from a bacteria or virus in the area. Things like this occur all the time... so why make false accusations?

  157. Unfortunately, the dying fish is not the only thing that humans fail to explain. Does it foreshadow judgement day? I don't think so. It is just another natural disaster in the form of the deaths of many, many fish.

  158. Everyone seems to agree that the fish and birds died out of coincidence through a drop in temperature. Which perhaps may be a side effect of global warming? Testing of the water should take place just to be on the safe side.

    Oh and I was disappointment with the lack of off-the-wall explanations.

  159. I think that the deaths of the spot fish are a part of nature, however multiple species dying around the same time makes me a little concerned. We need to monitor what we put into the air and water, and make sure that its not having a damaging effect on our ecosystem.

  161. I think that the mass killings of birds and crabs is very bizarre. The explanations for why some these birds turned up dead in mass numbers is also crazy. Some say they died from trauma, but the question is trauma from what? I think that the theories on some of the mass killings can be believable except for the one that 2012 will be the end of the world. I think that this mass killings of animals does hint at something affecting us in the future.

  162. i think that this is just nature at work. i do not think that the world is going to end because these events are taking place. i read somewhere that this has happened in the past so i think it is just normal.

  163. Birds falling out of the sky is not normal and i think theirs a problem in their envirement. Their could be different theories, but we would never find out what cause the birds to fall out of the sky.

  164. I agree that the fish and birds were dying because the water was super too cold for them. Like the man had said in the first video, this happens from time to time so it is probably just part of nature. Or maybe they got a diseases you never now this days it could happen.

  165. There is an over abundance of fish however Many of the fish that died were babies. so they did not know how to move to warmer water. I do not think that theres anything serious about this. These types of things tend to happen every so often and temporary.
