2017-01-06 - Elephant drops dead in field in Kanchanpur District (Nepal):

2017-01-07 - Hydrogen sulfide killing fish in Lake Averno (Italy):

Quote: "Lake Averno is situated in the Campi Flegrei volcanic field. Today, hydrogen sulfide present in the waters killed hundreds of fish in the lake. Is that a sign of an imminent eruption of Campi Flegrei? Hundreds of dead fish were found along the shores of Lake Averno in the volcanic field of Campi Flegrei. Next eruption? via Leggo. Today, you will only hear talking about this sudden and strong smell of sulfur around the shores of the lake of Averno, the historical door to the underworld according to Romans."

Quote: "This would be due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide in the water that comes from the volcanic activity below the water surface – emission of fumaroles releasing the strong smell of sulfur."

Note: The bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide do grow around volcanic vents, so if Campi Flegrei is pushing lava closer to the surface, then bacterial mats will start growing wherever the water temps rise, there's little or no oxygen in the water, and there's biomatter (like dead fish) or methane present. The story says maybe it's a natural event, as if that means it's of no concern. The Permian-Triassic extinction event - the Great Dying - was a natural event too, and it wiped out most oxygen-using life on this planet. The same thing is happening now. Maybe your toe tag will end up with the words 'natural event' on it, but dead is still dead...

2017-01-10 - Ten million bees found dead in coastal São Paulo (Brazil), blamed on pesticides:

Quote: "An estimated 10 million honey bees were killed over several days in the countryside of São Paulo state, Brazil. The suspected cause of death is reported to be airborne pesticides."

Quote: "The offending pesticides were sprayed on a nearby sugarcane field. The owner of the field, Ferrari Mill, claims that they did not spray their pesticides over the apiary and are not sure what caused the pesticides to migrate. São Paulo's Public Prosecutor's office has announced an investigation and potential litigation against Ferrari Mill. Ferrari Mill has sent bee corpses to a biologist to investigate whether their pesticides are what killed the bees."

Note: So they don't know what killed them - maybe those pesticides didn't migrate. You know what's an airborne pesticide? Hydrogen sulfide - it's neurotoxic just like pesticides, and it's airborne, and this area is right next to the ocean, and nobody controls when and where it blows...

2017-01-11 - Largest coral reef in the Northern Hemisphere almost dead:

Quote: "The Sekiseishoko coral reef, the largest reef both in Japan and in the Northern Hemisphere, is 70 percent percent dead, and soon could face total extinction due to global warming, according to Environment Ministry of Japan. Up to 70.1 percent of Japan's largest coral reef is dead due to bleaching caused by global warming, according to a Japanese Environment Ministry report based on an extensive study that examined conditions at 35 locations in a 20-by-15 kilometer area."

Note: The reefs in Hawaii, Florida and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia are all dying too. It won't be long until the oceans are watery poison-spewing cemeteries, the same as has happened before in Earth's past...
