Did The BP Oil Spill Cause 100's of Thousands of Fish And Birds To Drop Dead On NYE? We Investigate...


As previously reported, officials are investigating what caused thousands of birds to fall out of the sky on New Year's Eve, while about 100 miles away thousands of fish were found dead in the Arkansas River.

On New Year's Eve night, thousands of blackbirds literally fell out of the sky, dead. Officials dressed in full HazMat gear cleaned up the mess, which caused locals to question whether the area is safe.

Officials said that the birds were killed from blunt force trauma from some event.




About 100 miles away as many as 100,000 fish were found dead floating in a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River.

Officials believe the fish were somehow poisoned because only one species was found dead.

They are saying that there is no danger to any humans in the area.

Officials said the birds usually don't fly at night, but on New Year's Eve there were some fireworks in the area. They believe the birds got spooked left their roosts and were struck by something, possible a wind gust or lightning.

But should we be worrying?

That depends on each person.

It gets weirder...

The nation of Saudi Arabia has reportedly placed a vulture under arrest on the grounds that the bird could be an Israeli spy.

Are these dead birds and fish linked to the BP Oil Spill??


Birds are the single most populous species on earth. There are literally billions of them inhabiting every inch of our world. Because of this, scientists call them an indicator species.

“Birds are excellent indicators because we know so much about their biology and life histories. Birds are found almost everywhere in the world and in almost every habitat. They eat a variety of foods and have a broad range of niche requirements,”
according to Dr. Roger Lederer, who is a retired professor of Biological Sciences at CSU, and has been studying birds for more than 40 years.

Since birds are fairly high up on the food chain, changes in the environment are rapidly reflected in birds.

The recent sudden death of 5,000 blackbirds in Beebe, Arkansas, and more than 500 dead birds of the same species a few days later in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana, plus additional bird deaths in Gilbertsville, Kentucky, raise questions about what the areas have in common and why all the birds suddenly died within days of each other.

Beebe, Arkansas and Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana are just 381 miles apart; a virtual stone’s throw for most birds. A map of the Southeastern United States shows that you can draw almost a straight line between the two towns. If you add the Kentucky location, another 781 miles away, the line only takes only a slight turn to the Northeast.

Geographically, the areas have variations topography and temperature, but all are considered temperate with seasonal changes, and ample variations in habitat for bird life to thrive. What they also have is common is weather influence from the Gulf of Mexico. Many storms that originate in the Gulf make their way inland, as far north as New York on occasion.

While some may consider it an unfounded speculation, one must consider the long term effects of the massive about of chemicals used in the Gulf oil spill as a possible cause for the bird deaths. Enough time has elapsed since the April 20, 2010 disaster to allow the chemicals to work their way through the environment.

During the height of the oil spill disaster, nearly 2 million gallons of Corexit was poured into the Gulf of Mexico. Corexit goes through a molecular change when it comes into contact with warm water; it changes from a liquid to a gas and evaporates into clouds. Corexit is toxic at only 2.61 PPM.

“Corexit is one of the most environmentally enduring, toxic chemical dispersants ever created to battle an oil spill.”
Furthermore,
“A report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources warned that the BP oil spill would be the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history, threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent.”
The Russian study warned of years of toxic oil rain, resulting in profound changes in the ecosystem.

...Wondering if whatever caused these Birds and Fish to die will eventually KILL US?

What do you think really happened here?
