tend to agree with him although we are now talking about at least 10 die offs ,
the velvet crabs ,do die in cold water the fish in brazil is a huge number
so it does seem to be linked with colder weather
i know it's been hard on the animals birds and fish for the first time ever we have started feeding the garden birds ,
the world has always had mini ice ages ,,i belong to a couple of weather and sceince sites and solar lows have been talked about ,the magnitic north which always wonders round is also being talked about (people seem to think it is in a fixed piont )and the gulf stream ,
strangly the jet stream has moved in the last 2 years ,in the winter ,normally over us now it's much further south ,which is why we are having harder winters and less storms ,it is bound to have an effect on birds and animals that are used to local conditions ,livestock pets have man helping out other species don't so they're much more liable to be effected
if it is weather it will have a knock on effect ,crops are planted for regional growth ,if those regions don't suit they will have to be grown else where ,it's happened time and again thoughout history ,they even used to at one time grow ceral in iceland ,in the feild ,they are doing it again ,using thermal energy in small amounts ,
not sure what's causing it haven't got a clue ,but something is ,and seeing as nature is all interlinked and is it called the butterfly effect ,it would be nice or not so nice to know
i'm sure it's not aliens though ;)
not an amigedon theory ,but we will have to adapt hopely it'll be the sun and it'll settle down in a little while
