Massive Animal deaths around the globe WHY? 200 Million Tons of Aluminum Aerosol Chemtrail Poisoning All Life! Scientific Proof!
I have seen a few posts about Massive deaths of Fish and Animals around the World. So I began to dig around and this is what I have found out that a massive cover up is now going on by the Government about the HARRP Project and Using Cloud-Seeding GeoEngineering to Solve Global Warming! For copies of lab results showing aluminum, barium, manganese, thorium, nickel, and many other toxic heavy metals at levels 100′s of X over the max limit for human exposure.

Dead seal numbers declared ‘unusual event,’ get fed attention
WIRE AND STAFF REPORTS

GLOUCESTER, Mass. —Federal officials are stepping up an investigation into the deaths of 146 harbor seals along the New England coast since September after samples of five of them tested positive for the Influenza A virus, authorities say.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the deaths have been declared “an unusual event,” enabling the agency to pour more resources into the probe. The declaration came after consultations with a panel of international experts established under the Marine Mammal Protection Act to monitor and investigate sea animal health concerns.
The 146 seals generally were less than a year old and had healthy appearances. They were found in Maine, New Hampshire and across northern Massachusetts, including along Cape Ann.
The deaths of the young harbor seals grabbed the attention of scientists in late September when six carcasses were found on Rye Beach in New Hampshire. Some of the seals had been dead for up to two weeks and others only for a matter of a couple of days. By mid-October the number of dead seals had risen to nearly 100.
At least two young seals were found dead in Rockport, Mass., on Oct. 14 and 16.
The Whale Center of New England, based on Harbor Loop in Gloucester, has responded to calls to pick up the bodies of harbor seals that have washed up in Massachusetts, and interim executive director Dale Brown said her organization has brought the seals’ bodies to the New England Aquarium to be necropsied, as were the New Hampshire seals.
NOAA officials had previously ruled out human involvement in the strandings, both direct involvement, including attacks on the animals, and indirect involvement, such as fishing entanglements.
NOAA officials said in a statement the deaths were more than three times the average number of strandings that typically occur this time of year.
Although tissues from five seals examined by a New England aquarium tested positive for the Influenza A virus, test results for six other viral pathogens and biotoxins were negative, the agency said.
“Even though preliminary results have been received, they are only indicative of those five cases, and additional evaluations are under way to determine whether the influenza virus has played a role in the overall mortalities,” the statement said.
In addition to the role played by the Whale Center of New England, the unexplained deaths triggered a response from NOAA’s national Marine Mammal Stranding Network, the New England Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Program and the University of New England’s Marine Animal Rescue Center.
Authorities are warning the public that the seals could pose a human health risk.
“We want to remind people to not get close to seals encountered along the shore, to keep their pets away and to report any sightings to us through our stranding hot line while we continue to assess whether there is any potential human health risk,” said Teri Rowles, who coordinated the National Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program.
The harbor seal population in the Northeast is considered healthy, so the spate of deaths doesn’t signal broad trouble. The last census, in 2001, showed 99,000 harbor seals, and a survey this year is expected to show the population has grown, said Mendy Garron, regional marine mammal stranding coordinator for the National Marine Fisheries Service.
The past few decades have seen some notable seal die-offs in the Northeast, including in a rash of influenza deaths around 1979 and 1980 that New England Aquarium spokesman Tony LaCasse previously said were linked to bird flu. Scientists theorized that the seals were exposed when they sunned themselves on rocks dotted with bird droppings, he said.
In 2006, a morbillivirus killed hundreds of local harbor and gray seals, Garron said. The virus killed 20,000 seals in the United Kingdom in the early 2000s, with harbor seals accounting for 44 percent of the deaths, she said.
