so this additional batch of new arrivals might cause "after-shock" after a larger earthquake people were discussing recently?

Cause of death of dolphin here is yet unknown, but... One thing for sure, US navy admitted that they are resposible for killing many whales and dolphins.

Quote---------start-----------

By the Navy’s estimations, their live simulations could kill 186 whales and dolphins off of the east coast, and 155 near Hawaii and southern California. Serious injuries for mammals off the east coast could number upwards of 11,267 with 1.89 million minor problems.

Here's a better quote - from the source that your "green" website used and one that explains the "admission" more completely:

U.S. Navy training and testing could inadvertently kill hundreds of whales and dolphins and injure thousands over the next five years, mostly as a result of detonating explosives underwater, according to two environmental impact statements released by the military Friday.

Underwater explosions. Yeah that's going to mess-up whales, dolphins, fish, and invertebrates. The mammals are just part of the mix.

I don't think active sonar is the great evil the environmentalists try to make it out to be. I was a sonar technician in the navy back in the 70's and 80's. Dolphins invariably came TO the ship when we were actively pinging. Seems to me if the sonar was hurting them, they would have been moving AWAY from the source of pain.

Let me be clear, the amount of power we were putting into the water WAS potentially damaging. A diver in the water within 50 feet of the sonar dome when it transmitted could expect ruptured eardrums. For this reason testing the sonars in-port was prohibited if there was diving work to be performed in the vicinity. But a free-swimming dolphin is not going to get so close that it causes pain. At least I would HOPE they wouldn't.

Heaven is underwater now, is it?

I grew up on the beach. Things like this happen now and then. But it is rather said nonetheless.

One theory scientists were testing was that the creatures could have had a parasitic infection that disrupted their ability to navigate. Another was that the dolphins’ sonar had become ineffective in the sandy shoals.

Dead Dolphins In Fukushima Stranding Found With White Radiated Lungs. How's this for an update and has this been reported in the Japanese media yet?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Suggestions abounding on social media that the mass-beaching was a harbinger of a powerful earthquake were dismissed as “unscientific”.

And they are. Just goes to show you that memorizing what 'science says' is no substitute for learning how science works and how we learn about way the natural world operates. For too many, 'science' is indistinguishable from "the Bible," or the "Koran" or whatever. Just some authority.

Sad, really.

Dead Dolphins In Fukushima Stranding Found With White Radiated Lungs. How's this for an update and has this been reported in the Japanese media yet?

Both those articles were drawing conclusions on bad google translations of a Japanese article, that said nothing about radiated lungs. Why would they report something that isn't news and hasn't been concluded?
