Freshwater mussel die off.

Blimey, this is worrying. I wonder also how the common earthworm is faring, without it we are snookered. Likewise plankton and remember marine diatoms are utterly essential. I hate to be a doomster but when things ‘get into gear’ re species loss it will all happen frighteningly fast ie a few years. Likewise in my opinion ice loss is being dreadfully under forecast, it seems to my mind laughable when we hear on serious news programmes “Greenland ice could all be gone by the end of the century”, even as a kid I can tell you ice goes a lot quicker than thought credible. More like ten years than eighty, just my guess that’s all.

I wonder if this freshwater mussel die-off is tied into aluminium levels from chemtrail, I also wonder at the diatom and algal populations in the river under question, the Clinch River. These last few days theres been plenty to see on NASA Worldview; but first, mussel die off links ….

Aluminium and earthworms …

I’ve done lots with the microscope over the years and need help in finding how increased aluminium levels are affecting earthworms. In turn this draws in the problems all insects and invertebrates and microscopic life in soil, everything. But I cannot find anything up to date. Its further compounded that chemtrails and  aluminium accumulation are still regarded as a highly subjective even suspect area of enquiry. ….. talk about fiddling whilst Rome burns!

If worms and microscopic soil life, molds, bacteria, diatoms, algae etc are much reduced then conventional agriculture is highly compromised. Earth, the soil mixture that allows us to raise plants and crops, herbs etc is a wonderful thing, even the smell of it has a specific reason and name.  I wonder how much if at all the average school pupil gets to hear of this, not as some droning ‘it has to be done’ part of a curricula but as something to be excited about, to wish to know more?

To start the ball rolling, I intend to add to this search for the compromise on soil life re inc aluminium levels and hope others can contribute  …..

let me paste his letter here, I quote…

Greeting to all from Francis:

We got sweep nets to check out local insects, as we have not been seeing the usual. For the last 3 years terrestrial bugs have been about 20% of normal populations. This year the populations appear to be about 10% of normal. The most populous are the true bugs and aphids, suckers, while the chewers are nearly absent except for a very few grasshoppers of the flying locust type.

The aquatics have been about 10% of normal, except in springwater areas, for 5 years. The types that live in mud are particularly absent. The trout are in poor condition, and the size of wild fish has generally declined in local streams. I wll go fishing as usual, but when I catch something, it usually has only a few terrestrial like ants in the stomach, and is usually a hatchery fish.

I’m just reporting what my sampling has found. I very much hope this is just a long-term anomaly, but I am beginning to suspect it is not because the effects are so widespread. Point pollution affects only one stream. Air pollution affects them all, and I suspect its the Welsbach elements.

O Lord, may I be all wrong about this. BF”

Thats a start, this post re aluminium and earthworms is a work in progress.
