Florida Times Union reports that over the past two months, hundreds of Eastern brown pelicans have washed ashore along Florida’s northeast coast. The North Carolina University (Wilmington) Seahawk newspaper reports that an “unprecedented” number has washed ashore in North Carolina.
Without providing photos, Seahawk claims all the birds died from being hacked to death, then speculated it was done by commercial fishing crews. In Florida, however, “Cindy Mosling, co-founder of the Bird Emergency Aid and Kare Sanctuary on Big Talbot Island, thinks chemicals in the water could be the culprit.”
Corexit breaks down oil, and the dead pelicans have lost all their naturally produced oil that is used to stay dry. The birds are freezing to death. A Jacksonville TV station has posted a video explaining this.
BP’s drilling explosion in the Gulf of Mexico last April released up to 350 million gallons of oil, and then the eco-terrorists dumped over two million gallons (if not tens of millions more) of Corexit into the Gulf, sickening humans and causing an extinction level event that is ongoing.
Fuck you very much, BP, Obama, NOAA and EPA. Nothing like killing the planet for your dead fuel profits.
