Rivers and lakes mysteriously disappearing increase around the world

By Strange Sounds –

Within the last 3 months or so, newspapers have started reporting increasingly about rivers and lakes that mysteriously and suddenly disappear around the world.

Here a compilation of the most baffling incidents.

Let’s start this compilation with the Atoyac River, which disappeared overnight drained by a giant 30 meters by 20 meters fissure in the riverbed. The large sink hole cut the water supply to more than 10,000 families for a few days.

One month later, in April 2016, two other rivers flowing through the exact same mountainous region of the eastern state of Veracruz, Mexico also began to dry up due to the formation of sinkholes.

The flow of the Tliapa and Tlacuapa rivers has been almost shut down due to two large holes in a cascade.

End of March 2016, another giant crater almost drained out a pond and devoured up to 25 tons of fish all of a sudden in China.

Now, closer to us in May 2016, Lake Riesco in Chilean Patagonia has almost dried out within two or three days, transforming this idyllic place into a rock-and-sand landscape. People are still waiting for an official answer to this mystery… Was another sinkhole or a fault line at the origin of the disappearance of this water reservoir?

Mid June 2016, official sources report an unprecedent water crisis in the same region of Chile with large lakes and rivers drying up and thus threatening communities and animals living around.

Only during last week, parts of the popular Ogun river in Nigeria – June 17, 2016 – and a Lake Pesch?ra – June 19, 2016 – disappeared overnight drained out by deep holes in the ground. Moreover, most of Lake Alligator in Florida vanished though giant holes on June 9, 2016.

Lake Peschera was vanished through a deep sinkhole in June 2016.

And what about the Kalamba Lake in Kolhapur which has almost dried up completely for the first time in its 135-year-old existence? From an original size of 63.13 hectares, it is now only 2-3 hectares wide.

And what about the mysterious disappearance of parts of th Ogun River in Nigeria?

And what about Lake Poopo, the second largest lake of Bolivia, which has almost completely disappeared.

It should also be notified that Lake Waiau, Hawaii’s only alpine lake is also mysterious disappearing.

Is really the extreme El Nino 2015 responsible for all these sinkholes and diying lakes and rivers. Is something else also playing a role? I don’t know exactly but something is really going crazy. And mother Earth doesn’t like it at all.

If water equals life..then?

There’s more water on Jupiter’s moon Europa than there is on Earth

By Robert T. Gonzalez

Remember that image from a few weeks back that showed Earth with all its water gathered up in a sphere beside it? Well here’s that image again, only this time, it also features Jupiter’s moon Europa, along with all of its water. Notice anything interesting?

Based on data acquired by NASA’s Galileo satellite, astronomers think the global oceans sloshing around beneath Europa’s icy exterior are likely 2—3 times more voluminous than the oceans here on Earth. Not 2—3 times more proportionally, 2—3 times more in total volume.

Yeah. That “little” moon is packing quite the supply of H2O — and with it, scientists think, a significant chance of harboring life.

Looking at this image, I can’t help but think back on what Michael Shara, curator in the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History, had to say when we spoke with him about Europa last November:

There’s more water on Jupiter’s moon Europa than there is on Earth

If we can figure out a way of putting a probe through [Europa’s] ice — and the ice may be hundreds of yards thick, it could be very difficult to do this — but if we could put a probe down that could melt its way through the ice, and then send out little submarines, who knows what we could find down there. It would be fascinating to go look. I think we have no choice but to go look. We must do it.

Emphasis mine. Because hell yes, let’s do it.

Where has all the water gone? Long time, passing.

Lake loses 300 gallons per second from mystery crack

By NICK COLTRAIN The Times-News

Lake loses 300 gallons per second from mystery crack In this Monday, Aug. 2, 2011 photo, Mike Trabert and his son, Patrick Trabert, dive into lower Blue Lakes in Twin Falls, Idaho. In an effort to track where water is draining from Blue Lakes, the two placed dye into a crack in the lake bottom that has allowed large amounts of water to drain out of the city of Twin Falls’ water storage into the aquifer below.(AP Photo/Times-News, Ashley Smith)

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — About 30 feet below the pristine lower Blue Lakes water, where he should still be somewhat visible from the surface, Patrick Trabert couldn’t see a foot in front of him.

Trabert, wearing diving gear, was squeezing two bottles of red water dye into a natural, oval-shaped hole about the size of a Mini Cooper.

That hole is sucking down 40 cubic feet of water — almost 300 gallons — per second, enough to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool every 36 minutes.

The city of Twin Falls would like to cut that flow, but others may rely on that water for their own use.

Trabert, diving with his father, city staff engineer Mike Trabert, is working with Brockway Engineering to see how that hole and other cracks in the lake affect water levels — and to see if they can be restricted to keep Twin Falls in compliance with legal agreements without hurting downriver water rights holders.

It all goes back to the thirst of thousands of Twin Falls residents and lawns above the canyon. When the city started pumping water at the Blue Lakes site in the mid-1990s, it pledged to not dramatically impact the water level in the lake owned by the Blue Lakes Country Club.

“When we started pumping, unknown to everyone, we dropped the lake level way down and caused a bit of excitement at the country club,”
Mike Trabert said. He added later: “We’re just trying to hold to what we said we’re going to do.”

Hence the six pounds of red dye dumped by the Traberts last week. They wanted to confirm the results of a study done in the ’90s to track where the water goes when it is sucked out of the lake. They planned to conduct a similar experiment on a recently discovered crack that is also draining the lake.

What is interesting is this phenomenon is happening all over the world. In fact, Scientists puzzled by giant whirlpools that have appeared in the Atlantic Ocean!

Though the crack is a mystery, the hole is believed to drain into Alpheus Creek, which feeds a trout farm further on. That leads to the city’s second concern — plugging the hole would help make up for Twin Falls’ pumping, but if that act infringes on the trout farm’s water right it could lead to even greater issues.

The Traberts say the pull of the hole starts at a certain threshold: they once watched a crawdad disappear when it moved just a little too close. When some of the dye floated to the surface and obscured the younger Trabert’s vision, it floated over the hole and disappeared in mere moments.

“It was pretty ominous,”
a mostly submerged Patrick Trabert yelled to project supervisor Charles E. Brockway, of Brockway Engineers, who watched the work from shore.

Brockway posted dye monitors at every place the lake might drain: the two springs that feed into Alpheus Creek and the creek-fed canal that flows to the trout farm. They also posted dye-absorbing packets in the Snake River. Every bit of information will help in the search for a long-term fix.

Water supply is important to the city and the lake is important to the country club and we just want to preserve the aesthetics of it,” Brockway said.

Radiation detected in Massachusetts rainwater as Fukushima crisis worsens

Radiation detected in Massachusetts rainwater as Fukushima crisis worsens

Mike Adams
NaturalNews
March 28, 2011

The Fukushima crisis continues to worsen by the day, with nuclear experts around the world finally realizing and admitting we’ve all been lied to. “I think maybe the situation is much more serious than we were led to believe,” said Najmedin Meshkati of the University of Southern California, in a Reuters report (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011…). That same article revealed that recent radiation readings at Fukushima show “contamination 100,000 times normal in water at reactor No. 2 and 1,850 times normal in the nearby sea.”

Massachusetts rainwater has also been found to be contaminated with low levels of radiation from Fukushima, indicating just how widespread the radioactive fallout has become. It’s not just the West Coast of North America that’s vulnerable, in other words: even the East Coast could receive dangerous levels of fallout if Fukushima suffers a larger release of radioactive material into the air.

Rolling blackouts are now continuing throughout Japan due to the drop in power production from Fukushima diminishing Japan’s electricity generating capacity (http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/20…). The only reason Japan isn’t experiencing widespread power blackouts right now is because so many factories were damaged or swept away from the tsunami itself. Once a serious rebuilding effort gets underway, Japan is going to find itself critically short of electrical power.

The radiation leaking from Reactor No. 2 is now measured at 1,000 millisieverts an hour — more than enough to cause someone’s hair to fall out from a single exposure event. Radiation sickness can begin at just 100 millisieverts. The extremely high levels of radiation are, in fact, making it nearly impossible for workers to continue working at the reactor. “You’d have a lot of difficulty putting anyone in there,” said Richard Wakeford, a radiation epidemiology expert at the Dalton Nuclear Institute in Manchester. “They’re finding quite high levels of radiation fields, which is impeding their progress dealing with the situation.” (http://www.businessweek.com/news/20…)

Taiwan looking to ditch nuclear power?

The worsening Fukushima situation is also starting to spook nearby nations such as Taiwan, which also depends on nuclear power. The DPP opposition party there announced today that it wanted to see nuclear power phased out by 2025. Taiwan is a relatively small island nation, and a Fukushima-like catastrophe would leave most of the island residents with nowhere to go. And like Japan, Taiwan is also vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis (as well as hurricanes).

In Germany, massive demonstrations (200,000 people in four large cities) have brought the nuclear safety issue to the forefront, contributing heavily to the defeat of Merkel and the rise to power of the Green Party in southwestern Germany (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/28/w…). Germans tend to have very strong opposition to nuclear power, in much the same way that most Europeans despise genetically modified foods.

The nuclear power industry turns out to be just as corrupt as Big Pharma

The truth is that many nations are rethinking nuclear power right now, thanks to the corruption, cover-ups and outright deceptions that we’re now finding out were behind the Fukushima power plant catastrophe. The nuclear industry, it turns out, is one big profit incest fest where the regulators are deeply in bed with the very industry they’re supposed to regulate (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100…).

Then again, what rich, powerful industry isn’t in bed with its regulators? It’s true with Big Pharma and the FDA just as much as it is with the nuclear power industry and its corrupt regulators. Every government-run regulator eventually becomes a marketing extension of the industry it was supposed to regulate.

That’s why Big Government never really works: Most of the regulators who are supposed to protect the people inevitably end up operating as industry whores. This entire Fukushima incident is a direct result of that deep-rooted corruption coming back to haunt humanity.

The Fukushima situation is nowhere near over. Now regulators are saying this might take not just weeks or months to sort out, but even years to fully rectify.

The half life of plutonium, it turns out, is a whole lot longer than the entire history of human civilization (24,000 years) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium). We would be wise to remember what we’re playing with when we attempt to harness the power of fission.
