Story of the Bats and the Bees -- Radiation and Destruction of Chitin

This article is also going to be my "go to" link for Bee information that I am gathering and will implement 2 hives in April.

Hey are there any bee keeps on ENE, like to chat.
I have to explain the bats and the bees to my environment.

Not me, but in case you find others here (or have thoughts yourself, Stock):
Short half-life positively-charged alpha emitters love to stick to pollen, which a plant will negatively charge to stick to bees. Bees themselves positively charge themselves when flying.

Two of the fastest and most powerful natural sentinels for the most dangerous radioactive releases (anything containing much alpha) are pollen and leafy plants with sticky trichomes.
Hand-held counters are not terribly efficient at alpha counting and preparing the sample is critical.

We may have been able to see immediate and profound effects of Fuku by looking at those two natural sources.

If there are any bee keepers in the Northwest or Cali: does anyone have any references for unusual die-offs in the spring/early summer of 2011? Honey and comb would not have been tested properly or quickly enough to see the short-lived alpha, so I know tests showed nothing. The honey itself would not have been an issue by time it went to market. I'm interested in any anecdotal evidence from bee-keepers for unexplained colony collapse. Of course, if you miraculously happened to do detailed alpha surveys of pollen on your hives that spring, that would be most helpful too.

There is a question if you could even detect the amounts of alpha likely to collect on pollen/bees even in the most extreme circumstances. Enough to kill the bees, but not enough even for good equip. to detect
bat chitin crazy, bats rely on digesting the chitin in the insects they pound, say 600 to 1000 per day.

The gastrointestinal tract of animals is adapted to their primary source of food to optimize resource use and energy intake. Temperate bat species mainly feed on arthropods. These contain the energy-rich carbohydrate chitin, which is indigestible for the endogenous enzymes of a typical mammalian gastrointestinal tract. However, the gastrointestinal tract of bat species should be adapted to their diet and be able to digest chitin. We hypothesized that (i) European vespertilionid bat species have the digestive enzyme chitinase and that (ii) the chitinolytic activity is located in the intestine, as has been found for North American bat species. The gastrointestinal tracts of seven bat species (Pipistrellus pipistrellus, Plecotus auritus, Myotis bechsteinii, Myotis nattereri, Myotis daubentonii, Myotis myotis, and Nyctalus leisleri) were tested for chitinolytic activity by diffusion assay.

Gastrointestinal tracts of P. pipistrellus, P. auritus, M. nattereri, M. myotis, and N. leisleri were examined for acidic mammalian chitinase by western blot analysis. Tissue sections of the gastrointestinal tract of P. pipistrellus were immunohistochemically analyzed to locate the acidic mammalian chitinase. Chitinolytic activity was detected in the stomachs of all bat species. Western blot analysis confirmed the acidic mammalian chitinase in stomach samples.

 The story of continuining damage to the Pacific, well, continues

So let's see. Since 2011, we have had a continuous degradation of the Pacific west and north west ocean and even south pacific now.

We had reports of massive amounts of iodine in the kelp early on. We have the collapse of various feeder fish species and their fisheries. We have the collapse of krill. The collapse of many sea birds.
We have chronic wasting diseases of various otherwise hardy sea life all over.

Now there is starving and sick higher order sea life all over the place that is continuing to get worse.
The tidal pools on the west coast look completely sterilized. Even early on there were many reports from the arctic and Alaska of radiation sickness in mammals.

You are in denial, wake up. This is real and it isn't going away.

In a few years, there isn't going to be anything left to argue over because the few remaining unhealthy sea mammals kicking around will have perished.

It started with the plankton/phytoplankton super concentrating isotopes and it's been working it's way to the top ever since. We sterilized the Pacific, it's dying.

It's blatantly obvious.


  1. f troll ....
    There is a good list of articles just on the topic of "whales" when I do a search for them here.
    But I can't link to my list because the results list is in an inset.
    Can you do a story featuring all of your whale articles?
