Shocking video shows salmon almost boiled alive in heatwave
 

 

A heartbreaking video of fish scorched by lethal temperatures during the recent heat wave in the Pacific Northwest is yet another reminder of the devastating consequences of climate change.

“It’s heartbreaking to watch animals dying unnaturally,” Brett VandenHeuvel, the executive director of Columbia Riverkeeper, told the Guardian. “And worse, thinking about the cause of it. This is a human caused problem, and it really makes me think about the future.”

Adult salmon cannot migrate upstream when water temperatures rise above 68 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Columbia Riverkeeper, and temperatures reached 70 during the recent heat wave. Stuck in warm water and unable to spawn, the fish became covered in red lesions and white fungus due to heat and stress.

But temperatures have been rising for even longer, despite the protections given to the Columbia River Basin under the Clean Water Act.

“It’s really appalling that we have solutions to save salmon, but we’re not doing it,” said Don Sampson, a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation and an advisory board member for the Northwest Tribal Salmon Alliance, telling the Guardian that watching the video was akin to seeing his relatives die. “We don’t have the political will, our members of Congress in the north-west don’t have the political strength or will to stand up to protect salmon for future generations.”

Not far from the Columbia River, an estimated one billion marine animals died in the Salish Sea off the coast of Vancouver during a recent heatwave. The severe heatwave and drought overtaking parts of the U.S. west and nearby regions are continued symptoms of climate change, according to a new study. Research shows that animals are already dying due to the consequences of climate change on their habitats and lifestyles - and the situation is only projected to get worse. The West Coast is already preparing for a second heat wave even as many are still recovering from heat-related illnesses brought on by the first one.

“I see this as a deeply sad vision for our future. But I also see it as a call to action. There’s mitigation measures we can take to save the salmon, to cool our rivers,” VandenHeuvel told the Guardian. “And if this video doesn’t inspire some serious reflection, then I don’t know what will.”

The wildfires in the western US and Canada should be getting more coverage. Yesterday it was all hazy and smelled like smoke all the way here in Connecticut and Massachusetts

On another note, it is natural for the earth to heat up and cool down every so many thousand years or so. Were obviously in a warming up cycle that humans have been increasing the speed of going back to the industrial revolution

The saddest part is that if we continue with the pattern that we’re heading to, just like that salmon, we are certainly going to be next.

No we’re not.

This reality and earth is made for us. We are the only organisms on earth to manipulate the fabric of reality itself. So we’re instrumental and everything else is just to set the tone to this grandiose stage play.

Look up the double slit experiment, and then tell me I’m wrong.

No bro...this is not normal.... Certain parts of the earth is experiencing heat waves, fires,while other parts is getting hit with hailstorm.... Some parts are being flooded while other parts is having a drought.... All this simultaneously at the same time? We are approaching the end.... I expect more from you with a name like that
