Great contribution. thank you for your links! I will proide some thoughts and extra-information to some of the information you deliver - and look at it in a new light;
A: NBC REPORT - OVERALL
as far as the nbc-news-report is concerned: this one goes well along with all of the other reports: No mass death shown at all. no wide angles - no proof - no sources - no places - minimum number of dead animals, filmed individually. no proof - no-event, worthless COVERAGE OF ALL 2011 EVENTS
B: PRIVATE CITIZEN DIE-OFFUPLOAD
the privately filmed video is great material!! This is the first privately filmed video I ever saw, Therefore: This is also the BEST video I ever saw! This one might indeed be related to the mass-death-event-reports of January 2011! But: even though it might be related to one of those 30 mass-death-event-reports of January 2011, only 30 birds can be prooven to have died in the incident, and the video does not have any time, and it does not inform about the place where the event took place, nor is there any person filmed or contact-information provided. Though unlikely, It might have also been filmed in India in the year 2004. At least, regretfully, there is noting much to investigate further into, and nothing that would documentate a real mass-death either. PS.: You wrote:
"camera phone upload of a localalized die-off in the midwest". I wonder how you knew that this event took place in the midwest. How do you know it was in the midwest? The source does not say so. did you guess where the event took place? In case you know more than shown in the video, please let me know. I would really like to know more!
the video you linked to about dead fish in Rio de Janiero does NOT mention how many fish are killed, and
it is NOT from Feb. 2010 as you mentioned it to be. Just take a look at when the oldest Comment is from and you will easily find out that it is now 11 Month old already! Hence, the incident mut be at least 11 Month old today, or, even older. It does NOT belong to those events that took place in January 2011. That is why the documentation is good on this one. Documentation is only bad concerning all of those events that took place in January 2011. That is a prooven fact. BESIDES: No mass death is shown at all. no wide angles - no proof - no sources - no places - the number of fish involved is NOT mentioned in the video - filmed animals might be an estimated of 8.000 small fishes, I guess. But Fox News reports about fifty Tons of dead fish concerning the same incidet: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/02/28/fifty-tons-dead-fish-wash-ashore-rio-lagoon/ now: where is the footage for that!? Conclusion: Again: no mass death shown! No material - and: NOT 2011 - But even if "only" 8000" have died, those fish can at least be seen! The footage is much much better than for any of the 2011 incidents! AND: This video reveales how many people are need to "clean the mess up" and carry the dead animals away. Such an event causes a lot of work for a lot of men! Pictures about the cleaning-up-Teams are entirely missing for all the 2011 events (exept birds in auckland) , therefore I still group all of the 2011-events as the socalled: "non-events of 2011"
D : DELAWARE BAY
great material - NOT 2011- not one of those "non-events". this Video is online since 12. August 2010 - relatively good documetation - Always only One species per event, so to say, weired. Odd. comparably good documentation!
in maryland two million fish are saied to have died! Who has counted two million fish? where are the two million fish now? Who cleaned them away from the beach in maryland? Why is this still the only video Material out there about maryland? best material though! It does show less than one percent of the actual number of dead fish reported for maryland. But at least it finally is one real video. Touche! And it is the very only video available. Still: it has the right time - and the right place, and shows one percent of the maryland-catastrophe, finally on tape !
