Something Happened Around 2012

From the weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal:
McGinty, J. C. (2019, October 19-20). The Young are Having Less Sex, More STDs. The Wall Street Journal, A2.

"young people, we're told, are having less sex than older generations did at the same age. But they're also contracting more sexually transmitted diseases than any other group, and the rates of infection are accelerating at an alarming pace."

...'Something changed starting around 2012,' said Gail Bolan, director of the CDC division of STD prevention. 'We're seen dramatic increases each year in both males and females'."

This reminds me of some other ecological changes that occurred in 2011-2014. Here is a summary I wrote:

In 2011 and unusual mortality events were reported for Alaskan walruses, seals,[i] and polar bears,[ii] all of which were found to be “suffering from hair loss, skin sores, and unusually lethargic behavior.”[iii]

No cause was ever identified.

Unusual mortality events for California sea lions were reported by the NOAA in 2013,[iv] escalating to catastrophic losses in 2015.[v] Dolphin populations in California also experienced significant mortality events in 2013 and were found to have significantly impaired immune systems.[vi]

Sardines in the Pacific Northwest experienced also experienced a significant reduction in numbers in 2013, with the November population estimate of 378,000 tons constituting a steep drop from the 1.5 million tons estimated in 2000. 378,000 tons represented the lowest reported in over ten years.[vii]

The King Salmon population in Alaska declined 73 percent from 2011 to 2012 (Jim Carlton, Wall Street Journal (August 4, 2012) p. A3). In 2014, starfish were afflicted with a devastating and inexplicable wasting disease up and down the coast of North America.[viii] An unusual mortality event was reported for Alaskan whales in 2015.[ix]

North American Pacific coast sea birds have also been impacted. Adverse mortality events have afflicted murres and shearwater. Autopsies indicated the shearwaters had a high parasite count and were starving.[x]Auklets living along entire north American pacific coast have also experienced a steep population declines that were described as “just massive, massive, unprecedented” by Julia Parish, a seabird ecologist at the University of Washington who oversees the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team.[xi]

Land animals in Alaska and California also experienced significant and inexplicable population declines. Western Arctic caribou experienced a decline of 27 percent between 2011 and 2013.[xii] Monarch butterfly populations that migrate to a specific area in Mexico experienced a record low in 2013, with their numbers contained by 2.9 acres in 2013, compared to 12 acres between 2003 and 2012.[xiii] In 2013 California race horses were afflicted with a mysterious affliction that caused them to drop dead suddenly.[xiv]  The moose population, already in decline prior to Fukushima, fell still further between 2010 and 2014 with one population in Minnesota cut in half between 2010 and 2014.[xvi]

Bees in California also experienced a significant population decline in 2013: “A mysterious malady that has been killing honeybees en masse for several years appears to have expanded drastically in the last year, commercial beekeepers say, wiping out 40 percent or even 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate many of the nation’s fruits and vegetables.”[xv]

For me, the greatest tragedy has been the rise in INEXPLICABLE and SEVERELY DEBILITATING conditions in young people (teens through mid-20s) with significant numbers of young people suffering inexplicable but terribly painful GI problems especially and also spike in cancers among people in their late 20s and 50s.

  1. You can blame rightwing fascism promoted by Bannon enforced by trump and modi for the CURRENT ESCALATION OF NUCLEAR WAR POSTURING BY Modi in India . Think of all the damage fuko and its acolytes have caused in murica and the world. All of these stupid crazy, evil nucleaoapes that believe in hormesis . They are so psychopathic psychotic and deluded, that they believe that somehow using any nuclear weapon is survivable, in a world  already flooded with the worst radionuclde poisons

    1. Women make up 80 percent of cancer patients aged 20-39 in Japan, study shows

      By denying and covering up Fukushima widespread radioactive contamination, the present Japanese government is putting the population at permanent risk, and those cancer patients number will be increasing, not talking of the other ailments.

      October 18, 2019
      Women account for around 80 percent of all cancer patients in Japan between the ages of 20 and 39, a study by two national medical centers shows.
      The study by the National Cancer Center Japan and the National Center for Child Health and Development attributed the result to an increase in breast and cervical cancer.
      “We especially want (women) to get properly checked for cervical cancer once they turn 20. We are seeking an effective support system for adolescents and young adults … based on age and gender,” the centers said in the report released Thursday.
      The study, the first of its kind, analyzed 62,000 cancer patients aged up to 39 who had contacted 844 medical institutions across Japan in 2016 and 2017.
      Children up to age 14 made up 4,500 of the 62,000 patients, with the majority of them boys. Half of the children had leukemia or brain tumors, and a small number were diagnosed with rare cancers.
      Of the 56,000 patients who were 20 or older, 44,000 — or 78.6 percent — were women.
      While cancer types varied depending on age and gender, an analysis of patients in the very early stage of their diseases showed that cervical cancer accounted for the most cases, followed by breast cancer, the centers said.

  2. My best friend from Japan was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2012 her daughtelr die this year from leukemia that was diagnosed in 2013 when she was 18. Nuclear has destroyed so many of my friends and family in merica, japan and the ukraine. it is so evil

  3. I am sorry for your friends and family Weez. It takes a toll. I do not care what anyone says. It takes a toll

  4. ty ! for caring to track the slow-motion impacts...

  5. Bill Clinton needs this information. I think it was Paula Jones that presented the information about the midget penis of Bill. Also a black prostitute in Little Rock remarked on his deficiency. I doubt if he comes to this blog so you should probably put this on twitter along with a plea for this material to reach our former President. This may be the source of his wandering as a woman like Hillary would want a real penis and not a dwarf in her bed!
