Millions of dead anchovies float to surface in Redondo Beach

Cnn reports, "Officials say millions of the pungent, oily fish are covering the sea bottom in the harbor. They began rising to the surface Tuesday morning, the Daily Breeze in Torrance, outside Los Angeles, reported."

Just months after the initial New Years Black Bird deaths  and fish deaths, we see another case. NY times originally reported that a probable cause is pesticides, but officials would not release this information. For if they did, American food would be boycotted and we would lose money in our major market of mass produced, sprayed, poisonous "food," or so I wish. 

On my way to class I saw a dead bee on the sidewalk. I felt like taking a picture and blogging about it, and how we are killing them off with cell phone use. And then I sat down to open Cnn and saw these anchovies dead. 

Rachel Carson's Silent Spring may just be May 2011. First we see blackbirds down in Arkansas, and now we see millions of anchovies dead in California. What's next? Hummingbirds?
