NOT GOOD FOR THE SPORT OF FISHING



DAMN DANGEROUS NOTICES

 “ The  Most Dangerous Person In Our Lifetime To The Environment ”,  

A man fishing for ideas to cover his failures… the Supreme Ayatollah of ruination and destruction, tall tale teller, not coal tail  teller of all time… the man who would turn our parks and Eco-systems into coal mines and oil wells and pollute our rivers with coal tailings… 

POINT:  And he almost got away with some of it.  Too late, too little, severe damage has been done to our waterways which confounded by global warming and a pandemic is not a good scenario.

It has gotten into our rivers already, a man who does not care about anything other than himself.  Now he wants to turn the last frontiers into commercial usage.  

Stupid and Common Sense — He wanted the coal mines re-opened. Return  their  jobs with drilling, with no market for product, it’s all about money, the future, the planet,  the TRUTH IS OBVIOUS --

It was all about re-election and votes and the people who live there simply don’t count.  And we don’t need it either.   Coal is a dead issue.  And is bad for the environment and the future.  

 And This is for those frickin idiots who don’t believe Global Warming is real, because they were told that on FOX news, the true fake news scumbags who “ Opinion-ate” … thats a new word in news stemming from the adverb to  “ Verbally Master-Bait”.

Only the Chinese still rely on coal plants to keep the woks burning since most of that country,  in country is third world.  Since things they do with science tend blow up, dam's break, floods, pollution and create death like from COVID.  we should keep an eye on them.

Things they did like not being honest about COVID  did result in the loss of one million Americans —  


FAILINGS AND TAILINGS 

  • Poison Our Planet Point:  Tailings are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction (gangue) for example of a coal ore. Tailings are distinct from overburden, which is the waste rock or other material that overlies an ore or mineral body and is displaced during mining without being processed.

  • The extraction of minerals from ore can be done two ways: placer mining, which uses water and gravity to concentrate the valuable minerals, or hard rock mining, which pulverizes the rock containing the ore and then relies on chemical reactions to concentrate the sought-after material. In the latter, the extraction of minerals from ore requires comminution, i.e., grinding the ore into fine particles to facilitate extraction of the target element(s). 

  • Because of this comminution, tailings consist of a slurry of fine particles, ranging from the size of a grain of sand to a few micrometers  Mine tailings are usually produced from the mill in slurry form, which is a mixture of fine mineral particles and water.  And get stored in water by dams in ponds,  and can be dangerous sources of toxic chemicals, such as heavy metals, sulfides and radioactive content. These ponds are also vulnerable to major breaches or leaks from the dams, causing environmental disasters.  

  • Tailing violations in piles and ponds often are under regulatory scrutiny. There are a wide range of methods for recovering economic value, containing or otherwise mitigating the impacts of tailings.
    However, internationally, these practices are poor, sometimes violating human rights, and the first UN-level standard for tailing management was established to mitigate these risks in 2020.  

  • Coal mining is a dirty messy dangerous  business. In parts of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Virginia, mining companies often get at underground coal seams by blowing up the tops of mountains — a process known as mountaintop removal mining.  Once that’s done, they’ll dump the debris into the valleys below, which can contaminate streams and waterways with toxic heavy metals. 

  • Appalachian Voices, an environmental group, estimates that coal companies have buried over 2,000 miles of streams in the region through mountaintop removal mining since the 1990s. And there’s growing evidence that when mining debris and waste gets into water supplies, the toxic metals can have dire health impacts for the people, the fish and other small vertebrates and mostly rural communities living nearby.  When you see Trout with three eyes and ears you’ll know what we mean.

  • Coal refuse is heaped in slag heaps because high-quality coal will be degraded if mixed with metallic minerals
    and a series of incombustible inorganic impurities found in the tailings.   


SUMMATION


The Idiot In The WhiteHouse Was Loved By Ignorants Who Believed Him   

  • Mostly in rural communities and Evangelicals?  Those were voters who believed that T-RUMP alone could bring back coal.    He repaid them by killing the bills that prevented coal tailings and poisoned their land.

  • The naive, dumber, under-educated never got their jobs back, never took advantage of the free schooling and retraining to newer jobs offered by President Barack Obama and finally the last user of coal in the world East Germany is switching to natural gas from Russia.  If that happens after Ukraine — 

  • Coal is basically dead and with global warming many people are dead. Only the Chinese with the worst atmosphere on the planet need coal.  And Australia does something to it’s process that captures the bad stuff.  So they say, but converting in the next few years.

  • Half the protections put in place and the committees for good were removed by T-RUMP is why we had an idiot in the WhiteHouse.  Remember He told us drinking bleach for COVID,  Hydroxychloroquine, his cure killed 143 retired veterans in a nursing home, He removed half the safeguards from the CDC, and got them to leave the WhiteHouse.  Now we have lost 1,000,000 Americans so far to his stupidity.  

  • Reminder, only a fellow idiot votes for an idiot. Look in the mirror pull out your GOP voter card and congratulate the idiot you see.  If you agree with any of T-RUMPS their non-policies and obstruction you are no better than them.  


🐡 BLOWFISH AND PUFFER FISH

Man Critically Ill In Hong Kong After Eating Puffer Fish  — Normally this would be on my Food Website,  and this may be halfway around the world , but we have an abundance of Sushi/Sashimi shops in Florida and they might offer puffers, AKA  blowfish on the menu.  After this hit the airwaves it’s kinda an underground thing.

  • Also it is very commonly caught here in Florida.   As a food critic writer and food investigator, many Far East restaurants do not follow many of the rules and especially Chinese Buffets.  ( I write a food column, and all I ever hear when they get inspected is  “ Too Many Rules” )  — I do not eat at Chinese buffets — I have been on too many inspections and don’t care for their sanitary conditions, false substitutes,  nor attitudes.

  • Most freshwater fish caught in Florida can be eaten without harm. Bream (such as bluegill, redear sunfish, redbreast sunfish or spotted sunfish) and marine fish such as mullet, snappers, pompano, flounder and dolphin are generally low in mercury. Review the list of water bodies in our advisory brochure to learn which fish can be consumed regularly and which should be avoided.

  • Avoid Puffer or Suffer —  Do not eat puffer fish caught in the Indian River Lagoon and from water in Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties. These include the southern puffer, northern puffer, marbled puffer, bandtail puffer, checkered puffer, and least puffer.

  • Eating puffer fish (also called blowfish) can cause saxitoxin poisoning which can lead to neurological symptoms such as tingling, burning, numbness, drowsiness, incoherent speech, and difficulty breathing.   In severe cases, the poisoning can cause death. Cooking or cleaning the fish will not destroy the toxin. This toxin also has no taste, color, or smell. If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned, contact your physician or visit the emergency room immediately.

  • SIDEBAR —  No blowfish were found, Floridian seafood lovers are aware of blowfish.  But some sashimi or sushi bars might offer it as a special deal  Don’t — some of them offering blowfish which they relate to expensive and there are idiots stupid enough to try it. 
  • Our buffets don’t exactly do things the Western ways —  2016 Four of the four major Chinese buffets restaurants got closed, and fined for Human Trafficking of their staff —  One fellow got three years — His wife was allowed to operate because she had three children to bring up.  She was the fourth of four — 


🐡 PUFFER FISH ALLOVER THE WORLD

  • A man is in a critical condition in a hospital in Hong Kong after consuming puffer fish he caught and suffering suspected tetrodotoxin poisoning.  We call the false buffets here in the states “ Le Junk Food” and you can read my food section about buffets and you might not return.

  • The 65-year-old man developed facial numbness, general weakness and respiratory failure about two hours after eating cooked puffer fish he caught in local waters for lunch at home earlier this week.  He should have gone to McDonalds… we can treat McDonalds food poisoning.  plenty of it. 

  • He went to the accident and emergency department of Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH) on the same day as he ate the fish and was then admitted to the intensive care unit of PWH for further management.  He still has symptoms of paralysis almost six months later.  And his condition is not curable.

  • Public Warning  —  The Department of Health conferring with the Chinese and is investigating the suspected poisoning case and reminds the public not to consume puffer fish, also known as globefish, fugu, or blowfish.   Puffer fish may contain tetrodotoxin.   It is mainly found in the eggs, liver and skin. This fish must be cleaned and prepared properly so that organs containing toxins are removed and do not cross-contaminate the edible flesh of the fish.  It and many members of its specie are world wide.



DEATH BY FISH


  • A CHP spokesman said consumption of puffer fish is the main cause of food poisoning from tetrodotoxin, a potent water-soluble neurotoxin that can affect the central nervous system.  A predator that manages to snag a puffer fish before it inflates won’t feel lucky for long. Almost all puffer fish contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them foul tasting and often lethal. 

  • To humans, tetrodotoxin is deadly, up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide. There is enough toxin in one puffer fish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote. 

  • Sharks are the only species immune to the puffer fish’s toxin. They can eat puffer fish without any negative consequences.  We interviewed one shark who thought they tasted like chicken.😁

  • “Being heat-stable, the toxin does not decompose upon cooking, boiling, drying or freezing. Tetrodotoxin intoxication can cause problems in respiration or circulation and is potentially fatal. There is no known antidote or antitoxin. 

  • Members of the public are advised to avoid purchasing and preparing puffer fish or unknown fish for consumption to prevent tetrodotoxin-related food poisoning,” he said.

  • It has also been isolated from other species including goby, shellfish, California newt, parrotfish, blue-ringed octopus, starfish, angelfish, and xanthid crabs. 

  • The Blue Ringed Octopus of Australia bite is one of the most dangerous in the world and no known antidote.  No known survivors — More dangerous than a King Cobra or Black Mamba

  • Patients with tetrodotoxin poisoning usually develop symptoms within 30 minutes to six hours of ingestion. These may include nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting, abdominal discomfort, numbness in the face, muscle weakness and slurred speech and cardiovascular effects including hypotension, bradycardia and arrhythmia. 

  • If the victim survives the first 24 hours, they are not good odds but some might get lucky, but it’s a very low number, they might recover as toxin can be expelled from the body through urination.   Drink a lot of purified water.  Gallons if need be — on the way to a hospital, wait too long and you will be on the way to a morgue.  They probably will infuse you with an infusion, anti-inflametories, a water pill and steroids —  keep drinking but get to a hospital ASAP for treatment if it’s not too late —
