This is my first post and been reading the website for quite some time. and I thought it was time to add my own post.

Here it goes…

So about this bird deaths I have some ideas.

John P. Wheeler III found dead, Wheeler’s military career included writing one of the most important manuals on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons. works(ed) Miltre for which develops chemical drones for war. Supposedly they test out of Little Rock Air Base.

Pine Bluff Arsenal – biological chemical storage site in AR. Pine Bluff Arsenal

Facts about Pine Bluff:
– 1hr north of Beebe where the birds died.
– Home to one of the World’s most specialized munitions and chemical-biological defense products and services
– Reported to store estimated 63,000 metric tonnes of the poisonous gas Phosgene that is described as one of the most feared chemical weapons ever used due to its ability to literally cause the lungs and respiratory
system to explode. Acquired from 2003 – 2008 (more on this later)

Phosgene Facts from CDC website:
– Was used extensively during World War I as a choking (could have the birds choked to death?)
– Heart failure within 48hrs
– May appear colorless or as a white to pale yellow cloud. At low concentrations, it has a pleasant odor of newly mown hay or green corn, but its odor may not be noticed by all people exposed. At high concentrations, the
odor may be strong and unpleasant.

Smell? Ok had an idea..google “Arkansas funny smell”
Results interesting, Second result citydata.com people in AR years 2006-2008 complain of funny smells. Also searched some locations of where the people said they lived, all close (4hrs or less) to Pine Bluff. thoughts?
Reference: citydata

Now onto the fish deaths:

Earth quakes. searching Pine Bluff Disposal, found this Article

500 tremors in area since Sept 20 CNN Article

Searched “Pine Bluff Arsenal Underground Disposal” They have permission to do underground injections. which gets into the soil, and into the streams death of fishes too in AR.

Just found this article: Article
Read some of the comments and lady said that Guy, AR is nearby and had some recent tremors.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • More than 500 earthquakes have been recorded in Arkansas in the past few weeks
  • Geologists want to investigate salt water disposal wells related to natural gas drilling
  • “In the beginning … it was neat. … But now we’re wanting it to go away”

Guy, Arkansas (CNN) — Things are still shaking in Arkansas.

More than 500 measurable earthquakes have been reported in central Arkansas since September 20, ranging in magnitude from a barely noticeable 1.8 to a very noticeable 4.0 (recorded on October 11), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Geologists can’t say whether they’ll stop anytime soon.

Steve Wilson is looking forward to the quakes going away, he said.

“In the beginning, it was fun, it was neat, it was a cool thing to experience. But now we’re wanting it to go away,” said Wilson, assistant superintendent at Woolly Hallow State Park. “We’ve had all the fun we want.”

Although drilling for natural gas has been ruled out as a cause for the quakes, experts want to continue looking at salt water disposal wells, said Scott Ausbrooks, geohazards supervisor for the Geological Survey. Disposal wells occur when drilling waster is injected back into the earth after drilling.

Earlier this month, the Arkansas Oil and Gas commission issued an emergency moratorium on permits for new disposal wells. The commission will ask for a six-month extension for the moratorium at a January regulatory meeting.

The state also will soon become one of a few to require companies to disclose the chemicals used in fracking fluid, the water-and-chemical solution used in high-pressure drilling operations, said Shane Khoury, deputy director and general counsel for the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission.

“I think everyone recognizes that there is an increased number of seismic events occurring in and around this area. If you look at the maps, at least circumstantially, there appears to be evidence that they may be related to disposal operations,” said Khoury. “But we also know that this is an area that is historically active.”

Meanwhile, Sam Higdon, the mayor of Guy, says the quakes’ novelty is worn out.

“I think everyone just kind of figures maybe it’ll just go away,” he said. “And that’s what we’re all hoping.”
