“I have taken to living by my wits.”
Sherlock Holmes, from “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1892
It’s March, 2018, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve appended numerous recent news stories below to support it.
The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and=coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is “remarkable.”
That’s why one of the stories I’ve appended below says “The world’s most endangered sea turtle is making a remarkable comeback on Padre Island, along the Texas Gulf Coast.”
The headline uses the meme to talk about the subject as generally as possible. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.
The article contains numbers on the Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, but, as part of the standard practice within the global news blackout surrounding this subject, they carefully withheld the percentage increases between them, because providing them would be much more impactful, and go badly off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all. So I had to do the math. The new Texas nest record is 68% above the old, and the new Padre Island nest record is 87% above the old. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins.
The old records were set in 2012, the year that the great positive changes we’re currently witnessing got underway.
“Record” means “most, ever, in history.”
We’re into our seventh year since everything changed. I’ve been documenting it without cease in this thread for going on four years.
Couple of key things to keep in mind:
Propaganda has a lifespan.
When the school of fish, the flock of birds turns, they do so apparently as one.
December 7, 2015 – Arizona – Endangered fish reappear in the Santa Cruz River
Endangered Gila topminnows have once again been found in the Santa Cruz River of Southern Arizona after a 10-year absence, and scientists say that improved water quality in the river might have led to the reappearance of the fish there.
(Did, or did improved water quality not lead to the reappearance of the topminnows? As part of the standard protocol utilized within the global news blackout on this subject, the general term “endangered fish” is used in the headline, as a hedge against the use of the fish’s specific name, the Gila Topmeadow. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. – ed)
January 10, 2017 – ‘Extinct’ furry predator making a comeback in Pennsylvania
Thanks to a lengthy repopulation effort, a member of the weasel family is firmly rebounding in forests across Pennsylvania. Known as the fisher, the dark brown and sometimes brindled creature has seen its numbers steadily climb in capture reports tracked by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
(As part of the standard protocol within the global news blackout on this subject, any specific numbers are omitted, replaced, rather, by general terms like “has seen its numbers steadily climb.” The headline uses the general phrase, ‘Extinct’ furry predator’, to avoid using its specific name, the fisher. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. – ed)

The griffon vulture was reduced to isolated strongholds in Sicily and Sardinia but there are now an estimated 135 breeding pairs across the country, from the Alps in the north to the Apennine mountains, which run the length of the country.
The lammergeier, renowned for dropping bones onto rocks in order to crack them open to reach the nutritious marrow inside, was declared extinct in 1912 but in the last decade has returned, with its population now estimated to be 230 individuals.
May 9, 2017 – Western snowy plovers, endangered beach birds, make a comeback
Since 1949, the western snowy plover’s nests have been missing from Los Angeles beaches — but this week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it discovered four of the endangered birds’ nests during recent beach monitoring sessions, according to the agency. Of the four nests, two remain viable.
The nests were found in late April and early May. They were caged off to protect the birds’ brown speckled eggs, the agency said in a statement.
On April 18, the first nest was found on Santa Monica State Beach by members of the L.A. Audubon Society and the Bay Foundation, followed by the discovery of a nest on Dockweiler State Beach on April 27. Two more nests were discovered at Malibu Lagoon State Beach on April 28 and May 4, according to the agency.

The fish shown above was seen in the Hudson River near 96th Street on Tuesday morning. It appears to be a sturgeon, a fish that’s been making a comeback in the river in recent years and is considered an iconic symbol of the Hudson River.
(Can you see how they used the general – and disturbing – generality, “Massive dead fish”, has a hedge, to avoid saying the sturgeon’s specific name? As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. They hedge again by saying the sturgeon is considered an iconic symbol of the Hudson river. – ed)
June 14, 2017 – ‘22 endangered fish species reappear’
Some 22 species of endangered and rare fish reappeared due to the creation of 386 sanctuaries in rivers and free water bodies across the country over the last three years, Fisheries and Livestock Minister Sayedul Haque said in parliament on Tuesday.
(They claim they created the sanctuaries, and the creatures returned, when the fact is the creatures returned about five years ago, and the folks in charge quick created the sanctuaries about three years ago to take credit for it happening. You can see in the numerous accounts within this article that, in some cases, there was sanctuary creation, and in others, there was no sanctuary creation. – ed)
July 16, 2017 – Coral fish reappear in Hong Kong waters, but green turtles vanish
Green groups find 14 rare species that have not been seen for years and warn about increasing numbers of voracious groupers potentially threatening local life
Fourteen rare species of coral fish commonly thought to have disappeared from Hong Kong waters have been rediscovered in the past three years, according to green groups.
But the groups also expressed concern that fewer green turtles were visiting local waters, while more Sabah giant groupers, which environmentalists believe pose a threat to local coral species, were present.
One of the most important among the 14 rediscovered species was the blackspot tuskfish, which had not been seen for almost two decades, Eco-Education director Ken Ching See-ho said. The island of Tsing Yi is named after the fish’s name in Cantonese.
Ching said the return of the species was important to the local ecosystem because it feeds on sea urchins. He said the growing population of sea urchins in the waters off Tung Ping Chau in the northeastern New Territories and Sham Wan on Lamma had affected the local seagrass bed and coral reefs.
September 19, 2017 – The world’s most endangered sea turtle is making a remarkable comeback on Padre Island, along the Texas Gulf Coast.
“It was a fabulous year,” said Donna Shaver, National Park Service Division Chief of Sea Turtle Science and Recovery at Padre Island National Seashore.
Since April, beach patrols have discovered a record 353 Kemp’s ridley sea turtle nests in Texas, including 219 at Padre Island National Seashore.
“I say we didn’t just break the record, we smashed the records,” said Shaver.
The previous record was set in 2012, when there were 209 nests found in Texas, including 117 at Padre Island National Seashore.
(I give her credit for the dramatic use of “smashed“, but it’s general. And you may recall that generality is a hallmark of propaganda. The great positive changes we’re currently witnessing started in 2012, the year of the old record. “Record” means “most, ever, in history.” They gave you the numbers, but, as part of the standard practice within the global news blackout surrounding this subject, they carefully withheld the percentage increase between them. So I had to do the math. The new Texas nest record is 68% above the old, and the new Padre Island nest record is 87% above the old. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. – ed)

October 2, 2017 – Can the endangered massasauga rattler make a comeback?
The massasauga rattlesnake, designated a federally threatened species last fall, has a tough path to slither, but it seems to be flourishing these days on the 20-acre relic prairie at the Jennings Environmental Education Center.
Public sightings of the stubby snake with black and brown mottled skin increased significantly this summer at Jennings, northeast of Moraine State Park in Butler County. And the center’s snake capture and release study program also had a banner year, according to Will Taylor, park manager of the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Jennings center.
“I can’t go so far to say the massasauga is thriving, but public sightings of the snake are way up this year. And when I’ve been out I’ve seen a lot more, too,” said Mr. Taylor. “We’ve also had a lot more interaction on the capture and release. The year was exceptional in that regard. We caught significantly higher numbers.”
(Let’s count the generalities: “way up”; “a lot more”; “exceptional” (won’t happen again); significantly higher”. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. The Illuminist talking-head Shill kicks it off with “I can’t go so far as to say”, which is a companion to the memes “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled”, used whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. – ed)
October 25, 2017 – China – 12 Fish species reappear in Yangtze estuary.
The Yangtze River’s ecological environment is getting better — and to prove it 12 fish species have reappeared in the river’s mouth.
They include the spotted maigre and the Chinese long-snout catfish.
From 2012, more than 30 monitoring spots were set up in the Chinese Sturgeon Nature Conservation Area at Chongming Island near the estuary of Yangtze River, but the 12 species were not observed until the past year.
Six species such as the spotted maigre have been frequently found in the conservation area in the past year, and the other six species, such as the long-snout catfish are also seen in the area, though not as frequently.

November 27, 2017 – Trumpeter swans’ population comeback on full display at the confluence
A record 1,089 of the birds have already returned to the area’s marshy expanses for the winter, migrating from their northern habitat ranges in places such as Wisconsin, Minnesota or even Canada, based on a count completed last week.
That tops last year’s record of 1,022 counted at the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary in West Alton, helping cement the site’s status as home of the largest number of wintering trumpeters in the interior of the United States. The numbers represent a striking turnaround for a species that was once nearly hunted to extinction across the U.S.
(Back-to-back record years. “Record” means “most, ever, in history.” They gave you the numbers, but, as part of the standard practice within the global news blackout surrounding this subject, they carefully withheld the percentage increase between them. So I had to do the math. It’s 6.5% above the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. – ed)
