700 tons of dead fish  

Volcano heats Taal Lake

Good morning Robert,
 
Today a friend of mine pointed me to this news: At Taal Lake - south of Manila - volcanic activity suddenly raised the water temperature causing the death of about 700 tons of fish.
 
     Seven hundred tons!
     That's
1,400,000 pounds of dead fish!
     That's
635,000 kilograms of dead fish!

     This should read 1,543,235 lbs. and 700,000 kg.
     See comments (below) from reader in Argentina.

Thanks to Dr. Mirco Poletto in Italy for this link
 

A few weeks ago I posted an article about Taal Lake being heated to 108 degrees. Now imagine what a few thousand underwater volcanoes could do to the oceans.

See: http://www.iceagenow.com/Volcano_heats_high-mountain_lake_to_108_degrees.htm

 

Taal has erupted at least 34 times since 1572. Beginning in early 1991, the volcano has been restless, with swarms of earthquakes, new steaming areas, ground fracturing, and increases in water temperature of the lake.

Robert,

Hi, Ive read both of your books and follow periodically your web pages and completely share your point of view.

Im not certainly scientific guy, but just noted that in todays mentioned article 700 tons was converted to pounds and then to kilograms totalling 635,000, when in the metric system one ton is equivalent to 1,000 kilograms, thus 700 tons are exactly 700,000 kilograms.

Best regards,

Walter is absolutely correct.

When people in most countries use the term "ton," they're referring to a metric ton (called a long ton), which weighs 2,000 kilograms, or 2,240 pounds.

In the United States, a ton (called a short ton) weighs 2,000 pounds, which is only 907.18474 kilograms.

I should have first converted the 700 tons to 700,000 kg, then converted to pounds, which comes to 1,543,235 pounds.

Robert
