Cold kills one million head of cattle in Peru

“One lion killed in Zimbabwe has got a lot of attention in the Main Stream Media,” says reader Argiris Diamantis. “One million cattle dying from the cold gets no attention at all.

10 Aug 2015 –  “COLD KILLS ONE MILLION HEADS OF CATTLE“ reads the headline on Con Nuestro Peru.

A catastrophe for camels, sheep and cattle in the country.

The National Civil Defense Institute (INDECI) reported on 5 August that cold dead animals reach 912 300. At the time of writing that number could have risen to one million. Most are fine alpacas. There are also 508,000 sick animals.

This is a disaster unparalleled in our history.

Frightening is the situation created by the snowfall that hit especially the poor peasants.

The problem affects the entire nation’s pantry, because it  means less meat and less milk for the population. But the palaces are well supplied.

A few years ago, when television showed children of Puno just shod with sandals, walking on snow and many of them died of cold, a European friend said: “In Sweden there is a more intense cold here than in Puno, but no child dies of cold. ”

The secret is food, warm clothing, adequate housing.

The governments, scientists, technologists, consultants and producers in the cold countries have developed strategies that our bureaucrats should study. Before the cold spell in 2013, the magazine Agronoticias recommended:

-Selection and adaptation to extreme cold resistant breeds.
-Improving Massive natural pastures for greater nutritional value, as well as combating parasites that thrive in the cold.

“One lion killed in Zimbabwe has got a lot of attention in the Main Stream Media,” says Argiris. “A disaster unparalleled in the history of Peru gets no attention at all.”

“Even the President of Peru chooses to ignore this disaster.

“Why? Because this news might disturb the new Global Warming religion.”

  1. Argiris,

    You’re so right about the misplaced priorities regarding a single lion’s death in Zimbabwe. The environmentalists are all about hypocrisy, as evidenced by the lack of outrage over the mining waste disaster in Colorado caused by the EPA that’s dumped heavy metals and turned many miles of pristine mountain river into a yellow-orange mess. They would rather turn a blind eye to TRUE disasters and ignore large-scale regional suffering of both animals AND humans. They have no heart, no soul. I am an avid supporter of environmental matters but on the local level, by those closest to the land, and spearheaded by those who aren’t devoid of common sense like the EPA and the Sierra Club.

    Alpacas are the lifeline to Peruvians. Just as cattle are to rural Africans and Indians, providing animals to the people will do the most good for their recovery and self-sufficiency. Let’s hope charities get this into the news or else Peru can go the way of Venezuela as well.

  2. And the tens of thousands of PEOPLE the tyrant/dictator of Zimbabwe has killed, and continues to, gets NO mention either.

  4. The hypocrisy of the world ‘s media is quite astounding. Not only in the example of the Peruvian livestock but also the slaughter of over 4,000 South African & Zimbabwean farmers by Mandela’s rainbow nation and Mugabe’s Nth Korean trained killing squads.

    Never a mention of these atrocities and then one wonders why sales of printed media have dived to all time lows. There are also certain electronic / TV media many have simply tuned out.

    I also boycott products of advertisers screened within 2/3 minutes either side of the objectionable and generally untrue stories.

  5. I think radiation is making it a lot worse. Not just cold.

    Robert Felix talked about electromagnetic dangers when the ice age comes.

    After all, the 120,000 Saiga antelope who died within a few weeks weren’t cold:

    It wasn’t cold that made thousands of seabirds from all species abandon what I think was the biggest rookery in the USA in May 2015, leaving eggs and nests behind:

  6. I’ve lived in Peru for several years and I know the country well. The differences between climatic zones in Peru are enormous. While in the tropical zone of the Amazon the difference in temperatures between day and night is around 10 C average, in the city of Juliaca located at Lake Titicaca (3800 – 3900 m), that difference may reach in winter even over 30 C. Five years ago, after having a major discussion about earth cooling with an Andean shaman, a friend of mine, I wrote a letter to the Peruvian authorities stating that in several years the climate of some high located zones above 4000 m above sea level would change and areas previously fit for Andean cattle and potato farming would have to be abandoned due to severe cold and snow. Obviously I didn’t get any reply from them.

  7. This is a catastrophe that should be all over the MSM.

    Notes: Most of the “cattle” were actualy alpacas, who do very well in the cold.

    A poster on a forum from Peru said they have had a particularly WARM winter.

    This is more evidence that the real cause is RADIATION.
