"Since it was July, I think I'll have to go with David DeSante and call this the 'Silent Summer Effect' as well...It's really a dead zone. There are no butterflies, no birds. Very few, and it's very, very clearly the result of the radiation contaminants." Presentation at Pt. Reyes, CA September 2, 2015
The quote above is a reference to 'Deadly Deceit--Low Level Radiation, High Level Cover-Up' chapter 3, titled 'Silent Summer,' which is about ornithologist Dr. David DeSante's observations regarding the probable effects of Chernobyl radiation on landbirds at the Point Reyes Bird Observatory and its similarity to changes in birds in Japan since the Fukushima disaster. 'Deadly Deceit.......' was written by Jay M. Gould and Benjamin Goldman with Kate Millpointer, and published April 22, 1990 by Four Walls Eight Windows.
