CBS L.A., May 29, 2017 (emphasis added): Hundreds Of Sick, Dying Seabirds, Seals Found On Shores Of Ventura, Santa Barbara Counties… Elaine Ibarra, who works with the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network, estimated hundreds of pelicans and loons have died… she has never seen so many. “They’re very stressed out, and it is really hard to see something have a seizure and know there’s very little that you can do to help,” the animal care coordinator explained… Kyle Cory often walks on Silver Strand beach and sees the ill sea birds all the time. “I can see anywhere between 6 and 12 every walk. So there’s something going on,” he said. “It’s affected me in a bad way because it’s just not good to see on the beach.” He said he will keep documenting the dead wildlife he sees, hoping it’ll somehow help. “How many have to die before somebody cares?” he asked.
CBS L.A. transcript, May 29, 2017: “A disturbing trend off our Southern California shores… Hundreds of dead pelicans and other sea birds are washing up on local beaches.”
Huffington Post, May 31, 2017: Since at least April, dying marine animals and birds have been washing up en masse on the shores of Southern California’s beaches… sick or dead sea lions… loons, pelicans and even dolphins had also been found.
CBS 8, May 30, 2017: It’s become an alarming sight along the Southern California coastline. Wildlife experts report that it’s normal to see some dead wildlife this time of year, but they’ve never seen this many sick birds… The dead pelicans and loons can be seen up and down the coast… “That could be from temperature, runoff, we’ve had a lot of rain this year, so some people are speculating that it might have to do with the runoff into the water,” said Ibarra…
CBS 8 transcript, May 30, 2017: “Something in the water is causing a massive die-off along Southern California beaches. Dead and sick seabirds and seals are washing up from San Diego to Santa Barbara… It’s definitely an alarming sight to see… [Wildlife experts] haven’t seen quite so many sick birds before… The number of sick birds out there is extremely high… Experts are not sure of the exact cause of death.”

LOL, I just finished this summary on another blog, and came back to a fresh article, very topical.
Well here is some stuff that will rock your world.
Krill off gas elements that cause cloud nucleation. Strong sun hurts krill, so its a protective effect. Clouds mean cooler temperatures.
Krill use a tough biological structure called Chitin. Chitin absorbs man-made radiation at rates of 200 to 20,000 background levels. Radiation destroys the bonds that make Chitin a useful structure.
So even "low" levels of man-made radionuclides, can bio-magnify and kill the krill, meaning less clouds, and hotter temperatures. Incidentally the krill sink pretty quickly, taking the radiation to Davy Jones Locker.
Obviously we had an el Nino, but on top of that we had the progression of Fukushima fallout and continued releases into the Pacific, a so called "blob" of radiation as measured by Woods Hole Oceangraphic Institute, which moved pretty in line with the hottest of the blobs. This radiation/krill/cloud heating event superimposed on top of the El Nino.
We saw the results with half the whales gone from Hawaii in 2016 and I participated in the 2017 NOAA whale count, but haven't reviewed their synopsis, not sure if it is completed. And of course on the West Coast, the mass die-offs should be readily apparent to anyone not living under a rock. One main basis of the ocean food chain, the krill, have been toasted by radiation.
NOAA in 2016,
