Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

New Zealand: A Tourist Deathtrap

Posted by feww on February 4, 2008

Welcome to New Zealand!
And how long will you be staying with us, ma’am?

You are twice more likely to be killed on New Zealand roads than in Germany

Four members of a Chinese family from Hong Kong, including a girl aged 10, were the latest victims of New Zealand Tourism. The only surviving member of the family, a 30-year-old woman, is in serious condition.

[Caution: NZ govt. statistics ARE doctored! New Zealand is probably the only country in the world where the dead are statistically resurrected for aesthetic reasons!]

Road Deaths as at 02 May 2008: 425

How many of the dead are tourists? We’ll never know!

How many tourists murdered, killed, “accidentally” lost their lives … in the last 12 months?

WE WILL NEVER KNOW! And that’s what makes NZ such a fascinating tourist deathtrap!

    Tourist cruise ships with up to 1200 passengers in New Zealand top tourist ports are berthed just meters from open air spots where logs are fumigated with methyl bromide.
    Report

    Methyl bromide (bromomethane) is an odorless, colorless nonflammable gas used to fumigate crops, logs and goods. Bromomethane is on the list of banned ozone-depleting substances of the Montreal Protocol.

    “Health effects

    “If inhaled in high concentration for a short period, it produces headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and weakness; this may be followed by mental excitement, convulsions and even acute mania. More prolonged inhalation of lower concentrations may cause bronchitis and pneumonia.

    “The liquid burns the skin, producing itching and reddening, then blisters several hours after contact. Both liquid and vapor severely damage the eyes.

    “Exposure levels leading to death vary from 1,600 to 60,000 ppm, depending on the duration of exposure.

    “The respiratory, kidney, and neurologic effects are of the greatest concern to people.”
