Alaska attacked rusty mucus

21.08.2011


A strange orange goo was found in early August on the coast of the village of Kivalina (Alaska). A mysterious orange substance was also found in buckets and containers, which collect rainwater.

Tests were conducted on samples taken at the water surface in Kivalina. According to witnesses, it is not oil, but also is not something artificial and has no smell. Pictures taken with a local woman Midoy Swann show that yellow stuff is spread across the harbor and beaches.

Recently the floating orange goo mystery was solved. As a result of analysis revealed the presence of fungal spores that create rust, thus explaining the appearance of orange soda. However, the results have only led to increased fears in Kivalina. Now, local residents have expressed concerns about water quality and especially fish and plants they use for food.

Scientists still have not determined whether this is a common type of dispute or some unknown species, so there is no toxicological conclusion. It is also unclear whether the matter settles to the bottom, and what are the consequences of its impact on the environment.
