Unusual number of whale and dolphin deaths in the last few days

There is an alarming number of whales and dolphins that have died in the last week or so. They have either been beached or found floating near the shorelines.

85 dolphins have beached themselves near Cape Cod on Jan. 25, 2012

Several whale beachings - list to linked stories

So what is going on? There have been several message boards that are discussing the events but none of them have a marine biologist chiming in yet. Just lay people with opinions that range from "so what" to "it is the end of the world" and "something to do with 2012"
