Attack of the Jellyfish : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Hey, cpr, look what your precious oil rigs are doing....

MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 11  Jellyfish are swarming through the northern Gulf of Mexico in unprecedented numbers, signaling an ecological shift that could mean sweeping and catastrophic changes for Gulf fish populations. Hordes of jellies are positioned in prime spawning areas just as breeding season for many popular gamefish kicks into high gear. Scientists say the animals have already started eating eggs and larva at an alarming rate.

Talk about tricky timing. Sorry for the double post. I guess it was a story worth repeating.

We're seeing masses of jellyfish along the California coast, the likes of which haven't been seen in 30 years.

I put out a quick search for a recent article about our jellies, the coves are full of 'fried eggs' & have been for months.

Couldn't find the aticle, but did turn up a nice page on the central coast by Phil Greenspun. If some of y'all need to take a mini- vacation, check out his photos & comments:

"Such a total collapse in the Gulf is less likely, because its a much more open and diverse water body and ultimately may be more resilient."

But the earth worshippers don't want to read that kind of info, they would rather stick to doom and gloom and act like the sky is falling....that is until the next "global disaster" after this one dies off (cooler currents kill the jellies or send them back to the south)

Same old nonsense, different day. Blah blah blah
