What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

You should rename the thread "The Official Dead Oceans Thread".  We don't have one of those yet.

I found this link reading Albert. It's a sidebar to an article he wrote last week about worsening conditions at Fukushima (remember Fukushima?)

Here's the dead ocean article, from the NYT. I'll link it, and here's a couple of excerpts.

“If you cranked up the aquarium heater and dumped some acid in the water, your fish would not be very happy,” Dr. Pinsky said. “In effect, that’s what we’re doing to the oceans.”

“If by the end of the century we’re not off the business-as-usual curve we are now, I honestly feel there’s not much hope for normal ecosystems in the ocean,” he said. “But in the meantime, we do have a chance to do what we can. We have a couple decades more than we thought we had, so let’s please not waste it.”
