Jellyfish swarm northward in warming world

Read more here:

"Scientists believe climate change — the warming of oceans — has allowed some of the almost 2,000 jellyfish species to expand their ranges, appear earlier in the year and increase overall numbers, much as warming has helped ticks, bark beetles and other pests to spread to new latitudes."
Note: I like the word "believe" when we are supposedly talking about science. This is a cue for you to prepare for higher taxes to cool things back down. The jellyfish are another indicator of the coming doom that is global warming.

May I remind the reader about how much respect the environment gets? Just take a look at the Exxon Valdez here - now there's a jumbo-sized problem to consider - but as usual - the well-heeled won that battle while the little guy took the beating. From the article:

"The Exxon Valdez oil spill occurred in the Prince William Sound, Alaska, on March 24, 1989. It is considered one of the most devastating human-caused environmental disasters ever to occur at sea. As significant as the Valdez (pronounced /VALDEZ/) spill was, it ranks well down on the list of the world's largest oil spills in terms of volume released.[1] However, Prince William Sound's remote location (accessible only by helicopter and boat) made government and industry response efforts difficult and severely taxed existing plans for response. The region was a habitat for salmon, sea otters, seals and seabirds. The vessel spilled 10.8 million U.S. gallons (about 40 million litres) of Prudhoe Bay crude oil into the sea, and the oil eventually covered 11,000,000 square miles (28,000,000 km2) of ocean.[2]"

If you think for a moment that your public officials are "doing something" about the environment - look into the Exxon Valdez mess - look at their actions - Exxon got off the hook for wrecking a pristine area. Now all of the sudden all these political hacks are worried about the planet? I smell a tax hike.
