We need better agencies running our food supply, parties more concerned about nutritional content rather than mass profitability.

Scientist Rushing To Understand Why The Massive Starfish Die Of
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q27MFgllL0

Years ago in Maine I remember the starfish disappearing, we had thousands of them on the beaches in certain coastal areas.

Maybe they were in this case fished to death but I don't think they died in the same way but I am unsure.

This disease sounds like a starfish version of Ebola or Leprosy...

News flash !

Evolution continues. New species come into existence as life adapts to changing environments, while others become extinct. This has gone on for billions of years, and it continues ....

Very nice George.

DNA is prone to mutations often caused by environmental stress. Smile

@RexRed,
Yes, and that is likely one of several forcing functions behind natural evolution. The harmful ones die out whiles the few beneficial ones tend to multiply.

The idiots who framed the Endangered Species Act evidently forgot all that.

The real world is far more complex than the simple-minded theories by which you would have us all guide our lives. You make that amply evident in the many sappy platitudes and banalities with which you pollute these threads.

Could you please repost a few of my "sappy platitudes" mister smartypants?

Are you the same idiot Geroge that in your arrogant manner told us nuclear power was completely safe just before Fukushima poisoned a great portion of the Pacific Ocean (bought any pacific tuna lately?) and nearly wiped out all life in the northern hemisphere of the Earth?

Your word has NO credibility in this forum...

You certainly like to put on airs right before you take a nasty dump in this energy thread.

Are you the same George that told us all that wind and solar energy were not viable energy resources?

How does it feel like to eat your own words? APPARENTLY you are not as studied as you would make others believe...

@RexRed,
I wrote that nuclear power has a better safety record than either coal, natural gas or wind turbines. That is simply a fact based on readily available U.S. government industrial safety statistics taken over the past 40 years, during which nuclear power stations have produced roughly 22% of the electrical power consumed in the country. The same pattern is observable in the safety data for France, Germany, Sweden, the UK and other nations using substantial amounts pif nuclear power.

The Fukushima reactor failures didn't kill anyone in Japan, though the tsunami that caused it killed over 12,000 unfortunate Japanese along the east coast in villages, towns and even railroad trains. The reactor plant failure certainly didn't come anywhere near close to wiping out life even in the plant enclosures, much less the entire northern hemisphere. Pacific tuna is still being sold and consumed. There is no radiation hazard associated with it. If you're looking for hazards in fish , consider mercury poisoning, though the quantities involved are vanishingly small.

You aren't the judge of credibility on this or any forum, though considering your relative loneliness here, you might want to consider your own.

In these areas I, unlike you, do really know what I am talking about. I'm an engineer with a PhD in Fluid Mechanics and a graduate of Navy Nuclear Power Training (an 18 month course involving reactor physics, design and operations. I was directly in charge of a 1,000MW nuclear plant for four years. I currently manage an environmental consulting company specializing in environmental compliance. pollution prevention and remedial cleanups at sites nationwide.

I didn't write that wind and solar are "not viable" sources of electrical power. I did write that they are about three times as expensive as nuclear or gas, and that, because the wind doesn't blow and the sun doesn't shine all the time, they can never replace conventional sources for base load capacity. I also wrote that without government subsidies and mandates they simply can't compete with conventional sources. These statements are as true today as when I wrote them.

You can find examples of your sappy platitudes on your latest post and almost any of those you have written here.

I don't want to read your whitewash crap about Fukushima. Go try and pedal your nuclear energy to some unsuspecting third world country.

That's OK by me. Stay in your fantasy world. You are its king and apparently its only inhabitant.

This is VERY good news!!!

The Australian Greens are delighted that the World Heritage draft decision recommends its Committee not approve the Abbott government's bid to delist 74,000 hectares of precious forest from the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

This outright rejection is the best possible result - for Tasmania's forests, Australia's international reputation, and the integrity of World Heritage sites everywhere.

It would seem there are slime bag conservatives all over the globe trying to profit from destroying the earth's most pristine nature reserves.
