I read that as "Jewish-like creatures" take over intake structure and shut down Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. And so it begins

Huh. I had never heard of salps before. They sound fascinating.

Excerpt from wiki: "The solitary life history phase, also known as an oozoid, is a single barrel-shaped animal that reproduces asexually by producing a chain of tens to hundreds of individuals, which are released from the parent at a small size."

Oozoid is my new favorite word.

hehe I was just thinking how that meeting went:

How can we improve the image of the nuclear industry in the eyes of the public? Oh, I know, let's build a reactor in Satan's Asshole Gorge. That sounds pleasant.

You can only filter so much and when something like this happens (a plankton or jellyfish bloom) it's better to shut down and simply wait for the bloom to die down than risk damaging the condenser system.

I remember that episode of "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", all the tiny jellyfish get together and form one giant jellyfish that eats submarines. If you come into contact with them they make you go crazy.

of course if you and your buddy happen to be outside on a dive when they eat your sub, you can tie off the arms and legs of your wetsuits and use your air-tanks to inflate them, lash them together to make a raft-

Well, if you're going to flood the near-ocean with billions of gallons of human waste, don't be surprised if billions of little creatures are going to grow up on the rich deposits of filth then start raising making trouble in the neighborhood.

The result of a lot of agricultural runoff and conducive ocean temps I'm guessing... They bloom up massively when there's a lot of phytoplankton, right? So there must be a lot of phytoplankton to make them pig out and reproduce this crazy then. Maybe better farming techniques in the region would help this from being a problem.

I remember a story similar to this from last year, but in Israel.

Last time I went swimming, I got stung a fair bit (non-lethal ones)
