As the Raft moves through the Pacific, riding mostly on ocean currents, it occasionally sheds great hunks of itself. Eventually, these fragments wash up in some place like Santa Barbara, still lashed together, carrying a payload of skeletons and gnawed bones.

When it gets to California, it will enter a new phase of its life cycle. It will shed much of its sprawling improvised bulk as a few hundred thousand Refus cut themselves loose and paddle to shore. The only Refus who make it that far are, by definition, the ones who were agile enough to make it out to the Raft in the first place, resourceful enough to survive the agonizingly slow passage through the arctic waters, and tough enough not to get killed by any of the other Refus. Nice guys, all of them. Just the kind of people you'd like to have showing up on your private beach in groups of a few thousand.

"When you take an organism out of the environment and put it in a new one, the balance is lost. It can outcompete native species and animals.

"You end up with the native ecosystem being kicked out and an unbalanced ecosystem taking its place."

Snarfangel: Oregonians always greet foreign invaders with fire or high explosives.

Andulamb: In other words, this isn't the first time something has crossed the Pacific.

True, but this time a local government can justify budget increases for an invasive species. Arizona Oregon should just build a wall at the border.

what? those species are already here, there... boats. it's one ocean. if u flew them on a 747 and dumped them into boston harbor it might be a different issue or used nuke to complete link the atlantic and pacific along the panama canal route... but ... you know what... u get imbalance then nature balances out after awhile. homeostasis. complex nonlinear systems. life finds a way. these environmental freaks are just looking for jobs. that flamethrower would be better used cooking soup for the homeless.
