kronicfeld: Giant crabs are a bad thing?
Tomahawk513: Did anyone else check out the "Rush Limbaugh 13-year-old disproves..." link from that page? Fun Fact: "...a mere 24 peer-reviewed articles reject global warming, compared to a staggering 13,926 scientific articles that substantiate it." Ouch.
EddyKilowatt: I nominate the annual defoliation of Central California's oak trees by oak moth caterpillars, instead. Formerly a quasi-decadal event, it is now just getting started for the third straight year in a row, and trees will start succumbing (rather than bouncing back) soon.This is a pest with which the trees have co-habited for millenia, which has historically been kept in check by a deep freeze every few winters that decimates the moth lifecycle. Like most climate change effects, you can't point at any one event or one year... yet the long-term trend doesn't bode well for the dominant tree of our forests.
arisingfailure: What's wrong with giant crabs? It would be the best Maryland crabfeast ever.... Still working on giant beer pitchers...
Loucifer: Giant Blue Crabs from the Chesapeake Bay? I'm moving all my assets into Old Bay futures.
