(Nature World News)   Good news, everybody. There are 10x the number of mid-depth fish in the sea as we thought. That means there is a possible mate for everybody, except Zoidberg, who will die alone in a non-Dumpster brand garbage bin. And of course, TotalFarkers   ( divider line

common sense is an oxymoron: That Guy...From That Show!: Suckit global warming deniers, now that we suddenly have many more fish removing CO2 from the atmosphere you'll see this explains why what we're saying is true because of weather changes that will keep happening.

A poor troll using even worse science, but someone might actually believe it...

The fish have always been there; we just discovered them recently. One piece of the carbon cycle is more significant than we thought, but the rates at which atmospheric carbon and oceanic acidity are increasing haven't changed because of this discovery. What has changed is that the effects of depleted fish populations can be expected to be more severe than previously forecast, the forecast having to be adjusted to account for the loss of more carbon-shiatting fish than we previously thought existed.

EXACTLY.  Before this the global warming deniers argued that our evidence about there being less fish wasn't valid because there were thought to be more fish.  But now, we've got em because we say that more fish than less means it's worse anyway.   No matter which, less fish or more fish, the deniers lose.

Boojum2k: whistleridge: Wait, I'm confused. So does this still mean we're on track for salt-water fish extinction by 2040, or not?

Probably not. The nice thing about science is that when you come across evidence disproving a hypothesis, you discard the hypothesis, not the evidence. Religion works the other way around.

Oh, aren't you clever.

Oh, there's plenty of fish left but they're mostly ugly fish.
