Medieval Climate Anomaly is the name of my Air Supply cover band.  We play exclusively at renaissance fairs.

Just plug in a compressor to a sunken chest that blows bubbles and releases it when the lid gets full..

Next weeks shipment should have been here. This explains it. Thanks.

2 stars would not order again. Delayed for some stupid reason.

There are some companies trying to find more commercial uses for kelp.  Kelp farms are about the only way to turn this around, because (A) they pull out acid and restore oxygen to the water, and (B) may provide a substitute for some plastics.  If we could develop a kelp based drinking straw the world could be saved.

Is there a tariff on that too?

According to the researchers, human-induced pollution, from fertilisers and sewage running off the countries surrounding the Baltic into the sea, is the main driver of recent oxygen loss in the region's coastal waters.

It is incredible the lack of concern shown when the cause is not climate change...

Shows that the reason ACC threads are so popular is because people want an argument on the internet and to intellectually bully and brow beat people.

When nobody disagrees, nobody cares.

Psst, the article goes on to talk about how a lot of that fertilzer run off/etc has been stopped, but the issue is persisting/the damage is more severe than thought.

Like.

They don't have a time machine.

Also, if "no one cares", exactly where did this research come from? The aether?

(And fertilzer run off as a problem WAS a big push in the environmentalist community.)

I mean nobody on Fark cares. A whole 11 posts, WOO!

I have been part of environmental campaigns n stuff before. Farming runoff, plastics, new roads, deforestation, acid rain, lead in petrol, that sort of thing and you are right, it WAS part of 'things that are concerning' but it is less so today in the media and public opinion. That sort of stuff just does not get many inches in the media since we have had dramatic climate change headlines to splatter everywhere. We had a good one recently, full of fire and brimstone, just like the old ones.

Sure someone is studying it somewhere and that shows someone cares but someone is also studying beetle penis stiffness so I guess someone cares just as much about that...
