It had to happen. As if the plight of the polar bear wasn’t punishment enough for our evil, selfish, refusing-to-change-our-lifestyle-because-we’re-addicted-to-oil ways, it now seems that Mother Gaia may have a deadly new weapon up her sleeve: KILLER MUTANT SHARKS!!! (H/T Brown Bess)
So far, admittedly, Mother Gaia is in the very earliest stages of her experimentation:
Scientists said on Tuesday that they had discovered the world’s first hybrid sharks in Australian waters, a potential sign the predators were adapting to cope with climate change.
OMG, they are surprised that two different breeds of shark mated. “We’ve never seen this before”. I mean come on! Just because they’ve never seen it before means that it could never happen? What a bunch of BS. And how did they come to the conclusion that this happened as a result of climate change? I think it was probably more a case of a couple of horny sharks got together and just did what comes naturally. Humans do it all the time! I think that is very racist attitude to believe that sharks should only mate with their own breed.
I laughed when I saw this post. Muskies and Northerns mate, Ooops, they are not supposed to do that! I doubt they read a book from the science community before they make their decision? What a joke.
Why the feined shock and/or outrage? It was/is a simple scientific report re: an unusual biologic occurrance, which appears to be possible due to changing water temps in that area of the planet. Some will attach global warming as a possible cause, others may not. I would conserve my energies for real issues, not just manufactured ones. But you all won’t, I know that.
It’s a simple scientific report. You don’t need to worry.
