    Good read, thanks.
    As for climate change. I don't see where some of you don't think it's something to worry about. It's a human/man made climate change going on. Not a natural, Mother Nature, what/however you want to call it, one. Will wild life still be able to adapt and survive? Who knows, sure hope so. But when the climate is changing due to so much crap/poisons/garbage going into our atmosphere, heck, into our everything, oceans, etc, it sure makes me worry.

    Thanks for posting this. I just today had this come across my desk, almost one year old!!! Sarah does some wonderful work and needs to be honored more often than she is. Again, I thank you.

    I despise when a post about a scientific finding imbues the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
