For one I don't care about sea food. 25 years? How do we know they don't occasionally move north?
How do we know overfishing and mans unnatural selection didn't drive them north?
Blaming the climate is the easy answer to everything.
If you're a Ph.d. marine biologists now,present your self-funded research data to defend your position.I know you wouldn't stoop so low as to accept grant money.

So it's not Obamas fault, it was just the people he appointed to run these agencies and advise him. It was their fault.
I believe there is an old saying that pretty much sums this up: "you are only as good as the company you keep".

Obama was ok, no bill Clinton by any stretch.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Those Koch guys are alright. With out them the carbon cap and tax scam would have likely passed and we would all be broke and nothing would have changed.
The carbon tax would cost you zero.

that's kind of a relativistic term which could be interpreted over 7,000,000,000,000 ways.

With pleasure.
Wants as opposed to needs, and bad choices implicitly means buying what you want while falling short on what you, your family, pets, etc. need.

Once all you need is sorted, there should not be restrictions on whatever you do with the rest of your money, as long as it does not harm others.

Explain those making $65,000 and committing suicide?
'Happiness' seems like such a subjective metric.

Lunar spherules

Asteroid impacts can liquify silicate rock,which,when lofted,solidifies in the form of a sphere and rain out.
Termed 'spherules' by geologists,these structures have been found in at least a dozen beds worldwide,dating from 1.8-to-3.7-billion years ago.
And geologists believe Earth has undergone at least 70-collisions of asteroids as large as the 6-mile-wide asteroid which struck the Yucatan Peninsula,65-million years ago.
Space around our solar system is populated with intersteller material which reaches to the galactic center.
It's quite possible for material to enter the solar system,traveling at up to 69,000-mph and 'dock' with the Moon,settling to the surface without a collision and just sit there for billions of years.This would include spherules.

mini-novae

I went back through the workbook which accompanied the DVD astronomy course.
At end of life,massive stars become gravitationally unstable,experience a core collapse,blow away their outer plasma layers in an enormous release of energy.
Core remnants will be either a neutron star or black hole.
All pulsars are formed this way.
These events are irreversible.
Repeating 'nova' from the same source are impossible.
