optimax, just to be absolutely clear, I believe in anthropogenic climate change. I believe, based on a broad canvas of popular and expert references, that not only do we face warming, but also the potential catastrophic change in ocean chemistry as a result of increasing CO2 levels dissolved in seawater that will precipitate the destruction of the current plankton food chain and fill the oceans with hydrogen sulfide-spewing anaerobic organisms to the exclusion of all other species.

You can read an admittedly alarming but very well documented synthesis of chemistry, biology, sea current studies re: salinity, temperature and composition, anthropology and astrophysics that all, play a role in various theories of climate change that predicts this scenario in "Under a green sky: global warming, the mass extinctions of the past, and what they can tell us about our future." by Peter Douglas Ward, Smithsonian Books/Collins 2007

Charles I,

There is a dead-zone in the ocean off the coast of Oregon.

Mark,

The nuclear engineers I've kown are all retirement age but I do meet plenty of young environmental scientists. Maybe that's why the emphasis is on windmills and solar.

In a probably irrelevant aside, I no a man who was in Texas doing a bird count for a proposed windmill farm who told me that the blades create a vacuum which explodes the bodies of bats. I wonder if there is some high frequency sound produced by the windmills that attracts bats. Would like to see a study, don't want to destroy a necessary creature in the ecosystem.
