Harvesting whales will stop global warming.
Okay, I'm extrapolating a little bit for my retarded relatives (i'm half Norwegian), but they LITERALLY figure that harvesting minke whales will cause fish stocks to grow and thus will be a good thing. And if that's true, then I figure that will result in more predators on zooplankton (the fish), which will reduce the abundance of grazers on phytoplankton, which will make for more phytoplankton sucking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and thereby reduce global warming. Bingo! Shoot a whale, save the planet.Posted by Randy Olson at June 7, 2004 06:37 AM
