Warm water doesn’t hold as much oxygen as cold water and this may have effected the Oar and other deep sea life’s ability to survive.

Worse still, the truly gargantuan quantities of methane at the bottom of all the oceans stays at the bottom because cold water keeps it there. When, not if, it starts to come to the surface we are completely – for lack of a better word – fucked. Climate Change will go through the roof (and then some). At that point the planet Venus will probably be more hospitable to life!.

We are in uncharted territory with our terra-forming of earth.

Another animal that lives at great depths has been found coming to the surface.

It's not just the oarfish acting strange and showing up in startling places - Who knows - it just on the last few years the pacific ocean has had the tsunami from japan wash unbelievable amounts of petro products and chemicals as well as common garbage into the ocean -

Add in global warming and fukishima dumping 400+ tons of highly radioactivewater into the ocean and the recklessness of our stewardship of the oceans and environment upon wich our survival as a species depends is astoundingly short sighted and destructive.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
