    ""If you live in a place like Ottawa you might like a longer summer, but we have to think wider about this subject and the overall consequences," said Davies. "

    As a borderline misanthrope I was rather hoping that our tampering with the environment would somehow (optimism too influenced by science fiction, no doubt) cause more nasty-tempered squid like dosidicus gigas to get bigger and go on a people-eating rampage! Alas, that will never be the case. Oh well, I can still dream. :madsci: :cthulhu:

    I share your dream, my friend. However, I'm perfectly willing to settle for some lesser nasty-tempered invertebrate going on a people-eating rampage. Fingers crossed...

    Ah, is that why there have been these repeated mass beachings of Humboldt squid on our California shore?

    Yup, so many big squid in the ocean now that it's getting crowded and they push the weak ones out on the beach ;)
