    Bees.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varroa_destructor

    Varroa destructor is an external parasitic mite that attacks the honey bees Apis cerana and Apis mellifera. The disease caused by the mites is called varroosis.

    Varroa destructor can only reproduce in a honey bee colony. It attaches to the body of the bee and weakens the bee by sucking hemolymph. In this process, RNA viruses such as the deformed wing virus (DWV) spread to bees. A significant mite infestation will lead to the death of a honey bee colony, usually in the late autumn through early spring. The Varroa mite is the parasite with the most pronounced economic impact on the beekeeping industry. It may be a contributing factor to colony collapse disorder, as research shows it is the main factor for collapsed colonies in Ontario, Canada[1] and Hawaii, USA.[2]

    BUT...

    Aliens AND global warming.

    I kept asking you to read what you are posting, you're a smart man. You've taken a statistic class or two. Instead you just post headlines thinking they mean something.

    I'll break it down for you like I would to a child, lets say there are 20 members of the Denny family. I walk into your house and kill 90% of you. That leaves 2 members of the Denny family left. Now technically your family isn't dead but getting 18 out of 20 of you is enough for me to claim that I killed the Denny clan. Lots of people would look at that and agree. Killing 90% of the Dennys means they're dead. But one of the two Dennys has a baby. You jump up and down, release press announcements with lots of pretty graphs. "No, the Denny family isn't dead. Everything is fine. Look, we just increased by 50%. 50%! Woo Hoo! We're thriving! Everything is fine!"

    Your 50% doesn't mean much. Your pro industry links don't mean much. Seeing a bird eat a fish doesn't mean much. Posting links to sites that describe how tasty fish are and provides recipes to cook them doesn't mean much.

    I do read them. It's funny how my links aren't one sided.

    Aliens. My links saying otherwise aren't valid.

    You said the oceans are dead. They're not. Or the birds wouldn't be eating anything out of them, now would they.

    So in joking around with Brianiac I said the oceans are dead. You follow that up with, "Everything is fine, I saw a bird eat a fish." Which statement/position is closer to the truth? I would say mine. Killing 90% of the large fish in the ocean is closer to dead then to everything is fine.

    But killing Denny's family doesn't make the human population dead bro. Using large fish doesn't account for the millions of species of life in oceans. Saying the oceans are dead and using reference of a small group of species in the ocean to prove it doesn't work.

    Now under your analogy, if we killed all countries except for Cuba, then we can say humanity is pretty close to being dead.

    Not backpedal. Just clarifying, defining what we are talking about. Again, 90% of the large fish are dead vs everything is fine.

    You realize you proved one of my main points, right?

    Bogus data (usually based upon faulty models) and bogus associations of cause to effect where no such relationship exists or can be proven. All this leads to outrageous bullshit claims (the oceans are dead).

    Compared to your outrageous claim that everything is alright because you saw a bird eat a fish?

    If God wants us to die from global warming, then we should not fight His will. I'm going to sit in my chair all day and get drunk, because if God wants me to do anything to resist nature, he will get me out of my chair.

    If God wants crime to stop, he will stop it. The government should not do anything to resist anything.

    I didn't say "alright" now did I?

    I said the oceans aren't dead. Proof of life is proof they're not.

    But that's not what God said. It could be how you misinterpret the word maybe?

    God made it clear that we must be proactive with our talents and grace.

    3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

    4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

    5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

    6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

    7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

    8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

    9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

    12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

    13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

    14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

    15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

    17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

    Matthew 13 (2-17)

    Only one fix for that too. Reduce the number of tree fallers.

    Few if any of these articles posted are interesting. Several years ago, I went into La Push on the mouth of the Quillayute river to seek refuge from a storm coming from the Southwest.
    Interesting place, the local there harvest a whale a year and a sea lion or two, I don't know how many. Anyway, I bought a couple crabs from them and a bit later an old guy stopped by with some smoked salmon he said I should try. Damn! it was super. I asked him why it was so good? Seal Oil! They use seal oil in the marination before smoking the salmon.

    About now, you are wondering, WTF? Too damn much science about about shit that doesn't matter is paid for by grants allocated to mold the voter.
    We now have but a few Native Americans permitted to kill a friggin seal or seal lion which eat the fish we all like and pay to raise. We now have more fucking seals and sea lions, than have ever existed because some do gooders got a law passed that only a hand full of people can eat the buggers. But we pay year after year to study some more on whats wrong with the salmon.
    I remember when the smoked salmon on the coast tasted so much better than it does today, much like the Qullayutes' make. What happened?

    Then I could tell you about squid clogging up the harbors on Monterey bay, but I shall save that for another day.

    Those do gooders are a freaken joke. They are so adamant about life "not human life of course", because they totally contradict themselves condoning woman have the free right to kill a baby in their womb. Those sick fucks are absurd. They don't even know what they really want. It's just hipster to be against killing animals, and not very hipster to be against abortion.

    Some of the deforestation maps are pretty depressing, but the real issue is GMO high fructose corn syrup
