More incontrovertible evidence that the climate is changing. At this point is really not possible to believe we aren't affecting the planet.

Can you please be more specific, not everyone (me) clicks on links. Thanks. Were there mermaids involved?

Nope, just Atlanteans and dinosaurs from the center of the Earth.

Unfortunately no mermaids.


When scientists on a boat in the Gulf of Alaska pulled their net in August, they saw something stunning: a live ocean sunfish.
Mostly found in the tropics or temperate waters, these giant 6-foot-long snub-bodied creatures are incredibly rare in Alaska. And that was just the start.
Four days later, one of the same researchers saw a warm-water blue shark circling near another sunfish. Days after that, the boat hauled up yet another living sunfish.
“No one had ever talked about seeing one alive,” said Wyatt Fournier, research fish biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Not only did we get two aboard in one week, but my commercial-fishing buddies started telling me they were bumping into them when fishing for salmon.”
The waters of the Pacific Ocean have been so unusually warm this year that fishermen and researchers from Alaska to California have spied a host of bizarre visitors, from thresher sharks that rarely make it north of Vancouver, B.C., to the northernmost recorded sighting of a skipjack tuna.


I didn't copy the whole article, it's long, sorry.

Sunfish, sharks, tuna etc. no mermaids

What if the last 150 years of recorded temperture were an anomaly.

Maybe he's finally able to come home.

They believe the severe warmth may well be the result of poorly understood natural variability — in this case a ridge of high pressure that kept the normally stormy Pacific unusually calm through two winters. That helped prevent cold water at depth from churning up and cooling the ocean surface. “I don’t know that there’s much to make of this, other than you’ve got a really unusual two-winter pattern of weather that left a huge imprint on the ocean,” said Nate Mantua, with the Southwest Fisheries Science Center in California.
umm correct me if im wrong but from the quote above it seems this one falls on nature,i mean thats how i took "poorly understood natural variability" to mean so seems the scientists aren't quite sure whats causing this one or at least dont fully understand it

I didn't need any more evidence that climate changes.
The fact that the Sahara desert was once covered in lush vegetation.
I am fairly certain that man didn't cause that event.... If you are claiming that man is causing the anomaly in the article.

All he does is create threads to start arguments and then leaves.

I'm cool with there not being mermaids, They are hazardous to male's health...

Currents change and do weird stuff. When fishing for tuna off the coast of Washington, you usually have to go 100 miles off shore. For a few years they were finding Tuna much closer (30-60 miles). A few years later they were back to the normal spot.

Many aspects of the ocean, climate, and weather change from year to year. Never has it been the case that each year is exactly like the last. Taking single situations and attributing to human caused global warming, global cooling, or climate change is a huge leap.

Cool story, bad presentation.

Thanks for all the fish (literally). Hopefully these appearances and murder-by-nets are an anomaly which will correct itself, as other posters have said (or wished), and the ocean cools again where it should cool.
