SAN DIEGO (CBS) – The sighting of a gray whale off the coast of Israel has scientists concerned about what it could mean for climate change.

The whale was spotted on May 8, 2010, spotted off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea, according to San Diego’s CBS affiliate.

“We actually think it belongs to what’s known as the California population of gray whales and that it’s actually a stray,” said Dr. David Weller of the NOAA Southwest Fisheries.

Very interesting. It could be a stray but if we see more it might be a signal that things are changing.

I love this quote from the OP link:


Scientists believe the Mediterranean sighting may signal a change in migration for the species. Grey whales have not been spotted in the Atlantic Ocean since the 18th Century when they became extinct there for unknown reasons.


Really????? Like we just didn't hunt them down like we did every other large whale in the Atlantic? Unknown reasons my >!@#@!!

Put this together with this:

Not saying it is all true. Pleas play the if game...

If it is then there is a begining of expanssion of biodiversity. Plankton is the lowest level of the food web in the ocean's. Whales pretty much the highest, who just happen to love ...Plankton.

Okay, let me get this straight...

Grey whales used to be in the Atlantic back in the 18th century.... and now they're coming back.... and scientists are panicking and blaming climate change ?

If that's the case, then what kind of climate change was going on in the 18th century that they were hanging around the Atlantic ??

So we're supposed to panic because the grey whales are migrating back to where they used to be before ?

Am I reading this right ?!

I guess they should just carbon-tax us,...

After all, a hundred years of smoke-stacks is enough to trump hundreds of millions of years of sun activity and volcanoes, ocean gas-off, and vegetation decomposing...

Then the whales will go home...

Of course, there is always the possibility that we are seeing one of the most sinister and invasive forms of occurences known to man, the statistical anomally !!!!!
Maybe the whale just forgot to put some new batteris in it's Garmin before it started migrating!!!!

maybe its because the japanese have been a little busy the last few months......the whales feel safe enough to come out and play a little.

For me it doesnt really matter if global warming real or not.. Man made or not.. Does it take a genius to want to a clean home? Do you all sit around in a garage mostly closed with a car runing on sunday afternoon? Do you have to kick Styrofoam take-out boxs out of the way when you stand up from the computer desk? Do you like old, moldy coke bottles and soured milk contaniers in the fridge?

Then why would you support life in a poluted world?

Can't we have these discussions without the usual hyperbole that accompany threads on climate change?

It's incredibly annoying.

And yes, I don't think the whales just up and disappeared. They were likely hunted to death in that part of the world, hence their "disappearance" in the 18th century.
