I rise in support of the mcgraw. Viva la science updates!

But too much can create marine "dead zones" as the photosynthesising plants draw all the oxygen from the waters, which can suffocate other sea creatures.

I'm sure NewScientist knows what they're talking about, but don't photosynthesising plants produce oxygen, not draw it?

Nice post. And every single article in my opinion is an example of the beginning of our end! The dark galaxy shows that we probably have more matter than calculated and that means Omega is actually greater then 1, so someday we will all smash into each other like a reverse big bang. THEN you add the natural nuclear reactor, and well that just sounds dangerous. And speaking of dangerous, how about bringing back to life ancient bacteria! Then, with all this phylo sea creatures sucking up the oxygen in the ocean, all sea life will die, and surely we all will suffer as an eventual result. Awesome doomy post! Thank you!

The word mcgraw is looking for is "Boink." Scientific progress goes "Boink" not "Gin."

Good show, good show.

Yes, y2. Yep.

Well, had #2 been, say, Titanic methane rainbows, it would have been an unredundant, double post free apparently random asociation. If, on the other hand, there's a method to the madness involved, it's always prudent to check to see if any link has been previously posted and always polite to give props to the previous poster.

I don't understand this post at all.

At all.

Sorry, but I had to say that.
