Morning Musings

Nature abhors a vacuum, and the Obama administration’s great success story is that it creates a lot of vacuums.
The refugee problem engulfing Europe is the direct result of vacuum created by the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, and the failure to face Assad has led to the arrival of Soviet troops.

The flood of refugees did not just begin. Millions have filled refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon — the hundreds of thousands flooding Greece, Italy, Spain, Hungary, France, Britain and Germany are OVERFLOW!

It will get worse.

Out on the Great Barrier Reef, there is an occasional explosion of the Crown-of-Thorns Starfish, which, when it has occasional population explosions, devours coral at a voracious rate. In the last quarter-century, the population explosions have come with some frequency, leaving the reefs with a great loss of coral. Up to 50%.

About 10 years ago, Australian scientists have worked on an autonomous bot that will seek and kill the notorious starfish, and the bots have just finished their “Sea Trial” with a human “minder” — they will be launched in December to autonomously seek and destroy.

Each bot has sufficient poison to kill 200 Starfish, and if they can be found sufficiently close that just killing one Starfish will kill the nearby Starfish.

  1. So the environmentalists screaming that global warming is killing the reefs are proven to be totally wrong? Where is the NYT on this one?
