Interesting facts on green topics.
==Giant Nomura jellyfish in Japan may be attributed to climate change==Giant jelly fish Nomura jellyfish in Japan have appeared in 2009. They have:
* sunk a fishing trawler when many were caught in its nets
* caused an estimated loss of $100m to the Japanese fishing industry
Climate change may be implicated in their presence, as warmer waters where they spawn near the Chinese coast have been less aerobic, allowing the tiny juvenile jellyfish to grow free from fish predators.
