Today, or 100 years from now.

"A biologist studying wild songbirds in New York State has found that all 178 woodland birds he tested last year had unusually high levels of mercury in their blood and feathers, a sign that the toxic chemical has spread farther in the environment than previously thought."

So tell me, which is scarier for wild life? Mercury, or CO2? To me it's a slam dunk.

Yet all we hear in the old stream media is global warming, a sketchy hypothesis of 100 years from now. Today we are experiencing species decline, not because of CO2, but mercury.

It's a scary world, when the media doesn't understand the difference between today, and 100 years from now. The attention span of the public is not too long, let's talk about today's menaces, please.
