What the hell is 600% less of something???

The news reported in leau of the Orcas facing extinction (whose diet is salmon) had runs 600% lower than 40 years ago. In other words, over 6 times less than what it was. Oh salmon is on the endangered list too.

That is one seriously F'd up website.  I clicked the first link and saw no mention of orcas or salmon. They need to hire someone to design a better site instead of using some free thing.

Oh I can find others but too lazy. There's news on it every week here. Sorry for not providing a better post. On phone and posting is a pain in the , ummmm, rear end.

Can't read the article without turning my adblocker off.

But anyways, 600% less is not the same as 6 times less. 100% less is zero; 6 times less is one-sixth.

why don't the Orcas go to Safeway?  :dontknow: Lots of salmon there 

Orcas are expanding their range and we have resident pods in SoCal now where they were extremely rare 30 years ago.

It depends on your starting point.

This hot January is a concern. Normally we have manatee huddling around the springs for the necessary warmth, but it hasn't been cool enough for them to leave the river which has more food. It is not unusual for these runs to start before Christmas. We were swimming in the Atlantic on Christmas Day...and the beach was crowed.  My concern is...which the news media hasn't picked up on yet... is that we don't have cold fronts processing through an cooling the Atlantic. Hot ocean water are the fuel for hurricanes. Expect very strong storms next summer.
