Shifting Baselines

Last week, a smack of moon jellies jammed the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant off the California coast. The rise of slime and the closure of power plants. Just another shifting baseline.

    Moon jellies? At first I thought you meant Moon Pies. I guess the former makes more sense.
    McCain mocks nuclear safety

    “We talked about nuclear power. Well, it has to be safe, environment, blah blah blah.”

  3. Yes, I bet McCain didn’t hear about this. Hilariously, he visited a nuke recently to extol the virtues of nucular and how safe and great it is, and he chose the Fermi reactor, which’d melted down in 1966 or something when they were testing fast breeder technology. Can’t believe it’s still in service.

    My first thought was Homer Simpson and jelly donuts.

    Was it jelly, jam, or Polaner All-Fruit? Accuracy is important here.
