I've also noticed that whales are showing more wrinkles. Maybe in addition to more SPF 50 sunscreen, they need botox.

And has anybody noticed how wrinkled the desert tortoises have become? Maybe we can make that our invented crisis.

What a crock. How does this crap get published?

You're just a capitalist pig who doesn't want your taxes going up to save the whales. The Whale Tax is needed now more than ever--if the U.S. Congress won't allocate necessary monies then we'll need a bond measure Propostion on the California State ballot to fund the scientists who will fix this problem. Don't laugh.

It gets published, simpleton, because of the implications of thinning ozone on humans.

Holy smokes!! Does this mean we might get sunburns too?! Maybe we should ban those CFCs!

I wish we could go back to the 50s and 60s, when none of the kids got sunburns.

Thanks for weighing in...
