The Pacific Northwest isn't acidifying its waters. Willapa Bay borders the ocean & has vast mudflats at low tide. The acidic ocean rolls in &........"steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling" doesn't have a hi skule deegreee, makes errors as great as 500 million TIMES, & is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

So he has move the oyster hatchery to Hawaii to get away from the problem, but what happens when acidification reaches problem levels in Hawaii?

Guess Dirtling doesn't care (assuming he cares about anyting, though I have seen no evidence of it). The extra costs associated cost Washington state employees, not him.

My thanks to SpamBotty for spotting my typo.
I'm still not sure about this "career" thing he keeps mentioning, especially as I've been retired for 23 years and not considering a comeback.

'tiny-minded anne' has proven 1000 TIMES that the difference between 'your' & 'you're', isn't a typo.

You're right, my little injun friend, dyslexics and illiterates usually use your instead of you're, but never you're for your.
In this instance, it was what I call a brain fart, something that happens to me very rarely, unlike your good self, who suffers brain farts daily.
I trust you'll accept my humble apology for the dastardly sin I have committed against the English language, but I can assure you it isn't because I don't have a "hi skule deegreee," mainly because it doesn't exist.
