Barbra Streisand, environmental forecaster, in 2004:
THEY’RE LYING –
WHILE THE GLOBE IS FRYING –
AND THE FISHES ARE DYING IN THE WORLD.
But the fishes aren’t dying. Ms Streisand lied to us through song:
Red salmon used to return each summer by the thousands or tens of thousands. Now, between the early run just finishing and the late run just beginning, they come by the hundreds of thousands.
There are so many, in fact, that fishery managers sometimes question the ability of anglers to catch enough. Already this year, the early run of fish has exceeded what biologists peg as the maximum spawning goal by some 20,000 fish. This has become the norm.
Our old friend global warming is suspected of playing a hand in this awesome Alaskan enfishenment. Streisand should write a tune in celebration.
