Lobster

Lobster was bountiful in early New England. It's become so again. Is this the result of good management, practiced in Maine better than anywhere else?

Or is it Global Warming... again?

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/dec/08/we-live-in-a-lobstoc...

According to a report released earlier this year from the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) in Portland, while the lobster population has risen over 500% along Maine’s coast over the past 30 years, the population is expected to drop by between 40% and 62% by 2050.

Once again, the alarmists reinterpret *everything* to be part of the narrative. Once again, history is ignored in favor of future predictions by the leftist crystal ball.

Lobsters were so abundant in the early days—residents in the Massachusetts Bay Colony found they washed up on the beach in two-foot-high piles—that people thought of them as trash food. It was fit only for the poor and served to servants or prisoners. In 1622, the governor of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford, was embarrassed to admit to newly arrived colonists that the only food they "could presente their friends with was a lobster ... without bread or anyhting else but a cupp of fair water" (original spelling preserved).

In 1622, we were in the midst of the Little Ice Age... hardly Global Warming. So how do these fools figure that *warm* water means more lobsters? I thought it was rich *cold* waters that were supposed to be more productive?

I thought your Bronze Age

I thought your Bronze Age middle eastern fairy tale book instructed you people not to eat lobster? (Leviticus 11:12)

Anywho, here is a link to a recent report on the dire consequences of climate change, put out by none other than your orange messiah’s administration.

You’re welcome.

That bit of nonsense was put

That bit of nonsense was put out by the scumbag democrat Obama administration hold overs that Trump should have purged.

BTW Toolsmith, the lobster industry is nothing more than a livestock farming operation.
The traps are set with a tasty morsel that the lobster go in to eat.
The ones that are small enough go right back out and continue visiting until large enough to be caught.
The larger males and egg bearing females are released back to re-seed the ocean floor.
The over fishing of the ground fish populations, which prey on lobster fry has also been a boon for the lobster industry, allowing the young lobsters to survive in greater numbers.

UG: True, a well done

UG: True, a well done livestock management. Much like the way other animals like deer are managed.

My point is that superabundance has occurred before, without any human role, in the cold waters of the Little Ice Age. So the assumption in the story that only warm water can cause a more modest abundance is baseless.

"Bronze Age middle eastern fairy tale book"

Another gem! Where do you keep getting these things? We relatively rich "first worlders", like our ancestors the Romans and other "civilizations", have drifted into the ancient lie of gnosticism through the last ten centuries by "modern thought" aka pride-borne narcissism. Fear not! The Emperor (of self worship) is naked!

1 Corinthians 2 - The Message of the Cross (v 18-25):

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

Jews demand signs and Greeks search for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

Leftist hypocrisy holds that

Leftist hypocrisy holds that tolerance applies in all cases... unless it's something the left dislikes. Thus you have attacks on religion as fairy tales conducted by those who believe in their own fairy tales (Gaia, socialism, etc.). It makes no sense, but they know everything so that makes it OK.

We all do, pal...

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5&6
