It Ain't Global Warming OR Cooling: In a copyright story, the Associated Press reports,
A university researcher has a new suspect in the decline of protected Steller sea lions in the Gulf of Alaska.I've been hearing for years that the decline is due to warming, or something.
A study by Oregon State University researcher Markus Horning says Pacific sleeper sharks may be contributing to the mortality rate of Steller sea lions.
The western population of Steller sea lions, which includes the Aleutian Islands, has declined to about 20 percent of the levels they were before 1975.
