Shizuoka reactors’ output lowered due to jellyfish

Actually, this Plague-of-Jellyfish is normal in globally-warm Japan. Just take a peek over the edge of a dock on Tokyo bay. Any place where the waves are somewhat still, amongst the Japanese-love-of-nature litter, the water looks like you could walk across it over the seething mass of jellyfish.

This is just further evidence, but by shutting down nuclear reactors, the only current viable alternative to fossil fuel power plants, they ensure we use more coal and oil power plants, contributing to the environmental change they love. We must top them before they begin constructing saltwater-filled vehicles to roam the lands and take over.

A similar incident was also reported recently in Israel when millions of jellyfish clogged down the sea-water cooling system of the power plant. Such massive invasions of the species have raised speculations and scientists are trying to figure out the reason behind such unusual growing trendsmore
