Join me and my colleagues as we embark on the Benthic Assemblages in the Twilight Zone (BATZ) expedition to characterize benthic assemblages in the mesophotic or “twilight zone” (50-200 m) using a deep-diving Phantom II remotely operated vehicle in the Gulf of Mexico August 25 – September 2nd, 2008.
Szabo is right, oil will sustains us for years to come, almost 20 or even 30. That means I can drive my Hummer around until I well into my 50’s. Those are going to be some very sweet times indeed. I can take my three-armed children down to the beach, its surely going to be a warm day, and play in the acidic ocean. And as I am driving home in my wonderfully large SUV, we can enjoy the beautiful sunset because of increased particulates in the air. What a glorious time!
