    Ooopsies. We guessed and guessed wrong. Then we guess again that we weren't actually wrong, it is just that the plankton are deficient in specfic nitrates and iron. That's the vibe I got.

    I knew it! Global warming is a form fo deliberate attack on the rest of us by the phytoplankton. They've been jealous ever since the other species went multi-cellular.
