DB2: the issue is more one of fitting data into ones preconceptions (Kuhn's paradigms and all that) and jumping to premature conclusions...

The issue as I understand it is much narrower. Is there ANY scientific report, paper, or article about jellyfish, in the last twenty years, that could be construed as instigating or inciting alarm or panic about global warming? I happily admit that I do not follow the jellyfish literature -- I remain almost entirely ignorant on the subject -- but my bet would be NO: there have been no such scientific reports. If someone finds one, please let me know.

AFAIK, all the alarm over jellyfish emanated from journalists and bloggers, not from climate scientists. Am I wrong?
