What happened to the worldwide conspiracy of scientists...

Loren, hopefully now that you've recovered, the issue is more one of fitting data into ones preconceptions (Kuhn's paradigms and all that) and jumping to premature conclusions.

From the University of Southampton press release:

www.alphagalileo.org/Organisations/ViewItem.aspx?Organisatio...
"To date, media and scientific opinion for the current perception of a global increase in jellyfish was evidenced by a few local and regional case studies. Although there are areas where jellyfish have increased; the situation with the Giant Jellyfish in Japan and parts of the Mediterranean are classic examples, there are also areas where jellyfish numbers have remained stable, fluctuated over decadal periods, or actually decreased over time.

"Increased speculation and discrepancies about current and future jellyfish blooms by the media and in climate and science reports formed the motivation for the study."
