Another perspective: Noise

Chesnee is perhaps 300 miles from the Atlantic ocean. Fresh water plankton do exist, however.

Global Warming perspective (No One Has Really Claimed This One, Yet):
WASHINGTON Reuters News Service- The largest ice shelf in the Arctic, a solid feature for 3,000 years, has broken up, scientists in the United States and Canada said on Monday, (reported Sept. 22, 2003). Writing in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, Warwick Vincent's team said all of the fresh water poured out of the 20 mile long Disraeli Fjord. This in turn has affected communities of freshwater ... plankton and algae, said Derek Mueller, a Laval University graduate student who has studied the tiny creatures.
