Good News about Global Warming: Healthier Salmon!

Salmon: A Delicious More-Than-Likely Non-Toxic Fish

Norwegians, especially Norwegian salmon, may actually benefit from the effects of global warming.

How? In a weird twist of “mankind as evil contaminator,” more rains in Norway due to global warming may help dilute pollutants that blow into Norwegian rivers from other European countries.

Before, these rivers relied mostly on winter snow runoff to wash out contaminates. These days, Norway is getting an increasing amount of rain rather than snow, so this translates to a more prolonged cleansing of their rivers. The Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) is responsible for the study.


Unfortunately for these poor fish, this might just mean that we’ll gobble them up quicker. No complaining, though.

Depleted ozone leads to cleaner rivers. Weird stuff! Well, that’s what we’re here for, looking for that eternal silver lining! See this article from ENN for more info.
