The Plankton Belt

This is a strange little blog post that I’m linking to, despite being too mind-blown to comment on. It reminded me of articles I’ve read discussing how geology decided the battle of Gettysburg, or weather patterns having a huge historical impact. Who knew plankton had such longlasting effects on American society?

All of which is to say, when you cover politics, sometimes, without realizing it, you are also telling rock tales. Geology, every so often, peeks through.
