It’s an Ocean of Pseudoscience Week returns October 3!

Last September we debuted Ocean of Pseudoscience week with resounding success. We covered issues ranging from greenwashing, to bone-eating creationism, to iron fertilization, to maximum sustainable yield, all while counting down our favorite see monsters (most imagined, some real). We’re a bit late this year (it turns out the beginning of the semester isn’t the best time to pump out 30 posts in a week), but Ocean of Pseudoscience will return on October 3, 2011. Get ready for a week of oil spill myths, misunderstood marine life, cryptozoology, and ecotoxicology misconceptions. Our anthropomorphic friends from Deep Fried Sea will be coming along for the ride. We’ll see you then!
