Japan returns to commercial whaling, octopuses are probably smarter than you, oil companies are burning oil to refreeze permafrost, and more! Monday Morning Salvage: July 8, 2019.

Flotsam (what we’re obsessed with right now)

Jetsam (what we’re reading from around the web)

Naoki Hayashi

Lagan (what we’re reading from the peer-reviewed literature)

Driftwood (what we’re reading on dead trees)

So it’s a nice, light week of feel-good pleasure reading.
