Not Quite Jubbling Worthy Fourth Edition: Fish On Anti-Depressants, Eco-Power List, Wearable Pollinator Frocks Attract Bees and The World Is Sinking

Stories that are not quite Jub-Worthy There are stories out there that merit the cycle of agonizing over our thoughts and limited writing abilities for four hours, and others that might be interesting but are just as well represented by a link. Here are those links.


  • Anti-Depressants Affecting Montreal Fish – Every Montreal fisherman’s tackle box should include: Worms, salmon eggs, Blue Fox spinners and Prozac?

    Twenty-five percent of Montreal’s residents take anti-depressants which are then entering the St. Lawrence river through the city’s sewage system. Solid waste is removed but the water is not treated and this allows anti-depressants to flow into the river and possibly into the fish. What’s the affect? Care2.com
  • Eco power lists: Fatuous, invidious and misrepresentative – You have to visit George Monbiot’s blog and read his post “Power Trips.” His issue is with The Observer newspaper’s “Green giants: the eco power list” article. In Mr. Monbiot’s words: “[Lists] are invidious. They extract a few characters from a vast collective effort: generally those who are skilled at taking credit for other people’s work.” He’s got a point – how else can you explain Jay Lenos name being included on the list? Is it because he owns 240 cars and he converted one of them to run on tequila? Guardian.co.uk/Monbiot Blog
  • Pollinator Frock Attracts and Feeds Bees

  • Wearable Technology “Pollinator Frocks” Are Wearable Gardens That Attract, Feed Hungry Bees – This is one of those eco-ideas that has Darwin Award winner written all over it. The “Pollinator Frocks” feature microscopic images of pollen and are treated with a sweet nectar that attracts and feeds bees and other hungry bugs. Other considered ideas: mens catnip underwear and the chum swimsuit. Ecouterre
  • Dubai’s World of Islands is Sinking Into the Sea – Here’s another one that could’ve been thought through a little better – Dubai’s amazing and questionable “World of Islands” development is sinking. Created with dredged sand, a buttload of money and modeled after the 7 continents, the “World of Islands” was going to be a opulent retreat for the wealthy who could stake their claim and own their own “country” island. Unfortunately, it’s sand carried between the man-made islands that is causing them to erode. Inhabitat
