Automobile tires, not climate change, are killing West Coast salmon


Just last year, PBS and Popular Science were screaming about "climate change" being the cause of salmon deaths. It seems they were wrong - dead wrong. New research from the University of Washington published December 3 in the journal Science, exonerates "climate change" in the salmon-killing caper and finds a surprise villain: an additive to automobile tires, not "climate change." In fact, the researchers specifically ruled out climate change-driven water temperature increases as a cause.
