Heatup Roundup: Waiting for Studio Notes Edition

One of these days I will outline the majesty of the sitcom development cycle, but while there's a break in it, the following.

Scary article in The Indpendent: warming oceans will cause the plankton to die, killing off plankton feeders and a carbon sink for us human dudes. Of course, I always think these studies have their nuance stripped off during processing for newspaper articles.
