re: Primeval forest discovered in Gulf of Mexico

That's awesome but it doesn't even compare to the marine life on a platform in the gulf

difference is: one is getting protected and the other is getting removed

Whose?

Nobody lived here brah, until 12-14K year ago. Since that's from 50K years ago, future injuns had not crossed the Bering Straight yet.

Somebody should link this to the Evolution thread.

It seems like this would have tremendous potential to provide much needed real data in the AGW debate.

I wonder what interest is protecting the location? fishermen, eco crowd, etc.........

Okay, the wood will be destroyed in 2 years or less.

Does anyone else think that we should harvest the wood right now?!!!

Imagine what one pristine trunk is worth! I guaranty near or over a million dollars. The entire forest? Millions.

If I was a motivated underwater logger, I'd be all over this story. Why allow the trees to simply be destroyed? Bring those frickers up as soon as possible. Put a few in a museum and then sell the rest for premium wood.

Not surprising to see this. Sea levels have been much higher and also much lower than they are today. Its why we see marine fossils in Colorado and tree stumps in the GOM. Cool stuff.

Checked my Bible, no mention of it. I'm not buying it, nice try atheists. Have fun examining your magical everlasting trees while you're burning in hell.

I wish I had the time to read the entirety of that thread; or wish I paid attention when it was first started.

re: Primeval forest discovered in Gulf of Mexico
In 1997, my family and I went to Perdido Beach, Florida for a family vacation. Hurricane Danny was set to strike Louisiana while we were gone so we boarded up and continued on with our plans for vacation. By the time we arrived there, category 1 Hurricane Danny changed direction and was headed right for us in Perdido Beach.
It ended up making landfall in Mobile, Alabama. This was a VERY slow-moving hurricane and it decided to move very slowly to the east. Since it wasn't a horrible storm, we decided to cancel our vacation and head back home (could still drive in it if you were careful). Interstate 10 over Mobile Bay was still open, although not many people were on the road at that time.
When we arrived over Mobile Bay on interstate 10, the hurricane had moved enough east to create a strong, 60-80 mph sustained NORTH wind there. The north wind blew about 90% of the water of Mobile Bay out of the bay and into the Gulf of Mexico.

What we witnessed while over Mobile Bay was the most amazing thing I had ever seen. We saw hundreds of HUGE, old ass cypress tree trunks on the floor of Mobile Bay. These had been covered up by the water for God knows how long.

I have been telling this story for years to friends and nobody has believed me. I'm so happy this article was published and am even more intrigued to learn more about it, now that scientists are studying them.

I thought they were about 600 years old so I'm very intrigued to learn they're estimated to be nearly 50,000 years old!

to those studying this.
