Three-eyed fish, too much poop and other green issues you should be horrified about this Halloween

Our Halloween special continues! After we shared with you a list of ten green things you shouldn't be horrified about this Halloween, here's a counter-list of ten green things that you should be horrified about this Halloween:

1. Fishermen trawling a nuclear-plant-fed reservoir in C√≥rdoba, Argentina have caught a three-eyed wolf fish (not a very pretty fellow I have to say..) 

2. The 7 billionth baby is expected to arrive around Halloween (and we have a big poop problem)

3. No one in the media (except the Daily Show) seems to care about a new study that confirms the scientific finding that climate change is real and underway -would it be the same if the results were the opposite?

4. What you can find in the McDonald's McRib sandwich 

5. BP just got an approval to launch its first deep-water drilling since the lethal blowout of its Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico a year and a half ago

The Greenland ice sheet can experience extreme melting even when temperatures don't hit record highs, according to a new analysis

7. Cereal crimes: Bear Naked and other big cereal brands are exposed in a new consumer report for unethical “natural” claims

8. Animals shrink as earth warms (are we next?)

9. More dust storms expected as Texas drought lingers (I wonder if Rick Perry read this one..)

If you have more ideas, feel free to add your comment.

Happy Halloween!
