Jellyfish Keep Planet Cool

Jellyfish May Help Keep Planet Cool
Jellyfish and other related creatures may be helping to reduce the effects of climate change by stirring up the oceans, according to a new study in this week's issue of the journal Nature.

It seems jellyfish are intelligent creatures and making their presence known to us in vivid ways. They swarm, they "attack" nuclear plants, they're answering the cry of the oceans. (I'm not sure why the article comes with two clips of a scientist squirting green fluorescent dye at a jellyfish; cool effect and fun, but how does it affect the jellyfish, and there wasn't any information on the purpose.)
