IN THE NEWS — “A single strain of marine bacteria called Alteromonas may consume as much dissolved carbon in the ocean as an entire, diverse bacterial community, according to a new study. The researchers found the results surprising because of the immense diversity of molecules that constitute dissolved carbon in one form or another in the ocean. Some of this carbon consists of carbohydrates, but a significant portion of it ‘is simply uncharacterizable, in that even modern chemical techniques cannot determine what it is.'”

We’re not saying that this phenomenon is related to the prophecy of Rev. 16:3 in any way … but the fact that it is showing up “at such a time as this” makes it well worth watching and paying attention to. Read the rest of the story at LiveScience.
