Considering what we've done to this planet, it's no surprise the animals are fighting back.
But we have to admit we were surprised to see jellyfish having a go. After all, we'd always taken them to be aimless, ineffectual drifters, meandering across the oceans before pitching up in Torquay as the centrepiece of some child's sand castle. A kind of marine Eric Pickles, if you will.
But masses of the little blighters ploughed their way into Torness nuclear power plant's water cooling inflow on Tuesday, forcing EDF to shut down both 640MW reactors – a stunt that not only echoes the classic 1978 film The Swarm, but really puts Greenpeace's efforts to shut down the UK's nuclear programme to shame.
And we'll bet the oil rig botherers never got such an amusing statement out of a major power company. "This is temporary and the reactors will be restarted once the jellyfish situation subsides," an EDF spokeswoman giggled.
The jellyfish attack comes a fortnight after an Atlantic Grey Seal was fished out of EDF's Hinkley Point nuclear plant in Somerset, which begs the question: is the French company being targeted or can other operators also expect to incur the wrath of Gaia?
As ever, the Tank is long on questions and short on answers. But to paraphrase Kent Brockman – Springfield's most respected journalist – we, for one, welcome our new jelly overlords, and would like to remind them that, as trusted web journalists, we could be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underwater fish farms.
