 The cat parasite Toxoplasma gondii, which can cause blindness in people, has been identified in Beluga in the western Arctic. The discovery by University of British Columbia scientists has prompted a health advisory to Inuit people in the region who eat the whale's meat. Researchers say it is an example of how the warming of the Arctic is allowing the freer movement of pathogens.

Beware of Global Warming: it now causes blindness in the Inuit people. I bet there is also a link to the non-randomness of the down-for-the-year to up-for-the-year transitions. Researchers say Global Warming is ultimately responsible for anything (a) random (b) non-random.
