You missed the fun part. Sure, Russia dumped a world class volume of persistent toxics off the Kamchatka Peninsula. Sure, pretty much everything swimming in the area - algae to whales, is dead.

The fun part: A large fraction of this planet's net photosynthesis occurs RIGHT THERE. (Amazon Jungle day photosynthesis is mostly cancelled by night photorespiration).
