Ocean Food Chain May Be Collapsing

There are indications that the Ocean's food chain is collapsing. Marine biologists are raising the alarm about rising ocean temperatures and dwindling plankton populations, which are the basis for oceanic life. If this proves to be the case, it may well prove catestrophic, and could well undermine sustainability of the entire global ecological system. Other surging threats to oceans include acidification also caused by climate change, and huge dead zones that have resulted from run-off from poorly managed lands. Oceans have long been thought to be too large to be impacted by human beings, but as the human reach encompasses all of nature, it has become clear that even oceans are not impervious to the human stench.
