Climate Change Extinguishing Ocean Food Chain
Recent weeks have witnessed the warmest September on record globally, a drought plagued Amazon, unprecedented melting Arctic ice and of course the mega-hurricanes. If you walk out your door and sit with nature you can feel her distress. Now there are indications that the oceanic food chain is collapsing. Again I repeat the biological fabric of being is disintegrating. The plethora of dramatic global changes indicates that we may be entering a period of abrupt climate change, falling within the extreme range of scientific predictions. My sense is that most people know global warming is happening, they know the skeptics are kooks bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry. But they do not yet know what to do about it. This lack of vision and leadership must be rectified.
Ocean warming threatens Antarctic wildlife
Scientists working in Antarctica have discovered an alarming rise in sea temperature that threatens to disrupt populations of penguins, whales, seals and a host of smaller creatures within a few decades… Rising temperatures and greater losses of sea ice could also spell big problems for krill. A study published last year showed krill numbers had fallen by 80% since the 1970s. Experts linked its collapse to shrinking sea ice.
