Changes in the Oceans
The oceans are so vast and deep that it's no wonder that we have a lot to learn about them, and it's no surprise to hear that climate change may be affecting them more intensely than previously known. "The warming is having its greatest impact upon the building blocks of life in the seas, such as phytoplankton, zooplankton and krill. Changes in abundance and reproduction are, in turn, feeding their way up the food chain, with some fish pushed out of their preferred range and others diminished by invasive arrivals....Humans are also set to suffer from the spread of disease as the ocean continues to heat up." Scary stuff!
