NASA Announces Drop in Ocean Plankton
So here's a bombshell yesterday from NASA (quoted from the UK Independant)
Climate change is killing the oceans' microscopic 'lungs'
By Steve Connor, Science Editor
Global warming has begun to change the way microscopic plant life in the oceans absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - a trend that could lead to a dramatic increase in the heating power of the greenhouse effect.
Satellite data gathered over the past 10 years has shown for the first time that the growth of marine phytoplankton - the basis of the entire ocean food chain - is being adversely affected by rising sea temperatures.Scientists have found that as the oceans become warmer, they are less able to support the phytoplankton that have been an important influence on moderating climate change
