Wake Up Now.

Hi,

.

Today is a greeny issue.

It is with regard to the scary changes which are taking place in the oceans….and speeding up all the time.

.

Project Clamer is a worldwide study, where reports from many different are gathered together, as they collaborate in a huge effort to plot the effects of climate change upon the oceans.

.

One very interesting result is that there is a great shift in the habitats of many marine creatures, from whales down to plankton.

.

There are now some unusual species, formerly found in warmer waters, which are migrating into the North Atlantic.

.

There are huge numbers of the very dangerous Portuguese Man O’War jellyfish species found there now.
.

.

The usually sub-tropical species, Pelagia Noctiluca, is also to be found there now, a creature which eats large numbers of young fish, which is dangerous for the already badly depleted fish stocks.
.
This is from YouTube, and shows someone who says they were stung eight times by a mauve stinger (Pelagia Noctiluca) while swimming off the coast of Spain.

.

Because of the shrinking ice pack, new passageways are now being opened up in previously frozen areas.

.

The change in temperatures is apparently causing changes which could be catastrophic, as nothing exists in a vacuum.

Various creatures exist in an established food chain and the effects of a change in one link can affect all of the rest of the chain.

For instance, when bears come out of hibernation they often feed upon salmon which present themselves at the necessary time…. but if there are no salmon, then the bears will probably starve to death along with their new cubs.

.

Plankton, which is being damaged, may not be very glamorous but without it there would be a catastrophe.
.

.

It is all changing so quickly in a selfish world.
