We talk about climate change in terms of what it’s going to do a lot. It’s going to cause super-storms, it’s going to cause dramatic weather patterns, etc but the fact of the matter is, it’s already causing issues now. Researchers have discovered that the warming oceans have already caused a drop in fish which is bad news.
A lot of ocean attention is focused on trash in said ocean which is important but the temperature of the water is also an issue. Fish just can’t survive at the higher temperatures and this is a problem for, well, humans. Specifically those that live in coastal areas and on islands where fish and fishing is a large part of their culture.
It will take a lot to turn the dial back on these changes but it’s important to recognize that these these changes are already taking place, climate change isn’t just a future fear, it’s happening now.
