How the warming oceans can blind sea creatures

Pilots flying at high altitudes need extra oxygen, or they’ll start to lose vision — and eventually pass out. Similarly, creatures dwelling in the oceans also require oxygen to see. Unfortunately for them, the seas are now gradually losing oxygen, a problematic marine event known as deoxygenation. Recognizing that this loss of oxygen could also...CONTINUE READING

Why sea creatures are fleeing their houses

There are 3,800 big thermometers floating in the ocean, and the readings don’t lie: Over 90 percent of the warming created by humans is soaked up by the seas. Unsurprisingly, many creatures are feeling the heat.  In new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature, scientists found that global warming has forced twice as many...CONTINUE READING

Greenland’s fastest-melting glacier has stalled. However that’s dangerous information.

Like a snake slithering back into its den, Greenland’s lengthy Jakobshavn glacier has retreated over 25 miles since the 19th century.

Excessive local weather trade suffocated just about all ocean lifestyles 250 million years in the past

The Great Dying was as nasty as it sounds.  Some 250 million years ago, around 95 percent of ocean species vanished during the planet’s largest-known extinction event, also called the Great Permian Extinction.  The culprit is suspected to be extreme climate change, as epic volcanism filled the atmosphere with carbon dioxide, which gradually heated both...CONTINUE READING

Mesmerizing video shows what would happen if an asteroid crashed into Earth’s oceans

In films like Armageddon, Hollywood has valiantly tried (and failed) to take on the question of what would happen if a comet or asteroid plunged into the oceans on Earth, but what has scientific research actually determined it may look like? America’s National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has posted a new video illustrating what...CONTINUE READING
