doing to my home??? Please stop littering my home, please stop making my home more acidic, please stop warming my home, and please stop reducing the oxygen I have to breathe in my home!!
To read an article at the Irish Weather Online website entitled, "Marine Species Face Global Extinction Says UN Report" please click on the highlighted words in this sentence.
Wow, when I read words like this I get very worried about the future of this planet and all the life on it!!:
"The combination of stressors on the ocean is creating the conditions associated with every previous major extinction of species in Earth’s history."
"Many of the negative impacts previously identified are greater than the worst predictions."
"Increasing hypoxia (low oxygen levels) and anoxia (absence of oxygen, known as ocean dead zones) combined with warming of the ocean and acidification are the three factors which have been present in every mass extinction event in Earth’s history."
If this is not a warning to all of us on this planet that we need to change our behavior then what is?? It is time all of us on this planet work together to reduce these current problems: pollution, acidification, ocean warming, overfishing and hypoxia (deoxygenation)!!
