This story shows how us humans are killing the ocean and how dolphins, full of painful lesions from fresh water exposure, are dying in great numbers, as a consequence. This year alone, nearly 300 dolphins have died. Plus, due to the BP spill that occurred on April 20, 2010 that you can read about here, their reproductive capacities have still not recovered. Here's the dire scientific prediction:
"Scientists predict the annual dead zone — a giant blob of polluted, deoxygenated water linked to algae blooms — will grow to the size of Massachusetts and suffocate even more marine life later in the Gulf this summer."This report tells me that we really do need to listen to the fishermen and shrimpers whose lives are not only directly impacted by climate change, but whose knowledge and experience stand to fully illuminate, and optimally responsive to, the senseless politics related to Louisiana’s rapidly sinking coastline.
