Climate Change

Ocean Shock
By Reuters
.
The planet’s hidden climate change
.
The seas cover 71% of the Earth and are home to the vast majority of living things on the planet. Water temperatures are rising.
.
Those rising temperatures are creating an epic underwater refugee crisis among marine life.
.
Fish and other sea life are fleeing for their lives, seeking the even temperatures they need to breed and thrive.
.
For decades, the United States has been tracking about 70 marine species.
.
Black sea bass in the U.S. North Atlantic, for example, have moved about 91 miles north.
.
Here, the data show how the center of the population has shifted each year, from 1968 to 2017.
.
Black sea bass are not alone.
.
This trawl survey tracks where species are found every spring
.
All told, 90% were north or deeper or both
.

In order to reduce my carbon footprint, I am cutting way down on my consumption of beef. I am also taking public transportation more frequently instead of driving.
.
What are others doing to reduce their carbon footprint?

Trying to use bipdegradable products (recycled paper). Use cloth bags for shopping, no plastic.

Not many people know that coffee cups from your local coffee chains are not biodegradable - they are coated in plastic. Bring your thermos and portable containers to Starbuck's, people.

My city just banned styrofoam. This should prove interesting in the next year.

I think it is great that your city banned styrofoam. There is no reason to use styrofoam dishes or containers except that they are cheap, unfortunately. There are better alternatives, such as paper take-out containers or reusable plastic take-out containers.
