Marian Locksley's insight:

Sharks play a role in mitigating climate  change. The “domino” effect described above—where loss of  sharks leads all the way down to the loss of coral reefs—could threaten the  health of oceans worldwide. The oceans provide a third of our world with food,  reports SharkAngel.org. They produce more oxygen than all the rain  forests combined. They remove half of the atmosphere’s manmade carbon dioxide,  one of the greenhouse gases that causes climate change. They also help control  Earth’s temperature and weather.

Marian Locksley's insight:

WASHINGTON — Shell’s plans to bore two wells in the Arctic Ocean this summer may be jeopardized by an obscure permitting requirement that effectively bars drilling operations close to each other in waters off Alaska.

The restriction highlighted by environmentalists opposed to Shell’s Arctic drilling campaign could be a major stumbling block for the company, which has spent $7 billion and seven years pursuing oil in the region.

The provision is embedded in the government’s rules for obtaining a “letter of authorization” allowing companies to disturb walruses, seals and other animals in the region — among the last permits Shell needs to launch activities in the Chukchi Sea next month. Under a 2013 Fish and Wildlife Service regulation, those authorizations are precluded for drilling activities happening within 15 miles of each other.

The two wells Shell wants to drill this summer are about 9 miles apart.

A major report warns that life in the seas will be irreversibly changed unless CO2 emissions are drastically cut.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Scientists have warned that marine life will be irreversibly changed unless CO2 emissions are drastically cut.

Writing in Science, experts say the oceans are heating, losing oxygen and becoming more acidic because of CO2.

They warn that the 2C maximum temperature rise for climate change agreed by governments will not prevent dramatic impacts on ocean systems.

And they say the range of options is dwindling as the cost of those options is skyrocketing.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Seagrasses - the underwater plants that act as nursery grounds for young fish - need more protection, say scientists.

Monitoring of seagrass meadows off the North Wales coast found areas damaged by the likes of boat moorings, anchors and vehicles crossing at low tide had reduced value to the ecosystem.

Fewer species of fish were found where seagrass was degraded, according to research published in PeerJ journal.

The seagrass studied was near the village of Porthdinllaen, in Gwynned
