Experts of the National Higher Scientific Research Council of Spain (CSIC) evaluated the effects of ocean acidification derived from climate change on the clam Ruditapes decussatus and the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis, and found that the phenomenon has different effects on the physiology of the species and on its potential growth.

November 26, 2012: Humans must immediately implement a series of radical measures to halt carbon emissions or prepare for the collapse of entire ecosystems and the displacement, suffering and death of hundreds of millions of the globe’s inhabitants, according to a report commissioned by the World Bank. The continued failure to respond aggressively to climate change, the report warns, will mean that the planet will inevitably warm by at least 4 degrees Celsius (7.2 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of the century, ushering in an apocalypse.... http://readersupportednews.org/off-site-opinion-section/54-54/14730-focus-stand-still-for-the-apocalypse

A new poll suggests national indifference to Japan's whaling. (RT @ZutPetje: End #whaling forever!" 

 

LINK: The Portland-Seattle based law firm of #Miller #Nash will represent the outlaw Japanese whaling fleet which is targeting endangered whales in an international whale sanctuary in violation of a global moratorium on whaling. They are seeking to shut down Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s efforts to defend and protect whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
