Catastrophic Climate Change is HERE NOW!

The Great Barrier Reef Can't Be Saved 


But don't worry about a thing. Trumpy will make sure it all goes away ....

Yeah. I know. It's extremely **** depressing. I never even got to see it. Of course, I'm afraid of Box Jellyfish. When the reef dies, that's probably what'll be left anyway.


I know that Jellyfish are extremely hardy. The collapse of the life producing Great Barrier Reef biome, it being that reefs have such a disproportionately large role (over 90% of fish nurseries are in reefs - the rest are in estuaries) for life in the oceans, will result in effect that may well be far more deleterious than boosting jellyfish populations.

The question is, will the phytoplankton and zooplankton take up the slack to keep fish populations (after the mollusks can't make shells and die in droves so the fish have no food) all over the planet from collapsing (and going extinct) or not? I don't think so. WHY?

Marine Trophic Pyramid


The trophic pyramid has mandatory TEN TO ONE energy math that no species can get around. The food chain BELOW the life forms that feed on it MUST be ten times larger than the one above it or the species above it goes extinct. The reefs system, plus the phytoplankton and the zooplankton, have now been reduced BELOW the thermodynamic requirement of ten times (at least) the size of the predators that feed on it.

Expect over a third or more of all macroscopic (i.e. especially the ones we eat) marine species to die within a decade. The collapse of the Ocean species web is now inevitable (and has been ongoing for at least a decade already, albeit at a slower pace than we will now experience).

Do the math on the size of the Great Barrier Reef versus all the other reef systems on the planet. Then you will see that the Great Barrier Reef is about HALF of all the planetary reef systems in area. That is now practically DEAD.

We know who the Criminals in this profit over biosphere destruction are. It's time we went after them. The planet will be just fine. It is in our best interest to make it illegal to pollute the biosphere, whether it be from burning fossil fuels or other chemical processes the polluters make money off of.

The total of all Reef systems occupy a small percentage of the total surface area of the oceans. But if the reefs die, which is exactly what is happening, and is exactly what has been predicted by climate scientists for DECADES, we aren't gonna make up for that by eating crickets.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
