Oxygen-starved fish to shrink significantly due to global warming


Oxygen-starved fish to shrink significantly due to global warming

Fish are likely to get smaller on average by 2050 because global warming will cut the amount of oxygen in the oceans in a shift that may also mean dwindling catches, according to a study on Sunday.

Average maximum body weights for 600 types of marine fish, such as cod, plaice, halibut and flounder, would contract by 14-24 percent by 2050 from 2000 under a scenario of a quick rise in greenhouse gas emissions, it said.

“The reductions in body size will affect whole ecosystems,” lead author William Cheung of the University of British Columbia in Canada, told Reuters of the findings in the journal Nature Climate Change.

    This is just another flawed global warming ‘study’.

    During the Medieval Warming Period, the last go around of ‘global warming’, everyone prospered and food was aplenty.

    Fish were likely much larger too.

    Liberals are idiots.

    You can’t be serious about posting this article. From the CS Monitor no less – former principled magazine, now owned and operated by the Left.

    I don’t know why this keeps re-surfacing. Global warming was a way for Environmentalists to get money out of the Gov. for Research & ” Study.” It has bee proven all over the Globe to be a Hoax, just like Carbon Footprint & Green House Gas. A way to “Black Mail,” World Governments.

    I love global warming. On Earth Day I turn all my lights on, idle my truck and have a bonfire of old tires in the backyard just before my annual trek to Canada to club baby seals.

    That’s really funny. These guys don’t know what the left hand is doing! It was just reported that the Antarctic ice cap is the biggest it has ever been in recorded history. Kindly have them explain how ice is formed in warm water? Then have them explain why Al “the Dink” Gore had advised someone not to invest in alternate energy as it doesn”t pay? The last thing you need to ask is why we humans are causing this so-called global warming when there was only a million or so people on the earth when the last ice age cap over much of the world melted…reindeer farts, mastodon belches????

    Could it be that fish are getting smaller because of over fishing? We are catching them at an earlier age.

    Amazing that the radical leftists who pose as professors at institutions of what used to be higher learning still think they can fool the public into believing global warming is real. The only thing shrinking is the number of people who a) believe in global warming; and b) think “professors” are anything but egotistical, elitist con men.

    Reuters has always been far left, and they’ve gotten worse in the last few years.

    no one ever seems to speak of the SUN’s role in Earths temperature changes, we have been experiencing MASSIVE solar flares and SUN spot activity, which accounts for 99.9% of ANY temperature changes in the earth, the sun emits 1100 watts of power per square foot of earths surface, that’s well over 1000 times more energy than man could possibly produce or use currently, when the “Facts” contain the real reasons for temperature changes, then and ONLY then will people start listening.

    next time some Liberal Progressive starts ranting on CO2 and Global warming, ask them if they know how much CO2 is in the atmosphere…..390 Parts per MILLION, up from 280 parts per Million in 1700…..yes, then ask them to do the math….and tell the rest of us just how a trace gas, can conduct so much additional HEAT in such a low concentration…….
