If you like to breathe, then you should hate global warming. If you like to breathe water, that is.
A new study says that global warming will make ocean dead zones worse. Worse means more dead zones and bigger dead zones. Yuk.
Ocean dead zones are low oxygen areas that kill most animals. One natural protective factor that prevents ocean dead zones is ocean mixing that stirs oxygen from the air into ocean water. Global warming is likely to reduce ocean mixing and...voila...bigger and badder ocean dead zones.
This isn't a new issue, but the recent study says the ocean dead zone monster is even bigger and badder than we thought.
