    NERO GOT BAD RAP
    We Certainly Will Not
    got a decade or two ?
    Deoxgenation due to climate change is already detectable in some parts of the ocean. New research from NCAR finds that it will likely become widespread between 2030 and 2040. Other parts of the ocean, shown in gray, will not have detectable loss of oxygen due to climate change even by 2100. (Image courtesy Matthew Long, NCAR)

    .. The oceans are in deep doo doo. And it's our fault.
    .. Lacustrine and fluvial measures to save such species as Steelhead and Salmon, may be all for naught as the oceans warm.
    .. And, warm they are becoming. An AGU publication details research findings that show a critical threshold for oxygen absorption in the oceans is approaching in the near term.
    .. This is not hundreds of years in the future but is with us now and may be critical within 10 to 15 years.
    .. Some vast areas of our oceans may soon become uninhabitable for the marine species that depend on them.
    .. Areas along the west coast of North America and some areas surrounding Hawaii will probably be significantly affected by 2030 or 2040. Some of us will live to see those days.
    .. The study is based on landmark simulations run on supercomputers that have for the first time factored in the natural variability in the cycles of oxygen absorption and deoxygenation.
    .. Just thought you'd like to know.
