Pacific ‘dead zone’ said to exceed fears

Pacific ‘dead zone’ said to exceed fears

(from phys.org)

“(AP) — Scientists say the oxygen-starved “dead zone” along the Pacific Coast that is causing massive crab and fish die-offs is worse than initially thought. “

Scientists find large Gulf dead zone, but smaller than predicted

“NOAA-supported scientists found a large Gulf of Mexico oxygen-free or hypoxic “dead” zone, but not as large as had been predicted. Measuring 5,840 square miles, an area the size of Connecticut, the 2013 Gulf dead zone indicates nutrients from the Mississippi River watershed are continuing to affect the nation’s commercial and recreational marine resources in the Gulf. “

“Dead zones. In a warming climate, a warmer upper layer in deep lakes slows down air exchange—a process that normally adds oxygen to the water. This, in turn, often creates large “dead zones”—areas depleted of oxygen and unable to support life. Persistent dead zones can produce toxic algal blooms, foul-smelling drinking water, and massive fish kills.”

No problems, the fantasy friend in the sky that forgives sins, and the invisible hands of the austrians neo-cons of the ‘self-organizing’ ‘monetary efficiency’ bulls, are going to fix this (in their dreams,) with a miracle of their economic and religious quackery, hallelujah.
