“There’s a lot of death out there.” California's sea lions are starving

[Read the post]

News articles I’ve been reading said we have a somewhat heavy El Nino year forming, with really warm water in some parts of the Pacific. The good news from that is that next winter we may get a decent amount of rain and maybe snow; the bad news is that high water temperatures mean low dissolved oxygen and CO2, plankton and krill die off, so fish that eat them die off, and sea lions and other fish-eaters go hungry.
