"An international team of scientists predict seafloor dwelling marine life will decline by up to 38 per cent in the North Atlantic and over five per cent globally over the next century. These changes will be driven by a reduction in the plants and animals that live at the surface of the oceans that feed deep-sea communities. As a result, ecosystem services such as fishing will be threatened." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/12/131231094347.htm
"The apocalypse has a new date: 2048. That's when the world's oceans will be empty of fish, predicts an international team of ecologists and economists. The cause: the disappearance of species due to overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change." http://www.cbsnews.com/news/salt-water-fish-extinction-seen-by-2048/
While epidemics of chronic disease are currently by far our leading causes of death, global warming is considered a looming public health threat. How can we eat to combat dietary diseases and greenhouse gas emissions at the same time?

Female frogs modify offspring development depending on reproduction date
"Global warming is altering the reproduction of plants and animals, notably accelerating the date when reproduction and other life processes occur. A study ... has discovered that some amphibians are capable of making their offspring grow at a faster rate if they have been born later due to the climate." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/10/141030114858.htm

Smothered oceans: Extreme oxygen loss in oceans accompanied past global climate change
"Marine organisms, from salmon and sardines to crab and oysters, depend on oxygen to exist. Adapting to an ocean environment with rapidly dropping oxygen levels would require a major reorganization of living things and their habitats, much as today polar species on land are retreating to higher, cooler latitudes." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/01/150128152155.htm #climatechange #oceans
