How Random…And Concerning!!

Here is proof that what goes around comes around!

  • Humans release tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
  • The carbon dioxide causes much of the greenhouse effect.
  • The greenhouse effect results in an increase in global warming.
  • Global warming causes the temperature of the ocean to increase.
  • Rises in ocean temperature have brought an increase in the amount of plankton around an island in southern Japan.
  • This increase in planktom has led to an increase in the number of crustaceans, called nanatsuba-kotsubumushi, around the island.
  • The crustaceans are digging holes in the island to make nests.
  • The small holes are weakening the rock on the island.
  • The rock is rapidly eroding as a result of bio-erosion.
  • This bio-erosion is causing the island to disappear!

Hopefully climate change won’t do to us what it did to the Neandertals in western Europe 40,000 years ago.
