I wonder where all that heat came from?
“I don’t want to unduly alarm people, but there are lots of fish in the wrong places these days. This, of course, is connected to the effects of the Great Chinese Climate Hoax. Suitable environments are moving, and the fish are moving with them. Yale Environment 360 has been tracking this phenomenon. Central to it is the simple fact that the Arctic is getting warmer and the Arctic Ocean is becoming Atlanticized, where it is not being Pacificized.
As the Arctic heats up faster than any other region on the planet, once-distinct boundaries between the frigid polar ocean and its warmer, neighboring oceans are beginning to blur, opening the gates to southern waters bearing foreign species, from phytoplankton to whales. The “Atlantification” and “Pacification” of the Arctic Ocean are now rapidly advancing. A new paper by University of Washington oceanographer Rebecca Woodgate, for example, finds that the volume of Pacific Ocean water flowing north into the Arctic Ocean through the Bering Strait surged up to 70 percent over the past decade and now equals 50 times the annual flow of the Mississippi River. And over on the Atlantic flank of the Arctic, another recent report concludes that the Arctic Ocean’s cold layering system that blocks Atlantic inflows is breaking down, allowing a deluge of warmer, denser water to flood into the Arctic Basin.
Entire ecosystems are moving north, to the disadvantage of ecosystems that had existed there for eons.”
