Warm Ocean Temperatures Could Mean Trouble For Marine Life – KUOW

Things are changing far faster than hoped for or even anticipated. It seems that we are in for a very unusual year.  There is just no way for many creatures to cope with this fast a change.

It’s a double-whammy kind of year for the Pacific. An unusually warm winter in Alaska failed to chill ocean waters. Then this winter’s El Nino is keeping tropical ocean temperatures high. Combine these and scientists are recording ocean temperatures up to 7 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than average off the coasts of Oregon and Washington. Jes Burns reports. (KUOW)
