THE ENTIRE debate on climate change has been dumbed down by the right. Whether it’s Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or the conservative press, science has been rejected for ideology.

Oxygen is one of the key ingredients for body growth. Ample theoretical and empirical evidence suggests that the capacity for growth is limited by oxygen in aquatic water-breathing ectotherms and oxygen-limitation is one of the fundamental mechanisms determining biological responses of fish to environmental changes, from cellular to organismal levels1, 2. Assuming that other resources for growth are constant, the anabolic term can be expressed as a function of oxygen supply. – Shrinking of fishes exacerbates impacts of global ocean changes on marine ecosystems

What changes in temperature and oxygen content means to our oceans is explained at Nature.org.

Comb through the technical jargon and you’ll see what your children and grandchildren will face if the science of environmental damage caused by climate change doesn’t start winning this argument.

Al Gore was right.
