The effect of global warming on ocean life
A study, published in the science journal Nature, resulting from a
decade-long analysis of the oceans by NASA's SeaWiFS satellite which
measured the changing colors of the waters caused by changing levels of
phytoplankton, sheds light on the devastating effects global warming has
These microscopic plants that live in the surface layer of the oceans
are not only the foundation of the marine food chain, but every day they
take more than 100 million tones of carbon dioxide out of the
atmosphere. According to lead researcher Michael Behrenfeld, “This study
shows that as the climate warms, phytoplankton production goes down, but
this also means that carbon dioxide uptake by ocean plants will decrease
... making the problem worse."

Human activity has impacted Earth’s complex and fragile ecosystems.
The vast evidence gathered throughout the years should be enough to
compel humanity to relate to God’s creation in a way that honors our
Creator. We might not see the devastating effects of our actions during
our lifetime, but generations to come will suffer from hardships due to
our poor stewardship. Animal agriculture contributes greatly to global
warming but the transition to a plant-base diet can help reduce global
warming gas emissions.
