seabirds suffer climate change

affecting the the North Sea food web; A Warm Unwelcome by Audrey Schulman at Grist Magazine.

"We humans have a huge stake in preserving the health of the world's oceans. We currently get 16 percent of our animal protein from the seas and, to do that, we already fully exploit or over-exploit more than 60 percent of the world's fisheries. A decline in ocean productivity due to global climate change and acidification would almost certainly mean less food on the table for a ballooning human population."
