Considering that every species interacts in some way with every won't be just shore birds impacted. The entire planet will be impacted.

It doesn't help when our own military decide to sink an inhabited island, "with biological diversity." We all can see what's happening but it seems impossible to stop these trains that have no brakes, careening toward...?

Climate change is affecting everything on the planet. Lets hope these birds can adapt to the changes.

It is NOT a matter of "could be" and I wish to holy heaven we'd quit saying that. It minimizes, trivializes what is coming. North Carolina passed a law allowing for an 8 inch rise in sea level. Seriously. Yesterday I read that by 2100 (and I think that woefully underestimated in time and number) sea levels will rise by 3 feet. If we start doing something about climate change NOW. We're nowhere close to beginning the dialog let along the actions necessary. And, most climatologists, more than 90%, now think it too late anyway, we are beyond the point where any action could stop what is coming. We, we selfish, short sighted denizens of this beautiful blue oasis in the sky, will not live to see the worst of what is on its way.

Some of us will live through the multiple mega storms and their aftermath, some of us will begin paying for the folly of 150 years of fossil fuel burning in higher taxes to pay for the cleanup, but it is our children and grandchildren who will suffer the most. Just as our politicians have kicked every other problem down the road for them to deal with, so too are they doing the same with climate change. In fact, most see it as an opportunity, no arctic ice, DRILL baby, DRILL, make a few billion more until the ecosphere dies along with those so fragile creatures that are already dying for our enrichment. And by our, I mean, the multinational firms whose dollars before people policies pollute every aspect of life. If there is any bright side, it is that those rich scum are the only ones who can afford coastal properties and it will be their houses that go underwater first. Not that they care, mind you, there is nothing resembling morality in the 1%. What they rant about is nothing more than diversion from what they are doing, distract the people with religious nonsense and attacks on women and minorities while their other hand rakes in profit. We make me sick. For allowing it, them for existing at all, the most despicable class of people to ever inhabit the planet.

And the cause of the greatest mass extinction event this planet has ever seen when their greed brings the ecosphere to its temporary death. The planet will heal itself, but there will be no humans here to see that some 30,000 to 50,000 years into the future. I have seen the devil and his face is red and rich.
