Scientists have developed a method to measure the real consequences of oil spills. What was discovered surpassed worst expectations. The ground zero victims are plankton - the foundation necessary for all aquatic animals and water vitality.

Thank you Deb ! I read about the oil spills effecting plankton not too long ago, and it hit me like a ton of bricks like it just did now. But of course everything is effected - why wouldn't it be ! Ok, I am weary now, so I leave off with a quote by someone who was born in 1743. And surely people understood this simple concept even long before that . What a tragedy is human ! The one fatal flaw ( maybe not just one) A serious lack of forseeing consequences.

Fossil fuels also affect aquatic life by the emission of greenhouse gases that ultimately leads to rising ocean temperatures and increasing ocean acidification.
