Whitebaiting impacted by global warming
I’M exasperated by misguided reports and theories on these whitebaiting casualties.
People clearly do not grasp the implications of global warming. Global warming is nothing more than the accumulation of heat energy trapped by increasing carbon dioxide in the upper atmosphere.
The resulting temperature gradients cause storms and freak weather events which are increasingly impacting on margins such as coastal waters, estuaries and inland lakes and rivers. Inevitably there will be increased casualties and risks on those margins.
Gently sloping child and granny friendly beaches, a characteristic of less volatile energy regimes, are a thing of the past.
