Perhaps you read recently about Russian surfers seeing dead sea life and becoming sick themselves on the Kamchatka Peninsula? Well, it sounds as if scientists may have found a reason. Toxic waters have wiped out up to 95 percent of life on the seabed (called benthos), and that the current going theory for the cause of this devastation isn’t an oil spill or leaky chemical waste site, but a massive algae bloom, unprecedented in size and duration for the area. While this news may seem like a relief, in fact, an unprecedented algae bloom is far more sinister than a chemical spill. The ocean is warming.
