Climate study suggests rapid warming ahead for New England coastal waters

“Temperature surge likely to have dramatic impacts on aquatic life

“There may be more trouble ahead for New England-based fishermen, as a new NOAA study shows that ocean temperatures along the U.S. Northeast Shelf are projected to warm twice as fast as previously projected and almost three times faster than the global average. The findings are based on a complex analysis of several different climate models.”

GR:  To counter attacks by the energy industry, climate scientists have been cautious with their projections.  They have avoided emphasizing worst-case possibilities. They have not thrown down their gloves and insisted that planners prepare for the worst. Consequently, continuing investigations keep turning up inarguable facts that conditions will be worse than projected. Like this one.
