The bad news?
A new heatwave in the Pacific Ocean has researchers fearing a loss of marine life similar to the one that resulted from the last one, an event known as The Blob.
Ocean temperatures as high as five degrees Fahrenheit above normal stretch from Alaska to Southern California. It’s second only to The Blob of 2014 and 2015, which caused cascading changes in the marine ecosystem. And already, the mass of warming water is hotter than in the early days of the last event. Current forecasts show it continuing for months.
