Attack of the Sea Blobs?

National Geographic reports that mucus-like sea blobs have been forming in what appears to be an effect of rising water temperatures. Yes, that sounds like something you’d read in a sci-fi novel; marine biologists who have studied the blobs say they can contain harmful bacteria and viruses and have the potential to kill sea life. An author on the study of the mucilage suggests that this is a good call to action for all of us to seriously take action against global warming. Amen.–Stef McDonald
