Summertime is beach time but all is not well on the coast.

I recently visited my favourite rocky beach, on the southern coast of a Gulf island, in the midst of the Salish Sea. Turquoise blue water sparkled under a cloudless sky and a warm glow lit the encircling bluffs. An otter pulled up on shore, its glossy pelt glistening with salt and sea foam. It held a large rock crab in its claws and chewed on it with relish. The current swirls around the rocks here, carrying cold, oxygen-rich waters into shore, where clusters of mussels, clams, and starfish await the nutrients it brings.

Temperature Increases, Goat Body Size Decreases

According to Phys, research from Durham University suggests that climate change is real and has real consequences, such as making Alpine goats smaller. Researchers studied the goats, formally known as Alpine Chamois, for 30 years. Amazingly, the current goats are 25 percent smaller in body size than their counterparts of the same age in the 1980s.
