OCEAN Researchers view the UK as a Canary in the Climate Change coal mine. Last winter they were devastated by floods from 22 back to back storms. The coast experienced 30 foot waves on top of storm surges. Between Spain and the UK, an estimated 32,000 sea birds perished. This issue’s articles cover everything from shared problems between Cape Cod oystermen and Shetland Island shell fishermen; the mysterious presence of “Micro Beads” seemingly everywhere; an incredible, innovative technique for creating building piers near wetlands without excavating; Awarding our very first “Environmental Vision Grant”; and lots of things to think about and share.
