So what does this all mean? Well, if you’re a scallop, or a mussel—if you live in the ocean and rely on the oxygen dissolved in its waters—it means it may get very difficult to breathe. As an oxygen minimum zone expands and seeps up onto the continental shelf, that’s very bad news for stationary seafloor dwellers, who can’t move out of its path.
And speaking of paths, fortunately ours and the storm’s that we’re under right now are headed in different directions. I’m hoping tomorrow morning’s Mexico is the tropical Mexico I was expecting.
