Your Fault: Turkey Struck By Sea Snot From Climate Crisis (scam)

That long shower you took? Followed by hanging in the air conditioning and eating bacon for breakfast? Your fault

Turkey struck by ‘sea snot’ because of global heating

When seen from above, it looks like a brush of beige swirled across the dark blue waters of the Sea of Marmara. Up close, it resembles a creamy, gelatinous blanket of quicksand. Now scientists are warning that the substance, known as sea snot, is on the rise as a result of global heating.

The gloopy, mucus-like substance had not been recorded in Turkish waters before 2007. It is created as a result of prolonged warm temperatures and calm weather and in areas with abundant nutrients in the water.

The phytoplankton responsible grow out of control when nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus are widely available in seawater. These nutrients have long been plentiful in the Sea of Marmara, which receives the wastewater of nearly 20 million people and is fed directly from the nutrient-rich Black Sea.

In ordinary amounts, these tiny, floating sea plants are responsible for breathing oxygen into the oceans, but their overpopulation creates the opposite effect. Under conditions of stress, they exude a mucus-like matter that can grow to cover many square miles of the sea in the right conditions.

In most cases, the substance itself is not harmful. “What we see is basically a combination of protein, carbohydrates and fat,” said Dr Neslihan Özdelice, a marine biologist at Istanbul University. But the sticky substance attracts viruses and bacteria, including E coli, and can in effect turn into a blanket that suffocates the marine life below.

So, of course it’s your fault, even though it seems more about too much nitrogen and phosphorus, most likely from farming

“The main trigger is warming related to climate change, as phytoplankton grow during higher temperatures,” said Özdelice, noting that the seawater had warmed by 2-3C since preindustrial times. But since countering climate change requires a global and concerted effort, she urged Turkey to focus on factors it could control: overfishing and waste water discharges.

“This is also an outcome of overfishing because as filter feeders which consume phytoplankton are excessively hunted, it allows room for [phytoplankton and sea snot] to breed,” she said.

Even before the added pressure of climate change, the semi-enclosed Sea of Marmara could barely shoulder the burden of the densely populated and industrialised Marmara basin, Sarı said. “But as temperatures rise, the sea reacts in a completely different manner.

Or is it actually your fault, at least in terms of Hotcoldwetdry? It’s like they just throw ‘climate change’ in for the hell of it when the causation is something else. Because that’s what cults do.

    92º F here today, and yup, I went ahead and turned on the air conditioning. But, then again, I’m not a warmunist.

    The perpetually aggrieved William Teach whines because global warming is caused by CO2 being dumped into the atmosphere. Victims as far as the eye can see!

    The once proud conservative movement has become a collection of snowflakes listing their grievances of how they’re being abused.

    From the *science is settled* department…

    Good chance that runoff is the cause.

    Algae blooms have occurred for centuries, but this one is “Global Change/Climate Warming”.
