“If all of the forest from San Francisco to the Oregon border died back 90%, people would notice… That’s exactly what’s happening underwater.”
Very disturbing news about the entire ocean ecosystem along the California coast. #Climatechange has thrown the system out of balance and is driving a collapse.
90% of the kelp forest along the California and Oregon coast are gone, ravaged by a cascade of climate-related disasters. Ecological cascades like this are one of the big worries that haven’t yet hit the mainstream radar.
This is very serious. And it’s happening now.
In just 8 years, the climate emergency has wiped out 90% of the kelp off the shores of California and Oregon. Look at those images. Holy shit. I’m struggling to fathom that scale and pace. 🚨 💀 🌎

This is an emergency. We cannot wait. I will declare a national emergency on day one and make the climate crisis my number one priority.
