Could climate change doom Maine lobsters?
Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:Scottyboy, 9/3/2014 3:16:05 PM

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Comments:
More headline grabbing alarmism from the warmists. Of course the bugs will just adapt or move like animals have been doing for millions and millions of years BUT if this story ruins Michelle 0bama´s day, that makes me happy

In Maurituius there is a restaurant by top Georgetown chef that grows and serves Maine lobster.
Lobster will move or be moved.
Somehow - I think this is more alarmism - Michelle will make it her signature achievement .

"Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets"......Perhaps all that hot air from the liberals up there is driving the fish to the Gulf?

Hmmmm - - AP story. The byline says it´s by "Staff" - - but I smell Seth Borenstein.

S´matter, Seth? A-scared to put your name on these glo-bull warming alarmist stories now?

Can´t blame you - - they just don´t have the old zip that they used to. Lobsters? Sheesh! That´s a real stretch.. Better luck next time.

What the heck is this rising sea lie they repeat? Of course story says the warming increases the lobsters population resulting in low prices. By knowing that they lie all the time my guess is the increased or over fishing has increased the numbers being sold resulting in the low prices and fewer numbers to count.

The sea level has risen so far so fast that an entire bay cano longer be reached? it is apparently just, well gone or all the approaches flooded to such a depth that it can no longer be approached by land, or boat apparently.

The rate of temperature since 2004 has increasd to 0.5 degrees a year and is expected to rise a full 4 degrees over the next 85 years? Math is obviously not taught in journalism school anymore.

Warmer water increases Lobster yields but the long Island sound fishery is largely unchanged?

Puffins are dying because the warm water has resulted I a huge number of (yummy to a puffin) squid moving in?

For 50 years we have been pounded by NOAA about fisheries collapse on the great banks due to over fishing, Canada has banned Cod fishing for years, all the fishermen switched to Menhadden (for fertilizer and pet food) and the old standby, scalloping as quotas are slashed again and again but now AL of the collapse is due to Global Warming and commercial fishing is not even worth a mention?

What a crock of fearmongering. Give it up already.

The fact of the matter is that the lobster season in Maine got off to a slow start due to the fact that soft shell lobsters, known as "shedders" were late due to unusally cold waters here. Thankfully they migrated inshore in time for the Lobster Festival in Rockland Maine.

What garbage. What level of hubris is it that makes some pseudo scientist an ´expert´ on such matters? Who was it that decided that the Earth´s climate should NEVER change? Does Diane Cowan have an explanation for the fact that the area she´s researching was once covered by an ice sheet that was miles thick? Where did that ice go, Diane, and when? Was it dinosaurs driving SUVs and exhausting too much CO2?

By the way, I was in Maine 2 weeks ago, and went swimming at a state park.
The water temp was FIFTY FOUR (54) degrees Fahrenheit. I asked a life guard how/ where they take the temperatures: "about waist deep, at about noontime."

Warmer seas are actually good news. The lobsters will already be boiled when plucked from the water, which reduces usage of fossil fuels to cook them.

From AP, NOAA, and NGOs.

And it could even be true but that isn´t the way to bet.

Government agencies, such as NOAA, always find what they most wish to find, reasons for more funding and power. And AP dutifully informs the public.

Every place is Ground Zero for Climate Change and the outlook at each place on Earth is worse than at all other places.

It is about time for Rover to find new evidence of life on Mars. Or that there was once life there. Or (choose your own).

Ever get the sense that the middle class is downwardly mobile, being pressed to the floor and squeezed to the limit? It’s not happening by accident. Someone is doing the squeezing: a new class of entertainment and tech plutocrats, cheered on and abetted by a priesthood of media, government and academic elites.(snip) This New Class, for instance, venerates the city and despises suburbia. They think you should feel the same way — and in innumerable magazine and newspaper pieces, they twist facts to make it sound as if America loves living in apartments and taking trains to work.

The United States informed Iran in advance of its intention to strike Islamic State militants in Syria and told Tehran that it would not target the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a senior Iranian official told Reuters.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said those pushing for her to retire are “misguided,” arguing that President Obama could not appoint a similar replacement to the bench in an interview published Tuesday. Ginsburg, at 81, is the oldest member of the Court. Some on the left have suggested that she might retire while Obama is in office, to guarantee that a Democratic president could appoint her successor. Ginsburg has said before that she is "likely to remain for a while," but offered insight on her reasoning in an interview with Elle magazine. "[A]nybody who thinks that if I step

Hundreds of environmentalists plan to "shut down" the New York Stock Exchange later Tuesday to protest the relationship between global warming and Big Business. Scores of protesters had already gathered in lower Manhattan early Tuesday for an event dubbed #FloodWallStreet. They planned to march a few blocks north to Wall Street and stage a "sit-in" until forced to leave. Their beef: the fossil fuels industry and other companies are profiting at the expense of the environment. The activists said they were willing to be arrested to drive home the link between global capitalism and worsening climate change.

Obama tries Reagan touch

President Barack Obama, stumping for the Democrats ahead of November´s congressional elections, has twice invoked Ronald Reagan´s seminal campaign question: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" Framing the debate like that helped Reagan twice - in 1980 when he beat incumbent Jimmy Carter, and then again in 1984 when he won re-election during an economic upswing. But a similar message has failed to resonate for Obama primarily for one reason: while he stresses the economy has improved in almost every aspect on his watch, average family incomes have slipped. Between 2009 when Obama took office

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
