Global Warming Causing Seas to Become Less Salty

Scientists have discovered that the oceans are becoming less salty. This is due to the large amounts of fresh water being dumped into the ocean because of global warming. The effect a less salty sea will have on marine life and weather patterns is unknown at this time, but there will doubtlessly be some potentially serious effects.

While I think it is unwise to be alarmist about global warming, I also think it's unwise to ignore the massive amount of scientific evidence that yes, in fact, our planet is heating up. This might be a natural occurring warming trend. But it might not. Given how many pollutants we've pumped into our air over the last century, I find it hard to believe they've had no effect.

Global warming is an issue we'll all have to give more attention to in the near future.

Have you noticed how hard Sen. McCain has been riding global warming lately? He has really become an advocate of taking action.
