Dying Plankton Means Dying Planet

Scientists report that the basic food of sea life, popularly known as plankton,  initiates the cycle of existence for all sea life and is rapidly disappearing.  Actually, plankton, scientifically known as phytoplankton, helps to uphold all the earth, including human beings who assume earth to be their own.   As researcher Boris Worm explains:   “Phytoplankton are a critical part of our planetary life support system. They produce half of the oxygen we breathe, draw down surface carbon dioxide and ultimately support all our fisheries.”
 Of course, Global Warming is the great contributor to the decline of plankton.  And viral infections from massive human wastes polluting the seas also contributes to plankton’s demise.  Canada’s Daily Mail reports that phytoplankton is “the fuel on which marine ecosystem runs.”  Moreover, the blog, Climate insists that 40% of all ocean plankton has been destroyed since 1950.

 However, it is time for people to understand that phytoplankton not only serves the human population by producing oxygen, but also by removing harmful carbon dioxide from the air and by producing half of all organic matter on earth.  Some reports estimate that the end of life, caused by the end of plankton, will come in 2048, but a study in the July edition of the Nature journal suggests that we have much less time than that.

 This blog continuously attempts to link declining phenomena on earth to the coming judgments from God as prophesied in the Bible.  Herein, is the basic problem:  in the last few decades growing populations have treated the earth as if it belongs to people.  When in reality, this earth belongs to God.  Psalms 24: 1 – 2 reads: “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.”  By continuously destroying the seas, human beings are perilously close to destroying the heart of God’s creation.

 Those who are not Christians may not understand these Biblical warnings, but in truth time is running out for leadership around the world to collectively pass laws against: dumping contaminants in ocean waters; overfishing; and the carbon poisoning of Global Warming.  As they consider other (and less important) military, political and economic problems, it is doubtful that such collective leadership will act, although climatologists, ecologists and other scientists are begging for such action,   Thus, we await God’s horrendous judgment.  To learn of His retribution against those leaders, and many of their nations, and against those who would destroy His earth, read the Book of Revelation.  And be sure to go deeper into all Bible prophecies.  Above all, pray that God will give us us more time to change!
