Lobstering has disappeared from Long Island Sound, and now, reports the Boston Globe, it’s gone from anywhere south of Cape Cod as the oceans warm and lobsters die off or move.
This is no surprise – here’s a 2015 story from the N.Y. Post after the decline in Long Island lobstering – but it’s still shocking. To think that we puny humans can change the entire ocean to such an extent. The entire ocean!!! It would be impressive if it wasn’t so freakin’ appalling.
