Oh noes! Models say that climate change, ENSO, and beach sand heat will kill sea turtles | Watts Up With That?

From the busy BEES at Drexel University, worry that beach sand temperature 40 to 50 centimeters deep will be affected by the global warming air temperature rise of 0.8C over the last century, projected to increase. The models identified this as the leading projected cause of climate-related decline in leatherback turtles. They say “if actual climate patterns follow projections in the study, the eastern Pacific population of leatherback turtles will decline by 75 percent by the year 2100.” Gosh.
