Don’t mess with my blue crabs!

Here in Virginia, we have a state Commission on Climate Change that includes 43 members who were appointed by Gov. Tim Kaine about nine months ago.

Recently the Commission met and reached consensus that:

A rising sea level caused by global warming poses a major concern for much of coastal Virginia, especially the heavily populated (and traffic congested) Hampton Roads area.

Warming would have significant impact on Virginia’s ecosystems.

Some Chesapeake Bay species such as blue crabs and oysters could decline or disappear.

I don’t know about you, but when you start messing with my seafood, that’s when I get mad!

The state commission is expected to make its recommendations on December 15th.  In the meantime, check out some tips on what you can do about Global Warming.
