Global Phytoplankton in Massive Decline

Microscopic marine algae called phytoplankton that produce half the world’s oxygen and support most ocean life have declined roughly 40 per cent in the northern hemisphere since 1950.EVERYTHING that eats ANYTHING exists because of phytoplankton in the global ocean. They are THE BASE LIFE OF ALL LIFE. Half of all organic matter on our planet. The primary absorbers of CO2 (heat-trapping gas) from the atmosphere. Phytoplankton create every 2nd breath of oxygen we breathe.
