3 million fish suffocates due to Drought in Columbia
1320 tons of dead tilapia have suffocated in a southern Columbian reservoir in a recent four month drought. This equates to approximately 3 million fish that didn’t have enough oxygen to breath due to a drought that has caused the water levels in the reservoir to shrink drastically. The levels of water have decreased by 86 feet in recent months. The local fish industry has lost an estimated $2 million worth of exports to the US and Europe. This is just another classic example of how climate change is affecting people in different parts of the world.
Just as predicted the “side effects” of climate change can be seen through examples like this. Al Gore and the rest of the scientific community are right on when they say to expect tragedies such as wide spread drought, and more severe storms.
