Recently, I [Ken Buesseler, Dr. Ken Buesseler is a marine radiochemist with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and director of the WHOI Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity] have begun to see a much more serious threat to U.S. waters. With our nearly 100 reactors, many on the coast or near inland waterways that drain to the ocean, you might expect a federal agency to be responsible for supporting research to improve our understanding of how radioactive contamination originating from one of these sites would affect our marine resources. Instead, the response we receive from an alphabet-soup of federal agencies is that such work “is in the national interest,” but ultimately “not our job.” As a result, we have turned to crowd funding to help us build data along the West Coast to address immediate public concerns and to keep a watchful eye out to sea.

Yep, change in climate has caused mass extinctions throughout the aeons. Humans are going to have to learn to adapt to the changing climate. Hopefully adapting doesn't meaning taxing the pants off the hard working middle class, and stuffing the pockets of the well connected "green" profiteers and politicians.
So long as you don't have to pay your fair share... so long to the oceans. Without life in the oceans, how long do you think life elsewhere can sustain?
So from your assessment and what these experts are saying, you feel there is no need to sound the alarms for "large-scale marine die offs" in the near future?
