You got it, Me Boyo. This just the beginning, because if the water at the bottom of the North Sea is to warm for the crabs then that means that
warm water is present through out the water column. That will stop the current flowing south, pulled by cold water, to be pumped north by the Gulf
Stream after it has been warmed by the sun at the Equator. This warm water is what moderates the weather. This will definitely change the weather in
Europe and the northeastern United States. Another possibility for the killing is that the amount of fresh water spilling into the oceans from
Greenland has diluted the salt water and turned it into fresh water so much that the crabs could not tolerate it. Either scenerio predicts dire
consequences for the northern hemisphere.
