The article presents a reprint of the article "Warming Reducing Ocean Life, Increasing Carbon Dioxide," which appeared in the January 2007 issue of "Sea Technology." There were new data showing reduction of ocean life due to the warming of the sea which contributes to the increase of global warming. The phytoplankton are predicted to grow slower in the warmer oceans affecting the availability of foods for the marine organisms like marine birds, fishes and mammals.
