"So much. Jack McCallum is national correspondent for the L A Times. Mm. Record heat waves that swept the Western U. S and Canada over the last few weeks also killed off marine life. A billion sea creatures along the Pacific coast may have died in just the last two weeks. Yes, that's billion with a B. They were essentially cooked to death by triple digit temperatures, not at all common along the coast, especially up in the Pacific Northwest. Scientists say these mass die offs could become more common, and one such scientist is Christopher Harley. He's a marine biologist at the University of British Columbia, who studies the effects of climate change on coastal marine ecosystems. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Well, you are up there in Canada and you took a walk along the shoreline in Vancouver. And what did you see? Well, The first thing I noticed before I saw anything was the smell, which was not a good sign that things had gone well during the very hot weather. And the second thing I noticed was the shoreline crunched when I walked on it, which is not normal, and that's because I was walking over. Dedge muscle after dead muscle in dense beds, and, uh, the Diack was was pretty astonishing. Oh, wow. Astonishing Even for you who studies this? Yes, and I have seen a few heatwaves before and they have killed some things on the shore. But this was far above and beyond everything I had ever seen before. So these animals that the muscles this, uh, starfish, the sea stars, the crabs were they exposed by the receding tide, Or were they actually in water and the water was too hot for them. They the ones that suffered the most were exposed by the tide, and it was just a terrible coincidence for them that the hottest weather Happened at the same time as some very low tides that we're right in the middle of the day. So it was sort of a worst case scenario if you're trying to avoid getting too hot and year, estimating that A billion of them died. The more places I go and collect data, the higher I think that estimate should be. I am certain that a billion is conservative. On one shore in an area about the size of a tennis court alone. There were about a million dead muscles in a similar area. You can sit even more dead barnacles and once you start adding all those species together. And thinking about how many tennis courts worth of coastline we have in Washington and British Columbia. The numbers become pretty staggering. Right. How far down the coast do you think it goes? I have gotten reports from as far south as Hood Canal and Puget Sound in Washington and as far north as the central coast up on British Columbia. It happily, seems like some of the outer Coast may have been spared where it's a little bit cooler, and the tides were early in the morning, so the effects seem to have been worst in the sort of the inland waters of Puget Sound in the Strait of Georgia. And so let's focus on one in particular one group of animals in particular the muscles a big die off. As you say, your foot you were crunching on mussel shells. So there are animals who served who rely on the muscles to live right who eat these muscles. So what does this mean for them? Yeah, well, the starfish or one of the things that tied coolers like to go out and see and they eat an awful lot of muscles so they'll have to wait for the populations to recover to get that food source back, but lucky for them. They can go for months without eating if they really need to, But I'm worried about other things. Like some of the migratory seabirds. There's a species of sea dot called the surface cutter that relies on muscles in the winter when they come down to the Vancouver area before flying back to the Arctic to breathe. And I don't know how many muscles they need, but they will have fewer when they arrived this winter. And then I imagine also, you know, people survive off these. They have livelihoods. Farming these for food. So what is the effect for that economically? Yes, there's there's some wild harvest, and there's a lot of, uh, aquaculture shellfish farms. And if you're a muscle fan, um the good news is those are grown on lines that hang down in water all the time. And those those were probably okay. But if you are a fan of clams or oysters, a lot of those are actually grown on beaches that are exposed at low tides. And I have seen and heard about some oysters that have died on beaches and people in Washington, in particular, are worried about their clams because a lot of clams died during the heat wave as well. This is the first heat wave of this magnitude, but there will likely be more right and more die offs. Yeah, And that's that's the scary thing. This would have been a once in a 1000 year event is the estimate I've heard. But it might become a once in five year event, and it will take a while for the system to recover, and if there's enough time if this was a one off the system would eventually bounced back. But If we start hitting it so often that it can't recover. We're just gonna start losing. Some of the species were used to seeing they'll have to either live further north or not, or they'll go extinct. I don't know. So the diversity is definitely changing. Northern shores are going to start looking more like Southern shores. We'll see big ecological changes. So if northern shores start looking like southern shores, what do southern shores look like? Uh, well, well, I've I've worked in California. I worked in Washington. I've worked in British Columbia and the further North you go. The higher the diversity is, And that's partly because it doesn't get so hot that it kills things. So I'm worried that British Columbia will start to look like some weird combination of Southern California, northwestern Mexico and Asia because the species that are doing well here during the heatwave are a lot of the ones that have been introduced to us from southern Japan or China. Like what? Jellyfish? We have oysters that do a lot better than the muscles. I mean, even though some oysters died, they were they were hardier. There is a non native CNN money that one of my students are studying, and they seem to be fine..

It is not just cherry trees that climate change is confusing however but also the poets who write paeans to them seasons have long occupied a prominent place in japanese literature. Cocaine were cashew. A poetry anthology published in the tenth century opens with six chapters of seasonal poems. Basho popularized hikers in the seventeenth century tended to include in his poems keigo or seasonal words to anchor them tim poorly and thus evoke a certain emotional state. Over the centuries poets compiled knocks of keigo categorizing most natural and even some human phenomena by season or even by particular months but as the climate warms and whether becomes more extreme keigo are slipping from their seasonal moorings. This season creep makes it harder for contemporary readers to understand. Traditional haiku says david mcmurray who teaches the form at the international university of kogoshima.

"Concern in japan is that they are going to continue to do this and there is no particular way to stop them so what's the overall message that should be interpreted from the north koreans then they they did have the ability to launch these missiles high and they dip in the ocean now they're making them go over japan what are they saying they're saying that they are going to ignore japanese concerns and simply test missiles to their heart's content where and when it suits them so was there any new technology involved in this launch or is the difference here so what are the messaging and the provocation of of launching it over japan i think what what is new is going over japan now they did kick a roof debt minimized the populated areas it flew over this is less aggressive than what they threatened in mid august which was four missiles to be shot into the vicinity of guam that would've had to pass over some heavy heavily populated areas in southern japan but instead dead disease h chose a single missile uh over a thinly populated area to the north and i don't want to suggest that this is the detente but if it is less provocative than they threatened and less provocative than they were capable of doing what message does that send deep suggests that they prefer to proceed in a step by step manner uh probably so the rest of the world gets used to what they are doing and does not react to strongly to any single step if they had done too much uh i think it it might have united the chinese with the americans and their allies and really uh put them at risk of severe response instead there being more cautious this choice of action may have been connected to american actions or inactions if you like since this threat to test around guam was linked to.
