’The blob’ is believed to have mass murdered a million birds at sea

A 6 degree Celsius spike across a massive patch of ocean water east of New Zealand is likely to have been caused by an ’anti-cyclone’ weather system, a leading scientist says. Satellite images show an angry looking 386,000 sq. mile red patch. James Renwick, University scientist in Wellington said : ’Sea temperatures don’t actually vary too much, and a degree, plus or minus, is quite a big deal.’

I call bullshit. 2-7 degree temp increase would not kill fish unless it happened instantly. I do think climate changes in cycles, but this is not the cause. No disrespect to the birds. They probably migrate on certain paths and this species is probably just not smart enough to adapt to changes.

"Murdered" is a wrong word here. Check the dictionary near you.

How would a raise of 7 degrees kill millions of birds? It’s not like they don’t experience twice that difference when flying in different weather conditions.
