This could be a useful thread.
The question posed is how would changing weather patterns and changes to marine
ecology affect what we use to make decisions about where to sail, when to depart, and what preparation or gear
might be needed.
The problem with past threads is that some folks have interjected their beliefs of what is or is not occurring.
The questions asked by the OP are centered on what to expect if climate change is not managed and the changes that are explained in the scientific world come to fruition.
This question was not whether or not climate change religious or political. Those discussions can be taken to another thread.
It will be very interesting to understand how changing weather patterns will affect forecast
predictions, pilot charts
revisions, economic changes in areas where we cruise
, changes in migratory patterns of marine
life, changes in insect populations that are disease vectors, changes in rainfall patterns that affect freshwater supplies (for those of us without water
If one wants to debate whether or not climate change is occurring or what is causing it, open another thread.
In this thread, stick to the questions posed by the OP and in the context that Climate Change is occurring and is changing according the the analyses of the IPCC and the National Climate Assessment.
