While we’re nowhere near the Atlantic hurricane season yet-that runs from June 1 through the autumn-keep in mind that cyclones feed on warm ocean water, which could well stay anomalously hot in the coming months. For the seas, it really is: Unlike land, which rapidly heats and cools as day turns to night and back again, it takes a lot to warm up an ocean that may be thousands of feet deep. If temperatures get too high, certain species might suffer, shaking the foundations of the ocean food web.
