This is absolutely correct.

I'm sick of people claiming that climate change is a myth just because they, personally, cannot see or feel any differences.

I was in Thailand last year, and went snorkelling at a coral reef. The whole thing was just dead, bleached, white-yellow in colour, with a just handful of colourful fish and very large spiky sea urchins around the place. It was still fun and was 'worth it', to my European non-tropical self, but it was clearly, clearly nothing like it used to be.

The place I was swimming was a hot destination for tourists; an island with boat trips going daily from the mainland. For it to have become such a hot-spot, it must have once been beautiful. The only thing beautiful about it now is the island scenery and tropical blue waters. The sealife exists but it's clearly died out massively.

Climate change is real and it's killing the planet. The ocean will be the first thing to get worse, because most of the planet's temperature is stored in the seas. So of course coral reefs are hit first. It's all bloody awful really.

Good, that means they can't eat each other alive anymore.

The climate is always changing regardless of humans and 99% of animals can't keep up with change. It's called natural selection. From that 1% we get a fountain of new diversity and then 99% of those die again. Repeat ad infinitum. It's called life. If it didn't exist we'd still be single cellular organism if even that. Your body is built upon a pillar of endless sea of animal blood and suffering, of endless trial and errors. It's the embodiment of densely concentrated wisdom. Take off the rose tinted glasses, nature is red in tooth and claw.
