Global Warming: Another impediment to restoration efforts?

Bigger dead zones in the Chesapeake Bay. Weed-infested forests. Sick fish.

This is scientist Roger Mann's vision of a Virginia afflicted by global warming. Stressed, dying trees. Forest fires. Diseased oysters.

The list goes on.

"I think it could be quite a big deal," Mann said from his office at Gloucester Point.

Mann, research director at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, addressed a U.S. Senate panel last week on global warming's potential effects on the state's wildlife and plants. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
