BRUSSELS (AP) Warning: The warming of the world's oceans can cause serious illness and may cost millions of euros (dollars) in health care.
That is the alarm sounded in a paper released online Tuesday on the eve of a two-day conference in Brussels.
The 200-page paper is a synthesis of the findings of more than 100 projects funded by the European Union since 1998. It was produced by Project CLAMER, a collaboration of 17 European marine institutes.
The paper says the rising temperature of ocean water is causing a proliferation of the Vibrio genus of bacteria, which can cause food poisoning, serious gastroenteritis, septicemia and cholera.
"Millions of euros in health costs may result from human consumption of contaminated seafood, ingestion of waterborne pathogens, and, to a lesser degree, though direct occupational or recreational exposure to marine disease," says the paper. "Climatic conditions are playing an increasingly important role in the transmission of these diseases."

no relation to a Leftist media’s ‘Project Clymer’..
Climate Change and European Marine Ecosystem Research.
CLAMER is funded under the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme.
Seems that the only thing spreading is bullcrap....
Wait, I thought I just read something about another La Nina heading our way. Isn’t that supposed to be the result of cooling oceans?
Oh noes.... we are all going to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Notice how all these stories are coming out before Al Gore’s big 24 hours of gorebull warming? They neglected to tell everyone that it will just be a one hour recording played over and over.
They should protect bacteria, they are very small. Humans are bad for earth.
No change then, the ocean already costs millions of euros (dollars) in Healthcare.
I will sleep easy tonight.
I am skeered Algore. Halp me.
We can look at a trend, but that too is confusing. The oceans have some very long cyclical trends, around 800 years, and we've only had modern measurement systems very recently. So, we're stuck with looking at a tiny data window and trying to paste it on horrendously long-term trends that we don't know. Certainly one 800-year trend isn't statistically enough either.
In short, anyone who talks about sea temperatures, ice melting, and especially sea level rises, is full of kelp. These numbers cannot be pinned down and ultimately are what anyone wants them to be.
Yes indeed! Cabbage Patch Gore is making a run at cheap publicity. I made it abundantly clear on my FaceBook page that anyone that has donated their page to Gore for the 24 hour period will be relegated to the wastebin of history - for being ignorant.
Key words: Yahoo, AP.
Warmer oceans? Has La Nina been cancelled? Good...we could use a little “climate change” here in Texas.
Oh Kaaaay. So don't drink seawater.
Cook the dang sushi!
Vibrio is the cause of seafood born food poisoning or sickness from contaminated water. It is related to Cholera. It’s not new or special.
This is fear mongering.
Vibrio vulnificus outbreaks commonly occur in warm climates and small, generally lethal, outbreaks occur regularly. An outbreak occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina  and several lethal cases occur most years in Florida.
Is Solyndra behind this?
If you want to argue science give me water temps, colonies per ml, local environment, pollution sources, public water supply conditions, etc, etc, etc.
The article is political advocacy and not science. If you want science follow this link. It is long and complex but it is real science and not CRAP!
So keep writing those big checks to us climate scientists or suffer the consequences.
Well, when truth doesn’t work, try extortion.
” - - - Philippart said some of the effects could even themselves contribute to global warming.
The greater acidification of the ocean might mean that algae would be able to capture less carbon dioxide, she said. “Then there will be a further increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, leading to greater warming.” - - - “
This is a classic example of junk scientists not bothering to use The Scientific Method.
1.) Notice the word “might” (implying doubt) in the third line above.
2.) Notice in the 4 th line that doubt has been replaced by the implied certainty phrase: “Then there will be.”
3.) Then comes the money statement “ - - - leading to global warming. “
Grants are renewed! Hail to Junk Science! Long live the speculation leap from doubt to certainty!
The Enviroweenies are looking for another scam to sell Global Warming to the ignorant masses.
See post 21, we are on the same page.
Nothing to worry about. Fukushima Radiation will kill it.
I smell Liberal panic.
100% CORRECT! Due to the prevailing winds from the South West, most of the rain in Texas is a function of water and air temps in the Pacific Ocean. The coastal regions of Texas do get rain as a function of the Gulf of Mexico. However Texas as a whole is dependent on Pacific Moisture.
La Nina has cooled the Pacific. A result of this is less moisture in the airflow from the prevailing winds in Texas. Less moisture means less rain and less cloud cover. Less cloud cover means very high day time temperatures and moderately higher night time temps dependent on the normal local cloud cover. If the local cloud cover in normal conditions is high, La Nina could actually cause night time temps to be moderately lower instead of higher.
When we have El Nino (high temps in the Pacific) life is good in Texas. When we have La Nina (low temps in the Pacific) the weather in Texas sucks. The weather pattern that caused the "Dust Bowl" was several years of La Nina. I hope we are not repeating this.
Therefore we must immediately spend trillions of dollars to reduce CO2 output and send us all back to the stone age with highly priced energy only a few apparatchiks can afford. Government can simply pass some laws forbidding any resultant disease outbreaks. Maybe it can incarcerate the bacteria and viruses that break the new laws.
ALL: Go to post # 21 and read the article in the hot link.
It is a peer-reviewed article, and uses most parts of The Scientific Method.
Then read the junk science article, AND SEPARATE FACTS FROM OPINIONS ! If you just read the facts, junk science articles are a fast read.
cpdiii: Thanks for the hot link that “keeps everything turning to the right.”
Seed the oceans with ice cubes and chlorinate the water. Problem solved.
All findings are subject: "Have you personally, or your research, or anyone on your team ever been subsidized by a group that promotes the fairy tale of AGW?"
If so, how do you expect to be considered credible?
My primary comment however, is: "You aren't truly considered a scientist when it's obvious you performed your research in a meth lab..."
If you organize a Committee to Find Trolls, guess what they will find.
