How Climate Change Is Fueling A Rise In Shark Attacks:

Shark attacks are on the rise, and it’s not because the animals are hungrier than usual. Last year there were 59 shark attacks, up from just 31 in 2011, and a new study by Progress in Oceanography indicates climate change is to blame as it’s pushing sharks and other marine species northward. Also, warmer temperatures mean people are more likely to go swimming which creates a potentially fatal combination. The Florida Program for Shark Research says seven people have died from shark attacks since 2005. But all of this shouldn’t leave you scared to go in the ocean. George Burgess, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research explains your chance of experiencing a shark attack has not increased because the human population is increasing faster than the shark population.
