Supersize me

The Washington Post reports on yummy consequences of growing carbon emissions.
It is the dawn of the super crab.

Crabs are bulking up on carbon pollution that pours out of power plants, factories and vehicles and settles in the oceans, turning the tough crustaceans into even more fearsome predators.

Yummier still...
The problem extends beyond crabs and the Chesapeake Bay. Lobsters and shrimp are also bulking up on carbon dioxide along the Atlantic coast.
The downside is that carbon hurts the development of oysters and coral.
