 Very nicely put.

 I'm slightly less optimistic (not that you came across that way)
 about the oceans.  AFAIK they're in some serious strife - the various
 nursery environments are going to be wiped out by temperature and
 level rises.  That is, a few degrees rise will destroy most reefs, and
 mangrove swamps are going to have trouble migrating up shore fast
 enough (assuming there's anywhere for them to move to).  In any case,
 the knock on effects of taking out these nursery environments, along
 with the other myriad of known and yet-to-surprise-us effects from
 temperature changes, may see the entire food chain break down .. at 
 least across large tracts.

 Jedd.
