Is it true that climate change is causing lobsters to grow bigger than usual?

    Lobsters, crabs, and shrimp are actually getting larger in response to rising CO2 levels. These crustaceans take carbon from the water and use it to build their exoskeletons.  While this sounds nice for those seafood lovers out there, there is a big problem. The prey of lobsters, like clams and other smaller species are likely to die off with increasing ocean acidification. This will leave these giant lobsters with no food to eat.
