Ocean Acidification – the other big CO2 problem

from oceanacidification.net

Ocean Acidification is not a peripheral climate issue, it is the other CO2 challenge. The world’s leading marine scientists are warning us that our current rates of carbon emissions are making our oceans more acidic. This is happening so fast that it poses a serious threat to biodiversity and marine life.

Left unchecked, Ocean Acidification could destroy all our coral reefs by as early as 2050. It also has the potential to disrupt other ocean ecosystems, fisheries, habitats, and even entire oceanic food chains.

  1. In-depth studies, carried out over the last 45 seconds, confirm there is a direct link between the climate and politics.
    Both climate and politics change over time !! A fact confirmed in the afore mentioned in-depth study.
    “Man” is the main cause of all political change, therefore “Man” is the main cause of climate change.
    The climate is seen as a problem if a particular political party is in power, whereas there is no problem at all to be see with the climate if the opposite party is at the helm.
    So, the simplest way to solve any climate problems is to keep that party “who see no problems”, in power.
    Not only will this save the Earth from certain destruction, it will save a lot of money in the national budget as there’ll be no need for climate science committees, reports, analysis, action etc.

    Prior to the 45 second in-depth study, a cartoon was created, which may, or may not, conflict with the theme of the above summary.

    That climate change cartoon is here . . . . . . . .

      This is the same comment you made on one of the other posts. If you like, I am happy to chuck your site onto my blogroll because I like your cartoons. This will save you from having to cut and paste all the time.

  2. Thanks, that would be appreciated. And thanks also for the complement.
    I’m so anti those who would wreck our environment for our kids, that I post wherever I can on the topic. I try not to duplicate on websites but sometimes lose track.
