google "what to make of warming plateau nyt one citizen speaking". It offers a great response to this lame article!

Its the same lame stuff that is answered 1000 times already. Science cannot tell you that it will rain in New York Jan 20 2020. What it can say however is. In a hundred years New York will experience floods, and extreme weather that will put the city's resources under untold stress. Add the global warming factor in and that 100 yrs suddenly drops to 10 or maybe even 5 and the frequency will always increase as long as we keep pumping Co2 into the atmosphere at alarming levels. That is your answer and that is what is happening right now, it is just up to you to decide where in the sliding scale you want to be? Once in a hundred, or welcome it as an annual event.

Thankyou, someone in Germany agrees after all they had floods 2002 , 2010, 2011 & now 2013. To the deniers all part of the natural cycle yet the increasing frequency means nothing.

yeah, and you have the study that shows it's all due to man made co2, right, pigeon?

What is not obvious to you & your clan, this is the ONLY thing we can control to have influence on extreme weather yet YOU want to make the choice NOT TO EVEN TRY. What sort of smart minded person would make that choice ? Its the same as driving the car heading for a cliff and not wanting to apply the brakes because you are convinced you are going over anyway. That's your logic.

lol....is that what you think, son?

just show me the study indicating that co2 mitigation will influence climate one way or the other. i've read a bunch of studies......some having merit.....but have yet to come across one making a claim with quantifiable meaning, and absent a slew of 'could, may, might, possibly'.

the problem with your crowd is that you put full faith in something that hasn't even been understood as of yet. what's really whacked out is then you claim that you have the solution. talk about taking a leap of faith over a cliff!!

translation: you haven't seen a study or evidence that co2 mitigation will actually alter climate either.

Study: Ocean Acidification Killing Oysters by Inhibiting Shell Formation

[1] Acidified waters are impacting commercial oyster production in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, and favorable carbonate chemistry conditions are predicted to become less frequent. Within 48&#8201;h of fertilization, unshelled Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) larvae precipitate roughly 90% of their body weight as calcium carbonate. We measured stable carbon isotopes in larval shell and tissue and in algal food and seawater dissolved inorganic carbon in a longitudinal study of larval development and growth. Using these data and measured biochemical composition of larvae, we show that sensitivity of initial shell formation to ocean acidification results from diminished ability to isolate calcifying fluid from surrounding seawater, a limited energy budget and a strong kinetic demand for calcium carbonate precipitation. Our results highlight an important link between organism physiology and mineral kinetics in larval bivalves and suggest the consideration of mineral kinetics may improve understanding winners and losers in a high CO2 world.[absract]

Acidification, or ph crash, is a pretty common occurrence......especially where marine life is densely populated such as hatcheries. The good news is that you can buffer the water as the article suggests. It's always worked in my koi pools, reef tanks, and fresh water aquaria.

Nothing about man made co2 in the article....or did you not notice yet automatically jump to conclusions and make connections? That kind of pseudo-science analysis really doesn't help your side of the debate.

Sounds like they've learned a lot from the calamity. I hope you've learned a little, too!:-)

First of all, it is pH.

Second, you make no sense whatso ever about ocean acidification caused by man-made CO2 emissions.

Go home. Desert the bs.

Did you see that?! Denier scum rants because science hasn't claimed certainty. Then ...

Denier scum rants because science is so damn certain!

Denier scum need to get their talking points straight. LOL
