WASHINGTON (AP) Greenhouse gases are making the world's oceans hot, sour and breathless, and the way those changes work together is creating a grimmer outlook for global waters, according to a new report Wednesday from 540 international scientists.

The world's oceans are getting more acidic at an unprecedented rate, faster than at any time in the past 300 million years, the report said. But it's how this interacts with other global warming impacts to waters that scientists say is getting them even more worried.

Scientists already had calculated how the oceans had become 26 percent more acidic since the 1880s because of the increased carbon in the water. They also previously had measured how the world's oceans had warmed because of carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas. And they've observed that at different depths the oceans were moving less oxygen around because of the increased heat.

But together "they actually amplify each other," said report co-author Ulf Riebesell, a biochemist at the Geomar Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research in Germany. He said scientists are increasingly referring to the ocean's future prospects as "hot, sour and breathless."

The 26-page report released by the United Nations and several scientific research organizations brings together the latest ocean science on climate change, stemming from a major conference of ocean scientists last year.

Scientists Confirm World's Oldest Creature...But Kill it Determining Its Age
by JON DAVID KAHN 14 Nov 2013, 6:09 AM PDT
In 2006, climate change experts from Bangor University in north Wales found a very special clam while dredging the seabeds of Iceland. At that time scientists counted the rings on the inside shell to determine that the clam was the ripe old age of 405. Unfortunately, by opening the clam which scientists refer to as "Ming," they killed it instantly....

"Experts" did a similar thing around the same time when they cut down a bristle cone pine and upon counting the rings discovered it was the oldest life form yet discovered... oddly enough the report made me sad

The seas are rising, they've been rising for billions of years. What lasts longer, the ocean or the mountain?

Stability lies in motion, not turning back our CO2 output but pressing forward. Emit more CO2 because emitting CO2 is fun and profitable.

Three fifths of a mile, that's a kilometer.
So 8 kilometers would be more like 5 miles.
Wow, a new way to launch into space!

I've noted before that warmists love authority figures. It's one of their first tactics to refute arguments -- attack the credentials. Then they trot out some more credentialed folks just to 'prove' their smarter.

skepticalscience used to have a 'debunkers' guide where one of the first steps was to attack credentials. The upped the ante on that recently when they went out and found some 'credentialed' psychologists to explain why folks don't believe the 'science' of their first set of credentials.

Gee... if only they can get God on the bandwagon -- that'll be the trump card no one will be able to top.

But that would be just too obvious that their talking religion. They prefer the 'credentials' of their belief in their "science".

A thinking person would see through that phony logic. The devoted, however, just see it as "science".
