Global warming: New study tries to pin down the effects of ocean acidification on shellfish

There are 18 comments on the Summit County Voice story from Aug 6, 2012, titled Global warming: New study tries to pin down the effects of ocean acidification on shellfish. In it, Summit County Voice reports that:

The effects of ocean acidification on shellfish are widespread around the globe and may be the most pronounced at high latitudes with low water temperatures, according to new research that examined a wide range of species from the tropics to the Arctic.

Interesting study.

Most shellfish species have probably survived previous periods of acidification so I wouldn't be surprised if the population had recessive genes adapted to build shells in higher Ph levels.

The failure of oyster hatcheries would be due to the 'weeding out' of the unfit not being present in hatchery dynamics.

First time to hear this point,interesting.Before this,I thought only human beings' activities affect global warming.

You speculate and bs here.

It's pH, get it?

It took a while, but my guess is that FuGyou eventually realised that his allies were worse opponents than his adversaries here at Topix.
Bozo appears to be the last man sitting, probably due to an infection.

Who are you, dirtie? Certainly not the last man standing!

Your lies evaporate before you publish them. LOL.

The issue is adaptability of species and I have a certain amount of general background that seems to support the case. In fact, the article itself, which points to adaptations ALREADY occurring.

Sometimes your single minded negativity gets a bit out of hand. Most things are not as bad as 'forecast' in the absence of full data, even if not desirable. The issue really is that we don't NEED to suffer those undesirable consequences if we do a better job of balancing sustainable economics over special interests.

Hay dirtling it appears that you constantly forget to take yours. Do you have anything besides useless babble?

Read the article again and again until you realize the recurring theme:

“If there is time for species to evolve in temperate and tropical regions it is one way they may be able to overcome some of the future effects of ocean acidification.”

Noticing that you're feeding feeble material to the masses is a helpful thing.

It's always pH!

Hey, dirtie, this looks like gossip.

LOL. So you corrected yourself elsewhere that it's Professor James Hansen. I was right, of course.

What is "neve?"

When he's at Columbia Uni as an adjunct professor, yes, but he can never be addressed as "Professor Dr. James Hansen" anywhere.

He's always called Professor because he has earned it just like his PhD. None of them are honorary for him.

Yes, one can refer to him as Prof Dr anywhere on this planet in any language.

Deniers aka losers without borders also want to deny scientists their earned titles, etc.

What if I provided you with a list of 100 web pages where he's referred to only as James Hansen?

I see, so it will be easy for you to link to one "reliable" web page where he's addressed as such?

Here's one [unreliable] where he is, and you'll enjoy reading about his exploits there:

The climatologist’s Uberfuhrer, NASA’s Prof Dr James Hansen, has recently posted a detailed repudiation and confession of this horrific fraud on a mainstream elitist Global Warming extremist interblog (that is so horrific I only recommend you visit after deep prayerful reflection).

In fact, you don’t need to read any of it because I can summarize the content readily: In it, Prof Dr James Hansen assumes all responsibility for the data-manipulation behavior of the entire climatological community. He also confesses that he and his colleagues have in the past, and continue to make serious errors not only in data management, but also analysis and judgment! He begs the Forgiveness of a Loving and All Powerful God who in all likelihood has no interest whatsoever in granting a whiff of mercy to these frauds and hucksters.

Never mind 100, here's around 1,760,000 web pages where he's referred to 'only' as James Hansen:

WRONG. AGAIN:

He's always[meaning anytime, not just when he's at CU] called Professor because he has earned it just like his PhD. None of them are honorary[learn about this] for him.

Yes, one can refer to him as Prof Dr anywhere on this planet in any language.[As they do for others.]

Deniers aka losers without borders[inclusive of dirtie] also want to deny scientists their earned titles, etc.

As atmospheric CO2 levels rise due to human activities, more of the gas dissolves in the oceans, increasing their acidity. The effect of these seawater changes on marine organisms is largely unknown. We examine the consequences of higher CO2 levels on the production by plankton of dimethyl sulfide, a climatically active gas. We find that higher CO2 levels leads to lower concentrations of dimethyl sulfide in the seawater, which has potentially important implications for the future climate.
