You got caught again like the other science deniers. FYI:<quoted text>i did read it all, dumb dumb!!!
And you have the stupidity to counter by citing the above portion of the article!!!!! LMAO
After all, it's bozos like you demanding to the world that man made co2 is the sole reason for climate change! Lol
Psssst....co2 is a minor trace gas which man is only partly a contributor.
But don't let that sway you from your blind faith, lemming!!
RAPIDLY rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are causing a potential catastrophe in our oceans as they become more acidic, scientists have warned.
Hans Poertner, professor of marine biology at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany, and co-author of a new study of the phenomenon, said:The current rate of change is likely to be more than 10 times faster than it has been in any of the evolutionary crises in the earths history.
Sea water is naturally slightly alkaline, but as oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the air, their pH level falls gradually. Under the rapid escalation of greenhouse gas emissions, ocean acidification is gathering pace and many forms of marine life especially species that build calcium-based shells are under threat.
Poertner said that if emissions continue to rise at business as usual rates, this would be potentially catastrophic for some species. Acidification is just one of a broader range of the problems facing the oceans and the combination of different effects is increasing the threat. Poertner said:We are already seeing warm water coral reefs on a downslide due to a combination of various stressors, including (rising) temperature. Ocean acidification is still early in the process (but) it will exacerbate these effects as it develops and we will see more calcifying species suffering.
Can you afford to learn a little?
