As the global worming schtick has waned, temperatures have refused to rise and the polar icecaps have increased at record rates, the UN saw the writing on the wall and attempted to get some traction with "biodiversity". The Wormists and the skeptics* were too far gone in a rut induced horn lock to even take notice. Whatev.
So what's the next ozoneholethermageddon tax dollar gravy train? Ocean Acidification.
"This Summary for Policymakers states with "very high confidence" that increasing acidification is caused by human activities which are adding 24 million tonnes of CO2 to oceans every day."
Very high confidence.
Where have I heard that before?
So, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and global average temperatures now appear to have no correlation whatsoever. One thing the wormists poo poo that has managed to, begrudgingly, creep into the nooz is the sun seems to be taking a nap. Sun spots are almost nonexistent. Could it be? Nah, Sun activity couldn't possibly have anything to do with temperatures on earth could it? Perish the thought cretin, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
So now the PH level of the oceans is rising because atmospheric CO2!!!111eleventy!11.
Which tree ring will the sciency-tists point at as the safe PH baseline?
Has anyone thought to look into volcanic activity on the ocean floor? I'm just asking, ya know. Personally, I think we need some federal legislation against those nasty, mega-polluting volcanoes.**
I am officially calling bullshit right here, right now. I no more trust "scientists" whoring for government grants than I do obama.
* I am a skeptic. Well, actually that's an understatement. I think global worming is unmitigated bullshit.
** When Mount Pinatubo erupted, it put more pollution into the atmosphere in that one event than all of mankind from the beginning of the industrial revolution up to that very moment in time.
We should file a class action lawsuit against the earth for polluting itself.
