“Ocean Acidification” alarmism, inconvenient reminder…
Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach
There’s an interesting study out on the natural pH changes in the ocean. I discussed some of these pH changes a year ago in my post “The Electric Oceanic Acid Test“. Before getting to the new study, let me say a couple of things about pH.
The pH scale measures from zero to fourteen. Seven is neutral, because it is the pH of pure water. Below seven is acidic. Above seven is basic. This is somewhat inaccurately but commonly called “alkaline”. Milk is slightly acidic. Baking soda is slightly basic (alkaline).
The first thing of note regarding pH is that alkalinity is harder on living things than is acidity. Both are corrosive of living tissue, but alkalinity has a stronger effect. It seems counterintuitive, but it’s true. For example, almost all of our foods are…

New publication demonstrates that scientists have routinely exaggerated the “evil twin of climate change” aka ocean acidificationPosted: April 16, 2016
Corals evolved during the Cambrian era when atmospheric CO2 levels were around 4,000 percent higher than today’s CO2 starved environment – 6,000 ppm then c/w 400 ppm today.
The very fact “ocean acidification” is referred, as opposed to the correct scientific term “less alkaline” is a big enough hint to indicate that the human CO2 induced “ocean acidification” threat has been a fear-mongering beat up from the very beginning, trotted out by the climate crisis industry to drive their alarmist agenda.
A new paper published in the ICES Journal of Marine Science puts the issue of “ocean acidification” to the test, and finds that there has been significant exaggeration in the issue. The paper is:
Applying organized scepticism to ocean acidification research
“Ocean acidification” (OA), a change in seawater chemistry driven by increased uptake of atmospheric CO2 by the oceans, has probably been the most-studied single topic in marine science in recent times. The majority of the literature on OA report negative effects of CO2 on organisms and conclude that OA will be detrimental to marine ecosystems. As is true across all of science, studies that report no effect of OA are typically more difficult to publish. Further, the mechanisms underlying the biological and ecological effects of OA have…

“It is difficult for climate alarmists to convince people that they are going to burn up, when they aren’t hot. But the biblical flood story is an easier scam to push, because it is based on a sudden event sometime in the future. People who are mentally unstable (i.e. progressives) latch on to these ideas easily.”
NASA’s Antarctic ice study, released October 2015, confirms how mentally unstable progressives’ interpretation and manipulation of climate science has become in order to suit their political agenda…
“A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.”
The cornerstone of climate alarmism strategy is making people believe that their carbon sins will lead to a great flood. A giant flood caused by man’s sin is an easy concept to push, because most people were raised with it.
The basis of the modern flood theory is that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) will somehow “collapse” and that it is due to man-made global warming.
The theory of collapse of the WAIS has been around for a long time, and scientists have also known for a long time that “it has nothing to do with climate.“
Scientists also know that the “collapse” of the WAIS has been occurring for centuries, long before the automobile was invented.
