OCEAN 'ACIDIFICATION' - EXPERT EXPLAINS WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING

Posted 26 March 2015

"Another such favorite theory, mistakenly offered as a fact , speculates we are now witnessing increasing anthropogenic ocean acidification, despite never determining if current pH trends lie within bounds of natural variability. Claims of acidification are based on an 'accepted scientific paradigm' that 'anthropogenic CO2 is entering the ocean as a passive thermodynamic response to rising atmospheric CO2'. Granted when all else is equal, higher atmospheric CO2 concentrations result in more CO2 entering the oceans and declining pH. But the ever-changing conditions of surface waters exert far more powewrful effects". Jim Steele,  director emeritus Sierra Nevada Field Campus, San Francisco State University and author of "Landscapes & Cycles: An Environmentalist's Journey to Climate Skepticism" posts at WattsUpWithThat.
