New Peer-Reviewed Study About Ocean "Acidification": Jellyfish Prove Ocean Life Is Not At Risk
Read here. A lot of publicity and research funds have found their way to scientists because of the bizarre fear the oceans will become too "acidic" to support life. Even Hollywood bimbos pass their prime have so claimed. Unfortunately for the bimbos, and the ocean-is-acid alarmists, the real science keeps finding the evidence doesn't support the hysterical fear-mongering. Surprised?
"Winans and Purcell conclude that "A. labiata polyps [a jellyfish life stage] are quite tolerant of low pH, surviving and reproducing asexually even at the lowest tested pH," which degree of "acidification" is not expected to occur (even by climate alarmists) until about AD 2300.....they acknowledge that many organisms "may be able to acclimate or adapt to slowly changing pH conditions." And in this context they report that in Puget Sound "pH fluctuates from 7.2 to 9.6 in 2.4-meter deep water over the span of a couple of days," stating that "with such large pH fluctuations due to plant photosynthesis during the day and respiration at night, many organisms may be exposed to low pH conditions routinely." And, obviously, they are also successfully dealing with those low pH conditions routinely, as are an enormous amount of other marine organisms."
