Global warming and acid oceans have been blamed on greenhouse gases from human fossil fuels. Now growing evidence proves Mother Nature is the most likely cause.
Mother nature? Not AGW?
A study by Australian geology researcher, Timothy Casey disproves the recent claims by alarmist environmentalists that man-made emissions of carbon dioxide have been causing ocean acidification.
Oops! What? No acidification?
These disturbing claim has been perplexing geologists, among other researchers, that have failed to detect any increase in acidification in the word’s rivers, lakes, reservoirs and aquariums.
So CO2 is so selective it gets into the world’s oceans, but ignores lakes, streams, rivers, reservoirs, aquariums, not to mention my hot tub? Yeah right!
This study supports what we’re talking about now.
Researchers have looked again at the numbers obtained by oceanographers (i.e. Hillier & Watts (2007)) that surveyed 201,055 submarine volcanoes. From this they concluded an astounding total of 3,477,403 submarine volcanoes must reasonably exist worldwide. They based this finding on the earlier and well-respected observations of Batiza (1982) who found that at least 4 per cent of seamounts are active volcanoes.
As per the usual the IPCC conveniently ignores all these volcanos and cherry picks data to fit their AGW theory…
None of the more than 2,000 active submarine volcanoes have even been discussed in Kerrick (2001), a paper referred to by the IPCC and used to eliminate volcanoes as an important factor in Co2 output into the atmosphere.
Furthermore, Kerrick (2001) justifies the omission of mid oceanic ridge emissions by claiming that mid oceanic ridges discharge less Co2 than is consumed by mid oceanic ridge hydrothermal carbonate systems. There is no evidence to support such a conclusion.
There seems to be increasing volcanic activity, too.
Casey’s study looked at examples such as the Blue Lake in the crater of dormant volcano, Mount Gambier now acidifying due to volcanogenic CO2 input. It lies in the regional centre of the Limestone Coast in the South East of South Australia. It has now been found Mount Gambier is not quite so dormant as some alarmist studies suggested. If this fact was repeated world-wide then it would dispel concerns that human emitted greenhouse gases were the cause of rising levels of sea acidity. The real culprit seems to have been Nature all along.
(I will add that similar is occurring in the Mammoth Mountain area in California There are areas where gases are seeping out of the ground and killing trees and other vegetation. More evidence of CO2 venting into the atmosphere).
The conclusion is therefore becoming very clear that atmospheric carbon dioxide can not be the cause of oceanic acidification as we once thought.Thus we may fairly infer it is a non-problem.
In addition to this I have always wondered why they measure CO2 on Mauna Loa because it’s an active volcano. I wonder how much this inflates the amount of CO2 they claim is in the atmosphere?
Yet another faux pas by the IPCC and their buddies. The lies just keep on coming.
