...CO2 since the Industrial Age start and Ocean acidification...! For the deniers of global warming...!

TO THE DENIERS OF CO2 EMISSIONS , which is somewhat different from Global Warming...!

CO2: Global Carbon Dioxide Levels
Linked to Human Activity

What do we know for sure? We know for a fact that CO2 levels are rising and that human activity is the cause.

How do we know this? A simple calculation. Let's start with the year 1750, generally accepted as the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, when the standard measure for CO2 levels was 278ppmv. We'll begin then, add the known level of human-generated CO2 for that year, then subtract 2.84% of the excess CO2 – because that's how fast nature tries to restore the balance. If we do this for 255 years, up to 2005, we get the pink line in the graph below. It fits the black line – the actual CO2 level – like a glove.


Ocean acidification is the name given to the ongoing decrease in the pH and increase in acidity of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.[1] About a quarter of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere goes into the oceans, where it forms carbonic acid.

As the amount of carbon has risen in the atmosphere there has been a corresponding rise of carbon going into the ocean. Between 1751 and 1994 surface ocean pH is estimated to have decreased from approximately 8.25 to 8.14,[2] representing an increase of almost 30% in "acidity" (H+ ion concentration) in the world's oceans.[3][4][5]

This ongoing acidification of the oceans poses a threat to the food chains connected with the oceans.[6]

...FOLKS: anything you burn, even with green source fuels, for jets, after the death of World crude oil, will finally bury the World...!
...What Scientists do not know, is if there is a point of no return...! Or rather when will this point of no return occur...!
...Meanwhile, the false logic economies of the World, dominate, and they are not the most intelligent either...!
