I have mentioned it frequently before, there is another serious problem with pumping CO2 into the atmosphere, ocean acidification.
Geoengineering should never be discussed without mentioning it. The Way Things Break tells Nature as much.
Connie Willis wrote a story about the unintended consequences of geoengineering. Scientists found a method to restore the ozone layer with the minor side effect of making the moon look blue. So then things that only happened once in a blue moon started happening all the time.
Another scary story, another rebuttle
and here discuss past and present PH levels
This one shows one of many studies to determine the effects on sea creatures
This one talks about the effects on corals with a few good links embedded in the article.
Or you can just go here and browse all the articles.
Once again the scary story tellers are shown to be just that and nothing more.
co2science is only slightly less reliable that WUWT.
I get similar arguments from religious nutters, for example the Koran is no good because it does not represent the one true God.
First off, kudos to you, Coby, for doing such a thankless job.
Here’s a story related to ocean acidification that you may have missed: A recent experiment to use oceans as co2 sinks by fertilization with iron showed poor results. The plankton increased, but so did the rest of the food chain, which quickly cycled the co2 back into the atmosphere.
Thanks for the feedback and the link, skepville. I remember that story too.
