Plankton not bothered so why are we?

Yet another study debunks the ocean acidification scare

Further evidence that ocean acidification is a non-event, scientifically, even while being a big event for scientists financially:

Thus, both of the investigated coastal plankton communities were unaffected by twenty-first century expected changes in pH and free CO2. This may be explained by the large seasonal, and even daily, changes in pH seen in productive marine ecosystems, and the corresponding need for algae to be pH-tolerant.


This is just one of scores of such reassuring studies. Funny how they get such little play in the media.

Ask yourself if you were being paid by taxpayers to play with toys like this...



...whether you would be keen to report that it is a non-problem.
