    Global cooling, then global warming, then climate change. None of it panned out. They briefly considered Global Weirding but that didn't survive Progressive focus groups and was not released.

    Our newest contestant in the "Give Us Total Control So We Can Save The Planet" game is Ocean Acidification. This time we're all gonna die for sure. Really. This is the Big One. Hand over all your dough and do what we say......or else.

    The ocean is about a half mile away, makes me want to take the dog for a walk and relieve myself as well. In the surf.

    Rocky7: Sir; interesting

    quote:
    These changes in ocean chemistry can affect the behavior of non-calcifying organisms as well. Certain fish's ability to detect predators is decreased in more acidic waters. When these organisms are at risk, the entire food web may also be at risk.

    Ocean acidification is affecting the entire world’s oceans, including coastal estuaries and waterways. Many economies are dependent on fish and shellfish and people worldwide rely on food from the ocean as their primary source of protein.

    I've got an old box of Arm and Hammer baking soda in the frig that I'm getting ready to change out.
    I'll volunteer to donate it to the cause.
    See how easy that was!

    are you saying hydrogen and carbon can be recycled back into hydrogen and carbon?

    So, evolution is a wonderful mechanism and produced the biodiversity we see today.
    But, we can no longer allow it to influence biology. Natural changes in things like the orbit of the earth, the suns heat output, the populations of certain species, etc...cannot be allowed to happen! They may trigger more evolutionary changes as the various species adapt to change. If only the dinosaurs understood this, they may have spared themselves the ascendency of mankind.

    I don't think he could stop a bowel movement. But we'd have to ask those that dress and clean him daily.

  15. I remember is school that the law of conservation states that matter and energy are constant...or
    The law of conservation of mass or principle of mass conservation states that for any system closed to all transfers of matter and energy, the mass of the system must remain constant over time, as the system's mass cannot change, so quantity can neither be added nor be removed. Therefore, the quantity of mass is conserved over time. Can anyone tell me how there can be too much CO2, if the system is as stated closed? I think Al Gore got some 'splainin' to do!

    One flush of the toilet will pollute a lot of water too.
    But somehow, God created bacteria that breaks it down and cleans the water.
    I guess that's a good thing because I pump water out of the ground on one end of the yard and flush it back into the ground on the other end.

    Oh for God sakes! Just plant more trees! One pine tree on your property will supply your family with enough oxygen forever, or until the tree dies. So I suggest you plant more than one! Trees absorb pollution and turn it into oxygen. God new we would fiddle around and come up with all kinds of chemicals that would be detrimental to our earth. It’s amazing how the earth heals itself from us and our carelessness. Remember the Chaos Theory. Nature finds a way.

    I know people who would vote for Satan if he ran as a Democrat. Come to think of it, Obama did get elected ...
