Marcus Aurelius    [TotalFark]  
Leviticus says that eating shellfish is a much worse abomination than homosexuality. I can see God's fingerprints all over this one.

Clearly we've transitioned from "God would never allow climate change" to "God is causing climate change and it's a good thing".

It was all fun and games WHEN my snail dissolved. I mean, my slug. A slug is just a snail without a shell, right? Mom was always pissed at me for using all the table salt dissolving slugs. The big Bananas were the best.

How about giant filters that remove the CO2 from the air? Filters on factory and power plant smokestacks? Filters for sea water? It's amazing how much we talk about the problem, but not about any solutions.

In 300 million years, future species will dig up our fossils and wonder who the heck throws out a perfectly good frying pan just because the handle is a bit wobbly.

Junk science. The published research itself shows that not only is it rife with errors but that the experiments were done in artificial conditions in an aquarium. Images provided show results.

The pH is currently dropping at about 0.1 per century, faster than any time in the last 300 million years.

Unpossible! Everybody knows the earth is only 2012 years old.

Do you seriously think that humans contribute nothing to ecological disaster, especially when there's scientific fact to back it up?

You're the equivalent of a fat person who pretends he has a slow metabolism and that it's his body's fault instead of taking even an ounce of responsibility for his carelessness.

Except global warming has scientific evidence, while the others never did. Don't promote anti-intellectualism.

People sometimes die by murder therefore every death must be murder.

Works both ways, right?

When there's an oozing bullet hole and your first instinct is to say, "Heart attack.", then I question your judgment.

Sure. Rarely so when the evidence is agreed upon by more than 90% of experts, with growing data over several decades. Why is it that you don't trust them in this case? Because it would cost money? Rush Limbaugh told you differently? It means big government? What?

Headline: "Animals are already dissolving in Southern Ocean"
Article: "...found under an electron microscope that the outer layers of their hard shells bore signs of unusual corrosion."


EVERYBODY PANIC!!

There is a subtle, but really f'ing important, difference between "dissolving" and sub-microscopic "signs of unusual corrosion".

It's also one hell of a leap to go from, "Patches of [aragonite] undersaturation have already been seen" to, "By 2050, there will be a severe shortage of aragonite in much of the ocean."
