Pacific volcano offers glimpse of acidic ocean 30 September 2009

The eco-nightmare of choice for an increasing number of people today is ocean acidification. In the north-west Pacific Ocean, underwater vents within the submerged caldera that forms the Maug Islands emit carbon dioxide into a tropical shallow-water environment, creating a localized level of acidity that is fatal to marine life. The Smithsonian Magazine has an article all about the resulting ‘death zone':

The unique death zone, where the water is so acidic from the volcanic vents that no coral can survive, is only 30 feet across and 200 feet long … Both the death zone and the transition zone, where highly acidic water merges with normal sea water, should yield insights into how corals will react to a changing ocean.

Ocean acidification is one of the bill boards of the AGW/Climate Change
proponents and it’s utter BS (Bad Science).
According to the alarmists ocean acidification will destroy our precious coral reefs and trigger a mass extinction of ocean life.

Please search for “ocean acidification” at http://www.icecap.us, or http://wattsupwiththat.com to find one of the many scientific reports that refute these alarmist claims.

The following link is one of them:

Remark,

I don’t deny the the local effects of acidification at the Maug Islands but it is a local effect and should be treated as such.

It must also be said that this is a natural event comparable to any land based volcanic eruption that wipes out life and forests in the vicinity of the eruption.

You only have to look at the Chaitén eruption and it’s local effects.

The warmists use these events in a propaganda campaign block the use of carbon fuels and shut down our economies.

This brings us to the true objectives behind the AGW scare which are 100% political motivated.

So, if it’s your choice to live your future life under a Marxist Regime that deprives you of all your freedom and civil rights, be my guest.

The result will be war and destruction on a scale never seen in human history.

An important indication about the falsification of science recently emerged in regard to the so called “Hockey Stick” temperature reconstruction, one of the pillars in support of the IPCC and AL Gore’s Inconvenient Truth’s claim that the current warming (which stopped in 1998) is unprecedented and caused by humans.

The UN IPCC and Al Gore received the Nobel Price for claims that are based on pure fraud and deception:
