more CO2 in the water

An AP story from yesterday says:

The chemistry of the oceans is changing faster than it has in hundreds of thousands of years because of the carbon dioxide being absorbed from the atmosphere, the National Research Council reported Thursday.

Nice. The article goes on to say:

Carbon dioxide and other industrial gases have been a concern for several years because of their impact on the air, raising global temperatures in a process called the greenhouse effect.

One factor easing that warmth has been the amount of CO2 taken up by the oceans, but that has also caused scientific concerns because the chemicals make the water more acidic, which can affect sea life.


We may not really know if human activity will lead to long-term global warming. There are lots of factors involved, and it's impossible to predict how things will turn out.

But it's ludicrous to think that human activity doesn't affect global climate. Here's more evidence of that.
