Following my post yesterday, a friend of mine alerted me to this great little animation on ocean acidification.
We are already starting to see the effects – which are largely unappreciated in many arenas. I won’t step on any toes; Climate Shift offer enough on the subject here, AGW Observer has a number of excellent papers here and Plantos-Science discusses it throughout their site.
While you get conferences such as the recent gathering at the Heartland Institute under the heading, “The Fourth International Conference on Climate Change: Reconsidering the science and economics“, aimed at discussing the debate over AGW, we continue to dig ourself a bigger hole. I fail to see how anyone can continue to justify such an irrelevant debate over our carbon emissions where AGW is but one bird of many lined up for a single stone; a shift away from fossil fuels.
