We have been told that trace gas CO2 dictates the world’s climate, overpowering the oceans and solar factors. So now we should not be surprised when someone tells us that the atmosphere dominates the behavior of the oceans, which are far more massive.
The stream of junk environmental science doesn’t stop flowing. Again a small group is trying to convince us that the tail wags the dog. Actually in this case, the flea at the end of the tail is wagging the dog (CO2 causes climate change, which in turn causes “ocean change”).
The German warmist website klimaretter (in English that means “climate rescuer”) has become a leading provider of kook warmist stories lately. Their latest is here: Researchers Warning Of Ocean Change, which cites a report officially released today by World Ocean Review in Hamburg.
Climate change will soon profoundly influence the world oceans: This is the conclusion of “World Ocean Review”, the scientists of the Kiel Cluster of Excellence of “Ocean of the Future” in Hamburg released on Thursday.
I thought Halloween season with people running around in costumes was over. No – we are expected to accept this as fact, without skepticm or questions.
With Cancun coming up, and its failure already programmed, the 240-page report, filled with photos and charts, is the latest volume of junk science designed to spread alarm, a Hail Mary attempt to sway a public, which has long since grown deaf to the cries of climate change. Klimaretter writes:
Climate change does not only lead to rising temperatures and rising sea levels, but it also leads to increased oceanic acidification.
According to today’s online Stern magazine, in its article The world’s oceans – exploited and trashed:
‘The world’s oceans are now a high risk patient that has a chance – if given the right therapy,’ says Martin Visbeck, spokesman for the Cluster Of Excellence”
The recent report is the result of two years of work done by 40 researchers.
The Ocean Science and Research Foundation, a foundation set up by Elisabeth Mann Borgese, a fighter for ocean protection, financed the oceans’ status report. Also involved was the International Ocean Institute, which she also created.
There you have it – activist-sponsored science, which means it has nothing to do with objectivity. In the future a World Ocean Review will be released every 2 years. The latest report not only focuses on CO2-caused acidification, but on over-fishing and trash in the oceans.
