Warmist scientists don't pass the acid test!

With global warming turning into global cooling, global sea ice above average, and hurricane numbers dwindling it is difficult for alarmists to do their job and alarm us. However all is not lost and we have Team Acid to scare the bejeezus out of us with stories of seas dominated by jellyfish as the acid ocean dissolves poor little crustaceans.
After cruising the south seas at taxpayer's expense on the good ship Lollypop scientists have stated that now acidification is the new go-to alarmist buzz-word and it is the "evil twin of climate change" .


Acidification is expected to increase significantly over the next century.
"We often call it the evil twin of climate change," Dr Roberts said.
"The little critters that have got shells that are going to be eaten away by the acid, they're in trouble.

The only problem is that the sea is never acid and addition of CO2 drives the ocean pH closer to a neutral pH , the same as pure water which will not "eat away" anything. 

Dr Roberts said pteropods were a sentinel organism for the Southern Ocean and her research team hoped to continue to monitor them and their shell sizes over the coming years.
 
Translated this means that with the aid of taxpayer's  money the big scientific-type critters will continue their travels on the southern oceans and maybe do research enough to learn the difference between alkalinity and acidity - or maybe they could go to a high school chemistry lesson which would be much cheaper..

  1. When will the scientifically-ignorant masses realise that they're being conned by a relatively small group of government grant-demanding pseudo-scientists via the totally biased mass media e.g. the Silly Moaning Herald?

    Professor of Meteorology Richard Lindzen's "Earth is never in equilibrium" (look it up on Google) should be mandatory reading for all high school children, but that wouldn't be Politically Correct because it conflicts with what Prime Minister Brown says.
