Alarm over Southern Ocean warming

New research shows that the Southern Ocean is storing more heat than any other ocean in the world.

The Southern Ocean has been the main absorber of heat and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and now the levels are increasing at a rapid rate, many scientists fear that this will eventually cause the water to become super corrosive and destroy the outer shells of many animals living in the ocean.

"The study, carried out by Tasmania's Antarctic Climate and Ecosystem centre, has found that carbon dioxide levels in the Southern Ocean will be corrosive to some shellfish by 2030 if current trends continue."

Climate change, not global warming. Global warming is a hoax.

Climate change, not global warming. Global warming is a hoax. So the graphs showing a steady rise of mean global temperatures are fakes ?? Br Cornelius

It's going to be funny to see how many of the lemmings fall for this one. Cattle are so easily led around by the nose. This is just another attempt to extort money from the taxpayer in the name of good science.

Br Cornelius do you mean the ones where they deleted tree ring data from 1940-2000? yes. http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=218016&st=30&p=4131601entry4131601 do you mean the ones where they used invalid statistical techniques that produced hockey stick graphs even if you fed in random numbers? yes.

Climate change, not global warming. Global warming is a hoax. Just what do you think climate change is? I haven't noticed the global mean temp going down in the last 40 years. Doug

It's going to be funny to see how many of the lemmings fall for this one. Cattle are so easily led around by the nose. This is just another attempt to extort money from the taxpayer in the name of good science. The double-cropping system will cost a bundle, yes. But it won't be implemented until one year after a massive crop failure. Until that happens, it's just a plan on paper, gathering dust until needed. I'm not sure, but I think it's set up so that the farmers actually pay for it when they buy crop insurnace. Those costs are then passed on to purchasers, so there's no tax money involved. ... [More]

No. I mean direct observations using thermometers. Tree ring temps are estimates based on correlations with instrumental observations. Some accuracy is always lost in the process. So why would anyone use tree rings for a period when there were instrumental observations availa... [More]
