This is absolutely terrible. SHAME, SHAME on our current generations for allowing our beautiful blue spaceship earth to degenerate into what will be a very, dark epoch. Our children, our grandchildren, and generations to follow will pay the price.
When CO2 enters the ocean, it turns the water acidic and destroys all calcium carbonate life, such as shellfish and the coral reefs. When the reefs die, all the microorganisms that live in those reefs die, as do the small organisms and fish that feed on them as well as the larger fish who feed on the smaller ones
So, in our lifetime, we may very well experience the extinction of most ocean creatures. No more fish. No more oysters, No more salmon. Nothing.
How will this impact global needs for protein foods? Severe. Widespread starvation.
But don't worry, Mitch Mconnell and his cohorts won't miss a meal.
In the last great extinction, 250 million years ago, over 90% of marine life perished, along with over 70% of land based animal and plant life.
However, worry not, the planet may well recover it's ocean's health, with luck, about 1,000 years after our industrial based society falls apart.
