EPA to let states address rising ocean acidity By GENE JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer Gene Johnson, Associated Press Writer 1 hr 22 mins ago SEATTLE The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it will consider ways the states can address rising levels of carbon dioxide in oceans. The agency on Thursday settled a lawsuit filed last year by the Center for Biological Diversity in San Francisco. The problem stems from oceans absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and results in the rising acidity of the water. It seriously threatens shellfish and other marine life. The lawsuit accused the EPA of acting improperly when it approved a list of impaired waters in Washington state that omitted the state's coastal waters. In the settlement the EPA agrees to hear from the public in developing ways that the states can use the Clean Water Act to regulate pollutants that cause ocean acidification.

Lubchenko from NOAA was parading this tripe before Congress a few months ago. She had demonstrations with vinegar, dry ice, sea water, etc. that left the Congresscritters positively agog.
I’ll see if I can find the videos of the hearing.
Here ya go. It takes a bit to load, then scroll down to Lubchenko’s “demonstration.”
Her claims are totally outrageous.
I was getting it for a while, but it finally went away.
It became my tag line as a memorial.
PING to #42 in case you haven’t seen it.
Dude, you’re getting that message because you started talking smack about dolomite precipitation.
The Partial Pressure Absorption Mod may seem to have a cushy job, but when a poster starts to dabble with CaCO3 deposition, that’s when he earns his pay.
I’ve been there once or twice. Some crazy people, sure. Some leftist idiots, sure. But it’s still an American city, and the people who live there are still Americans. Are you seriously saying you wouldn’t be upset if it was wiped out?
The Idsos are awesome!
I’m back! I actually wrote out an opus and tried to post it too. Looks like the Mods killed it.
Man...I was highly upset last night. I had all this cool stuff in my head that I wanted to post, but I was getting frustrated at the delay.
I have an idea — remove all of that evil oil from the ocean, and maybe it will produce less CO2.
I would not be upset and I don’t consider the people who live there to be Americans (none are Americans in spirit and well over half were not born here and are here illegally), and I’m including the entire metropolitan area in that. And I won’t even go into what has resulted from their official “sanctuary” policies of hiding violent criminals who are here illegally and their refusal to ever contact ICE, their hatred for the military, or the Castro district, which has the largest concentration of radical homosexuals in the country. For example, they openly, on the sidewalks, have anal sex with each other while completely naked and routinely invade churches to disrupt services. Then there’s Berkeley right across the bay. The entire area is an America-hating, Marxist mecca. Ron Dellums, Barbara Smith, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer - all Marxist politicians, all from that area.
I could go on for pages.

Thanks. I’ll take a look when I get a chance. That piece I posted is from an excellent website on the CO2 threat myth.
Here’s a link to their home page:
Yes. You’ll notice that some of the links are to the Idso’s papers.
You could go on for pages describing how disgusting SF is, how evil SF’s politics are, etc. I would agree with you wholeheartedly. But when you would celebrate the deaths of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of American citizens (yes, there are plenty of illegals there, but there are also plenty of American citizens there too), you have crossed the line. That is one of the most un-American things I have ever read on this site, and you ought to be ashamed of yourself.
This is why I love FR so much. You can always count on a cat fight on every thread. Even when you think you started a great discussion on the inverse solubility properties of carbon dioxide.
Anal sex, nuclear bombs, and CO2. It doesn’t get any better than that Jim.
Just so you guys know...you guys are the reason I’m hitting the donate button again today.
