2019-09-05 Climate Change:: Both Sides Of The Story

I’ve been spending a lot of time reading both sides of the issue of Climate Change. The biggest thing that I get from this is that it’s much more complicated than the proponents and opponents make it out to be. The proponents say this is the end of the world, but they are basing their beliefs on a science that is much less than exact. And by the time the scientific studies have been filtered by the political people, we have some results that are making claims backed by no substantial facts.

I do know that the results of the higher amount of CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere is causing bad things to happen that can be seen and measured right now, in the present. One quarter of the CO2 in the atmosphere gets absorbed by the oceans. The increase is causing the oceans to be more acidic. This carbonic acid is preventing the tiny crustaceans from building the calcium shells that they require to live. They die as a result. There are many other sea creatures that depend on these tiny crustaceans and the loss of their food supply is reducing these other sea creatures. Other fish and sea mammals such as whales are losing their food supply and sea birds depend on the sea for their food too. One result is less fish for land animals. These losses are affecting the whole world and are directly measurable, not based on some prediction.
