Methane Bubbles

Namibia...and sardines...and methane bubbles from the ocean...brb...


Across the world scientists are discovering how the removal of one component of any ocean system can often have unsavory domino effects that scientists call trophic cascades.

That was on TV this morning...tonight it's some sci fi combo of Alien and The Thing....c24....chromosone 24....sam injects her he's shooting all the bad things in the lab...maybe it's from a video that it?..."are you gonna shoot me?...yeah...I got one clip left..."...and a commercial....brb! of the "doom" scenarios has it that the ocean has a lot of pent up gases at the very bottom...kinda like that volcanic lake that released a gas and killed villagers nearby...brb...


Around 1700 people were killed when a lethal cloud of gas erupted from a lake in Cameroon in 1986.

unquote it's like superman fighting a berzerker superman...I guess it's a happy ending...

CO2 in solution in the ocean....brb...


There is about 50 times as much carbon dissolved in the oceans in the form of CO2 and CO2 hydration products as exists in the atmosphere. The oceans act as an enormous carbon sink, having "absorbed about one-third of all human-generated CO2 emissions to date[23]." Generally, gas solubility decreases as water temperature increases. Accordingly carbon dioxide is released from ocean water into the atmosphere as ocean temperatures rise.
Most of the CO2 taken up by the ocean forms carbonic acid. Some is consumed in photosynthesis by organisms in the water, and a small proportion of that sinks and leaves the carbon cycle. There is considerable concern that as a result of increased CO2 in the atmosphere the acidity of seawater will increase and may adversely affect organisms living in the water. In particular, with increasing acidity, the availability of carbonates for forming shells decreases.


and of course it's in soda pop...


Atmospheric temperature is regulated by the sun, which fluctuates in activity as shown in Figure 3; by the greenhouse effect, largely caused by atmospheric water vapor (H2O); and by other phenomena that are more poorly understood. While major greenhouse gas H2O substantially warms the Earth, minor greenhouse gases such as CO2 have little effect, as shown in Figures 2 and 3. The 6-fold increase in hydrocarbon use since 1940 has had no noticeable effect on atmospheric temperature or on the trend in glacier length.


The temperature of the Earth is continuing its process of fluctuation in correlation with variations in natural phenomena. Mankind, meanwhile, is moving some of the carbon in coal, oil, and natural gas from below ground to the atmosphere and surface, where it is available for conversion into living things. We are living in an increasingly lush environment of plants and animals as a result. This is an unexpected and wonderful gift from the Industrial Revolution.


charts and graphs and a petition drive of some sort to gore?...I dont's a strange read...again...rampant developement of the car's infrastructure....just plain road building I'd say!...has hardly been a gift to Nature!....there are some awful thinking and thoughts about...above an example...walk!...start my own four letter word petition...hmph...oh...I cant read that...but it mentions a solution of putting 'tiny' particles into the upper atmospher to block cool things off if need be...that would be the contrails!..brb...


ScienceDaily (Apr. 28, 2004) — NASA scientists have found that cirrus clouds, formed by contrails from aircraft engine exhaust, are capable of increasing average surface temperatures enough to account for a warming trend in the United States that occurred between 1975 and 1994


well...everything is getting obscured by diverting minutia...diverting in the sense no one reacts to what is obvious...the proliferation of traffic jams and parking garages...two billion cars within fifty years...these aren't's an alien invasion...walk!
