The Missing Sink

Scientists are now saying that the oceans are absorbing 48% of the world's carbon dioxide output, thereby slowing the greenhouse effect. However, the sink effect, as they call it, is now changing ocean chemistry.

The resulting change has slowed growth of plankton, corals, and other invertebrates that serve as the most basic level of the ocean food chain. The impacts on marine life could be severe, scientists say.

How nice. We're destroying the oceans (in multiple ways now), we're destroying the ozone layer, the rainforests, the regular forests, the river systems, lakes, ponds and streams, the air we breathe, every species of animal and plant on the planet (except the pest species like cockroaches, fire ants, killer bees, rats, and anything else you kill on sight), arable land is disappearing, our food supplies are being poisoned with pesticides, mercury, diseases, hormones, human waste and who knows what else, even space is being polluted with old satellites, and on top of all that (and everything I missed), we're on on the verge, if it hasn't already begun, of World War!

It's so comforting to know the United Nations is ready and able to save us. Ha, ha.

And unless those days should be shortened, no flesh would be saved. But for the elect's sake, those days shall be shortened. Matthew 24:22
