Several weeks back I got all excited after the CRU eMails were leaked, and was hoping that it might prove to be the turning point in this fight. In a discussion about it with Bob Ferguson, the President of SPPI (Science and Public Policy Institute), Bob calmly responded that it wouldn’t slow them down at all, and that they’ll simply come up with another lurking catastrophe to make us hysterical over. He then said that “Ocean Acidification” would likely be their next manufactured panic.
Bob was right of course, in fact the enviro-fascists were already long at work on this one. The NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) recently released a video all about Ocean Acidification, and how it will destroy our oceans. In reply, SPPI just released their report exposing the truth behind this ridiculous new green fantasy, with a foreward by Lord Monckton.
“OCEAN ACIDIFICATION” – THE EXTREMISTS’ FALLBACK SCARE
First, they called it “global warming”. Then they noticed there had been no warming for 15 years, and cooling for 9, so they hastily renamed it “climate change”. Then they noticed the climate was changing no more than it ever had, so they tried “energy security”, and even named a Congressional Bill after it. Then they noticed that most Western nations already had bountiful energy security, in the form of vast, untapped domestic supplies of oil, gas, coal, or all three, so they switched to “ocean acidification”.
This is the new phantasmagoric for the tired, old scare whipped up by the NRDC and the environmental extremist movement for their own profit at our expense. The world’s corals, they tell us, will be eaten away by the acidified ocean within not more than ten years hence. Shellfish will be no more, their calcified carapaces and exoskeletons dissolved by the carbonic acid caused by our burning of fossil fuels. The oceans will die. Sound familiar?
Yet, as the indefatigable Craig Idso here demonstrates, the scientific consensus – if science were done by consensus at all, which it is not – is that the rising “ocean acidification” scare is just more piffle.
