OCEANS NOT DYING AFTER ALL

Well, Rats: Oceans Not Dying After All    by Steven Hayward at PowerLine:

One of the leading talking points of the climatistas is that we’re going to turn to oceans into giant acid vats that will melt your toes off if we don’t turn over our car keys to Al Gore. Well, Science magazine this week reports a whole lot of cold salt water on the theory. Here’s the full squib:

Resilience of the oceans revealed

Shahid Naeem

Earth will witness a massive change in ocean acidification in this century. Ocean acidification adversely affects marine biodiversity and biogeochemistry. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is especially important for its role in storing roughly 700 Gt of carbon. Zark et al. used large mesocosms suspended in a Swedish fjord to measure DOM response to acidification likely to be experienced in the year 2100. Encouragingly, despite enormously complex system dynamics, DOM in acidified mesocosms rarely differed from that in controls. We’re not necessarily off the hook, but at least carbon stored in DOM may withstand the insult of acidification that our excessive generation of CO2 will create in this century.

Apparently the paper this is based on hasn’t been published yet. I turned up two links to longer abstracts, here and here.

The climatistas will have to go back to boiling frogs or something.

P.S. Of course, it is possible that scientists will figure out ways to de-carbonize the ocean, such as is described in this research report about experiments with nanotechnology bots that would do just that. You can be sure that if this idea is at all practical, environmentalists will oppose it.

Tough, Bright, Honest and Conservative American Chaffetz to Seek House Chairmanship

CHAFFETZ MAKES PLAY FOR SPEAKERSHIP     by Bradford Richardson at The Hill:

“House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is launching a bid for the Speakership, challenging Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), The Hill has confirmed.

An informed source told The Hill that Chaffetz is definitely running. Politico first reported on Chaffetz’s Speakership bid.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) said in a statement obtained by The Hill that Chaffetz has been invited to a House forum on Tuesday to audition for the Speakership.

“The forum invitation was extended to the two individuals currently announced as running for Speaker,” Huelskamp said in the statement. “And given the recent reports, we have also invited Chairman Chaffetz – should he decide to announce his candidacy – to join the forum as well.”

McCarthy’s only competition for the post so far is Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), who is seen as the underdog.

Chaffetz, 48, a four-term lawmaker well respected in the conference, would be a more serious challenger, but is entering the race late. McCarthy has been making calls to GOP members seeking their support over the last week.
Chaffetz had criticized remarks by McCarthy this week that linked the work of the House Select Committee on Benghazi to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s falling poll numbers, saying he should apologize.

McCarthy’s comments undercut GOP arguments that the panel was not set up for political reasons — and led some to question whether he was ready for the House’s top job…..”   Please read on:
