    Yet another couple of problems with CO2

    Scientists have discovered a double whammy of negatives from the rapid increase in CO2 in our atmosphere and therefore our oceans.

    As so many deniers tout, the higher CO2 causes plants to grow more rapidly. but this means they have less time to absorb and metabolise minerals and so are becoming less nutritious.

    For a different reason, the lower pH, phytoplankton are becoming less nutritional and they are the base of the entire ocean food chain. With their nutritional loss, all the way up to the fish we eat have less nutrients.

    And not a mention of global warming.

    We're in deep shit. Spaceship Earth is in trouble. Many people have heard of oceanic acidification, from CO2 being absorbed into the oceans. Well, we need to worry about freshwater acidification from CO2 emissions, as well:

    Are you friggin kidding me?

    Plants can't absorb what is absent from the ground.

    To say this connects to co2 is beyond absurd. It is bordering on stupid.

    You'd be better looking at farming practices than industry.

    Have you thought up a more pertinent rebuttal in the past 20 years?

    No need given the factless entries you post.

    Lmao,.. To you snopes presents facts. (Well, sometimes they do by accident)

    Anyway...

    Plants draw minerals from the earth. With monoculture farming, it draws minerals out without any actual replacement of the minerals.

    Plants will grow more with more co2 all else being equal.

    So, both parts are true, but it's asinine to say that the latter is causing the former. They are separate issues.

    Snopes is far more factual than all the right-wing rags thrown around here put together, which rags find facts to be anathema.

    However, snopes was not cited here. Scientific American was, which is a scientific journal rather than a political one.

    LOL On whatever boards he posts it is the same. He thinks he is the master of all commentary while pushing for censorship of any who disagree with him or the leftist agenda. He hasn't had an original thought since 1960. I have him on ignore on multiple boards.

    Snopes is a farce.
