Oceans running out of oxygen at unprecedented rate, experts warn

Oceans running out of oxygen at unprecedented rate, experts warn

Climate change and nutrient pollution are driving oxygen out from our oceans, and threatening many species of fish. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in its report says around 700 ocean sites are now suffering from low oxygen, compared with 45 in the 1960s. Climate change and nutrient discharge are expected to cause a 3%-4% decrease in ocean oxygen levels by 2100.

Total bollocks, as per usual. The Journal of Geophysical Research finds that warming increases oceanic O2 saturation. They also found that global oceanic O2 saturation is maintaining an equilibrium, neither increasing or decreasing overall. Further, they found that higher atmospheric CO2 is beneficial to oxygen-producing phytoplankton, such that more CO2 in the atmosphere is favourable to more O2 in the oceans. Remember, the most fertile period in Earth history was during a time when CO2 was at 7,000 ppm, more than 15 times higher than today. Most of this abundant life was concentrated in the oceans. The problem with climate science is that it's not science, insofar as it elevates a political narrative above actual data.

Oxi-dihydroxy- compounds containing O- substances (group 16, period 2) enthalpy suggests the systems entropy is significantly altered, proving global warming. Now sit down, shut up, and listen to someone who has ACTUAL knowledge of Latin and Greek. Amo, amas, amat. You fool.

Business as usual. Profit at all costs. Science can always be defeated by propaganda, until it can't.
