Ocean ph is dropping, not rising; it's actually been falling since the 19th century.
Remind me again about how the coral reefs are in danger due to ocean acidification from carbon dioxide?
It's purely a theory - nothing has ever been demonstrated in the real world. And even if its true nothing we do in this country will avert that fate. Nothing.
This is just a theory that you (and others) have absolutely no evidence for. None.
Last time I checked the planet is not losing gases to space, nor is it adding substantial amounts of gas, nor has it changed substantially since the Jurassic period apart from the concentration of carbon dioxide going down due to coal and gas sequestering gasses in the mantle.
The composition of the planet really hasn't changed that much since the formation of the oceans and yet we're supposed to starve to death due to climate change.
Again, no evidence.
It isn't contracting, its expanding. From Reuters 3/2/2021:
Including decommissions, China's coal-fired fleet capacity rose by a net 29.8 GW in 2020, even as the rest of the world made cuts of 17.2 GW, according to research released on Wednesday by Global Energy Monitor (GEM), a U.S. think tank, and the Helsinki-based Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA).
"The runaway expansion of coal-fired power is driven by electricity companies' and local governments' interest in maximising investment spending, more than a real need for new capacity," said Lauri Myllyvirta, CREA lead analyst. China approved the construction of a further 36.9 GW of coal-fired capacity last year, three times more than a year earlier, bringing the total under construction to 88.1 GW. It now has 247 GW of coal power under development, enough to supply the whole of Germany.
Where does it say that China is NOT increasing CO2 emissions from its power industry? All the information that I've found points to the opposite - a massive expansion in the coal-fired power industry across China but especially in the south.
This is yet another point in time where you've made a 'broad brush' kind of statement without any links to back it up - only for me to find within two minutes information that directly contracts your claim.
And you wonder why I can't take anything you say seriously. It's because its nearly always wrong.
Ocean pH is inversely proportional to CO2 in the air, as CO2 in the air has been rising since the 19th century, yes the two are linked. Once again we are talking high school chemistry here.
As pH lowers, the solubility of CaCO3, the backbone of all coral and shell fish increases. You can do this yourself at home. just get a bucket of seawater, put in some shells that have been dried and weighed and then breath through a tube for a few hours into the water then dry and weigh the shells. There are a number of published articles of scientists doing this on a larger scale, which is why the max CO2 in the atmosphere targets were lowered.
Earth does loose its atmosphere to space, but not as fast as Mars and we have replacements.
Regarding evidenced of Jurassic, none of the food you eat today was available during the Jurassic period, unless maybe you eat Crocodile, apart from that and a few other species everything else evolved long after the Jurassic period and is unlikely to survive today.
The Jurassic period was on average 5C warmer than today due to increase CO2 emissions from increased volcanic activity. There are decades of science research behind this.
Your again "no evidence" comments are complete tripe and the worst part about it, you know you are talking rubbish.
There is a VERY BIG difference between installed capacity of output, maybe its about time you actually learnt this. Your poor parroting has just repeated what everyone know, China is building new coal power stations to mostly replacing more polluting aging and relocate coal power stations from the cities. Having been there myself I can verify this. China has a growing very strict emissions control on dust and other, they place camera's on the top of stacks even small business stacks. The coal power stations we saw even had water misters on the stacks to eliminate dust emissions.
Its well known that most Chinese coal power stations operate well below capacity and questionable on how many actually make money. The actual output from coal power stations in China is in decline being replaced by RE and gas.
If you pay attention to the aluminium price you will see its the highest its been in 13 years, mostly driven by China indicating will curtail aluminium production to limit coal power station emissions. They spent the last 10 years reducing CO2 emissions per tonne of aluminium, but have run out of options to push this down further so now limiting production.
Anyway, despite all this the average Chinese person produces half the CO2 / tonne than the average Australian. So becareful about pointing fingers.
