Weekend Video: Acid Test

May 9, 2010

This video talks about effects of increased atmospheric CO2 on Ocean ecosystem resulting into  Ocean Acidification. Ocean is huge but there is a limit to how much it can intake man made CO2. Its time some decisive action is taken with regard to global warming/carbon emission and that too soon.The Ocean ecosystem is extremely fragile, makes me wonder how much damage we have already caused to the ecosystem in the Gulf coast due to BP spill which still continues as the efforts to control the leak by putting a huge dome over the leak has failed as of now.To add to the disaster already been done, BP has been using a dispersant corexit 9500 to break the crude oil layer which has been shown by their own labs to be toxic even when more effective and less toxic alternative, Dispersit,  was available. Why not choose the lesser evil then? Who gives them the permission to dump millions of gallons of toxic chemicals in the ocean?

More BP spill updates later… Have a nice weekend.
