    Don’t forget that colloidal silver is considered a cure for bad breath and that Laura Silverman, Sarah Silverman’s sister, voiced Dr. Katz’s receptionist on the Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist show.
    It’s just an ordinary rabbit hole.
    Nothing to fear.

    What an odd way to admit that you are wrong and that your program of hostile actions against industry, capitalism and humanity in general is inappropriate and evil.
    But, I’ll accept your admission.

    There’s a lesson here… somewhere…

    Exactly!
    The acid rain that is harmful is usually sulfuric acid from such industries as paper mills, and was once an actual problem.
    From: ion.chem.usu.edu
    In summary;
    [] CO2 enters water through interface with the atmosphere and the biological processes of organic carbon digestion and photosynthesis.
    [] Aqueous carbon dioxide, CO2 (aq), reacts with water forming carbonic acid, H2CO3 (aq).
    [] Carbonic acid may loose protons to form bicarbonate, HCO3- , and carbonate, CO32-. In this case the proton is liberated to the water, decreasing pH.
    [] The complex chemical equilibria are described using two acid equilibrium equations.
    [] The first acid equilibrium constant accounts for the CO2 (aq) – H2CO3 (aq) equilibrium. It concequently seems to have a high pKa.
    [] The fraction of the inorganic carbon in a particular form is call the “alpha” and there are simple equation to describe this alpha.

    Learning isn’t difficult when things aren’t deliberately hidden to sell a particular point, as often happens with religious teachings.

    Only a Pen-goo-in on the inside.

    No.
    It won’t.
    Warming, by itself, will reduce CO2 levels.
    In addition to the increase in vegetative matter that will accompany the return of rain and snow to places like the Sahara and Greenland, rain and snow respectively, there is also the direct absorption of carbon dioxide by water. When there is more water in the atmosphere, it will absorb more of the CO2 and carry it to Earth, there to be used or stored.
    The projected detrimental effect on the biosphere is speculative fiction, at best.
    In any case, the growing aridity will cause CO2 increase even without any stupid mammals to burn gasoline and coal.
    And the growing aridity will cause warming and sea rise and more violent and frequent storms closer to their source waters.
    The only thing variable is the amount of time required to heat the seas to reverse the aridity, by the amount of inland habitat loss required to achieve that warming.
    Future generations will suffer a greater loss of habitat from attempts to engineer global climate, just as they do from attempts to engineer global government and global economics by the same people bringing you the Mirakle Klimate Kure.
    It is all incorrect.
    It is based in hatred of humankind, not love of them, and in no way intends to be kind to future generations.
    Your sales pitch is ineffective.

    Oh yeah!
    I loved that show!

    He’s the father of Sterling Archer and Bob Belcher. And then you’ve got that Silverman connection going, too.
    True fact: Penguins never sit down.

    OH! I just realized that people may be concerned how increasing CO2 levels from the current 0.04% atmospheric concentration to an apocalyptic 0.06% would change the Earth’s biosphere and affect life forms on Earth.
    I have to admit that it will probably be more favorable to life forms that use carbon in some capacity, but I really can’t think of any that do. We here are mostly made of rainbows and unicorn sparkles.

    Not to mention everybody at Starbucks.

    Wow. That straw man never had a chance.
    If only real problems were so easily defeated.
