The most catastrophic health disaster in man’s history is right around the corner. Man’s ever-increasing use of coal, NG & other fossil fuels is the major cause of ocean acidification.
The oceans of the world are man’s greatest oxygen reservoir. As the oceans absorb CO2 out of the atmosphere, free oxygen is displaced by CO2. CO2 in the ocean is carbolic acid, and is easily detected with instruments like pH meters. It’s a known fact that the acid content of our oceans is rapidly increasing, killing off a lot of sea life. This CO2 absorption mechanism also releases oxygen from the oceans for man to breathe.
Since the oceans are continuously giving off oxygen, scientists are unaware that there is an oxygen depletion catastrophe around the corner that is going to kill people in the billions. A rapid rise in ocean acidification results in a rapid rise in free oxygen being delivered to man’s breathable atmosphere.
Once oxygen content is nearly depleted, the breathable oxygen percentage will rapidly drop from 19% to about 8-12% globally. This will lead to a rapid dying off of the world’s population through lung disease, cancer, heart disease & general loss of survivability (except those who can buy oxygen).
This is the real ELE (extinction level event) that is in progress right now. The only thing that would help alleviate this problem would be the rapid meltdown of Antarctica. Massive amounts of oxygen have been locked up in polar ice for thousands of years – this is our only other major supply of oxygen.
In reply to the backlash claiming, “We can’t stop using fossil fuels.” we dedicated our R&D decades ago in developing solutions that are able to replace fossil fuels with solar power. Solar energy is thousands of times greater than all fossil fuel supplies.
We can all survive temperature rises through use of the right technologies. No one can survive without oxygen.
