Globull Warming Could Make “Finding Nemo” Fish Deaf


BBC: Acid oceans turn ‘Finding Nemo’ fish deaf

Clownfish, the spectacular tropical species feted in the movie Finding Nemo, appear to lose their hearing in water slightly more acidic than normal.

If you’re using a children’s cartoon movie fish to make your anthropogenic global warming point, you’ve already lost the debate

At levels of acidity that may be common by the end of the century, the fish did not respond to the sounds of predators.

The oceans are becoming more acidic because they absorb much of the CO2 that humanity puts into the atmosphere.

See? Mankind’s fault. Except, once again, we get the uber scientific word “may,” as in, they’re taking a big guess. Good thing the atmospheric content of CO2, which would lead to higher ocean CO2, has never been higher than today….wait, it has?

One resembled the seawater of today, with the atmosphere containing about 390 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide.

The other tanks were set at levels that could be reached later this century – 600, 700 and 900 ppm.

Atmospheric CO2 was as high as 3,000 ppm 65 million years ago. How’d fish survive…..adaption, you say? Funny how Darwinism goes right out the window when alarmists (and enviroweenies) want to make an unhinged scary point.

Anyhow, scientists are really concerned about ocean acidification (except, the oceans are considered to be alkaline at the moment)

Just this weekend, another team of researchers published findings from a “natural laboratory” in the seas off Papua New Guinea, where carbon dioxide bubbles into the water from the slopes of a dormant volcano.

This local acidity is too much for most corals; instead, an alternative ecosystem based on seagrasses thrives.

How dare AAffterwit at Raised On Hoecakes cause this…..oh, sorry, volcanoes are natural occurrences.

But, you know why they keep pushing this fake science? Because they feel the money is

    Deaf? When did fish start growing ears?

    The “lateral line” is not an ear, it’s a sensor for small pressure changes in the water. Similar, but not the same.

    You’re right – how silly of me. I denounce myself.

    WHAT??!? Whad’he say?!?

  4. I’m just waiting for the one about AGW making fish impotent, and needing to dump Viagra in the oceans.
