Looks like ocean acidification was made up too

The supporters of global warming theory always come up with new doomsday scenarios, usually when the last one failed.

The latest one that is pushed hard is ocean acidification as a result of global warming…except it looks like it is as fraudulent and Michael Mann’s hockey stick.

James Delingpole explains:

Ocean acidification is said to be caused when excess atmospheric carbon dioxide is absorbed by the sea, reducing its pH levels to make it more acidic.

But, as Watts Up With That reports new evidence unearthed by an inquisitive graduate student suggests that ?ocean acidification? may be a scientific fraud to rank with the great ?man-made-global warming? scare.

At the centre of the scandal is NOAA, the US federal scientific agency which measures and researches changes in the oceans and atmosphere, and which maintains one of the temperature datasets used to measure ?global warming.?

One of NOAA?s departments ? the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) ? also happens to be one of the mainstays of the alarmist narrative about ?ocean acidification.?

A 2004 paper by two of PMEL?s senior oceanographers ? Dr Richard Feely and Dr Christopher Sabine ? is often cited in support of ?ocean acidification? theory and is reproduced, in simplified form, at NOAA?s website. ?It also formed part of testimony that Feely gave to Congress in 2010, again to the effect that increasing atmospheric CO2 is causing a reduction in seawater pH. ?
