surely this will awaken the deep ones, says increasingly despondent cultist
"This study shows that human activities are dissolving the geological record at the bottom of the ocean," says Arbic. "This is important because the geological record provides evidence for natural and anthropogenic changes." Yeah, the idea that the damage we're doing is so significant it could erase the ability of potential survivors to be able to understand the past is pretty boring.
Do you just not give a shit about the Earth? Like, no matter how overblown or over-exaggerated news about the environment is, this is still an objectively bad thing that can't be spun around to be good and ideally, shouldn't be happening. I don't understand how you can be this dismissive unless you just don't care about what we do to the environment.
I dont get how this is being caused.
And the ocean floor dissolving will counteract rising sea levels! Take that, libtards!
It's just preparing to throw people into hell
I think that's better than living underwater once all of the ice poles dissolve.
Could we manually dump calcium on an industrial scale to continually counteract the acid?
You want a skeleton invasion? That's how you get a skeleton invasion.
Might end up with too much calcium/other metals in the food chain. Not sure what effects that'd have or how much is too much mind you
The ocean is becoming more acidic due to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which is eating away at the seabed slowly. Its the same as putting a tooth in a water bottle and adding carbonation to the water which dissolves the tooth over time due to the acidity.
I like how it feels like literally everything on Earth is feeling the effects of climate change, and yet humans just kind of go "oh, hm. well that's a thing". I know there's not much individuals can do, but entire governments are sticking their heads in sand because money is just that more important. It's goddamn infuriating at this point. We're already utterly screwed at this point, but hey we can still make it worse just to create some incredibly temporary value for shareholders!
Can we go a day without reminding me that we're fucked and I can't do anything about it?
What? I can't hear you over the roar of my Lambo big oil gave me to look the other way! *revs engine*
the beatings will continue until morale improves
At this point im seriously considering dumping some savings on canned food and water.
For fuck's sakes can the environmental situation get any more moribdly comical and depressing? Are the news about the state of our planet going to keep escalating more and more until the entire fucking sphere is going to crack in half after being filled to the brim with shit and skulls?
Not to mention, even completely ignoring the natural escalations of feedback - the world community chose a really bad fucking time to embrace far-right extremism. Trump pulled out of Climate Accords/denies man made Climate Change, and Bolsonaro wants to allow deforestation of the Amazon.
All of the political shit around the world is greatly concerning and does indeed seem like it happened at the worst possible time. I suppose it could be argued that there is no right time for far right extremism in general but in one situation you have a clusterfuck that is happening to humanity only with the planet being mostly fine and in the other one you are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Guess this is what happens after we beat Mom and unlock the rest of the game.
i'm wondering if it might have some impact on the ring of fire
I wonder if there was ever a fictional work that loosely dealt with this scenario. Gears of War sort of does it with the war torn earth spewing monstrosities but I do not recall it mentioning anything about the oceans.
this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_of_Fire
Pacific Rim hits this but it's caused by an earthquake not anthropogenic factors
Hell is other people
