Plankton is life


Carbon dioxide is not the main problem.... Even if we became carbon neutral tomorrow, atmospheric CO2 will still pass 500ppm and oceanic pH will still drop below pH7.95, and all coral reefs including most marine life will simply dissolve, along with the food supply for 2 billion people and any chance of stopping climate change.

We could survive climate change, we will not survive the total destruction of the oceans in less than 25 years.

The GOES Report ... COP26 Presentation..... Actions and solutions

The slide below is the contents of 100ml of seawater that we collected from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean 1000km from land. Its full of plastic fibres and thousands of particles of partially combusted carbon that contain carcinogenic PHAS (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and heavy metals. The carbon comes from the burning of fossil fuels, 300 million tonnes a year is burnt by the shipping industry and 1 million tonnes of sub 50um particles end up in the oceans every year.

We have wiped out more than 90% of life in the Equatorial Atlantic. Other reports confirm 50% loss of krill in the North Atlantic.

Given that plankton are the life support system for the planet, humanity is finished unless we take action now. #climatechange #hydrocarbons #food #marine #shipping
