Oceans acidic shift fastest in 300 million years

The world’s oceans are turning acidic at what could be the fastest pace of any time in the past 300 million years.

Sinful man destroy God's creation at the fastest speed ever. Only Jesus can save us.

Even more rapidly than during a monster emission of planet-warming carbon 56 million years ago, scientists said on Thursday.

Quickly acidifying seawater eats away at coral reefs, which provide habitat for other animals and plants, and makes it harder for mussels and oysters to form protective shells. It can also interfere with small organisms that feed commercial fish like salmon.

The phenomenon has been a top concern of Jane Lubchenco, the head of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who has conducted demonstrations about acidification during hearings in the U.S. Congress.

Oceans get more acidic when more carbon gets into the atmosphere. In pre-industrial times, that occurred periodically in natural pulses of carbon that also pushed up global temperatures, the scientists wrote.

Human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels, have increased the level of atmospheric carbon to 392 parts per million from about 280 parts per million at the start of the industrial revolution. Carbon dioxide is one of several heat-trapping gases that contribute to global warming.

To figure out what ocean acidification might have done in the prehistoric past, 21 researchers from the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain reviewed studies of the geological record going back 300 million years, looking for signs of climate disruption.

Those indications of climate change included mass extinction events, where substantial percentages of living things on Earth died off, such as the giant asteroid strike thought to have killed the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago.

The events that seemed similar to what is happening now included mass extinctions about 252 million and 201 million years ago, as well as the warming period 56 million years in the past.

he researchers reckoned the 5,000-year hot spell 56 million years ago, likely due to factors like massive volcanism, was the closest parallel to current conditions at any time in the 300 million years.

My comment:

That the Worlds oceans are dying, is yet another sign of the end times on Planet Earth.

The Bible explains that the Great Tribulation will be worse than the “horror shows” people watch on TV.

So why not switch to the Bible, and use the Word of God as your guide to a correct understanding of our times?

Revelation 8:11
the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

Revelation 8:9
a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Revelation 16:3
The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.

All who are willing to read the Bible will see what  would take place just before His return. When you see these kind of events take place just in front of your eyes, rejoice.

The living God Jesus is fully in control. Those who submit to Him shall live forever. Amen.

  1. 300,000,000 years!!! What system do they use for measuring such dates and is it really scientific in the true sense???

  2. Actually, those dates are approximations based on the “geologic column”. But the geologic column is based on speculated long dates, so it is a bit of a circular argument. The evolutionists needed long dates to propose their theories and the geologists, starting with Charles Lyell (a close friend of Darwin’s) obliged, even though they could not know the length of time it took to deposit various layers in the geologic column. They estimated them based on present deposition but that did not account for periods of violent volcanism or flood activity where many layers of silt, (or ash and lava rock) and sedimentary rock are laid down in a very short period of time. When they looked at the deposits made by the eruption of Mount St. Helens (in 1980), had they not known that the layers were made in a matter of hours—because of direct observation—they would have thought that they were made over much longer periods of time. Because mankind was here to observe the world-wide Flood (there are tales of a world-wide Flood among nearly every people group in the world), one has a tendency to think that the estimated long-dates are vastly inflated.

  3. Reading Genesis one…G-d tells us the seasons and harvest times will never end..and HE made the earth in six days..not any more..there is no such thing as global warming, a lie of the devil..and men do not help as they go about spraying daily and killing many, probalby the way the left is trying to kill of man kind from 7 billion to 3 so they think. Gmo foods ..all of us know not the day or hour but HE said we would know the seasons and like the days of Noah were. and that when Israel becomes a nation that it would be us who are alive will still be standing. and all things are in place and lined up according to scripture as the great falling away is here..world wide. For believers in is joy but to us who believe it is sad too because so many will face the tribulation..some dont even believe in the rapture tho true because of the be-headings but we are in the time of sorrows..I see it like a women giving birth as each period lines up with the spring and fall feasts and at the end brings LIFE forever for all that believe..G-d tells us when we see all this to look up because our redemption draws near.. shalom
