Carbon Dioxide Is 'Driving Fish Crazy'
ScienceDaily ^ | Jan. 20, 2012 | ScienceDaily

Posted on 01/20/2012 7:02:58 PM PST by dila813

Rising human carbon dioxide emissions may be affecting the brains and central nervous system of sea fishes with serious consequences for their survival, an international scientific team has found.

Carbon dioxide concentrations predicted to occur in the ocean by the end of this century will interfere with fishes' ability to hear, smell, turn and evade predators, says Professor Philip Munday of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University.

Holy Carp!

It would seem to me that if levels were high enough to bother fish, that humans would be the first concern.

I guess that’s 1950s Father Knows Best, neanderthal, white man thinking and all.

My first concern would be if the fish could still find the hook.

The earth has seen far higher amounts of carbon dioxide in the air in the past, and yet somehow these fish managed not to go “crazy” enough to die off (or else evolution furnished them to us today). Why has Gaia gone brittle all of a sudden?

Prof. Munday and his colleagues began by studying how baby clown and damsel fishes performed

Of course, the women and children fish will be hardest hit.

Oh, and the clowns, of course. Sad clowns.

It is my opinion, “Professor Munday”, if that’s really your title, that YOU are consuming far too much oxygen as to benefit mankind, and you should cease immediately.

So, one of the main gasses released from volcanoes is carbon dioxide and yet fish survive.

The amount CO2 emissions created by humans over our history can’t even be close to what a volcano emits in one eruption. Just say’n

If so, won't it slow down the predators, as well?

Moreover another member of this institute is complaining about the dropping number of reef sharks. He says that healthy reefs need more sharks--i.e., predators. Maybe they should get together on the same wavelength.

Yeah, now that the "Global Warming" scam to rape taxpayers of $BILLION$ has been blown right out of the water, the sphincters need a new "carbon dioxide" straw man to threaten us with.

We should just shoot these azzholes whenever and wherevenr they crop up... like playing "Whack A Mole." You see one, you whack it.

No kidding. Every green plant uses carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, releasing oxygen as a byproduct. A surfeit of CO2 would produce more lush forests, greener grass, all from more oxygen being infused into our atmosphere. Atmospheric CO2 affects the environment differently from aqueous solutions of it in the water table or oceans... which is merely to say that it wouldn't affect oceanic algae production as much as it would land-based vegetation.

Nothing but plusses all around.

I wonder how much he was paid to do this study ?
Probably a lot more than it was worth !!
When was the last time you tried to figure out a budget for your family, and computed it for the end of the century ? (Some 88 years into the future ?)

In 88 years there will be no fishermen thanks to the EPA ,DEC , the Transportation Dept , and NOAA ... so...??

A surfeit of CO2 would produce more lush forests, greener grass,

And at one time our planets atmosphere had very high concentrations of CO2 and plants DID thrive. But then nature balanced it out and the type of plants did not thrive because the CO2 lessened.

It is a cycle and from what I have read from scientists our planet has gone through the cycle several times. So....

Nothing to see here, move along, move along...
