coral reefs, the regulating organism …

Ecologist Dr Jim Steele writes yet another superb article on the connections between coral, algae, CO2 and pH. Makes complete sense.

[…] Overall observations of the effects of photosynthesis and calcification reveal coral reefs are not victims of a fall of pH from 8.2 to 8.1 pH as suggested by Caldeira and Wickett 2005, Doney 2009 or Hoegh-Guldberg (2014). On the contrary as Gaia theory would suggest, coral reefs are actively regulating surface pH.

Jim Steele is author of Landscapes & Cycles: An Environmentalist’s Journey to Climate Skepticism

Even James Lovelock has renounced the Green religion.  James was an original warmist, along with Al Gore.

Must remember, very low tides exposing coral reef around Broome beaches in 2 weeks! Looking forward to it.
