David Attenborough's documentary - The Death of Oceans - contains the false concept that coral is decimated by global warming and ocean acidification. I claim that these are false concepts. The real culprit of coral bleaching is suntan cream.

Hello. I believe that Global warming, CO2, etc has caused the death of evaporation. Think, Oceans are dying due to coral bleaching. Suntan lotion rarely goes that low because it is buoyant. The ocean water then breaks up the sun tan lotion into normal elements of the earths surface and atmosphere. Because of this, I will prove the affects of global warming and CO2.

1. CO2 binds to water molecules to form a acidic liquid. This is called, you guessed it- acidifications

2. Global warming causes mass evaporation and gets rid of sea water and water level.

Reply - This doesn't make any sense?

Quote - Suntan lotion rarely goes that low because it is buoyant.

Reply - Suntan creams are made of metallic elements. Metals are heavier than water. Studies have found trace elements of oxybenzene in dead coral.

Reply - The ocean is a big place. The ocean hasn't increased in acidification. There are no records of any increase. Thus, it is just a matter of scaremongering by scientists so they can get a free holiday on a tropical reef doing bogus research.

Note - Any increase in CO2 in the ocean would be transferred immediately into new coral material. That's why we have large amounts on limestone all over the Earth. Limestone is a repository of CO2.

Quote - Global warming causes mass evaporation and gets rid of sea water and water level.

Reply - The Earth is like a gigantic thermostat. Any increase in heat will cause more cloud formation which will result in more cooling. Thus, the Earth maintains an even temperature regardless of any temperature fluctuation from the sun's output. Note - The sun is the only substantial form of heating that the Earth has.

He keeps citing this doctor called Anotoine Bechamp who was the rival of Pasteur and whose theories were proven false by Pasteur.

Yup, that's happening to me. He's switching back and forth between wild medicinal theories such as anesthetics cause infections, iodine cures all diseases, bad diet causes all diseases, cells turn into bacteria and bacteria turn into cells, all diseases are caused by insecticides/pesticides, etc. He won't seem to make up his mind and give me a solid base to attack.

You don't relate anything to the main topic. That is why I'm not going to debate with an ignorant little kid.

You make no sense! It's almost like you are bipolar but in writing. You switch between multiple sides of a topic but don't elaborate on it. You are wrong! How is the death of coral causing ocean acidification. How? This relates nothing to the topic.

Too many star fish means white/dead coral dig?
