    Save The Coccolithophores

    Found this just in time to help increase carbon dioxide output into the atmosphere. If we curb CO2, then we run the risk of placing coccolithophores on the Endangered Species list. These little buggers need CO2 to help build their tiny shells. They need these shells to protect themselves from the coccolithoviruses. Coccolithophores help clean the air of CO2 so animals can breathe easier.

    Climate change would actually be more harmful than helpful to humans and animals everywhere.

    We must increase CO2 outputs to keep Nature in balance. If not, we all could go extinct.

    Make sure you do your part and contact your representatives and tell them, for the sake of the planet, to vote against ANY climate change legislation that would help eliminate CO2 from our atmosphere....

    WE NEED CO2!!!!!

    From APOD:

    "Trillions have died in the Earth's seas. Calcified shields of the dead already make up the white cliffs of Dover. The battle between ball-shaped light-colored single-celled plants -- phytoplankton called coccolithophores -- and even smaller, diamond-shaped viruses dubbed coccolithoviruses -- has raged for tens of millions of years. To help fight this battle, the coccolithophores create their chalky armor by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This battle is so epic that coccolithophores actually remove a significant fraction of Earth's atmospheric carbon dioxide, bolstering the breathability of air for animals including humans. Pictured in this 2012 image from NASA's Aqua satellite, the Black Sea was turned light blue by coccolithophore blooms."

    Small potatoes.

    Plants take in CO2 and expel oxygen. Without CO2, no plants and no oxygen...thus, no US. Less CO2, fewer plants...eventual starvation, no US.

    But, if we could just save one baby coccolithophore, it would all be worth it.

    I've always been confused about how having warmer temperatures and more CO2 was going to result in all the plant life dying off.

    The same logic that tells them oceans will rise if the ice caps melt.

    or that Guam will capsize if more military infrastructure is built...
